Exchange of Fire (An SBG Novel) by P. A. DePaul
4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Romantic Suspense, Aug. 21 2014
Exchange of Fire was more than I expected it to be. I thought it would be a sort of shoot 'em up, spy-action, go go go kind of romance, with some hot sex scenes on the run. Instead, it's got a slower pace, but a more meaningful relationship conflict and I really enjoyed that.

Love Bites: A Sugar City Novella (Entangled Bliss) by Ophelia London

Love Bites takes the "one night standees discover they've got to work together" trope (there must be a more elegant way to say that) and twists it about. Instead of actually going for it, Sharona gets cold feet and that amps up the tension the next day when she and Jeff have to face each other in the harsh light of day with all that sexual tension still built up between them.

I'm not much of a boat person, though I've been loving books set on boats lately. I appreciated the details provided in terms of the shark research being done… Read more
