It’s a lengthy journey that leads us through a teen’s eyes, and takes us well into her adult life as she is maturing, fearing and facing challenges head on. Harley’s focus is getting out of town [...]

Book Review – About Last Night: A Loveswept Contemporary Romance by Ruthie Knox

July 10, 2012

About Last Night: A Loveswept Contemporary Romance Great fairly quick read, but I’ll admit it took me until 35% to 40% to get really into it. Once I hit 40% I was golden, so if you can get over the initial “reading hump”, the story, especially towards the ends, will steal your heart. If you’ve [...]

Book Review – Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas

April 19, 2012

Sugar Daddy I decided on this one when a certain paranormal book I was anxious to get to wasn’t completely hooking me. I’ve been having a difficult reading week since reading Sylvia Dare’s Bared to You (flitting from one book to the next, not fully connecting with anything), and when this series was brought to [...]

Book Review – The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

March 16, 2012

The Marriage Bargain Fantastic little read when you need something lighter, in between “moodier/darker” books. This one had a bit of everything. Misunderstandings, arrogant behavior, laugh-out-loud funny moments (plenty of those), jealousy… and the much needed constant temptation. The potential romance that constantly hovers right on the edge giving the reader little stomach flips. And [...]
