Review: “Sanguine” by Sierra Simone

Simone packs a wallop into two short chapters in this excellent paranormal romance story. It appears pretty self-explanatory on the surface: vampire and priest meet, and sexy shenanigans ensue. However, Simone puts her own twist on how vampires work, the priest is not quite a priest, and the shenanigans are surprisingly humorous and sweet (alongContinue reading “Review: “Sanguine” by Sierra Simone”

Review: Blood Series by Brea Alepoú

More Than Blood (Book 1) This paranormal romance story includes a cast of intriguing characters and plenty of sexy bits. However, is it wrong to wish that the book had included more of the worldbuilding and plot than romance-related drama? As much as I enjoyed meeting Karter and the vampire den to whom he findsContinue reading “Review: Blood Series by Brea Alepoú”

Review: Pendulum (Kingdom of Night #1) by Joel Abernathy

I made it a goal to read more M/M books written by male-presenting authors, and this trilogy looked like a great choice that featured lots of my favorite things in the paranormal romance genre. On the plus side, this book was well-written, and it was easy enough to get swept along in the plot. However,Continue reading “Review: Pendulum (Kingdom of Night #1) by Joel Abernathy”

Review: Handsome Death by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for the full price. I am kicking myself for not reading this sooner. I have never failed to adore anything written by this author, and this might be my favorite book of hers so far. From the first page, Bauer subverts pretty muchContinue reading “Review: Handsome Death by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: No Rest for the Wicked (Immortals After Dark #3) by Kresley Cole

I adored everything about this book — except for the two main characters, who fell short in contrast to the scope of this exciting tale. Sebastian’s character arc may have been typical of alpha romance heroes when this book was first published, but it doesn’t hold up as well in 2019. He starts the bookContinue reading “Review: No Rest for the Wicked (Immortals After Dark #3) by Kresley Cole”

Review: The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1) by Kresley Cole

I started this series on the recommendation of a friend who is a romance author, and I devoured this sexy novella in a single evening. I had certain preconceptions about the two main characters based on the back-cover text, which were smashed immediately. The heroine Myst, especially, was not what I expected at all. TheContinue reading “Review: The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1) by Kresley Cole”

Review: Escaping Mortality (Escape #3) by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. The cliffhanger at the end of book 2 in this trilogy, Escaping Solitude, left me frantic. Luckily, this installment picks up mere moments from where the previous left off and continues the story without missing a beat. This trilogy of novellas will make for aContinue reading “Review: Escaping Mortality (Escape #3) by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: Escaping Solitude (Escape #2) by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. The moment I finished part one of the Escape Trilogy, Escaping Exile, I was already clamoring to the author that I needed part two right away. Of course, having completed part two, I’m begging for the conclusion immediately. While some middles of stories or trilogiesContinue reading “Review: Escaping Solitude (Escape #2) by Sara Dobie Bauer”
