Spicetopia Boxed Set (Books 1-4) by Phoebe Alexander
4 Stars!!!!

If you are looking for a very hot and steamy series to read well look no further. This series is my favorite. The author does such a great job of keeping the reader hooked. I like how all the characters are down to earth and I also like the whole concept around the adult theme park. I think that the author has a very unique idea and quite a brilliant way of bringing it to the reader.

The characters just jump right off the page and grab the reader into the book and you feel as though you are right there in the heat of all the action. I really like the way that the stories unfold and how each one is a continence of the prior. These are the perfect winter warmer or chill on the beach read. From the first book to the fourth you are just hooked and don’t want to put the books down.

From Book one Sugar and Spice that introduces us to Cy and Jolie and shows us the very start.The author does a great job of bringing the reader into the spice world with a sweet boss and employee romance. Then the author really starts to turn up the heat.

In Book two Virtue & Vice we are introduced to Moon and Katja who bring the spice into Spicetopia. The author begins to weave the story. The story unfolds and we get to know both couples a bit more. I like how the story really begins to heat up and the whole adult theme park starts to come to life.

In Book three Fire & Ice we are introduced to Neve and Enya. The park is beginning to come into shape and there is someone who wants to make it fail. I like how all the couples are coming into play and parts of their pasts are what really throw up the drama. I really like how all is not cut and dry and there is hot molten lava in the relationships. I also like how the books are not predictable.
I like how the author weaves the story from book to book and keeps the readers attentions.

And Finally in book four Naughty & Nice we meet Micah and Natalie. I really like the holiday theme to this book and once again the temperatures are heating up. The author really brings the hot and steamy into the story and the characters just really bring the temperature to beyond boiling point. I could definitely get the naughty and nice vibe from the book and the book just really added to the series.

I really enjoyed this series and I look forward to reading more from this author as well as this series. The books just keep getting hotter and hotter. There is a vey adult theme to them but man I just could not put them down.

Tidal Love by K.M. Lowe
4 Stars!!!!

I just love a sweet little romance that is hidden within a sort of second chance at love storyline. This book was just the best short read for me so far. I love how the author draws the history for the characters. I also like how the main female lead is from a very complex past relationship. This book really highlights that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I really could relate to Harleigh. There were quite a bit more to her situation but her character really is a good example for all who suffer from domestic violence. I like how that author outlined her past so that the reader could really appreciate where she was coming from. I also like how Giovani isn’t really that cut and dry either. I like how both characters are complex and they really compliment one another. I was just so glued to the book I could not put it down. I will definitely read more from this author in the future.

It Comes From Within (House Valdis Book 2) by Naomi Valkyrie
4 Stars!!!!

Another adventure into the House of Valdis world and I was not let down. I really like the whole story line and the refreshing take on the supernatural. The characters just seem to come to life as you follow the story and drama. I like how the author has a unique and refreshing take on this. There are so many books now a days that are too close to another that I really find
it refreshing to have a story line and plot that is unique and original.

I really find the characters have a very unique bond that they have formed and the group just really outlines a great base for the book. I thought that the drama really was well laid out and that the basis of the story really draw the reader in. I really like how the author is able to draw upon the Xenobia’s past and show how it has shaped her to what she has become and also the way that she has to show she is not like the old Master and has to come into her own. I really look forward to reading more into this series and see how things unfold.

Once again I am delving into the world of the Satan’s Devils MC in a new location of Utah. I must say that I was not disappointed and was absolutely hooked.

The chemistry between Road and Swift is really great. The drama is entwined with the romance and the whole book just flows from cover to cover. I like how the author is able to draw out the story and there is intense moments and that really adds to the whole drama that plays out during the book.

Oh man I was once again drawn into the supernatural New Orleans life and loving it. These are such light hearten and just an absolute joy to read. They really are a great short read and have a good balance of romance and a bit of drama. Nothing is ever straightforward and I love that.

I really like how Jasmine and Asher have that typical complicated start. I love that they are destined but he really tries to fight that. I like how the author is able to entwine the story line around these two and it isn’t predictable. I will definitely be reading more from this author and this series. I am totally hooked.

Composed: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 8) by Meghan O’flynn
4 Stars!!!!

Yet again I was brought into the world of Petrosky and the evil that resides in it. I was once again right along side him as he not only investigates the crime but also battles his own demons along the way. I was not disappointed. Although I do have to admit this is not one of my go to genres but I was definitely hooked and each book just gets better and better.

Petrosky has a lot of inner demons he is battling and I like how this helps to form his character but doesn’t distract from the main story. The author has quite a unique style and if you are into serious crime and thrillers then this is definitely the book and series for you. I will definitely be reading more from this author in future.

Finding Ruth: A Daughter’s Quest to Discover Her Mother’s Past by Cynthia Hamilton
4 Stars!!!!

I really found that I went through a roller coaster of emotions reading this book. I think that the author did a wonderful job of dealing with a very sensitive subject. There are many families out in the world that I am sure are dealing with different stages of this very scenario.

I found that I really got grabbed by this book and although not in my regular favourite genre really enjoyed it. The emotions that it brings to the surface really tug at your heartstrings. Alzheimers is a very viscous disease and this book really portrays how difficult and uncertain things can be when dealing with a relative with this illness. I like how the author was able to navigate the twists and turns that can be dealt with. I would definitely read more from this author in the future.
