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

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 »

Review: Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Review: Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Mariana Zapata is the Queen of High Tension/Slow Burn and she broke me with this one. Though I have to say that the blurb for Under Locke was not well done. It does not really explain that Under Locke is a safe MC book and that Dex is a member… Read more »

Review: His Captive Mortal by Renee Rose

Review: His Captive Mortal by Renee Rose

I didn’t really enjoy His Captive Mortal. I didn’t care for much of it at all. I didn’t like the interactions between the H/h, I didn’t like the way the two acted, period. I didn’t find His Captive Mortal very sexy or anything like that. It felt…weird. Almost like the… Read more »

Review: Best Man for the Bridesmaid (The DeFiore Brothers #2) by Jennifer Faye

Review: Best Man for the Bridesmaid (The DeFiore Brothers #2) by Jennifer Faye

Meh. Best Man for the Bridesmaid is a perfectly fine book. I was just bored or rolling my eyes or bored while rolling my eyes. Best Man for the Bridesmaid isn’t a silly book, per se. It’s just…has silly (but not funny) moments that sorta made me want to cringe…. Read more »

Review: Here Be Sexist Vampires (Deep In Your Veins #1) by Suzanne Wright

Review: Here Be Sexist Vampires (Deep In Your Veins #1) by Suzanne Wright

So. It seems that I’m on a bit of a Suzanne Wright kick right now. I think I’ve read about four of her books with one other pre-ordered (Blaze). I decided to read Here Be Sexist Vampires because I’d read a couple of the books in the Phoenix Pack and… Read more »

Review: Gossamer Wing (Steam and Seduction #1) by Delphine Dryden

Welcome back to Clean Up Week at Books, Life & Wine! Today we are getting rid of Gossamer Wing by Delphine Dryden because…well…to be honest, I was bored. So. I have seriously enjoyed a decent handful of Delphine Dryden’s work. In fact, Ms Dryden was my first “real” BDSM focused… Read more »

Review: Wicked Cravings (The Phoenix Pack #2) by Suzanne Wright

Review: Wicked Cravings (The Phoenix Pack #2) by Suzanne Wright

Well. This is the second installment in The Phoenix Pack series and…it was very much like book one Feral Sins. The two books are so closely linked in plot that they could almost be the same book. Both books have: -Heroine who has a very damaged wolf that is only… Read more »

Review: Entreat Me by Grace Draven

Review: Entreat Me by Grace Draven

I first met Grace Draven via an anthology, Darkly Dreaming, that began with Ms Draven’s Master of Crows (which I adored). I then went on to purchase every.single.book by Grace Draven that I could get my grubby little paws on…even though I didn’t get around to reading them. I currently… Read more »
