One thing KJ Charles is hella good at is writing sex scenes where characters stumble and trip up and things don’t go smoothly and it’s all extremely Not Perfect — AND instead of it being some sort of ridiculous traumatic plot device or a very unsexy Oh Joy Sex Toy style educational segment, somehow the realistic foibles of people trying …

I’m basically Ebeneezer Scrooge on Christmas Morning whenever my hold comes up for a new KJ Charles book. Life is full of promise and there’s still time to correct all my mistakes.

I am going to stay up way too late reading this damn book.

Courtney Stanton reviewed Life on Pause

Sweet but uneven

3 star

This book does one of my least favorite things and creates conflict by having one character knowingly lie to another character, and then continue the lie for an extended period while understanding that doing so is only making the situation worse. I’m not opposed to dishonest characters, it’s just that it’s far more interesting to me when characters are deceiving …

Courtney Stanton reviewed The luckiest lady in London

A fun romp

4 star

This is a good modern historical romance (ie: set in the past but the people behave generally like people and have relatable motives, and the world isn’t mysteriously bereft of queerness or something just because it’s the 1800s) that has some fun twists. I especially enjoyed that the woman takes one look at the guy and is basically like, “oh …
