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: Earl to the Rescue by Jane Ashford

Earl to the Rescue Author: Jane Ashford Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: I wanted to like Earl to the Rescue. The storyline had a ton of potential, but it just never lived up to it.
