Ever After - Transplanted Tales

I have to admit that I'm developing a serious addiction to Kate Serine's world building and writing. Each one of these books keeps getting better than the last and exceeding my expectations. Does the reader want well rounded characterizatio...

Her Commander - Orion Series Book 2

I love a good sci fi romance, so I was looking forward to getting my teeth into this book. It is understandable that a Captain couldn’t fraternize or worse with his crew members and still command respect. What I didn’t like about Craig’s re...

Silver - Sexy Shifter Fairytale Romances, #5

As a reader, I really wanted to know the true motivation behind a big sister, Scarlet who supposedly feels so protective of her younger sister, Silver, that she makes out with Silver's boyfriends to show how worthless they are. How Silver c...

A Wife for the Future - The Wikomsette, #2

I very much enjoyed the original Wikomsette book but this book surpassed it, I loved that Ashling was so mature in her attitude, it made her infinitely likable, she could have been bratty and immature especially as her whole upbringing was...

Clean Break

I always enjoy a book that starts off in such a way that as a reader I have no idea where exactly the story will take me. Clean Break was that for me. A clean break from what exactly? I loved Lane's character and wondered if the very myster...

Red - Transplanted Tales

Little Red Riding Hood is one of my favorite fairytales. Not many authors have managed to do justice to updating this tale in my opinion but this is one of the good ones. The world building is superb and the characters of Red and Nate Grimm...

Wolf Admirer - Paranormal Shadows Book 2

Poor characterization meant that not a single character behaved in way that was believable. The flaws remained in order to keep the poorly thought out plot flowing. This book is a perfect example of poor writing skills.

Mystic's Touch

I love a good fantasy novel and this one had a really intriguing plot. The king dies unexpectedly which means that his son, Prince Ceros has to be called back from his training abroad, but clearly someone is up to no good because the Prince...

Last Minion Standing

An ass kicking half demonic bounty hunter shouldn't be saddled with a moniker like Sally. With her skills for finding prey and taking care of herself in the bargain, it's no wonder that she has such a reputation for getting the job done. So...

The Spaniard’s baby is a romance that gives us two people who want opposing things. Bella the widow of Rafe’s former best friend wants a baby. Rafe wants Bella, but knowing that being with Bella, means commitment and babies is a deal breake...

The Turn of the Card - Gambling on Love Book 1

I was drawn to this futuristic novel because of its unusual premise, the heroine being sold based on a card game by her own father. I really liked Kiernan and how the author has him and his men sweep in and save the day for Jessica and the...

Red's Wolf - Grimm Woods, #1

Little Red Riding Hood is one of my favorite fairy tales so I was very interested to see if it lived up to it's promise. I found this to be a very enjoyable book, and a thoroughly modern romance with just a nod to Little Red and her wolf. W...

Resisting the Alpha - Love Spell, #3

I would have liked this book more if there had actually been some resisting going on. I wanted to see some feisty interaction - all the reader got was lot of verbal protestations from the main female character, though she couldn't get her k...

Rumpled Between the Sheets - Tales from Beowulf Hollow, #2

I love the idea of reinventing the classic Grimm brothers’ fairytales. Unfortunately this rendering of Rumplestilskin gave us an unlikable, tortured bad guy instead of a sexy anti-hero. I found it hard to fathom how Mary came to like him, n...

A Will for Love

As a reader I could not see why Lanya should have given Mikael the time of day. Any explanation for breaking her heart would not have been sufficient to allow her to forgive him. So for this reason I could not finish the book.

Claimed by a Demon King - Eternal Mates, #2

Shades Of Obsession

I could not get pass the verbose style of writing. Instead of being wonderfully descriptive and drawing the reader into the story, the writing style did the exact opposite and put me off both the main protagonist and the novel.

Bearded for Her Pleasure - VaVa Boomers

Sovereign's Choice

I have enjoyed all of this author's WINDVERSE novels. Strangely, I just couldn't get into this one and be motivated to care about the characters. This is one of the rare books that I could not finish.

His Trouble in Tallulah - In the Line of Duty, #2

This romance was surprisingly sexier than I thought it would be. It was a nice enough romance ticked all the boxes without having that omph, that makes a book one that you read again and again. Overall this is a 3 out of 5 star read for me.

Knotted - Terran Times Second Wave

Wild Craving - Canyon Creek Wolves, #1
