Book Review: Kate Meader’s Playing with Fire

The Dempsy clan is back and this time it’s Alex’s story! If you haven’t read the first book in the Hot in Chicago series, it’s not necessary to enjoy Kate Meader’s Playing with Fire. I do recommend it because you’ll get introduced to the Dempsy family and everyone around them. Meader does a pretty good job at keeping spoilers out of books in the series and I do believe you’ll be okay delving into book two. We have really good character development. Alexandra Dempsy is a female firefighter trying to prove to the boys she can handle any job thrown her way. She’s tough, can kick ass, but also is vulnerable. Alex really is a woman who can handle her own and isn’t afraid to take matters into […]

McNaught-E November Excerpt: A Kingdom of Dreams

In case you missed it, I’m participating in McNaught-E November! It’s a month long celebration: fourteen of Judith McNaught’s books have been published for the first time in E-Book format! Each E-Book will contain original, new content (a letter) from Judith McNaught. Today, I’m sharing an excerpt of Chapter 1 of A Kingdom of Dreams.

Known as “The Wolf,” his very name strikes terror in the hearts of his enemies.

Book Review: Gretchen Archer’s Double Knot

Woo-hoo, Gretchen Archer’s Davis Way is back! Double Knot is the fifth book in the series and if you haven’t read the series before, it’s not necessary to enjoy Double Knot. I do recommend you read at least the first book, Double Whammy, because you’ll get to meet the characters and better understand who they are and why they act the way they do. We continue to have good character development. I often find myself struggling to read a series when there’s no character growth or there’s nothing new to discover about the main character. Archer does a great job adding more dimensions to her characters. We find out about Davis’ secret, which is heartbreaking on many levels, but also understanding when we find out about it. I […]

Ruthless corporate raider Matthew Farrell is poised to move in on the legendary department store empire owned by Chicago’s renowned Bancroft family. In the glare of the media spotlight, it’s a stunning takeover that overshadows the electric chemistry between Matt, once a scruffy […]
