No Ordinary Love by Angela Weaver

☆☆☆☆1/2


I just finished reading this one, and have to say that I really enjoyed it. The heroine Alex was tough, but wasn't an over the top, bad ass, tough girl. She was smart, and knew when to except help. The hero Xian, was protective, but wasn't some overbearing alpha male- which was a total change from some of the books that I read recently. I enjoyed read the chemistry between Xian and Alex, and I liked the inclusion of Chou in the story. There was was the right amount of suspense, chemistry, and lust in this one. The characters weren't in bed together by page 35, and it was really refreshing to read a story involving a hero and heroine of color that didn't fit stereotypes, or focus of racial difference throughout the entire novel. There weren't 1 billion references to skin color throughout the story- how refreshing!

Visual-Kei Rock Star by Shiree McCarver

☆☆☆☆☆

I just finished reading Visual-Kei Rock Star, and I absolutely loved it! I tend to shy away from romance novels where the hero is a virgin, or the heroine is somewhat older, but I'm so glad I gave this one a chance. I would've truly missed out a great romance novel if I hadn't stepped outside of my comfort zone. The romance between Sadie and Subaru, was funny, touching, emotional, and erotic all at once. I don't want to give away too much of the story because I want everyone to keep an open mind and read Sadie and Subaru's story, but to see the way these characters changed from the beginning to end of the story was awesome. Also, I love asian men, but I'm not familiar with the Japanese glam rock genre, but my interest is definitely peaked; if anyone has any recommendations, please don't hesitate to share.

Kincade's Rose (The Megalodon Team, #1) Kincade's Rose by Aliyah Burke

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


What an awesome start to a military IR romance series!!! Kincade's Rose has everything- sexual tension, the right amount of sex, adventure, insecurities on both the hero and the heroine's part, resolution, and back story, everything!! I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of this series and learning more about the rest of the men in the Megalodon Team, and hopefully see more of Jayde and Tyson.

Dmitry's Closet (The Medlov Crime Family, #1) Dmitry's Closet by Latrivia S. Nelson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


For a series starter, Dmitry's Closet is absolutely amazing. This is combination of mafia/ IR romance that just grabbed me from the first chapter and truly hated to see it end. I think the only thing that kept me from crying at the end was knowing that there are more books to follow. Dmitry is the baddest bad guy hero that I love to love, and Royal the innocent but not too naive heroine that I couldn't help but root for. The relationship building between Dmitry and Royal was very sweet. The tension in this novel kept me on my seat! I love Latrivia S. Nelson's style of writing and look forward to giving many of her other novels a try.

I actually enjoyed Love After War a lot. I liked the whole Falcon Crest setting. It almost felt Judith Krantzish because of the peak into an industry you never thought of before.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Love After War, and I really wish I knew more about wine and such. I guess I just went into it with different expectations.

It is different than Sienna Mynx's other titles. I have to admit the cover helps my love of this book. I see so many bad IR covers that when something comes along with equally attractive people and production it's almost an automatic buy. When buying paper books I'm a total cover snob but have found myself having to lower my esthetic standards with ebooks.

Anino  (anino) | 773 comments I agree with the 3 star rating for "Love after War." It's more than fair because overall, the book could have been better than it was. Not to say that it was bad, but if we hold other writers to a high standard, why not do the same with IRR writers as well?
