Review: On the Brink of Passion – Tamsen Parker

Trigger warnings: death of spouse and partner, grief, panic attacks This is the last book of the Snow & Ice Games series, loosely based on the winter Olympics.  While it’s part of series, each book can be read as a stand-alone, though, honestly, they’re awesome, so just read them all!  Spoilers for the book below, as there were some aspects…

Review: Forbidden Stranger – Megan Hart

This is the third and last book in the Protector series, and boy, is it a wild ride.  This can’t be read as a standalone, and, fair warning, this review will contain spoilers for the first two books in the series. “It’s easy to blame someone else for the mistakes you chose to make, but it’s a lot harder to…

Review: Wicked Attraction – Megan Hart

“’You’re in a cage,’ the shadow man tells her without moving into the light. ‘I want to get you out of it. I want to save you.’ ‘I’m the one who does the saving.’ The man’s voice fades as he speaks. ‘Not this time . . .’” This book is the second in The Protector series, and shouldn’t be read…

Review: Fire on the Ice – Tamsen Parker

Man, I was just so disappointed by this book.  It’s the fourth book in the Snow & Ice Games series, each of which can be read as a stand-alone.  I was particularly impressed by the second book, Seduction on the Slopes, which was m/m, so I guess I was hoping that the f/f book would also be great.  Unfortunately, while…

Review: On the Edge of Scandal – Tamsen Parker

Finally, the hockey romance!  I’ve read a lot of hockey romances, but this is the first, I think, that had a female hockey player.  This is the third in the Snow & Ice Games series, but each can be read as a standalone. Bronwyn is a college hockey player who’s made it on to the Olympics team for US women’s…

Review: Seduction on the Slopes – Tamsen Parker

There’s something just so fun about opposites attract romances.  These characters are polar (hehe) opposites in many ways, and the alternating POVs really help understand where each character is coming from.  Crash is a “goofy little bastard,” while Miles is a “cantankerous prig.”  But the thing that forces them together is their love for skiing – either man would do…

Review: Love on the Tracks – Tamsen Parker

Every four years, winter athletes from around the world gather together for two weeks to compete in the …. Snow & Ice games!  Wait, what did you think I was going to say? “’Think you can do that? Look like you’re into me?’ She bites the corner of her lip and looks up at the ceiling. ‘I don’t know. You’re…

Review: Dangerous Promise – Megan Hart

I adore scifi romance, but I’m not a big fan of the “women kidnapped by aliens” genre, so it can sometimes be slim pickings.  The blurb reminded me of the Deus Ex game series, which is a personal favorite, so I was very interested.  This is, at heart, a scifi version of a “bodyguard and client” romantic suspense, and is…

Review: Take the Lead – Alexis Daria

Okay, I know I posted the review for Dance with Me,the second book in the series, before this one, but I wanted to get that one reviewed in time for publication. Look, I have like zero interest in Dancing with the Stars or Strictly Come Dancing or, honestly, pretty much any reality show besides The Great British Bake-Off.  So, I’m…

Review: Dance with Me – Alexis Daria

My Review: “Who are you if you’re not a dancer?” I enjoyed the second entry in the Dance Off series even more than the first! I loved that they were already friends with sometimes benefits when the story started, and things are accelerated by a mishap that ends up with Natasha moving in (temporarily) with Dimitri. Only, neither is content…
