Review: The Wolf at the Door – Charlie Adhara

THIS BOOK, guys!  This is, without a doubt, my favorite book I’ve read so far this year.  It’s a wonderful mix of police procedural mixed with paranormal romance, and it sucked me in so much I stayed up reading way, way past my bedtime.  In some ways, it reminded me of Eileen Wilks’ World of the Lupi books (one of…

Adulthood Is a Myth

Review: Adulthood Is a Myth – Sarah Andersen

This is adorable and fun and ever so insightful.  I’d call this more a collection of loosely related comics than a graphic novel, and in the same vein as Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half. I found myself relating to pretty much every page.  It’s pretty common, especially in the age of seeing everything through the lens of carefully curated…

Review: Dead Eye – Alyssa Day

“A tiger, an alligator, and a redneck walked into my pawnshop.” You know any book that starts out with that as an opening line is going to be great!  This book belongs to the peculiar genre that’s best known for Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series – cozy paranormal mysteries with a dash of romance.  Since I love all things paranormal,…

Howl for It

Review: Howl for It – Shelly Laurenston & Cynthia Eden

Like a Wolf With a Bone – Shelly Laurenston This was delightfully fun, though it took me a bit to get into it.  It’s set in 1974, with Eggie Ray Smith home on leave from the special shifter group of the Marines, and Darla Mae Lewis home from her work as a pastry chef in San Francisco.  When she’s attacked…

A Scandal in Scandinavia
Reviews

Review: A Scandal in Scandinavia – Kelly Maher

I haven’t read the previous novel, but the defining conflict that shaped Missy’s decision to go on this trip is explained, several times, so I don’t think I missed anything that would affect this story. I picked this up because it was set on a tour of Scandinavia, and because of that, I would’ve enjoyed more travel descriptions.  As it…

Baby, I'm Howling For You
Reviews

Review: Baby, I’m Howling For You – Christine Warren

Trigger warnings: attempted rape, sexual assault, death of significant other (in past), stalking Besides the prequel novella to this series, this is the first Christine Warren novel I’ve read.  While the prequel gives a little bit of extra backstory, you can read this as a standalone without any problems. The story started out with the action – Renny’s car running…

Review: HeartOn – Amy Jo Cousins

Remember how I said HeartShip, the first in the Full Hearts series, was sweet and lovely?  Yeah, this is somehow even better.  Can your read this book without reading the first?  Yes, but, seriously, it’s not that long of a book, and it’s less than a dollar right now, just go read it! “I’m about to go meet a man…
