Thrilling Ethan (Thrill of the Chase, #2) by Anna Paige – Review by Jenni Bishop

Thrilling Ethan (Thrill of the Chase, #2)Thrilling Ethan by Anna Paige
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thrilling Ethan by Anna Paige certainly lives up to its title and is totally thrilling and amazing and beautifully written. Anna has written a story that is so full of emotions that I found myself in tears as I navigated this journey with these outstanding characters and their world. This book proves that family comes in all shapes and sizes and that love can heal places we didn’t know could be healed. The story equally had me laughing out loud and swooning as our main characters relationship developed not only between themselves but with their friends as well. Anna has certainly blown this story out of the water and I can’t wait to see what comes next in this series. I am now off to read the first book as I don’t want to miss out on any of Annas work.

The Black Knights, #3 The ​Vespers Chronicles by ​Elyse Reyes – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Black KnightsThe Black Knights by Elyse Reyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Black Knights is the third book in the ​Vespers Chronicles by ​Elyse Reyes and is a great continuation of the story. ​This journey with the Vespers is fast paced and action packed and the story is well written and flows nicely. As usual the story is engaging from the very start. I have loved this series from the beginning and love catching up with these characters like they are old friends. Watching Jasper grow and become the woman she is, faults and all, has been amazing. She is strong and powerful whilst at the same time vulnerable. Leading the Vespers is hard enough but when you have someone trying to undermine you from the inside, evil trying to destroy the order itself and people you love there is only so much you can take before you let loose.

Can’t wait to see what’s next.

Bellissimo Fortuna (Beautiful Fortune) (The Family Trilogy Book #1) by Leigh Ann Lunsford – Review by Jenni Bishop

Bellissimo FortunaBellissimo Fortuna by Leigh Ann Lunsford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bellissimo Fortuna (Beautiful Fortune) (The Family Trilogy Book #1) by Leigh Ann  Lunsford is the first book in this series. The story is intriguing and will have you on the  edge of your seat as you ride the roller coaster. I found my heart pounding as I  navigated the twist and turns that you don’t see coming. I was immediately drawn to  the characters and I loved the easy bonds and friendships and the love and loyalties.   This story has it all, romance and love, suspense and mystery, drama and heartbreak  that left me feeling emotional. It is very intense at times but a beautiful story.     If you enjoy a romance that has it all then grab a copy and settle in and enjoy the ride.

Must Love Fashion (Darling Cove Book 1) by Deborah Garland – Review by Debi Kircher

Must Love Fashion (Darling Cove Book 1) by Deborah Garland

4 Stars

This is my first book by this author and although fashion is not something that interests me in a book or in real life for that matter, I really did enjoy this story. The characters were written so that I understood them completely. Andrew has has a heart breaking past and Gwen “the sexy devil that just so happens to wear prada” (LOL I love that) tempts him and and makes him question everything he has ever believed about being in a relationship.

Something else I just don’t like to read about or think about in my everyday life is cancer, and this book shows just how much that awful word and sickness can affect people that have to deal with it in one way or the other. Can these two get past all the hurt they have experienced in their lives and open up to each other, and have happiness together?

I really did enjoy the writing style of this author, and the story flow was spot on. The secondary characters were awesome and I am looking forward to reading more from this author and will definitely be looking forward to the next in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Joined is the first book by Mara Gan is one incredible read and is wonderfully written story. It is a Sci Fi, Fantasy, romance that ​is a winner. I am not typically a Sci Fi lover but I loved this gripping and riveting story. Mara’s unique writing style makes it easy for this magical world of magical races to become a reality. The story is well written and thoroughly enjoyable with a plot full of twists and turns, mystery an intrigue, bounties and evil that will keep you on your toes and unable to put it down.

Meda is Heir to the throne of Galaxies and prophesied as the savior to the galaxy. Perseus is a Mercenary hired into the role of Protector. What he doesn’t realise is that this job would be his toughest assignment to date, in more ways than one. Can Meda stay out of trouble? Will Perseus be able to save her?

Overall, this is a brilliant read and I am anxiously awaiting the next book to see what happens to Meda and Persius.

Coastal Spirit: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise Book 3) by Lindsay Marie Miller – Review by Jenni Bishop

Coastal Spirit: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise, #3)Coastal Spirit: An Action Adventure Romance by Lindsay Marie Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Coastal Spirit: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise Book 3) by Lindsay Marie Miller is the last in this series and an enjoyable ​read but you definitely have to read the other two books to ensure you get a better understanding of what is happening. Lindsay writes so you can envision the characters and what is happening around them. There are lots of twists and turns and is a suspense, romantic historical story that keeps you in your toes in this fast paced story. Who doesn’t like a story that is full of love and joy, passion and hatred, suspense and loads of mystery.

Truth (Alex Conner Chronicles, #2) by Parker Sinclair – Review by Jenni Bishop

Truth (Alex Conner Chronicles, #2)Truth by Parker Sinclair
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Truth, Alex Conner Chronicles by Parker Sinclair is the second book in series and a fab continuation from the first book, where Alex and her fight continues. This series crosses a mixture of genres such as, urban fantasy and fantasy, magic and romance. This book is action packed from the word go and Parker’s storyline will keep you pumped as we watch our sassy and strong heroine kick some butt whilst coming face to face with demons and Fae and magic users of all kinds. But who can she really trust? Are her feelings truly hers or is there something else at play? This book ends on a huge cliffhanger that makes you cry out in frustration as you wait for the next book. If you are looking for an urban fantasy, fantasy and magical read, then this is the series.

Must Love Fashion (Darling Cove #1)Must Love Fashion by Deborah Garland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Must Love Fashion by Deborah Garland is the first book in the Darling Cove series and is such a heartfelt and engrossing story, that follows two people who work at a top fashion industry and where the journey of finding love is not as easy as it should be. I greatly enjoyed this story and Deborah’s writing style, where the character’s are strong and the steamy romance is not always smooth sailing but has complexities with twists and turns. But oh what a story! I was unable to put this book down as I had to know what was coming and where things were going with this couple, Andrew who is still grieving and Gwendolyn moving on from a failed marriage. The relationship between the two is explosive and tumultuous in and out of the bedroom and add that to their daily lives in the fashion world and sparks fly!

This story is full of love and laughter, heartache and loss but is not a story that should be missed. I can’t wait to see what Deborah has in store for us next.

Refuse to Lose: A Coach’s love Book 1 by Alison Mello – Review by Heather Bass

Refuse to Lose: A Coach's Love 1Refuse to Lose: A Coach’s Love 1 by Alison Mello
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read from this author and she blew me away. I love a good sport romance but this talented author exceeded all my expectations. This is the first book to A Coach Love series. I was drawn to these characters right from the start. I devoured this amazing book in day and a half.

Trystan was in pro-baseball until he decided he wanted to help out his country. He went across seas and came home injured. His injuries shattered his dreams to ever play pro- baseball again. Trystan goes back home and he starts to work for a construction company. He loves his new job and he also makes new friends. Trystan goes out one night and makes a very bad decision that gets him into trouble with the law. He is very lucky because the judge gives him a chance to redeem himself. Trystan is told that he has to coach the towns little league team. He is all about doing his time and move on but little does he know his life is going to change. Trystan meets a beautiful single mom Stella and he can’t stop thinking about her. Stella is the mother of DJ one of his baseball players. She was not wanting to give his the time of day at first. They then start to talk and get to know each other. He quickly realizes that he is falling for this woman but is she feeling the same way? Will Trystan lose the best thing that has happened to him or will he refuse to lose and fight for what he wants?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, healing, struggles, and forgiveness. You will fall in love with these characters right from the beginning. Trystan is the hot bachelor of this town. He looks like he can be arrogant but he has a heart of gold. The way he treats Stella and her son will make you swoon. Stella is a beautiful mom that will do anything for her son. She went through a horrible tragedy that makes her more stronger. These characters have some steamy scenes that will make your toes curl. This book talks about some real life problems that is going on in this world. I absolutely loved the ending it will make you cry. I can’t wait to see what this amazing author will write next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Siren Call (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 3) by Phoebe Alexander

5 Stars

In my opinion it says a lot about an author when she has a series out that deals with something I don’t understand or want to understand as far as the swinger lifestyle yet I find myself not being able to wait for each book in that series. I love the people in this series and their stories, but what I love the most is this author’s way of telling these stories.

I don’t read f/f, yet I loved this book. I connected with Jessie immediately and loved everything about her. It took me a bit longer to connect with Sirena, I just had trouble trusting her and it took hearing her complete story to totally understand her. I loved checking back in with all of the characters from the first 2 books and now can not wait for Casey’s story.

I only picked this book because of the author as she has become a definite favorite of mine and I highly recommend anyone that hasn’t read her books to pick one and read it and I just know you will love her as much as I do.
