Book Review: Rebound by Kate Hawthorne

A bit of a long-running joke in this author’s social media groups is that she can’t write a stand-alone novel. This book, however, definitely stands alone, and whether she wrote it that way on purpose or not is irrelevant, because it still includes everything I love about her writing and storytelling. Ben and Thomas areContinue reading “Book Review: Rebound by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: Prepared (Auctioned #6) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Auctioned series. What I expected with this book: Total fan service of Gray and Darius’ happily ever after, featuring bachelor party shenanigans, a ceremony and reception I’d cry my way through, and familiar, beloved characters showing up from other series. Had that been all this bookContinue reading “Book Review: Prepared (Auctioned #6) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Until Now (Not Ready for Love #3) by Kate Hawthorne

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Not Ready for Love series: Not Allowed (#1) To Love You (#2) This book is really the second part of the love story between Wyatt and Grant that starts in Not Allowed. Unfortunately for us, Hawthorne traumatizes her readers with a significant time gap between the twoContinue reading “Book Review: Until Now (Not Ready for Love #3) by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: Not Allowed (Not Ready for Love #1) by Kate Hawthorne

Hawthorne is one of those authors who can take typical genre tropes and always put her unique spin on them. In this case, she upends the dad’s best friend/age-gap romance premise by featuring two characters who are both too self-aware and incredibly dumb about everything they’re getting themselves into. As a mature adult in hisContinue reading “Book Review: Not Allowed (Not Ready for Love #1) by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: Spires Series by Alexis Hall

This post includes reviews of books in the Spires series: Glitterland (#1) Waiting for the Flood (#2) For Real (#3) Glitterland (Spires #1) There’s a difference between being mentally ill and being an asshole, but it’s still entirely possible to be both. By the time I was a third of the way through the book,Continue reading “Book Review: Spires Series by Alexis Hall”

Book Review: Shades of Winter (For Everything a Season #1) by E.M. Lindsey

Lindsey is officially the only author I know who can write a “low-angst” book that still leaves me absolutely aching for the characters. Liam and Dante shouldn’t work together, which of course means that they absolutely do. I adored the way this story switches up the traditional bodyguard trope formula by having the characters hookContinue reading “Book Review: Shades of Winter (For Everything a Season #1) by E.M. Lindsey”

Book Review: Navarro (Rebel Sky Ranch #3) by Kelly Fox

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Rebel Sky Ranch series: Goodnight (#1) Sparrow (#2) Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this novel from the author. “The worst-kept secret at Rebel Sky Ranch is that Desi Navarro loves Wyatt Goodnight.” Fox has been planting the seeds of this romance from the veryContinue reading “Book Review: Navarro (Rebel Sky Ranch #3) by Kelly Fox”

Book Review: Disciplinary Action by Onley James

I love reading about power exchange relationships, but only those that come from a position of equality. Therefore, I was hesitant to start this book for quite a bit until it was the only book left by this author that I hadn’t read. Since she hasn’t let me down yet, I figured it was timeContinue reading “Book Review: Disciplinary Action by Onley James”

Review: Forbidden: King (The Four #4) by Sloane Kennedy

This collection of excellent spin-offs from Kennedy’s amazing Protectors series comes full circle as we finally get the story of the last brother, King, and his “forbidden” romance with his (non-biological) nephew Gio. Years have passed since Gio’s rescue, but King has kept himself absent for most of them after doing all he can toContinue reading “Review: Forbidden: King (The Four #4) by Sloane Kennedy”
