Book Review: Mitigation by Sawyer Bennett

Book Review: Mitigation by Sawyer Bennett

Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★½

One Line: The beginning of big changes, I loved it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Mitigation starts off right where Violation left off, right when you think Matt has turned a leaf and things are going to change, he’s even more closed off and adamantly against a real relationship with Mac. Luckily for us Mac fans, she holds strong and knows she deserves more from Matt, so even though… Read more »

Book Review: Unravel Me by Tori St. Claire

Book Review: Unravel Me by Tori St. Claire

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★½

One Line: While it has its charms, it was a miss for me. In My Opinion: Worth a try! Unravel Me was another minor miss for me. There were some parts I liked, but for the most part, it was lacking that spark. Maybe because the author was trying have this book be part BDSM and part emotionally touching romance, it just didn’t mesh well for me. I felt like… Read more »

Book Review: Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

Book Review: Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★★

One Line: Even better than the first, I loved it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I love how Shepherd is able to retell a story with such bravado and elegance, weaving it into the ongoing plot that spans a few books. Her Dark Curiosity is based off of Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde and I think it was a great way to continue Juliet’s story after what happened on that island…. Read more »

Book Review: Down on Her Knees by Christine Bell

Book Review: Down on Her Knees by Christine Bell

Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★½

One Line: I could see the appeal, but this one just wasn’t for me. In My Opinion: Worth a try! While I enjoyed this book to a certain extent, I have to say I was a bit put off by how quickly things moved with Rafe and Courtney. There was pretty much no substantial preamble, they denied their feelings for like a second, and then went for it. Now I’m… Read more »

Book Review: Vortex by Julie Cross

Book Review: Vortex by Julie Cross

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

One Line: A bit confusing and hard to keep up with, but good. What I Loved: Jackson is a stellar male protagonist and I loved being in his head. He steps up his game since he’s joined the CIA and their team of highly-skilled young adults and you really see his character development from Tempest to Vortex. Things became a lot intense and interesting towards the end and I can’t… Read more »

Book Review: Wanton Heat by Nicola Marsh

Book Review: Wanton Heat by Nicola Marsh

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: It has its pitfalls, but it was an okay read. In My Opinion: Worth a try! Wanton Heat falls into the category of okay reads as far as Brazens go. It wasn’t the best, but it wasn’t bad. I really liked Zoe, the main female character. She’s tough, witty, and determined. I loved that she went head-to-head with Dom and didn’t let his hot and cold tendencies deter… Read more »

Book Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Book Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: A strong and emotional conclusion to one of my favorite series. What I Loved: From the very beginning, I’ve loved Jack and he did not disappoint in this last book. His unconditional love for Nikki and all he does for her, is just plain amazing. He has to deal with a lot of crap, especially given the connection between Nikki and Cole and I loved that he put… Read more »

Book Review: Tempted by the Soldier by Nicolette Day

Book Review: Tempted by the Soldier by Nicolette Day

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★★

One Line: Another scorching hit from Nicolette Day that I simply devoured! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Tempted by the Soldier had me glued to the pages. I loved it! Not only is Day’s writing engaging and fun, her characters are so entertaining. The scorch factor was definitely high here, too and was funny seeing these two fight their attraction to one another. I think Day handled the struggles… Read more »

Book Review: Rome by Jay Crownover

Book Review: Rome by Jay Crownover

New Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★½

One Line: A great set of characters that made this a highly enjoyable read. What I Loved: I really loved the characters, especially Cora. She’s definitely a tough little thing and I love how she doesn’t take crap from anyone and how she’s like “one of the guys”. It was cool to meet the other characters, and I have to admit, I read this series out of order. I also… Read more »

Book Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Book Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★

One Line: Beautiful writing, but I couldn’t get into the romance. What I Loved: I was initially drawn to the fact that Cruel Beauty is supposed to be a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I don’t think I’ve read any of those so it was nice to see how this author would tackle it. I really loved Hodge’s writing. It was very elegant, vivid, and imaginary. I liked the world… Read more »
