Review: Take Me Home by Lorelie Brown

Review: Take Me Home by Lorelie Brown Take Me Home Author: Lorelie Brown Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Lorelie Brown is a new author for me, so I was excited to read her newest addition to the Belladonna Ink series. Keighley is a twenty-three-year-old accountant who isn’t exactly looking forward to Thanksgiving with the family. Though her mother is very supportive, her Christian fundamentalist aunt gives them both a lot of grief because Keighley is a lesbian. Fed up with the whole situation, the solution quickly becomes clear: bring a date to dinner. A Craigslist ad then leads her to the perfect “girlfriend” for the occasion. In contrast, Brooke is a twenty-four-year-old tattooist...

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: Fish out of Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Fish out of Water by Hailey Edwards Fish Out of Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: If you haven’t been following my reviews of Hailey Edwards’ Black Dog books, GO! GET ON THAT! Fish Out of Water is a plot resolution from the spinoff Gemini series, featuring Cam. It DEFINITELY needs to be read after Hell or High Water—seriously, don’t mess with the series order, folks. I had a lot of questions about Harlow at the conclusion of the third title in the Gemini series, and Fish Out of Water clears them all up for me. It was super nice to see Harlow again. I must admit, I really adore...

Review: The Claiming by Tara Sue Me

Review: The Claiming by Tara Sue Me The Claiming Author: Tara Sue Me Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Before I even start, readers need to be warned that the last thirty-ish minutes of reading on this story is a preview of The Exposure, releasing October 4, 2016. I did NOT read the preview, folks. I resist the urge to do that—especially since you can come back on release day to read my thoughts on Meagan and Luke’s story. I was really geeked to get back to Cole and Sasha. I mean, Sasha has had such a difficult row to hoe after all that stuff… Anyway, it seems we finally get to see her...

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

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.
