"Quickies" aka: short reviews :)

There is a fair amount of reviews that did not make its way here this past few weeks. Some because they were older titles and although I try to review everything I read when I am busy that is a little difficult, so I skip reviews on older publications. Others because I did not love the book and wasn't inspired to write a review. Whatever the reason, here is a line or two on the books I read recently that did not get their own post on the blog:


Temptation and Surrender (Cynster, #15)Temptation and Surrender, 

Stephanie Laurens 3.5/5

Took me well over a month to finish this one. In part because it was an audio book and I was only listening to it on my way to work, but also because it was a slow read. Or too many books into one. Depends on the point of view there. I loved the romance arc, Jonas and Emily were absolutely perfect for each other! But there was far too much going on top of that- search for a treasure, kidnapping of children, a second romance arc, an evil uncle, etc...
The Substitute by Mickey Miller

The Substitute, 

Mickey Miller 2.5/5

The premise of the book was great. The main characters had off the chart chemistry. Peyton was adorable and impossible not to love. But, there was not enough of him and his background could have been explored a lot more. The main reason I did not love this one though was that the main female character sounded like a teenager, characters that childish do not belong in adult romance books. 

Bearly Cooking by Moxie NorthBearly Cooking, 

Moxie North 4/5

Paranormal romance is my weakness! This one was a quick and easy shifter romance for a night when you don't want anything heavy or long to read. Had me smiling from beginning to end. Loggers, honey and werebears, what else could I ask for?
Your Dad Will Do by Katee Robert

Your Dad Will Do, 

Katee Robert 3/5

Erotica with a heavy dosage of taboo. Your dad Will Do was not for the faint hearted. I loved all the steaminess, the passions, the heat... I love  a good taboo too and it deliver in that front. But it was one of those erotica books that is 80% sex and has very little of a storyline.

Scoring With the Wrong Twin (WAGS, #1)Scoring With the Wrong Twin, 

Naima Simone 4.5/5

It has been a month since I read this one I still smiled when I read the title just now, that should say enough shouldn't it? Shy, awkward Sophia has a hard time telling her identical twin "no". When her sis asks her to swap places with her for a modelling shoot, she goes along. Enters in Zeph and one very hot case of mistaken identity...
The Demigod Complex (Brimstone Inc., #1)

The Demigod Complex, 

Abigail Owen 4/5

Super cute Novella that left me wanting for more. A water nymph is banished from her home and finds a job a demigod. Part of her job description is to not fall for him. I bet you can guess what happend?!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother
