Book Review – Kissing in the Snow by Laura John

Such a sweet “instalove” story!

Dane prefers the quiet life in his cabin in the woods and running his mechanic shop in the small town of Chestnut. His social anxiety makes it difficult to attend social events. Add to that the fact that he’s a gay man living in a small town . . . suffice it to say he hasn’t met a special someone just yet.

Ryan is a doctor in the big city who is feeling the stress of a very demanding boss. When his car ends up in the ditch near Dane’s home in the middle of a blizzard, the two men end up spending a significant amount of time together while they wait for the storm to end and for Ryan’s car to be drivable. But all that alone time in close proximity is just enough for the two men to feel drawn to one another.

Can a big city doctor be happy living on the outskirts of a small town with a quiet mechanic? Does Dane even want the relationship to last once the storm is over?

Book Review – Queen of Madness by Lee Jacquot

A steamy mafia romance inspired by characters from Alice in Wonderland?! Yes, please!

If you like steamy romances this book is for you. If you like your romances on the dark side, this book is for you. If you love stories by authors like W Winters and Sophie Lark, get your hands on this book!

Z has to do whatever he can to get his mother and sister out of the horrific living situation their in. But the only opportunity that presents itself comes with complications. The biggest complication is the fact that his new boss, Onyx, is irresistible. She’s the powerful head of a mafia family with a dark reputation. And Z is supposed to spy on her for the other crime family in town. But she’s not exactly who he thought she was. As Z learns the whole story and sees who Onyx really is he can’t help but be drawn to her and the attraction is most DEFINITELY mutual. But can they get past the secrets and the dangerous lifestyle? Or will the cost be too high?

This is the third book I’ve read by Lee Jacquot and I am learning that I can ALWAYS count on her to have strong female characters, fiercely protective lovers, and cliffhangers that you will simultaneously hate – because they’re cliffhangers, Duh! – and love because they are so artfully crafted. Jacquot is quickly becoming a “must buy” author for me.

I was given an e-book copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
