Review: His Untamed Desire by Katie Reus

Review: His Untamed Desire by Katie Reus His Untamed Desire Author: Katie Reus  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una enjoy the Moon Shifter series so when we saw this novella “extra” we jumped on it.  His Untamed Desire is a quick and fun read.  It does not need to be read in conjunction with the series (hint: great way to be introduced to the series) but it is a bit of back-story and set up for the upcoming release of Avenger’s Heat.  If you follow the series, you might want to pick it up. His Untamed Desire is the story of Hector and Daphne.  It seems that Daphne is...

Review: Dark Craving by Veronica Wolff

Review: Dark Craving by Veronica Wolff Dark Craving Author: Veronica Wolff Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una are still recovering from finishing Dark Craving, the latest in the Watchers series.  Wow!  Since it is a novella, we were curious as to why it was given a full number in the series progression instead of the usual .5 – denoting it as a filler or extra between two novels.  Well, though it is novella length, Dark Craving packs the punch of a full novel with an ending that continues to blow our minds. The Watchers series follows Drew, the main character and only point of view to date, as...

Review: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson

Review: A Cursed Moon by Cecy Robson A Cursed Moon Author: Cecy Robson  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: A Cursed Moon is a novella that takes place between A Cursed Embrace and Cursed by Destiny.  This is a special novella as our narrator is Bren and not Celia (who is our point of view for both the series and the prequel novella, The Weird Girls).  We are given the opportunity of seeing Celia through someone else’s eyes.  It allows us to see that for all her strength and protectiveness, she is truly fragile when it comes to her self-esteem and happiness.  Bren sees a beautiful woman who doesn’t seem to know...

Quickie Review: Strange Soul Mates by C.L. Gordon

Quickie Review: Strange Soul Mates by C.L. Gordon Strange Soul Mates Author: C.L. Gordon  Reviewer: Nima Rating: B+, 3.5 Stars What I’m Talking About: Strange Soul Mates has been out a year, but only recently came to my attention. The story begins with Steven, an unsympathetic character, who is getting drunker and angrier by the minute.  He suspects that his girlfriend Emily is cheating since she is frequently gone, doesn’t answer his texts or calls, and often comes home smelling of alcohol. While in this tenuous state of mind, Steven is approached by an odd man, George, claiming to have invented a machine which will allow him to keep tabs on Emily by linking them together in...

Review: Darke London by Coleen Kwan

Review: Darke London by Coleen Kwan Darke London Author: Coleen Kwan Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A-, 4 stars What I’m Talking About: Darke London was a great little historical distraction.  With a different flavor than my normal reading fare, I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. There really wasn’t anything specific that caused me to rate this title four stars; it just didn’t grab me like those that are a five.  I need an intense emotional connection for that perfect rating.  However, it was an expertly crafted story that had excellent character development. While not truly bothersome, I prefer a bit more setting description than Ms. Kwan chose to use.  I’m OK with that, but in this instance, my...

Review: Friday Afternoon by Sylvia Ryan

Review: Friday Afternoon by Sylvia Ryan Friday Afternoon Author: Sylvia Ryan  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+, 5 stars What I’m Talking About: Friday Afternoon, my first journey into the works of Ms. Sylvia Ryan, absolutely hits my top 10 books of 2013.  Ryan’s perfect blend of reality – the reality of actually being a parent – with the fantasy that we, too, can have steaming-hot sex with our long-term partners makes me weep with joy.  This title is off-the-charts HOT!!! I highly recommend this title for anyone that has been struggling with the doldrums of their own sex life within a monogamous relationship.  The way Ms. Ryan frankly discusses the patterns we allow ourselves to fall...
