Review: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper

Having previously only read serial novellas by this author, I was delighted when she announced a stand-alone novel-length project. This book contains all of the elements that I have come to love this author for, such as satisfying paranormal romance arcs featuring unique and fantastical characters. Draper is still one of the few “reverse harem”Continue reading “Review: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper”

Review: Handsome Death by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for the full price. I am kicking myself for not reading this sooner. I have never failed to adore anything written by this author, and this might be my favorite book of hers so far. From the first page, Bauer subverts pretty muchContinue reading “Review: Handsome Death by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: On the Subject of Griffons by Lindsey Byrd

Disclaimer: I am an acquaintance of the author; however, I purchased this ebook for the full price. The only pseudo-complaint I have about this novel is that it could have been a tiny bit shorter. However, shortening the text would have involved cutting much of the hero’s internal narrative, which is a delightful mixture ofContinue reading “Review: On the Subject of Griffons by Lindsey Byrd”

Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles

Read my review of the Will Darling Adventures #1, Slippery Creatures. Charles has such a fantastic gift for crafting worlds that I want to fall into, populated by characters I want to befriend. In fact, beyond the plot and romance of this particular novel, one of the elements I love best about it is theContinue reading “Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles”

Review: Emerald Blaze (Hidden Legacy #5) by Ilona Andrews

Read my review of Hidden Legacy Book 1, Burn For Me. Read my review of Hidden Legacy Book 2, White Hot. Read my review of Hidden Legacy Book 3, Wildfire. Read my review of Hidden Legacy Book 3.5 Diamond Fire. Read my review of Hidden Legacy Book 4, Sapphire Flames. At one point, while enjoyingContinue reading “Review: Emerald Blaze (Hidden Legacy #5) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: Fork in the Road by J. Coyne

Some novellas, especially in the romance genre, fall flat for me because I don’t get a complete sense of character development. In this case, however, Coyne uses carefully placed sentences to evoke a deep history between all three characters without ever “info-dumping” the nuts and bolts of their origin stories. Coyne also builds the comfortableContinue reading “Review: Fork in the Road by J. Coyne”

Review: The Zoo Job (Leverage #2) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for the full price. I’ve known for a while that one of my favorite authors had written a media tie-in novel for one of my absolute favorite television shows, and now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to read it. Fans ofContinue reading “Review: The Zoo Job (Leverage #2) by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Review: The Old Guard #1: Opening Fire by Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernandez

By the time I could read this graphic novel, which collects the first five issues of The Old Guard, I’d already seen the movie on Netflix twice. If you followed me on social media last August, you know I was pretty obsessed. So, it’s difficult for me to talk about the graphic novel in isolation,Continue reading “Review: The Old Guard #1: Opening Fire by Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernandez”

Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone

“The Seduction of Molly O’Flaherty” (Book 0.5) After meeting these characters in Simone’s Markham Hall series, I was intrigued enough to follow them to London for their romance saga. Like it says on the tin, this story is not necessary for the following books. However, it does an excellent job of introducing Molly and SilasContinue reading “Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Scientific Method Universe Series by Kris Ripper

Surrender the Past Sometimes the theme of a book is difficult to parse; not so with this installment of the extended Scientific Method Universe collection of stories. After meeting him as a bit character in the main series, I was excited to get to know Nick better in his own romance. Because it takes placeContinue reading “Review: Scientific Method Universe Series by Kris Ripper”
