My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Playing Series 3 Book Set by Stephanie Queen is a new adult sports romance series. I was so glad I read this as a box set because I couldn’t put it down and didn’t have to wait for the next one!

Playing for Love is a second chance romance. Gabriel and Mia definitely have some sparks but there is one problem, Mia’s best friend is Gabriel’s girlfriend. Mia moves to Boston though and that’s when things start to change.

Playing for the Money is all about the bad boy. Hunter has a terrible reputation even if most of what is said isn’t true. The current sexual harassment situation doesn’t help things at all. Now he has a “handler” to keep him out of trouble and make his rep better. Cat and Hunter are attracted to each other but Hunter wants to make it to the end of the season with no drama and Cat being the coaches daughter is off limits. What are they to do?

Playing for Keeps is an enemies to lovers story. Tate and Chloe are just about instant enemies. Tate can’t stand the media after an incident at his uncle’s funeral and Chloe is a sports reporter which is basically asking for trouble with Tate. While at a bar, Chloe overhears some information about Tate that she can’t help but investigate. Will this create more tension between the two?

I absolutely enjoyed this series! I couldn’t put it down. Each book had their own flare that just draws you in.

Pharaoh’s Forgery (Karina Cardinal Mysteries Book 4) by Ellen Butler – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Pharaoh's Forgery (Karina Cardinal Mystery Book 4)Pharaoh’s Forgery by Ellen Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Pharoah’s Forgery: Karina Goes on Vacation by Ellen Butler is book four of the Karina Cardinal Mystery series. You should definitely read this series in order because Karina finds herself on some pretty epic adventures and you wouldn’t want to miss any of it!

Karina has been in quite a few jams as Michael would say so a girls trip is a no brainer. Of course, Karina should have expected that it wouldn’t be that easy because of course she finds herself in another pickle. This book as well as the others in the series, do a great job of keeping you on your toes. You’re always wondering what happens next! I don’t want to give too much away about Karina’s newest mystery so I’ll just say, you always wonder what’s going to happen next!

The author does a great job of keeping you intrigued. You just have to know what going to happen next! I definitely recommend this book!

That Incredible Kiss (Kissed By Fate 3) By Tamara Ferguson – Review by Angelina Frazzini

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That Incredible Kiss by Tamara Ferguson is book three of the Kissed by Fate series. This book! I couldn’t put it down!

Ashley and Brian fought their attraction to each other for a long time. They shared one moment and everything seemed like it would line up even though they were both leaving after high school. Not everything is as easy as that and their family drama inevitably gets between them. Ashley matured from the spoiled young girl to a very strong independent woman. That’s the woman Brian meets again when he returns to Crystal Rock ten years later. Will their family secrets and drama keep them apart again or will they be able to move passed it?

I really enjoyed this book. Ashley wasn’t exactly my favorite at first but seeing how she grew and matured changed my opinion of her. Sometimes life experiences force you to grow and adapt. Ashley is a strong one. I highly recommend this book!

DEADLY WEAPON (Jake Wolfe Book 5) by Mark Nolan – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Deadly Weapon (Jake Wolfe #5)Deadly Weapon by Mark Nolan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Deadly Weapon by Mark Nolan is book five of the Jake Wolfe series. Though it’s part of the series, this book can also be read as a standalone. This book is non stop action and does well at holding your attention! This book all too well can be related to real life which pulls you in even further because you think ‘what if’.

Jake and his ever faithful war dog Cody are at it again. So much happens in this book I couldn’t possibly do it justice but I’ll say, it all starts with a trip to Alaska. I’m sure when Jake planned to go fishing he had no idea what would happen next.

This book is so timely with everything happening in the world right now related to COVID. Totally relatable and definitely pulls you in!
