Book Review: When All the World Sleeps by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock

This novel was long, but it never dragged or felt padded with unnecessary content. The authors crafted an intense story in which I was quickly invested in the characters, their situation, and their developing relationship. This narrative isn’t quite an “enemies to lovers” arc, but Bel must overcome significant ingrained beliefs about Daniel despite pressureContinue reading “Book Review: When All the World Sleeps by Lisa Henry & J.A.

Book Review: Out of the Ashes (The Games #5) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of the previous books in The Games series: Top Priority (#1) Their Boy (#2) Breathless (#3) Doll Parts (#4) Though my favorite of this series is one of the previous installments, it can simultaneously be true that this series keeps getting better and better with each new story. Every title stands alone and focuses on differentContinue reading “Book Review: Out of the Ashes (The Games #5) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Sherwood by Sierra Simone

At the time this blog post is published, this novella is available for free. Simone’s New Camelot series wrecked me as a reader in all the best ways, often leaving me in tears and leading to some virtual flailing at a fellow fan via text. The journey was worth every bit of the angst, andContinue reading “Book Review: Sherwood by Sierra Simone”

Book Review: Bound to Fall by Jaime Samms

The easiest takeaway from this book to start this review is that it is extremely long—but it’s one of those stories that supports its weight and deserves every scene. The most difficult takeaway is that this is truly a tale of redemption, like it says on the tin. Redemption is not the same as aContinue reading “Book Review: Bound to Fall by Jaime Samms”

Book Review: Doll Parts (The Game #4) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of the previous books in The Game series: Top Priority (#1) Their Boy (#2) Breathless (#3) This book is a very different type of story from the previous installments in this series, but it definitely follows the same theme Dee laid out from the very beginning. Love and kink can be completelyContinue reading “Book Review: Doll Parts (The Game #4) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Spring of the Wolf (Seasons of the Lukoi #2) by Iris Foxglove

Read my review of the first Seasons of the Lukoi novel, Winter of the Owl. Every time I think I can’t possibly enjoy the world of this epic fantasy romance series more, the author(s) uncover another stunning layer. In the first book of this series, we’re introduced to the culture of the Lukoi, who areContinue reading “Book Review: Spring of the Wolf (Seasons of the Lukoi #2) by Iris Foxglove”

Book Review: Winter of the Owl (Seasons of the Lukoi #1) by Iris Foxglove

I came to this series because I’d previously read the Starian Cycle books by the same author, though I did not review them for my blog. Foxglove has created a truly expansive world in that it is not necessary to read the previous books to appreciate anything about this story. The forced-proximity element of thisContinue reading “Book Review: Winter of the Owl (Seasons of the Lukoi #1) by Iris Foxglove”
