Something About Aimee (Girls from the Street Book 1) by S.E. Smith – Review by Shannon Fowler

Something About Aimee (Girls from the Street Book 1)Something About Aimee by S.E. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh My! How can this be the first time I have read a book by this author?!?! Could I have chosen a better book to start off with!? Oh, how fun this story was to read! Aimee is the coolest chick ever! She certainly doesn’t need anyone. Living the way she chooses, even if it isn’t the safest of neighborhoods. She has her friends and her skateboard, which I am surprised she hasn’t named.

When Aimee runs into Qadir things take a different turn.

“How many others were like Aimee; vibrant and capable, but just one unlucky moment away from complete disaster?” – Hits a little personal. So many people are just one unlucky moment, one car break down, one sickness, one unlucky moment away from complete disaster. Is there something Qadir can do to help, to encourage, to teach…

Aimee and Qadir have an instant attraction but neither one wants to believe it. I really love this story and can’t wait to see what else happens to these characters and their friends/family!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is some good paranormal writing. It’s hard to come by sometimes. Getting into many different genres lately, paranormal has been at the top of the list.
If you want a romance, the spooky feels and a lot of tension between a couple. This story is right up the ally for you.
This story is about Luci inheriting a house from her aunt with some character if you will. The house captivates Luci with its mysterious ways and that drives a wedge between her and her fiancée.
What happens to them? Will the house take over or do they have a chance?? You will have to read to find out!

Swallowed by a Secret by Risa Nyma – Review by Allyson Ware

Swallowed by a SecretSwallowed by a Secret by Risa Nyman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Twelve year old Rocky and his mom move in with his grandpa after his father passed away. Ironically enough, it’s not his dad’s passing that bothers him the most. He can still talk to his dad, but he wants to know why a perfectly healthy person’s heart just stops working. That just doesn’t make sense to Rocky and it doesn’t sit right with him. So, he gets Olive to help him figure out the big secret he believes his mom is hiding.

As an adult reading this book, having gone through the struggles of loved ones passing, I can say with absolute certainty that it would help bring someone comfort in hard times. I know it would have for me. It’s a novel I would recommend to anyone: big, small, old, young.

SPOOKED BY A SUSPICION by Risa Nyman – Review by Felicia Bates

Spooked by a SuspicionSpooked by a Suspicion by Risa Nyman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Spooked by a Suspicion is the second book I’ve read by Risa Nyman and the second time
I’ve met the main character, Rocky. This is a sequel to Swallowed by a Secret but would read well without reading anything prior. While written to be aimed towards a younger audience, Spooked by a Suspicion reeled me in. I enjoyed the storytelling from Rocky’s perspective and I felt like I was in the shoes of the young teen boy. I haven’t dealt with my parents moving on but Risa Nyman created a character in Rocky that was very relatable. I could really see this story appealing to teens. The storyline flowed well from beginning to end with imagery that
made me feel like I was sitting amongst close friends more than once. I would
give Spooked by a Suspicion 4 stars and greatly look forward to more from this author.

Forbidden Mate (The Shadow Chronicles Book 2) by CR Robertson – Review by Beth McKitrick

Forbidden MateForbidden Mate by C.R. Robertson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was the second in The Shadow Chronicles series – if you haven’t read the first, I would highly recommend reading it before this one. The author does an excellent job expanding on the story and characters from the first book! Though this book did not exactly follow the storyline from the first book that I expected, I still greatly enjoyed the plot. I also like how it touched on the storyline that I originally expected it to follow, clearly leaving that open for the next installment! The main characters Levi and Tasha were just as enjoyable as they were in the first book, with additional satisfying developments to the antagonists of both this book and the overall series, as well as some of the lesser side characters. If you loved the first book, you’ll love this one for all the same reasons, including but not limited to the endearing characters, the fast-pace, and the steamy romance! I can’t wait to read the third installment in this series and see where it goes!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the first book in The Shadow Chronicles series! I like how there was a lot of character development for the main characters, despite being the first book in the series. The author does a great job of making you fall in love with Levi and Tasha, and I thought this take on lycans and vampires was interesting and unique from other similar series. I also love how the author made you think you would have to wait a long time for certain resolutions, but brought them sooner than expected. It made for a nice buildup of certain story elements without the wait getting too frustrating! Overall, it was a face-paced, action-packed book with plenty of story-telling, character-building, and steamy romance! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys young-adult style fantasy books!

Code Name: Vulture (The Order of the Condor Series Book 1) by Maya Daniels and Sylvia Black – Review by Jessica Phillips

Code Name: Vulture: Dark Vampire Romance (The Order of the Condor Series Book 1)Code Name: Vulture: Dark Vampire Romance by Maya Daniels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Code Name: Vulture is a Dark Vampire Romance by Maya Daniels & Sylvia Black. This is my first book by Maya and Sylvia but I really enjoyed it.

Danielle is a curator of a museum looking forward to getting her hands on an ancient artifact. But little does she know, she’s not the only one who wants this artifact.
Vulture is a purebred vampire. He has a job to do, and that job is Danielle. He takes a contract to take her, but boy oh boy, he didn’t expect her to be so head strong.

I would personally recommend you check trigger warnings before picking this one up. But if you enjoy Dark Vampire Romances – you’re gonna want to give this one a shot!

BOY RELEASED (BOY SERIES BOOK 2) by JD Spero – Review by Faith Jackson

Boy ReleasedBoy Released by J.D. Spero
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We’re still with Tyler in this third installment of a series I’ve grown to love. As an advocate for mental illness in real life (outside of being a reader), I was heartbroken at how they stigmatized Tyler. My heart also goes out to Hen as he’s dealing with a lot on his own as well: This book is what I call refreshingly honest. From that perspective, I dove right in and was gripped with all of this story and never looked back. I love this book so much I keep re-reading. Pick it up and enjoy!
