Quickie Book Review – Lost and Found by Nicole Williams

Lost and Found (Lost and Found, #1)Lost and Found by Nicole Williams

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book! Everything about it is pitch perfect, from the complex cast of characters, to the serene setting and the plot twists… oy! As a introspective nut-case, I also adored the complicated family drama and “deep” moments. For sure, I’ll read more by this author!

Quickie Book Review – Blue Roses by Mimi Strong

Blue RosesBlue Roses by Mimi Strong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a sweet, sexy, and at times hilarious start to a new series. It comes with the typical Mimi wit I’ve come to love (and expect- so keep that up!) and interesting characters. IS there spice, yes… but perhaps not as heated as other books by Strong.

On a side note, I would love to read a novel that focuses on Rory (the best friend- I’m horrible with names) because she’s such a quirky character. You hear me Mimi?

**On a side note, I don’t think this book is available as a stand-alone novel currently. It’s part of a box set of several novels being release shortly, I believe.

Quickie Book Review – One Tiny Lie by KA Tucker

One Tiny Lie (Ten Tiny Breaths, #2)One Tiny Lie by K.A. Tucker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As much as I loved the first book, Ten Tiny Breathes, I loved this second book even more. It was emotional, introspective, witty and pitch perfect. Books like this are the reason I’ve fallen for NA books– they are angsty, transformative and take me back to a time where the possibilities were endless and awesome.

In the vein of Colleen Hoover and other New Adult romance queens, I predict that K.A. Tucker has earned a position up there with the best of them.

Quickie Book Review – Two to Tango by Mimi Strong

Two to TangoTwo to Tango by Mimi Strong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s beginning to become a pattern… Ms. Strong writes book after book that I just fall into and love. This one was no different. Her characters are complex and uber-well done. In fact, it’s one of my favorite things about the stories Strong concocts. Her cast, her peeps– they feel so *real*. In fact, she tends to give them at least one skeleton-in-the-closet, which makes for very memorable moments and people.

I adore Strong’s humor and biting wit, and that gal can sure turn out a five-alarm steamy scene like no one’s business. If you like your heroine’s imperfect & witty , you’re love stories blazing, and the hunks complex and surprising, then any of Ms. Strong’s books will fit the bill perfectly. You can always start with Tango… it won’t disappoint!

Quickie Book Review – Tragic by J.A. Huss

Tragic (Rook and Ronin, #1)Tragic by J.A. Huss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked this novel and I can’t wait to get my hands on the second book in the series. The main characters are complex and cloaked in a bit of personal back-story, some of which should make for interesting moments in future books. Tragic is well-written, pitch-perfect and an indulgent diversion from everyday life.

The Tragic girl, who’s just trying to survive, the Playboy with secrets of his own, the smoldering hot campaign that brings them together. The heat level smolders through out the book, building up to some very satisfying moments later on. Now, on to Book Two (and Sturgis, I presume?).

Quickie Book Review – Starfire by Mimi Strong (Peaches Monroe series #3)

Starfire (Peaches Monroe, #3)Starfire by Mimi Strong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love, love, love this series… and even though this last book brought things to an end, I can’t think of a better close-of-a-series. The heat level is right up there with solar flares and nuclear explosions, the dialog is always pitch perfect, and the supporting cast of characters are my kind of people.

Ms. Strong is one helluva writer and this is her best series of books yet.

So, what did I love about the main character, Peaches? Her wit, her snark, her laugh-your-pants-till-you-pee take on life and love(s). If Peaches Monroe were a real person, I’d be some sort of stalker-fangirl. With that said, if Ms. Strong writes any more books that are as stellar, blazing-hot and fabulous as the Peaches Monroe series, I can see her gaining (more) stalker-fangirl’s in the very near future. (The quiet, non-threatening kind, of course.)

Quickie Book Review – Starlight by Mimi Strong (Peaches Monroe #2)

Starlight (Peaches Monroe, #2)Starlight by Mimi Strong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve literally started this review several times, because I want to find the perfect words to describe how I feel about this book (and the Peaches Monroe series in general). Amazeballs. Fan-flipping-tastic. Unforgettably witty and sassy. Pitch Perfect.

Funnier than a well-placed punch in the… well, never mind.

Hotter than a private party with Eric Northman, Christian Grey and that Magic Mike guy 🙂 And maybe a little Jax Teller for dessert.

Peaches & Dalton. Peaches & Keith. (And Mitchell! Lurve him, yes I do!)

Since I’ve irritated even myself with this review, you’ll just have to go read the book(s). And if you don’t love Peaches Monroe as much as I do… well, then you just suck 🙂
