Review: Tycoon by Katy Evans

I loved Katy Evan’s Manwhore series and enjoyed Real, but I’ll admit that I wasn’t entirely blown away by Tycoon.  The second chance romance with a “falling for your boss” twist happens often and this version just didn’t stand out as overly special.  However, those who ship those tropes could be in for a delight!   The daughter of now deceased department store moguls,  Bryn Kelly is a struggling entrepreneur, […]

Review:  Scotch Queen by Penelope Sky

Two Warnings Before Reading Forward: “The Scotch Queen” is the second book in a Trilogy, so unless you want major spoilers – head over to the review of the first book, “The Scotch King.”   Triggers!  Same as “The Scotch King,” there are recurring themes of kidnapping, abuse, and threatened sexual assault Penelope Sky’s The Scotch Queen begins shortly after the events of The Scotch King.  London is still a […]

Bookish Confession:  Giving Up on Your Goodreads Goal

Okay, let’s face it:  it’s mid-November and I’ve officially called it quits on my 100 book Goodread’s goal for the year.  I’m actually not far off – maybe only about 2 books behind schedule on any given week, but I’m suddenly unmotivated.  So know what I did? (Oh you so KNEW that one was coming) I can’t be the only one wanting to throw in the towel on THAT NUMBER. […]

Review:  The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey

A strong New Adult romance with a dash of Cinderella story thrown in, R.S. Grey’s The Fortunate Ones was a fun and enjoyable romance about a wanderlust-stricken Cabana Girl and a billionaire with a heart of gold. Gut-wrenching at times, The Fortunate Ones delivered a light-hearted, steamy read that also touched on deeper themes of finding love at the wrong time and staying true to your life’s goals. Brooke Davenport is […]

Review:  Fantastical by Kristen Ashley

If WIldest Dreams was Frozen and Golden Dynasty was Game of Thrones, then Fantastical was Disney’s Enchanted.  Light, fluffy, and fast, Fantastical is the third book in Fantasyland series and introduces us to a whole new realm of Kirsten Ashley’s parallel universe. Fantastical begins with our heroine, Cora Goode waking-up in a Beauty and the Beast, Disney-esque world complete with elaborate furniture, talking birds, and a sister who sits on […]

Review:  Breaking Hollywood by Samantha Towle

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: Samantha Towle is one of my go-to, automatic one-click contemporary romance authors. I’ve spent many a night staying-up waayy too late enjoying one more chapter.  Her latest book, Breaking Hollywood, fell along the same lines and I devoured this quick read in one sitting.  Note:  Breaking Hollywood is a spin-off of Wardrobe Malfunction. However, this book can easily be […]
