Review: “Mr. Gold” by Margot Rose

A fun, quick read. The developing relationship between the characters could have been fraught and over-dramatic, but Rose balances the need for tension in the story with the realities of modern, mature adults. It’s a romance story, so you already know that there’s going to be a happily ever after. My favorite part of this […]

Review: Can’t Escape Love (Reluctant Royals #3.5) by Alyssa Cole

Once again, Cole impresses me with her ability to weave timelines together within different stories. This series interlude fills in some of the gaps of the second Reluctant Royals book, including interactions between the main heroine and her parents. I adore Regina, and I don’t even pity her for not getting to become a “royal” […]

Review: The Contract by Margot Rose

This read was a fun escape. But where I thought I understood what I was getting into, it managed to surprise me at every turn. “Love at first sight” is a romance trope I just can’t get behind, but “insta-lust” can be a LOT of fun when done right. Rose does it right in this […]

Review: Once Ghosted, Twice Shy (Reluctant Royals #2.5) by Alyssa Cole

Though the initial attraction I had to the Reluctant Royals series was the royalty aspect, I quickly fell in love with Cole’s writing and amazing characters. Even though no royals even appear onscreen in this supplemental novella, the story still packed an amazing combination of love and heartbreak into a limited number of pages. The […]

Review: A Duke by Default (Reluctant Royals #2) by Alyssa Cole

Saying that I didn’t like this book as much as the previous in the series does a disservice to this book, because I still enjoyed it thoroughly. This is completely subjective reasoning on my part, because I did not connect with this heroine as much.  She’s a rich trust fund kid, even though she struggles […]

Review: Belle By Night (Dommes By Night #1) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. Having absolutely zero experience with how the phone sex industry works, this was a fun, escapist story. I will always be a fan of three-dimensional characters and romances with a unique “meet-cute.”

Review: Love Around the Corner by Sally Malcolm

Disclaimer: I received an electronic version of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have a soft spot for contemporary romance stories that have evolved with the times. So many relationships begin with the partners meeting online these days (my own included) that more traditional “meet-cutes” almost start to feel […]

Review: Between the Lines by Sally Malcolm

Disclaimer: I received an advanced electronic copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. This book is set in the same world (and town) as the author’s previous book, Perfect Day. It is not necessary to have read that book first, but it puts certain events into perspective. Otherwise, Theo and […]

Review: The Omega Objection (San Andreas Shifters #2) by G.L. Carriger

I pre-ordered this book, and immediately tore through it as soon as I had a free evening. I do not regret either of these decisions. Returning to the wacky werewolf pack of San Francisco was a delight, especially with the new focus on characters Isaac and Tank. 

Review: “Marine Biology” (San Andreas Shifters short story) by G.L. Carriger

Cute story that was short and sweet. I’m not a huge fan of the “insta-love” trope in romances, but you can hand-wave it away here as a werewolf mating thing. Getting some background into the characters that I adore in The Sumage Solution was nice, however. The plot aspect of this story felt a bit […]
