"I want to live inside this book. I want to peel back the pages, climb inside and snuggle in its angsty goodness. This book is my Kryptonite. It has everything I love: Shakespeare, angst, humor, a slow build up, explosive chemistry, and the ending, oh lord, the ending! That ending was pure perfection."
With more lives at stake and games in motion, Ellie, Camden and Javier form an uneasy alliance that will take them from the treacherous streets of inner-city Mexico to the wilds of the Honduran jungles in order to find their freedom.

Oh, how I love Larissa Ione. Her books are a thrill ride and her unlikely heroes always leave a lasting impression. Revenant is no different. As the final book in the Lords of Deliverance/Demonica series, I think the author definitely saved the best for last, because Revenant is mad and he wants everyone to know it.

Still reeling from a broken relationship, Cordy is hired by an Aspen ad agency as a freelance consultant to help a local resort rework its image. After they meet, Cordy and Jack decide to spend the weekend together to explore their mutual attraction for one another with no… Continue

I read my first Kristen Ashley book earlier this year. It was a strange reading experience. I’m not normally one for the big, brawny alpha heroes, but something about her writing is really compelling, and I kept turning those pages, unable to put the book down. I joked that there was actual crack-cocaine woven into the pages and I had to keep going back to get my fix. So when this book was up for review, I jumped at it.
Based on Debbie Macomber’s book with the same name, Mr. Miracle is a Hallmark Channel original movie that premiered last night. Spoiler alert: I’m going to discuss the overall story but also point out some differences between the book and the movie version of Mr. Miracle. Harry Mills (Rob Morrow) is a Guardian Angel posing as an English teacher, and has been challenged to help Addie Folsom (Britt Irvin) find her path before Christmas or he won’t be able to stay on earth. Much like in the book, Harry’s innocence and lack of knowledge and understanding of humans reminds me so much of Clarence the angel from It’s a Wonderful Life. Luckily Harry has another angel, Celeste (Michelle Harrison) helping him learn the ropes. There are a few differences from the book to the movie.… Continue

I remember when I met Ella and Micha back in The Secret of Ella and Micha. Ella was a messed up kid who didn’t know how to deal with the grief and guilt she felt because of her mother’s death and Micha was her best friend, helping her to not drown. I had to wonder then if this couple would ever get their happily ever after. Lucky for us, Jessica Sorensen gave us their very special ever after.

"This series is actually a group of serial novellas (an e-serial) that I can promise you right now, will melt your panties. There’s a reason why the titles are words like, Wild, Hot, Hard, Real and Right. Let me break this down for you without giving too much away. (And all novellas are available now.)"
