Review: The Virgin’s Night Out by Shiloh Walker

Review: The Virgin’s Night Out by Shiloh Walker The Virgin’s Night Out Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Gotta be honest. No one. NO ONE. writes tortured heroes like Shiloh Walker. The Virgin’s Night Out is novella-length (another short, Tempt Me, is offered with the e-book purchase, but not reviewed here); when I reached the 60% mark of the file and the story ended, I was bereft. Even during the few pages I had to spend with them, Sloane and Boone crept into my heart and I didn’t want to leave them. I mathed for y’all. The Virgin’s Night Out is around 158 pages—plan to read it one sitting, because there’s no...

Review: The Enticement by Tara Sue Me

Review: The Enticement by Tara Sue Me The Enticement Author: Tara Sue Me Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: So, I did a little backlist binge reading awhile ago. I picked up the first three titles in Tara Sue Me’s Submissive series after reading the first book in her Partners in Play series last year. The Enticement is giving me all the feels, folks. All. The. Feels. First, I want to note I feel strongly that this book can be read as a standalone. Read: even if you haven’t read the other titles in the series, you won’t be banging your head against the wall wondering what’s going on. Ms. Me does a great...

Review: Unraveled by Lorelei James

Review: Unraveled by Lorelei James Unraveled Author: Lorelei James Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Shiori and Knox. *fans self* Perfectly balanced story. Humor, D/s, and watching a relationship have *normal* (sort-of) problems and fabulous resolutions…with super hot sexy times. It felt as though I was a voyeur watching all the things going on with Shiori & Knox. The intimacy of their relationship was intense, and beautiful. One of the things that struck me about Shiori and Knox was the need that drove them both into their relationship. It was never casual for either of them from the beginning. It was planned and purposeful. Borne of Shiori’s desire for affection, and Knox’s...

Review: Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy

Review: Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy Stealing Rose Author: Monica Murphy Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: These Fowler Sisters books are like chocolate—always got room for more. Stealing Rose, the second title in the trilogy, is about the baby sister, Rose, and the thief that stole her heart, Caden. We also get to see more of Violet and Ryder, as well as Lily. For the record, I’m quickly approaching fifty. But reading Stealing Rose really took me back to my college days, a couple decades ago. Okay. Maybe I wasn’t quite as gregarious as Rose (Stop laughing. Really.). But there are a bazillion ways I did connect with her in this story....

Review: Personal Geography + Intimate Geography by Tamsen Parker

Review: Personal Geography + Intimate Geography by Tamsen Parker Personal Geography Intimate Geography Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Okay, ladies & gentlemen. These are some seriously smokin’ hot books. However, if you *just* pick up book 1, you’re going to kick yourself, or need to one-click as soon as you finish the first title. I read ‘em back-to-back, and I’m not ashamed to say I devoured them. The Compass series, of which Personal Geography & Intimate Geography are the first two titles, is purported to tell all of Cris & India’s story. This is super important to me, because as I reached the end, it *felt* like the end of their story....

Review: Heir of the Dog by Hailey Edwards

Review: Heir of the Dog by Hailey Edwards Heir of the Dog Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I don’t know what it is about these Black Dog books. I Eat. Them. Up. With engaging writing, an awesome heroine, and a hint of love story, I’m enthralled each time I open up one of them. I never know which way the story will turn out until the end. Mmmhm. A smidge of suspense and unpredictable story telling. Gotta love it. When I started reading, I thought things were kicking up a notch with Shaw. Um. Not. Thierry finds herself tangled in the politics of Faerie. There’s a new guy on the scene,...

Review + Giveaway: In His Keeping by Maya Banks

Review + Giveaway: In His Keeping by Maya Banks In His Keeping Author: Maya Banks Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I ate up this book. Literally. I would have read it in one sitting, if I’d had the time. That’s usually the case with Maya Banks’s titles, though. Especially the Slow Burn series. In His Keeping was no exception. Take a little Alpha male, a damsel-in-distress, some paranormal abilities, a dash of kidnapping and you’ve got the wild roller coaster that was In His Keeping. The action kept me riveted to this title, and looking forward to the next title in the series. What drew me into the story was the love that Ginger and...

Review: Soul Enslaved by Keri Lake

Review: Soul Enslaved by Keri Lake Soul Enslaved Author: Keri Lake Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I like to come up with hashtags for Keri Lake’s books. This was #GlommingGavin. I fell in love with this Son of Wrath in the first book of this series. His measured control. His compassion. All the little things that make me, as a reader, compelled to finish a book. At the loss of sleep. In lieu of meals. Hoping for a few minutes of ‘wait time’ so I could open up the Kindle app and read even a few more lines. First things first. This is a supremely dark paranormal urban fantasy erotic romance. Ms....

Review: Ahead in the Heat by Lorelie Brown

Review: Ahead in the Heat by Lorelie Brown Ahead in the Heat Author: Lorelie Brown Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Quickie Review. Warm weather. Rippling ocean water. A man out of his element, and a woman longing to return to hers…even though she didn’t know it. Sean and Annie’s story is one of the sweetest I’ve read in a while. Athletes have always intrigued me. From the time I entered high school, I have always appreciated a fit male form as a work of art. Athletes are artists. They sculpt their bodies to perfection. When they fail, or are injured, there’s all sorts of emotions. Reasoning, begging, and rehab. Lots and lots of rehab....

Review: For Valentine’s by Kat & Stone Bastion

Review: For Valentine’s by Kat & Stone Bastion For Valentine’s Author: Kat & Stone Bastion Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Really, this is going to be a wrap-up of the No Weddings series, which needs to be read in order. For Valentine’s is the final title, a novella, in the series. I’ve had the privilege of watching the relationship of Hannah and Cade develop over the past year. They’re real. They’re believable, and most of all, they’re honest. If you haven’t picked up the No Weddings series by Kat & Stone Bastion, you’re truly missing out on a well-crafted, humor-infused, voyeuristic look at the way an honest-to-goodness relationship evolves. I finished For Valentine’s and...
