Book Review: Summer of the Wanderer (Seasons of the Lukoi #3) by Iris Foxglove

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Seasons of the Lukoi series: Winter of the Owl (#1) Spring of the Wolf (#2) I know that I say this in each review, but this series keeps getting better with every installment. In this book, we leave Lukos and venture to yet another new countryContinue reading “Book Review: Summer of the Wanderer (Seasons of the Lukoi #3) by Iris Foxglove”

Book Review: A Matter of Fact (Two Truths and a Lie #3) by Kate Hawthorne

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Two Truths and a Lie series: A Real Good Lie (#1) A Cold Hard Truth (#2) Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this novel from the author. Though I enjoy both plot- and character-driven fiction, one of my favorite elements of storytelling, no matter the genre, isContinue reading “Book Review: A Matter of Fact (Two Truths and a Lie #3) by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: Mountain Topped by K.M. Neuhold & Mia Monroe

Sometimes there’s a limit to how many genre tropes you can cram into one book. However, there’s a difference between “too many” and “just enough combined in the right way.” Neuhold and Monroe strike the perfect balance in this book with three unique and compelling characters who also balance each other in the best way.Continue reading “Book Review: Mountain Topped by K.M. Neuhold & Mia Monroe”

Book Review: Pretty Obsessed (Pretty Broken #1) by J.R. Gray

Rock star romances can be a mixed bag for me, but Gray had me at “cinnamon roll writer” and Emory and River’s incredibly unique meet-cute. As their interactions progressed, Gray also provided me with one of my favorite tropes ever (idiots in love) as Emory and River both try to hide their (sometimes low-, sometimesContinue reading “Book Review: Pretty Obsessed (Pretty Broken #1) by J.R.

Review: What We May Be by Layla Reyne

I love a good poly romance, and I love a good mystery, so when this one came highly recommended by fellow readers, I knew I had to give it a shot. Reyne immediately upended my expectations of this story by weaving a second-chance element into the dynamic between her three extraordinary heroes rather than throwingContinue reading “Review: What We May Be by Layla Reyne”

Review: Mixed Messages Series by Lily Morton

Rule Breaker (Book 1) As much as I enjoy reading romances that involve power dynamics, I have trouble crossing certain lines. An employer/employee relationship is one of them because the power balance there is not imbalanced through the desires of the participants but instead due to outside forces. However, this established history between Dylan andContinue reading “Review: Mixed Messages Series by Lily Morton”

Review: Extracurricular Activities Series by Neve Wilder

Want Me (Book 1) Going into this book, I knew that it was initially published as a series of novellas for the author’s newsletter. With that premise, I expected a fairly light, if incredibly sexy, read about two characters who hook up until they end up in a real relationship. Taken as a whole, itContinue reading “Review: Extracurricular Activities Series by Neve Wilder”

Review: Breaking the Rules Series by E.M. Lindsey

Renegades (Book 1) After finishing the Irons & Works series, I immediately dove into this spin-off set of tales that feature Ted House, the home set up by two of the tattoo artists for LGBTQ kids in need. Even better, cameos appear by many of the familiar characters from the previous series, even though theContinue reading “Review: Breaking the Rules Series by E.M. Lindsey”
