Review: The Star of Anatolia (The Galipp Files #1) by Jamaila Brinkley

When one reads a fantasy series, one expects the main character to be rather fantastical. But there’s something to be said for viewing the world through the eyes of a more “boring” person, with no magical ability of her own. However, Anastasia Galipp is far from normal. She is a smart, independent young woman making […]

Review: Can’t Escape Love (Reluctant Royals #3.5) by Alyssa Cole

Once again, Cole impresses me with her ability to weave timelines together within different stories. This series interlude fills in some of the gaps of the second Reluctant Royals book, including interactions between the main heroine and her parents. I adore Regina, and I don’t even pity her for not getting to become a “royal” […]

Review: The Contract by Margot Rose

This read was a fun escape. But where I thought I understood what I was getting into, it managed to surprise me at every turn. “Love at first sight” is a romance trope I just can’t get behind, but “insta-lust” can be a LOT of fun when done right. Rose does it right in this […]

Review: The Dragon Mistress: Book 1 (Eburosi Chronicles #8) by R.A. Steffan

This amazing series picks up approximately a decade in the future with the story of Frella, the younger sister of one of the heroes of the previous collection. Possibly my favorite thing about Steffan’s writing is their ability to create fully fleshed female narrative characters who each have their own strengths, weaknesses, and personalities. Frella […]

Review: Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels #3.5) by Ilona Andrews

This novella takes place between Magic Strikes and Magic Bleeds in the Kate Daniels universe, but the point-of-view character is Kate’s friend Andrea Nash instead. We’ve already been introduced to Andrea and know secrets about her character from previous books in the series, but this time, she’s the hero of her own adventure. Once again, […]

Review: The Horse Mistress: Book 4 (Eburosi Chronicles #4) by R.A. Steffan

Now that our three heroes are in a solid relationship, it was time to shake things up a bit. It would have been easy for the author to focus on a more character-driven story, but I love how they don’t let the readers forget that war is coming. Times are changing, and our heroes have […]

Review: Once Ghosted, Twice Shy (Reluctant Royals #2.5) by Alyssa Cole

Though the initial attraction I had to the Reluctant Royals series was the royalty aspect, I quickly fell in love with Cole’s writing and amazing characters. Even though no royals even appear onscreen in this supplemental novella, the story still packed an amazing combination of love and heartbreak into a limited number of pages. The […]

Review: The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1) by Kresley Cole

I started this series on the recommendation of a friend who is a romance author, and I devoured this sexy novella in a single evening. I had certain preconceptions about the two main characters based on the back-cover text, which were smashed immediately. The heroine Myst, especially, was not what I expected at all. The […]

Review: Escaping Mortality (Escape #3) by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. The cliffhanger at the end of book 2 in this trilogy,¬†Escaping Solitude, left me frantic. Luckily, this installment picks up mere moments from where the previous left off and continues the story without missing a beat. This trilogy of novellas will make for a […]

Review: Belle By Night (Dommes By Night #1) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. Having absolutely zero experience with how the phone sex industry works, this was a fun, escapist story. I will always be a fan of three-dimensional characters and romances with a unique “meet-cute.”
