Review: Safe Passage – Rachel Ford

Contenting warnings: I’m a sucker for scifi romance, and when I saw this had lesbian space pirates taking on a big heist, well, I couldn’t wait to read it. And for the most part, it definitely lived up to my expectations. Kay’s had a bit of a run of bad luck and bad choices lately, with the latest leaving her…

Review: My Fake Canadian Wife – M. Hollis

Ok, first off – that cover is GORGEOUS. Secondly, a Canadian f/f fake romance novella? Heck yeah! After graduating from college in Canada with a photography degree, Dora’s coasting along at her barista job when she finds out that her student visa is expiring.  Dora doesn’t really want to go back to Brazil, so luckily her best friend has an…

Review: Going Down – Barbara Bell

This was pretty darn cute, well, if you can call a novella involving fisting “cute.”  Boss + employee and forced proximity are some of my favorite tropes, so while I’ve find the Dirty Bits line a bit hit and miss, I’m happy to add this one to one of my favorites! “My boss said to phone the fire department so…”…

Review: Surface Tension – Valentine Wheeler

Look, this is a lesbian romance about a mermaid scientist and a farmer-girl-turned-sailor, and if that doesn’t have you one-clicking the heck out of this story, I don’t know what will!  It’s a sweet, fairy-tale-like romance, and it was a delightful read. “The mast swayed beneath her, the ship banking hard as it came about, and she gripped the edge of…

Review: Calendar Girl – Georgia Beers

I’ve read several of Ms. Beers books before and I frequently recommend her to others as a reliably good and prolific f/f writer.  Unfortunately, while there was plenty of the usual goodness I expect from her, there was also one particular plot point that detracted from my enjoyment of the book. Katie has moved back in with her parents to…

Review: Rogue Nights anthology

I’ve read and enjoyed some of these anthologies before, and since there were also several familiar names, I just had to pick this up!  There are seven stories included, with two authors – Talia Hibbert and Annabeth Albert – that I’ve read and liked before.  Without further ado, here’s individual reviews of the stories: “Resisting Desire” – Talia Hibbert –…

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: Love at Last Call – M. Ullrich

I first read something by M. Ullrich back in the The Boss of Her anthology, and since her story was my favorite of the group, I was eager to check out her next book.  Plus, even though I’m not a big drinker – I can’t even tell you the last time I’ve been in a bar – I have a thing…

Review: Room Service – Fiona Riley

I’m just going to start out this review by letting you know there’s carousel sex in this book, and if that doesn’t sell you on it, I don’t know what will. “Do they usually call you after hours?” “More often than I’d like, unfortunately.” Olivia nodded and frowned at the sad tone in Savannah’s response. She lifted her head and…
