Book Review – Written In Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop

Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy Standalone/Series: Series Published on: March 5, 2013 Pages: 514 POV: Third person POV Source: gifted Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon It has been a while since I read a great urban fantasy. I had been a contemporary romance reader for the past two years, therefore, reading a different genre that was a total opposite needed some getting used to. It took me a while to finish this book. The reasons for it are, first, it is a very long book (I am a slow reader), and, second is I needed the time to understand the world in this story, which was completely different than the […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: March 14, 2017 Pages: 206 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Welcome to the motorcycle club world! I loved Joanna Wylde’s Reapers series and genuinely think that her MC series is one of the best. I couldn’t have been happier when I heard that the president of the Reapers MC would have his own book. I had been looking forward to reading his story in general and how he met his old lady. What is the story about? It follows a young woman named Mandy who has had a tough life since she […]

This was not my first time reading Samantha Young’s books. I loved her On Dublin Street series. Her writing was what motivated me to read this book. What is the story about? Bailey Hartwell and Vaughn Tremaine have been enemies since he came to Hartwell and decided to build a fancy hotel on the Broadwalk. […]

I have never cried this hard since my last ugly-cry book, and I have a feeling that this book will stay in my heart for a very long time. This story had broken my heart to pieces, rebuilt it in the process, and made it complete again. My advice […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: October 22, 2014 Pages: 416 POV: First Person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon The blurb and one of the authors, Skye Warren, were the factors that made me give this book a try. I loved her book “Wanderlust,” so I knew what to expect from her. In addition, the blurb was fantastic. It caught my eye the moment I read it. And since I was in the mood for something edgy, I chose this book. To my surprise, this book was not as dark as I had first expected it to be. What is it about? […]

Favorite Series – Venom Series by Shanora Williams

I’ve just finished two of the books in this series and I LOVED them. This series is one of my favorite dark romance books. I can’t wait for the final book to be released. I highly recommend this series for those who love unconventional, thought-provoking books and are open to sensitive subjects. Each book cannot be read as a standalone; they need to be read in order. 🙂 About Book 1: Imagine this: Your husband is murdered on your wedding day. Your gown is soiled in his blood. You are taken hostage… Treated like a caged animal. The man behind your husband’s murder is […]

Book Review – Venom & Ecstasy (Venom #2) by Shanora Williams

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: February 15, 2017 Pages: 248 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon This is the second book in the Venom series which picks up where Passion and Venom (book 1) left off. This is not a standalone. You need to read the previous book in order to follow this story. I normally hate cliffhangers, however, for some unknown reasons, I couldn’t help to read this series, even though I had to torture myself in the process. This story is not for everyone. In case you haven’t read my review for Passion and Venom yet, this […]

Book Review – Passion & Venom (Venom #1) by Shanora Williams

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: September 13, 2016 Pages: 188 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon When the author said “this is not for everyone,” I knew right away that this book was for me. I love books that will push my boundaries, drag me out of my comfort zone, and put me in a new level of intense book love. This book really did it to me. However, since it contains taboo and forbidden topics, it is NOT FOR EVERYONE. If you are sensitive to violence, rape, torture, abuse, blood and murder, please, don’t read this […]

Favorite Series – The Renegades Series by Rebecca Yarros

I have a new favorite series that I highly recommend for those who love college romances. Each book can be read standalone, but it would be better to read them in order since the stories are interconnected. 😀 About Book 1: He’s Paxton Wilder. Twenty-two-year-old, tattooed, smoking-hot leader of the Renegades. Five time X Games medalist. The world is his playground—especially this year—and for the next nine months I’m stuck as his tutor on the Study at Sea program. He’s too busy staging worldwide stunts for his documentary to get to class. But if I can’t get him to take academics seriously, I’ll lose my scholarship…if I don’t […]

It took me just seconds before I decided to purchase this book and drop the books I had planned to read at the time. I was hooked on the idea. What an interesting, clever idea. Since I was in the mood for something different than what I had been used to read, I bought this book with high expectations and excitement I hadn’t felt for a while. What is it about? Matt and Jacob […]
