Review + Blog Tour: Looking for Group by Alexis Hall

Review + Blog Tour: Looking for Group by Alexis Hall Looking for Group Author: Alexis Hall Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Beginning with what is essentially a “job listing” in a fictional MMO, Looking for Group is one of the most unique and fun stories about falling in love that I’ve had the pleasure of reading in a very long time. Told exclusively from Drew’s perspective, it’s a noteworthy lesson, not only about accepting others for who they are, but being honest with ourselves, as well. There’s actually much more to it than that, but it’s better to just read it firsthand. One of the most fascinating things about Looking for Group is what felt like...

Review: Lessons in Gravity by Jessica Peterson

Review: Lessons in Gravity by Jessica Peterson Lessons in Gravity Author: Jessica Peterson Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Everyone deserves love. Everyone. No one can make you feel anything unless you let them. This feeling of empowerment was my take-away from Lessons in Gravity. The second title in Jessica Petersons’s Study Abroad series is packed with even more of the feels than the first. Although reading the first book isn’t necessary to become immersed in this storyline, it’s recommended only because the backstory of the secondary characters in the title make it that much more poignant. While we get to see more of Viv & Rafa, as well as Laura and her hot...

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...
