    Demons Do It Better (Hidden Species #1) by Louisa Masters

    Wow. This was just an amazingly fun and endearing story. I just loved it. And I knew I’d love it from the very first page, and I’m not just saying that to try to make a point. In the first chapter, I highlighted 5 different sections. For me, that’s practically unheard of. So yes. This was definitely a 5-star read to me. Synopsis: Sam is just a regular (sort of) guy, working as an office admin. But being bored out of his mind with his current job, he’s applied to a new admin position at a place that in the ad guarantees adventure. As it turns out, it’s at the…

    White Trash Warlock by David R. Slayton

    This book was a surprise of the very best kind and I’m in absolute awe of the world-building. It’s hands down the most original story I’ve read in a long time. It’s gritty and harsh, but at the same time it’s all magic and limitless possibilities. It’s not often I get the feeling of stepping into a whole new universe when immersing myself in a story. Sure, each book is a small world of its own, but the imperative word there is small. And there’s nothing small about White Trash Warlock. Synopsis: Years earlier, Adam Binder’s brother locked him up in a psych ward because of his visions. But now…

    Stray (Fennys Den College #1) by Crystel Greene

    I read this the other day when I needed a quick fix of M/M, Alpha-Omega naughtiness. More specifically, Stray is a non-shifter, fake mate, alpha-omega, gay romance. And what’s even more, it’s in an mpreg universe even if that feature isn’t actually on-page. M/M shifter stories are absolutely one of my guilty pleasures, but I find that the non-shifter variety with just the Alpha-Omega dynamics works just as well. And boy, did Stray work well! Synopsis: At an all Were(wolf) College, Alphas and Omegas are – apparently very progressively – now allowed to attend the same classes. Aryn, an Alpha who needs a pretend mate, decides to approach an Omega…

    Beneath The Surface by Alainna MacPherson

    Coming July 31st This is a dystopian romance where an alien guy and a human woman get it on against all odds. It’s an alright story with an interesting premise, but unfortunately there were many small mistakes and plotholes that ruined my overall enjoyment. Blurb: An alien race has invaded earth, supposedly to help humans against another alien threat. But in the process they’ve enslaved the entire human race, using them as their inferior workforce. Annabeth is a young woman working in an alien mine when a new alien soldier arrives to supervise the miners. And, of course, Annabeth and the alien Soldier, Marken, are instantly drawn to each other.…

    The Enforcer Enigma (San Andreas Shifters #3) by Gail Carriger

    Coming August 1st I’ve been waiting (very impatiently I might add) for The Enforcer Enigma ever since I discovered this series earlier this year. Because it has all the best things rolled into one delicious package. There’s sparkle, fabulously quirky characters, snark for days and werewolves doing naughty, indecent things. So, yes. It’s awesome. And The Enforcer Enigma didn’t disappoint. It has all those things I loved about the first two installments and more. There are outrageous and fabulous characters of all genders (okay, mostly male. This is an M/M romance after all). There’s banter and snark. And there’s a lovestory unfolding in parallel with a plot including stolen goods…

    Defy or Defend (Delightfully Deadly #2) by Gail Carriger

    Defy or Defend is a romantic comedy set in Gail Carriger’s paranormal, steam-punk Parasolverse and it’s as charmingly whimsical as all of her books. It’s a through-and-through feel-good read that had me smiling from start to finish. The dry humor is to die for. And it was exactly what I needed now when it seems like the whole world is going to shit. However, I was a bit hesitant about this book at first. This is a spin-off from the Finishing School series and follows Dimity Plumleigh-Teignmott, a.k.a. Honey Bee, as a grown-up, working as a spy for the War Office. As Finishing School is a YA series, I ended…

    The Lightning-Struck Heart by T.J. Klune

    Well, eff me sideways, I wasn’t expecting this! The blurb did in no way prepare me for the awesomeness that is The Lightning-Struck Heart. It was the reviews, the never-ending recommendations and the author that made me click on the Buy now button. That and the credit on my Audible account. Because I’ve been listening my way through this kick-ass story. I don’t tend to gush. But some stories frankly deserve gushing, and this is undoubtedly one of them. However, I wasn’t immediately sucked into the story. Klune’s writing-style takes some getting used to and during the first chapter I was also wondering if I’d accidentally started listening to one…

    Blood Truth by J. R. Ward

    Blood Truth is the fourth and latest book in the Black Dagger Legacy series. It’s vampire romance with very little focus on blood-sucking. And I looove this book universe. I love both the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and the Legacy one. I’m hooked om Ward’s vampire world and I think anyone reading Blood Truth is too. Because this just isn’t a stand-alone. Either you’re a committed Ward vampire-fan and have read them all, or you haven’t read any of them. There’s no in between. Blood Truth is the book about Boone, a soldier in the Black Dagger Brotherhood ‘s training program, and Helania who’s trying to find her sister’s killer.…

    The Prince and the Omega by Penelope Peters

    This is a sweet little story in a non-shifter, alpha-omega, mpreg universe. It’s a freebie I received in return for an honest review. From the title, you can tell there’s royalty and, what’s even more, there are castles and arranged marriages too. So it’s basically an M/M fairytale for adults. It’s about the Omega Rowan and prince Gaspar (Gus for short) who meet at a royal ball and promptly fall into bed. Rowan doesn’t know that Gus is the prince who’s about to become engaged to his best friend. But neither Gus nor Rowan expected there to be more than physical attraction. Or a very tangible reminder of their night…

    Freebie-smut by L.A. Witt, Melissa Blue and Hannah L. Corrie

    I got a hold of a whole bunch of freebies a while ago, so I figured I’d do some quickie reviews of those. Blood From a Stoner by L.A. Witt This story is actually pretty much what you’d imagine from a book called Blood From a Stoner. It’s about a vampire named Greg (yes, Greg) who gets accidentally stoned by sucking blood from – yes, you guessed it – a stoner. Said stoner, Zane, is the mortal who also happens to be the colleague who Greg’s had a crush on for ages. And yes, that’s the start of sucking more than just blood. Pros: It’s a really fresh take on…
