The Man on Top of the World

The Man on Top of the World is marketed by its publishers as General Fiction/Romance. I should add that it includes m/m, m/f, m/m/f, f/f and m/m/f/f sexual combinations. Considering the amount of sex in this novel, I’m just glad neither of the main characters had a dog. The book also includes what ...

Idol

When I heard Kristen Callihan was writing a new series, I might have mentally (actually) high-fived myself. When I heard the stories are set in the music world, I was initially wary because I’ve recently been spoiled by excellent books about musicians by Mercy Brown and Erika Kelly, and I worried ...

Rise

A few months ago I did a Pandora’s Box here with Dabney about Karina Bliss’ Rise. For me, it’s a clear DIK, while for Dabney it’s a B. I liked it so much – and have actually reread it since writing the Pandora’s Box – that I thought it deserved a full review and spot in the AAR reviews ...

I occasionally need a break from standard romance fare. I love small town romances and romantic suspense with cops chasing baddies. I love wagering dukes and possessive wolf shifters. But conventional romance hasn’t been doing it for me lately. So I picked up a book about a porn star who signs a c ...

What the Librarian Did

Although there are few romances I've come across with a celebrity as a leading man, I find the premise an attractive one. Do I want to read about an egomaniac who is intent on being famous? Not really. But give me a male celebrity retiring from the game and I’m willing to give it a try. Devin F ...

It's Not You It's Me

It’s Not You It’s Me is a road romance and a reunion story between people who used to be best friends. If any of those scenarios press your buttons, you might want to pick this one up. Charlotte “Charlie” Notting has had a rough couple of years. One day, out of the blue she gets a vac ...
