Review: American Queen (New Camelot #1) by Sierra Simone

I adore Arthurian literature, but not all of it. Lancelot has especially never been a particular favorite, for much the same reason Simone explains in this book: He’s a fanfic self-insert by the French so they could play with chivalry in a set of tales too old for such a relatively modern social construct. IContinue reading “Review: American Queen (New Camelot #1) by Sierra Simone”

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: Between Sirs (K Club #4) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. This book is not going to be for everyone. Read the description blurb and heed the content warnings. If you think it’s for you, then you’re in for a great ride. Nichole never fails to deliver on the sexiness andContinue reading “Review: Between Sirs (K Club #4) by Rachell Nichole”

Review: Slippery Creatures (Will Darling Adventures #1) by K.J. Charles

The bad news: This book does not end with a happily ever after. The good news: Because it’s book 1 of a trilogy! Will and Kim have fabulous and intense chemistry that only enhances the plot they’re embroiled in, and I look forward to seeing their relationship develop throughout the next two books. As always,Continue reading “Review: Slippery Creatures (Will Darling Adventures #1) by K.J. Charles”

Review: From Sir, With Love (K Club #3) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. In some romance novels, I enjoy the development of the relationship. In other romance novels, I enjoy the development of the characters, and the relationship is a bonus. For this book, I leaned toward the latter. The growth that EvangelineContinue reading “Review: From Sir, With Love (K Club #3) by Rachell Nichole”

Review: Hexhunter (Hexworld #4) by Jordan L. Hawk

Now that Hawk has thoroughly established the rules of the Hexworld series, it was time to start breaking them. The events of this book took elements of familiars and witches to new levels, in intriguing ways that made for a mystery that acted as the perfect backdrop for the burgeoning relationship between Isaac and Bill.Continue reading “Review: Hexhunter (Hexworld #4) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: “For Sir” (K Club #1) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. This story does an excellent job of introducing prospective readers to the world of The K Club and the types of romance this series provides. The back-cover blurb is a bit misleading in terms of the plot, but the storyContinue reading “Review: “For Sir” (K Club #1) by Rachell Nichole”

Review: Hexslayer (Hexworld #3) by Jordan L. Hawk

Every book in this series gets better on multiple levels. Hawk continues to pull threads on the over-arching plot, making it more intriguing and convoluted without losing any of the believability of such events in the world he has created. In tandem, each romance both supports and is affected by the greater events. I wasContinue reading “Review: Hexslayer (Hexworld #3) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Dragon Precinct by Keith R.A. DeCandido

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this book for full price. Once again, DeCandido has blown me away with his knowledge of genre tropes and how to bend them to his will to create a fantastic story. This time, he combines the magic of police procedurals with high fantasy (via table-topContinue reading “Review: Dragon Precinct by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Review: Eye Spy (Family Spies #2) by Mercedes Lackey

Overall, this was probably the best new Valdemar book I’ve read and enjoyed in years. That’s not to say that it has no flaws, but overall, Abi is a great, solid character with some truly excellent and original adventures. I’m not going to lie: Part of my enjoyment might be because this is the firstContinue reading “Review: Eye Spy (Family Spies #2) by Mercedes Lackey”
