September 10, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 0

The cover of this book jumped out at me when I was browsing NetGalley one afternoon earlier this summer. Something about the bubblegum pink background mixed with that kinda butch black model caught my eye and made me read the blurb. When I saw that it took place in New… Read more »

I was swayed to give this fantasy trilogy a try when I learned that one of the books would have a trans woman pov character. The numerous characters of colour, including several pov characters, were an added bonus. The books are written in third person limited voice. The one character… Read more »

May 5, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 8

Today’s guest review comes from Jessica at Read React Review. Enjoy! Forever’s Promise is the fourth book in Rochon’s Bayou Dreams series, set in small town Louisiana. I can’t really judge, but the setting felt authentic, not surprisingly since Rochon is a native of Louisiana. I’m familiar, in personal terms,… Read more »
