The Wrong Side of Magic by Janette Rallison

The Wrong Side of Magic by Janette Rallison

I am a HUGE fan of Janette Rallison! I love Janette Rallison as an author. I have loved every book that she’s written. So when I was contacted about doing a review for the release of The Wrong Side of Magic, of course I said YES! But. Then my day job went nuts and I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, which makes me sad. So instead of a review, I’m going to post a short excerpt from the book. And also tell […]

First Light by Michele Paige Holmes

First Light by Michele Paige Holmes

A Unique & Enchanting Mixed-Up Fairy Tale! I went into this blind. Other than knowing First Light was a Young Adult fairy tale romance by Michele Paige Holmes, an author I’ve previously enjoyed, I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly entertained and enthralled throughout! First Light is not a straightforward retelling of a traditional fairy tale. There were some common elements—good and evil fairies, three wishes, a heroine who doesn’t know her true identity—but the way they were woven together made it fresh […]

If We Were A Movie by Kelly Oram

If We Were A Movie by Kelly Oram

A Clean(ish) New Adult Contemporary Romance Let’s address the whole New Adult/Clean-ish thing first because this is going to be a make or break for some readers. The “New Adult” designation is sort of code for 18-25 year old characters and steamy love scenes. When a New Adult book is marked “clean” it doesn’t always mean no sex or swearing, what you’d typically expect from a “clean” romance. It usually means that relationships are implied, but not descriptive. And that is the case with this […]

Escape to Eden by Rachel McClellan

Escape to Eden by Rachel McClellan

A Fun, Plot-twisty Young Adult Dystopian Thriller Enhanced DNA can give you awesome superpowers, but it comes with a price—a shortened lifespan. When “Primes” have been genetically designed to the point that they’re no longer altogether human, pure human DNA to extend your life becomes a priceless commodity. If you’re one of the remaining few “Originals,” everyone is hunting you. Escape to Eden takes a few of the tropes from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld (two of […]

While each book is a stand-alone read, they all contain the recurring character of Pearl, the matchmaker. The story of Lani and Easton is takes place against the backdrop of Hawaii.

{Review + Giveaway} Lost King by H.B. Moore

{Review + Giveaway} Lost King by H.B. Moore

Part Spy Thriller, Part Historical Lost King is book #2 in the Omar Zagouri series. The series includes Finding Sheba (book 1, which I read and liked) and Beneath (a novella, which I have not yet read). Like Finding Sheba, which alternates between the current day adventures of Omar Zaguori and the historical story of Queen of Sheba, Lost King alternates between Zaguori and the Egyptian female pharaoh we now refer to as Hatshepsut. The interplay between story of the lost scrolls which might change […]

Arc Review + Giveaway: The Ghost Host by DelSheree Gladden

Arc Review + Giveaway: The Ghost Host by DelSheree Gladden

I don’t usually enjoy ghost stories. They freak me out. But something about the synopsis of The Ghost Host by DelSheree Gladden intrigued me. I’ve never read anything by her before, so I was willing to give it a try. Zara and Holden have both known me since kindergarten, before things got bad, but not before the ghosts. The ghost have always been there. Even now, there’s at least six of them standing around the table, hoping I’ll acknowledge them. I don’t. The Ghost Host […]

ARC Review + Giveaway: Lord Fenton’s Folly by Josi S. Kilpack

ARC Review + Giveaway: Lord Fenton’s Folly by Josi S. Kilpack

Whenever I review a romance here, I always feel the need to add a disclaimer. I don’t like romances. I don’t usually read them by choice. But I have loved every single book that I’ve read by Josi S. Kilpack, and so when she started writing Regency Romances, I knew eventually I’d cave and read them. And you know what? I loved Lord Fenton’s Folly! For me, a good regency romance is all about the characters. We first meet Alice and Lord Fenton while they […]
