Audio Review: One Blood Ruby by Melissa Marr

Audio Review: One Blood Ruby by Melissa Marr

February 26, 2018 Reviews 0

I was REALLY looking forward to starting¬†One Blood Ruby¬†by after I had read the first book in the series. I enjoyed¬†Seven Black Diamonds¬†that much! I liked the multiple POVs, the Fae living in the human world, the modern setting, really all of it. So why was¬†One Blood Ruby¬†not as good as I was hoping?! The book picks up pretty much right where it left off. Lilywhite, now Lilydark, is about to be named the heir to the Hidden Throne. However she has some stipulations, namely that she would like to live in both worlds, stop the war, offer protections to… Read more »

Review: The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

Review: The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

February 23, 2018 Reviews 1

When I picked up¬†The Wedding Date¬†by , I was expecting a sweet, contemporary romance set over the course of a whirlwind weekend. I based that assumption off the title, having skimmed the blurb. Imagine my disappointment when the wedding date was only the first 20% of the book. Despite this disappointment, there were other factors that detracted from my ability to like the story. But before I get into those, here are the things I really liked about the book: Interracial couple: Alexa is black and Drew is white (hence the cover ūüėČ) Meet during a power outage on an… Read more »
