Review: The Reaper - Barbara Devlin

The Reaper by Barbara Devlin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After fleeing an unscrupulous business partner, who lured her into a perilous trap in order to steal her fortune, Charitye Vanderley is assaulted and left for dead. Saved by a less than honorable, altogether vulgar but handsome hero, she must survive in a foreign land, surrounded by strangers, and she knows not who to trust. Desperate, she places her fate in Blade Reyson's callused hands, as she has no one else to defend her, but her errant knight is not what she believes. Alone and afraid, she takes a leap of faith on her unconventional champion, sets sail for Virginia, and prays Blade will not disappoint her, but she does not guard her heart.

The last in a legendary line of motely pirates, Blade 'Reaper' Reyson sails the seas in search of prize and booty, but he knows the world is changing, and his days as a buccaneer are numbered. When he rescues a young woman floating in the waters ne…

Review: Gone With the Ghost - Erin McCarthy

Gone With The Ghost by Erin McCarthy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bailey Burke has had a rough six months—it’s not easy thinking your romantic overtures toward your best friend caused him to kill himself. Except that’s exactly what happened. Ryan is very much dead, having shot himself with his own police-issued gun. Guilt and grief shouldn’t cause hallucinations though, but six months after Ryan went into the ground, Bailey is freaking out and swearing his ghost is standing in her kitchen. Which he is…

Ryan claims he didn’t commit suicide, but was murdered, and he needs Bailey to help him find his killer so he can earn his ticket out of purgatory. Ryan’s counting on a stairway to heaven, as opposed to wings, since that might be a little unmanly for a cop, even a dead one.

An expert in home design, with her own staging business, Bailey can tell you where to place a couch to improve flow and comfort, but solving a crime? Not her area of expertise. But with help from Ryan’s former partner, Marne…

Review: Protected by my Boss - Tia Siren

Protected By My Boss by Tia Siren
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My secretary needs my protection. 
I’m a billionaire. I’m used to taking what’s mine. 
But Joanna is the one woman I’ll keep out of my bed. 
Don’t get me wrong. She’s hot. 
Curves that make a man hard - and the purity of an angel. 
But a man like me doesn’t crush angels. 
Her psycho ex is coming after her. 
I’ll hide her away in my mansion out of town. 
Just me and her – and my desire to f*ck her. 
But I won’t touch her. 
I won’t take advantage of her. 
She wants to show me her gratitude. 
Begs to repay me. 
I’ll let her strip for me and then picture her body later - imaging it’s her hand on my c*ck. 
That’s as far as I’ll let it go. 
But who the hell am I kidding?
I’m hard - but I’m not made of steel.

It was a good story, but I had some serious issues with the timelines being off and the grammatical errors. How can someone have just gone missing 8 hours prior, flip a cou[ple pages and it's been 2 days, go forward a couple mor…
