Review: Legacy (The Time Weaver Chronicles #2) – Thomas A. Knight

Review: Legacy (The Time Weaver Chronicles #2) – Thomas A. Knight

*I received a free copy of Legacy directly from the author in exchange of an honest review* Legacy starts with a bang, kind of. Krycin wakes up on the shore of an island, with no memory of who he is, what has happened to him or why he is on an island. The first person he meets is a young wizard who helps him out. The wizard is none other than Gladius. The two men become friends, even as Krycin is a little uneasy about some of the choices Gladius makes when it comes to magic and its’ usage. As the beginning of Legacy was pretty intense, first with even the reader not knowing who the main character was – […]

Review: Impulse (Mageri #3) – Dannika Dark

Review: Impulse (Mageri #3) – Dannika Dark

Impulse is a very apt name for the third book in the Mageri series! We get to know more about Silver, her birth, her childhood, and why she is sometimes not doing what her impulse is telling her to do! We also get to know a lot more about Justus and his own brand of impulse control. It was amazing to get more back-story on Justus, it explains so much about the way he treats Silver, and also the way he treats the women he’s with. There is also a lot of action in Impulse, both with fights and with the budding romantic relationship between Logan and Silver. I sure have a soft spot for Logan! I know I would […]

Review: The Best Man – Kristan Higgins

Review: The Best Man – Kristan Higgins

*I received a free ARC of The Best Man from Harelquin Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Best Man is exactly the kind of contemporary romance I love to immerse myself in! Cute little tourist town upstate New York. Quirky and seeminlgy ‘real’ heroine. A hot and brooding alpha-male – whom Faith is trying her best to hate, and who does his best to show her his disdain. A big family that is united in many ways, but where they all still feel shattered by their mother’s death twenty years ago. Romance, hot and steamy make-out scenes – and The Best Man has all the ingredients for success!

Review: Lover at Last (Black Dagger Brotherhood #11) – J. R. Ward

Lover at Last is the tale of Blay and Qhuinn, who have been friends since childhood. When they went to their transitions at the same time, and Qhuinn was disowned by his family, Blay was the one who was there for him.

The brooding friends are both jealous, but they are unable to talk about their feelings. Blay thinks Qhuinn is a lost cause, especially now that the Chosen has been with him. Qhuinn is sure that Blay will stay with Saxon forever, and that there is no more chances for him and […]

Review: Back on Track (Strangers on a Train) – Donna Cummings

*I received a free ARC of Back on Track from the author in exchange of an honest review* Back on Track is a short novella about Allie and Matt. They have both been avoiding dating for a while, each for their own reasons. When their friends persuade them to go on a wine-tasting train ride, they follow along. Neither is very happy about it at first, but when Allie notices Matt, she thinks he’s pretty hot. Her friend tells her to go for it – and she has the corkiest pick-up line I’ve ever seen. But it worked!

She doesn’t really want to leave New York, but it seems there aren’t that many openings for an English teacher in a local college.

Review: The Demon Lover (Fairwick Chronicles #1) – Juliet Dark

She sees herself writing more books as well as teaching students who are interested in gothic literature and fairy tales.

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

*I received a free ARC of Beautiful Bastard from Gallery Books via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* Beautiful Bastard starts out with angry sex in the very first chapter. Chloe is talking to herself quite a lot in her own head, which some might find endearing, but I found that pretty annoying. For the first two thirds of the story, I thought both Chloe and Bennett were pretty much one-dimensional. The only thing we get to know about them is that they love to tell each other off – just before having rough sex in inappropriate places.

Review: The Scandalous, Dissolute, No Good Mr. Wright – Tessa Dare

*I received a free ARC of The Scandalous, Dissolute, No Good Mr. Wright from Avon Books via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* The Scandalous, Dissolute, No Good Mr. Wright is a fun and romantic book, about the man Eliza really should stay far, far away from. When she meets him for the first time, she finds him quite different from the rake she’d imagined, though…
