Review: He’s Come Undone

“Appassionata” by Emma Barry As a person who also experiences anxiety (though of a different type than depicted here), Kristy’s journey spoke to me on multiple levels. I appreciated how she related to her life’s various elements, from her artistry to her agent to her old “friend” Brennan. I enjoyed even more how Brennan didContinue reading “Review: He’s Come Undone”

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: Fork in the Road by J. Coyne

Some novellas, especially in the romance genre, fall flat for me because I don’t get a complete sense of character development. In this case, however, Coyne uses carefully placed sentences to evoke a deep history between all three characters without ever “info-dumping” the nuts and bolts of their origin stories. Coyne also builds the comfortableContinue reading “Review: Fork in the Road by J. Coyne”

Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone

“The Seduction of Molly O’Flaherty” (Book 0.5) After meeting these characters in Simone’s Markham Hall series, I was intrigued enough to follow them to London for their romance saga. Like it says on the tin, this story is not necessary for the following books. However, it does an excellent job of introducing Molly and SilasContinue reading “Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Scientific Method Universe Series by Kris Ripper

Surrender the Past Sometimes the theme of a book is difficult to parse; not so with this installment of the extended Scientific Method Universe collection of stories. After meeting him as a bit character in the main series, I was excited to get to know Nick better in his own romance. Because it takes placeContinue reading “Review: Scientific Method Universe Series by Kris Ripper”

Review: Scientific Method Series by Kris Ripper

Catalysts (Book 1) The structure of this book is unusual but makes sense once you realize that it originally consisted of two books and that the first book originally consisted of a series of even shorter interludes. This narrative style might make the story disjointed for some readers, especially those who are looking for aContinue reading “Review: Scientific Method Series by Kris Ripper”

Review: Horns, Hugs, and Hunger (Gods & Demons #3) by Kaye Draper

Read my review of Gods & Demons book 1, Fates, Fins, and Fangs. Read my review of Gods & Demons book 2, Wishes, Wings, and Woes. Events pick up steam in the latest installment to this serial epic, which I appreciated. Action, adventure, and sexiness galore, which is what we’ve come to love and expectContinue reading “Review: Horns, Hugs, and Hunger (Gods & Demons #3) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Thalanian Dynasty Series by Katee Robert

Theirs For the Night (Book 1) This short novella is intended to introduce the reader to the characters of the Thalanian Dynasty, a freebie so that readers are hooked enough to buy the full-length follow-up novel. (Full disclosure: It worked on me.) The events within are sexy and steamy, and I enjoyed Meg as aContinue reading “Review: Thalanian Dynasty Series by Katee Robert”

Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk

“A Christmas Hex” (Book 2.5) This is one of those stories that could have worked any time of year — but the fact that it occurred around Christmas made it all the sweeter. After reading the full-length novels in this series, it was easy to forget that witches and familiars in New York City didContinue reading “Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone

This short and sexy follow-up to the New Camelot trilogy does much to explain Merlin’s role in the whole situation. It portrays two very different relationships across time in a way that also shows off how Simone uses point-of-view to amplify her storytelling. I do have some questions about the off-screen events that bring MerlinContinue reading “Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone”
