Yes, yes…I know I’m late getting my list ready for you, faithful reader. Life gets busy sometimes and I get distracted. But here I am with my list! Yay!! Onward!
Dinca’s review of Indecent & Wicked by Tori Carrington Contemporary romance reissued by Harlequin Showcase 1 Sep 2010 Tori Carrington has done it again. I always enjoy her (their) stories. Of these two, I can’t even begin to tell you which one I liked best, Indecent or Wicked. They both had my full attention from page one. Although they [...]
C2’s review of Whisper Falls (Destiny Series, Book 3) by Toni Blake Contemporary Romance published by Avon 28 Dec 10 Whisper Falls takes us back to Destiny, Ohio, a small town that sounds a good bit like some towns I’ve visited in Ohio, actually. Small towns always play well in books, I think…they are much [...]
C2’s review of The Best of Friends by Susan Mallery Contemporary romance published by Pocket 28 Sep 10 Remember being young and having a huge crush on an older, completely unattainable guy? Someone who, if he even acknowledged your existence did it in the most offhand manor imaginable…since you’re practically strangers, really. Still, you just [...]
Lawson’s review of Sex on the Beach by Susan Lyons Contemporary Erotic Romance Released by Berkley Heat 5 Jan 10 It’s cold outside. There’s snow on the ground. And my TBR pile is all historicals. I think most of them are set during the winter, or at least the colder months. So I jumped at [...]
Sandy M’s review of One September Morning by Rosalind Noonan Contemporary Women’s Fiction released by Kensington 1 Jan 09 I’ve not read any books of any sort about 9-11 or anything to do with its aftermath since that cloudless, sky-blue September day in 2001. I never wanted to. I never felt the need to. So [...]
Limecello’s review of Only Tyler (Circle of Friends, Book 1) by Jess Dee Erotic romance eBook released by Samhain on 20 Jan 09 This is the first book to Jess Dee’s new two part series “Circle of Friends”. Only Tyler is the second book I’ve read by Jess Dee, and I enjoyed it immensely. I [...]
Liviania’s review of Plum Spooky (Between-the-Numbers Stephanie Plum) by Janet Evanovich Contemporary mystery released by St. Martin’s 6 Jan 09 The Between-the-Numbers Stephanie Plum books have always been fun but less satisfying that those in the actual series. For one thing, none of the previous three cleared 200 pages. There’s only so much you can [...]
Limecello’s review of Glitter Baby by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Fiction re-released by Avon on 30 Dec 08 Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of my favorite authors. Favorite. Glitter Baby is one of the few novels that Ms. Phillips wrote that I hadn’t yet read due to availability, so I’m so glad this one was reprinted. [...]
Sandy M’s review of Mayhem In High Heels (High Heels Mysteries, Book 5) by Gemma Halliday Chick Lit published by Making It 30 Dec 08 What a difference a year makes. I read and reviewed the fourth book in this series, Alibi in High Heels, in February 2008. I gave that book a B grade [...]

With the movie only [...]

Gwen’s review of Spectre (Zoë Martinique, Book 2) by Phaedra Weldon Contemporary urban fantasy released by Ace Trade 3 Jun 08 Attention authors! If you’re going to do first person, you may as well go all out and make it a conversation between the reader and your main character. Get personal, colloquial, and current. I [...]
Sandy M’s review of Decadent by Shayla Black Contemporary Erotic Romance released by Berkley Trade 2 Oct 07 I hadn’t planned on reading this book right now. I got caught in a situation where I didn’t have my current read handy, knew I’d go stir crazy without something to read while waiting and picked Decadent [...]
Sandy M’s review of The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox Contemporary Paranormal Romance released by Love Spell 29 Jul 08 This is a cute book. It has its moments. Yeah, there’s a but. I tried to let that “but” go, not pay any attention to it whenever possible. Sigh. Not even that helped.
