Fragile Scars (Fragile Hearts Standalone Series #1)

Fragile Scars by Lilian Harris My rating: 4 of 5 stars Four “really liked it” stars! Color me impressed! This book took an incredibly sensitive topic, and showed it from multiple angles (insider, outsider, adult, child). And she showed it respect while doing it. She described the fear of being in a relationship with someone […]

Untouchable

Untouchable by Sam Mariano My rating: 5 of 5 stars DARK romance Wow… this turned out to be quite different than I anticipated. In a GOOD way. I had read a few reviews, so I expected dark. But this started out REALLY dark. Still, throughout the story the author did an excellent job of building […]

Another (A surprise pregnancy romance)

Another by Fiona Cole My rating: 3 of 5 stars I liked it, but I didn’t love it While this book contains one of my favorite tropes (secret baby/pregnancy), I didn’t end up loving it as much as I’d hoped to love it. I still liked it, but something wasn’t quite there for me. Perhaps […]

I See You

I See You by Ker Dukey My rating: 4 of 5 stars Well, dang it… guessed the twists halfway through Shucks. I guessed the twists on this one. It was still good, I still really liked the book, but there was a specific foreshadow that gave it away for me with each of the big […]

Cards of Love: The High Priestess

Cards of Love: The High Priestess by Olivia Ryann My rating: 3 of 5 stars Left me wanting Well, shucks. I have so enjoyed the two series (Arsen and Dryas’ stories) associated with this book (Damen’s story), and was looking forward to this one. Unfortunately this book (more of a novella, really) left me wanting. […]

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 […]

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. The literary equivalent of Hostess Snowballs- no nutritional value, it doesn’t fill you up, but it tastes good all the same.It takes place at Christmas time, so it would […]

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. […]
