Show Time

The premise of Tawna Fenske’s Show Time is, in a word, odd. Focusing on the filming of a reality show in the grounds of a cult compound - The Benevolent Order of the New Kingdom in rural Juniper Ridge, Oregon - the (book) series will feature a phalanx of handsome brothers who fulfill the needs of ...

The Last

Tawna Fenske’s The Last opens with a great scene. Sarah Keating is celebrating her thirtieth birthday at home with a few of her closest friends, all of them in comfy pajamas. It’s the kind of party I could imagine clearly and wouldn’t have minded stepping into at all. Sarah is single while ...

The hero and heroine are fully developed with an interesting shared backstory. I found this an enjoyable read, and if not for a few annoying char ...

Frisky Business

There is a fine line between funny and not funny, and that line is different for everyone - that’s what makes humorous romances so risky. Luckily for me, Frisky Business had that near perfect combination of physical comedy, sexual tension, and ridiculous euphemisms that I was hoping for. ...

B
Making Waves

After reading the first few pages of this book, I found myself rolling my eyes. The author seemed to be going for over-the-top humor with the heroine and it didn’t work for me. But a few pages later when I met the hero, the book completely changed for me. Sure, a lot of this modern-day pirate stor ...
