REVIEW: Broken Open (The Hurley Boys #2) by Lauren Dane

I’ll preface by saying that I’ve read nearly everything Lauren Dane has written and she’s an auto-buy/read for me. I always enjoy her books, particularly her take-no-bullshit heroines. Even still, I was a tad bit apprehensive to see how she’d portray a Black woman and an interracial coupling. I needn’t worried! Tuesday is a fluffy-haired … Continue reading REVIEW: Broken Open (The Hurley Boys #2) by Lauren Dane

REVIEW: Hitched (Hitched #1) by Alex Lux

Sometimes I’m in the mood for a deep, emotional read filled with tension and heart wrenching drama. When life is too busy for all that, I need books like Hitched. Hitched is a light-hearted, sexy, fun take on the ‘What Happens in Vegas' trope. Here we have Sebastian aka Dr. Sexy, a pediatric heart surgeon … Continue reading REVIEW: Hitched (Hitched #1) by Alex Lux

REVIEW: All I Want (Alabama Summer #2) by J. Daniels

We met Luke and Tessa in Where I Belong — at points their troubled romance was more intriguing than that of Ben and Mia. I enjoyed Ben and Mia, but… Luke and Tessa had a steamy summer fling which Tessa ended abruptly without telling Luke why. All I Want picks up a year after Tessa … Continue reading REVIEW: All I Want (Alabama Summer #2) by J. Daniels

REVIEW: Sweet Talk (Bakery Sisters #1) by Susan Mallery

Sweet Talk took me through a myriad of emotions. At the beginning of the book, I hated Nicole and felt so bad for Claire, yet was astounded by how incompetent a 28 y.o was in living amongst “real” people doing everyday things like driving and laundry. Later on, I hated Jesse for not grasping why … Continue reading REVIEW: Sweet Talk (Bakery Sisters #1) by Susan Mallery

REVIEW: Locke (Corps Security #5) by Harper Sloan

I’ve hung in there for this whole series even though I’ve had some issues throughout.  We met Maddox Locke in the first book and he’s had a pretty major role in his friends’ love stories throughout the series. We’ve been getting hints of the love affair between Maddox and Emmy for a while now, with … Continue reading REVIEW: Locke (Corps Security #5) by Harper Sloan

REVIEW: Where I Belong (Alabama Summer #1) by J. Daniels

I was first introduced to J. Daniels with her Sweet Addiction series a few months ago. I enjoyed her characters and her writing style…sweet, sexy, with a little angst, but not too much to be frustrating. As a anti-fan to new adult romance, something about her stories still worked for me. After falling in love … Continue reading REVIEW: Where I Belong (Alabama Summer #1) by J. Daniels

REVIEW: Stone Cold Knockout (House of Pain, #1) Lavender Parker

I found Ms. Lavender Parker last fall after seeing a review for Stone Cold Knockout on Facebook; this was my first read by the author. The blurb for SCK gave me an out-of-the-ordinary love story that I couldn’t pass up — set in NYC (my beloved hometown), multicultural cast of characters, alpha hero and a … Continue reading REVIEW: Stone Cold Knockout (House of Pain, #1) Lavender Parker

REVIEW: Mean Streak by Sandra Brown

I haven’t read a Sandra Brown novel in years. When I saw several reviews for Mean Streak on Goodreads within days of one another, I figured it was time to reacquaint myself with this author. This was a departure from my usual reads and I needed that at the time. There were a lot of characters introduced … Continue reading REVIEW: Mean Streak by Sandra Brown

REVIEW: Making His Move (When It Happens #1) by Rhyannon Byrd

Sophie Ward and Chris Riley have been secretly crushing on each other for months but thinking that the other isn’t interested. One afternoon, Sophie sends a text message meant for her best friend to Chris letting him know how she feels and all bets are off. There’s not much character development in MHM but I … Continue reading REVIEW: Making His Move (When It Happens #1) by Rhyannon Byrd

REVIEW: Alex (Cold Fury Hockey #1) by Sawyer Bennett

Alex Crossman is a hockey player for the North Carolina, Cold Fury. He hates hockey, but he’s good at it. Because of his controlling alcoholic father, he never pursued anything else beyond the sport. When we’re introduced to Alex Crossman, I was determined not to like him. He’s a supreme jerkwad to his teammates, fans … Continue reading REVIEW: Alex (Cold Fury Hockey #1) by Sawyer Bennett
