Reviews for Books out Week of December 4, 2017

LoveOnTheTracksLove on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker (contemporary, Swerve, December 2017)

Love on the Tracks by Tamsen Parker is a contemporary romance, the first in the Snow and Ice Games series featuring a rock star hero and an athlete heroine (in luge) who fake a relationship for the media. But the feelings that these two have for each other are not in any way fake and what starts out as a stunt turns into the real deal. This is a fun, feel-good romance with a sexually-strong heroine who isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. One thing that stands out in this book is how Parker deals with the issue of sexual consent. These two actually talk before they get intimate and are explicit about their intentions to have sex together. Zane is very clear about needing permission - and Parker is able to make this point without it being pedantic or taking the reader out of the story.

There were some fabulous historical romances released this past week - ones that made me so very happy to read. The first is Janna MacGregor’s The Bride Who Got Lucky (read my individual review here). But I enjoyed several others as well: Valerie Bowman’s The Right Kind of Rogue, Joanna Shupe’s A Daring Arrangement and Eloisa James’ Wilde in Love. All four are very different reads, but each have wonderful romances with fantastic characters that make these romances shine.


RightKindRogueValerie Bowman’s The Right Kind of Rogue, the 8th book in the Playful Brides series, is a story featuring a heroine (Meg Timmons) who has been in love with her best friend’s older brother (Hart, Viscount Highgate) for years. Hart finally decides that it is time to marry which forces Meg to try to get him to notice her. Meg enlists the aid of another friend (she doesn’t want her best friend to know) to help with the matter. With a new wardrobe and some pointers on shedding her wallflower status, Meg does indeed catch Hart’s attention. However, there is a long-standing and bitter feud between Meg and Hart’s parents, making a match nearly impossible. Yet, the feelings developing between these two are real and intense - and maybe a bit out of control.
