Review: Completely by Ruthie Knox

Review: Completely by Ruthie Knox Completely Author: Ruthie Knox Reviewer: Nima Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Like the rest of Knox’s New York Trilogy, Completely doesn’t fall into a tidy classification.  More than the others, however, it wants to tip over into the dreaded women’s fiction category. I think Knox has earned it this time, and I didn’t like it as much as the two (three) previous books being Truly, Madly, and the related About Last Night. About Last Night is probably my favorite book Knox has written so it pleases me that she’s chosen to return to the Chamberlain family with the New York Trilogy and not with the focus on characters...

Review: Dirty Deeds By HelenKay Dimon

Review: Dirty Deeds By HelenKay Dimon Dirty Deeds Author: HelenKay Dimon Reviewer: B. Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Cultivating a reputation for having an unflinching ruthlessness towards his competitors, family, and lovers alike has served Alec Drummond well over the years. Forgoing intimacy in favor of sacrificing himself to the recovery and increasing prosperity of his family’s business has likewise suited him fine. Yet, when a problem from his past resurfaces, dragging an annoyingly capable and sexy complication with it, his hard-won empire isn’t the only thing that’s rattled. Gaige Owens has had his fill of paying for the sins of another. Yet, here he is—again—up to his neck in lies and manipulation. Although...

Sunday Snippet: Dirty Deeds by HelenKay Dimon

Sunday Snippet: Dirty Deeds by HelenKay Dimon  About the Book Dirty Deeds   Author:  HelenKay Dimon Publisher:   Ballantine/Loveswept Released:  August 8, 2017 Series:   The Dirty series #1 Genre:  Contemporary Romance (M/M) Snippet: “Alec Drummond.” The name slipped out before Gaige could think to call it back. At thirty-six Alec had been running the company for years, increasing the value and earnings of the family’s dying business well beyond expectations. Despite the public-relations potential of that sort of press, he refused to be interviewed or photographed. That only drove more interest in his direction. But there was another side to the success. People talked about his history in hushed whispers. There were rumors of how he killed the...

Review: Madly by Ruthie Knox

Review: Madly by Ruthie Knox Madly Author: Ruthie Knox Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’ve been anxiously awaiting this book. I loved, loved, loved About Last Night.  While it’s not directly attached to the New York Trilogy, main character Winston Chamberlain is the brother of About Last Night’s Nev Chamberlain.  Winston’s love interest Allie Fredericks is the sister of May Fredericks, from Truly, the first book in this trilogy. Madly is an odd little read. It can be a stand-alone, but is complimented by About Last Night and Truly. Don’t get me wrong, I read it beginning to end in a day because it was compelling.  It just didn’t fall neatly...

Review: Truly by Ruthie Knox

Review: Truly by Ruthie Knox Truly Author: Ruthie Knox Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: “May Fredericks hates New York.  Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back.” May doesn’t just hate New York in Truly, the first book in Ruth Knox’ New York Trilogy.  May hates her body, her life, her indecision, and all the choices that have landed this Wisconsin girl in New York in the first place.  What she hates the most, however, is herself for all the things she imagined it would be when reality turned out to be so much less.  In some cases, just awful.  Every girl wants the love of her...

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson Of Flame and Promise Author: Cecy Robson Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: At first Gikany and Una thought we were getting Taran’s novel when we received Of Flame and Promise.  However, this is a prequel novella that gives Taran’s back-story and sets up what will be her journey in the coming novel. This novella was a breath of fresh air.  We liked seeing behind Taran’s brash bravado into a sweet and vulnerable soul.  We also loved seeing her sisters through her eyes, especially her view of Celia.  Throughout the previous novels, Celia was unsure of herself and was plagued with worry about her relationship...
