Review #316

I rated this dark fantasy as 4/5 stars. It’s all written in one point of view in first person present tense narrative. River of Shadows is the first in a series. I can’t really label this as a romance in any way though it’s marketed as “dark fantasy adult romance.” Yes there were 3ish sexContinue reading “Review #316”

Review #299

So the finale of this steamy fantasy trilogy is a 4.6/5 stars. The author has done a really good job of the pacing for the believability of going from enemies to “I’d scorch the earth to save you” I’ve decided that this series is like the movie, Inception. The first time you see it/read it,Continue reading “Review #299”

Review #298

I liked the first one better so I rate this sequel a 4.5/5 stars. The third one comes out in a few days. Sometimes the mystery aspect felt too discombobulated and I’m pretty sure a bunch of answers still weren’t given by the end. My favorite part was the seductive steamy scenes, even though …Continue reading “Review #298”

Review #275

Master of Salt & Bones is a dark/modern gothic contemporary standalone romance. I gave this a generous 4.0/5 stars. Sometimes it felt more like a psychological thriller/almost erotica. At times I couldn’t determine what was real and what was a hallucination which felt part of the point. I thought Isa had a boring personality andContinue reading “Review #275”

The Secrets in Shadow and Blood

So The Secrets in Shadow and Blood is the NEXT installment in the Fae Guardians book. So I guess it wasn’t the best place to start. Each book features a separate couple so apparently I should’ve started with Season of The Wolf. Because of this I already have a feeling it’ll be a DNF forContinue reading “The Secrets in Shadow and Blood”

Review #236

I gave Music of the Night, a stand-alone, by Angela J Ford a full 5/5 stars. This Phantom of the Opera mixed with Beauty and the Beast had the perfect balance of romance, magic, songs, urgency, desire and steam, and captivating settings. It also has the most breathtaking covers on the hardcover, under the dustContinue reading “Review #236”

Review #230

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”

Review #221

I rated The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang a 4.6/5 star. There are two others in this contemporary romance series, but it could also be a standalone since it ended tied up in a neat little bow. I loved that the two points of view switched between the main characters, Stella and Michael (however IContinue reading “Review #221”
