hero, by samantha young

I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about Samantha Young’s, On Dublin Street. So, when I saw Hero on the NY Times Bestseller List, I took the opportunity to give it a try. I was not disappointed. On Dublin Street is now on my TBR (to be read) list. But let’s dive in to the book at hand, shall we? Hero tells the tale of Caine Carraway, a successful business mogul and Alexa Holland, a photographer’s...

soaring, by kristen ashley

Big fan! I’m hoping my streak of bad reads is over. As I’ve stated, repeatedly, Kristen Ashley is one of my most fave romance authors. Her characters are real and more often than not, relatable. I’ve read almost all of her series and stand-alone’s, which comes to 20+ books, so when I say I’m a fan, I mean I’m a fan. Anyway… Soaring is part of Ashley’s Magdalene series. Unfortunately, I did not love the...

But, the masses were right on this one. Shall we… Six months...

debt, by nina g. jones

In recognition of Valentine’s Day, tara’s take will be celebrating romantic reads for the month of February. So, in a “go big or go home” kind of way–let’s kick off the month with a review of the book Debt, by Nina G. Jones. This falls into the totally twisted category for sooo many reasons. I don’t give disclaimers on too many books, but be forewarned on this one–subject matter content is extremely intense, graphic, and...

captivated by you, by sylvia day

I bought the first book in this series, Bared to You, during a weather delay in the Miami airport. Loved it! I have been a devotee of the Gideon/Eva story and subsequently Sylvia Day, ever since. Since I loved Entwined With You so much I was happy that there were more books forthcoming (unlike some…see Saturday’s post) and Captivated By You did not disappoint. At this point, Gideon and Eva are outwardly together and living together full-time. They’re...
