#BookReview A Bicycle Made for Two by Mary Jayne Baker

Oh, Mary Jayne Baker. It's like you wrote this book just for me! It's 100% British and took me back to my youth when my Dad used every British slang word and saying he could all day, everyday.

#BookReview Stolen by Kelley Armstrong

  Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors, and not just because she's Canadian! Her Women of the Otherworld series has always and will always knock my socks off!

#BookReview Thrown Off Track by Tamsen Parker

  "It sounds serial-killer creepy" = the best quote of this entire book (and it's pretty darn quote worth). Here's the thing - I don't normally like M/M romance. Not because I don't enjoy M/M romance stories, but because every book I've ever read that involved M/M centered around stereotypical men and always made M/M… Continue reading #BookReview Thrown Off Track by Tamsen Parker
