Center of Gravity (An Ice Tigers Hockey Romance #2) by Isabella Cassazza

This is book 2 in An Ice Tiger Hockey Romance Series, but can be read as a stand alone. This is the first book I’ve read by the author and I’ve got to say I want more. Isabella is talented and brings characters to life.

Emilia, a clothing heiress, finds that her grandfather buys a hockey team. Living in Rome she has to make the move to America. When she runs into the person she was looking for. The quote I choose for Emilia is: “If your daddy doesn’t want us, we’ll make it on our own.”

Matt, a hockey player, does something he doesn’t regret in Italy. When the person shows up he’s shocked. Matt doesn’t want a relationship or does he? The quote I choose for Matt is: “The babies are all over the internet?”

This book had me reading the book and not wanting to put it down. This was a phenomenal read and I really want more. Matt and Emilia are by far the cutest!

One Hot Texas Summer (A Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge Romance #1) by Nicole Flockton

This is the first book in A Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge Romance Series and I loved it. Nicole has a way of bringing these boys to life. I was transferred into the book.

Kelly Turner, running from love, finds it at herself. She is shying away from love, but wants it. She finds herself thinking of someone she shouldn’t be. What happens when they have to work together? The quote I choose for Kelly is: “When you lashed out you hurt me a lot, Tate. I didn’t want to be around you. Again the person I cared for treated me like a worthless possession. Like I didn’t deserve to be an important part of their life. Help you through dealing with whatever happened with your dad.”

Tate Prentice, the youngest of Prentice boys, is known as a playboy. He’s done a lot of growing up since the accident, but doesn’t let anyone know. When he finds himself having to work with Kelly Turner things change. The quote I choose for Tate is: “Kelly Turner, will you do me the honor of going steady with me for the rest of our lives?”

I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Nicole has really outdone herself. I highly recommend this if you’re looking for romance and witty.

In the Arms of Morpheus: A Speculative Romance (Antiheroes #2) by Gaia B. Amman

This is the first book in the Antiheroes Series and I really enjoyed reading this. Gaia knows how to grab a reader’s attention and keep it. I had a hard time putting the book down.

Tasha, has a PhD and is a chemist, doesn’t do love. She has her heart on lock down, but something in her dreams makes her want to let down her guard. She goes looking for help, but finds herself in trouble. The quote I choose for Tasha is: “What if Hazel Eyes has been around for a while? I mean, I’ve had several true dreams—”

Josh, a dream walker, finds himself helping Tasha. He wants more from her, but doesn’t know she feels the same. Things are hard for him after something happens between them. The quote I choose for Josh is: “Tasha, I have major concerns about Kai. Astral projection into reality is rare—”

I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good page turner. Gaia is quite the author who paints an amazing world. I wanted to step into the book and not come out. I can’t wait for the next book.

The Divided Twin (The Divided Series #2) by M Billiter with Kyle Thomas

This is the second book of The Divided Series and I’ve got to say that I love this. They do amazing work and I couldn’t put this down.

Branson, twin #1, is still hearing voices, but it’s not Trevor who makes another appearance. He’s now in college and is about done. The quote I choose for Branson is: “And I’m sure they don’t battle with multiple voices competing with each other for top spot.”

Aaron, twin #2, worries about his brother. Aaron and Branson have never been separated, but college is different. While he’s no longer in his home state doesn’t mean he’s lost interest. The quote I choose for Aaron is: “When my mom first got sick, I planted a jasmine tree outside her bedroom window in Casper. I wanted her to wake up or go to bed with the smell of jasmine. It’s not too much or not enough but just the right amount.”

I highly recommend you read A Divided Mind before this. This book was written amazingly and I couldn’t put it down. M. Billiter can put words down like no other. I can’t wait for the next read by her.

A Divided Mind (The Divided Series #1) by M. Billiter

My first read by the author as well as the first book in The Divided Series. This book had me in tears and I couldn’t put it down. This was a great read and a great page turner.

Tara, a mother of 4, finds out that one of her oldest is not doing good. She doesn’t understand what is going on and how to help him. She thinks she did something wrong. The quote I choose for Tara is: “Just more appointments for Branson. More doctors. More uncertainty. Less hope.”

Branson, son of Tara, has got something wrong. Voices. Things normal teens don’t get. He’s lived with it for so long he doesn’t understand what’s going on. Doctors. The quote I choose for Branson is: “One minute I was asleep at my girlfriend’s house, and the next thing I know I was on the side of the road with someone else’s car, a cop thinking I was drunk, and my girlfriend and this dude bailing me out. I swear I’m not lying. I don’t remember how I got into the car or nothing.”

This was an emotional read so grab a box of tissues. I do highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a page turner.

5/5 Stars

Bird In A Snare (Lord Hani Mystery #1) by N.L. Holmes

This is the first book I’ve read by Mrs. Holmes and what a read it was. This was a phenomenal read and I can’t wait for the next installment of the series. The characters are so real and it’s hard to put down.

Amen-hotep aka Hani is a diplomat and travels. He travels to find a friend who has been murdered. Things aren’t going well at home and things aren’t going well in the investigation. The quote I choose for Hani is: “Nub-nefer, my love, you must have trust. Trust in our good king, who is devoted to the Hidden One, his father. Look at how he’s built temples to his honor and remade the Southern Ipet temple completely. I can only repeat: he would never permit his son to do anything impious. You must believe that.”

Amen-mose aka Maya, Hani’s scribe, is taken along the journey with his employer. Maya wouldn’t be where he is if not for Hani and feels he owes him. He goes without complaint and finds that there’s something amiss. The quote I choose for Maya is: “Osir protect us! What an abomination! What sort of pervert would stoop to such a thing, Lord Hani?”

This is the first book of the genre that I’ve read and I can’t wait for more. Holmes knows how to catch a reader’s attention and keep it. It was hard to put this book down.

The Widow: A Dark Romantic FantasyThe Widow: A Dark Romantic Fantasy by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5/5 Stars

The Widow by Rebecca E. McEwen & Naomi Valkyrie

This is the first book I’ve ever read by Mrs. McEwen and Mrs. Valkyrie. They have done an outstanding job writing these characters. This book was hard to put down.

Vashti lost her husband and tried to figure out how to move on with her life. She is tired of sitting in the big house by herself. She ventures out to town and things start looking up. The quote I choose for Vashti is: “I know this is an unusual arrangement, but you will be taken care of in the event you should choose to end it. The only way you leave with nothing is if you violate the rules.”

Absalom, a college student, finds that life isn’t all it seems. He goes to a coffee shop and finds himself enchanted by Vashti. He finds himself in a sticky situation and is offered a good thing. The quote I choose for Absalom is: “You’re inviting a virtual stranger into your home? And you’re okay with that?”

Simeon, also a college student, finds himself in the middle of a situation. He goes to a friend hoping he can help out. When he is given the opportunity to stay with his friend things look up. The quote I choose for Simeon is: “Yeah, honestly, I do. You know, I’m really ashamed to say it, but I was expecting some freaky Night of the Living Dead kinda shit when I walked in the door here. It’s funny how you create judgments about people just because they dress weird or act other than what we would consider normal. I don’t want to know what people think about my family and me. Yeah, yeah, man, I have a good feeling about this.”

I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a good romance. It has a dark edge to it and it’s fantastic. This is a hard to put down novel and is a real page turner.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5/5 Stars

Dare Me (The Demonology Series #1) by Felicity Brandon

Felicity has really outdone herself with this book. This is the first book I’ve read by Brandon. As the first book in The Demonology Series this gives you introductions to the fabulous characters. It does involve M/F/M.

Sara, an artist, has been down on her luck lately. Her boyfriend leaves, her mom died, and now she’s lonely in her little apartment. She can’t paint any good paintings to sell. Little does she know things are going to start looking up for her. The quote I choose for Sara is: “I don’t want to sit with him. Come with me, please!”

Raif, a demon, loves to lurk in the shadows of Earth. He knows what he wants and he’s set his sights on Sara. Helping her deal with some things before showing himself to her. The quote I choose for Raif is: “Not just any demon. Your demon, little fawn.”

I highly recommend this for anyone who loves a good Demon novel. It’s fantasy meets reality. Being the first book I’ve read like this I have nothing to compare it to. I enjoyed reading this and can’t wait to see what happens next.

The Traveler: Chimera Revolution (Book of Eleanor #2) by Shannon Nemechek

Mrs. Shannon has really outdone herself with this book! As this is my first read from her I highly recommend reading book 1. I loved everything about this witty, page-turner. This book follows Katie and Colm on their next adventure.

Katie, a 21st century woman, is thrown back into the past. A past in which she finds love. When she starts learning things; it seems the past isn’t all it seems.

Colm, a Captain,is thrown for a loop when he finds love. He learns that his great great great grandfather isn’t all he was told. He learns things his father didn’t even know.

This is the second book of The Eleanor Books and I highly recommend it. It had me on the edge of my seat and I honestly couldn’t put it down. I would read the first so you aren’t confused with what’s happening.

Virtually Gone: A Mended Souls Novel (High Tech Crime Solvers #6) by Jacquie Biggar

This is part of The High Tech Crime Solvers Series, but can be read as a stand alone book. This is my first read by Jacquie and I’m in complete awe. The moment I started reading I couldn’t put it down. Jacquie has a way with wording and her characters.

Julie Crenshaw, a reporter, gets wind that there are rapes happening in her hometown. After being in danger once already her boss and boyfriend want what’s best for her. Her safety. The quote I choose for Julie is: “Well, I’ll be better when I can breathe.”

Matt Roy, a cop, has been working his butt off. First, he has to hunt down a killer who was out to hurt others and now he has to find the perp raping women. He is easily frustrated with reporters trying to get one up on him. He has a need to solve this case as it hits a little close to home. The quote I choose for Matt is: “Oh, no you don’t. Go home and wait. Connor will call as soon as we have any information. I mean it, Jules. Go home.”

I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good crime. This has the best of both worlds, romance and suspense. Mrs. Biggar has done an outstanding job bringing these characters to life.
