Review: Redeeming Raygan by Megan Slayer

Review: Redeeming Raygan by Megan Slayer Redeeming Raygan Author: Megan Slayer Reviewer: B. Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Sent by his publisher to Zero, Ohio after a bitter divorce from his husband, Jamie Grusin just wanted to hide out and get his novel back on track. He certainly wasn’t looking for a relationship when he decided to rent the small apartment over the local watering hole. Having dealt with one high-maintenance lover who ended up cheating on him, the last thing he should be thinking about is his brooding, skeptical new landlord. But, he can’t deny that something about the man intrigues him, and if spending time together is inspiring in more ways than...

Review: Mixing Mike by Megan Slayer

Review: Mixing Mike by Megan Slayer Mixing Mike Author: Megan Slayer Reviewer: B. Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Sure, everybody has their quirks, but Mike Larson’s album collection is in a league of its own. It also speaks of an obsession that tends to make a lot of people keep their distance. Which is fine by him, since the last guy he let get too close betrayed him. But, loneliness doesn’t really suit Mike, and what he’d like is to find someone he can truly relate to—not that such a man actually exists. Though he’s never much cared for commitment before, Leon Sanders isn’t sure he can help himself when the gorgeous, self-conscious man...

Review: The Highland Dragon’s Lady by Isabel Cooper

Review: The Highland Dragon’s Lady by Isabel Cooper The Highland Dragon’s Lady Author: Isabel Cooper Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Brought by his friend, Edmund, to his family’s estate to investigate unusual happenings that have been occurring since it passed into their keeping, Colin MacAlasdair is initially only interested in the supernatural occurrences that seem to be plaguing the place. Having lived for over three hundred years, he doubts that there’s anything he hasn’t encountered in some form or other before, and simply can’t resist such a rare and welcome novelty. But, dragon or no, nothing could have prepared him for the beautiful, quick-witted, and curiously-gifted Regina Talbot-Jones, a woman unlike any he’s ever known...

Review + Blog Tour + Giveaway: Hell on Wheels by Z.A. Maxfield

Review + Blog Tour + Giveaway: Hell on Wheels by Z.A. Maxfield Hell On Wheels Author: Z. A. Maxfield Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Living in Bluewater Bay always suited Nash Holly just fine, for the most part. Taking on a lot of the responsibility for his family at a young age never made his path an easy one, but he gladly accepted his role with unshakeable devotion. The idea that there might be more for him wasn’t anything he allowed himself to think about, at least until a close call on a rainy night turns out to be much more than it seems. Spencer Kepler-Constantine knows all about the pitfalls of fame, but recent heartbreak has made...

Quickie Review: The Christmas Top by Christi Snow

Quickie Review: The Christmas Top by Christi Snow The Christmas Top Author: Christi Snow Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Not surprisingly, Christi Snow has written yet another wonderfully sweet and sexy story with The Christmas Top. In this addition to the 1Night Stand series we’re introduced to Jason Wieland and Mark Cummins, two men on the edge of a new beginning that could be the answer to their wildest fantasies. Both men are trying to start over with a clean slate, although for very different reasons, and are hoping that Madame Eve can help make their Christmas wishes come true. Of course, all of the 1Night Stand stories I’ve read so far have been...

Review: No Boundaries by SE Jakes

Review: No Boundaries by SE Jakes No Boundaries Author: SE Jakes Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’ve become a huge fan of many of Ms. Jakes’ other series, including some written under her other pen names, so I was very eager to read the first of the Phoenix, Inc. stories, as well. No Boundaries introduces us to two intriguing and volatile characters, Cole Jacobs and Marcus Lowry, both of whom have pasts that they’d rather not revisit—ever. Unfortunately, the past is never so acquiescent, and, in Cole’s case, it is sometimes deadly. Ms. Jakes never fails to write relatable, compelling characters, and I immediately liked Cole a great deal. He is young,...

Spotlight + Review: Circus of the Damned by Cornelia Grey

Spotlight + Review: Circus of the Damned by Cornelia Grey Circus of the Damned Author: Cornelia Grey Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I admit that, having just finished one wonderful Steampunk novel, I was almost afraid of what I might encounter in Circus of the Damned, especially since Ms. Grey is a new author to me. As it turns out, I needn’t have worried at all. What I found was a magical, imaginative, and very well written story that kept me fully captivated from start to finish. From the beginning, Gilbert is an interesting character, but his self-imposed (yet understandable) solitude makes him seem incomplete. While his circumstances necessitate an unhealthy amount of bravado and self-sufficiency,...

Review: Prosperity by Alexis Hall

Review: Prosperity by Alexis Hall Prosperity Author: Alexis Hall Reviewer: B. Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I’m beginning to believe that Alexis Hall is incapable of writing anything that isn’t completely wonderful in some way or other. Or in many ways, as is the case in Prosperity. As an ardent fan of most everything Steampunk, as well as having thoroughly enjoyed the author’s other works I’ve read to date, I was excited about this title even before I was offered the chance to review it. That it exceeded all my expectations was an added bonus, and being able to lose myself so fully in the narrative was a rare delight. While the gist...

Review: Precious Metals by L.A. Witt

Review: Precious Metals by L.A. Witt Precious Metals Author: L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I was very eager to read this title, having enjoyed the first story in the Metals series a great deal, and I wasn’t disappointed. If Noble Metals succeeded in being imaginative and exciting, then this one was even better. Still set in during the gold rush in the Klondike, Precious Metals is the story of another pair of companions-turned-lovers, an invention worth killing (or dying) over, and a perilous journey through the frozen north. While both stories share certain similarities, there are enough differences between the respective situations of the main characters to allow Precious Metals...

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow Through the Veil Author: Christi Snow Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Through the Veil, the newest title and series by Christi Snow, begins with a fascinatingly horrific premise: Mother Earth, wounded for too long by the very beings she gave life to, was forced to take steps to protect herself. Everything west of the Mississippi River, and those who occupied it, seems to have been completely lost to the ocean. What’s left has been split in half by the sudden appearance of a deep gorge, and, 40 years later, an impenetrable wall of mist called the “Veil.” Even worse, most of those initial survivors mysteriously died...
