Playing the Millionaire by Sandi Lynn

I was in the mood for something a little off the wall and different from my typical tropes after devouring two fantasy novels …. Boy did I find it with Playing the Millionaire! Our heroine, Kate Harper, is a con artist jumping from sugar daddy to sugar daddy in scoring gifts to liquidate for cash.  Unfortunately, her luck catches up with her when she crosses paths with Gabriel Quinn – the […]

Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashl..

Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley

Wildest Dreams was a fun fantasy book that read like a mash-up of Disney’s Frozen and Beauty and the Beast – with DRAGONS and ELVES!  (Note: Wildest Dreams was published in 2011, long before Frozen’s release. Maybe Kristen Ashley should contact Disney regarding some legal-ish stuff? Hmmmm….) Finnie is Elsa from Frozen, complete with an Arendelle-esque Winter Kingdom Finnie Wild travels to a parallel universe – where everyone has a twin – to find […]

Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas

I adored Annabelle.  I admired Lillian.  But Evie?  Now SHE was the Wallflower I’ve been waiting for.  (And yes… I realize this book came out 10+ years ago but there was a two-month wait at the Library).  This story was everything I hoped for (and more!) with a hero and heroine that had me subsequently laughing and screaming at my kindle.  And the dialogue? SWOON!   “Don’t remove a single […]

Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

An Honest Moment on Why It’s Taken Me So Long to Read This Series:  Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series is one of my go-to rereads (maybe six times for some of the Cat and Bones novels?).  I shied away from the spin-off series, Night Prince, for five years because I typecast Vlad as the eccentric, best-friend type who could also turn you into crispy fried chicken faster than you could say […]

Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren

I was looking forward to getting to know our two favorite Comic Loving Nerds after the first two Wild Seasons stories (Mia & Ansel and Harlow and Finn).  This was a slow-burn love story in the making with the “Slow” happening in Books 1 & 2 and the “Burn” starting immediately in the first few chapters of Dark Wild Night.  I’m a huge Christina Lauren fan and this book delivers […]

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

 A Court of Wings and Ruin was one of my top 5 most anticipated reads of the year.  I laughed, I sobbed cried, and now I’m reflecting.  I knew what I was getting into when I started: Feyre had planted herself as a spy within the Spring Court in advance of war with Hybern.  This was originally a trilogy, so my only questions were who was going to die and […]

Mister Money Bags by Vi Keelan..

Mister Money Bags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

My first book hangover for the year…. Oh how I’ve missed this feeling! Mister Money Bags had the potential to be extremely cliched and worn story.  I  expected a romance novel where 95% of the story is “How to I balance being two completely different people to a woman I fell in love with?” with the last 5% being the heroine instantly forgiving him.  Instead, Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward […]

Dr. OB by Max Monroe

Dr. OB by Max Monroe

The Doctor is In with all of the ingredients you’ve come to expect from writing duo Max Monroe:  some over-the-top-I-can’t-believe-that-just-happened hijinks, a dash of dirty talk, and a sweet happily ever after for a devastatingly good looking couple. Dr. OB is the first in the new St. Luc’s Docuseries trilogy focused on Will Cummings, an obstetrician filmed for a reality documentary series about his life at the hospital.  Unfortunately, the […]
