Review: Home the Hard Way by Z.A. Maxfield

Review: Home the Hard Way by Z.A. Maxfield

So many elements in a story I love- hero comes home, small town setting, childhood friend turned love interest, a mystery.  I was prepared to get cozy and enjoy, but I wasn’t prepared for just how visceral this book would feel from the moment I started reading.  This book was so atmospheric and tangible.  It just reached out and grabbed… Read more »

Review: Stranded With a Billionaire by Jessica Clare

Review: Stranded With a Billionaire by Jessica Clare

Summer-themed reading was my goal in picking up a batch of books to try and this was one of them.  I know the cover doesn’t exactly shout this, but it does count even if the beach and island resort portion was only the first portion of the book.  The story is a modern fairy-tale style between a working class renaissance… Read more »

Review: Hard Time by Cara McKenna

Review: Hard Time by Cara McKenna

Okay, I chose to venture into something different with this read. I’ve read a few ‘prison’ romances, but usually after the guy was out or escaped or something. This was the first one I picked up when the guy is still doing his time. Call it curiosity or what have you, but I grabbed it up and settled in. For… Read more »

Review: Wounded Courage by S.M. Butler

Review: Wounded Courage by S.M. Butler

Okay, I tried, I really did.  I was so eager to read this book because of the blurb and I love military romances, but man…there’s only so much I could take with this heroine and the improbable plot that surrounds her. I pushed through to chapter eight which is about one-third of the way and had to give it up. … Read more »

Review: The Trouble With Harry by Katie MacAlister

Review: The Trouble With Harry by Katie MacAlister

I really didn’t bother looking beyond the fact that this was part of Katie MacAlister’s Noble series because I just knew it would be a gamer.  I have to say that I enjoyed this one more than book two, but I’m not sure if it quite nudges out book one in the favorite of the series.  Espionage, hellion children, bigamous… Read more »

Review: Sharp Love by Ava March

Review: Sharp Love by Ava March

I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I was eager to pick up the sequel.  I got a little surprise when it took place chronologically at the same time as the other story, but with different main characters.  It was refreshing to have the heroes being from the working class poor and the story set in the… Read more »
