Review: Spanish Lessons by Jessica Peterson

Review: Spanish Lessons by Jessica Peterson Spanish Lessons Author: Jessica Peterson Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Spanish Lessons was good read. I finished the other night and needed to let it marinate. Ms. Peterson’s voice was authentic and engaging. Overall, I enjoyed the characters—especially at the end. Part of the reason I didn’t give this title an A rating is because there’s probably a generational gap or a regional difference, and I was confused by some of the usage. For example, ‘hookup’. Darlings, I graduated from high school in 1986. When we said ‘hook up’, we meant having sexy time. I understood, by context clues and world-building this was not the case....

Review: The Flame by Christopher Rice

Review: The Flame by Christopher Rice The Flame Author: Christopher Rice Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Hey. Hey you. Fan of super sensual erotic romance? Like a little paranormal tossed in to make things interesting? Get your hiney online and one-click some of Christopher Rice’s erotic romance. Yup. He’s the son of Anne Rice, and to be honest, I like his writing better than his mom’s. So there. Chris’s first erotic romance offering is through the 1,001 Dark Nights project, a pretty cool consortium of authors constructing stories under the guise of someone taking the place of Scheherazade and having to tell the king a new story every day to save their...

It was time to change the subject. “Let’s talk about something nonserious for a change. It sounds like it’s going to be all serious all the time once we get where we’re going.” “Good point. Let’s shorten the road. What would you like to talk about?” Suddenly, I couldn’t think of...

Review: Oria’s Gambit by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: Oria’s Gambit by Jeffe Kennedy Oria’s Gambit Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: After the cliffhanger in the previous book, Lonen’s War, Gikany and Una were eager to start Oria’s Gambit.  We enjoyed it though it was a completely different feel from the previous novel. We go from a fast-paced novel filled with battles, negotiations, and confrontations to one that is a battlefront of politics and maneuverings filled with anxious waiting and debating.  Though it was still very gripping, it was a change from the pace of the previous novel.  In Oria’s Gambit, Oria and Lonen race to obtain the throne in Baran in order to protect...

Review: Can I See You Again? by Allison Morgan

Review: Can I See You Again? by Allison Morgan Can I See You Again? Author: Allison Morgan Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Can I See You Again? is a good book, but it fell short of the potential to be more. Bree Caxton is a matchmaker based in La Jolla, California.  Her expertise is in reading body language and a wistful love of falling in love. I can identify.  This is why I like contemporary romance.  Bree is good at her job, so good that she has a 98% success rate.  Business is steady and she has a debut book ready to hit the stands.  Life is good.  Her boyfriend of four years, attorney Sean...
