Review: A Sure Thing by Marie Harte

Review: A Sure Thing by Marie Harte A Sure Thing Author: Marie Harte Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: A Sure Thing is two stories.  One is the love story of medically retired Major Landon Donnigan and psychologist Ava Rosenthal. The other, unlike most erotic contemporary romances, is the story of their families.  In this instance, they are not just periphery characters that come and go to support the main storyline.  They are loud, messy, and interject themselves all over the place. They become integral to the way in which the love story develops. And like most families, they have issues. The Donnigans series is preceded by the four book series The McCauley’s—their cousins. ...

Review: A Very Jaguar Christmas by Terry Spear

Review: A Very Jaguar Christmas by Terry Spear A Very Jaguar Christmas Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Coming to terms with the death of her boyfriend when he was on a mission to rescue a young jaguar shifter was difficult for Demetria MacFarlane.

But, when she and her sexy JAG agent partner are charged with returning a “lupus garou” pup to his family, their world is turned completely upside down. Friendship kept Everett Anderson from pursuing the sexy jaguar Guardian he’d fallen for once she started dating his best friend, and...

Review: Her Rogue Alpha by Paige Tyler

Review: Her Rogue Alpha by Paige Tyler Her Rogue Alpha Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: DNF / C What We’re Talking About: This is an odd review to write since only Una finished the book, but we do that we were disappointed with Layla and Jayson’s story. Una finished the novel, but found herself feeling let down.  The connection between Layla and Jayson was forged early in the series.  Their story is one we have waited for: a shifter who just joined the X-Ops and her wounded soldier.  However, Jayson is emotionally abusive.  The abuse is substantial enough to make us feel that there should possibly be trigger warnings for this book.  In...

Review: Missed Connections by Tamara Mataya

Review: Missed Connections by Tamara Mataya Missed Connections Author: Tamara Mataya Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: The premise promised by the title Missed Connections is a fun one.  Two people shared a connection at some point in real life, but failed for any number of reasons to act on it.  Through the imaginary Missed Connections website featured in Mataya’s first installment of her Summer Love series, they can reach out and maybe have a second chance at a love.  Apparently that’s a real thing on Craigslist and several dedicated websites like Blew My Chance and I Saw You.  This is main character Sarah’s guilty pleasure while she searches for a new job...

Review: To Love a Wolf by Paige Tyler

Review: To Love a Wolf by Paige Tyler To Love a Wolf Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: To Love a Wolf is another satisfying installment in the SWAT series.  Gikany and Una have liked Cooper since we met him in the first novel, Hungry Like the Wolf.  We were eager to see him meet his “One” and we were not disappointed, although the mythology took an unexpected turn. Cooper and Everly’s story is a great change of pace from the previous stories.  Shortly after meeting Everly, Cooper rescues her (and a number of other victims) from bank robbers.  However, this is an isolated event, the overarching plot is the...

Review: Every Bride Has Her Day by Lynnette Austin

Review: Every Bride Has Her Day by Lynnette Austin Every Bride Has Her Day Author: Lynnette Austin Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I was a bit hesitant to return to Savannah Georgia with Ms. Austin because I felt the first novel in the Magnolia Bride series was just OK. But Every Bride Has Her Day proved to be a lovely surprise. Every Bride Has Her Day is fun and quirky like Cricket, with just the right touch of sexy and smoldering like Sam. Who knew throwing a Yankee into the south could be so much fun? The chemistry is felt as soon as Cricket bangs on Sam’s front door and is carried out until the...

Since returning to the Silver Town pack with his brothers, he’s been content to do whatever needed to be done, work as a park ranger, and keep to himself.

And Eric is surprisingly fine with the fact that his world has just been turned upside down. Being...

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler Her Fierce Warrior Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Overall Gikany and Una have liked the X-Ops series, although, the latest offering, Her Fierce Warrior, fell a bit flat for us.  The plight of stopping the evil doctors was gripping, but the romantic storyline between Minka and Angelo was lacking. Over the course of the previous three books, the Department of Covert Operations (DCO) team has been trying to uncover the mole in their organization, find the evil doctors making the hybrids, all while doing their normal jobs.  We liked that this novel touched base with some previous couples, especially Landon and...

Review: You and Only You by Sharon Sala

Review: You and Only You by Sharon Sala You and Only You Author: Sharon Sala Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- You and Only You was originally published as the stand-alone book, Curl Up and Dye, released in February 2014. It appears that Sala is going forward with this as the first book in her new Blessings, Georgia series, named after the small town where her characters call home.  Unfortunately after a weak opening paragraph, the story really doesn’t get much better.  It is filled with clichés, repetition, and caricatures. LilyAnn Bronte lost her high school sweetheart and then lost herself. Everyone around her treats her like a child and this goes on for y-e-a-r-s. In all that time,...

Review: SEAL Wolf In Too Deep by Terry Spear

Review: SEAL Wolf In Too Deep by Terry Spear SEAL Wolf In Too Deep Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Allan Rappaport knows the importance of rules. As part of a close-knit wolf pack, he learned early on the need to keep their kind a secret from humans that would hunt them down and destroy them. Being a Navy SEAL taught him how to get the job done in the face danger and keep his cool under pressure. But, nothing could have prepared him for the beautiful, spirited woman he can’t stop thinking about. Leaving her troubled upbringing behind, Debbie Renaud found happiness and purpose as a diver for the police department in...
