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, […]

Review: Compromised by Emmy Curtis

Compromised Author: Emmy Curtis Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: This is my first read of an Emmy Curtis book and Compromised, being #5 in the series, puts me at a disadvantage of any backstory that I may have missed.  That being said, I wish I had some. We come into the story […]

Review: Quantum Night by Robert J. Sawyer

Quantum Night Author: Robert J. Sawyer Reviewer: Nima Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Author Robert Sawyer takes us through a really interesting intellectual exercise in Quantum Night. While it is a fictional story with a beginning, middle, and end, I felt more like I was sitting in a college philosophy class playing “what if” […]

Review: Trapped by Alison Aime..

Review: Trapped by Alison Aimes

Trapped Author: Alison Aimes Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’m going to put this right up front because Alison Aimes’ debut book Trapped actually came with a warning right up front.  I was puzzled by it. It doesn’t read like a trigger warning, instead, sounding more like a promotional blurb.  At the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: The Mistake by Elle Ke..

Posted January 5, 2016 by Nima in contemporary romance, New Adult, Rating A, reviews
Review: The Mistake by Elle Kennedy

The Mistake Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Elle Kennedy did it again.  The Mistake, second installment in her Off-Campus series, is every bit as successful and enjoyable as The Deal.  The Mistake brings us the romance of John Logan, Garrett Graham’s best friend and teammate. Logan has a crush […]

Review: The Deal by Elle Kenne..

Posted December 29, 2015 by Nima in contemporary romance, New Adult, Rating A, reviews
Review: The Deal by Elle Kennedy

The Deal Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Please ignore the cheesy book description—seriously.  The Deal has all the hallmarks of a typical contemporary romance (i.e. insanely fit and beautiful people, wealth, talent, and unreasonably intense sexual chemistry,) but none of the cheese.  This is actually a really good read. […]

Review: Veiled Magic by Debora..

Review: Veiled Magic by Deborah Blake

Veiled Magic Author: Deborah Blake Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Donata Santori is a classic witch, manifesting her power through ritual, spells, and ceremony.  Her specialty, however, is speaking with the recently departed.  In a modern twist, she works for the police department, interviewing murder victims, in an alternate reality where several […]

Review: Against the Ropes by J..

Review: Against the Ropes by Jeanette Murray

Against the Ropes Author: Jeanette Murray Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Against the Ropes is the second book in Murray’s First to Fight series.  It’s also the second book I’ve read with the same title in the last two years.  The first one, a BDSM story, wasn’t much better written than this […]

Review: The Paris Key by Julie..

Review: The Paris Key by Juliet Blackwell

The Paris Key Author: Juliet Blackwell Reviewer: Nima Rating: C What I’m Talking About: The Paris Key is aptly named on several levels. I like a good title. In this case it ties together multiple plot points of locksmithing, love, ghosts of the past, and finding a way through to the future.  Main character Genevieve […]

Review: Breakout by Ann Aguirre

Breakout Author: Ann Aguirre Reviewer:  Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Breakout picks up right where Havoc left off, completing the Dred Chronicles.  The series should be read in order.  New readers of the trilogy will have the luxury of reading the series without the publication gaps the rest of us have experienced.  However, […]

Review: The Highlander’s Bride by Amanda Forester

The Highlander’s Bride Author: Amanda Forester Reviewer: Nima Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: There are something like a million books out there (ok, I’m exaggerating, but there are a lot) that share the title or some variation of The Highlander’s Bride. We like our Scottish heroes and imagining what’s under—or not under—their kilts.  Come […]

Review: All Wound Up by Jaci Burton

All Wound Up Author: Jaci Burton Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Ok, this is book ten.  Burton successfully does what she’s done the entire series.  All Wound Up continues to deliver what her readers have come to love and expect with this series. More of the same isn’t a bad thing, especially […]
