Review: The Exposure by Tara Sue Me

Review: The Exposure by Tara Sue Me The Exposure Author: Tara Sue Me Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Seriously. Pulling up a book file for Tara Sue Me’s Submissive series is always a lot of joy for me. Sometimes, I get all rant-y about how people don’t do BDSM correctly, and the Dom is all risky and the sub is like a puddle of goo. Not so with Ms. Sue Me’s titles in this series. I was super excited to read The Exposure because Meagan is a switch—she will either Top or bottom depending. And, because I wanted to read Meagan’s story. Pairing her with Luke was inspired. The glimpses we’ve had of...

Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh Wild Embrace Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Wild Embrace is a collection of short stories and novellas that fall at different points of the known Psy-Changeling timeline, most covering one specific point, with “Dorian” spanning several years from his youth to adulthood.

She is from a small village with a traditional upbringing, resulting in a...

Review: Can I See You Again? by Allison Morgan

Review: Can I See You Again? by Allison Morgan Can I See You Again? Author: Allison Morgan Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Can I See You Again? is a good book, but it fell short of the potential to be more. Bree Caxton is a matchmaker based in La Jolla, California.  Her expertise is in reading body language and a wistful love of falling in love. I can identify.  This is why I like contemporary romance.  Bree is good at her job, so good that she has a 98% success rate.  Business is steady and she has a debut book ready to hit the stands.  Life is good.  Her boyfriend of four years, attorney Sean...

Review: The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie

Review: The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie The Summer Bride Author: Anne Gracie Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I have loved the Chance Sisters series since I read The Autumn Bride in 2013, but of all the sisters, Daisy has always been my favorite. Her spunky candor, hard-working nature, tender heart, and lioness-like protectiveness of those she loves won me over the moment I met her. The Summer Bride did not disappoint in my memories of Daisy or in my getting to know Finn, who was able to meet Miss Daisy tit-for-tat and balanced her humor while teaching her that trust is not always misplaced and it’s never a mistake to love someone....

Review + Excerpt: Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Review + Excerpt: Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh Allegiance of Honor Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B/B- What I’m Talking About: Nalini Singh creates a sweeping look at her entire Psy-Changeling cast of characters and previous storylines with Allegiance of Honor. Bold in scope and content, the book picks up the overarching storyline of the series, focusing on the downfall of Silence and what it means to the three species inhabiting Earth. While there are no new romances or characters featured this time around, the story continues forward the series while giving fans a look at each character and how they’ve fared since introduction. Within the book, there are a handful of primary stories: 1....

Review: Wedding Girl by Stacey Ballis

Review: Wedding Girl by Stacey Ballis Wedding Girl Author: Stacey Ballis Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Wedding Girl is a delightfully indulgent book. All in one, it’s an ode to comfort food, old black and white movies, specifically The Little Shop Around the Corner, and family. The Little Shop Around the Corner (1940) was remade into the 1998 blockbuster You’ve Got Mail and Wedding Girl gives nods to them both. It was a slow seduction, but Ballis totally won me over. The story begins with a personal disaster.  Sophie Bernstein, the child of nurturing, successful hippies (think of Sandra Bullock’s parents in Two Weeks Notice,) has her perfect life mapped out with...

Review: Dominated by Maya Banks + #Giveaway

Review: Dominated by Maya Banks + #Giveaway Dominated Author: Maya Banks Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: I’m not sure what it is, but Dominated felt really slow to me until about the 70% mark. I was a bit meh about the characters, and annoyed by the characterization. I think I’m going to chalk it up, however, to the fact that I just wasn’t in the mood for this type of book. Evangeline started of as a pretty whiny character. She irritated my soul when she was with or around Drake, to be honest. The glimpses of her with Maddox and Silas balanced it out for me, a little though. I’ve never been a...

Review: Fly with Me by Chanel Cleeton

Review: Fly with Me by Chanel Cleeton Fly with Me Author: Chanel Cleeton Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Fly With Me, book one in the Wild Aces series, is a lot of what you expect just looking at the cover:  super-hot, confident, smart, fighter pilot finds the love of his life and asks her to risk her heart so they can fly away happily ever after.  Indeed, this is how the story starts.  U.S. Air Force fighter pilot and weapons specialist Noah Miller is blowing off steam with his squad members at a Las Vegas night club.  Florida native and successful clothing boutique owner, which means she has the right outfit for every...

Review: The Obsession by Nora Roberts

Review: The Obsession by Nora Roberts The Obsession Author: Nora Roberts Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Nora Roberts is a prolific writer.  As such, she is known for a certain predictability, if not being formulaic in her writing style.  Her ardent fans like this about her style.  I have enjoyed a few of her books over the years, but haven’t necessarily sought them out.  The Obsession was not at all what I expected from Roberts.  Like so many of her other books, The Obsession was not just a story of an empowered woman looking to build a new life after some kind of insert-male-oppression-here and stumbles upon a trust-worthy love. While it...

Review: Fight to the Finish by Jeanette Murray

Review: Fight to the Finish by Jeanette Murray Fight to the Finish Author: Jeanette Murray Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Fight to the Finish takes us back into the competitive boxing world of the U.S. Marines.  As book three in Jeanette Murray’s First to Fight series, the characters and environments are already well-established.  It could definitely stand alone, but is a better read for the books that came before it, especially as the characters react and interact.  Fight to the Finish focuses on the romance of JAG officer Graham and team yoga instructor Kara. Kara was a bit of a head scratcher for me.  As the mother of a child with significant allergies myself,...
