Raine Down (The Shadow Guardians Book 1) by CB Samet – Review by Amy Brennan

Raine Down (The Shadow Guardians, #1)Raine Down by C.B. Samet
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes. Yes, please. I ultimately view myself as a strong, independent, fierce heroine in my own story, so whilst reading novels of any genre, but especially that of the supernatural variety, I melt. Raine, the Shadow Guardian, is a fierce woman, one that has stepped up to the plate to take on those that your every day Jane couldn’t seen, nor would be bothered if given the opportunity. Meanwhile she’s out kicking butt and taking names and working on taking down one of the baddest bad guys to walk this world, and others.

I respect that we can’t always do everything ourselves, which is where Special Agent Will comes into play. He feels he’s got the information he needs to come out on top and show everyone (and everything) that he’s got what it takes to take down the most notorious killer/evil out there. He doesn’t seen Raine coming, nor the information she’s about to drown him with. I love the chemistry, sizzle that comes off these pages, the need for that win, and the pat on the pack that comes from really defeating the evil that walks this world. The descriptive nature that this author brings to the table is like no other I’ve read as of late, and I stayed up way, way too late finishing it up. I cannot wait until February when the next installment is released. Highly recommend picking this up, you won’t regret it!

A Christmas to Remember by 5 Prince Publishing – Review by Amy Brennan

A Christmas to Remember: An Anthology from 5 Prince PublishingA Christmas to Remember: An Anthology from 5 Prince Publishing by Bernadette Marie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely adore anthologies such as this, where all the novellas come out strong at the end with happiness, cheer, and just overall perfected contentment. I would tell you any one of these was better than the other but that second chance love stories, friends to lovers and just ultimately love during the holidays is bound to bring you cheer and prep you for the upcoming season! I would suggest giving this a read, great authors, amazing writing styles and I’d be surprised if it fails in captivating your attention, interest and emotions! Definitely recommend!

Faultless Love (The Bennetts of Langston Falls Book 1) by KG Fletcher – Review by Amy Brennan

Faultless Love (The Bennetts of Langston Falls, #1)Faultless Love by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodness me. Honestly, just the first chapter of this novel had me tearing up this morning as I lay awake pondering the world and all the changes surrounding us as of late. Maybe not as emotionally stable as I would like to be if a novel can knock my morning into a flurry of emotions first thing but I loved it. Absolutely, one hundred percent about this author and the way her writing draws you in, having you hold your breath and hoping for the best outcome imaginable. If only I could hire her on to write up the blueprint to my life for the next few months, I know I’d be in good hands.

Theodore and Robyn are, well, just exactly what they need to be. They have their headstrong ways, their ability to weave each other into the best versions of themselves individually and together, and it’s admirable. Love, they say, the real way you’re meant to be loved, matches the love and want and need that lays deep in your own soul, and these two did just that. Honestly, I cannot wait to read more of The Bennetts, and anything else that’s brought to my bedside table with her name on it!

The Virus of Beauty (The Virus of Beauty Book 1) by C.B. Lyall – Review by Amy Brennan

The Virus of BeautyThe Virus of Beauty by C.B. Lyall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What fun! This novel really revolves around the basis that sometimes things aren’t as they seem, and though you feel and believe in one thing, this doesn’t mean that you are right. Nor does it mean you are wrong. Truly, I felt as though the author was trying to nail down the point that you don’t have to let go of your beliefs just to take on part of someone or something else’s. You just need to believe in yourself and what you have within you to take on the world. At least, that’s this readers take.

Ultimately, I really did enjoy the authors writing style, the descriptive way it was presented as well as our main character, Wilf and those that he comes into contact with shortly after a devastating loss. For so long he felt stuck under the feet of family members, and all of a sudden, he isn’t so much anymore. But that’s when things start to really get interesting. Honestly, I read this novel fairly quickly, and I really want to reread it again and take my time to fully immerse myself. Potentially will be back to right a more in depth review but very much look forward to more of this series and author’s work! On my To Read list for sure!

Elemental Fire (The Hidden Realms Book 1) by EG Manetti – Review by Amy Brennan

Elemental Fire (The Hidden Realms #1)Elemental Fire by E.G. Manetti
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This authors writing is worthy of a chef’s kiss. Honestly, I loved the descriptive nature of the writing, the way that I automatically stepped into the role of Sin and really hone her skills as my own so that I could become one with the story and the characters in which she interacts with. From what she does and who she becomes as needed, it’s hard not to fall in love with her character and the feelings and emotions that whirl around. Let’s go, Rad! These two just sizzle and honestly, one of the most chemistry filled connections I’ve read in the last while. I absolutely adored how they both really wanted to go for the gold and protect themselves and their world(s)

Overall, certainly not a novel I would want to miss out on, and likely will reread as more novels in the series are released to get the best overall of their worlds and characters and everything fantastic that this author brought to life. Please don’t dismiss this as another romantic paranormal run of the mill book. Take the time to read it and you’ll be pleased! Highly recommend.

Devlin by Angela K. Parker – Review by Amy Brennan

DevlinDevlin by Angela K. Parker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Honestly, this is exactly the kind of novel my subconscious needed to get me through my slump. Not only does Devlin and Evelyn have the kind of attraction that really sizzles off the page, but it encourages you to root for them during the duration of the novel. There, of course, are the ups and downs that come with a ‘forbidden office romance,’ but knowing we had a guaranteed happily ever after had me hunkering down and absorbing everything this author had to offer within these pages today. Yes. One day. Read. That is all that you need to know.

I would highly suggest reading this if you’re looking for something far better than wasting your day binge watching a show, even though I happily admit that I am guilty of this habit as well. Reading their story was probably one of the better choices I have made this month. Truly. You won’t regret picking this up. Do it! Highly recommend.

Borrowed Time by Lane Cohen – Review by Amy Brennan

Borrowed TimeBorrowed Time by Lane Cohen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have always enjoyed the concept of the butterfly effect which I feel really is tied in with most time travel thoughts and ideas and it just overall really peaks my interest. This author does a bang up job of hooking the reader from the very start with the descriptive ways of his writing style, and then loops them into the thoughts, concerns and emotions of those of whom he is writing about. It was definitely a more involved read than a lot of the novels I’ve been picking up lately, and it made me realize how much I enjoy having to visualize and conceptualize as well as enjoy the entertainment authors bring forward in their written works of art.

What would you do if you could change a decision you made? Would you do it all over again, or would you see where fate takes you with some intervention? Get ready to buckle your seat belt because this was an addictive ride. Looking forward to seeing what he brings forward next. Highly recommend!

Friends with Benies (Paris in Springtime Book 7) by T.B. Bond – Review by Amy Brennan

Friends with Benies: An AMBW Paranormal Romance (Paris in Springtime Book 7)Friends with Benies: An AMBW Paranormal Romance by T.B. Bond
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, I cannot get enough of Wednesday’s name. First of all. Secondly, who could resist the cutest little love story with paranormal/supernatural aspects, best friend and soul mate vibes galore. Right away, you get the impression that this is going to have a happy ending, despite some of the main character’s best efforts to ensure that they break it off. I also didn’t realize it was not the first installment in this series, and will be sure to go back and read more of this authors work.

I’m always looking for something with a touch of something different, and this author definitely added some spice and suspense into the mix. I did feel as though there was a lot of reiteration of the characters feelings, though I’m sure it was just to hit the point home, it just seemed like it dragged out the story line a little. This, however, is what my love dreams are made of, and eventually will find the best friend in life that just wants me to have it all, and just be me. Overall, a great little read, brought forward this reader’s giggles, gasps, and goosebumps.

We Blend (Falling for the Rockstar’s Daughter Book 1) by Willa Drew – Review by Amy Brennan

WE Blend (Falling for the Rockstar's Daughter Series #1)WE Blend by Willa Drew
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So sweet. I absolutely love the way that these two star crossed lovers have their own sets of pros and cons that seem to compliment the other, and give the other the ability to better themselves in all aspects of their lives. Though they may not have been honest from the start, there’s something to be said for feeling that instant connection. I have always felt as though others have a secret agenda, so following this connection, their dialogue, and the plot thicken as the pages were flipped, I enjoyed the back and forth immensely.

Family comes first, always, and it is made apparent within these pages that the author feels much the same and wants her characters to be portrayed as such as well. The character building, the angst that one would feel at their age, and the weight of the world comes through to the reader clearly, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading Will and Melodie’s story. Will be back for more from her. Pure entertainment, well done!
