New to me author and series that I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz about so naturally I had to alleviate my curiosity and give it a go. I was up for a flirty, slightly different historical romance. This was the third book in a trilogy, but I got pretty lucky and didn’t have any trouble feeling comfortable following the story. I saw a few […]

Sophie was a character I adored when she was introduced in the first book of the series as a secondary character. She is rather a sunny little magpie with a love of music and a desire to have those around her happy. Her friends treasure her and want her to be happy too. Now that Sophie is in a jam caused by the unsuitable runaway […]

Christmas is over, but you never really want to let go. So I picked up a book I thought would be a good way to say good bye to the season, but it fell flat even with a good premise. JJ is serving time after killing her abusive stepdad after finding her mother dead by his hand. A lousy defense and 10 years of parole hearings […]

One of the reasons that I read Historical Fiction or Historical Romance is to be transported to a new place and time, to learn about a long ago culture, to see universal themes that I can relate to even now, but of course I love a rousing good romance, intrigue and adventure too. This story was all that and I only reluctantly clicked to the […]

I was curious to see what one of my favorite Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance authors would do with a contemporary New Adult. She brought together elements that I find very attractive: opposites, class and ethnic group issues, wounded characters with pasts, sports and strong secondary characters. This was a hit with me and a definite win. Evelyn Preston’s life is drastically different from what it was […]

What if instead of getting the chance to declare in ringing tones that Fitzwilliam Darcy was the last man in the world she would consent to marry, Elizabeth Bennet was so ill from fever that her distracted response was taken as a yes and she was now engaged to a man she despised? Yep, that is the basis of this new engaging story. Talk about […]

Posted by Sophia Rose in 4 Stars, Young Adult on 17 January, 2015 / 8 Comments

For some reason I am drawn to Young Adult Sci-Fi and this one had the added twist of being post-apocalyptic which is another nuance I like in a story. I was hooked from the beginning and even though I found the heroine on the bratty, emotionally messy side most of the time, I was engaged to the end. There was so much going on with […]

The Delight Eve Langlais knocked me over with a wonderfully funny romance between a demon, a witch and the matchmaker, Lucifer. These two (or three) can’t be serious for any amount of time, but when they finally get down and dirty, they blow me away to the damn mortal world. *sobs* Let me introduce you to a demon named Remy. He is a man whore, […]
