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 »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Canth by K.C. Norton (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Canth by K.C. Norton (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Canth is another odd one. Canth is both the title of this story and the name of the MC’s submarine-like vessel. The MC of Canth is chasing her ship. Somehow it started without her but since it is a perpetual motion machine, it never stopped. The majority of the story… Read more »

Review: When I Make You Mine (The Richmond Series #1) by Rae Daniel

Hmm. When I Make You Mine was cute and had some funny moments. Hilarious, it was not. I liked Dr. Jim quite a bit, for the most part. For the most part, this one was…ok. I enjoyed it. I thought that Jim was a total douchebag asshole in the ending… Read more »

Review: Zarsthor’s Bane (Witch World #11: High Hallack Cycle #4) by Andre Norton *spoilers*

Bane: [beyn] noun 1. death; destruction; ruin. 2. Obsolete. that which causes death or destroys life I love this book. It’s weird and dreamy and at some points really hard to understand (and follow). I’ve read Zarsthor’s Bane many, many times now. I can honestly say that I feel that… Read more »

Review: Kicked by Celia Aaron

Review: Kicked by Celia Aaron

Trigger Warning: There is an attempted rape in this story but it is stopped before anything happens. I feel I need to start this review with admitting to a little bias: I dislike New Adult (NA) as a genre. I dislike almost everything about NA (which seems centered around college-aged… Read more »

Review: The Shifter Romances The Writer (Nocturne Falls #6) by Kristen Painter

I’m not even sure how I ended up here. Sometimes when you read a lot… So. The Shifter Romances The Writer is book #5 in the Nocturne Falls series…I’ve read only book #1 and a novella thus far. And if we’re being honest, I can’t say I’m in love with… Read more »

Review: Blaze (Dark in You #2) by Suzanne Wright *very light spoilers*

I enjoyed the crap out of Blaze, lol. I really don’t have a lot to say about this one – it was read during a vacation and I NEVER take good notes on vaca. And that bothers me not one bit. 😀 So. Blaze. I skipped like 90% of the… Read more »

Review: The Perfect Stroke (Lucas Brothers #1) by Jordan Marie

I really enjoyed The Perfect Stroke! I’ve been hitting Kindle Unlimited pretty hard lately – I really want to get more out of it than endless Alexa Riley books (I think I’ve decided that AR is like Pokémon – “gotta read them all” LOL). Most of the stuff I’ve been… Read more »
