Book Review – Prisoner by Annika Martin & Skye Warren

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? Abigail Winslow is a college student who […]

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 series contains heavy subjects such as torture, […]

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 book. However, if you are open to […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone or Series: Standalone Published on: December 2, 2014 Pages: 467 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS! Buy on Amazon OMG.. One of the best books I’ve read so far. Period! I’ve never felt this level of being consumed and connected in a long time, reading wise. In a very rare occasion, I had found myself rereading a book right after I was finished reading it and even got excited all over again even though I’d already known how it would go. My heart was over the place and I was in the state of emotional roller coaster I’ve been longing for. This is why I love […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: February 14, 2017 Pages: 368 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Wow… This book has the power to make you completely immersed in the story without even realizing it. I was feeling like I was in the story, not the one who was reading it, since the very first page. It was getting better as I turned the pages and turned out to be completely the opposite of what I’d had in mind. What is it about? It follows an outstanding girl named Dixie. She is sweet and selfless… the kind of girl that always sees the good in […]

Book Review – Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: February 11, 2017 Pages: 282 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon This book has all the feels that I always look for in second-chance romance: sexy, funny, and not overly angsty. It had me from the very first page; my heart was pounding with excitement and anticipation that I’d rarely experienced in reading second-chance romance. I’m usually very critical on why the main characters were separated in the past and if the reasons aren’t convincing, I rarely enjoy them. In addition to it, I don’t like an overly angsty story when the purpose is sole to make excuses for main characters to break […]

How in this world have I not already read this book is still a mystery for me now. What is it about? Veronica Locke fell in love with Logan Shephard when she first laid her eyes on him.
