Caged Fire (The Vigilant Book 1) by LM Preston – Review by Carrie Reed

Caged Fire (Vigilant, #1)Caged Fire by L.M. Preston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars!

Wow! What a ride! This story is so much fun. I wasn’t sure where life was going to take EmVee after the first book. I had a feeling her and Kayson would find each other again, I can understand why she is so hesitant to get to close to him after their past and Silas, but by the end of this book I was happy with how far they have come together. I can’t stand Megan, she is cunning and evil the way she treats people to get what she wants. I can’t wait to see where the next book leads, and to read more about EmVee and Kayson, see if anything happens to Megan and find out what happened to EmVee’s family.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am loving this series! I was happy that this book was all about Reece. He irritated me so much chasing after Zamina, and I still am not fully convinced that she was in love with him like she claims, but I understand, he was is in love and can’t help it. I am glad he has a friend in Hook to help him out with his situation, and that he could go to his father’s friend Jeb for help when it all went down with Zamina. I am sad for him and how lost and disgusted he is with hisself for hurting his twin sister. I have read these books out of order, this book could be read as a standalone but it is best to read them in order to get back story on many of the characters that come up. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Insatiable Darkness (The Vigilant Book 0) by LM Preston – Review by Carrie Reed

Insatiable Darkness (Vigilant, #0.5)Insatiable Darkness by L.M. Preston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars!

This book is amazing. I was entranced from the minute I started reading. EmVee and Kayson seemed to have the most chemistry but then there was Silas. Rachel seems like a good friend, and then there is Megan. I don’t think any of these people are what they seem and EmVee is stuck trying to figure out why her family was brought to this town in the first place, what her dad has to do with any of it. The ending of course left me dying for more, I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Princess of Prias by Courtney Davis – Review by Carrie Reed

Princess of PriasPrincess of Prias by Courtney Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars!

Excellent!! This book was amazing. The characters were easy to fall in love with and the way the author describes the different planets and their inhabitants is so detailed, it really brought my imagination to life. I loved reading of L and Locan, and I was hoping the whole time that they would be getting together, they seemed perfect for each other. Leda, she really got on my nerves, but I think she came to like the princess in the end, at least that is what I hope. I wish I could have seen something happen to Sor, but the ending was perfection.

Levi (The Brothers of Creekside Ranch Book 1) by Edith Mackenzie – Review by Carrie Reed

LeviLevi by Edith Mackenzie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars!

I really enjoyed this book. Bella is an all around sweet woman, and the way Levi treats her is just disgusting since he knows nothing about why she has been thrust into his care. He just makes assumptions. On the other hand he is going through some things of his own so I can see why he is distrustful of people and wary. Bella being dropped into the brother’s and Allie’s lives is the best thing that could have happened for all of them and the bond they all form is nice, especially for Bella due to the past she has shared with her ex. Bella is a strong and amazing woman for protected Allie the way she does. I hope to see more of the brothers and see what becomes of Levi’s brothers, Amos and Elijah.

Caring for Kingsley, Believing in a Better Way When Canine Cancer Comes Crashing Into Your World by Alli Eldridge – Review by Carrie Reed

I don’t even know where to start with this book. I absolutely, 100% cried like a baby. Reading of precious Kingsley’s story made me remember and relive the moment leading up to putting my sweet dog down and the moments before her passing. I felt the author’s pain throughout this heartbreaking journey, wondering if you were doing the right thing for your dog, wondering whether they are in pain, how you can help, you go through so many different emotions. Dogs are the most amazing animals, and I hear it said over and over again how we as human don’t deserve animals and it is so true, animals are so pure and beautiful and have so much love to give. I just know Kingsley brought this family so much love and joy throughout his 9 years of life and I am happy to read that he had a beautiful home while he was here on earth. I definitely recommend this book to anyone struggling with the loss of an animal or anyone going through an animal with cancer. Thank you for your story.

Isabella Bride of Ohio: American Mail Order Bride by Debra Parmley – Review by Carrie Reed

Isabella Bride of Ohio: American Mail-Order Brides SeriesIsabella Bride of Ohio: American Mail-Order Brides Series by Debra Parmley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars!

Amazing! It is crazy to think that back in the 1800s a seventeen year old girl could marry a thirty-seven year old ma with no one thinking anything of it. I understand Isabella wanting to find something stable, especially after the loss of her family. Donald seemed really shady to me when they were out shopping, and he was making all of the decisions and quickly without giving any thought to what Isabella would want. I was broken hearted for Isabella on her wedding day, her wedding night, and her life for the next days after marrying Donald. She seems like such a sweet heart and should only be treated with all the love and respect she deserves. I was so happy when she met Tom and had a feeling he would be a big game changer in Isabella’s life. Excellent book, definitely recommend. Short and sweet with lots of emotions.

Castor’s Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars Book 2) by Tai James – Review by Carrie Reed

Castor's Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars # 2)Castor’s Kiss by Tai James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars!

Perfect! Everything about this book was perfect! The elements of romance, action, space, different planets and different creatures all came together nicely. I did not read the first book, and at one point in the beginning I did feel like I was missing some things, but picked up quickly. I will definitely be going back to read it though. I love Castor and I love Mia, and I love both of them together. What Mia has endures in first portion of the book is just awful, nobody should have to withstand any of it. I was hoping someone would come and save her and thus we get Castor. They are soulmates and their journey to escape from Throl is super entertaining and had me on the edge waiting to see what would happen next. I really hope to see a 3rd book to this series to see what becomes of Not and Athena.

Vive la Resistance (Donovan Trait Book 3) by Seelie Kay – Review by Carrie Reed

Vive la ResistanceVive la Resistance by Seelie Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!

I really liked the 3rd installment of this series. The thing that was kind of disappointing was I felt the issue with the Matron from the first book was left unresolved, I kept waiting for something to happen. I did enjoy the final confrontation with the coalition. The old Vampires on the council were sick, and the way they treated half bloods, and the vampire women was just terrible. The ending was awesome, I liked the battle and the look into the future right after the battle, and how all their lives turned out. I do look forward to more books from this author.

Epic! What a great second book to the Donovan Trait series. I am in love with this unknown island with nuns that have the power to shield everyone from their location and information. Sounds like a good solid place to be. I am so happy that Shirley was safe and the babies were safe upon delivery, it is sad to think the vampire coalition lied to all vampires for centuries. Donovan’s family is amazing, rallying around him and Shirley to sand up against the coalition and let them know they are in the wrong. The ending left me dying for more! I can not wait until book three. I also hope to see if anything comes of the matron from the first book that tried to kill Shirley and Donovan. I am so obsessed with this series right now!
