Sinful Rewards And Being Small Town Infamous

I spent my teenage years in a small town (population: 4,500). When my family moved into the town, my big brother tried out for the hockey team, THE sports team in this town. He was their star defenseman. I became known as his little sister. It didn’t matter what I did or said or became. I was a figure skater, starring in a couple of town productions. I was a newspaper reporter, covering school activities for the local weekly paper and town activities for the regional daily paper. I won awards and earned a full four year scholarship to the university of my choice. To this day, I’m known as my brother’s little sister. I question sometimes that local residents know my name because this is how they always refer to me. I was lucky. I could live with my label. Some of my friends weren’t as fortunate. One of...

Book Review: A Little on the Wild Side by Robin Kaye

Robin Kaye definitely knows how to write a hot, sexy, and stunning novel. A Little on the Wild Side has it all. The man character was a supermodel but she is now a business woman who knows exactly what she wants. But then she meets a man who is sexy as hell and turns her on in all the right ways. Trapper knows exactly what Bianca needs. But she makes it hard for him to help her out. Will these two opposites spark a deep undeniable attraction? I loved reading this fun and intoxicating romantic book.  It was easy to connect with the characters and the plot was just up my alley. Robin Kaye knows how to intrigue her readers and keep them hooked from beginning to end. I  would recommend this novel to other readers out there. If you love a good romance and a happy ending filled scenes...
