Feast your eyes on this beautiful cover…

Leah Raeder will be releasing her second novel this coming April 28th 2015. It’s called Black Iris and the cover is gorgeous! Understated. Elegant. Mysterious. I am personally loving this cover. It fits with the dark themes of this book, which is according to her publisher, “a dark, sexy, romantic suspense”. It feels so ‘noir’ to me. Speaking of themes, Black Iris is about Laney Keating…

Review: The Night We Met by Tara Taylor Quinn

What is it about? I wasn’t supposed to love Nate Grady, let alone marry him. But we found a love that triumphed over all adversity…just like Jane Eyre, my very favorite heroine. I was young, bookish, naive…on the verge of entering the convent – and then I met him…. The day I abandoned my old life, the day I agreed to marry him, now seems an eternity ago. But despite everyone’s objections, I fell for Nate. An older, previously married man. My first and only love. My husband. When I looked into Nate’s eyes on our wedding day, the rest of the world vanished. If I was crazy for doing this, I prayed the craziness would last forever….

ARC Review: Falling Away (Fall Away #3) by Penelope Douglas

About Falling Away Jaxon is the guy she’s supposed to avoid. K.C. is the girl he won’t let get away…. K. C. Carter has always followed the rules—until this year, when a mistake leaves her the talk of her college campus and her carefully arranged life comes crashing to a halt. Now she’s stuck in her small hometown for the summer to complete her court-ordered community service, and to make matters worse, trouble is living right next door. Jaxon Trent is the worst kind of temptation and exactly what K.C. was supposed to stay away from in high school. But he never forgot her. She was the one girl who wouldn’t give him the time of day and the only one to ever say no. Fate has brought K.C. back into his life—except what he thought was a great twist of luck turns out to be too close for comfort. As the bond between them grows, he discovers that convincing K.C. to get out from her mother’s shadow is hard, but revealing the darkest parts of his soul is nearly impossible.…

ARC Review: Playing by the Greek’s Rules & The Delucca’s Marriage Contract

I have a soft spot for Harlequin Presents. They got me started on my romance reading journey. Well, specifically, it was my aunt’s secret stash of HPs that got me started on reading romances back when I was 12 years old. I have since moved on and read other types of books in the genre but from time to time, I still go out of my way and read a couple of HP books.

Review: The Pact by Karina Halle

The Pact was my last book for 2014. It was marketed or tagged as a standalone, friends-to-lovers romance. Here’s the thing: I love the friends-to-lovers trope. It’s my catnip. No lie. Just look at my Goodreads read shelf and you’ll know how much I love them. Three of my favorite books last year involved characters who were friends first before becoming lovers. I usually devour them and they always — well, almost always work for me. It’s fairly hard for me to dislike a book with this trope because no matter how silly or improbable the situations are, I’d always end up liking them. In other words, I don’t think I could ever dislike a book with this trope. It’s almost impossible. I was wrong. The Pact just proved it.
