Blog Tour: Descended (The Red Blindfold) by Rose Devereux

Blog Tour: Descended (The Red Blindfold) by Rose Devereux

Review The first book in Rose Devereux’s Red Blindfold series, Descended, Book 1, is highly addictive. Once I started it, I found myself reading it in the middle of the night until I finished it. Both Sophie and Marc are very complex characters, and their relationship attracted me more than the erotica within. Sophie Quinn is an American journalist in […]

Book Review: The Millionaire Makeover (A Bachelor Auction Novel) by Naima Simone

Book Review: The Millionaire Makeover (A Bachelor Auction Novel) by Naima Simone

I liked the first book in Naima Simone’s Bachelor Auction series, but I loved The Millionaire Makeover. Gone were the pesky problems that the plot created for the romantic couple in the first novel, and instead readers get a great, swoon-worthy romance. The story centers around Khloe Richardson, and her brother’s best friend, Niall Hunter. Khloe’s friend Morgan takes […]
