Fire & Ice ( Spicetopia #3 ) by Phoebe Alexander
4 Stars!!!!

Another trip into the Spicetopia world and yet again I was not disappointed. The author really brings the characters and the story world to life. I found that I as glued to the pages as I couldn’t wait to find out how the book was going to unfold. There is just the right bit of intrigue and drama to balance out the romance.

I really like how Neve and Enya’s story unfolded. There really wasn’t any predictable bit to this book and that is what really makes it great. I like how the author builds up the world around the characters. I really look forward to reading more from this series and author as I cannot wait to see how the actual adult theme park turns out.

Virtue & Vice ( Spicetopia Book 2) by Phoebe Alexander
4 Stars!!!!

I find it quite an experience to read a wide selection of books and also different types in my favorite genre. This book has quite a unique subject matter. I have read quite a few of this author’s books and this was just another great read. I find that the author has quite a refreshing writing style and also is very creative.

I find the dynamic between Moon and Katja to be electric and when you add in Jolie and Cy well wow it just gets explosive. I may not be into the lifestyle but the author really has a way of drawing the reader in and hooking you. Then it is almost impossible to put the book down. This is a very good read and I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

Right back into the thick of it again with Karina. I once again as not disappointed and was glued to the pages. I really like to read out of my favorite genre and this was a good read. I find the author to have a very refreshing style and draws the reader in.

I really like the investigative reporting angle and I like how the drama and the intrigue flow through the book. The characters jump off of the pages and draw the reader in wanting more. I like how the author brings realism to the characters. I also really relate to Karina and I find that the author really brings her to life. I look forward to reading more from this author and this series.

4 Stars!!!!

I was absolutely glued diving back into the shifter world created by C.A. King. This is the second book and I wasn’t disappointed. I really find the author’s style to be quite refreshing and aluring. The characters are very unique and their world is brought to life through the book.

Tails and Brodie have their hands full in this book. I really found that the author balanced the drama in this book and how it continued from the first to be very good. Their lives definitely got a few curves thrown at them in this book. I found that the author created quite the unique world and dealt with issues from the real world was very enlightening. I found the humans treatment of shifters really mirrors present day bias. I cannot wait to read more from this author and this series. I am anxious to see how this story will continue.

Hitting the High Note ( A four Horsemen Novel Book 3) By C.A. King
5 Stars!!!!!

This is the third book in the series and I have been eager to read it. The fight continues and the search for the key aka their mates continues. I really like how the author writes her take on the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The take that they are good is very unique.

This book is Uriel’s story and I really like how the author does not make it obvious and throws in little twists. I really like how the romance is underlying in this story and that there is just enough drama and a bit of mystery thrown in. I like how this story was not so straight forward and had a bit of twist. I really look forward to reading the next and finale book in this series and more from this author.

Evil Sushi by C.A. King
4 Stars!!!!

I stepped out of my comfort genre for this book. I was quite taken with this book. This is a unique story line. I really like what the author has done with this story line. The characters are quite realistic even given the paranormal spin to the book. I found myself at the edge of my seat awaiting to see what would happen next.

I like how the author created the setting. I also like the chemistry between Rod and Sally. I could really relate to the work situation for the fishermen. I was really on edge as the book went on and things took a negative turn for Rod’s discovery. I really cannot wait to read more from this author.

Protecting His Heart (A Lawson Family Novel #2) By Tracey Cramer-Kelly
4 stars!!!!

I have to say that even on paper a man in uniform is hot. This is the second book I have read from this author and I was not disappointed. I really find that the author has a great writing style. The characters just come off of the pages.

I could relate with some of the issues the author has in this book. I really like how she writes the real life issues into the story. I really could relate to Ian about his dad and in some respects I could relate to Rachel. There is such a great chemistry between the two as the book progresses. The author creates just enough drama along with the romance to bring a realism to the book. I really enjoyed reading this book and will read more from this author in the future.

Ailey Of Skye by Wendy Hewlett
4 Stars!!!!

This was another great new author find. I really enjoyed this quaint little romance. The author has a refreshing style. I found that the characters were realistic. I found myself lost in this book as I would love to visit that part of Scotland featured in the book.

Ailey and Alec are such a good couple. I found myself really interested in Ailey’s character as I have known a few people with alcohol addiction. I like how the author balanced the drama in the book with the romance. It kept me glued to the book and at the edge of my seat to see what would happen next. I really liked how the book was not predictable. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

This was such a joy to read. I have to admit I had the song going on in my head as I read it and that inner reading voice was singing the book. The author has such a sweet story here. If my children were younger I would definitely read them this book. It was quite catchy when the author plants the seed about the song association. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone with small children. I am sure it would become one of their bedtime favorites.
