Review: "Standby" by Kim Fielding
Standby - Kim Fielding

"I want the whole shebang," [Tom] admitted. "True love. Mushy pet names. Stupid in-jokes that annoy everyone else. Happily ever after."

A sweet and super short paranormal fantasy story with the added bonus of Kim Fielding's flawless prose.

Review: "Shadow Bound" by Garrett Leigh
Shadow Bound - Garrett Leigh

"Luca leaned back into Dash's embrace, feeling the rays of the 

dawning sun bond with the heat of Dash's vibrant form. He tilted his neck to feel the warmth of Dash's lips on his crystalline skin. "Why?"

"Because you have found your soul. Now come with me and let me show you the world."

 

After being attacked by werewolves (off-page), a wounded vampire gets healed by a cat shifter's jizz (!), and they bond. That's it. That was the plot.

 

This felt more like a rough draft for a full novel rather than a short story that can hold its own. The world building was superficial and a lot of things were being left unexplained.

 

 

If this would be a freebie at least, then it would have made for a nice read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. But certainly not for $1.05 (Amazon price at the time of this review).

 

Cannot recommend.

Review: "Where There's Fire" (Panopolis, #2) by Cari Z.
Where There's Fire - Cari Z.

Very creative and imaginative, but alas, as far as the heroes/villain theme is concerned, this is more Adam West than Christian Bale. Bummer, because the premise sounded really good from the blurb. The execution though was rather silly.

Review: "Willow Man" by John Inman
Willow Man - John Inman

“We’ve always loved each other. We just weren’t old enough to know it.”

 

This was a perfect mixture of the Stephen King novels "It" and "Stand by Me" as well as the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" movie.

 

 

No one combines horror, humor and M/M like John Inman. And yet, besides all the terror and emotional turmoil, there's always such an emotionally exhausting sadness in his stories. This is primarily a horror story, but it's also a story about loss, grief, finding closure and moving on.

 

 

If you're a horror fan, I highly recommend this book.

 

If you're reading it for the romance aspect, be prepared for some serious heartsore.

 

 

Thanks to Momo and Julie for the BR!

Review: "Hexbreaker" (Hexworld, #1) by Jordan L. Hawk
Hexbreaker - Jordan L. Hawk

"Cats ain’t the only ones who like cream,” he teased."

 

 

This was so much fun! 

 

I was a little disappointed at first that this wasn't a full Rook/Dominic story since I enjoyed their prequel short story "The 13th Hex" very much.

 

But it didn't take me long to warm up to the flamboyant and snarky Cicero and the gentle and good-hearted Tom. They were a perfect familiar/witch match, even though they didn't think so at first.

 

 

I really like how Jordan L. Hawk manages to write not only sweet and steamy romances, but also captivating and suspenseful mysteries. I was on the edge of my seat more than once.

 

 

This was a great romance as well as a well-written mystery that's set in a quasi-historical New York at the end of the 1890's.

 

4 out of 5 stars, would definitely recommend!

 

 

Thanks to Julie & Momo for the BR!
