Excerpt + Giveaway: The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan

August 30, 2014 Giveaway 0

My mother once told me that the most important moment in my life wouldn’t be when I won the National Championship or even the Super Bowl. It would be when I fell in love. Life, she insisted, is how you live it and who you live it with, not what you do to make a living. Given that she told me this when I was sixteen, I basically rolled my eyes and worked on practicing my pass fakes. But my mother was insistent. “You’ll see, Drew. One day, love will… Read more »

ROMP with a side of Stomp from Bec McMaster

ROMP with a side of Stomp from Bec McMaster

August 29, 2014 Author Guest Post, Giveaway, Stomp vs Romp 3.0 23

  If any of you know my London Steampunk books, then you’ll know that I like to mix a fair bit of ROMP with my STOMP. Featuring daring duels, dangerous escapes by dirigible, or thrilling chases through the eerie, fog-dusted London streets… there’s plenty here for the STOMP fan, but when it comes down to it, I’m definitely Team ROMP. Because while my books feature a strong undercurrent of action, the most fascinating part is watching two people fall in love. Fighting monsters is all well and good, but fighting… Read more »

Another 5 Star read! Evernight by Kristen Callihan

Another 5 Star read! Evernight by Kristen Callihan

August 29, 2014 Reviews 6 ★★★★★

Kristen Callihan’s Dark London series have all been 5 star reads for me and EVERNIGHT is no different! I don’t give out many 5 stars and to have a whole series with 5 stars is really saying something! It’s hard to pick out my favorite book/couple. Before reading EVERNIGHT, Jack and Mary from SHADOWDANCE was my favorite couple but now they are tied with Holly and Will. Holly and Will’s story starts near the end of SHADOWDANCE where they are both kidnapped by an evil and crazy fallen Angel. They… Read more »

Chloe Neill Still Serving Up the Goods in Blood Games

August 28, 2014 Audio Book, Reviews 5 ★★★½

I had a dual experience with BLOOD GAMES. I recently had LASIK (laser eye surgery) and I couldn’t read for a few days but I really wanted to dig into BLOOD GAMES. I’ve never listen to the series on audio but when I saw that Tantor.com was having a 50% off sale I grabbed the audio copy of BLOOD GAMES for the low price of $9. I figured if I didn’t care for the narrator I could always switch to my print copy that the publisher sent me. And that’s… Read more »

Top Five Reasons Why Sex Scenes Trump Fight Scenes Thanks, Jennifer for having me as a guest today! Sure, fight scenes can keep you on the edge of your seat, but nothing gets your heart pumping like a good sex scene.

Getting the Crush. Rumor Has It by Jill Shalvis

August 27, 2014 Audio Book, Reviews 4 ★★★★

I LOVE it when the girl gets the guy she’s had a big crush on. Love it! And Jill Shalvis writes this romance trope well! What do you get when you take a 2nd grade teacher and an ex-Special Ops soldier and put them together? A hot (not sweet!) romance in RUMOR HAS IT.  Everyone in Sunshine calls Kate sweet and it drives her nuts when Griffin, who happens to be her BFF’s big brother and her all time crush, calls her sweet. She doesn’t want Griffin to see her… Read more »
