Don’t Cry for Me (Midnight in Manhattan, #1) – Rachel Lacey

4.5* - Who doesn’t love an ice queen? Eve Marlow has good reasons to protect her heart, and herself in general, and that no-nonsense you-do-what-you-have-to-do quality has come in very handy in her job as a TV personality helping faltering small businesses flourish. Not even the iciest of ice queens, however, can leave newborn kittens … Continue reading Don’t Cry for Me (Midnight in Manhattan, #1) – Rachel Lacey

Wild Things – Karin Kallmaker & Abby Craden (narrator)

This book is special to me. Karin Kallmaker is one of the first lesfic authors I ever read, and this specific book is the first lesbian romance I translated. I don’t remember reading it since, and listening to this story so many years later, masterfully narrated by Abby Craden, was a whole new and captivating … Continue reading Wild Things – Karin Kallmaker & Abby Craden (narrator)

To the Moon and Back – Melissa Brayden

I love Melissa Brayden’s books because they’re often fluffy and profound at the same time. They touch delicately on challenging topics (family, anxiety, imposter syndrome…). They seem lighthearted and happy, and they are, but they’re also more than that. And I’d do well to remember that because as much as I enjoy the joyful feelings … Continue reading To the Moon and Back – Melissa Brayden

As Long As Love Lasts – Jea Hawkins & Lori Prince

Pets. Some people have cats (I have two), some have dogs. Some even have chinchillas. Marty Bell had an elephant. And that’s not even what’s most surprising about her story. When her wife Brooke inherited her great-aunt Marty's farm in upstate New York, Peyton Kennedy thought they'd sell it and go back to their life … Continue reading As Long As Love Lasts – Jea Hawkins & Lori Prince

Thursday Afternoons – Tracey Richardson & Abby Craden (narrator)

4.5* - At first, all that matters is sex. The MCs hook up through a dating app and meet for casual sex. Neither uses her real name (Abby for Amy Spencer, Ellen for Ellis Hall). Neither wants a relationship. The first time goes well so they keep meeting on Thursday afternoons. One week, they both … Continue reading Thursday Afternoons – Tracey Richardson & Abby Craden (narrator)

Tumbledown (Desolation Point Tumbledown #2) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)

4.5* - Maybe it wasn’t such a clever idea to listen to Tumbledown straight after Desolation Point since now I miss Sarah and Alex. Part of me would hate being friends with them IRL because I would worry about them incessantly. Another part of me, however, would love it because they’re such great characters. They’re … Continue reading Tumbledown (Desolation Point Tumbledown #2) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)

Behind the Sun, Above the Moon: A Non-Binary Science Fiction & Fantasy Anthology

4.5* - I am not a huge short stories reader. I often feel that by the time I’m into the story, it’s over. Seeing J. S. Fields’ name on the cover of this anthology however made me want to give it a try. I loved the Ardulum series so much, I wanted more of their … Continue reading Behind the Sun, Above the Moon: A Non-Binary Science Fiction & Fantasy Anthology

Desolation Point (Desolation Point Tumbledown #1) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)

4.5* - After a rather emotional time with E. J. Noyes’ Ask Me Again, I needed a change of pace. So yeah, a story about being hunted by white supremacists in the wilderness didn’t sound traumatic at all. And it turned out to be a really good choice. After a drunk driver shattered her life, … Continue reading Desolation Point (Desolation Point Tumbledown #1) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)
