Holy cannoli! There’s a heck of a lot of heat packed into these 166 pages of erotica. Dirty Billionaire is the first book in the Dirty Billionaire Trilogy. It’s aptly named because sexy alpha billionaire Creighton Karas must have a Master’s Degree in Dirty Talking. He probably has a Doctorate in Insanely Hot Bedroom Skills too since I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard of that thing he does with a bottle of whiskey. Be prepared to break out your fans.
Sexy Gandalf, mistaken identity, catastrophic engine failure, and Truth or Dare. Leave it to Penny Reid to whip up such a delightful combination in Truth or Beard. Right from the start, she had me in the palm of her creative and whimsical little hands.
I feel conflicted about Kick. On the one hand, the writing is amazing: engaging, exciting, intense, and evocative. On the other hand, the main character, Fiona, deeply disturbs me. The fact that this is a novella with a well-rounded plot and a multi-dimensional main character, let alone a short story that causes discordant emotions, is a testament to CD Reiss’s skill as a writer.
I suspected Kate Stewart was a talented writer when I read Loving the White Liar, but reading The Fall has made me a true believer. The Fall is a second chance love story that well exceeded my expectations.
I’ve been in love with K. Bromberg’s Driven series since the very beginning. The characters in her books have heart, the bonds between friends are impenetrable, the humor flows, and there is always an underlying poignancy to elevate the stories from being more than just over-sexed romanced novels. Sweet Ache is no exception.
NOTE: Coda is the last book in the Songs of Submission series. It is not a standalone and should be read after Sing. This review contains major spoilers that pertain to Sing.
The Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy and the Game On series by Kristen Callihan are probably the two most popular series in the college sports romance sub-genre. Jen Frederick makes no secret that their work was the inspiration for Sacked, and in many regards it’s a successful homage.
I tend to avoid love triangles; however, this one has a twist. Evan, a Navy SEAL, leaves his pregnant fiancé, Ryley, when deployed on a special mission. When he’s “killed” in the line of duty, Evan’s twin brother, Nate, is there to help Ryley pick up the pieces. Six years later, Evan returns home to find that Ryley and Nate are engaged and his son calls his brother, “Dad.” The premise sounds intriguing. The problem with this story is in its execution.
