Book Review: Sunshine (Trident Agency #1) by E.M. Lindsey & Kiki Clark

I’m a huge fan of open-world urban fantasy, so I knew ahead of time that I’d enjoy this new series cowritten by one of my favorite authors. Lindsey and Clark play with multiple romance tropes in this book while also stretching other limits with a setting completely different from our own world, while keeping everything … Continue reading Book Review: Sunshine (Trident Agency #1) by E.M. Lindsey & Kiki Clark

Book Review: Sub Rosa (Valerius Mystery #1) by Jennifer Burke

In my experience, the best historical fiction involves stories that show the more things change, the more they stay the same. After all, people are people throughout history, just occasionally with better hygiene. Valerius is the highlight of this extended cast of characters for a story in which Burke effortlessly blends modern voice with a … Continue reading Book Review: Sub Rosa (Valerius Mystery #1) by Jennifer Burke

Book Review: Drama Queen (The Court #1) by Charlie Novak

Comparing the drag queen main character in this story, Bubblegum Galaxy, to the drag queen protagonist of an earlier Novak book would be easy, but this author immediately puts her excellent characterization skills to work by making their personalities and general vibes drastically different (in both drag and boy mode). At the same time, I … Continue reading Book Review: Drama Queen (The Court #1) by Charlie Novak

Book Review: Hide With Me (The Game #13) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of previous books in The Game series: Top Priority (#1) | Their Boy (#2) | Breathless (#3) | Doll Parts (#4) | Out of the Ashes (#5) | The Shepherd (#6) | Adrift in the Embers (#7) | Hostile Takeover (#8) | Senseless (#9) | The Secret Plan (#10) | Apex Predator (#11) | Prowl (#12) Do you own a waffle maker? You should … Continue reading Book Review: Hide With Me (The Game #13) by Cara Dee

Book Review: Praised (Trophy Doms Social Club #3) by Kate Hawthorne

Read my reviews of previous books in the Trophy Doms Social Club series: Humbled (#1) | Edged (#2) Flynn may fit all the characteristics for being a card-carrying member of the Trophy Doms Social Club, but one thing I love about this series is how each member of this group of friends is still entirely unique. And … Continue reading Book Review: Praised (Trophy Doms Social Club #3) by Kate Hawthorne

Book Review: Unholy Trinity (Rebel Kings MC #6) by Garrett Leigh

Read my reviews of previous books in the Rebel Kings MC series: Devil’s Dance (#1) | Saint’s Song (#2) | Forgive Me Father (#3) | Love Thy Brother (#4) | Reluctant Renegade (#5) When the VP of the Rebel Kings MC started more actively pursuing a potential relationship with the sister of the President earlier in this series, I figured … Continue reading Book Review: Unholy Trinity (Rebel Kings MC #6) by Garrett Leigh

Book Review: DragonSeer (DragonKin #2) by S. Rodman

Read my review of the first book in the DragonKin series, DragonRider. As the middle installment of a trilogy, this book doesn’t necessarily need an inciting incident – the events of the first book set up the entire initial situation in which our heroes find themselves. With brand-new dragon eggs and in a self-imposed exile … Continue reading Book Review: DragonSeer (DragonKin #2) by S. Rodman

Book Review: The Thief (Lost Boys #0.5) by Kelly Fox

To borrow a phrase from this novella, you won’t want to miss this “quick but meaningful” introduction to Fox’s next series. Most novellas that act as this sort of prelude leave me both overwhelmed by introductions to secondary characters and underwhelmed by the story itself. Proving once again why Fox is one of my favorite … Continue reading Book Review: The Thief (Lost Boys #0.5) by Kelly Fox

Book Review: An Oath and a Promise (Riehse Eshan #4) by Adelaide Blaike

Read my reviews of previous books in the Riehse Eshan series: A Knife and a Blade (#1) | A Whisper and a Breath (#2) | A Shadow and a Storm (#3) I first found this series in a bit of a sweet spot, soon after the third book was released. That meant I got to binge-read everything available … Continue reading Book Review: An Oath and a Promise (Riehse Eshan #4) by Adelaide Blaike

Book Review: Gateway Catastrophe (Ghostly Guardians #4) by Louisa Masters

Read my reviews of previous books in the Ghostly Guardians series: Spirited Situation (#1) | Vortex Conundrum (#2) | Conduit Crisis (#3) Since this book is the conclusion to the overarching storyline of the series, Masters has set pretty high expectations for readers regarding both the urban fantasy and romance elements. I know without a doubt that fans … Continue reading Book Review: Gateway Catastrophe (Ghostly Guardians #4) by Louisa Masters

Book Review: Recalling My Demon (Possessive Love) by Colette Davison

Read my review of another book in the Possessive Love collection, My Saintly Demon by R.M. Neill. The idea of an ex-priest explaining kink to a demon should be absurd. As an author, Davison is exactly the blend of spicy and sweet necessary to make it adorable instead. The story in this book is the … Continue reading Book Review: Recalling My Demon (Possessive Love) by Colette Davison

Book Review: A Dream of Flame and Shadow (Flame & Shadow #1) by L. Eveland

I was immediately intrigued by this dark fantasy, especially with the added realization as I got further into the story that the brief glimpse I had of the human realm felt so much darker than the land of nightmares. Once I encountered the twist that the lord of nightmares needs some sort of help from … Continue reading Book Review: A Dream of Flame and Shadow (Flame & Shadow #1) by L. Eveland

Book Review: My Saintly Demon (Possessive Love) by R.M. Neill

I’ll acknowledge up front that I’m not usually interested in a Christianity-based religious crisis of faith by a white dude, but I offered to read this ARC after getting to know the author in a group chat. To my surprise and pleasure, Neill immediately gives the reader an explicit and sympathetic reason to care about … Continue reading Book Review: My Saintly Demon (Possessive Love) by R.M. Neill

Book Review: Icarus and the Devil (Soul to Find #1) by Layla Reyne

The opening scene of this book is certainly memorable for being a unique way to open a story. It’s also extremely well done for how it introduces certain paranormal facets of this world without hitting the reader with too much information, then escalates quickly while continuing to drop deliciously subtle world-building details. I learned enough … Continue reading Book Review: Icarus and the Devil (Soul to Find #1) by Layla Reyne
