I was kindly supplied with an advanced reader's copy of this book by the publisher NineStar Press however I really did not enjoy this book and I could not finish it. I had to put the book down fairly early in the reading process.

The thing that saddens me most about this book is the amount of potential the world and characters had, and the way it was wasted.

This brings me to my first issue with this book, it is the way it was written. The book did not read smoothly or make a great amount of sens

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Even though I'm not a regular romance reader I gave Luka a shot, because of the blurb. I however was sorely disappointed.

Definitely heed the content warnings for this one, primarily the sexual assault and incest warnings. These warnings are given as happening off the page, however, they are regularly mentioned throughout the book, including regular taunts from the abuser to his victims.

I enjoyed the story of this book, in partic

With warnings like that (and I don't make them lightly: these themes are persistent throughout and you can't skip past them as they're mentioned every few paragraphs) this novel would need to be truly groundbreaking and brilliantly written to be palatable. It isn't. This uncomfortable book reads like bad fanfiction with all the abuse tropes thrown in in lieu of plot. There's constant exposition and the two main

Initially this book confused me slightly and it took to some concentration to understand what was going on but then very quickly i was enthralled by this book. There is a trigger warning for abuse, assault and mentions of incest in this book but it does add to the plot. The characters are also very diverse and that is always something appreciated in a good book. Definitely worth the read.

I wanted to love this one with this amazing cover. But sadly this one just didn't work for me at all. This book has massive trigger warnings and I think that the note at the front of the story was perfectly done. But the story itself just didn't mesh with me at all. ...more

After growing up in California and spending the first ten years of marriage in Colorado, I now live in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon with my incredibly patient husband, who puts up with the endless hours I spend hunched over the keyboard letting my characters play.
I have to say, Oregon’s raindrops are the perfect setting in which to write. There’s something about being cooped up in th
