Review: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper

Having previously only read serial novellas by this author, I was delighted when she announced a stand-alone novel-length project. This book contains all of the elements that I have come to love this author for, such as satisfying paranormal romance arcs featuring unique and fantastical characters. Draper is still one of the few “reverse harem”Continue reading “Review: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper”

Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles

Read my review of the Will Darling Adventures #1, Slippery Creatures. Charles has such a fantastic gift for crafting worlds that I want to fall into, populated by characters I want to befriend. In fact, beyond the plot and romance of this particular novel, one of the elements I love best about it is theContinue reading “Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles”

Review: It’s Complicated Series by Brill Harper

All Together (Book 1) When I snagged this book, I figured I was taking a risk because the combination of college students and romance usually means plenty of angst and immaturity. But when I started reading, I was immediately sucked into the story through the sheer force of personality of the three characters, even beforeContinue reading “Review: It’s Complicated Series by Brill Harper”

Review: Arranging Paradise Series by L. Rowyn

A Rational Arrangement (Book 1) There’s a diamond in this book, but it’s smothered by the occasional downside to self-publishing. On the surface, the author did everything right. Great cover, no blatant typos, solid plot, well-developed characters, unique world building elements. Unfortunately, this is where I plug the need for an impartial substantive or developmentalContinue reading “Review: Arranging Paradise Series by L. Rowyn”

Review: A Lesson in Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone

I bought this ebook months ago, and for the life of me, I couldn’t remember why. The cover description was intriguing, but not my typical fare. It seemed a bit too throw-back Gothic for me. So, I glanced at a few online reviews, and one of them complained about bisexual characters. Who cares why IContinue reading “Review: A Lesson in Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Gilded Cage (Lilywhite Boys #2) by K.J. Charles

I re-read the first Lilywhite Boys book right before starting this one, because I could and because it’s that good. This book concludes the short series admirably, though I highly recommend also making sure to read “The Ratcatcher’s Daughter” to get a better feel for the overall conflict. The first book is from a singleContinue reading “Review: Gilded Cage (Lilywhite Boys #2) by K.J. Charles”

Review: A Little Light Mischief (Turner Series #3.5) by Cat Sebastian

This story can be read without the others in the Turner Series, though I highly recommend them. It also shows how women have both more and less freedom to choose their paths in life during this time period. Molly and Alice are both trapped by financial circumstances, but their ability to share a room isContinue reading “Review: A Little Light Mischief (Turner Series #3.5) by Cat Sebastian”

Review: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

I started reading romance novels in 2016, in large part due to the emotional chaos wrought by the American presidential election. Luckily, judging by McQuiston’s author note at the end of this novel, she saw a need in the general readership and persevered in filling it. This book is exactly what I needed as theContinue reading “Review: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston”

Review: Unfit to Print by K.J. Charles

JLG: October was really stressful for me, in terms of politics and worldwide events. So, comfort reading became a bit of a priority. For the next two months or so, please enjoy this ride through my adventures with the excellent writing of author K.J. Charles. This novella was a delightful read, perfect for a quietContinue reading “Review: Unfit to Print by K.J. Charles”

Review: “CTRL Me” by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased this ebook short story for full price. While I continue my trend of reading everything Anna Zabo writes, I appreciate that they’ve taught me a lot about my romance genre preferences. I enjoyed this particular short tremendously, but I think I prefer my romance inContinue reading “Review: “CTRL Me” by Anna Zabo”
