Review: Get It Right – Skye Kilaen

Content warnings: I have my issues with illustrated covers, but when I saw this cover on Twitter I just about melted. And it was absolutely perfect for this book and for Vivi and Finn. This was my first book by this author but will definitely not be my last! “Maybe there would never be a right time for them. Maybe…

Review: Stroke of Luck – Opal Carew

Content warnings: I picked this book up because it sounded like it could be some pretty fun wish fulfillment and I’m a sucker for second-chance romances. Unfortunately, it really didn’t work for me. To explain why, this post will contain spoilers for the book. After April discovers her fiancé cheating on her during their rehearsal dinner in Las Vegas, he…

Review: Party Favors – Erin McLellan

I adore this series. It’s adorable, kinky and sex-positive and I have loved every single one of these couples over the past year. This is the fourth in the holiday-themed series, and while it could be read as a stand-alone, you’d miss a lot of the backstory (and in-jokes) with the other couples. Amanda may be the disco ball heiress,…

Review: Archangel’s Sun – Nalini Singh

Content warnings: I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever, especially once the cover art was posted. The Guild Hunter series always tends to be on the darker side of paranormal, and while this book certainly lives up to that in some respects, it’s also an adorably sweet romance and a nice breather after the mayhem…

Forever with You
Reviews

Review: Forever with You – Barb Curtis

Content warnings: I’m a big fan of the second chances trope, so of course I jumped on this book. Plus, it’s set in the Niagra Falls wine country area, which I love. I’m not a drinker, but for whatever reason, I’m a big fan of romances involving vinters, and it’s nice to see something that’s not set in Napa. It’s…

Review: Daughter of the Serpentine – E.E. Knight

Content warnings: These books have absolutely gorgeous covers, and I love this one even more than Novice Dragoneer. I very much enjoyed the first book, so I was unbelievably excited to read an advanced copy of this one. And, wow, it was not a disappointment – it’s even better than the first. As this is the second in a series,…

Review: The Lady’s Champion – Marie Lipscomb

Content warnings: Natalie, Lady of Blackmere, has written every year to beg the champions of Aldland to hold one of their famous Tourneys in her town. She grew up listening to ballads about them, especially Brandon the Bear, but when they finally agree, she finds herself stymied by protocol. So, naturally, Natalie trades places with her friend Jenny, the tavern…

Review: Novice Dragoneer – E.E. Knight

Content warnings: The cover is what first caught my eye on the library’s shelf (hey, remember when people actually went to libraries??) and then the blurb sold me. It’s a coming of age story about a plucky young girl and her hopes of becoming a dragon rider. “A bad start is still a start, after all.” At fourteen, Ileth runs…

Nucleation
Reviews

Review: Nucleation – Kimberley Unger

This is billed as a first contact book, which it is, but more accurately it’s a slowly paced sci-fi thriller. It’s not focused so much on the aliens as it is on uncovering possible corporate espionage and untangling the events surrounding a deadly accident. In the future, companies like Far Reaches use quantum entanglement to allow OPs (operators) to control…

Review: Written in the Stars – Alexandria Bellefleur

Content warnings: First off, that cover is GORGEOUS. A Pride & Prejudice-inspired, fake-dating, grumpy/sunshine, opposites-attract wlw romance? Yes, please! It’s an absolutely delicious trope sundae and I absolutely gobbled this book up. “I think it’s nice,” Elle argued. “If you don’t believe in love, what’s left to believe in?” Darcy tongue poked against the inside of her cheek. “Sweet in…
