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: 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: 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”
