I was HOOKED from the very first page, and I devoured the whole book at an alarming rate - I loved it! There are times when you can tell that an author is having FUN with a story, and this is one of those instances. This couple is drawn together like magnets, and their chemistry... Continue Reading →
June 1st can't get here fast enough - I'm really looking forward to this one! We met this antihero in previous books in the series, and he's finally embraced his bad side. That means the dynamics in this mafia-focused, arranged marriage romance should be pretty damn interesting... especially since he's got a brand new blushing... Continue Reading →
The Brit AND The Enigma are 100% required reading prior to this book. And if you want to go into The Resurrection *truly* blind, then this isn’t the review for you. Phew. What a WILD ride! Malpas clearly left plenty of breadcrumbs in the first two books, because this masterfully sews two different love stories... Continue Reading →
One of my most highly anticipated reads of the year... and I've got no idea what to expect! I loved both The Brit and The Enigma, and The Resurrection promises to be the book that ties both of these dark and intense mafia romances together. Is it going to follow both couples? Introduce a new... Continue Reading →
Who doesn’t love a good trope? Everybody’s got a favorite, from tense enemies to lovers reads to playful fake relationship romances. I’ve always got certain expectations when I start reading a story that plays up a trope, and the books on this list all exceeded those expectations. I’ve selected the two books that I think...

As 2021 comes to a close, I'm revisiting my 20 favorite romance novels of the year, and J.T. Geissinger is an author whose work easily made my list. Every book in her steamy and intense mafia romance series, Queens & Monsters, has been excellent, but Savage Hearts might just be my favorite. Read on for my book review, details on the series, a spotlight on the author, and plenty of quotes to give you a feel for the vibe!
As 2021 comes to a close, I'm revisiting my 20 favorite romance novels of the year, and that includes Jodi Ellen Malpas' dark and steamy mafia romance, The Brit. Read on for my book review, details on the series, and plenty of quotes to give you a feel for the vibe!
I'd be hard-pressed to think of an author who has delivered more 5-star reads for me than J.T. Geissinger, and often I don't even read the blurbs or know what I'm getting into ahead of time with her books. I just one-click and go along for the ride! She's one of the first (non-Nora Roberts)...

There’s a reason why I’ve been one-clicking J.T.’s books without hesitation for years, and she just keeps getting better and better. I never know where the story will lead, but I’m always eager to hang on for the ride. This series has been blazing hot and immensely compelling, so this had a lot to live... Continue Reading →
"She’s toxic. But to me, she’s a balm. And I’m fatal. But to her, I’m life." Whoa boy, this was a lot to handle - and I absolutely LOVED it! I completely ignored real life for two straight days and just dove into this immersive, intense, hot, violent, and exhilarating read. I don't know how... Continue Reading →
Okay, so this is going to be a weird 5-star review, but just bear with me for a minute, lol. I wasn't sure that I even liked this book for the first 30% or so - I was more fascinated than anything, and it definitely took awhile to wrap my head around the characters. This... Continue Reading →
What a WILD ride! Geissinger's books are always addictive, and her mafia romances have been particularly compelling - with this being no exception. These two were FIRE together, and I was absolutely hooked from start to finish. I'll openly admit that I had a little more trouble than usual getting behind this particular couple, not... Continue Reading →
While the writing is a little rough around the edges, the soapy quality of this light(ish) mafia romance held my attention. It’s not a storyline that I have EVER read before, which is always a huge plus for someone who reads as many romance novels as I do. There was something about that blurb (and... Continue Reading →
Sexy and mysterious, the hero in this book runs the show. From the moment Alessia lays eyes on Luca, he commands all of her attention - and that’s exactly the way he wants it. The author lets his motives unravel slowly throughout the book, leaving the reader in a state of unease about what he... Continue Reading →
