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”

Author Interview with J.K. Knauss

One of the best things about being an “indie” author is having the ability to re-brand yourself or your works whenever necessary. Check out the gorgeous new cover for J.K. Knauss’ Seven Noble Knights in celebration of her relaunch with Encircle Publications! Below, I’ve also included an interview with the author that has previously beenContinue reading “Author Interview with J.K. Knauss”

A Year in Reading: 2020

As usual, I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge for the year to 50 books. That’s about a book a week, and combined with novellas and graphic novels, I usually end up with a final tally of around 100 books. Not bad. Makes me feel like something in my life is productive, and reading will alwaysContinue reading “A Year in Reading: 2020”

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”

December Wrap-Up & January Goals

Hey, we did it! If you’re reading this, we survived the train wreck that was 2020. I sincerely hope that your loved ones fared as well, and that we all do much better in 2021. I’m keeping expectations low and assuming that I’m in for another year doing a lot of reading and playing videoContinue reading “December Wrap-Up & January Goals”

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”
