Hero by Samantha Young

Put down whatever book you’re reading right now and pick up Hero by Samantha Young. I don’t make recommendations like this very often, but this is definitely one of the best romance novels I have ever read. The book begins with Alexa Holland’s return to work after the death of her mother, an event which has understandably left her very shaken. As an assistant to a celebrity photographer, Alexa is shocked to discover that her first shoot is for Caine Carraway, the CEO of Carraway Financial Holdings. Having recently discovered…

The lady risks all

I haven’t read a 19th Century romance in years and unfortunately The Lady Risks All reminded me why that is the case. Set in London in 1823, we follow the lives of two people who while coming from the same social standing, couldn’t be more different from each other. This is the story of Neville Roscoe, the man who gave up everything to save his family and Miranda Clifford, an unmarried woman trying to find her place in the rigid upper class society. We follow them through what could have…

Fall From India Place by Samantha Young (On Dublin Street #4) - for review

I devoured this series in one go and read all the books back to back. I really enjoyed them, but my favourites are book one, On Dublin Street, and book three, Before Jamaica Lane. I was looking forward to reading Fall From India Place as it’s the next generation. It’s from the view point of Hannah, who, when we first met her was in her teens, is now twenty-two and an English teacher. The first part of the book is a combination of the present and flashbacks to Hannah’s past. The flashbacks are…

Deeper - Robin York

Deeper is the first book in the Caroline & West new adult, contemporary romance series. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up this book. I hadn’t heard of the author or the series before (although subsequently have found out it’s the pen name of Ruthie Knox). However, from the first page I was hooked. This book is beautifully written, has two of the most amazing characters I’ve read in a long time – especially within the new adult, contemporary romance genre – and the added aspect of revenge porn which,…

REVIEW: Fireborn by Keri Arthur

Fireborn - Keri Arthur

Fireborn is the latest entry to the Urban Fantasy genre by Keri Arthur. As a huge fan of her Riley Jenson series, I eagerly waited for this book to land on my doorstep so I could dive straight into it. However, I was left with mixed feelings for this promising new series. The premise is good, the writing is good, the characters are great, but unfortunately there are just too many questions left unanswered leaving me confused and frustrated at the end. This is a real shame since it has all…

Happy Birthday

It’s a little difficult to categorise Happy Birthday. I’m not a massive proponent of the books needing to be categorised – if you enjoy them then what does it matter? Besides which, whatever it is, Happy Birthday succeeds at it beautifully. Phoebe Bowler has had better times. After being jilted at the altar by her long term boyfriend she barely has the means to keep hold of what was once their shared flat. Just as she finally seems to be getting her life back on track she finds out that she is living next…
