Hooking Up – Helena Hunting

 

 Every book that this author writes is crazy funny. This book starts with such a hysterically funny scene it had me in stitches from the get go. Also, in Shakespearean terms, she writes tragic comedy because in the middle of … Continue reading

Fault Lines – Rebecca Shea

 

 What a sad book! I thought it would start in a breakup and work its way into a second chance romance, but this book was a tragedy all along. The heroine truly cried a river of tears! Instead of a … Continue reading

It’s Only Acting – Jackson Kane

 

 A great plot, I love Hollywood stories even though IMO it needs editing. This one didn’t have a lot of action in a movie set and it didn’t have a hunky movie star but it was ok, because it had … Continue reading

The Real Thing – Melissa Foster

 

 In the beginning, I thought:  Not my kind of book, it feels like an old-fashioned romance novel. The author is using the trope of fake engagement, which the woman accepts, but then she’s complaining all the time. She is on … Continue reading
