    Principles of Spookology (The Spectral Files #2) by S.E. Harmon

    S.E. Harmon never disappoints. Sure, I griped a bit about #1 of The Spectral Files, but I really didn’t have any other choice than to continue with the series. Because despite some of my reservations, I craved more. Synopsis: Rain’s back as a detective at the BBPD, in the newly founded PTU – the paranormal tactical unit. His ghost-whispering is supposed to help solve cold cases. But he can’t control his abilities and the ghosts appear to be getting stronger, now they’re even invading his dreams. And Rain can’t help to think Danny will get tired of constant ghostly interruptions – in and out of bed. Then a case they’re…

    P.S. I Spook You (The Spectral Files #1) by S.E. Harmon

    This is a great story with some really unfortunate mistakes that should have been caught by a proof-reader. So I’m conflicted as hell about how to rate this one. I’ve read several of Harmon’s books and she’s the author of one of my all-time, favourite stories, the Rules of Possession duet; The Blueprint and A Deeper Blue. And no matter the storyline, her writing has always been top-notch. And yes, P.S. I Spook You is also high quality. It has a skillfully constructed story structure, the overall writing is great, the premise of the story is awesome and the plot development is too. But it’s also a suspense/detective story where…

    Cry Wolf (Big Bad Wolf #5) by Charlie Adhara

    Right now, I’m feeling sort of numb and a bit lost. Book hangover doesn’t begin to describe how I’m feeling. It’ll probably be a year until the next installment in this series is released and I won’t know what to do with myself in the meantime. So yeah. This was a spectacular story. And right now, when I’m in the process of returning to reality, Cry Wolf feels like the best in the series yet. With some time and a bit of distance I might re-assess, but considering I re-read the first four books in preparation for the Cry Wolf release, it’s not likely. Synopsis: Cooper and Park are supposed…

    Grumpy Bear (Bear Camp #1) by Slade James

    Release Date: January 28th This is an honest to God gem! I can’t remember the last time I was so pleasantly surprised by a book. Not only is Grumpy Bear a super sweet story that gave me all the warm fuzzies, but it’s also extremely well written. And the detail and authentic feel of the story setting was damn impressive. This is an M/M, sunshine-grump, hurt-comfort, hairy Bear kind of romance. And yes, it is a romance even if the title and blurb might imply something smuttier … such as orgies in the woods. Synopsis: Coleman Sawyer is the epitome of a grumpy Bear. He’s also the owner of a…

    Meet Cute: The Hedgehog Incident (The Parasol Protectorate 0.75) by Gail Carriger

    I loooved this little novella! It’s the story of the first meeting between Alexia Tarabotti – preternatural – and Lord Conall Maccon – werewolf Alpha of the London pack. It’s delicious and hilarious, and even covered some of the overlap with the Finishing School series. The hedgehog incident has been mentioned previously in the PP-series and I was delighted to read the details now. Apart from hedgehogs, there’s also a grumpy and accidentally naked werewolf, and of course our heroine Alexia who gets an eyeful of well-muscled werewolf buttocks. So, this is a read for Parasol Protectorate lovers. Sure, I guess you could start with this story before diving into…

    The Cardigans (Criminal Intentions: Season One #1) by Cole McCade

    Sooo close to getting a 5-star rating! But The Cardigans sort of stumbled on the finish line and got bumped down to a 4 instead, with me not even knowing if I’d like to continue with the rest of the series/season. I’ll get back to why in a bit. The format of Criminal Intentions is a bit different than a usual book series. It’s more like a tv-series in that there are more episodes and the main characters – their history, personalities and what makes them tick – are presented to the reader in smaller increments. Meaning there’s more room in each episode to focus on the plot and keep…

    Totally Trucked (The Men of Bear Springs #1) by BJ Blakely

    First off, I need to say that this wasn’t my kind of read. At all. When reading the blurb, I thought it sounded interesting, but I quickly discovered where me limits were. But I don’t judge. To each their own and all that. And I’m certain there are tons of people who’d think Totally Trucked is hot as hell. Unfortunately, I didn’t though. So I’m obviously not the target reader of this story. Anyways. This is about Jax the trucker, and Logan the twink who works at a truck stop diner. And these guys meet through a glory-hole in a public restroom. It’s dirty. In every sense of the word.…

    Soulmates by Liv Rancourt

    Release date: January 14th This story was definitely a grower. It took a while, but the more I read, the more intrigued and delighted I became. Also, it’s probably the most believably organic formation of a threesome I’ve ever encountered. Kudos to Rancourt! Synopsis: Trajan is a 175 year old vampire on the verge of committing suicide by sun due to grief over his dead lover Connor. But when he is tasked by his sire to keep a young alpha werewolf safe for a week, he’s instantly distracted from his dark thoughts. Not only is David an outrageous and unapologetic twink just looking for some fun, but almost as soon…

    Acquainted With the Night by Lesli Richardson

    This book was a bit of a mind-f***. And I’m super conflicted as to whether it’s brilliant or just seedy. What I am sure about, though, is that it’s not for everyone. Because it’s basically gay, alien porn, and yet, it’s… not. Sure, there’s more or less non-stop boning throughout the book but it’s also kind of sweet. And I cried rivers at the end. So you see, tricky. Synopsis: Dale was drafted to fight in the war against the alien Algonquans. When he’s captured he has no idea what to expect. However, he soon realize that nothing that the Earth government has told him about the Algonquans are true.…

    Heat for Sale by Blake Moreno (a.k.a. Leta Blake)

    Wowza! This was a super steamy, omegaverse story with all that juicy goodness A/B/O reads usually contains; heats (obviously), knotting, mpreg, insatiable lust, and some interesting hormonal aspects of alpha and omega biology. Dominant alphas and submissive omegas are HOT. M/M erotica at its best. Just awesome. Synopsis: Adrien is an omega about to start his first heat, and without a family to help or the finances to manage on his own, he does what most other omegas do – he offers up his virgin heat in an online auction. Heath is an older, wealthy alpha who lost the love of his life many years ago. But when he discovers…
