Review – Echoes of Silence by Indie Black

Aaargh, a cliffhanger! This one is on me though, as I didn’t read the recommendation I saw on Instagram properly. Just be aware there is one, and you can pre-order Part 2 of the two book series (Echoes of Vengeance, publication June 2022.) Okay, now THAT’s all out the way, the book. Wow. A veryContinue reading “Review – Echoes of Silence by Indie Black”

Review – Hood’s Ride is Red by J.P. Jackson

A fun, relatively quick read and a good way to introduce yourself to the work of this brilliant horror/comedy author. It’s a retelling of the familiar fairytale, Little Red Riding Hood, but one you would barely recognise at first. Harkin Ross, known as Hood because of his penchant for wearing “hoodies,” drives a red truckContinue reading “Review – Hood’s Ride is Red by J.P. Jackson”

Review – Ditching The Dream by Isabelle Peterson

Ditching the Dream is the first book in the steamy Dream Series of romantic page-turners (all out and available.) If you like sizzling chemistry, complex heroes, and endings that leave you craving more, then you’ll love this passionate page-turner. Okay, so you need to leave a bit of reality at the door. I mean, ifContinue reading “Review – Ditching The Dream by Isabelle Peterson”

Review – Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen

This was an incredible book, which I’ve been reading with my local book club, The Little Badgers. Set in the early days of WW2 in a Germany already entrenched in Nazi ideology, we meet orphan Sarah as she is running from the checkpoint which killed her mother, and trying to get to safety via aContinue reading “Review – Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen”

Review – Lost In The Dark by Leani M Lopez

Despite the “mass extinction lays waste to the world,” set up, this is actually a lovely little novella with all the good juicy tropes; lost in the storm, hurt/comfort, only one bed, only two people left in the world. This is a new-to-me author, and I like her writing already. Ivy is a heroine withContinue reading “Review – Lost In The Dark by Leani M Lopez”

Review – Dinky: The Nurse Mare’s Foal by Marta Moran Bishop

Despite what the title might suggest, this isn’t a book to read to the kids. In fact, it’s a harrowing story, even though it turns out well for Dinky, the so-called “junk foal.” Basically, there are mares who have their foals taken away a week after birth, so they can feed the foals of thoroughbredContinue reading “Review – Dinky: The Nurse Mare’s Foal by Marta Moran Bishop”

Review – A Tended Garden by J.P. Jackson

A Tended Garden is a fun short story (approx 58 pages) about witch Alyssa, and the coven she attends, which is run by the tyrannical Rachel. It is part comedy, part fantasy, part horror. Things go wrong for Alyssa on a regular basis, and she is always falling foul of the ghastly Rachel, who remindedContinue reading “Review – A Tended Garden by J.P. Jackson”

Review – Her Badass Bikers by Tirza Schaefer

I’ve read Tirza Schaefer’s books before, and one thing is always certain. You never know what you’re going to get. Actually, that isn’t quite true. What you ALWAYS get is a sexy mature woman, smoking hot men, and unexpected twists and turns. Ava is a woman I can identify with. She is older, she hasContinue reading “Review – Her Badass Bikers by Tirza Schaefer”

Review – The Forest (A tale of old magic) by Julia Blake

A romance to get lost in, as this magical, lusty story weaves from century to century, due to the curse of a spurned and vengeful lover. Wykenwode is village out of time, where through the centuries, generations of friends have had their destinies forced upon them by an ancient curse. The story is told viaContinue reading “Review – The Forest (A tale of old magic) by Julia Blake”

Review – Awakening (The Evolved Ones #1) by Natasha Oliver

This is a fabulously gritty start to what’s promising to be a barnstorming fantasy series. Rox is a modern heroine who wakes up, having no knowledge of who she really is. When we first meet her she is trying to get into Halo, which she believes is a sanctuary for the Evolved Ones, after theyContinue reading “Review – Awakening (The Evolved Ones #1) by Natasha Oliver”
