Devil’s Mark by Megan Crane

A few years ago I went through a massive pile of books about MC’s, I loved them, could not get enough, and then I burnt myself out. I’ve started reading them again, and thankfully I am remembering why I loved them in the first place. Plus I really liked the heroine in this book is basically like the town princess, so the idea of her hooking up with the town bad boy is kind of hot. When we first meet Killian, or “Uptown,” as he is known to the club, he has a big chip on his shoulder. He definitely didn’t grow up easy, and he is finally at the point where he can bring down the hurt on the town mayor. As it turns out Killian and the mayor have a past, the mayor used to provide Killian’s mom with drugs and hook up with her. Totally understandable why he would hate the mayor. So when the mayor’s daughter Holly walks into the club bar looking for a job, Killian sees this as the perfect opportunity to get back at the mayor and maybe even get Holly into his bed. I really liked Holly, she had a lot more backbone then I was expecting out of her. She grew up a princess, always following the rules, doing exactly what he dad wanted her to, basically little miss perfect. And now that it’s come out that her father isn’t the guy she thought he was she is feeling kind of […]

Romancing Dr. Love Blitz!

  It’s all about the chemistry. ROMANCING DR. LOVE Sterling University #1 Rebecca Heflin Releasing March 7th, 2017   Dr. Samantha Love says it’s all about the chemistry. A brainy psychology professor and researcher, Sam has based her entire academic career on the theory that what we call love is simply a chemical reaction. She is currently running a study to prove that her compatibility blood test reveals perfect matches—sort of like an organ donor, but for relationships. No romance required.   Along comes sexy literature professor, Dr. Ethan Quinn, who says it’s all about the romance. He thinks the pretty psychology professor has taken love and all its mysteries and reduced it to something as romantic as a cholesterol test, and he sets out to prove her theory wrong. When Ethan signs up for her study, Sam discovers to her horror, that according to her compatibility test, they are a perfect match. Sam faces an existential crisis over her career and her research. If she believes in her science, shouldn’t it follow that she believes Ethan is her perfect mate? And if she doesn’t believe he’s her perfect mate, doesn’t that bring into question her research? Her compatibility test? Her reputation? And her very career? As Sam struggles with her dilemma, Ethan pursues her with all the romantic tactics in his arsenal. Will Sam’s theories succumb to his challenge? Or will Ethan lose the battle for Sam’s heart?   ONLY .99 CENTS SPECIAL PRE-ORDER PRICE  a Rafflecopter giveaway

New Year and a Blog Reboot

Posted January 1, 2017 by Kate in Updates / 0 Comments

Hey Guys, It’s a new year and I’m so excited for it. I am going to start doing things a little bit different on the blog. Some of this started in the last parts of last year, but I am enforcing these changes officially this year. I am no longer accepting reviews with hard deadlines, with the exception of from a few authors I work with regularly or publishing houses that I work with regularly. I love reviewing books, last year I set myself up to fail big time. I took every scheduled review that came my way, and then when I got behind I felt so bad that I just wanted to stop reviewing all together. That is not what I want. So my plan for this year is to read what ever I want in whatever order I want, so I have more freedom to choose what I am in the mood for, and then post a review right after I finish reading it. No more making having a dedicated reading order or feeling stuck having to read a happy sweet romance when all I want is some super angsty drama (or vice versa). I’m not going to be aiming for 200 reviews this year, I’m just going to review as I read, which should mean a lot more reviews for the site. I can’t tell you how many books I read last year that never got reviewed because I was so backed up on reviews that were scheduled […]

Only for You by Naima Simone

Only for You by Naima Simone

I wasn’t sure what to expect out of this book, I liked the blurb, the idea behind two people running into each other after a long time apart, separated by more then just time, but also by betrayal. Just works for me. What can I say I am a sucker for the drama, I like when two people have a lot of pain and suffering to work through. Honestly, the reason why this book gets three stars for me is because it’s almost exclusively physical. Yes there are some emotional moments, but most of the emotional turmoil is internal and all happens while naked and heating up the pages. Don’t get me wrong I like some hotness in my books, but I also like there to me more than just physical. Our leading man is Killian (seriously love this name lately) and he’s definitely carrying some serious baggage. He was sent to jail for two years, after the woman he loved basically turned him in and he never heard from her again. He has some serious PTSD like symptoms when it comes to dealing with his experiences in jail, mostly in confined spaces. He’s definitely more guarded, and opposed to letting people in. So when Gabby shows up in his nightclub, its not at all something he was prepared for. I totally understood why he was apprehensive about seeing her, being with her, loving her, etc. It makes total sense. But there is still a lot of heat going on […]

Could’ve Said Yes by Tracy March

I can honestly say I don’t think I have read a book where someone works for the EPA, sure there have been the occasional book where one of the characters is really big on the environment, but never someone who worked for the EPA. So because of that reason I was pretty interested in reading this book. I actually really loved the environmental aspect of the book, it really worked for me. Ellie is back in town after a disastrous break up with her ex, she’s finally doing what she really wants to do now that she is on her own. She opened her own art gallery and does some side photography work for the newspaper, all in all her life is going pretty good. She also has some really good relationships with her brothers, who I really liked. So when the new guy shows up in town, it definitely opens her to the possibility of a relationship, something I don’t think she was expecting. I really liked the way the author was able to describe Ellie’s photography and art, sometimes its hard to visualize in my head what exactly an author is talking about when it comes to art, but this was really easy for me to see, and I loved it. I also really loved the dynamics between Ellie and the town, it’s a small town so everyone knows everyone, and they all really seemed like good people. Now as for our hero, Collin I really liked him.

Being Brooke by Emma Hart

Being Brooke by Emma Hart

Ah friends to lovers! One of my favorites to read. So obviously Emma Hart is one of my favorite authors, and after the ending of her Holly Woods Files series, I needed something to fill the gap, and this was the perfect book. I love Emma’s wit in her books, she always has one of two characters who are just super sassy and make me laugh out loud, they always make the book such a fun time, and this was definitely the case here. Brooke is awesome, there is no way around that. She’s at a point in her life that I can totally relate to, she’s dropped out of college, working at a pretty much dead end job that she’s thrilled with, but without a real direction on where to go from there. The good thing is that she has some seriously awesome friends, Carly and Cain. The problem of course is that Brooke is in love with Cain, pretty much everyone else is aware of this fact, and Cain is dating a woman who seriously dislikes both Brooke and Carly. In a lot of ways Cain is kind of being pulled in two different directions, he wants to be a good boyfriend, but at the same time he has been friends with Carly and Brooke for a really long time, and they are basically like family to him. Of course I was rooting for Cain and Brooke to get together from like page one of the book, especially because […]

Womanizer by Katy Evans

I loved this cover, so much so I bought the book without reading the blurb, well that and I knew I already liked Katy Evans. I’m really glad I ended up buying this book because I really did enjoy it. Normally I think the whole CEO thing is overplayed, but in this case I think it worked. Part of the reason why it worked was because our heroine, Olivia, has a family connection to our hero, Callan. It wasn’t like she was some doe eyed girl straight off the bus or something, while they may have never met before they still had ties to each other, like Callan is Olivia’s brothers best friend (another of my favorites things in books). Truth be told my least favorite part of the book was the beginning. Olivia came off as super naive in the first few chapters, not exactly unlikable, but a little on my nerves. Plus her older brother is like super over protective, which probably contributed to her naivety. But as soon as she started her job and met the hot guy on the roof she really came out of her shell, and suddenly I liked her a lot more. I know smoking is a terrible habit and all that jazz, but honestly sometimes a hot guy smoking a cigarette in the dark can be super hot, and Callan makes it super hot. I liked that he breaks his own rules. I liked the cute little interactions that Callan and Olivia […]
