Riding the Track by Kara Ripley: Book Review

Riding the Track by Kara Ripley is a sweet and sexy novella about taking chances, stepping outside your comfort zone, and trying new things. Clara and her recent ex-boyfriend had planned a trip together that was not exactly what Clara would normally be into. But when he cheats, and she leaves, she decides to go on the trip to spite him, forgetting that she really had no interest in going

Code Of Conduct by Cheyenne Blue: Book Review

Code Of Conduct by Cheyenne Blue combines two of my favorite themes flawlessly: sports and workplace romance.  Cheyenne Blue takes us into the world of professional tennis and shows us the passion and the conflict that can develop between the players and the officials. Genevieve “Viva” Jones was a great tennis player in her prime. She even has a grand slam win to her name. Then an overzealous lineswoman, Gabriela

Lethal Care by Claire McNab and Katherine V Forrest: Book Review

Lethal Care by Claire McNab and Katherine V Forrest is the seventeenth book and final chapter in the Detective Inspector Carol Ashton Mystery Series. A promotion is supposed to bring a great deal of joy into your life and put a spring in your step, right? That would probably be the case for someone else but not for Detective Inspector Carol Ashton. Her recent promotion to Chief Inspector comes with

Saving Grace by Jennifer Fulton

Saving Grace by Jennifer Fulton is the second book in her Moon Island series. It can be read as a standalone, since it follows a new couple and shares enough of the events of the first book that you won’t be confused. Grace Ramsay is on Moon Island for one reason—to evaluate whether it would be a good purchase for a company that’s looking for a place to dump chemical

Crazy For You by Harper Bliss

Crazy For You by Harper Bliss is the eighth book in her Pink Bean series. Like the rest of the series, this book can be read as a standalone, but people who wondered what happened to Jessica at the end of Love Without Limits will especially want to pick it up! Jessica Porter’s life has been on hold for a few months while she’s been recovering from a surgery. When

My Forever Hero by Karen Legasy

My Forever Hero by Karen Legasy is a story about trusting your instincts, accepting who you really are and following your heart. Marlee Nevins envisioned a vacation filled with sun, sand and sea. Australia seems like the perfect get away from her stressful job in Canada. For Marlee, surfing on the lovely beaches for weeks on end is a dream come true until a surfing mishap throws Marlee’s world into

Love Without Limits by Harper Bliss

Love Without Limits by Harper Bliss is the seventh book in her Pink Bean series. It’s also the first book in this series that brings back one of the previous couples as the main characters. You don’t necessarily have to have read Everything Between Us to pick up Love Without Limits, but I’d recommend you do mostly because I adored that book and think everyone should read it.

Fenced-In Felix by Cheyenne Blue: Book Review

Fenced-In Felix by Cheyenne Blue is the third book in her Girl Meets Girl series. While you don’t need to read the first two books because it’s a standalone romance, I’d recommend reading them anyway just because they’re wonderful! Felix Jameson is working hard to expand her campground, adding cabins that will bring in extra money as they draw in backpackers and other tourists looking for an authentic Australian outback
