Loving Jake (Almost Perfect Series Book 1) by Lisa Lanay – Review by Angela Hayes

Loving JakeLoving Jake by Lisa Lanay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Loving Jake is the first book in the Almost Perfect series, and emotive debut novel by Lisa Lanay. This is a contemporary romance- with drama, angst, secrets, second chances, and more. Ms. Lanay employed a tried and tested ‘recipe’ for her debut, giving it her own ‘spin’- and delivers a polished and enjoyable read. Was the story a little predictable?-Yes. But the story was written in such a way that I couldn’t help but invest in the characters, and their story- and in the end the predictability didn’t really matter. I enjoyed the journey.
I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series!
Well done!

Thank you, Ms. Lanay!

Knight Watch (An Alliance Agency Novel Book 1) by Maddie Wade & India Kells – Review by Michelle King

Knight Watch (An Alliance Agency Novel #1)Knight Watch by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kingsley Knight has moved from the UK to the US to become an agent in the newly formed Alliance Agency. He is assigned as the lead investigator on their first case, to rescue Sydney Rutherford, the missing niece of a powerful businessman. When Kingsley and Sydney meet, you can definitely feel the sparks fly between the two. But as they find out that things aren’t quite what they seem to be, will they survive the dangers and be able to figure out what is going on between them? Can Kingsley keep Sydney safe when his personal feelings get involved?

This is an intense, action packed, suspenseful story that you won’t want to put down! These two authors together are quickly becoming favorites of mine. I easily connected with these characters and quickly became emotionally involved with all of them. I am looking forward to what comes next in this exceptional series!

Knight Watch (An Alliance Agency Novel #1)Knight Watch by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Knight Watch was a great 5 star read and book one in the An Alliance Agency series.
Once I started I couldn’t put it down. This is Kingsley and Sydney’s story.

Kingsley is now in America working with the Alliance Agency. When he gets his first kidnapping case, he has to find Sydney Rutherford.

Sydney suffers from PTSD from a rape by someone close to her. When she is kidnapped, things from her past start to resurface. When she meets Kinglsey there is something about him that makes her feel like she can trust him. The chemistry these two have is off the charts.
Will he be able to keep her safe?

There is so much more to this great read, I don’t want to give away anything.
There are twists and turns that will throw you off. All of the secondary characters were great.
We get suspense, danger and so much more. My emotions were all over the place and I will warn there is a scene that may cause triggers for some. If you’re looking for a great read, 1-click and get started today.

Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 2) by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Madison Degraffenreid

Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours, #2)Love & Omens by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 2) by Carrie Pulkinen

5-Stars

Love & Omens (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 2) by Carrie Pulkinen was a romantic and fun read. Sydney and Blake once dated in the past and meet again when the Crescent City Ghost Tours decides to take on a partner. They want to add a haunted museum with artifacts from murders. An ominous vision distracts Syd from the conversation with her boss regarding adding Blake and she is shocked upon seeing him. Things happen and the two must work together to figure out how her vision is tied into someone’s death. Can they figure it out before death stakes it’s claim?
The characters in this novel were amazing. Sydney was a strong heroine with a spunky attitude. She stood her ground in tough situations and went for what she desired. Blake was also an excellent main male character. He was hunky, down to earth, and fun. These two also had amazing gifts. I loved seeing them come together and work with the team.
The storyline also had great flow and was easy to follow. I was hooked immediately from the beginning. This book is the second in this series but could easily be read as a standalone. Significant events that played a part for this book were mentioned in the storyline to keep readers from becoming confused. Having read the first novel and this one as well I do recommend reading them both. This book was amazing and such a fun read. I highly recommend it.

Knight Watch (An Alliance Agency Novel #1)Knight Watch by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Knight Watch by Maddie Wade and India Kells is the first book in the new series An Alliance Agency Novel. The story does not disappoint. It is full of action, suspense, with some romance thrown in. I always am leary when two authors join up for a book because at times it can get disjointed and you can see where one picks up and the other ends. These two authors work well together and the story is seamless. I have enjoyed other books by both of them in the past and was excited to see them working together again. The characters are well written and have some depth to them which allows the story to develop. I enjoyed learning about Kingsley Knight and Sydney Rutherford. They made a good pair in various ways. I look forward to more in this series and from each of these authors individually.

Knight Watch
An Alliance Agency Novel
Book 1
By Maddie Wade
& India Kells
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Outstanding full length novel. Suspenseful romance that will keep you reading. Not for those under 18. Due to violence and adult content.

Sydney Rutherford is in over her head. She is on the run from her Uncle. Her parents are both dead. Her only family, is the very one that is trying to kill her. With nobody to help her, she must be smarter than her Uncle. Having no one to help her, she runs into her Knight. Kingsley Knight from the Alliance Agency. Is he the one to rescue her? Can they get the information needed to save them both?

Maddie Wade and India Kells has written a high action novel. The first couple of chapters will start the uphill roller coaster. Then hang on because the action will not stop until you read, THE END! I fell in love with Sydney and Kingsley. Sydney is a strong woman, that does not wait to be rescued. She does what needs to be done. You can bet I will be waiting for the next installment. Thanks for the adventure Ladies!!!

Pigs by Daniel James – Review by Jenni Bishop

PigsPigs by Daniel James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Pigs by Daniel James is a thriller and then some. It is a gripping tale and a game of cat and mouse, one where anything goes when a cold blooded killer wants vengeance. Where revenge is all you can see, one where your worst nightmare is lurking just around the corner. Pigs is a story of danger and violence, murder and mayhem. A story where maniacal men will stop at nothing to dole out some pretty gruesome justice. Daniel has woven a tale that is engrossing and engaging and one that you can’t put down. It is also a story where the characters go through the whole gamut of emotions. The love and hope, loss and guilt, grief and madness spans over 10 years that come together for one explosive outcome.

I won’t be revealing anything because it is a story that needs to be explored on it’s own.
I am waiting to see what comes next from.

Knight Watch (An Alliance Agency Novel Book 1) by Maddie Wade & India Kells
5 stars

This is book 1 of this series, but i would recommend reading the prequel, Deadly Alliance, to get familiar with some of the characters in this book but it’s not required to follow this story.
We follow Kingsley Knight or as he prefers, just Knight, and Sydney.
We are taken for quite the ride through all the twists and turns in this amazing story. As with both of these authors, I knew I’d not be getting anything done until I hit the end and sorry kids but cereal for dinner counts as a meal.
I felt for Sydney and the trauma she carried through life and all she went through in the years to come.

I cannot wait for more in this series as I know they’ll be amazing.

Addie: To Wager on Her Future (Other Pens, Mansfield Park book 5) by Leenie Brown – Review by Jenni Bishop

Addie: To Wager on Her Future (Other Pens, Mansfield Park #5)Addie: To Wager on Her Future by Leenie Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Addie: To Wager on Her Future (Other Pens, Mansfield Park Book 5) by Leenie Brown is a delightful period romance and a quick read. I have not read anything by this author before and I am not really a fan of period pieces unless they are done well. But this sweet story was well written and held my attention from start to finish. The characters are likable and fun to read.

Addie has been dealing with running the house and looking after the horses whilst her brother is away at school and her father is sick. She soon discovers that her brother has gotten himself in some trouble and when faced with the evil Mr Camden Robert a recent friend, steps up and suggests a solution and finds himself unwittingly drawn into the problem. Addie finds herself falling for the ever studious Robert and entangles him into an idea of her own.

I recommend this story for those who like a quick read with a HEA.

Chasing Clay (The DeWitt Agency Files, #3)Chasing Clay by Lance Charnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Chasing Clay (The DeWitt Agency Files Book 3) by Lance Charnes was an intriguing and mysterious read. I would rate this book a four out of five stars. I loved how deep in the details the author went to bring the characters and the story alive. I enjoyed getting Matt’s point of view and seeing how his mind works. The pace felt slow, but understanding the limited frame really did add pressure for things to happen. I was glad that I kept reading because by the end I was hooked.
