Reviews

Demigods of San Francisco

Sin & Chocolate (#1)
"Sin & Chocolate isn’t simply a stage-setter. Breene drops you in a maelstrom of chaos in a chasm of deadly mystery with huge currents of hilarity."

Whiskey & Wit Book Reviews

"I really, really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it to any and all fans of K.F. Breene and Ilona Andrews."

Books and Blurbs, 5 out of 5 stars

"This series had me laughing often and the action is fantastic."

Books in Her Eyes

"I really enjoyed the pacing of this romance. It had moments of intensity annd right when I thought it was moving too fast, the MC’s seem to pull back and refocus on the bigger picture. And the kids add so much family aspect to this story."

Celebrity Readers, 4 out 5 stars

Sin & Magic (#2)
"This series could not – for real… COULD NOT – be more addictive."

Whiskey & Wit Book Reviews

"This series had me laughing often and the action is fantastic. I like so much of this series and can only hope that we will be getting more– a spin-off, or something."

Books in Her Eyes

Sin & Salvation (#3)
"Sin & Salvation gives readers plenty of closure but there are a lot of sneaky “Now Whats” planted throughout – Breene: Master Gardener, Ultimate Spy, Bread Crumb Tosser…"

Whiskey & Wit Book Reviews

"This series had me laughing often and the action is fantastic. I like so much of this series and can only hope that we will be getting more– a spin-off, or something."

Books in Her Eyes

Sin & Spirit (#4)
"The danger is off the charts and there were some heart stopping moments but we also get to see Lexi learn even more about her abilities and watch the group really come together to fight against their enemies. The battle is only just beginning and I can't wait to see where the series takes us next."

Feeling Fictional

"Not only does K.F. Breene crow bar a humongous amount of plot, funnies, smexy time, action and adventure into this book, she also throws a huge side serving of heart break into it too."

Louise's Book Buzz

Sin & Lightning (#5)
"This series has definitely become a favourite and I'm sure fans will love this latest instalment!"

Feeling Fictional

"This was another great book in the Demigods of San Francisco series. I really like what Breene has done with the relationship between Kieran and Lexi and can’t wait to watch it develop more in future books."

Book Binge

Sin & Surrender (#6)
"As sad as I am to reach the end of this series I'm very happy to say it ends on a high note...There is action and intrigue, witty banter between the main team, more romance between Leix and Kieran plus we get to see Daisy and Mordecai show the magical elite exactly what they're made of."

Feeling Fictional

"I don't have the words to express how much I enjoyed this. It's a great ending to a brilliant series."

A Romance Reader's Review

The Darkness

Leveling Up

Deliciously Dark Fairytales

A Ruin of Roses (#1)
"A Ruin of Roses was a book I absolutely devoured. It has all the main requirements for a retelling so the story has a familiar feel to it but at the same time the author has put in enough of her own world building to also make it feel fresh and exciting."

Feeling Fictional

"This is the adult retelling of Beauty and The Beast you didn’t know you needed. Crude, hysterical, and oddly action-packed, it’s a shifter dream"

Books and Blurbs

"A Ruin of Roses is a spicy Beaty and the Beast retelling! [...] The whole book was just so much fun"

Book Book Owl

"Sparkling, irreverent wit most times snarky & rare times brilliant, this is vintage K.F. Breene. The lines of Finley & Hadriel & their interactions are rife with humor which is guaranteed to elicit laugh out loud moments."

Sathya's Review

"A sinfully wicked five stars!"

Caro's Reads

"A dark, twisty fairytale with sexual tension that kept me turning the pages"

C.N. Crawford, bestselling author of the Shadow Fae Series

"It was the dark, romantasy, fairytale I've been wanting. It's raw and delicious andI couldn't put it down... The undeniable energy between them crackles with carnality. Beware the broody dragons and sex demons."

Lady of Bookshire

A Throne of Ruin (#2)
"A Throne of Ruin takes everything I loved about A Ruin of Roses and builds on it. More of the snarky humour, more of Finley's protective instincts to protect the people around her, a few more layers peeled back from the mysterious and sexy Nyfain not to mention plenty of kink."

Feeling Fictional

"A stunning read, with the characters growing so much in this one and the story coming along at a great pace. [...] breathtaking and gritty"

All Things Dark and Dirty

"This is another slam-dunk for K.F. Breene"

Caro's Reads

A Kingdom of Ruin (#3)
"I have loved this series from the first book but it just keeps getting better and better with every installment...There were some great revelations in this book and things are only going to get more interesting in the next book thanks to the way things ended."

Feeling Fictional

Secret of McKinley Mansion

Classy Book Reviews
