Review: Be My Valentine – Sean D. Young

Trigger warnings:  I’ve read one of Ms. Young’s McClendon series before (A Husband By New Year’s), and what I really loved about that book was that both the hero and heroine were hard-working, honest, strong, and generally good people.  While each book includes the sisters from the previous novels, they work perfectly fine as standalone.  I adored gentlemanly Patrick from the…

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: 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: A Husband by New Year’s – Sean D. Young

  “Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been using this list of character traits that I thought my perfect man should have. When I found men who fit that criteria, they would look good on paper, but weren’t at all what I thought they would be like[.]” What a lovely surprise!  I’m usually not a fan of romances where one…
