I Dare You (Dare, #1)

I Dare You by Shantel Tessier My rating: 3 of 5 stars Plenty of twists, but it didn’t quite do it for me This was my second read by this author, the first being Slaughter. I LOVED Slaughter, and was fully expecting to love this as well. But then I didn’t. And I’m torn up […]

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 […]

Close Remembrance (The Krinar Chronicles, #3)

Close Remembrance by Anna Zaires My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m glad I finished this series, but this final book missed the mark a bit for me. The most suspenseful aspect for me was the villain (the reveal of whom would have made for a killer cliffhanger for book 2 as opposed to an […]

Close Obsession (The Krinar Chronicles, #2)

Close Obsession by Anna Zaires My rating: 3 of 5 stars I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first one. I kept reading, intrigued by the nameless villain, only to find that we don’t find out who he is, nor does any big plan go into action. As a result I felt like […]

Close Liaisons (The Krinar Chronicles, #1)

Close Liaisons by Anna Zaires My rating: 3 of 5 stars Let’s start with this: this is not my normal genre (meaning paranormal and/or extraterrestrial and/or fantasy). At all. I only read this because I am a die-hard Anna Zaires fan. As such I went in skeptical, but came out pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed a […]

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. […]

Niccolaio Andretti: An Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novel (The Five Syndicates Book 2)

Niccolaio Andretti: An Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novel by Parker S. Huntington My rating: 3 of 5 stars Sadly, this one dragged for me. I ended up skimming a bit through the flashbacks to get to the relationship sections. I was going to stop with the series, but the sneak peek of the next one at […]

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 […]

Wanderlust

Wanderlust by Skye Warren My rating: 3 of 5 stars Love this author, but not this book as a whole I am torn on this book. The concept is new and different- definitely not a tired rehash of something in 100 other books. There were several individual scenes in the book that were pretty hot. […]
