Review: Rock Wedding by Nalini Singh

Review: Rock Wedding by Nalini Singh Rock Wedding Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Nalini Singh wraps up her wonderful Rock Kiss series with Abe and Sarah’s story. Abe and Sarah share a tragic history that was chronicled briefly over the course of the series, so ending with their reunion is a fitting way to cap it off. The couple was married, but it was a very one-sided love. Abe was too wrapped up in the sorrow of his baby sister’s death, staying closed off and afraid to love. Turning to drugs and alcohol to bury his pain, his coldness eventually drove Sarah away, and into the arms of...

Review: Romanced by a SEAL by Cat Johnson Romanced by a SEAL Author: Cat Johnson Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Having watched Jon and Ali fall for one another in the first Hot SEALs book, Night with a SEAL, I was excited to read their follow up story in Romanced by a SEAL.

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Big Vamp on Campus by Molly Harper

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Big Vamp on Campus by Molly Harper Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook review: Big Vamp on Campus Author: Molly Harper Narrator: Amanda Ronconi Audio Speed: 1.25x Series: Half-Moon Hollow #5.5 Genre: Paranormal Romance Source: Purchased Big Vamp on Campus is a fun “slice of life” with a side of growing pains. We get to see how vampire baddie Ophelia Lambert is dealing with being cut off from her precious Council. It’s definitely not the best place to start the series, although I think it can be enjoyed by a newbie as a standalone short. However, to understand the full impact of Ophelia’s banishment, one really needs to see her when she was at...
