Review: Blood Series by Brea Alepoú

More Than Blood (Book 1) This paranormal romance story includes a cast of intriguing characters and plenty of sexy bits. However, is it wrong to wish that the book had included more of the worldbuilding and plot than romance-related drama? As much as I enjoyed meeting Karter and the vampire den to whom he findsContinue reading “Review: Blood Series by Brea Alepoú”

Review: The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings (Black & Blue #1) by Lily Morton

If I accidentally moved into a haunted house, I’d probably fall for the cute, local ghost tour guide too. Especially if his psychic gifts can help me un-haunt my house. The blue hair is probably just a bonus. Apparently, I identified a lot with Levi as a character because most of all of his decisionsContinue reading “Review: The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings (Black & Blue #1) by Lily Morton”

Review: Werewolves of Chernobyl by K.A. Merikan & L.A. Witt

I enjoy both these authors and the recent miniseries about Chernobyl on HBO, so this book pinged my interest when I stumbled across it. While I lean toward vampires rather than werewolves in my paranormal romance tastes, the premise intrigued me immediately. The human character, Quinn, annoyed me at the beginning. He starts a bitContinue reading “Review: Werewolves of Chernobyl by K.A. Merikan & L.A. Witt”

Review: Pendulum (Kingdom of Night #1) by Joel Abernathy

I made it a goal to read more M/M books written by male-presenting authors, and this trilogy looked like a great choice that featured lots of my favorite things in the paranormal romance genre. On the plus side, this book was well-written, and it was easy enough to get swept along in the plot. However,Continue reading “Review: Pendulum (Kingdom of Night #1) by Joel Abernathy”

Review: Folk Lore Series by K.A. Merikan

Where the Devil Says Goodnight (Book 1) Potential readers should heed the “dark” warning in this book’s description because more than a few scenes are not for the faint of heart. Merikan dives deep into Slavic mythology to draw monsters to the surface, both paranormal and utterly human. Adam and Emil pay the price, timeContinue reading “Review: Folk Lore Series by K.A. Merikan”

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: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper

Having previously only read serial novellas by this author, I was delighted when she announced a stand-alone novel-length project. This book contains all of the elements that I have come to love this author for, such as satisfying paranormal romance arcs featuring unique and fantastical characters. Draper is still one of the few “reverse harem”Continue reading “Review: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper”

Review: Handsome Death by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for the full price. I am kicking myself for not reading this sooner. I have never failed to adore anything written by this author, and this might be my favorite book of hers so far. From the first page, Bauer subverts pretty muchContinue reading “Review: Handsome Death by Sara Dobie Bauer”
