Twice Bitten by Lauren Dane

Note: Original version published as Unconditional (Cascadia Wolves #6), but this has been updated. This is a paranormal romance heavy on the explicit romance with elements of menage (sort of), so you need to know that going in. The relationship … Continue reading

Skielach by Z. A. Waterstone

It’s a sign of the strength of the story that I recognized all of the main players of the first book when they resurfaced in this one (those that did) without ever looking at the first book again. As with … Continue reading

Barrel Proof by Layla Reyne

Barrel Proof brings this gay romance/spy thriller series to a solid ending. While the previous two books had enough to stand alone, this jumps right in where the previous one left off, though it offers reminders pretty quickly to ground … Continue reading

Contract of Defiance by Tammy Salyer

Structophis by Joseph R. Lallo

I grew up on the Scooby Doo cartoons, and sure, they weren’t great literature, but there were a million reasons I kept watching. I’ve never read a narrative that invoked the same response until now, but Structophis definitely has it. … Continue reading

Contingency Plan by Robyn Bachar

Note: Contains spoilers for the first book, so read that first. This is the second book in Bachar’s science fiction romance series, and it lives up to the same things that I enjoyed in Relaunch Mission. Contingency Plan focuses on … Continue reading

Some Kind of Hero by Suzanne Brockmann

I overloaded on Brockmann a few years back (you can see the reviews by clicking her name tag below), but this book is a perfect reminder of why I binged in the first place. Some Kind of Hero is populated … Continue reading

The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May

This is the end of a trilogy and I have not read the prior two books, but as a sign of the skillful writing, what I didn’t know could be drawn from context or what is spoken by the characters. … Continue reading
