Wild Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel by India Kells – Review by Maura Harper

Wild BastardWild Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The Dark Sparrow Series” is a spin off of “The Women of Purgatory Series” and while I believe each book can be read on its own, there are threads that tie it all together. The characters all live in the same “world”. WILD BASTARD is book # 6 in both series and # 3 in the Dark Sparrow series. I think it is important/helpful to read each in order because there are so many cross over characters.

WILD BASTARD is a fast paced story and while I was going to read for a little bit on this gorgeous spring Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, I found myself not able to put the book down until I was finished.

I love reading strong female characters who work to lift other women up instead of putting then down. This action packed story certainly has its share of fabulous females.

From beginning to the end, this story is well plotted and has a very clear path as the story winds itself through the twists and turns. I am so glad the series is continuing because I’m not ready to say goodbye yet.

Trickster’s Hunt (Three Tricksters Book 1) by Carrie Whitethorne
Trickster’s Hunt (Three Tricksters Book 1) by Carrie Whitethorne is the first book in the Three Tricksters series and a book I honestly didn’t know what to expect going into it. This is my first read by this author . I found myself drawn in from the beginning and I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading it. Maia is a fun character, she’s in London for a Contest. When three guys just randomly start appearing around her. What will happen when she realizes things aren’t as they seem with these three guys? Find out what happens next in this book I highly recommend reading. I can’t wait to read the next Book in this series.

Edge Of The Storm (Silent Secrets Book 2) by Lisette Kristensen – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Edge of the Storm: Book 2 (Silent Secrets)Edge of the Storm: Book 2 by Lisette Kristensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Edge of The Storm ( Silent Secrets Series #2 ) by Lisette Kristensen was a quick, action packed read.
I haven’t read this author before so I’m not sure what genre they normally write.

This book might be a rough read for some who have issues with terrorism but if you can see past that, your going to love the book. Halo is a spy in Rome and is taken by a group of terrorists planning to destroy the Vatican and she is taken right in front of the others. Will Blackbird be able to come through and save her mentor?

The book was short since it was a Novella but was very fast paced and full of action. The way the book ended, this is not over!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fictional-ish: A Friends to Lovers Romance by Natalina Reis is a sweet story. Livie and Kyle have been the best of friends since primary school but Kyle’s marriage has created a problem. Livie has had an enemy in Mia since they were young and now Kyle has married her. Livie is offered the chance to not only move but also open a new bookstore and jumps at the opportunity. Will Kyle figure out Livie loves him and as more than a friend?
This is a sweet romantic story. The characters are relatable and I like the story is told from both point of views. I also enjoyed the Scottish setting. This was a fun story to read and I’m glad I picked it up.

Trickster's Hunt (Three Tricksters #1)Trickster’s Hunt by Carrie Whitethorne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Trickster Hunt is the first book the Three Tricksters series by Carrie Whitethorne. This Paranormal romance was a good read that follows Mia, a competitive eater who is in London for finals. After some irrational things happen three mysterious guys show up. No matter where she is these guys tend to be there as well and Mia cannot figure out why she is so drawn to them, and so are Amos, Rhett, and Silas.
I really enjoyed reading this book, at first I had worried as I felt it went a little slow but by chapter three I was wanting to read more and more about Mia and find out about the men that were being drawn to her. I am excited to read the other books in this series and give the book 4 stars!!!

Say Something by Jennifer L. Allen – Review by Heidi Eich Woodring

Say SomethingSay Something by Jennifer L. Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Say Something by Jennifer L. Allen is a remarkably written romance that I loved reading. This book had my emotions all over the place. I was happy one minute and wanting to cry the next. Jessica is broken, having to return home to small town four years after her divorce. Being back in the town that throws her into her and Danny’s past is almost too much. The good and bad memories, the need to still want and need him and that even now she still loves him. She doesn’t know if he will ever forgive her or is she can even forgive herself!
This BOOK, I have tried for a few days go put into words how good it was. I could NOT put it down and read it in one sitting. I really do wish that the book itself was longer as I loved Jessica and Danny. I highly recommend this book and wish I could give it MORE than FIVE stars! This is my first book by this author and it WILL NOT be my last.

5 out of 5 stars
Say Something written by Jennifer L. Allen is the first book that I have read by this author and it was amazing even though it was very emotional that I had to put the book down. Wow I didn’t realize what infertile woman go through how strong they are and how you have to lean on your loved ones when you are going through something like this or you will lose yourself.
The characters are well written and the secondary characters are amazing I really hope I get to read a story about Mickey soon.
Danny and Jess where childhood sweethearts they got married, moved away from town had issues with fertility then they got divorced even though they still loved each other. Now they’re both back home will they get a second chance? Can they forgive each other? Will they be able to work through there infertility a second time around?
I highly recommend this amazing emotional read…

Beachcomber EnemyBeachcomber Enemy by Stephanie Queen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Enemy is book ten of the Beachcomber Investigations series by Stephanie Queen. These books should be read in order so you can see how the relationship develops between the characters. This book is faced paced similar to the other books in the series. The tension and drama keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I enjoy following these characters and the different cases they end up investigating. I love how the characters have developed through the series. There is always mystery and you can’t wait to find out what happens next. Definitely worth a read!!

Beachcomber Investigations Series
Book 10
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This book is a perfect additions to the Beachcomber investigations series. This book has a little of everything you could want in a story, action, suspense and romance.

Dane and Shana are a fantastic couple. I love how fiercely protective Dane is of her, and it shows how much he loves her. When there is an attempt on their lives they work together to see if they can find the culprit. It seems Dane may not actually be the one in danger, it could be Shana? There are romantic scenes, heart skipping action scenes, one in which lands one character hurt and a friend they must rescue. I will say no more, read on to find out what happens and to whom.

I highly recommend this book, but more importantly the complete series. You can read this as a standalone but I would recommend starting from book 1, you will not regret it.
