    Modern Romance

    The Dark Prince by S.L. Jennings

    I was ruined by Dorian, but not in the good ways Gabriella was ruined (unfortunately). The Dark Prince is much more paranormal than Dark Light, which for the progression of the series, makes total sense. [5/5 stars]

    Dark Light by S.L. Jennings

    Though I don’t have any magical powers (that I admit to), nor do I have any conflicted feelings over two hunky men, I really felt like I could relate to Gabriella. I’m not new to paranormal romance, but if you are hesitant to read a book with mystical overtones, Dark Light is a good start. [5/5 stars]

    Unleashed by Cherrie Lynn

    Though I asked myself, “ARE THEY EVER GOING TO BE HONEST WITH ONE ANOTHER?” way too many times, I loved the heart-string pulling and sex scenes throughout the book. [4/5 stars]

    Raid by Kristen Ashley

    This book was way too short. I need more of Raid and Hanna to make me swoon, tear and love. For the first time (that I’ve read), one of Kristen Ashley’s alpha males is a bit of a kinkster, and I needed way more of that. [5/5 stars]

    Taking Chances by Molly McAdams

    Taking place over a period of several years (most of the book took place over the course of a year), the story involves a lot of dialogue, both inner and between characters. If you like reading romances without cliff-hangers, this is a great book for you to read. [4/5 stars]

    Love Unrehearsed by Tina Reber

    I really loved this as the love story it was written to be. Ryan’s obsession for keeping Taryn happy and safe was palpable. There was much more sexytime detail than what was in LU1, and I was all too happy to read it. [5/5 stars]

    Love Unscripted by Tina Reber

    I love the idea of a small-town girl falling for the superstar actor boy. Through many (MANY) pages of strife and conflict, I ended up loving this couple and love them even more after reading Love Unrehearsed. [4/5 stars]

    Frenemies by C.C. Wood

    Just like its predecessor, Frenemies is a super hot, super quick, super good read. I highly recommend it as the quintessential beach read or if you need a quickie. [4.5/5 stars]

    Friends With Benefits by C.C. Wood

    I seriously loved this little story. As the perfect (for lack of a better phrase) palate cleanser for reading some heavy books, Friends with Benefits is a sweet, hot, and funny novella. I finished this in one sitting and giggled out loud at several parts. Highly recommended read for when you need a quickie. [4.5/5 stars]

    Truth by Aleatha Romig

    This is me at 1:30am this morning as I finished Truth: …WHUUUUUUUUUT?

    There was a point around when I was 2/3 of my way through the book when I tweeted to Aleatha Romig, “I’m at the point in Truth where I feel like yelling not-nice words at @AleathaRomig.” That was me being nice and not revealing my true emotion of hurty rampage.

    As the follow-up book to Consequences, Truth has so much more to it that leaves more questions than answers. Since Ms. Romig admits she likes invoking emotion from her readers, she accomplished that goal times 1000 with me in reading Truth. A must read. [5/5 stars]

    Rough Riders Series by Lorelei James

    Once I got started with the McKay boys, I couldn’t stop. Like any addiction, I got a taste and couldn’t find a way to stop. The Rough Riders series revolves around the wild McKay family and their lives in and around Wyoming. The series MUST be read in order as each book refers back to the family previously featured in earlier books. They’re highly sexual, some sweeter than others, some just this side of deliciously nasty. The Rough Riders series is HIGHLY recommended.
