Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Review: Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard

Steffi’s Review Initially, I was wary to start a book by Jamie Howard since I knew that her debut, Until We Break, had a few pet peeves of mine in the story line. The blurb of Until It’s Right sounded so appealing, however, that I decided to give this author a try myself. I am so glad I did. While I will probably never go back and read Until We Break, Until It’s Right made me a new fan of Jamie Howard’s. Haley Mitchell went through a tough break up. With an ex-boyfriend she was expecting to marry, Haley is finally ready to join the dating world again. When she meets Bryce […]

Review: A Better Man (Sunshine Creek Vineyard #1) by Candis Terry

Review: A Better Man (Sunshine Creek Vineyard #1) by Candis Terry

Steffi’s Review While A Better Man is my first book by Candis Terry and I didn’t know what to expect, I was immediately drawn in by the beautiful cover. A great suspenseful contemporary romance, I enjoyed spending time with the Kincade family but our hero, Jordan, didn’t click with me. After a tragic accident that kills Jordan’s parents, the hockey player returns home to his large family. After being absent for so long and only thinking about his career, Jordan has a lot to make up for, especially with his teenage sister, Nikki. Lucy is not only Nikki’s teacher, the one whose class she is failing, she is also the shy, […]

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Review: Here Comes The Rainne Again (Invertary #6) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Steffi’s Review Since reading her first published book, I’ve been a die-hard Janet Elizabeth Henderson fan. Her stories are written with a unique, quirky and witty voice that guarantees a good time! Here Comes The Rainne Again is almost like a mid-series wrap up – it ties up a lot of lose ends, introduces new characters and lets us revisit with some old favorites. Since the story relies heavily on the plot from previous books, you should at least have read Lingerie Wars (it’s free, so no reason not to get it:)). I’ve been waiting for Rainne and Alastair’s happy ending since the first book in the Invertary series. At that […]

Flashback Friday: Wild Thing by Anne Stuart

Flashback Friday: Wild Thing by Anne Stuart

  crista’s review  4 Stars! Leave it up to Anne Stuart to write a book like this. I wonder if she spends time thinking “What’s the most unlikely of heroes?” , and then sets out to make that person just that…a hero. This time, it’s “Tarzan!”….and it works. What I really liked was the humor. Stuart’s humor catches you off guard at times because it is so unexpected in the backdrop of her “dark” story-lines. In this one, Libby is a scientist hired to “study” this “wild man”. She feels sorry for him, let’s him go,…and he carries her off into the jungle like a sack of potatoes! She TALKS INCESSANTLY…prattling […]

Review: The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

Review: The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

  Steffi’s Review Being a big fan of Mariana Zapata’s writing, I was really excited about the release of The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me, especially since her other sports romance, Kulti, was a big hit with me. The Wall Of Winnipeg and Me certainly didn’t disappoint and it might actually be my new favorite by this author. All Adrian Graves wants to do and focus on is his football career. As one of the best defensive ends in the NFO, he wants to get the most out of the game he loves. That’s where Vanessa comes in. As his assistant, Vanessa takes care of Adrian’s life, from making appintments, running […]

Review: The Hurricane (The Hurricane #1) by R.J. Prescott

Review: The Hurricane (The Hurricane #1) by R.J. Prescott

Dorsey’s Review 4 Fighting for Love Stars!!! The Hurricane begins with Emily, a university student working as a waitress in a diner, and very obviously trying hard not to be noticed. She’s running from her horrific past and trying to stay free, so she keeps her head down, rarely makes eye contact, and never makes acquaintances. But that all changes when she befriends a cranky old man she waits on daily, then one day in walks a scary handsome man who she shows the first signs of life for. Cormac “The Hurricane” O’Connell is a fighter at the gym Danny owns, and when he meets Emily his whole world changes. “She […]

Review: RoomHate by Penelope Ward

Review: RoomHate by Penelope Ward

Crista’s Review ROOMHATE by Penelope Ward was a quick, emotion-filled, romantic read that I was able read in less than a day.  It was a book that I wasn’t quite sold on, so I played it safe and downloaded the sample before committing.   If only the book could have kept the same intensity going as the first three chapters!! This is a love story that spans many years.  Our main characters lived next to one another growing up and were best friends.  As they went through puberty, that friendship grew into a deeper attraction.  When Amelia discovers a painful truth and decides to move away, her decision breaks Justin’s heart and […]

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Crista says: The Story Guy is a quick and short read that never comes across that way. It is multi-layered, unique, and memorable. Brian Newburgh and Carrie West meet online after Carrie answers a personal add. The add states that Brian is looking for a Wednesday afternoon weekly meeting that will consist of “kissing only”. The add clearly states that this meeting will not result in a relationship or anything further sexual. Kissing only. This is of course a romance novel, so the rules set up in the personal add were meant to be broken:) Although this relationship starts out “playing by the rules”, as the chemistry heats up between Brian […]

Review: Magenta Mine (Invertary #3) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Review: Magenta Mine (Invertary #3) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Steffi’s Review Janet Elizabeth Henderson convinces in this hilarious, quirky and very sweet Invertary novella! While Magenta Mine is part of the Invertary series, and I highly recommend all books, it can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. Magenta Fraser and Harry Boyle have been friends since childhood. The resident genius, Harry started university at 16 and left a 13-year-old Magenta behind in Invertary. When he visits his hometown again on his first semester break, Magenta won’t have anything to do with him. Years later, Harry is back in town and he won’t let Magenta push him away again. After all, she is the love of his life. Magenta comes off […]
