Review: Natural Twenty (Roll for Love #1) by Charlie Novak

This book features an incredibly sweet romance between two geeky business owners, featuring delightful secondary characters and an adorable dog. Book protagonists don’t exist in a vacuum, and sometimes it’s nice to have their friends cheering along with you for that happily ever after. In this particular story, Jay and Leo face very real-world obstaclesContinue reading “Review: Natural Twenty (Roll for Love #1) by Charlie Novak”

Review: The Game Series by Cara Dee

Top Priority (Book 1) When I read the description, I immediately loved this book’s concept—talk about the endless possibility of conflict. Since it was short and I had some time to kill before an appointment, I figured it’d made a fun afternoon read. Instead, I fell head over heels in love with both Lucas andContinue reading “Review: The Game Series by Cara Dee”

Review: Bad Habits (Wages of Sin #1) by Onley James & Neve Wilder

This book is another recent binge-read that I enjoyed every moment of. Everything about it should have been ridiculous, but all the characters wormed their way under my skin until I had to see what happens next. The plot is delightfully twisty, requiring both an assassin and hacker’s skills to solve, and even when thingsContinue reading “Review: Bad Habits (Wages of Sin #1) by Onley James & Neve Wilder”

Review: Enemies Like You by Annika Martin & Joanna Chambers

I have so many books on my to-be-read pile at this point that when I’m tempted to buy another, I’ve started glancing at the top few reviews. And because I’m contrary, reviewers with complaints tend to make me even more interested in this book, which was definitely the case here. The first few chapters clarifyContinue reading “Review: Enemies Like You by Annika Martin & Joanna Chambers”

Review: Conventionally Yours (True Colors #1) by Annabeth Albert

2020 has been a bit of a year, and one of the things I miss most is going to conventions to spend time with fellow readers and writers and gamers. Even though my gaming is mostly on the computer, the social aspect mixed with the competition is familiar enough to me that this book suckedContinue reading “Review: Conventionally Yours (True Colors #1) by Annabeth Albert”

Review: Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

Snarkiness, terrible jokes, and a dose of anxiety are how I fit myself into this crazy world, so it should come as no surprise that I fell in love with the character of Luc at once. Even better, so much of Oliver’s personality is shown through the text, even in a story from Luc’s pointContinue reading “Review: Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall”

Review: Marquis of Secret Doors (Royal Powers #3) by Lynn Lorenz

Read my review of Royal Powers #1, Duking It Out, by E.J. Russell Read my review of Royal Powers #2, The Hero and the Hidden Royal, by Renae Kaye For the third installment of this shared-world romance series, the author takes advantage of the fact that these countries are European-based and also dips back intoContinue reading “Review: Marquis of Secret Doors (Royal Powers #3) by Lynn Lorenz”

Review: The Hero and the Hidden Royal (Royal Powers #2) by Renae Kaye

Read my review of Royal Powers Book 1, Duking It Out, by E.J. Russell After the first installment of this shared-world series focused on the royals who have superpowers, I was excited to read something similar yet completely different. The fact that some “commoners” also have superpowers is unsurprising based on how the world works.Continue reading “Review: The Hero and the Hidden Royal (Royal Powers #2) by Renae Kaye”

Review: Duking It Out (Royal Powers #1) by E.J. Russell

I picked up the first installment in this superpowers-themed, shared-world romance series because I’d read another book by the first author. The author note at the beginning helps with the world-building issues in such a short text, and even though I still have lots of questions about these countries, none of them prevented me fromContinue reading “Review: Duking It Out (Royal Powers #1) by E.J. Russell”

Review: Hexmaker (Hexworld #2) by Jordan L. Hawk

As usual, Hawk excels in crafting unique characters that you can’t help but fall in love with and root for. On the surface, this book is a typical tale of two people from different social strata falling in love and dealing with the barriers between them. But there’s also a bonus police procedural plot andContinue reading “Review: Hexmaker (Hexworld #2) by Jordan L. Hawk”
