Charlie Cochet is fast becoming one of my go to authors… Set in the roaring twenties and prohibition this is almost a m/m fairy tale. The wealthy powerful but damaged man and the whore who brings him to life. I loved it. The writing is fast paced and well written. There is no exposition that isn’t also entertaining and enjoyable. At the end my only disappointment was having to leave the world of Edward, Maxfield, Albert, Julius and his friends. 4.75 stars

I loved the characters. Julius, Lawry, Terry, Albert, Maxfield, Edward, Nathan and Harlan. Each one of them now has a place in my heart, and I’m so glad the author gave us the side stories of the secondary characters’ romances. I enjoyed the big screen production feel of the Pantheon stage settings—I swear I could hear the music playing in the background. 4.5 stars

A Rose By Any Other Name is the building of a sweet romance that’s tempered by fear, jealousy, and danger. The descriptions and details Charlie Cochet offers make it easy to picture the Pantheon in one’s imagination, and its atmosphere, combined with its 1920s setting, plays like a classic film in the heyday of Hollywood’s most decadent days. 4.5 stars

It’s sexy and sensual without being overly graphic but more importantly, it’s lip smackingly romantic. I adored the two MC’s as a couple, and I loved what was happening between certain people in the background. The more I look back on it the more I realise how good it was and I am so looking forward to more from Charlie in the historical field. She has such an easy style of writing that I just found myself floating through the whole story. A definite keeper and a must read if you’re a fan. As they would have said in the twenties…that was the Bee’s Knee’s!! 4.5 stars

Cochet is the queen of historical fanciful fiction. She charms me away from reality and glides me into her creative worlds where I’m immersed in another era. 4 stars

I believed in the romance between them, and they are one of those couples that makes me want to say ‘awww, aren’t they sweet!’. I really liked the setting: 1920s swanky cabaret-slash-sex-club that is the Pantheon, with its secret corridors and dark booths where any number if illicit activities might take place. I kinda didn’t want it to end! 4 stars
