• Review: Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) by John Gwynne

    OK! I'm calling it! Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) expired to DNF (at 23%) status on 10-Jul-2017 due to extreme prejudice against boredom.

    I did NOT enjoy much of the 23% of Malice that I completed. I was bored, bored, BORED and...

  • Review: Penric’s Demon (Penric and Desdemona #1) by Lois McMaster Bujold

    So. I have a handful of Bujold books but I've never finished one before Penric's Demon. I actually started reading Penric's Demon because Subterranean Press had a sale. Penric and the Shaman (Penric and Desdemona #2) was one of the books on sal...

  • Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

    The Zero Stone is a magical book for me in some ways.

    I first ran into The Zero Stone (and Andre Norton) in elementary school. I was a voracious reader even then and apparently, my elementary school had a fabulous catalog. At the time I...

  • Review: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse #1) by Dennis E. Taylor

    I adored We Are Legion. The Bobs are a lot of fun - though I prefer Bob 1.0 (or is that Bob 2.0?). I have to say, I'm really running into some great Space Operas. I have high hopes this trend will continue.

    The beginning was only sightly...

  • Review: The Billionaire Wins the Game (Billionaire Bachelors #1) by Melody Anne

    There's not really much to be said. The Billionaire Wins the Game follows the same of format as a typical Harlequin - but I think it's closer to the Romance line than the Presents line.

    I can't say that I particularly enjoyed The Billionai...

Review: Penalty Clause (The Risqué Contracts #1)

Review: Penalty Clause (The Risqué Contracts #1)

Yet another *sick at home* read. This one was hot but it is strange. The hero decided to make this contract in order to trap the heroine so she could become his woman. Strangely, he could have tried saying “Hello” first, you know, since they hadn’t been introduced yet. I… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Like Daughter by Tananarive Due (Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant) *spoilers*

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Like Daughter by Tananarive Due (Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant) *spoilers*

Trigger Warning: There is discussion of child molestation in the story and in this review. Like Daughter gutted me. It was unsettling and sad and just chock full of emotional WTF that I was in a bit of shock while reading. The MC of Like Daughter is Paige. Paige is… Read more »

Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Jeeze! This was hot, hot hot! and I enjoyed almost every bit of it. It was both sweet and hot. I loved Brad but I wasn’t quite as fond of LuAnn. Brad picks LuAnn up from school after she’s kicked out of the dorm for drinking, smoking and boys. Brad… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Canth by K.C. Norton (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Canth by K.C. Norton (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Canth is another odd one. Canth is both the title of this story and the name of the MC’s submarine-like vessel. The MC of Canth is chasing her ship. Somehow it started without her but since it is a perpetual motion machine, it never stopped. The majority of the story… Read more »

Review: Baby, Don’t Go (Yeah, Baby #3) by Fiona Davenport

Baby, Don’t Go is book three in the Yeah, Baby series which is this (new?) sub-genre of breeding/pregnancy/baby craze that I did NOT know what a thing until…now. I mean, AR does it but her entire body of work is focused around insta-love and bodily fluids so I thought it… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady by Elizabeth Porter Birdsall (Narrated by Judy Young)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady by Elizabeth Porter Birdsall (Narrated by Judy Young)

A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady is a bit of an oddity in this selection of stories for the Women Destroy Science Fiction! special Issue. It…feels more Steampunk than anything else and I’ve almost always attributed Steampunk more to Fantasy than Science Fiction. Also, A Burglary, Addressed By a… Read more »

Anthology Review: Hero to Obey by Various

Hero to Obey is another Kindle Unlimited read. I was only meh about this one at first and – of course – its a mixed bag – but I ended up enjoying it enough to (basically) finish up pretty quickly! That’s great for me when dealing with anthologies. It normally… Read more »

Review: Baby Steps (Yeah, Baby #2) by Fiona Davenport

Review: Baby Steps (Yeah, Baby #2) by Fiona Davenport

This one I did not enjoy. Baby Steps stars a couple who meet and have sex BEFORE learning they are step-siblings. The only catch is that their parents died before they were introduced but after the [parents] married. The hero thinks the heroine is a gold digger and says and… Read more »

Hmm. When I Make You Mine was cute and had some funny moments. Hilarious, it was not. I liked Dr. Jim quite a bit, for the most part. For the most part, this one was…ok. I enjoyed it. I thought that Jim was a total douchebag asshole in the ending… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Lonely Sea in the Sky by Amal El-Mohtar (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

The Lonely Sea in the Sky is…different but enjoyable. The story is narrated by multiple narrators with Gabrielle de Cuir providing the voice for the main character. I have to say, Gabrielle de Cuir is fast becoming my favorite narrator – the pure emotion is outstanding. Especially when she voices… Read more »
