Who doesn’t love a Cops and Docs lesfic trope? 

What was the book about?
Dylan does not want to fall for a police officer. She knows the heartache that can bring, so when she walks in on the very handsome Finley having sex with one of the hospital nurses, she not only knew that Finley’s a cop but also a reckless one. A reckless cop is something she has no desire for, but she can’t help but imagine what one night with Finley would be like? But it wouldn’t be worth the trouble.

Finley knows she wants Dylan the moment she lays eyes on her, but something is different. She wants to prove herself to this woman who suddenly means more than the flings she’s had in the past. Probably a bad idea though as not only does Dylan not seem interested but she’s Finley’s boss’s sister. It has ‘terrible’ written all over it. 
As Dylan pushes Finley away, it only makes her want Dylan more… 

Featured Tropes
Cops and docs, Family, Medical, Butch-Femme

Book Strengths
I presume this was a grand finale to the Fairview Station series. I’ve read the other two books in the series, so I knew the background of sisters Jazz and Bennett and their now wives, but Dylan is my favourite Carlyle sister without a doubt. You can read these books as a standalone, but I urge you to go back to the start because it just intensifies the story and notably Dylan, who by book three felt like the most important family member aside from her Grandma. Who by the way, is a complete scream. 

I love a sexy butch cop, and Finley Masters was everything I needed. Not only was she damn hot, but she was a tormented soul, and that my dear friends just made her even sexier. Oft… I love a good cops and docs trope. In fact, some of my favourite books are just that, and this did not disappoint.

Chemistry: 
These two had oodles of sexual chemistry, and when they finally hit the sheets, it was just damn hot! HOT!

Heating Rating: 
4 stars

Wrap Up
Great story that I know I’ll be rereading in the near future. I’m secretly hoping I’m wrong that this is the finale and that there’s more to come from the Carlyle Sisters.

The second installment in Carsen Taite’s Legal Affairs series

What was the book about?
Abby Keane won the draw on her three friends and business partners to be the first to go on vacation after they opened their new law firm. When Abby arrives on holiday and meets Roxanne, she gets more than she bargained for in a relaxation vacation.

Roxanne is writing a review for her wedding blog and is scoping out this honeymoon hot-spot for her upcoming wedding review. It’s the perfect place to work with all the Sun, Sea, and unexpected no strings Sex. Both women decide that this will only be a holiday fling with no expectation or question into their life back home.

But when fate brings them back together on home turf and they are on opposing sides at work, can they ignore their fantastic chemistry?

Book Strengths
This was another enjoyable romance from Carsen Taite. I particularly liked the setup and pace of the book. The protagonists fall into bed together first, running with their astounding attraction to each other, and then the rest of the romance follows from there, and I think this was just the kind of easy low angst book I was looking for.

I’m looking forward to the third book in The Legal Affairs Series. I have a feeling Grace is going to be my favourite out of these three legal powerhouses.

Weaknesses
I wasn’t a fan of the character in this one as I had been in Practice Makes Perfect (book 1). I also found at time there was too much info on the events surrounding the couple instead of focusing on them.

Chemistry
Abby and Roxanne had chemistry right off the bat. Their sexy vacation interludes were hot and steamy.

Buckle up for an emotional ride!

What was the book about?
When Jessa and her crew get stranded on Indemnion, a dangerous planet that most intergalactic beings avoid, she has to work out how to get her team home while keeping them alive. In an attempt to navigate danger away from her team, she ends up being rescued by Kylin. A native of Indemnion who was coming to take apart her ship to sell back in her sector.

They begin a fast friendship that is fraught with danger. The closer they become, the more their attraction grows. But Jessa will leave with her team as soon as she can, and Kylin doesn’t need the heartbreak that goes with falling for someone from another planet.

But when temptation becomes too much how will they move on with their lives when they are no longer on the same planet? Featured Tropes Sci-Fi, action-adventure

Book Strengths
Brey Willows is closely becoming one of my favourite authors. When I read Chosen last year, I was hooked and have been excited to read this book, which I thought would be similar but how wrong I was. I kept putting off reading Changing Course because I wanted time to just sit back and indulge in the story a bit without distractions, but let me tell you, I shouldn’t have waited because as soon as I began this book, I realised this was a phenomenal book and nothing like Chosen.

Changing Course is a wonderful book about intergalactic love between two people who were never supposed to meet and how a once chance meeting changed the course of both their lives forever.

Kylin is a beautiful soul who has endured so much in her young life, meeting Jessa opens her eyes to possibilities she shouldn’t dare to dream of. Deciding to indulge in Jessa while she has the small amount of time with her is not something she can stop.

Whereas Jessa is experiencing things she has never imagined before from new cultures, beautiful hidden worlds, and feelings for Kylin she didn’t know existed much less felt.

I think I felt every feeling the main characters were feeling throughout the book with the authors descriptive writing, and I well and truly fell into the world I was reading about.

Also, I want to mention that every time I read one of Brey’s books, she leaves me wanting more from the secondary characters, and this book is no different. She has at least four books worth of secondary characters that she has enticed us with over her last three stand-alone books. I get just as invested in them as I do the main characters. I’d love to crawl inside her imagination for an hour and just see what’s going on in there.

Chemistry
The chemistry between Kylin and Jessa is palpable. You can feel it from every look, touch, and description of how both evoke such strong feelings in one another. They shared another level of intimacy too, which was just as beautiful with little looks and touches that were grounding each other and making one another more vulnerable with each moment spent together. SWOON!

I do love the start of a new series!

What was the book about?
Best friends Abby, Campbell and Grace are starting a new venture and opening their boutique Law firm. Campbell brings in the first big client, a start-up tech company who aren’t getting on with their current legal team.

To win this big client, Campbell needs to work alongside the client’s old firm to show her capability, but she is facing off against Wynne, an old college acquaintance who she is shockingly attracted too.

Can she win the client before falling for the competition?  

Featured Tropes
Lawyer/legal, slow-burn, enemies to lovers

Book Strengths
As with many books that begin a series with a group of friends where each friend will be the main protagonist in one of the books, there is some prep work to do. And this book preps the reader for the friendship of Campbell, Abby and Grace and sets the scene of their new legal firm.

This book is a very slow burn, but when it hits the accelerator, the romance is off and in fine form. I loved Campbell and can’t wait to get more of her in the other books in the series. The romance between Campbell and Wynne is fraught with heaps of reasons they shouldn’t be together from assumptions from when they attended the same college to working to win over the same client for their respective firms. But when they do finally make a move it was worth the wait. And I was crushing hard on Campbell by the end, swoon.  

Watching Wynne lower her guard made for good reading and she was the one holding back the most so when she finally let’s go, it was almost triumphant. 

Also, how sexy are those legs on the cover?

Book weaknesses
Honestly, one of the strengths is also a weakness in this book. Setting the scene of the law firm and the friendship between the three leading ladies ate into some of the romance, and that was the main reason I showed up. This girl is here for the feels. I still can’t get Pursuit of Happiness‘out of my head months later and was hoping for the same buzz. 

Chemistry
Campbell and Wynne are attracted to each other from their first meet-cute, and the chemistry builds throughout the book until there is no holding back.

Why haven’t I read this book before? I need more.  

What was the book about?
Luke Hamilton has been living as a man since she was twelve years old. She is more comfortable in this skin and as long as she keeps people at arm’s length her secret will be secure. 

She has finally left the army and is going to make her way to Oregon to start her new life as an Appaloosa farmer. When one of her army comrade’s pays for a night with a prostitute she shuns the woman as she’s scared of her identity coming out.

When she bumps into the woman, Nora again and this time with her young daughter, Luke starts to think it might be time to adjust her plan of a solo trip to Oregon. She proposes to Nora and is surprised when she accepts.

Together and married, they set off with a Wagon Train to Oregon but they hit many bumps along the way! 

Featured Tropes
Western, Historical, Single mom, Sex-worker & Toaster- oven

Book Strengths
I am not a fan of historical romances normally but Backwards to Oregan was our book for March book Club and honestly, this book wrecked me. What a beautiful story and carefully depicted description of the 1850s in the united states. This book is one hundred per cent a slow burn and possibly slower than the normal but it’s worth every second of your time. 

Is there anyone more perfect than Luke Hamilton? That’s the question you will be asking yourself over and over again after you finish this book. She is deliciously butch in her male persona while keeping her loving, brave and kind attributes. I respected Nora so much for her life choices prior to meeting Luke to the ones she makes throughout their time together. 

Chemistry
The chemistry between Nora and Luke isn’t there in the very beginning but they build on what is an obvious attraction. But by the end, you will learn they have quite the spark.

Hot, did I say HOT???

What was the book about?
This is a book where both the reader and the characters leave their inhibitions behind as soon as the page is turned, and the door is opened. 

There are several stories that are weaved throughout the book of women who are in need of various distractions, fantasies and relief. Will one night of sex and fantasy be enough or will their lives be changed forever.

Mandy is the owner of the club and the reader is taken back in time to reveal why the club exists and how it operates. We see her from 1993 until the present. The other main characters in the story go through their own life changing events as a direct result of going to The Club. 

Featured Tropes
Erotica

Book Strengths:
Each woman’s story is crafted so well that you feel for the characters. They are flawed, loved, happy and sad. The raw emotion shows through. For those who remember the club scene from the 1990s, they will no doubt understand the reasons and evolution for Mandy to finally create a club for women. 

Character Chemistry:
The chemistry is of the charts!

Wrap up:
This is no “run of the mill” erotic novel. The characters are full of life and emotion. The individual characters and their stories will entrance you and draw you in and wanting more. I thoroughly recommend this book. I wish there was a follow up to see where they were now, especially Mandy.

Life has a way of not caring about self-imposed boundaries.

What was the book about?
(Thorn & Thistle #2)
Both Jamie and Sierra managed to rise above tough childhood and become kind and selfless adults. At thirty-seven, Jamie is a respected tattoo artist. She’s on pretty good terms with her ex-wife and her teenage daughter, not so much her brother and alcoholic parents. Her parents are functioning alcoholics, have been throughout Jamie’s childhood. It’s all she’s ever known, and while her brother has decided to stop helping them since they’re not willing to help themselves, she has a very hard time letting go. She’s aware she’s enabling them to some extent, but she needs that feeling of helping, of saving.

Sierra is a twenty-something social worker whose job is threatened by budget cuts. She’s full of energy and ideas. Her latest endeavour is a fundraiser to get disadvantaged kids access to art supplies. When she asks Jamie – who does all her tattoos – for her help, she’s also hoping the attraction she’s feeling for the artist will flourish and lead to something real. She’s down for a fling, Jamie isn’t. Neither does relationships, for reasons linked to their past. Sierra lost her mother at a young age and was rejected by her grandmother until her outcast gay uncle took her in. Jamie doesn’t want to impose her complicated life (the complicated part being mostly due to her parents) to anyone.

Featured Tropes:
Age gap; Children; Tattoos

Book Strengths:
There’s nothing intense about this novel, nothing depressing, but it doesn’t shy from sensitive and painful issues (I’m not talking tattoos, though they play a big part in the story). It’s a good example of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. The Carina Press HEA/HFN promise guaranteed that Jamie and Sierra would find a way to be together, but it never felt artificially straightforward. They both had to work on themselves and on the relationship, accept that not everything would be perfect every day. They’re both relatable and complex characters, with very different personalities. The secondary characters were layered too, from Jordan, the young adult working with Sierra to Jamie’s brother Ryan or her daughter Riley.

Book Weaknesses:
Not a groundbreaking story, but sweet, and sometimes that’s enough.

Character Chemistry:
From the start, Sierra is very clear and open about her attraction to Jamie, while Jamie can’t believe someone as young and lively could really be attracted to her. The chemistry is subtle but there.

Heat Rating:
4

Wrap up:
I’m always impressed when an author takes two characters who have gone through really trying times and still writes a rather light and fluffy story. Fluffy doesn’t mean it’s not meaningful, by the way, but rather that it’s heartwarming without being depressing. That’s what we get here with Inked with a Kiss.

The rollercoaster continues into love and danger

What was the book about?
This is the second book of three in the After Dark Series. You need to read the first book Infiltration first

Ok so you have read Infiltration and want more of these amazing characters. Tyler and Brooke haven’t been together very long and although they foiled the craziness of Michael Thompson there is so much more to this conspiracy and they need to bring it to its end. In the midst of the quest to find the homegrown terrorists there is a smouldering romance coupled with intense danger that drives the story and involves all the characters from the first book. 

Featured Tropes:
Intrigue & Thriller, Romance, Women kicking arse! 

Book Strengths:
Nothing in this second installment is less than the first book. The characters are vivid as are the settings in which it takes place. The strong relationship between Tyler and Brooke is believable as are the burgeoning ones. Jennifer Glass, although a secondary character in the first book, comes into her own in this book. That coupled with Caden Styles makes for a very entertaining and intriguing read. 

Character Chemistry:
Of course, Tyler and Brooke are off the charts when it comes to chemistry. Hot! Since we get to know more about Jennifer and Cayden in this book it was great to see how they all interacted with each other. Each woman had a strong role to play in the novel and not one was left behind.

This is without a doubt Clare Lydon best novel! Outstanding!

What was the book about?
Professional Bridesmaid Jordan has got a great life, and She helps woman get married without fear or worry. She steps in as the main bridesmaid to make sure that the bride in question makes it to the ‘I Do’ with a happy, relaxed smile on her face. And she is excellent at her job.

That was until her latest bride, Abby. She has never had feelings for any of the brides she’s worked with, but Abby is an entirely different story. She just needs to get through the next few weeks, get Abby to the alter and move on. Easy, right?

And Abby? She is questioning everything about her life and her future with the man she thought she was supposed to ride off into the sunset with. Why can’t she get Jordan out of her head? She has never felt this connection to any human before. But she made a promise to the beautiful and kind man she is going to marry. This must be just cold feet, right? 

Featured Tropes
weddings, forbidden love, Toaster oven

Book Strengths
Well, that was a phenomenal read. And intense… so bloody intense. I was on the edge of my seat for the last 30%. Who needs sleep when Clare Lydon is writing lesbian fiction.

I absolutely adore this book in every way possible. It was magical, and I was utterly sucked in. Jordan and Abby’s love story surpassed all my expectations. I don’t want to tell you too much because honestly, it is going to ruin the ride. 

Also, Abby and her mum, Gloria, are from Glasgow. Scotland (My hometown) and I could almost taste the Irn Bru and Tunnocks tea cakes when Jordan organised them for the hen do. Yum! And don’t get me started on my now longing for a square sausage for breakfast.

The secondary characters in the book were amazing, and the book would not have been the same without them, especially Gloria and Delta. In fact, if Clare could write us a story about Delta, I would so be on board for that. SO ON BOARD!!!

Chemistry
💥 The chemistry was fantastic, almost palpable but what really put the flame under the underlying chemistry was the sexual tension because oh my it was sexy!!!! Abby and Jordan lit up the proverbial sheets and then set them alight. The sexual tension was radiating off this reader as much as the character! #holyhotnessbatman

What was the book about?
This is the first of a series of three books.
Tyler Munroe, a marine, was injured in her last tour of duty in Iraq and has now given the task of training a group of super geeks or rather CIA analysts in the arts of unarmed combat. Tyler has to do it in only six weeks. Falling for someone is not in Tyler’s plans especially a recruit. Brooke Hart is one of the six analysts in the group and takes an immediate liking to Tyler. As determined as Brooke is to get close to Tyler, Tyler is as equally as determined not to let her, or is she? In the middle of the training program the group and their leader are through into something that is far more real than the training exercise. A homegrown terrorist group might be the reason that will keep Tyler and Brooke apart, completely.

Featured Tropes:
Intrigue, thriller and romance 

Book Strengths:
I read this book the first time when it first came out in 2015 and it still one that I think about. The premise of the story is fascinating and thrilling. All the characters are so well written. The relationship between Tyler and Brooke is a rollercoaster and keeps you wondering even though you know, well you think you know that they will get together in the end. The scenarios in the “Farm” are so vivid that at times I felt I was there.

Character Chemistry:
Tyler and Brooke spark from the get go. Their evolvement from teacher/recruit to lovers is a wild ride that makes the reader feel all the frustration, the humour and the love throughout. The character chemistry within the group of recruits makes for a richer read.

Chemistry is fierce in this one!

What was the book about?
Ally Santos lives and breathes her small town of Capitola. It has given her strength through hard times and holds all of her favourite memories of the past. Ally has been a widow longer than she has been married, and she may never get over her husband, who was the love of her life. Ally owns a small bar on the beachfront of Capitola, and she lives in the house next door with her son, Theo. Ally also owns a small studio attached to her home, however can no longer rent it to holidaymakers who complain about the noise from the bar. She plans to get a full-time tenant and finally be able to relax. Her new tenant is Madison Wilson who has just begun working close by as a marine biologist.

Ally feels a connection to Madison straight away, and it confuses her. Not only is Ally straight but she is seventeen years older than Ally. This is clearly just a crush? Right?

Featured Tropes
Age-Gap, Lesfic with Kids, Toaster oven

Book Strengths
Every time I read one of Lise Golds books, I can’t believe I waited so long to pick up her books. I have yet to read one of her books I don’t love, and this book is no exception. First off, Ally and Madison are a fantastic pairing, and I really liked that she moved the age parameters even further than I have ever read before…. or that I can remember. Seventeen years feels massive when you are falling for someone, but Madison seemed older and more mature than her age would suggest, and Ally definitely did not seem forty by any stretch of the imagination. And for a forty-year-old, she was sexy, adventurous and had a gorgeous personality. I wasn’t surprised that Ally was drawn to her. I know I would be.

Ally’s son, Theo, was an absolute highlight for me. Not many Lesbian fiction authors write young children well, but Lise gold nailed Theo and his personality. I loved the friendship Madison strikes up with him separate to Ally. It is beautiful and isn’t rushed, so it was nice watching their friendship development.

There are many elements to this book, these two have many a mountain to climb, and it won’t be easy. I won’t say any more just jump on board and enjoy the ride! Also, we had cameos from the other characters from the first three books. Yay! Always a pleasure to hang out with the southerners.

Off the chart is the only way to describe the intensity of Ally and Madison’s chemistry. They really enjoyed each other sexually, but they also had a lovely undercurrent of friendship that was at times even more intimate and affectionate than the sex.

Another pretty good debut novel, I’m reading a lot of those lately, and that’s really good news.

What was the book about?
Coming back to her office and her work football team (football as in soccer) after a business trip, Iris meets Cameron, a new American colleague and teammate. Still hurting not so much from the failure of her last relationship but from the way she behaved after the break-up, Iris has closed herself off to any idea of falling in love again. She’s not immune to Cam’s charms however, and the fact that her new friend is engaged to a ma, and won’t be staying in London forever helps her keep their relationship in check, or so she believes. Cam is not as straight as she seems, and not as indifferent to Iris as she thinks.

Featured Tropes: 

Workplace Romance, Big City, Sports, Friends to Lovers

Book Strengths:
The London setting is a nice change. Both main characters are endearing, and the web of friends and teammates around them is full of interesting people. I especially liked how both Cam and Iris have to learn to accept themselves and their past mistakes. Iris hates herself for all the meaningless sex she threw herself in after her breakup, and needs to forgive herself. As for Cam, she’s allowed her mother, then her fiancé to decide for her all her life, and she’s finally learning how to stand for herself and what (or who) she wants. 

Book Weaknesses:
In the beginning, One Small Step was too much tell, not enough show, and I was worried I wouldn’t get into the story, but it got a lot better after a while. The pace picked up, and I lost myself in Iris and Cam’s growing feelings and doubts in a very enjoyable way. 

Character Chemistry:
When they first meet, neither Iris nor Cam is looking for a relationship other than friendship. It’s the unmistakable chemistry between them that makes that friendship turn into something more despite their best intentions.

Cash is with a BANG!

What was the book about?
Cash Braddock is back! And she and girlfriend, Laurel are going after the bad guys once more. This time they are after college kids who are drugging young women with ketamine and assaulting them. The stakes get heightened when Laurel’s sister, Lane is assaulted. Now It’s personal. 

Featured Tropes
Anti-hero, crime, series

Book Strengths
Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster. Because in reading this book, there are a few things I can guarantee. 1. You are going to laugh. A lot. 2. The sarcasm is phenomenal, and one of the main reasons I adore this series. And 3. Be prepared to feel emotionally destroyed afterwards because honestly, this book is all heart, but there are some hard to read moments. Is it worth it? Fuck yes!!! 

Well hell, Cash has stolen my heart once again. She and Laurel are soul mates. Plain and simple. I’m not sure there is a couple out there in Lesbian Fiction that, by almost all definitions, shouldn’t be a couple but somehow work in the lovely “meant to be” kind of way. 

Yes, Cash is technically the bad guy with her drug-dealing past, but She’s also so sweet and loving. She genuinely loves Laurel like she loves no one else and you can almost see her hurting when Laurel is hurting and happy when Laurel’s happy. Gah! She’s somewhat perfect —especially the moments when she is supporting Lane whilst also trying to support Laurel through a horrific time. I probably see an even deeper side to Cash in her moments with Lane. They really sparked a beautiful friendship. 

Chemistry
The chemistry between Cash and Laurel? Oh, Hell, yes!! It’s there from book one and just gets stronger and stronger. Sexually and non-sexually these two have so much chemistry it emanates off the page.

Awesome read!

What was the book about?

Falling for your the aunt of your best friend was never going to be easy, especially when the aunt is more like her mum. But that’s what happened to Maggie when she met Carrie’s aunt Lynn. But Lynn pushed her away, making it clear it wasn’t going to happen for them. Years later, they are now working in the same hospital and even living in close proximity. Lynn is no longer married, and Carrie is no longer residing in the same state (even though she still sees them often). Is their chance to have what they both wanted years before? Or is Lynn going to let the worry that a relationship with Carrie’s best friend will not only break her and Maggie but could also ruin her relationship with Carrie forever? Or maybe it’s just perfect timing?

Featured Tropes
Age Gap, Doctors – Nurses, Medical, second-chance

Book Strengths
This book is the kind of book you sit down to on a Sunday morning with a cup of tea and the sun shining in your bedroom only to realise at 5 pm you’ve not left your bed because it was too good to stop reading. That sums up how I feel about this romance by the formidable Dena Blake. She keeps getting better and better and surprises me every time. The pace in this book was excellent, and I really liked the build-up to Lynn finally giving in to her feeling for Maggie. Especially her little moments of jealousy… those were fun to read.

Lynn is definitely a woman to be reckoned with, and the fact she was older and confident in herself just made her so ridiculously sexy! I loved the idea of being so unbelievably attracted to someone and knowing it’s mutual but not being able to do anything about it. I think what I especially liked in this book was there were so many things Lynn assumed and had preconceived ideas about who Maggie was. But Maggie just showed her time and time again that she was A. not like Lynn’s ex and more about her job than Lynn and B. was not too young. It often happens in age gap romances that the younger of the couple is seen as too young, but It’s really shown that, in fact, they are not too young.

Dena Blake proved Maggies worth with every moment she had page time. In fact, at one moment in the book, I shook my head and said: “Come on, Lynn get with the program Maggie is wonderful!”

Chemistry

The chemistry was undeniable between Maggie and Lynn, and it ramped up the more time they spent with each other. Their stolen moments when Carrie was around, were the best. I think any age-gap romance ramps up the chemistry for me because I just imagine it being all hot and steamy!
