When I opened my eyes, I was in a cell, my body covered in bruises.

Not a jail.

I’d been kidnapped and imprisoned.

I wasn’t alone. I shared the cell with Garin Woods, the man I’d loved since I was a kid.

The man I couldn’t be with because of the secret. A man who would kill me if he found out what that secret was.

Someone wanted to torture me.

Torture us.

One of us deserved it.

It wasn’t Garin.

*WARNING* Prisoned is an extremely dark novel. There are strong sexual themes, drug usage, physical abuse and torture that could trigger and/or cause emotional suffering. You have been warned.

Kudos to Marni Mann for daring to delve into the area of dark erotica. It’s a risk that takes her well outside the boundaries of her previous novels, and while the premise is intriguing, unfortunately Prisoned just didn’t resonate with me. Read More

Review ♥ After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Review ♥ After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Plain and simple, After I Do is absolutely phenomenal. It’s a touching story about marriage, and what happens long after the honeymoon phase has ended. I suspect readers who’ve never been in a committed, long-term relationship may not be as affected by the book because it’s less about falling deeply in love than it is about slowly falling out of love. However, as a woman who has been married for twenty years and known my husband for more than half of my life, the story really resonated with me.

Blog Tour, Review & Excerpt ♥ Bad Judgment by Meghan March

Blog Tour, Review & Excerpt ♥ Bad Judgment by Meghan March

When I think of a Meghan March book, New Adult Romance is not a genre that comes to mind and neither is Romantic Comedy. Edgy, erotic, and suspenseful are all terms I’ve used to describe her previous work. I admit I was a wee bit skeptical that she could pull off a New Adult Romantic Comedy that’s still a little sexy, but I’ll be damned if Bad Judgment didn’t pleasantly surprise me.

Review ♥ The Fall Up by Aly Martinez

Review ♥ The Fall Up by Aly Martinez

There’s something to be said for trusting your friends with a book recommendation and diving in without reading the synopsis. So many people told me I had to read this book, but I didn’t know much about The Fall Up other than the fact that the protagonists meet on a bridge under mysterious circumstances.
