The Tycoon's Convenient Bride… and Baby by Shoshanna Evers

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review From the summary I really thought I would like this, after all I do like the ‘fake relationship’ trope.  However, I knew from the first chapter that it wasn’t going to be the awesome read I hoped it would be – Mack arrives at […]

His Game, Her Rules by Charlene Groome

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This book contained two things which I haven’t seen in a contemporary romance novel in a long time: 1) The Present Tense I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this …. all I know is that it didn’t spoil the book as much […]

Tempting the Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon

Yes 1* and yes I resorted to skimming the last third of the book just so I could get to the end and write this review. I can honestly say that there was nothing in this book that I enjoyed, nothing. Instead, here are some of the things I really didn’t enjoy: 1. The name […]

Playing for Keeps by Kate Donovan

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I usually make it to the end of even the most disappointing romance novel but reading this one was so torturous I had to resort to some fast scanning of the last third of the book. I really don’t want to go through and […]

Flag on the Play by Lois Kasznia

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Oh.  Dear. I really wish I could find something positive to say about this book, especially since the summary made it sound like it was going to be a decent sports romance. Unfortunately the reality was it wasn’t even a sports romance teetering on […]

Wife in Name Only by Hayson Manning

I really didn’t want to slate the debut book of an author but there’s no easy way to say this: this book was rubbish. Rory was a jackass and one of the most unlikeable heroes of any romance I’ve read and whilst I was willing to give Zoe the benefit of the doubt, as soon […]

About Last Night by Ruthie Knox

Here’s some advice to fellow Brits: avoid this like the plague! Yes, we all totally talk about our “Grandsires”. I am sorry but if the Queen doesn’t even use an old-dated term, it is a sure sign that that word was retired ages ago. There was some nonsense about Greenwich being out in the suburbs […]

Nobody's Baby But Mine by @SEPauthor

This book contained a fairytale romance – NOT! I mean the set up in many romance books requires a stretch of imagination, and is sometimes downright bizarre, but can any beat this for offending anyone with any sense of right and wrong? Chauvinistic Footballers ask Slutty Waitress to find a classy hooker to be their […]

The Christmas Inn by Stella Maclean

I went into this with high expectations as the plot seemed like something right up my street. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered the writing to be pretty rudimentary and the storyline to be boring and repetitive. Marnie goes back and forth through deciding whether to stop doing the questionnaire or not for her brother […]

Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood

1.5* I was really disappointed by this book and the rating I gave it reflected this. The cover and the blurb was so promising and yet it failed to live up to its promise in every way. ‘Suspense’ there was hardly any. Yes, there was the plot that could have supplied the suspense but it […]
