All They Need by Sarah Mayberry

All They Need by Sarah Mayberry

June 27, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 5

I was talking on Twitter yesterday about how books with tattooed heroes with violent tempers are frequently described as “edgy” and how it didn’t make sense to me. How can a violent construction of masculinity be “edgy” when it’s clearly the norm? Wouldn’t a straight hero who’s really into musical… Read more »

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 »

Ugly Renaissance Babies Reading Desire: “Dark Notes on Paper” – Liz has a great post on sex scenes and desire in romance and why much of it bores her. As usual, the comments are as insightful as the post. When I first discovered romance and erotica (both when I was… 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 »

Oh book. We had such a complicated relationship, you and I. Every time I thought we were working it out you tossed me another curve ball. Let’s talk about the good times first, shall we? In Yours Forever Farrah Rochon has created a small town I didn’t automatically hate. Although… Read more »

The Jade Temptress by Jeannie Lin

February 3, 2014 Historical, Reviews 0

The Jade Temptress technically has a March release date. I’ve stopped advance reviewing because people find it annoying, but Harlequin has a history of early release in it’s e-store and I wanted to talk about something I liked for a change. We’ll keep it spoiler free. A few pages in to The… 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 »
