Review: Magenta Mine (Invertary #3) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson

Steffi’s Review Janet Elizabeth Henderson convinces in this hilarious, quirky and very sweet Invertary novella!

After all, she is the love of his life. Magenta comes off […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Reviews Splage says: 5 Stars! This is the second book I’ve read by Barbara Elsborg and both have been big hits with me.

He uses women, one night stands only, and he tries to do things to make people hate him even more. But, he’s the […]
