Review: Forbidden: King (The Four #4) by Sloane Kennedy

This collection of excellent spin-offs from Kennedy’s amazing Protectors series comes full circle as we finally get the story of the last brother, King, and his “forbidden” romance with his (non-biological) nephew Gio. Years have passed since Gio’s rescue, but King has kept himself absent for most of them after doing all he can toContinue reading “Review: Forbidden: King (The Four #4) by Sloane Kennedy”

Review: What We May Be by Layla Reyne

I love a good poly romance, and I love a good mystery, so when this one came highly recommended by fellow readers, I knew I had to give it a shot. Reyne immediately upended my expectations of this story by weaving a second-chance element into the dynamic between her three extraordinary heroes rather than throwingContinue reading “Review: What We May Be by Layla Reyne”

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: 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”

Review: White House Men Series by Nora Phoenix

This post includes reviews of the currently available books in the White House Men series: Press (#1) Friends (#2) Click (#3) Serve (#4) Care (#5) Puzzle (#6) Press (Book 1) This was the first Nora Phoenix title I picked up a few months ago, and at the time, I read the first 10 percent andContinue reading “Review: White House Men Series by Nora Phoenix”

Review: Auctioned Series by Cara Dee

This post includes reviews of all the books in the Auctioned series: Auctioned (#1) Stranded (#2) Deserted (#3) The Job (#3.5) Played (#4) Finished (#5) Auctioned (Book 1) Even though I’ve loved everything I’ve read by this author, I put off reading this book because I knew it would be difficult. Now that I’ve finishedContinue reading “Review: Auctioned Series by Cara Dee”

Review: Inferno Series by J. R. Gray

Clouded Hell (Book 1) This book is not a dark romance, though it gets pretty dark at times. Not because of the kinks between the main characters, but simply because of the worlds of organized crime and underground fighting they’re involved with. It’s immediately clear, however, that Remi and Dante are anti-heroes rather than villains,Continue reading “Review: Inferno Series by J. R. Gray”

Review: The Four Series by Sloane Kennedy

This review includes the books currently available in The Four series: Forgotten: Luca (#1) Foreseen: Lex (#2) Forgiven: Con (#3) Forgotten: Luca (Book 1) This book can be read as a stand-alone story, but it works best in the context of two previous novels by Kennedy: Atonement (Protectors #6) and Unbroken (Protectors #12). Thematically, thisContinue reading “Review: The Four Series by Sloane Kennedy”

Review: High Lonesome by Tanya Chris

Sometimes I read books despite the trigger warnings at the end of the back-cover blurb. In this case, I picked this book because of one of the trigger warnings. I have a professional interest in HIV due to my day job, and I’m always interested in seeing how HIV and HIV prevention are addressed inContinue reading “Review: High Lonesome by Tanya Chris”
