Review: Heart Fire by Robin D. Owens

Heart Fire Author: Robin D. Owens Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Psst. I missed a Celta’s Heartmates book last year because my reading schedule was full. Well, before the next title releases, Heart Legacy, on November 3, 2015, I HAD to read Heart Fire. Because, one does not simply skip a book […]

Review: Against the Ropes by Jeanette Murray

Against the Ropes Author: Jeanette Murray Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Against the Ropes is the second book in Murray’s First to Fight series.  It’s also the second book I’ve read with the same title in the last two years.  The first one, a BDSM story, wasn’t much better written than this […]

Review: Mine by HelenKay Dimon

Mine Author: HelenKay Dimon Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Sometimes I read a book and need to sit down and process what I’ve read. It takes me awhile to formulate my review. Mine was like that for me. In a good way. This third title in HelenKay Dimon’s Holton Woods series definitely […]

Review: Archangel’s Enigma by Nalini Singh

Archangel’s Enigma Author: Nalini Singh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Archangel’s Enigma picks up the story of angels, vampires, and Hunters roughly seven months after the conclusion of the previous book.

Review: Energized by Mary Behre

Energized Author: Mary Behre Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I’m happy to say that some of the critiques I had of the previous novels in the Tidewater series have been smoothed out, making Energized my favorite so far.  Niall and Hannah’s story was gripping, heartwarming and enjoyable. I really did enjoy Niall […]

Review: All Wound Up by Jaci Burton

All Wound Up Author: Jaci Burton Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Ok, this is book ten.  Burton successfully does what she’s done the entire series.  All Wound Up continues to deliver what her readers have come to love and expect with this series. More of the same isn’t a bad thing, especially […]

Review: Home by Morning by Kaki Warner

Home by Morning Author: Kaki Warner Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Kaki Warner’s Heartbreak Creek series has a consistent theme of Redemption and Homecoming and Home By Morning was no different. Pru and Thomas, who are both fighting to figure out where they belong and what their purposes are in a post […]

Review: Flight from Death by Yasmine Galenorn

Flight from Death Author: Yasmine Galenorn Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: C+ What We’re Talking About: Flight from Death is the debut novel in a new spin-off series, Fly by Night, from Yasmine Galenorn.  Although the premise was promising with a fascinating world, it just did not deliver for Gikany and Una. First, we need […]

DNF Review: Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat

Prince’s Gambit Author: C.S. Pacat Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: After finishing Captive Prince earlier this year, I was disappointed that the book was mislabeled as an m/m fantasy romance, but rather, it was the first book in a duo or trio that together is one story. I ranted about this […]

Review: The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie

The Spring Bride Author: Anne Gracie Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Those that regularly read my reviews know that I am not new to Anne Gracie or the Chance Sisters series. After the second book in the series, The Autumn Bride, left we wanting, I am happy to report that was not […]

Review: Bengal’s Quest by Lora Leigh

Bengal’s Quest Author: Lora Leigh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C- What I’m Talking About: Note: this book is not a standalone nor a good starting point in the series, as there is a convoluted, confusing overall story arc that has spanned several books. The opening prologue flashback helped me recall key parts of the ongoing […]

Review: One Night with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare

One Night with a Billionaire Author: Jessica Clare Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: FINALLY! Cade Archer has been so entirely screwed over in this series. I couldn’t wait until he got his own happily-ever-after. Could. Not. Wait. But when I realized Daphne didn’t get clean—and I want to state, for the record […]

Review: Grave Phantoms by Jenn Bennett

Grave Phantoms Author: Jenn Bennett Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Astrid Magnusson appears to have it all: money, privilege, independence… . The one thing she doesn’t have is the man she’s loved for years: Bo Yeung. With prejudice against Chinese immigrants a constant and pervasive obstacle, a life with him seems impossible. […]
