Thirty Days of Hate (Thirty Days #3)

Thirty Days of Hate by Ginger Talbot My rating: 4 of 5 stars Book 3 status: I still don’t like Sergei I’ve downgraded my negative feelings toward Sergei from hate to mere dislike. Perhaps loathe. I still think he is completely unsuitable as a partner. He doesn’t need a wife and family. He needs a […]

Thirty Days of Shame (Thirty Days #2)

Thirty Days of Shame by Ginger Talbot My rating: 4 of 5 stars Similar to the first book, I still hate Sergei. I get it: he is messed up. He had a horrific upbringing. That said, his treatment of Willow is still inexcusable. He is no romance book hero- he is the villain of a […]

Thirty Days of Pain (Thirty Days #1)

Thirty Days of Pain by Ginger Talbot My rating: 4 of 5 stars Warning: super dark I feel I need to open this review with a warning about this book: it is very, very dark. Triggers: non-con, graphic physical abuse, reference to non-con of minors (“off-screen”). Okay, now that we’ve covered that, on to the […]

Bound by Love (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles, #6)

Bound by Love by Cora Reilly My rating: 4 of 5 stars I was a bit disappointed in how much of this book reflected what had already happened in the previous books without adding too much to the story. The story lines with Aria’s visit to Chicago, her pregnancy, and Luca’s response to Aria’s trip/betrayal […]

Lies (Web of Sin, #2)

Lies by Aleatha Romig My rating: 3 of 5 stars I love this author. I do. But I only liked this book. It was still a good book. It was still hot. It still had a delightfully possessive alpha who does bad things. BUT, somehow it didn’t quite do it for me. Like I said- […]

Secrets (Web of Sin, #1)

Secrets by Aleatha Romig My rating: 4 of 5 stars I love this author. I do. But I only liked this book. This is the first read from her that didn’t make me want to create a 6-star scale just for her to adequately capture her greatness. It was still a good book. It was […]

The Dark Knight Part One

The Dark Knight Part One by L.F. Piper My rating: 3 of 5 stars Good debut– 3.5 stars! I read that this book is the author’s first, and to that I say “well done!” I can’t write an honest review without acknowledging the grammar/word usage errors, of which there are many. I’m not petty- I […]

The Bad Guy

The Bad Guy by Celia Aaron My rating: 4 of 5 stars An easy and enjoyable read This was my first read by this author. Often I struggle with standalone books after getting so used to the character/story development afforded by a series, but this book did it well. There wasn’t an exorbitant amount of […]

Obsession Mine (Tormentor Mine #2)

Obsession Mine by Anna Zaires My rating: 5 of 5 stars Gah, this series! So good. Love the suspense. Love the angsty push/pull of Sara struggling with her conflicting feelings about Peter. Does she care about him? SHOULD she? If she does, does it make her a bad person? Would it betray her husband’s memory? […]
