  Olivia Hayle is one of my 1-Click authors. Instant auto-buy, no regrets. Usually, the “accidentally married in Vegas” trope doesn’t catch me. This time, it did. The Characters Connie: She’s tough and imminently capable — and struggles so much with feeling like nothing she ever does will be enough for her family to see her as that. She wants to be seen, wants to be trusted — and can’t trust the men in her family with her problems, because then they’ll never trust her to take care of herself. It’s a sticky situation to be in, and I feel…

  I’m a sucker for Marriage-in-Trouble romances I just can’t resist the story of two (or more) people who find themselves at odds and have to fight and find a way back to each other. Of course, the trope has one big problem: how to create a conflict that is so believable that the following ice age between the spouses makes sense, and the reconciliation is so much sweeter. Maybe I just love the trope because I’m a sucker for angst, because finding a compelling, satisfying marriage-in-trouble romance is almost as hard as writing one. To Have and to Hoax…

  The story I’ve been waiting for… First of all, that cover is gorgeous. Absolutely swoonworthy. And I’ve been so looking forward to this story, because romances between orcs and human men in Finley Fenn’s Orc Sworn/Orc Forged universe are something I definitely need. And the stakes are high in this, as two enemy warriors fall for each other during the brutal war between orcs and humans. The Characters Aulis Gerrard: Once idealistic, he’s now battle-hardened, tired, and disillusioned. Questioning the sense of it all, of going on, fighting on. He’s principled and so, so good, and he longs for…

  This book is brilliant. Laugh-out-loud funny, heartwarming, swoony. He falls first and hard. I wouldn’t class it as a real enemies-to-lovers romance, as they only dislike each other during their first meeting. After that, they work really well together — up until the big third act crash. Their fake relationship feels real from the start, and there’s a legitimate reason for them to fake it — and their falling out is as character driven as their falling in love is. This is such a heartwarming and well crafted romance. I could kick myself that I almost skipped it because…

This fake relationship is comedy gold. Seriously. It’s laugh out loud funny — both leads have unique, snarky, absolutely killer funny voices. I wish I could write funny like that. Heat Level I wouldn’t exactly call this “high heat”, more middle heat with a little steam, but despite the length of 478 pages, and the first sex scene at around 60%, I didn’t miss it (which is rare for me, even rarer than a book having too much sex for me). The focus of the story was on the slow, emotional development,  the growing closeness, the bonding through spitefulness, and…

Start with a Bang I love that the action starts right away, that you never have to wait long in a Finley Fenn book for the heroine to meet her orc. And how perfectly incongruous it is to have an orc offer a handkerchief! Fenn is so good at crafting heroines who yearn to be wanted, who carry such fierce longing, too big for the men in their life. They need an orc to fill the gaping wound of their need. And here Kitty meets an orc at a pub, with a wound just like hers, both with an orc-sized…

I hate it when books make me cry! (That’s a lie. I love it). This was really deeply character driven, and so, so good. I’ve been put through the emotional wringer. Just, wow. At around 87%, I didn’t think a happy ending was possible, but Wilder pulled it off. KUDOS! Grey and Ethan are both incredibly real from the start (I want to be able to pull that off!). I was hesitant to read a romance about actors in Hollywood as it’s generally not a topic I’m interested in, but they’re both so, so cute! I love how excruciatingly slow…

Games With The Orc
January 16, 2023

Games with the Orc is such a wholesome, sweet, and hot story! Khell’ar and Sunny are well rounded characters that are perfect for each other, and the tension growing between them from the start is so well done. Kathryn Moon is so good at writing emotional pining. Once Khell and Sunny start falling for each other and all the hard to ignore feelings come out to play, the tension is just delicious. You can see how they’re perfect for each other, how their kinks match up (holy hotness! They’re on fire!), and it’s so sweet how Khell cares for Sunny,…

It’s almost Halloween, and the season of spooky comes to an end. I’m going to miss it, but thankfully, there are sexy books to indulge in the shivery feeling of fear all year round. Fear can be a great aphrodisiac, as long as you feel actually safe while experiencing the kick of adrenaline. Playing with…
