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… Keep Reading »

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…. 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… 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… 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… 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… 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…. Keep Reading »

Make Me Sir – Cherise Sinclair

Make Me Sir – Cherise Sinclair

Favourite quote from this book “100,000 sperm and YOU were the one who who won…. I have issues with restraint. So many issues that this book was bought on PDF to read on my kindle (which is a pain in the ass by the way) but it was worth it! I noticed a change in Sinclairs writing in master of the abyss. The writing was less of a short style… Keep Reading »
