Review: Lessons in Gravity by Jessica Peterson

Review: Lessons in Gravity by Jessica Peterson Lessons in Gravity Author: Jessica Peterson Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Everyone deserves love. Everyone. No one can make you feel anything unless you let them. This feeling of empowerment was my take-away from Lessons in Gravity. The second title in Jessica Petersons’s Study Abroad series is packed with even more of the feels than the first. Although reading the first book isn’t necessary to become immersed in this storyline, it’s recommended only because the backstory of the secondary characters in the title make it that much more poignant. While we get to see more of Viv & Rafa, as well as Laura and her hot...

Review: Spanish Lessons by Jessica Peterson

Review: Spanish Lessons by Jessica Peterson Spanish Lessons Author: Jessica Peterson Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Spanish Lessons was good read. I finished the other night and needed to let it marinate. Ms. Peterson’s voice was authentic and engaging. Overall, I enjoyed the characters—especially at the end. Part of the reason I didn’t give this title an A rating is because there’s probably a generational gap or a regional difference, and I was confused by some of the usage. For example, ‘hookup’. Darlings, I graduated from high school in 1986. When we said ‘hook up’, we meant having sexy time. I understood, by context clues and world-building this was not the case....

Review: Oria’s Gambit by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: Oria’s Gambit by Jeffe Kennedy Oria’s Gambit Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: After the cliffhanger in the previous book, Lonen’s War, Gikany and Una were eager to start Oria’s Gambit.  We enjoyed it though it was a completely different feel from the previous novel. We go from a fast-paced novel filled with battles, negotiations, and confrontations to one that is a battlefront of politics and maneuverings filled with anxious waiting and debating.  Though it was still very gripping, it was a change from the pace of the previous novel.  In Oria’s Gambit, Oria and Lonen race to obtain the throne in Baran in order to protect...

Review: Her Demigod Complex by Abigail Owen

Review: Her Demigod Complex by Abigail Owen Her Demigod Complex Author: Abigail Owen Reviewers: Gikany & Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una were able to go back and read the first novella in the Legendary Consultants series after reading the second novella, The Worse for Were, first.  Her Demigod Complex tells the story of Leia and Castor, a broken nymph and a demigod.  Despite learning more of the intriguing mythology of this world from this first novella, we were a bit disappointed. We liked Leia and Castor.  Although their journey was the seemingly typical boss and assistant trope, there was a nice twist to it.  They fought their attraction for different reasons and...

Review: Hell or High Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Hell or High Water by Hailey Edwards Hell or High Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: Vampbard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: What? You haven’t started reading Hailey Edwards’ Black Dog series? You guys…get on that. I know, every time Ms. Edwards releases a title in the series or a spin-off series, I say the same thing. I MEAN IT. In the latest release in the Gemini series, Hell or High Water, there’s all the feels, and I honestly wish I could’ve holed up somewhere and devoured the story in one sitting. If you HAVE been reading this series, there’s a lot of awww and booyah! moments. There’s more than one oh, HECK no! happening as well....

Review: Lonen’s War by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: Lonen’s War by Jeffe Kennedy Lonen’s War Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Lonen’s War is the debut novel in the new Sorcerous Moons series.  We enjoyed this new fantasy world and with the cliffhanger ending, we are eager for more. First and foremost we love this world.  The rich fantasy mythology that Ms. Kennedy created is mesmerizing. The sorcerous Baran is at odds with the non-magical barbarian Destrye.  The novel begins with the Destrye invasion of Baran.  We follow Lonen, the third son of King Archimago, leading one faction of the Destrye while Oria, the only daughter of King Tav sits fretting in her tower.  The story...

Review: True North by Tamsen Parker

Review: True North by Tamsen Parker True North Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Get your one-click on, folks. Aficionados of BDSM tales will devour Tamsen Parker’s Compass series. True North, the fourth title, delivers with Parker’s attention to detail, emotional draw, and truly likable characters I wanna just have coffee with, share some stories, and be complete besties with. Let’s be honest here. I was worried when I started reading True North. I don’t have many triggers—at least ones that will make me drop a book like a piece of pottery fresh from firing. I considered it with this title. I’m SUPER glad I didn’t. Here’s your trigger warning,...

Review: Rock Wedding by Nalini Singh

Review: Rock Wedding by Nalini Singh Rock Wedding Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Nalini Singh wraps up her wonderful Rock Kiss series with Abe and Sarah’s story. Abe and Sarah share a tragic history that was chronicled briefly over the course of the series, so ending with their reunion is a fitting way to cap it off. The couple was married, but it was a very one-sided love. Abe was too wrapped up in the sorrow of his baby sister’s death, staying closed off and afraid to love. Turning to drugs and alcohol to bury his pain, his coldness eventually drove Sarah away, and into the arms of...
