Smashwords book reviews by mirain

  • Winner Takes It All on July 17, 2020

    This was really good but ends abruptly. Please come back and write more, author!
  • Not Your True Love, But Your True Love on Dec. 03, 2020

    This tale opens in the middle of a friendship, and in the middle of a curse. Through conversation, we expand on the personalities of Mel and Scarlett, and learn how Mel got cursed. It's very understated and really captures the intimacy of individuals who have known each other for a long time without overtly discussing most personal matters. It ended a little abruptly -- I would have liked another pge of coziness. And I totally want to inherit Mel's house and library.
  • Vampire City on April 01, 2022

    Romance or horror? Read and decide for yourself.
  • With Everything I Have on Jan. 05, 2023

    Not quit friends to lovers, because they're both more and less than friends, and already sometime-lovers... It's an interestingly atypical relationship.
  • Madison Square Murders on July 10, 2023

    This is a very solid mystery with unusual and well-developed characters and a strong sense of place and history. Note for readers of Poe's previous works: this is not really a romance, although it has romantic elements, and I think the MCs will get together later in the series.
  • Forget the Mistletoe on Dec. 27, 2023

    This is a short holiday AU of the novel Play It Again, a version where the characters' relationship proceeds differently. I think it's enjoyable as a standalone fake-date romance, but extra pleasing if you've read the original story and wished someone would tell off Charlie's demanding sisters.
  • The Choice on March 03, 2024

    Very creative, unusual, imaginative--and hot. Packs a lot into a small story.
