I just absolutely love Ruthie Knox! Is my good to for contemporary romances ever since I read About Last Night and everything I’ve read of hers I’ve enjoyed whole heartily. So I had high hopes when I started reading How to Misbehave. Ruthie didn’t let me down. How to Misbehave is a quick and satisfying read to start Knox’s Camelot series.  It’s a story with the promise of a HEA for the couple which I hope we get to see again in the other books to come in the series since they are about the heroine’s siblings. Amber is a “good girl”, she does everything that is expected of her. She’s a good daughter, student and now she is looking to mix things up in […]

Inertia
  By Amelia Gormley
 Book #1 in the Impulse series
 Contemporary Romance, M/M Romance
 By the age of 21, down-to-earth Detroit handyman Derrick Chance had lost everyone he’d ever loved. Too worn-out and wounded to play the dating game, he wrote off the possibility of relationships, or even just sex. Living alone in the old house his grandparents had left him, with only his dog and a few close friends for companionship, he refused to consider himself lonely, or let himself wonder what he might be missing. He knew who he was and where he was headed. His life was comfortable, organized, predictable, and best of all, risk-free. He was content.

Until the day he installed some shelves for accountant Gavin Hayes. A contradictory combination of […]

Billy Wilkins was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, an NHL hockey team and he’s miserable. The coach doesn’t believe in his rough playing style and Billy is resisting change. Madelyn Cornish wants nothing to do with him following her surprise confrontation with him at Victoria’s party but she’s being forced to because her producers have put Billy on her show as part of a short term makeover project. No one knows of their history and that he’s her ex-husband. I wasn’t excited about reading this story as Billy seemed to be a bit of a wreck in the earlier books. Well, this turned out to be my most favorite of the series. Billy IS a wreck but not for the reasons I thought. Instead of […]

Audio Review: Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

Audio Review: Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. Lisa Kleypas is now one of my favorite authors. She is a great way to ease into the Contemporary Romance world. I would have to say that Smooth Talking Stranger is tie with Blue-Eyed Devil as my favorite in the trilogy. One thing that sets the Travises trilogy apart from other romance books I’ve read is that the female leads are the ones that have the messed up pasts. And the men are the ones that “fix” the women. Oh sure the guys are alpha types but they have to learn to be a little softer to help out their women. Ella had a rough childhood being raised by a mother that was no mother at […]
