Review: Total Bravery by Piper Drake

Review: Total Bravery by Piper Drake Total Bravery Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Total Bravery is latest novel in Ms. Drake’s True Heroes series.  After it seemed like all of the men of Hope’s Crossing found their HEAs, we wondered what was next in this series.  We liked this segue into a related group. We are not fans of instant love in the contemporary romance genre.  This is a big reason why the romantic thread in Total Bravery is one of our favorites in this series.  We loved how patient and honest Raul is with Mali.  Although he is strongly attracted to Mali in a way...

Review: Loving the Secret Billionaire by Adriana Anders

Review: Loving the Secret Billionaire by Adriana Anders Loving the Secret Billionaire Author: Adriana Anders Reviewer: B. Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Loving the Secret Billionaire is actually a retelling of the same novella previously published as “Grassroots” in the Rogue Desire anthology earlier this year. Per the author’s notes, after its initial release, she realized that there was more to Zack than was originally apparent, thereby opening the door to a richer, more thorough version of Veronica’s story. While I wasn’t able to finish the original prior to this review myself, I think that the addition of Zack’s perspective did enhance the part of Loving the Secret Billionaire that I read.  The nature of the...
