Playing it Safe

I haven’t read anything by Amy Andrews before, but the blurb for Playing it Safe - her first m/m romance and the seventh book in her Sydney Smoke series set in the world of Australian Rugby Union – caught my eye.  It’s an enjoyable, well-written and steamy read, and although it’s nothing I ...

You Are Cordially Invited

Book five in the Auckland Med series (I’m not sure it’s the last one?), You Are Cordially Invited is ‘The One With the Wedding’ – although it’s much more than a fluffy wedding short -  in which everyone’s favourite, fabulous, feisty Charge Nurse, Cam Wano, ties the knot with the love ...

Playing with Trouble

I am a sucker for an Amy Andrews book. After reading as much of her back catalogue as I can get my hands on, Ms. Andrews is an author that I just know is going to provide me a happy escape and a satisfying ending. Playing With Trouble is no exception. Additionally, it’s a creative bridge between t ...

Love Hard

Love Hard is the third book in the Hard Play series, a fact you can’t miss because the book opens by narrating the wedding of previous characters - for EIGHT CHAPTERS. Eventually, you’ll get to the actual plot of this book, and it’s quite nice, but it takes way too long to get there. As a t ...

Love Hard

Sexy ‘enemies-to-lovers’ romance Love Hard is book three in Nalini Singh’s Hard Play series. This tender love story is thoroughly satisfying from its amusing chapter titles down to the hero’s amply-filled boxer briefs. When Jacob ‘Jake’ Esera’s high school sweetheart died, he lost h ...

Playing Dirty

Playing Dirty is the latest installment in Amy Andrews’ incredibly enjoyable Sydney Smoke series, about the rugby players of the team by the same name. This novel centers on the team’s newest hot shot player, Kyle, and the coach’s daughter, Val. There’s insta-lust all over this one, along wi ...

The Varlet and the Voyeur

I love a great sports romance and the Rugby series has been a reliably sexy, romantic and wholly satisfying treat for this fan. After the disappointment that was the third book, The Cad and the Co-ed, I’m pleased to say that normal service has been resumed and L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid have score ...

Melt for You

One of the pleasures of reviewing books for All About Romance is the opportunity to interact with readers. Recently, one of them recommended Melt for You by J.T. Geissinger.  I’m familiar with the author - I’ve read two of her earlier books, including the Slow Burn novel that precedes it.  I l ...
