DNF Review: Broken by Traci L. Slatton

DNF Review: Broken by Traci L. Slatton Broken Author: Traci Slatton Reviewer: Una Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: Broken is the latest release by Traci Slatton. I was intrigued by the premise, but unfortunately I did not care for the book.  Between the contrast of flowery, romantic language and the atrocities of this time period, along with the overt sexual scenes and innuendoes side-by-side with political/historical discussions, I was never able to get into the story and ended up not finishing it. The novel is told from the point of view of the fallen angel Aria.  Since it is told in first person present, I felt as if I was being told what was going...

I was trapped between the marble podium and his big body. I looked up at him and couldn’t stop myself from admiring how good his suit looked on him up close. God, he was big… I shook my head in frustration with myself. I really...

Review: The Midnight Queen by Sylvia Izzo Hunter

Review: The Midnight Queen by Sylvia Izzo Hunter The Midnight Queen Author: Sylvia Izzo Hunter Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: The Midnight Queen is like a roller coaster ride, the first climb seems long, but then once the world is established and the characters are in place, the rest is gripping and wonderful.  I think anyone who enjoys fantasy blended with a slowly burning romance in a historical setting will enjoy this new series, Noctis Magicae. I think what gave this novel a slow start was my adjustment to the language.  The language fits the historical setting of the novel, and since I have been reading a more modern novel, I needed time to...

Review: Rogue’s Paradise by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: Rogue’s Paradise by Jeffe Kennedy Rogue’s Paradise Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Reading The Mark of Tala by Jeffe Kennedy, piqued my interest in her writing, so I looked up her other books and found the Covenant of Thorns trilogy.  It sounded intriguing so I bought the first two books and inhaled them and requested for review this, the third title.  I am happy to state, I also inhaled Rogue’s Paradise.  It was an exciting, passionate and thrilling ending to this mysterious and enchanting journey. The story is told from Gwynn’s perspective and it is a bit like Alice down the rabbit hole.  Over the course of the...

She was used to hiding and being patient. She knew how to deal with the anxiety that came from the...
