The Embers We Seek (A Rebel Princess Serial, #1)The Embers We Seek
By: Acacia K. Parker
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Embers We Seek (A Rebel Princess Serial, #1) by Acacia K. Parker was a gripping read that had me hooked from start to finish.

My first read from this author I was drawn to this book by its beautiful cover, fairy tale retelling status, and the raving reviews. I was not disappointed in the least, this book delivered what it entailed, and I had this short powerful book read in one sitting.

Coming in at a whopping 58 pages, this book maybe low on the word count, but it is powerful. To the point, no fluff, no filler this book has everything you want and more in an epic fairy tale retelling. There is one point where I’m so engrossed that I forgot that this book is full length, the battler is under way, and the hellhounds are burning the place down, and our MC Wren learns is a heart breaking way that magic comes with a price. I loved that bittersweet ending, and the promise of more to come.

Overall this book is a must read, and it will be told it 10 parts, and according to the author a new serial will be released the last full week of every month, the next one coming on June 27th. I’m definitely going to be keeping a look out for the next instalment, because I believe this series if going to be something special.

So with all that said, please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will love this epic dark fairy tale retelling, and you will not be able to look at Cinderella the same way again.

Happy Reading

Beachcomber Enemy: a Romantic Thriller (Beachcomber Investigations Book 10) by Stephanie Queen – Review by Emily Walsh

Beachcomber EnemyBeachcomber Enemy
By: Stephanie Queen
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Enemy by Stephanie Queen was an action packed, fast pace thriller that had me hooked form start to finish.

The latest instalment in the Beachcomber Investigations series, it was a blast right out of the gate. This book hit the ground running and it kept my attention right until the last page was flipped. I like these types of opening, that get your blood flowing, and the plot going right away. It makes for an exciting read, and on that keeps you, as I said, flipping the pages.

Dane and Shana are in danger, and that danger comes from Shana’s past. I loved the flip script, as at first it presented like it would be about Dane. The only thing I didn’t like was how over protective Dane was, I mean, I get it, your loved one is in danger, but man, that was a bit too much, and it almost risked their relationship. I mean Shana is a kickass woman, skilled and strong. There was a disconnect there, and it did take away from the story.

Overall this book was a wicket read, with a solid complex plot, mystery, action and movie worthy choreography, I’m looking forward to more books from this series. So to end, this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Blinded by Betrayal with Spin Drift: Book One (Silent Secrets) by Lisette Kristensen – Review by Emily Walsh

Blinded by Betrayal with Spin DriftBlinded by Betrayal with Spin Drift
By: Lisette Kristensen
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

Blinded by Betrayal with Spin Drift (Silent Secrets #1) Lisette Kristensen was a quick, okay read that kept me reading.

This short read was fast, steamy, actiony, and a little jumpy. The plot for me was a little hard to follow, as I found it didn’t match the synopsis. What I thought I was going to read about, didn’t happen. At first yes, it followed what I was expecting, then things are really smutty, sexy, and I don’t really know why. What I really want to know is what happen with what I thought was the male MC, he just, vanished, and I just, again don’t know. This wasn’t a bad read by all means, it was just for me, not coherent, or smooth. I don’t really know if I like the MC, there wasn’t enough character development, nor was there proper plot development.

Overall if you’re looking for something quick, with a mix of smut, action and espionage, then give this book a chance. As I said, though I felt disjointed with this book, I did like it, and I did have fun reading it. It’s well written, and the dark tone is consistent and hooking. So please take my recommendation and stamp of approval, that you will have fun reading this mixed read.

Happy Reading

Mari is attempting to flee Colombia through the jungle when she is saved by Hannah. A life for a life and she is now responsible for tending to Chris. Chris has been injured and has no memory. Can the two survive the jungle and escape Colombia?

Another amazing action packed romance from this author. I could not put this book down. I loved Mari’s spitfire character. I also loved Chris’ character and the romance between him and Mari. This book has a great storyline and great world building. It can be read as a standalone as well. I highly recommend this novel.

Must Remember (Solum Series #1) by Colleen S. Myers – Review By Chantelle Smith

Must Remember (Solum, #1)Must Remember by Colleen S. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Must remember is Book one in the Solum series from author Colleen S. Myers.
This book has literally held me captivated since the first page and held me there until the very end. I was not expecting to be drawn into the action, suspense and mystery quite so early on in this read but it made everything more heightened while reading it.

Elizabeth ‘Beta’ is introduced straight away and we are thrown into her world – one that not only becomes a mystery to her, but to us as well. We follow her on the journey of ups & downs. The mystery surrounding her own existence on this unknown planet. She becomes a mystery to everyone – and they try anything to figure out why and how she got there and of course the biggest suspense of them all why she was wearing enemies clothing.

This author has created an incredibly vivid, mentally visual read. I couldn’t help but picture the whole planet in my mind while reading it, the look and descriptions of each individual character that Beta comes into contact with. All of it makes for an incredible sci-fi, alien romance novel filled with action, adventure, mystery, suspense, romance and most important an incredible plot.

Each character that Beta interacts with, comes across to you as the reader in different ways. Each of them making their own impressions on Beta and the way acts around them, but you can’t help but love Finn & Marin and of course Ute, but each of these characters has their own story to be told and I loved reading their interactions, feelings and ideas of why Beta is there. Along with the brilliant connections, we cannot forget the magic that is weaved through the story and the history of it.
I loved that we were learning all things along with Beta, it made everything seem more real, and as though we were there living out the story ourselves.

Overall this was an incredible read that I loved that I got the chance to read, and cannot wait to delve into this world again in Book 2 – to see what continues with Beta’s story.

Releasing the Demons (The Order of the Senary #1) by L.D. Rose – Review by Chantelle Smith

Releasing the DemonsReleasing the Demons by L.D. Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, Wow, Wow! This book deserves way more than 5 stars!!

Releasing the Demons is Book 1 in The Order of the Senary series from author L.D. Rose. I cannot believe how incredible this read was. I was totally shocked at how captivating and compelled I was while reading this book. This author has created an incredible imaginative read, full of plot twists, incredibly lovable characters and a read that will last with me for quite some time. I was mentally visualising this whole read the entire time – I had withdrawals every time I had to put this book, but I love it so much I read it in one sitting.

This read was dark, thrilling, suspenseful, action packed and I loved every single page within this book. This read had you on the edge of seat with fear, anticipation and hope that they never found Blaze or Valerie. This was a brilliant take on the vampire fantasy world, it made a change for the main theme of the book to be surrounding hybrids they really don’t get as much recognition but after reading this and meeting Blaze and his brothers they have truly made their way into my heart, especially Blaze. After everything he has endured, I’m surprised he is still holding on and fighting. But everything is made even more difficult when. When Valerie enters his life its not in the best way possible – but boy oh boy does she make a lasting impression and change in Blaze, so much so he realises he does have someone more to love for. She makes him feel and he makes her realise that some ‘leeches’ are better than others.

This two have a (literally) hot connection that just continues to grow and their chemistry just continues to bloom. They are made for each other, they bring out the best in each other and you can’t help but love the way she brings Blaze’s walls down and show his vulnerability when around her.

I cannot wait to see what else it brought to this series. Who’s story we will follow next? But I will most definitely be hoping this isn’t the last we get of Blaze & Valerie’s story – as you can tell this is only the beginning.
