Review: Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey

The Faerie Queen’s review Boy, was this an excellent Christmas present to warm me up on a dreary British day. To help you understand what I mean… “If I ever feel your fingers in my hair again, they’d better be pulling my face closer to whatever I’m licking.” Our hero, Sarge, has been crushing on his sister’s best friend since hormones flooded his body, and after running off to make it as a rockstar, he returns four years later to reconnect with his family…and hopefully “connect” with Jasmine. And boy, did Sarge make his intentions clear, toeing the line between too much. This is one of those cases where an alpha male acting up in a book is hot as hell but would not go down well with me in real life. “You’re so arrogant now,” she whispered on a huffed breath, unable to put the required exasperation in her […]

Review: Christmas with a Bite by Patricia A. Wolf

Review: Christmas with a Bite by Patricia A. Wolf

The Faerie Queen’s review My two sentence review: This started really well!!!!!!!!! And then it became increasingly bewildering… Basically, this book was nearly impossible for me to give a rating for. On the one hand, the plot got weirder the further along I read, with far too much convenience with some things. (“Oh hi, this thing exists that you’ve never heard of in your centuries of being alive and guess what? We have it!”) On the other, I did actually enjoy reading it. If anything, the outlandishness of some things made it more fun with the addition of a friend I could go WTF to in DMs. The romance itself is hard for me to judge. I liked it and I didn’t. It started with some fun, a nice building tension with banter and boardgames. But then it escalated, with professions of love in a matter of days. It was bizarre […]

Excerpt: One and Done by Melynda Price

Excerpt: One and Done by Melynda Price

Happy release day to One and Done by Melynda Price! We have an excerpt and a giveaway to get you excited about this new holiday getaway romance! About the book Excerpt “Balen, are you homeless?” His brow arched. Autumn wasn’t sure why he looked so surprised she asked. It wasn’t a very far leap. The writing was on the wall—his friend making that crack about him being a jobless beach bum, him volunteering to spend the week with her…and now here he was, needing a place to say. She wasn’t an idiot. One plus one usually equaled two. Balen studied her until the tension in the room grew stifling. “Is my socioeconomic status an issue for you? You’ve got the spare room and I happen to be in need of one for the next week. I thought… Look, if staying with you is going to be a problem, I can leave.” […]

Excerpt: A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North

Heya! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Melody watched him walk away beneath her damp lashes. She’d never really paid much attention to Daveed before. He’d been one of Heath’s friends and always hanging around the periphery of their group, but had sort of kept to himself. Now, though, he’d come to her aid in her hour of need—or more like day of desperation—and a girl couldn’t ignore such chivalry. As the silence between them grew more awkward by the second, she got up and wandered over to the table, which was covered by papers and post-it notes. Daveed didn’t look up at her at all, so she finally pulled out a chair and sat, forcing a tremulous smile. “What are […]

Review: The Twelve Days of Seduction by Eva Devon

Review: The Twelve Days of Seduction by Eva Devon

The Faerie Queen’s review This novella was a surprisingly good read! It started out a bit weird, but then I got into it. At 120 pages, it’s very quick, and as you can imagine, things don’t get as developed as they could. I could have actually read a full version of this, but then I also loved how easy it was to get through. I could just enjoy it without getting too bogged down. I was also not feeling too great when I started it, but because it was quick and light, it was a great pick-me-up. The story is told over twelve chapters and swaps narration between Adriana, a “governess”, and Alexander, a duke. Adriana is quite scrappy but very caring underneath it all, while Alexander is your typical brooding hero. After discovering that Adriana isn’t who she says she is, Alexander threatens to throw her out on Christmas […]

Review: A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe

Review: A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe

The Faerie Queen’s review Waaay at the start of this year, I reviewed Some Kind of Magic, starring scientist Eden and down-to-earth rockstar Adam. I was pretty excited when the author reached out and asked if I wanted to read the next book in the series. This time, the focus was on Eden’s musician brother and a photographer looking to make a name for herself. One of the minor niggles I had with the first book was that, despite showing a great relationship, it didn’t have quite enough sizzle for my tastes. I went into book two hoping that, given how much of a flirt Micah is, this book would hit the spot. Our two leads are Jo, a photographer working to make it as a paparazza, and Micah, Eden’s brother and rockstar with a string of casual relationships. Micah showed how he was the less cynical of the two by […]

Excerpt: Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

The holidays are slowly starting to creep up on us. I know that I, for one, like to read a few holiday-themed books, especially right around Christmas. If you’re anything like me, you might be on the prowl for some new reads, and I’ve got one for you. Today, you can try a taster from Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis! First, here’s a bit more about the book. About the book Excerpt At the empathetic tone in Sean’s voice, Lotti’s heart and stomach and head all clenched in unison. “What do you mean you can’t give me what I want?” she asked. “All you have to do is walk away.” “Tried that already,” he said. “And it was the biggest mistake of my life.” He brought her hand up to his mouth and met her gaze over their entwined hands. He was looking at her like . . . well, she wasn’t sure what was […]

Review: Ready for Wild by Liora Blake

Review: Ready for Wild by Liora Blake

The Faerie Queen’s review Nothing like a book to expand your mind past the stereotypes and beliefs you had for another kind of life. That’s one of my favourite things about reading: exploring other people’s lives and trying out new ways of thinking. And that’s what happened in this book. Much like Braden had to face his contempt for TV shows featuring hunting, I had to face my issues with hunting itself. I mean, Bambi, guys. Luckily, this book was written in such a way that I was hooked on the characters and their attraction, enough to distract me from the fact that they enjoyed killing things. But more than that, it showed me that while there are idiots who go around doing it irresponsibly, there are people who go hunting for the challenge, and who don’t do it just to hang up trophies but actually use the animal for […]
