Review: Good Boy (WAGs #1) Elle Kennedy & Sarina Bowen

I have a soft spot for heroines who are struggling to find the right career or find the right person or generally just finding somewhere to belong. Jessica Canning grew up in the boisterous Canning clan, who are in Jess’ mind, “a bunch of overachievers.” She’s restless and totally freaked out that she hasn’t found her calling, so to speak, yet. Blake Riley is the exact opposite. Confident and self assured, Blake goes tackles life with gusto. When he meets Jess, he immediately pursues her the only way he knows how: by putting himself on her way and being obnoxious whenever possible. Admittedly, I wasn’t fan of Blake at first. He’s too loud. And too obnoxious. But man oh man, halfway through the book, I started to get all the feels for Blake and was into team Jeblake all the way. Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy continues to be a powerhouse writing team, churning out fun, hilarious and sweet romances like the boss that they are. I loved the interaction between the characters, the little hockey tidbits, and I get to see Jamie and Wes again enjoying their HEA. Good Boy is going to be the first book in the new Him spinoff series called WAGs. And just […]

Release Blitz {Spotlight+Excerpt}: Almost a Bride by Jo Watson

Excerpt I knew something was wrong the second I walked up to my front door. Call it intuition. Call it a sixth sense. But I just knew. I blame the shoes. The shoes were undoubtedly the cause of all the problems that day. It was the shoes’ fault that I came home early, and the shoes’ fault I was fired. I suppose I can’t blame the shoes for making me late, though—that was the alarm clock’s fault for rudely deciding not to do its job. And when I finally realized, through the thick haze of sleepiness, that it hadn’t gone off, it was too late. I was already late for work. And when I say work, I mean my brand-new job—job of my dreams—as a fashion assistant at Glamorous Girl mag. I’d just made a total career change, leaving behind a successful job as a stylist in advertising to pursue a job in the magazine industry. It was early days, so I was still desperately trying to impress by being perfect, polite, and oh so obliging. Whether it was the request for the latte to be served at 97.7 degrees with no sugar, soy milk froth, and a sprinkling of organic cocoa powder flown in directly from the […]

Blog Tour {Q&A + Review}: Raw Deal by Cherrie Lynn

Raw Deal Blog Tour: Author Q&A How would you describe Raw Deal using no more than 140 characters (a la Twitter)? Undeniable passion ignites between a fighter and the heartbroken sister of the man he accidentally killed in the MMA cage. Which scene would you say was the hardest for you to write? Definitely the final fight. Any time I write something action-heavy, which isn’t very often (unless it’s sex, haha), I find it terribly difficult and tedious. “This happened and that happened and so on.” And then to take it and make sure it doesn’t look like I found it difficult and tedious presents its own set of challenges. I can only hope I pulled it off, because I’m a terrible judge of my own work. Where do you get inspiration for the names of your characters? Michael’s and Savannah’s names simply came into my head and felt right. A lot of times, however, I torture myself trying to find the perfect character name, poring through baby name websites for inspiration. Some characters are named by accident. For instance, when I first introduced Brian Ross in Unleashed, I never planned for him to have his own book. So I just sort of stuck a name on him. […]

Satisfaction (Lawless #2) by Lexi Blake

I was very excited to read this book because Bran was a stood out to me in the first book, and I wanted to read his story so bad. And while I did like and enjoy this one, it wasn’t the same level of enjoyment as the first book. Satisfaction started off slow, which I normally wouldn’t mind as long as it gives me character development and some plot development too. But sometimes, some of the scenes felt like filler to me. And it didn’t really help that this book also had to set up the next book in the series, which by the way I am totally looking forward to because hello, Drew seems like an asshole I would really like. But I digress. This was took too much time setting up other story lines that it forgot about its main couple: Carly and Bran. I liked them but I found them a bit bland, especially Carly. She’s a nice enough heroine but her personality is a bit blah. Even when she was together with Bran. They have some chemistry but again, I feel like their relationship was an afterthought. The best part about this book though was the climax where secrets are starting to come out. […]

Review: Hard Hitter (Brooklyn Bruisers #2) by Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen has been consistently delivering heartfelt romances with really strong characters, and Hard Hitter is another Bowen book that I enjoyed thoroughly. Patrick O’Doul is one of NHL’s top enforcer for years. But now age is catching up to him. I have to say that Patrick is probably Sarina’s most self-contained hero. I found it very hard to get a feel for what he’s all about. But I love me some grumpy, taciturn heroes so it came as no surprise that I fell hard for his character, especially his backstory. Ari is the same thing. I started the book not quite sure what she’s all about. At first, I thought that Ari was very much like the hero which worried me a bit because I like it a lot more when there’s contrast between the hero’s personality and the heroine. Chemistry, opposites attract and all that jazz. But again, Sarina’s writing, the way she crafted these characters made a believer out of me. I absolutely enjoyed reading how they both started to change their perception about each other and their feelings start to grow. The pace of their romance was just right. And like Rookie Move, there are plenty of interaction between Patrick and his teammates. And […]
