Review – Enter The Black Oak by Monique Edenwood

Anyone who groans at the erotic romance tropes of secret society/irresistible heroine/dominating men who are actually just abusive/cheating, look away now. This book ain’t for you. The blurb warns you as well, so don’t read the book then bitch about the men being too dominating, the heroine being too beautiful, yada, yada. You were warned.Continue reading “Review – Enter The Black Oak by Monique Edenwood”

Review – The Light of Darkness: Books 1-3 by Catrin Russell

I can’t rate this series highly enough. I loved it from the very first book, when we meet Anaya and Samael, and I just knew these two were going to be the driving force behind all the books. They are terrific characters, and their story arc is so pure and sexy, even though he isContinue reading “Review – The Light of Darkness: Books 1-3 by Catrin Russell”

Review – Cursed by J.P. Jackson

I’ve been looking forward to this, I loved Summoned (see my review here) and this is the next instalment. To be fair, it can be read as a standalone, as the author does a stellar job of explaining what happened in the first book, without info-dumping or forced insertions of prose. So if you haven’tContinue reading “Review – Cursed by J.P. Jackson”

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”
