How to Blow it With a Billionaire

Note:  If you haven’t yet read the first Arden St. Ives novel, this review will contain spoilers.  The series should be read in order; you will be confused if you try to start with How to Blow it With a Billionaire. By now, if you’ve read How to Bang a Billionaire, you’ve recognized that ...

Infamous

Though romances starring rock star heroes or heroines aren't usually on my list of favorites, I may have to make an exception after reading this latest romance by Jenny Holiday. On the strength of my enjoyment of previous stories of hers, in particular the 49th Floor series of romantic comedies, I e ...

Foxglove Copse

Foxglove Copse is the fifth book in Riptide Publishing’s Porthkennack universe, and in my opinion it’s the best so far. The books in the Porthkennack series are all standalones, set in and around the Cornish town of the same name, and this one, written by Alex Beecroft, includes all the elements ...

Illegal Contact

Illegal Contact marks Mr. Hassell’s first foray into sports romance, and it’s a truly engaging and compelling read.  In it, an intimidating, world famous athlete, benched for bad behavior off the field, more than meets his match when he hires a personal assistant who doesn’t care who he is or ...

Barrel Proof

Note:  Because this is the final book in a trilogy with an overarching storyline, there will be spoilers for the other books in this review. Barrel Proof, the third and final instalment in Layla Reyne's Agents Irish and Whiskey trilogy of romantic suspense novels, picks up pretty much where Cas ...
