That's What I'm Talking About

I generally review romance, paranormal and urban fantasy. I tend to pick review books that I want to read, so generally my reviews will be positive. I always give my honest opinion: good, bad, and indifferent.

Size Matters (Lovers on the Fringe, #1) - Stephanie Julian I really enjoyed this novella from Ms. Julian. It’s a quick read full of fun and smokin’ romance. The mythology is very original - I can’t say that I’ve ever read a “Bigfoot romance” before. As corny as it may sound, the story is actually very smart and well written. I enjoyed the pop-culture references (especially since I’m a sci-fi geek) and the thoughtful dialogue between Carrie and Tim.

Although it’s a shorten-length story, the characters are well-developed and interesting. Carrie is an independent woman that can think on her own and has sex because she likes it. The romance is not based on the stars alining or any magicks, just a strong woman that wants a big man. The paranormal is present - Bigfoot, Yeti and a Fae - but it doesn’t dominate the story, giving a entertaining twist on a hot little tryst!

My Rating: 4 stars: Really enjoyed - strongly recommend (A-)
