Review: Absolute Trust by Piper J. Drake

Review: Absolute Trust by Piper J. Drake Absolute Trust Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una thought Absolute Trust might have been the last book in the True Heroes series.  We are happy to say that it is not the final book.  We liked Brandon and Sophie’s story overall and look forward to more. Since the first book where we met Brandon and Sophie (and couldn’t help but observe their tension) we have waited for their story.  Although there were a couple odd notes, Brandon and Sophie’s journey was a satisfying one.  Sophie and Brandon’s trouble was never their attraction to each other or their personalities. ...

Review: Too Hot to Handle by Tessa Bailey

Review: Too Hot to Handle by Tessa Bailey Too Hot to Handle Author: Tessa Bailey Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: In case you already read my review of the second title in the Romancing the Clarksons series, here’s the first! If not, there’s a link below 😉 There’s nothing like instant attraction/chemistry to get a story rolling. There’s a lot of good ways to write the instalove trope, and then there’s some stories that make me roll my eyes so many times I worry they’ll get stuck in my head. Tessa Bailey does a great job handling the premise in Too Hot to Handle. Here’s the thing. Instalove does happen. It’s a magical thing,...

Review: Too Wild to Tame by Tessa Bailey

Review: Too Wild to Tame by Tessa Bailey Too Wild to Tame Author: Tessa Bailey Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Please don’t tell Mr. VampBard. Seriously. My one-click finger is getting a serious workout as I find more and more authors with an awesome backlist to meander my way through. Tessa Bailey is on the short list. Not kidding here, folks. I really wish I could provide you with some wonderful excerpts from Too Wild to Tame, but all the poignant ones are revelations during sexytime. They’re laced with innuendo and dirty-talking. Definitely my cuppa. I’m pretty sure some of the text in this title were flame-thrower status. Even if you haven’t read Too...

Review: Ultimate Courage by Piper J. Drake

Review: Ultimate Courage by Piper J. Drake Ultimate Courage Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B-/C+ What We’re Talking About: Ultimate Courage is the second novel in the new True Heroes series. Though we enjoy the premise and the nature of this series, this novel struck an off-note with Gikany and Una. You need not have read the first novel in the series, Extreme Honor, to be able to enjoy this one.  So far it seems that these can be read as standalone, but that may change as the series continues.  What we really love about this series is that there are two happily-ever-afters in each novel. Or, should we say, the happily-ever-after...
