Review: Ante Up (Down & Dirty, #3)

Ante Up (Down & Dirty, #3)Ante Up by Moira Rogers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The final book in the trilogy.
Well, novella, I guess I’d call it, instead of a book.

It was well-done, and there was some action but it was rushed, like it was an afterthought.

I like a story with bite, and this had it, but it was still just too short.

Review: Colters’ Promise (Colters’ Legacy, #4)

Colters' Promise (Colters' Legacy, #4)Colters’ Promise by Maya Banks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, I feel a little weird reviewing this.
I’ve read the whole series and well, Angie {Smut Book Club} has me embracing my love of a little bit of smut.
The series is not for the faint of heart. If you’re not into erotica, with pretty explicit descriptions, this isn’t the book for you. Also, if you’re not a fan of multiple partners or BDSM, you won’t like this either. You have been warned.

It’s not as hot and spicy as the previous books. I think, honestly, there were only 3 sex scenes. If I’m going to be honest, I actually skipped over it. I actually yawned. It was sort of “Um, okay” for me. The previous ones weren’t like that, at all.

Review: Envy by JR Ward

Envy (Fallen Angels, #3)Envy by J.R. Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s a lot of hints of things in this that might be answered in Raptured, which I’m excited to read.

I loved the duality of the characters. Not Devina. She, eh, I could do without her constant innuendo. She honestly just annoys the crap out of me. I’d like to take that crystal dagger and just stab her between the eyes.

I’m confused on the angels, though, still. Not Eddie and Adrian. The others, like Colin and the like. What is their purpose? Why do we have to keep hearing about them?

Review: Pregnant by the Warrior

Pregnant by the Warrior (Harlequin Historical, #978)Pregnant by the Warrior by Denise Lynn

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It was “okay”.
It was a fine read, but it seemed to drag. I found myself skipping. I’ll admit it is a re-read, but I think I skipped then, too.

Review: Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage (Highland Pleasures, #2)

Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage (Highland Pleasures, #2)Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a re-read. The first read, I didn’t read Book 1, so some parts didn’t make sense. Now they do.

I will be honest and say that I’m glad to see Fellowes in the book. He was the unknown brother from Ian’s story.

Isabella and Mac are also from the first book, who are separated married couple. Mac is a painter, and he’s being impersonated. Isabella is the one who recognized that the painting that claimed to be done by Mac was in fact not done by him. A wife would recognize that, even an estranged one.

It led to mysteries and another attempted murder, but it was a good book, with some sadness, when they recall the miscarriage of their little boy, their first child.

Review: The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Highland Pleasures, #1)

The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Highland Pleasures, #1)The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was interesting.
That’s honestly all I can say.

There’s mystery, murder, an attempted murder.
Madness, love, and all that.

But it was unique in a way. Something different I haven’t tried.

Review: Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis

Forever and a Day (Lucky Harbor, #6)Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love going back to Lucky Harbor. So much so that I’ll be re-reading the series, just for the heck of it 😀

Anyways, on to the review of the actual novel.

Once again, I’m sucked in, straight from the beginning.
There’s heartbreak, an adorable little guy, and even a tiny little dog with the moniker of Tank.
Trust me. Tank has earned his name 😉

It’s a great story, full of love, laughter, and a few tears.

If you love the classic romance storyline, you’ll love this book.
