Book Review: Prepared (Auctioned #6) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Auctioned series. What I expected with this book: Total fan service of Gray and Darius’ happily ever after, featuring bachelor party shenanigans, a ceremony and reception I’d cry my way through, and familiar, beloved characters showing up from other series. Had that been all this bookContinue reading “Book Review: Prepared (Auctioned #6) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Breaking Points by Chelsea Stickle

I bought this debut chapbook to support my friend in some small fragment of the way she has supported my writing for years. It then took me an embarrassingly long time to read. Then, when I meant to treat myself to these bits of flash in between working on another project, I found myself devouringContinue reading “Book Review: Breaking Points by Chelsea Stickle”

Book Review: Sworn Enemy (Wild Heart Ranch #1) by Kelly Fox

This book is the first in a brand-new series, but it is also set in Fox’s sprawling and delightfully interconnected world and features plenty of familiar characters. In particular, the two heroes are featured in previous books – one as a solid sort of hero and another as a specific type of villain. Even beforeContinue reading “Book Review: Sworn Enemy (Wild Heart Ranch #1) by Kelly Fox”

Book Review: Breakaway (Sin Bin: West Coast #1) by E.M. Lindsey

I enjoyed the two original entries in Lindsey’s cowritten foray into hockey romance, and while I have no idea when or whether that series will continue, I already knew I’d also be invested in the Western Conference version written by Lindsey alone. This book includes all of what I enjoyed about that series but withContinue reading “Book Review: Breakaway (Sin Bin: West Coast #1) by E.M. Lindsey”

Book Review: Paper Girls Volumes 1-2

Paper Girls Vol. 1 Brian K. Vaughan (writer); Cliff Chiang (artist); Matt Wilson (colors); Jared K. Fletcher (letters) I’ve had the first two volumes of this series sitting on my shelf for ages, and I promise it is a sheer coincidence that I finally decided to read them now that the first episodes of theContinue reading “Book Review: Paper Girls Volumes 1-2”

Book Review: A Date to Impress Him (Magi Accounts #2.5) by Michele Notaro

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Magi Accounts series: Our Hearts That Tie Us (Magi Accounts #0.5) The Scars That Bind Us (Magi Accounts #1) A Kiss to Revive Me (Magi Accounts #1.5) The Shackles That Hold Us (Magi Accounts #2) Notaro has developed a wonderful storytelling pattern with this series by including “slice of life”Continue reading “Book Review: A Date to Impress Him (Magi Accounts #2.5) by Michele Notaro”

Book Review: Husband Material (London Calling #2) by Alexis Hall

Read my review of the first book in the London Calling series, Boyfriend Material The structural premise of this book, four weddings and a funeral, is spelled out in the blurb. Between that setup, genre expectations over how a second story about an established relationship will play out, and the title itself, we go inContinue reading “Book Review: Husband Material (London Calling #2) by Alexis Hall”

Book Review: Sin Deep by Jody Payne & B.A. Tortuga

I’m a total sucker for the Payne/Tortuga “East meets West with a side of kink” books, and I knew I’d be reading this one even before I found out it was set in the same world as their The Cowboy and The Dom series. One of the things that most impresses me about this authorContinue reading “Book Review: Sin Deep by Jody Payne & B.A. Tortuga”

Book Review: Ashes of Regret by Searby Gray

Quick caveat for this review: I read this book after another set in this same world that will be released a month after this review goes live. This means I have some pretty significant backstory about this world and some of these characters that fresh readers will not. As always, I do my best toContinue reading “Book Review: Ashes of Regret by Searby Gray”

Book Review: Meet Me There by K.M. Neuhold

Since I follow this author on social media, I have the pleasure of knowing that the plot of this book sprung from a chance encounter she had with a model while on vacation in New Orleans. The finished product is a lovely, slow-burn romance that I have no problem imagining could be real. The wayContinue reading “Book Review: Meet Me There by K.M. Neuhold”
