Review: Three Player Co-op Series by Allyson Lindt

Looking For It (Book 1) I’m a firm believer that romance novels are for everyone, not just (straight) women. That said, sometimes it’s obvious who the intended audience of a book is supposed to be, which is the case for this title. It is blatant wish-fulfillment, utterly indulgent, and honestly: There’s nothing wrong with thatContinue reading “Review: Three Player Co-op Series by Allyson Lindt”

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: 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: 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: Trinity Masters Series by Mari Carr & Lila Dubois

Primal Passion (Book 2) I abandoned the first book in this series at about 70%. The three-way arranged marriage via secret society concept intrigued me. Unfortunately, the book used it more as an excuse for three characters to launch immediately into sexual escapades without any personal connection. By the time the external plot showed up,Continue reading “Review: Trinity Masters Series by Mari Carr & Lila Dubois”

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: Dark Orchid Trilogy by Auryn Hadley

Power of Lies (Book 1) The easiest way to include a lot of erotica in a fantasy novel is to toss in some lust magic. But Hadley doesn’t keep things quite so simple, by layering in other elements of magic to her excellent world-building. The erotica always makes sense, based on the rules of theContinue reading “Review: Dark Orchid Trilogy by Auryn Hadley”

Review: Demons’ Muse Series by Auryn Hadley

The Kiss of Death (Book 1) The “angels are bad, demons are good” trope is not unfamiliar in paranormal romance, but this series puts a different spin on things by including a unique magic system, multiple dimensions, and a new way to look at how angels and demons affected religion on Earth. The heroine’s powerContinue reading “Review: Demons’ Muse Series by Auryn Hadley”

Review: It’s Complicated Series by Brill Harper

All Together (Book 1) When I snagged this book, I figured I was taking a risk because the combination of college students and romance usually means plenty of angst and immaturity. But when I started reading, I was immediately sucked into the story through the sheer force of personality of the three characters, even beforeContinue reading “Review: It’s Complicated Series by Brill Harper”

Review: Comes in Threes Series by Elia Winters

Read my review of book 1, Three-Way Split. Just Past Two (Book 2) Even though I enjoyed the story, relationship, and writing in the previous book in this shared-world series, I didn’t rush right into book two. Based on the premise, I figured the “dark moment” would be fraught with a married couple experiencing jealousyContinue reading “Review: Comes in Threes Series by Elia Winters”
