Relief Valve (2014)
language
English
3.99 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: J.L Merrow does trilogies (if that's what this is)right. A very enjoyable read and the characters kept me interested. I want to read the next one because I wanna know more about Tom and his mate. 4.5 stars. The reason for not giving this one five is because I had to skip a lo...

review 1: Missed marking this as read: I do find this author’s sense of humour meshes nicely with my own so I always find her books enjoyable and this was no different, although I think Jude would have exhausted me in real life.Jude is living with him mum, working in the vegan coffee shop...

review 1: I hate writing about novellas, they are so short!!!Ok Ted is all sad, time-travels, meets a whore and pants are down. Ahem, little fast there Ted. But luckily they quickly fall in love too, but oh no, can Ted continue to time-travel?!?! Oh that sound a bit like dissing, but excep...

review 1: I find I have mixed feelings bout this book; don't get me wrong, I liked it quite a bit, but I may actually need some time to process it. This story revolves around Paul, an Englishman who had been working in Iceland when a tragic accident killed his lover, Sven, and left him wi...

review 1: 4.25 of 5What I wanted more of: I would have liked to know more about Phil (hope to know him better in the next book in the series) and I was disappointed there wasn't more of a resolution for one of the background characters. The ending was a bit abrupt as well. Is it bad that I...
Camwolf (2011)
language
English
3.38 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I liked it!I don't understand why this one doesn't have a higher rating. Perhaps because it isn't the standard recognize-the-fated-mate-on-first-sight sort of shifter tale. Dunno. I'm not really crazy about that over-used trope anyway!There was a good plot here, and enjoyable cha...
Muscling Through (2011)
language
English
3.97 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: A simple (in the traditional sense) man and an intellectual fall in love. It shouldn't work. There should be an imbalance. We should be constantly questioning what these two see in each other and we should be left, at the end, wondering just how much longer they'll last. It shoul...
It's All Geek to Me (2014)

English

review 1: I felt kind of let down by this one. It didn't go the way I expected, and though I think the ending was cute and am glad it worked out for Jez and Rhys, I kinda feel like the title and blurb were just a bit of a bait & switch. Though, in the interest of fairness, I suppose Jez & ...

review 1: Liking J.L.Merrow books and as Berlin is my favourite city in the world I thought this would be a really good read - pity I didn't read the precis before jumping in with both feet. Had I realised this was a werewolf book I definitely would have thought twice. However I did get it...

review 1: I was going to just leave the good rating, but I think this book deserves an actual review. This book was unique among MM's and I find myself recalling tidbits about it whenever I see the cover In my book listings. I really like how the mc is just kind of going along in life when...

review 1: A hook up that kept Chris thinking about Josh for six months since the night he met the young boy before Chris left for Afghanistan.I really admire authors who feature characters with disability mainly because it somehow shows how creative they are in developing their characters ...
Wight Mischief (2011)
language
English
3.63 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I wanted to like it, I really did, but the stupidity of some of the characters was just too much to bear. The characters are painfully underdeveloped. The main characters felt like tropes. The villain so obvious he should have been wearing neon colors, twirling his mustache, and ...

English

review 1: I read this story years ago when it was in the Sindustry anthology. It was a great story then but much improved by the lengthier version in this re-release. The end has been revised and more detail added which made me much happier about how the story ended. It's also added a lot ...
Tortoise Interruptus (2011)
language
English
3.3 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Tortoise Interruptus by JL Merrow is a delightfully whimsical novelette at 10, 800 words set on the Isle of Wight. It features a great title, one third-person viewpoint (Tip), and a non-explicit sex scene. Readers who might especially enjoy Tortoise Interruptus may include fans o...
Batteries Not Included (2010)
language
English
3.22 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This is definitely a story that is completely creative and not meant to be taken literally,as some of the reviewers seem to have done. I love that J.L. Merrow comes up with such interesting ideas for stories--hers are not the standard in-love-with-my-roommate stories, though if s...

English

review 1: Oh yep another tiny excerpt which I hate because just as things start getting interesting you get to the inevitable last page and its all done and dusted. I wanted more, there wasn't enough of a story for me to love it, if it was ever expanded into a novel then I would definitely...
Stroke to His Cox (2011)
language
English

review 1: Of all Jamie’s many short stories, I think this has to be my favourite. Not only is it extremely amusing with two lovable leads, but I learnt a huge amount about rowing and there’s a hot boathouse sex scene to top it all off. I love an “opposites attract” romance, and this is a p...

review 1: * 3.75* What a charming and endearing little tale, set around Christmas and involving the lonely lord of the manor and the young scamp poacher who he ends up looking after,when he falls from an old oak tree whilst trying to collect mistletoe for his mam. This is a very quick read...
A Real Boy (2009)
language
English
2.91 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is a short story by J.L.Merrow, a take on the Pinnochio story of a wooden puppet, probably familiar to most children through the Disney film of that name. Yet this is a story that has similar characters, most main elements of the original story but with a twisted deviancy as...

review 1: Several reviewers have already pointed out Merrow's recycling prowess. I'll forgive Merrow that, since I put up with Calmes, Kell, and Glenn, and we can't hardly have double standards, innit?What isn't acceptable is this book: Merrow displays NONE of her writing abilities here. T...
