Graphic novels have had trouble making the transition to e-reader format. In order to get the text large enough to read, you usually have to zoom in too far to experience the art. Plus, you lose your place on the page and can’t follow the flow of panels. […]
As fall begins, I start thinking about end-of-year “Best of” lists. There are so many books released each year that I’m always worried that I’m missing out books I should have tried. AAR’s Power Search is my longtime favorite for checking out what’s been going on in a given year, and I often turn to it for guidance on what I should try to cram in before December. […]

Through more than twenty years of All About Romance’s reviews, AAR’s readers have visited, read our posts, and commented on the reviews, blogs, and message boards. And over the years, as AAR staff, we have gotten to know some of you. However, we would love to get to know all of you better. […]
Difficult to believe as it is, we’re heading into tbe back-end of the year now, as Autumn/Fall will shortly be upon us and we’ll be looking ahead to the books we want to curl up with on those long winter evenings! Before that, though, we’ve got the final days and weeks of summer to look forward to, and here are AAR staffers’ picks for the new releases we’re planning on spending that time with. […]
I love to travel. I’m fortunate to have summers off and that my husband travels nearly every week for work (well, that’s unfortunate) accruing thousands of flight and hotel points for our family to use to get away. As a voracious romance reader, I always have too many books in my TBR at any time, and I often read what I hope to review. But summer/travel reading is different! […]
Talk about an overwhelming prompt! This month we are challenged to read a contemporary romance for the TBR Challenge, and that leaves readers with an embarrassment of riches as contemporaries have been in high supply for the past few years. I ended up choosing a sports romance which I had seen recommended on Twitter, and Caz went with an m/m contemporary that turned out to be a winner as well. […]
There’s a book you love set in 1960, but is it a modern historical? Modern historicals differ from classic contemporaries in that contemporaries were written when the setting was “now,” but to a modern historical author, the setting was “then.” If that 1960 book was written in the sixties, it’s a classic contemp. That same 1960 story written and published a decade later? That’s a modern historical! […]
Love can find you at any age! In this list, AAR Loves romance novels starring characters who are older than the norm for the genre. Here are some Seasoned Romances we hope you like as much as we did! […]
Authors and readers alike seem to love series. When an author builds a compelling world, one cannot help wanting to revisit again and again. So, with this month being series catch-up month on the TBR Challenge, we both went back into beloved series. Caz went with a gritty mystery that is one of a series following an m/m relationship while Lynn read one of the Rannoch/Fraser novels, a historical romantic suspense series that follows the leads’ marriage of convenience as it develops into love.
Paternity Case by Gregory Ashe
Paternity Case is the third in Gregory Ashe’s series of novels featuring two detectives based in the small Missouri town of Wahredua, Emery Hazard and John-Henry Somerset. These are gritty, complex stories that are practically impossible to put down once started; the mysteries are twisty and really well-conceived but […]
