WOW. Just wow. This book was my #1 MOST anticipated book of 2015, and let me just say that it did not disappoint! I was absolutely blown away! I don’t know how my review can ever do this book justice. Seriously. This is the kind of book that is the first of its kind. Every other sci-fi is going to wish it were this book. I know many other writers are going to try to re-create the style of this […]

Review: 5 to 1 by Holly Bodger

First of all, this was my very first erotica. Sure, I’ve read books with […]

I must say I kinda waffled when it came to rating this one. I had a bit of a love/hate relationship going with this  book, alternating between being intrigued and bored out of my freakin’ mind. My attention span wandered and I couldn’t connect to the characters at all, which really dragged the story down for me. A few times I considered giving up, but I’m glad I didn’t. The last 20% or so made up for the rest. When […]
