Graceling by Kristin Cashore | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “This audiobook is freaking awesome!” Have you ever read a book featuring FEMALE assassins?  No, scratch that.  Have you ever read a Young Adult book featuring assassins?  I know I’m late in the game but this is the first YA book that I read featuring female assassins and I was blown away!  This story is amazingly well written and unique!  Plus, this is a stand-alone book and does not end on a cliffhanger!  What’s more, there are no freaking LOVE TRIANGLES!  Just a love between a prince and an assassin.  This book has adventure, magic, romance, courage, danger, […]

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Unique.  I couldn’t put it down! A must read!” Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series and it is my favorite (I’ve also read Cress) so far!  I absolutely love this retelling of Little Red Riding Hood!  Ms. Meyer has a way of merging both stories – Cinder ( a retelling of Cinderella)  and Scarlet.  It is seamlessly done and very well written. Scarlet focuses on the story of  Scarlet Benoit (Little Red Riding Hood) and Wolf in relation to the whole series.  Scarlet’s grandmother, Michelle Benoit an Imperial Pilot (or something) has gone missing […]

Once More, My Darling Rogue by Lorraine Heath | Book Review + Giveaway

Once More, My Darling Rogue by Lorraine Heath | Book Review + Giveaway

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers Once More, My Darling Rogue is the second book in the Scoundrels of St. James series by Lorraine Heath and focuses on Drake Darling and Lady Ophelia Lyttleton.  We meet both of these characters in the first book When the Duke was Wicked since Lady Ophelia is Lady Grace’s best friend.  We should also note that Drake Darling is that little boy Frannie and Sterling adopted in Surrender to the Devil who was then known as Peter Sykes. Let me start to say this book is very emotional since it touches on subjects […]

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 […]

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 […]

Deeply in You by Sharon Page | Book Review

Deeply in You by Sharon Page | Book Review

My Thoughts Deeply in You is the first book in the new series The Wicked Dukes by Sharon Page and tells about Helena Winsome who is forced to spy on the Duke of Greyson in exchange for her brother’s debts.  She poses as a governess of the Duke’s sister but when she unknowingly captures his attention, she desperately decides to become his mistress instead. I thought there was a good mix between the romance and the erotics in this story which is exactly what I want in my erotic romance.  Initially, we are introduced to Helena, a sister of a newspaper […]
