Sunday Synopsis #5:  What is this “Fall” you speak of?

Linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer – a weekly meme where fellow book lovers post updates on life, blog happenings, and their recent book hauls.   Fall is here but Minnesota missed the memo!  We’ve been sweating through 90+ degree days all week and most of the flowers in my garden are going through a late bloom and my herb garden is […]

Review: The Room Mate by Kendall Ryan

The Room Mate by Kendall Ryan was the perfect amount of romantic fluff for a crazy week.  Not too taxing, this book delivered a light, sweet, and steamy take on the roommates to lovers trope. Soon-to-be Dr. Cannon Roth – a med student on his ON GYN rotation – has sworn to a temporary ban on dating.  His latest one-night stand went a little well crazy and trashed his place […]

Review:  Under Her by Samantha Towle

Samantha Young is one of those author’s whose books I instantly devour and Under Her wasn’t much different.  Slightly fluffier than other works, Under Her was a steamy romance read with a frantically funny hero and impressively smart heroine.   Wilder Cross is set to inherit his family’s business, Under Her Lingerie, when his parents reveal  they’ve hired a co-CEO to infuse a “woman’s touch.”  Unfortunately, they’ve hired Morgan Stickford, […]

It’s mid-September, which means shorter days, brisk weather, and Oktoberfest season in the midwest! Both my husband and I come from midwest towns with strong German influences, so we spend most of the month traveling to different […]

Review:  Not Pants Required by Kim Karr

For the past year, Kim Karr’s No Pants Required has popped up on my “books you might like” on Amazon.  And for the past year, I clicked into the book’s website to learn more… only to turn away for something newer and shinier. I’m not sure why it took so long to break down, buy the book, and read it as it was right up my alley:  a funny, somewhat […]

August Wrap-Up:  What a Whirlwind!

Linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  The Sunday Post is a weekly feature where fellow book lovers post updates on life, blog happenings, and their recent book hauls. What a month!  August was full of trips up-north, a girls weekend to Napa, and a few trips to the Minnesota State Fair.  Oh, plus I started a new job!  I read seven books […]
