Cowboy Proud by @Kelli_Ireland

Rating: 2* Trope: Cowboy Chemistry: Low Boil One-Sentence Summary: A country boy and a city girl jump each other’s bones within hours of meeting Review: It’s been a long time since I read a cowboy romance and I was looking forward to this, especially since I enjoyed the first book in the series. Unfortunately it […]

The Heart's Game by Crista McHugh

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I have liked the other books in this series but my issue with this book mainly lay with the subject matter: girl agrees to surrogate for her brother, has sex after the insemination process, meets up with one-night stand again, guy learns she’s pregnant […]

Keeping Mr. Right Now by Robin Bielman

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I really loved Wild About Her Wingman but unfortunately this latest offering from Robin Bielman wasn’t for me. There was zero chemistry between Zane and Sophie and they just didn’t work for me as a couple.  The connection between them was forced and I […]

On the Surface by Kate Willoughby

There are good sports romances and there are cringeworthy sport romances.  Despite the number of 5* reviews saying otherwise, I strongly maintain that this is one of the latter. It is like the author has come up with a list of “scenes” you typically find in a romance and has set out to tackle them […]

Love a Little Sideways by Shannon Stacey

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This was a really big disappointment for me. It started so promising …… two people who have grown up together fall into bed together one day during a wedding expecting it to be a one-time thing but then being forced to confront their attraction […]

Recipe for Attraction by Gina Gordon

Received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Unfortunately there were a number of things I didn’t like about this book: 1. Carson offering to sleep with Neil every time he thought about racing to distract him.  This is the worst idea of a deal ever. 2. Carson’s relationship with her father.  […]

Tangling with the CEO by Annie Seaton

Received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really wanted to like this a whole lot more than I did as the summary looked really promising (and kudos for giving the heroine an unusual job (for a woman anyway)). However, I just didn’t ~feel~ anything.  The plot plodded alone but I […]

Lying in Bed by Jo Leigh

I got to admit that I was very excited when I read the summary for this book because “FBI Agents go undercover and have to pretend to be in a relationship” has been a trope I have always want to see explored on my favourite crime dramas between my favourite characters. Did it live up […]

This Heart of Mine by @SEPauthor

1* – if we are basing this book on that ~thing~ which happened near the beginning. That ~thing~ that should never ever ever be in ANY book, least of all a romance! The ~thing~ which is so horrifying it cannot be named and I prefer not to think about it. However, after that ~thing~, the […]

The President's Daughter by Annette Broadrick This book started out so well, like a blend of the Mandy Moore and Katie Holmes romcom films about president’s daughter but then we got halfway and two things happened: 1. The author tried to go a ‘romance suspense’ …. except there wasn’t any suspense. The ‘OMG the President’s family have been kidnapped’ plot […]
