Sugar & Spice (Spicetopia #1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Carrie Reed

Sugar & Spice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book was so sweet and also very spicy at the same time. The story line was perfect and the characters are very well written.

Cy and Jolie’s relationship happens pretty quickly, but I do think that Cy falls in love pretty hard and realizes the way he had been living his life until this point needed to change. Jolie is a strong, independent, beautiful, hard working and devoted mother. The fact that she is doing everything she can to make sure her kids have a good life and her youngest son has the medical help he needs is admirable. Jolie being the amazing person she is, rubs off on Cy, which causes the turn around in his outlook.

Cy’s family is a real piece of work! His father, mother and two brothers are extremely greedy, and the way they view the world and what the world owes to them had my mouth hanging open! Their characters were a great added element to this story.

I would highly recommend this book to any romance lover, the story is touching, beautiful and sexy. I can’t wait to see what becomes of Cy and Jolie in the next book!

Battling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother Romance by T. Christensen – Review by Carrie Reed

Battling Beckett By T. Christensen
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars!

This is such a wonderful book. The story line is great, and really pulled at my heart many times. The characters were very nicely written as well.

Beckett, of course I think is a real piece of work, and I dislike him through most of the beginning of the book. Greer, I immediately love her. She is strong and independent and is good at sticking up for herself.

When all of the gossip and trouble follow her around, Greer will let it roll off and try to ignore it the best she can, and that feat in itself is amazing enough, I know I couldn’t. When her and Beckett start to get close, I did become more excited for their relationship, but it seemed there were just a lot of misunderstandings on her part, and I can understand why and sympathized with her. When she is traumatized by something that happens at her school dance it may change her relationships for good.

The secondary characters such as Beckett’s dad David and Greer’s mom Vivian, as well as her best friend Lexi and new friend Pepper are an excellent addition to the story. I would really enjoy seeing a book on Pepper and Mark’s relationship and Lexi and Jason’s relationship. I would highly recommend this book, I had literal tears, anger, sadness, and joy many times throughout the book and it is well worth the read.

Not Fade Away: Interstellar Rescue Series Book 4 by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

This is the 4th book in the Interstellar Rescue Series. Again, and again the books in this series keep getting better and better to me. This story is full of romance, action, suspense and danger, which all nicely fit together to make for a wonderful book.

Charlie is a compassionate and loving woman with a rough history in the love department. She is assigned to a man called Del with dementia, when she meets his son Rafe. She falls in love at first sight but will continuously push him away.

Rafe is a Interstellar Rescue agent and he brings his father to earth to get care as, they are being targeted by assassins. Rafe also falls in love with Charlie at first sight but, wants to stay away in order to protect their secrets. Charlie starts digging a little too deep into their lives and soon discovers what they have been hiding. When danger reaches them it is up to Rafe to protect his father and the woman he loves.

I am fully invested at this point with this series. Each book sucks me into the story every time. Each book can be read as a standalone but I would recommend the full series.

Rebel Jewel (The Jewel Chronicles Book 3) by Natalina Reis
My rating 5 out of 5 stars

This is the 3rd book in The Jewel Chronicles series. I would recommend reading the first 2 books in the series first as it will give you all the details and information on characters that you need. It is totally worth reading all 3 books!!

In this installment we see Milenda with her husband Jaali readying themselves for a revolution. All they both wanted was to live a simple peaceful life, but duty calls and Milenda has to save her people.

Both Milenda and Jaali have been through a lot, and I wanted them to be able to relax as well. Milenda is an amazing and strong woman and it’s beautiful to watch her grow throughout the series. The fantasy land of Natale will really pull you in. It felt as though I was there myself observing and that is what I love the most in a book.

I would highly recommend this series and I cant stress enough that the best option is to read all 3 books!

Truck Stopped: Satan’s Devils MC #11 by Manda Mellett
My rating 5 out of 5 stars

This is a wonderful final book to the Satan’s Devils MC series. I did not have the pleasure of reading the rest of the series but, I am 100% sure I will be going to read the rest of the series. The characters we meet in this book, have me super interested to read their stories. THis book can be read as a stand-alone but like I just mentioned it was so good that I would recommend reading the whole series.

Allie is a strong woman, the way she handles everything that life throws at her is amazing. Being a sweet butt she falls in love with then prospect, Truck. When Truck goes through a pretty physically and mentally damaging trauma, Allie takes on the roll of trying to be the one to pull him back to the club. The things he says to Allie throughout really hurt my heart but their romance ends up beautiful.

Truck, after his trauma, wants nothing to do with his old MC and doesn’t want to be around anybody. When Allie shows up he assumes it is just his President’s way of giving him some booty and hoping he will come back…. It works. He realizes he has stronger feelings for Allie than he originally thought.

When Allie is plagued with a life threatening condition, Truck becomes angry all the time and feels helpless to do anything for her. When they are separated from each other for a year my heart couldn’t handle it anymore and thought the worse would happen to them and their fresh relationship.

Again, this book is amazing, and I could go on and on about it but will just leave you with… READ IT!

Fools Rush In: Interstellar Rescue Series Book 3 by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

This is the 3rd book in the Interstellar Rescue Series. Another wonderful book by Donna S. Frelick. Like the first 2 books in the series, the 3rd one does a great job of pulling you right in from the start.

In this story we meet Rayna who is part of the Interstellar Rescue Service and she is on a mission to save slaves from slave ships. She runs into Sam, a space pirate that captures the slave ship she is undercover on and, gets him to work with her on her mission.

Rayna is a strong and independent woman, and I really enjoyed reading her character and seeing how she faced all the challenges she was put up against. The romance between her and Sam was very nice, and I really enjoyed them as a couple. The other aspect I found made the story more intriguing was the fact that the story for the most part took place on spaceships.

I would definitely recommend this series to any romantic sci-fi lover. It can be read a standalone, but the series is excellent so far when read in order.

Trouble in Mind (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 2) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Carrie Reed

Trouble in Mind (Interstellar Rescue, #2)Trouble in Mind by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Trouble In Mind: Interstellar Rescue Series Book 2 by Donna S. Frelick My rating 4 out of 5 stars This book is the 2nd in the Interstellar series, and same as before, alien abductions are real. The characters are very well written, and the story line is great. This book is a wonderful romantic sci-fi with a nice amount of action and suspense. In this book we meet FBI agent Alana and she is in the process of discovering all details of a mother and son that were abducted. Joining in on the case is private investigator Gabriel. Now Gabriel knows more about this case than Alana and tries to keep as much as he can from her in the beginning. He knows this case is otherworldly. Alana soon realizes there is more to the real world than meets the eye, a world that most believe is just make believe. There is some good romance and some very intense scenes. Everything comes together in this book to make it an excellent second read in the series, although I do believe it could be read as a standalone. I can’t wait to see what else is in store with this series.

Legacy of Luck (The Druid’s Brooch Series Book 3) by Christy Nicholas – Review by Carrie Reed

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Legacy of Luck: Druid’s Brooch Series: #3 by Christy Nicholas
My rating 5 out of 5 stars

This is probably the 5th book I have read by Christy Nicholas and like the previous books, this one is nothing short of awesome. Every time I read book from the Druid’s Brooch Series, I instantly get sucked in. This book is filled with romance, adventure, always magical and excellent characters.

I really enjoyed the character of Eamonn. He is the next in line to inherit the brooch and spends his time trying to save a fellow Traveler by the name of Katie from a loveless and unsafe marriage. The twists and turns along the way as well as the secondary characters we meet make this book truly wonderful. I especially love the way Katie’s parents were worked into the book as well as her evil fiancé/husband. Having such nasty characters really gives this book that extra edge, which again is what pulled me right in.

I truly recommend the entire Druid’s Brooch Series. Watching the brooch being passed down to different members of the family, and what obstacles they encounter because of it, is magical.

Guilty Pleasures Volume 3 by Joyce McCarthy
5 out of 5 stars

This is a great short read! This book includes 15 different stories, all perfect and satisfying.

Each story is very interesting to read, and it’s fun to see where Brad ends up next. He meets many different women and each story ends up very steamy and sexy. The chemistry between Brad and the other ladies just works for me.

I would highly recommend this book for a quick read. I’m very impressed how addicted I got and how the authors writing really pulls you in.

Love Me Dreamy by Laura Burton
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book was excellent! The story was great, towards the middle I was starting to get confused but the way it was wrapped up at the end was nice and clear. The characters are wonderfully written and easy to love.

The way this story was written, and the thought and planning that went into it blew my mind. I didn’t pick it up really until the end but was extremely happy with the outcome.
The two main characters of Amelia and Toby meet my chance in England and fall in love with a quickness. Amelia suspects something is going on because of the dreams she continues to have and the men in black she sees following her and Toby around. Toby on the other hand knows what is happening but can’t bring himself to tell Amelia without ruining what they have.

When the men in black finally catch up to the couple it may be too late.

I would HIGHLY recommend reading this book. You will not be disappointed. There is not much in the way of romance, just more loving words and kissing but it is perfect for this story.
