Review: Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #3) by Patricia C. Wrede

Review: Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #3) by Patricia C. Wrede

Ugh. I did not enjoy this one as much as others. I’m only giving 3 stars (and not 2.5) because the read wasn’t the worse – but the ending KILLED most of my enjoyment. The first two books of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles really set the tone for the series…. Read more »

Review: Afternoon Delight (Irresistible #1) by Anne Calhoun

Review: Afternoon Delight (Irresistible #1) by Anne Calhoun

Afternoon Delight. What a wonderful title. It immediately brings to mind lazy summer afternoons, hammocks, ice cold lemonade and frozen drinks. All of that and other things that we indulge ourselves with when we have the time. So it makes perfect sense that Calhoun gave her book this title. The… Read more »

Review: A Heart of Ice (Araneae Nation 0.5) by Hailey Edwards

Review: A Heart of Ice (Araneae Nation 0.5) by Hailey Edwards

I’m not really sure how to rate and review A Heart of Ice. It’s a novella for the Araneae Nation series (starts with A Hint of Frost (Araneae Nation #1)) – and I *think* it occurs before A Hint of Frost. A Heart of Ice is very much a “bridge”… Read more »

Review: Snowflakes and Silver Linings (The Gingerbread Girls #3) by Cara Colter

I hated this book. No, seriously. I really, really hated this book. I started reading this in May but I didn’t finish it up until now because…I was ready to be done before I got to the end of the first chapter. I should have just thrown in the towel… Read more »

Review: The Atrocity Archives (The Laundry Files #1) by Charles Stross

  Note: This review is for The Atrocity Archive – the short story included in the book “The Concrete Jungle” will be reviewed separately. How can I describe The Atrocity Archive? What I’ve been telling people thus far is to imagine Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, take away his… Read more »

Review: Talking Dirty with the CEO (Talking Dirty #1) by Jackie Ashenden

Talking Dirty with the CEO was a great read! I’ve been blowing back and forth in the literary wind for the past few days: I feel like I have a minor case of book hangover plus there are several not quite finished books I need to finish and review. It’s… Read more »

Review: Laid Bare (Brown Family #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: Laid Bare (Brown Family #1) by Lauren Dane

I’m not really sure what to say about Laid Bare…or how I feel about it, exactly. I started reading The Brown Family series (starting with Laid Bare) because of the way Lauren Dane seems to write her contemporary romances: there are multiple different series BUT they all (so far, at… Read more »

Review: Fighting Fair by Anne Calhoun

Review: Fighting Fair by Anne Calhoun

Fighting Fair is a super hot short that I really enjoyed. I’ve always enjoyed Romances where the couple already have some sort of deep connection – reunited lovers, friends to lovers, marriage in trouble – because those type of plot devices really allow the author to dig deeper into the… Read more »
