Review: The Flame (1001 Dark Nights/Desire Exchange novella) by Christopher Rice

Often novellas either feel like a padded-out short story or a rushed novel. This was neither, giving all the background detail between each of the three main characters necessary to make the next step in their relationship feel natural and inevitable. Additionally, the supernatural element of the story blended seamlessly with the relationship arc betweenContinue reading “Review: The Flame (1001 Dark Nights/Desire Exchange novella) by Christopher Rice”

Author Interview with Sara Dobie Bauer

There’s nothing better than when a fabulous author is also a lovely person and friend. I’ve been hooked on Sara Dobie Bauer’s writing since I first read Bite Somebody, and her darker work is just as enticing. Today, I picked her brain about her latest release, Escaping Exile. ABOUT THE BOOK Andrew is a vampire fromContinue reading “Author Interview with Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: Escaping Exile (Escape #1) by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend; I received an electronic advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. The first thing you notice about this novella is the vibrant narrative voice. You learn everything you need to know about the main character and his circumstances within the first chapter, during the inciting incident,Continue reading “Review: Escaping Exile (Escape #1) by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Author Interview with Rachell Nichole

The publishing industry can be a roller coaster, and often, its up to authors to make the most of it. To help Rachell Nichole ride the high of her latest release, I came up with some fun and sexy questions that highlight A Love Affair in Las Vegas. ABOUT THE BOOK Dawn Jansen has only everContinue reading “Author Interview with Rachell Nichole”

Review: “The Unexpected Infatuation” by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased this short story ebook for full price.  I wasn’t sure about this short story at first. I’m not keen on the idea of anyone cheating in a relationship, nor do I particularly find the “gay for you” trope appealing. The writing of this story, however,Continue reading “Review: “The Unexpected Infatuation” by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: Lord & Master (The Billionaires #3) by Emma Holly

I had a great time reconnecting with my favorite trio, but this book threw me for a bit of a loop. Not in a bad way, whatsoever. But it was a distinctly different sort of story than its predecessor. Part of what I loved about Beck & Call was that the three characters grow into aContinue reading “Review: Lord & Master (The Billionaires #3) by Emma Holly”

Review: Beck & Call (The Billionaires #2) by Emma Holly

I think it’s a testament to how engrossing I found this book that I didn’t realize the title was a play on two of the main characters’ names until over halfway through reading the story. I read this book on the recommendation of a blogger that I enjoy who talks about her romance pet peeves.Continue reading “Review: Beck & Call (The Billionaires #2) by Emma Holly”

Review: The Billionaire Bad Boys Club (The Billionaires #1) by Emma Holly

So much for taking a break from the romance and erotica books! This read (and probably the subsequent reads in the series) was inspired by a blog post by author Cara McKinnon, where she discussed how one of her romance pet peeves is three-way relationships where there’s only a real relationship between two of theContinue reading “Review: The Billionaire Bad Boys Club (The Billionaires #1) by Emma Holly”

Review: Lights, Camera, Cupid! (Bluewater Bay #6)

“Just Another Day” by L.A. Witt: I loved this quick check-in with our first Bluewater Bay couple, actors Carter and Levi. Levi is his usual cantankerous and loveable self, Carter is still too perfect for words, and I’d be jealous of those cats if I didn’t own three ridiculous Siamese of my own. Also, thoseContinue reading “Review: Lights, Camera, Cupid! (Bluewater Bay #6)”

Review: Outside the Lines (Bluewater Bay #22) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author of this novel; however, I purchased the ebook for full price. My metric for how I view a good romance novel has turned into whether the interpersonal relationships are occurring between mature adults. I don’t have time for whiny teenage angst produced by characters in their twenties, thirties,Continue reading “Review: Outside the Lines (Bluewater Bay #22) by Anna Zabo”
