Book two in Katee Robert’s Kings Series, The Fearless King is set in Houston Texas and centers around the eldest King daughter, Journey, and the family’s oil company. As one of the oldest King siblings, Journey clearly remembers the abuse suffered at the hand of her estranged father, so when he arrives at the company she runs in tandem with her brother Anderson she knows it can’t be good. Her father’s plan to have her psychologically assessed by a psychologist on his payroll and deemed unfit to be COO is even worse than she thought. The years of abuse her father inflicted on her have taken their toll, and Journey often feels a hair’s breadth away from dissolving into a useless heap of fear and nerves.

Review: The Devil’s Daughter by Katee Robert

Reviewed by Sara

I’m a big fan of Katee Robert and her sexy romances, but I wasn’t so sure about The Devil’s Daughter when I saw its release. Published in 2017, it’s the first book of tmhe Hidden Sins series of novels and while it’s listed as a romance, it’s more of a romantic suspense or romantic ystery. While there is a romance between between Sheriff Zach Owens and FBI agent Eden Collins, it’s not the main element of the story. Needless to say, I am super happy that I gave this book a try.

After a career in the Marines, Zach Owens is happy with his life in quiet, small town Clear Springs, Montana, even if he does have a cult residing inside his jurisdiction. This all changes when girls start disappearing and then showing up dead. To make matters worse, the estranged daughter of the Elysia cult’s leader shows up to let him know there’s a leak on his force and that she has inside information on his case. Eden Collins doesn’t want to be back in Clear Springs, and she wants to be near her mother and the Elysia cult even less, but she’s dedicated her life to shutting down violent cults with the FBI, and the information she received from an unnamed source leads her to believe that something horrible is happening in Clear Springs.

Reviewed by Sara

I have been waiting forever for the sixth and final book in Katee Robert’s O’Malley series, The Bastard’s Bargain. While I really enjoy this series, I’ve been waiting since book two for the goods on Russian crime lord Dimitri Romanov and Katee Robert did not disappoint.

Now, with outside forces plotting against him, can he help Keira to see that she’s more than a pawn, more than his wife, she’s his queen. [Read more…]

Review: A Fool For You by Katee Robert

fool-for-youReviewed by Joanna

foolproof loveReviewed by Joanna

This is a cute, small town pretend-relationship love story involving a crazy cat lady and a bull riding rodeo cowboy. Yup, that’s what’s happening here.

One night at a bonfire, she hears that her ex, Grant, is back to take a position at his father’s law firm. He’s a total douche, and when he left for college, he dumped our Jules and told her she was too boring to stay around for. What a piece of work. [Read more…]

After it spent a while in my TBR stack, I finally decided to read this short story. This is my first read from this autho,r but what convinced me to try it was the military aspect; I’m not tired of that yet.

Carrie’s DNF Reviews – Fall 2015


Unfortunately, not every book works out for a reader.  I really hate to DNF a book but given the sheer amount of books out there, I don’t think it’s fair to continue to struggle through a book that is clearly not working for me. Having said that, what doesn’t work for me, might for you so don’t be afraid to try one of these books!

Review: The Marriage Contract by Katee Robert

marriage contractReviewed by Carrie

Maybe it’s all the movies I watched when I was young, but I cannot resist a mafia story.  Especially a modern-day mafia story with the princess set to take over the family business.  I think this will appeal to a wider audience because the violence mostly happens off page and is not detailed.  Mainly it’s a story about two people finding a sliver of good within the confines of their lives.

This is the 3rd book in the Wedding Dare category romance series put out by Brazen.  Even though I’m not a fan of shorter books, I’ve been enjoying reading this series as a nice relaxing escape.  This one, however, didn’t work for me as much.

Regan Wakefield is a take charge ballbuster.  When she sees something she wants, she makes a plan and goes full blast for it.  Regan is all prepared to go after the equally successful and driven best man, Logan. She is irritated when another groomsman keeps getting in her way. [Read more…]
