Review: Craving Flight (Bound By Ink) by Tamsen Parker

Review: Craving Flight (Bound By Ink) by Tamsen Parker

This book. This one is something special. I learned about Craving Flight via the BDSM group on Goodreads – and I ignored it. Books with any kind of focus on religion (or politics) are not my thing. I dislike being preached to – even if I agree with the writer’s… Read more »

Review: Broken Open (The Hurley Boys #2) by Lauren Dane

I loved The Best Kind of Trouble so when Broken Open was announced, I was rather excited. THEN I saw the cover for Broken Open and I swooned. Every once in a while publishers get covers right and this one is pretty much on the money! That BEARD. Her HAIR…. Read more »

Review: Of Swine and Roses by Ilona Andrews

Review: Of Swine and Roses by Ilona Andrews

*sigh* This was so good. Just…so short. 🙁 I’m a greedy reader when it comes to Ilona Andrews and I always want MOAR. 😀 This is a super short-short that *could* be tied into the new Hidden Legacy series. I say “could” because this story was the catalyst for both… Read more »
