Review: Attraction by Penny Reid

Review: Attraction by Penny Reid

The GingerSnap’s review A few weeks ago I downloaded the second book in this series on a whim, and after realising that I had inadvertently read the middle of a series, I knew I had to go back and read the first book, to better understand Martin and Kaitlyn’s love stories. But honestly, that was 4 hours and 36 minutes of my life I wish I had back. The Elements of Chemistry series follows lab partners Martin and Kaitlyn, who have been harbouring secret crushes for each other all semester, unbeknownst to each other. Things come to a head one day while Kaitlyn is hiding in the chemistry closet and overhears one of Martin’s rugby teammates plotting to drug Martin and take advantage of him and his family fortune. Closet kisses happen, then Kaitlyn divulgies the details of this plot to Martin, he takes a leap and makes his feelings […]

Review: Ball Peen Hammer by Lauren Rowe

Review: Ball Peen Hammer by Lauren Rowe

The Faerie Queen’s review I loved this book because it surprised the hell out of me. I didn’t expect to enjoy a book about a male stripper. I didn’t expect to love a self-proclaimed man-whore. I didn’t expect said stripper to throw out so much wisdom about what women deserve, particularly in the sack. I didn’t expect to learn about my own damn anatomy from a book about a male stripper/player. I didn’t expect to question by own prejudices. But, my people, I did. Keane Morgan initially grated on my nerves. He came across as self-important, and his frequent use of terms like “babydoll” made me shudder. Maybe I should have paid more attention to the blurb; Maddie was just as annoyed with Keane at first, but he won us both over, slowly but surely. Well done to Lauren Rowe for making me fall in love with a male stripper […]

Excerpt: One Night by Allie Everhart

Excerpt: One Night by Allie Everhart

Happy Monday! To get the week started, here’s an excerpt from One Night by Allie Everhart. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt AMBER “So…can I come in?” Dylan laughs a little. “Oh, um, I um…” My brain still isn’t working. I can’t even form sentences. What is he doing here? The thought leaves my mouth. “What are you doing here?” I step aside to let him in. “I told you, I had to give you something.” He still has that smile as he comes into my apartment and closes the door. I hold up the envelope. “You already gave it to me.” “I could’ve just left that at your door. That’s not what I came here to give you.” “I don’t understand.” He steps up to me and his hand cups my cheek, his eyes moving over my face. “You’re even more beautiful than I remembered.” […]

Review: Mad Love by Shana Vanterpool

Review: Mad Love by Shana Vanterpool

TRIGGER WARNING: References to rape and physical abuse. Faerie Queen’s review It’s not about being perfect. It’s about having more good days than bad. Hmmm. HMMMMMMMMMMM. Ok. This book and I got off to a rocky start, much like the two main characters. It was so cliché, starting with a gorgeous guy only interested in meaningless sex. Then there was the rampant slut-shaming. And let’s not forget that I was nervous about how it would handle the topic of rape. That’s not to say that books should not talk about rape, but it’s important that they don’t use it as a plot device. Well, the whole plot revolved around a young woman after escaping her rapist, so… You should decide whether you want to dive into that. BUTTTTTTTTT Man, did I get wrapped up in this story after I had my fair share of eye-rolling at the clichés. I felt […]

Excerpt: More Than This by Clare James

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of MORE THAN THIS by Clare James! There’s a sale on at the moment, and you can pick up this particular book in the Impossible Love series for FREE. First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt If a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m pretty sure this one includes every dirty term in the dictionary… and even some that aren’t. Because…whoa! But it’s not so much a picture that’s currently conjuring up these filthy words as it is a live image, complete with a real-life man. And as I stand in the room, like I have so many times, I assess him as I would any subject—taking in the light and the lines, the colors and composition. My eyes are the lens and I zoom-in […]
