I must admit that at first glance this story sounded very appealing to me. Vacation love, different setting and snowboarding? Well, yeah, bring it on. However, as I started reading, it didn’t take me long to change my mind.

Lasse and Marko meet at a ski resort, where Marko came with his brother and friend, their respected girlfriends and Kira who you can say had a ‘hard … Continue reading

First and foremost I should say that I get grossed out by zombies.  I read this because I like the writing of Zach Sweets (Rusty’s Surprise).  I will admit, there are parts that  did just make me say “blech” but that’s par for the course in a zombie story.  I mean, it’s ZOMBIES.

The story begins with the introduction, and violent death, of Jake’s young son, Thomas.  … Continue reading

Megan Derr- Burning Bright

Burning Bright was pretty dim in my opinion.  I had high hopes that Ms. Derr’s second installment in the Lost Gods series would be much better than the first but was sadly let down.  The book was terribly drawn out and the characters were just very one dimensional.  There was an amazing lack of action for a fantasy story and what action there was just felt flat.

Oh Simeon.  What can I say about you, other than I wish this short story had been five times longer.  I loved him.  He is a half-gargoyle who places protection spells over locations.  In this specific case, it is a Victorian house.  A house that he has wanted for his own for years, a house he had been saving to purchase, hoping to share with Brice, the man he … Continue reading

This short story combined both one of my favorite and one of my pet peeves in the romance genre.  I am such a fan of friends to lovers stories.  I love when people actually get past their misconceptions and miscommunication and manage to be true to each other.   That being said, there must be some actual communication going on, a story behind them getting together.  The “you hurt me terribly … Continue reading

Reyes, gruff, cranky and absolutely sick to death of the Days of Devotion.  A three day celebration of love (a long Valentine’s Day!) that just makes him crazy, crazy enough to want to go murder the King and Queen who invented the tradition.  He sneers, he rolls his eyes, he gets irritated and aggravated.   He just in a foul mood, one that will remain until the stupid holiday is over.

This is a cute short story that falls a little flat, maybe due to the length.  For twenty years, Alex has received a gift from a secret admirer on Valentine’s Day. The gift always arrives on Valentine’s Day, always has a note with incredibly messy handwriting and is always untraceable.  This part of the story was great, and I loved the idea.  There were also parts that made Alex very … Continue reading
