Buddy Read Review: Company Ink by Kat Colburn

The Faerie Queen’s review I felt terrible going on to Goodreads to leave my review of this book, since there seemed to be an overwhelming amount of love for the book there. I didn’t want to rock the boat too much. I’m just glad Emily and I were on the same page with this book, though I did make it to the end…kinda. Apparently this book is 247 pages in print, but it felt much longer and slower. So slow that I reached page 74, got frustrated, and skipped to page 200. I wanted to love it all considering the main character was named Dani, was a techie, and didn’t like when people lie. She felt stuck in her job, and she hated how sales was prioritised over customer service. She was basically me. In so many ways. (Just to reassure you, I do like my job, but everywhere I work, sales always trumps […]

Review: See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson

Review: See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson

The GingerSnap’s review This book was published in 2003. 2003 might have been a long time ago, but I’m of the opinion that however far back in history we go, toxic masculinity, the derogatory use of the word “pussy” and the phrase “like a girl”, jokes about sexual harassment, blaming men’s inappropriate actions on women’s clothing choices, and the categorisation of women as either “smart” OR “pretty” are never okay. This book had it all going for it: Jane is a journalist (who also writes erotica!!) who gets assigned to cover the local Seattle hockey team, and despite the team’s collective attempts to box her out because, in their opinion, she has no place in their crew, she manages to not only win them over, but she also excels at covering their games. Luc is the hot, aloof team goalie that initially treats Jane with malice, but the more time […]

Review & Excerpt: The Bastard’s Bargain by Katee Robert

Review & Excerpt: The Bastard’s Bargain by Katee Robert

The Faerie Queen’s review This is the sixth book in The O’Malleys series, but the first I’ve read. That maaaay have been a mistake. I thought it might be like other romance series, where there are references to some previous characters and events, but the story itself is contained for the most part. Nope. You are better off reading this as part of a series, as I learned when I was completely confused for the first chapter or two. Even once I’d gotten into this story, there were references to other characters and previous events that kept me from fully enjoying the narrative. That being said, I did actually enjoy this! This is one for those of you who like organised crime families, darkness, and power plays. The relationship between Dmitri and Keira can be very aptly described as love-hate, with all that anger and attempts to control each other infused […]

Review: Elements of Mischief by C.M. Stunich & Tate James

Review: Elements of Mischief by C.M. Stunich & Tate James

The Faerie Queen’s review I was a little nervous about reading this because both authors wrote for the Snow & Seduction reverse harem anthology that I have not been able to get through. The anthology is a bit of a mess, and doesn’t look like it’s been edited at all (for content or typos). But I am happy to report that Elements of Mischief is actually a lot of fun and has clearly gone through all the right stages of publication! Reverse harems tend to have the same cast of men – the bad boy, the calming presence, the horndog, and the charming leader – and this was no different. In case you’re wondering: Billy (fire), George (earth), Reg (water), and Skeeter (air). But I sort of expected as much, and while not necessarily original, it was dependably entertaining and sexy. They could be a bit much sometimes, especially Reg, who was […]

Excerpt: On the Edge by Dani Collins

If hate-to-love is your kinda romance, we’ve got an excerpt from a new fiesty romance: On the Edge by Dani Collins! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Dani Collins shares fast facts! The working title for On The Edge was Uphill Battles. Glory is a romance author, like me! Also like me: she’s sarcastic, an introvert, and swears a lot. Glory writes a no-room-at-the-inn Christmas romance called Blessed Winter. You read it as you read On The Edge. My husband calls it ‘a book within a book.’ Murphy, the dog that Rolf’s brother brings to the lodge and leaves with him (against Rolf’s will!) is real. My brother-in-law rescued him two years ago. The name Blue Spruce Lodge is in memory of my grandmother. She loved Blue Spruce trees. (And romance novels, as do I!) Excerpt “I’m saying […]

Review: Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey

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: 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 […]
