Review: Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles

Seeking Mr. Wrong Author: Natalie Charles Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Seeking Mr. Wrong is a book for anyone who reads a lot (too much) contemporary romance.  Readers will be able to identify all the markers they expect, but will love the acknowledgement of everything that annoys them.  Cute and sweet Lettie […]

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

The Bear and the Nightingale Author: Katherine Arden Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: The Brothers Grimm appropriated many of their classic fairytales from tales handed down all over the world.  Stories told to entertain, scare children into good behavior, and make us believe in magic.  Just maybe, with a little help from […]

Review: The Furies’ Bog by Deborah Jackson

The Furies’ Bog Author: Deborah Jackson Reviewer: Nima Rating: C The description of Deborah Jackson’s The Furies’ Bog will draw in any regular sci-fi reader.  It promises a lot.  Jackson spreads her tale across multiple locations worldwide and even space, incorporating genetics, archeology, and secret agents. The Furies’ Bog was thought-provoking. It was well-written. Parts […]

Review: Snowed In by Jenna Bayley-Burke

Snowed In Author: Jenna Bailey-Burke Reviewer: Nima Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: There isn’t much to tell you about the plot of Snowed In that’s not in the blurb—or the title for that matter. What I can tell you is that I genuinely liked this story when I had admittedly low expectations. Just a […]

Review: At Last by Addison Fox

At Last Author: Addison Fox Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Addison Fox has become a reliable Go-To author for me.  Her writing is intelligent and satisfying.  At Last marks the beginning of a new series, The Brooklyn Brotherhood.  Three boys, Nick, Fender, and Landon were in the foster care system when Louisa […]

Review: Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding by Jessica Clare

Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding Author: Jessica Clare Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Beauty and the Billionaire is just fun.  Coming in at number eight in the series, it is not strictly necessary to have read the previous seven books and novellas of the Billionaire Boys Club series, the story does […]

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. […]

Review: Vick’s Vultures by Scott Warren

Vick’s Vultures Author: Scott Warren Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I had some high expectations for Vick’s Vultures after reading the blurb.  It seemed like the scope promised was just too big for 223 pages.  I’m happy to report that relative newcomer Scott Warren rose to the hype.  This is a really […]

Review: The Goal by Elle Kennedy

The Goal Author: Elle Kennedy Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Everyone who has followed the Off-Campus series knows about the huge bomb dropped at the end of book three, The Score. With the biggest of all spoilers already out there, where did Kennedy have to go?  Everyone already hated Sabrina James; how […]

Review: Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon

Gilt Hollow Author: Lorie Langdon Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Author Lorie Langdon steps away from the fun and fantasy of her Doon Series to a darker who-done-it mystery in Gilt Hollow.  Gilt Hollow is the name of a quirky little town in Ohio that embraces artistic, creative types, but still has […]

Review: Can I See You Again? by Allison Morgan

Can I See You Again? Author: Allison Morgan Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Can I See You Again? is a good book, but it fell short of the potential to be more. Bree Caxton is a matchmaker based in La Jolla, California.  Her expertise is in reading body language and a wistful […]

Review: The Best Seller by Dina Rae

The Best Seller Author: Dina Rae Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: The Best Seller is a solid foundation to an as yet unnamed new science fiction series by Dina Rae.  With the flood of paranormal romance in the last decade, it’s been a long time since I’ve read a book about plain, […]

Review: It Happened One Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton

It Happened One Doomsday Author: Laurence MacNaughton Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: It Happened One Doomsday is a quirky little read. It has sort of a campy feel to it.  Clearly this is the first in a new series and I will likely read at least the next installment when it comes […]
