Review & Giveaway: Game All Night by Lauren Helms

The Faerie Queen’s review Link and Ruby finally have their story. All that bickering is coming to fruition. Hallelujah. Do you know when you can see a car wreck coming, and time slows down? You can’t look away? That’s what reading this book was like. In a good way of course. But also a sort of terrible, angsty way. You see, both Link and Ruby are dating other people at the start of this book, and both of those relationships are not ideal. Link, on the one hand, is with someone only superficially interested in him. That’s easy enough to understand, right? He wants Amber because he doesn’t want anything serious. (Also, he totally wants Ruby from the beginning, let’s not kid ourselves.) And she wants Link (or should I say, “Lincoln”) because he’s rich and famous. Whatever. I get it. I won’t judge. What’s harder for me not to […]

Review, Excerpt, Playlist, & Giveaway: Feels Like Falling by Elle Keating

The Faerie Queen’s review Well that was a lot more angsty and messed up than I was expecting. Before I get started, this book comes with a massive trigger warning – and I don’t care if this is spoilery because it needs to be – for child abuse and rape. The instances are described and explored in enough detail to (hopefully) make the most sheltered, blessed-with-a-perfect-life reader squirm uncomfortably. That being said, I did enjoy reading this book. Enjoy doesn’t really feel like the right word, actually… I felt compelled to read it is probably more appropriate. Even with all the darker parts bringing things down, I needed to know that Luke and Peyton made it through ok. Luckily, the connection between them was strong, the heat palpable. While a lot of scenes upset me, there were plenty that made me feel uncomfortable…in a good way. A few things did […]

Review & First Chapter: I Bet You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review & First Chapter: I Bet You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

The Faerie Queen’s review First thing’s first, this book is clearly dedicated to me. You can read the dedication in the Amazon preview, and there you will find a description of me. Second, this gif basically sums up my expression over and over during this book. Here are just a few of my creepy grin triggers… Being a romance novel, the most important aspect is the relationship between the hero and heroine. Well, this book had me on edge. The chemistry. It was insane. And they didn’t dooooo anythinnnnggggg for ages except stare at each other and have intense silences and sparks and uuuughhhhh. My heart. Every time I thought they’d actually act on the very palpable attraction, they’d Do The Right Thing. Ryker was a damn boy scout, really. Even when he messed up, he was quick to apologise and try to make things right. Aside from The Secret, they were […]

First Chapter & Giveaway: Hush by A.M. Salinger

Happy Hump Day! 😉 And happy release week to Hush by A.M. Salinger! Get started with this steamy novella down below because I’ve got the first chapter for you! Plus, you could win an Amazon gift card and signed paperbacks of the book. About the book Chapter 1 Lana Keele stirred and slowly blinked her eyes open. Searing light filled her vision. She winced and twisted her head, a mumbled curse tumbling past her lips. A wave of dizziness swept over her; her stomach clenched painfully. Lana froze and swallowed the rush of bile shooting up her throat. Hot daggers stabbed at her temples. She moaned softly. It was a moment before she realized she was lying on her front on a bed. She stared blearily at the crisp white pillow in her line of sight before rolling over carefully onto her side. She studied the room she was in with […]

Excerpt: Player by Staci Hart

I’m in the middle of reading Piece of Work starring Rin, and I am loving it. Seriously. I’ll have a review up for you guys soon. In the meantime, the next book in the collection was released a few days ago, and I’m here to tease you with an excerpt, this time featuring Rin’s friend Val! So sit back and enjoy a little piece of Player by Staci Hart. About the book Excerpt The night flew by, time speeding up and sliding past with nothing to mark the hours but his laughter and my smiles and our bodies bouncing around the parquet like we had nothing in the world to do but dance. I had no idea how late it was until “New York, New York” came on with the house lights. Sam hooked me under his arm and guided me out into the chilly fall evening. Like an idiot, I’d come […]

Exiting the car with their supper in hand, he waited for Paris to park and he met Donella’s gaze through the front windscreen. With her hair pulled back and a smile on her lips, she was bloody beautiful. Donella jumped out and tried to casually stroll over to him. Biting back a smile, he said, “You’re late.” He took in her […]

Excerpt: Dream by Carly Phillips

Hey readers, I am so tired today. I made the mistake of starting to watch Mean Girls last night at 11pm, so I only got a little more than 5 hours of sleep last night. I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. Anyway, today I’m excited to share a little piece of Dream by Carly Phillips! This new second-chance romance is releasing on October 16, but preorder links are ready for you. 😉 About the book Excerpt “I didn’t mean to drag you away from Kimberly. You two seemed to be hitting it off.” He didn’t pull his hand away from her face, struck by the tinge of something in her voice. Jealousy? And if so, why did it please him that she cared? “Kimberly was like a leech who wouldn’t let go. She even used her sick brother’s story to hang on to me. I wasn’t doing anything […]

Review & Excerpt: Hot for His Girl by Rachel Blaufeld

The Faerie Queen’s review When I first learned about this book, I knew I needed to Get My Hands On It. A romance between two bloggers? Hell. Yeah. In what universe would I not want to read this??? (And then to learn the author is a mom and blogger, like the heroine? It means this book is going to be authentic af. Well, as authentic as a romance novel can be.) READERS. Nothing prepared me for the perfection that is Reid. As a recently single person considering what I want in my next relationship, I think all future prospects have been ruined by Reid. He’s kind, considerate, intelligent, caring, funny, romantic, hot af… He’s completely accepting of the fact that Andi is a single mom with lots of responsibilities. He can cook – or grill – and well. He’s looking for a real, meaningful relationship. He is a blogger and understands the work that […]

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

Review & Excerpt: The Evolution of Man by Skye Warren

The Faerie Queen’s review You can read my review for the first book, Survival of the Richest, here, but below are the main points: The complexity of the relationships between the main characters was incredible. I couldn’t untangle the love triangle. The chemistry between all three was intense. Money was a massively toxic influence in everyone’s lives. Well, dear readers, The Evolution of Man was thankfully great for all the same reasons. I really felt for Harper. In the first book, she lost her father to a sudden heart attack. In this book, she must sit back and watch as her mother succumbs to late-stage cancer, too late for treatment if her mother even wanted it. There is so much pain in this book, and really, the whole book is about her dealing with it in various ways. First and foremost, she seeks out physical distractions from the two men her in love/lust […]
