Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders Under Her Skin Author: Adriana Anders Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Here’s what I know after reading Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders. Gimme. More. Thoughtful, well-developed characters with a wonderfully paced arc drove me through the entire book. I loved Uma. For reasons. Um. And this one needs a trigger warning for domestic abuse—mostly the verbal/emotional kind, but there’s physical too. And that b@stard was twisted. But…she is fierce, feisty, and is going to be a difficult character to forget. I loved Ivan because he’s not the typical alpha male we traditionally see in contemporary romance. As his story unraveled, I was increasingly drawn into...

Author Guest Post: Tiffany Shand (Amaranthine Chronicles Boxed Set)

Author Guest Post: Tiffany Shand (Amaranthine Chronicles Boxed Set) Please welcome Tiffany Shand back to That’s What I’m Talking About. She’s here celebrating the release of her Amaranthine Chronicles Boxed Set with a special Valentine’s Day treat. Kaylan and Elijah’s Valentine’s Day Kaylan landed on the bridge. Elijah’s message had been urgent. She scanned the rest of the bridge but there was no sign of anything. No drone of transpos, no sign of any golden eyes shifters stalking about. She let out a breath, sheathed her knives and brushed her long red hair off her face. It’d been a long night already. Elijah, where are you? she asked in thought. Strange, she couldn’t sense him. Her heart started...

Review: Hard Wired by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell

Review: Hard Wired by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell Hard Wired Author: Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell Reviewer: B. Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: How often are words our greatest enemy? The ones we ought to say, but don’t. The ones we shouldn’t say that come screaming out of us, unfiltered and angry, when silence would be better. And, the ones that might make all the difference in the world, if only we could be brave enough to speak. Jesse Garvy and Ian Larsen, the two main characters in Hard Wired, by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell, seem to run the gamut. As has been the case with the previous titles in the Cyberlove series, I absolutely...

Indina tracked a water droplet that traveled down his torso to the smattering of curly hair that trailed from his bellybutton to below the...

Review: Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles

Review: Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles Seeking Mr. Wrong Author: Natalie Charles Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Seeking Mr. Wrong is a book for anyone who reads a lot (too much) contemporary romance.  Readers will be able to identify all the markers they expect, but will love the acknowledgement of everything that annoys them.  Cute and sweet Lettie Osbourne writes children’s books about manners.  Her publisher gets sold to an outfit that specializes in erotica while she still has one book left on her contract and the advance is long gone.  To fulfill her obligation, she takes on the challenge of writing in the new-to-her genre.

Interview + Review: Embers by Kate Sherwood

Interview + Review: Embers by Kate Sherwood Embers Author: Kate Sherwood Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Now that he’s temporarily relocated back home to Mosely, Montana, Jericho Crewe has a lot to sort out. Between working for his old friend and former lover at the sheriff’s office, dealing with the family he didn’t know he had, and recovering from a recent gunshot wound, he’s been busy. His inability to keep his mind off his other former lover, Wade Granger, isn’t helping matters, either—especially when buildings start exploding and bodies begin turning up. While I liked this story very much, I did have a little more difficulty connecting with Jericho. Having been a patrol...

I glance up from the muddy depths of my stout and notice a woman standing at the bar while the publican pulls a pint for another customer. Her fingers drum the aged wood—the only indication that she might be impatient for the man to get on with it and serve her. She’s dressed in typical country fare: brown corduroy jeans, beige Fair Isle sweater,...
