Review: No Surrender (No Regrets #1) by Nora Phoenix

This book is the first spinoff to the No Shame series by the same author. I’m pretty sure it can be read as a stand-alone, but I both highly recommend it and think that readers who enjoy this book will likely also enjoy going back to read those books as well. Go ahead. I’ll wait.Continue reading “Review: No Surrender (No Regrets #1) by Nora Phoenix”

Review: Lust & Longing by E.M. Denning

It takes strong characterization to create two characters in a single scene and have me believe they’re meant to be together forever—and then split them up for 20 years. It takes even stronger characterization for me to stick with the point-of-view character over those 20 years when he’s kind of a jerk for many ofContinue reading “Review: Lust & Longing by E.M.

Review: Truth by His Hand by Casey Cameron

A friend recently complained to me that she has a hard time finding kinky fiction that dives into the point of view of the submissive character rather than the dominant partner. I didn’t set out to find a book that proves her wrong, but I’m so pleased that I stumbled across this delicious stand-alone title.Continue reading “Review: Truth by His Hand by Casey Cameron”

Review: Ever After Series by Tanya Chris

Aftercare (Book 1) I can’t remember the last time I was so engrossed by a legal thriller. As a bonus, Chris also sucked me into the burgeoning romance between Garrett and Aayan. Usually, in these kinkier romances, it’s the Dom introducing a potential sub to the lifestyle. Here, it’s the other way around. Garrett mightContinue reading “Review: Ever After Series by Tanya Chris”

Review: The Boy Series by J.A. Rock & Lisa Henry

The Good Boy (Book 1) From the back cover description, I expected this to be a short book with a meet-cute, some kinky fun, and maybe a bit of a low-angst dark moment before the happily ever after. Instead, I got a solid romance arc, fascinating and three-dimensional main and side characters, an unspooling storylineContinue reading “Review: The Boy Series by J.A. Rock & Lisa Henry”

Review: Lonely Hearts Series by Kate Hawthorne

This post includes reviews of the currently available books in the Lonely Hearts series: His Kind of Love (#1) The Colors Between Us (#2) Love Comes After (#3) Until You Say Otherwise (#4) His Kind of Love (Book 1) This dark romance is deceptive, in that even as I was low-key horrified at the depthsContinue reading “Review: Lonely Hearts Series by Kate Hawthorne”

Review: We Have Till Monday by Cara Dee

Read my review of We Have Till Dawn, an earlier-published work that features Anthony’s younger brother. As much fun as I have tracking romance plot points now that I’m familiar with the structure, it never ceases to amaze me how diverse the genre can be. I’ve read both MMM and Daddy-kink (with age regression) storiesContinue reading “Review: We Have Till Monday by Cara Dee”

Review: Dual Destruction (Duality #1) by Kate Hawthorne

This book verges on dark romance territory only because of the love-hate dynamic between the two heroes, including the levels and limits (or lack thereof) to their sexual relationship. I highly recommend reading the free prequel available on the author’s website, “Dual Hostilities,” to see whether these characters may be up your alley. It isContinue reading “Review: Dual Destruction (Duality #1) by Kate Hawthorne”

Review: Date in a Pinch (Naughty in Pendleton #1) by Brigham Vaughn

Are the odds of such a meet-cute as this happening in real life slim to none? Of course. Luckily, this is a romance, so when Neil accidentally “outs” himself as interested in kink, Alexander is more intrigued than horrified. As teachers, they have to be relatively careful about who finds out about their interest inContinue reading “Review: Date in a Pinch (Naughty in Pendleton #1) by Brigham Vaughn”
