Review: The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match by Juliana Gray

Review: The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match by Juliana Gray The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match Author: Juliana Gray Reviewer: Ang Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I believe I have read all of Ms. Gray’s novels that involve the Duke of Olympia. He is a character that often gets under my skin with his meddling, pompous, know-it-all ways. So I was a bit concerned picking up this novella because I knew this was his story, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The story is full of interesting twist turns and filled with lively banter. Ms. Gray writes fun, well written secondary characters that add to dimension and depth of the story without taking away from Olympia and Penelope’s...

Review: The Crown of the Queen by Jeffe Kennedy The Crown of the Queen (from For Crown and Kingdom) Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany & Una Rating: B & A What We’re Talking About: What a treat for fans of the Twelve Kingdoms series!  The Crown of the Queen is a novella that transitions from the Twelve Kingdoms series to the new Uncharted Realms series.  This is also a nice introduction to Dafne, the heroine of the first book in the Uncharted Realms series, The Pages of the Mind. This novella takes place shortly after the conclusion of The Talon of the Hawk.  We witness the aftermath of it all: the reconciliation of the sisters, the strength of the bonds...

Review: One of the Guys by Shiloh Walker

Review: One of the Guys by Shiloh Walker One of the Guys Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Jaynie Holmes was engaged to her longtime high school sweetheart, Dean Albridge, until she catches him in bed with his best friend and their busty neighbor. Taking comfort and refuge in Kate’s (her best friend) home, Jaynie is surprised when she feels an attraction to Kate’s older brother Brian, who also happens to be Jaynie’s co-worker and business partner. One of the Guys is a super sexy, quick read. I loved Jaynie and Brian’s romance; a true friends-to-lovers story that was equal parts heartwarming and steamy. Brian and Jaynie’s chemistry was explosive, and...

Review: Magic Stars by Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Stars by Ilona Andrews Magic Stars Author: Ilona Andrews Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Magic Stars is a great little side novella for fans of the Kate Daniels series. Told mostly from the third person POV of Derek, the story shares Derek and Julie’s adventures as they work together on a deadly investigation. It is a straight forward tale, giving readers insight into both Derek’s precarious emotional/mental state and Julie’s magical training. We learn some of the rather shocking and dangerous activities Julie has been exploring, all of which make me very nervous for what is in store for her as she grows and matures. *bites nails*. Derek and...

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Brighter Than the Sun by Darynda Jones Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook review: Brighter Than the Sun Author: Darynda Jones Narrator: Lorelei King Listening Speed: 1.25x Audiobook Source: purchased What I’m Talking About: Brighter Than the Sun is a story for fans and readers of the Charlie Davidson series by Darynda Jones. Told in the first person, present tense voice of Reyes, the novella recounts his life from Charlie’s birth to a point sometime within the first book of the series. I don’t recommend this story for those who have not read the series because, although it is a prequel of sorts, knowledge of the two main characters, Charlie and Reyes,...
