Audio Review: Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas

Audio Review: Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas

Sugar Daddy is my first Lisa Kleypas read. I’ve seen so many bloggers that love her and I’ve wanted to branch out some into contemporary romance to have a bit of a break from my usual paranormal romance reads. I’m glad I gave a new to me genre a listen, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed Sugar Daddy. It was a bit slow in the being but it picked up speed after a few chapters. I didn’t know what to expect from Sugar Daddy, so I didn’t realize that we would be following the main heroine, Liberty Jones through her teen years up to her early twenties. But I enjoyed seeing her grow and it made me remember feelings I had during […]


Review: Firelight by Kristen Callihan

Review: Firelight by Kristen Callihan

Posted June 18, 2012 by Jennifer in Book Review | 9 Comments

Firelight is a mix-mash of genre elements. The timeline is historical and while reading it I often thought of The Phantom of the Opera, Beauty and the Beast and Jack the Riper, with paranormal elements through out. I had originally got approved for the ARC through Netgalley back in January but I kept pushing it down my reading schedule for different reasons. So by the time I was ready to start Firelight the galley had expired. But I’ve seen so many great reviews and high rating I thought what the heck. So I bought it for my Nook and I’m really glad I did. Firelight has the usual push and pull with the heroine and hero as far as the romantic stuff. You know boy […]

Audio Review: Three Days to Dead by Kelly Meding

I’ve had the Dreg City Series on my TBR list for a while now and since I’ve been on an Urban Fantasy kick I decided to finally start it. I totally love the world that Meding has built. Even though it’s paranormal and I’ve read many books with some of the same kind of creatures, I was not bored. Meding introduced different creatures in her world that I’ve heard of but not read and the why she described them were fantastic. You get vampires but you also get spirits, trolls, gargoyles and gremlins that talk like Yoda. Not to mention the fact that Evangeline (Evie) is brought back to life in a different body. That is totally new to me. Evie is still her, just […]


Review: A Lot Like Love by Julie James

Review: A Lot Like Love by Julie James

Posted June 14, 2012 by Jonetta in Book Review | 2 Comments

Nick McCall is an FBI Special Agent who has spent the last six years working undercover. The Roberto Martino case has led to another potential suspect who has laundered money for Martino’s organization. Jordan Rhodes owns a wine business, is the daughter of a billionaire and the twin of man who is now in prison for computer hacking. She’s been invited to the suspect’s gala event and is the FBI’s ticket to gaining entry to his establishment to place listening devices. I really enjoyed this story, primarily because of the characters. Nick is given more dimension through his interactions with his family, providing another perspective of the hard-edged G-man. Jordan is interesting, witty and self-confident without being arrogant. She’s quick and the dialogue with Nick […]
