Review: His Peace Her Pleasure by Keke Renee

The GingerSnap’s review Feminists, do not read this book. I repeat, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. There are so many wonderful books out there. Read one of them instead. Why shouldn’t you read this book? Let us start with a list of all its faults. 1. An emotionally manipulative alpha hero with abusive tendencies. Santiago Garcia, the main male character (I’m not going to call him a hero because he in no way has any heroic tendencies whatsofuckingever), is an asshole. And not just any asshole, but an asshole who thinks that he is the only person who should see, speak to and be around Peaches Ellison, the heroine, because she’s his. Every chapter from his point of view actually made me feel a bit physically ill, because it reminded me that oh yeah, men like this exist. But they shouldn’t exist in romance, unless they’re getting a serious feminist […]

Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway: Lera of Lunos by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review The series is now over! Last year, I discovered reverse harem, and one that stood out to me was Alex Lidell’s Power of Five. You can read my reviews of Power of Five, Mistake of Magic, and Trial of Three to see how this series kept delivering just what I wanted! And not just beautiful, colourful covers. Remember when the trials were Lera’s biggest problem? Well, the final trial was nothing in comparison to the real struggle introduced in Trial of Three. There were basically two tense plot scenes: the final trial in the first quarter and the showdown at the end. I honestly had no idea how that final showdown would work out, and I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out, even though one point was a bit …convenient. (I have questions, m’kay.) You’re probably then wondering what was going on in the middle of those […]

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 & 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 […]

Review: A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

The Faerie’s Queen review Before I get into my review, here were my reasons for reading this book: That gorgeous cover. I am obsessed with it. The fierce profile with the flames just work. I am nicknamed the Faerie Queen. This is for a reason. Because I love everything fae. Obvs. Forbidden love between a royal and a non-royal. What is a Hunter? Is this a human hunter? Is it a special sort of fae? So I had expectations, and I had questions. But here’s the thing… it didn’t work for me, and I could sense that pretty quickly. In fact, I DNF’d at 12%. Here’s why… First of all, this book should come with a handful of trigger warnings. It’s got murder, threats of rape, emotional abuse, and physical abuse all within the prologue and first chapter. There were also just so many inconsistencies and things that confused me. Why would […]

Review & Giveaway: Trial of Three by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review I am straight-up addicted to this series. Alex can’t write these stories fast enough. You can read my review of book 1 and book 2 if you need to see why. Let’s first talk about the plot, and then I’ll get to the boys, yeah? Well, this might be the most exciting of the series so far. I loved the first, and then the second was a little less thrilling, but things ramp up this time round. It’s been discovered that Lera is more powerful than anyone gave her credit for, but she has no control over that power, something crucial for her to survive the trials. But it’s no longer just the trials that she has to worry about, as danger from the outside – particularly Mors – is catching up on the new quint. And while there are hints of malice from the Lunos […]

Review: The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

Review: The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

The Faerie Queen’s review Charming princes weren’t always what they seemed. Shining armor went out of fashion with the Crusades. And if fairy godmothers existed, hers was running several years late. Most of the time, a girl needed to rescue herself. How you feel about books is often dictated by what you’re going through at the time of reading them. And I read this one while heartbroken. You see, the evening before I opened this up, my boyfriend and I made the horrible decision to break up. In so many ways, we were perfect for each other, but there was one thing that just kept coming back up. You’d think, after having my own heart destroyed, I wouldn’t be able to read a romance. I didn’t think I would be able to. And yet, I did read this. In fact, it was the only thing that could take my mind […]

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: A Taste of Pleasure by Chloe Blake

The Faerie Queen’s review Who loves food? Who loves Italian food? Because mmmmmmm. This book made me HUNGRY. For food… and for Toni. A Taste of Pleasure describes the way this book started off. Dani and Toni meet at their friends’ wedding, where Dani has done the catering and Toni has provided the wines. They have a night of pleasure – one they both need with their respective recent romantic experiences. Dani was in a weird sexual relationship with her boss, while Toni was just divorced from his wife (and mother of his daughter). The morning after their encounter, Dani sneaks away, not wanting any awkwardness. It’s not until a year later, when Dani’s career has blown up in her face (she catches the boss cheating, big surprise) and she takes a break with her mom in Milan, where she began her career has a chef. In a weird twist of fate, […]

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Mistake of Magic by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review YESSSS book 2 in the Power of Five series! I adored the first book, so I was psyched to read the second instalment. But also dead nervous because so many series that start well flop in the next book. In this book, the quint faces down the council, eager to break them one way or another. They must prove to the rest of the fae that Lera deserves to be there despite being human. Basically, that she is not, in fact, a mistake of magic. As with the first book, yes, this is a reverse harem romance, but it’s also a great fantasy story with an interesting world and lovable/detestable characters. I enjoyed seeing the inner workings of the Council, which was the main focus of this. But even more than that, I loved seeing all the men in Lera’s quint open up more and show other sides to […]

Review: Power of Five by Alex Lidell

The Faerie Queen’s review So you may have noticed my recent addiction to reverse harem romances. It really takes romance into the world of fantasy for me, entertaining this idea that I could have multiple gorgeous and interesting men all to myself. Add to that the fact that the men in Power of Five are fae and you’ve hooked me. There is a reason I call myself the Faerie Queen. I LOVE FAERIES. And I loved this book. As with all reverse harems, I could pinpoint the stereotypes that each guy played: the serious one, the playful one, the broken one, etc. But I was completely endeared to each and every one of them. They were each sexy and so warm in their own ways, though it took time for each to show this. Yes, ok, there was some insta-ness going on, given how magic had “chosen” them as a quint, […]
