    Something Wicked by Robin Moray

    This is truly a little gem. Quick, super sweet and with an unpredictable (in most ways) plot containing witches, a warlock and a witch-hunter. It might be the ultimate enemies-to-lovers scenario; Kevin is a witch – albeit a very weak one – and Peter is the witch-hunter who arrives in Kevin’s hometown hunting for a witch who murdered his mentor. And they are immediately drawn to each other. Peter thinks all witches are evil, but Kevin can’t stay away. He doesn’t really even want to. Meanwhile, Kevin’s siblings (a.k.a. his coven) is trying to find the warlock who appears to kill other witches within their territory. With all the magic…

    Prince’s Master (Calluvia’s Royalty #4) by Alessandra Hazard

    For quite a while, I really thought Hazard had blown it with this book. The story didn’t sweep me away in the same way the first three books did. But it’s worth hanging in there, it really is. Synopsis: Eridan was rescued as a child from an assassination attempt and has been raised in High Hronthar by an order of telepathic monks. He’s unaware of his true identity as the second prince of the Fifth Grand Clan. He only knows that he’s been claimed as an apprentice by the most powerful man in the Order, Castien Idhron. Castien doesn’t deal in feelings. He’s manipulative, without scruples and he will use…

    King & Queen (RELIC #3) by Maz Maddox

    Release date: May 21st This was such a delightful read! Without a doubt the best RELIC so far. It had everything. Fun, engaging characters? Check. Fast paced action involving fossil thieves and dino-nappers? Check. Quirkiness galore, drag queens, and filthy shenanigans? Check, check, and check. Synopsis: As a member of RELIC, Royal the dinosaur shifter is sent to check out a new fossil excavation, in the event of a new shifter being awakened from hibernation. Blaise is visiting the site for entirely different reasons involving a camera and a live stream. Neither of them expected to stumble upon fossil thieves. Or being chased by an angry Giganotosaurus. It must be…

    Turnabout (Vino & Veritas #9) by Laurel Greer

    Release date: May 6th This story gave my all sorts of feels. An M/M, second chance romance, set in Sarina Bowen’s True North universe. It’s the story of Carter, who left small town life for a chance to prove himself, and Auden, the one who stayed behind. And even though the story alternates between the viewpoints of Auden and Carter respectively, to me, this was Carter’s story. So, when Carter’s father needs help with running his print-shop, Carter steps up, puts his life on hold and goes back home to do what he can. However, Carter’s ex, Auden, still works at said print-shop and neither of them have really gotten…

    Unguarded (Vino & Veritas #10) by Jay Hogan

    Release Date: May 6th My my! This book was a pure joy to read. It was the perfect combination of opposites-attract, warm and cosy, sizzling sexytimes and with just the right amount of adversity for the two MCs to overcome. Synopsis: There’s Tai, a displaced New Zealander, who’s left his cheating ex in a hurry and ended up in Burlington, Vermont. With only his crappy car and wearing some skimpy club clothes. In desperate need of a job, he’s lucky enough to get hired at the local vet clinic, run by the delicious (but probably straight) Emmett. Only the tension between Tai and Emmett suggests the sexy vet swings his…

    The Belle and the Beard by Kate Canterbary

    Release Date: April 23rd This is an extremely well-written and contemplative story. And, exactly as was the case with Canterbary’s previous book, the somewhat whimsical title doesn’t actually reflect the heaviness of the read. Because this is heavy reading even if it is a romance too. I’ve always admired Canterbary’s ability to precisely describe, with just a sentence or two, my own familiar yet unarticulated feelings. I guess that’s what many talented authors are about, but with her books it never fails, here and there I’d always had to pause at a few particularly insightful sentences just to take it all in. And I’m equally impressed each time. However, The…

    Bombshells (Brooklyn Bruisers #8) by Sarina Bowen

    Release date: April 13 As usual, I enjoyed the heck out of Sarina Bowen’s writing. And this was such an easy read. The story just pulled me in and I didn’t mind being swept away at all. I really, really liked the fact that Sylvie was a professional athlete. She was so strong and capable and trying to make a name for herself in a sport which is mostly viewed as a male one. That was beyond awesome. Synopsis: This is the story of Sylvie – a hockey goalie who’s earned a spot in a newly founded female hockey team in Brooklyn, and Anton – reformed player and also a…

    Heated Rivalry (Game Changers #2) by Rachel Reid

    I don’t know why I waited so long to read this book! It’s awesome! It’s a blazing hot roller-coaster ride with a beautiful ending. I love it. It’s the ultimate enemies-to-lovers story. Two hockey players, Shane and Ilya, are on rivalling teams and have been pitted against each other since they were drafted. They’re as different as can be, but their attraction is off the charts. And even though they don’t even like each other, they’re dynamite in the bedroom. And no one will ever find out, right? This is such a delicious read I’m beating myself up for not picking it up sooner. I mean, I’ve seen all the…

    Flipcup (Vino & Veritas #7) by Kim Hartfield

    Release Date: April 5th Full disclosure: This is my first F/F read. Like, ever. But when Flipcup was offered, my curiosity was piqued. And even if F/F romance had never been on my radar before, I thought I’d give it a shot. In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have, though. Synopsis: This is the story about Tara, a former foster-kid who left Boston for a fresh start in Burlington, Vermont, and Chelsea whose biggest problem in life is to get – and keep – a boyfriend. These women couldn’t be more different. Which may be why they were drawn to each other in the first place. Chelsea has sworn off men…

    Undercover (Vino & Veritas #4) by Eliot Grayson

    Release Date: March 29 I’m actually surprised how much I liked this book! Two vastly different guys that start out their relationship based on lies but despite that manage to turn it into the real thing in the end. A very delightful read indeed! Synopsis: Alec is an undercover FBI agent tasked with trying to crack a case involving drugs being smuggled into the US in yoga-mats (yes, totally ridiculous, right? But all the yoga-bashing in the book totally made up for it!). Gabe is a rich twink who’s adrift after being kicked out of grad school. After Gabe inadvertently rouses Alec’s suspicions (among other things), Alec realizes that Gabe…
