Review: Sunset Park by Santino Hassell

Review: Sunset Park by Santino Hassell Sunset Park Author: Santino Hassell Reviewer: B. Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It’s not an exaggeration to say that I’ve been waiting for Sunset Park since I turned the last page of the inaugural novel of the Five Boroughs series, Sutphin Boulevard. The latter marked the beginning of what has, so far, been an outstanding couple of stories, and I was thrilled when the sequel not only lived up to my expectations, but blew them out of the water entirely. Raymond and David may have carved out a place for themselves in the first story, but in Sunset Park, they handily and conclusively outshone everyone else around them....

Review + Blog Tour: Part & Parcel by Abigail Roux

Review + Blog Tour: Part & Parcel by Abigail Roux Part & Parcel Author: Abigail Roux Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: After months of concern over so many beloved characters, and successfully avoiding all of the spoilers I possibly could, I was very pleased to discover that Part & Parcel ended up being even more wonderful than I had anticipated. Nick O’Flaherty and Kelly Abbott have been favorites of mine for ages, and the introduction of the Sidewinder stories helped ease the distress that accompanied the ending of the Cut & Run series, which I have always loved tremendously. Kelly and Nick are absolutely perfect for each other, and, while I’ve always wanted them to be...

Review: Stranded by HelenKay Dimon

Review: Stranded by HelenKay Dimon Stranded Author: HelenKay Dimon Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: As a trained assassin, Kyle Cabe thought he knew a thing or two about betrayal. But, getting shot and left for dead by the man he should have been able to trust more than anyone else took that awareness to an entirely different level. Now, Cabe’s ready to forget the past and start over, or so he tells himself—as soon as he finishes this one last job. Too bad his heart isn’t so easily convinced. Brax Hughes had always known that his plan to save Cabe during his last assignment would cost him dearly, but he’d never...

Review: Found at the Library by Christi Snow

Review: Found at the Library by Christi Snow Found at the Library Author: Christi Snow Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Writing science-fiction novels might keep him mostly single, but that dedication has brought Robert McIntyre a great deal of success. He’s a little self-absorbed, maybe, but, when his muse is talking, and the deadlines are looming, he figures it’s to be expected. But, when he gets the chance to redeem himself after a bad first impression, he falls for the gorgeous man who’s upended his world more than he ever thought possible. If only holding on to him could be so easy. After many years of loving the books that his dyslexia prevented him...

Review: A Silver Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear

Review: A Silver Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear A Silver Wolf Christmas Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Laurel MacTire never considered joining a large wolf pack with her two sisters until moving to Silver Town under the pretense of renovating the derelict hotel there. But, with a shortage of female wolves in the pack, the entire town had gone out of their way to convince she and her sisters to stay—one frustratingly intriguing male wolf, in particular. It would be the perfect place to settle down, if only they didn’t suspect that at least one the town’s residents might have been involved in the disappearance of their beloved aunt fifty years...

Review: Lessons for Sleeping Dogs by Charlie Cochrane

Review: Lessons for Sleeping Dogs by Charlie Cochrane Lessons for Sleeping Dogs Author: Charlie Cochrane Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: While I was excited to have the opportunity to review a Cambridge Fellows mystery, I was also worried that my lack of familiarity with the series might impact my ability to lose myself in the story. Happily, that wasn’t the case at all, although I enjoyed the relationship between the two main characters a great deal and would like to read all the previous stories just to witness its evolution from the beginning. While there are plenty of tender moments between Jonty and Orlando, Lessons for Sleeping Dogs is well balanced throughout, and the...

Review: Shadows at Midnight by Amanda Bonilla

Review: Shadows at Midnight by Amanda Bonilla Shadows at Midnight Author: Amanda Bonilla Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Though I’ve tried to keep this review as spoiler-free as possible, there were a couple of things that I would have appreciated knowing before I began reading Shadows at Midnight. What Darian goes through in the beginning of the story is torture. Long, graphically detailed torture that is also a kind of mental violation. But, as upsetting as Darian’s experience was, I think what Xander is subjected to is even more disturbing. Although I don’t care much for him, I believe it should be noted that what happens to him is nothing short of rape...
