No Way Out: An Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance (Mafia Elite Book 1)
By Amy McKinley

I have loved everything I have read by this author, especially this book. This author never disappoints, this story is full of action, suspense, romance, deceit and so much more. I was pulled into this story from the beginning and I was kept entertained throughout. Max and Liliana had chemistry from the start and you could feel it jumping off the pages. There are a lot of changes coming for some of the Mafia bosses and some of them aren’t going to make it through those changes. This is a must read if you want to find out what happens, who makes it through and what happens between Max and Liliana and other characters as well. There are some great characters in this story. I highly recommend this book.

This is not the first book I have read by this author but it has quickly become one of my favorites. This book drew me in from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. This book took me on a psychological adventure with its twists and turns, suspense, and drama. This story goes back and forth from Poppy’s past and present and comes together seamlessly. This author writes a chilling and original story that kept me turning pages needing to know what happens next. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book.

Raven Woman’s Tavern
By Laura Koerber

I was pulled in this story as soon as I started reading it. This was an interesting and intriguing read. There were times in this story that I felt a little confused but overall it was well written. We get introduced to a few different characters in this book and each of them are living with their own struggles, some just struggling to feed themselves. The author was very descriptive in her words so that I was able to picture life in this dystopian world. I am hoping for another book in which some questions might be answered and we get to go into more depth with some of the characters. I gave this book 4 stars.

Dire’s Club
By Kimberly Packard

I fell in love with this book, the characters and their stories. I became completely enthralled in each of the characters and their triumphs and struggles as they try to find their own peace in dying. I found this book to be original, emotional and engaging. I couldn’t put it down once I dove in. There are some unexpected twists and turns. The author wrote an exceptional story. Although there are a diverse set of characters they are bonded to each other through this experience. I loved this book and it is a must read.

Repair: An Everyday Heroes World Novel (The Everyday Heroes World)

This book grabbed me from the start. I fell in love with the characters and I was rooting for Charlie and Tank throughout this story. The secondary characters were also great. I found this story to be fun, heart warming and heart wrenching and so many more emotions which made it a great read for me. This author never disappoints. I have a soft spot for second chance romances and this one gave me all the feels I enjoy. I can’t wait to read more. I recommend reading this book.

Stripped (The Stripped Series Book 1)
By Stacy-Deanne

This was a good read. There were definitely some interesting characters in this book. There are twists and turns, suspense, romance and more. As I was reading this story I realized that some of these characters were in another book and although I was able to follow this story very easily I wish I would have read the other book these characters were in so I had a better back story. I also wish I knew what happened between Dee and Grayson.This author kept me intrigued and entertained throughout the book. I look forward to reading more books in this series. I’m not sure how I feel about Jonathan and the woman that lives with him so I’m hoping to get to know more in the next book. I’m glad I decided to take a chance on this book.

Dark Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel
By India Kells

This book had me hooked right from the start as does every book I have read by this author. I became so invested I read it in one sitting.This book can be read as a standalone but it is my suggestion that you read these books in order for a better backstory and understanding of Sam’s and his brothers history. This book does contain triggers for some people. Both Sam and Ellie are at the end of their rope, they can’t take anymore mentally or emotionally, they are ready to give up on life. A wrong number changes everything for these two. Sam recognizes the same darkness that’s pulling him under in Ellie’s voice and he feels a very strong need to save her. Ellie has been kidnapped by Sam’s psychopath father and Sam will do whatever it takes to save Ellie and Ellie feels the same way about saving Sam from his father especially after learning of the horrific things his father did to him. This story is full of action, drama, romance, family, healing and more. This is a must read, I highly recommend this book. I can’t wait to read the next one in this series.

Avenging Devil Part 2: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego
By Manda Mellett

Wow!! Another great one. This is part two and picks up right where one left off. This book is full of action, lies, deceit, sadness, love, family, healing and so much more. Niran and Saffie’s story will tear your heart out and then put it back together but it will never be the same after reading their story. Manda Mellett is an amazing author and her books are among my favorites. Every time I think she can’t top herself of course she does. I don’t want to give anything away but this is a must read as are all her books. This book does have triggers and is very emotional. I highly recommend this book.
