Review: Reaper’s Fire by Joanna Wylde

If anyone asks me what my favorite MC romance series is, Reaper’s MC by Joanna Wylde would be my answer. That was true then, and it still stands true now. That said, I didn’t quite love Reaper’s Fire as much as I did the others. Reaper’s Fire is Gage and Tinker’s story. And it runs parallel to Reaper’s Fall. If you haven’t read that book, I suggest you read it prior to reading this because a lot of the backstory of Gage and his mission in Tinker’s town was discussed in that book. I actually loved the premise of this book. Gage is sent to spy on and get closed to an MC that’s been giving the Reaper’s trouble in one of their territories. Gage’s “in” was the sister of the MC president. Both the president and the sister are running the MC to the ground, and Gage must try to diffuse the situation long enough for the Reaper’s come in. Complicating his mission is Tinker Garret. Gage is attracted to her and wants her, but since he has to pretend to be with the sister of the MC president, he can’t really do that. Like I said, I liked the premise. And while I understand that other […]

Review: Ruthless by Lexi Blake

I was coming off a horrible book slump prior to reading this book. I was desperate to end that slump. Enter Ruthless by Lexi Blake. From the first chapter alone, I knew I was going to have a winner. Riley and his siblings waited years for the opportunity to finally exact revenge from the people who killed their parents. Their first mark is Ellie Stratton, daughter of one of their targets. Their revenge starts to unravel when Riley’s feelings for Ellie deepens. Suddenly, revenge became messy and complicated, and Riley must choose between his family and his feelings for Ellie. The plot was fairly straightforward with a few surprises along the way that made me question a few things. What I didn’t question though was the connection between Riley and Ellie. The moment they met, their chemistry leaps off the page. I loved how their story started off on the wrong foot and Riley spending pretty much half of the book begging Ellie to take him back. You guys know I love some good grovel, right? Well this book has some of the best. Another aspect that I loved about this book was the pacing. This book reads fast, or maybe it felt fast because I was thoroughly […]

Review: Into the Blue by Chanel Cleeton

I discovered and fell in love with Chanel Cleeton’s writing when I read her Capital Confessions series. Her stories are a perfect mix of sweet with a touch of angst thrown in. Into the Blue perfectly represents what makes this author work for me. Becca Madison and Eric Jansen are two people who are in love with each other but are being pulled in different directions by their ambition and their quest to find themselves. They went from being in love and engaged to nothing. Eric walked away to become a F-16 fighter pilot while Maddie stayed home to become a successful lawyer. The devastation that it brought almost destroyed Maddie. She was the one who was left behind. While I’m not saying that Eric heart wasn’t affected, at least he had everything to gain in their break-up. It took me a while to warm up to Eric’s character, to be honest. I thought that the way he broke up with Maddie was shitty and the fact that he stayed away for 10 years made me question his love for Maddie at first. I understood his motivation but it’s still heartbreaking to see how much it destroyed Maddie. But Ms. Cleeton was able to show readers the growth […]

ARC Review: Stay Until We Break (Hub City #2) by Mercy Brown

“The only problem with having Cole McCormack as your chronic masturbation fantasy is that he’s everybody’s chronic masturbation fantasy—and he knows it.” I have been waiting for Cole and Sonia’s story ever since I’ve read Loud is How I Love You a few months ago. I knew their story was going to be good and hot. I expected it just based on the chemistry they had going on. What I did not expect was the gut wrenching, emotional punch it brought. It slayed me. I did not expect that. Stay Until We Break starts off with a bang. Stars on the Floor are on the road, hoping to catch a big break and get signed by a label, make their dreams come true. For Cole and Sonia, it’s a chance to explore the attraction they’ve had for one another. But Sonia isn’t quite sure about Cole because one, he’s a rock star with a reputation. Two, she’s not at all the confident girl she wanted to be, or the kind of girl that a guy like Cole would notice. For Cole, it’s much more complicated than that. He’s torn between pursuing his dream and his passion and his responsibilities. My heart just broke for him. I though he […]

Review: Allegiance of Honor (Psy-Changeling #15) by Nalini Singh

The Psy-Changeling universe is as vast and as complex as the characters that inhabit them. Which is why, the Psy-Changeling series from Nalini Singh is undoubtly my favorite PNR series ever. Granted, I’ve not read that many PNR but when I do, I tend to measure them against this series. Allegiance of Honor takes place after the events in Shards of Hope. Or thereabouts. It’s post silence. The Consortium is now but a shadow of its former glory and a new power block is emerging. One that is committed to give Changelings, humans and Psys a chance to live in peace. But there are obstacles in the way, and the Dark River leopards, the Snow Dancer wolves, the former Arrows and former allied Psys must confront these unseen enemies. There was so much happening in this book. This book was so encompassing in its scope that it can be sometimes overwhelming. Allegiance of Honor is part extended epilogue, and part prequel. It connects all the overarching plot points from the previous books to future ones. We get to touch base with the previous couples in the series, get caught up with their lives after their HEA, see how some of the villains are coping with their loss of […]

ARC Review: The Billionaire’s Favorite Mistake

Jessica Clare once again delivers a well rounded story filled with swoony romance, delicious steamy scenes and everything in between. The Billionaire’s Favorite Mistake is jam-packed with everything I’ve come to love about this series. Just for context sake, the Billionaires and Bridesmaids series is a spin-off from the Billionaire Boys Club. It revolves around the wedding preparation of one of the couples from the BBC series and their wedding party: the grooms men and the bridesmaids. The story is interconnected but in my opinion, you can still read this as a standalone. Although, reading it in order is definitely much more preferable as it enhances one’s reading experience. Anyway, this is the fourth book in the series, which I have been waiting for ever since book one and saw the seeds being sown for this book and this pairing. So yes, I’ve been waiting for Asher and Greer’s story ever since the first book so my expectations are crazy high. Asher started off as a jerk. I was worried he wouldn’t be able to redeem himself but I was worried for nothing because after he realized he fucked up, he worked on winning Greer’s heart. There’s nothing hotter than a man who realizes he fucked up and […]

ARC Review: The Obsession by Nora Roberts

This book reminded me why I love Nora Roberts. And although I haven’t picked up a Nora Roberts book in a long time, I still count her as one of the greats who really fed on my romance addiction. From the engaging plot to the cast of complex and layered characters, The Obsession grabbed my attention from the very first page. And when I say first page, I mean that literally. Holy freakin’ prologue is what it was. It was creepy and scary and had this sinister feel that really put the readers right into the middle of the action. Naomi was about to turn 12 years old when she discovered the true nature her father and the extent of his crimes. It was one of be most gripping sequences in book and like I mentioned above, I was hooked. The plot moved quickly taking us through the aftermath of her discovery and how she and the remaining members of her family dealt with it. It showed readers how much her father’s notoriety affected Naomi’s view about relationships and her reticence in having people know about her. Things get even more exciting the moment the book caught up to the present. The present being Naomi having just bought […]
