Peppermint Kiss – Marian Snowe

4.5* The opening of this Christmas novella is definitely in my top 10. It sets the tone from the start, and I knew I'd laugh and be happy by the end of the story (which was kind of a given since it's a Christmas novella but still, I like it when stories keep their promises). … Continue reading Peppermint Kiss – Marian Snowe

Big Girl Pill – K.D. Williamson

4.5 * Nina was Maya’s best friend, the most important person in her life – with her brothers –, until they slept together one drunken night in their last year of college. Nina, a supposedly straight girl, had complained about a bad experience with a woman (it's college, right?) and Maya had offered to show … Continue reading Big Girl Pill – K.D. Williamson

The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor

4.5* While I've been reading more and more erotica lately, I'm by no means an expert, and I've been very pleasantly surprised by how varied a genre it is. In the last, say, three months, I read The X Ingredient by Roslyn Sinclair, Party of Three by Sandy Lowe (the audiobook version, perfectly narrated by … Continue reading The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor

Breaking the Ice (Sophie Fournier #1) – K.R. Collins

Before I discovered lesfic, I never thought it could be that much fun to read about sports. I mean, I often find watching sports boring, even those I understand (unless I'm in the stands, and there's noise and enthusiasm and all), so how could it be interesting without only words and no images? And yet. … Continue reading Breaking the Ice (Sophie Fournier #1) – K.R. Collins

Fireflies – Lise Gold & Stevie Zimmerman (Narrator)

I think I finally understand why I like Lise Gold’s characters so much. They remind me of my wife. They’re good and selfless women who do their best to make life beautiful and easier for the people they love. They’re strong (much stronger than they think) and flawed, sweet and determined. Mia Donoghue loves her … Continue reading Fireflies – Lise Gold & Stevie Zimmerman (Narrator)

Borage (The Plague Tree Coven Book 1) – Gill McKnight

4.5* Some books seem light and fun on the surface but actually deal with rather deep topics. In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and its sequels, for example, Douglas Adams hides plenty of thoughts about greed and politics and belonging underneath that 42 answer (which will forever remain the best answer ever). I got … Continue reading Borage (The Plague Tree Coven Book 1) – Gill McKnight

Invisible, as Music – Caren J. Werlinger

I’ll start with a confession (these reviews are getting more and more personal, aren’t they?): age gap romances make me uncomfortable. I’m not judging, or, rather, if I’m judging anyone, it’s myself. I have trouble understanding them. It’s all in my head, I know. For the physical part, I can see loving an older or … Continue reading Invisible, as Music – Caren J. Werlinger

Living – Lise Gold & TJ Richards (narrator)

Living is one of my favorite books this year, probably in my Top 5. I wouldn’t have read it again so soon since I remembered a lot. Which, as you’ll know if you have read my reviews before, is rather telling and totally unusual. Yet when the audiobook came out, narrated by TJ Richards, I … Continue reading Living – Lise Gold & TJ Richards (narrator)
