Spar by Randi Perrin – Review by Ana Cortes

SparSpar by Randi Perrin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I felt like this was a short book, just because it was a fast read. It is a contemporary romance, which is what I prefer. I got to say I felt like I learned a lot of terminology regarding to the fighting done in this book. I enjoyed the plot, I liked the characters. Chloe was easy to like from the beginning. I liked that she was tough, not easily falling head over heels even though internally she did want Locke; a total bad ass. Locke is O.M.G, just with his accent alone I was done for. Jaja I enjoyed the chemistry between them, and the build up just goes along well with the plot. I wouldn’t have gone for this book just because it was a girl fighter, yes I like them spicy but not to this extreme but I found myself being okay with it. Definitely give it a try even if you think it won’t be your cup of tea, you might realize the story and characters have you hooked that you don’t want to stop reading.

Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers #5) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Ana Cortes

Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 5)Turning the Tide by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This can be read as a standalone. Okay now let me start with my thoughts on it.
Omg!! This was a new kind of book for me. I haven’t ever read a swingers book, thought I might hate it but on the contrary I enjoyed it a lot. I enjoyed the story line of this book; it wasn’t just an orgy fest. I honestly felt bad for the guy in this book. I also loved that you find yourself hating on his wife making his situation and the fact that he finds someone so much better. There was a mystery to this story line as well, and to me that’s probably what kept me wanting to finish it so soon. If you are wondering about the sexual scenes, let me just say they are steamy. I would have loved to know more on the ending and know what happened with all the bad people. I’m twisted but I really hated his wife and I wanted and hoped to see her destroyed, sadly it doesn’t really touch up on her misery if any. It was a hea, so no worries there. I would totally pick up more books from this author.

Terror in Boring Town (A Sam and Rex Adventure Book 1) by Hoot N. Holler – Review by Ana Cortes

Terror in Boring Town (A Sam and Rex Adventure, #1)Terror in Boring Town by Hoot N. Holler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I’ll start with the obvious, this is a kids book generated for the preteens to young teen age group. I believe this is a great story for kids, I believe they would stay interested in finishing the story. The story takes place during the summer. So obviously the school is out and by the title Sam and Rex live in a boring town. Their minds are pretty active in this book making it a mystery they have to solve. There are many funny moments in the book making it even more enjoyable for kids in my opinion. I think this will be a big hit for kids wanting to “investigate” along with Sam and Rex.

Immortal Desires Anthology – Review by Ana Cortes

Immortal DesiresImmortal Desires by Melanie James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aaahhh this is a great collection. I’m a big fan of the paranormal, and this is all about just that. The stories all vary, since all are from different authors but they are 5 star authors. The stories are well written. Many will keep you wanting to read from that series and find out what is next in either the book or other characters.

The first story will suck you in. The prologue does a good job on this. I enjoyed many of the stories because of the characters. I loved that a lot of the women were portrayed as tough, no bull crap attitudes. Yet when the alpha or mate came along they were still able to have a sweet side.

If you are looking for steamy scenes this set is amazing. Finally I enjoyed most the story Demons by C.J. Hartnett. This was a new for me, since I haven’t read much on demons. As soon as you start this you are hooked. I loved that the heroine was dangerous but also feeling very lonely. I loved that people feared her yet always told her it’s a weakness. This is by far my favorite in the whole set. This set is a must for all that are into the paranormal.

Blade’s Edge: Satan’s Devils MC #10
by Manda Mellett

First let me say; this can be read as a standalone for which I’m so glad. I’m always down for a book where the main H/h are cynics in love and in needing a significant other. I enjoyed the actual story line. I think it was well written. The drama was there and it kept me reading until I finished the book. This book has made me want to get back into reading MCs. Overall I enjoyed this book and I’m wanting to go back from the start and read them all as well as any other that will be coming out in this series.

Wtf, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah – Review by Ana Cortes

Wtf, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah

It’s a book that made me question my idea of having a relationship with God. The book is based on her life obstacles and her relationship with God. This title alone is what made me even consider this book; since yes I have gotten to that point myself. Overall I think this book does a great job of making you reflect on your hardships and faith. This book by no means forces you to do anything; on the contrary I think reading about her highs and lows has made it easier for me to dissect mine. I have even partaken in some of her suggestions. I would definitely recommend this book to those who question if god is even listening to them, if anything it’ll probably get you speaking to him again.
