Review: Make Me Want by Katee Robert

The Faerie Queen’s review This is the second book by Katee Robert that I’ve read, and I’m starting to notice a trend. Or rather, three trends. She writes hot sex. While her heroes are very alpha, her heroines are just as strong and powerful. Combining those two, there is a large focus on empowering heroines to express their own desires. It’s not all about what the heroes want in the bedroom. While Make Me Want didn’t have the same impact on me as The Bastard’s Bargain (but then that did have much higher stakes), I was still very impressed with this, especially considering the shorter page count. It was a quick jab of heat and emotion. The beginning was a whirlwind. Lucy was facing that wonderful challenge of being a working woman (I say sarcastically): despite being an incredible employee, she anticipated being passed up for promotion because of her lack of a […]

Review: 69 Million Things I Hate About You by Kira Archer

The Faerie Queen’s review If you want pure fluff, ok, you can read this. I mean, I did sort of enjoy the book. But I couldn’t help thinking while reading that there were a lot of other, better books. This was so formulaic and lazy that I’m sure I could have gotten the same romance kick and more elsewhere. Let’s start with the easiest thing. This book was rushed. Yeah, you could say it was a “quick read”, but really, it just wasn’t very developed. Right from the beginning, I felt like only the bare minimum was thrown in to get the plot going. No time was taken to really let us know who the various characters were, what their lives were like, etc. But hey, I very quickly learned about Bossman Cole… Without any scene-setting, the book started with Cole’s assistant quitting because he wouldn’t let her take the weekend off to […]

Playlist & Excerpt: Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder

It’s two for the price of one today! I’ve got a playlist AND an excerpt from Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder! About the book Playlist For every book I write, I create a playlist before I sit down to compose a single word. I listen to the music all the time—in the house, in the car—because it’s my way of keeping the story moving in my head. I use it to connect with my characters – at least who I think they’ll be once I start writing. Here’s the playlist for Meeting His Match. Put Your Hands on Me – Joss Stone After You – Meg Myers Hero – Enrique Iglesias I Want to Be Loved – Etta James Woman – John Lennon I’ll Trust You – Josh Abbott Band Hands Down – Dashboard Confessional Collide – Howie Day The Story – Brandi Carlile The Shoop Shoop Song – Cher […]

Review: Blame It on the Bet by L.E. Rico

Review: Blame It on the Bet by L.E. Rico

The Faerie Queen’s review “You’ll get hurt again at some point in your life. We all do. That’s the price of living. But what’s the point of living if you don’t at least try?” Fellow readers, I have been on a heartwarming journey about home, family, and finding out who you are alongside someone who loves that very person. It was full of fuzzies. I can understand why this is an Entangled Bliss story as opposed to one of the other Entangled imprints. The focus of the romance was very warm but not hot, if you know what I mean. The steamier stuff was hinted at, but while Hennessy and Bryan did find each other very attractive, it was their respective personalities and vulnerabilities that drew them to each other. I also loved how there wasn’t any messing about, not really. Hennessy was especially direct, and it was unexpected and […]
