FEATURED: Curse on the Land by Faith Hunter “Favorite Cover Fridays” is a weekly meme by Leona @ Literary Treasure Chest. It’s all about book covers; how they look and how we feel about them. Being able to admire book covers both far and wide is one of the pleasures of being a bookaholic, so this post is 100% dedicated to gushing over the only one (or two if there happens to be a tie) cover during your week that has impacted you the most, that has induced you in cover lust. See the criteria and rules here. Why the Curse on the Land by Faith Hunter Cover? My gosh, this cover is gorgeous! I don’t know who the artist is but they are excellent at their craft. It’s like the artist captured the essence of what the story is about and BAM produced the cover. Everything, the font, the colors, the woman, her […]

When Bae’s Boss 2 by Lucinda John

When Bae’s A Boss 2 was one of my most anticipated reads of the second half of 2016. With the way When Bae’s A Boss ended I lost my mind a little, I seriously needed to know what happened next. Usually with cliffhangers I will respond in one or two ways; (1) in anger which leads to me not wanting to read the next installment, or (2) having a temper tantrum because I have to wait until the author publishes the next part (sob). Luckily for When Bae’s A Boss 2 it was the later reaction, but it sucks because the sequel didn’t meet the expectations I had when I finished When Bae’s A Boss. When Bae’s A Boss 2 jumped right into where its predecessor left off, for which I was grateful because with the amount of books I read in a month I needed a refresher on what all had happened. (Don’t […]

Dirtiest Secret by J. Kenner

That freaking ending!! Lately I’ve been getting suckered into a whole lot of series thanks to the first book having an ending that I just can’t ignore. Having never read a J. Kenner, or Julie Kenner, book before I really didn’t know what to expect with Dirtiest Secret, but when I started reading I could not put it down. Lately, erotic romance stories haven’t been my thing. I don’t know if it’s the amount of sex that takes place between the characters or the kink that they’re into or what, but I just haven’t had the emotional capacity that usually comes with all the intimate moments that characters sometimes have in this genre. Dirtiest Secret had its abundant amount of sexy times, but the heartache that was given to us right at the beginning stayed on mind and heart all throughout this story. Not only did the story of Dirtiest Secret make me want to […]

Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews

Finding a series that continues to deliver book after book like the Kate Daniels series is such a blessing and treasure. Magic Strikes again blew me away. It should be criminal to have such a unique, engaging, and appealing storyline and to have a narrator that brings every character to life. After the showdown that happened in Magic Burns I once again didn’t know what to expect with Magic Strikes. What went down in Magic Burns, though, were things that I couldn’t imagine on my best day, the writing duo in Ilona Andrews is the best I’ve ever seen and they eclipse a lot of individual authors I’ve invited onto my pirate ship. When the chess pieces started to get in formation, my excitement for Magic Strikes started to ramp up in ways that I haven’t seen since reading the Others series by Anne Bishop. Just when I thought things couldn’t get […]
