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”

Review: Four Ever by Sloane Kennedy

Why stop with all the drama and baggage of two characters at a tipping point in their relationship with each other when you can have double the fun? Include some healthy doses of physical, mental, or emotional trauma in every character, then sit back and wait for the fireworks. Pardon my snarkiness (which that coverContinue reading “Review: Four Ever by Sloane Kennedy”

Review: The Experiment by Rebecca Raine

As a professional medical editor for the day job, I thought it was hilarious that the sections of this book were labeled according to the sections of a journal article, down to the “Methods” and “Limitations.” Even better, the headings accurately reported what part of the plot the section covered. This conceit was cute whileContinue reading “Review: The Experiment by Rebecca Raine”

Review: How to Hack a Hacker (Unholy Trifecta #3) by A.J. Sherwood

Read my review of Unholy Trifecta #1, How to Shield an Assassin Read my review of Unholy Trifecta #2, How to Steal a Thief The few problems I had with the previous books in this series spilled into the conclusion of this particular found-family all getting their happily ever after. Not every author wants toContinue reading “Review: How to Hack a Hacker (Unholy Trifecta #3) by A.J. Sherwood”

Review: Dedicated (Rhythm of Love #1) by Neve Wilder

This book is a friends-to-lovers romance that swerves strongly into “idiots in love” territory, which means I had a blast reading it. Individually, Les and Evan are well-written, complex characters with a strong history of friendship currently on the rocks. They both approached stardom differently, so it makes sense that this book opens with themContinue reading “Review: Dedicated (Rhythm of Love #1) by Neve Wilder”

Review: Royally Screwed by Lynn Van Dorn

This novel is one of those books that would probably have better reviews if the back-cover description was a bit more comprehensive. Some aspects of this book that verge strongly into light BDSM territory are not going to be for everyone. The early chapters showing the characters as they age together place it firmly inContinue reading “Review: Royally Screwed by Lynn Van Dorn”

Review: Folk Lore Series by K.A. Merikan

Where the Devil Says Goodnight (Book 1) Potential readers should heed the “dark” warning in this book’s description because more than a few scenes are not for the faint of heart. Merikan dives deep into Slavic mythology to draw monsters to the surface, both paranormal and utterly human. Adam and Emil pay the price, timeContinue reading “Review: Folk Lore Series by K.A. Merikan”

Review: Natural Twenty (Roll for Love #1) by Charlie Novak

This book features an incredibly sweet romance between two geeky business owners, featuring delightful secondary characters and an adorable dog. Book protagonists don’t exist in a vacuum, and sometimes it’s nice to have their friends cheering along with you for that happily ever after. In this particular story, Jay and Leo face very real-world obstaclesContinue reading “Review: Natural Twenty (Roll for Love #1) by Charlie Novak”
