REVIEW: Hail Mary by Nicola Rendell

I didn't know what I was getting into when I chose Hail Mary on a whim because Ms. Rendell is a new-to-me author.  What drew me in was the suggestive cover and then blurb which was pretty funny, so why the hell not! From the moment Mary accidentally knocks out Jimmy "The Falcon" Falconi out at a … Continue reading REVIEW: Hail Mary by Nicola Rendell

REVIEW: The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan

The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan My rating: 4 of 5 stars First...the covers just get better with each book in this series. OK, I'm good now...*deep dreamy sigh* I've been intrigued by Ethan "Dex" Dexter since the beginning of the Game On series. He's quiet and mysterious -- not even his closest friends know … Continue reading REVIEW: The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan

REVIEW: Fighting Wrath (Deadly Sins #2) by Jennifer Miller

I thoroughly enjoyed book 1 of the Deadly Sins series, Fighting Envy.  I was eagerly awaiting Rowan's twin brother, Tyson's book.   Fighting Wrath picks up a few months after Fighting Envy left off.  Tyson is out of jail, he's working, training for a professional MMA match and he's getting used to living on his own … Continue reading REVIEW: Fighting Wrath (Deadly Sins #2) by Jennifer Miller

REVIEW: The Friend Zone (Game On #2) by Kristen Callihan

The cover.... I was one of the readers who wasn't fond of the first cover for Book 1 in this series, The Hook Up, so I'm oh so thrilled that Ms. Callihan decided to make a change that does these young footballers the justice they deserve! We met Gray Grayson in The Hook Up. He's … Continue reading REVIEW: The Friend Zone (Game On #2) by Kristen Callihan

ARC REVIEW: Laid Out (Worth the Fight #4) by Sidney Halston

♦♦♦ RELEASE DATE AUGUST 18TH ♦♦♦ We've met Violet and Cain previously in the Worth the Fight series. Even though there's some minor backstory from Below the Belt (book 3), readers can easily pick up Laid Out as a standalone without missing a beat. I do recommend you go back and read the other couples' stories in … Continue reading ARC REVIEW: Laid Out (Worth the Fight #4) by Sidney Halston

A book with a sexy Russian hockey player...SIGN ME UP! When Mick comes to Julia for French lessons, there's instant attraction. Julia and Mick flirt and banter right off the bat. Mick's awkward grasp of English colloquialisms...totally adorbs! "Strong is good. Puts hair on palms." Additionally, I found Julia's awkwardness to be endearing and her reticence … Continue reading ARC REVIEW: Fire and Ice by A.M. Hartnett

REVIEW: Garrett (Cold Fury Hockey #2) by Sawyer Bennett

Garrett is the unapologetic king of one night stands but he's not bitter or relationship-averse... "My parents have an amazingly long marriage, and I respect that. I honestly think I’ve just been young and carefree. Sowing my oats, so to speak. It’s what dudes do.” When Garrett meets Olivia he definitely wants her in his bed. … Continue reading REVIEW: Garrett (Cold Fury Hockey #2) by Sawyer Bennett

REVIEW: Love Hurts (Caged Love #1) by Mandi Beck

I'd heard so much about this book months before I read it. From the moment I learned that there was a cliffhanger ending I put it on the back burner in favor of reading Love Hurts once I could have its sequel ready and waiting to read right after. I'm not a bandwagon reader, but … Continue reading REVIEW: Love Hurts (Caged Love #1) by Mandi Beck

ARC REVIEW: Playing Dirty by C.L. Parker

I love a good enemies-to-lovers story usually.  What I like most about this trope is that the hero/ine are usually covering up love/lust in witty banter and antagonism. The fun is in reading how long before they give in to their feelings. Unfortunately, Playing Dirty didn't do it for me. Here, I felt that Cassidy and Shaw really didn't … Continue reading ARC REVIEW: Playing Dirty by C.L. Parker
