Book Review: Tall, Dark, and Divine (Bagging a Greek God #1) by Jenna Bennett
This story had great potential, but in the end, didn’t quite deliver. I was more enthralled with the secondary character, Dionysus, and his interaction with Ariadne. I would most likely check out his book. Tall, Dark, and Divine is Worth A Look.

Book Review: Sweet Young Thang (Theta Alpha Gamma #3) by Anne Tenino
There are several things about this story that make it memorable for me, but the fact that it touches on so many challenges and charmingly handles them all is one of my favorite things about it. Repressed sexuality, bullying, insensitive "sensitivity training", social pressure, vast age differences, etc make this story stand out. What really makes it shine, though, is the chemistry between Collin and Eric and the depth written into their personalities. Once you delve down deeper, neither is what you expect and they make an adorable couple. Sweet Young Thang is a "must read"!

Early Book Review: Heart of Venom (Elemental Assassin #9) by Jennifer Estep

Loved this one and if you asked me what my top Urban Fantasy series were, then this series would definitely be high on my list.

Micro-Review: Heart of Rock by Karyn Gerrard
I have mixed feelings about this book, in all honesty. I like the broken man needing healing angle, sure, but he really hits rock bottom at the beginning and it’s hard to like Brogan at all. However, as he’s forced to clean up and he realizes just how bad he’d gotten, he kind of grew on me. I like Carly, especially for how she manhandles Brogan, but she gets reckless with him. I appreciate his transformation and her role in making it happen, but I don’t know how much I liked exactly how it played out. Their love scenes weren't bad, but I think I liked their general chemistry better.
I loved a few of the secondary characters and I’m disappointed we don’t get more of them, such as [...]
