While I wasn’t really into the first book based on Colt King, I really wanted Duke King’s story. You get a hint that he went to prison, but not really sure why other than it was a little shady what he was accused of doing. Then there is the whole secret kid while I have been gone that he just finds out about. So I knew a little going in, but not much in the way of details. Duke King […]

I read this as part of the Red Hot Lovers Box Set.  This was another new to me author and I found her writing enchanting.  This was a New Adult story, but it had the flavor of an older style romantic suspense.  There is a hint of magic or is there?  The reader is never sure and neither is the heroine as her holiday to Crete involves more than exploring its fabulous culture, beaches, and food. Olivia has joined her […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring Under the Hood by Juanita Kees “Tiffany-Jane Stevens?” His voice reverberated through her, deep and rumbling. Not unlike thunder—which matched the expression on his face. She shivered. “Yes?” “Scott Devin. Tie your damn shoes, take off that ridiculous skirt, and meet me in my office.” With that, he spun around and stalked off. She shivered. ‘Yes?’ – The Great Pick Up Line – Under the Hood by Juanita Kees #TGPUL #Giveaway Click To Tweet Under […]

I saw the blurb on this one and was pulled in by wanting to see what happens in this curious story about a teen who is still figuring stuff out.  I’ve never read a story about a gender fluid person, but I have known one.  And this person was a teen at the time and they struggled, painfully.   While this story makes it clear that such a life is hard and confusing, it is also told with a lighter touch […]

Welcome to The Book Report where we run down everything that happened in the month and update you on challenges, giveaways, reviews and more! Shari’s Update January brought winter on with a bang. Within two weeks we have used 4 of the 5 snow days they built into the schedule. December was a warm month so this is a shock to the system. My thoughts are with all the East Coasters who got more snow that should ever fall. We […]

After my first encounter with the Taggart family of brothers in Desperado, I was eager to return to Utah ranching country for Jace’s story.  The contemporary western small town setting, the engaging characters, and the gently character driven plot made it easy to settle in and appreciate.  The Taggarts brothers are all so different, but I love them as a whole and love seeing each find romance. This is book two in the Taggart Brothers series.  I think a person […]

Not sure what the best way is to read this one, but I chose to read it back to back with its companion novel, Bully.  Bully is book one and should definitely be the first of the two read as this one follows the same time line, but fills in the other line along with adding more to the layer. At this point, I am emotionally exhausted reading the two together which is why I wonder if a little distance […]

I was hooked in by the blurb and the promise of a new series by an author I enjoy reading.  And the title, how could I resist a duke’s disaster? Actually, it was a near thing because this duke and his ‘disaster’ had some iffy moments at the beginning (I shouldn’t have doubted.  Any book that wins the TBR Pile vote has been excellent.  Thanks, guys!), but I stuck with it and was so glad I did.  This is a […]

When this lovely came to my attention, I didn’t even hesitate to snatch it up.  A blend of familiar and new-to-me writers all presenting a variety of historical romances that range from sweet to some heat.  As it’s an anthology, I’ll be taking the stories one at a time in mini-reviews as I go.  And because it is packed with eight stories, I’ll be breaking up my review of this anthology into maybe two or three reviews.  I started with […]

Shari read the first book in this series and it put the author and series on my radar.  I love a good cyborg romance with a strong amount of action and intrigue.  I took the chance that I could jump in with book two and it ended up working out with brief references to the hero from book one. The story starts out with Kai Andros, a Terran cyborg, deeply embedded in a shadow ops mission on the space station […]

I have been waiting for this story since I encountered Carys and Rune earlier in the series.  While I love each installment that comes out, there are some that I anticipate more than others.  This is definitely one of them.  Carys is a rare Vampire Breed female who can day walk and she is the daughter of one of formidable, Sterling Chase, one of her people’s leaders.  And Carys is in love with rough underground fighter, Rune, who is a […]

And it’s the start of a new year and I have big plans.  One of them is to continue putting a dent in my TBR pile particularly my older review books.  I’m going to make them the priority focus of my TBR Pile elimination and you, our super delightful readers, will be a great help. Each month, I will post up a pair (or more) of books.  I would like you to vote on a choice.  Yes!  You will have […]

I thought book one sounded cute and had a bit of an Emma-vibe to it so I was eager to try a new to me author and narrator.  This prequel was noticed after the fact and so I decided to start at the very beginning.  While the series is adult contemporary romance, this prequel is how it all began back in high school.  It was a bittersweet piece that did its job of introduction and set up for what is […]

This was a re-read for me.  I read the original book a few years back and decided to experience it in audio this time around. Any story with dragons makes me perk up and take notice so I was eager to dive in.  This is an interesting blend of forced marriage, suspense, magic, and young adult elements.  I enjoy the dragon world that the author created. The story opens with young Kai thinking she is on the point of being […]

There’s nothing left for her in Atlanta—except a bitter and controlling almost-ex husband. Starting over as an online personal shopper is challenging, but not as much as having to plan wedding festivities with uptight groomsman Josiah Walker… As […]
