🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: With This Christmas Ring by Manda Collins 🎄

With this Christmas Ring is a delightful story with a second chance romance. I do enjoy historical romances and this one was a good one. Merry Parks was a woman who was on “the shelf” so to speak and had accepted her place by her father’s side as his assistant. She once had a lifetime of promises, but she left that all behind one night as she fled her betrothed […]

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: A Season of You by Emma Douglas 🎄

Although this story is a Christmas romance it is not a light and fun read. A Season of You covers some pretty tough subjects and most of the story has to do with moving on after the death of a loved one. This story is not a ‘Christmastime story’ with a focus on Christmas but rather a story that takes place during holiday season and there are Christmastime festivities that […]

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: Hope at Christmas by Nancy Naigle 🎄

In at Hope at Christmas, the story of Sydney’s character was written realistically and I appreciated that. It is hard for anyone to recover after revelations that lead to divorce and I think that there are many people who can relate to her feelings and the defenses she had in place. Mac’s character also had his share of loss but from a different viewpoint. I liked that his character had […]

Review: Ultimate Sacrifice by S.E. Green with Giveaway

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: What a mind bender Ultimate Sacrifice was to read! Vickie had a normal life in a small-town community and she was very content with that existence. All was good, until the moment her twin brother emerged from the woods on their property covered in blood. He had just discovered a murdered little girl who was left in […]

Review: The Razvak Hunter by Arel B. Hunter

The Razvak Hunter in the simplest terms is about dark creatures versus light creatures and the battle between the two. This story was set in Vallenthar with the continent being split into Myrasia and Easia. The dark ones lived in Easia and the light ones lived in Myrasia. In this world, there had to be a division between the two because the dark beings and light beings were not able […]

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: Deserving You by Amanda Siegrist

In Deserving You, Deja Wilson was not born into the best of families and her only bright spot was her brother Dare, until the day came when he was no longer around. On her own and alone Deja made many choices that she was not proud of but she was desperate. Although, one her not so wonderful choices introduced her to the McCord family and her best friend Sophie, so […]

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: Freeing the Beast by Tina Donahue

Review: Freeing the Beast by Tina Donahue

Freeing the Beast would be a perfect story for those who are looking for a paranormal romance with lots of raw passion and with a bit of Alpha male posturing. Nothing is held back between these two characters once the beast is released. I found the idea of a business that takes paranormal creatures and gives them makeovers in order for them to be more appealing to the mortals they want […]

Review: The Heart of the Alchemist by Penny Wells

For the last three years Katie had wallowed in her misery after her break-up with the man she thought she would spend forever with. Although she knew that she was in a downward spiral she just couldn’t seem to care enough to do anything about it. I think she had untreated depression, honestly. When her ex suddenly showed up at her place of business, it was the catalyst that she […]

Review: Breakaway by Sophia Henry with Giveaway

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: I don’t know why but I usually end up reading sports romances that revolve around hockey, which is ok with me because…hello….hockey players people. In Breakaway, Luke Daniels has had his world shattered in a moment. Everything he ever wanted was just..poof…gone. His childhood had given him the skills to rise against the odds and he was […]

Review: Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

In Beasts Made of Night there is a sect of society called the aki. The aki are young people that at some point manifested the ability to eat sin. They are not able to call forth the sin, that is the job of the mages. The aki are not revered for their position, in fact they are little higher than slaves at the whim of the Mages who control them. […]

Review: Forged Alliances by Katherine McIntyre

Forged Alliances is the first book in the Tribal Spirits series and I can tell you that this is one series that I will absolutely continue! I am a big fan of paranormal romances because as you know anything goes, what caught my interest in Forged Alliances was that this was a PNR between a mountain lion shifter and wolf shifter! Had to know how that was going to work, lol, […]

Review: The Secrets of Islayne by Kari Lynn West

I was excited to read The Secrets of Isalyne because it sounded exciting and it was some serious cover love! I absolutely loved the whole idea of the lumination trade. I loved it! It was so original!! Luminators had a special ability. They were able to take faded memories and restore them. Brighten them in the mind so that the person receiving the service could have faded memories restored to […]

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: The Gifts of our Mothers by Hazel Black

They had been together since the beginning and nothing could tear them apart, until one of them behaved rather badly and broke her sister’s heart. Now the damage could not be repaired and the instigator of the calamity was cast out. So, began the curse that would […]

Review: Grigori by Lauren Smith

At the start of Grigori, Madelyn Haynes is in Russia trying to salvage her career and reputation. She was that person who was convinced that at some point in history dragons had to have been real and went a little above and beyond in trying to convince others. Now Madelyn had three months to either find the proof that she needs or she would have to drop her research entirely […]

Review: Hart of Mine by Annie Arcane

I adore the Cale and Mickey series and it was a shame that I had not had a chance to read this concluding novella before now. A real crime, people! Hart of Mine is the fourth novella in the Cale and Mickey series and as I understand it, is the final story in this series (but please say it isn’t so!). I have truly enjoyed getting to know these characters and […]

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 […]

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Thrax is the fourth book in the Angelbound Origins series and I will say that it can be read as a stand-alone. The Author did an amazing job carrying through all the details that I needed to know in order to enjoy this book. I liked the world that was created for this series and was thrilled […]
