Daily Grind

Ground N’At is the kind of coffee shop I dream of.  Great drinks, comfortable surroundings, independently owned.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t exist where I live, but Ms. Zabo does an excellent job casting it as the third major character in the entertaining, if a bit too predictable, Daily Grind. ...

The Gentleman's Madness

The Gentleman’s Madness has an incredibly gripping hook. One of the heroes is in a mental asylum because he’s gay, and the other is an attendant there. I don’t usually read ebooks, but I bought this one (and downloaded the software to access it) because after reading the synopsis, I had to fin ...

Half

I am loathe to call Eli Lang’s Half an urban fantasy as for me, this always conjures up scenes of gritty violence and dystopian futures, and Half could not be more different.  In fact, I might have enjoyed a little gritty violence. So I’m going to say that it’s a standalone novel set in the c ...

Guarding Mr. Fine

Guarding Mr Fine is the third in HelenKay Dimon’s Tough Love romantic suspense series and unlike the first two can be read as a stand-alone title. Several characters from the first two books do make cameo appearances, but that doesn’t really affect this novel. Seth Lang is a modern alpha male ...

The Lawrence Browne Affair

Writing is a very personal endeavor, and every author leaves pieces of herself on the pages of her books. An exceptional novel will make you believe you’ve met its author, and I feel like I know Cat Sebastian a little after reading The Lawrence Browne Affair. There’s an emotional depth and compl ...

Rogue Magic

What a wonderful début from Kit Brisby Rogue Magic is. This is an exciting thought provoking novel and at 328 pages there is time to really get absorbed in the alternate universe and the story. This is an America that has outlawed magic and oppresses those born with magical powers. Such people a ...

Wanted, A Gentleman

K.J. Charles never disappoints. Sometimes, as with the wonderful Society of Gentlemen series this author exceeds expectations, but she never disappoints. Wanted A Gentleman is a perfect read with which to start 2017. Curl up in a chair and let her unfold this story for your delight. It involves a ...

Off Base

Annabeth Albert is an author who first came to my attention with her Portland Heat series, centered around small shop owners of assorted varieties, and her #gaymer series which features a video game company. The last #gaymers book, Connection Error, featured a Navy SEAL (Ryan) and this new series Ou ...

Wolfsong

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of reviewing The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.  I loved it and recommended it to everyone I know.  Since then, I was certain - convinced really - that no other book could or would top my best of list for 2016 (though Cat Sebastian’s The Soldier’s Scoundrel c ...

Glass Tidings

I have to say that I am not a great fan of Holiday romances, as they are usually full of ridiculous coincidences and enough sweetness to induce a diabetic coma. But in this lovely, well written Christmas romance, Amy Jo Cousins keeps the story and the characters the right side of realism and cynicis ...
