Poison promise cover

This review does not contain spoilers for Poison Promise but may contain spoilers for earlier books in the series I’m going to get it out there straight away and say that I LOVE this series. I like nothing better than a kick ass heroine who is funny and protects those she loves, and boy, does Gin tick those boxes. Gin is back and better than ever in this 11th instalment of the Elemental Assassin series and I was so relieved that we also finally meet the mysterious M.M. Monroe after…

Scorched - Erica Hayes

I haven’t read anything by Erica Hayes before, but after reading a few reviews for Scorched, and seeing that it was on NetGalley for review, I decided to give it a go. And I’m so pleased I did. After the first chapter I realised that this was going to be my kind of book. The author pulls no punches; the writing is gritty, witty and dark – just the way I like it. The heroine, Verity Fortune, aka The Seeker, is complex and slightly damaged, but completely badass. She’s a…

On the Surface

I’ll start this review with something of a disclaimer – I love hockey. I only recently started to go and see my local team but it has turned into what you could call an obsession and since I started going I have been diligently looking for hockey based romance. That might not seem like much of a disclaimer, but I will say that it’s difficult to find one that gets the balance between the romance and the sport right as well as being well-written. On the Surface delivered on all…

The Three by Sarah Lotz UK cover

With the recent spates of terrorism across the globe, Sarah Lotz’s The Three plays with paranoia and conspiracy to ask ‘what if’ and ‘why’ about a global disaster that is not as improbable as it sounds. The book begins with the narrative perspective of Pamela May Donald, an American on a Japanese flight to visit her daughter.
