A story that was a delicate dance.
Review by jeepwonder Jan 11, 2018
We each have our dark moments, and respond to them in our own ways. The author created characters with dark moments, dark sides to their personas. But instead of this being a tale about the descent into darkness she spun a tale about those characters learning to reach for life, to embrace life within the limits fate had placed on them. It was a delicate dance for the people within the book, and it was choreographed with finesse and style. The balance was done from a point of view that accepted … Read More

Shake Up Joyce Palmer
Review by Barj Dec 16, 2017
What a great read. I enjoyed this book from the first page to the last one. There is suspense, action, second chances, villains, shootouts ,I could not put this book down until I was finished it. It is Lacey Parker , Sheriff Jonathan Parker and Jay Lacey's partner in the DEA. This is actually like two stories in one, one is Lacey and Jonathan's part and the other is Lacey and Jay's where they are trying to bring a villain to justice. I received a copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing … Read More

People and pathways
Review by n1ght0wl Dec 28, 2017
I did not read 'Oscar' before reading this and it read well enough alone. Read much like a biography (think interview with a vampire without vampires or paranormals). Readers follow Oscar, an older man, whom is dating a man ten years his junior. The two are out dining together when Oscar makes a confession and suggestion. His lover excuses himself. In the time frame his lover is gone (there was an estimation of about 20mins); Oscar reminisces on his own behavior and actions when he was about his … Read More

Meeting the right person at the right time can change a person's course completely
Review by lacrimsonfemme Dec 27, 2017
For Oscar, he is sleeping this way through life with drugs, sex and alcohol. He embodies the negative stereotype of a gay man who is just in it for the sex - any hole will do. The thing is, Oscar can be so much more. This story starts out in the present with Oscar making a tentative offer to his lover to become an exclusive relationship living together. Or at least, not a long distance relationship with a booty call understanding. Oscar is a well traveled business man who is nervous about … Read More

HOT AND JUICY
Review by mistivelvet Nov 26, 2017
This hot and juicy read kept me enthralled for 400+ pages, which is quite a feat. The protagonist's dark and detailed background elucidates her motivation and complexity. The main characters are expertly constructed. They're complicated and believable, which makes for exciting sex scenes. After a rather slow start the narrative picks up the pace and maintains a nice rhythm. What I appreciate the most about this book is the unpredictability. I was definitely surprised by the twists and turns. Disclaimer: … Read More

Devoured in One Night
Review by mistivelvet Nov 16, 2017
I devoured my review copy of The Submissive Muse in one night. This never happens. The truth is, I don't read much genre fiction. I'm more a fan of nonfiction and literary fiction. I'm cynical. I'm a snob. But enough about me. I was captivated immediately by the engaging (at times poetic) prose and the protagonist, Elizabeth. Right away I could relate to Elizabeth's dissatisfaction with meaningless flings and her hunger for a deeper, more passionate connection. I could also relate to Elizabeth's … Read More

Intriguing
Review by beckyboopbooks Oct 30, 2017
I found the story highly intriguing. The characters are flawed and real, and are not your usual happy, fairy-tale-style protagonists. Some upsetting subject matter if you are triggered by self-harm or suicide - but from the cover and synopsis I was expecting it to be a darker tale. I liked the structure of the novel - flashbacks and present day sections created the contrast necessary to understand the protagonist's state of mind. I would have liked to have explored Elizabeth's first relationship … Read More

Loved it!
Review by lauriebeemer74 Oct 24, 2017
This is the first time I have read a book by this author, and I must say that I am glad that I found his work. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The characters meet, and the meeting is not under the greatest of situations but an unexpected connection occurs. What happens when your survival depends on doing something that you thought you would never do? Could you find happiness with someone that has secrets? Sharon is like many college kids, wanting her freedom but trying to find the funds to … Read More
