Review: Elizabeth’s Wolf by Lora Leigh

Elizabeth’s Wolf Author: Lora Leigh Reviewer: Jen Rating: B What I’m Talking About: If you’ve followed by reviews for any length of time, you know I have a love-hate relationship with the Breeds series by Lora Leigh.

Review: Pressure Head by JL Merrow

Pressure Head Author: JL Merrow Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I was immediately curious about Pressure Head based on the premise alone: a plumber who has an affinity for water, uses his “gift” that causes him to be drawn to “hidden things” to find clues—and dead people. Tom won me over quickly, […]

Review: Outside the Lines by Anna Zabo

Outside The Lines Author: Anna Zabo Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Finding romance—or even the occasional hookup—in a little town like Bluewater Bay has been far more complicated than miniature set designer Ian Meyers would have liked.
