Review: Beautifully Unexpected by Lily Morton

Morton excels at packing humor and emotion into a vibrant, immersive story that you can’t help but read straight through to the end. I knew that, as usual, her storytelling would leave me with the sort of book hangover that is difficult to shake. Mags and Laurie wormed their way into my heart much asContinue reading “Review: Beautifully Unexpected by Lily Morton”

Review: Hallowed Moon by Kelly Fox

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this novella from the author. I had a lot of fun with this paranormal romance novella because it was a quick introduction to a fascinating new world with lots of possibilities. From the author’s note at the beginning, it’s obvious that Fox has close emotional ties with thisContinue reading “Review: Hallowed Moon by Kelly Fox”

Review: Breaking the Rules (Triskelion #1) by Jodi Payne & B. A. Tortuga

This book is the first I’ve read by either of these authors, and I immediately spent the next few days reading more of their work after finishing this one. I already knew going into this title that I enjoy romance that includes power dynamics and age gaps—the fact that this particular story is a “reverse”Continue reading “Review: Breaking the Rules (Triskelion #1) by Jodi Payne & B. A. Tortuga”

Review: Blood in the Water by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this book from the authors. This reaction didn’t happen when I read the previous co-written books by these authors, but it turns out when you combine Hawthorne’s steamy angst with Denning’s sweet feels and add a healthy dose of supernatural…you get tears. Like, all the tears. They’re goodContinue reading “Review: Blood in the Water by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning”

Review: This is Not a Horror Movie by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this book for full price. I happen to know that the author spends time every year in Longboat Key, Florida. Her love for this place shines through the pages of this entertaining book, filled to the brim with sweetness, humor, and just enough touches ofContinue reading “Review: This is Not a Horror Movie by Sara Dobie Bauer”

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: Head Games (Wages of Sin #3) by Onley James & Neve Wilder

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Wages of Sin series: Bad Habits (#1) Play Dirty (#2) A psychologist willing to act as a relationship counselor for a pair of self-proclaimed psychopaths is already an intriguing character to me, so I was hooked on Dr. Tobias Eastman from his first appearance in PlayContinue reading “Review: Head Games (Wages of Sin #3) by Onley James & Neve Wilder”

Review: Spare Time (Trouble With Triads #3) by E.M. Denning

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Trouble With Triads series: Spare Room (#1) Spare Parts (#2) Disclaimer: I received an advanced electronic review copy of this book from the author. Denning saved the best for last in her trio of unique poly romances. Once again, she also presents a new arc withinContinue reading “Review: Spare Time (Trouble With Triads #3) by E.M. Denning”

Review: Dual Surrender (Duality #2) by Kate Hawthorne

Read my review of the first book in the Duality series, Dual Destruction. Hawthorne mentioned on social media that this was a difficult book to write, and part of me worried that this book would not mesh, thematically, with the previous installment of this trilogy. It features an established couple, and their lifestyle as white-collarContinue reading “Review: Dual Surrender (Duality #2) by Kate Hawthorne”
