The Hanged Man – Clarissa Wild

Wow. This novella was packed full of emotions in such a small package. From the first page, I was completely invested in the story. You also feel so much emotional turmoil from each of the main characters in their respective narrative; my heart was aching for these fictional people who were clearly still in love […]

Sunshine and Bullets – CoraLee June

You know those books that get under your skin in such a way that you swear you can feel the words etching themselves on your soul? That’s how I feel after reading Sunshine and Bullets. This was one of the most intense stories I’ve had the pleasure of reading. It was devastating and heartbreaking and sexy […]

Broken Compass by Jo Raven

Jo Raven is one of those authors that I’ll one-click without even reading the description. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since I read the first book in the Inked Brotherhood series several years ago (which is amazing–you should go read them!) and since I’ve been in a bit of a reverse harem kick […]

Soulless Nights – Virginia Johnson

**Trigger warning: themes of sexual abuse, sex trafficking and homelessness** BLURB Deep in the city, where we’ve been taught to avoid the dark corners and alleys, monsters lurk within the fragile cracks of our human emotions, waiting for the chance to break in. With the loss of his grandfather, William runs to the streets without […]

Ocean by Jo Raven

BLURB I thought I was a normal kid once. Do normal kids have to beg from door to door for food? Not sure. It wasn’t always that bad, I guess – and then it was. Really f***ing bad. I tried to protect my younger brother from the fallout. Lied to him about how bad things […]

Forgetting August – J. L. Berg

Oh. My. Freaking. Word. This was a book unlike any other I have ever read before. To be honest, my brain is absolutely reeling after finishing it—I can barely think apart from the story playing out in my head. The author is a genius for coming up with this storyline, and while there are a few […]

The Torment of Rachel Ames – A Novella by Jeff Gunhus

I should begin by being completely frank: the genre this book falls under is not my preferred genre in the least. While I love thrillers in the movie genre, I tend to gravitate more toward romances in the book genre. Yes, there is an underline of romance in this novella (and yes, I am woman […]

Sleepy Hollow: An Ingenius Retelling From Katrina’s Point of View

To be honest with you, I have very little knowledge of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, other than that of the infamous Headless Horseman and the names Ichabod Crane and Katrina Van Tassel. I knew bits and pieces of the story, mostly from Tim Burton’s take on the story in the 1999 film Sleepy […]

The Darkest Frost, Pt. 2

(Please keep in mind that this is the SEQUEL to The Darkest Frost, so if you haven’t read that, go BACK and READ IT NOW. Go ahead. I’ll wait…) Okay, did you read the first book? Good. Now grab a cup of coffee and settle in… 😉 Wow. After finishing the second (and final) installment […]
