REVIEW: When I Need You by Lorelei James

Book CoverVeena’s review of When I Need You (Need You Series, Book 4) by Lorelei James
Contemporary Romance published by Berkley 25 Jul 17

Dear Readers, what is your opinion about friendship between two gorgeous heterosexuals?  You’ll find Ms. James’ answer to that question in her latest contemporary romance in the Need You series.  To further make matters more interesting, the two in question also have some very specific qualifying rules on the people they will date. Needless to say, rules were meant to be broken, and so the story proceeds… read more…

REVIEW: Pieces of Me by Shiloh Walker

Book CoverSandy M’s review of Pieces of Me by Shiloh Walker
Romantic Suspense published by Shiloh Walker 25 Jul 17

Shiloh Walker is one of those authors who has taught me to never doubt her. She will always pull me in with her characters, consume me with her story, and make me read into the wee hours of the morning. In this book Shadow will break your heart while at the same time making it soar with her newfound courage. Dillon will lay you flat with his gentleness, kindness, and alphaness when it comes to Shadow and trying to make her whole again. I couldn’t put this book down. No wonder Shiloh Walker is one of my all-time favorite authors.

REVIEW: The Flirtation by Tara Sue Me

Book CoverTabs’ review of The Flirtation (Submissive Series, Book 10)  by Tara Sue Me
Erotic Romance published by Berkley 08 Aug 17

Tara Sue Me’s latest entry in the Submissive Series is a solid second-chance romance. Lynne is new to the BSDM lifestyle but is ready to dip her toe back in after her first try ended on a sour note. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to get her ex out of her head. Flirting with him under an alias on BSDM social media is definitely wrong, but she just can’t resist. If she takes a do-over and embraces the things she let fear hold her back from, could things end up differently for them?

REVIEW: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

Book CoverKristie J’s review of Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland
Contemporary Romance published by Amazon Digital Services 15 Jul 17

I’ve recently discovered Vi Keeland and been most pleased.  I’ve enjoyed the books she’s written alone as well as the ones she has written with Penelope Ward.  So when I received notice that her latest book was out, it took me no time at all to pick it up and dig in.  I know I’m in for a good read filled with lots of smiles.

REVIEW: A Mother Like Mine by Kate Hewitt

Book CoverStevie‘s review of A Mother Like Mine (Hartley-by-the-Sea, Book 3) by Kate Hewitt
Women’s Fiction published by Berkley 08 Aug 17

While I greatly enjoyed the first Hartley-by-the-Sea novel, and loved the characters and setting of the second, my nitpicky brain had issues with some of the background details in that one that didn’t quite feel right for a UK-set story about born-and-bred Brits. We’ve met one of the main protagonists in this third novel as a background character in previous books, but the other is new to regular readers, although a returning former resident of the village.

REVIEW: Wake Up Call by JL Merrow

Book CoverStevie‘s review of Wake Up Call (Porthkennack, Book 1) by JL Merrow
Contemporary Gay Romance published by Riptide Publishing 17 Apr 17

I love the idea of shared universes, particularly those created by a good mix of well-loved authors and authors who are new to me. While most of the series of that ilk I’ve encountered through Riptide and other publishers have featured stories set in one time period – be that historical or contemporary – the Porthkennack novels promise a mix of contemporary and historical romances. Somewhat fittingly, however, the introduction to the series shows us the Cornish town of Porthkennack through the eyes of two newcomers, both of whom have family links to the area.

REVIEW: Mr. Hockey by Lia Riley

Book CoverKristie J’s review of Mr. Hockey (Hellion Angels, Book 1) by Lia Riley
Contemporary Romance published by Avon Impulse 11 Jul 17

Sybil tweeted a few months ago about this book.  The cover was great and when I read the outline, it sounded good. So I pre-ordered it.  It came in a few days ago, and, even though it’s a lot more baseball weather than hockey, I figured I’d read it anyway

I’ve read some other books by this author and liked them and liked this one too.  Although he’s a hockey hero about town, Jed West is a lot more down to earth than one might expect.  Sure, he sowed his wild oats earlier – what hot athlete who is admired and wanted by young women wouldn’t, but he’s past that now and is more of a regular guy who doesn’t take what’s offered all the time.

DDS REVIEW: Days of Wine and Roses by Jess Dee

Sandy M’s Duckies Do Series review of Days of Wine and Roses Series by Jess Dee
Contemporary Erotic Romance published by Entangled Scorched 17 Jul 17

When I came upon these three books for review by Jess Dee, I recalled that I read a couple of her books a number of years ago and really enjoyed them. So I thought I’d like to read her again all these years later, knowing that I would be engrossed in a good time once again. I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting, but what I got…
