Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt Book Review

Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   I hard a time getting into this book. Unfortunately, I haven’t been following the Maiden Lane series and with this being the 12th book in the series, I felt a little bit lost. I have only read a few books in this series and the one I recently read was Darling Beast, the 7th book in the series and it was amazing! That said, I still enjoyed Duke of Desire. I think it […]

This Book was Hilarious! The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I received an ARC for this book a few months before it was set to release but I had a hard time getting into it. I love Tessa Dare but that first chapter was excruciating.  I knew immediately that I would be listening to this book on audio so I waited until the release date and borrowed a copy of it from the library. Holy smokes The Duchess Deal blew me away! I don’t even know I had a hard time reading it in the […]

Flipping Pages: Royal Brotherhood Series by Sabrina Jeffries

In the Prince’s Bed | To Pleasure a Prince | One Night with a Prince Click on each title to skip to each review.   The Royal Brotherhood series is the very first series that I read by Sabrina Jeffries. I remember picking up I the Prince’s Bed in my local bookstore, read the blurb, and bought all 3 books. And what do you know, I absolutely LOVE this series! Although I LOVE The Hellions of Halstead Hall series the best, this is a VERY CLOSE second! It has been a while since I read these books and I loved delving in and revisiting these […]

This Book Didn’t Meet My Expectations. Third Son’s a Charm by Shana Galen Book Review

This Book Didn’t Meet My Expectations. Third Son’s a Charm by Shana Galen Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Ewan Mostyn is a very interesting character. With that being said, he is the only reason why this book got 3 stars! I have been anticipating this book. I love the trope – rich girl gets a bodyguard and falls in love with said bodyguard. But this wasn’t executed as well as I […]

Disciplined by the Duke by Alyson Chase Blog Tour + Giveaway

“Look at me.” His voice was quiet. Kind. But no less commanding than when he gave orders to his steward. Or his dogs. Her gaze rose over hard thighs, the fall of his trousers, the flat expanse of his stomach, and the wider expanse of his chest. She looked up until his eyes captured hers and held on. Her breath caught in her throat. His eyes weren’t the gray of unyielding stone anymore, but rather the shifting silvers and subdued greens of an ocean tossing in a storm. “I don’t make a habit out of breaking anyone’s, anything’s, spirit.” Dropping […]

I Need More Steampunk! Firelight by Kristen Callihan Audiobook Review

I Need More Steampunk! Firelight by Kristen Callihan Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Hello, awesomeness! I am still amazed at how much I love reading steampunk paranormal romance! This is not the genre that I normally read. In fact, the last steampunk paranormal books that I read was The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare and although I enjoyed them, they didn’t make me WANT to read more books from the genre. Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London series is another story! The world that she created is immersive and very interesting! Although this book didn’t receive 5 hearts from […]
