                     I was so blown away by Christina Lauren’s Autoboyography that I emailed two of my former English professors to recommend the book to them for their YA Lit classes they have for teaching majors. I believe this book should be added to all high school reading lists across the world!! Why was I blown away? Book Hangover: Autoboyography is one of those novels I will be thinking about weeks after listening to it. This rarely happens to me. Sure I stay stuck on a book for a day or two maybe but weeks?! I can count on one hand how many books have stayed with me that long. This novel is so beautifully written. They layers to […]

    The aftermath of the grudgingly put together merger of two publishers created two co-CEOs with their own personal assistants who sit adjacent to each other in silent (mostly) animosity. Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman are protectful of their respective CEOs and never miss an opportunity to one-up each other in any way. Things ratchet up when they’re placed in direct competition for a new job but when circumstances thrust them together outside of the office, Lucy and Josh are forced to see each other beyond the snarling and sneering.   Lucy tells the story and her perspective couldn’t be more entertaining. She’s smart, funny and clever but has a penchant for needing to be liked and that’s her driver. Joshua is moody, broody […]

    Bryn Kelly moved from Austin to New York a few months ago to chase her dream of opening her fashion design store. When a friend sets up a meeting for her with business tycoon Aaric Christos, she’s got more at stake than her business start up. See, she knew him from years ago when he was a lowly mechanic in Austin with a serious crush on her. It’s been eight years and part of her doesn’t want him to remember her given that she turned him away.   Even though Evan’s heroines always seem a bit more immature than they should be, I’m always drawn to her books because of the storytelling and her complex alpha personalities. It helps that we periodically get […]

      WOW Inseverable by Cecy Robson has everything. Romance The romance between Trinity and Callahan is explosive. It starts out slow because he just wants to be left alone. She just wants to make him smile. Heart Break The reason Callahan wants to be alone is his past. He’s fresh out of the military and is dealing with the horrors he went through serving for 8 years. The hurt he is going through is truly heart breaking. Trinity is dealing with her own past issue, her ex and best friend where cheating on her together. She has trust issues when it comes to romance and he has issues with himself and how he believes doesn’t deserve a HEA. Laughter Trinity is a hilarious character. There […]

        Dillon and Kit grew up together, competing with each other, even at the same college, and are both medical professionals. Dillon has been out of town in the service, Doctors Without Borders and in practice elsewhere. After ten years, he is back in the hometown. Kit has been in the small town where they grew up other than her college time. This is a rivals to lovers story. Turned Up starts out very antagonistic; it is difficult to believe at their ages and professional capacities they would act this way. When they fight, they get each other to do better. I found it tedious. They have always had “chemistry” and the sexy times are hot. They get snowed in together which […]

    Evie Abbey is a highly successful features talent agent at Price & Dickles in Los Angeles. She meets Carter Aaron, a television literary talent agent at CT Management, when they both attend a costume party hosted by mutual friends and they’re the only singles. Turns out they really clicked, even though they worked for competing agencies. When circumstances play a cruel joke and they end up not only working together but in direct competition for the same job, things get…well, complicated.   What I really loved about this story was its authenticity. Most of us know how cutthroat the Hollywood industry can be so there’s no way to avoid having two successful people not have a little larceny in their souls. Evie and […]

        I love this Winston Brothers series and its characters. I trust Penny Reid for smart and humorous writing. The feels are gigantic! It isn’t just the characters, the small town world, the romance of each book; it is also the intelligent, compassionate handling of authentic feelings and issues. There are also other things happening besides the romance for layers of emotions and information, like real life. Beard in Mind is the fourth book, with Beau and Shelly. Beau is one of the twins, with Duane. Shelly is Quinn’s sister, of Janie and Quinn from Neanderthal Seeking Human  in the related Knitting in the City series.  Beau is the cheerful, polite one who gets along with everyone, until Shelly. He has so, […]

My Favorite Fictional Cowboys – Serving Up the Eye Candy You won’t find a lot of classically beautiful women or men in my books, and even when they are (I’m looking at you Delon, in Tangled in Texas) I shy away from putting a huge amount of emphasis on looks as the basis of attraction. Sure, we all get our heads turned by a pretty face, and my characters definitely notice the fit of a good pair of jeans, but lasting love comes from being irresistibly compelled by who a person is, down deep in their bones, and shared interests and values that are expressed in actions, not just sweet words. However, I am not averse to an occasional heaping helping of eye candy, which […]
