Review: Pirate’s Alley by Suzanne Johnson

Pirate’s Alley Author: Suzanne Johnson Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Although barely any time has passed in Ms. Johnson’s thrilling Sentinels of New Orleans series, it’s been about twenty long months since the last book.

Review: Sanguine Mountain by Jennifer Foxcroft

Sanguine Mountain Author: Jennifer Foxcroft Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Sanguine Mountain’s title suggests a story of vampires and blood.  There is blood, although very little, and there are vampire—bats.  Neither Lestat nor Edward Cullen are sneaking in anyone’s windows.  The only creatures of the night in this tale are actual bats.  […]

The Virgin’s Night Out Author: Shiloh Walker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Gotta be honest. No one. NO ONE. writes tortured heroes like Shiloh Walker. The Virgin’s Night Out is novella-length (another short, Tempt Me, is offered with the e-book purchase, but not reviewed here); when I reached the 60% mark of […]

Review: The Beholder by Ivan Amberlake

The Beholder Author: Ivan Amberlake Reviewer: Una Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: The first in a new self-titled series, The Beholder is an interesting mix of action and drama set in an alternate world.  I found the mythology fascinating, though a bit confusing, and the plight of the hero gripping, though I felt an […]

The Shadows Author: JR Ward Reviewer: Jen Twimom What I’m Talking About: I freely admit that I am a JR Ward – Black Dagger Brotherhood junkie. I will devour a book, pick it apart, complain about what did or did not happen, and still go back for more the following year. I preordered The Shadows […]

Review: A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson

A Curse Unbroken Author: Cecy Robson Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: For fans of the Weird Girls series, fear not. A Curse Unbroken is not the final novel in the series.

Review: Love After All by Jaci Burton

Love After All Author: Jaci Burton Reviewer: Nima Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I’m not exactly sure how to review Love After All, book 4 in the Hope Series.  It is a very predictable narrative because there’s virtually no plot.  Parts of it are even cliché for the regular romance reader. There is a […]
