Excerpt: My American Duchess by Eloisa James + Giveaway

English ladies never spoke to strangers, so he probably expected her to cower like a chambermaid. In that case, she would disappoint him. No American flinched before an Englishman, noble or otherwise. Head high, she met his eyes straight on, and sure enough, a distinct flash of surprise crossed his face. “Please forgive me for disturbing you, sir,” she said, curtsying. “I mistook you for one of my countrymen.” She could scarcely believe she’d felt pity for the man, because now she had the impression that she was sharing a small space with a large predator. She fell back a step with the aim […]

ARC review: Mercury Striking by Rebecca Zanetti

I might be (ok alot biased) since I really enjoy and love Ms. Zanettis books that I had to request for an ARC. And I read this book while I was on my flight to my holiday destination which made it a hell of a interesting flight. I would suggest everyone read the anthology On the Hunt because it introduces the world of scorpius syndrome and it features a great couple as well. I have surmised what happens to Lynne in the anthology to help with any confusion.   In the post apocalyptic world, USA is under attack from a new kind of space bacteria. The bacterial infection called scorpius […]

Review: The Baller by Vi Keeland

 : The Baller by Vi Keeland Review Rating~ 2.5 – 3 stars So I decided to give this a go even though nowadays I rarely take the risk of reading new to me contemporary romance authors. Mainly because of Arabella’s fab review which got me really interested. Brody Easton and Delilah’s story is about having a second chance at love.  Positives: I was really enjoying the banter and the chemistry between Delilah and Brody (and how much of a perv Brody is). The author was showing not only their relationship but also relationships with friends and family which was great since it not only added […]

Excerpt: Boiling Point by Tessa Bailey

Excerpt: Boiling Point by Tessa Bailey

“All yours. You’ve been its cruel keeper for months.” He tilted his hips, presenting himself to her in a way that should have been crude, but on Austin, it was all animal grace. “At any time at all, you could have demanded me. Sent me to my knees to lick you off with one word. Grabbed my cock through my pants in front of everyone and told them who it belonged to.” His eyelids drooped as if the scenario was an aphrodisiac. “Please yourself with me, Polly. My body. My cock. Own it all.” “I will,” she whispered, shaken by his speech. Emboldened by […]

Review: Games of the Heart by Kristen Ashley

Review This along with The Will are possibly my fav contemporary romance by KA. Maybe it’s because they felt different then the rest of the books by KA. It still has drama, angst, guy being a prick to the girl at the start etc but I think it’s because Dusty was a good protagonist, she was a blunt person not hiding what she thought and Mike after he stopped being judgmental and a wuss on taking a chance with Dusty, he was ok too. The only problem I had with this book was Warning: Rambling and SPOILERS ahead: “And he did not need a […]

Short review: Angels Fall by Nora Roberts

Short review: Angels Fall by Nora Roberts

Short Review Rating 2.5- 3 stars. Hmm the whole small town which should have come across as quaint and wholesome didn’t…instead it came off across as a small town with a very idyllic view but extremely unempathetic people. I really don’t understand why anyone would prefer to live there but Reece and Brody did clearly. The only person I liked was Reece. She was a strong lead who had been through so much and was still trying to get back and be as normal as she could. Her love interest Brody was a mystery writer and was big on the whole tough love and […]

Review: Sealed with a Hiss by E.A Price

Review An excellent, dazzling five stars for Sealed with a Hiss! This somewhat unconventional paranormal shifter book is the fourth book in E.A’s Supernatural Enforcer Agency (SEA) series and is definitely a book you cannot put down! So high fives forver Ms. Price!! The story begins with Gerry who is a python shifter (a nice change from the multitude of Feline/Canine shifter books in the genre) and Jessica (squirrel shifter). Despite their vast difference, not just their animals, with Jessie being a nerdy and adorable IT tech and Gerry a serious and much older Director, the two hit it off. The two overcome many […]
