{Review} 72 Hours by @BellaJewel73 @StMartinsPress

  72 Hours is a romantic suspense novel from author Bella Jewel. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Jewel and I have to say I really dug it. The suspense part was a little heavier than the romance part, but there was a still a kind of cool concept second chance romance featured in this one. All in all, if you are a fan of creepy suspense/thriller novels, you will not want to miss 72 hours. Lara and Noah used to date but they wouldn’t call each other friends now. But they are unwittingly picked to star in this creepy, and sick and creepy guy’s twisted version of a game. A life or death game. I was so icked out by the villain in this book. He is someone that will keep you up at night. That is the level of his twisted desires. I loved Lara and Noah. I thought they were really strong characters and they stood up well to the masterful suspense plot-line…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Firestorm by @Donna_Grant

{Review+Giveaway} Firestorm by @Donna_Grant

Firestorm is an adult paranormal romance by Donna Grant. It is the tenth book in the dark kings series. I have not read any of the previous books in the series, but they can each be read as standalones. I do have to say, I feel like this series would be better read in order. Yes, this book can work as a standalone, but I feel like I would have a much better idea of the world if I had read the previous books. That being said, I did really enjoy Firestorm. I found it to be sexy and a great read. Firestorm starts out with our main character, an archeologist, discovering a dragon skeleton. Right away I was hooked into the story. I loved Faith and I really, really loved Dimitri. I admired how determined Faith was, and I really enjoyed the back and forth between her and Dimitri. Dimitri is super interesting himself. I loved seeing his inner struggle with the human v. dragon side and the way… Read more »

{Review} Must Love Wieners by Casey Griffin @cgriffinauthor @SMPRomance

Must Love Wieners is the first in a new series , called Rescue Dog Romance by Casey Griffin. I am a huge dachshund lover, so I couldn’t possibly turn down this book. (I have three dachshunds at home- a Black and Tan named Harry, A red long haired name Ron and our newest addition to the clan, a little puppy (who just turned one a few days ago!) named Albus Severus. So that should tell you that I love Harry Potter and I love Wiener dogs!) I was initially thinking it would be something along the lines of Must Love Dogs, but with Dachshunds. I was kind of right, but also kind of wrong. I didn’t anticipate the mystery element surrounding Must Love Wieners. The mystery in this book was a little slow going, but once it got started man oh man did it pick up in intensity fast! I really enjoyed the msytery/stalker/arsonist that all come to play in this story. It was much more high stakes than I… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Miss Match by Laurelin McGee @laurelinpaige @StMartinsPress

{Review+Giveaway} Miss Match by Laurelin McGee @laurelinpaige @StMartinsPress

Oh, how I love a good match maker story! And Miss Match is a great one. I loved the back and forth head butting/banter between Andrea and Blake. Miss Match is told in dual narrative between Blake and Andrea. Sometimes it was hard to decide whose point of view it was, but I always caught on pretty quickly. Miss Match is a perfect summer read- funny, light and of course, a great romance. Andrea is strong willed and very intuitive and perceptive. I really like people with those qualities, and Andrea is no exception. Or maybe I should call her Drea like Blake seemed hell bent on doing at first. (I thought that was super cute.) And along with the inevitable (oh come on, you so knew it was going to happen!) romance between her and Blake, we also get a really great sibling relationship with her and Lacey. I loved watching the siblings go at it back and forth. She reminded me of me and my sister sometimes. If… Read more »
