Openly, Honestly (Openly Straigh #1.5)
Openly, Honestly - Bill Konigsberg

Cute little post-holiday holiday short story. It doesn't really add anything to the series as a whole, but it was fun to spend a little time with Claire Olivia as she tries to cheer up Rafe, and we get to meet Ben's family which was nice.

eARC: Toxic Desire (Released today)
Toxic Desire - Robin Lovett
Nem (Nemona) crash lands on a planet with Oten. That planet happens to be Fyrian. Oten has a history with humans and hates them. I thought with a good reason (they killed many of his kind/species). Together they have to survive on this planet. Except, this planet has an aphrodisiac atmosphere from the flora and fauna. I thought this sounded interesting.
I was disappointed. There's sex. Lots of it. It felt forced with two people who otherwise wouldn't be together. Or even want to be together. I didn't think there was much romance when it was all said and done.

Publishes on March 19th

Mistaken Identity – One Taste of You by Amanda Siegrist @amanda_siegrist
One Taste of You (A One Taste Novel Book 1) - Amanda Siegrist


Do you have any plans for the summer? Need some great romantic mysteries for your summer beach reading season? Look no further than Amanda Siegrist’s One Taste series. Some hot lovin’ and hunkalicious men will have you heating up, even on a cloudy day.


One Taste of You

Amazon  /  Goodreads



A love story we are all familiar with, but Amanda Siegrist throws in a little twist in One Taste of You. Boy dumps girl. Don’t get mad, party. And that’s what Zoe does, meeting her besties for a night out on the town. In walks…


Zeke. He is a homicide detective, who has been recruited to work under cover to bust a pimp. Uh Oh. I think I know where this is going and I think it is going to be a fun ride..

One Taste…that’s all he wants.


Hot and steamy sexual situations.  It’s insta lust all right. And boy did Zeke ever blow a good thing. He is haunted by his actions and can’t get her out of his mind.


A murder brings them back together. Can he win over a hurt and angry Zoe?


A trio of ladies, some hunkalicious cop. I can see where this series is going and I am happy to be along for the ride.


I love the dialogue and verbal bantering between Zeke and Ben. And Zoe, Rina and Dee. I love all the characters, and I didn’t see the ‘final’ danger until it came knocking.


One Taste of Love by Amanda Siegrist is a fun, easy reading romance, with a mystery and murder on the side. Not quite as intense as her other romantic suspense series I read, but great for your summer reading list.


The romance is the entree and the mystery is the salad. Amanda has me so invested in the characters, I feel I must continue reading the next book…and the next book…and I did.

Unputdownable! – In The Dark by Chris Patchell @chris_patchell
In the Dark - Chris Patchell


In the Dark

Amazon Audible  /  Goodreads





In The Dark by Chris Patchell starts out with terror and a sense of wrongness from the opening pages, but I was hooked by the fabulous cover. I love stories that are filled with suspense and the pacing of In The Dark kept me racing through the pages. Unputdownable!


The story is familiar and I love that Chris Patchell is not afraid of killing off characters right and left, making me wonder who will be left standing. The killer is exposed early, but that did nothing to prepare me for the twists and turns, the horrific story of a villain running AMOK, driven, haunted by his past.


Even knowing the shit is coming and to say it’s going to hit the fan doesn’t lessen the gut punch, shock and horror of the evil men do to one another.


Warning:  Begin early in the morning to avoid the dark shadows and give yourself time to finish. I feel once you get into the gritty, you won’t be able to quit!


I won In The Dark by Chris Patchell and the rest is history. She is on my radar and has become a must read author for me.

Review: Nothing Left to Burn
Nothing Left To Burn - Heather Ezell

I received a copy from Penguin First to Read.


I went into this book not really knowing anything about it. It flagged my attention because I remembered if from my TBR list. I wasn’t expecting such an emotional gut-wrencher.


It starts with teenager Audrey wakened by firemen knocking on her door and some ungodly hour of the morning informing her of mandatory evacuation due to a raging wildfire. Audrey lives in Orange County, California. Her dad is out of town on a business trip and her mom and younger sister Maya have gone somewhere (I can’t remember where) for some really exclusive ballet audition for Maya. Audrey stayed home and went to a party the night before. It’s clear something happened there and she may be a tad hungover.


Naturally she’s completely freaked out and running around trying to figure out what to save, to get hold of her dad. She can’t bear the thought of freaking out her younger sister before her big audition. Also extremely worried over her boyfriend Brooks who is a volunteer firefighter.


What follows is an emotional roller coaster as Audrey comes to terms with the raging fire and how it’s effecting the people in her life. Also with flashback chapters on how she met Brooks and how their relationship developed.


It’s excellently written and the emotion pours out of the characters. Audrey comes across as a bit of a shy loner, with one best friend Grace. She doesn’t seem to get out much and feels a little left behind since Grace got a girlfriend, Quinn. Audrey works with Grace’s older brother Hayden on some AP projects for a class they’re in together. They’re friendly but you also get an impression something happened there as well that Audrey’s trying to avoid dealing with.


She meets Brooks at a party and they strike an immediate connection. He’s a loner as well, there’s gossip about him Audrey’s heard throughout the school grapevine but Brooks is nice and she doesn’t want to listen to rumours. Especially since they seem to be getting on so well. They start hanging out more and more and develop a deeper relationship going from friendship to something more romantic.


Audrey misses some red flags when Brooks’s behaviour starts changing. He’s got a complex past, his beloved brother died, he’s struggling to deal with it. Understandable. He can get her to talk, but doesn’t always seem to divulge much information about himself and gets annoyed and angry when asked about it. That should raise a few questions on its own. He doesn’t seem to like Audrey hanging out with her friends. He makes a scene about it when her friends show up at a birthday celebration for Audrey. He also seems kind of pushy about sex as well, especially since Audrey’s made it clear she wants to wait until she feels ready. Yet at the same time he can be very romantic as well.


The chapters switch between what is happening the day of the evacuation and what happened over the summer leading to that point.  As Audrey gets closer to Brooks she starts ignoring her own friends, and there’s big questions about what happened to Brooks’s deceased brother. Audrey gets some pretty shocking information. Yet she still can’t seem to think of much else.


There’s also a really great family dynamic as well, Audrey and her sister are really close and their relationship with their parents is decently described as well. The parents are involved without being overbearing and not pushed to the background.


There was a surprising twist in regards to the wildfire as well.


Beautifully written and really emotional as well, this was a quick read but a very good one. Definitely an author I would read again.
