Review: Dancing with the Viper by Amy Beatty

Dancing with the Viper Author: Amy Beatty Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Dancing with the Viper took me by surprise.  Honestly, from the ambiguous cover art and title, I was expecting something a little campy like Robyn Peterman’s books.  That was reinforced when the book starts with main character Hanna Bradley taking […]

Review: The Breakup by Erin McCarthy

The Breakup Author: Erin McCarthy Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The Breakup didn’t feel so much like a second book as it felt like, as Paul Harvey would say, “the rest of the story.”  The Hook Up, book one in the Jordan Brothers series followed Cain Jordan and Sophie Bigelow and there […]
