Book Review – Shiver: 13 Sexy Tales of Humor and Horror with Giveaway

Shiver: 13 tales of humor and horror

Shiver: 13 Sexy Tales of Humor & Horror Romantic Comedy Anthology. Proceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital The Shiver Anthology is 13 fun and sexy stories by some of the top authors in romantic comedy. 100% of the proceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Some stories are funnier, some are sexier, none are horror, despite the title. Some stories totally stand alone, some are related to series but can stand alone, and others leave you salivating for the next book in the series. One thing I realized while reading the SHIVER anthology: even if I love the stories inside, I really dislike anthologies. I feel like I have to read every book, and I hate not knowing when the one I'm reading will end. That being said, there are some really cute, fun stories in the Shiver anthology  It took me all month to read this because I really needed the bite of a full length … (continue reading)

Book Review Perfect Ten by Michelle Craig with signed paperback giveaway

Perfect Ten Michelle Craig

Perfect Ten by Michelle Craig Erotic Romance Standalone Perfect Ten by Michelle Craig may be the most relatable book I have ever read. The heroine is a size 16 and completely down on herself. She has 2 skinny sisters and a skinny mom who are absolutely horrible people and taunt her about her weight. I sooooo get her! I have 2 skinny sisters and a skinny mom; though they aren't mean, and claim they want me to be healthy, they bring up my weight non-stop. My obsessive down-on-myself mentality is something I am working on, but not getting very far. My post here on my other blog, startingonmonday.com can illustrate more on that. I also have an aversion to books classified as BBW (Big Beautiful Women). I don't want to be a genre. I look around at book signings and notice that book readers tend to be a bit heavier than the population, and I fit right in with other readers. I like … (continue reading)

Audiobook Review – Until November by Aurora Rose Reynolds with signed paperback

Until November

Until November by Aurora Rose Reynolds Contemporary Romance. 1st in a series of interrelated Standalones. When Megan tells me I HAVE to read a book, I always listen if I can. We have the same taste, and she has never steered me wrong. I didn't listen to audiobooks a lot when I started this one (I just started to listen a lot more though) but even though I have the Until Series Box Set, I knew I was meeting Aurora Rose Reynolds at a book signing in Tampa (she will be at Wicked Book Weekend also), so I started this on the 4 hour drive to Tampa. I can't believe how fast the drive went! The last audiobook I read, the breathy narrator got on my nerves, so I was thrilled when I really loved the more down-to-earth normal narrator for Until November. And then she started speaking Asher's voice also...ugh, totally ruined his sex appeal with a really strong country accent. I tried to … (continue reading)

Book Review – Beta by Jasinda Wilder with signed paperbacks and Kindle Voyage giveaway

Beta Book Review

Beta by Jasinda Wilder (Alpha 2) Adult Contemporary. Must read Alpha first. I loved Alpha by Jasinda Wilder. It was one of the hottest books I've read this year, and I loved the commanding alpha presence of Valentine Roth. But Beta took it to another level! Beta took the sexy, erotic romance, and brought in lots of elements of some of Jasinda (and her husband's) more exciting (not THAT kind of exciting) and suspenseful, action packed reads, The Missionary and Captured. Beta does not stand alone, though it is a whole new storyline. The thing I really loved about Beta was the demonstration of love between Kyrie and Valentine. The one thing I had really wanted in Alpha was Valentine's point of view, though I was a bit worried, because often times when we see the vulnerability in the man's POV, they don't seem quite as alpha and commanding. I was thrilled to see that in Beta, Jasinda … (continue reading)
