Summary:

Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

My Review:

Intro: I am finally feeling better from my two weeks of illness. I was getting a little worried about myself there. I did, however, manage to get quite a lot of reading done during my lengthy illness and Seaside Secrets was one of the books I read---and loved.

I am a big fan of Melissa Foster. I have been reading through her books a bit sporadically but I have loved every one I have picked up.

Characters:

Heroine: Amy-It was so easy to identify with and like Amy. She was the shy and quiet girl with a long-standing crush. I mean that’s practically teen movie sort of perfect. It was so easy to root for her.

Hero: Tony-Tony was an awesome hero. He was kind and likable. He was protective of Amy and it is never in doubt just how much he loves her. He is definitely one of my favorite heroes in this series.

Chemistry- Amy and Tony have such a long and painful history that it is almost difficult to read at the start. There is plenty of angst and pain in their history together. But there journey back to each other is definitely interesting.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: Melissa Foster is one of my favorites and Seaside Secrets is the perfect example of why. Her writing style is engaging, her characters are likable and her stories are always heart-wrenchingly angsty. I loved this one..

Review: When Good Earls Go Bad by Megan Frampton

When Good Earls Go Bad: A Victorian Valentine's Day NovellaPublisher: Avon
 ISBN: 0062380303
 Pages: 208 pages
 Genre: Romance/Historical
Buy this Book: Amazon | Barnes |
 iTunes | Kobo

Summary:

Megan Frampton’s Dukes Behaving Badly series is back, though this time it’s an earl who’s meeting his match in this delightfully fun and sexy novella!

What’s a lovely young woman doing asleep in his bed? Matthew, Earl of Selkirk, is shocked to discover it’s his new housekeeper! She’s a far cry from the gray-haired woman he expected. Matthew is no fan of surprises, and Annabelle Tyne is pure temptation. Perhaps he shouldn’t have had her hired sight unseen.

Annabelle, co-owner of the Quality Employment Agency, is no housekeeper, but she wasn’t about to lose a potential client simply because there was no one to fit the bill. Imagine her shock when the Earl arrives at his London townhome and she’s awoken in the night by the most attractive man she’s ever seen.

Matthew is a man who lives life by the rules, but sometimes rules are made to be broken…and being bad can be very, very good.


My Review:

Intro: Oddly enough, I am still sick. Not in the overtly sick way but in a marginally sick way where everything seems sleepy and slower. I am also tragically behind in everything. I mean everything. But I was able to read this book (and far too few others) and write a (hopefully coherent) review.

Characters:

Heroine: Annabelle-I liked her. I really did. She had a bit of the Anne Shirley complex. She chattered about constantly. It could get annoying on a far less charming character but she was oh so charming.

Hero: Matthew-I loved Matthew. He was dour, serious and kind of the straight man in the story. And I loved that. My favorite male literary character is Severus Snape so of course I like the more serious characters. I just loved him.

Chemistry-I don’t think there could possibly be two more different characters on the planet than Annabelle and Matthew. Almost to the point that you wonder how these two people could possibly get along or fall in love. But they are perfect together in that whole “complete opposite” kind of way.

Chemistry Rating:


Conclusion: I really love novellas when I am not feeling at my best because my attention span goes out the window but I think I would have loved this one even if I was at my normal speed because Megan Frampton is awesome in a big way. And Annabelle and Matthew were just wonderful.

Review: Bound By Bliss by Lavinia Kent

Bound by Bliss (Bound and Determined #2)Publisher: Loveswept
ISBN: 0553394177
Pages: 288 pages
Genre: Romance/Historical
Buy this Book: Amazon | Barnes |
iTunes | Kobo

Summary:

In Lavinia Kent’s luscious, erotic historical romance, a free spirit learns her true desires from a master of the heart, of the body—and of the sweetest discipline.

Lady Bliss Danser, daughter of the Duke of Mirth, is a scandal waiting to erupt. Which is why her highly conventional brother wants to saddle her with Stephan Perth, Earl of Duldon, the only man he thinks will marry her. Worse, Stephan keeps threatening to punish her, to teach her just how a woman should behave. His words may cause Bliss to tingle in the strangest places, but that doesn’t mean she likes the man himself.

Stephan has secretly desired Bliss for years, but he knows how close he is to losing his beloved. Careful not to rile her impetuous heart, he promises only to aid Bliss in her search for another fiancé. And if she’s determined to understand the male body first, he’s happy to comply in that regard as well. However, she must follow his rules or face the consequences. Slowly he takes Bliss to the darker, steamier side of his world . . . where she realizes that Stephan is everything she’s ever wanted.

Bound by Bliss is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

My Review:

Intro: I am normally a bit iffy about jumping into a series so late but I figured I would give it a go with this one. It just sounded so good and I am a bit of a weakling when a book sounds good.

Characters:

Heroine: Bliss-She is one of the best heroines I have come across in the BDSM genre. She is strong, smart and not at all wishy-washy. She takes some control. She is not a bystander.  

Hero: Stephan-He frustrated me a lot. He seemed very controlling and overbearing towards Bliss. Not as bad as Christian Grey. Not even a little bit. But still enough that I wanted to throw a shoe at him.

Chemistry-I loved how Kent portrayed this type of relationship. The rules were laid out and agreed upon. Both characters had agency and control. I find that lacking in other similar books---not mentioning any titles.

Chemistry Rating:


Conclusion: I really liked this one. I think I may look into this genre more given how much I loved Bound By Bliss. I will definitely be going back and reading the previous books in the series which sound just as good.

Review: Diary of an Accidental Wallflower by Jennifer McQuiston

Diary of an Accidental Wallflower (Seduction Diaries, #1)Publisher: Avon
ISBN: 0062335014
Pages: 384 pages
Genre: Romance/Historical
Buy this Book: Amazon | B & N | 
iTunes | Kobo

Summary:

Pretty and popular, Miss Clare Westmore knows exactly what (or rather, who) she wants: the next Duke of Harrington. But when she twists her ankle on the eve of the Season’s most touted event, Clare is left standing in the wallflower line watching her best friend dance away with her duke.

Dr. Daniel Merial is tempted to deliver more than a diagnosis to London’s most unlikely wallflower, but he doesn’t have time for distractions, even one so delectable. Besides, she’s clearly got her sights on more promising prey. So why can’t he stop thinking about her?

All Clare wants to do is return to the dance floor. But as her former friends try to knock her permanently out of place, she realizes with horror she is falling for her doctor instead her duke. When her ankle finally heals and she faces her old life again, will she throw herself back into the game?

Or will her time in the wallflower line have given her a glimpse of who she was really meant to be?

My Review:

Intro: I have the flu. Again.  I am not the best sick person on the planet so everything I had planned for this week kind of went by the wayside. I am just now getting back into the swing of things…on Thursday evening…way too late to do anything constructive.

Characters:

Heroine: Clare-I have to admit that I didn’t like Clare at the start. I don’t have much patience for wimpy heroines lately but she grew on me and definitely wasn’t as weak as I first thought. She was really strong and not at all what I first thought of her.

Hero: Daniel-I absolutely loved Daniel. He was such a complex and interesting hero. He’s not the type you come across in every romance novel. He was intelligent, kind and it was difficult not to love him. He’s like an 8.5 on the Darcy-Craven Scale of Hero Awesomeness.

Chemistry: I say this often but I really shipped them. In the joining a fan club sort of war. Clare and Daniel were so sweet and perfect and I loved them. They had their issues and obstacles but they were just so amazing together.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I really love Jennifer McQuiston's books. I don’t think I have read one that did not work for me and this is definitely up there in the favorites. I can’t wait to read more of this series because it definitely started out well.

Review: Game Play by Lynda Aicher

Game Play (Power Play, #1)Publisher: Carina Press
Pages: 248 pages
Genre:  Romance/Contemporary/Sports
Buy this Book: Amazon | Barnes  |
Kobo  | iTunes

Summary:

One night, one time, nothing more. That’s all it was supposed to be. They’d agreed their first night together would be their only night together—and Minnesota Glaciers defenseman Dylan Rylie was fine with that. Giant hickeys and claw marks on his ass had never been his style, even if the very memory of Samantha Yates’s merciless sexual energy gets him hard within seconds. He needs to focus on getting a better contract, not mind-blowing orgasms.

One night, one time, nothing more. Fresh off representing the US at the Games and with nowhere else to play, Samantha gave in to one night of frantic passion with the Glaciers’ brawny hotshot. She couldn’t get hurt—not if she controlled the outcome. And she planned to leave Minnesota soon, anyway. She didn’t expect to be recruited to coach Dylan after they’d gotten down and dirty.

When brutal on-ice workouts lead to kinky locker room sessions and “one night” falls by the wayside, Samantha insists on keeping things casual, despite Dylan’s quiet hope for more. But when Dylan goes down—hard—and his career is in jeopardy, Samantha is the first one by his side. What will it take to keep her there after he’s healed?


My Review:

Intro: As I said in my previous review, I am a terrible sick person and I managed to get the flu. So I apologize if this review is not up to par. I tried my best. I’m also a big hockey fan so I tried extra hard.

Characters:

Heroine: Sam- I loved Sam. I loved that she was a hockey player too. And I love that she had a chip on her shoulder about the limited opportunities that female hockey players have. I love that she just didn’t accept it.

Hero: Dylan- He was less alpha than I would have liked. But I loved how that played out here. He was okay with letting Sam train him and be a bit of the stronger personality. He was so supportive and kind to Sam that it was difficult not to like him.

Chemistry: They definitely had plenty of chemistry. I wasn’t really expecting to love them together but I really did. They were great together. I loved the interplay between them with Sam training Dylan and how that works out.

Chemistry Rating:


Conclusion: I really liked this book. I love hockey so I tend to notice all of the inaccuracies with the sport and there were some in this one. But I don’t really read romance for hockey discussion so I feel okay dismissing those quibbles. I did really like this one.

The first thing you need to know about me is that I genuinely believe in true love and soul mates. I met my wonderful husband when we were still at school. I was sixteen, he was seventeen, we are high school sweethearts. Now more than twenty five years later, we are still very much in love and are happily married with two beautiful children. We live in picturesque New Zealand and I consider ourselves lucky to live in this magnificent part of the world.

I do have a full time job, but in my spare minutes I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking and reading. I’m an avid reader and tend to chomp through a large volume of books, mainly in the romance genre. And of course my other major ‘hobby’ is writing steamy rock star erotic romances!

I started writing in early 2014. After spending many years writing business documentation, and constantly being inspired by numerous romance novels, I decided to try my hand at fictional writing. After penning my first scene I discovered that I enjoyed it immensely and so resolved to continue with the rest of the story that was swirling in my imagination. That story resulted in my first novel, Heaven Sent.

My Oblivion on Tour Series follows the five band members of the hard rock group Oblivion. Each book in the series follows a different band member and their quest for love. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.

Review: Surrender by Violette Rand

Publisher: Loveswept
ISBN: 1101882670
Pages: 240 pages
Genre: Romance/Contemporary
Buy this Book: Amazon | Barnes |
iTunes | Kobo

Summary:

Welcome to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where the air is heavy with desire—and sometimes dreams come true.

Ever since her mother kicked her out, twenty-year-old Robyn Gonzalez has been working the poles at the Devil’s Den, saving up to finish college and travel the world. With only her wits and her gorgeous body to rely on, Robyn has learned to be independent—fiercely independent. She’s never been tempted to let a man distract her from her dreams . . . until she meets the dead-sexy Garrick Dempsey.

The club’s new head of security, Garrick had walked away from a career as a mechanical engineer to return to his roots in Corpus Christi. He hadn’t planned on getting to know someone like Robyn, with her sinfully sweet combination of vulnerability and strength, at the Devil’s Den. She acts tough, but only because she’s been hurt. Soon Garrick knows he will do anything to win Robyn’s trust. And if that means surrendering to the red-hot chemistry between them, all the better.




My Review:

Intro: I haven’t read a book by Violetta Rand yet and I was really looking forward to this one. I liked it. Quite a bit. Perhaps not enough to go on my list of favorites but enough that I am going to read the next book in the series.

Characters:

Heroine: Robyn-I liked Robyn. She was a strong heroine but also a bit vulnerable. But there were some aspects of her character that kept me from making a connection to her. I found her to be a bit judgy towards the other strippers at the club and it just frustrated me.

Hero: Garrick-I liked Garrick as well. He was an alpha with a tender side. I have been reading Mary Balogh lately—her early books—and her alphas very rarely have a tender side. So Garrick was a nice break. But again, I didn’t find myself making as much of a connection to Garrick as I had hoped.

Chemistry: I don’t necessarily have to connect to both characters to buy into romantic chemistry but it does help. And with this one, I did have some trouble. I liked them together but I just never made that connection with them as a couple.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I liked this one. I had some trouble with connecting with the characters and I am one of those readers who has trouble getting into a story if I cannot connect with the characters. I eventually did but it took longer than usual. But, that being said, I really did love Rand’s writing style so I will read the next book in the series because the next book sounds awesome.

Review: Worth the Risk by Claudia Connor

Worth the Risk (The McKinney Brothers, #2)Publisher: Loveswept
ISBN: 0553390929
Pages: 272 pages
Genre:  Romance/Contemporary
Buy this Book:Amazon | B&N |
iTunes | Kobo

Summary:

When a McKinney brother falls in love, powerful emotion and overwhelming desire are never far behind.

Two hearts locked away . . . Hannah Walker spends her days coaching children through injury and trauma, one therapeutic horseback ride at a time. She knows all too well how violence can change a child and leave scars that never heal. It’s easy for her to relate to the kids; what isn’t easy is the thought of facing her own harrowing past.

Millionaire playboy Stephen McKinney could use a little coaching himself. Five years ago he encountered his most horrible nightmare—and the nightmare won. No matter what he achieves, nothing can make up for that awful night . . . or so he believes.

Both desperate for a second chance . . . Stephen is used to getting what he wants. And he wants Hannah. So when she turns him down, he’s intrigued. What he doesn’t know is that her secrets will lead him to a place he never wanted to go again . . . to a side of himself he’s tried to forget . . . a side that would scare Hannah away from ever loving him. Now his only chance to win her trust is to bare his soul, risking everything he tried so hard to protect.


My Review:

Intro: I read Worth the Fight in about an hour. That should say something about how I felt about this book. I breezed through it. And I just bought new video games so I shouldn’t have but I did.

Characters:

Heroine: Hannah-I loved Hannah. She was such a compassionate and kind person. I find that so refreshing to see. She also had a innate strength to her character that I really loved. It was so easy to make a connection to her and I usually have trouble with that.

Hero: Stephen-I loved Stephen too. He was such an awesome hero. He had some depth to him. He initially came off as very arrogant and playboy but there were so many different layers to him. I loved how gentle and considerate Stephen was towards Hannah.

Chemistry: I absolutely loved these two together. They were two very broken people and watching their journey together was really interesting. There were some very angsty and heart-wrenching moments—and we all know how much I love that. I shipped them, I have to admit, and I shipped them hard.

Chemistry Rating:


Conclusion: I really did like this book quite a bit. I’m pretty sure this is a series that I will be following. I loved both Hannah and Stephen. They had the most amazing chemistry and I loved the angsty bits. I have to admit that I am waiting for the first big book fail of the year. It hasn't happened yet and I am terrified.

Review: In Your Wildest Scottish Dreams by Karen Ranney

In Your Wildest Scottish DreamsPublisher: Avon
ISBN: 0062337475
 Pages: 384 pages
Genre: Romance/Historical
Buy this Book: Amazon | B&N | iTunes

Summary:

New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney's first novel in a brand-new series spins the intriguing story of a beautiful widow and a devilishly handsome shipbuilder...

Seven years have passed since Glynis MacIain made the foolish mistake of declaring her love to Lennox Cameron, only to have him stare at her dumbfounded. Heartbroken, she accepted the proposal of a diplomat and moved to America, where she played the role of a dutiful wife among Washington's elite. Now a widow, Glynis is back in Scotland. Though Lennox can still unravel her with just one glance, Glynis is no longer the naïve girl Lennox knew and vows to resist him.

With the American Civil War raging, shipbuilder Lennox Cameron must complete a sleek new blockade runner for the Confederate Navy. He cannot afford any distractions, especially the one woman he's always loved. Glynis's cool demeanor tempts him to prove to her what a terrible mistake she made seven years ago.

As the war casts its long shadow across the ocean, will a secret from Glynis's past destroy any chance for a future between the two star-crossed lovers?

My Review:

Intro:  I know it’s very early in the year but I think this one will be pretty high on my favorite reads of the year. Karen Ranney very rarely writes a book that I don’t love but I adored this one. It’s on the Never a Gentleman and Dreaming of You (my favorite romances) level.

Characters:

Heroine: Glynis-I really loved Glynis. Her story with Lennox is so painful and heartbreaking. But she was such a strong heroine. I also loved that she gave Lennox a bit of the cold shoulder. She was hurt and she didn’t let it go easily.

Hero: Lennox-I started out kind of mad at Lennox because I was so sympathetic to Glynis but Lennox did not do what he did maliciously. He just kind of blundered into hurting Glynis. I like how he never really gave up on Glynis even though she gave him the epic cold shoulder.

Chemistry: Second chance at love is my favorite romance trope. It’s very rarely a disappointment in terms of angsty goodness. And it definitely wasn’t her. I felt for both Glynis and Lennox. Glynis because she was so hurt by Lennox and got married to a dunderhead for all the wrong reasons and Lennox because he didn’t really intend to hurt Glynis and really did love her.

Chemistry Rating:



Conclusion: I love love loved this one so much. It was one of those that I sat up all night and read straight through. I don’t do that often anymore. I loved the second chance at love storyline and the unique way it was done and I just adored both Lennox and Glynis.
