In Olivia Cunning’s Staged, Steve Aimes, drummer for top metal band Exodus End, is a romantic at heart, but after his ex-wife’s betrayal, he’s been abstaining from emotion (although definitely not from sex). When he sees Roux Williams in the limo that picks up the band, he assumes that she’s ...

The One and Only

The One and Only was a New York Times #1 bestseller and deservedly so. It’s the story of thirty-three-year-old sports reporter Shea Rigsby and her gradual realization that her lifelong hero-worship of football coach Clive Carter might go deeper than friendship.

Release

Do you like a boss/employee taboo scenario that takes consent and power equality seriously? A hero who wants the heroine’s submission to come from a position of choice and strength, and to also make space for her own pleasure? Are you open to a ‘meet cute’ in a glory hole? Then Suzanne Clay’ ...

The Portrait of a Duchess

It’s pretty much impossible for me to not love Scarlett Peckham. Her original plots and strong characters are my catnip, my raison d'être as a romance reader. Thus, The Portrait of a Duchess pleased me to no end. There are a few hinky spots here, but it’s still a great read. Cornelia Ludgate ...

Bass-Ackwards

Eris Adderly’s Bass-Ackwards is the sweetest book you’ll ever read that starts with the hero committing egregious workplace sexual harassment.

How to Fake it in Hollywood

How to Fake It in Hollywood is an age-gap, fake-relationship contemporary romance début that delivers a Real Deal Romance packed into a slightly uneven story.   Grey Books (real name Emily) is a child actor-turned-teen TV star (think One Tree Hill) of moderate fame. At twenty-seven, after almo ...

Knocked Up in Alaska

Knocked Up in Alaska by Samanthe Beck is the third and final book in her Captivity Alaska series. I enjoyed the first two but I think this one is my favourite.  Lilah Iquat is pregnant. Young and pregnant with a dead man's baby. When pilot Shay Shanahan died in a plane crash, Lilah had just tol ...

Everything for You

Everything for You – book five in Chloe Liese’s Bergman Brothers series – is the first entry in that series to feature a same sex couple and is also the author’s first m/m romance. As I haven’t read anything by Ms. Liese before, I decided to rectify that by picking it up for review.  It ...
