Truth or Beard

My apologies to everyone who recommended this series to me and was rewarded with ‘that doesn’t sound like my cup of tea.' You were right and I was wrong. Deliciously, wonderfully wrong! Truth or Beard is the first book in Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers series about six handsome, bearded brot ...

My Favorite Half-Night Stand

For anyone tangled up in the world of modern dating, with its proliferation of apps, matches, and potential creeps, My Favorite Half-Night Stand should be an amusing and enjoyable book. Christina Lauren manages to create a story that is a little bit friends-to-lovers, a little bit mistaken identity, ...

I Hate You, I Love You

This one is great for fans of The Hating Game, or Dating You, Hating You. An enemies-to-lovers romance set in a college environment, I ate up I Hate You, I Love You with a big spoon and was delighted from beginning to end. Naomi Price is a beloved poetry professor with few complaints about her li ...

Rogue Acts

People leading politically progressive lives under the administration of President Crosby (read: a not at all veiled Donald Trump) are the “rogues” of this lackluster anthology. Unfortunately, the tails wag the dogs of these stories, as the political agendas, themselves oversimplified, overwhelm ...

First Time at Firelight Falls

If you’re a fan of slow-burn romances, I suggest you jump into First Time at Firelight Falls. I can’t think of the last time an author pulled this trope off so well - or the last time I was able to read so much meaning into just a few lines of dialogue. This book took me on an unexpected, but th ...

A Duke in the Night

I enjoyed this book very much right from the beginning, but halfway through I fell head over heels in love with it. I thought the prequel to this book, The Lady in Red, was an 'A' read, but this is even better. He had danced with her on a dare. So begins the relationship between August Faulkne ...

A Duke in the Night

Some authors just get better and better each time out, and Kelly Bowen is one of them.  Her last series, Season for Scandal, was tremendous, but right out of the gate, A Duke in the Night trumps them all.  It’s smart, sexy and romantic, and I enjoyed every bit of it.  In the lovely novella The ...
