Rowan McAllister – A Devil’s Own Luck

Author: Rowan McAllister
Reviewed by: Valentina
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13: 9781615819010

I started this book feeling somewhat discouraged by the year the book was set in, but that only lasted as long as it took me to meet William. He was somewhat dangerous with a wicked sense of humor and a fast mind. He didn’t settle for the norm and despite having an eventful past and considering himself mostly retired from such life, he was still larger than the stuffed mold … Continue reading

It’s no secret in the publishing world that Amy Lane can write. The topic doesn’t matter, because she will write an angst filled romance with whatever is at hand and just make it shine.

Chase is a young man with so much baggage my heart ached for him. At first glance it might seem as exaggeration, but as you keep on reading, seeing his struggle and his need … Continue reading

I always try to find something good about a book, because I really don’t like handing out one star ratings. That is mostly the reason why this one got two stars from me.

Genre: M/M Contemporary Fantasy

This is probably the hardest review I’ve had to write because I do not have anything positive to say about this story. So I’m going to start with letting you know how this is truly a personal opinion and has nothing to do with the author’s talent or the quality of the book. All I can say is what I disliked about it and let other readers form their … Continue reading

I have read a few books by this author and I can say with certainty that every one of them had something special, something that made it stand out among the others. She knows how to make an ordinary topic great and how to make difficult characters loveable. So you would expect that she would at least fail when it comes to sex, but once again … Continue reading

The reason I decided to read this book was the mention of porn industry in the blurb. For some reason I really like books with the same or similar theme and the challenges presented to the characters usually make it more than interesting.

This was a story about Jarod, a backpacker who ended up in Australia without a dollar left to spend. His trip … Continue reading
