Review: Taming Lily by Monica Murphy

Review: Taming Lily by Monica Murphy Taming Lily Author: Monica Murphy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Shhh. I may have fangirled a little when I met Monica Murphy at RAGT in June. Don’t judge (BTW, she’s SUPER nice and chatted with me about this series!). Ms. Murphy’s Fowler Sisters series is at the top of my ‘ya gotta read this’ list for anyone that reads contemporary romance with a little down-n-dirty. And I was not disappointed with the third book in the series, Taming Lily. I think it’s my favorite of the three, to be honest. To say Taming Lily was a rollercoaster would be an understatement. I was riveted to this...

Review: Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy

Review: Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy Stealing Rose Author: Monica Murphy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: These Fowler Sisters books are like chocolate—always got room for more. Stealing Rose, the second title in the trilogy, is about the baby sister, Rose, and the thief that stole her heart, Caden. We also get to see more of Violet and Ryder, as well as Lily. For the record, I’m quickly approaching fifty. But reading Stealing Rose really took me back to my college days, a couple decades ago. Okay. Maybe I wasn’t quite as gregarious as Rose (Stop laughing. Really.). But there are a bazillion ways I did connect with her in this story....

Review + Giveaway: Owning Violet by Monica Murphy

Review + Giveaway: Owning Violet by Monica Murphy Owning Violet Author: Monica Murphy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’ve been reading a lot of contemporary romance lately. It’s interesting that the subgenre still holds interest for me, as I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every trope out there. I had to fight for moments to read the first title in Monica Murphy’s new Fowler Sisters series, Owning Violet. Stolen moments on my lunch break, at the grocery store while waiting in line, and while waiting for Youngest to be released from wrestling practice. And then, I binged. I gorged myself on Violet and Ryder’s story for an afternoon. And I don’t regret a single minute....
