Review: The Boy on the Balcony by Quin

Note: This book is available as a free download by the author. Even though this book review will go live on my blog months after reading it, at a moment when the world is (hopefully) looking brighter, this book was a perfect read in an otherwise stressful month. I’ve come to realize in my deep-diveContinue reading “Review: The Boy on the Balcony by Quin”

Review: Blood Series by Brea Alepoú

More Than Blood (Book 1) This paranormal romance story includes a cast of intriguing characters and plenty of sexy bits. However, is it wrong to wish that the book had included more of the worldbuilding and plot than romance-related drama? As much as I enjoyed meeting Karter and the vampire den to whom he findsContinue reading “Review: Blood Series by Brea Alepoú”

Review: The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings (Black & Blue #1) by Lily Morton

If I accidentally moved into a haunted house, I’d probably fall for the cute, local ghost tour guide too. Especially if his psychic gifts can help me un-haunt my house. The blue hair is probably just a bonus. Apparently, I identified a lot with Levi as a character because most of all of his decisionsContinue reading “Review: The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings (Black & Blue #1) by Lily Morton”

Review: Sugar Daddies by Jade West

This book was another recommendation from a Facebook readers group. I prefer menage romances considered M/M/F rather than M/F/M, in which an equal relationship also exists between the two men rather than both focusing on the woman. In this case, two bisexual men in a gay relationship decide to invite a woman to become partContinue reading “Review: Sugar Daddies by Jade West”

Review: Werewolves of Chernobyl by K.A. Merikan & L.A. Witt

I enjoy both these authors and the recent miniseries about Chernobyl on HBO, so this book pinged my interest when I stumbled across it. While I lean toward vampires rather than werewolves in my paranormal romance tastes, the premise intrigued me immediately. The human character, Quinn, annoyed me at the beginning. He starts a bitContinue reading “Review: Werewolves of Chernobyl by K.A. Merikan & L.A. Witt”

Review: Permanent Ink (Art & Soul #1) by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn

I will admit to being tentative going into this book based on the back-cover description. An age gap between two consenting adults doesn’t bother me, but I didn’t want or need a lot of angst related to Poe being the son of Jericho’s best friend. Luckily, the perk to everyone being an adult is thatContinue reading “Review: Permanent Ink (Art & Soul #1) by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn”

Review: Say You’ll Be Nine by Lucy Lennox

Like most people in the United States who don’t have a crafty bone in their body, HGTV is basically crack to me. No surprise, then, that I would dive into a contemporary romance featuring a fake relationship and a renovations YouTube channel (also, my parents are doing work on their house and I’m tired ofContinue reading “Review: Say You’ll Be Nine by Lucy Lennox”

Review: Wrecked Series by Kelly Fox

Sanctuary (Book 1) I’m a former military brat and current military spouse. I spent over a decade as a medical editor in rehabilitation, which included a focus on prosthetics. I hesitated over reading Sanctuary because I know I can be picky about books with either of those themes, much less combined. I’m so glad IContinue reading “Review: Wrecked Series by Kelly Fox”

Review: Pendulum (Kingdom of Night #1) by Joel Abernathy

I made it a goal to read more M/M books written by male-presenting authors, and this trilogy looked like a great choice that featured lots of my favorite things in the paranormal romance genre. On the plus side, this book was well-written, and it was easy enough to get swept along in the plot. However,Continue reading “Review: Pendulum (Kingdom of Night #1) by Joel Abernathy”

Review: Reagan Through the Looking Glass (Hacking Wonderland #1) by Allyson Lindt

This is a short novel that ends in such a way that it could have easily been combined with the sequel to create a complete book. It does not end on a cliffhanger, though; I look forward to reading the conclusion, but I didn’t feel the urge to dive into it immediately. Reagan (“Alice”) immediatelyContinue reading “Review: Reagan Through the Looking Glass (Hacking Wonderland #1) by Allyson Lindt”
