Happy Endings

My feelings in regard to Happy Endings are a bit complicated.  I really liked the feisty heroine and the more responsible hero.  But some readers are going to find his choices a bit irritating.  Reader discretion should be applied, but I still had fun with the book’s humorous, spunky spirit. ...

Enjoy the View

Sarah Morgenthaler’s Moose Springs, Alaska  is usually a funny, charming, and dare I say quirky place to visit.  But its third installment, Enjoy the View, about a starlet looking to remake her Hollywood career and the mountain man who helps her ascent, goes rancid from the second we meet our he ...

The Gentleman's Daughter

Historical mystery with a strong side of romance is my catnip so I was happy to pick up The Gentleman’s Daughter by Bianca Schwarz. It’s a well-written, if somewhat slow, dark mystery with an emphasis on romance. This is book two in the series, The Gentleman Spy Mysteries, and I had no trouble c ...

Footsteps of the Past

The first book in Felice Stevens’ new Second Chances series of contemporary romances - The List – introduced readers to Elliot, Spencer, Wolf and Chess, four men in their mid-thirties who have been best friends since their college days.  Footsteps of the Past is book two, and although it’s pr ...

Isn't It Bromantic?

So this is the Russian’s book. When I read the first two books in Lyssa Kay Adams’ The Bromance Book Club series, the humor involving this guy quickly wore out its welcome. I felt it was crass and narrow-minded for the only foreigner in the gang to not even have a name and to be the comic rel ...

How to Find a Princess

How to Find a Princess is one of Alyssa Cole’s more lighthearted books – but it’s also the weakest romance I’ve read from her so far.  I don’t think it’s bad by any stretch of the imagination – its warmth earns a B and a recommendation from me – but pacing problems keep this one fro ...

Last Guard

Last Guard is the fifth book in the Psy-Changeling Trinity series and the twentieth book overall in the Psy-Changeling universe. Due to the sequential, highly connected nature of the two series, this book contains spoilers for the previous novels. This review will, consequently, also contain spoiler ...

Ice Planet Barbarians

Here's my one sentence review of this book: "Ice Planet Barbarians is predictable, ridiculous, and a damn good time." You're looking for more, however, aren't you? You want to know why Ruby Dixon's wildly successful series about a group of women who, after being kidnapped from Earth and imprisone ...

Outrageous

Outrageous, the second book in Minerva Spencer’s Rebels of the Ton series, left me feeling unsatisfied. I had a hard time buying the romance and it seemed as though there were actually two stories and two heroines in the book - although there were only one of each. Eva de Courtney, daughter of ...
