Good Hands

I'm a fan of the vacation fling trope in romances, ones where the characters meet up again later and develop an actual relationship. So when I heard that Kelly Jamieson's most recent release, Good Hands would feature this within her current hockey series (Bears Hockey II) I was quite excited to get ...

The Long Game

Note: As this book is both a sequel and the finale to a long-running series, there will be spoilers for earlier books in this review. Rachel Reid’s The Long Game is the final book in her Game Changers series of romances set in the world of professional hockey – and, most importantly, the long ...

Make It Sweet

Make It Sweet by Kristen Callihan was my favorite romance read of 2021.  (You can view the rest of that list HERE).  The first time I read it, I was swept away by the characters, the story, and the feelings it evoked in me.  Now that I've read it a second time, I can articulate why it ended up at ...

Unexpected Goals

There’s been a mini-epidemic of Canadian and American lady hockey players entering into lovelocks, marriage and childrearing together - prime romance novel material.  Thus I’ve been yearning for more F/F centered hockey romances (there is a bumper crop of het and M/M ones in the genre), and Une ...

Role Model

This fifth book in Rachel Reid’s Game Changers series is a fantastic read and has immediately gone onto both my keeper shelf and my list of series favourites (alongside Heated Rivalry and Common Goal).  At the heart or Role Model lies a gorgeous, sweet and sexy opposites-attract romance, but the ...

Isn't It Bromantic?

So this is the Russian’s book. When I read the first two books in Lyssa Kay Adams’ The Bromance Book Club series, the humor involving this guy quickly wore out its welcome. I felt it was crass and narrow-minded for the only foreigner in the gang to not even have a name and to be the comic rel ...

Check Please!

Have y’all ever read graphic novels? I didn’t for a really long time - I wasn’t sure where to start, I thought they were all comics, I had no idea what to do… It all felt overwhelming. I’m not a huge action fan so I didn’t want to read any that focused on that. However, over the past sev ...

My Christmas Charade

My Christmas Charade, an-enemies-to-lovers trope story, is the final installment in Melanie Ting's Holiday Hat Trick series and it's my favourite of the bunch! Em works as an economic forecaster and she wants her love life to be as smooth and well-planned as her day job. She's recently met Thomas, w ...
