The Rest Falls Away was such a fun read! I love the combination of Historical and Paranormal! Victoria is about to have her debut, but she’s also about to become the family vampire hunter. Instead of worrying about whether her dance card is full, she has to make sure none of her guests are seduced and killed by a vampire. But Victoria has been training for this her entire life, she’s well prepared when a vampire does indeed crash her party. Meanwhile, she’s caught the eye of Lord Rockley, but constantly disappearing on him isn’t the best way to show she returns his affections.

Signs of Attraction was sweet, sexy, heart breaking, and eye opening. Carli has hearing loss, but she keeps it a secret. She hides her hearing aids under her hair and never uses any other accommodations. At least until she starts a class where she can’t understand her professor at all, and then her hearing aid dies during class and she doesn’t have any more batteries. Enter, Reed. He’s a Deaf student in her class, and he comes to her rescue. Not only does he keep spare batteries for the kids he teaches, but he tells her about campus resources that could mean the difference between her passing and failing this class. And he’s super hot.
Play With Me was a quick, sexy, and surprisingly sweet read. Tatiana and Wyatt dated for several years as teens and young adults. Now, they’re being reunited after ten years. Tatiana’s brother stole from Wyatt, and she’s there to plead his case and pay off his debts. But Wyatt doesn’t want her money. He wants her. For one night. The chemistry is still there from when they were younger, and it seems to be even stronger now. It also becomes quickly apparent that those two don’t do vanilla. Their one night is going to be filled with games and pushing each other to their limits.
What I really liked about Idol was that it didn’t feel like the typical rocker romance. Killian is actually on a break from music and meets Libby because she’s his neighbor. They get off to a really rocky start, but from there they get to know each other in relative calm. They just hang out, garden, talk about music, and drink lemonade. At least until Killian is called away to go on tour, and they have to figure out how the relationship is going to work while they’re apart unless Libby joins him. I also really liked how Killian is encouraging Libby to make her own dreams come true as she’s also a musician. It’s not just about him keeping her close for sexy times. We really get to see […]
I am of mixed thoughts on Frozen. I was quite excited to start it because stranded together is one of my favorite Romance tropes. But then once it’s revealed what Erik’s curse was, I was ready to throw it across the room, because it’s like Romance authors can’t think of any other kind of curse for a Paranormal Romance. Then again, Olivia starts thinking logically about Erik’s curse, what it means, and is generally just not willing it to take it. I was like…woah. The plot still went in the predictable route, but I felt better about it because the author actually examines it and doesn’t just let it be accepted.
Sugar Rush was super, duper cute but quite light on the romance. Dulcie’s family’s chocolate shop is struggling. Her grandmother and mother had opened it, but after her mother died, Dulcie’s grandmother won’t step inside. It’s up to Dulcie to keep it running while also working toward her Master’s degree. The best way to get some peace of mind would be to win an upcoming chocolatier’s competition where the grand prize is $50,000. Well, Nick also wants to win that competition to prove to his father that he’s ready to take over the family business. And Nick wants Dulcie despite the family feud.
Encounter was pretty fun, but it ended right when the action was starting! Josh and Ricky are best friends and run a website with a couple of other friends. Their site focuses on debunking the myth of crop circles, by creating their own on local farms and documenting the process. In order to up their game, Josh begins filming them as they create the crop circles, since photos are easily faked. They’ve also gained the attention of an intern who’s studying crop circles and why people are so ready to believe it’s aliens. But when they finish their most elaborate design yet, something strange happens.
