Master Descallia (Masters of the Consulate Book 1) by Sylvia Black – Review by Corine Lombardi

Descallia: Dark Vampire Romance (Masters of the Consulate Book 1)Descallia: Dark Vampire Romance by Sylvia Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 author had me obsessed from the first chapter.

Blindsided: A Contemporary Sports RomanceBlindsided: A Contemporary Sports Romance by T. Christensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

The Web of Humanity by Maria Turchin – Review by Corine Lombardi

The Web of Humanity: A NovelThe Web of Humanity: A Novel by Maria Turchin
My rating: 4 of 5 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.

Born in Darkness (Mafia Elite, #3)Born in Darkness by Amy McKinley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very interesting read.
I would recommend reading book one and two first.
This was a very quick easy read.
A great edition to the series.
Can’t wait to keep reading.
The king is back, and his love is back on track.
What would you do if your secrets were being revealed from your inner circle?
I’m honestly hoping to read of the fathers death soon.
The characters of this story are very intriguing.
Stefano is a fictional hottie and I cannot wait for more.
Lies and secrets are sure to soon be revealed.
Looking forward to book four.

No Names to Be Given by Julia Brewer Daily – Review by Corine Lombardi

No Names to Be GivenNo Names to Be Given by Julia Brewer Daily
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a gut wrenching story of real life experiences of young women in the 1960s.
I have never cried so hard.
Choices
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.
AMAZING!!!!!

Kissing Darkness (Dark Spell Series Book 5) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Corine Lombardi

Kissing Darkness (Dark Spell #5)Kissing Darkness by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There has been a war between light and dark and dark has won.
I wish I could read book 1-4.
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.
This is anew author to me and I am all in.
Five stars I would give it more if I could.

MURDER OFF ROUTE 82 (Eve Sawyer Mystery Book 3) by Jane Suen – Review by Corine Lombardi

Murder off Route 82 (Eve Sawyer Mystery, #3)Murder off Route 82 by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an easy read.
I enjoyed this it was light and enjoyable.
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.
Recommended.

Thief of Magic (Shadowed Minds Book 1) by Bree Moore – Review by Corine Lombardi

Thief of Magic (Shadowed Minds, #1)Thief of Magic by Bree Moore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes Omg Yes!
I loved this book I cannot wait for the rest of this series.
Special powers are always my forte.
This was very X-Men and I am all for it.
The character building I just fell into the story and I want to be part of 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.

Red's Peril Part 2: The Prez's Old Lady (Satan's Devils MC Vegas #2)Red’s Peril Part 2: The Prez’s Old Lady by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

**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.

Fall to Pieces by Becky Flade – Review by Corine Lombardi

Fall to PiecesFall to Pieces by Becky Flade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an amazingly written story.
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.
