The Fighter (An Underground Bad Boys Romance Book 3) by India Kells – Review by Christina Gran

The Fighter (An Underground Bad Boys Romance, #3)The Fighter by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Perfect mix of sizzling sex, enthralling characters, and edge of your seat suspense, which kept me wanting more! SUCH a fan of India Kells and the Underground Bad Boys Romance series! Ms. Kells definitely saved the best book for last!

After being swept into steamy love triangles within the last few months, where he ended up being the odd man out, Jonathan Gage has decided to swear off sex for the immediate future and concentrate more on re-establishing his career as a successful cage fighter. Under the tough as nails exterior, Jonathan Gage has a heart as big as his body! Always quick to help someone in need, especially beautiful & intriguing men & women, Gage finds himself opening his home to a down on their luck, presumed couple that he had met at his last fight. Feeling responsible for offering the inexperienced fighter some advice that backfires, Gage invites fighter Ten and his best friend Juliet to stay at his home for awhile until they can get back on their feet. The first night at the house while Gage is in the shower, Ten comes to the bathroom to speak with him and realizes that while he is attracted to Juliet, he is also attracted Gage. Juliet faces a similar fate, as the first night there she finds herself in Gage’s bed. The sexual chemistry between the three of them is off the charts. While Gage and his house guests are living out their sexual fantasies and attempting to sort out their feelings for one another , an enemy is busy plotting his revenge against the trio.

Could not turn the pages fast enough! Quick & engaging read that I finished in just a few hours, rooting for Gage to find his happily ever after!

Blood & Ravens (The Casket Girls Series Book 1) by A.D. Brazeau – Review by Christen Ware

Blood & Ravens: A dark, paranormal romance (The Casket Girls Book 1)Blood & Ravens: A dark, paranormal romance by A.D. Brazeau
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4/5 stars
Blood and Ravens by A.D. Brazeau

The start of the Casket Girls Series submerges you into a realm where the supernatural lurks just beneath the surface, ready to pounce at any moment. Greer, the steadfast and strong-willed woman of the hour, finds herself in the midst of an unraveled life that continues to be further unwound by secrets, a dark-haired knight, and far more than just a few twists and turns. She and the other “casket girls” have to find their way in a new land, deal with a forced marriage, and learn to survive even when some seem to be dying. Fueled by rage and confusion, Greer finds herself deeper than she thinks and ends up in the midst of something much larger than she could’ve ever imagined.

When her dark knight no longer seems so knightly, Greer presses harder into the secrets of the world. She uncovers the mystery that is Theron, her dark-haired and even darker-eyed love interest that has the possibility to lead her into the same exile and damnation that he has riddled himself with. When the tension begins to build, both between Greer and Theron and between the normal and supernatural world, the pair must fight through hellish demons that rival the nightmares of the Earth. The stubborn and feisty-natured group of females that had once been shivering and timid as they were torn from their homes wreak havoc on the supernatural. The reader is left rooting for the morally gray villain, and a love story that didn’t begin as one.

Just when you think that another turn isn’t possible, you get thrown into a different direction, following at the heels of the fated pair. Their draw to one another is of pure intoxication, and it is all the reader can do to stay on their heels as they uncover more and more of a dark past. Demons, vampires, and even facing hell itself tries to tear apart the lovely duo, but bonds forged in blood are scarcely broken. Greer’s life will never be the same, and the world is in wake of the to be told stories of the other casket girls. The words flew over the pages for this read, and it is safe to say that the next book is awaited in hungry anticipation.

Hush, My Darling (Benoit and Dayne Mystery Book 2) by Winter Austin – Review by Kerry Carr

Hush, My Darling (Benoit and Dayne Mystery, #2)Hush, My Darling by Winter Austin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. It is the second book in this series. I haven’t read the first book but it didn’t take anything away from this story. The author does an amazing job of providing the information from the previous book as and when the reader needs it. The authors writing is so good that it keeps you guessing all the way through. The story was full of twists and turns which i loved and kept me gripped. The characters were well developed and are really supportive of Lila helping her to face her past and her fears.

Lila has had a traumatic past when she was attacked and almost killed by a serial killer. After she recovers she moves to a little place to restart her life. However the killer isn’t through with her and when a body turns up Lila is now scared for her life.

Can they capture the killer before he strikes at her again? What will happen when her past intrudes on her present? And will she be strong enough to face her demons or will she run away?

Until There Was You by G. Colgrove

This was my first book ever reading by the author it was full of passion, humor, and drama packed. Don’t be like me and start this book right before bed because you will be up all night reading.

It starts off with a young lady named Regan who was born and raised in the south and working at diner, trying to make a better future for herself as she is not from the best family, having to struggle growing up she wanted something better in life.

She meets Jeremy at the diner she worked at, he was having dinner with some other guys and ended up leaving a less than desirable tip and Jeremy overhears her snide comment.

Regan has a hard time opening up to him, she doesn’t want him to find out about her past and family. Jeremy comes from a more weathly family and hasn’t ever had to deal with the struggles Regan has.

Once their worlds collide they realize they are not so different after all.

The Seal of Solomon – Lilandra’s Reeves Adventure (Supernatural Intelligence Agency: World Book 2) by Nadine Travers – Review by Angela Hayes

The Seal of Solomon: A Lilandra Reeves Adventure (Supernatural Intelligence Agency: World Book 2)The Seal of Solomon: A Lilandra Reeves Adventure by Nadine Travers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3 ½ Stars

The Seal of Solomon: A Lilandra Reeves Adventure (Supernatural Intelligence Agency: World, Book 2)) is by Nadine Travers. After reading Blood Rebellion (Book One), as well as getting a snippet for this book at the end of that story, I was really anticipating reading this book.
Let me start by saying that I absolutely love the cover- even if I hadn’t read Book One, I would have snapped up this story just on that cover alone.
As with the previous book- this is an urban fantasy- with supernatural elements, action, adventure, suspense, drama, danger, intrigue, and mystery. It is fast paced short story, which makes for quick and easy reading. Like book one, I really wish this book had been longer- as I would have loved to have been able to immerse myself in the story more. This is a super quick and easy read- but I felt the story may have had more of an impact if it had been able to fully ‘develop’ with more length to the plot.
I did enjoy this story, and feel it is the pick of the series, so far.
Looking forward to reading Juniper’s stories!

Thank you, Nadine Travers.

Sweet Salvation (The Protectors Series Book 3) by Toya Richardson – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Sweet Salvation (The Protectors, #3)Sweet Salvation by Toya Richardson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sweet Salvation by Toya Richardson
Four Stars

Sweet Salvation is the third book in The Protectors Series by Toya Richardson. This is my first book by Toya Richardson so I didn’t know if I would understand some parts, since I was jumping in to book three in the series. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it and had no problems understanding the storyline. However, the book was so well written I will be going back to read the first two books. This Shifter Romance had me hooked from the very first page and I read it in one sitting. It is full of action, suspense and romance. I have found over the past three or four months that I Love Shifter books and have been reading more and more of them. Manuela and Josh are strong characters that are relatable. I highly recommend this book, especially if you are a fan of paranormal romance. I look forward to going back and reading the first two books in the series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series, to date, has proven to be a must read for all fantasy lovers. This latest installment does not disappoint. I love the juxtaposition of the world of Fae with mythology troves. Broadwell does a fantastic job weaving this story line and further developing Kat and her relationship with Bran. I was spellbound from beginning to end and cannot wait to read this book again. Just wonderful.
