Reflected in You

Reflected in You is a follow up to the author’s breakout hit Bared to You, which rose to the top of many bestseller lists in 2012. This review may contain slight spoilers for the previous novel, and indeed the stories are very intertwined; you won't want to read the second book without reading the ...

Seven Years to Sin

Seven Years to Sin commences (and concludes) with coitus. At its start, Lady Jessica Sheffield, on the eve of her wedding, is walking her dog on her fiancé’s estate. The pug runs away and, as she chases it down, she stumbles across a gazebo in which Alistair Caulfield, a friend of her fiancé’s ...

A Passion for Him

A Passion For Him is the sequel to Passion for the Game. I haven’t read the first book in this series, but after reading this installment, I'll be sure to pick it up. Amelia Benbridge is courting a longtime friend, the Earl of Ware, and one of London’s most eligible bachelors. She knows that ...

The Stranger I Married

I've heard a lot of buzz about Sylvia Day and so was eager to read The Stranger I Married. While she does have a way with a love scene, I found the plot to be lacking. Gerard Faulkner, the 22 year old Marquess of Grayson, is planning revenge on his dastardly mother. While Gray was off on his Gra ...

Ask for It

No matter how deliciously erotic the love scenes might be, the simple truth is that they’re not-so-erotic when the characters who feature in them are brats. Make that spoiled, immature brats. The author’s style is so appealing, quite frankly, that writing this review isn’t a pleasure. But ...
