Careless Love by Theresa Scott is a contemporary, interracial romance dealing with drug abuse and its effect. Bodine’s ethnicity is an interesting combination of Black and Hawaiian, while Sly is White. This story contains some very serious subject matter, but it is handled in a way that does not detract from a great romance. The accounts of substance abuse are written in stark and realistic language. The drug abuse and its side effects are not romanticized for the book’s sake. There ...more

Author Sam Cheever doesn’t do boring. Sam Cheever doesn’t do ordinary and A Honeybun in Hell is definitely extraordinary with its paranormal elements. Book four in the series, A Honeybun in Hell is just as entertaining at the preceding novels. Bella Rawnie with her eccentricity and Gypsy roots is a wonderful leading lady and quite the catch for Edric. I found it interesting that although Edric is very much grounded in what can be seen, he would fall for a woman ...more
Designing Love is an interracial romance with hilarious moments, touching moments, but overall, teeming with sex, sex and more sex. Did I say it’s teeming with sex? The plot is funny and outrageous and readers are in for quite a ride — a read — with this novel. Devon’s character is gorgeous and I liked his flash of bad boy moments. One in particular is when he gets ready to rumble with Josephine’s jerk of a boyfriend. Josephine reminds me ...more

What I liked about Fast Track to a Honeybun is how the story gets your interesting going from the opening paragraph and keeps you engrossed all the way through. This contemporary romance also has enough suspenseful parts to add another captivating layer to the plot. It helps that all the characters, both main and supporting, are well developed and come alive for the reader. A female racecar driver is not a new idea but the author certainly does a great job of making it an ...more
Sacrifices In The Name of Love surprised me. At first I thought it was a teen romance but the more I read the more I got into the story. It is an interesting look into how one lie can change the lives of so many. The main character’s father held a secret that had it been revealed sooner would have changed the course of her life. The characters at first seem immature because of their initial actions but as the ...more
A Matter of Honesty by Stephanie Morris is an enjoyable novel about a woman who has nothing who meets a man who has everything. The characters are well developed and feel very realistic. I liked how several scenarios are presented in the beginning of the novel and then each scenario unfolds throughout the fairly long novel. For example, Lauryn has lost touch with her family but is fortunate to reunite with them. Lauryn and Steve are an interracial couple who ...more
