Review: Darkness Awakened by Katie Reus

Review: Darkness Awakened by Katie Reus

A reunion romance paranormal style seemed all kinds of good so I picked this one up and dove right in. Literally, it turned out because this one was off to the races from the very first moment and didn’t slow down for much. The plot, characters and backdrop were introduced quickly and action and passion were the driving features of… Read more »

Review: Melt Into You by Roni Loren

Review: Melt Into You by Roni Loren

This one is the second in a series that I’ve come to love, but I’m all over the place when it comes to reading the series. I read books four and five and then one and now two- see, all over. But I wanted to at least read this one before I read for review the novella follow-up with this… Read more »

Review: The Sweetheart Secret by Shirley Jump

Review: The Sweetheart Secret by Shirley Jump

Some story scenarios just catch my attention and I can’t resist them like small town romances and reunion romances. In this case, it was a double bonus because I already enjoy this series and author for her heartwarming small town setting and tender yet tough romances, for her characters that desperately need love and of course for her inclusion of… Read more »

Review: Desperate Hearts by Rosanne Bittner

Review: Desperate Hearts by Rosanne Bittner

I tried a book by this author once before and absolutely loved it so naturally when the opportunity came up, I enthusiastically grabbed this one for a read.  The Historic Wild West in all its facets just comes alive in this author’s written word.  Her ability to blend a nice spicy romance against the gritty settings and engaging plots is… Read more »

Sunday Summary for August 31, 2014

Reviews Current Giveaways What’s going on? Physical Therapy blues…going three times a week has really cut into my reading time. But the good news I can walk up and down stairs again. Tennis shoes or a shoe with a back is still causing problems, but I can see improvements. I have been reading only one book this week and it… Read more »

Review: Ghost Layer by Robin D. Owens

Review: Ghost Layer by Robin D. Owens

I went into this sequel with the attitude that while I wasn’t blown away by the first book, I still saw plenty of good stuff to want to continue the series.  After shutting the last page on the book, I’m left with an odd feeling.  In a nutshell, I was dissatisfied that both separately and together, Claire and Zach didn’t… Read more »

Review: Playing With Fire by Cynthia Eden

The Delight I have mixed emotions about this story. It runs on adrenaline from beginning to end and I just wanted off the ride as some points. The romance is fast and furious with little time to breath in between battles. I think I would have like just a little time where fear wasn’t in the back of my mind…. Read more »

Review: Night Unbound by Dianne Duvall #ImmortalGoodness

The Delight A female Guardian! Seriously she was changed so long ago, she is just one of the guys. No conflict in the romance department. It was smooth sailing. A delightful addition the Immortal Guardians series. The Immortal Guardians series has been hit or miss with me. I will love one book and then feel *meh* about the next. So… Read more »

Review: In Her Wake by K.A. Tucker

Review: In Her Wake by K.A. Tucker

Whew! *wipes sweat from brow*  That was a workout for my emotions.  I knew this novella would be impactive and a tough read, but knowing and experiencing are not the same.  Bottomline?  I’m glad the author wrote this one and that I was brave enough to read it though I was almost a coward and skipped it because I was… Read more »

Sophia’s Reading Challenge Update for August 2014

As summer winds down- at an alarming rate, its time to put together a monthly reading post already.  August is one of the longer months, but oddly, it is historically one of my least productive months for reading in a year because its one of my busiest outside of December.  My annual summer trek west to visit the folks and… Read more »
