Medusa's Heart Excerpt Reveal!

Medusa’s Heart Joey W. Hill Excerpt Reveal

Blurb: John Pierce has been in covert operations all his adult life. He doesn’t know anything else but that and being a Dom, because that’s how he blows off steam and balances the nagging emptiness inside of him. Since he was a kid, he’s carried around an infatuation that’s grown into an embarrassing obsession. He’s in love with a myth—Medusa
“Mad Merlin” Maddock doesn’t think that’s crazy. He believes in powers deeper and stronger than men or gods, a connecting energy like the oceans. To those powers, healing a broken heart could create a ripple effect in the universe impacting all, even if that heart lives in the alternate dimension of folklore and myth. JP is the first one Maddock plans to send across those lines to bond with the woman he’s always wanted.
JP agrees to be his first guinea pig for two reasons. One, Maddock is so damn convincing, and two, the need for her has tripled since he met the guy. If Maddock can send JP into her world, …

Review: Her Halloween Treat

Her Halloween Treat by Tiffany Reisz
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

A heartbreak, a rebound and a love declaration are more than enough for Joey Silvia. This woman is pulled in too many directions for her to think straight. Her two year relationships she's invested in, turns out to be so different than she expected. There is a reason why surprise visits rarely go over well. Licking her wounds, Joey travels to Oregon several days earlier than planned for her brother's wedding.

This love story kicking off in a train wreck is captivating because it is a little too frequent in real life. Readers cannot help but want to know what will happen. Ms. Reisz takes a situation and exposes it in full colour. What I liked about this, is Joey's perspective and how heartbroken she is for being duped. The reader becomes sympathetic and outraged for Joey. We are like Joey's best friend, Kira. We root for her to take on…

Review: Curse on the Land

Curse on the Land by Faith Hunter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Buy this book now and read it. The second book in this series is captivating and weaves a spell to lure a reader into this magical world. Ms. Hunter's world building becomes better and better with each book she writes. This book could be read as a standalone but it is so much better if read in the order of the series. Nell is back and this time, she is gainfully employed with PsyLED instead of an auxiliary consultant. Fresh out of training at the academy, Nell is exhausted and concerned about her home. There is a malignant cancerous growth in her woods and she does not know how to fix it. It is just one of the many issues she needs to juggle.

I loved this book. This is a page turner and solidly located in my favourite book collection. After reading it through the first time, I must have re-read it again about ten tim…

Flipped Off by Zenina Masters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Review: The Tides of Bára

The Tides of Bára by Jeffe Kennedy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

To live without magic is inconceivable for Oria. When she is left with no choice by to flee from her homelands, she knowingly goes outside of her city walls to where the wild magic swirl and the land is dying without water. Full disclosure, I read this book out of order and it is not recommended to read this as a standalone. After reading this book, I want to go back and read the first two books to get my head on straight. Whilst it was easy to figure out where the conflicts are and at a high level what happened to Oria and Lonen, it was still a bit disorienting. Especially as I had no previous engagement with these two characters so it was a bit hard for me to warm up to them.

Oria came across as a sulky princess too delicate to do much other than complain. Granted she is physically depleted as the wild magics does render her unconscious. Her r…

Review: Oh Joy Sex Toy, Vol. 3

Oh Joy Sex Toy, Vol. 3 by Erika Moen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Witty, comical and educational, Erika Moen brings another well illustrated sex positive book to print. Had I know this was a kickstart, I would have put money down for the kickstart. I would love to own this album in paper. This is a wonderfully illustrated book detailing about different types of sex and sex toy reviews. This did tend to feel more like a book on sex toy reviews, but they were interesting. I liked how the review was presented and Ms. Moen made sex really fun and less intimidating.

The illustration style is attention grabbing in a soothing way for me. I thought I'd have issues because I loathe the colour pink. This entire book seems to be fifty shades of pink. Oh the horror! Still, I made it through with their clever observations and frank opinions. Several of the toys they featured I own or have…

Review: Wild

Wild by Eve Langlais
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This trio of erotic paranormal romance writers bring a delicious collection of smexy stories to life. Feeling a bit numb with all the books I have been reading, I picked up this book because I have had good experiences with Ms. Langlais. I hoped her book would pick me up out of my reading slump. She does not disappoint.

In Catch a Tiger by the Tail, Broderick is a tiger not to be messed with. This story is action packed and I am stunned with how much goes on in this novella. Ms. Langlais creates a fabulous world with engaging characters and a well written plot. The chemistry between the characters is smoking. The plot twists adds a nice heat to the story. I loved it and after reading this story, I hoped there is more in this world.

The meat in this threesome sandwich is Wild Passions by Kate Douglas. I thought this would be another forgettable werewolf finding their soulmate story. Whilst this is the plot premise, it is much more. The stor…

Review: Going Deep

Prepare to be swept off your feet #bookreview Cady makes this story #mustread @annecalhoun
Going Deep by Anne Calhoun
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Prepare to be swept off your feet. Ms. Calhoun hits a home run for me in the latest book in her Alpha Ops series. This book can be read as a standalone. For a better feel of this world, reading the previous books in this series is recommended. This book features Cady Ward a rock star coming home for the holidays.

Lest a reader think that Conn McCormick is the character who will sweep us off our feet, let me correct this assumption immediately. It is Cady Ward aka Maud who charms and entices. Cady could be a snotty nosed rock star who deigns to talk to the little people from her hometown. Some believe her to be an overnight sensation. They would be wrong. Cady put in her time and learned from her experiences singing on street corners and at dive bars. She worked hard to achieve her success. Better yet, she never forgot her roots. She is grounded a…
