Hi, all. I just wanted to let you all know that Rob and I unexpectedly lost our sweet pug, Glen, yesterday, so the blog may be a little quiet for a few days. In addition to falling behind in my reading and posting while everything was happening, I find myself without much drive right now. I have several books I’m in the process of reading, and I’ll get the ARC reviews posted when they’re due, but there will probably be fewer posts than normal while I catch back up and get through this. He had a chronic illness called IMHA (immuno-mediated hemolytic anemia), but it was being managed and no one expected him to develop blood clots in his lungs out of nowhere. So this hit us out of the blue. Rob and I don’t have kids, we just had Glen, so the house is extremely quiet and almost eerie. […]

This book was so good! This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for from this series! Mercy and Riley were amazing. So hot together, both strong and dominant, neither damaged, neither expected to roll over and give up their entire lives in order to be together. This was so great! – Smut Matters

Blog Tour – Dodging Temptation by Avery Flynn. Releasing 9/14
There wasn’t a ton of drama to this, just two people finding their way to each other. All of the sex happens off the page, and they fall in love over the course of a few days. I’m not sure I buy making big life decisions after such a short span of time, but this is hardly the first romance novel to do that. If you’re looking for a light-hearted, quick read, be sure to pick this one up. – Smut Matters
