I read this as part of the Red Hot Lovers Boxed Set.  I thought it was fun that this is an Olympic year and the story features an Olympic trials hopeful in snowboarding.  This story tugged at me in two directions for over half of it and then about the last third, I finally settled in to truly enjoy it.  It was one hot rush just like the title claims. The book is the third book in the Boys of […]

This book has been sitting on my shelf for a while though I originally picked it up because I was interested in the paranormal angle with witches and also the intrigue and romance.  Mostly, this sat as long as it did because I discovered that it is the second in a series.  Now, normally, this doesn’t deter me, but it’s an Urban Fantasy and those I tend to respect the series order a bit more. But, I just never got […]

Not going to lie, I picked up this book mostly because of the author, Roni Loren, but also because who doesn’t like a bad boy rock band lead singer? And now I really need the rest of he band’s story. I have scented gel pens from Barnes & Noble that I can bribe her with….yep, yep that’s what I am going with, pens to bribe for more stories *smile & laughing*. Ok, no, I won’t give up my stash of […]

I started back with this series for the second time as they release on audio.  This second installment of the Theta Alpha Gamma (TAG) series was interesting.  The main character was an absolute jerk in the first book and so I was oh so curious to see him get his own book.  This was a quick novella, but it was packed with quite an emotional punch along with some deeper considerations. The book is the second in a series and […]

There are many kinds of anticipation when it comes to sequels.  As I approached this book, I felt deep excitement that comes from knowing I’m getting into a book that I will love, gleeful excitement because just from the title alone I know I’ll get a feeling of satisfaction from unfinished business, but also anticipatory dread.  Dread because the first book gutted me and I now know what depth of emotion and engagement the author can bring to a story.  […]

I have been wanting to read this author’s books for some time.  I thought my first one would be from her Article 5 series since I was interested in that one from the moment I heard about it.  But instead, I began with this dystopian romance standalone for my first encounter.  I was pulled into this story from the beginning with its scene of desperation, hard and gritty world and setting.  She fights for her freedom, survival, and a chance […]

I was just pondering and decided to turn it into a discussion point because I’m curious what other’s think about this. I love reading reviews to help me select books **(aka put them on my wish list unless they are free b/c I have too many to read already).  And you would point out that ‘yes! That is what reviews are for, silly’. So, as I was exchanging comments with one of our readers, I felt comfortable letting her know […]

A hard-working cowboy with some wild ways wants a fresh start and a woman with a bruised heart find each other on a bad luck ranch in a small busy-body ranch town.  Hopefully they can make their own good luck as they put off enough sizzle to melt the winter ice and snow.  If only they can both get past their gun-shy pasts and see what they’ve got in front of them. I was excited when I saw the author […]

How did it all begin? Hart Griffin’s story simmered in the background during the early part of this series tantalizing, but not quite delivering a full on story. The author listened to her fans and delivered on the beginning of Hart and Jeremy’s story. It was a fast read- exploring, tentative, bittersweet, and hopeful. This one falls chronologically as a prequel and could be read as such, but it is also nice coming after book two when the reader already […]
