Review: The Rules by Jamie Fessenden

I’m not going to lie—this book is a little bonkers. But in a strangely good way. It’s a romance that is almost too implausible to be real, but have you looked at the world lately? These days, anything is possible, including a gay married couple hiring a private housekeeper because one of the husbands won’tContinue reading “Review: The Rules by Jamie Fessenden”

Review: On the Market Series by E.M. Lindsey

Love Him Free (Book 1) A Jewish baker and a deaf adult film star walk into a bar. It sounds like the beginning of a joke, except here the joke is that they never go to a bar, but the characters are very much real. Simon is a small-town guy battling massive amounts of anxietyContinue reading “Review: On the Market Series by E.M. Lindsey”

Review: Twist of Fate Series by Lucy Lennox & Sloane Kennedy

Lost and Found (Book 1) As the series name implies, a twist of fate (and/or sheer coincidence) brings Xander and Bennett together after 15 years. The circumstances around their parting were traumatic for both, so their reunion is significantly less “meet cute” and much more “It’s a good thing Xander probably knows the best placeContinue reading “Review: Twist of Fate Series by Lucy Lennox & Sloane Kennedy”

Review: Havenwood Series by Riley Hart

Giving Chase (Book 1) Falling for the older brother’s best friend isn’t necessarily a trope I lean toward, but I’ll make an exception when the characters are far beyond high school and the best friend has just returned from over a decade away. The chemistry between Chase and Kellan is undeniable, but they face multipleContinue reading “Review: Havenwood Series by Riley Hart”

Review: Kink Chronicles Series by Luna David & Morningstar Ashley

Open Mind (Book 1) This book is one of those rare stories that sucked me in while I read, enjoying every scene as I tore through them, and then realized after I finished how much some elements of the plot bugged me. I don’t have triggers in the traditional sense, but I suppose part ofContinue reading “Review: Kink Chronicles Series by Luna David & Morningstar Ashley”

Review: Door of Bruises (Thornchapel #4) by Sierra Simone

Read my reviews of the previous Thornchapel books: A Lesson in Thorns Feast of Sparks Harvest of Sighs I waited six months for the finale of this fantastic series, and every moment was worth it. Simone continues to raise the stakes in both reality and the bits of fantasy elements that seep into this world,Continue reading “Review: Door of Bruises (Thornchapel #4) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Elite Protection Services Series by Onley James

Intoxicating (Book 1) Intoxicating skirts the line of being an insta-love story, but the growing attraction between Linc and Wyatt takes on multiple dimensions that entranced me. The “Daddy” dynamic is not as overt as implied by the back-cover description—it trends toward light kink rather than age-regression. Instead, Wyatt receives a sense of structure toContinue reading “Review: Elite Protection Services Series by Onley James”

Review: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin

Spellbound (Book 1) Paranormal queer romance in early twentieth-century New York City seems to be a trope I’m particularly fond of, so I didn’t hesitate to purchase this book when at least two authors I follow raved about it on Twitter. The story itself did not disappoint in any measure, from the romance to theContinue reading “Review: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin”

Review: It’s Complicated Series by Brill Harper

All Together (Book 1) When I snagged this book, I figured I was taking a risk because the combination of college students and romance usually means plenty of angst and immaturity. But when I started reading, I was immediately sucked into the story through the sheer force of personality of the three characters, even beforeContinue reading “Review: It’s Complicated Series by Brill Harper”

Review: Behind These Doors (Radical Proposals #1) by Jude Lucens

Though it focuses on a single relationship between two characters, this book made me fall in love with multiple characters across multiple relationships, all of whom had their own detailed lives and agency. Lucens balances an intricate drama of love, friendship, polyamory, and heartbreak in one of the best historical romances I’ve read to date.Continue reading “Review: Behind These Doors (Radical Proposals #1) by Jude Lucens”
