Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frames

Sometimes a fluffy romance that does not require a whole lot of deep thinking can be just what the doctor ordered. While this book fills that description with a somewhat predictable storyline and a few side characters that fit in the typical romance box, it is surprisingly entertaining and a thoroughly enjoyable and quick read.… Continue reading Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frames

One Man’s Opus – A Survival & Preparedness Story by Boyd Craven III

This book is written in first-person, which usually means it takes me a while to get into it, but my interest was caught immediately. The writing is so smooth it is easy to feel like you are wrapped up in Rick Carpenter’s thoughts, which, of course, you are, but this story did an excellent job… Continue reading One Man’s Opus – A Survival & Preparedness Story by Boyd Craven III


Love’s First Fall by Julie Sanford

I went into this one blind, and guessed from the title that it is a romance. The first few pages made me think, “Yet another erotica,” and I buckled down for a rough ride. I could not have been more wrong. This story is about love and loss, but more importantly about loving and accepting… Continue reading Love’s First Fall by Julie Sanford

Pen and Zander by Laekan Zea Kemp

This is not a romance. It is a love story. Pen is eighteen and works in her father’s Mexican restaurant. She loves the work and baking - improving recipes and delicious desserts. She lives for that restaurant, but her parents want her to become a nurse, like her mother. The thought leaves her cold; she… Continue reading Pen and Zander by Laekan Zea Kemp

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

This book came highly recommended by many people and when I read the blurb I was intrigued. What followed was horror disguised as romance. Maybe I’m special - or have seen and experienced real life - and that is why I can see the dark truth hidden in this story geared towards young adults who… Continue reading Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I wasn't sure if I should review this book. It has thousands already and was made into a truly horrible movie. Fortunately, I read the book before watching it. For all those people who saw the movie but haven't read the book, and those who haven't given it a thought at all, this review is… Continue reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Crashed: Siren’s Call by Kerri Ann

As the title 'Crashed' implies, this is not an easy read and deals with the aftermath of the first book in this phenomenal series. It has moments of beauty, pain, anger, regret, and caused me a lot of frustration. After finishing Casper's Ghost, I was dying to get my hands on this one. The wait… Continue reading Crashed: Siren’s Call by Kerri Ann

Perfect Tenn by Heather Dahlgren

This romantic comedy is a difficult one to review. There are so many strengths, but there are some weaknesses that detract from the overall story. I enjoyed it immensely and read it very quickly. It is a book that I definitely suggest for romance readers. Regan is a gorgeous redhead who lives with her equally gorgeous best… Continue reading Perfect Tenn by Heather Dahlgren

Sometimes they meet at each other's homes for parties, sometimes it's just… Continue reading Didn’t Get Frazzled by David Z. Hirsch, M.D.
