Book Review: Couture Crush (Model Love) by Charlie Novak

My first visit to this new, multi-author series happens to be with one of my favorite authors, so I knew I was in for a treat. Novak brings her lovely writing style and well-crafted characters to a series about professional male models (and the men who love them) with a frank look at both theContinue reading “Book Review: Couture Crush (Model Love) by Charlie Novak”

Book Review: Hostile Takeover (The Game #8) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of previous books in The Game series: We’re now eight books into this epic, interconnected romance series, and Cara Dee consistently delivers with each new installment. This book does technically work as a stand-alone, but I highly recommend that readers also check out Out of the Ashes (The Game #5) to bestContinue reading “Book Review: Hostile Takeover (The Game #8) by Cara Dee”

Book Review: Soft Hands (Sin Bin: West Coast #2) by E.M. Lindsey

Lindsey treats us to a few of my favorite tropes in the latest installment of their hockey romance series. Poly romance arcs are a particular favorite because it’s like getting multiple story arcs for the price of one, and as usual, Lindsey upends every expectation by creating a unique dynamic between three well-developed characters. Plus,Continue reading “Book Review: Soft Hands (Sin Bin: West Coast #2) by E.M. Lindsey”

Book Review: Secret Service by Tal Bauer

Bauer is one of those authors whose stunning use of language elevates the work from general storytelling to a genuine art form. I’d probably have loved this book all on its own based on the excellent characterization and intricate plotline, but luckily, I got to read this amazing bit of literature instead. The action startsContinue reading “Book Review: Secret Service by Tal Bauer”

Book Review: Diviner’s Game Series by Jennifer Cody

This post includes reviews of the books in the Diviner’s Game series: Bishop to Knight One (Diviner’s Game #1) When I tried to read an earlier edition of this book, I didn’t get very far. A few months later, I read other books by this author and fell in love with her creativity and writingContinue reading “Book Review: Diviner’s Game Series by Jennifer Cody”

Book Review: Play by Nikki Markham

This book is not officially part of the series, per the author, and it works very well as a stand-alone. But, both main characters here are featured in Impact, and the overall friendship connections involved in the larger cast of characters are more interesting and carry a bit more weight if you have read theContinue reading “Book Review: Play by Nikki Markham”

Book Review: Pieces of Silver (Starian Tale) by Iris Foxglove

This novella works best if you’ve read the main Starian Cycle series of novels, mostly for the identities and relationships between all of the secondary characters who make up the Starian royal family, their consorts, and their important officials. However, the narrators for this particular story are the palace guard captain and royal tailor, whichContinue reading “Book Review: Pieces of Silver (Starian Tale) by Iris Foxglove”

Book Review: Rebound by Kate Hawthorne

A bit of a long-running joke in this author’s social media groups is that she can’t write a stand-alone novel. This book, however, definitely stands alone, and whether she wrote it that way on purpose or not is irrelevant, because it still includes everything I love about her writing and storytelling. Ben and Thomas areContinue reading “Book Review: Rebound by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: Lunatic (Necessary Evils #6) by Onley James

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Necessary Evils series: Unhinged (#1) Psycho (#2) Moonstruck (#3) Damaged (#3.5) Headcase (#4) Mad Man (#5) Every time I can’t possibly love this series more, James ups the ante on us again. I knew going in that this book would cross over with another series by the same author, and that itContinue reading “Book Review: Lunatic (Necessary Evils #6) by Onley James”

Book Review: Prepared (Auctioned #6) by Cara Dee

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Auctioned series. What I expected with this book: Total fan service of Gray and Darius’ happily ever after, featuring bachelor party shenanigans, a ceremony and reception I’d cry my way through, and familiar, beloved characters showing up from other series. Had that been all this bookContinue reading “Book Review: Prepared (Auctioned #6) by Cara Dee”
