Review for Light of the Spirit by Lisa Kessler - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

The gods never sleep...

As the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy, Lia Youlos lights up every room with laughter and smiles. But there are darker forces at work, and they want to snuff out her light forever.

Cooper Hanover is a hardworking paramedic who healed Lia after a fire, but something happened that day, something medical science couldn't explain. And if he doesn't figure out how it works soon, the next healing could kill him.

Lia's smile and sharp wit tempt him to love again, and he's not going to let anyone, not even the gods, take her from him.


The Prophecy - "Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse."


MY REVIEW -

Love this series! It's lots of fun, and I totally love the premise! If you are a new reader to this series, I advise you to start with the first book in the series because although each book is a different couple, there is a larger storyline throughout the whole series. In this book, Lia is the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy, and her and her muse "sisters" are in danger from a group that wants to release Kronos into the world today, and that group believes the muses will get in the way of that, so they want them dead. Each muse is suppose to have a guardian, and Lia thinks she may have found hers in Cooper, but she's unsure how to broach the subject with him, and Cooper has some walls up that make Lia wary. Love the suspense in this series, and enjoy the romance! The romance is sweet and hot, and I enjoy reading about each muse finding their guardian. The bigger storyline is also really interesting, and I'm really excited to see where Lisa Kessler is going to take the story. Love the muse premise, and love the Greek mythology throughout the story. Wonderful addition to this terrific series!

Review for Flirting with Death by Ali Winters - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Being a reaper has its perks, but also its downsides.
While on an assignment, Evander is caught off guard by an unmarked human. Captivated, he is unable to tear himself away.

This is why reapers don’t associate with mortals.

Piper was ordinary, just a girl looking for love. And all she knows is that her current boyfriend isn’t it. An unfortunate incident and a series of remarkable events turn her world upside down.
But what she finds is the last thing she ever expected—She finds herself falling for the least likely candidate.


MY REVIEW -

This was an interesting short story in Ali Winters' The Hunted Series! Very quick read, and a fun read for any fan of The Hunted Series, which I totally am! In this short story, Evander is a Reaper out on a reap when he meets Piper, and feels a strong connection to her, but as a Reaper he shouldn't feel anything for the living. I enjoyed the connection between Piper and Evander, and I enjoyed getting another glimpse into The Hunted series world! I think the idea for this series is super cool! I enjoyed the setting for this story, and am interested to see where this story fits into the main book of the series! After reading the full books, The Reapers and The Exodus, this is definitely an entertaining and unique series that I find great!

But will she learn to love again?


Over Knight’s dead body.

Exclusive Excerpt


It was love at first sight. A late ‘60s Mustang fastback body style, matte black paint job, matte black rims, blacked out windows, and a massive open-air scoop on the hood. It looked like something straight out of Mad Max.


“Can I help you with somethin’?”


I turned and met the amused stare of a broad shouldered, baby-faced, blue-eyed mechanic. His dirty-blond hair was pushed back in a messy pompadour. His forearms were covered in hot rod tattoos. His pouty bottom lip was pierced. And his name was embroidered on the A&J Auto Body shirt hugging his hard chest.


Hellooo, Harley.


“Sorry,” I sputtered. “I know I’m probably not supposed to be back here, but I…” I looked back up at the beast on the lift and a deep longing seized my chest. “I just can’t leave her.”


Harley—if that was even his real name—chuckled and said, “So, you like the ladies, huh?”


“What? No!” I snapped.


“Good.” The mechanic smiled, and the twinkle in his mischievous blue eyes reminded me just how much I liked boys.


Trying to bring the subject back to cars and away from my sexual orientation, I looked around the garage and pointed to my faded black hatchback on the farthest lift. “I drive the baby version of this.”


Harley glanced over at my most prized possession and nodded in approval. “Five-oh, huh? Not bad. Manual or automatic?”


“Manual,” I groaned.


“No shit? Your boyfriend teach you how to drive that thing?”


“No,” I said, letting my mouth hang open in pretend offense.


“Ah,” Harley nodded. “You met him after you got the car.”


“I don’t have a boyfriend,” I said, rolling my eyes. I had to bite the insides of my cheeks to keep from smiling. God, he was cute. The guy had a face like James Dean and a body like Dean Cain. And that accent. Living in the south, Southern accents are a dime a dozen, but Harley’s was just subtle enough to be cute. Cute, cute, cute.


Harley smirked at me and asked, “Your old man must be a car guy then, huh?”


“You got me,” I smiled. “I’ve been hoarding all his old Muscle Car magazines since I was a kid. I used to cut out all the Mustang pictures and tape them to my bedroom walls, but the tape fucked up the sheetrock so my mom bought one of those clear plastic shower curtains with the photo pockets and—”


Harley held up a hand to silence me. “I’m gonna have to stop you right there,” he beamed, “’cause right now all I can picture is you in the shower and I’m pretty sure I’m not gonna be able to process another word you say.”


Oh my God!


I could feel the prickly heat of a blush creeping up my neck. I bit the insides of my cheeks to keep my face from splitting open into a blotchy, big-toothed grin caused by his sexy little comment had caused. This guy, Harley, had to be in his early twenties, he was fiiiine as hell, and he was flirting with me.


Having no idea how to respond to that, I tried again to change the subject. “So, what do you drive?”


“Hmm…” Harley tilted his head and smirked. “Why don’t you take a guess?”


Oh, we’re playing games now. Okay…


I tapped my lips with my fingertips and eyed him, thinking hard.


“You strike me as a…Volkswagen Beetle kinda guy.”


Harley almost laughed, then quickly scowled, trying to look offended.


“No? Oh, I got it. PT Cruiser.”


Harley pursed his ample lips, fighting back a grin.


“Wood-paneled Pinto?”


That one had him wrinkling his nose in genuine horror.


“Oh, I know—it’s a trick question! You drive a Vespa!”


Snort.


I was running out of ideas, so I looked around the shop and spotted a ‘64 Impala lowrider. “Ooh! I found it. Right there,” I said, pointing to the hoopty. “The gold rims were a nice touch. I bet you even put hydraulics on it, didn’t you?”


Harley finally let out the laugh he’d been biting back. It was deep and raspy and made my insides tingle. “You’re getting warmer,” he said. “It’s actually on hydraulics right now.” Harley lifted an oil-smudged finger and pointed to the matte black sex machine above my head.

(subject to change)

Review for Dragon Got Your Tongue by Julia Mills - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Book 24 in the Dragon Guard series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

Take one fed-up Queen of the lions, add one foolhardy Dragon Guardsman then mix-in the wildest matchmaker in the universe and you’ve got a rollercoaster ride of mayhem, mischief and mate-trimony.

Savannah’s tried everything to find the mate she’s meant to spend her life with and quite frankly, she’d rather be declawed than meet another crazy male cat.

Hayes’ clan is full of lovebirds instead of dragons and be honest, he’s disgusted by the whole damn thing.
But Fate won’t be denied…right?

When her Pride is threatened and his Clan is called in to help, there’ll be more than flying fur and soaring scales.

This Queen has met her match and she’ll get no say in the matter.
After all, her Dragon’s got her Tongue…


MY REVIEW -

Love Julia Mills' stories! Fun, Sweet, Sexy, quick reads! Love her dragon shifters! In Dragon Got Your Tongue, we also get some lion shifters! Savannah is the Queen of her pride, and after her parents were murdered, she had to become Queen at an young age, so she hasn't taken much time for herself, so she ends up asking a matchmaker to help her find her soul mate. Hayes has also been in contact with the matchmaker, and is in search of his soul mate. Once these 2 meet, it's very passionate, very quickly! Since there are both already shifters, and know about the whole soul mate thing, these 2 don't waste any time! Loved the mystery with who is messing with Savannah's pride, and enjoyed the action, and all of the characters. The only thing weird was that the matchmaker thing wasn't really mentioned very much after the beginning. I always enjoy Julia Mills' stories, so I'll definitely continue to read more by her!

Review for Split-Second Lifetime by Denise Kahn - 4 out of 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -


On a business trip from the U.S. to Paris, Jebby meets Dodi on a flight. Jebby is an ethnomusicologist, and Dodi is an international photographer. They are immediately attracted to each other, but from the very first moment Dodi triggers what seems like past life memories for Jebby of a poignant and passionate time they shared together. As Jebby tries to figure out if she is “losing it” or if past lives really do exist, they embark on a path of adventure and romance where lifetimes and cultures interweave in modern day Paris, Uzbekistan, and in the old Southwest. Jebby and Dodi live their unusually diverse and rich adventure and romance, surrounded by an international cast and superb musicians. At the same time Jebby discovers where the Hopi originated from, that death is not a finality, love transcends lifetimes, and music is eternal.



MY REVIEW -

This a really interesting story, that isn't the usual type of thing I read, but I really enjoyed the story! This book deals with love through time, and the characters are on a wonderful journey through Uzbekistan, where they meet some interesting people in their quest to discover some unique music. This story has a lot of heart, and I found the story wonderful. The only that hit weird with me was some things in the end that I felt took me too much out of the story, but overall, I enjoyed this book. I listened to the audio version of this book, and the recording isn't the best, but as the story progresses I enjoyed the listening experience. The narrators do other accents, which I think they both did a great job with, so in the end, I liked the listening experience.

MY REVIEW -

So far, this review is only for Wendy Knight's story, The Soul's Allegiance

This is an enjoyable book for this series, you should definitely read the first book in this series, as this one has spoilers for that book. In this book, we get the POV from Navi's friends, Konstanz and Bryson, this book shows their thoughts during some of the events that took place in book one, and we get to see how Konstanz and Bryson's relationship developed into more despite Bryson feeling an infatuation with Navi. There is some rehashing of the events in the first book, but I enjoyed getting a better understanding of Bryson and Konstanz because they weren't exactly my favorites after reading book one, The Soul's Agent. I was really ticked at Konstanz for interfering in Navi and Alec's relationship, and I was also ticked at Bryson for being a douche at times, so I liked getting to see more of where they were coming from, so I could root for them more. I will admit that I enjoy Navi and Alec as characters more, but I stilled enjoyed the progression of the romance between Konstanz and Bryson, and these two have some cute moments. Fun read for anyone who enjoyed the first book, and of course, Wendy Knight's writing is on point! This book still has some of the action that the first book does, and keeps me wanting to keep on reading! This is a wonderful series, and I want more!

Review for Keeper by Amy Daws - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

They were best friends until they became roommates.
Booker Harris has spent the last several years pushing himself to become the best goalkeeper in the Championship League. Tired of living in the shadows of his headline-splashing brothers, he has finally carved a path of his own.
As a child, Poppy McAdams was content in her own little make-believe world, until the boy next door with dimples and pained eyes came barreling into her makeshift fort demanding all her attention.
Best friends for most of their lives, everything changes when Poppy abruptly leaves London for University.
Now she is back, and gone is the awkward girl from Booker’s youth. She has been replaced by a stunning woman with secrets. Secrets that Booker is desperate to know.
Sharing a bedroom wall with your best friend from childhood quickly turns to anything but sweet and innocent.


MY REVIEW -

Keeper was really great! Love the friends to lovers, second-chance romance scenario! This is a really cute story! Booker and Poppy are adorable together! I loved that they've been best friends since they were little kids, it just adds to the depth of their connection. I loved that Booker wasn't a womanizer like his brothers, and he was such a sweetie! I loved Poppy's quirkiness too! It's great when the Harris family all gets together, it makes for some fun times! Amy Daws does a wonderful job of infusing humor into her writing that just adds to my enjoyment while reading her books! Really loving this series, and I'm excited for Gareth Harris' story! Love a gruff leading man!

Over Knight’s dead body.

*Due to excessive profanity, violence, graphic sexual content, and themes of juvenile drug use and delinquency, this book is not intended for—and should probably be completely hidden from—anyone under the age of eighteen.


MY REVIEW -

Love, Love, Love, Love! Love BB's writing! Love Knight! Love the romance! Love the rawness! This is Harley's book, but really for me this is still Knight's book. Ahhh Knight, I love him so much! I devour every word from him in this book! I may or may not have searched out his name on my Kindle before I started reading Speed because I couldn't wait to see how he's doing! He's adorably sweet with how much he cares for and loves BB, and despite knowing that Knight and BB just weren't meant to have their happily ever after, I still hold hope for this sweetly intense couple to be together forever! But alas, my heart will forever ache for Knight. Knight may not be for everybody, but he's definitely for me. You should totally read Skin before reading this book, so you can have the full story. BB Easton's writing is raw and passionate, and I adore how she tells a story. I love her humor! Speed starts off where Skin ended, BB's heart is broken because Knight has joined the Marines, and she misses him terribly. BB ends up meeting a new bad boy, Harley comes into BB's life bringing her some much needed levity after the intense relationship she had with Knight. Harley is a bit older than BB, a tattooed, sexy mechanic, who has a bit of a reputation, but BB is instantly attracted, and grasps at this opportunity to block out the pain she has been feeling. Fast cars and hot men! Lots of fun! Lots of sexy times! Now these sexy times aren't tame, so be prepared for some kinktastic, dirty sex! Now Harley doesn't hold a candle to Knight for me, but woah boy! the way BB describes him definitely gives me some sexy thoughts, but BB definitely deserves someone as devoted to her as Knight, so Harley, despite his sexy ways, just didn't touch my heart. I'm so sad that I now have to wait until the next book to get my fix! I'll just have to re-read Skin and Speed! Definitely read this uniquely wonderful story!

Review for Sugar and Spice by RE Hargrave - 3 out of 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Lacey Harrison has been dealt an unexpected hand in life: being a single mom. With her father's help and that of the residents at Royal Hills Nursing Home, she thrives and goes on to become a successful baker. She is content with her life but knows that she and her daughter Candy are missing something. Will things change for the better when Trent Childress moves into town and adds some spice to her sugar?


MY REVIEW -

This is an okay story. It's all pretty basic, there's not much character development and the characters are all rather flat. This is an easy, wholesome. I listened to the audio version, and the narrator did a decent job with the story, and he had a nice tone. I went with a 3 stars because the story does have some interesting moments, and it is a cute story. Lacey is a single mother, who finds new love with Trent. The setting is a small town, which is fun to hear about, and I liked the side characters. I was hoping there would be some angst with Lacey's ex, but I was disappointed with that. So yeah, this is a very quick read that doesn't go to deeply into the story.

Review for A Darkening of Magic by JL Clayton - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Have you ever wondered what made Crispin so wicked; why his heart is so black? What drives his hunger for total control, and his need to cause such horror and pain to others? Was he born this way, or did something horrific happen to him as a child? What goes on behind those dark, hauntingly beautiful, blue eyes?
Step into the mind of a killer. He is charming, cunning, and his velvet voice will enchant you. Is Crispin really as evil as he is portrayed, or is there more hidden beneath the skin?
Now you can find out all about Crispin, and what makes him tick.


MY REVIEW -
This is a great prequel! Loved the writing, and this story definitely makes me want to see where this story is going to go. This book is rather sad, and I like getting to see why someone has turned towards the dark side. It's good when bad guys have depth. Crispin's father is an evil man, who is power hungry, and wants to make Crispin into a magically powerful person. Although, Crispin has had a terrible upbringing, I still think he has the intelligence and knowledge to be a better person than he is, so I was hoping to see a bit more humility from him, but I get that he wouldn't be a villain if that were the case. I don't know why I was thinking this was a YA story, but let me tell you it's not, there's sex, murder, and some dark images. I enjoyed the macabre sort of feeling to the story, so I'd definitely like to read more in this series and from JL Clayton! I listened to the audio version of this story, and the narrator did an excellent job! She has a clear, smooth voice, and I enjoyed her reading, so I'd recommend the audio version of this book if you have the option.

Review for Lure of the Tiger by Anna Lowe - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Tiger shifter Cruz Khala doesn’t trust humans, and for good reason. He doesn’t trust destiny, either — not even when it sends him the one woman capable of waking the sunny side of his tortured soul. But there’s more than love at stake as merciless shifter forces converge on sunny Maui, all of them intent on stealing a priceless jewel with mysterious powers.

ALOHA SHIFTERS: JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story is a page-turner packed with action, emotion, and romance! If you like Magnum, PI and smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifters, you'll love these books!


MY REVIEW -

This is my favorite series by Anna Lowe! Love the Hawaiian setting and I love that we get to see different types of shifters! And as with Anna Lowe's other series, I love the action! Lots of fun! In this one, we get tiger shifter, Cruz's story, he's the gruff, silent type, and I love that! His family was murdered, and he's been seeking revenge for it. Cruz ends up meeting, Jody, who has some dangerous people after her, so Cruz steps in the help her out; despite his misgivings. Cruz is wonderful, and I liked Jody too! And of course, there's some sexy times! Anna Lowe sure does write some awesomely hot sex scenes! The magical jewels are super awesome too! I'm super excited to read Silas' story, and excited to see where this story is going to go!

Review for The Billionaire's Bed by Eileen Cruz Coleman - 3 out of 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Determined to impress his ex-girlfriend, billionaire tech investor Fin Bradley decides to throw a grand, Gatsby-style party, at his mansion in Long Island, New York.
His plan is to win back Kelly, the woman who broke his heart years ago, and make her realize how wrong she was for dumping him when he was broke and down on his luck.

The guests arrive on time and soon the soiree is in full swing, and Fin feels confident the night will end according to plan. But that plan changes when he starts falling for Maria, his household personal assistant. Before the night ends, Fin will need to decide to whom his heart really belongs and who should join him in the billionaire's bed.


MY REVIEW -


This book is fun and interesting, but I would've liked more character development, and I also would've liked the ending to have some more oomph! Fin grew up poor and was dumped by his rich girlfriend when his football career ending due to an injury, but now Fin is super rich, and wants to show his ex-girlfriend his success, so he throws this super extravagant party. This party has politicians, movie people, and many more wealthy people, and they are all getting drunk and going insane in a hedonistic way. Trying to prove who has the biggest wallet and all that. Fin wants to sleep with his ex-girlfriend, but he also feels an attraction towards his house assistant, Maria, so Fin goes back and forth on what and who he really wants. The party makes for lots of funny scenes, and these people are nuts man! I was getting tired of Fin's need to prove himself to his ex because it was coloring his view of his ex, and I wanted him to be more sure in himself. There's some sweet parts, and most of the side characters are fun, so I did enjoy this story, but I just didn't feel satisfied enough by the end. It's a quick, fun read though, so if your looking for some quick entertainment, The Billionaire's Bed is a good read.

Review for Resistance on Ice by S.R. Grey - 4 out 5




SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -


Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.

Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is determined to keep at arm’s length. That’s why, after a few sexy encounters, he unceremoniously blows her off.

When they’re reunited, facing off against the fiery cocktail waitress becomes the challenge of his life. Lainey is furious with him for dumping her and wants nothing more than to kick him in the junk. But Nolan—typical man—is only interested in getting Lainey back in his bed.

That plan is shot all to hell when they reach a shaky truce and Lainey drops the bomb that all she’s looking for now is a "just friends" relationship with Nolan.

Take that, Mr. Hot Right Winger!

Suddenly, the "know-it-all" athlete is skating on thin ice as he tries to hide his burgeoning feelings from the one woman who has the ability to thaw his heart. But is Lainey willing to try a relationship with him again? Can Nolan resist the urge to walk away?

MY REVIEW -

Fun story with great writing! Love the humor! I was excited to read Lainey and Nolan's story after reading the first book in this series, and I was a bit disappointed with this book starting with Lainey and Nolan apart, and I was super disappointed in Nolan! 9 strippers in 2 days! Ewww!!! Just so much eww!! Nolan had a really long way to go with me in seeing him in a better light, and I was really hoping that Lainey would make him really work to get back with her, but she doesn't resist for long, so I was a bit disappointed with that. I wanted her to stand her ground! I also felt like Lainey had more quirk to her after reading about her in book 1 some, but she didn't really have anything that made her stand out. I also wanted Nolan to be more assertive, but he just keeps making excuses, and I was getting tired of it, so I can see how Lainey was getting tired of it. Nolan has some past hurts that make him a manwhore, but I was still having a hard time with him. Everything else was great and entertaining, and these two have some hot times! They also have some fun times, and I liked seeing them connect in a way besides a sexual way. Nolan can be sweet sometimes, and these two can be adorable together. The hockey aspect is always entertaining too! I look forward to the next book, it's Benny's book, who is another manwhore unfortunately, but it's bound to be an entertaining one! Love to see manwhores find their true love! I'm also excited for Dylan's story! I listened to the audiobook version of this story, and the narrator does a great job. Smooth, clear tone!

Review for So I Married a Sorcerer by Kerrelyn Sparks - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Growing up on the Isle of Moon, Brigitta knows nothing of her past, except that she is Embraced: born with powers that forced her into hiding. Everything changes when she learns she’s a princess, hidden away from her villainous half-brother who now rules the kingdom. But he knows about Brigitta, and he’ll do anything to get her back. Unless a certain roguish pirate has anything to say about it…

Rupert is both an infamous pirate and a sorcerer with the power to harness the wind. He’s been waiting nineteen years for revenge—and he needs Brigitta to get it. What begins as a kidnapping of the fiery beauty turns into a fierce attraction. But can he win the captive princess’s heart?



MY REVIEW -

This is lots of fun, and has a really sweet romance! There's pirates, royalty, magical abilities, dragons, and fun adventures! Loved the whole premise for this book! I always enjoy Kerrelyn Sparks' books, so I was looking forward to checking this one out! I haven't read the first in the series, and although, it would've been great to read the first book before this one, I didn't feel lost in the story at all, so I think this could be read as a standalone just fine. Brigitta is traveling by boat with her "sisters" to visit her other "sister" during her pregnancy. Brigitta was born with a special power, and she was sent away to a hidden island because those with powers are killed, there she met other women, who also have types of powers, and they became as close as sisters. While on route, a pirate kidnaps Brigitta, but there is a lot more to the kidnapping then just the ransom, there's revenge on the mind. The pirate Rupert knows more than he lets on to Brigitta, and he has some plans in place that may not be in the best interest of Brigitta. Lots of dangerous situations to be had! I loved the backstory for both Brigitta and Rupert, and I loved seeing them grow to care for each other. They are too cute! They have a great connection! Wonderful story telling, and this book is totally entertaining! Definitely looking forward to the next books, and I need to go read the first book now! Love the premise for that one!

Review for Failure to Stop by Terry Towers - 4 out of 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Since when did the procedure for giving someone a ticket for running a stop sign include a very hands-on pat-down against the hood of my car, not even giving me a chance to see his face? I swear, cop or not he's getting very close to getting Tasered; my hand was mere inches from the Taser in my open purse. But despite the high inappropriateness of his pat-down there was something very familiar about the way he was touching me - even the scent of his cologne triggered familiarity.

I never dreamed when the inappropriate, yet highly erotic frisking was over that I'd be standing face to face with my former high school sweetheart, town troublemaker and love of my life Devon Land. But there he was with a cocky smirk, looking sexier than I remembered and thoroughly enjoying my surprise.

One big mistake cost me the upscale life in New York I'd grown to love, forcing me to return home to Alabama. I swore I'd never move back to my small town, I'd outgrown it, but with a temptation like Devon intent on reminding me of the life I'd once left behind its becoming a challenge to leave a second time.


MY REVIEW -

This is a second chance love story, which I adore reading second chance, so I loved that aspect, but I did want more character development and romantic development between the characters. The romance is sweet, the characters are likable, and I liked the small town setting. Violet has returned home after some surprising information comes out about the guy she's been "dating", so she ends up going back to her small hometown to get her head back on straight. When she arrives home, she runs into her high school boyfriend, Devon, they both are excited to see the other, but some past and present hurts may get in the way of them starting a new relationship. These 2 loved each other deeply when they were younger, and I enjoyed the connection between the two. Devon is such a sweetie! I was so sad for him! Some devious deeds caused problems for Devon and Violet in the past and present, so these two need to work through some painful situations if they are going to try to be in a relationship again, which I enjoyed reading how that would play out, and I would've actually have loved for there to be more angst with this situation, but this book is fairly short, so it didn't quite go into that enough. I also would've liked for there to be a bit more in the ending. Overall, this book is an interesting read, and I'd recommend it! I listened to the audio version of this story, and the narrator did a great job! Fun little accent!

Review for Unsupervised by Cora Kenborn - 4 out of 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Niall

I have twenty-eight days to find the perfect wife…

On paper, it seems like I need a life coach, but I’ve managed to get a decent grip on the single-dad thing. As a sought-after photographer with a sexy Irish accent, I have no problem attracting women. Especially crazy ones who can’t take no for an answer. But now, I’m backed in a corner, and both mine and my daughter’s futures are being threatened.
The plan is simple: find a fake fiancée, introduce her at my company’s gala, and save my job. A chance meeting with a tall, leggy blonde who looks like she could use a night out is the perfect solution. Beautiful, sane, and she has a kid? We have a winner.
The relationship is a ruse, but I didn’t count on her being unforgettable. A lie brought us together, but now I have no intention of letting her go.

Laken

I can’t buy my way onto Madison Avenue…

I didn’t bust my ass in college to be a nanny. Unfortunately, a 4.0 GPA and sucking up did nothing to secure me a coveted Tate & Cane internship. I’m not proud of being a nanny-for-hire to get my foot in the door, but my wealthy employer has connections, so I do what I need to—until one outrageous proposal changes everything.
In one afternoon, I find myself fake engaged with a fake new family. I’m not a liar, but he assumes the kid is mine. I should set the record straight. There’s only one problem. My new “fiancé” is a photographer for Tate & Cane. He’s my “in.”
If I can hold on to this charade long enough, I can get the job and the man of my dreams. I’m winging this completely unsupervised. Game on.


MY REVIEW -

This is a fun, cute story. The characters are a little kooky, but that added to some of the humorous situations. This book is a lighthearted read, and doesn't delve too deep into the emotions of the characters. Laken is having a hard time finding a job in her field, Niall has a skeezy woman at work that won't take no for an answer and threatens his job and his daughter's education if he doesn't sleep with her (Eww!), so he tells her he has a fiancée to hopefully get her to back off, but the problem is that the skeezy woman wants to meet this fiancée that Niall doesn't quite have, so when he meets Laken at the park, he offers her an in at the company he works for if she'll pretend to be his fiancée. She agrees, but she's not completely honest with him, so when they grow closer romantically, she worries this may cause problems. I enjoyed this! I was a little unsure in the beginning, but as the story went on, I really liked it!

Review for Decadent Dreams by Nicole Garcia - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Nico

My dreams haunt me. I feel as if I am falling into a pit of impending doom, but even that has not prepared me for the rollercoaster of emotions that flood over me when I'm near Phoenix. I have to keep my distance from her. I need to. It's the only thing I can do to keep from getting hurt again. Staying away from her proves to be a much harder task than I could have ever imagined. She's not only my assistant, but she's half my age. She gets under my skin and irritates the shit out of me, yet, one smile, one laugh, and I'm melting into a puddle at her feet. Falling in love with her is a bad idea, a very bad idea, because she just may be the one person who breaks my heart for good this time.

Phoenix

Nico is my boss. He's demanding, bitter, brooding, and a downright bully at times. But, all that doesn't deter me from him at all because I can see kindness and compassion in his eyes. I know the secret he's keeping from everyone and why he's so guarded with his heart. I don't care about his secret, nor do I care that he's twice my age. What matters is the undeniable attraction we feel for each other. If only he can just let go of the past and see what's right in front of him.


MY REVIEW -

This is a sexy, sweet story, and I really enjoyed it! Nicole Garcia did a great job of creating wonderfully interesting characters. Nico and Phoenix are great, and I enjoyed how their relationship progresses. I was a bit ticked that Phoenix didn't come clean with something right away, and she had a stupid reason for not coming clean about it, and even though a certain thing would've still happened even if she would've come clean, she didn't know that at the time! So, that's a really piss poor excuse! Sorry, that was all vague because I don't want to give anything away! Also, there's a scene at a club that just didn't fit with their characters; especially Nico, for me anyway, but despite those two things, I loved both Nico and Phoenix. Phoenix is Nico's assistant of sorts, so he's her boss, but Phoenix is a firecracker, so she doesn't quite listen to her boss.

There's an attraction between the two, but since he's her boss, and older than her, and he has also had some difficult relationship situations in the past, these two try to keep their hands off each other, but that proves more and more difficult as they know each other longer. The cover doesn't do this book justice by the way, the cover doesn't fit the story for me, so don't judge the book on the cover. The book is so much more than the cover portrays! This book is more than just another romance, and I'm so glad I came across this awesome story! Nico and Phoenix are so adorable together! They have some intensely hot sexy times! And they also have some really cute fun times together. Plus there are awesome side characters too! This book is well written, and the story is fully fleshed out. There's wonderful passion, suspense, and the characters have depth. This book is totally entertaining! There's a side story going on that was great to add some action to this story, I would've loved even more of that type of thing in this story! But, I'm totally happy with how this story went, and how the characters ended up! I listened to the audiobook version, and both narrators did an excellent job! I like how there was a male narrator to read the male parts, and a female narrator to read the female parts! Definitely recommend this book and the audio! Really looking forward to more by Nicole Garcia!

Review for Where the Night Ends by Melissa Toppen - 5 out of 5!



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

It only takes one night—one moment, one small snippet of time—to change everything. At sixteen-years-old, Sebastian Baxter taught me that. He taught me a lot of things.

He never had to work for my heart. In some unexplainable way I think it had always belonged to him anyway.

We spent years loving each other, hurting each other, trying to forget each other, but no matter how hard I tried, I could never erase the memory of him. His eyes, his smile, his touch—these are all things that are embedded in my brain, tattooed on my skin, and etched into my heart.

Some might think our love story is over, but deep down I know it’s only just beginning.

Because it’s not about where the night begins, it’s about where it ends…


MY REVIEW -

This is a really sweet story, but there's also lots of heartache. This story followed the relationship between Sebastian and Tessa from high school sweethearts to the end of college. These two love each other deeply, but through some poor decisions, they keep hurting each other. I loved their connection, they are adorable together, and I loved the passion they have for each other. There's lots of angst, which made me just want to knock their heads together, so they'd wake up! I felt bad for some of the people involved in all their angst, but I enjoyed this story. It's a tender story, and I found the story intriguing. I would've loved even more towards the ending of this book, but what was there was great, and I loved the emotions displayed by the characters. This is the first Melissa Toppen book I've read, and it definitely won't be the last, looking forward to checking out more of her work!

Review for Toxic Seduction by Roxy Sinclaire - 4 out of 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

As an MI-5 agent, Christine was the newest member of the London Anti-Terrorism Task Force. There was a terrorist attack with a lot of casualties by bomb blasts, which forced the United States to send one of their CIA Special Ops Agents, Jason, to track the bomber responsible.

One look at him was all it took Christine to want to partner up, even though Jason doesn’t let women come in the way of his job. But there’s something about Christine that does, in fact, divert his attention. The longer he works on the case with Christine, the harder it gets to resist their desires, on and off duty.

Tracking the bomber, they realize that it was just a smokescreen for one of the largest cover diamond heists in the past decade. They find that Warick, Jason’s contact in the diamond business, was behind the attack. It does look like Jason was giving the enemy information when they get caught in an ambush.

Will Christine’s instincts overcome her thoughts, or will her feelings for Jason cloud her judgment? Christine doesn’t have much to go on except faith in Jason, but will she risk her life to save his, along with thousands of innocent people?


MY REVIEW -

This is a fun story, and I liked the mystery of who the terrorist is, and the hunt to find the terrorist was entertaining. Christine is a smart cookie, who is an agent for MI5 in London, she is tasked with assisting American CIA agent, Jason, while he is in London searching for the terrorist. Christine is a good agent; except for the whole doesn't carry a gun thing and her stereotypes against Americans, but she great with finding clues and evidence. Poor Jason on the other hand is a horrible agent! Oh my goodness! I do not know how he hasn't already been killed! But, he is suave and good looking, so he has that going for him! Christine is immediately attracted to Jason, but she doesn't know if she can trust him or his instincts. The romance is cute, but the sex was tame; it's still good, but I just wanted a bit more; a bit more passion. I'm thinking it needed another sex scene or at least a heavy make out session, but it was nice, and the story is entertaining enough to make up for some of that. This book focuses a lot on the agents work, so there's some great action, and the suspense was great. Oh! And this story could've definitely used an epilogue. The ending definitely felt rushed to me. I listened to the audiobook version of Toxic Seduction, and the narrator did a wonderful job with her narration. She brought the story to life, and I'd recommend listening to the audiobook version over just reading it. All in all, a Fun read!

Review for Becoming a Legend by Sarah Robinson - 4 out 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Kane Kavanagh has always had one goal: being the best mixed martial arts fighter alive. With the MMA National Championships in Las Vegas fast approaching, the man they call “Killer” has no intention of letting anyone or anything get in his way. Somehow, though, a feisty opponent has slipped beneath his guard—and stolen his heart. Fiery and passionate, Nora Hannigan is harder to pin down than any rival Kane has faced in the ring. And she isn’t afraid to tell Kane that she wants nothing to do with him.

With her best friend about to marry into the Kavanagh family, Nora has been resisting Kane’s shameless attempts at flirting for months. But after their undeniable chemistry finally takes over, leading to the hottest night of Nora’s life, she’s running scared. There’s a lot about her life Kane doesn’t know, and she won’t be responsible for ending his career. Now Kane’s out to prove that he’s ready for commitment by winning her heart—and he’s never lost a fight.


MY REVIEW -

This is another good one in this series, I love the family dynamic between the Kavanaghs! They are too fun, and I love how supportive they are of each other. The romance is another sweet one, and I liked both Kane and Nora. The whole no strings relationship isn't my favorite premise, but I enjoyed the progression of Kade and Nora's relationship. I also loved the trip to Vegas for Kane's championship fight, and Nora's problems add some entertaining suspense to the story. Kane and Nora both have a lot they need to focus on in their lives, so they aren't looking for anything serious, so the two decide to have a no strings relationship, but of course, strings begin to attach to their relationship, which causes some angst for the characters. This story has dual POV's, and although, each story is a different couple, I think it's best to read the books in order. I really enjoy Sarah's writing, and I loved seeing the characters from the past books! I'm excited to see what the next Kavanagh brother is going to have to go through to find his happily ever after!

Review for Called by the Vampire: Part 4 - 3 out of 5



SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

As Maggie tends to her broken heart in Alexander’s absence she kindles a friendship with Adly. Sebastian takes measures to ensure her safety, but it’s not enough when an unfriendly vampire sets his sights on Maggie.
Lyndsey struggles to adapt to her new life, with Alexander by her side. While she makes her way through the process a startling discovery is made, and Lyndsey learns the truth about her father and how he affects her fate.



MY REVIEW -

It's an interesting story, and the premise is entertaining. I felt this part of the story didn't really have a whole lot happening in it, but I still want to see where these characters end up. I'm going back and forth on how I feel about the characters; Lyndsey gets on my nerves, but most of that may have been her transition into vampire that was bothering me, and I want Maggie to get some of her strength back, and stand up for herself better. I'd prefer more depth to the characters, and I'm thinking I'd prefer one lead, but it's not too bad; I just wish there wasn't the bit of cattiness in the situation. Lyndsey is going through her vampiric change, when some mysterious things pop up. Maggie is still playing the part of romance author, Kitty, and she is trying to figure out a way for Alexander and her to be reunited. If I were Maggie, I'd be pretty ticked at Alexander for not fighting for her more. There's some action and new enemies in this part of the story that add to the excitement of the story, and the characters get themselves into some precarious situation, so I am looking forward to reading the next part of this story. You should definitely read the previous parts before this book.

MY REVIEW -

This is a painful and wonderful read, and I loved it! I wanted to yell, punch, and hug these characters. The writing is terrific, and the intense emotion between the characters brings sighs to my heart. Delaney and Jayson's relationship is passionate, volatile, and the depth of feeling these two adrift souls feel for each other is beautifully written. Once I saw this was an amnesia story, I was on board because I love that premise, and Stylo Fantome has created characters that are flawed and unique, and you can't help but root for them to find their way. Muscle Memory has POV's from both Jayson and Delaney, and there's also scenes from the past that help the reader learn more about the events leading up to the amnesia incident. The past scenes wonderfully showed the development of a strong and deep love, and this made reading the events in the present more hurtful to read through. Delaney is much more of a saint than I would ever be, and I wanted her to stop being so much of a people pleaser, and just tell everyone that she's not okay, and that they keep expecting her to just go along with the situation and be okay with is just a big F U to her. I was just so ticked at them for not realizing how much she's hurting, or if they realized not even caring that she was hurting. Jon was really ticking me off with his treatment of Delaney, and don't even get me started on Kitty; just eww! Jon was such a moron when it comes to her! I hate how that turned out. Stylo Fantome did an excellent job of creating an uniquely entertaining story that felt full and the characters complex. This was the first Stylo Fantome book I've read, but it definitely won't be the last.

Review for The Bride of Glass by Candace Robinson - 5 out of 5!




SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -

Perrie Madeline is trapped in Vale's clutches as the Bride. Can Perrie find a way to escape her mental prison?

Maisie Jaser is on a rescue mission to retrieve her cousin and best friend, Perrie. Together, she hopes to bring down Vale and rid the world of the destruction he has caused.

Will Vale prevail?

The Bride of Glass is a mixture of humor, romance, violence, darkness, and hope.



MY REVIEW -

Totally loved this! I love the whole feel of this series! It's macabre and dark, but also hopeful and fun, and I enjoy the uniqueness of the story and the characters. This book felt a bit more adult than the first book due to some intimate scenes, and as with the first book, there are some disturbing visuals presented. I really enjoy Candace Robinson's characters, they all are rather quirky; some darkly quirky, which creates some interesting reading. You should read the first book before this one, so you can get the full experience of this book. This book has multiple POV's, which I enjoyed, but I still loved Perrie's and Vale's POV's more than any of the others, but it was great to get more insight to the other characters. Perrie is under a spell of sorts, and along with Vale, she is on a rampage! She's using her powers to capture souls to send back to the glass house, and Perrie and Vale have quite the volatile relationship. I love where Perrie and Vale's story line goes! I love the backstory with Vale, and enjoyed getting to see the different sides of Vale. Maisie, Perrie's cousin, also has a big part of this book, she's trying to find a way save Perrie with the help of Perrie's ex-boyfriend, Nev, so they can figure out how to stop the evil forces running amok. The relationships are all really sweet, and I loved the connections between the characters. Dark, crazy, unique, sweet and fun! Loved this read!
