ARC Review: If I Only Had A Duke by Lenora Bell

Rating ~ 4-4.5 stars This was my first read by the new historical romance author Lenora Bell but it’s definitely won’t be the last. I had a blast reading this one. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series and as I write this I’m already starting the first book in the series. Lady Dorothea Beaumont likes living in Ireland with her aunt far away from London and the eyes of the society, this is would be her last season which means no more balls and parties, no more marriage talk. All Thea wants to do is get it over […]

Review: Worked Up by Tessa Bailey

DNF at 41% I’m going to keep it simple. I tired guys I really did. I read the first two chapters stopped because I wasn’t feeling it and forced myself again a few days later when I felt like I was in a good mood unfortunately it still wasn’t working for me. I have enjoyed Tessa Bailey’s books, I mean the woman can write some sizzling chemistry and a marriage of convenience with very inconvenient attraction trope is usually very fun to read but unfortunately I just didn’t feel any connection to the characters or them as a couple.  The first couple of chapters, […]

Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

If there was one anthology that I could take with me to a desert island, it would be this one. All four books have very different vibe to each other which is I guess is what makes it a great anthology, you get all different types of tropes. All the couples and their stories are uniquely suited to them as characters. Gah I loved it. Also the cover, I want that hair color that Kenji has, alas I’m not confident enough. This is going to be as spoiler free as I can make it because seriously you need to read it. Echo of Silence: Rating […]

Review and Giveaway: Hero of Mine by Codi Gary

Review Dani Hill doesn’t have time to get involved with anyone, as a single mom with 2 jobs she doesn’t have much time to socialise let alone get involved with a man. Enter Sergeant Tyler Best, a dog trainer at Alpha Dog training facility. He doesn’t do relationships at all that is until he sees a pint sized blonde take on a man for a dog. Doesn’t hurt that she’s beautiful.  I enjoyed how they were during their actual relationship with their banter, laughter and some sweetness.  The overall plot was good, however nearer to the end it was a lot of stuff just happening one after […]

Excerpt and Giveaway: Worked Up by Tessa Bailey

Unbelievable. First, Duke couldn’t get a damn moment of peace in his house, now his only refuge, The Third Shift, had been invaded. Was it so much to ask in life for a sporting event to go uninterrupted by a woman? Granted, the doe-eyed brunette hadn’t asked for his assistance—and she was a far cry from the four sisters terrorizing his household indefinitely—but an interruption was an interruption, no matter how you sliced it. He couldn’t help but notice this particular disruption was…pretty. Too pretty for him. Not that her appearance mattered one way or another to Duke. Facts were facts, though. She had […]
