Instant Temptation

Lovers reunited, friends turned lovers, second chances of any kind - these are all themes that just do it for me. So when I saw that Instant Temptation featured a heroine reunited with her high school crush, I was ready to settle in and enjoy it. The romance itself was actually pretty fun, but there ...

Slow Heat

I loved Double Play, the first entry in Ms. Shalvis’ Pacific Heat baseball series, so I was eagerly anticipating this next release, Slow Heat. I’m happy to report that it lived up to my expectations, and now I’m eagerly awaiting the next one.  When a woman goes to the press claiming to be ...

Instant Gratification

Instant Gratification is the second book in a trilogy about three daredevil brothers, and though it’s not without its problems, I found it to be a pretty enjoyable read. Dr. Emma Sinclair is used to the fast-paced urban life of New York City, so she feels a bit out of her element when she moves ...

Flashpoint

Flashpoint is the first book in a connected miniseries about firefighters in a Southern California town. It’s a fun, sexy read with enjoyable characters and an interesting mystery subplot. It’s my first book by this author, but I’ll definitely be checking out her backlist. Zach Thomas was o ...

Most of all she loves her job painting murals and has little need for nature beyond that which can be found within city limits. Rachel yearns for some sort ...

Room Service

Jill Shalvis is a versatile author who's written many different types of romances. Personally I've found the quality of her books varies as much as the stories themselves, so I didn't know quite what to expect when I picked up Room Service, the final book in Harlequin Blaze's Do Not Disturb series. ...

Seeing Red

Summer Abrams guides people on wilderness trips, roving the United States to countries afar as she scales mountains, traverses canyons, and kayaks down rapids. She likes the brevity of it all – she is not into commitment or staying long in one place. Since her father died in a fire twelve years ag ...

White Heat

The main character in White Heat: is a loner, raised by a tough Army grandfather; moved around a lot and has no roots; works as a charter pilot; lives in a sparsly furnished apartment; has had lots of casual flings and has issues with committment. Sounds like a generic ...

Back in the Bedroom

Back In The Bedroom is a textbook example of how likable characters can make a book enjoyable. There's nothing new or original about this book - outgoing girl meets uptight guy and sparks fly, and there you have the story - but the characters are so charming! I smiled all the way through it. ...
