Review of “Brotherhood in Death” by J.D. Robb

Trigger Warning: BID had graphic depictions of rape/gang rape and this review will include an analysis of Rape Culture.  If this is one of your triggers, please click away now. I actually forgot this book was coming out this month, probably because I absolutely hated the last book and felt the need to completely erase anything that …

Video of the Day–An 80’s Romance

A little while ago I finished reading Brotherhood in Death and I needed something fun and light because I was so ridiculously angry (let’s just say the review is going to have one hell of a trigger warning when I sit down to right it in the morning), so I headed over to YouTube to find something fun …

Video of the Day–Brought to You by Creepy Dolls

I started reading Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb (much better than that last book) and in one scene Eve and Peabody find a room full of dolls.  Both women are freaked out by the sheer number of them and of course this made me think of Dharma and Greg’s second season Halloween episode.  I loved …

Review of “Alone in the Dark” by Karen Rose

Karen Rose novels should come with trigger warnings.  I don’t remember reading any of them that didn’t involve something that would cause a PTSD episode and Alone in the Dark is no different.  To start my review, I am going to offer my own warning, just in case someone stumbles upon this not expecting to encounter harmful …

Throwback Review: “Sea Swept” by Nora Roberts

I finished re-reading Sea Swept late last week and for some reason I have been putting off writing the review.  I don’t know if it has anything to do with the fact that I’ve read this book so many times over the years that all those previous readings color the way I perceived it this time, making …

Video of the Day–“You Complete Me”

https://youtu.be/9zkmE07X7-E   In honor of the Throwback Review of Sea Swept, I thought it would be a good idea to go with an equally throwback song that could have been playing on Anna’s radio, since she mentions listening to Springsteen’s music several times throughout the book.  Chances are she listened to this at one point as this …

Review of “A Gentleman’s Game” by Theresa Romain

A Gentleman’s Game is a very different kind of romance novel.  While it takes place firmly within the Regency Period, it is worlds away from any other Regency novel.  First off, the hero is the younger son of a minor aristocrat whose title only goes a few years back (rather than all those Dukes that …

Video of the Day–Little Johnnie Jones Riding the Ponies in London

http://youtu.be/hgxaAiotvwg​I started reading Theresa Romain’s A Gentleman’s Game and almost immediately, I knew I needed to post this clip.  I tend not to pay much attention to horse racing now that I’m not stuck going to Belmont with my family, so of course, the connection I made with the sport was completely in the realm of …
