Welcome to the blog! This is my informal review page for the books that I read. This blog reviews content that might not be appropriate for all ages, AKA if you’re under 18, you best find another romance book review blog! So, now that you know this is NSFW, feel free to continue!
After two years of silence, I believe that I am getting back into this blog. I was working so hard on it, that it became a job, rather than the fun that it should have been. So now, I am going to only review books that I want and I am currently not going to be taking submissions from authors for review. I don’t want to let anyone down and I don’t want to burn myself out.
Just a quick notice here regarding the type of books that I have been reading. I tried to balance the genres that I reviewed, from female/male to male/male in deference to the readers. But I have found since April 2012 that most of the books I read were male/male. I finally decided that for now, most of the reviews will be on male/male, because that is what I have been reading and whose authors are moving me to write.
So, if that is not the genre of books that you read, then you might not get a lot out of my current posts. But really, I review books for what they give to me, and that is all about character development and plot. I have also noticed that my recent review requests have been on the darker side, with heavy non-con BDSM, rape, etc. While I do enjoy reading BDSM novels, I am looking for consensual, happy romance endings.
I also want to note that while I do try not to spoil anything in a book, I do talk about character development and book theme here. There is really no true way of writing about those aspects and not giving away something. I do try to outright not spoil anything major, but caveat emptor.
When I was in high school, I started reading authors like Johanna Lindsey, Julie Garwood, and Jude Deveraux. I also ran through the Harlequin series books like water. I can remember my summers in college just checking out 30 of those and reading them in a weekend. Ahh the days when I had no responsibilities!
As I grew up I found my interests changing and I moved onto more paranormal authors like Feehan or Kenyon. My interests range from mainstream to erotica. So be aware that my reviews might have material that is not appropriate for all ages. Heck, my brain is definitely an 18+ brain.
I admit, I hate books that don’t have a happy ending and while I might read it once, I’ll most likely not read it again. Which is a bit like my movies, I can’t ever watch Moulin Rouge again. I guess for me, these books are about escaping from real life and everything being overcome by our heroes. I like my HEA endings.
So this is a place where I can talk about the series and individual books. I’ll tell you why I liked a book, or why I didn’t. I will try to not do many spoilers, but sometimes I have no choice. Check out the series landing pages first, there will be no spoilers there. Recently I have been reading more Male/Male romances, so if that offends you, this might not be the blog for you. For me, sexual orientation does not hamper my enjoyment of a love story. After all, shouldn’t a love story be about love, not which door the characters walk into when they use the public toilet?
Special Note: These reviews are my opinion, whether an advance copy from the author or one I purchased. I do often put links to the author’s page or to Amazon. Please note I am not endorsing Amazon (or any other place) over any other book provider, but simply providing a means to see the book description. I gain nothing by providing the link. Other than book covers (not mine), all pictures are mine.
