Review: Pony Express Courtship by Rhonda Gibson

May Contain Spoilers What a heartwarming read! I loved how dedicated to each other everyone in the Young family was. Rebecca is trying to raise her family after the death of her husband, but she is leery of the arrangements her late husband made to have her farm become a Pony Express station. Her adopted sons are going to be riders, and right off the bat Rebecca has reservations about the safety of this endeavor. The boys do need to earn money so they can build lives for themselves, but Rebecca can’t help but worry about them being on the trail by themselves. Read more

Review: Pipe Dreams by Sarina Bowen

May Contain Spoilers

I was really excited to start reading Pipe Dreams. Beacon wasn’t my favorite player, but I was intrigued by Lauren.  What was the deal with her, anyway?  So cranky and contrary, there had to be a reason for her unpleasantness, especially when it came to hockey.   She was obviously good at her job, or Nate would have ended her employment instead of promoting her.  The girls in the Bruisers organization, however, had nothing good to say about Lauren, and I wanted to know why.

Review: Devil’s Own by Megan Crane

Review by Poo Penny

OMG. I cant even help myself. These are such guilty pleasures at this point. I have tried to tell myself I don’t like them, and maybe I didn’t at some point. But you know what, I do now. Or at least, this one was great. Angst, sex, a little story, and best of all, it took me out of reality for a few hours. Working 12 hour days really gets to a person after a while.

Review: Tangle of Need by Nalini Singh

May Contain Spoilers

I am trying to power through the last books in this series, so I’m ready for Silver Silence in June.  The library is not cooperating.  I think most of the other patrons are doing the same thing, based on the waiting lists!  I am still glad that I discovered the Psy-Changleing series so late, because it’s been fun grabbing a volume here and there, instead of having to wait a year between books for them to be published.  I won’t be saying that much longer, though.

Review: Dancing in the Rain by Kelly Jamieson

May Contain Spoilers

I haven’t been reading many Loveswept romances because they publish so many that are New Adult, and it takes a special NA to keep me engaged.  I thought that Dancing in the Rain was NA, so I skimmed over it when I first saw it.  Then I read some good reviews, I’m a sucker for a good hockey hero, and I decided to give it a go.  I am so glad I did, because it is easily one of my favorite contemporary romances so far this year.

Dueling Reviews: The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams

May Contain Spoilers

Poo Penny and I both read The Shadow Reader last December, and somehow I missed posting the reviews, so now you get Dueling Reviews!!

Poo Penny’s Take

Very solid start to this trilogy. This fae world was interesting and I liked the shadow reading aspect, although, besides the rebellion, I wasn’t sure how applicable it would be to have a shadow reader on the payroll. I also wondered why it took McKenzie so long to figure out that she shouldn’t have had to wait 10 years for someone. Hello?

Review: Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne

May Contain Spoilers

I have read a few Lauren Layne titles, and for the most part, I have enjoyed them.  I was avoiding Walk of Shame at first because I thought it was NA, and I am not a huge fan of the New Adult genre.  In fact, most of time I can’t stand the angsty whining.  I decided to take a chance on it after some research on Amazon and GoodReads, and I’m glad I did, though the book had mixed results for me.
