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: 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: Baby Fever (A Real Man #3) by Jenika Snow

Review: Baby Fever (A Real Man #3) by Jenika Snow

So. It seems we’re back to having all teh babies again. It’s the whole breeding/babies/cumfest fantasy. I am learning this really is a thing. O_O I don’t know who is responsible but they need to be smacked up the back of the head. I mean, I decided to read Baby… 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: 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 »

Review: The Felig Chronicles (The Felig Chronicles #1) by P.J. Dean

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 »

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 »

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 »
