Review: Spectacle – Rachel Vincent

Review: Spectacle – Rachel Vincent

Spectacle was a dark, yet beautiful story. Where the cryptids were taken from relative freedom to a prison more horrible than even their worst nightmares could conjure. Spectacle was even darker than Menagerie, because Delilah and her companions had managed to live for a while in relative freedom only to be caught by someone far worse than Metzger. At first, Gallagher is taken to a human prison, but this only makes Delilah’s anxiety worse, as she hasn’t had any news from him since she and some of the other female cryptids from the menagerie were taken to their new dormitory. I felt every anxious and fearful feeling Delilah and the others felt, and I have to admit that during Spectacle, my […]

Review: Lord of Chance – Erica Ridley

Review: Lord of Chance – Erica Ridley

Lord of Chance is a fantastic start to Ridley’s new historical romance series. I loved both Charlotte and Anthony, their vulnerabilities were so well hidden they hardly even noticed them anymore themselves. Lord of Chance showed the backside of the ton, of how it was to try to live up to the ideals of people who could change their mind on a whim. Anthony had fled London for Scotland to escape his creditors. An inveterate card-player, he owed much more than he could win back in time to escape jail. Charlotte was looking for an elusive laird, the one who had left his mother behind before he knew she was with child. And which has let Charlotte’s mother make ends […]

Review: And I Darken – Kiersten White

Review: And I Darken – Kiersten White

And I Darken was such a good surprise – reading about Lady Lada from when she was a mere child was a dark and delicious adventure. Have you ever been filled with glee when you realise who exactly the main character in your current read is? That’s what happened to me with And I Darken! Lada is Lord Vlad’s daughter, and she’s a princess like no other. When she was born, even the nurse who took care of her found her to be ugly. Her mother was a weak, almost invisible woman, and her father a hard, dark and mean man. When her brother was born a year after her, he was a complete opposite of Lada in every way. He […]

Review: Bounty – Kristen Ashley

Review: Bounty – Kristen Ashley

Bounty proved that there is more to life than fame and money, and while Justice had all that, she had so much more! Justice and Deke were the bomb together, and I loved that they had a connection in the past. Bounty was such a great title for their story, too, because they were both very aware to be thankful for what they had. Justice being a music star, and someone Deke thought would be high maintenance made him quite distant with her, though, and she never understood why. As he was working on renovating her house with her already living in it, they saw each other every day, and there was both hot chemistry and a strong connection between […]

Review: Silver Silence – Nalini Singh

Review: Silver Silence – Nalini Singh

Silver Silence has all the things I love about the Psy-Changeling series – a strong female lead, mystery and suspense, all the feels and hotness Silver fucking Merchant totally got to me in Silver Silence! And she sure got to a certain bear as well. Every single feel there is was invested in Valentin’s and Silver’s story, and I  loved how the overall story-arch and plot moved forward. If you’ve visited me before, you know I’m a huge Nalini Singh fan, and that was definitely cemented with Silver Silence. All the awesomeness. Silver was a character I had met several times in the prior Psy-Changeling books, as she was Kaleb’s assistant. She always seemed to be so distant and cold […]

Safe and Sexy #14 – Rock F*uck Club take 2

Safe and Sexy #14 – Rock F*uck Club take 2

Safe & Sexy #14 I’ve had the idea for a feature about safe sex for a long time, ever since I had my discussion post with the same name a long time ago! And finally, Safe & Sexy was born. It’s where I will share a quote from a story I have read, and where there is a lot of hotness and sexiness, but where they still take the time to be safe! It’s important to me to read books that make me dream, but I also want them to be somewhat realistic. And to me, characters seem realistic when they take care of themselves and their partner(s)! Safe sex is a great way to do so, and when an […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #113 – Before I Ever Met You

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #113 – Before I Ever Met You

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #113 Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post. The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well […]

Review: The Play – Karina Halle

Review: The Play – Karina Halle

The Play was way hot, and I fell head over heels for the damaged Lachlan and for Kayla as well. My feels were in overdrive during The Play, I’m not kidding. Lachlan has so many demons he literally lives in his own private hell; even if he’s able to keep said demons at bay most of the time. It’s funny to me that I didn’t really like Kayla much before I started reading this, but here, I got to understand her better, and now I love her. Between the sexy, Scottish rugby player who started out very stand-offish, and the man-eater who has sworn off men, the sparks flew. Even if Kayla and Lachlan both did their best to resist. […]

Blogtour Review: Sex in the Sticks – Sawyer Bennett

Blogtour Review: Sex in the Sticks – Sawyer Bennett

Welcome to my stop on the Blogtour for Sex in the Sticks! Sex in the Sticks is funny, very hot and with cute characters. There were several hilarious moments in Sex in the Sticks, and there were even more extremely hot moments… I found the overall story to be cute, albeit a little bit cliché with the woman from the big city going to the Alaska wilderness to find a man who wasn’t metrosexual with a better manucure than her. Valentine and her blog made me laugh out loud more than once, especially because she had partly started her sex-blog to shock her family. Sex in the Sticks started out a bit tentative, as Val left her big city behind, […]
