Fantastic reviews of romance novels
Heidi gives an excellent overview of each book. She lets you know when she will be giving a spoiler. I especially like the sexiness rating. I am a reader that is not interested in reading sexy books so love when a book gets a PG rating and I know in advance when a book has an R rating.
