Review: The Bookworm and the Beast – Charlee James

    This book is very much a fairy tale, with a sweet and innocent – but insecure – librarian who, with the help of a little Christmas magic, tames the savage (ok, more like rude and grumpy) beast.  It’s not a direct retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but contains elements that someone of a certain age (cough cough)…

Review: Infamous – Jenny Holiday

This book is, quite simply, adorable.  Both Jesse and Hunter are refreshingly sweet, kind, good people, and reading this book felt like curling up under a fluffy blanket. The two are, on the surface, complete opposites, but underneath are both caring, thoughtful men.  Jesse is your typical rock star, dressing in jeans and band T-shirts.  Hunter dresses impeccably, wearing a…

Review: A Hope Divided – Alyssa Cole

I thought I was prepared, as I picked this up immediately after finishing An Extraordinary Union, but this was an even more intense read.  I think it would be unfair to the historical record for any book involving the Civil War to not be uncomfortable reading at times.  But, oh my goodness, I loved this book.  And, let me get…

Review: An Extraordinary Union – Alyssa Cole

  This was much more suspenseful than I was expecting!  Even though I knew this was a romance, and would therefore have a happily-ever-after ending, it was hard at times to see how they were going to overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles in the way of their relationship. I liked Elle quite a bit, but found Malcolm a bit more…

Review: Bad Princess – Julianna Keyes

  “[I]t occurred to her that she might be a bad princess, but he was a sad prince.” Light and sexy, humorous and silly, this was a fun bit of book candy! Despite the fact that everyone (like, literally everyone) thinks the worst of her, Brinley is a likable and funny person, strong enough to fight to live her own…

Review: Journey Back to Christmas – Leigh Duncan

  When you think of a Hallmark movie, you think of something heartwarming, sweet, and a bit sappy. Apparently, that also applies to Hallmark books as well! I haven’t seen the movie, so I can’t say how true the book is to the movie (ha, it’s funny saying it that way for a change!). Hanna was quite sweet and positive,…

Review: Cherish Hard – Nalini Singh

  There is something just so wonderful about Nalini Singh’s contemporaries.  I love that they’re usually set in New Zealand, that rugby usually plays a part, and that both the hero and heroine will be strong and smart.  They also have a certain delightful quirky humor that I think of as distinctly Kiwi – think of much of the humor…

Review: Any Way You Slice It – Kristine Carlson Asselin

  Hockey?  Childhood friends to enemies to more than friends?  Sounds good to me!  I gobbled up this sweet and adorable book in an afternoon. Pen was a wonderful character.  I loved the descriptions of how she felt while skating, of how the rest of the world just fell away for her.  It made her determination to pursue hockey against…
