Dance With the Devil

If there’s one thing readers can learn from Kit Rocha’s dystopian world, it’s that we’ve got roughly sixty years to get a grip on society before it all goes FUBAR. Because in the post-apocalyptic world that went dark after the Flares (the solar storms that damaged global power grids), darkne ...

The Bodyguard

The Bodyguard is goofy, cartoony and filled with slapstick humor, but that’s part of its charm.  The bad guys are so outrageously bad that they spend their time on-page twisting their mustaches, and the good guys are walking saints.  The writing has charm enough to drag the book up to a C grade, ...

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 ...

Serving Sin

Angelina M. Lopez’ Filthy Rich series continues to take traditional romance tropes and turn them upside down.  Serving Sin, her third book about mega-rich folks and the romantic misadventures they get up to, is the best one of the series, spicy, delicious, and a twist on the ordinary. Roman Sh ...

A Lady's Formula for Love

Some romances are just plain adorable, and A Lady’s Formula for Love is somehow both adorable and action-packed, a delightfully fun romp that brings the reader the best of both worlds. Widowed Violet Hughes, Lady Greycliff, created Athena’s Retreat as a secret social club for women to develop ...

The Spare

I’m not a royal-watcher, and as a rule, I’m not a fan of royal romances.  Of those I’ve read (and that isn’t a large number) the only one that really worked for me was Lilah Pace’s His Royal Secret/His Royal Favorite duology, and a big part of that was because the author had taken care t ...

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 ...
