Thirty Days of Hate (Thirty Days #3)

Thirty Days of Hate by Ginger Talbot My rating: 4 of 5 stars Book 3 status: I still don’t like Sergei I’ve downgraded my negative feelings toward Sergei from hate to mere dislike. Perhaps loathe. I still think he is completely unsuitable as a partner. He doesn’t need a wife and family. He needs a […]

Thirty Days of Shame (Thirty Days #2)

Thirty Days of Shame by Ginger Talbot My rating: 4 of 5 stars Similar to the first book, I still hate Sergei. I get it: he is messed up. He had a horrific upbringing. That said, his treatment of Willow is still inexcusable. He is no romance book hero- he is the villain of a […]

Survival (Stronger Series #2)

Survival by Jay Marie My rating: 5 of 5 stars Horrifying and disturbing, but good Disclaimer: I do not consider this a romance, not even a dark romance, so if that is what you are looking for you might want to skip this one. (EDIT: the author describes this series as a “dark erotic thriller,” […]

Stolen (Stronger Series #1)

Stolen by Jay Marie My rating: 5 of 5 stars I don’t even know what to say about this book. I really don’t. I’m not sure it’s fair to refer to it as a dark romance… the dark part is accurate, but… there is no romance to be seen. I have read some pretty dark […]
