It’s no secret in the publishing world that Amy Lane can write. The topic doesn’t matter, because she will write an angst filled romance with whatever is at hand and just make it shine.

Chase is a young man with so much baggage my heart ached for him. At first glance it might seem as exaggeration, but as you keep on reading, seeing his struggle and his need … Continue reading

I always try to find something good about a book, because I really don’t like handing out one star ratings. That is mostly the reason why this one got two stars from me.

I wasn’t sure how to classify this book, BDSM lite perhaps.  The focus is more on Carl, the sub, and his inability to remember his first night with his Dom, Miles.  Miles is one of the owners of the company, SKIN, that Carl works for.  Carl has been secretly lusting after Miles since he started there.   As our story begins, Carl wakes up in a stranger’s bed … Continue reading

The premise of this book was one I usually enjoy – reunions, second chances, getting back to where you where.  With this book, however, I felt it was not done acceptably.  Brody and Dale are best friends, first loves, high school sweethearts.   They are in it for the long haul, or so Brody thinks right up until the minute that Dale up and leaves him, joining the Air Force … Continue reading

This book was absolutely amazing.  The story tore me up emotionally but it was well worth the roller coaster ride.  The story revolves around three young men from when they were in their late teens up to the present at twenty-two.  Jamie and Matt have been best friends for most of their lives.  Jamie’s parents divorced when he was 15 and the bullies in school were always making … Continue reading

So I am not a fan of the cover.  It implies fluff and there is nothing fluffy about this novel.  Lucy Valentine comes from a long line of magically gifted matchmakers but an accident when she was a teenager scrambled her gift.  So instead of being able to read auras and find people’s soul mates she can find your lost keys.  Problems with the family leave Lucy in charge of … Continue reading

I enjoyed the pairing of Morgan, a gentle giant of a shark, and Alexis, the sex demon. Alexis was severely burned in the previous book in this series and is filled with low self esteem and  self doubt. After all, who is he if not a beautiful incubus who’s main talent is sex? Well, Morgan knows that there is much more to Alexis than that and his love and support never waiver. … Continue reading
