"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?!

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
