Review : Storming The Castle by Arianna Hart

Review : Storming The Castle by Arianna Hart

Let’s start this review off by being absolutely honest, I only looked at Storming The Castle because the cover is gorgeous. The sunset mixed with the couple mixed with the font. It just makes for the perfect cover. Sadly the book doesn’t quite live up to the cover. That doesn’t mean Storming The Castle isn’t a bad book, but it’s not a great book either. Sam Castleton is feeling burnt out on the rockstar life. Fearing he’s becoming an alcoholic and knowing he has no muse to speak of, he needs a quiet and secluded place to hide away for […]

Review : Mature Content (Cyberlove, #4) by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell

Review : Mature Content (Cyberlove, #4) by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell

As the Cyberlove series continues I continually find myself falling more and more in love with the writing prowess that is the duo of Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell. Separate, they are two of my favorite authors, but together I feel they are truly unstoppable. They have created such real, vibrant and complex characters that you find yourself wanting to not only befriend, but fall in love with as well. Mature Content is no different. And if I’m being honest, it’s probably the best book of the series, at least since Strong Signal. As much as they would tell you […]

Review : Hard Wired (Cyberlove, #3) by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell

Review : Hard Wired (Cyberlove, #3) by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell

Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell have teamed up for third installment in the Cyberlove series, and this time we get the story of Kai Bannon’s Twitch mods Garvy and Cherrycakes, aka Jesse and Ian. They’re two very relatable and complex characters who come together and form a bond that you cannot help but root for. I was very excited to hear that Hard Wired was about Jesse and Ian. I had no idea Ian was even an Ian at the time because I only knew him as Cherry, but that didn’t even matter. From the banter he had with Jesse […]

Review : An Indecent Proposal (The O’Malley’s, #3) by Katee Robert

Review : An Indecent Proposal (The O’Malley’s, #3) by Katee Robert

I could not speak more highly of the O’Malley’s than I already do and An Indecent Proposal is no different. Katee Robert brings readers back into the Boston underground ruled by the various crime families with the O’Malley’s having one of the biggest stakes. This time we’re given the story of the youngest son, Cillian and his journey of navigating his new life without his youngest brother. Thrown into the mix is Olivia, a mysterious bartender who can’t seem to outrun her own demons while possibly, and finally, finding her own place in the world. I didn’t want to like […]

Review : Daddy’s Best Friend (Temperance Falls, #1) by London Hale

Review : Daddy’s Best Friend (Temperance Falls, #1) by London Hale

Um, wow. Okay. The writing duo London Hale takes erotica by storm with Daddy’s Best Friend. Bringing together super alpha hero, and yummy police officer, Nathan and his best friend’s recently turned eighteen, but maybe not as naive has one thinks, Eve, in a story filled with so much heat you’ll need an industrial fan to cool yourself down. Daddy’s Best Friend is everything I love about erotica and erotic romance. There’s scorching heat and chemistry between the leads peppered with just enough romance to make you want to swoon. Nathan is this amazing alpha cop in the vein of […]

Review : It Happened on Love Street (Everland, Georgia, #1) by Lia Riley

Lia Riley has done it again. It Happened on Love Street brings everything about quaint, but quirky, small town life and mixes it with characters that you’ll not only fall in love with, but want you to wish they were real so you could befriend them yourself. Pepper Knight moved to Everland with the promise of a job. A job that was supposed to set her up for something better in life, a job that was the safe bet. Sadly, it was anything but because she finds out on her first day the offer has been rescinded. Feeling down on […]

Review : Hard Hitter (Brooklyn Bruisers, #2) by Sarina Bowen

Review : Hard Hitter (Brooklyn Bruisers, #2) by Sarina Bowen

From apple orchards in Vermont to the Ivy League, Sarina Bowen’s words captivate readers and make you want to befriend her characters, no matter how much may get on your nerves. O’Doul & Ari in Hard Hitter are no different. From their humorous interactions to the suspense surrounding Ari’s ex, I felt like I was actually in the world of the Brooklyn Bruisers. Hard Hitter is the second novel in Sarina’s Brooklyn Bruisers series. Centered around the eponymous hockey team, we as readers get to see the ins and outs of a professional team in ways no one would ever […]

Problematic books and why we read them

Problematic books and why we read them

Let’s talk about problematic books What is a problematic book? I think that’s one of the easiest questions we are able to answer in the book community. They’re books that have something problematic about them. Well, duh Ashley, you’re telling me. But it’s something more than that too. It’s a callus disregard for something triggering, something sexist, or racist. It’s could be bad representations of the LGBT community. There’s too many to reasonably list, but you get the idea. I’ve read books that definitely fit into one or more of these things at one time. Sometimes it has a lot […]

Review : Willing Victim (Flynn & Laurel, #1) by Cara McKenna

Review : Willing Victim (Flynn & Laurel, #1) by Cara McKenna

Kink comes in all ways. Most of the books with kink that I read usually involve some kind of BDSM relationships. Every now and then I stray from my norm and venture into something a bit darker, something a bit more taboo- consensual rape. Willing Victim is definitely not going to be for everyone but it’s a story that I couldn’t put down once I started. Before we go any further I want to reiterate the major theme of Willing Victim. Rape is not something that I condone. It’s not an act that I wish upon anyone. Rape is an […]
