REVIEW: Oh this one was very, very fun! I specifically picked it up because of K.A. Linde giving us more Camden and Katherine from my favorite series of hers. I read the wedding night short story about these two, and then immediately re-read Cruel Marriage so I could see my favorite couple’s angsty story again!! I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you want a little holiday taste of some awesome authors! Whether you’re revisiting some favorites, or discovering new authors and their characters, you can’t go wrong with this one. Plus, your purchase supports an awesome charity (better believe I bought a paperback)!

The Architect by Nikki Sloan

5 STARS

Release Date: February 23, 2021

SYNOPSIS: On the surface, my new boyfriend is a stiff, buttoned-up architect. He plans every detail of his life while carefully maintaining the walls he’s built around his heart. But when the biggest project of his career pulls him away, Clay’s solution is both temporary and unconventional. It even comes with a name—Travis. This handsome stranger is sweet and thoughtful. He’s only meant to be a stand-in, to fulfill my needs under Clay’s watchful direction, yet these two men couldn’t be more different. The one thing they share? Well, I guess that would be me. One gets off on my pain, the other on my pleasure, and it awakens a desire none of us knew existed. But it can’t last.

Eventually I’ll have to choose.
And it’s going to destroy us all.


This is Book 3 in the Nashville Neighborhood Series (Age-Gap Romances)


REVIEW: *Fans self* Yes, I’m gonna need a tall glass of water after this deliciously steamy read. I mean the story has so much sex from right off the bat that you better have your poker face ready if reading this one in public. Nikki Sloane always writes really hot scenes between the characters but this one was on a-whole-nother level compared to the other Nashville Neighborhood books. Similar to the other books, the relationship was definitely a little taboo compared to what we typically see out in society. The great thing is that Nikki Sloan is wonderful at showing how much the characters care about each other and what the relationships really are about. I loved seeing the growth of the relationships, as well as how the characters not going to be put in a box or labeled. They go after what they want and what makes them happy. Whenever I think about books like this, I think about how people might be scandalized by the taboo part. And it’s funny, because when I read books like this I might think in passing “that probably wouldn’t work for me” but what I’m really focused on is the relationship itself. And when you actually look at the support the characters give each other their relationship is better than a lot of the stereotypical heteronormative relationships that you see going on in our society. That’s what makes this romance a great romance–the characters have genuine love for each other and what else do you want in a romance book? This was by far my favorite of the series!

The Pool Boy by Nikki Sloan

4 STARS

Release Date: August 11, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Nothing says happy birthday like catching your husband in a compromising position with his boss. His male boss. Why, hello, midlife crisis. I’m starting over, but this time I’m doing it right. Or at least I’m doing what I want. Taking the day off from work to hang out poolside? Yup. Do I leave the swimsuit in my house? Sure. Does my very hot, twenty-something pool boy happen to catch me naked? Oh, yeah, he does. And he likes what he sees… a lot. My best friend keeps telling me to have a fling and get back out there. But I’m not so sure she meant for me to do it with her son.


This is Book 2 in the Nashville Neighborhood Series (Age-Gap Romances)


REVIEW: Okay, so I’m not always a fan of age gap romances with really big gaps, so at the beginning this book I was a little uncomfortable. What pulls me into Nikki Sloan‘s books is her writing and how she gives depth to her characters. The more I got to know both Troy and Erika, the more I wanted it to work out for them despite all the odds against them. I really liked seeing Cassidy and Dr. Lowe from The Doctor, which is book one in the series! Erica seeking advice from Dr. Lowe warmed my heart. I really wanted to see Erica find some happiness after being in a marriage that was clearly not right for either of them. Something that I really admire in a character in general, is when they’re just all in about their love interest, and that’s definitely Troy from the very beginning. I just really appreciate him as a male character, which combated all of the other elements that made me a little uncomfortable and all the obstacles they had to face. I think it’s good for me as a person to be a little uncomfortable sometimes, because at the end of the day this is Troy and Erica’s story, not mine. They’re both adults, and if this relationship works for them and they’re happy, I’m definitely in their corner!

I am really looking forward to book 3 in this series, The Architect!
