Review: The Game Series by Cara Dee

Top Priority (Book 1) When I read the description, I immediately loved this book’s concept—talk about the endless possibility of conflict. Since it was short and I had some time to kill before an appointment, I figured it’d made a fun afternoon read. Instead, I fell head over heels in love with both Lucas andContinue reading “Review: The Game Series by Cara Dee”

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”

Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone

The Awakening of Ivy Leavold (Book 1) Here’s the old-school Gothic erotic romance I expected when I started Simone’s Thornchapel series! An innocent young woman finds herself helpless and adrift in a new home, at the mercy of a mysterious and figure who instantly captivates her attention. Despite Simone’s effortless narrative that elevates the interactionsContinue reading “Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Scientific Method Series by Kris Ripper

Catalysts (Book 1) The structure of this book is unusual but makes sense once you realize that it originally consisted of two books and that the first book originally consisted of a series of even shorter interludes. This narrative style might make the story disjointed for some readers, especially those who are looking for aContinue reading “Review: Scientific Method Series by Kris Ripper”

Review: Trinity Masters Series by Mari Carr & Lila Dubois

Primal Passion (Book 2) I abandoned the first book in this series at about 70%. The three-way arranged marriage via secret society concept intrigued me. Unfortunately, the book used it more as an excuse for three characters to launch immediately into sexual escapades without any personal connection. By the time the external plot showed up,Continue reading “Review: Trinity Masters Series by Mari Carr & Lila Dubois”

Review: Slices of Pi Series by Elia Winters

Even Odds (Book 1) As a gamer girl myself, I’ll always have a soft spot for those characters in romance novels. But it’s so hard to find stories that portray gamers of either gender realistically, much less those who work in the industry. Winters, on the other hand, described the world so well that readingContinue reading “Review: Slices of Pi Series by Elia Winters”

Review: Secrets of Charlotte Street Series by Scarlett Peckham

The Duke I Tempted (Book 1) The time period of this book was a bit earlier than the historical romance I’ve been reading, but I’m so pleased I took a chance on it anyway. Westmead and Poppy stole my heart, separately and then together. The arc of their relationship surprised me at every turn, butContinue reading “Review: Secrets of Charlotte Street Series by Scarlett Peckham”

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: 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: American King (New Camelot #3) by Sierra Simone

I honestly did not expect this book to affect me as much as it did. I tore through it in a single afternoon, enjoying the spring air on my front porch, and had to go inside for fresh tissues twice. At about the 90% mark, I texted a friend to rage about what I assumedContinue reading “Review: American King (New Camelot #3) by Sierra Simone”
