Book Review: Citywide by Santino Hassell

Citywide is Five Boroughs #6 – a novella grouping of stories about three sets of characters we’ve seen throughout the first 5 books in this series. First of all I ADORE this cover. It is simply beautiful and in my opinion perfect for a book that can’t be pinned down since it covers literally the whole spectrum of relationships – male/male, female/female, male/female, poly…everything. So this cover is great since this series encompasses the city perfectly as well. Continue reading “Book Review: Citywide by Santino Hassell”

Book Review: The Uncrossing by Melissa Eastlake

This is a surprising debut from Melissa Eastlake. Heavy on the paranormal elements with dashes of fairy tales and quite a lot of sarcasm and humor thrown in, this m/m book was one that I really enjoyed from beginning to end. Continue reading “Book Review: The Uncrossing by Melissa Eastlake”

Book Review: Cherish Hard by Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh has a new series people!! This is not a drill! And it’s so GOOD! You can’t go wrong with a Nalini book. Continue reading “Book Review: Cherish Hard by Nalini Singh”

Book Review: Half Past by Victoria Helen Stone

While my preferred genre is romance to read, I do branch out occasionally and read a wide variety of genres and lately I’ve been reading a ton of suspense. So I figured what would be better than a suspense written by a romance writer? Under the name Victoria Dahl she writes funny romances that I generally love. She decided to branch out and didn’t want to have readers get confused when they got something darker so chose a different pen name for these.

Book Review: Archangel’s Viper by Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh has so many books you would think it would be hard to pick a series but nope, not for me. She is my ultimate favorite author, tops my list of authors I’d kill to meet, and this series right here is my favorite of all of hers. The Guild Hunter series has a grittiness and urbanness to it that I wouldn’t normally say that I like but like with most things Nalini just does it so, so well that I fell in love with her characters and this world. The same goes for the Psy/Changeling world but the Guild Hunters are just the best for me! Continue reading “Book Review: Archangel’s Viper by Nalini Singh”

Book Review: Temporary by Sarina Bowen & Sarah Mayberry

So co written books are seriously my catnip apparently. I can think of half a dozen pairs of authors that write together that I adore! Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell. Avon Gale and Roan Parrish. Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy…and now Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry joins that list with this romantic comedy book of their, Temporary. I was super excited when they announced it. I’m a well known Sarina fan because hello, who isn’t? But I’ve also been a big Sarah fan for years! So I was all around reccing my favorites of hers. If you haven’t read Her Favorite Temptation or Her Best Worst Mistake…run, don’t walk to get them. OH and Satisfaction and Anticipation– holy crap, you are in for a treat!

Audiobook Review: Leaning Into Love by Lane Hayes/Narrated by Seth Clayton

Leaning into Love was first released as part of It Was Always You Anthology; I never read that one, but I love a good friends-to-lovers trope and I generally enjoy Lane Hayes’ works, plus I really enjoy audiobooks. I’ve been going through them left and right lately so I was excited to listen to this one. Continue reading “Audiobook Review: Leaning Into Love by Lane Hayes/Narrated by Seth Clayton”

Book Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

The Royals trilogy by Erin Watt burst on the YA scene last year with a bang and pretty much everyone I know who read them became obsessed with them – me included.  They’re written by the writing duo of Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick, both of whom I adore and have huge fan followings in their own rights so together they were bound to be a huge hit. The tag line of the books were ‘these Royals will ruin you’. And holy crap they DID. Fallen Heir is the follow up to these and THEY DID IT AGAIN. **No spoiler ahead.** Continue reading “Book Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt”

Book Review: Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai

I was lucky enough to meet Alisha Rai at RT in May, see her speak on an amazing panel, AND receive an ARC of Hate to Want You. Plus when I told her how much a good friend identified with her characters she gave me an ARC for her. I went there already a fan but left knowing that she was firmly on my auto-buy list. Continue reading “Book Review: Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai”
