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”

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: 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”

Review: Aftermath Series by Cara Dee

This post includes reviews of the books in the Aftermath series: Aftermath (#1) Outcome (#2) Aftermath (Book 1) Dee once again emotionally wrecks her readers in all the best ways with this story about two men who never would have met under “normal” circumstances. Instead, they are thrown together as cellmates when kidnapped by aContinue reading “Review: Aftermath Series by Cara Dee”

Review: This is Not a Horror Movie by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this book for full price. I happen to know that the author spends time every year in Longboat Key, Florida. Her love for this place shines through the pages of this entertaining book, filled to the brim with sweetness, humor, and just enough touches ofContinue reading “Review: This is Not a Horror Movie by Sara Dobie Bauer”
