Review: Baby Maker by P Dangelico


May Contain Spoilers

After a trying week at work, I was looking for something light and funny to ease my stress levels. Baby Maker popped up on Netgalley, and though I originally thought it was NA (a romance category I try to avoid because I has such a hard time relating to the protagonists), I requested it anyway. The recently retired football player had me hooked, and after finishing Shot on Gold, I dove right into this story. I’m a sucker for athlete heroes.

Early Review: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole @avonbooks


May Contain Spoilers

I took one look at the cover for A Princess in Theory and I wanted to read it. Lusted after it, really.  I love the colors and the textures, but most especially I love look of adoration on the models’ faces.  I wish someone other than my dogs would look at me like that. Maybe Dean does when I suggest another trip to WDW, but those looks are few and far between (in fairness to him, I am SURE I am just not looking at him and therefore missing those gazes of pure adoration).

Review & Excerpt: Shot on Gold by Jaci Burton @Berkleyromance


May Contain Spoilers

This is the first Play-by-Play novel that I’ve picked up, and I was interested in it because of the backdrop of the international games. Even I knew that the Winter Olympics were looming when I started reading this, and even though I haven’t watched much of the Games since I was in high school, I still remember with fondness sitting in the family room and cheering on the home team with the family (how we all saw the action on that little screen, I’ll never fully comprehend). Two of my favorite events are represented here – hockey and figure skating. What could go wrong?

Review: The Crown Prince’s Bride by Donna Alward

May Contain Spoilers

Donna Alward is a favorite of mine, so picking this up was a no-brainer. I read The Playboy Prince and the Nanny and enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to reading Raoul’s story. While I didn’t like him as much as younger brother, Diego, he slowly grew on me.  Stephani I liked from the get go, but I wondered why she put of with some of Raoul’s nonsense.

Review: Year One by Nora Roberts @StMartinsPress


Spoiler Free!

I went into Year One without really knowing much about it. I haven’t read Nora Roberts in years and years, except for a re-read of Irish Thoroughbred that didn’t go well, but the premise of Year One piqued my interest. I was curious to see how Roberts handled the end of the world, and post-apocalyptic titles are right up my alley. Especially if there are zombies. There were none here, but the paranormal elements were fun anyway.
