Book Review: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

This book is loosely tied to my BELOVED (and I think widely beloved) The Others series by Anne Bishop. It’s in the same world so I absolutely jumped at the chance to read it – and I mean squealed out loud when I saw ‘The World of The Others’ on the cover. Which BTW is smart marketing and a super easy way to convey to readers that it’s not in the series but it’s in that same world. Which I totally appreciated and for me I got right away what that meant. Continue reading “Book Review: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop”

Book Review: If I Live by Terri Blackstock

If I Live, the third and final book in Blackstock’s If I Run series, is a fantastic conclusion to an action-packed series. Casey Cox is still on the run after being indicted for murder and Dylan Roberts, the investigator who once hunted her, is now her only hope. Can Casey and Dylan finally prove Casey’s innocence? Continue reading “Book Review: If I Live by Terri Blackstock”

Book Review: At First Sight by Delia Latham

At first sight, I think I’ve found a new author. Do you see what I did there?! 😉 This was the first book by Ms. Latham that I’ve read and it won’t be the last. Continue reading “Book Review: At First Sight by Delia Latham”

Book Review: Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

I’m pretty sure my Sarina Bowen love is established for all here in the blog so I won’t bother reiterating it and boring all of you yet again…but I love her writing. Brooklynaire is loosely attached to her Brooklyn Bruiser series – in that it’s connected to the series and those who’ve read the previous books have been wanting this book BUT if you picked this book up cold, never having read the earlier ones you would be completely fine. I think that is incredibly smart and must have been so hard to do! This couple wasn’t so established that fans were dying for them, but just teased enough that we wondered. I love that a new reader could pick this up and not really be missing anything. I know that is a constant question, at least in the romance community, and here is a deft way to answer that.

Book Review: Tips for Living by Renée Shafransky

Tips for Living held promise, but the author didn’t hold that promise in her hands tight enough. Continue reading “Book Review: Tips for Living by Renée Shafransky”

Cover Reveal: Beyond Possession by Kit Rocha

I’m a huge fan of Kit Rocha’s Beyond series. It’s incredibly sex positive, feminist, and, of course, so well written! So I’m really excited to help the authors – who consist of the wonderful team of Bree Bridges and Donna Herren – reveal the re-branded cover of novella #5.5, Beyond Possession. Without further ado – here it is!
