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. […]

ARC Review – Her Unexpected Detour by Kyra Jacobs

ARC Review – Her Unexpected Detour by Kyra Jacobs

Posted September 13, 2015 by smutmatters in ARC, Contemporary, Reviews / 0 Comments

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
