Review:  The Scotch King by Penelope Sky

I typically shy away from darker romances but decided to read The Scotch King by Penelope Sky on a recommendation.  Fortunately, two things jumped out from the Kindle sample: 1) the book was intense and gritty and 2) the main character was ruthless but definitely had room for a soft side.  I went ahead with the read after realizing The Scotch King was unlikely to traumatize me. Be warned there […]

Review:  Ashes (Dark in You #3) by Suzanne Wright

The greatness continues in Ashes, book three of Suzanne Wrights Dark in You series!  Starting mid-series would be difficult, but I highly recommend checking-out this Paranormal Romance series centered on demons living-it-up in a thrill-seeking, underground version of Las Vegas.  Each book focuses on Harper and Knox’s evolving relationship. These two are predestined “anchors” who must pair-up to counter-balance one another’s magical powers. Where Ashes (Dark in You #3) Takes Us: […]

Review:  The Hunt (Devil’s Isle #3) by Chloe Neill

I picked-up The Hunt, cautiously optimistic after finding the first two books in the series to be just “okay” and WOWZERS!! The third book in Chloe Neill’s Devil’s Isle series was the best installment to date!  Full of adventure and mystery (with a dash of romance), this book flew by in no time at all.   Here’s what went down: Claire Connolly is on the run after revealing her forbidden […]

Review:  Steal the Light by Lexi Blake

Where has this series been and I’m the only one who didn’t know about it until now?!?  Steal the Light,  the first book in Lexi Blakes Theives series was a funny, dangerous, and slightly angsty Urban Fantasy Read.  I was left wanting more (in the best possible way) and I fully intend on devouring the rest of this series as fast as humanly possible. The daughter of a legendary thief, […]

Review:  Dirty Filthy Rich Love by Laurelin Paige

Two Warnings Before You Go Forward: This is the second book in a duet. I recommend heading to the review of “Dirty Filthy Rich Men” unless you want major spoilers. Triggers!  Same as Dirty Filthy Rich Men, there are recurring discussions of the main character being a victim of an attempted sexual assault. Dirty Filthy Rich Men picks-up pretty quickly from where Dirty Filthy Rich Love left off: Sabrina has […]
