Review: Christmas with a Bite by Patricia A. Wolf

The Faerie Queen’s review My two sentence review: This started really well!!!!!!!!! And then it became increasingly bewildering… Basically, this book was nearly impossible for me to give a rating for. On the one hand, the plot got weirder the further along I read, with far too much convenience with some things. (“Oh hi, this thing exists that you’ve never heard of in your centuries of being alive and guess what? We have it!”) On the other, I did actually enjoy reading it. If anything, the outlandishness of some things made it more fun with the addition of a friend I could go WTF to in DMs. The romance itself is hard for me to judge. I liked it and I didn’t. It started with some fun, a nice building tension with banter and boardgames. But then it escalated, with professions of love in a matter of days. It was bizarre […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Review & Excerpt: Nailed It by Cindi Madsen

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. I remember hoping there would be a sequel featuring them, and voila. Cindi Madsen delivered. The chemistry was delicious in this. 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 […]

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 […]

Review and Excerpt: The Baby Project by Miranda Liasson

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m bringing you a review today of an excellent romance (despite a questionable cover style…), plus an excerpt AND a giveaway! Check it all out below! The Faerie Queen’s review Busy doctor meets international journalist in this quick, sexy read from Miranda Liasson. And when I say quick, I mean finished in one sitting in a couple of hours. I couldn’t stop! You know when you’re reading a romance and you just want to scream and huff because you just want them to KISS ALREADY? That was me from about 10% in. It was painful. But that’s a sign of good chemistry, right? The sizzling undercurrent continued throughout the book, growing stronger and stronger, with enough heat to make me want to open a window on this cool, rainy, autumn day in London. If I were a doctor, I’d prescribe this book as an emergency pick-me-up. With […]

Review: 12 Steps to Mr. Right by Cindi Madsen

Review: 12 Steps to Mr. Right by Cindi Madsen

The Faerie Queen’s review My first introduction to Cindi Madsen was also my first introduction to sports romances, with Anatomy of a Player, and it was the start of a beautiful friendship. I thought this one started a little awkwardly. For one, I don’t think I totally grasped who the hero would be from the blurb, though it makes looking at it now. Just to clarify for y’all, 12 Steps to Mr. Right centres around Savannah Gamble, a blogger turned dating coach, whose bad experience with a guy in college set her on the path to creating a 12-step program for women to meet long-term relationship prospects. However, her program comes into question when she runs into said Bad Experience, Lincoln Wells. Former baseball player Linc has too many red flags for her to genuinely consider, but the chemistry between them is hard to ignore. Savannah must fight to stay […]
