Growl Anthology Review: The Alpha’s Woman by A.C. Arthur

Growl Anthology Review: The Alpha’s Woman by A.C. Arthur

Surprisingly, The Alpha’s Woman was my favorite read in the Growl Anthology. I say “surprisingly” because I read this anthology because Eve Langlais (which didn’t quite work out the way I’d hoped). To be honest, I’d planned to chuck the rest of the book back to the library as a… Read more »

Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Legal Wolf’s Mate is part of the Growl anthology but it can be purchased as a standalone here. I was rather excited about Legal Wolf’s Mate: the blurb seemed right up my alley so its the only reason I read this anthology. I’ve not read a lot of Eve Langlais… Read more »

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

I’m not really sure how I feel about Earthrise. I went through several stages of emotions while reading and…they just don’t add up. Earthrise is the first book in the Her Instruments series. I initially started reading because I was drawn to the cover. Several friends on GR have been… Read more »

Review: The Android’s Dream by  John Scalzi

Review: The Android’s Dream by John Scalzi

I have known about John Scalzi for a long time and I follow his blog. I find him (via his blog) to be intelligent, funny, silly and verbose but I’d never read any of his books before. I like Scalzi a lot as a person – he’s a fool in… Read more »

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Love it! Here, Kitty Kitty made me so happy! After spending quite some time being frustrated with book 2 (Go Fetch!), Here Kitty, Kitty more than makes up for the bullshit I dealt with. Here, Kitty Kitty was just pure fun. There is some type of plot it wasn’t as… Read more »

Anthology Review: Shifting Shadows – Alpha and Omega (Alpha and Omega #0.5) by Patricia Briggs

Anthology Review: Shifting Shadows – Alpha and Omega (Alpha and Omega #0.5) by Patricia Briggs

OK. Not gonna lie, I can’t remember when I grabbed Shifting Shadows at all. It was sometime during my Mercy Thompson spree. I bought a shitton of Mercy Thompson books…and then I stopped reading at book three. I didn’t dislike Mercy (like her a lot, actually) but I got distracted… Read more »

Review: His Little Troublemaker by Emily Tilton

Review: His Little Troublemaker by Emily Tilton

So. I really liked His Little Troublemaker! I admit to rolling my eyes a bit… …and to being squicked out a bit by the hero’s – Daniel – interest in the heroine’s…pre-pubescent-like body. …And to disliking (but appreciating the realness) of the hero thinking of lying on the heroine –… Read more »

Review: His Little Runaway by Emily Tilton

Review: His Little Runaway by Emily Tilton

I’ve slowly started getting into Ageplay but it doesn’t always work for me. This is one of those times. I really didn’t care for His Little Runaway and it felt more like dub-con than Ageplay. The heroine is 18 y/o and has run away from Juvvie. Why? Because the Warden… Read more »

Review: The Undying King by Grace Draven

Review: The Undying King by Grace Draven

“It’s no tale, girl, but the truth. Tineroth is real as is her king. His people once called him Cededa the Fair, then Cededa the Butcher, and then they called him no more. Only the carvings on Tineroth’s gates remember him and not by name. He drank the Waters and… 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 »
