You know what’s better than one ToT cover? Multiple ToT covers! Granted, they’re all a bit small but totally worth straining your eyes for. Because I devour romance — all types of romance — as quickly as I read everything else (seriously, this needs to be my life. Where can I get a job where all I have to do is read books?!? Because I’m so in.), this is another pile of tweet-short reviews.
I totally realize that some people don’t consider short reviews to actually be “reviews”. That reviews should be long and detailed, filled with critiquery and high fallutin’ language. But, you know what? Whatever way you or I want to write reviews is completely up to us. And, to me, these reviews are quick ways to get my thoughts down, track my books and challenge myself to keep the review under 140 characters (and I don’t always succeed…). Anyway. Time for reviews!
THE UNLEASHING (Call of Crows #1) by Shelly Laurenston
Paranormal romance, trade paperback, 373 pages; published March 31, 2015 by Kensington; source: publisher
Love the Norse mythology! A bad-assed reincarnated former marine forced to bond w/ her “Sister Crows” all while falling for the darkly reclusive viking. *swoons*
FLIRTING WITH DISASTER (Jackson: Girls Night Out #2) by Victoria Dahl
Contemporary romance, paperback, 384 pages; published January 27, 2015 by HQN Books; source: publisher
Dahl always comes through with a funny, sexy story. Tom was absolutely adorable, so serious and irresistible, even to Isabelle (and her big secret).
THE WARLORD’S WIFE (Sons of the North #1) by Sandra Lake
Historical romance, ebook, 284 pages; published March 17, 2015 by InterMix; source: publisher
Enjoyed the interesting take but was hoping for more romance a la Johanna Lindsey. Magnus was a hottie but not around enough to romance Lida enough for me.
YOU REALLY GOT ME (Rock Star Romance #1) by Erika Kelly
Contemporary romance, paperback, 352 pages; published January 6, 2015 by Berkley; source: publisher
Bad boy, up-and-coming rock star meets sweet PR assistant…while it’s a been there, done that tale, it was still a solid romance of the rocker kind.
GUARDED (Tidewater #2) by Mary Behre
Contemporary romance, paperback, 320 pages; published August 5, 2014 by Berkley; source: publisher
Excellent premise: vet can talk to animals, gets wrapped up in mystery, falls for hot cop. IKR? But, despite good tension, it didn’t catch me fully.
