Review + Giveaway: How the Cookie Crumbles by Jaime Samms

Review + Giveaway: How the Cookie Crumbles by Jaime Samms How the Cookie Crumbles Author: Jaime Samms Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Having survived an adolescence filled with loss and uncertainty, Frederick Jackson thought he’d seen his share of heartache. But, being betrayed by the man he’d grown to care for—along with getting cheated out of a well-earned win on a popular cooking show—proved him wrong. Running away to build his dream in the small town of Bluewater Bay seemed like a great idea. At least, until his past not only catches up with him, but moves in across the street. Blaire Caruthers might have been raised by a domineering, unscrupulous father, but now all he...

Review: Mastered by Maya Banks

Review: Mastered by Maya Banks Mastered Author: Maya Banks Reviewer: VampBard Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: It’s always interesting to pick up a new book, new series by an author I’ve read and love. Much like my #dayjob, it’s a new adventure every day. I never know what I’m going to get, and while I’ve adored stuff I’ve read in the past, sometimes I just can’t get out of there fast enough. Sometimes I think, “Oh, maybe things will turn around.” Sometimes that doesn’t happen, and that was the case for me, reading Mastered by Maya Banks. What I liked was the world-building. The Enforcers is a new series by Ms. Banks, and...

Review: Unabashed by Sasha White

Review: Unabashed by Sasha White Unabashed Author: Sasha White Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Note about the series order: After completing Unabashed, the author realized that it is actually the second story in the series, although it was written and released third. It is the continuing story of Ronnie and Ian, which started in the first book, Unfettered. Additionally, this story was originally released as a short novella in the Every Which Way anthology. It has been reworked and lengthened for this release. We originally met mechanic Ronnie and computer geek Ian in the first Overwatch story, Unfettered. The pair grew up together, but never explored the potential sparks that...

Review: Craving Flight by Tamsen Parker

Review: Craving Flight by Tamsen Parker Craving Flight Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I *adore* stories about people that are different. Especially people that have a secret. A secret that’s taboo amongst the circles in which someone travels. *wrings hands gleefully* [This content redacted because it was spoilerific] When a college world religions professor, immersed in the Orthodox Jewish community as a life choice, decides to marry within her Church after a divorce, she already has a few strikes against her. Plot-wise. In the big picture. Not in my eyes, though. I thought Tzipporah was following her beliefs, and attempting to be true to herself within the defined rules...

Review: Nothing Serious by Jessica Jarman

Review: Nothing Serious by Jessica Jarman Nothing Serious Author: Jessica Jarman Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Nothing Serious by Jessica Jarman is one of those special books, when upon finishing it, all you want is to read more; you’re sad it’s over; and you find that you must squee about how awesome it is with others who’ve read it. Seriously. It is just that wonderful. Loosely connected to London Bound, the first book in the Bound series (also penned by Ms. Jarman), Nothing Serious picks up this world over eight years forward in time, where we see the original h/h, Nathan and Meg, happily married and her two college-aged children now...

Review: The Collar by Tara Sue Me

Review: The Collar by Tara Sue Me The Collar Author: Tara Sue Me Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B What I’m Talking About: I’ve been reading The Submissive Series. I like it. I like the fact that Ms. Sue Me’s Partners in Play series is attached to The Submissive Series. Although, it almost seems as though both ‘series’ have merged in a significant way. The Collar needs a couple trigger warnings, though. One of the most painful things for me is to read about cancer stuff. I struggle and cling to Mr. VampBard like there’s no tomorrow when I read anything remotely mentioning cancer. In this title, one of the main characters has a parent dying from cancer....
