Loaded March Podfic

Cover made w: original and added text from Preview

So this year I decided to undertake the HUGE project of recording the podfic (an audiobook for a fanfic if you’re not familiar with the term) for the Merlin fic Loaded March by Footloose. As of right now I have parts 1-3 available and part 4 will be out later this spring (school and work are a bitch).

I’d love for you to have a listen and let me know what you think. If you’ve never read Loaded March, you can read it here on AO3. Be warned, it contains 16 parts and is over a million words long!!

You can find my narration of part 1, Radioman, here on AO3 with the option to either stream it or follow the link to download the mp3.

 

Hope you enjoy!

Review for Shadowing the Light (The Bearer of Truth #1) by Miranda Turner

Shadowing the Light (The Bearer of Truth #1)Shadowing the Light by Miranda Turner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this! It has a unique world that drew me in right away and I really loved the MC. Gabriel makes such a great character! He’s snarky and is constantly having to deal with the shit people and life throw at him, including his crazy-powerful “uncles” who I LOVED.

While I labeled this as romance it isn’t really a huge part of this book. Gabriel has a mate, Evander, but at this point they haven’t really gotten into true romance territory. They have an enemies-to-lovers sort of thing going on which I absolutely loved! My only issue is that we’re told at the beginning that Evander is Gabriel’s mate and it’s something they’ve both known for a while. I would have preferred more info on their history, when they discovered what they were to one another, and how they reacted to finding out their mate was the “enemy”. I feel like we miss a lot of the complexity of their relationship and characters by just saying they’re mates, they’ve known they’re mates, and they’re still enemies. I definitely need more info on their past. Hopefully in the next book…

I love the idea of found families and the friends/families that we make, so I loved that the group of side characters have started making that bond and I’m really looking forward to seeing them all grow closer. I was a little annoyed at how fast the group went from hating Gabriel to becoming besties and I feel like that probably could’ve been paced a little better. But I like the endgame we’re working towards so it’s a small complaint.

I’m really looking forward to continuing this series and seeing how all of these relationships grow.

Review for Tutus and Tinsel (Half Moon Bay #2.5) by Rhys Ford

Tutus and Tinsel (Half Moon Bay, #2.5)Tutus and Tinsel by Rhys Ford

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first read Fish Stick Fridays I really loved Zig and watching as Deacon slowly worked at becoming a strong role model for her while falling in love with Lang. So I really loved this short look into how this family has come together and how much they’ve come to mean to one another.

When Zig is given a school assignment to do a presentation on her first Christmas, she gets really upset because she’s had a hard life and Christmas wasn’t something she ever really celebrated in her circumstances. Determined to help her see that making new memories and traditions can be even better than past ones, Deacon and Lang work to give Zig the best holiday possible, full of family, love, and fun.

I really enjoyed seeing them come up with new traditions as they tried to figure out what worked best for the Harris-Reid household, and when Zig gave her final presentation I was holding back tears at how sweet and full of love this little girl is.

If you’re a fan of the Half Moon Bay series then I highly recommend picking up this holiday short. Rhys Ford’s story reminds us that holidays are really about family, the time we spend with them, and the memories that we make.

Review for Sweet Nothings (The Chosen One #0.5) by Macy Blake

Sweet Nothings (The Chosen One, #0.5)Sweet Nothings by Macy Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was so good! I’m so glad we finally get the backstory to how Henry and his brothers and sisters became part of a pack.

Sam and Vaughn make such a great couple. With their compassion and protectiveness, their partnership makes for a wonderful romance and makes them the perfect couple to care for these 6 kids.

I’m really looking forward to the next installment of this series! This prequel was great for holding me over until we get more on Sawyer and his guardians.

Review for Next to Nothing (The Chosen One #3) by Macy Blake

Next to Nothing (The Chosen One #3)Next to Nothing by Macy Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. Just…wow.

This series has quickly become one of my favorite romances of any sub-genre! With lovable characters, plenty of action, LOTS of love, and a plot that keeps you on your toes, Next to Nothing is a wonderful addition to this series!

The relationships between these characters continue to be the driving force behind this series. I really loved seeing Saeward coming into his own and accepting his mates’ love. Henry and Ward in particular were incredibly sweet, but I love all of these men.

Buckle up for this one guys because it’s one hell of a ride! I cannot WAIT to get my hands on the next book!!

Review for The Enchanter’s Flame (The Ellwood Chronicles #1) by Michele Notaro

The Enchanter's Flame (The Ellwood Chronicles #1)The Enchanter’s Flame by Michele Notaro

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


“How in the hell did I wind up in my car with an asshole, a cute kitten, and a creepy as fuck snake? That sounded like the beginnings of a bad joke.”

 

I loved this! Full of snark, magic, danger, and a slow-burn romance, this book hit all my buttons. I really loved the characters, Sebastian especially, and the 1st person narration worked perfectly to keep the audience in the dark about magic and supernatural creatures. Seb’s narration allows the reader to make discoveries along with him as he learns about magic and everything Ailin shows him.

Seb was my favorite character and I really enjoyed being in his head. His insecurities were heartbreaking to read but I loved that insight into his character.

The banter between Ailin and Seb is hilarious and I really enjoyed their dynamic as they begin their new partnership. Car rides with them were so entertaining to read, especially when you add Sera and George!

This was a great new series from Michele Notaro and I can’t wait for the next book to come out so we can learn more about the reveals at the end of this book!

Review for Nothing Ventured (Chosen One #2) by Macy Blake

Nothing Ventured (The Chosen One, #2)Nothing Ventured by Macy Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

 

Question a lot of things, Sawyer. Question it all if you have to in order to figure out why you were chosen. But don’t question how much we love you. I know it happened fast and without us even thinking about it really, but don’t you think some things are meant to be?

I’m really loving this series. The plot is solid, the world interesting, and the characters endear themselves to the reader from the minute they’re introduced on page. Sawyer and his guardians/mates are so wonderful together and I love their dynamic. The stakes have been upped in this book and I’m really looking forward to seeing how everything plays out.

A new guardian is introduced in this book (bringing the guardian count up to 5 out of 8) and he’s so adorable and sweet! I can’t wait to learn more about him and see how Sawyer helps him to heal. The epilogue introduces yet another guardian whose over-the-top, ridiculous self I am chomping at the bit to get to know. Please let book 3 pick up right where this one ended!

Overall, a great poly romance full of fun characters, an engaging plot, and lots of sexy times!
