Miami Days Havana NightsMiami Days Havana Nights by Linda Bennett Pennell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one I read by this author. This author tells a story in the past and the present and she does it awesomely. I had no problems keeping up with this story. The main characters are great and the author made me feel like I was right there with them experiencing everything too. The story was switched back and forth between two characters and that really brought it to life. I enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to reading more by this author. I would recommend this to a friend! Happy reading!

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Anastasia Dodson

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas #2)Rogue Wave by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series just keeps getting better and better. I devoured this book and i was sucked into all of the awesomeness. There is twists and turns, I laughed and I cried throughout all of it…. i couldn’t put it down.
I was excited to get Cutter’s Story! He appeared in the first book and i knew i had to get my hands on his story and figure him out. He is such a great character and i was interested to see were his story would go. He meets Valentina and the chemistry between them is off the charts. They are each others equal but they have to find common ground and learn to get along or the chemistry between them will fizzle out and the love hate relationship they have will just turn into hatred.
This story is a must read and i would recommend it to a friend.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a short YA that was a good start to this series. It is the length of a novella so i was able to read it one setting. It was creative and original and i am looking forward to reading more. This story is about Talise. She was a great character and i liked the younger version of her too. The side characters were awesome as well! I liked that there was so much that happened in this book and i was on the edge of my seat for the whole thing. I can’t wait to read more by this author and i would recommend to anyone that likes YA fantasy.

This is the second book in this series and I enjoyed it just as much as i liked the first. This is a continuation of the first book, and I highly recommend reading the books in order. In this book Cindy continues to search for the secrets in her grandmothers past. She never knew this woman but her past is intriguing. She has journals that her grandmother wrote about her life and the more she reads the more secrets she finds. In this book we also learn about Tobias and the struggles he went through. I like all of these characters and i was right there with Cindy trying to figure out where the mystery was headed. I am looking forward to reading more by this author in the future!

Elemental Fae Academy (Elemental Fae Academy, #1)Elemental Fae Academy by Lexi C. Foss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book that i have read by these authors and i loved it. It is an Reverse Harem Romance which means by the end of the series the MC will end up with more than one man. I love RH so i knew as soon as i saw this, i needed to read it. And i was not disappointed! I finished this book in one setting because i couldn’t put it down. The main characters are fantastic and i was excited to see where their stories were headed. This book does have multiple POVs and that gave us more info on the men in this book and i loved that!
This story is about Claire whose world gets turned upside down when she discovers she is a halfling…. Meaning she is half Fae and half human. She had no idea there was this hidden part of her and she has to get her powers under control if she wants to keep the people around her and herself safe. She is put into a fae academy where she will hopefully learn how to control her ever growing powers.
There is a lot of mystery in this book, you don’t know what is going to happen next and it makes things exciting. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series and i would recommend this to anyone that likes RH Academy series!

Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1) by Sherry A. Burton – Review by Anastasia Dodson

Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1)Discovery by Sherry A. Burton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. This story kept me interested throughout the whole of the book and I was intrigued to see where the story was headed. Cindy is the main character and she pulled me right into her story of learning all about her grandmother and the questions she has about the life her grandmother lived. She’s determined to figure out about the lady she never knew and finding those answer are becoming harder to reach as she finds more and more of her things.
This story is a good one. I like that there is a transition between past and present and you never confuse the two because of how good the writing is. I am looking forward to reading more by this author in the future.
Happy reading!

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana – Review By Anastasia Dodson

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery SeriesThe Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This box set is awesome! It has it all… romance, suspense, mystery and of course chocolate! All the things needed to make this an interesting read and a it’s a good one to waste away the day away with. Just don’t read these books on an empty stomach because the food and sweets discussed in this book sound down right sinful and I would love to try them all!
The characters in these books are another thing I should mention. They were fantastic. Even with the magic elements incorporated in them, they were relatable and they were extremely well liked. I couldn’t wait to see where their stories were going and I was sad when the end finally came around. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and I would recommend this box set to a friend!

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This book was fantastic! This is the third book in The Torzial Affair series and it is also the conclusion to the series. This book was a great way to end the series and I’m sad to see it go but it made an amazing and lasting impression. This book has it all… suspense, romance, danger and mystery! I love the main characters Brian and Jenny. Brian’s love was so strong for Jenny, he would do anything for her and he definitely showed that in this book. Jenny has had a hard life and the secrets she knows only make it harder. With the mob out to get her will Jenny be able to survive or will she get caught in the cross hairs?
I am looking forward to reading more by this amazing author and I would recommend this series to a friend!

Al Capone at the Blanche HotelAl Capone at the Blanche Hotel by Linda Bennett Pennell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author and I thought it was an interesting one. It was a historical romance that had quite a bit of suspenseful moments tied into the story line. I really enjoyed reading about the Jack Blevins, his sister Meg, and Meg’s fiancé who is a sheriff’s deputy, and Liz Reams. They all had an extremely important role in the story and I was excited to see where things were headed. The story takes place in the 1930s when Al Capone checked into the Blanche motel. Why was he at this little motel in this small town? Why are there body’s dropping all around town? The story also tells about a present day woman and her search for the truth on what happend in that small unknown town in the 1930s.
I was pulled in the story until the very end and I was eager to see what was going to happen! This story was an interesting one and I am looking forward to reading more by this author.

The Traitor, An Underground Bad Boys SeriesThe Traitor, An Underground Bad Boys Series by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was awesome !! I devoured this book in one settling because I couldn’t put it down! This authors writing has a way of pulling you in, and the attention to detail is great without it being overdone. Josie and Spencer are our main characters and they were great.. They keep getting thrown together even though they think they aren’t right for each other! Will they keep fighting fate or give in and see where the universe takes them?
This author for me is a must read and I cannot wait until I can get my hands on more of her stuff. I would recommend this book to a friend!
Happy Reading!
