Love Unchained’s review of Dirk Tales, The Book by Dan Skinner

Dirk Tales, The BookDirk Tales, The Book by Dan Skinner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can count on one hand the number of authors who, when they release a new book, I buy it immediately. I can reduce that number to one, yes one, the number of authors who, when they release a new book I literally drop everything I’m doing and everything I’m currently reading and read his book. Why? I think I said it in a previous review….Dan is like a Van Gogh with words (and when you read about and see what he does with his photography you know he’s a genius with a camera too – the man is just crazy talented). You get lost in his words as if you’re really there, experiencing everything, because he paints the picture so damn well. With these tales of his often hilarious, many time embarrassing and sometimes poignant moments with the one-of-a-kind Dirk, I actually feel like I’m sitting in a room with them somewhere laughing so hard I’m stealing Dirk’s kleenex box from him (wink wink) to dry my tears. These stories will make your heart sing in this crazy, effed up world. Read them and you will know without a doubt that there is still hope for the future because the world can’t have screwed up too bad if there are still people like Dirk in it. And thank goodness there’s a gifted man like Dan to show us that.

Love Unchained’s review of Undercover by T.A. McKay

UndercoverUndercover by T.A. McKay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. Intense? Uh,yeah, like tons of it. So intense you’re on the edge of your seat and can’t put it down. And that good too. And a story line that grabs you and has you hanging on to the very end. And chemistry? Off the charts hot. Right off the bat you adore Drake and then you feel for him when the confusion hits. And Ryden? Well, see, here’s the thing about Ryden. He’s bad, he’s a really bad man…but I’m smiling as I think about him…do you see where I’m going with this? Do you get it? No? Read it….you will.

Love Unchained’s review of Overexposed by Megan Erickson

Overexposed (In Focus, #4)Overexposed by Megan Erickson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s just something about the moon. I’ve always known this from when I was a little girl and my dad and I would look at it through a telescope. It brought us together then It still does now decades later. And it brought these two beautiful men together too. Lovable, sweet yet broken Levi and quiet, sheltered and shattered Thad somehow find common ground, understanding, forgiveness and love underneath the light of the moon.

Love Unchained’s review of Dyeing to be Loved by Aimee Nicole Walker

Dyeing to be Loved (Curl Up and Dye Mysteries, #1)Dyeing to be Loved by Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow. Jazz was just….simply amazing and sweet and stubborn. And Gabe….so friggin sexy it dripped off the pages. How could anyone resist him? The only complaint I might have is the lack of a detailed explanation of Jazz’ past hurts. Yes we’re told he was hurt but it’s never really explained and he never explains it to Gabe which I found odd. But overall I adored this one and can’t wait for the next book.

Love Unchained’s review of Stronger with You by Sierra Riley

Stronger With YouStronger With You by Sierra Riley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. Eddie was one of those characters you can’t help but adore. He’s sweet, patient, kind yet also strong and capable. And Mike was, well, gruff but lovable. And the way Eddie so subtly helped Mike come out of his shell – that was so, so good. I liked their story, I just kind of felt like there wasn’t quite enough of it, like it needed more. But overall it was really good.
