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 »

Review: Raging Heart On (Lucas Brothers #2) by Jordan Marie

Review: Raging Heart On (Lucas Brothers #2) by Jordan Marie

Raging Heart On was ok. It was entertaining and that was what I needed at that moment. Sadly, when compared with book one in the Lucas Brothers series, The Perfect Stroke, Raging Heart On just doesn’t live up. Raging Heart On is a “friends to lovers” tale which brings the… 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: Releasing Her Dragon (Dragon Blood #1) by Elianne Adams

Review: Releasing Her Dragon (Dragon Blood #1) by Elianne Adams

I’m not really sure how I feel about Releasing Her Dragon. At first, I was pretty interested. I was intrigued with the idea of fated mates that could be “released” and allowed to find someone new. I was also interested in the idea of needing a mate to keep from… Read more »

Review: Mine to Take by  Alexa Kaye

Review: Mine to Take by Alexa Kaye

I learned about Mine to Take and Alexa Kaye via Amazon as a recommendation for Kindle Unlimited. This is my first Alexa Kaye/Avery Kaye book but it feels rather…familiar. So far? It’s 75% Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride and 25% Claimed By The Mountain Man. Though the dirty parts… Read more »
