In Her Corner by Vicki Essex

In Her Corner by Vicki Essex

February 7, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2

I enjoyed Essex’s 2013 release, Back to the Good Fortune Diner, so when Brie tweeted about In Her Corner earlier this week it didn’t take much for me to decide to buy the book. I’m not the biggest fan of romances featuring MMA fighters as it’s hard to reconcile HEA… Read more »

Covet Thy Neighbor by L.A. Witt

January 27, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 7

In one of my links posts last week, I mentioned wanting to read a romance featuring a religious or atheist character where there was no conversion narrative. That caught the attention of Riptide editor Sarah Frantz, whom I’ve talked to on Twitter for years, and she offered me a copy… Read more »

January 13, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 1

Rameau’s take on Farrah Rochon lined up with a free promo for I’ll Catch You. Kimani’s haven’t worked for me in the past, but this was a wonderful book. Payton is a former attorney looking to build a new career in sports management. Cedric is an NFL player with an image problem…. Read more »

New Life by Bonnie Dee

January 8, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 1

It was sometime back in spring that I ran across Jessica’s guest review of this book over at Radish Reviews. A romance between a 24-year old brain injured janitor and a brand-new lawyer sounded interesting and, based on Jessica’s comments, it seemed like it might also be a thoughtful take… Read more »

Love Me Not by Reese Ryan

Love Me Not by Reese Ryan

January 3, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 11

I am going to start this off with a mea culpa. I really meant to have this review done for Monday, since I received this as an ARC and that was its release date, but I spent the week off playing video games and didn’t want to stop. So, here… Read more »
