Bass-Ackwards

Eris Adderly’s Bass-Ackwards is the sweetest book you’ll ever read that starts with the hero committing egregious workplace sexual harassment. A standout working-class erotic romance that starts out pushing consent boundaries and gradually works its way backwards to heartwarming, Bass-Ackwards i ...

On the Hustle

On the Hustle is a sexy, vibrant romance set in Texas about two driven people with opposing personalities who manage to find love. It’s not my favorite Herrera book, but it’s still a very entertaining romance. Architect Alba Duarte works a number of jobs, including acting as a personal assist ...

Bad Bishop

Bad Bishop is the second book in Layla Reyne’s Perfect Play trilogy, and if you haven’t read book one, Dead Draw, it won’t make a great deal of sense; this is a ‘same couple’ series with one overarching plotline, so the books need to be read in order. Bad Bishop picks up just a few hour ...

Ruby Fever

The Baylors are back in the latest Hidden Legacy volume from the Ilona Andrews writing duo. Ruby Fever has all the trademark snark, adrenaline-fueled action and humor these novels are known and loved for. This is book six of the series, and my review necessarily contains spoilers for those that c ...

West Side Love Story

West Side Love Story transplants that old Capulet/Montague tale to Texas and gives us a fun, spirited and fresh take on that tale of forbidden love.  In the hands of Priscilla Oliveras, the old becomes new, and fun and sexual combustibility prevail. San Antonio native and E.R. nurse Mariana Capu ...

His Fresh Start Cowboy

The first books by A.M Arthur I read were from her Clean Slate Ranch series set on a dude ranch in California and telling the stories of the guys who stayed and/or worked there, the ‘magic’ of the place putting people in the right place at the right time to find new lives and loves. Those books ...

Last Seen Alone

Last Seen Alone is listed as one of Laura Griffin’s rare stand-alone romantic suspense novels. The story of a missing woman, her devoted attorney and the cop determined to see justice done, it’s a lovely book that will be sure to please fans of the genre. Brandon Reynolds has been a homicide ...

Blind Tiger

Blind Tiger is a classic Sandra Brown romantic suspense story and if you are a fan of this author or that genre at all, you will definitely want to pick it up. The Great War is over but almost two years after armistice, Thatcher Hutton is still finding his way home. Lack of money and no job means ...

Crazy About a Cowboy

I have a huge soft spot for Dylann Crush’s funny contemporary westerns.  Crazy about the Cowboy isn’t my favorite Crush or the best book in the Tying the Knot in Texas series, but it’s still good and charming. The reigning “Miss Lovin’ Texas” Delilah Stone has been required to criss- ...

You Lucky Dog

Julia London’s You Lucky Dog is funny, sweet and charming, but gets a couple of points dinked off for the author’s preference for outside conflict versus internal conflict in the romance. It’s a tough day in Austin, Texas. The arrest of a dog walker in an undercover drug sting has resulted ...
