Wanderer: The Moncrief Legends by Carol Sabel Blodgett – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

RNAA Rating – Five Roses

   

Title: Wanderer: The Moncrief Legends

Author: Carol Sabel Blodgett

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Thriller/ Paranormal

Synopsis: 

Beyond the wall of computers, all the books rested. Perhaps I belonged to every one of them. Fiction: Immortals aren’t real. Romance: I had a lovely wife who I adored. Horror: She died, in my bed, with my best friend. Mythology: I wish all of this was a myth. There she was. Curled up in an overstuffed chair. Like a child, I darted between the rows of books. She would give the occasional smile as she read. We stayed like this for some time—her reading, me watching. This was exciting. A new person. She was beautiful. That was three days ago. I’ve been reduced to watching her from afar, from this secluded spot across the street from her house. I’m Seth. I was named after Adam and Eve’s third child. It’s been centuries since I’ve been with a woman. Immortality can be a nuisance like that. The time, where does it go? I must make her mine. Some would say that I stalk. I don’t see it that way at all.

What I Loved About this Book: 

This is an expertly-crafted supernatural thriller/suspense novel that will keep you guessing until the very last page. The book features well-drawn characters that are unusual yet relatable and are easy to root for. Lots of terrific twists and turns, and room for plenty more in the series. Don’t miss this one!

What Could Have Been Better:

This book was a bit darker than what I usually read, but that’s not really a criticism of the book. It’s more of a personal preference. 

Sexual Content: Yes. 

Overall: An intense, romantic, intriguing read.

Penalty by Jacob Chance – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

RNAA Rating – Three Roses

 

Title: Penalty

Author: Jacob Chance

Genre:  Contemporary/Sports Romance

Synopsis:

He’s the bad boy quarterback of Boston University’s football team. As the son of a former NFL player, he’s showered with attention and praise twenty-four-seven. One flash of his smile and all the girls fall at his feet – or should I say to their knees? 
And then there’s me.

Brady Lincoln is the last person I want attention from. He’s the kind of guy my father warned me about. His play on the field is legendary and his play with the ladies, even more so. I’ve managed to stay off his radar until recently. 

What happens when the cocky quarterback breaks all the rules to win my heart? 

What I Loved About this Book: 

The main characters, Harlow and Brady, had great chemistry. I do enjoy a good sports romance, and this one was well written. There was an interesting twist toward the end that I didn’t see coming, and it’s always nice to be surprised.

What Could Have Been Better: 

I would have liked to see a bit more character development, though, as the leads had a lot of the usual characteristics you find in romance novels. Mainly, it was the bad boy who gets around and the innocent, good girl.

Sexual Content: Yes, explicit.

Overall: This was a sexy, entertaining read.

New Release – Biker Romance – Goldie by Chiah Wilder

Goldie, Road Captain of the Night Rebels MC, loves women and women love him. He’s a simple man who only needs his Harley, whiskey, and women—in that order—in his life to make it hum. Being an officer of an outlaw motorcycle club, the women are more than willing to accommodate the blond, ripped, and tatted biker. His rule is simple: pleasure without commitment. It’s served him well until one night when she walked into the club’s tattoo shop wanting an ink job on her sexy bottom.

For reasons he doesn’t understand, he’s drawn to her.
He wants to get to know her.

Then he finds out her name is Hailey Shilley. He hasn’t seen her since she moved away from Alina eleven years ago.

She’s off limits.
She’s his best friend’s little sister.
He has to forget about her.

Problem is he can’t get her or her sweet tattoo out of his mind.

Hailey Shilley left Alina when she’d first started high school. She’s back to help her aunt run her floral shop. When she stumbles into the tattoo parlor with her two friends, she doesn’t expect to find the most gorgeous guy she’s ever laid eyes on. His ripped body, strong jaw, and to-die-for tats make her tingle all over. She can’t get him out of her mind.

When she finds out he’s her brother’s best friend, she can’t believe what a hunk he grew up to be. But her brother warned her about him. Told her he’s an outlaw biker and a player. She always had a crush on him, but now that they’re both grown up, she isn’t sure she wants to risk her heart to him.

While Hailey tries to put aside her fears and Goldie his loyalty to his buddy, women are being terrorized and female bodies are turning up all around the county. A madman is loose and he’s closing in on the women Goldie holds dear to him. Can he be stopped in time?

This is the fourth book in the Night Rebels MC Romance series. This is Goldie’s story. It is a standalone. This book contains violence, sexual assault (not graphic), strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. If any of these issues offend you, please do not read the book. HEA. No cliffhangers! The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.

The book is available on AMAZON and KINDLE UNLIMITED.

Hard for My Boss by Daryl Banner – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

RNAA Rating – Five Roses

   

Title: Hard for My Boss

Author: Daryl Banner

Genre: M/M romance

Synopsis: Trevor, the young summer intern, is totally SCREWED.
Working at Gage Communications is an opportunity of a lifetime.
But will Trevor be able to handle it? Or will he succumb to the tension?
The tension is in his pants, by the way.
Between a heavy workload and a hunky, controlling boss, Trevor’s summer just got a lot hotter and harder than he bargained for.

What I Loved About this Book: 

I admit am not a big fan of the alphahole trope. I know lots of romance readers love it, but to me being cocky and rude is just not sexy. In this book, Ben was bigger, stronger, and more powerful than Trevor, and I loved, loved, LOVED that Trevor did NOT bow to his will. At least not at first. This was a terrific read through and through. It had a HEA, but was pretty unpredictable which was a pleasant surprise. There were some cool twists with both characters and plot, which made this a truly page-turningly good read. 

What Could Have Been Better: 

A minor formatting quibble, but there is an extra space in between each paragraph. It’s technically not proper formatting and I find it distracting to read. Normally, this is an automatic no for me on the book, but I’ve read another book from this author (that was properly formatted) so I gave this one a chance. I’m glad I did. 

Sexual Content: Yes. Explicit.

Overall: A terrific read from beginning to end. Character is really a strong point in this one. Highly recommended.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Sweet and with a bit of spice, it was a terrific small town romance with well-developed characters and an engaging plot. The author truly captures the flavor of a small town and even includes a brownie recipe at the end. What’s not to love?

Love on Fire – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Recommended Book

 

This was a light, sweet, and steamy read with characters you can’t help but root for. It also featured a main character who was bisexual which is rare and a nice change of pace. It’s part of a series, but can easily be read as a standalone. You can buy it HERE on Amazon.

Recommended Romance Read – Bedside Manner

 

This was a sweet, sexy story about two guys finding their happy ever after while dealing with problems concerning family and society. This was the second book in a series, but it flows perfectly well as a standalone. I didn’t even realize it was part of a series until I finished it. Well-written story, tender and poignant.

Recommended Romance Read – Football Sundae by Daryl Banner

 

Here is my five-star review:

This was a terrific novel followed by two terrific novellas. The main novel was a sweet (literally, as one guy was a baker) and steamy story about two guys who knew each other in high school and then fall in love after graduation. A wonderfully engaging, romantic, and upbeat novel that just makes you feel good.
