Book Review: Devil May Care (Reckless Damned #2) by Lark Taylor

Read my review of the first book in the Reckless Damned series, Devil’s Mark. The slight downside to knowing how some of the worldbuilding works in an established series is that it can be harder to draw certain elements out for the audience. It’s fairly obvious from the epilogue of the previous book in thisContinue reading “Book Review: Devil May Care (Reckless Damned #2) by Lark Taylor”

Book Review: The Trouble With Trying to Love a Hellion (Murder Sprees & Mute Decrees #3) by Jennifer Cody

Read my reviews of previous books in the Murder Sprees & Mute Decrees series: The Trouble With Trying to Date a Murderer (#1) | The Trouble With Trying to Save an Assassin (#2) The previous narrator of this series is so vibrant that Cody takes a risk with this departure, especially since Edovard is vastly different fromContinue reading “Book Review: The Trouble With Trying to Love a Hellion (Murder Sprees & Mute Decrees #3) by Jennifer Cody”

Book Review: Third Time Lucky by Aurora Crane

The world-building nerd in me loves when authors write multiple stories in the same universe, even if the characters and events can stand alone. This is my third visit to this low-key shared world, and I thoroughly enjoy the sprawling connections of friendship and family that link the characters. And though the previous books wereContinue reading “Book Review: Third Time Lucky by Aurora Crane”

Book Review: Sins That Bind Us (Madly Ever After #2) by E.M. Lindsey

Read my review of the first book in the Madly Ever After series, Sins That Find Us. Lindsey doesn’t leave us hanging off the cliff they left us in the previous book for long. However, while Kane’s kidnapping is established, his rescue isn’t quite so straightforward. The guys go through a lot to find him,Continue reading “Book Review: Sins That Bind Us (Madly Ever After #2) by E.M. Lindsey”

Book Review: Apex Predator (The Game #11) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of the previous books in The Game series: Top Priority (#1) | Their Boy (#2) | Breathless (#3) | Doll Parts (#4) | Out of the Ashes (#5) | The Shepherd (#6) | Adrift in the Embers (#7) | Hostile Takeover (#8) | Senseless (#9) | The Secret Plan (#10) Dee once told me that she was worried I’d eventually be disappointedContinue reading “Book Review: Apex Predator (The Game #11) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Shadowfall (Immortals Descending #2) by Iris Foxglove

Read my review of the first book in the Immortals Descending series, Storm Front. Like the previous book in this series, this one starts with a fascinating origin story. This time, it’s not the origin story of a god, but of the inciting event to his evolution. Foxglove kicks us off with lots of questions,Continue reading “Book Review: Shadowfall (Immortals Descending #2) by Iris Foxglove”

Book Review: One for the Road by Kate Hawthorne

One of my favorite things about Hawthorne’s writing is the way she plays with tropes in a manner that takes the story beyond the obvious. This is very much a second-chance romance, as a family tragedy forces one character home for the first time since leaving his high school boyfriend behind. However, that’s where theContinue reading “Book Review: One for the Road by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: Forgive Me Father (Rebel Kings MC #3) by Garrett Leigh

Read my reviews of previous books in the Rebel Kings MC series: Devil’s Dance (#1) | Saint’s Song (#2) Though Cam, Saint, and Alexei are the characters we followed in the first books of this series, every officer of the Rebel Kings MC played a role in events that drastically affected them all. In this book, whileContinue reading “Book Review: Forgive Me Father (Rebel Kings MC #3) by Garrett Leigh”

Book Review: Everything’s Changing by Chelsea Stickle

Stickle doesn’t pull any punches with the start of this chapbook, which starts the way I anticipated but then gets very weird. Despite the back cover description, I had expected more “realistic” stories, so this is an immediate departure from Stickle’s previous collection. But like the dedication says, weird is not a bad thing. EvenContinue reading “Book Review: Everything’s Changing by Chelsea Stickle”

Book Review: Uprooted (Florae #1) by Erica Montrose

I’m always on the lookout for new concepts in fiction, especially in the genres I already enjoy. Montrose packs a double dose of surprise to create a truly unique premise in this novella-length introduction to the world of her new paranormal romance series. Because this is a shorter book, the romance story line is slightlyContinue reading “Book Review: Uprooted (Florae #1) by Erica Montrose”
