From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon

From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon

3 stars — Well, I ended this one feeling quite conflicted.  And as usual, I couldn’t resist going to Goodreads and reading through lower star reviews to see if I could help pinpoint my gripes.  *slaps hand*  What’s funny is that at least half of those people had the opposite gripe of me wrt to […]

The Locker Room by Amy Lane

The Locker Room by Amy Lane

ORIGINAL REVIEW: 5 stars — Well, at first I was thinking this review was going to be utterly pointless with just a bunch of gushing b/c I was so overwhelmed after I finished. But then I figured maybe I should sit down and actually figure out what specific things worked for me. B/C I don’t […]

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase

4.5 stars — I’ve been looking forward to this one since it came out, but you know how sometimes you’re so excited for something that you start to worry that you’ve hyped yourself up too much, and it can’t possibly do anything but disappoint you?  That’s how I started to feel about this book.  So […]

The Way Back to Us by Jamie Howard

The Way Back to Us by Jamie Howard

4 stars — I had a bit of a harder time getting sucked into this one, but I can’t figure out if that had more to do with me and my frazzled mind, or the book…  That’s always the kicker eh?  Which, obviously if I still gave it 4 stars, does not mean the book […]

Winter Ball by Amy Lane

Winter Ball by Amy Lane

3.5 stars — I enjoyed this one, but to be truthful it just made me want to reread The Locker Room (which I did…review coming soon).  I liked both Skipper and Richie, but they did feel a bit young…but that could be just the nature of these two characters.  They did feel authentic though, that wasn’t […]

One Snowy Night by Jill Shalvis

One Snowy Night by Jill Shalvis

4 stars — I was so happy to read this one so soon after The Trouble with Mistletoe, because I was so intrigued by Rory and Max in that story…you could really feel the undercurrents between them.  And so I got almost immediate gratification in this little novella.  And other than one tiny little thing […]

Love on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker

Love on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker

4.5 stars — Well this was a whole bowl full of awesome!  It was kind of tailor made for me.  I mean, I’m not sure how many people know this about me, but I am an Olympic FIEND.  It’s my favourite sport (and I realize it’s not a sport, just like rainbow isn’t a colour, […]

Van by Sawyer Bennett

Van by Sawyer Bennett

Blurb: Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot. As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation […]

Bad Princess by Julianna Keyes

Bad Princess by Julianna Keyes

Blurb: Notorious for leaping off roofs, maiming foreign royals, and that twerking incident, Brinley Cantrella of Estau is nobody’s definition of a good princess. She’s fearless and bold, not good and gracious. And after a lifetime of being told she’s unfit to be queen, wearing the crown and helping to usher Estau into a new era is […]
