Jen's Review: "Wrong to Need You"

Wrong to Need You by Alisha Rai
Publisher: Avon (November 28th, 2017)
Series: Forbidden Hearts, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance


He wasn’t supposed to fall in love with his brother’s widow…

Accused of a crime he didn’t commit, Jackson Kane fled his home, his name, and his family. Ten years later, he’s come back to town: older, wiser, richer, tougher—and still helpless to turn away the one woman he could never stop loving, even after she married his brother.

Sadia Ahmed can’t deal with the feelings her mysterious former brother-in-law stirs, but she also can’t turn down his offer of help with the cafe she’s inherited. While he heats up her kitchen, she slowly discovers that the boy she adored has grown into a man she’s simply unable to resist.

An affair is unthinkable, but their desire is undeniable. As secrets and lies are stripped away, Sadia and Jackson must decide if they’re strong enough to face the past...and step into a future together.

Pat's Review: The Outpost

The Outpost by Devney Perry
Publisher: Devney Perry (November 7, 2017)
Series: Jamison Valley, 4
Genre: Romantic Suspense


Trapped in his tiny mountain cabin, she didn't expect to fall for his big heart.


Exposing a prominent criminal family with an investigative news report didn’t exactly work out the way Sabrina had hoped. Instead of basking in the glory of her article’s success, she’s on the run from a powerful man who wants her dead. To stay safe, she’s forced to trade one bad situation for another. Stuck in the Montana wilderness, she’s secluded from anything resembling civilization or the modern-day world. The only good thing about her situation is the gorgeous mountain man assigned to protect her. Too bad he isn’t the slightest bit interested in a city girl like her.


Beau likes his life quiet and simple. Give him a peaceful day hiking in the woods with his dog, and he’s a happy man. He has no use for large crowds, noisy cities or dramatic women. So when a hotshot reporter rolls into town, dragging her big-time problems with her, he should have run for the hills. Instead, he volunteered to keep her safe. Bringing her into his world won’t be easy, but if he can convince her that Montana isn’t as terrifying as she believes, they might just be the perfect match.

Throwback Review: Pink Satin

Ready for another walk down romancelandia lane? Jen's got another Throwback Review for a category title from the 80s. This was the first romance she ever read -- talk about a *serious* throwback!

Note: this review might be triggering to some as Jen discusses sexual harassment as it occurs in the book compared to what's going on lately in the media, including pulling quotes from various articles about it all.

I totally understand if you need to skip this review because of that. It's okay! 😃



Pink Satin by Jeanne Grant
Publisher: Jove Pubns; First Edition edition (October 1, 1985)
Genre: Contemporary Romance / Category Romance


With the figure of a sex symbol and a career as a lingerie executive, Greer Lothrop is used to attracting more than her fair share of male attention. After years of unwanted stares, she is far more comfortable playing mother hen than femme fatale.

She's shocked when there's nothing motherly about the feelings her new neighbor, engineer Ryan McCullough, arouses in her. She's never been attracted to a man of such raw sexuality before. What is it about Ryan that has her confiding in him—and falling into his arms—within hours of meeting?

It's clear Ryan isn't interested in Greer for her chicken soup. He's not falling for her girl-next-door routine either, no matter how hard she tries to deny their chemistry. He knows there's a passionate woman behind the facade—and he knows just how to awaken her...
