Heated Rivalry

Heated Rivalry is the second book in Rachel Reid’s Game Changers series set in the world of professional hockey. I haven’t read book one (Game Changer), but although characters from that book are mentioned in this one, it works perfectly well as a standalone.  Heated Rivalry is a kind-of-but-no ...

Brutal Game

Willing Victim left Flynn and Laurel at happy-for-now, rather than happy ever after, so I knew there was a lot of potential in a sequel. That said, I had no idea where that sequel might take them. With the frank sexuality of Willing Victim, and McKenna’s bold forays into kink, I assumed that the f ...

Willing Victim: Remastered

Kink alert! Willing Victim is definitely not a book for everyone, but if you’re interested in a gritty, kinky book with a heart, it’s a great read. I was excited to hear that Cara McKenna had regained the publishing rights to some of her older books and would be releasing re-vamped eBooks of eac ...

Bittersweet

Sarina Bowen's first story in her True North series (known colloquially among bloggers as her 'Grumpy Farmers' series) is a lovely and lush romance set in the countryside of Vermont. Griff is a farmer. When his father passed away unexpectedly three years earlier while Griff was at college, his dream ...

Rock N Soul

Rock N Soul by Lauren Sattersby is an unexpected gem; funny, emotional and sexy. I am surprised it seems to have slipped under the reviewing radar. Tyler Lindsey is a bellboy at a nice Boston hotel. He has an okay girlfriend, an okay apartment, an okay life. Then one day he enters a ...

Fully Ignited

I don’t have much experience with firefighters; most of my family and friends seem to fall into the industries of education, finance, and healthcare. The nice thing about reading, though, is that it allows you to move beyond your own experiences and imagine what could be. This week I settled down ...

The Wedding Pact

I’ve never been big on Mafia/gang books. I don’t mind the Mob making an appearance in my romantic suspense from time to time, but in general I stay far away from books involving such groups. I think it might actually go back to my love of West Side Story; I grew up hearing the soundtrack and dre ...

Heat Exchange

With Heat Exchange, Shannon Stacey kicks off a new series based around Boston firefighters. If they're all going to be as good as this installment, I'm definitely coming back for more! I first encountered Stacey with her Kowalski series. I enjoyed her writing because while her stories contain som ...

The Marriage Contract

So…who do I have to hold hostage to get the second book in this series early? I cannot wait until April of next year for it. Katee Robert has introduced a new family to the romance world and, boy, are they trouble. And I want more of them. In The Marriage Contract, Teague O’Malley and Callist ...

Against the Tide

Anyone who has ever spent the night pacing the floors with a teething baby knows just how desperate a person can get when trying to soothe a child. Many parents become frantic for a solution. In the mid-1800's such a solution came in the form of Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup. It quieted restless, pa ...
