Look Before You Jump by D.A. Bale

A big-mouth, partying Southerner with more guts than brains at times is not exactly my favorite type of character but Vicky Bohanan is a quirky character that has a flavor of her own. Her character comes off as having issues with her Dad and pretty much every member of the society she grew up in but when you get into the story you see that she really has a problem […]

Reckless Creed by Alex Kava

I really enjoyed the previous two books in this series, Ryder Creed. It made me very excited to get this book into my hands and see where things had gone with Ryder and his dogs. What I was not expecting was a thriller that brushes against a reality that is so terrifying. It is one of those situations that could be potentially happening now. I haven’t read a book that […]

A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn

It can never be denied that author Deanna Raybourn knows how to write a great mystery. I absolutely love reading a book that carries a mystery until the bitter end with plenty of twists and turns on the way. This newest book in the Veronica Speedwell Series delivered just that. In this installment I find that some of the criticisms I had for the first book have been resolved but some of […]

It’s You by K.P. Kelley

  When I read the synopsis of this book it peaked my interest. Hmmm, words like kissed, intense, and passion in a synopsis of a paranormal romance will intrigue me almost every time. Then let’s throw in a secret that could “rip or bind” the main characters?? Oh yes, I must know more. I will admit I am a fan of paranormal romance and this synopsis was my siren. Addicting, […]

The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman

Irene, Kai and Vale are back in this action-packed installment of The Invisible Library series, Honestly though, I think that all the stories are full of action 😉 and I love it. After reading two out of three books from this series I can say with sincerity that these books are best read in order. This story is heavily tied back to the plot from book number one with a […]

December 2016 Wrap-Up & January 2017 TBR

My goal for December 2016, and you can see that post HERE, was to read 4 books off my TBR shelf and I was successful in reading  3 out of 4 them but I have only reviewed 2 out of 3. One book I did a review on Goodreads. If you are interested here are the links to those reviews: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas       […]

The Dead Seekers by Barb & J.C. Hendee

Dark, intriguing and a real page turner! I enjoyed this story immensely and did not want to put this story down. Throughout this tale you are given just enough information to form a plausible assessment of the situation but are left with enough doubt that it draws you into the story because you just have to know what is going on! It was a fantastic spirit hunt from beginning to […]

Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

This book did not start on a high note for me. I have read and reviewed the first book in the series and I loved it, adored it and still do. When I started this book, I was all sorts of excited to see how the story was going to continue. It starts off shortly after the conclusion of book one and the opening scene is Griffin throwing the biggest […]

Hard Hitter by Sarina Bowen

What do I adore about this story? That a rugged, hard-edged fella was not an alpha male with caveman issues. Patrick O’Doul had some personal issues stemming from childhood and although they were not dealt with at the start of this story he still was a functioning human being. Yes! More please! It was lovely that it was Ariana Bettini who called the shots and that he was okay with […]

The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston

Informative, fascinating and filled with adventure! This story can appeal to a wide range of readers. The start of this novel is historical. We learn about the history of early explorers and archeologists alike who set out on explorations to discover parts of Central and South America, specifically with a focus on pre-Colombian civilizations. For those interested in stories that have political elements you will find this story most enjoyable. […]

Eerie by C.M. McCoy

  Captivating, dark and spectacular! This is an amazing story and once I started reading it I could not get enough! I just want to gush about this story but I do not want to spoil it for anyone. So, I will try to rein it in but I am bursting at the seams with excitement about this book. The beginning of the book started out like a typical young […]

Protecting You by Amanda Siegrist

Charming, touching and tragic! What a great story this is. I flew through this book in no time. All the characters were unique and developed. The pacing was good from scene to scene. I loved the romance aspect. There were some sexy times but they were not the focus in this story. There are some transitions from present to past and they are well done. They really help to incorporate […]

The Shattered Crown by J.W. Webb

This is the second book in the Legends of Ansu series but the story takes place one thousand years after then end of book one. This installment can be read as a standalone and I think that this is a great example of heroic fantasy! In case you are not familiar, a heroic fantasy is one in which the hero is reluctant to be a “champion” and is usually of […]

Hart of His by Annie Arcane

Real, bold and humorous! In order to really appreciate this story, you need to have read the first book Hart Broken. This novella is about one the main characters from that book, Cale. The story is told from Cale’s point of view with a few parts switching to Mickey’s and it is a very intense read. In this story, we get the nitty gritty about Cale’s insecurities and doubts. He […]
