Untamed by Pamela Clare

Untamed by Pamela Clare

Surrender was a blast but Untamed has given the MacKinnon’s Rangers series by Pamela Clare a whole new dimension. I discovered Pamela Clare through her I-Team series and was then introduced to her historicals. I wasn’t expecting to be as drawn into the stories as with her suspense books, but I was….no surprise there. Anyone who has read Pamela Clare knows that she always manages to create an amazing web of different stories when she writes a book and it never fails to amaze me. Untamed is Morgan MacKinnon’s story. After Iain has found love with Annie, it is Morgan’s turn to give his heart to a courageous woman. The following […]

Rock Chick Regret by Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Regret by Kristen Ashley

5 Stars! Another hit in the Rock Chick series. I’m on a Hector and Sadie HIGH!! I’ll be honest with you; Hector pissed me off in the beginning when Sadie went into Nightingale Investigations to inquire about hiring them for her protection. He let everyone believe that she was everything they thought she was, when he knew better. Hector was aware that Sadie was nothing like her father, even tried to help him when he was undercover and he never opened his mouth to tell them any different. That’s what made what happened to her even more heartbreaking. BUT like a true Hot Bunch hero, he stepped up to the plate…big […]

Rock Chick Reckoning by Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Reckoning by Kristen Ashley

5 Stars!! This book ROCKED!! I know I’m in the minority amongst my GR friends, but this book was damn near perfect for me, and IMO, the best so far in the RC series. I loved “seven hundred and twenty-five thousand things” about it, but I especially enjoyed that Mace and Stella had history. They were an item at one time and I was fascinated by this, finding out what tore them apart, watching them mend, building on what they had and moving forward! They were BOTH stubborn, and I know, I know some of you think that Stella was at fault for the relationship breaking apart and she wasn’t quite […]

ARC: Giving It Up by Amber Lin

ARC: Giving It Up by Amber Lin

The most amazing book I have read in a long time. Giving It Up is an outstanding tale about a woman on the journey of finding herself and realizing that she is worth so much more than she believed. The uber-hot Colin accompanies her on that journey and it turns out he has some demons to battle himself. Once a month, Allie goes on the prowl for a man, one that takes her hard and rough. Maybe a little too rough, but that’s exactly what she wants; to escape to that place without pain because that’s what she deserves right? That’s what sex is about. Sex hurts and she has to […]

Fury of Ice by Coreene Callahan

Fury of Ice by Coreene Callahan

Nice second installment in the series, but not without some issues. First off let me say that I loved Angela and Rikar’s pairing, a great match between two strong characters. Angela was kick-ass awesome and Rikar was so in tune with her, wanted her so badly, but treated her with kid gloves and let her take the lead in their relationship. It seems to be the trend in this series, as it was Myst who initiated intimacy with Bastian in their book. The women are the aggressors when it comes to “first contact” and I rather enjoy that for a change! I also relished the strong presence of all the characters […]

Easy by Tammara Webber

Easy by Tammara Webber

5 HUGE STARS!! When I picked up this book I was hoping to get an angst-filled young adult romance, with a swoon-worthy dreamy boy that would propel me back to my youth…make me feel young… and give me that floating on a cloud feeling. I got all that and SO MUCH MORE!! I’m not going to delve in the plot, because there is much to be said about the element of surprise and the impact it holds. So much is better just left unsaid. However, I will say that this is a book about choices, the nasty and the sweet side of life, empowerment, and friendship. Jacqueline and Lucas are brought […]
