A Nix MM Review – Call Me Sir, Boy! – Kim Dare

A Nix MM Review – Call Me Sir, Boy! – Kim Dare

Losing a Valentine’s bet just might lead Jack to the best night of his life… Jack’s Valentine’s Evening started with him losing a bet and being stuck wearing a baseball cap with a bloody stupid slogan emblazoned across it for the rest of the day. Bored with the submissives that populate the local club scene, he doesn’t expect things to get any better as the night progresses. But, when a stunning stranger kneels naked at his feet and offers Jack his submission, he soon finds himself mastering a man whose kinks match his perfectly. The cap fits. The only question… Keep Reading »

Books we don’t like – to review or not to review?

There has been a lot of chatter this last couple of months about a YA mafia. Said “mafia” leave rather scathing comments on negative reviews of their own books. The problem has gotten so bad that Goodreads have taken the step of blocking any author who does this, stating that Goodreads should be a place where people can air their views on certain books, negative or positive. Here on the blog, we have decided to state our views on the subject, with an explanation as to why. Personally, I hate leaving negative reviews. Having tried time and time again to write a book,… Keep Reading »

A Nix Cowboy Review -Texas Two Step – Cat Johnson (4 Stars)

A Nix Cowboy Review -Texas Two Step – Cat Johnson (4 Stars)

This is a short read from Cat Johnson but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the tale! Maryam is living in London in a dead-end relationship with a job that is going nowhere. After chatting to rodeo fans in the US on the internet, she decides to visit Texas to see exactly what it is she is missing. En route she finds out that the boyfriend is a loser (she refers to him as a “Wanker” at one point which made me chuckle….a seriously under-used word in literature) and breaks ties with him, landing in the USA free and single….

A Nix Cowboy Review – Raising Kane by Lorelei James (5 Stars)

A Nix Cowboy Review – Raising Kane by Lorelei James (5 Stars)

The rough riders series is set around the McKay family and their ranches. The McKay family is made up of lots and lots of Alpha Cowboys with some VERY raunchy habits. They all have similar names (Incredibly confusing…I can never remember who is married to who!) and all are high-handed and hardheaded. Raising Kane is book 9. These books can be read as stand-alone, but I recommended that you don’t. Kane, for example, was introduced in one of the very early books and I think you need to read the background to truly appreciate the change in this Cowboy. Kane… Keep Reading »

Nix Cowboy Review – Unridden by Cat Johnson (5 Stars)

Nix Cowboy Review – Unridden by Cat Johnson (5 Stars)

I read this book after constantly seeing this authors name crop up on here in relation to good Cowboy Romance books. After reading a few of her short stories (over at allromanceebooks.com), I quickly realised that I liked her style of writing and this could be a very good choice. Unridden is book 1 of the Studs and Spurs Trilogy which centres around the rodeo circuit. Jenna Block is a struggling romance author who gets directed, by her publisher, towards the cowboy romance genre. After realising that a Bull Riding Championship is being held in the same town as a Romance… Keep Reading »

A Nix Review – Tequila Makes her Clothes fall Off by Cara North (4 Stars)

A Nix Review – Tequila Makes her Clothes fall Off by Cara North (4 Stars)

“Why didn’t you tell me you were a virgin?” “What makes you think I was?” Bethany continued to lazily stroke his head. “You had a maidenhead. There’s probably blood between us right now.” He watched her easy smile fade; then her face screwed up in defiance “What the hell is a Maidenhead?” (Yes this is an actual line from our Hero…..Surprisingly he grew in my estimations over the course of the plot :D) So I decided at my blog to do a month dedicated to cowboy’s to fit in with the fact I WILL be reading Lorelei James new book:D… Keep Reading »

Unlacing the Innocent Miss – Margaret McPhee (4 Stars)

Unlacing the Innocent Miss – Margaret McPhee (4 Stars)

Normally I don’t deal well with historical romances. The manhood and womanhood references annoy me too much and the heaving boosoms and restricted corsets make me cringe. However, this book completely blew me away! Rosalind is a woman with secrets. Fearing they will be revealed when her employer falsely accuses her of stealing some jewels from his mother, she runs away from her current life, in the dead of the night, to try to start afresh elsewhere. Wolf is a “thief-taker” which, in simple terms, means that he is an old school bounty hunter employed by Rosalinds employer to track… Keep Reading »

A Nix BDSM Review : Bridget Midway – Love My Way (5 Stars)

A Nix BDSM Review : Bridget Midway – Love My Way (5 Stars)

I got this book as part of the 12 days of christmas from all romance. I dont know what I was expecting but it wasn’t this! The book is based around a reality TV show called “love my way” where Master Eagan searches for his perfect submissive. I really dont think the television censors in the UK would have passed it but wow I think it would have created quite an audience if it got aired! Anader participates in the show purely in an attempt to humilate Eagan in revenge for a less than flattering asessment of her dancing at… Keep Reading »

Slave To Sensation – Nalini Singh

Slave To Sensation – Nalini Singh

“She was his and he was hers. They had under-the-skin privileges.” I read this book after reading a load of reviews singing its praises. It shouldn’t work but I can’t recommend it enough (By the way…the covers are awesomely awful but they have recently been redone in the UK!) This book is set in a futuristic world where three different races live alongside each other in faux harmony; Humans, Psy and Changelings. The changelings are, for want of a better term, shifters. In this book we meet werecats and werewolves, beings whose animal and human sides live hand in hand. We also… Keep Reading »
