Review: Torrid Exposure by Carla Coxwell


My review

April is a sweet girl who comes from money, but wants to do good on her own, but first after her parents put her through school – why? What if you did it yourself that would be so much better. April is two-faced on the money issue. I really understand why her parents is a bit “mad” at her.

But she gets a reality check when her “friend” Bennett lays out the facts. I just want to shake Aprils big sister

All those questions….. book 2 here I come.

I received an ARC and I am leaving a voluntary review.

A New Adult Romance Story

Review: Calculated Risk by Rachael Duncan

My review

A woman that was hurt by the past and a man that sees through her walls.

He tells her cheesy pickup lines but respects that she has a ring on her finger. I loved how stalkerish and obsessed he became for her, he chased her and was relentless in his chase. I could have done without the drama in the end though, why was that necessary?

A sweet story.

I thought the ring on my finger would do the trick and keep men away. All I wanted was to save my heart from shattering–again. The truth is, I’m not married. The ring was just a ploy–a ploy to keep me safe, protected from pain.

But then Marcus Riley came along with his goofy pick-up lines, and he saw right through the facade. He knew the truth, and he wanted me. God help me, I wanted him too–in so many ways. But love is a risk, a painful, scary risk. One I’m too afraid to take.


He’s the one risk worth taking.

But it just might come at a price.

My review

Series: your wish is my desire #1

A book about a genie and the forbidden word.

This is a sweet read about a genie and her road to getting a master. It is a good thing she has her best friend Aggie to look after her up in the office. A funny book with a great bit of sex.

Really looking forward to the next one and hoping that Aggie will have her own book

If you like your reads sweet and funny, with just a hint of steam, you’re in the right spot. Introducing paranormal steamy genie fantasy romances. Enjoy!


Rookie genie, Hayley-Jane Cook finds herself in a precarious position after becoming

separated from her original master, dot com tycoon, Harold J. Thurston the third.

With Harold presumed dead, and Hayley abandoned, Hayley must find herself a new master fast-or forever remain Bottled Up. Enter poor, unassuming, would-be groom, Dick Harddick, who’s made his way down to the beach to end it all rather than go through with marrying Emily Parsnip, his overbearing, soon-to-be bride- only to find himself unwittingly committed to Hayley-Jane, instead. Just what Dick needs, a second woman he doesn’t want. And has Hayley made a mistake? Has she prematurely propositioned Dick to be her new master? Is Harold really dead? Worse than all that, the unthinkable has happened, Hayley finds herself falling for Master number two. How can this be? It’s against Genie Law to fall in ‘forbidden-word’ with your Master. An act of genie treason, punishable by death.

What is a good law abiding genie to do?

Review: Just this once by J.H. Croix


My review

Series: Last Frontier Lodge #3

I have now read book 1 and book 3 and was not disappointed in either of them.

This was a heartbreaking and heartwarming story. Aidan has loved Becca for so long. Since that first meeting 10 years ago. He has held back so much, as Becca was broken. She had sworn off men due to her ex-fiancee.

Becca needed to work out her head and heart. She knew what her heart wanted but just couldn’t come to terms with it. Asian had to do the same without scaring Becca away.

It was good to see the rest of the gang, Gage, Garrett, Marley, Ginger, and all the others.

Love the characters and the setting. Also, love that none of them are overly cocky, but also sometimes insecure.

Fell in love with book 1 and that love kept going in book 3 and now I just need enough money to buy the rest of the series – money tree here I come

Welcome to the bestselling Last Frontier Lodge series – a sexy and steamy contemporary romance series set against the wilderness and beauty of small-town Alaska!

Becca Hamilton is a busy prosecutor who’s dedicated and passionate about her work. After being left high and dry days before her wedding several years ago, she promised herself she wouldn’t let her heart become vulnerable again. Yet, she didn’t count on temptation in the form of Aidan McNamara.

Aidan McNamara is many a woman’s dream—a tall, dark, sexy-as-hell military type who tends to save the day so often it’s annoying. He’s an ex-Navy SEAL and a close family friend. Becca has been quite successful at ignoring the spark that burns every time Aidan is near. Until he shows up and happens to save her evening. One scorching hot kiss on a rainy night, and Becca begins to question the limits she set for herself. She gambles she can allow herself just one night with Aidan.

Aidan has been half in love with Becca since the first time he laid eyes on her. He met her at a time when his life was one dangerous mission after another, so he couldn’t act on his desire. The years passed, and he watched Becca’s heart get broken and the walls go up around her. A chance encounter kindles hope in his heart. He can’t say no when she asks for one night, but he knows from the start he wants more.

Becca quickly discovers that ‘just once’ won’t even come close to satisfying her desire. She completely unprepared for the depth of feelings Aidan elicits. Forced to take a much-needed break from work, she decides a journey to Last Frontier Lodge in Alaska might give her some perspective and a long overdue adventure. A trip she hoped would clear her head only leaves her missing Aidan so much she can hardly stand it.

Aidan is a man of plans and action, but with Becca, he’s winging it every step of the way. When she takes off to Alaska, he finds himself following her even though it goes against his grain. Can Becca let down her guard long enough to let Aidan into her heart? Can Aidan convince her he’s worth more than just once?
