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 2 (Eburosi Chronicles #9) by R.A. Steffan

I finished the first installment of The Dragon Mistress on a Friday night, right before I was supposed to play video games with my spouse and a friend. Instead, I devoured the next installment in a single evening while they played without me. I regret nothing. The dragons play a larger role in this story, as […]

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: The Lion Mistress (Eburosi Chronicles #5-#7) by R.A. Steffan

Because of how much I enjoyed each installment of The Horse Mistress, my first experience with the world of the Eburosi Chronicles, I went ahead and bought the full collection of the next adventure as one book. I have no regrets about that decision. This world gave me one of the most intense book hangovers of […]

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: The Flame (1001 Dark Nights/Desire Exchange novella) by Christopher Rice

Often novellas either feel like a padded-out short story or a rushed novel. This was neither, giving all the background detail between each of the three main characters necessary to make the next step in their relationship feel natural and inevitable. Additionally, the supernatural element of the story blended seamlessly with the relationship arc between […]

Review: Outside the Lines (Bluewater Bay #22) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author of this novel; however, I purchased the ebook for full price. My metric for how I view a good romance novel has turned into whether the interpersonal relationships are occurring between mature adults. I don’t have time for whiny teenage angst produced by characters in their twenties, thirties, […]
