Rating: ♥♥♥.5

If you have not the read the first four books, do yourself a favour and start there because you will not get the fully appreciate this book and you went straight into this one. I must say, I was super giddy when I realised that this was Travis’ story after Jodie…

BOOK REVIEW: Sweet Retribution

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

You already know how much I’ve been looking forward to this conclusion of the clusterfuck that is Abby and Kai’s life. To say there were a lot of bombs dropped in this book would be an understatement and not only obvious but not surprising at all…

BOOK REVIEW: Atone

Rating:♥♥

I’m always on the lookout for stories that are well written and very smutty smut. Finding one that has an interesting storyline that is unsettling, layered and has pantie-soaking scenes always gets me all warm and fuzzy inside…

BOOK REVIEW: Serenading Heartbreak

Rating:♥.75

I love a love triangle, I mean who doesn’t? Okay…honestly I love them and hate them in equal measure. They often infuriate me because I hate indecisiveness; but you can’t deny the curiousness of how they’re going to navigate their shit. ..

Rating:♥♥

BOOK REVIEW: Reveal

Rating:♥♥

It’s very rare that I read book series where I enjoy book two better than the first. Don’t get me wrong, I liked Resist but I loved Reveal a lot more. There was so much deception, lies, drama and redemption as Ryker tries to salvage the clusterfuck from the end of resist…

BOOK REVIEW: Holding on to Forever

Rating:♥♥

It is becoming apparent to me that rich, elite and bully type of books are becoming more and more popular. Or maybe I just have the propensity to be drawn to them. Either way, because it seems there are so many of them, it’s very hard to find one with a vastly different story from the ones I previously read…

BOOK REVIEW: Holding on to Forever

Rating:♥♥

I’m always on the lookout for a book that is both well written and romantic. One that touches the deep level of my feels as it is unsettling, one that has me screaming at the characters with frustration while “oohing and awwing” at the same time.

BOOK REVIEW: Madman’s Method

Rating:♥♥

I have no idea what I just read. All I know is I loved every minute of it. I don’t know why I’ve never read this author’s books before but am I glad I finally woke up to it. I mean this book is so confusing. And I don’t mean that in the what-the-hell-did-she-bother-with-this-shit-way.

BOOK REVIEW: One Shameless Night

Rating:♥.5

I wasn’t particularly sure what to expect when I went into this; maybe a typical soppy HEA. But I loved it more than I thought I would. It was light (by my standards anyway), very funny and the characters had some depth about them. It’s my first book by this author but will definitely not be the last.

BOOK REVIEW: Twisted Betrayal

Rating:♥♥♥++++

I honestly can’t think of any series of books where I enjoyed the second book just as much, if not more than the initial book. I didn’t think it could get any better than book one. But Siobhan was NOT fucking around when she wrote this.

BOOK REVIEW: If You Dare

Rating:♥♥.5

If you follow me on IG, you’ll remember that a few weeks ago I posted a list of authors that I thought needed prayers because I’m convinced they are smoking something that’s messing with their brains for them to be able to write the bat-shit crazy shit they write. I would like to take this opportunity to add Shantel Tessier to that list…

BOOK REVIEW: Always You

Rating:♥♥

Two words for you…Must. Read. I absolutely loved this book and binged on it especially as I was coming down from a high from reading Always. But we pick up 15 years later to now 18 year old Penny who we left off as an adorable three year old…

BOOK REVIEW: Broken Knight

Rating:♥♥

I’ve read quite a few books by Ms Shen, if not most and I have to say this is probably the most intense of her writing I’ve ever read. But I have to admit, I still remain partial to Vicious. I had been anticipating this book like you wouldn’t believe. As soon as it hit my kindle I binged on it like Ms Shen was cutting me a check…

BOOK REVIEW: Always

Rating:♥♥♥

First all Linday Becs, did you really have to end this book like that? Couldn’t you just let them have a happy ending?I have read a lot of books in my time and I have never and I mean ever cried when reading a book. But let me tell you I balled my eyes out reading this one. By the end of it, my heart was sore…

BOOK REVIEW: Dangerous Desires

We pick up where we left off with Naz and Eva with that cliffy in dangerous beauty. I must admit I am having a bit of a struggle reviewing this book because although I enjoyed seeing Eva and Naz swooning over each other.

BOOK REVIEW: Killer Love

Rating:♥♥

This is my first read by Tabatha and I love mafia romances so much I very rarely think twice about reading such books once I read the blurb. But I must admit I am getting a bit reluctant to read them nowadays as they are more and more failing to punch me in the chest the way I expect mafia romance to do. I was not disappointed with this one at all.

BOOK REVIEW: The Obsession

Rating:♥♥

Okay, y’all know how much I’ve been looking forward to this book ever since Royce made that deal with the devil in The Initiation. So obviously as soon as I got the obsession in my kindle I was on it. I loved it but the whole time I was reading it I had my “what the fuck” face on. I must admit I was a bit nervous about reading it because the Initiation was fantastic. I mean how do you out-fantastic fantastic?Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Redemption

Rating:♥♥.5

You know that feeling when you pick up a book from an author that is new to you and you soon realise you’ve stumbled upon a goldmine? Yes people, I’m walking on cloud nine right now. I absolutely loved this book. I am slowly becoming very reluctant to read mafia romances now as I very rarely find something that blows my mind. I…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Retribution

Rating:♥♥♥+

*chilllllllld* Do yourself a favour and read this book. This shit right here, is some next level shit. I’m ashamed to say Youngblood series is my first encounter with Monique Orgeron.

BOOK REVIEW: It’s Not Home Without You

Rating:♥♥.5

*sigh* this is one of the best feel good books I’ve read in a long time. Obviously it’s not hard to find a second chance romance to read. But finding one that takes your breath away and has you wrapped around its fingers from page one; now those are few and far between…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Million Dollar Marriage

I am having a really had time writing this review. Normally when I see Ms Bromberg’s books I know I’m going to be fan-girling the heck out over the book. I have mixed emotions over this one…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Defying Gravity

Rating:

A second chance romance set in the treacherous life of the NBA and brought to life by KK Allen was everything I needed in a swoony, heart-string tugging romance; suspense and all consuming. I found myself enthralled by the story from page one…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Standstill

Rating:

I always look forward to reading books from authors I’ve not dabbled with before. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. I’m finding that my taste lately is bordering on preferring dirty darker romances but every now and then I need a bit of sugar-loving…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Reaper

We’re back in Boston with our MacKenna syndicate boys. But this time we’re getting acquainted with Ronan “the reaper” Fitzpatrick. When it comes to romance novels, I’m starting to find myself drawn to the darker mafia type lately…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Crow

Rating:

I really don’t know how this book has existed for 3 years and I’ve only just found out about it. But thanks to Instagram and my bookstagram sisterhood, I finally came into the light and was introduced to this deliciousness. Mafia romances are quickly becoming my jam and I can always count on them for a mind boggling read. I was not disappointed…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: The Judgment of Paris

Rating:

As soon as I put down The Fall of Troy I jumped on this with the quickness of Usain Bolt. Make sense? Never mind. I was already on a high from that cliff-hanger, so I wasted no time at all.

We pick up from where we left Leo and Troy but this time we’re in Paris.Read More

First I’d like to take this opportunity to tell all my social media “friends” who read this book before me, YOU SUCK FOR NOT TELLING ME ABOUT THIS BOOK SOONER!! SHAME ON YOU. YOU’RE TERRIBLE FRIENDS. And I hope you suffered greatly with anticipation while waiting for the next book…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Teardrop Shot

Rating:

Whenever I pick up Tijan’s books I expect nothing but good times. I must admit I haven’t read as many of her books as I’d like to (yes I’m ashamed). The ones that I’ve read, she always brought it. But I’m going to be real here for a hot second.This book was different for me…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: The Score

Rating:

The score is book 2 of the Massey Security Duet which continues Cara and Ford’s story from book one The Assignment. You definitely have you read book one as this is a continuation of that book.

This might be yet another book that everybody loves and I’m just like:Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Cruel Intentions

Rating:

This book was so good it took me a minute to finally sit down and review it. I’m a newbie to all things Siobhan Davis (Yes I know, I know I suck) but better late than never and all that. When it comes to romance novels, y’all know I’m into that grown folk kinda loving, so often I steer clear of anything that says high school in it. Why?…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Rafferty’s Rules

Rating:

Very rarely do I come across a book that ends up with me on a mission to read every book that author has ever written. As you all know by now (well you should) forbidden romances are my drug of choice; the dirtier the better. But sometimes I want to give my lady parts a break and just want a swoon-worthy and sweet story to read.And now Donna Alam is my go-to because she perfectly blends the sweet …Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Broken With You

Rating:

I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t read the previous book in the series and that’s my bad. So take that into consideration when reading my review. But I just didn’t connect at all with the story. Writing this review is killing me because I love J Kenner…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: The Man I Need

Rating:

I have been waiting for this book with bated breath the minute I finished The Man I Can’t Have on that freaking cliff-hanger. This is book two of the Ward Duet so it’s an absolute must that you read book one first to get Gabby and Marcel’s full story. We last left Gabby in a bit of a pickle following a weekend of her life with the great Marcel. So you know as soon as that ARC hit my kindle I was all over it like white on rice…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: The Mafia and His Obsession Part 2

Rating:

Oh my gosh

I’ve been breathlessly waiting for this book since that cliff-hanger in the last book. My reviews don’t contained spoilers so I thought I’d have a little fun with this one and present it as if I’m having a conversation with Lylah James. You’re lucky I finished it this way…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: Written With Regret

Rating:

It is very rare that I come across an author that has me wondering what rock I’ve been living under that I’ve not read their books yet. This is one of those times. This is my first book by Aly Martinez (yes I know, as I said I’ve been under a rock). Even rarer does a book come along that exquisitely combines a love story and tragedy as well as this one did…Read More

BOOK REVIEW: The Man I Can’t Have

Rating:

You know sometimes you meet someone and you just don’t like them. They haven’t done anything to you or you’ve had very little interaction with them to warrant your hatred towards them? Well 2 pages into this book and I already hated Kyle. By the end of the book I was ready to crawl into the pages and struggle his ass. Oh my Lord. What a dick! What an absolute penis….Read More
