Book: Saying at Joe's
Author: Kathy Altman
Genre: Romance
Rating: Star-5

I loved, loved, loved this book! There’s a feeling of coming home that I get when I read a new book in a favorite small town series. With Staying at Joe’s, I got that feeling within the first few pages, despite the fact that I hadn’t even read the first book in the series (I did go back and read that one and loved it, too! The Other Soldier, Book One in the Castle Creek Series, is an equally good read.). more

Book: Their Virgin Hostage: Masters of Ménage, Book 5
Author: Shayla Black and Lexi Blake
Genre: Erotic

I started this series by reading the fifth, but I’ll be back tracking to read the others. Let me start this review by saying I don’t re-read books. In most cases, I read them once and that’s it. In extremely rare instances, I go back and read some books over. I’ve already read this one twice. I expect to read it a lot more.

I never in a million years thought I’d be interested in a ménage with two men, much less three. Sure, another woman appealed to me, but never more than one man. Oh. My. God. How wrong I was. If I wasn’t happily married, I might be out looking for my very own Law, Dominic, and Riley. Hell, who am I kidding? I would be. more
