Book Review: Don’t fall for the players! (A Perfect Plan by Alyssa Drake)

I received a free copy of this book to review. However, the following review is my honest opinion. This book may not be suitable for younger audiences. Reader discretion is advised.

It’s Samantha’s first Season. She’s being introduced to society so she can find a husband and settle down as a respectable wife. The problem is, few of her favourite activities are respectable. She’d much rather be reading a book or riding a horse than dancing with rich bigots at a ball, especially when she spots Benjamin, her late brother’s best friend. I’m sure if you tried to skewer someone when you were 10, you wouldn’t want to see them again either. I know I’d rather just melt into an embarrassed puddle.

Book Review: Curiosity Time-Jumped the Cat (The Mine by John A. Heldt)

The Mine

Author Website | Buy this Book

I received a free copy of this book to review. However, the following review is my honest opinion.

Joel Smith is the kind of guy who would decide on a whim to explore an old mine. Well, he is a geology student after all. A few minutes in, he comes face to face with a rattlesnake. Curiosity could have killed the cat. Instead, Joel stumbles out of the mine and realises curiosity brought him back. To 1941, that is.

I received a free copy of this book to review. However, the following review is my honest opinion.

Dan has suffered from crippling headaches ever since his family died in an accident. The headaches come every day without fail, leaving him unable to do anything but curl up in a wheezing ball of pain. But when he meets a mysteriously enchanting girl with huge eyes, his headache abandons him. Instead, he’s struck by a dangerous, sudden-onset heart condition: love (??).

Book Review: It’s a Trap! (Savaged Lands by Lana Kortchik)

I received a free copy of this book to review. However, the following review is my honest opinion.

Stalin would protect them. The Soviet Union would never fall. That is what Natasha wants to believe. And she does–until the Nazis march into Kiev to eat all their food, squat in their homes and generally lay waste to the Ukranian capital. Continue reading “Book Review: It’s a Trap!

This book (and review) may not be suitable for younger audiences. Reader discretion is advised.

I received a free copy of this book to review. However, the following review is my honest opinion.

Cassi has been alone in the world since her husband and child died a year ago. So, when a cowboy named Johnny saunters up to her doorstep, she doesn’t greet him with open arms. No, because that’s not what you do when you’re a woman alone in the Wild West. You grab all your guns and point them at the fella. That’s exactly what Cassi does–until she sees his face and falls in lust at first sight. Continue reading “Book Review: Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy!”

Book Review: Hail, Emperor! Those who are about to die…will flash the spectators.

voice in the wind

This book (and review) may not be suitable for younger audiences. Reader discretion is advised.

Hadassah is captured after the sacking of Jerusalem. She is sold into slavery in Rome, a sprawling city of lust, greed, and bloodshed. The prime entertainment choices are the Roman games, in which prisoners of war kill each other, or the prostitutes at the temple of Artemis. (Because the goddess of the hunt and virginity totally needs prostitutes?) Continue reading “Book Review: Hail, Emperor! Those who are about to die…will flash the spectators.”
