Review: Subtle Blood (Will Darling Adventures #3) by K. J. Charles

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Will Darling Adventures series: Slippery Creatures (#1) The Sugared Game (#2) In most series in the suspense/thriller realm, even as a subgenre, the overall sense of danger starts small and then grows larger to encompass a threat to more people. Charles subverts this pattern for theContinue reading “Review: Subtle Blood (Will Darling Adventures #3) by K. J. Charles”

Review: Love Me Whole by Nicky James

I always go into romance novels in which one of the characters has a significant mental health issue with a grain of salt. Since I personally know someone with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), I went into this book with a whole bucketful. I am not an expert by any means, but as a reader, IContinue reading “Review: Love Me Whole by Nicky James”

Review: Unhinged (Necessary Evils #1) by Onley James

Disclaimer: I received an advanced electronic copy of this book from the author. A strong fictional tradition exists of rich men “collecting” people to serve their particular purposes. James twists this trope to showcase her specific talents as a writer by creating a family of adopted psycho/sociopaths trained by their father to serve a purposeContinue reading “Review: Unhinged (Necessary Evils #1) by Onley James”

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: 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: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin

Spellbound (Book 1) Paranormal queer romance in early twentieth-century New York City seems to be a trope I’m particularly fond of, so I didn’t hesitate to purchase this book when at least two authors I follow raved about it on Twitter. The story itself did not disappoint in any measure, from the romance to theContinue reading “Review: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin”

Review: Harvest of Sighs (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone

All books have a dark moment, right before things get better. This book, the third in the Thornchapel series, ends in the ultimate dark moment. Relationships were not great during this book. They were intense and hopeful and painful and tragic, making me fall in love with each of the characters. And now so manyContinue reading “Review: Harvest of Sighs (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone”

Review: American Queen (New Camelot #1) by Sierra Simone

I adore Arthurian literature, but not all of it. Lancelot has especially never been a particular favorite, for much the same reason Simone explains in this book: He’s a fanfic self-insert by the French so they could play with chivalry in a set of tales too old for such a relatively modern social construct. IContinue reading “Review: American Queen (New Camelot #1) by Sierra Simone”
