Review: Dark Currents (Agent of Hel #1) by Jacqueline Carey

Review: Dark Currents (Agent of Hel #1) by Jacqueline Carey

I really can’t remember what encouraged me to read Dark Currents. I am a fan of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series (at least the first six) but I’ve only tried one other book by Ms Carey and I didn’t enjoy or finish it (The Sundering) even though I found it… Read more »

So. It seems we’re back to having all teh babies again. It’s the whole breeding/babies/cumfest fantasy. I am learning this really is a thing. O_O I don’t know who is responsible but they need to be smacked up the back of the head. I mean, I decided to read Baby… Read more »

Review: I’m Yours, Baby (Yeah, Baby #5) by Fiona Davenport

Review: I’m Yours, Baby (Yeah, Baby #5) by Fiona Davenport

Why am I reading this one? Because OCD is real. This one was…different. Plus there’s a pierced penis! That’s a plus, lol. There’s not a lot to say about I’m Yours, Baby. The blurb mostly says it all. The interesting part of this story is the “why” of Weston’s disappearance…. Read more »

Review: No Choice (The James Family #1) by C.M. Steele

Review: No Choice (The James Family #1) by C.M. Steele

Bored, bored, BORING! DNF @25% This one is written in classic Alexa Riley style: Rich alpha hero, virgin heroine, the insta-love, the instant chest beating and moaning of “mine!,” etc. What made me DNF this one is that the writing felt flat. I can’t bring myself to care about the… Read more »

Review: Desiring the Forbidden (Desiring the Forbidden #1) by Megan Michaels

Review: Desiring the Forbidden (Desiring the Forbidden #1) by Megan Michaels

Desiring the Forbidden is a fairly sweet age play story. I enjoyed the dynamic between Sunni and Cade and I feel they make a good couple. I really appreciate the fact that Sunni is NOT a brat – I hate brats whether they are bratty subs or bratty Littles –… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Love is the Plan the Plan is Death by James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice Sheldon) -Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki)

Love is the Plan the Plan is Death is another of these stories that was MADE by the narration. Stefan Rudnicki stuck his big toe in this one. Seriously. If I were reading this in print, I wouldn’t have finished it. But Stefan Rudnicki gave a performance that left me… Read more »

Review: Fraternization Rule (Risqué Contracts #3) by Fiona Davenport

Review: Fraternization Rule (Risqué Contracts #3) by Fiona Davenport

I really didn’t care for this one much. I felt that the hero didn’t really give a shit about the heroine – with the exception of wanting to “own” her like a piece of property. He wants her to sacrifice everything for him while HE refuses to sacrifice anything for… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Great Loneliness by Maria Romasco Moore (Narrated by Judy Young)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Great Loneliness by Maria Romasco Moore (Narrated by Judy Young)

The Great Loneliness is an odd story. There is a lot of unexplained activity, circumstances and science that kinda drove me batty. In The Great Loneliness, it appears that the Earth has had some catastrophe of some kind. Sadly, I don’t know what it [the catastrophe] was but it whittled… Read more »
