Review: Syncopation (Twisted Wishes #1) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. I’m one of those people who gets goosebumps from listening to music that affects me. Reading about the music in this novel, the way it’s described and the way it connects the two heroes, literally made the hair on myContinue reading “Review: Syncopation (Twisted Wishes #1) by Anna Zabo”

Review: Lord & Master (The Billionaires #3) by Emma Holly

I had a great time reconnecting with my favorite trio, but this book threw me for a bit of a loop. Not in a bad way, whatsoever. But it was a distinctly different sort of story than its predecessor. Part of what I loved about Beck & Call was that the three characters grow into aContinue reading “Review: Lord & Master (The Billionaires #3) by Emma Holly”

Review: Beck & Call (The Billionaires #2) by Emma Holly

I think it’s a testament to how engrossing I found this book that I didn’t realize the title was a play on two of the main characters’ names until over halfway through reading the story. I read this book on the recommendation of a blogger that I enjoy who talks about her romance pet peeves.Continue reading “Review: Beck & Call (The Billionaires #2) by Emma Holly”

Review: The Billionaire Bad Boys Club (The Billionaires #1) by Emma Holly

So much for taking a break from the romance and erotica books! This read (and probably the subsequent reads in the series) was inspired by a blog post by author Cara McKinnon, where she discussed how one of her romance pet peeves is three-way relationships where there’s only a real relationship between two of theContinue reading “Review: The Billionaire Bad Boys Club (The Billionaires #1) by Emma Holly”

Review: New Hand (Bluewater Bay #23) by L.A. Witt

#SaveWolfsLanding As amazing as it was to see so many recurring characters appear in one place in this book, I figured out pretty quickly that it’s because the series was coming to a close. I’d be more devastated, but this was definitely a long series and I loved every bit of the ride. (That beingContinue reading “Review: New Hand (Bluewater Bay #23) by L.A. Witt”

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: Three Player Game (Bluewater Bay #20) by Jaime Samms

While creating a three-way relationship in a romance series, it would have been incredibly easy for this to devolve into straight-up erotica. Instead, the author takes three incredibly complex characters and builds a realistic relationship that includes all sorts of interesting stumbling blocks that grab the reader’s attention (even if it does make you wantContinue reading “Review: Three Player Game (Bluewater Bay #20) by Jaime Samms”

Review: Get a Grip (Bluewater Bay #19) by L.A. Witt

Even though the main characters had their traditional “meet cute” in person, this story made effective use of modern dating apps to ensure that they got back together. In fact, this entire series has been modern in that the characters are not to be separated from their smartphones, even the Bluewater Bay inhabitants and notContinue reading “Review: Get a Grip (Bluewater Bay #19) by L.A. Witt”

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”
