Review: Spectred Isle (Green Men #1) by K.J. Charles

Though it’s not stated explicitly, I think this book is best read after the author’s The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal. Some secondary characters cross over, and it provides a good grounding on how the supernatural exists in this world. However, this book takes a deeper look at the nature of magic in this versionContinue reading “Review: Spectred Isle (Green Men #1) by K.J. Charles”

Today, we’re celebrating a blog tour for the lovely Genevieve Iseult Eldredge to celebrate the latest novel in her YA fantasy series, Circuit Fae.

ABOUT THEContinue reading “Author Interview with Genevieve Iseult Eldredge”

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

Disclaimer: 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 toContinue reading “Review: Moribund (Circuit Fae #1) by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge”

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

I 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 basedContinue reading “Review: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (Seducing the Sedgwicks #2) by Cat Sebastian”

Review: Bluewater Blues (Bluewater Bay #15) by G.B. Gordon

I started this book in the afternoon and finished it before I went to bed that evening. In fact, I devoured it so quickly that I didn’t even take a few notes in my phone while reading, like I usually do to make writing reviews easier. I couldn’t bear to tear myself away from theContinue reading “Review: Bluewater Blues (Bluewater Bay #15) by G.B. Gordon”

Review: All the Wrong Places (Bluewater Bay #14) by Ann Gallagher

Despite the primary premise of this book being a romance between two asexual characters, all of the really intriguing elements of this relationship revolved around what made the characters unique aside from their asexuality. Which I suppose proves the point. Both men were a study in contrasts. Brennan is a skater dude to reads scienceContinue reading “Review: All the Wrong Places (Bluewater Bay #14) by Ann Gallagher”

Review: Selfie (Bluewater Bay #13) by Amy Lane

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the two Bluewater Bay books that have made me cry so far are by the same author. I devoured this book in less than 24 hours, even pushing back work on my own book to both finish it and type up the review while everything is fresh inContinue reading “Review: Selfie (Bluewater Bay #13) by Amy Lane”

Review: How the Cookie Crumbles (Bluewater Bay #12) by Jaime Samms

I got incredibly spoiled by how good all the books in the Bluewater Bay series have been so far. This installment certainly wasn’t a terrible book by any means, writing-wise, but it didn’t hold up to the story-telling quality of the other novels. 

Review: Rain Shadow (Bluewater Bay #10) by L.A. Witt

One of the things I love most about this series is the diversity of characters. This doesn’t refer to just skin color, or occupation, or whether the character is famous or “normal,” but also in terms of personal history. In this case, Scott is a guy who hasn’t had a serious relationship in decades, andContinue reading “Review: Rain Shadow (Bluewater Bay #10) by L.A. Witt”

Review: The Deep of the Sound (Bluewater Bay #8) by Amy Lane

I was thrilled to see that the next book in this series was by the same author (and featured the same characters) as my favorite story in the Valentine’s Day anthology, “Nascha.” In fact, that story takes place over the same time period as this novel, and it was fun to see what was goingContinue reading “Review: The Deep of the Sound (Bluewater Bay #8) by Amy Lane”
