The Hidden Blade by Sherry Thomas

The Hidden Blade by Sherry Thomas

July 29, 2014 Historical, Reviews 1

Strictly speaking, The Hidden Blade is not a romance. Sherry Thomas has put out the world’s longest prologue and I couldn’t be happier about it. If I’d had My Beautiful Enemy I’d have started reading it the second I finished The Hidden Blade. (Since it was 4:20 in the morning mistakes… Read more »

Two-For-One BWAM Review

March 19, 2014 Contemporary, Historical, Reviews 8

In the last week I ended up reading two BWAM! (Black woman/Asian man. thank Solace Ames for putting this abbreviation into my head)  romances so I figured I’d review them in one post before my ADHD gets the best for me and erases both stories from my long term memory!… Read more »
