Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley

For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either.

Unavoidable – Book Review

unavoidable

Unavoidable is Part 1 of the Royal Affair trilogy.

It’s not very often that a book has me squeaking and hugging myself with glee while reading it, a huge sappy smile on my face as I savour every delicious page.

Unavoidable is that book. Everything about it is fantastic; I found myself rooting for Princess Lucy from the very first page, from her obvious unhappiness at the role she is trapped in by her birthright, to her desire to be more than just the figurehead role for her people.

Broken Girl – Book Review

broken girl

 

Broken Girl by Gretchen de la O

My name is ROSE NEWTON, and I sell my body on the streets of San Francisco. I’m what you call society’s dirty little secret. On the outside, I’m in control, the woman who makes her own rules and gives nothing away for free. Inside, I’m broken and numb. Torn and shattered by my past, my life is nothing more than the lost fragments of what’s left of me.

SHANE WEST represents everything that’s foreign to me. He’s brave, kind, funny, gorgeous and persistent. When fate brings us face to face, an undeniable attraction blazes between us. He becomes the constant I’ve never had and the only man I’ll ever trust.

There is nothing simple about falling in love when you’re keeping a secret like mine.
