Lucy Gets Her Life Back

Everything about Lucky Gets Her Life Back is so gosh-darned Family Friendly, I really wish I’d had a clue about what to expect before I started the book. It’s a tribute to Stef Ann Holm’s skill as a writer that I wound up largely enjoying a book I wouldn’t have touched if I’d known what a ...

Squeeze Play

This baseball-themed romance, set in Florida just after the World Series, is a sweet story of a couple who have always come together as rebound sex partners, but now they each realize that they want more from their relationship. The bulk of the story comes from each of them trying to decide how to c ...

Playing for Keeps

I have read Karen Templeton before and enjoyed her, so I was glad to have the opportunity to review her newest, Playing for Keeps. At the very least, I knew the book would be readable and chock full of down-to-earth characters. Templeton has a knack for making the mundane details of the everyday com ...

So I requested to review this book without knowing much about it. I soon realized two things: the hero is a baseball player and the sp ...

Picture Perfect

Picture Perfect has a serious issue at the center of its plot: the sickle cell anemia disease that afflicts far too many African Americans. The central question at the center of this book is, should a young woman in love push aside a chance at happiness because of the disease? Photographer Ca ...

Honey

Honey is a sweet slice of late Victorian Americana. It deftly mixes comedy and angst and features a spunky (but ladylike) heroine and a strong (but tortured) hero along with a fine group of supporting characters. Best of all, for a sports lover like me, most of the book takes place during the baseba ...
