Review: Royally Roma by Teri Wilson

Review: Royally Roma by Teri Wilson Royally Roma Author: Teri Wilson Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: I was super excited to read Royally Roma. It’s advertised as a retelling of the classic romance Roman Holiday – a movie I ADORE!!!!!  It’s clear the author loves Audrey Hepburn as much as I do and that she has a major crush on Prince William, which I can totally respect—I mean he’s a cutie pie. But I felt like rather than work with the romance & chemistry that Roman Holiday offers, Ms. Wilson relies way too much on sexual references. I understand that Julia and Nico have massive chemistry. That is clear from the open scene...

Review + #Giveaway: Fangs for the Memories by Molly Harper

Review + #Giveaway: Fangs for the Memories by Molly Harper Fangs for the Memories Author: Molly Harper Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Fangs for the Memories is a delightful novella set in the always hilarious Jane Jameson/Half-Moon Hollow world. The story spans the time of the second Jane Jameson book, Nice Girl’s Don’t Date Dead Men. This time around, the events are shared via the first person POV of Jane Jameson’s best friend, Andrea, who has always been in the background and very important to the plot and stories, but never front and center. The book shares the story of how Andrea and vampire Dick Cheney fall in love. As a long time fan of...

Review: Owl and the City of Angels by Kristi Charish

Review: Owl and the City of Angels by Kristi Charish Owl and the City of Angels Author: Kristi Charish Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: After the cliffhanger of the previous novel, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in this sequel to Owl and the Japanese Circus.  What I found was another gripping and exciting adventure for Owl, along with watching her grow and mature.  It was truly an enjoyable sequel. The book opens with Owl on the job for Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon, thus confirming that she will work for him per the agreement they made at the conclusion of the previous novel. Though tasked with getting one of two artifacts, Owl can’t resist...

Author Guest Post + Giveaway: Matthew Quinn Martin

Author Guest Post + Giveaway: Matthew Quinn Martin What I remember most about growing up in the ’80s is there were generally two things on every kid’s mind–the looming threat of nuclear annihilation, and scrounging up enough quarters to make a bike ride to the local arcade worth it. With video games available on every handheld device these days, it’s hard to remember (or even conceive, for younger readers) just how alluring and addictive those games were for us, crude as they were at the time. Not long ago a friend showed me a Dragon’s Lair App for the iPhone. I remember when that game came out there were lines lasting an hour just to play one single round. If you’d told...
