Review: Comes in Threes Series by Elia Winters

Read my review of book 1, Three-Way Split. Just Past Two (Book 2) Even though I enjoyed the story, relationship, and writing in the previous book in this shared-world series, I didn’t rush right into book two. Based on the premise, I figured the “dark moment” would be fraught with a married couple experiencing jealousyContinue reading “Review: Comes in Threes Series by Elia Winters”

Review: The Threefold Tie by Aster Glenn Gray

This short novel is perfect for anyone looking for a historical romance with lovely character development and interaction. I thoroughly enjoyed each of these characters, individually and together. The point-of-view switches and overlapping timelines show the perspective of each lead and their developing arcs to excellent effect. This book is a quick read that doesn’tContinue reading “Review: The Threefold Tie by Aster Glenn Gray”

Review: Behind These Doors (Radical Proposals #1) by Jude Lucens

Though it focuses on a single relationship between two characters, this book made me fall in love with multiple characters across multiple relationships, all of whom had their own detailed lives and agency. Lucens balances an intricate drama of love, friendship, polyamory, and heartbreak in one of the best historical romances I’ve read to date.Continue reading “Review: Behind These Doors (Radical Proposals #1) by Jude Lucens”

Review: Arranging Paradise Series by L. Rowyn

A Rational Arrangement (Book 1) There’s a diamond in this book, but it’s smothered by the occasional downside to self-publishing. On the surface, the author did everything right. Great cover, no blatant typos, solid plot, well-developed characters, unique world building elements. Unfortunately, this is where I plug the need for an impartial substantive or developmentalContinue reading “Review: Arranging Paradise Series by L. Rowyn”

Review: Spirits Trilogy by Jordan L. Hawk

Restless Spirits (Book 1) I’m diving into another series by Hawk, and I couldn’t be happier. He’s proven time and time again to be a storyteller I know I will enjoy, so I was excited to start fresh with a new batch of characters in another historical paranormal romance setting. I enjoyed the early interactionsContinue reading “Review: Spirits Trilogy by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Thalanian Dynasty Series by Katee Robert

Theirs For the Night (Book 1) This short novella is intended to introduce the reader to the characters of the Thalanian Dynasty, a freebie so that readers are hooked enough to buy the full-length follow-up novel. (Full disclosure: It worked on me.) The events within are sexy and steamy, and I enjoyed Meg as aContinue reading “Review: Thalanian Dynasty Series by Katee Robert”

Review: “American Squire” (New Camelot #5) by Sierra Simone

This short story ties together the worlds of New Camelot and Thornchapel by following a former White House assistant on a mysterious errand to England. The actual interactions portrayed between Ryan and Sidney are both sexy and sweet, as appropriate, and I’d happily read more about their burgeoning relationship. What elevates this story from sexyContinue reading “Review: “American Squire” (New Camelot #5) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk

“A Christmas Hex” (Book 2.5) This is one of those stories that could have worked any time of year — but the fact that it occurred around Christmas made it all the sweeter. After reading the full-length novels in this series, it was easy to forget that witches and familiars in New York City didContinue reading “Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone

This short and sexy follow-up to the New Camelot trilogy does much to explain Merlin’s role in the whole situation. It portrays two very different relationships across time in a way that also shows off how Simone uses point-of-view to amplify her storytelling. I do have some questions about the off-screen events that bring MerlinContinue reading “Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Not Quite Hunter (Not Quite #3) by Kaye Draper

Plenty of things happened in this installment to the Not Quite series, but in the end, nothing changed. I didn’t see much character development, and though Sam had a sexy interlude with a new character, nothing about the conclusion hinted that there might be more to the relationship. I got the feeling that Draper doesn’tContinue reading “Review: Not Quite Hunter (Not Quite #3) by Kaye Draper”
