Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews

Magic Breaks is a big, cataclysmic book, so much so the foreword tells you it isn’t a series ender (which I know anyway because I’ve fallen behind on reading them). I love the messed up chaos that Kate always finds … Continue reading

The Love Experiment by Ainslie Paton

I’ve been reading romance since my early teens, so you might imagine I’ve read a few. There are common themes, no question, but each book is a different spin on the theme, which is what makes them fun to read. … Continue reading

The Ace of Clubs by Patricia Loofbourrow

Can’t Hardly Breathe by Gena Showalter

This book had a tone I wasn’t expecting, and was so much more than I thought it would be. As a small town romance, it hits the right marks. The cost of gossip, the way everyone looks out for Dorothea … Continue reading
