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 »

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: 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 »

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Branding the Virgin is pretty cute but it barely reminds me of Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride – which I appreciate. I want to say that Branding the Virgin has a lot more plot in it than most of the recent AR works which makes me excited! *big grin*… 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 »

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: Contingency Plan (Risqué Contracts #2) by Fiona Davenport

Review: Contingency Plan (Risqué Contracts #2) by Fiona Davenport

Contingency Plan is my favorite book in the Risqué Contracts series. Hands down. Contingency Plan is very much a fantasy romance – and I mean fantasy on a Disney Princess scale. But I still liked it! Especially in comparison to book #3. There’s almost every drop of wish fulfillment going… Read more »
