Blindsided by T. Christensen – Review by Shea Gilkerson

Blindsided: A Contemporary Sports RomanceBlindsided: A Contemporary Sports Romance by T. Christensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book a lot. In many ways, it reflects situations, emotions, experiences we all have as teenagers. There’s always the person we grew up with that changes in high school, there are always mean girls (and guys), there is always miscommunication and strong emotion with all the teenagers and their hormones and getting into adult situations…Kirsa and Brock were really fun to read about in the beginning, before it all happened. I felt warm and fuzzy reading about them and how much they cared about each other. It’s really wild how much things can change as we get older and start meeting new people. There’s a lot of emotions in this book, and they’re presented so well. I recommend this read.

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction (Book 2) by C.L. Schneider – Review by Cathy Greene

Chain Reaction (Nite Fire #2)Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Chain Reaction is the second book of the Nite Fire series and it’s another great book full of adventure, fantasy and action and a little hint of romance too.
We learn more about Dahlia and get to see more of her kicking butt to protect those she cares for. I love how she never gives up no matter the challenge. I enjoyed watching the team work with Alex and Casey had me snickering with teasing comments. It’s a well written book and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. This series already has me hooked and I have already added it to my top favorite list!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful children’s book. The overall story is such a great lesson. Then you add a cute “kitty” (my little one kept calling her.) It just makes for a great bedtime story. The illustrations were adorable and just added so well to story. Wonderful story time read!

The Unholy by Paul DeBlassie III – Review by Ashley Westerman

The UnholyThe Unholy by Paul DeBlassie III
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This author is quickly becoming one of my favorites that I need to read everything he has written. Every book so far has fully engrossed me and this one is no exception. From the first page I was caught, and couldn’t put it down, wondering what was going to happen. I really enjoy his descriptive words that allow me to easily “see” the world around me. This book is definitely worth a read!

I love this book!!!! The characters are so hard not to because attached to and throughout the whole book I missed Shane as much as Lee did… but I’m glad she met Finn I can’t wait to read the next book in this series and I wish I knew more about each crew member!!! Like their back stories and what made them who they are now!!! The ending wasn’t what I expected but sometimes that is how it is.

King Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel Book 6) by India Kells – Review by Corine Lombardi

King Bastard (Dark Sparrow, #6)King Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a final book in The Dark Sparrow Series.
It was good, I definitely need to read the other books because the characters are developed and rich but I didn’t completely understand the back story and previous plots are mentioned.
Lazarus and Sasha are a complete package and this seems to be happily ever after.
The side characters make this book all the more entertaining.
This is an action packed plot with crime and romance that had me so excited to keep reading.
This has great cover art and I am disappointed that I was a bit lost.
What would you sacrifice for family?
A story true to its name the conclusion seems perfect for this book so I can only imagine the rest of the reads.
I truly enjoyed this author and I will be looking out for the rest of the series.

The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price AUDIO BOOK by C. L. Schneider – Review by Melissa Saxton

Magic-Price (The Crown of Stones, #1)Magic-Price by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ian Troy a magic shinree who has freedom in a world where anyone who can use magic is drugged and enslaved due to the destruction they can cause. the magic cost in this particular story is death of anything with life near the spell casted. People… trees… grass… everything and Ian learns this devastating fact on a major scale when he discovers the crown of stones.

However there is so much more to Ian’s Story as you meet the characters surrounding him and journey into a deep dark tunnel of secrets of his birth, his heritage and all the lies and manipulation that have plagued his entire existence.

This is the first book of a series exploring multiple races at war with one another for the same reason… its all about control. it begs the question can the races find a way to get along?

I’m very intrigued as the final chapter left me with my jaw hanging open at its ending that I wasn’t expecting.

Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter) by Manda Mellett – Review by Samantha Jayne Grubey

Red's Peril Part 2: The Prez's Old Lady (Satan's Devils MC Vegas #2)Red’s Peril Part 2: The Prez’s Old Lady by Manda Mellett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mixed feelings for this one, I was anticipating reading this ever since I finished the first one and that cliffhanger. I like Red and Chery’s relationship and where that was heading and then we had the child thrown in and it felt like a huge chunk of this book fell on about then instead of Red and Cheryl which is what I was hoping. The book was still okay I enjoyed reading it for the most part and the book was brilliantly written.

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J Berger Illustrator: KC Snider – Review by Felicia Bates

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus?Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J. Berger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Every year the spirit of Santa enters the hearts and minds of people willing to listen.”

I am 32 years old and it is hard to convince me there is no such thing as Santa. I’ve been fortunate enough in my short life to have seen so many instances where the spirit of Christmas and the kindness of others has kept the hope alive for me. I think this is why Mom, is There a Santa Clause was such a big hit for me. I loved the way Lucas’ mom kept his dream alive so that Lucas could do the same for his younger siblings and classmates. My children are still young enough to be swept away by the magic of believing but this is the perfect book for that “stage” in life when they’re no longer so sure. This book kept a sentimental smile on my face throughout each page (and maybe got me a touch emotional too).
