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...

Review: Ningaloo Nights by Tracy Cooper-Posey

Review: Ningaloo Nights by Tracy Cooper-Posey Ningaloo Nights Author: Tracy Cooper-Posey  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A-, 4 stars What I’m Talking About: Ningaloo Nights was my first foray into Tracy Cooper-Posey’s Go Get ‘em Women collection, but not my first journey into the page-scorching erotic romance that I’ve come to know and love from this talented author.  With a heat index of 5 out of 5 (seriously, I was blushing IN PUBLIC while reading this one!), be sure the air conditioning is working, and the ice bin is full! Amazon says this to-the-point novella is around 92 pages.  When I was reading a PDF e-arc, at around the 85% mark, the story ended (I was wondering...

Review: Kiss of Venom by Jennifer Estep

Review: Kiss of Venom by Jennifer Estep Kiss of Venom Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Twimom227 Rating: B+, 3.5 Stars What I’m Talking About: Taking place shortly after the events in the previous book, Deadly Sting, Kiss of Venom is told from the first person POV of Owen Grayson, the once lover of heroine Gin Blanco. It was very different reading the story from Owen’s perspective, when for so long we only “hear” what Gin thinks. But this was a much-needed story for those fans of the series who are “team Owen.” The novella immediately lets the reader in on Owen’s true feelings about Gin killing his once love, Selina Debouis (Widow’s Web) and the subsequent actions...

Review: Heat Wave by Taryn Kincaid

Review: Heat Wave by Taryn Kincaid Heat Wave Author: Taryn Kincaid Reviewer: Twimom227 Rating: B-, 3 Stars What I’m Talking About: Zena Night, sister of Lily and Dagney (from previous stories), is a succubus who is happy with her life of one-night stands and anytime-she-wants-it sex. But then she encounters Bhyrne Raines, head of the Queen Succubus’s guard, and suddenly she wants more. Bhyrne, a fire demon and cousin to Max Raines (previous story), worked his way up the ladder as a free demon and prides himself on his cold, stone demeanor. But after one look at Zena, he is precarious close to throwing it all away. Not only is she extremely tempting, but as...
