I feel like it’s a little unfair for me to review a Roni Loren book because I love all of her books. Caught Up in You is no exception. There are some writers that make weaving a great tale full of drama and sinful ecstasy seem effortless. In my opinion, Roni is one of them.

As I noted in an earlier post, I am participating in Conquer the Bookstacks, and in an attempt to a) Get to my Goodreads goal so I can extend it and b) take care of some reading that I needed to get done for NetGalley. I like to have the books read and reviews up just before or right after a book releases. I figure it’s the least I can do, especially if I really enjoyed a book.
Here’s a challenge I can really sink my teeth into! I’ve been following a few book blogs that are running a challenge this month called Conquer the Book Stacks. For some, this means thinning out the To Read list to a (more) manageable pile and then digging into whittle that list down. For some, it means a restriction on acquiring new books (unless you’re visited by the book fairy). For some, it means getting serious about that GoodReads 2013 Reading challenge and knocking out a significant portion of reading. Whatever that means to you, I hope you’ll hop on the train! My goal for this challenge is to actually complete […]
What begins as an erotic game soon escalates to a power play that blurs the line between pleasure and pain. Even as she capitulates to James’s sensual demands, Karina craves more. She wants his heart, his soul. She wants his love . . . and she’ll break all the rules to get it.
Not Until You Part by Roni Loren My rating: 5 of 5 stars This series is just fantastic. I’ve held off doing a review because I wanted to read the whole story first. I’ve NEVER taken this long to read a Roni Loren novel but I’m so glad this was a serial. It’s been nice to return week after week and take another juicy bite of this shiny red apple of a story. Cela is such a great, down to earth heroine– a character I can identify with and sink my teeth into. And while I do love adorable, rock dude Pike, I ADORE Foster. He’s so… Mr. Darcy. Brusque, […]
I’ve not made a ton of tangible progress on the book so far. Still in the beginning steps of planning out the story, the beats, making sure I have all of the elements there.
Raveled is a fast paced, plot driven, complicated, twisty ride from beginning to end. McAneny uses a familiar, conversational, comedic tone that makes reading go quickly and easily. There were a few times I thought I had solved the mystery, and I was wrong. Once it began to unfold and the pieces started to come together, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
As I announced earlier this week, the countdown has begun to my 40th birthday and my gift to myself is completion of my novel (no matter what state it is in, I want to say I finished it). I’ve been skirting it long enough… the voices are clearly not going to go away. This weekend my task is to set a side a space in my house for writing.. away from my bed (where I have one of those lap desks and have written just about everything I’ve ever written… crazy, eh? But it’s comfy, and if the ‘writing area’ doesn’t work out, I can always go back to that. I just want to set myself up in a distraction free zone. So I’ll be working on that.
In 8 months, exactly eight months from today, I will turn the glorious age of 40. And I have decided what I want from myself. I want to finish my novel. Crazy, I know. I’ve been fighting with it for a long time. I’ve put it away for more than a year. I decided I was done with it. But it won’t. go. away. So I decided that no matter how much of a steaming pile of excrement it is… I am going to finish it. When I turn 40, I want to be able to say I accomplished that one thing. When it’s done, we’ll see where it is, […]
Obviously I need to read Sandra Brown’s entire backlog of romantic suspense, because WOW.
I first discovered her years and years ago when I read Alibi. I borrowed it from my mother and promptly forgot about Sandra Brown. Years later she popped up with Rainwater and since it was historical fiction, I snapped it up, read it, enjoyed. I read her next release, Low Pressure and liked it. So when NetGalley had this one up for grabs, I requested it. I will never regret it!
