I Dream of Cassie: A Student-Teacher Age-Gap Romance (Kirk University) by Diana Vale – Review by Jenni Bishop

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

The story is a student-teacher romance where age is a factor or is it? This is the companion story to the first book Professor Valentine in the Kirk University series. This story is told from Diego’s POV. I love stories that are told in different POV’s because I feel the story is much rounder and in depth understanding of the characters. This is a very very short novella but getting the male perspective is a good addition to this tale. This is where it all began.
Cassie is off limits but that doesn’t stop him from wanting her. Beautiful doesn’t begin to describe her, but does he really need more in his life with his ex-wife and brother?

Conveniently Yours (Titans Of Manhattan BOOK 1) by Anise Storm – Review by Wendy Wary

Conveniently Yours (Titans Of Manhattan, #1)Conveniently Yours by Anise Storm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

With a Pretty Woman-esque storyline, this book is about the rich and powerful Caspian who will disinherit the business he’s devoted himself to if he doesn’t find a wife and remain married for at least one year. Paisley is a struggling artist with looming medical bills for her mother and couldn’t be farther from the world in which Caspian lives.
Fate brings the two together at a chance encounter at the hospital, where Caspian is visiting his dying uncle and Paisley is visiting her comatose mother. Something in her eyes sparks recognition in Caspian, and they discover they’re not from completely different worlds after all, having befriended one another in childhood. As they catch up over coffee, Caspian decides it could be a mutually beneficial agreement if he can convince Paisley to marry him for the terms described in his uncle’s will.
Between social events with catty women, Caspian’s uncle’s disapproval in his choice for a wife, and some secrets Caspian is holding onto, the whole arrangement becomes fragile and threatens to fall apart.
I found this to be an entertaining read with just enough drama and spice to keep me hooked until the end.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sinful Vow was SUCH a great story!! I am new to the mafia genre but this book had me hooked. Steamy, exciting, & suspenseful it grabs your attention! I could not help but fall in love with Luca. Such intensity! He is loyal to a fault and his own dark version of a white knight. And Ally is a wonderful heroine! She is strong, brave, and driven. When these two clash it is sinfully steamy!!

This book was surprisingly well thought out and a joy to read. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed the authors use of wordplay and description to suck the reader in. As a romance novel goes , this one hit every nail on the head. Bravo!

This is my first delve into the mafia romance genre. What was I waiting for? I’m so grateful that I chose this talented author to take me along for the ride. This book had me hooked from chapter one. I love that we get to grow up with these characters, even briefly. It gives the sense that you can understand how they are the way they are. Life can do that to you, especially living the life they have. This book was exciting, intriguing, sexy, and with a strong male AND female lead. I strongly suggest this book and series!

POWER PLAY (Astoria Bay Thunder Book 1) BY C.J. CARTWRIGHT REVIEWED BY CARLIE DEL GALLO

Power Play (Astoria Bay Thunder #1)Power Play by C.J. Cartwright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is one that you will ABSOLUTELY LOVE! From reading the first chapters that introduced us to Levi and Brynn to the very end of their story I was entranced. Levi and Brynn have a past together and do not recognize each other when they meet on the ice for the first time. Throughout the book, Levi and Brynn are trying to fight the attraction they once had for one another. This amazing book had many twists and turns in their story and the ending is not what I had expected at all! I cannot wait to read many more books in this series and from this author!

Talk about an amazing book I read this book in two nights only because I had work 😂 I wish I could grow up and be Aly and my own Luca. I hate the things Aly went through but she is amazing, strong. Determined even…. And to have her own business like she does is amazing… the characters are thought out in this book and I can’t wait to read more in the series!!!!

Sinful Vow (Dark Mafia Sins, #0.5)Sinful Vow by Emily Bowie

Luca Rossi is Aly Mancini’s family’s biggest rival in the Italian Mafia. But Aly is not really part of that world. Thank god her mother kept her away from that growing up. Even though Luca should stay away from Aly, he can’t seem to follow that rule and is always lurking when she needs him to protect her. Aly is a grown adult and no longer needs protecting, she can do that all on her own. But can she really? When the tension between Rossi and Mancini families starts to deepen, is there anything that could cause them to call a truce?
Murder, blood, fights, loyalty, and true love are some of the components you will find in the pages of this book. Once I picked this book up I could not put it down. I loved the push and pull of Luca and Aly’s relationship. It kept me on the edge of my seat and even tears in my eyes at some points. This is a true Romeo and Juliet story.

Luca and Aly were such a sweet couple. The chemistry and connection they shared could not be ignored, and on Luca’s end would not be denied.

Luca lost his innocence as a young child being neglected and moved foster home to foster home, but being taken in by Rossi family was that light in the dark for him. Luca was immensely loyal, and as the heir to the Rossi family he was also ruthless and cold when needed.
Knowing each other since they were kids there was a great deal of history with Luca and Aly. Luca was always protective and possessive of Aly, and he always knew when she needed him. However Luca being a Rossi and Aly a Mancini they were sworn enemies, and truly a Romeo and Juliet in the making. When Luca takes Aly as his own on her arranged wedding day its a declaration of war for the families. As the story unfolds there are many twists that were not foreseen along with a great deal of drama, romance, and betrayal. This story was a good one, and a great way to start the series. I am eager for what’s next.

This was the firs book I have read from this author. I usually don’t read this type of book, but I thought I would read it because I do enjoy reading mafia books. And this book did not disappoint. It was very well written and kept me interested the whole way thou that I finished it in a day. I was captivated by the story line and the characters in the book that I couldn’t stop reading it. The chemistry between Aly and Luca was intense and even thou they’re families are sworn enemies they still didn’t care and wanted to be together. This book was dark, action-packed, tragic, steamy, on your edge of your seat read. I really hope that there will be more books to this story.
