Review – Use As Wallpaper by Glenn Quigley

This is a quick but nuanced and entertaining read, about letting go of the past and moving on, as well as respecting one’s heritage and keeping old traditions alive. Stuart is a lovely guy, a bear-like man with a gentle soul, still unable to replace the last picture of him and his ex, which isContinue reading “Review – Use As Wallpaper by Glenn Quigley”

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 – 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 – Just Jonathan by Donna Scuvotti

This was a new genre for me, a cosy murder mystery book, although to be honest, it isn’t that cosy. Compared to some of the stuff I read, I guess it is but don’t be fooled. There are some tough issues being played out here. Jonathan is a thirteen-year-old boy dealing with the death ofContinue reading “Review – Just Jonathan by Donna Scuvotti”

Review – Did My Heart Love Till Now? by V.B. Emanuele

I was gifted an ARC copy in return for a fair and honest review. This was a lush and lurid mafia romance, detailing the forbidden love affair between Gavino and Sofia, from opposing New York crime families. (Forbidden because the families hate each other. No other reason.) This story grabs you by the throat andContinue reading “Review – Did My Heart Love Till Now? by V.B. Emanuele”

Review – Wake of Sins by Catrin Russell (Book 5: Lights of Darkness series)

I have been thoroughly enjoying this high fantasy series, from the moment Anaya set eyes on Samael and all the other characters beguiled me with their own stories. This book is no exception. This is Book 5, so it ISN’T a standalone. I believe there is one more book to come and that is nearingContinue reading “Review – Wake of Sins by Catrin Russell (Book 5: Lights of Darkness series)”

Review – Rescue by Mx. Alex

Well, this was a fun story, and a strong start to a promising series. There’s science fiction, BDSM elements, hurt/comfort, characters with disabilities and enemies to lovers. There’s a lot going on, but somehow it all merges to bring about a cohesive, enjoyable novel with likeable characters. Thank goodness Kipexo, the alien from the planetContinue reading “Review – Rescue by Mx. Alex”

K-Lee Klein has a new MM contemporary western romance out: “Finally Home – Josiah.” And there’s a giveaway! My review is at the bottom of this post. BLURB Josiah Nelson left the family home where his father’s bullying and his own fears made life a penance, swearing never to return.
