Mastering The Marquess by Lavinia Kent | Book Review

Mastering The Marquess by Lavinia Kent | Book Review

My Thoughts Mastering the Marquess by Lavinia Kent is the first book in her new Bound and Determined series. I have mixed feelings about this book. This book centers on Louisa, Lady Brookington, a virgin widow who asks help from Madam Rouge to find her a man to school her in the sensual arts. Enter Geoffrey, the Marquess of Swanston who has certain proclivities and reluctantly agrees to teaching the virgin widow in the sensual arts. After that one night together, Geoffrey can’t seem to forget his mystery lady. The first part of Mastering the Marquess was very interesting and very, […]

An Introduction to Pleasure by Jess Michaels | Audiobook Review

An Introduction to Pleasure by Jess Michaels | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers An Introduction to Pleasure is the first book in Jess Michaels’ Mistress Matchmaker series.  I had read this when it first came out on ebook but then decided to read it again via audiobook.  Again, I was blown away!  There is something about the mistress in training trope that I absolutely love.  Of course, this is an erotic romance so that does help! Masterfully written, An Introduction to Pleasure tells the story of Lysandra Keates, a desperate woman trying to support her ill mother when she gets turned out from her last […]

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins | Audiobook Review

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts I really don’t know how to review this book.  I initially borrowed it because I was intrigued by the premise – the heroine is a daughter of a Fallen Angel and a Guardian Angel and falls in love with a son of a Fallen Angel.  Sadly, I was wrong.  Let me start by enumerating the things that I didn’t like about this book.  Anna Whit was sickeningly sweet.  Okay, so just because you were a daughter of a Guardian Angel doesn’t mean that you have to be a goody-two-shoes and one really really sweet that it borders on […]

A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

My Thoughts A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin is the first book in the new series The Debutante Files by Sophie Jordan and it does not disappoint!  It is heartwarming and adorable at the same time.  A little less on the spicy side but still very entertaining. I really love Rosalie and Declan’s story.  Although there aren’t that many interactions between the two, they still sizzle whenever they are in a scene together.  Because of Declan’s grudge with Rosalie’s mother, he lumped her in the same ilk as she and had a hard time accepting her as a different person.  Rosalie, on […]

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Let the 75th Hunger Games begin!” There is a lot to say about Catching Fire that I do not know where to begin.  This book is a precursor of the things to come in the next book, Mockingjay and it also lays the groundwork for the rebellion. I could not stop listening to this book.  Not only is it amazingly written, I get to know all the characters more.  Katniss, Peeta, Gayle and Haymitch all reveal their characters here.  I also love the little hints sprinkled throughout the first part of the book, giving us a hint of what […]

How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less by Elizabeth Michels | Book Review

How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less by Elizabeth Michels | Book Review

My Thoughts How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less is the first book by Elizabeth Michels that I read.  This book is the third of the series but can read as a standalone.  I initially picked up this book because I had read a couple of books with the same title (or very, very similar) last month and I loved it!  I thought that this book would be the same.  The story focuses on a stuffy aristocrat, Andrew Clifton, Lord Amberstall and country girl recluse, Katie Moore.  Both have been a little estranged in society and found each […]
