Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Read Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh

There isn’t a sub-genre in romance that Nalini Singh can’t do. This isn’t a surprise for us readers who have been following her writing career for a while now. That said, I was blown away by just how good she is the moment I started reading Rebel Hard. It is, hands down, my favorite Nalini Singh contemporary to date! So if you haven’t read Nalini Singh before or if you’ve only known her PNR and UF titles, I’ve compiled the top 5 reasons why you should give her books, and this book in particular, a try. Forget about internet dating. All this traditional meet and greet and reject stuff was brutal. 1. The romance.

Review: Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews

Goodbyes are hard, and it’s even harder when you’re saying goodbye to a series that you’ve lived and breathed for the last year or so. I never expected how much this series would come to mean to me when I started reading Magic Bites last year. After 9 books, several novellas and one spin-off later, we finally get the final book in Ilona Andrews’ wildly successful Kate Daniels series, and they delivered! “You and me, Kate. We’re forever.” Magic Triumphs delivered an ending I will not soon forget. Ilona Andrews had painstakingly laid the foundations of this finale over the course of 10 books and several novellas.Everything that happened in this book was foreshadowed in previous books and delivered in a way that only Ilona Andrews can. I finished this book satisfied and yet oddly, craving for more. Kate has come a long way from a prickly mercenary who had […]

Review: Magic Slays (Kate Daniels #5) by Ilona Andrews

Review Ilona Andrews continue to impress with the fifth installment of the Kate Daniels series! Magic Slays not only upped the ante in terms of the action and the mystery but it also added a whole lot of emotional stakes. “I love you too, Kate. If you ever became hurt, I would not leave you. I’ll be there. Wherever you want‘there’ to be.”  I know you guys are tire of me saying this but this was another fantastic installment of the Kate Daniels series. There’s always a danger of a series getting stale right after the main couple of hooks up. Kate and Curran are a couple now. They’re together, and Ilona Andrews could’ve rested in their laurels but that didn’t happen. They’ve taken this series and added more meat into it. In this book, another layer of Kate’s character is exposed, right along Curran’s. Kate once again proved why […]

Review: Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels #4) by Ilona Andrews

Review “I can’t give you the white picket fence, and if I did, you’d set it on fire.” What can I say? Another amazing installment in the Kate Daniels series!!! Kate Daniels, mercenary and psuedo Knight of the order gets to meet a long lost family member. It should’ve been a happy family reunion but this is Kate Daniels we’re talking about and to say that her family is just dysfunctional is an UNDERSTATEMENT! The stakes just keeps getting higher and Kate is confronting bigger and more powerful beings. Man, the action in this book is top notch. There are so many moments where I don’t even know if Kate and Curran would come out of it alive. “Don’t die on me, you stupid sonovabitch. You goddamn fucking idiot. I told you to stay out of the damn fight! Why the hell don’t you ever listen? I fucking hate you. […]

Review: Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels #3) by Ilona Andrews

“I was conceived, born, raised and trained with one purpose in mind: to become the best killer I could be. It’s what I do.” There are two things that I was curious about coming into this series. One, I wanted to know why Kate Daniels is so universally beloved by readers. Two, I wanted to know why the Curran-and-Kate pairing was deemed the OTP by so many who loved the series. It becomes readily apparent why Kate and Curran are so loved by so many as the series progress. By the third book, I’m now a certified Kate Daniels evangelist. Yes! I love Kate’s character. She is one of my favorite heroines ever, if not my ultimate favorite. You just can’t help but love her character! If you look up “badass” in the dictionary, her picture would be in there. She’s brave, resourceful, and so hilarious. She’s also very relatable. […]

Review: Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis

Review: Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis

Jill Shalvis new Wildstone series have been all winners for me starting with Lost and Found Sisters, followed by Good Luck Sister and now Rainy Day Friends. “I’ve learned that life is a crapshoot, and at any moment someone can walk into it and change it forever.” I loved this book. I loved it more than I expected I would. That sounds like a backhanded compliment but let me explain. This book was marketed as Women’s Fiction, a genre that I read but not exactly my go-to genre. There’s always a risk of WF to fall short on the romance aspect. Not so with this book. Yes, this book is definitely about Lanie dealing about the death of her husband and the fallout of his infidelities. But what really gave this book its emotional weight was the romance between Lanie and Mark Capriotti. Their romance made me swoon! It was […]

Review: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

“I like you better than calculus, and math is the only thing that unites the universe.” Oh my gosh, this book! I’ve seen my friends gush about Helen Hoang’s debut for a month or so, and being a contrarian that I am, I tried to temper my expectations. I’ve been here before. Everyone I know loved a book and I’m like, ‘meh’. But that’s not the case here. The Kiss Quotient not only met my expectations, IT EXCEEDED IT! I finished this book with a huge grin on my face (always a good sign) and full heart. These characters that Hoang brought to life in the pages of her book made me laugh, cry, and fall in love with them. “You’re very good at the talking part.” “I’ve had sex. There isn’t a talking part.” A spark danced in his eyes. “There’s definitely a talking part.” Stella Lane is magnificent […]

A Princess in Theory by Alyssa ColeMy rating: 5 of 5 stars  From acclaimed author Alyssa Cole comes the tale of a city Cinderella and her Prince Charming in disguise . . .

Review: Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Down by Contact by Santino HassellMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Two rival football players begin a game with higher stakes than the Super Bowl in this steamy romance from the author of Illegal Contact. Simeon Boudreaux, the New York Barons’ golden-armed quarterback, is blessed with irresistible New Orleans charm and a face to melt your mama’s heart. He’s universally adored by fans and the media. Coming out as gay in solidarity with his teammate hasn’t harmed his reputation in the least—except for some social media taunting from rival linebacker Adrián Bravo. Though they were once teammates, Adrián views Simeon as a traitor and the number-one name on the New Jersey Predators’ shit list. When animosity between the two NFL players reaches a boiling point on the field, culminating in a dirty fist fight, they’re both benched for six games and sentenced to joint community service teaching sullen, Brooklyn teens […]

Blog Tour {The Slayer}: An Interview with Kele Moon

The Slayer by Kele Moon is hands down one of my favorite reads this year. I was simply in awe of how Kele Moon brought Chuito and Alaine’s story to life with this book. If you don’t believe me, check out my gushing review for The Slayer HERE. I simply adored this book and I was in massive hangover after reading it. It took me a while to recover from it to be honest. I was ecstatic when I got the opportunity to interview (ahem, more like bug) Kele for the blog tour she’s doing for the Slayer. And OHMYGOD, I can’t wait to share them all here with you. Kele was gracious enough to answer all of my questions. She talked about Chuito and Alaine, the difficulties she encountered while writing The Slayer, her favorite scenes, characters, etc. But before that, just some housekeeping stuff I need to get out there […]
