Review: Hisses and Honey by Shannon Mayer

Review: Hisses and Honey by Shannon Mayer

As much as I admire Shannon Mayer’s other bodies of work, after three installments I think it’s safe to say that the VENOM TRILOGY was a bust for me. HISSES AND HONEY was the worst of the bunch which is unfortunate because I still held on to a glimmer of hope that Alena might pull […]

Review: Just One Bite by Nora Snowdon

Review: Just One Bite by Nora Snowdon

In this instance, it worked because the siblings are a package deal, so even though it’s a different voice continuing the story, it’s one that readers are very familiar with. […]

Review: The Hunt by Chloe Neill

Review: The Hunt by Chloe Neill

THE HUNT was more balanced plot/character-wise, but the story did little to distinguish itself from other books in this genre. The focus was on who framed Liam for murder, and even though I did enjoy that aspect, the series arc and relationship between the two leads fell kinda flat. It was something that we’ve seen […]
