Book Review: Weave the Dark, Weave the Light by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I am friends with this author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. A novella is a tricky length for a story, especially one that includes fantasy worldbuilding. However, Zabo does an amazing job with this sweet yet steamy romance between two unexpected characters. Jonathan is both something like a dream come trueContinue reading “Book Review: Weave the Dark, Weave the Light by Anna Zabo”

Book Review: The Masked Boys by Julia McBryant

I began this book expecting nothing more than some ridiculous kinky fun between bored rich boys at a boarding school. I was half right. The motivation behind the Plan is a bit silly, and the boys are certainly bored and rich, but the boarding school is not what I expected. These are (adult) teenagers whoContinue reading “Book Review: The Masked Boys by Julia McBryant”

Book Review: Playing the Palace by Paul Rudnick

I find it hilarious that “gay English prince” is a legitimate subgenre of queer romance. Still, I worried that I’d find it repetitive after previously enjoying Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston and The Spare by Miranda Dubner. Overall, this book is much more of a romantic comedy like the former, but itContinue reading “Book Review: Playing the Palace by Paul Rudnick”

Book Review: Without a Doubt (Love Starts Here #1) by E.M. Lindsey

This series is described as “light-hearted” in the cover description, and I suppose this book is when compared to other works by Lindsey. Carter is a cinnamon roll, and Rhys has the hard edges for them to mesh perfectly. However, both men carry a certain amount of emotional damage that doesn’t make a relationship easy,Continue reading “Book Review: Without a Doubt (Love Starts Here #1) by E.M. Lindsey”

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. Gray”

Book Review: Candy (Wrecked novella) by Kelly Fox

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this novella from the author. ‘Tis the season for holiday treats, and Fox provides an amazing present to her readers in the form of a return to our favorite gym for combat vets. Caleb is not a combat vet in the traditional sense, but he has just finishedContinue reading “Book Review: Candy (Wrecked novella) by Kelly Fox”

Book Review: Last First Kiss by E.M. Denning

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this book from the author. This book is one of those stories that is exactly what it says on the tin, and absolutely nothing about that is bad. Denning is deft enough at characterization that Logan and Ezra are more than walking stereotypes of young twink and jaded,Continue reading “Book Review: Last First Kiss by E.M. Denning”

Book Review: Enemies Series by Cara Dee

This post includes reviews of the books in the Enemies series: A New Enemy (#1) I’m Not Your Enemy (#2) A New Enemy (Book 1) I’m sure other readers might complain about how Dee sometimes breaks her stories into shorter books. While I might be tempted to add to those complaints because I want nothingContinue reading “Book Review: Enemies Series by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Cryptic (Puzzles #1) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga

I’ve loved everything I’ve read by this pair of authors, so I knew I had to check out their newest foray into the romantic thriller genre. Though none of the characters is a Texan former rodeo cowboy, their combined voice shines through the intriguing combination of Derek, NYC detective, and Matthew, a profiler from NewContinue reading “Book Review: Cryptic (Puzzles #1) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga”
