Review: Glutton for Pleasure by Alisha Rai

The GingerSnap’s review I’ve been wanting to read Alisha Rai’s back catalogue of books for a while, and LiatoF’s Reverse Harem Month gave me the perfect opportunity to read this, her first book. When I read the introduction to the book and realised it was about two brothers falling in love with the same girl, I was intrigued, but wary. I’m all for reverse harem and menage romances, but haven’t read any involving family members due to my fear that the book would involve incest. I should’ve kept my faith in Alisha, however, because she managed to build a believable, incest-free, crazy-hot romance between Devi and brothers Jace and Marcus that had me nearly fanning myself at certain points of the book. Devi Malik is the head chef at her parent’s family-owned Indian restaurant, and after a serious romantic dry spell, her sister decides it’s time to spice up Devi’s […]

Review: Wilde in Love by Eloisa James

The GingerSnap’s review I think of Eloisa James as one of the queens of the regency romance genre, which also happens to be my all-time favourite romance sub-genre, so you can bet I was excited to pick up her latest book. The story follows the romance between Willa, a society darling just finishing her first very successful season, and Alaric, an adventurous aristocrat just back from travelling around the world. Alaric is a famous author whose travels have been made into a bawdy play that has made much of his intrepid and supposedly rather rakish nature, which leads Willa to be cautious in her interactions with him. One thing I loved about this book was the role reversal; Alaric is the emotive, passionate character, while Willa is cautious, reserved, and cerebral, completely dismantling the idea that women have to be the emotional partner in a relationship. I also loved that Willa […]

Review: The Bollywood Bride by Sonali Dev

The GingerSnap’s review I was so excited to read this book. My experience with Sonali Dev novels thus far has taught me that if I’m going to read one, it’s best to do it on a day/s when I don’t have a lot planned, because there is no way I’m going to get anything done with my attention so completely focused on her story. This story was in keeping with that theme; I didn’t even notice my train had arrived at my stop because I was so gripped! This book tells us the second chance romance story of Ria and Vikram, two childhood sweethearts who are seeing each other for the first time in 10 years at their friend’s wedding. Much has happened to change both of them for better and worse, but the chemistry between them ignites the moment they lock eyes on each other again, and that sexual […]
