Review: Truth Or Lie

Truth Or Lie
Truth Or Lie by Lynn Lorenz
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Lynn Lorenz’s work always seems to land in the middle of the range for me. It’s not great but not bad either. It’s pleasant for the time to read it and ultimately very forgettable. Truth or Lie goes along with that trend. It’s very easy to read, the characters fall in love nearly instantly, there’s a brief hint of tension but it’s smoothed over very quickly with a touch of a lesson for everyone. I think fans of the author may like this one more than those new readers but either way it’s an easy and mildly pleasant way to pass the time. Continue reading

Review: The Art of the Delaneys

The Art of the Delaneys  (The Delaneys #3)The Art of the Delaneys by Anne Brooke
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Delaney’s series is a very entertaining excuse for some hot ménage sex. The various installments don’t really add much to the characterization or overall plot but the setups manage to make for some fun and hot sex scenes. The third installment is set up at Liam’s place of business and involves an art scam. This of course is just a way for Liam to have some hot and dirty sex with the mob twins but who’s complaining.

Review: Between Sinners and Saints

Between Sinners and Saints Between Sinners and Saints by Marie Sexton
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Between Saints and Sinners shines in many ways; the skillful handling of abuse and PTSD, the inclusion of a very sticky subject in religion and theology, difficult and absentee families, and a complicated relationship. This book could have gone horribly wrong but Sexton is a great writer and kept the subjects complicated yet not overwhelming. None of the characters are perfect or evil but show various shades of grey. They have intolerance yet also an ability to learn and change. Although not wholly successful for me, I think the story is an excellent example of complex issues and characters that never verge into extremes yet remain fascinating. Continue reading

Review: Entertaining The Delaneys

Entertaining The Delaneys (The Delaneys #2)Entertaining The Delaneys by Anne Brooke
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Entertaining the Delaneys is the sequel to The Delaney’s and Me. Like the first short story, this one is a sex scene that seeks to delve slightly deeper into the characters and their complicated relationship. More kinks come to the surface and more depth to the various men in what promises to be a series of short stories. I’m not sure I like or even appreciate the characters in such short, stunted vinaigrettes versus a longer, more fleshed out story but the individual scenes are smoking hot and easy to read so fans won’t be disappointed.

Review: Beyond Reckless

Beyond RecklessBeyond Reckless by Ava March
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As most have said this is a short, but smoking hot story. Ava March writes absolutely delicious regency romances and this short offering is no different. We’re introduced to Rhys, a young man on this 25th birthday about to come into a large inheritance. He has a thirst for adrenaline and risk, thus his sexual appetite. He meets his lover Martin for a quick, BDSM flavored tryst at a ball.
