Review: Wicked Caprice

Review: Wicked CapriceWicked Caprice by Anne Mather My rating: 3 of 5 stars Okay… more like 2.5 stars. This is one of those books that I had on my TBR for a while and was hesitant to pick up because the title is boring and kind of vague. Wicked Caprice. Wicked = Mischievous or playfully malicious; caprice... Read More »

Review: The Aloha Bride

Review: The Aloha BrideThe Aloha Bride by Emma Darcy My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m a huge fan of groveling. I don’t think there’s enough groveling in romance novels these days. I think people in Romancelandia are just way too forgiving. “So you slept with my step-mother, bankrupted my father, stole my virginity, saddled me with a... Read More »

Review: Stolen Summer

Review: Stolen SummerStolen Summer by Anne Mather My rating: 2 of 5 stars I’m a huge fan of the “older woman, younger man” trope. With the proliferation of “older dude, young ingénue” pairings in Harlequin Presents—dude, you’re 35, she barely turned 18 last week—it’s nice when the older ladies (heaven forbid, past the age of 25… *shudder*)...

Review: Wife to a Stranger

Review: Wife to a StrangerWife to a Stranger by Daphne Clair My rating: 3 of 5 stars My favorite usage of the amnesia trope is as a reset button. Protagonist (usually the heroine—I don’t think I’ve read one about a hero) was insufferable and awful and selfish person that everyone hated. She wakes up in a hospital bed and... Read More »

Review: The Ultimate Betrayal

Review: The Ultimate BetrayalThe Ultimate Betrayal by Michelle Reid My rating: 4 of 5 stars Okay, this book deserves a full review because it’s the one of the deepest, most profound HPs I’ve ever read. It’s like a punch in the gut. BUT I Don’t know if I can re-read it and do justice to the review because... Read More »

Review: Tiger, Tiger

Review: Tiger, TigerTiger, Tiger by Robyn Donald My rating: 2 of 5 stars For an oh-no-we-cant-bone-we-might-be-siblings story, this was kind of boring. I was hoping for a more lurid, salacious, V.C. Andrews-type-of-forbidden angle, but novel doesn’t quite go there. The H/h just don’t have the connection/chemistry to pull it off. Keane and Lecia meet each other at... Read More »
