Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

So going into Gemina, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t even know if they were going to be the same characters from the first book or not! I wanted to be totally surprised going into this (I’m actually that way with a lot of books). I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved this one! It was heartbreaking, intriguing, and left me wanting more. […]

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway – Cage of Darkness by Jennifer Anne Davis

I was fortunate enough to have Cage of Darkness in hand after finishing Cage of Deceit; otherwise that would have been quite the long wait. I hadn’t been familiar with the author until these books but I have a feeling I’ll be reading more by Davis in the future. The sequel picks up right where the first book left off and dives right into the […]

Review – Never Trust a Pirate by Valerie Bowman

Review – Never Trust a Pirate by Valerie Bowman

Give me pirates, give me spies, give me ALL the deception and romance. This wasn’t like most of the historical romances I’ve read, involving a lady who’s not all that she seems and a pirate of sorts who has quite a share of secrets himself. I liked that Danielle held her own as the leading lady. She has a lot of secrets herself that really […]

Review – Hurricane by Cherry Adair

So far this is the second of the Cutter Cay novels that I’ve read and I have to say I enjoyed it less than the previous book, Stormchaser. Where I had issues last time around with the romance, it came up again in Hurricane between Addy and Rydell. The couple were married before disaster befell them and they divorced, but a dark turn of fate leaves Rydell in […]

Review – Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis

Review – Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis

I wanted to love Given to the Sea SO so much. I mean an all-consuming love for a book that I knew was going to be magical and original and all things right with the world. And I think my expectations were a bit too high. Let’s start with the basics: the multiple points of view. It’s common enough in fantasy, not a shocker. But when you […]

Review – Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey

Review – Duels and Deception by Cindy Anstey

Anstey has done it again with another fun, clean romance in Duels and Deception! I absolutely loved her previous release, Love, Lies and Spies, which is also a standalone like this one because these books are just plan fun. To start, I love the writing style. The pacing is good, alternating between action and plot movement, and character development which slows it down a bit and gives […]
