Review: Grim Shadows by Jenn Bennett

Review: Grim Shadows by Jenn Bennett Grim Shadows Author: Jenn Bennett Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Having truly enjoyed the first story in the Roaring Twenties series, Bitter Spirits, I was both excited and a little anxious about the second novel, Grim Shadows. As it turns out, I liked it just as much. This time, we get to know the younger Magnusson brother, Lowe, who’s taken his older brother’s knack for illegal activities in a different direction by forging (not entirely) lawfully obtained Egyptian antiquities and passing them off as originals to various interested parties. In addition to bringing back the Magnusson clan, we’re also introduced to Hadley Bacall, an “oddball” museum...

Review: Hostile Ground by Aleksandr Voinov & L.A. Witt

Review: Hostile Ground by Aleksandr Voinov & L.A. Witt Hostile Ground Author: Aleksandr Voinov, L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Mahir Hussain thought he knew how far he was willing go to bring down the criminal who’d ordered the deaths of three other undercover officers. What he hadn’t counted on was the dangerous attraction he can’t shake for the head of security who might be just as inclined to shoot him as work with him. But, Mahir soon realizes that things aren’t as they seem, and it quickly becomes apparent that solving the case could cost more than he’s prepared to give. I really liked this story, and stayed up way too late for...

Review & Giveaway: Daylight Again by SE Jakes

Review & Giveaway: Daylight Again by SE Jakes Daylight Again Author: SE Jakes Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: The Hell or High Water series is one of those that I liked a lot from the very beginning, but I’ve since become somewhat obsessed with. Prophet and Tommy are incredible characters, both of them tortured, scarred men who’ve never held much hope for themselves, or anything else, really, until they met each other. If Long Time Gone, the previous story in the series, was about Tom dealing with his demons, then Daylight Again is Prophet’s turn. I absolutely love Tommy and Prophet. Watching them evolve from being solitary warriors who always insisted on taking care...

Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Lonely, but content with his life as a ferryman for a lush, tropical resort, Leo Santos only has one real regret: the college boyfriend he left behind when he returned to Puerto Rico to care for his ailing father. Skyler Macy never got over the sexy history major who broke his heart, but with a push from his sister, and some help from the 1Night Stand dating service, he’s ready to try to love again. One thing that’s certain, though, is that if Madam Eve becomes involved, miraculous things are bound to happen, and these two...

Review: Straight Shooter by Heidi Belleau

Review: Straight Shooter by Heidi Belleau Straight Shooter Author: Heidi Belleau Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Austin Puett is straight. He has to be, right? He plays on his college hockey team, can take a hit with the best of them, and is even next in line to be alternate captain. There’s no room in the game for anyone who’s not one hundred percent heterosexual. His life would be great if only he wasn’t about to be kicked out of his house and lose his job for being intolerant of his flamboyant roommate. And, if all the homophobic trash talking in the locker room didn’t turn him on so much. Each story...

Review: Penance by Ann Mayburn

Review: Penance by Ann Mayburn Penance Author: Ann Mayburn  Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I have been eagerly awaiting Penance since finishing its predecessor, Still, last spring, and I’m happy to say that was everything I’d hoped for and more. Beginning with a heartfelt note from the author about the importance of honesty and self-acceptance, Michelle and Wyatt’s story picks up with a trip back to Michelle’s hometown of Chicago, and a closer look at the history that has shaped her to this point. Michelle has become an even more complex character in this story, and while I expected there to be some dark days for Michelle and Wyatt, I was...
