The Hitman

A romantic comedy with a hitman hero definitely doesn't follow the norm of mafia romances, which tend to be of the 'dark romance' variety. Yet author Katrina Jackson has done a delightful job of combining a lot of humor, sexy scenes, and yes, action too, in The Hitman, the second book in The Family ...

Never Been Good

I love a ‘Bad Boy Gone Good’ romance which means Christi Barth’s series of the same name was bound to get my attention.  Having enjoyed Bad for Her, which featured one of three brothers  in a witness protection program, I made sure to keep an eye out to find out which would be the next of th ...

The Bastard's Bargain

I have been waiting for this book for ages, since before I even knew that Keira and Dmitri would feature in their own story. I am so happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed and there is still as much chemistry between the ‘gentleman murderer’ and the mob daughter as there was during their run- ...

Undercover Attraction

I'm pretty fussy when it comes to contemporary romance; for some reason, a lot of what's out there just doesn't appeal to me. So, I was super thrilled when I stumbled upon Katee Robert's series featuring the dark and sexy O'Malley family and their struggle to rule the Boston underworld. The first th ...

Bad for Her

The first story in Christi Barth’s Bad Guys Gone Good series sets the stage for a set of romances about three brothers who, through a set of unconventional circumstances, find themselves in small town USA, specifically Bandon, Oregon. While the hero seems more of a bad guy in name only, Bad For He ...

Hard Stick

Y’all, I wish I could tell you what I thought of this book, but I’m still not really sure. What I do know is this. It’s not – despite a cover that screams otherwise – a hockey romance, which is a serious bummer. As far as I could work it out, it’s some sort of romantic suspense caper tha ...

Forbidden Promises

I recently fell into an unusually long reading slump where I could not make myself read anything. I was starting to feel not like myself after months passed without sitting down to truly read a book. I managed to limp through one I enjoyed, but it took weeks. Finally, just when I was starting to thi ...

Indecent Proposal

Katee Robert is back with another book of forbidden romance between crime families, and fans of the first two books will be happy to know that this is another strong instalment. An Indecent Proposal may be my least favorite of the three books in the series, but it’s still a great read that lived ...

Dark Mafia Prince

Have you reached the middle of a book and realized you can’t put it down, but aren’t sure you like it?  If you have, you know how I felt reading Dark Mafia Prince.  I haven’t read many Mafia based romances, so I don’t have much to compare it to, but I was thoroughly entertained, and curiou ...
