True to You by Becky Wade

True to You is the first book in the Bradford Sisters Romance series. This series has a prequel called Then Came You where the background history of the Bradford’s beginnings is explained. It is not a necessary read in order to enjoy this story as the Author does a good job of explaining what you need to know in this book, but if you were interested in reading this series […]

Seduction of the Bear by Rachel Robins

Not that often do I read books that involve shape-shifters where they shift into bears. I was delighted to get my hands on this story for that very reason. Seduction of the Bear is a truly a romantic story and I am now enamored with these characters. Filled with passion, some sexy times, menace, and powerful shape-shifters this story was a fast paced and exciting read! The main character Austin […]


Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

While reading Red Sister, I could not help but realize that this story would appeal to fans of Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers and Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. There are similarities in this story to both of these books.  Do not misunderstand though, this novel is its own animal. If I had to narrow down what I felt the similarities were it would be that this story has members of […]


Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads

Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads

Saving Mercy is the third book that I have read from Author Abbie Roads and she has never failed to shock and awe me with her plots. I swear I almost read this book while having my fingers spread over my eyes at certain points! I know, I know…not possible, but if it was then I would have done it! There is no easing into this story. It just grabs […]

Cage of Deceit by Jennifer Anne Davis

I had signed up to do a blog tour with Good Choice Reading Promotions for Cage of Darkness which is the second book in the Reign of Secrets series. For a lucky few who committed to the blog tour the author was offering a limited number of signed books for the first in the series, which was Cage of Deceit. Heck Yeah! I was one of the lucky bloggers and […]


Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Daughter of the Pirate King was a book I knew I had to read. I love anything pirates and bonus, female pirate protagonist, yep a must read. My reason for being unsure was whether or not I was going to like this story due to the age of Alosa. I wasn’t sure how believable her character at seventeen was going to come across as a pirate captain. Turns out I had […]


Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson

Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson

This book is everything the synopsis promised and more. It was perfect for me! I love science fiction and the idea of technologically enhanced super humans just hits all my yes buttons. This book is exactly what I would find on the Syfy channel—well maybe waaay late night Syfy channel. It has quite the sexy times throughout the story. So not really “prime time” material but entirely enjoyable to read. […]

Rain by India R Adams

I have read several books by India Adams. My first book was actually a novella called Blue Waters from the Tainted Waters series. That book was just amazingly written and it just tore my heart out in all the best ways! I loved it so much that I had added it to my favorites shelf at Goodreads. India and I were chatting on Twitter and she gifted me any book […]

Nobody’s Hero by Bec McMaster

I received this book from Bec McMaster because I subscribe to her newsletter. What a phenomenal present for me because I am a huge fan of her work and I am grateful. I was introduced to her work with the book Kiss of Steel from the London Steampunk series. From the book forward I will absolutely read anything Bec McMaster. There are still several books that I haven’t read so […]


The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

What was it that drew me to this story? A story revolving around necromancy is not something you run into that often and hello on that gorgeous cover! Upon reading it I find that there is a significant Asian (think geisha) influence throughout the writing and the story itself is about love, loss and revenge. This story is told from two points of view and it transitions from past to […]


Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan

The idea of a psychic and paranormal private investigator is what drew me to this story. It was the witty dialogue however that truly held my attention from the start. Snark and sarcasm will keep me entertained every time! I really enjoyed the banter between the main characters. Harper’s character was sassy, witty, and determined while Riddick’s character was brooding, tortured, and self-deprecating. The juxtaposition between these characters was just […]


Gilded Cage by Vic James

Gilded Cage by Vic James

Brilliant, dark and intense! Creative world building filled with fantastical imagery and deplorable cruelty. Brings to the front issues of class inequality set in a world with no boundaries. Definitely agree with the consensus that if you are a fan of Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series then you will enjoy this novel. The setting of this story is a modern day alternative Britain where there are even alternate world histories, […]


Beautiful Delusions by Ember Raine Winters

Beautiful Delusions by Ember Raine Winters

I cannot say that before reading this book I really understood Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since this story revolves around this disorder/illness I did do some research into it. In order to really judge the realism that the author is trying to convey I needed to be familiar with the subject matter otherwise I would not be able to fairly review this book. If you want a quick info bite […]


Where the Lost Girls Go by R.J. Noonan

Where the Lost Girls Go by R.J. Noonan

Laura Mori’s character is a newbie about to get a crack at her first case. She is written as competent, intelligent and a slightly naïve woman who wants to make a difference in her life and the lives of others. I enjoyed that her character is of the Japanese ethnicity. She is no wilting waif and I love protagonist diversity. Throughout the story you will also see her struggle with […]

The Amaranthine Chronicles by Tiffany Shand

I reviewed a box set of three stories by Author Tiffany Shand. Below I have written a mini-review for each story in the series and given an individual rating per book. Overall I found that there were several aspects to this series that I enjoyed and some that I was meh about. What would have really hit the mark for me was being able to develop an emotional connection to […]

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

An amazing young adult debut that had me on the edge of my seat! I wanted to read this story because the main character is a bounty hunter from a hell called the lowlands. That alone sounded so intriguing and I was thrilled when I got my hands on this book! From the start, I was into X’s character. He just came on the scene appearing so strong and confident […]


Look Before You Jump by D.A. Bale

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 […]


The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

For fans of Russian folklore and Brothers Grimm fairytales this will be a story to delight the senses! Take a journey to medieval Russia and fall in love with a heroine who throws off the chains that her gender imposes upon her and cuts her own path in a world filled with magic, darkness, and conflicting religious beliefs. This is a magical fairy tale for all ages. This story starts […]

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, […]
