Book Review: Outpost & Horde (The Razorland Series) by Ann Aguirre

It’s been awhile since I read the first novel in Ann Aguirre’s Razorland trilogy, Enclave. However, it didn’t take long for me to get back into this series.

Book Review: Bennett (The Uncompromising #4) by Sybil Bartel

Sybil Bartel’s Bennett is a little different from the other books in her Uncompromising series. Unlike the previous books which deal with ex-military men who now use their skills to help people, Bennett is about a rock star who falls in love with his best friend’s sister.

Book Review: Holiday Temptation by Donna Hill, Farrah Rochon, K.M. Jackson

The December book of the month for Mocha Girls Read was Holiday Temptation by Donna Hill, Farrah Rochon, and K. M. Jackson. This novel features three short love stories set during the Christmas holiday. Though each was different, I found them all to be predictable and the writing deteriorated from the first story to the last. Holiday Temptation did not tempt […]

The final installment in J. R. Ward’s The Bourbon Kings series tied up all the loose ends, solved a murder mystery, and gave the characters the endings they deserved.
