Bear Attraction by Jennifer Ashley

2 November 2017 Casey 0

As much as I love the Shifter Unbound series by Jennifer Ashley, the novellas usually don’t do it for me. However, her novella Bear Attraction was surprisingly good. A female alpha bear-Shifter is pretty rare in PNR books, but I loved it. (Really, I just want more bears in PNR. Is that too […]

Mercy Thompson Read-Along

3 March 2017 Casey 0

During one of the parties at at Coastal Magic Con  last month, two other lovely bloggers, Tamara from Shelf Addiction and Emily from Sharing Links and Wisdom, and I started gushing our fangirl love for the Mercy Thompson. series by Patricia Briggs After copious amounts of free alcohol, we decided that […]

Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

11 April 2016 Casey 0

I picked up Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon based off of the cover alone. It is such a gorgeous cover and I had such high hopes for it. Unfortunately, I could barely make it to page 50 before I had to call it quits. I could not connect […]

Revenant by Larissa Ione

13 February 2015 Casey 1

One of my favorite series of all time is the Demonica series by Larissa Ione. I love, love, love it! Sexy demons, evil angels, crazy hot sex, and some of the most violent fight scenes I’ve ever read – what’s not to love? The last (for now) book in the […]

Let the Wild Out by Madelyn Porter

5 February 2015 Casey 0

I have pages and pages of unread books on my Kindle, and every once in a while, I’ll go through them to find something new to read. (I should probably do that instead of just buying more books, but that’s a rant for another time.  *grin*) Anyway, I found Let […]

Geek Girls Don’t Date Dukes by Gina Lamm

6 November 2014 Casey 0

I adored Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl by Gina Lamm and jumped all over it’s sequel, Geek Girls Don’t Date Dukes. Surprisingly enough, I liked it much better than the first. Geek Girls Don’t Date Dukes had more humor, heart and heat — and, dang it, I want my own Avery! All […]

Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson

9 October 2014 Casey 0

Growing up in Florida, hurricanes were just a part of life for me. They weren’t scary, just something we prepared for. Yet, after reading Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson, I’ve realized that my entire life has been a lie. I should be terrified of hurricanes. Because according […]

Escapists Uncensored: Finding New Books

3 September 2014 Casey 0

In which I rant about finding new authors I live dangerously close to the library. I’m not talking dangerous for my health. Oh, no. I mean, I live so close to the library that I go there every single day and check out a metric shit ton of books. I’m […]

#CMC15 Featured Author: Larissa Ione

29 August 2014 Casey 2

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White

28 August 2014 Casey 0

The most prominent mythology used in young adult books is Greek Mythology. Which is fine, (there’s nothing wrong with Greek mythology) but there are other cultures/mythologies out there that can be used. It seems like Kiersten White knew this and instead of basing her story about Greek Mythology, she used Egyptian. That’s right, […]

Nightshade by Michelle Rowen

14 August 2014 Casey 0

Michelle Rowen is probably most known for making vampires snarky and misunderstood (Sarah Dearly and Theiry anyone?) but she has another urban fantasy series where the vampires are evil blood suckers. Shocking, right? Nightshade by Michelle Rowen was an excellent start in a dark, gritty world where nothing is as […]

LGrimes-In a Fix

In A Fix by Linda Grimes

9 March 2014 Casey 1

Every once in a blue moon, I’ll find the perfect book. The one book that is so perfect, I can’t find any problems with it. In fact, I’d probably read it five times in a row and love every single word, every single time. You know, that book. In A […]

Wicked As They Come by Delilah S. Dawson

6 March 2014 Casey 0

Over the years, I’ve heard some readers talk about how books should stick with one genre and leave it at that. If that were an actual rule, Wicked As They Come by Delilah S. Dawson would completely shattered that rule. Wicked As They Come has everything: Vampires that aren’t really […]
