Review for Desired by Stacey Kennedy (3 out of 5 stars)

This is a good book, but the reason I only gave it 3 stars is more because I think I'm over BDSM stories, but the story and sex scenes are still good.  I don't really enjoy BDSM in a club setting; I like stories that have private kink.  Big group sex scenes just don't do it for me, and this book is all about the club and spectators.  I also felt like it was a bit creepy at the beginning.  I do think most readers who like BDSM will enjoy this book and the series as a whole, and I really liked the side story.  I do wish there was a bit more story; there was way more BDSM stuff than actual story, and I found it to be a bit much.  I get it's a BDSM book, but I don't only want to read about BDSM; this books goes through the "rules" quite thoroughly, and if my memory is correct the other books in the series tend to do the same thing.  So, although I didn't quite love this story; I think plenty of readers will; readers that enjoy BDSM and lots of sex talk.

Review for Shatter by Erin McCarthy (3 out of 5 stars)

I really love this series, but I didn't love this one as much as I love the other books in the series.  It's not because it's not good writing, or the characters are bad, but I just don't really enjoy books about accidental pregnancies. That's the main reason I didn't connect with this book, and although it was dealt with nicely in this book; I still don't enjoy the topic.  I really like that there are glimpses of the previous characters from the earlier books in the series, and still really like McCarthy's writing.  I'm sure there will be plenty of readers who don't mind the storyline because the book is still a good one.  I really liked Jon and Kylie, and they were really good together; very sweet.  I would recommend to anyone who would like to read this book, to definitely read the previous books in the series.  The series as a whole is really good, and I love McCarthy's books!

Hideaway Cove by Anna Sullivan (5 out of 5 stars)

I love this series! I think I liked the first book a bit more, but I still really liked this one.  The only thing I don't like is how stubborn people are, but I get that is needed to cause the issues in the story.  I enjoy the mystery aspect, and I really like that the characters from the first book are in this book as well.  It does start off a bit slowly, but once it gets to some of the main plots it starts to pick up.  I liked Holden and all his southern charm, and I think he is really good with Jessi.  Definitely read the first book in the series before you read this one; since it's a continuation of the first book, but with different main characters.  The romance is sweet, and it's kind of surprising how far the author goes in the end.  It's definitely a good series, and keeps entertained till the very end!

Review for Dark Paradise by Angie Sandro (5 out of 5 stars)

This was really good! After I finished I bought the next 2 books right away because I didn't want to wait to find out what happens.  I love the setting; the grittiness of being in the bayou was written excellently, and it really brought me; as the reader, into the story.  I really liked the characters too; they weren't stock characters and they had personality to them.  I was a bit pissed at how Mala was starting to act towards the end, but it didn't deter from my enjoyment of the story.  The storyline was lots of fun, and kept me interested all the way till the end.  I finished it in no time, and I couldn't put it down!  I loved the mystery and supernatural elements; they really made the story intriguing.  I will say one thing; I'm really tired of man sluts, but I really enjoyed the story, so I will put up with it if I have to.  Great start to what I hope will be a fabulous series!

Review for The Millionaire Affair by Jessica Lemmon (3 out of 5 stars)

hmmm...This just didn't really click with me.  I have to go a bit spoiler, so stop reading now if you don't want to know some of what goes on. I think this didn't click with me because I'm really tired of the whole lets have sex with no strings of course and everything will be fine.  I'm pretty much over that whole storyline, and as I was reading this I found myself wanting to skip over a lot of it.  And the storyline later just didn't do it for me.  I went with 3 stars because I still liked the characters and I did enjoy the previous book in the series, so I will continue to read the next books in the series.

Review for Broken by Lauren Layne (5 out of 5 stars)

I really liked this book! This is the first book in this series I've read, but I'm definitely going to read the first in the series and any of the future books.  I liked both of the characters and I think they both have a lot of heart, and they were really great for each other.  I like the premise for the story, and the way it played out.  I did hope for more for the ending, but I still enjoyed it.  It was a very quick read for me and it kept me interested till the end. I also like that even though Paul was tortured; he wasn't a man slut, it's really nice for a change; I get really sick of those type of guys in books, so Broken was a very good change.  I like the writing style, so I'm definitely excited for the next in the series!

Review for Inn at Last Chance by Hope Ramsay (3 out of 5 stars)

I really liked the beginning of this book, but then it became a different kind of in a sort of sudden fashion, so that through me and took me out of the story.  The problem I had is somewhat of a spoiler, but I feel it needs to be mentioned so be forewarned that I am going to write about a slight spoiler, so stop reading now if you do not want that.  Ok, so I actually really enjoy Jane Eyre, and at first I wasn't minding some of the references, but then it just became too much and it really took me out of the story.  I was so enjoying the mystery and the spooky aspect of the story. I didn't, however, enjoy some of Gabe's actions to deter Jenny, but I was still interested in the story.  I liked the romance; what little of it there was, and I liked Gabe and Jenny together; I thought they were sweet and she was good for him.  I just really wish the ending wasn't mainly Jane Eyre; it really came out of left field for me.  I also wanted Gabe to actually show Jenny he really wanted her; instead of just always giving up; he should have gone after her in the end.  With that being said I still enjoyed this book and I like some of the other books in this series, and I sometimes find Ramsay's writing a bit tame, but I still enjoy the stories, so I will continue to read other books by Ramsay.

Review for No In Between by Lisa Renee Jones (3 out of 5 stars)

I didn't love this one as much as I loved the other books in the series so far.  Nothing really happens in this book, and Sara was starting to annoy me.  Her obsession with Rebecca is becoming old; I think there was even a time when she was being intimate that she's thinking about her, I don't know it's just starting to get to me.  Plus I didn't really enjoy the sex scenes; they felt forced, and non genuine.  I really like Chris and Sara together, but I want them to make greater leaps, and it's just not happening enough for me.  Plus some of the things Sara does get on my nerves, and a lot of the side characters bother me.  A lot of the characters, including some main characters,  just seemed weak and they made a lot of stupid decisions.  With that being said, I still enjoy the mystery and it's my hope that it will be resolved soon, and the characters continue to grow; including Mark.  I also want Sara to realize she doesn't know it all, and to stop getting involved in other people's business and tell them how they feel.  I will read the next book in the series though because I have high hopes for the next book, and I have loved the previous books.  This book felt like filler to me, so I expect the next to be terrific.  I still recommend this series.
