The writing is real, true to life and envelops the reader in Pecan’s world in a way few writers manage to accomplish. I would not hesitate to recommend this title and I plan to pick up the next book in the series.
Oh em gee. Why do I torture myself with Novellas?! They’re just too short and I always want more and this novella was no different. This is my first male/male romance (of course I have read the menage romance/novella but something about having Evan in the story makes it different than a male/male) and I must say that Roni ‘eased me into it’. I can’t imagine the depth of skill it takes to write a scintillating sex scene from a point of view that you have never experienced… but as we well know, Roni is one of the best at writing scenes that make you feel like you’re in the room.
I read this in a few hours while sitting on the beach. It was exactly what I needed and hit the spot for a cute love story that centers around a family run dance studio.
I have to say that I am enjoying this neat series from Harper Miller, all centered around a steamy little website called KinkySingles.com. The first story, Ironic was BLISTERING hot and Renewed is no different. From the cover to the epilogue, I was drawn into the inevitable union of Tanya and Kenji. Also, Miller is reminding me of my affinity for Asian men. Kenji sounds.. delightful. And by delightful I mean DAMN HOT.
CCJ has very quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her easygoing style doesn’t hinder her ability to breathe life into three dimensional characters and realistic situations. What I’ve always loved about Christina’s books is that I feel like they could be you or me or the gal next door. I can relate and commiserate and there is always a happy ending for a person that looks like me.
So. So. SOOOOOOOOOO. Oh my goodness. If you love historical, multicultural romance, get your hands on this release when it comes out! Five beautifully written stories set in a pivotal moment of African American history. You really can’t afford to skip this anthology!
Dolen’s first novel was so vivid, I had dreams about it. Balm is a wonderful, welcome followup to Wench.
Laney is trying desperately to hold on to the fairy tale she thought she was living. She and Mads are on child number two. Mads is on the verge of great success with his furniture design company. Laney is at home with two young children and feels alone, on edge, desperate for a break. And it seems like everyone sees it but Mads.
Super geeky, super sexy, slightly twisted
Nice Girls Don’t Ride is such a delightful departure from Roni’s usually darker, sexier prose but it’s not devoid of her skill and talent at drawing you into the story and making you feel like you’re in the room. The sex scenes are red-hot, but the more intimate scenes where Natalie and Monroe are talking and learning about each other and beginning to have ~feelings~ for each other, despite the fact that he’s about to leave town for three months… that’s what I love about reading a romance. Beginnings are beautiful to me!
