“So you're just a quiet, cranky, brooding mountain man?” “Something like that.”

Coral and 38 other people liked Auntee's review of Sweet Possession (Sweet, #5):
Sweet Possession by Maya Banks
"Anyone expecting a typical Maya Banks read might be a bit disappointed with this one. This is a straight up erotic romance, with nary a hint of kink in it (okay, maybe the cupcake scene could be called kinky)! But there's no bdsm, no master/slave,..." Read more of this review »

It’s very rare to find a rock star romance where the heroine is the rock star, or pop star in this case. It’s even more rare to find a heroine who behaves like the rock star heroes, being difficult and sleeping with anything that moves, and a super t ...more

“I loved that movie so much.” “Yeah?” Ed sits at the table, drawing on a computer tablet. “It used to be another one of your favorites.” “It was a really great love story.” “Clem, you do know the movie’s called Terminator? It’s about a killer robot.”

Eh it was ok. I never really got the romantic connection between the two. She has a stronger relationship with the dog.
It’s not the worst Kylie Scott I’ve read, but not the best either.

That cover is gorgeous. Sadly the book itself is pretty mediocre. The characters are ok, the plot is ok, the setting is ok. Not sure if I would read any more of the series.

The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston
“Let me answer all your questions for you right off the bat,” she cut in. “No, this isn’t a dream. Yes, you died. Yes, you were brought back by a Nordic goddess. Yes, you’re one of us. No, you’re not pure evil. Did I cover it all?”

3.5 stars. This book was wryly funny, but had so much going on. Kindle X-ray would have been nice because remembering all the various characters was challenging. The world building was interesting, but it took me a long time to get through it. I like ...more

Love Bites by Lynsay Sands
"“Everything's all fun and games until someone gets an ax in the chest.”

Yeah, I hate when that happens.
So, Rachel is a coroner who is kind of a perv. She's all creeping on this corpse, thinking how sexy he is. I seriously think that her boss should..." Read more of this review »

For a vampire romance with several attempted murders, kidnappings, and a wedding, this never had any narrative tension. The second act romance lagged (although holy shit that BJ bite 😳).
Yet I still want to keep reading the series.

“You only have to look back five years to see a different world and, by extension, tangible proof that culture is ours to shape, if we try.”
Lindy West, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman

Hillary Rodham Clinton
“I do not wish women to have power over men, but over themselves.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton, What Happened

Lois McMaster Bujold
“Women shouldn't be in combat," said Vorkosigan, grimly glum.
"Neither should men, in my opinion.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Shards of Honour

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“Isn’t it awfully convenient,” Harry added, “that when men make the rules, the one thing that’s looked down on the most is the one thing that would bear them the greatest threat? Imagine if every single woman on the planet wanted something in exchange when she gave up her body. You’d all be ruling the place. An armed populace. Only men like me would stand a chance against you. And that’s the last thing those assholes want, a world run by people like you and me.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Sarah Wendell
“Anything written for an audience of mostly women by a community of mostly women is subversive, reflective of the current sexual, emotional, and political status, and actively embraces and undermines that status simultaneously.”
