Review: A Real Good Lie by Kate Hawthorne

I’m a sucker for the fake relationship trope, so I was excited that one of my favorite romance writers came out with a new book featuring just that thing. Though this novel is less kinky than some of Hawthorne’s other works, it still features the excellent writing, characterization, and storytelling I’ve come to expect fromContinue reading “Review: A Real Good Lie by Kate Hawthorne”

Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2021

I’ll admit it — I’m not cut out for the virtual convention life. I had a conversation with a friend earlier this week and brought up how late I was in writing this con report, and she pointed out that my experience with this year’s In Your Write Mind 2021 was even more skewed thanContinue reading “Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2021”

Review: A Time to Rise by Tal Bauer

I’m not sure what I expected of this book, but it was about a million times better than I anticipated. The characters, story, and situation were more exciting than I could have imagined, and it all packed an amazing emotional punch at the end. It’s one of those harder to categorize books: not quite aContinue reading “Review: A Time to Rise by Tal Bauer”

Review: No Surrender (No Regrets #1) by Nora Phoenix

This book is the first spinoff to the No Shame series by the same author. I’m pretty sure it can be read as a stand-alone, but I both highly recommend it and think that readers who enjoy this book will likely also enjoy going back to read those books as well. Go ahead. I’ll wait.Continue reading “Review: No Surrender (No Regrets #1) by Nora Phoenix”

Review: Us Series by A. M. Arthur

This post reviews each of the available books in the Us series: Here For Us (#1) Sound of Us (#2) Uniquely Us (#3) Heart of Us (#4) Here For Us (Book 1) This novel is a slow-burn romance between three very different men, and I don’t just refer to their disparate ages. It also includesContinue reading “Review: Us Series by A. M. Arthur”

Review: Lust & Longing by E.M. Denning

It takes strong characterization to create two characters in a single scene and have me believe they’re meant to be together forever—and then split them up for 20 years. It takes even stronger characterization for me to stick with the point-of-view character over those 20 years when he’s kind of a jerk for many ofContinue reading “Review: Lust & Longing by E.M. Denning”

Review: Truth by His Hand by Casey Cameron

A friend recently complained to me that she has a hard time finding kinky fiction that dives into the point of view of the submissive character rather than the dominant partner. I didn’t set out to find a book that proves her wrong, but I’m so pleased that I stumbled across this delicious stand-alone title.Continue reading “Review: Truth by His Hand by Casey Cameron”

Review: The Four Series by Sloane Kennedy

This review includes the books currently available in The Four series: Forgotten: Luca (#1) Foreseen: Lex (#2) Forgiven: Con (#3) Forgotten: Luca (Book 1) This book can be read as a stand-alone story, but it works best in the context of two previous novels by Kennedy: Atonement (Protectors #6) and Unbroken (Protectors #12). Thematically, thisContinue reading “Review: The Four Series by Sloane Kennedy”
