October Challenge:  30-Day Book Buying Cleanse

Like most bookworms, I have a teensy tiny huge problem with impulse book hoarding.  See an interesting book on Amazon? Sold.  An afternoon at a bookstore with a hot cup of coffee? Heaven.   Those e-book Freebies?  Mine.   And then one day…WHOLLY SMOKES MY BOOKSHELF IS OUT OF CONTROL!!!  I mean what bookworm ever says that?  Oh…. that’s right.  Me.  (And every other bookworm out there.  Don’t act like you […]

Review:  After We Fall by Melanie Harlow

After we Fall by Melanie Harlow played out like a super sweet Hallmark Movie: socialite city girl is thrown for a loop when her PR firm assigns her to represent an organic farm in small-town Michigan.  I laughed,  I sighed – I even cried happy tears! Margot Lewiston, socialite, and PR wiz retreats to rural Michigan after an altercation with her ex-boyfriend involving baked goods food-fight. Combining work and recovery, […]

Let’s be real – I read a lot of Romance and sweet, swoon-worthy guys are par for the course.  But know what I forget about sometimes?  The awesome heroines that these books are REALLY about (damn alpha males….).

Review: Turbulence by Whitney G

I picked up this book in the mood for over the top drama after noticing the words, fast, quick, light, and fluffy in too many recent blog posts. I needed angst and I needed it quick. Call it a palate cleanser, if you will. Well ask and you shall receive because Whitney G’s Turbulence delivered on the drama us a whole lot more. SPOILER ALERT: The title is a metaphor […]

Review:  Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

Warning:  Hidden Legacy is the third and final gripping book in the Hidden Legacy series.  I highly recommend checking out the reviews for the other two books before diving into my review of “Wildfire” Wildfire was the edge-of-your-seat, high suspense novel that I had been waiting for in this trilogy.  In fact, this book was so good it threw me into a three-week book hangover because I was convinced NOTHING […]

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

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 […]
