Review: Playing with Fire by Kat Black

Playing with Fire Author: Kat Black Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I admit it, I have literary hang-ups.  Among the worst offenders to me are titles that have little or nothing to do with the story, messy endings, and anything from words to whole phrases that are painfully overused.  Unfortunately, “Playing with […]

Review: Unraveled by Lorelei James

Unraveled Author: Lorelei James Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Shiori and Knox. *fans self* Perfectly balanced story.

Review: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs

Dead Heat Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Dead Heat is the fourth book in the phenomenal Alpha and Omega series.  We were stunned by the tightness of this story and how seemly different elements were used to weave a gripping and pathos-rich story together. Three years have […]

Review: Echo 8 by Sharon Lynn Fisher

Echo 8 Author: Sharon Lynn Fisher Reviewer: Nima Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I made the mistake of starting Echo 8 after ten o’clock at night.  I should know better because I’m familiar with Fisher’s previous books.  Echo 8 grabbed me from the first chapter and took me hostage.  Thankfully it’s not a super […]
