Review: Bitter Bite (Elemental Assassin #14) by Jennifer Estep

Review: Bitter Bite (Elemental Assassin #14) by Jennifer Estep

Karla’s Review 4 Stars! A good read but missing some of that “WOW” factor! I love the Elemental Assassin series and have been in it from the beginning. I anxiously wait for each release and my expectations are always high. Jennifer Estep usually meets or exceeds them, but Bitter Bite didn’t quite work for me as the other books in the series have. If I had to put my finger on what was missing I would say it was due to Deidre’s, Finn’s mother, elemental aspect. Part of what I look forward to is finding out what horrific power the evil entity possesses and she had an elemental power we’ve seen […]

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 […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Reviews Splage says: 5 Stars! This is the second book I’ve read by Barbara Elsborg and both have been big hits with me. I love that she can write knock-your-socks-off erotica with a meaty story and characters you fall in love with. Caspar is the brooding hero that the whole town hates. He is the son of an Earl, has zero money, zero potential to get a job because of a past tragedy that the town holds him responsible for and he can’t forgive himself for the incident either. He uses women, one night stands only, and he tries to do things to make people hate him even more. But, he’s the […]

The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me. When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me. But I don’t date players.
