Review: The Hookup By Erin McCarthy

Review: The Hookup By Erin McCarthy The Hookup Author: Erin McCarthy Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Erin McCarthy is not an entirely new author to me.  I have read and enjoyed—some more than others, several of her contributions to anthologies.  So I’m not sure why I haven’t read a full length novel from her before given that she’s a solid romance writer with multiple titles and series under her belt.  From what I have read, her writing has a certain intensity about it, but that intensity totally shines in The Hookup, the first installment in the Jordan Brothers Series. In this book, McCarthy uses her intensity to accomplish the seemingly impossible in...

Take charge. You’re not helping Jamie by being soft.” Avoiding her eyes, I nodded, keenly aware of Jamie standing less than three feet from us. With luck, he hadn’t heard her over the bleating trumpets. We stood against a retaining wall on...

Review: Scissor Kisses by Devon Monk

Review: Scissor Kisses by Devon Monk Scissor Kisses Author: Devon Monk Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Scissor Kisses is the third novella in the Ordinary Magic series.  This long awaited novella featuring Myra was only a taste of what Gikany and Una hopes is coming in the next novel.  Though it contains the wit we have come to love, the substance was light in progressing some overarching plot lines. Unfortunately, after two novellas where we see the other two Reed sisters in the midst of an HEA or at the beginning of one, we were expecting something to come out of the strange romance between Myra and the demon, Bathen....

I’d barely met him, knew nothing about him. But the way he’d looked at me that night, like he was studying me, like he could systematically pull me apart...
