The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

Out: Jan. 30, 2018


The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory book review:

Not sure where to begin with this book. This is the first romance novel I have ever finished. As a horror and nonfiction reader, I really ventured out of my comfort zone with The Wedding Date. And I am SO GLAD I DID!! I loved it!... read a full review by Just Another Bookworm



The Ones who Got Away by Roni Loren

The Ones who Got Away by Roni Loren book review

In the past, I had only watched a few documentaries regarding school shootings and I even remember vaguely, as an 8year-old the Columbine massacre making headlines all over the world. But, The Ones Who Got Away doesn't deal with a shooting, no, it dives right into the aftermath of such a tragedy. This book is a romance at heart, it delts with a vicious crime right away but it's still funny, flirty, sexy and playful. I enjoyed it immensely and couldn't put it down ... read a full review by Marilina The Reviewer



Down By Contact by Santino Hassell

Out: Jan. 16, 2018


Down By Contact by Santino Hassell book review: 

Down by Contact is insanely addictive! Like the first Barons book, Illegal Contact, Simeon and Adrián’s story is so compelling that you’ll want to be sure you have plenty of time to devour it in one sitting. Santino Hassell’s writing has power and passion and his characters are so vibrant that there’s no way this story won’t stick with you. I dare readers not to fall in love with Simeon from the start. He’s so charming that he lights up the page and it’s easy to see why almost every one he meets is instantly at ease with him... read a full review by Wit and Sin



Wallflower Most Wanted by Manda Collins

Out: Jan.16, 2018


Wallflower Most Wanted by Manda Collins book review:

Wallflower Most Wanted by Manda Collins is a fantastic read.  Ms. Collins has given us a book that is well-written.  She has loaded the book with amazing, lovable characters.  Sophia is an artist and overhears a threatening conversation.   The voices startle her and she falls over a small cliff.  Benedick is the local vicar and comes to her aid.  Their story is loaded with drama, sizzle, intrigue, action and humor... read a full review by debjonesdiem



Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath

Out: Jan. 30, 2018


Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath book review: With a mysterious painful beginning, I was sucked into the story right away. I took pleasure in the slow buildup and burn Heath provided, we get to know Mick and Aslyn (does start to feel a smidgen too slow as the anticipation for reveals starts to settle in). There are some scenes with Mick interacting with his family that helped fill out his character (and introduce future series heroes/heroines) and I wished there had been more for Aslyn... read a full review by WhiskeyintheJar Romance



The English Wife by Lauren Willig

Out: Jan. 09, 2018



The English Wife by Lauren Willig book review

Just a heads up, do not start this book unless you plan to stay up all night and read. This is one that you cannot start and put down to come back to later. You are going to be stuck until you know the absolute truth. Ms. Willig's writing reminds me of Daphne du Maurier... read a full review by A Tale of Two Pages
