A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “A fun romance with a geeky heroine!” I have been intrigued by Minerva Highwood ever since I read A Night to Surrender, the first book in the Spindle Cove series.  Of course, we were given a small glimpse of Minerva’s romance and the rogue Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne.  This book has also been recommended by quite a few romance bloggers (I’m looking at you, Mary!) so I immediately jumped on the bandwagon. I was not disappointed! I love Minerva Highwood!  Her strength and unique character really shown in this book.  Although we see it in the previous book, […]

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Cress by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Before starting my review, I would like to apologize to my readers for posting a blank post for this review a few weeks back.  With my pending vacation (I am still on said vacay), I was unaware that I set this review to post when I haven’t even written it!  So, please pardon my flightiness! My Thoughts Warning: This review may contain spoilers Since I read Scarlet, I have been super excited to read Cress because let’s face it, Thorn is a very interesting character!  In fact, I was hoping that Thorn would be the hero in this book.  I was not […]

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 […]

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | Audiobook Review

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts I’ve heard about Shadow and Bone a while back but was mildly interested.  I had begun reading more YA books by then via audiobooks and I enjoy that format when “reading” YA books.  The Boss, who works out of state, decided that he wanted to read more books on his downtown and asked for recommendations.  I honestly shove more YA recommendations his way which he reads without question and even finishes the whole series before I do!  Because of that, I decided to go ahead and read Shadow and Bone since he said it was OK. Let me […]

Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts Tessa Dare has done it again!  Romancing the Duke, the first book in her Castles Ever After series is an awesome read!  I have been reading Tessa Dare’s backlist and I must say she has become an auto-click author for me! Romancing the Duke is about Isolde Goodnight, a daughter of a well-known children’s author who has been gifted a castle by her godfather.  She has been left destitute by her father and had nowhere to go until she got word about her inheritance.  She immediately embarks on a journey to claim her castle without knowing that said […]

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 […]
