Review: Breathless by Leigh LaValle

The Faerie Queen’s review My my my. That was sexy. I mean, there was plot and character development and all that, but wooow was the chemistry amazing. Leigh kept me wanting more between the characters while giving up a teeny bit of heat here and there so I could never relax. I craved more and more, so I was definitely on the same page as Jake and Hannah. I really liked both characters. Jake was completely swoonworthy, and I loved how he had this rawness to him and could be both assertive as well as respecting Hannah and getting explicit consent. Hannah was super relatable in that while she was a yoga instructor, she defied the stereotype, loving junk food and soda. I could also relate to her need to maintain control over herself and her life. I have the same struggles, especially since my last relationship ended. Also, can I […]

Review & Excerpt: Nailed It by Cindi Madsen

The Faerie Queen’s review When I signed up for this tour, I didn’t realise at the time that this was a follow-up to 12 Steps to Mr. Right, one of the first books I reviewed on Love in a time of Feminism. If it had dawned on me then, I would have been even more eager to get started, as I knew while reading Savannah and Linc’s story that there was a little something something going on between Savannah’s brother and best friend.

Home renovation lent itself to numerous innuendos, and Cindi took full advantage. There were plenty of sexy scenes, as well as just funny, banterous ones. (Is that a word?) And while Ivy was battling with her inner relationship demons, Jackson was so sure and stable and wonderful. He gave her […]

Excerpt: Mad Love by Shana Vanterpool

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of Mad Love by Shana Vanterpool! I actually picked up the book earlier today through Kindle Unlimited because I’m a sucker for gruff guys (in books…because I’d give them a slap in real life). First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Life had a way of expunging your expectations. But it also had a way of rebuilding them. I met a hero the day I walked into Klayton’s tattoo shop, broken and terrified. My heart was tattered, and my mental state was a plain of rubble in my skull. He wasn’t your typical hero. But atypical was exactly what I needed. I needed strength to combat my weaknesses. I needed love to fight my terror. And I needed someone to look at me like I was […]
