Tessa Dare does it again with The Governess Game! Read my review!

Tessa Dare writes my kind of romance. Her latest book proved that once again. The Governess Game is filled with relatable characters, playful banter, and a swoon-worthy romance. “First he was merely the Bookshop Rake, but as the weeks wore on, he made a rapid ascent up the rungs of the peerage. Sir Read. Lord Literature. The Duke of Hatchard’s.” When Alex Mountbatten ran (literally) into Chase Reynaud at Hatchard’s book shop, she had no idea that in a few months time she would be working as a governess for the two wards who came under his care. She was a clock-setter, not a governess. But some unexpected circumstances landed Alex her new position as Chase’s governess and thus, the Governess Game begins. And boy, did it ever begin. “You are the worst example of false advertising. I was led to believe I was hiring a prim scold. Then I […]

Review: Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean

My Review Sarah MacLean’s new Bareknucle Bastards series is off to a strong start with Wicked and the Wallflower. It’s a passionate and intriguing tale of three brothers who’re bound by the secrets of their pasts. “You don’t need lessons in fire. You are an inferno.” Wicked and the Wallflower is about the first brother, Devon, known as Devil to everyone—friends and enemies alike. Devil immediately captures the attention. At the start of the book, his only goal was to uphold a promise from his past but it’s how he goes about achieving those goals that put him immediately in the anti-hero category for me. In spite of that, Sarah MacLean was convincing in her campaign to show her readers that Devil deserves the heroine and a HEA. One of the reasons for this is the heroine Felicity Faircloth. Felicity Faircloth was perfection—the first taste of it Devil had ever […]

Review: Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas

This is going to be a short review. Full disclosure, I was given this copy by the author knowing full well this trope isn’t my favorite at all but she did still and asked me to look over some things. Anyway, this book got the forbidden part right. To me, when the book says it’s a forbidden romance, I always look for characters who struggle or fight against the attraction or the feelings because of how wrong it is. Oftentimes, forbidden just means titillation. That’s not how this book is. Birthday Girl has emotional stakes and character development. And that is all I ever wanted. Another stand out for me is Pike. Penelope Douglas is usually known for writing assholish, dickish heroes and Pike is none of that. He’s actually…dare I say it, sweet and considerate. Most of all, he’s not a boy. He’s a man. He already has stability […]

Review: Hurts to Love You

Hurts to Love You by Alisha RaiMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Being bad never felt so good, in the third novel in Alisha Rai’s sexy Forbidden Hearts series! Well-behaved women don’t lust after men who love to misbehave. Heiress Evangeline Chandler knows how to keep a secret . . . like her life-long crush on the tattooed hottie who just happens to be her big brother’s friend. She’s a Chandler, after all, and Chandlers don’t hook up with the help. Then again, they also don’t disobey their fathers and quit their respectable jobs, so good-girl rules may no longer apply. Gabriel Hunter hides the pain of his past behind a smile, but he can’t hide his sudden attraction to his friend’s sheltered little sister. Eve is far too sweet to accept anything less than forever and there’s no chance of a future between the son of a housekeeper and […]

Review: Out from Under You (Smart Girls Finish First #1) by Sophie Swift

“Love is an earthquake. It comes when you least expect it. It rips the ground clear away. Right out from under you.” This was me attempting to clean my TBR folder on my Calibre/Kindle last night. And this was me 3 hours later. TBR pile still in shambles but…I was able to not only finish Out From Under You but enjoyed it immensely. I was surprised at how much I liked this book considering: A. I hate when my hero and heroine cheat with each other.B. I hate love triangles. This book have both of those elements in heaps. Like massive, massive cheating with a giant obtuse triangle right in the middle of it. But I loved it. Why? The WRITING. Sophie Swift is a sword-smith. “Every time his lips crushed against hers in the hallway of our high school. Every time I heard the moans of their teenage experimentation […]

Pre-Release Blitz: Deep (Stage Dive #4) by Kylie Scott

I am so excited for Ben and Lizzy’s story to finally drop into our ereaders this coming March 31st! I gotta tell you, it’s a bittersweet feeling overall. I’ve followed this series since the very beginning and while I was ecstatic to finally get Ben and Lizzy’s story, I also felt sad because this means it’s the end of the line for our Stage Dive crew. 🙁 But don’t despair, I heard Kylie Scott has something exciting for us after Stage Dive. Anyway, I’ve read this book a while ago and I loved Ben and Lizzy together. But as much as the bearded wonder had me swooning from page one, it his amour Lizzy who really made the book for me. Kylie writes incredibly strong and fun heroines that I can relate to. If you want to read my review, just go HERE!! Amazon   Barnes & Noble Kobo iBooks Want […]
