23119319Opening Up (Ink and Chrome #1) by Lauren Dane

Romance, paperback, 313 pages; published June 16, 2015 by Forever; source: publisher

Loved PJ’s smarts, talent, savvy; fell for Asa in a hot minute. Speaking of hot, Dane doesn’t stint on those sparks, hot love scenes. So enjoying this new series! 4 stars.


25595493About That Fling by Tawna Fenske

Romance, Kindle Edition, 321 pages; expected publication: September 1, 2015 by Montlake Romance; source: Kindle Unlimited

Always enjoy Fenske’s stories. Newest: a solid read. Great chemistry, funny/smexy scenes, 3D characters. Didn’t love the drama, which seemed forced. 3 1/2 stars.


8162828Fatal Affair (Fatal #1) by Marie Force

Romantic suspense, paperback, 480 pages; published April 28, 2015 by Carina Press (first published 2010); source: publisher

New-to-me series just re-released– enjoyed the suspense/mystery, sweet banter between the MCs. Do wish we didn’t spend so much time on Sams probs but good story nonetheless. 3 1/2 stars.


9230121Fatal Justice (Fatal #2) by Marie Force

Romantic suspense, paperback, 400 pages; published April 28, 2015 by Carina Press (first published 2011); source: publisher

Didn’t like this one as much as 1st in series. Tough lady cop Sam dwells too much on past, gets bogged down; missing spark w/ Nick. Liked the mystery, tho. 3 stars.


23398817Asking For It (Asking For It #1) by Lila Pace

Dark erotica, paperback, 336 pages; published June 2, 2015 by Berkley; source: publisher

Intense, v. dark story exploring characters’ deepest needs (including rape fantasies), fears. Well-written but, wow, gotta be prepared for this one. 4 stars.
