Her Surprise Engagement by Ashlee Mallory

I’ve read the first book in the Sorensen Family series and love it. I didn’t actually realize Her Surprise Engagement is part of the series, but now that I do, I’m definitely going back to reading books 2&3.


Daisy Sorensen has been having a tough couple of years since her husband left her for a younger version. His debts and life’s hardship fell all on her, along with being a single mom to their three children. So when she’s finally starting to stabilize her life, still far from having all she’s ever wanted (be a business owner, particularly, a bakery owner) she learns her no good ex has gone back on his promise to the kids to take them to Disneyland. Not one to disappoint her children, she gets an offer from her sister in law to enjoy the family’s lake house. Continue reading “Her Surprise Engagement by Ashlee Mallory”

Regret by Christina Lee

Regret RDB BannerSometimes there are authors you can’t help but read. And Christina Lee is one of them. I have always loved her storytelling and every time my addiction is reaffirmed. Regret is one of those stories you know will stay with you, and it has. It’s a beautiful take on tragedy and healing.



I wonder how many of us experience something so profoundly and it leaves such a lasting (sometimes negative) impression on their lives that they truly regret their role in it.  Continue reading “Regret by Christina Lee”

The Cartographer by Tamsen Parker

You cannot possibly realize how long I’ve been waiting for this book. Unconsciously, since the time I read Personal Geography. At that time, I didn’t even know there was going to be a Rey story. Consciously, since December 2015. That’s when I met Tamsen Parker and we had a great few hours of dining, talking and walking around NYC.

I’m going to reread all six books in the Compass series, but not before I write my review of The Cartographer (cleverly titled book, might I add).

I’m still in denial over the fact that the series is complete. But what a way to end it. Yowza!


Rey is a character that’s involved in each and every story throughout the first five novels in the series. He’s India’s best friend and “trainer”, he’s the one most responsible for her ending up with Crispin, and he’s the most selfless character in the kink world I think I’ve ever read.

In TC we get glimpses of his childhood by way of explaining some of his considerations and decision making process in his line of work and in his personal life.


Ok, I didn’t LOL’d, I just really love this GIF. Continue reading “The Cartographer by Tamsen Parker”

Stay by Elle Kennedy & Sarina Bowen

It’s like I can’t get enough of this duo’s words. I absolutely love everything they co-write (also separately, but that’s besides the point.)

WAGs is one of those spin-off series that just perfectly keep the reader in that awesome world they love. And I do love the Toronto boys.


So after reading Good Boy, and enjoying Blakey’s HEA with J-Babe, It’s Matt Eriksson’s turn to get his heart mended after his ex-wife basically blew it to pieces. Continue reading “Stay by Elle Kennedy & Sarina Bowen”
