Home Tears by Tijan

I keep hearing about this author and yet I haven’t picked up one of their books yet, so when I saw this book was available on Kindle Unlimited I decided now was as good of a time as any to check out the author. I have to say I am pretty pleased with the book, and I can easily see why so many other people are talking about this authors work. I looks book where the main character is coming home, and honestly I read this book at just the right time, I was on at home after almost six years away, so this kind of hit just the right spot for me. I also really liked how much family was a component of the book, Dani is coming home to heal from some pretty traumatic experiences, which also means having to deal with all the family and drama that she left behind all those years ago. There is a lot to unpack when it comes to the issues in Dani’s family. I mean she has the death of her sister, her ailing aunt, her sister who pretty much seems to hate her, and then there are all of the family secrets that Dani starts to uncover. Oh and did I mention that Dani’s ex, who also happens to be her childhood best friend and first of everything, is also the same guy who left her for her sister and has now moved on to yet another sister. I mean […]

Twined Bond by Emma Hart

I have loved this series from the very beginning. I love the moments that make me laugh out loud, I love the moments of tenderness between Drake and Noelle, I love the times I’m sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next, and so much more. When I found out this book was going to be the last book in the series, I have to admit that I wasn’t excited about reading it, because honestly I don’t want this series to be over. But I buckled down and read it, and I have never been so happy to love Emma Hart as an author, I think she did the characters so proud, and at the end I felt sad that it was over but happy with the outcome (which honestly is rare for me when a series comes to an end). So much of this book is a spoiler, and I really think if you are a fan of the series, that you need to experience this book without knowing the spoilers ahead of times. So basically this is going to be a hard review to write because I don’t want to spoil anything. So if you have gotten this far in the series you know that Drake and Noelle are super solid at this point, they are engaged, and I couldn’t be happy for them. This book really brings them even closer together in more ways then one, which I loved. These two of […]

Welcome Home for Christmas by Annie Rains

I think I’ve made it unbelievably clear in years past how much I love Christmas, I mean Christmas is my jam, if it could happen year round I would be in heaven. So needless to say I love when Christmas books start making their rounds, yes please! So this book is cute I guess is the best way that I would describe it. It is clearly a feel good book, definitely a steady dose of candy and sweetness. So Allison is our heroine, and she is dreading the family events for Christmas. That’s not to say she is dreading Christmas itself, she loves this time of year, but her mom points out her man issues at every turn. I get why she wants to avoid that. So she solves the problem with a fake relationship with a military cop that she “purchases” at a charity auction. Allison is likable for the most part. She’s clearly a good person, she works with vets, volunteers with orphans, goes above and beyond to help people, there is even an instance when she gives away her lunch when she’s hungry. But I didn’t love her. For someone who is so dedicated to helping people get back on their own feet, she is sorely lacking conviction and confidence in her own life, and she lets other people in her head so much that I just couldn’t love her. Troy I liked more. He’s the cop that Allison bought at auction. Now he’s not such a […]

Lessons in Gravity by Megan Westfield

I can honestly say I haven’t read any romances with climbing involved. Sure I’ve read books with some of the more adventurous sports, like snowboarding, motor biking, etc but never anything with rock climbing. I think the reason why this book appealed to me so much is two fold, one I kind of have this idea in my head that rock climbers are somewhat fearless and I want to be more like that, and two I am planning a move to Montana and let’s face it there is probably some awesome rock climbing out that way so I want to learn before I move. One thing I appreciated about this book was that even though climbing was the back drop for the entire book, the author did a great job at getting me understand enough of it to get what was going on, but didn’t overload me to the point where I got confused (seeing as how I have no experience). The author also did a really good job at describing the scene, I could picture the meadow where they met for interviews, the area where they did the final climb, and the little lake they would take a frozen dip in when they finished a climb. I love when I can see it in my head. Josh and April as characters were both pretty interesting. You get a much better feel for April early on in the book, it is her POV after all. But she really interesting and […]

My Addiction by Cassie Ryan

I must admit that I’m not the world’s biggest fan of BDSM books, and it’s not because I don’t like the content, but rather because the BDSM elements always seem to be done badly, or the elements overwhelm the book to the point where the characters are more like caricatures. I am one of those people who NEED character development in my books. The blurb on this book convinced me to take a chance on this book. I’m glad I did, it really was enjoyable. So we meet Dex, who is my kind of man physical & personality wise, he is coming into a new dungeon, but it’s not all for fun, it’s because he has a job to do. He was sent to The Dungeon as an undercover cop who is sent in to make contact with Kate, a woman who is suspected of helping to funnel money to terrorist organizations. It turns out she is a sub whose Doms all seem to be high powered men who may also be involved in this plot. From the moment we meet Dex, I liked him. He intercedes when he first meets Kate in a bad position, he doesn’t overpower her or treat her like she is fragile, which I really liked. He is cares about Kate and seems determined almost from the beginning to make sure he can prove that Kate had nothing to do with what is going on. I liked how sweet he was with Kate. I also […]
