Review – Every Shade of Me by Alec John Belle

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to read an ARC of this book, and from the first line, I was hooked.  The writing is wonderful, an easy read but one that deals with tough subjects. I had no idea what an empath was until I read this, but Grayson (the main character) hasContinue reading “Review – Every Shade of Me by Alec John Belle”

Review – A Bridge To Forever by N. Dune

Set in the world of the Beyond The Tide series, so there are events mentioned in this book which make more sense in the wider context of the series. However, this reads well as a standalone novel once this is borne in mind. This is a great story of an established couple, yet each isContinue reading “Review – A Bridge To Forever by N. Dune”

Review – For Real by R.A. Frick

Billed as an MM/Mx BDSM romance, this was a fun read, with great characters and a plot which veered from tender to amusing to WTF? Genderqueer Ash’s character was terrific (pronouns they/them.) They were a striking balance to cis het Jeff “Flowers” who was newly out of the military and adjusting to civilian life. “Flowers”Continue reading “Review – For Real by R.A. Frick”

Review – Gideon’s Wish by Bryan T. Clark

What an absolutely delightful story this was. Gideon and Isaiah are an engaging, likeable couple taking the first tenuous steps towards love after they discover a mutual attraction. Isaiah’s meddling yet endearing mother is the instigator, and after that it’s a slow burn story which explodes into a sexy romance. There are some heavy hittingContinue reading “Review – Gideon’s Wish by Bryan T. Clark”

Review – World Warden (Wurl #2) by Albert Nothlit

This was a fabulous second book in the Wurl series. I loved Book 1, Life Seed, which I reviewed last year. (Read the review here.) There is always a danger with a second book that once the world has been established, there’s not a lot left to the story. Not so in this case. IfContinue reading “Review – World Warden (Wurl #2) by Albert Nothlit”

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 – 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”
