4.50 Stars. Anyone who follows my reviews knows I’m a big Aten fan. I love her writing style and the fact that she writes in every category imaginable so each book feels completely new. From her fan-freaking-tastic fantasy series about the Amazons in ‘The Fletcher’ to her futuristic/sci-fi2019 Goldie award winner ‘Waking the Dreamer’, there is something for every type of fan to enjoy. This book is herRead More »

Lesbian Fantasy Crime Book Review of ‘Wild’ by Meghan O’Brien
I chose O’Brien’s ‘Wild’ continuing with my new year resolution to read more lesbian books out of my comfort zone. Thanks, Tere for the recommendation! I’m so glad I decided to finally take the plunge and read it. It’s true that it deals with a vicious serial killer and there are violence and some disturbing content which normally are triggers for me, but the author handles them with finesse.
Selene Rhodes is a reclusive designer who hides a secret, not only she can shift to any other animal shape but also every full moon she transforms into a werewolf without a human conscience. So, for her, any romantic involvement is ruled out. Forensic pathologist Eve Thomas is brilliant at her profession but unlucky in love. When she meets Selene, who helps her after an attack, they cannot help but feel strongly drawn to each other. But Selene keeps secrets and Eve cannot trust her. Can Selene open up to Eve and help her catch a dangerous serial killer?Read More »
Lesbian Crime Book Review of ‘No Good Reason’ by Cari Hunter
Why didn’t anyone recommend this book to me? 😉 Ok, ok, several people did. I was too darn stubborn and wanted to save it for a rainy day. I may have to dive into the three and a half (there is a short story too) lesbian crime book series right away.
This is the story of Sanne Jensen, a British detective that stumbles upon a kidnapping victim, sending her department into a manhunt. The manhunt turns frantic as another victim is discovered. In the meantime, Sanne’s longtime friend, Dr. Meg Fielding helps her try to keep some sanity through the case while trying to figure out the state of their relationship.
Can the detectives beat the clock and save the other victim before it is too late?Read More »
Lesbian YA Book Review of ‘The Women of Dauphine’ by Deb Jannerson
3.50 Stars. This is a lesbian YA book that was well written but hard to read. Trigger warnings include violence, abuse, sexual assault, suicide, and the one that really bothered me, conversion therapy. Actually, had I realized this book included children in conversion therapy I would have passed on it. I do want to make clear though this is not NineStar Press’ fault or the author’s but mine for not reading the whole book blurb.
I find book blubs to often contain spoilers, so I tend to skim or ignore them altogether. I read the first paragraph, saw that this was a lesfic YA-paranormal-romance, and immediately grabbed this book. I just ignored the conversion therapy part that is clearly sitting right there in paragraph two of the blurb.Read More »
