Chick Magnet

Don’t let the blurb for Emma Barry’s Chick Magnet fool you; this is a surprisingly serious romance with a lot of dark issues floating about in its prose to match its sense of personality. But while it lacks the sense of easy-breezy fun the synopsis promises it’s beautifully poetic and romantic ...

Her Fake Date Until Midnight

I’m always in the mood for a Cinderella story, and an overworked, underappreciated veterinarian is definitely someone who deserves a happy ending. Eve Pendle’s Her Fake Date Until Midnight , the first in her Secrets of Wildbrook series covers a few popular tropes in a sexy and enjoyable romance ...

I Hate You More

I adore Lucy Gilmore – y’all know this much about me at this point.  I Hate You More is another adorable dog-centered romance from her, and while it’s not my absolute favorite among her many books, it’s still worth a recommendation and a read. Ruby Taylor is a former beauty pageant queen ...

No More Mr. Nice Guy

Mack Kennedy is a nice guy; a gentle giant of a veterinarian who has been a critical emotional support for his widowed sister Sal. Josie Butler, who rooms with the two, never considered him for the list of post-breakup naughty sex she’d like to have. But when Mack sees her list, it brings out a ne ...

Unguarded

Jay Hogan takes the number of books in the Vino and Veritas series into double figures with Unguarded – the story of a closeted, repressed bisexual veterinary surgeon and an ex-pat Kiwi running from an abusive relationship – and it’s the best book of the series (that I’ve read) so far.  If ...

The Same End

No one writes AWKWARD, PAINFUL, HILARIOUS, CRINGE-INDUCING, AWESOME, SWEET, TENDER, SEXY dialogue as well as Gregory Ashe.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wince...and then you'll wish the book was longer. So, is The Same End good, phenomenal, or what?  Yes, it is.  It’s brilliant and feat ...

The Same Place

The Same Place is book two in Gregory Ashe’s The Lamb and the Lion series about a Utah-based wildlife vet and a con man – an odd couple if ever there was one – who, in The Same Breath, teamed up to solve a murder.  Like its predecessor, this book is a perfectly balanced combination of myster ...

The Same Breath

In honour of one of the principal characters in this book, I'm going to start this review with some statistics.  Gregory Ashe’s The Same Breath is the fifth of his books reviewed in 2020 to get a DIK review (he’s received nine since February 2019).  It’s also the eighth book he’s published ...

A Much Younger Man

A Much Younger Man is, as the title would suggest a May/December romance, and it’s the first book in Z.A. Maxfield’s Men of St. Nacho’s series – a spin off of her earlier books set in the small California coastal town of St. Ingacio, (called St. Nacho’s by the locals).  It does feature so ...

The Sight of You

When you google The Sight of You, it comes up with the subheading ‘The Love Story of 2020’ a grandiose statement about a book that is the opposite of grandiose in the most lovely way. The Sight of You is very tender, and there’s a sense of humility in it and in its main characters, that makes ...
