Protective Custody is a very exhilarating adult fiction. I like how the fact the mystery that's engulfing the female character serves to not only bring more tension in the story, but also to serve as a form of exhilaration.
Protective Custody starts off with the main female character witnessing a murder and nobody seems to believe what she had said. She then calls up her ex for protection and things started to get much, much better.
I enjoyed reading this story very much. Despite of it being an adult fiction; an erotica, it's not trashy at all. If only all other erotica are like this, I believe the believe the genre would not be marked as trashy.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Carina Press via Netgalley. I was not compensated in any ways for writing this review.

To read this book as an adult, now that's pure escapism from the cruel world. I really love this book and I'm pleased to say that re-reading this as an adult made me rediscover the simple joy of imagining about the wonderful world around me. It is such a misfortune that we no longer get these kinds of books in the market. Such a shame that our children's and YA genre is infested with vampire, werewolves and whatnot. Back then, we just had pure, unadulterated literary fun instead of the darker tones of tales!(less)
This book did not caught my attention in the beginning despite of the exotic plot and description. I’m not quite sure why, but that’s how I feel about this book. Perhaps the pace is too slow and I wish that there’s more action between the hero and the heroine in this story instead of just emotional ups and downs. I also feel that there’s missing pieces that I can’t really put a finger to, but i suppose this is because I haven’t read any other books in this series.
Nevertheless, the story picks up it’s pace afterwards and I suppose I can say that I absolutely love the alpha male Haidar. Great book to read if you’re looking for some exotic romance.

I love romance and fantasy the most, but lately, I’ve been given an opportunity to review this self-help book, entitled ’52 Ways to Wow Your Husband’ by Pam Farrel.
I thought this particular self help book is going to be another one of those boring, lame, uninspiring motivational book, but I was surprised that it’s not only not boring, but very interesting to read as well. It is in fact, a book that changes my life forever. Well, not exactly my life, but close enough, as it helps me to put some spices in my marriage and makes me a much happier woman.
This book, ’52 Ways to Wow Your Husband’ is for those who wants to bring some excitement into their mundane marriage life. You see… once you’re married for quite a period of time with your spouse, some of those ‘wow’ factor that you have before you got married is gone due to marital responsibilities and whatnot. And before you know it, your married life will be just another routine you’d have to bear, and you practically wonder what you’ve gotten yourself into.You didn’t sign up for a boring life of taking care of the kids all the time. And you definitely did not sign up to dealing with scrutinizing in laws. You signed up for a marriage because you love the man and wants to build a happy life together with him.
This book teaches you how to wow your husband and bring back the romance into your marriage. This book covers from flirting with your husband, surprising your husband, planning a date with him and not to mention how to have a much more emotionally intensified sex life.
You’re taught how to surprise your husband once a week with this book, and you’re supposed to make use of this book to improvise your relationship with your husband, and I’m sure glad I did picked up this book though I’m not a fan of self-help books.
I enjoyed this book very much, and I enjoyed doing the ‘experiments’ and ‘assignments’ recommended by the book even more. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
This book changes my life and helps bring some surprise element in my marriage, and I highly recommends this book to those who wants some wow in their marriage.(less)
I was very, very surprised when I read The Vampire Voss by Colleen Greason. Initially, I was expecting a modern paranormal story, but I was pleasantly surprised that the entire story does not take place in modern setting, but in the regency setting instead. This is a very witty Vampire story, and it’s surprisingly sexy. I like this book, and I would definitely recommend this book to those who love sexy fantasy and paranormal romance. Thumbs up for Vampire Voss, and I can’t wait for more books in this series.
I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. Personally I thought the cover ought to be improvised a little bit. The cover did not do justice to the book. (less)
This book teaches me one thing: Sometimes, friends can be your enemy, and your enemies can actually be your friends. Confusing? Well, I suppose it is. Things can get really confusing, but don’t worry, things usually gets better as truth is slowly revealed.
As I read this book though, I wondered if one could be evil enough to make their enemy’s enemy their friend? Or should one keep your enemy at arm’s length instead of avoiding them? Hmm, curious thought, and it gets curiouser and curiouser to me as I read along.
Don’t get me wrong. This is a wonderfully written story. There’s structure, there’s dynamics, and one got to love a heroin that can hold her own despite of her flaws.
Love this book to bits, and it’s definitely a keeper. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I thought the cover could be improvised a little bit to make the book looks more attractive to readers.

From the author of True Love and Other Disaster and many more delicious books from the 'Little Black Dress Book' series, comes Any Man Of Mine. I seriously couldn't get enough of Rachel Gibson's writing. I have come to love her stories and Any man of Mine is no different from the others. This book surpassed my expectation, and I really had to laugh at the quirks thrown into the story.
I love the fact how the author starts off the plot with a couple who were accidentally married for only 3 days and were reunited in a rather awkward way some time later and found their ways into each other's heart again. This is really an easy and funny read, and highly recommended to those who loves adult chic-lit.
4 stars for this book, and it'll make a perfect V-day gifts to ladies who adore a good love story. (less)
Looking for a book for escapism? Wants some spicy, passionate, mind-blowing read with sexy, virile men who not only can seduce but is also a pirate in every sense of the word? Well then, if you're looking for all those things, Captured by The Rogue Lord by Katharine Ashe is for you. This book is sensational and mesmerizing. It's also intriguing at many levels, and you wouldn't want to miss this historical fiction gem. It was well written and it's hard to put down, and by the time you finished reading, I can assure you that you would want a lord pirate of your own who would steal you away and romance you in every way possible.
I rate this book 4 out of 5, and I daresay this make a perfect Valentine's Day gift. (less)
Love time traveling? Can’t get enough of hot, sexy pirates with a knack of getting themselves into trouble? Well then you might want to give The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale by Christine Bell a try.
The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale by Christine Bell tells the tale of a young female pirate who travels through time. The story is highly original and is guaranteed to give you a shot of adrenaline rush each time you flip through the pages.
Overall, The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale is a fantastic, breathtaking read. The only downside of this book is that it is too short for my liking. The length is half of those regular novels I usually hooked myself with.
It is a misfortune for me that the story had to ended so fast cuz I can’t get enough of The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. Highly recommended to those who loves sci-fi adventure kind of stories.
I’m a time pirate-born in 1810, now a 21st-century woman. I travel through time trying to right wrongs without disrupting the fragile balance between what is and what can never be.
That’s why it’s vital that I go to 1836 and find the man who conned my brother out of his Time Travel Mechanism as quickly as possible. If the technology falls into the wrong hands, it could change the world as we know it. The notorious Duke of Leister definitely qualifies as the wrong hands. An amateur scientist of the slightly mad variety, he’s bound to figure out how to use the TTM sooner rather than later.
I knew this wouldn’t be easy. But I wasn’t counting on him being as sexy as hell. Or winding up chained to his bed…

Are you a fan of highly exhilarating, high paced fiction? If you are, then this book, Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl is definitely one for your library. I'm one of those people who loves to judge a book by it's cover. And the first time I saw this book, I thought I wouldn't like it. You see, the cover wasn't really inviting in my opinion, but I'm glad that I picked up this book.
I like the fast paced story and highly engaging characters and scenes that could spook me and gives me chills. Definitely one of those books that you wouldn't want to put down until you reached the end of it.
I highly recommends this book to all readers who appreciates a high quality, fast paced plot kind of stories. I rate this book 4 out of 5. I received an ARC of this book from Thomas Nelson Publisher and I was not required to write a positive review for it.
‘Cherished’ is the second book by Kim Cash Tate that I’ve read. I had the privilege to review the ARC of her previous work, ‘Faithful’, and I thought her work was really inspiring and brought me closer to God.
I was hoping to read her work again, and I was really pleased when I saw her latest book, ‘Cherished’ is up for review.
I didn’t quite know what to expect from her latest work, but I have to say that like her previous work, this book is a wonderful masterpiece.
This book have a soul. Or at least, I feel it have a soul. I feel that the story is alive, and the people in it are real as the pain that the characters were dealing with are very close to home. Highly emotional, but not melodramatic. Kim Cash Tate has outdone herself in this amazing book.
This book gives me a spiritual satisfaction that not many book managed to give me, and I highly recommends this book to those who wants to enjoy reading fiction and feed their soul at the same time.

I was getting wary of Harlequin books. You see, all these while I’ve been devotedly reading Harlequin Presents, a line in Harlequin books where the themes are rather repetitive. There’s always bosses, millionaires, mistresses, marriage of convenience and whatnot, and so when I was given the opportunity to review The Last Warrior by Susan Grant, another book from the publisher Harlequin, I wasn’t very excited as I thought it will be another one of those books where the storyline is so lame and not original.
But boy, was I wrong for this book, The Last Warrior is nothing like those regular Harlequin Presents books that I’ve been reading to pass time all these while.
The Last Warrior by Susan Grant is a gripping, powerful and mesmerizing tale about a warrior who had been betrayed by the King that he had been serving and he had lost the sense of belonging.
He was thrown in a world of deception and betrayal, and also strange emotions that he had never had to deal with before.
The Last Warrior is a very moving and thrilling tale set in a fantasy world, and it’s one hell of a romance story that you would not want to miss if you’re a fantasy romance lover.
Dealing Her Final Card by Jennie Lucas is another one of those typical Harlequin romance that you’d probably pick up to read during one of those lazy Sunday afternoon. I usually enjoy Harlequin books, but to be honest, I did not really like this story despite the fact that I admire the heroine’s character. Nope, I have nothing against the heroine besides the fact that she’s way too overprotective over her younger sister.
The plot was smooth and the setting was marvelous, but I did not like the hero of the story. In my humble opinion, the hero of the story is too obnoxious and not to mention ruthless to my liking. He’ll do whatever he pleased to get what he wants and take revenge on the woman whom he actually left 10 years before. The man is also domineering and made too much assumption not only about the heroine, but everyone around him in general and hence, makes the story less palatable for my reading pleasure. I like heroes who are less jackass in nature.
I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Harlequin publisher via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book and I was not compensated in any ways for this review.
*Spoiler Alert* If you haven’t read any of the Iron Fey books, please do not proceed. This review will be a spoiler fest.
The Iron Traitor is the 6th book from the Iron Fey series. I have been following the the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa for quite some time now, and the latest Iron Fey book, the Iron Traitor, is by far the most frustrating one among all other Iron Fey books! It’s a good that that instead of buying the books, I read iron fey series online free. Well, sort of. I’m a Netgalley member, and an advance reader, and therefore, I’m entitled to review books before it’s published.
So the story starts where the The Lost Prince left us off. Ethan and Kenzie is back in the real world, but trouble ensues and they are forced to go back to Nevernever in quest to stop the Forgotten from destroying faes from all court with their glamour sucking abilities.
The story is pretty much infuriating, really. Well, at least to me it feels infuriating, especially when I can’t really feel the chemistry between the characters the way I felt for the original characters, Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grimalkin. Unlike reading the original iron fey series where I could actually feel that I’m thrown into Nevernever and experienced the adventures and romance first hand, the Iron Traitor did not give me the same feeling. It feels like I’m standing outside of an aquarium and just looking at the fish swimming…yups, it feels like I’m reading something from a third person point of view, and it’s not really fun. Reading the new Iron Fey series is like reading a fanfiction, and to be able to really enjoy the new iron fey series, I really have to forget about the original ones….something I cannot do….not when I could actually feel the intense chemistry between the characters. So far Iron Traitor felt like a fanfiction, through the storyline and plot is quite amazing.
To be honest, I struggled to read the first few chapters of the Iron Traitor. It not only lacks chemistry, but draggy as well in the beginning. The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa only gets interesting after awhile, where readers are thrown into the whirlwind of adventure once again.
But I’ll give credits where it’s due. There’s major character’s development where Ethan and Keirran is concerned. If you hate Ethan Chase in the previous book, then you’ll probably find that he is much more likable in the new iron fey series. In this book, you’ll see that Ethan has matured greatly. From an obnoxious brat, he became somewhat a man who will do whatever he can to protects his family and his loved ones, though not to an extend where he would do something foolish in order to accomplish his goal, unlike Keirran, the prince of the Iron Court (Keirran is the son of Ash and Meghan Chase. He was first featured in an alternate universe, where his personality is different and altered. In Iron’s Prophecy he is seen by his mother, Meghan Chase in the Dreaming Pool. He is immortal and ageless)
Ethan knows the limit of his sacrifices, and despite the fact that his girlfriend is dying from cancer, he refused to make a bargain with the faeries to keep her alive any second longer should the time come. Now, that is something I applaud; his bravery to let go instead of hanging on to something inevitable. Apart from that, Ethan finally understood and forgave Meghan’s action and kept a distance from him once he saw what the Oracle showed him; the prophecy that starts it it: his death at Keirran’s hand. Another brownie point for Ethan Chase.
Keirran, on the other hand, did the most terrible thing just so that he could keep his love, Annwyl, a former handmaiden to Queen Titania who was banished and exiled from the Summer Court alive when her existence is threatened by the forgotten. Yes, Keirran is willing to do anything for that summer sidhe, and that includes killing Ethan without giving it a second thought. He’s willing to destroy everything and starts a war just for her, something that irritates me greatly because I know so little about his love story with the summer fae, Annwyl.
I felt that what he did was not justified at all. All we know about Keirran and Annwyn is just a tidbit here and there. I couldn’t relate. I couldn’t feel the passion, and couldn’t empathize with their relationship because all it was revealed in the Iron Traitor is just snippets of their initial meeting. And to make it worst, it was revealed at the end of the story that Annwyl was commanded by Queen Titania of the Summer Court to get the attention of the said Iron Prince and seduce him before betraying him. (Though we come to understand later that Annwyl really did fell in love with Keirran for real afterwards). To me, it is not worth to destroy everything for just one girl, who in my opinions, lacks backbone and character.
The Iron traitor ends with a terrible cliffhanger, where Keirran stabs Ethan with his sword, and the last page ends there: Ethan Chase all shocked, bloodied, and dying; just because Keirran thought that it is all right to kill his own uncle so that Annwyl can be saved. So great! First Kierran made a bargain with the Queen of The Summer court, Titania so that she would consider lifting Annwyl’s exile and allow her to go back to the Summer court only to kill off a mystical creature deep in Tir Na Nog and starts a war with the Winter Court, then he go and stabs his own uncle, Ethan just because The Queen of The Forgotten told him that’s the only way to give Annwyl a chance to live and make the human believe in faeries again. Can it get any stupider? Well, I don’t doubt it can, but of course, I will have to wait til 2014 to read what happened to all of them.
So, did I enjoy the book? Well, yes. Kinda. In a way I enjoyed it…the adventure part, but not the rest of the book. Like I said earlier, I couldn’t feel the chemistry, passion and romance between the characters, and therefore I find it difficult to relate, unlike the original iron fey series where I felt that I am one of the characters. Reading the new iron fey series is like reading fanfiction, and from author;s point of view, I feel that the entire spinoff is just portraying the author’s writing skill instead of a real storytelling. :( The saving grace for this book is still the minor appearance of Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grimalkin.
Overall, it is an okay read…if you’re into teen angst, that is. I rate this book a 3 out of 5 stars for the story and plot development. I received an ARC of the Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa from Netgalley, and I was not compensated in any ways for writing this review.(less)
Of Dukes and Deception is a very interesting historical romance.At the beginning, it made me wonder, how far this story will go? And how long can the main male character deceive the female character and denies the feelings that he has for her? And how long would he believe that his relationship with her is no longer just a wager?
I like reading this book, it gives me warm and fuzzy feelings all over. I smiled at how the male main character’s plans turn awry and backfires. I enjoyed it very much and kudos to the writer for writing such a mesmerizing and wonderful story.

I used to hate contemporary romance. I find it rather boring and too much to digest, but thank God Jennifer Greene makes it simple bearable. Like most of her contemporary fictions, Kisses from Heaven is not only just tolerable, but believable as well.
Ms. Greene did a wonderful job in developing the plot, the characters as well as the conflict. I couldn't help but feel drawn to the problems her characters are having, as it's really close to home.
Unlike regular romance, contemporary romance fiction characters usually struggles with a lot of issues that will make you think a lot, and Kisses From Heaven is no different in that aspect.
I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the rest of her books, and if I were to rate this book, I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Loren Shephard is too proud to ask for help and too broke to pay for it. She has her hands full with a demanding career, a grandfather who can't stay away from the bottle, a spoiled younger sister and a mansion that's fallen into disrepair. When Buck Leeds stumbles into her life and starts fixing things-and arousing feelings she never knew she possessed-she can't help but fall for the brawny stranger.
Loren's trust in Buck is shattered and she's filled with self-doubt when she realizes her first impressions of Buck were all wrong. How can she build a future with a man that reminds her too much of her past? (less)
‘Irresistible?’ by Stephanie Bond is a gem. I was reading it in the office and I practically had to stop reading because it is impossible to be discreet while reading this book. It tickles my funny bones and I feel like laughing out loud.
Love the heroine’s knack of getting into various troubles without even trying and love the way how the hero is always victimized by the heroine’s clumsiness.
The book ended with a big WHAM that made me laugh for a full minute non-stop. I did not have enough of this book and somehow I wish there’s more.
A very light and witty book to read. And if you have a bad day, be sure to pick up this book, it will be worth your time.

Forever Vampire by Michele Hau is one book I would not want to read when I’m all alone at home at night. I find this book, Forever Vampire is rather scary in some ways. Well, it is good that the book is scary, after all, vampires are supposed to be scary and ruthless. This is indeed a thrilling book to read, with unexpected twist and turns along the way.
If you’re a fan of good, scary, but rather romantic fantasy, then this book is for you. But if you’re a scaredy cat like me, then I would recommend you to read this in broad daylight or when you’re not all alone at home in the middle of the night.

Between Two Ends by David Ward is one fantastic, satisfying read. It’s all I ever want in an adventure-fairy tale kind of fiction. You see, I’ve always adored the Arabian Nights… and the story of Scheherezade, the legendary Persian Queen who spin stories night after night for her beloved husband who only marries a virgin and sends them to the gallow the day after their wedding because of the betrayal of his first wife.
And now, reading Between Two Ends, I was hurled into the world of One Thousand Nights where her world became alive. I feel like a child again when I read this book. It has such a positive effect on me.
This is a very interesting and wonderful read, and I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves a good fairy tale adventure.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this ARC in exchange of an honest review from Abrams Books via Netgalley. I was not compensated in any ways for writing this.
‘Legendary Playboy Surgeon’ by Patricia Thayer by is as delicious as the cover, I must say. I’m not always a fan of Harlequin Medical romance line of novels. They’re mostly tearjerker. Thank God this one is not. With all the things that’s going on in my life right at the moment, I could use something lighthearted and heartwarming, and this book is just it. It’s also flirty, and not to mention witty and funny. I’d highly recommend this book to those who are looking for a little escapism with a taste of reality and playfulness in it.
I’d safely rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. I thought the title does not exactly do justice to the book. It should be something more witty rather than just scream for fangirls who would drool for hot, sexy alpha male. I received an ARC of this book from Harlequin Publisher via Netgalley.

Harper Collins is not exactly easy-going when it comes to approving reviewers to review their ARC, and so, I am truly honoured when my request to review One Night is Never Enough by Anne Mallory, published by Harper Collins publisher was approved. Finally.
I’m glad that they approved my request, for if they did not, I would be denied the pleasure of reading such a sinfully delicious story.
One Night is Never enough is pretty arousing, and I couldn’t get enough of it. The plot was rather slow at the beginning, but the pace picked up soon after, and I found myself being hurled into the world of the characters. Thumbs up for One Night is Never Enough by Anne Mallory. I enjoyed the sizzling passion the book had to offer, and I enjoyed the characters’ banter even more.
I highly recommend One Night Never Is Never Enough to all romance lovers, and if I were to rate this book, I’d give it a gleaming 4 out of 5 stars. (less)
If you’re looking for a paranormal historical book with fast-pace, then ‘Whistle Down The Wind’ by Sibelle Stone is the book that you’re looking for. The romance in is this book is not only enough to give you a white-hot orgasm one you flip the pages, but it’s intriguing as well. I love this book as the pace is really fast. The book is hard to put down too and I actually read this book twice even though I’m not really a fan of historical romance. I love how the author transport the readers from the modern world into the world of fantasy. The descriptions and the scenes described in the book is so vivid that I could have sworn that it is real.
I would highly recommend this book to all those paranormal romance lovers. This is one of those great, hard to put down 2 hour read kind book. I enjoyed this book very much and I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Hereafter by Tara Hudson is quite a story, I must say. I don’t intend to spoil the story for you, so all I can say is that this story is quite a remarkable story to be read. It explore human emotions with conviction through the characters. It is nice to see that the heroine in this story is dynamic and have a spunky attitude of not giving up to what Fate dictates.
If you’re a fan of paranormal love story, then this is the book for you, and you wouldn’t want to miss a love story that transcends death.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars for the marvelous storytelling that could evoke a roller-coaster of emotional response even at first read.
For Amelia, time has all but slowed to a stop as her spirit remains stranded alone in the dark waters of a mysterious river. She knows she’s died, but with no recollection of her past life–or her actual death–she’s trapped in one long continuous nightmare, in which she cannot feel anything or interact with anyone. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a teenage boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in a moment of connection, he looks in her eyes and becomes the first person in the world to see that she still exists.
When he touches her, Joshua sparks strange and wonderful sensory feelings in Amelia–at first just momentary flashes, then pulses that become ever stronger as he leads her out of the river and into his life. As Amelia and Joshua uncover who she was and the strange circumstances of her death, new problems arise: somehow, Joshua’s grandmother seems to know exactly what is going on between them, and Eli, a ghost enforcer, is hell-bent on destroying their happiness and dragging Amelia back into the spirit world.
With every touch and the growing feelings that come with them, Amelia and Joshua begin to wonder if there’s something special not only about Joshua but also the dark river that held her captive for so long. Can there truly be love after death?

Okay, after spending 2 hours reading Divorced and Deadly… it’s time to read Revenge is Sweet by Claire Gillman.The cover where the scissors cutting the tie says it all. Another hilarious read that will guarantee you to roll on the floor laughing for hours.
Revenge is Sweet is a packed with tales of remarkable lengths people have gone in order to wreak their revenge. Sometimes on pure impulse, sometimes deliberated after years of resentment…and many more.
Let me quote something from the book:
1. Wedding Anniversary Sex
A husband and his wife had a bitter qurrel on their 40th Anniversary day. The husband yelled ” When you die, I’m going to get a headstone that reads ‘Here Lies My Wife-Cold As Ever’ ”
“Yeah” she replied. “When you died, I’m going to get a headstone that reads: ‘Here Lies My Husband-Stiff At Last”
2. Bedside Vigil
Jake was dying. His wife, Becky, was maintaining a candle-light vigil by his side. She held his fragile hand, tears running down her face. Her praying roused him from his slumber; he looked up and his pale lips began to move slightly.
“Becky, my darling,” he whispered.
“Hush, my love, rest, don’t talk.” she said.
He was insistent. “Becky, I have something that I must confess.”
“There’s nothing to confess. Everything is all right, go to sleep.” she said.
“No, no. I must die in peace, Becky. I… i slept with your sister, your best friend, her best friend, and your mother!”
“I know sweetheart.” whispered Becky.
“Let the poison work.” she added.
Revenge is Sweet is a lovely, hilarious read. A good guide for revenge too. :D Wanna get back at your boss without getting caught? Wanna get back at your husband for cheating on you? Wanna get back at your wife for two-timing you? This is the book to read!(less)
TThere's organized crime, sexy passion and strong characters in Desire and Deception by Sharon Buchbinder. This is my kind of literotica, and I absolutely adored Ms. Buchbinder's work. Desire and Deception is definitely a keeper and I wouldn't mind reading it over and over again when I'm in the mood for some sizzling romance.
I find myself breathless as I read this book. The fantasy came to life . The book is absolutely thrilling and kudos to Ms. Buchbinder for being able to bring the readers to a higher heights of reading.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars, and would anticipate more from Ms. Buchbinder in the future.

‘Tell Me More’ by Janet Mullany is a rather tasteful erotica. It is arousing, but not trashy in any ways like many adult fictions out there. It’s all about dirty little secrets as well as secret fantasy with a blend of nasty desires that the world would not approve of.
If you’re looking for some naughty read… or some dirty little secret that nobody would ever whisper into your ears for the fear of your disapproval, then this is the book that you ought to read.
Highly recommended for those who are bored or those who have nothing better to do with their boring sex life. This book will surely amuse you… if erotica tickles you fancy, that is.

If you like Indiana Jones or Robert Langdon, then you would probably like this biblical-adventure fiction written by Leonard Sweet and Lori Wagner. This is the kind of book that you will either will like it, or you just don't. Seraph Seal is full of symbolic prose and is rather fast paced, and it takes quite a lot to decipher the message behind this book. Some people may not like this book, but I happen to like this book. To me, this book have quite a depth to it, and it was well researched. I like the biblical symbolism used and the foreshadowing in the story, and unlike Dan Brown's stories, I did not feel guilty after reading it for the storyline was not blasphemous in nature. Anyway, the book is well written for a biblical fiction, and I look for more of this kind of story from both of the authors. I would recommend definitely recommend this to those of high taste for fiction. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publisher in exchange of an honest review. I was under no obligation to write a positive review for this book.(less)
Ooopsss, another case of judging a book by it’s cover. I’ve been putting off from reading Heart of Winter because it was not attractive enough for me, and I thought the stories would not be nice. But boy am I glad that I finally got the mood to read this one as it’s an absolute gem. The anthologies ar absolutely fun, thrilling and romantic read, and I wish there was more than just three stories in the book. It is a typical Harlequin with a happily ever after and sizzling romance in it though. But I’m not complaining. I love this book and regretted that I did not read it during Christmas time as it certainly have Christmassy mood in it. All three stories are heartwarning, and I love it to bits.
Highly recommended for those who are in need of a good romance read, and this is definitely a book that you want to curl up under the blanket with.
ps: My favourite was Day Leclaire'sstory. I got to love the whole secret affair thingie. :D
I received this ARC from Harlequin via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book. (less)
While the superstitious Chinese believes that cats bring nothing but sheer bad luck, the Japanese believes otherwise. As you all probably know. I have the same opinion as the Japanese, for without my pet cat, Meow Meow, my family and I would have not survived the fire back then in 2009. She’s our little guardian angel, and she brought so much joy and happiness in our life.
I couldn’t resist it when I saw this book for review in Netgalley. I requested it immediately. I didn’t regret requesting this book, though I was not expecting it to be children’s fiction.
The book tells the story of Tama, a lucky cat. It’s short and sweet. Merely 18 pages, and it’s beautifully illustrated. The book is well researched and portrays Japanese culture and folklore in a rather believable and realistic manner.
I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. Improvements ought to be made for the fonts. I thought it would be better if the fonts used is bigger if the book is targeted at young readers. (less)
