Review: A Duke by Default (Reluctant Royals #2) by Alyssa Cole

My Review “You’re my liege. You’re the person I’m fighting for.” Alyssa Cole delivered another sweet and heartfelt romance with A Duke by Default! She continues to be one of my go-to contemporary romance authors these days. There’s just something about her stories and her characters that speaks to me as a reader. And this book, is a great example of what this talented author can do! Portia Hobbs might be my favorite Alyssa Cole heroine to date. When she was introduced, she was a bit of a hot mess. She has a truckload of issues that made her an interesting character to me. I didn’t like her that much in A Princess in Theory but I was curious about her. And I knew that Alyssa Cole is going to do her story justice. She was done with fuckboys, and fuckbosses for that matter, no matter how sexy their accents […]

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 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. […]
