Review: The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires (Half-Moon Hollow #1) by Molly Harper

Review: Good Girl Gone Plaid (The McLaughlins #1) by Shelli Stevens *light spoilers*

I…don’t know what to say about this one. It is not my favorite. The writing is fine – good, even. The characterizations, etc all worked well. I can’t say that I met a lot of cut-out characters…. But come the fuck on. There’s suspension of disbelief and then there’s taking… Read more »

Always (Sexy Suit Romance #1) by Carol Rose

Always (or “The Angry Heroine”) by Carol Rose I had a lot of problems with this book. There are a lot of good ideas but the bad execution destroys a lot of that promise. The story should have been right up my alley…but I found myself wanting to toss this… Read more »
