To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles, #2)To be a Fae Guardian by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the book I have been waiting for in 2022!
Fantasy on another level.
The second book to this series and it is everything.
When I tell you the world building is top notch,
And to think that we have a female lead that has yet to disappoint.
This author puts you into the world that she has created by sucking you in from the very first page.
Will the darkness take over the Queen?
Her crimes can they be true?
Everything that we don’t think of that happens when a female is put in a powerful situation happens to Tatiana in this tale of fantasy that brings loss, sorrow pain and empowerment.
You will not put this down.
Even with five stars it’s underrated.
How much is being queen worth?
So excited that I read this cause now I can read it again.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Omg yay!
This was so beautiful.
I haven’t finished crying yet.
This author has a way of inspiring people through her live stories.
The way that Becky and Johnny have gone on this journey of love and adventure the ups and downs I feel like the ultimate third wheel.
I love that this story didn’t feel like the third of a series and that I was reading a new story.
The trials of success and motherhood really hit home.
I would read this book again and again.
Loved this book and the book before.
This author made me feel at home following this adventure.
Wish there was more.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is a very easy light romance that had a few quick twists that fit the story well.
This was the first book I read from this author and I will be looking out for more.
The author made this story very inspiring and realistic.
Becky and Johnny are the journey of this story.
I was surprised that I liked this book because the setting was different from what I usually enjoy.
This is the type of book you read to feel good, refreshing is the best word to describe it.
I am looking forward to book three.
This story made me cry in a few spots it had me day dreaming in between truly living through the pages.
Love and country music officially go together.

Whisper Creek (A Logan McKenna Mystery Book 7)Whisper Creek by Valerie Davisson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was amazing!
Yes it is far into a series but I didn’t feel that it effected my understanding of the plot and characters.
I have really become addicted to female leads and this author is spot on in drawing you into the suspense.
I had no idea how this was going to go.
I love talent shows but now I am iffy.
Finding a dead body is where the author got me.
This is mystery and suspense hyped up too 1000%
When I tell you this had me so entertained I feel like a detective now.
I became part of this world in Oregon I cried and laughed and lost a few breathes.
I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Unchained Memory (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 1) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Corine Lombardi-Quiles

Unchained Memory (Interstellar Rescue, #1)Unchained Memory by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So let me tell you how book five makes way more sense now.
This is an amazing series I need to read them all.
This author is so dynamic I could not imagine everyone not reading this.
If you love SCI-FI this is for you 100%.
The romance and adventure its so dramatic that it seriously sucks you in.
This author is masterful at world building.
Read all of the books in order and you will not regret it.
Don’t give up on this, there comes a point that the story lines all jumble wand chaos breaks out within the plot because it is so complex.
I am guessing this entire series is just an add on of the story before.
It is everything. I wish I read them in order.
Five stars. Worth every word.

King of Pain (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 5)King of Pain by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very complex read that I enjoyed.
This story is told from many point of views and that makes it dynamic and deep.
The lies and romance gives an atmosphere of addiction.
As the story goes on it gets better and better.
This is book five of this series and I am a little disappointed because you obviously have to read the books in order.
This author is great at creating worlds.
I was interested because of the cover art but the story is worth it.
With a female and male protagonist this story is well versed in character development and full of suspense.
Creative and balanced that brings this world to life even though I did not read the rest of the series.

There are morals to this story that had me hooked.
By the end I did not know how to feel and I love it
So many different adventures go on in this story and I am telling you I may be addicted.
There is a book two and I cant wait.
Love the characters and the worlds that are created it is so creative and defined.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a refreshing read.
It gave you the ok into the life of a widow and I related to her as a mother and wife trying to find peace.
I loved the focus of history that the novel takes.
Anything war wins my vote and this really becomes a story of finding your truth and peace.
It is light and enjoyable with facts thrown in any just the right times to keep you hooked.
I can not imagine the pain of a widower but I connected to the story and the main character.
This has a feeling of solace that you feel within the story of family and how your past can define you and shape you, or not.
This will definitely become a reread and I recommend this as a book club read.
Light but intense at the same time. So well crafted.

This story hit home during this time of year.
Overcoming the bottom of the bottom and taking the chance of failing in life for love.

This is a quick and enjoyable read and I am here for this entire series.
This author has an amazing way of quickly building an addictive world.
This book is number five of the series but honestly this book felt like a Stan alone to me.
I am glad I chose now to read this book as it matches the setting.
I look forward to reading the other books to this series.
Dark is an excellent way to describe this character and world that has been created.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was gripping and entertaining.
The true meaning of mystery.
I had no idea what was going to happen,
That twist made me cry because just why.
It is nice to see a female vigilante turned hero.
So many struggles happened to our main character and Grace is a good name.
With a fall from Grace she fund her way.
It was not easy, we have murder and lies and mystery that have you truly guessing.
I put this down a few times but overall it was entertaining and worth reading.
This was a refreshing read for me, I will definitely be looking more into mystery.

We have the original story of vampire verse lycan with a huge twist.

This is a breath-taking finale.
The author managed to encase the lies, magic and love all into this story.
I want more surprisingly.
This was the best book of the three.
I love Levi I have from the very beginning.

Subject may be triggering!
This is a beautiful story of a young girls journey after death.
Acceptance and understanding seems to be a huge moral to this story.
This author has an amazing way of carving real life lessons into the words and plot.
Are we ever ready to die?
Stuck between life and death our main character embarks to find her truths and her peace.
This was .a difficult read plot wise as it pulled at the heart strings.
I would read this to my children and pass this story down to generations.
I’m not crying your crying.
Beautiful in the description of what we may believe as the “in between” and how you in the end find and accept death.

This is a thriller that does not disappoint.
The author kept the creepy feel that had me a little unnerved to finish.
I love the lore and plot behind this it is very believable.
This focused on religion and family.
Finding your true self through a deep family secret.

I’ll give it four stars, I would recommend this to urban thriller lovers.

This book was the best one out of the trilogy.
This author has an amazing way of sucking you into the story and I love and hate characters.
I am part of this world.
The vampires, the underworld, the magic.
There are always issues within the covens and the reign.
This was amazing I cannot really explain without spoilers.
I would recommend to read book one and two.
Such a creative writer, I didn’t realize how much I needed this book.

Not my favorite, I did enjoy it but it is a new story, same universe.
So now we have Christian and I did not like the character.
The story continues from another characters time line in the series.
We keep the story alive and it is an adventure and experience of the dark and experience.
I have always imagined being a vampire.
If you had no other choice but to turn…..
I give this author great credit to focus on new characters within the same series.
Book two is a great bridge to book three.
Looking forward to more.

OOOOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhh yes! I love a spicy vampire series.
As book one this is one of the most enticing and original vampire story.
A little bit of spice and romance with the danger of death.
This plot is so well created it stays true to the vampire lure.
You can never go wrong with a main character named Salvatore and a green eyed beauty.
This was so enjoyable I cannot wait to read book two.

This was a beautiful read.
All teenagers and young adults should read it.
This was a morally sound plot of romance and friendship.
Do you remember who your best friend was in high school?
This story proves that we need to love ourseleves.
The trope of best friends to enemies drives this read.
The author really took their time to build the atmosphere of love and success.
This is a very light enjoyable read.
Perfect amount of spice.
Perfectly ordinary.
Perfect to get out of a slump,
Five stars.

This book is long and entertaining.
World War Two is one of my favorite topics to read about.
The plot is focused not just on the war but it seems very disconnected.
It is a lot of characters and development but it was so entertaining to me that I just kept going.
I enjoyed this story however I will not reread.
Great plot.
I am new to this author, because I enjoyed it I will give it four stars but this is not for everyone.
This highlights morals, friendship, love and everything that may make you an individual.
There are many time jumps and that is the greatest aspect for me so many view points.
Enjoyable yet chaotic.

This is a gut wrenching story of real life experiences of young women in the 1960s.
I have never cried so hard.
Life and death.
Feeling free while being held hostage mentally, emotionally and physically.
This story proves how history comes around full circle.
Every single woman in the world needs to read this.
I have never connected with a story so much.
As a teen mother I finished this story and kissed my daughter.
This author had me transported back in time.
Culture, politics, real life situations.
So beautifully written I don’t think any review will show it true justice.
I am still crying.

This is a beautiful story of love and mystery.
Magic can change the fate of one or all.
So many points of view and different stories.
You never know what could happen and it is fast paced from the very beginning.
Lies and adventure is pretty much an understatement.
The main plot is so gripping that you can read this over and over.
A great original a great story for recommending.

I am not one for mystery honestly but this was entertaining with a very interesting plot.
This is book three of a series; however, I understood what was going on with this being the only installment I read.
This is a brand new author to me and I appreciated the story.
I have read a lot of stories lately with female leads and Eve’s character does not disappoint.
Or a fan of this genre but the character development and plot makes the read 100% worth it.

An undercover agent helps our protagonist on her quest to survive something she may not be able to escape.
This story has you on edge with all the twists and turns but you are not going to want to put it down.
It is so descriptive and a bit emotional.
This is the beginning of an amazing series.

**Trigger warning** this story highlights topics that may be hard to read.
OMG Red has a family, so the world has shifted full circle in this story.
This book picks up exactly where part one ends.
This is such a beautiful part two too the series.
The author really captured the dynamic that is found within this read.
I cried.
Red has everything he dreamed of which I better then winning the lottery.
The character development is amazing I love the secondary characters just as much as Red and let me tell you…..
I would not mind a spin off.
The flow of this story has created a world that can stand alone.
I recommend read book one but yo can read this alone.
This author is sophisticated in the plot and the underlining story it makes you think.
This was a book I will reread and recommend forever.
Red deserves the world and I believe there is a moral to this story that stretches further then fiction
Beautiful, five stars.

This is a story of a woman on a mission and the back story of her dead husband, the guilt that fuels her.
There is mystery to the mystery and will she survive it.
Slow and tempting to just keep reading, and I was surprised at the ending.
How far would you go, what would you risk to catch a child killer?
To this female lead it can equal her life.
A gripping story to prove yourself and clear your conscience this was an amazing story.
Character development was spot on.
I look forward to reading more of this authors work.
