Review: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

Review: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

OMG. I HATED the heroine in this book. Hated. I hated every.single.thing. about the heroine, for the most part. Every time she had dialogue I wanted to rip off her lips and sew her mouth-hole shut. Permanently. The aggravation I felt knew no bounds. In fact, I was completely unable… Read more »

Review: Freshman by Madison Faye

Review: Freshman by Madison Faye

Wow. So. How did we end up here? O_O Twice Driven and Kindle Unlimited. That’s how. Freshman was one of the three free books in the back of Twice Driven. Freshman (like Twice Driven) sounds like an Alexa Riley book. It is not. What Freshman is is poorly edited. And… Read more »

Review: Raging Hard by B.B. Hamel

Review: Raging Hard by B.B. Hamel

Raging Hard was a complete dud for me. I really didn’t enjoy it very much. The smexy times were meh. The heroine wasn’t the brightest bulb and the hero was a first class jerk. I found nothing particularly redeeming or interesting about this book. I was surprised, however, at the… Read more »

Review: One Immortal by Tia Louise

Review: One Immortal by Tia Louise

So. This is a new one for me. I picked up One Immortal via Kindle Unlimited because I’d heard some good things about it. Once I got started, I did my usual: create a new draft blog post of the book. As I was creating the draft I discovered the… Read more »

Review: What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower by Margaret Killjoy

Review: What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower by Margaret Killjoy

When I was a kid, “Choose Your Own Adventure” books were one of my favorite kinds of books. They both thrilled me and made me nervous at the same time: the uncertainty that comes with open ended stories always cause me some concern, lol. So I was rather excited when… Read more »
