Review: Forever Wicked by Piper Lawson

This is almost an extended epilogue for the series, as it focuses mainly on Haley and Jax’s wedding planning and wedding but it’s the perfect way to end the series. It’s funny, sweet and romantic, just like everything else about their story. I always want more whenever I fall in love with a story but… Continue reading Review: Forever Wicked by Piper Lawson

Review: Bad Girl by Piper Lawson

We pick up right where the previous book left off and the story continues. The first book was lots of teasing and waiting but things really heat up in the second book. Haley’s relationship with Jax is so complicated in some ways yet very simple in others, I couldn’t put this book down. I loved… Continue reading Review: Bad Girl by Piper Lawson

Review: Wicked Girl by Piper Lawson

The story picks up two years after the ending of Bad Girl, with Haley and Jax no longer together. I hated the way the last one ended and while they ultimately get their HEA, I think two years was too long. Maybe it makes sense because of the age gap and the different worlds they… Continue reading Review: Wicked Girl by Piper Lawson

Review: Good Girl by Piper Lawson

Let me start by saying these books are short and the first two end in cliffhangers so if you’re going to pick up the first one, you’re committed to 3 books. That’s not my favorite thing because it forces readers to choose between DNF and buying more books, which isn’t very nice but I set… Continue reading Review: Good Girl by Piper Lawson

This is Sam and Aisling’s story and it feels like I’ve waited forever. Sam Brennan is the man I’ve wanted to know more about since Sparrow and Ainsley Fitzpatrick is easily the most intriguing of the ladies. She’s so reserved, we don’t know her at all.

Playlist: Corrupt: Devil’s Night Book 1 by Penelope Douglas

When I started writing, my work was always set to music. My poetry was paired up with specific songs, my characters all have theme songs and every story, plot and scene have playlists. I only discovered romance novels relatively recently and until then, none of my favorite books came with playlists from the author. I’ve… Continue reading Playlist: Corrupt: Devil’s Night Book 1 by Penelope Douglas

Music as Inspiration

I can't stress enough how much I love music. It's always playing in my life because it's my addiction and my vice. My entire world has a soundtrack. I have thousands of songs and hundreds of playlists of every genre, many of which would be politely considered eclectic but my friends call them downright freaking… Continue reading Music as Inspiration
