Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman: Warbringer gave life to the character of Princess Diana! Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is but this story made her come alive for me. I found it just magnificent the amount of thought that was put into describing the Amazons and how they came to be. The world building was very detailed and I could clearly imagine the island of Themyscira and the warrior women who inhabited it. […]

Review: Semi-Sane by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Sane is the fifth and final book in the Harper Hall Investigations series which has been an AMAZING series! I have completely adored each and every book in this series and Semi-Sane was no exception. In this installment, the focus is on Dr. Violet Marchand and bad boy Nikolai Aleyev. The story between these two characters was introduced in the previous book, Semi-Broken, and I would recommend that you read […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Twisted by Isabel Jordan

Yay that another installment in this series has entertained and endeared me to this series! The third in any series is usually a nice indicator of how a series is going to progress, and I was thrilled not to be bored or let down! With love, humor, romance, sexy times, and pregnancy hormones…how can this story go wrong? It did not! Back is my favorite cast of characters but the focus […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Human by Isabel Jordan

Ok, it needs to be said: I LOVE THIS BOOK! I laughed out loud so many times throughout this story! The main character Harper is just amazing to me. She is witty, sexy, and really feisty. She takes no crap from anyone and has no fear! I just love this character. A year has passed, Noah and Harper have become affianced and are heading to Las Vegas to elope. Anything […]

Review: Die Before You Wake by D.A. Bale

Die Before You Wake is the fourth book in The Bartender Babe Chronicles and I really enjoyed the changes that have taken place for this cast of characters. This series follows Vicki Bohanan through a series of misadventures where she manages to get herself in some crazy and life-threatening situations. Definitely no shortage of humor and snark in this series and I love it! With the help of her best […]

Excerpt & Review: Romancing the Scot by May McGoldrick

Romancing the Scot is the first book in The Pennington Family series and I feel this promises to be a wonderful series. This series is set in the early eighteen-hundreds in Baronsford Scotland but the Pennington family is actually English. At the start of this story we meet Grace Ware who was the daughter of a military commander who fought with the French against the English. Grace and her father […]

Review: Heart of the Fae by Emma Hamm

This story, Heart of the Fae, has my heart completely and utterly. This was such a delightful story! If you love any rendition of the Beauty and the Beast story then this is a story you will absolutely love. Especially if you are fans of A Court of Thorns and Roses, because the main character of this story reminds me of a broody Tamlin. Except in this story Eamonn has […]

Review: Flamingo Road by Sasscer Hill

I bought Flamingo Road a few months past because it looked like an interesting book. I was intrigued that it revolved around crime, horses, and the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau. The TRPB is a real agency, which I knew absolutely nothing about before I read this book. If you want to check it out here is a LINK to the home page of the organization. Pretty cool, right? Fia McKee […]

Mini-Review: The Late Show by Michael Connelly

I was excited to read The Late Show because I am a fan of the Harry Bosch series and was looking forward to reading a story with a female lead detective from Author Michael Connelly. I will say that the lead detective in this story reminded me a lot of Detective Antoinette Conway from the Dublin Murder Squad series by Author Tana French. So, if you are a fan of that series then this book […]

Review: Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano

Behind the Scenes is a series starter for the Apart from the Crowd series. I was first turned onto Author Jen Turano’s work with the A Class of Their Own series and when I learned that she had a new series starting, I was very excited to start reading. Took me a bit of time to start reading Behind the Scenes but it is just adorable and I found it […]

Review & Giveaway: Chosen by R.S. Broadhead

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: I will freely admit to being a pussycat when it comes to anything horror but I still can’t help wanting to read it. I gave Chosen a five-star rating because for me it gave me all sorts of feels. Feelings like horrified, grossed out, stricken just to name a few, and the ending was as a horror […]

Review: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones

My anticipation for The Trouble with Twelfth Grave was filled with excitement and a twinge of reluctance. I was expecting that once again Charley or Reyes would be holding back a big secret that, if only they had been honest with each other, would not have led to landing in hot water. Phewww, this story was really, really good! Love Charley, she is better than ever! As always, I love […]

Review: City of Lies by Victoria Thompson

City of Lies was the type of book that only got better as it went on. At the start, I was introduced to Elizabeth Mile’s character and grifter ways, which I found most interesting. When things went bad with a deal, she wound up taking part in a suffragist march in order to try and throw some thugs off of her trail. Only that did not go as she had […]

Review: Workman’s Complication by Rich Leder

I was interested in reading Workman’s Complication because I like reading stories about private investigators and a story where a private investigation business is inherited, well it peaked my interest that’s for sure. I enjoyed this story from the very beginning and it was hilarious. It had great one-liners and the main character Kate McCall had a lot of Moxie and I love that in a character. It was a […]

Review: The Dragon Medallion by Alexa Whitewolf

An ancient prophecy about a boy and a girl that would come together and save the world from evil, sounds cool, right? Well, it really was. The Dragon Medallion combines many fun elements, such as dragons, ghosts, an ancient prophecy, an Egyptian god and goddess, and battles with long since departed Vikings. From the start of this book I was drawn in to the plot. I had so many questions […]

Review: Interpretation by Dylan Callens

What a mind trip! Interpretation is one of those stories that just makes you think and maybe double check that what you think is real still feels the same. I just cannot imagine the scenario that is put forth in this story, it is oddly fascinating but at the same time horrific to consider. Carl Winston is an everyday person who starts to experience oddities that impact him physically. He […]

Review: Old Scores by Will Thomas

I really enjoyed that this book was titled Old Scores as it was indeed a book about settling old scores. Cyrus Barker was an enigma of a man and in this installment readers will learn more about Cyrus’s history and how his past and present collide in a drastic way. In addition, there is also a nice mystery, character growth, a little bit of romance, and a surprise ending to keep […]

Review: Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott

Gray Wolf Island is a beautifully written story about a mysterious treasure that everyone has looked for but it has yet to be found. No one was more entranced with the idea of finding the treasure of Gray Wolf Island than a teenager named Sadie. She has spent her entire youth dreaming about finding the treasure with her sister, but it was not meant to be for Sadie. Sadie and her […]

In this world created by Author Juliet Lyon, vampires are the hottest new dating craze, so much so that they have created a dating service called v-date to allow the living to have some one-on-one time with the undead. Drop Dead Gorgeous starts out with Mila going on a date with her first vampire. Mila had been through the ringer with relationships and figured that she would try something new […]


Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]
