Review + Giveaway: The Remaking of Corbin Wale by Roan Parish

Review + Giveaway: The Remaking of Corbin Wale by Roan Parish The Remaking of Corbin Wale Author: Roan Parrish Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Although I’ve read several titles by this author, and have enjoyed each one a great deal, I had a difficult time with both the reading of The Remaking of Corbin Wale, as well as writing this review. Evocative, sensual, and magical—I can’t remember ever reading anything like it, and wanted to love it because of that alone. Each of the five senses is teased into complicity, and the author’s general storytelling abilities are evident throughout. Phrasing such as: “In Alex’s arms, time was measured in breaths and distance in the wrinkles of the...

Review: When Snowflakes Fall & Like Fresh Fallen Snow by Tara Wyatt

Review: When Snowflakes Fall & Like Fresh Fallen Snow by Tara Wyatt When Snowflakes Fall (#1) Like Fresh Fallen Snow (#2) Author: Tara Wyatt Reviewer: Nima Ratings: B+ and B What I’m Talking About: I have a soft spot for novellas, especially holiday ones.  They are these little mini escapes in the midst of chaos; something I can start and finish while juggling shopping, baking, and obligations. They are a little reminder that sweets are not just cookies from the neighborhood exchange. Both of these holiday offerings are wonderfully sweet and fat-free. When Snowflakes Fall is the first of two stories about the twin Grayson brothers, Luke and Matt. I preferred Luke’s story over Matt’s, Like Fresh Fallen Snow, probably because...

Review: It Must Be Christmas Anthology

Review: It Must Be Christmas Anthology It Must be Christmas Authors: Jennifer Crusie, Donna Alward, and Mandy Baxter Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: It may seem a little early for Christmas.  I mean we haven’t even had Halloween.  But, it is certainly not too early for some fun, romantic tales set within the Christmas season.  I thoroughly enjoyed these three holiday novellas. Jennifer Crusie’s title, Hot Toy was my favorite.  I loved the humor and absurdity of it all.  The snarkiness and contrasting elements reminded me of one of my favorite Jennifer Crusie stories, Agnes and the Hitman.  Blend together hectic last minute holiday shopping with romantic pitfalls, and add a dash...
