Review #262

I rated this fantasy a 4.6/5 stars. I loved the circus/ magician performer theme with the dark vibe of the haunted mirrors. I thought the first half was much better than the last Act which is usually the opposite for me so I’m not sure what happened. There is a sequel I’ll be reading nextContinue reading “Review #262”

I gave this historical fantasy a 4.2/5 stars It’s the first of a four book series. The romance was clean but sparse overall since the plot focused on saving her friend from the villain and learning about her powers. There were a few times while reading that I felt pulled in too many directions andContinue reading “Review #255”

I gave this retelling from the Beast’s point of view a solid 4.2/5 stars. The only reason why it wasn’t higher was because of the nonstop head hopping. The prose of ‘The Beast Within’ felt a bit removed because it was third person and there was some head hopping I didn’t love. But because IContinue reading “Review #254”

I gave this FF romantasy a 4.9/5 stars. I loved the fairytale mixture of a Cinderella story turned Sleeping Beauty. And the fact that it was all from a villain’s point of view was excellent. Here are my thoughts love while reading: Chapter 1 was pure perfection. Alyce concocted an illegal “ugly” potion for aContinue reading “Review #251”

I enjoyed the first two more with Kristin’s story being my favorite. Abby’s fourth book came out last month as a Book of the Month selection andContinue reading “Review #247”

I have this contemporary romance a solid 4.2/5 stars. I liked the first in this series better than this one. Their relationship was sweet. There weren’t any unexpected turns or anything that had me on the edge of my seat. It was a cute easy read for a relaxing train-ride day. Here are my thoughtsContinue reading “Review #240”

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez received a rare 5/5 stars from me! This friends to lovers had so many feels and I felt like I went on a whole, deep journey with Josh and Kristen instead of staying in the shallow water like some other contemporary romances. There are two more books in thisContinue reading “Review #233”

I gave Stolen by the Shadow King by Alisha Klapheke a 4.3/5 stars. This fabulous enemies to lovers was the first of a fantasy romance series. I’m unsure if it’ll be a duology or longer. The next is called Rise of the Fire Queen, available for preorder. There are other books related to this oneContinue reading “Review #231”

So Wake County Public Library purchased Touch of Malice at my request. I’m the first one to read a fresh copy! Unfortunately, at the end I rated this steamy contemporary fantasy as a 3.3/5 stars and here’s my thoughts as reading. Chapter one is all about Persephone’s lingering response from her trauma in the climaxContinue reading “Review #230”
