Book Review: What Remains by Garrett Leigh

At this point, I know what I’m getting into with a Leigh novel, such as developed characters and devastating emotional impact. This book is no exception, and it was the best and worst sort of vacation read. Leigh doesn’t just drop us into an established relationship and guide us through the outcomes of amnesia resultingContinue reading “Book Review: What Remains by Garrett Leigh”

Book Review: Impact by Nikki Markham

Markham is a “new” author, but I am already familiar with their work in a different area of the romance genre under another pen name. I may have been predisposed toward the writing, even if this is the first F/F novel I’ve read, but it more than lived up to my expectations – in fact,Continue reading “Book Review: Impact by Nikki Markham”

Book Review: Protection (Mobsters + Billionaires #2) by Kelly Fox

Read my review of the first book in the Mobsters + Billionaires series, Extradition. It’s no secret that I’ll read pretty much anything Fox writes at this point, but even though I ended up loving the first book, I wasn’t sure this series would live up to the world Fox created in Texas. I amContinue reading “Book Review: Protection (Mobsters + Billionaires #2) by Kelly Fox”

Book Review: To Love You (Not Ready for Love #2) by Kate Hawthorne

Read my review of the first book in the Not Ready for Love series, Not Allowed. This book’s first scene takes place right after Wyatt leaves for college in the previous novel, but luckily, Hawthorne doesn’t make us relive THAT EPILOGUE. Probably because she is too busy cackling with sadistic glee over a different timeContinue reading “Book Review: To Love You (Not Ready for Love #2) by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: The Shepherd (The Game #6) by Cara Dee

Read my previous reviews of the books in The Game series: Top Priority (The Game #1) Their Boy (The Game #2) Breathless (The Game #3) Doll Parts (The Game #4) Out of the Ashes (The Game #5) If you can count on anything about this series, you can depend on Dee’s unpredictability when it comes to the varying characters andContinue reading “Book Review: The Shepherd (The Game #6) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Rediscovered (Do-Over #2) by E.M. Denning

This book continues the tale of the other groom in the failed arranged married from the first story, along with evoking plenty of thematic echoes to create an excellent duet of stories. Denning held back a lot of Harrison’s half of the story in Rearranged in order not to spoil this half of the narrative.Continue reading “Book Review: Rediscovered (Do-Over #2) by E.M. Denning”

Book Review: Roped In (Lone Star #2) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga

Read my review of Lone Star #1: Tending Tyler. If you’ve been following my reviews, you know that this author pairing is an insta-read for me. Especially for their east meets west stories, and doubly so when that trope includes a rodeo cowboy. This particular installment of that concept isn’t my favorite so far, butContinue reading “Book Review: Roped In (Lone Star #2) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga”

Book Review: Ornamental (Irons & Works #8) by E.M. Lindsey

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Irons & Works series: Books 1 through 6 + 2 bonus novellas Scratcher (#7) We return to the Irons & Works tattoo shop for another visit to this excellent universe. You’d think we’d be running out of characters, but Lindsey effortlessly weaves together the “next generation”Continue reading “Book Review: Ornamental (Irons & Works #8) by E.M. Lindsey”

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: Oh So Oscar (Forever Love #3) by Charlie Novak

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Forever Love series: Always Eli (#1) Finding Finn (#2) This book gives the final son of the sprawling combined family that has threaded its way into every corner of Novak’s shared book universe his happily ever after. So far, Oscar’s travel-writer lifestyle (and London home base) means thatContinue reading “Book Review: Oh So Oscar (Forever Love #3) by Charlie Novak”
