Forget Tomorrow

YA Dystopia is a crammed genre, but also one I truly love when it’s done well - and Forget Tomorrow blasts right past ‘well’ on its way to ‘brilliantly’. The best authors build originality within a genre framework (romance readers know this better than anyone!). Forget Tomorrow has the dys ...

So Wild a Dream

Reading Beautiful Wreck in 2014, I was blown away by Larissa Brown’s dreamlike writing style and the romance within. When I read the first part of the follow-up in 2016, I enjoyed the story but wasn’t left with that lovely breathless feeling I craved. Luckily, while I wasn’t floating weightles ...

A Knight in Shining Armor (#40 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 8, 1997 Back when A Knight in Shining Armor first came out in hardcover, I bought it, read it, loved it, and immediately started reading it again. I was at a friend's house sitting by her pool one afternoon and was pronounced "anti-social" becaus ...

So Wild a Dream

Two years ago, I declared Larissa Brown’s Beautiful Wreck was one of the Best Books of 2014. Last year, we raved about her novella, Tress. And I was so excited to read So Wild A Dream, set in the same world as Beautiful Wreck, that when I got the chance to review it, I was literally breathless. Ma ...

Beautiful Wreck

First things first - don’t judge this book by its cover. From the official cover, I was expecting something a bit childish - definitely with Vikings, but still childish. This is the author’s first work, after all, and it’s unusual to read a first romance that fully moves the reader. Well, cons ...

Overseas

I've been using the 12 in 2012 Reading Challenge on the Potpourri Board to encourage me to clear off my TBR pile and to read new to me sub-genres. Lovers lost in time is not exactly new to me, but it is a sub-genre I don't read very often. I'm glad I picked it for this round as I would have hated to ...

The Best Gift

I have a select few books that I like to pull out frequently to reread during the Christmas season. The Best Gift will definitely join their ranks. Though one need not read If Only in My Dreams to follow the plot of this book, it would probably help enrich the experience as both books (written b ...

It's a Wonderfully Sexy Life

Historical author Hope Tarr makes her contemporary debut with It's a Wonderfully Sexy Life, the third of Harlequin's Extreme Blazes. This holiday-themed tale makes a few missteps, but overall it's an enjoyable read. Baltimore cop Mandy Delinski doesn't think she has much to celebrate t ...

What, No Roses?

I am always eager to get my hands on a good time travel book. Some of my all- time faves feature time travel. I will generally give anything in this genre a shot. Not being a big fan of the Roaring Twenties, I’m glad I pick this one despite the time period. Dora Duncan is a TV report ...
