Phoenix by Cecilia London

<i>Phoenix</i> by Cecilia London

I’m pretty much running out of words for this series. It’s brilliant and painful, overwhelming and fully realized. Cecilia London is an evil genius that excels at ripping my heart out while I’m fist-pumping with joy. I’ve written about the first three books in the series (Dissident, Conscience, Sojourn) here and in a few other places as well. […]

Mile High by Rebecca Chance

<i>Mile High</i> by Rebecca Chance

  Mile High is Rebecca Chance’s 8th book – she writes British bonkbusters, so American readers can be forgiven for not recognizing her name. Books about rich people behaving badly, usually multiple characters with overlapping storylines and sumptuous sex. On several levels, this one doesn’t disappoint, but I certainly wouldn’t call it my favorite of […]

Wilde at Heart by Tonya Burrow...

<i>Wilde at Heart</i> by Tonya Burrows

Can’t Buy Me Love by Mol...

<i>Can’t Buy Me Love</i> by Molly O’Keefe

Conscience by Cecilia London

<i>Conscience</i> by Cecilia London

I’m a writer as well as a reader, so I know how annoying and borderline offensive it is to authors to have someone scream at them to write faster. I do. I promise. That being said. WRITE FASTER, LONDON. FAAAASSSSTTEERRRRRRRR. Holy hell, this book series. I’ve started ordering my friends to read this, sending text […]

Dissident by Cecilia London

<i>Dissident</i> by Cecilia London

  Christ on a cracker, y’all – THIS BOOK. No shit, THIS BOOK. Do you enjoy dystopian fiction like Hunger Games or Divergent but wish all the good dystopians weren’t about teenagers? Can you not get enough of House of Cards? Or wish the West Wing was still happening? Into reading detailed marathon sex sessions between consenting adults? Then pick up this series […]
