Review: Can’t Escape Love (Reluctant Royals #3.5) by Alyssa Cole

Once again, Cole impresses me with her ability to weave timelines together within different stories. This series interlude fills in some of the gaps of the second Reluctant Royals book, including interactions between the main heroine and her parents. I adore Regina, and I don’t even pity her for not getting to become a “royal”Continue reading “Review: Can’t Escape Love (Reluctant Royals #3.5) by Alyssa Cole”

Review: An Unsuitable Heir (Sins of the Cities #3) by K.J. Charles

This book was a fabulous conclusion to the over-arching mystery that took place over the course of this trilogy. However, it was almost a shame that this book had to take place at the end. I think it can be read as a stand-alone, because what makes this book so important isn’t the conclusion of theContinue reading “Review: An Unsuitable Heir (Sins of the Cities #3) by K.J. Charles”

Review: Operation Green Card (Bluewater Bay #21) by G.B. Gordon

The conceit of this book made for an interesting read in light of the immigration issues currently plaguing the United States. As a note, I fall solidly on the side of how the hoops for immigrating to this country are ridiculous, which is how the plot of Operation Green Card becomes even remotely plausible. So, we’reContinue reading “Review: Operation Green Card (Bluewater Bay #21) by G.B. Gordon”

Review: All Wheel Drive (Bluewater Bay #18) by Z.A. Maxfield

Once again, Maxfield shines with her use of character. Though there is a significant (and quite sexy) romantic element to this novel, the journey for me was more about the character progression, whether or not Healey and Diego ended up together. The author made me cheer for them as individuals, not necessarily as a couple.Continue reading “Review: All Wheel Drive (Bluewater Bay #18) by Z.A. Maxfield”

Review: Hell on Wheels (Bluewater Bay #3) by Z.A. Maxfield

Characters can make or break any book, but especially romances, and the characters in this book shined. Though both of them come from worlds far from my experience, Nash and Spencer were guys I could relate to, guys I could cheer for. And even better, neither of them existed in a vacuum. Their decisions regardingContinue reading “Review: Hell on Wheels (Bluewater Bay #3) by Z.A. Maxfield”

Review: THE PURPLE HEART DETECTIVE AGENCY by Rock Neelly

There are a lot of really great things about this “modern noir” book, which is why I kept reading until the very end. I picked it up primarily because of the disabled main characters, which is a diversity not often seen in fiction. While their combat injuries certainly informed their characters, neither men were everContinue reading “Review: THE PURPLE HEART DETECTIVE AGENCY by Rock Neelly”
