Kiss Across Swords - Kiss Across Time Series, #2

Very well rendered with just the right amount of historical detail for fun without sinking too much into the horrors and barbarism of times past. I am uncertain about how much I believe in the way time works in Cooper-Posey's world, but tha...

4-Ever Theirs - Four to Score

...now looking forward to re-reading some of Jayne Rylon's previous stuff because this really just didn't do it for me. For one, the interactions and the romance just wasn't sufficiently there. She has this wonderful relationship with each...

Stealing the Bachelor - Stealing the Heart, #3

I wavered a lot between the 2.5 and the 3 and it ended up being the 2.5 because I honestly didn't manage to get through the book. I skimmed most of it just to find out what happened and to make sure it really wasn't getting any better. For...

Stars

Edge of Obsession

Pure girl porn, otherwise known as sheer id-fic. And I mean that in the best way possible. Helena is strong, smart, has plans, is courageous without being stupid about it and knows when to bend. Tyr is hot, sexually dominant, knows what he...

Stars

Deep Water - Olympic Cove, #3

Nicola Cameron took on some pretty heavy stuff in this story and managed to wrangle a believable HEA out of it. A pretty good HEA, to be fair. Impressive, I'd say, considering I'm about to warn of Greek Gods Behaving Badly: rape/infidelity/...

The Good, the Bad, and the Vampire - Dead in the City, #4

I didn't fall in love with this story the way I was expecting to. I was expecting a bit more sass, more fire and kick-ass abilities from Trixie and I was looking forward to a smooth-talking, sweet with a bit of bite cowboy and lots of fun a...

Dukes Prefer Blondes - The Dressmakers Series, #4

A bit of Sherlock Holmes meets ...well, meets cute? If you've ever wanted to see the indomitable Holmes brought to heel by emotions and tamed to a velvet hand, you just might enjoy this. I thoroughly enjoyed this story - I had a foolish gri...

5 Stars

Challenging Saber - The Alliance, #4

Spirited girl with a fighting spirit. A gentle but fierce warrior. A love that has been there forever. Commitment to a love despite tragedy and loss. On paper, all of these things sounded like they should combine to create a book that would...

The Fix Up - First Impressions

Funny and sexy and adorkable. I liked this story - I'm always fond of a strong woman and a guy who's hyper-intelligent and I love to see when sparks fly between two well-matched people and The Fix Up definitely delivers. What I really appre...

Awaited - Wasteland #2

I really enjoyed this book - more than I expected to, actually. I expected something a bit more fluffy (not that fluffy is bad), but this was much grittier than I expected (in a good way). There's sacrifice and decisions to be made, and non...

Redeeming the Earl - Perfect Series Companion, #3

I was a bit conflicted about this book. There's the usual trope of the heroine trusting the hero on sight despite his tarnished name and loving him anyway, but it was sweetly done and for someone who specialized in unearthing the truth, I c...

3 Stars

Empress of Storms - Two Thrones Book 1

Flawless and stunning - Empress of Storms has put Nicola M. Cameron on my must-read list. I'll admit, this story has many of my favorite elements: royal marriage of convenience, unrequited love that ends up being ...well, requited, politics...

5 Stars

Steal Me - New York's Finest, #2

So we have the classic grumpy scowly cop who falls for someone completely inappropriate case-wise (when do they ever not, in cop romances?) and shenanigans ensue. Oh, and throw in the fact that the heroine is a struggling waitress writing a...

Veiled Magic

Veiled Magic is definitely worth picking up. The story is tightly written with wonderful characterization and an intriguing plot. Blake introduces the reader to a fascinating world with interesting rules and manages to do it without a singl...

The Queen's Flight - Emerging Queens

Rollicking good fun with a generous side of kick-ass. I adored seeing Viola grow into her own as a dragon queen - her badassness (yeah, totally a word) was hysterically funny, the way the three heads never seemed to agree was a hoot, and I...

Once Upon a Power Play - Risky Business, #2

Oodles of fun with sassy, sexy banter and two intelligent adults who aren't quite sure what to do with each other -- other than bang each other into next week, that is. I really liked that Ryan isn't portrayed as the stereotypical athlete h...

Dream Knight

Dream Knight is a story a tortured, noble hero and his feisty, foisted-upon-him wife. It has just enough witchery to spice things up without venturing into paranormal. So there was a lot less magic than I expected from the blurb. Really, al...

For The Win - Gaming The System, #4

Accidentally leaked sex video, cosplay, gaming geeks equals lots of steamy fun, right? Unfortunately, not quite. I was expecting something a little more light-hearted, a little more fun, and a little more ...romantic. What I actually got wa...

The Bloodline War - The Community Series, #1

The Bloodline War wasn't quite what I expected - I was anticipating something a little more frothy and a little more tropey and somewhat more light-hearted. Not quite so and kudos for it. Tappan actually takes a good hard look at the much l...

Seven Nights to Surrender - Art of Passion , #1

Playboy billionaire running away from himself trying to drown himself in pretty tourists for the ultimate in disposable relationships meets damaged artist struggling to find herself - hi there, trope city. To be honest, I didn't have super...

His Work Of Art - Hot & Nerdy Book 4

I had a good time following Reese and Adam as they worked together to create a piece of art and a shared love. Schroeder did a great job anchoring the story in the details of fandom without ever moving into roll-your-eyes territory. This is...

Seducing the Rake - Cursed Treasure Book 3

I love a good amnesia-to-love story, but this story sort of fell short of the mark. Unfortunate, because it was highly enjoyable otherwise. The main problem is that the story feels like it cuts short right when it should be getting interest...

Stars

The Devil's a Werewolf - Seven Brides for Seven Shifters, #2

The blurb sounds like all fun and games, but the reality reads a bit more like a cross between a social justice crusader's blog and a disappointed shifter fan's denouncement of shifter mating tropes along with a helping of hypocrisy. There...

Probabilities - Fierce Hearts, #4

The "geek" and the "bubbly" schoolteacher learning to move beyond their self-perceived limitations and past traumas to find love amidst fire, explosions, and various other baddies being, well, baddies. Sound like fun? Except, it’s not reall...

Alpha

Boy is responsible for death of girl's family; girl hunts for boy and finds boy; chaos hits the fan, as per usual, and then we get our happily ever after with a side of kinky sex. I did enjoy this book - I appreciated that there wasn't the...

Blue and Alluring - Tales of the Citadel Book 49

Viola Grace's talent for fantastical and wonderful ideas are brilliantly showcased in this story. The notion of a woman who is made of mist and who makes her living by altering other people, just as she can alter herself, is intriguing and...

True Claim - The Sigma Menace, #3

True Claim has put Marie Johnston on the list of authors-to-watch, for me. It strikes a great balance of romance; friendship, family, and intrigue, without losing a step. Benji and Spencer are the focus, as is proper, but there's also this...

All of Me

So. I thought the boys were really sweet together and I liked the voice and setting and everything... but it never quite really gelled together for me. Mostly because it was one of those "big misunderstanding because no one bothered to find...

Even Villains Fall in Love - Heroes and Villains, #1

This was a sweet and funny story and it's a great choice for a fast and light read. I enjoyed the idea of superheroes having lives and families outside of their hero-ing. I also thought that the idea of a super villain and a super hero gett...

More Than Words

The story started out with an enjoyable premise -- with the author being dropped into her own story. It was interesting to see how Kylie dealt with her errant love interest, Milo. Or rather, her heroine's love interest. The mystery of who t...

The Highest Tide - Eden Series, #4

I truly enjoyed this story about Jason and Lera. Perera strikes a very good balance between fantasy and realism in her world--not so gritty so that it gets depressing, but not so dreary that a happy ending seems impossible. However, I do th...

The Mermaid's Sanctuary - The Hunter's Series, #2

I couldn't get into this book enough to want to finish it. It felt hastily written, with a lot of telling and little showing, and the characters seemed one-dimensional. It didn't help that this is part of a series and it doesn't stand alone...

One Hot Fairy Tale

I thought the premise in Anne Kane's One Hot Fairy Tale was interesting, but I don't feel that the execution lived up to it and there were a lot of head-tilt moments. The main kicker though, was that I didn't really buy Rhiannon and Jack's...

All's Fair - It's All Greek To Me, #1

I really enjoyed this take on Greek mythology, but I felt like it was a bit rushed throughout and it sometimes verged on the edge of tipping from fun-campy to not-fun-campy. Davon Fury, God of War, Cassandra Cupid, Aris Cupid and Khrystal C...

Revenge in Vein - The Complete Series

I enjoyed this collection, which came as a bit of a surprise -- I don't usually like revenge-fic. Either the original slight was heinous enough that it makes it hard to see the two together, or it was something petty that has me rolling my...

Rusalka - A romantic fairy tale

I have to admit, I have a soft spot for fairy-tale retellings. However, this one is really, really good. I've never been fond of the way The Little Mermaid ended in the traditional story, so I was very pleased to see Jennifer's take on it....

Her Cyborg Lover

I really enjoyed this story with Natalie and Jebediah -- I especially appreciate how Anne Kane flipped the usual trope of how a woman who is at the top of her game meets a man who can out-fly her. Natalie definitely leaves Jebediah in the d...

Jaguar in the Sun - Unveiled Seductions, #4

Guarded Heart

Darkest Ecstasy

Where to even start... Okay, so the sex was pretty hot. Not exactly my cuppa tea, but hey, I figure it'd do it for some other person. That said -- the rest of the story just had me shaking my head. --- (Mini Spoiler) Part of the problem was...

Nareen of the Draca - Daughters of Draca, #3

Nareen of the Draca is short, sweet and fluffy. Reading this is not a bad way to while away some spare time, but this story is definitely more cotton candy than gummi bear. Amusing enough, but I felt like things overall felt rushed and the...

Angel's Power - Angel Shifters #2

I feel like this book suffers from "intriguing premise, lackluster execution" -- the worldbuilding is tenuous, the character development iffy and the conflict feels very flimsy. I'm not quite sure how the angelic society works, not sure wha...
