Review: Filthy Boss by Penny Wylder

Review: Filthy Boss by Penny Wylder

So. Filthy Boss. Filthy Boss was infuriating. The author of Filthy Boss substituted underlines for italics. I don’t own a physical Kindle, I use the Kindle App on my iPhone. This means that I’m reading all of my KU books on my phone… …and I run into this. Every word… Read more »

Welcome back to Clean Up Week at Books, Life & Wine! Today we’re DNF’ing The Felig Chronicles (The Felig Chronicles #1) by P.J. Dean at 30%. Primary Reason: Unable to get into the story due to telling and not showing. I first met The Felig Chronicles in 2014 after seeing… Read more »

Review: Dripping by Maddy Roman

Review: Dripping by Maddy Roman

DNF @22% Yeah. This one is soooo far from being my cup of tea. I found it to be disgusting, to be honest. Completely gross and disgusting. Let’s start one why I got rid of this one: -Our Heroine, Janie/Star: Janie is supposedly a top dancer at a prestigious dance… Read more »

Review: Dark Lord of Derkholm (Derkholm #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

Review: Dark Lord of Derkholm (Derkholm #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

DNF at 45% I’ve been sitting on Dark Lord of Derkholm for a while now. Initially I really liked it and found it humorous. It reminded me of Pratchett’s DiscWorld a bit (in its humor only). So color me shocked when I ran into a vaguely worded but pretty obvious… Read more »

Review: Ordered By The Mountain Man (Modern Mail-Order Bride Romance #2) by Frankie Love

Review: Ordered By The Mountain Man (Modern Mail-Order Bride Romance #2) by Frankie Love

Ugh. IDK what it was about this one but…not a fan. I didn’t care for the heroine’s attitude (about marriage and about life) and I hated the way these people spoke to each other. I mean, every other word they (all) uttered made me feel like cringing. Sometimes when I… Read more »

Review: Unjustified Demands (Filthy Florida Alphas #2) by Baylee Rose

Review: Unjustified Demands (Filthy Florida Alphas #2) by Baylee Rose

DNF@25% So. Unjustified Demands was written by Baylee Rose, the penname for Jordan Marie. Unjustified Demands is also a free book hiding in the end of The Perfect Stroke. I really enjoyed The Perfect Stroke so I decided to dive right into Unjustified Demands when I saw it. Unjustified Demands… Read more »

Review: Prince With Benefits by Nicole Snow

Review: Prince With Benefits by Nicole Snow

DNF at 28% Gaaaah! Kindle Unlimited and its freaking slush pile reads! I hoped this would get better. I plucked at it and picked at it and still could not force myself past 28%. I have ZERO interest in the douchebag, full of himself hero and the dumber than a… Read more »

Review: Sugar Daddies by Jade West

Review: Sugar Daddies by Jade West

DNF @ 36% So. This one falls 100% under “not my cup of tea.” I can’t say it’s particularly badly written: it’s not. It’s just not my thing. Sugar Daddies is about dudes who like to put two penises in the same hole at the same time. OUCH!! I’ve heard… Read more »

Review: Sold to the Hitman by Alexis Abbott

Review: Sold to the Hitman by Alexis Abbott

DNF at 23% blah blah blah. Sold to the Hitman was…so incredibly boring that I couldn’t force myself to read past 23%. I thought the heroine was…bland, boring and forgettable. I was a little more interested in the hero but he was boring, too. Sometimes Kindle Unlimited leads to this… Read more »

Review: Gossamer Wing (Steam and Seduction #1) by Delphine Dryden

Review: Gossamer Wing (Steam and Seduction #1) by Delphine Dryden

Welcome back to Clean Up Week at Books, Life & Wine! Today we are getting rid of Gossamer Wing by Delphine Dryden because…well…to be honest, I was bored. So. I have seriously enjoyed a decent handful of Delphine Dryden’s work. In fact, Ms Dryden was my first “real” BDSM focused… Read more »
