Review: Breaking the Billionaire’s Rules by Annika Martin

Breaking the Billionaire’s Rules Author: Annika Martin Reviewer: Jen Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I can always count on Annika Martin to entertain me with likable, crazy characters and an outrageous story.

Review: The Good Ones by Jenn McKinlay

The Good Ones Author: Jenn McKinlay Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: The Good Ones is cute, but it’s definitely “fantasy.” I lost count of the number of times I rolled my eyes over the things which I had to suspend my disbelief.  Maisy Kelly, accomplished professor of English literature in North Carolina, […]

Review: Flare Up by Shannon Stacey

Flare Up Author: Shannon Stacey Reviewer: Jen Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Shannon Stacey is always one of my go-to authors for small-town, family-centric, feel-good romances.
