Review: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie

Review: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie The Spring Bride Author: Anne Gracie Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Those that regularly read my reviews know that I am not new to Anne Gracie or the Chance Sisters series. After the second book in the series, The Autumn Bride, left we wanting, I am happy to report that was not the case with The Spring Bride. The warmth and banter that I have come to love from Ms. Gracie was back as Jane and Zachary get to know each other mainly through long walks around Berkeley Square. The inner struggles and unloading for life’s lessons and baggage was addressed and happily ever after was...

Review: Bengal’s Quest by Lora Leigh

Review: Bengal’s Quest by Lora Leigh Bengal’s Quest Author: Lora Leigh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C- What I’m Talking About: Note: this book is not a standalone nor a good starting point in the series, as there is a convoluted, confusing overall story arc that has spanned several books. The opening prologue flashback helped me recall key parts of the ongoing story, but it’s not enough for a newcomer to the series. Jumping into the mix… Cat was born a human, but was genetically altered into a Breed in an effort to save her from a childhood illness. For years she posed as Claire Martinez, hiding from the Genetic Council and the Breed who swore...

Review: One Night with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare

Review: One Night with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare One Night with a Billionaire Author: Jessica Clare Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: FINALLY! Cade Archer has been so entirely screwed over in this series. I couldn’t wait until he got his own happily-ever-after. Could. Not. Wait. But when I realized Daphne didn’t get clean—and I want to state, for the record I’m okay with that—I got a bit giddy. Okay. Maybe that was a little spoilerish. But…but…the blurb talks about Kylie. So I didn’t *really* spill the beans, right? So, throughout the entire series, Cade has been in love with Daphne, rock star diva. If you’ve read the Billionaire Boys Club series, you know all...

Review: Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

Review: Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh Shards of Hope Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Opening shortly after the conclusion of the previous book, Shards of Hope shares the story of a post-Silence world, one which sees the fierce and deadly Arrows trying to adapt. Arrow leader Aden, along with one of his top commanders, Zaira, is taken captive by an unknown group, resulting in a temporary disconnect from the PsyNet. This opens up the opportunity for Aden to learn from a Changeling pack and begin to implement post-Silence ideas into his “Arrow pack.” Overall, I enjoyed Shards of Hope as a transitional book, bringing the Psy and whole...

Review + Snippet + Giveaway: Busted by Shiloh Walker

Review + Snippet + Giveaway: Busted by Shiloh Walker Busted Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It’s no secret I love Shiloh Walker’s books. I have this ongoing ‘thing’ with her writing. I have to be ready, prepared to read about the situations her characters survive. But it’s not just about the tortured alpha males, nor the strong and tenacious women that turn them into puddles of quivering man-candy. It’s about the interaction between characters. I’m totally invested in the Barnes Brothers series, but I’m pretty sure I’ve found my new book boyfriend. I may be ruined for other hot and angsty dudes because of Trey Barnes. I think I was drawn in...

Review: Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

Review: Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat Captive Prince Author: C.S. Pacat Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: When I saw that Berkley was rereleasing Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat, an award-winning LGBTQ title, I checked Goodreads and saw glowing reviews. So I picked up the title for review, thinking it was a m/m fantasy romance, but what I found was something a bit different. After losing their King, the citizens of Akielos believe his heir, Prince Damianos. is also dead. However, Damianos was actually captured and tortured by his half-brother, Kastor, and subsequently made into the slave Damen and given as a gift to the Prince of Vere, Laurent. Laurent will be...

Review: The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare

Review: The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed Author: Jessica Clare Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Shhh. The Billionaire Boys Club books are my secret crack. Once I get my hands on one, I can’t put it down! Jessica Clare has created a wonderful secret society of powerful men that have one element missing in their lives: a woman they feel completes them. We’ve met both Audrey and Reese in previous titles of this series, and I’m going to be totally honest. I thought Audrey would end up with Cade. Yup. Didn’t happen. Thus, the apt title The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed. Readers of the series will remember Audrey’s twin, Daphne—the...

Review: What a Woman by Judi Fennell

Review: What a Woman by Judi Fennell What a Woman Author: Judi Fennell Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B/B- What I’m Talking About: After reading how Mary-Alice Catherine Manley, aka Mac, and her grandmother managed to find perfect matches for the three Manley brothers in the previous books of this enjoyable series, this time around it’s Mac’s turn to discover romance and love. As owner of her own cleaning/maid service (Manley Maids), Mac schemed with her grandmother to get her three attractive (and well-known in one case) brothers to work for her company to help promote the Manley Maid name. Now Grandma tells Mac she must clean the house of a dear friend, who happens to be...

Review: Dreamer’s Daughter by Lynn Kurland

Review: Dreamer’s Daughter by Lynn Kurland Dreamer’s Daughter Author: Lynn Kurland Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Dreamer’s Daughter is the last novel in the third of three interconnected trilogies, and completes the epic quest of Aisling of Bruadair and Rùnach of Ceangail. But, of all the challenges they’ve faced so far, none may be so great as Aisling’s acceptance of the birthright she’s denied until now. What began as a search to find someone else to save her homeland and return the throne to its rightful rulers has become Aisling’s own voyage of self-discovery, leading to the realization that she is much more important in the grand scheme of things than she...
