Operation – Support Authors Affected by the Shutdown

Operation – Support Authors Affected by the Shutdown

Here we are making history and NOT the good kind. The US government has been shut down for over 30 days and although I know not everyone is feeling the pinch directly, we all know people that are. Most authors work more than full time to make ends meet and those with family members or those that work at entities directly affected by this catastrophe are being hit extra hard. Booked & Loaded is here to make an effort to… Read more »

Book Review: Queen’s Menagerie by MK Mancos

His kindness for others and loving nature created a breath of fresh air in a swarm of Alphas… Read more »

Book Review: Wicked Ever After by Delilah S. Dawson

Book Review: Wicked Ever After by Delilah S. Dawson

Wicked Ever After is the fourth book in Delilah S. Dawson’s Blud series. This steampunk paranormal mix-up is set in a beautifully dark and unique world, but this installment left me a bit uneasy. Dawson did something that is not regularly done in paranormal romance. Wicked Ever After tied up not only the HEA, but their future was laid out as well. I cannot say TOO much about that without revealing spoilers galore. Dawson touched on Tish’s inability to reproduce in… Read more »

Book Review: The Mechanic’s Mate by Mikea Howard

Book Review: The Mechanic’s Mate by Mikea Howard

  The Mechanic’s Mate by Mikea Howard is the first book in The Diesel War series. With great world building and smooth writing, the only thing that didn’t work for me was more of a personal preference than a story issue. I absolutely loved the world building in The Mechanic’s Mate. Set in a an entirely unique world where mechanics and technology caused coas to the shifters and fueling the Diesel War. Post war lines and treaties are holding, but are… Read more »
