Book Review: Sins That Bind Us (Madly Ever After #2) by E.M. Lindsey

Read my review of the first book in the Madly Ever After series, Sins That Find Us. Lindsey doesn’t leave us hanging off the cliff they left us in the previous book for long. However, while Kane’s kidnapping is established, his rescue isn’t quite so straightforward. The guys go through a lot to find him,Continue reading “Book Review: Sins That Bind Us (Madly Ever After #2) by E.M. Lindsey”

Book Review: Apex Predator (The Game #11) by Cara Dee

Book Review: Shadowfall (Immortals Descending #2) by Iris Foxglove

Read my review of the first book in the Immortals Descending series, Storm Front. Like the previous book in this series, this one starts with a fascinating origin story. This time, it’s not the origin story of a god, but of the inciting event to his evolution. Foxglove kicks us off with lots of questions,Continue reading “Book Review: Shadowfall (Immortals Descending #2) by Iris Foxglove”

Book Review: One for the Road by Kate Hawthorne

One of my favorite things about Hawthorne’s writing is the way she plays with tropes in a manner that takes the story beyond the obvious. This is very much a second-chance romance, as a family tragedy forces one character home for the first time since leaving his high school boyfriend behind. However, that’s where theContinue reading “Book Review: One for the Road by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: Sins That Find Us (Madly Ever After #1) by E.M. Lindsey

The first installment of this nontraditional fairy tale retelling has a lot of work to do. Multiple characters to introduce, both individually and their previously established dynamics, along with the politics of an underworld to set up. Lindsey pulls no punches by immediately showing how dark and kinky these guys are, already with each otherContinue reading “Book Review: Sins That Find Us (Madly Ever After #1) by E.M. Lindsey”

Book Review: Unwrapping Christmas (Rebel Sky Ranch #4.5) by Kelly Fox

Read my reviews of previous books in the Rebel Sky Ranch series: Goodnight (#1) | Sparrow (#2) | Navarro (#3) | Warwick (#4) There seems to be a default assumption that holiday-themed romances have to be sweet, but Fox sees this assumption, packs a ton of sweetness into this novella, and then raises the spice level off the chartsContinue reading “Book Review: Unwrapping Christmas (Rebel Sky Ranch #4.5) by Kelly Fox”

Book Review: Shah Mat (Shattered Pawns #4) by Jennifer Cody

Read my reviews of the previous books set in this series/world: Diviner’s Game series | Shattered Pawns series Some books are easy to review, no matter the genre. These things happened, the characters were like this, and this is how I felt about it. Some books, on the other hand, are the culmination of halfContinue reading “Book Review: Shah Mat (Shattered Pawns #4) by Jennifer Cody”

Book Review: The Secret Plan (The Game #10) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of the 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) One of the things I love best about this series is how it explores the intersectionContinue reading “Book Review: The Secret Plan (The Game #10) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Making the Rules (Triskelion #3) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Triskelion series: Breaking the Rules (#1) Making a Mark (#2) I’m so spoiled by authors that release books close together that waiting a year for the final installment of this trilogy was brutal—but absolutely worth the wait (and luckily, I had plenty of other books byContinue reading “Book Review: Making the Rules (Triskelion #3) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga”
