4 Stars

This is the third book in the Spicetopia series. I think this one was better than the second book. When I realized the story would revolve around Neve Romano, I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy it. I didn’t particularly like him in the other books. Learning about his back story allowed me to understand him better and explains why he is the way he is. The growth of his character is remarkable and by the end of the book, I really liked him.

Someone is trying to sabotage Spicetopia‘s grand opening therefore the story is filled with surprises and a twist that I didn’t see coming. With action and quite a few heated scenes, this book will keep you interested from beginning to end.

Hope (Feisty Lawyers Series Book 4) by Seelie Kay
4 Stars

This is the fourth book in the Feisty Lawyers series. The thing I like about this series is that the books are fast paced and action packed. Though they are short, so much happens in each one. I do suggest that you read the others first so that you understand the back story of the characters in this one.

This story centers on Hope Ali. Her and her father Sheik Ali sought asylum in the U.S when she was a teenager. It has always been her dream to work for the agency and at age twenty two it is finally coming true. She has surpassed all her training and is allowed to go out in the field. This mission doesn’t go as planned and Hope ends up broken in more ways than one. Can she survive or is her life in the agency over before it began?

Virtue and Vice (Spicetopia #2) by Phoebe Alexander
4 Stars

Though this is book two in the Spicetopia series, it can be read as a stand-alone. This book revolves around Moon and Katja whereas the first part involves mainly Cy and Jolie. It would be a good idea to read the first book so that you can get a background on the story line but you can still follow the story if you don’t. All four embark on a new enterprise, an adult theme park. At this park, there will be something to satisfy everyone’s fantasies. Sounds exciting! The four are getting quite comfortable with each other but certain personal problems arise between them. Can they handle things maturely or will their hopes and dreams of building this park blow up in their faces?

A little warning, this book is explicitly sexual. It is definitely geared towards a mature audience. Some scenes are so hot, I’m surprised my book didn’t catch on fire! This is another winning book by Phoebe Alexander.

4 Stars

I’ve read other books by Phoebe Alexander and enjoyed them. This was no different. It was a fun, light read with a lot of steamy romance thrown in. It was amusing to see what goes on behind the scenes of the theme park. Cy Sweet is the youngest son of the Sweets, owners of Sweetopia. They send him undercover to work in the bakery to find out who is leading the revolt that’s in the works. The moment Cy lays eyes on the Red Velvet Queen, he quickly gets sidetracked from his objective. The better he gets to know Jolie, the harder he falls. Working in the theme park is an eye opener for Cy. Can their budding romance survive the secrets that they are both hiding?

To be honest, I really didn’t like Cy. He was arrogant, selfish and full of himself; a total spoiled brat. Thankfully he changed throughout the book where by the end, I was on team Cy, cheering him on. It was a fun read and I’m interested to see what happens in part two.

To Kill a Fae (The Dragon Portal Book 1) by Jamie A. Waters – Review by Anna Hirsch

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To Kill a Fae (The Dragon Portal Book 1) by Jamie A. Waters
5 Stars

This book blew me away! Jamie A. Waters is an amazing storyteller. Her writing style reminds me of Sarah J. Maas in the way she pulls you into her world with captivating characters and a complex storyline. I fell in love with not only the main characters but the secondary ones as well. I’ve always loved strong female leads and Sabine is one kick ass lethal heroine.

She’s been on the run for the last ten years, hiding amongst humans. With two demons and a witch by her side to protect her she should be okay but the Wild Hunt never gives up. Sabine can’t help but be intrigued when a smuggler shows up with his own secrets to hide. She extremely attracted and his power is pulling her in but can Sabine trust him?

This is a riveting paranormal romance filled with action and intrigue that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I know this is a series that I’ll love and can’t wait to read the next part.

Hitting the High Note (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 3) by C.A King
4 Stars

This is the third book in the series. Each book focuses on a particular horseman so technically you can read it as a stand-alone but I wouldn’t recommend it. There is an underlying story line throughout the series so reading it from the beginning is a good idea. This story centers around Uriel. Their sole purpose of existence is to guard the gates of Hell and someone wants it open. While Uriel is hunting down demons, he comes across a damsel in distress and thinking himself a cowboy, comes to her aid. I think it’s hilarious that an archangel walks and talks like a cowboy. Saving her leads to adventure, danger and love.

Though it’s a quick read, a lot happens on these pages. The plot unfolds a little more, making you realize that there is more going on than you originally believed. Looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Elemental Fae Academy (Elemental Fae Academy Book2) by Lexi C. Foss and J.R Thorn
5 Stars

After the cliffhanger left me dangling in part one, I couldn’t wait to read this one. This book does not disappoint! It picks up exactly where the last one finishes and takes you on a roller coaster ride filled with danger, intrigue and so much passion, it will leave you breathless. This is not a stand-alone, go back and read the first part. This series is well worth it!

Exos is taken and Claire feels the loss. It is like a piece of her is missing. Titas tried to help but she needs so much more. Cyrus enters the picture and although he’s an arrogant jerk most of the time, I love him! He’s exactly what Claire needs. He becomes her rock of support and like a tsunami, threatens to destroy anyone who tries to harm her.

More characters were introduced in this novel. Each unique and complex within themselves. I loved each and every one of them for different reasons. Her chosen mates add their individual strengths to her, giving her exactly what she needs. Claire has a lot on her plate in this book. Trying to locate Exos, tentatively getting to know her other mates better and trying to stay alive. Someone is out to get her and they need to figure out who it is before it’s too late.

The development and the growth of the characters was amazing. So much happens in this novel, it will blow you away. I loved this book even more than the first. This series keeps getting better and better. I can’t wait to read part three.

Evil Sushi (Evil Sushi Series Book 1) by C.A King
4 Stars

I have read many novels by C.A King and loved them all. This book was weird but in a good way. The concept was so original, I loved it. The story takes place some time in the future. Humans saved the animals and the climate but destroyed the ecosystem under our oceans. By not eating meat, people overfished to compensate and now there are barely any fish left. In a small town on the Eastern Coast, two fishermen trudge out to sea in hopes of catching something to at least feed their family. What happens next will definitely take you by surprise. Excitement soon turns to trepidation and eventually leads to horror. With everything happening in the world today, can this be a possibility in our world? Although the book is fictional, it does make you think. Looking forward to seeing what happens in part two.
