Taken by the Minotaur by Isabel Dare

My rating: 2 of 5 stars



Ashamed to say I liked this short way too much for my comfort but I couldn't help it. That being said, I am so not wasting my hard won money to keep reading this series no matter what.

Review: Hazing Moon


Hazing Moon
Hazing Moon by Layla Cole

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I'm ashamed to say I liked it. A lot. But I am also considerably pissed by the cliffhanger. In a short story. Which is already short. So...seriously? I'm not gonna spend 3 bucks to read another short with another cliffhanger that's for sure.

Rating: 2.5 ★ (half star for the end)

Review: Last First Kiss


Last First Kiss
Last First Kiss by Piper Vaughn

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



This story is considerably well written specially taking into account how short it is. Not perfect. Almost impossible to cover every aspect in so few pages but it is good enough to be enjoyable and entertaining. The characters are sweet and their romance seemed particularly satisfying. Still too incomplete though to consider a higher rating. Pity. Could've been a good full novel.

Review: Las Palabras De Amor - Words of Love


Las Palabras De Amor - Words of Love
Las Palabras De Amor - Words of Love by K-lee Klein

My rating: 1 of 5 stars



Not keen on either character much less both of them together. I didn't like how either of them handled their relationship. Lucas letting himself be with someone who used him and his grilfriend for his own desires for years and Danilo for not manning up and decide sooner what he wanted. And his "redemption" wasn't any kind of redemption at all because he ended up almost manipulating Lucas or at least the circumstances with the kid so that they could be together again. Maybe it was supposed to invoke romantic feelings of me or something but I just got angry with Lucas for letting himself get blindsided/handled by the situation and Danilo. A boot up his *ss would've been more appropriate. Both of them. Even if I am a little sympathetic with Lucas.

Just One Bite: Volume One by Scarlet Blackwell

My rating: 0 of 5 stars



The Unlikely Vampire by Scarlett Blackwell

Well that was an unlikely story for sure. I'm flabbergasted. Yep. You read that right. I think I'd be a little offended if I hadn't laughed so hard.

Sacrifice by JL Merrow

Hmm. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be incredibly romantic but it fell flat for me. I even feel a little cheated. Not my thing.

One Last Wish by Josephine Myles

Well. Rushed is the word that first comes to mind but it was so short I doubt there was any time to develop it anyway so I enjoyed it. I liked the compassion and sweetness showed.

Mayan Time by Erik Orrantia

Meh. Didn't do much for me.

Fire Can Make It Rain by Nix Winter

Really? I don't know if I should laugh or cry. Seriously. The dialog was atrocious. Wow.

The Hunter and The Hunted by Stevie Woods

Best story in this book by far. I have a thing for frenemies turned lovers and I just loved this couple. I didn't even mind the lack of sex. Too bad it was just a short.

Review: From the Ashes


From the Ashes
From the Ashes by Daisy Harris

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I'm not certain I liked this story. I liked the couple, I liked Tomas's family and I even liked Jesse's mom but the romance between both of them? How it developed? How it ended? Not so sure about that. For some reason the way Tomas interacted with his own family always put me on edge. How they were all supposed to be amazingly close but never even knew each other all that well. It's hard to swallow (har har har) and put a huge damper on all this. Also made me look at all of them a little differently, beyond what the author was writing, specially Tomas. Maybe that's why Tomas wasn't all much of a hero for me. Now if you told me of a romance between Michael and Rick...I'd be all over it for sure but nope. Michael will fall for another guy. Bummer. Oh well. There goes my interest.

Review: In His Pocket


In His Pocket
In His Pocket by Erica Pike

My rating: 1 of 5 stars



Short and I didn't like Matt so their loving relationship did nothing for me. Maybe he wasn't that bad but the impression I got from him in these few pages was that he was a manipulative little jerk. Sorry.

Review: Half-Baked Promises


Half-Baked Promises
Half-Baked Promises by Erica Pike

My rating: 2 of 5 stars



Sickly sweet. Oh so romantic and swoon worthy. Didn't do much for me tho. Didn't care for either of the main characters and the situation was completely ridiculous. Meh. Could've lived without it.

Review: Bloodlines


Bloodlines
Bloodlines by Jessica Lee

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Good yet not great. The romance was so very rushed and having Evin turn Mason without his knowledge is just something that bothers me to no end. No doubt irresponsible because he almost shifted the first time they had sex. He knew his control wasn't that good when it came to Mason yet he persevered. Not telling the truth. Bound to happen something to get their knickers in a twist. Just a matter of time. The sex...again good but not great. I just couldn't feel their connection.

Review: A Taste of Midnight


A Taste of Midnight
A Taste of Midnight by Keira Andrews

My rating: 2 of 5 stars



Not much as is usual in short stories but enjoyable. The sex is not terrible even if a little dull from a vampire and the characters seemed somewhat interesting if not very developed. Simple fun. And it was free so I got my money's worth.
