Sky to Sea was an incredible, heartfelt novel! There was so much involved in the novel (I won’t go into details because spoilers) that ring so true with society today. From forbidden love, to different nationalities, and mental illness, this novel touches on so many topics that are relevant today in real life. I didn’t read the first novel, but this one grabbed me from the beginning and didn’t let go. I couldn’t stop reading it! I can’t wait to read the first one and the last one! I highly recommend this novel, it is also fitting for any each, young adult to adult.

Broken by Love (The Full Circle Series) by MJ Masucci is a highly emotionally charged romance story where you are so mad and frustrated and you just want to smack some sense into the characters. Never doubt the power of a woman’s intuition but I found it hard that a woman would put up with what she did as well. It has all the makings to make a good story, but it fell short with me as I just could not connect with the characters because I was so disappointed with all of their behaviour.
I am sure there are many of you that will really enjoy this story so give it a go.

The Wicked Wolves Of Windsor by Byrd Nash is a collecting of short stories ranging from twisted classical tales to new modern fairytales. There are sorceresses, fae, kings, queens, and lots of talking animals. If you love folktales, you’ll love these stories. There is definitely a Grimms lens on a few of them though, so I would not suggest reading these as bed time stories.
Landing the Lawman is the fifth book in Kadie Scott’s Hills of Texas series. You can read it as a standalone but my personal preference when it comes to series is to read them in order as you will get so much more pleasure out of the reading by knowing the little bits and pieces of the background and repeat characters and …
Landing the Lawman gives the only Hill daughter – Carter Hill, the water rights consultants, and her biggest client Logan Cortez, a lawyer who has dedicated his life to helping small farms to protect their water supply! Carter has had to make some hard decisions in her life – needing to choose between the man she loves or following her dreams … she knows that following her dreams she would make a difference and being the only girl in the family of boys … anyone can imagine the pressure she has been putting on herself!
The writer gives us two people who teach each other about what is important in life while throwing them into some heated moments … you will be cheering with Carter when she is trying to show Logan that they are the two halves of a whole and you will be crossing your toes and fingers for one satisfying ending!
Sky to Sea: Crimson Sash- Book 2 by Amanda Marin
It is one of my favourite things discovering a new author. This is the second book in the series but my own habit first book I have read by this author and this series. I didn’t find it hard to follow the story and was totally engrossed in the book. I find the author’s created world very interesting and unique. I like the romance undertone to the book and the bits of drama that unfold through the whole book.
Neve and Micah’s forbidden love is just such a heart gripping part of the story. The drama that they went through to get where they are and the drama that follows on. I really found that the world the author created could in someways mirror reality now a days. I found myself really drawn to Micah’s character and the traumas he endured all because he dared to love. I just could not put this
book down and I will definitely read more from this author and this series in the future.
Rowan Shaw keeps writing these brilliant books, and each one continues to get better. For a better understanding and connection with the characters I highly suggest you read them all in order, the last thing you want is to be lacking anything. As each read that Rowan Shaw creates she takes you on an emotional journey that flows effortlessly from chapter to chapter, she has an amazing way with words that connects you to not only the story but the characters. These characters are easy to connect to, relatable and real, just following their journey it makes you not want to put this read down! This is a brilliant read that shouldn’t be missed, I can’t wait to see where else we are taken with this author, and what other reads she brings us.
Sky to Sea: Crimson Sash- Book 2
by Amanda Marin
I really loved this, I think I even liked it more than the first one which is saying a lot because I loved the first. Micah and Neve are such strong and wonderful characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. In this book there are some mental issues dealt with that was written so well. There are other great supporting characters as well in this dystopian fantasy book. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this story except to say that this series is a must read and I cannot wait to read the next book!!! This author did an exceptional job writing an amazing story, I highly recommend this book.
Brutal & Raw: Mafia Romance & Psychological Thriller (Beneventi Family Book 1) by Sonya Jesus
Brutal and Raw by Sonya Jesus is the first Book in her new series Beneventi Family. This is a thrilling read that will have you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what happens next. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading. I do want to say as a warning that there might be some parts that could be a trigger. Lyla is on the run from the mafia but she is actually one that has control to bring his organization down. Find out what happens next in this series. I can’ wait to read more from this Author.
Covert Threat is the fifth book in the Gray Ghost series. It mentions characters from previous books, but you can follow the story line without having to read them.
I think this is probably one of my favorites in this series. I loved the suspense build up. I enjoyed the equality of the mystery and romance. The romance part didn’t overtake the main story like in so many novels. Jules’ character was well written and I enjoyed following her story throughout the book.
I can’t write too much more without giving away the mystery. But, this book made a great rainy day read!
