Review: Inferno Series by J. R. Gray

Clouded Hell (Book 1) This book is not a dark romance, though it gets pretty dark at times. Not because of the kinks between the main characters, but simply because of the worlds of organized crime and underground fighting they’re involved with. It’s immediately clear, however, that Remi and Dante are anti-heroes rather than villains,Continue reading “Review: Inferno Series by J. R. Gray”

Review: Break My Shell by K.A. Merikan

About halfway through this book, I felt the urge to tweet about it: “When you think you’re gonna read a ridiculous kinky romp and it turns out to be a really sweet, poignant love story instead.” I’ve gotten to the point (due to the sheer amount of reading being done) that I’m no longer officiallyContinue reading “Review: Break My Shell by K.A.

Review: The Sharp Edge of Bliss by Sorcha Black

I’m not going to lie: the “alphahole” and hitman mentioned on the back-cover text are what initially drew me to this book. I scanned a few of the reviews, and many of them also seemed to enjoy Star’s character, so that was another contributing factor to why I chose to read it. Ultimately, Black soldContinue reading “Review: The Sharp Edge of Bliss by Sorcha Black”

Review: Four Mercenaries Series by K.A. Merikan

Their Bounty (Book 1) I’m a sucker for found family stories, and even though this book is only partially that, it ensured my interest beyond the main plot. Clover is kind of a disaster, but he quickly becomes THEIR disaster despite lots of kicking and screaming on some sides (looking at you, Drake). Despite theirContinue reading “Review: Four Mercenaries Series by K.A. Merikan”

Review: Escort Series by Sloane Kennedy

Gabriel’s Rule (Book 1) I haven’t looked at the original publication date to be sure, but I feel that this book is one of the first by this prolific author. The story itself, including the plot and characters, are entertaining. However, the writing style itself includes an inexperienced author’s hallmarks, such as mid-scene point-of-view (POV)Continue reading “Review: Escort Series by Sloane Kennedy”

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.
