• Product Review: Jillian Michaels’ BODYSHRED

    When I started this review I was out of shape. I was placed on a complete exercise halt due to a bad hamstring sprain for 9+ months. Prior to the [most recent] injury, I would have considered myself an "experienced" exerciser - well, I would hav...

  • Review: A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2) by Becky Chambers *spoilers*

    I absolutely loved reading A Closed and Common Orbit. I enjoyed reading the sections on Pepper/Jane 23 more than on Sidra/Lovelace but when taken as a whole, I wanted to hug this book!

    I felt that A Closed and Common Orbit clearly exemplif...

  • Review: The Cloud Roads (The Books of the Raksura #1) by Martha Wells

    I don’t have a lot of experience with Martha Wells – one short story (of the Raksura) and that’s about it. So, I had no real expectations as to how I would enjoy this book.

    And I did. By the end of the book, I found The Cloud Roads ...

  • Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (3/3)

    Standard Deviant by Holly Schofield – Narrated by Cassandra Campbell - 2.5 stars "Standard Deviant" is rather long (for flash) with very little payoff. The majority of the story has the heroine hiding behind a car. She calls the car's owner he...

  • Review: Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief by Katy Bowman

    I first learned of Katy Bowman in a very roundabout fashion: my stylist and I were discussing women's health issues - specifically diastasis recti - and how there appears to be a dearth of easy to locate information. So I decided to research dias...

Review: Filthy Boss by Penny Wylder

Review: Filthy Boss by Penny Wylder

So. Filthy Boss. Filthy Boss was infuriating. The author of Filthy Boss substituted underlines for italics. I don’t own a physical Kindle, I use the Kindle App on my iPhone. This means that I’m reading all of my KU books on my phone… …and I run into this. Every word… Read more »

Review: No Choice (The James Family #1) by C.M. Steele

Review: No Choice (The James Family #1) by C.M. Steele

Bored, bored, BORING! DNF @25% This one is written in classic Alexa Riley style: Rich alpha hero, virgin heroine, the insta-love, the instant chest beating and moaning of “mine!,” etc. What made me DNF this one is that the writing felt flat. I can’t bring myself to care about the… Read more »

Review: Desiring the Forbidden (Desiring the Forbidden #1) by Megan Michaels

Review: Desiring the Forbidden (Desiring the Forbidden #1) by Megan Michaels

Desiring the Forbidden is a fairly sweet age play story. I enjoyed the dynamic between Sunni and Cade and I feel they make a good couple. I really appreciate the fact that Sunni is NOT a brat – I hate brats whether they are bratty subs or bratty Littles –… Read more »

So. Shamelessly Taken is the first story in the Den of Sin series. Shamelessly Taken is a really sweet and quick friends to lovers story set in the backdrop of a specialized hotel that hosts BDSM events and assists clientele with getting love matches. It reminds a lot of the… Read more »

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Branding the Virgin is pretty cute but it barely reminds me of Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride – which I appreciate. I want to say that Branding the Virgin has a lot more plot in it than most of the recent AR works which makes me excited! *big grin*… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Love is the Plan the Plan is Death by James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice Sheldon) -Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki)

Love is the Plan the Plan is Death is another of these stories that was MADE by the narration. Stefan Rudnicki stuck his big toe in this one. Seriously. If I were reading this in print, I wouldn’t have finished it. But Stefan Rudnicki gave a performance that left me… Read more »

Review: Fraternization Rule (Risqué Contracts #3) by Fiona Davenport

I really didn’t care for this one much. I felt that the hero didn’t really give a shit about the heroine – with the exception of wanting to “own” her like a piece of property. He wants her to sacrifice everything for him while HE refuses to sacrifice anything for… Read more »

Review: Lingus by Mariana Zapata

OMG. No words. I loved Lingus. I really did. I loved Tristan and Kat together. I loved how gentle Tristan was with Kat and how gentle Kat was with Tristan. I loved Yoda. And all of the secondary characters, especially Zoey. In some ways, I felt the extreme slowness of… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Great Loneliness by Maria Romasco Moore (Narrated by Judy Young)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Great Loneliness by Maria Romasco Moore (Narrated by Judy Young)

The Great Loneliness is an odd story. There is a lot of unexplained activity, circumstances and science that kinda drove me batty. In The Great Loneliness, it appears that the Earth has had some catastrophe of some kind. Sadly, I don’t know what it [the catastrophe] was but it whittled… Read more »

Review: Bear Mechanic by Zoe Chant

Review: Bear Mechanic by Zoe Chant

Bear Mechanic was ok. Located via Kindle Unlimited, I thought that Bear Mechanic would be humorous. I mean, with a title like Bear Mechanic and the blurb, I borrowed this one and settled in for some laughs. Sadly, Bear Mechanic takes itself rather seriously – either that or the author… Read more »
