Review: A Little April Fools by Haley Monroe

Review: A Little April Fools by Haley Monroe

Gosh. I am such a cover whore. Seriously, have a great cover and a semi-decent blurb…and you probably are already holding my money. This cover/blurb thing I have is a serious weakness. Case in point: A Little Aprils Fools A Little Aprils Fools has a super hot guy with a… Read more »

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 »

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 »

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: Bear Mechanic by Zoe Chant

Review: Bear Mechanic by Zoe Chant

Bear Mechanic was ok. Located via Kindle Unlimited, I thought that Bear Mechanic would be humorous. I mean, with a title like Bear Mechanic and the blurb, I borrowed this one and settled in for some laughs. Sadly, Bear Mechanic takes itself rather seriously – either that or the author… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady by Elizabeth Porter Birdsall (Narrated by Judy Young)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady by Elizabeth Porter Birdsall (Narrated by Judy Young)

A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady is a bit of an oddity in this selection of stories for the Women Destroy Science Fiction! special Issue. It…feels more Steampunk than anything else and I’ve almost always attributed Steampunk more to Fantasy than Science Fiction. Also, A Burglary, Addressed By a… Read more »

Review: Bending Bethany by Aria Cole

Review: Bending Bethany by Aria Cole

Bending Bethany was really, really “meh”. It was quick so I finished it but damn it was boring. I honestly can say that I barely remembered much about either of the characters – even while I was reading it. It’s another “big sports star meets regular girl” romance but unlike… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review:  The Unfathomable Sisterhood of Ick by Charlie Jane Anders (Narrated by Cassandra Campbell) *spoilers*

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Unfathomable Sisterhood of Ick by Charlie Jane Anders (Narrated by Cassandra Campbell) *spoilers*

I didn’t enjoy The Unfathomable Sisterhood of Ick much. I felt that the story took a little too long to get into the plot. The Unfathomable Sisterhood of Ick is really a “slice of life” story if I’ve ever read one but it also reminds me a bit of The… Read more »

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Gosh. I really didn’t care for this one at all. 🙁 And that makes me rather sad. I mean, I read a lot of Lauren Dane. But the Chase Brothers series and the Petal, Georgia spin off aren’t…working for me. At all. So. Once and Again. Lily and Nathan grew… Read more »
