    A Ferry of Bones & Gold (Soulbound #1) by Hailey Turner

    This is a quite overwhelming read. Not emotionally, it’s non-stop action after all, but with all the… everything! It gave me whiplash. Yet, so many aspects of this book was amazing. But. In the end, the overload and excessiveness of it all lowered my overall opinion of it. At first, I thought that Patrick was such a cliché. I mean, a world-weary, agent with an alcohol problem and a slight death-wish. In his early twenties, no less. But there was an explanation for all that. One that actually made sense. So kudos to Turner for that. And the world-building. It was spectacular and felt very unique to me, with the…

    Bell, Book and Scandal (Bedknobs and Broomsticks #3) by Josh Lanyon

    I love, love, love this series! As soon as the pre-ordered e-book appeared on my Kindle, I immediately gave up what I was doing and dove into this entirely wonderful, witchy world. It’s delightful and quirky in the best way possible. Cosmo and John have that infuriating dynamic going that is so addictive. At least the way Lanyon portrays it. I honestly don’t understand why I find it so fascinating really, but I do. The story is exclusively told from Cosmo’s point of view, while John is the one that holds most of the power in their relationship. This imbalance between them was there from the first book, but the…

    Hijinks With a Hellhound (Hidden Species #3) by Louisa Masters

    Release Date: March 25th Man, I love Alistair! He’s by far the most fun of all of the Hidden Species characters (so far). Like a big kid that doesn’t know the meaning of personal boundaries but with a heart of gold. So, of course I loved this book! I’ve waited for Alistair’s story ever since I read Demons Do It Better last year. So, to the story. It picks up right where #2 left off. And Alistair is assigned to accompany Aidan, the species’ leader to investigate the community where they believe Tisch is hiding with his followers. But Alistair resents Aidan because of the way he handled Sam’s first…

    Claw of Exile by J.K. Jones

    Release date: February 20 I’m super conflicted about this book. So this review will have two distinct parts; One where I praise the story, and one where I criticize the writing. I thought the premise for this book was amazing and I loved the storyline. I was sucked in from the very first page (it would be hard not to, it was a scene with Ryu getting railed by an unknown Alpha after all). And what’s even more, the plot held my interest to the very end. Which, quite frankly, is a minor miracle considering the quality of the writing. Anyway. Ryu is an omega, ostracized from his clan and…

    Primal Sin (Primal Sin #1) by Ariana Nash

    This story really sucked me in. I was immediately intrigued by the world, the post-apocalyptic feel of an alternative London. The angels, the demons, and everything in between. Captivating is an understatement. Synopsis: This is truly the ultimate enemies-to-lovers narrative. An angel and a demon. Mikhail, the Guardian Angel of London and Severn, a demon lord gone undercover as an angel in his quest for revenge. It’s a wild ride without a doubt. Severn is determined to avenge his dead lover, and to kill the angel that cut off Severn’s wings and left him mutilated and earth-bound. But the closer Severn gets to his enemy, the more conflicted are his…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…
