WTF God: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah
4 Stars!!!!

This is a new author to me and a very different kind of book. I was really drawn into this book as I got more into it. This is definitely a new type of book for me and I was quite impressed. This book is a Self narrative and dialogue between the author and God. I really found the book to be inspirational.

We all have trials and tribulations but this candid look into the author’s is quite a unique and inspirational tale. I really found this book to be refreshing and a very nice change to read. I will definitely try and read more from this author in the future.

Age of Saints (Druid’s Brooch Series) By Christy Nicholas
4 Stars!!!!

I once again found myself in the world of the druids. This is the seventh book in the series but the second book I have read in this series. Even with that in hand I still thoroughly enjoyed it. The author has such a unique world that has been created that one finds themselves plunged straight in. The setting is just as Christianity is coming into the scene and is starting to take over from Paganism.

I really found that I was routing for Conall from the beginning. The author really has a refreshing style that brings the characters to life. I felt as though I really was in Ireland and that I was there with them. The author’s unique way of writing helped bring the magic to life as well as the characters. I could feel the anguish as Conall strives to keep his promise to keep his sister safe and the sacrifices he makes. I was on bated breath to see the decision he had to make. I cannot wait to read more from this author and catch up on the rest of this series.

Coming Home by Jane Suen
4 Stars!!!!

I have to say that this second book was really quite the follow up. I like the opportunity to see how Connor dealt with the grief of losing his mom. This book also gave us an oppertunity to see into the lives of a few others in the community. The author really did a fine job of tying in all the characters.

I can’t help but feel like this was a window in a way into my own grief that I still feel. I really can relate to Connor. The flash backs really helped to add to the book. I also was very intrigued to learn more about Dottie and her daughter Alana. I was so glad they were able to look past their differences. I like the cliff hanger as to Connor and Mary Ann. The author has a great way of grabbing the reader from the beginning and keeping you glued to the pages wanting more. I look forward to reading more from this author in future.

Tales of the Dragonfly Novel book III Extended Flight By Tamara Ferguson
4 Stars!!!!

I once again have read a series out of order but I wasn’t lost or out of sorts. I found that this book really held my attention and left me wanting more. I found that the author was able to weave intrigue and drama through the whole book with a nice sprinkling of romance.

I really found myself going through all the emotions with Aaron and Kiley as they both not only help one another through the intrigue that brings them together but also through the drama. I really found the author was able to intertwine the two stories quite well and roll out the drama. I couldn’t put this book down and I really do look forward to reading more from this author and starting this series from the beginning and fill in the gaps.

Once again I am reading a series out of order but wow it didn’t make any difference. I really was drawn into this book from the get go. The author has a very unique style and it just grabs the reader. The book is full of drama and action. I really found myself drawn to the characters.

I really found myself going through the emotions with Summer as she deals with her husband Jerry’s drama and tries to figure out the case of the missing books. I really found myself drawn to Summer and routing for things to go well for her. The drama surrounding the books and the way things play out in this book really just had me at the edge of my chair wanting to see what would happen next. I really do look forward to delving more into this series and this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Inheritance ( The Story of an Unlikely Submissive) by India Kells
5 Stars!!!!!

I have to admit that I was drawn into this book and just couldn’t put it down. I really like how the author was able to build the story and I found the characters to be very realistic. The book really tied well with the first book of hers I read. I really like to see the changes in the secondary lead character Max Langdon.

I really was drawn to the chemistry between Lani and Max. I was eager to see how things would progress given his dominance. I also found myself routing for Lani and her art. I really felt myself going through the emotions with Lani as she knew Max had to find his own way. I just couldn’t put the book down and the pages just melted one into the other. I really look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Immortal Desires by Various Authors – Review by Caralee Loonat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Immortal Desires A Collection of Paranormal Romance Novels by Various Artists
5 Stars!!!!!

This is just a sweet little collection of paranormal romances. I like the variety of authors and the variety of paranormal subjects. I found that each book complimented one another and just added the right zest to the collection. Each author has their own unique style and I found this collection to be quite refreshing.

My utmost favorite was Flirty Dancing by Jennifer Theriot. This is the fourth book in her Series and I can I just say I wasn’t disappointed. I really like how the book seems to keep the flow of the series. I really felt the emotions that Kitty was going through. When your time is up your time is up but she definitely was gone too soon. I really like how the author ties different prospects of the afterlife and gives the slight comedy twist as well as keeping the romance in it. I really look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

I really enjoyed the rest of the collection but another absolute favorite was For Haven’s Sake by Nicole
Garcia. I love wolf books and I find that each author brings their own unique flavor to them. This book was no exception. I really ‪like how he ends up helping with wild wolves. I like how the author sets up the story with Jax and how he ends up where he does. I found myself really routing for Haven and couldn’t wait for the secrets to come out. I have to say that I was really glued to the pages to see how it would all turn out with Jax’s and Haven. I found Jax’s character to be very brave to follow what he wanted to do and not just bend to the packs rules and take on being the Alpha. There was just a perfect balance of drama entwined with romance. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

Trouble’s Wedding Caper by Jen Talty
5 Stars!!!!!

Oh man this crazy cat lady was really hooked on this book. The author has a very unique story format and writing style. I really enjoyed the mix of romance and mystery. The whole story just really kept me glued to the book and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next.

I really found the chemistry between Annabel and Ethan to be sweet. The whole sort of crushing on your best friend’s brother really makes this story realistic. I just love the fact that Trouble plays a big part in this book. A detective cat just adds such a cuteness to the book. I found that the author had a real unique way of bringing in the mystery around the story and characters. I like the idea of the cat helping bring the couple together and helping solve the case. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

Rebel Heart By Clara Winter
5 Stars!!!!!

I was very excited to read this second book in the Immortal Kindred series and I can say that I wasn’t
disappointed. I found that this book was a very good follow up to the first. I really found that the author’s
writing style really keeps the reader glued to the pages and eager to see what will happen next.

I really loved the chance to get to know Annie better. I found that the backstory really helped put a few pieces in place and was just the right fit to the first. I loved getting to know Annie and how she came to be who she was and how she came to become part of the family with Millie and Alexandre. The best part was getting to see how Thayer and Annie found one another and how they were meant to be. I found it really interesting to get to know Thayer as well with part of his past. I really was quite intrigued by the sort of cliffhanger ending and look forward to the third book in this series.

Stepping it Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series book two) By Bea Stevens
4 STars!!!!

I just found myself getting lost in this book. I couldn’t put it down. I found the author’s writing style to be quite addictive. I really found the characters to be realistic and relatable. I really found myself routing for Libby. I really enjoyed how the author was able to entwine enough drama and just a hint of romance to keep you glued to the pages.

I like how Libby is down to earth and how her character feels real. The drama that unfolds in the book just adds to it and keeps the reader interested. I also like how Libby and James have their ups and downs and how they really pull out of them and seem to grow stronger. I was a bit anxious when it came to James’ ex but it seems that even that drama couldn’t bring them down. I will definitely be reading more from this author and hopefully this series.
