Law Man

For a few years in the early 2010s, Kristen Ashley was the bingiest of binge authors. I have had mixed impressions of her books, mostly driven by the fact that her heroes are overbearing. However, 2012’s Law Man rises above the rest, because if there’s one type of overbearing hero I can get behi ...

Digging Deep

Digging Deep is the first book I’ve read by New Zealander Jay Hogan, and I have to say I was pretty impressed.  In it, the author takes a long, hard look at how living with a chronic illness impacts on every single aspect of life for the person who has it and those around them, while at the same ...

Hot Cop

It is a thoroughly enjoyable novel that touches the line between really explicit contemporary and erotic romance. Officer Chase Kelly is the titular hot cop, ...
