Loving Laney by Harmony Evans

Loving Laney by Harmony Evans

June 4, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 0

When I went to RT, the registration packet included a USB stick containing something like 600+ ebooks. So of course when I got home I went on NetGalley to look for books to request. (I might have a problem. /shrug) I’d read and enjoyed Evans before and the blurb for… Read more »

Shadows of Damascus by Lilas Taha

Shadows of Damascus by Lilas Taha

May 9, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 3

Today we have a guest review from Anu K. You can find her on Twitter. Enjoy! Bullet wounds, torture and oppression aren’t the only things that keep a man—or a woman—from being whole. Debt. Honor. Pain. Solitude. These are things wounded war veteran Adam Wegener knows all about. Love—now, that… Read more »

Free Fall by Carolyn Jewel

Free Fall by Carolyn Jewel

April 4, 2014 Paranormal, Reviews 7

Pity the poor novella that is meant to hook readers into a series. It’s judged not only on it’s own merits, but also on it’s ability to reduce a complex world into an appetizing bite. One misstep on either side and the reader is ready to bury it. With that… Read more »

Dirty Laundry by Heidi Cullinan

Dirty Laundry by Heidi Cullinan

February 24, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2

One night on Twitter I asked people to let me know about books they knew dealt with disability and/or had PoC characters because it’s not easy to search for that on NetGalley or retailer sites. Heidi Cullinan tweeted me to suggest two of her books as fitting the bill, then… Read more »

Moonstruck Madness by Laurie McBain

Moonstruck Madness by Laurie McBain

February 21, 2014 Historical, Reviews 4

Laurie McBain is an author  often underrepresented in casual histories of the genre. Moonstruck Madness did massive business. I decided to revisit Moonstruck Madness because it was the book I remembered the least. MM is a glorious train wreck of domestic violence and kitchen sink plotting. No wonder I forgot most of… Read more »

In Her Corner by Vicki Essex

In Her Corner by Vicki Essex

February 7, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2

I enjoyed Essex’s 2013 release, Back to the Good Fortune Diner, so when Brie tweeted about In Her Corner earlier this week it didn’t take much for me to decide to buy the book. I’m not the biggest fan of romances featuring MMA fighters as it’s hard to reconcile HEA… Read more »

Short Soup by Coleen Kwan

Short Soup by Coleen Kwan

December 4, 2013 Contemporary, Reviews 3

No hard sell was needed to get me to pick up this novella. I adore the friends-to-lovers trope to begin with and an Asian hero and heroine in an Australian story written by an Asian author? Yes, please. This is exactly the kind of book I want to see more… Read more »

The Little Things by Jay Northcote

The Little Things by Jay Northcote

November 25, 2013 Contemporary, Reviews 1

Disclaimer: The author is a friend and that has somewhat tempered my expectations. However, this book has a plot too, not just sex. Also, there’s a spoiler in this review. Joel Mason is a teacher, a co-parent to his three-year-old daughter, and dating a younger man, Dan. Then Evie’s mother… Read more »
