Review: Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh

Review: Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh

I am a huge, huge fan of author Nalini Singh, with my favorites being her Psy-Changeling and Guild Hunters series of paranormal romances. The announcement of the Rock Kiss series was a bit of a surprise since she doesn’t usually write straight contemporary. While contemporary isn’t my favorite genre, I knew that if Nalini Singh was writing it, I had to read it. If anyone could turn this paranormal/urban fantasy lover into a contemporary convert, it would be Singh.

Review: Fiancée For Hire by Tawna Fenske

Review: Fiancée For Hire by Tawna Fenske

Ever since I read Marine for Hire (Front and Center #1) , I was hoping for a Mac and Kelli book. I was so excited to see that it was coming out that I pre-ordered it. This is big, since I don’t pre-order many books. When the book arrived, I started reading it immediately. I would have read it all night if I hadn’t had an early morning training. As it was, I stayed up too late and then felt like a kid again as I tried sneaking in chapters during the breaks and slows parts of the training. And when I did finally finish reading it, I went back and re-read all my favorite parts.

Review: Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

Review: Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

Recently, I have been in a reading slump. I start books and don’t finish them. I have trouble with finding a connection to characters and I wonder if I will ever finish a book again. I reached out to a friend and asked her to recommend a favorite book. We have similar taste in books, particularly in the types of hero/heroines we like. Her response – Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren, author of the Beautiful Series. As part of full disclosure, I have not read the Beautiful Series. Something about that series never appealed to me.
