Tough Luck

The first in her new A-List Security series, Annabeth Albert’s Tough Luck contains many of the elements I enjoy about her stories – well-crafted principals with depth and charm, steamy, well-written sex scenes ,and wonderful communication - yet despite all those things, the book and I didn’t q ...

The Royals Next Door

The Royals Next Door is sweet and funny, but it also has body and substance.  It starts out as extremely fluffy and lighthearted – very much a beach-read – but then it hits you with some surprising depth and truth.  You might have to adjust your expectations with this one, but it’s worth the ...

Rare Vigilance

M.A. Grant has been on my radar for a while, but I haven’t yet managed to get around to reading any of her books, so when I saw she was starting a new series, it seemed the perfect time to jump in.  Rare Vigilance is book one in her Whitethorn Agency trilogy and the well-paced, wonderfully balanc ...

Girl Gone Viral

Girl Gone Viral is fluffy and substantive, emotional and trenchant, sad and joyful. It’s a lovely feast of human emotions that will fill the reader’s heart with gladness. Ex-model Katrina King is a romantic at heart; a romantic who keeps mainly to herself, content to maintain comforting routi ...

Sweet Talker

Sweet Talker is one of those good-but-kinda-flawed romances.  Imperfect though it may be, it’s still enjoyable enough to earn a light recommendation. Jetsetting entrepreneur Ethan Auprince has a good life.  A loving brother to single brothers Finn (hero of book one in the series) and Drew (he ...

Her Deadly Secrets

Her Deadly Secrets is the second in Laura Griffin’s Wolfe Security series which débuted last year with Desperate Girls.  Unlike the author’s long-running Tracers series, in which the stories revolve around the workings of a high-tech crime lab, and thus have a strong focus on forensics, the Wo ...
