Fast Forward by Juliet Madison

Fast Forward by Juliet Madison

November 13, 2013 Contemporary, Reviews 1

While it had a great premise finishing this book was an absolute slog. Fast Forward is meant for the relative who sends you life affirming cartoons about aging as she sips from her Maxine mug. I wanted Big and I got Freaky Friday. Juliet Madison gives us no one to root for…. Read more »

A Dream Defiant by Susanna Fraser

November 11, 2013 Historical, Reviews 7

I picked this one up a while ago based on the unusual pairing for a regency, and then promptly forgot about it since my TBR is out of control. When I was ranting again on Twitter about how hard it is to find romance with POC characters, someone brought it… Read more »

The Sinful Art of Revenge by Maya Blake

The Sinful Art of Revenge by Maya Blake

October 28, 2013 Contemporary, Reviews 7

I have a complicated relationship with Harlequin Presents. On the one hand, they’re a seductive fantasy, like a contemporary fairy tale. They take place in a world where wealth and privilege have made it so the only challenges left to the characters are the interpersonal. Everything external drops away to… Read more »
