Egomaniac

Egomaniac by Vi Keeland My rating: 4 of 5 stars Easy, breezy read I primarily read romantic suspense and/or dark romance, but every now and then I really need a contemporary romance to give myself a break from the heavy reads and cleanse my palate. And this worked great for that.I liked the cocky/arrogant attitude […]

Vanquish (Deliver, #2)

Vanquish by Pam Godwin My rating: 4 of 5 stars Thankfully not as dark as the first, but still dark This series deals with dark (as in pitch-black) subject matter. This second book details the attempted redemption of Van from the first book. In the first book he was unforgivable. Selfish. Cruel. He did incredible […]

Deliver (Deliver, #1)

Deliver by Pam Godwin My rating: 4 of 5 stars Whoa- that was completely unexpected! I had put off reading this book as I had thought it would be too much of a departure from my usual reads. I like a book with an alpha hero, and thought this would be one where the female […]

An Escort for Christmas aka Unwrapping Mr. King

An Escort for Christmas by A. Zavarelli My rating: 4 of 5 stars Enjoyable fluff Aaah, this was just what I needed- a quick, fluffy novella.

Hear Me

Hear Me by Skye Warren My rating: 4 of 5 stars Unique and different Well, that was unexpected. This book was different from the boatload of “kidnapped and trained” stories out there. It wasn’t about what happened while in captivity, but what happened after. Even what happened beforehand wasn’t covered (revealed) until nearly the end. […]

Ranieri Andretti: A Second-Chance, Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novella (The Five Syndicates Book 3)

Ranieri Andretti: A Second-Chance, Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novella by Parker S. Huntington My rating: 4 of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! Well- color me impressed! I usually do not like novellas, and sometimes not even standalones, due to the limited pages in which to build characters/a relationship. However, THIS novella being a second chance story where […]

Trust in Me (Dark Nights, #1)

Trust in Me by Skye Warren My rating: 4 of 5 stars Coming on the heels of Keep Me Safe I was so happy to read Trust In Me. And by “happy” I mean still horrified by the subject matter, but finding the book to be more fleshed out.As the author’s forward warns, along with […]

Stutter: A Dark Billionaire Romance (Bleeding Hearts Book 2)

Stutter by A. Zavarelli My rating: 4 of 5 stars A solid wrap up, but less suspenseful than the first book First off, I really enjoyed this duet. Let’s get that out of the way. The suspense was great (particularly in the first book), and I loved Ryland and Brighton. I think the author did […]
