Review of “Christmas in Lucky Harbor” by Jill Shalvis

I think I’ve mentioned my love of all things Jill Shalvis and Lucky Harbor, but just in case I haven’t–I LOVE JILL SHALVIS AND LUCKY HARBOR!!! Phew.  Now that that’s out of my system, let’s get down to business.  Christmas in Lucky Harbor is a compilation of the first two books in the series (Simply Irresistible and The …

Review of “My Kind of Wonderful” by Jill Shalvis

I am a notoriously slow reader, stemming from the fact that I hated books as a kid.  The closest I came to reading was watching Wishbone on PBS.  I figured if a story wasn’t good enough to be on television or made into a movie, then it wasn’t worth the time it took me to read …

Review of “Controlled Burn” by Shannon Stacey

OMG.  I LOVED this book.  LOVED it.  There aren’t enough capital letters in the world to discuss just how much I loved this book.  It was my very first Shannon Stacey book (I KNOW) and it did not disappoint, which is saying a lot since I’ve had it on my TBR pile since Netgalley granted …

Review of “His New Jam” by Shannyn Schroeder

Last month, I discovered the Hot and Nerdy Series by Shannyn Schroeder and was hyped to find the next two books in the series were coming out in November and December.  Unfortunately, that meant I needed to wait to read the copies sent to me by Netgalley.  When I finally sat down with His New Jam, …

Review of “Status Update” by Annabeth Albert

This was my second foray into LGBT romance–the first was The Belle vs. the BDOC from 90’s Playlist Anthology.  I did not enjoy that novella.  I was a little afraid to pick up another LGBT themed book, but the description on Netgalley had me excited about this book, so much so that I was chomping at the …

Review of “What Happens Under the Mistletoe” by Various

What Happens Under the Mistletoe is the new Christmas anthology featuring novellas by Sabrina Jeffries, Karen Hawkins, Candace Camp, and Meredith Duran.  I’ve heard of all of these authors, but I’ve only read Candace Camp.  Each book involves the magic of Christmas and mistletoe.  As with all anthologies, some of the novellas are stronger (Sweetest …

Review of “Need You for Always” by Marina Adair

Before finding this book on Netgalley, I’d never heard of Marina Adair, and that’s a shame.  If you read my Video of the Day post yesterday, you know that I had a pretty big issue with Need You for Always, but once I was able to get passed it, I was also able to enjoy the …

Review of “I’ll Never Let You Go” by Mary Burton

The other day, I stepped out of my comfort zone with a romantic suspense novel written by an author I’ve never heard of before.  If you read my post about why I usually just read historical romance novels, then you know why I don’t usually do that.  I’ve just gotten a little to cynical when …

Review of “Christmas Cottage/Ever After” by Samantha Chase

It is that time of year again–the days are getting shorter, the sun starts setting before Jeopardy is over, the new television season is starting, and Christmas books are coming out.  For me, and other people who use Netgalley, Christmas books start coming out much earlier than they do for other people.  I already reviewed …
