Review: Moribund (Circuit Fae #1) by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge

MoribundDisclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased a hardcopy version of this book for full price.

For all that I read urban fantasy and LGBT fiction, it surprises me that this is my first F/F urban fantasy — and a young adult (YA) novel, at that. But if a book had to be my first, I’m pleased that this was it. It definitely took everything that I love about urban fantasy, LGBT fiction, AND young adult fiction and transformed them into something wonderful and fully engrossing.  Continue reading

Review: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (Seducing the Sedgwicks #2) by Cat Sebastian

Gentleman Never Keeps ScoreI guess I’m a bit lucky coming to this book as a reader who doesn’t have a lot of experience with “Regency” romances. To me, this is merely an unexpected romance set in an historical era, so I was a lot more forgiving of aspects of the plot that seemed to bother other readers based on the reviews that I skimmed. This is the story of a shared quest that brings two very different men together, and I was happily along for the ride.  Continue reading

Review: “The Unexpected Infatuation” by Sara Dobie Bauer

unexpected infatuationDisclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased this short story ebook for full price. 


I wasn’t sure about this short story at first. I’m not keen on the idea of anyone cheating in a relationship, nor do I particularly find the “gay for you” trope appealing. The writing of this story, however, is extremely elegant and evocative of the time period and the narrator himself, so I found myself swept along anyway.  Continue reading

Review: New Hand (Bluewater Bay #23) by L.A. Witt

New Hand#SaveWolfsLanding

As amazing as it was to see so many recurring characters appear in one place in this book, I figured out pretty quickly that it’s because the series was coming to a close. I’d be more devastated, but this was definitely a long series and I loved every bit of the ride. (That being said, I definitely wrote “If the show is cancelled, I will riot” on my phone where I jot down notes while I read.)  Continue reading

Review: Operation Green Card (Bluewater Bay #21) by G.B. Gordon

Operation Green CardThe conceit of this book made for an interesting read in light of the immigration issues currently plaguing the United States. As a note, I fall solidly on the side of how the hoops for immigrating to this country are ridiculous, which is how the plot of Operation Green Card becomes even remotely plausible. So, we’re just going to go with it and look at the story as it stands on its own. Mostly, what I learned is that even fake weddings are incredibly stressful.  Continue reading

Review: Three Player Game (Bluewater Bay #20) by Jaime Samms

Three Player GameWhile creating a three-way relationship in a romance series, it would have been incredibly easy for this to devolve into straight-up erotica. Instead, the author takes three incredibly complex characters and builds a realistic relationship that includes all sorts of interesting stumbling blocks that grab the reader’s attention (even if it does make you want to smack at least once of the men at any point during the reading).  Continue reading
