Courting Trouble by Jenny Schwartz Review

Courting Trouble

Bustlepunk Chronicles Book Two

By Jenny Schwartz

American inventor Jed Reeve, just had to fall head over heels in love with a suffragette, Esme Smith. Lately he has had an overwhelming urge to protect her, which is the last thing she wants. With his warring emotions he is not in the mood to hear the woes of someone else but when a young man and his cousin come in he cannot turn them away and is soon drug into a plot to assonate the Prince of Wales.

Courting Trouble by Jenny Schwartz

This novel is only about one hundred pages long but in that time Jenny Schwartz packs a ton of action into a cute romance making this quick read truly fun. Though the romance is a bit light since Jed is already in love with Esme, it is still beautiful as he tries his best to woo the headstrong woman. This is definitely one of those books I refer to as a “fluff” novel, it’s fun, it’s short but there isn’t much substance that will leave a lasting impression.

 Moonlight & Mechanicals (Gaslight Chronicles, #4)

There is so much going on in this book, first you have the steam punk aspect which is amazing and reinforced by Wink who inventions are truly fascinating. Then you have Vampires and Werewolves Oh my!, Liam is actually a werewolf and we get to see that side of things with a firsthand perspective when he goes through the change. Now we also have a couple of side story lines such as the world is dying out, wish there was more on that, everywhere that anyone goes they must wear a filter over their nose and mouths because the air is so unstable, really wish there had been more on that. This is an amazing book and Cindy Spencer Pape has done a remarkable job. I have yet to read any of the other books in this series but the author brought to life Wink and all of her siblings so spectacularly that I am dying to find out what will happen next.

How Beauty Met the Beast by Jax Garren Review

How Beauty Met the Beast

Tales of the Underlight Book One

By Jax Garren

Jolie Benoit was always a good girl, the type of girl her high society family expected her to be, but now she is exploring her bad side. She has been working nights as a burlesque dancer when she has a thoroughly satisfying encounter with a gruff stranger who only goes by Wesley. Wesley “Hauk” Haukon is terribly scarred, after serving in Afghanistan he sustained extensive burns over his body, now he works as an Agent for the Underlight. When he meets the beautiful Jolie he knows that there can be nothing between them, that she will never accept his appearance.

 How Beauty Met the Beast by Jax Garren

Holy Moly! First off if you don’t know I am a military wife, one of my worst fears is for my husband to be injured while deployed. That being said I at the same time love and hate Jax Garren she did such a phenomenal job in bringing Hauk’s back story to life I ended up crying, a lot. It’s a fascinating take on the classic Beauty and the Beast tale; not only with the steampunk aspect but also having the “beast” character being injured in such a way makes the character so much more realistic. I absolutely loved this book, and I cannot wait to see what happens next between the star crossed lovers. Hopefully next time I will have a giant box of tissues by my side.
