The Firefighter's Thanksgiving Wish

In 2019, my romance reviews frequently ranked as either ‘hot’ or ‘burning’ on AAR’s sensuality scale. I’ve decided to shake things up in 2020 by reading more novels on the ‘closed-lip kisses’ end of the sexy spectrum. Book seven in Anna J. Stewart’s small-town romance series Butter ...

Her Favorite Rival

What could be better than an Australian coworkers-to-lovers romance with a promotion rivalry, and family disappointed that their kid didn’t grow up to be a doctor? No, I’m not talking about The Hating Game - which I loved. Sarah Mayberry did a similar story three years earlier, and Her Favorite ...

How to Hack a Heartbreak

How to Hack a Heartbreak is a delightful book – a breezy read that grabs the reader from the first page. What amazes me is although I know that Rockaway could not possibly have written Heartbreak yesterday, it reads that way; it’s so of-the-moment. I can see readers juggling Ronan Farrow’s Ca ...

I Knew You Were Trouble

Here’s the deal: I love - as in really, really love - Lauren Layne’s Stiletto and Oxford series, and I am ecstatic whenever there is a new book out. I know it means that I’ll be able to catch up with some of my favorite fictional characters, who now feel like old friends, and that I will get t ...

Accidentally on Purpose

Ms. Shalvis recently posted on her Facebook page that Accidentally on Purpose is her 101st published work. That's quite a feat and worthy of celebration!

Charlie All Night

Charlie All Night was the first Crusie book I ever read, and while What the Lady Wants later replaced it as my favorite of her series titles, this one is still right up there. Allie McGuffey's life revolved around her job as the producer of the prime time radio show at an Ohio station. Then the s ...
