Review: What We May Be by Layla Reyne

I love a good poly romance, and I love a good mystery, so when this one came highly recommended by fellow readers, I knew I had to give it a shot. Reyne immediately upended my expectations of this story by weaving a second-chance element into the dynamic between her three extraordinary heroes rather than throwingContinue reading “Review: What We May Be by Layla Reyne”

This post includes reviews of the books in The Cowboy and the Dom series: First Rodeo (#1) Razor’s Edge (#2) No Ghosts (#3) The Soldier and the Angel (#3.5) First Rodeo (Book 1) I’ve become a lot more intentional about which books I write full-length reviews for rather than just a few sentences on Goodreads.Continue reading “Review: The Cowboy and the Dom Series by Jodi Payne & B.A. Torgtuga”

Review: Cold Hard Ground (Carpe Noctem #1) by Ariel Millar

I am a huge fan of this author in her persona as a contemporary MM romance writer (E.M. Lindsey), so I immediately pounced on this book when it came out. Then I did that weird thing where I put off reading it, only to devour it in a single evening once I started. I’m notContinue reading “Review: Cold Hard Ground (Carpe Noctem #1) by Ariel Millar”

This post includes reviews of the books in the Alphabet of Desire series: A is for Aftercare (#1) B is for Beg (#2) C is for Comfort (#3) A is for Aftercare (Book 1) This book was a relatively low-angst read, but that doesn’t mean Davison skimps on any of the tension necessary to craftingContinue reading “Review: Alphabet of Desire Series by Colette Davison”

Review: Making a Mark (Triskelion #2) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga

Read my review of Breaking the Rules (Triskelion #1) Disclaimer: I received an advanced electronic ARC of this novel from the author. The first book in this planned trilogy introduced me to an amazing author pairing and lived rent-free in my brain for the entire summer. I put off re-reading it until right before theContinue reading “Review: Making a Mark (Triskelion #2) by Jodi Payne & B.A. Tortuga”

Review: Beautifully Unexpected by Lily Morton

Morton excels at packing humor and emotion into a vibrant, immersive story that you can’t help but read straight through to the end. I knew that, as usual, her storytelling would leave me with the sort of book hangover that is difficult to shake. Mags and Laurie wormed their way into my heart much asContinue reading “Review: Beautifully Unexpected by Lily Morton”

Review: Hallowed Moon by Kelly Fox

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this novella from the author. I had a lot of fun with this paranormal romance novella because it was a quick introduction to a fascinating new world with lots of possibilities. From the author’s note at the beginning, it’s obvious that Fox has close emotional ties with thisContinue reading “Review: Hallowed Moon by Kelly Fox”

Review: Breaking the Rules (Triskelion #1) by Jodi Payne & B. A. Tortuga

This book is the first I’ve read by either of these authors, and I immediately spent the next few days reading more of their work after finishing this one. I already knew going into this title that I enjoy romance that includes power dynamics and age gaps—the fact that this particular story is a “reverse”Continue reading “Review: Breaking the Rules (Triskelion #1) by Jodi Payne & B. A. Tortuga”

Review: Blood in the Water by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this book from the authors. This reaction didn’t happen when I read the previous co-written books by these authors, but it turns out when you combine Hawthorne’s steamy angst with Denning’s sweet feels and add a healthy dose of supernatural…you get tears. Like, all the tears. They’re goodContinue reading “Review: Blood in the Water by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning”
