Smashwords book reviews by Linsey Lanier

  • Insight on May 28, 2011

    A race of aliens co-mingling with humans, who mate for life - and the females are in control of it all. Love it. Great concept, great story, well written. Perfect prequel to "Bittersweet Obsessions."
  • Wild Child on Sep. 09, 2011

    I love Wild Child. After reading the history of it, I was eager to try it. I have to say Mike Wells is a terrific storyteller. The book's fast pace took my breath away and I was hooked shortly after the first page. I want more of the green water. I will definitely check out Mike's other books.
  • Drool Worthy on Dec. 21, 2011

    This book made my mouth water! And so did the hunky Jason Alexander--definitely drool worthy. A fun, uplifting read that will brighten your day. Tami Brothers is an up and coming talent.
