Review: Shadow of a Dead God – Patrick Samphire

When one of your favorite authors says her husband is coming out with a book and it’s awesome, well, what else can you do but read it? This book is so much fun – a snarky down-on-his-luck hero, an investigation with high stakes, and quirky side characters! “People tend to say as little as possible to the Ash Guard —…

Review: Pregnant by the Playboy – Jackie Lau

Content warnings: Ever since reading Mr. Hotshot CEO, I’ve wanted a book about Vince, the guy who refused to return his workaholic brother’s cellphone unless he attended an orgy with him. Accidental pregnancy books are usually not my thing, but Jackie Lau has a knack for exploring tropes, and I thought this navigated the issues I usually have with them…

Review: Until the End – Juno Rushdan

Content warnings: I’ve enjoyed every one of Juno Rushdan’s books I’ve read, but none of them have been as much of an edge-of-your-seat roller coaster ride as this one! This is the third in a series, and while you could probably read it as a stand-alone as everything is recapped well, it won’t be quite the same experience. Castle is…

Review: Nothing to Fear – Juno Rushdan

Content warnings: I loved Every Last Breath so I was very excited to read this book. Forced proximity on-the-run? Neurodivergent heroine? Heck yes! It picks up shortly after the first book, and while you could possibly read it as a standalone, I think it works better as part of the series. After the startling realization that the Grey Box has a…

Reviews

Review: Starcrossed – Allie Therin

Content warnings: I’m a sucker for sunshine/grumpy pairings, and Rory and Arthur completely stole my heart in Spellbound. So it’s no surprise that I jumped on this book the second I saw the ARC was available. The story picks up not long after the events of the last book, so I would definitely not recommend reading this as a standalone. I…

Review: Through a Valley of White Mist – Anela Deen

After that cliffhanger of an ending for the last novella, I was very anxious to find out what happened with Simith and Jessa. Thankfully, this is the last novella in the series, and it definitely delivers! “The grief you suffered and this peace you engineered absolves you of nothing.” Jessa and Smith have led the trolls to the pixies’ home,…

Scandalous Passions
Reviews

Review: Scandalous Passions – Nicola Davidson

Content warnings: This is a fun, quick historical polyam romance. It’s pretty much erotic romance, as there is a side plot but most of the focus is on the three characters figuring out how they work together, both sexually and relationship-wise. “And yet…the thought of hunts rather than war, a large feather bed with thick quilts in a warm chamber rather…

Review: Dawn’s Envoy – T. A. White

Content warnings: I definitely have some conflicting feelings about this book. Each of these books has stripped more of Aileen’s humanity away, forcing her to face some hard truths, and this book is definitely the culmination of that. Most of this review is my reaction to specific events, so this is a giant spoilerfest! If last book was the werewolf…

Review: Moonlight’s Ambassador – T. A. White

Why yes, I am still trucking through this series in anticipation of the fifth book being released in early June! As you’d expect, there are massive spoilers below for the first two books in the series, especially as this book is spent dealing with the fallout from the last book. Spoilers ahoy! “Turns out lying, even by omission, pretty much…

Review: Midnight’s Emissary – T.A. White

Content warnings: Aileen’s main defense against the rest of the world is still being annoying AF, and I love it. She’s desperate to keep control of her life, but after the events of the last book, she knows she can’t keep sticking her head in the sand. While Liam promised to help, after several months with no contact, she’s desperate…
