The title of the latest from Erica Spindler is perfect! Read The Other Girl so you too can understand its meaning as the story brings it all together. Continue reading “Book Review: The Other Girl by Erica Spindler”

Audiobook Review: Leaning Into Love by Lane Hayes/Narrated by Seth Clayton

Leaning into Love was first released as part of It Was Always You Anthology; I never read that one, but I love a good friends-to-lovers trope and I generally enjoy Lane Hayes’ works, plus I really enjoy audiobooks. I’ve been going through them left and right lately so I was excited to listen to this one. Continue reading “Audiobook Review: Leaning Into Love by Lane Hayes/Narrated by Seth Clayton”

Book Review: Seeing Red by Sandra Brown

It’s very rare that a book keeps me up late reading and if it does then it’s definitely a good one. That was the case with Seeing Red by Sandra Brown. As the clock ticked closer to 12AM, I couldn’t stop until I knew everything. Continue reading “Book Review: Seeing Red by Sandra Brown”

Book Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

The Royals trilogy by Erin Watt burst on the YA scene last year with a bang and pretty much everyone I know who read them became obsessed with them – me included.  They’re written by the writing duo of Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick, both of whom I adore and have huge fan followings in their own rights so together they were bound to be a huge hit. The tag line of the books were ‘these Royals will ruin you’. And holy crap they DID. Fallen Heir is the follow up to these and THEY DID IT AGAIN. **No spoiler ahead.** Continue reading “Book Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt”

Book Review: I Know a Secret by Tess Gerritsen

Welcome back Rizzoli and Isles. It’s been awhile and I missed you!  Continue reading “Book Review: I Know a Secret by Tess Gerritsen”

Book Review: Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai

I was lucky enough to meet Alisha Rai at RT in May, see her speak on an amazing panel, AND receive an ARC of Hate to Want You. Plus when I told her how much a good friend identified with her characters she gave me an ARC for her. I went there already a fan but left knowing that she was firmly on my auto-buy list. Continue reading “Book Review: Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai”

Spotlight: Permanent Ink by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn

As anyone who has read any of my reviews over the last few months knows – I love Avon Gale! She writes amazing hockey m/m books, co-wrote a great m/m book with Roan Parrish just last month, and now is co-writing with Piper Vaughn here. I hadn’t read any Piper Vaughn books before but this features a LOT of tattooing and art and those are things I love so YES please! Continue reading “Spotlight: Permanent Ink by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn”

Book Review: Best Intentions by Erika Raskin

Marti Trailor―social worker, mother of three, wife of a successful obstetrician, daughter of a Congressman―is ready to go back to work. She’s thrilled when the perfect opportunity falls in her lap. Marti quickly begins to feel like she is making a difference in the lives of her clients. Soon, though, she finds herself caught up in the dark side of the medical center.
