Orion’s Kiss by Claire Luana
4 Stars

I truly love this author. I have read several of her novels and have never been disappointed. This is another beautifully written story. It is based on Orion and the Pleiades sisters. I’ve always loved greek mythology and I enjoy when authors incorporate it into their stories.

Meriah is actually one of the Pleiades sisters, Merope. She has been stuck in a loop of constantly being reincarnated to watch her sisters die by Orion’s hands. In each lifetime, she has tried to stop their deaths to no avail. She decides that this lifetime will be different. If she gets rid of Orion then he can’t harm her sisters. Realizing she can’t kill someone in cold blood, Meriah has to come up with plan b.

It was a light read with a dark edge to it. The story was well written with solid characters. I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more from this author.

Aiko ( The Heartstrings Series Book 1) by Brooke May
4 Stars

This was a cute story. I think the concept was very original. It’s about Aiko, who is a Cupid, needing to help Alejandro get together with the woman he is meant to be with. Alejandro, who is very good looking, has no clue when it comes to women. He is Aiko’s first case in forty years. She was exiled because she caused the worst tragedies in human history. Needless to say, this lead to some comical moments. I found the story to be entertaining with the twist of an unsuccessful cupid. The story is fun, light and filled with likeable characters.

I thought this book was really cool. It was the first book that I have read from this author and I found the story to be quite original. It had vampires and fae but also several other supernaturals. The story takes place in a hotel with a hidden agenda. It’s a supernatural refuge! They live in peace while in the hotel. They only place they are allowed to fight is in the Gauntlet. The book was filled with action, mischief and love. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author.

4 Stars

I was kind of hesitant to read this book once I found out it was about Barbara Knollman. I haven’t liked her in the other books but I love this story. Honestly, I think this might be my favourite book in this series. The author threw in many surprises that I didn’t see coming which added so much depth to the main character.

Barbara is running for mayor of Las Vegas and it’s close to election day. Something happens which makes her realize that her life is in danger. Grudgingly she teams up with the Paranormal Talent Agency to find out who is after her.

I won’t say anymore because I don’t want to ruin anything. It’s another book filled with suspense, danger, romance and many surprises. I love this series!

4 Stars

This is the first book that I have read in this series. It can be read as a stand-alone but for me personally, I would have liked to have read the others first. I like knowing everything and it would have been good to know the history between the main characters and their stories. I liked how the author intertwined the Bible and the history of the angels with the witches. I found it added more depth to the story. I found this book to be quite original and entertaining. I will definitely be reading the preceding parts to this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Deal With Death (Crescent City Wolf Pack Book 4) by Carrie Pulkinen
4 Stars

This is another amazing shifter romance by Ms. Pulkinen. It is part four in the Crescent City Wolf Pack Series but you can read it as a stand-alone. The story is filled with love, death and voodoo. Odette Allemand is a voodoo practitioner who’s Met Tet is the god of death. Unfortunately she’s been on his bad side for the past few years. She’s stuck in a cycle of rebirth and violent death and vows to never fall in love again. James walks into her life and throws a wrench in her plans. Now she must beg forgiveness from the god of death if she wants to survive this life.

This is a story that will hook you in from the start and not let you go until the end. With mystery, danger and suspense, you will not be able to read fast enough to see what happens. I loved the book and found it to be original and engaging. I hope there will be a part five.

Never Let Me Go (Bayou Devils MC Book 6) by A.M Myers
4 Stars

This is book six in the Bayou Devils MC series. This series keeps getting better and better. This story can be read as a stand-alone but I highly suggest that you read the others as well. I loved every single one of them. A.M Myers has become one of my favourite authors. I love her style of writing. She knows how to pull you in and keep you hooked until the very end. Her characters are lovable and relatable. This book is no different.

Juliette was in a serious accident that took the life of her father and her memory of the last five years. Imagine waking up and not even recognizing your fiancé! As much as she tried, she felt too alone. Juliette decided to go back to the Bayou; back to a place she could remember that she called home. Her friend sent Sawyer to pick her up and the connection is instant.

Sawyer is another sexy, alpha biker with a heart of gold. He meets Juliette and the chemistry blows him away. Though he’s been through a slew of bad relationships, he knows Juliette is different. He also knows that she’s hiding something. After a few attempts on her life, Juliette is forced to come clean. To put it lightly, Sawyer was not impressed.

The story is filled with twists and turns, suspense and romance. I loved this book and believe you will too.

Dread by Jeff Wade
4 Stars

This short novella consists of two short stories. The first story is quite confusing and I didn’t know what was going on. The story ends and everything makes sense. It is quite gruesome and macabre. When I got to the end, I realized I loved the story. It was really well written.

The second story I feel should have been a full book. You get a glimpse into the mind of a psycho. The author gives enough info to have you care about the characters but then ends the story. It left me with so many questions. I would have liked to know what happened after.

Tracking Numbers (Lost Boys MC Book 1) by Janice Whiteaker
4 Stars

This was the first book that I have read from this author. I really enjoyed this story. It was well written with memorable characters. Tracker is the bad boy alpha male with a heart of gold and Kerri is a strong female lead who brought all kinds of sass. I liked the secondary characters as well especially Violet. She definitely put a smile on my face. I hope that we see her more often throughout the series.

Though I think the author should have built some of the characters more ie: King, I feel she did a good enough job because the book is short. The story was fast paced and filled with romance, danger and suspense. I will definitely be looking to read the rest of the series.

Nite Fire: Smoke and Mirrors (Book 3) by C.L. Schneider
4 Stars

With every book that I read in this series, I love it even more. Dahlia grows and evolves within each book. Her powers are growing although her self confidence is still lacking at times. This is one of the things that I love about her. She’s a deadly killer but she has a conscience. She wants to do the right thing and tries her best to protect the underdog.

There is one giant mess after another leading to a disaster of a crime scene. Body parts are spewing up from the sewers and Dahlia has no clue who’s behind it. Most of the body parts aren’t human. How is she supposed to cover up this mess? Everyday gets harder to lie to Creed because he sees through her bull. Dahlia’s getting tired of lying but needs to protect her friends.

There are many twists and turns which will keep you on the edge of your seat. The author throws in a few surprises as well. With certain information leaking out and some reappearances of people from Dahlia’s past, this book is definitely exciting. The author ends the book leaving you freaking out. I can’t wait for the next installment in the series.
