Review: A Season to Celebrate anthology

Look, I’m going to be 100% honest with you.  I completely picked this up for Priscilla Oliveras’ story, because all the other authors are completely new to me.  Also, while the cover is cute, it’s usually indicative of the kind of romance I don’t particularly enjoy, so I had pretty low expectations going in.  Luckily, most of the stories were…

Review: Worlds Collide – Tracy St. John

I’ve very much enjoyed the previous two books in the Warriors of Risnar series, and this one took a unique turn.  I would not recommend picking this up without having read at least the previous one, as much of the plot builds on past events. Velia has finally got her dream job – working with alien technology at a secret…

Review: The Butterfly Bride – Vanessa Riley

The third installment of the Advertisements for Love series finally brings us Frederica and Jasper’s story (and another beautiful cover!).  They’ve been popping up in the other books since a particular incident with a maypole, and I was so looking forward to figuring out how they would end up together!  While I think this could be read as a standalone,…

Review: In the Vanishers’ Palace – Aliette de Bodard

I’d previously read – and loved – Ms. de Bodard’s reimagining of Sherlock and Watson, so when I saw she had a Beauty and the Beast retelling coming out, I was ridiculously excited – and even more so when I saw the gorgeous cover.  Ms. de Bodard has a way of condensing a familiar story down to its bones, and…

Review: Aquicorn Cove – Katie O’Neill

Ms. O’Neill’s art is adorably cute, and I liked her previous graphic novel, The Tea Dragon Society, so much that I bought a signed copy, so I was excited to see she had something new coming out with equally adorable fantasy creatures. Lana and her father have returned to their seaside hometown after it’s been hit by a big storm…

Review: Free Trade – Lynda Aicher

Drake and Shelly, the couple in this novella, have been popping up in the background of the series for a while, sometimes together, sometimes separately.  The basic gist is that while Shelly is pretty kinky, she’s unable to actually express what she wants in the middle of sex.  There’s one man, whoever, who seems to be the sexual mind reader…

Mr. Nice Guy

Review: Mr. Nice Guy – Jennifer Miller and Jason Feifer

Content warning: First off – this is not a romance.  It’s lit fic about two characters who have sex with each other and then write articles about it, layered on top of a traditional “boy meets city” theme.  It’s a bit of mash-mash of several themes, and while some of them work, some of them most definitely don’t.  It, like…

Review: Craft Brew – Layla Reyne

I’ve really fallen in love recently with the m/m suspense genre.  I loved Ms. Reyne’s Irish and Whiskey series, and I was excited to read the first book in the spin-off series, Imperial Stout.  It definitely delivered, and, I have to say, I loved this one even more!  As a note, this book can’t be read as a standalone, but…
