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 […]

Man Hands by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Man Hands by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

4 stars — OK, I adore Ms. Bowen, and writing with Ms. Eby obviously brought out another side to her!!  I was surprised with how much I enjoyed this one, b/c I’m not actually that attracted to those outrageous humour books that I see so many people love.  I have a bad case of sympathetic […]

The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

3.5 stars — I’ve been wanting to read this one since it came out last year, and was so excited when I snagged a copy on sale (not to mention a paperback copy).  It was definitely a delightful Christmas romance, but it started stronger than it finished for me. My one major problem with the […]

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, […]

Christmas at the Castle by Melissa McClone

Christmas at the Castle by Melissa McClone

4 stars — Oh dude, this was so refreshing after my last read!  I was sucked right into this one, it was everything I wanted in a Christmas book!  I honestly think it just hit all my Lenore buttons, you know?  I do find “royal” stories to be a bit of a guilty pleasure, and […]

The December Deal by Dana Volney

The December Deal by Dana Volney

2.5 stars — Yeah, this one just left me feeling very meh.  I didn’t end up being that captured by either character…we dive right into the story fairly quickly, and so we really don’t get to see who either of them are before it’s about the two of them together.  I think this kind of […]

Running Barefoot by Amy Harmon

Running Barefoot by Amy Harmon

4.5 stars — Every time I start a new Amy Harmon novel, I’m always a bit worried.  Why?  Because her writing and her writing style tend to be a bit out of my wheelhouse, but I always end up loving her books anyways.  So I’m always worried that this one will be the one that […]

Van by Sawyer Bennett

Van by Sawyer Bennett

Off Limits by Clare Connelly

Off Limits by Clare Connelly

Blurb: “I want to taste you tonight.” With chemistry this hot, it’s worth getting burned… Billionaire Jack Grant is totally off-limits to Gemma Picton. He’s wild, deliciously dangerous…and her boss.
