I found this to be a very fast paced story! For a suspense novel, I found the discovery of who the villain was a bit quick. There needed to be more detective work. I felt like overall, the story needed more action. I was super impressed with all the people involved in bringing Dianna home. The teamwork and collaboration of the different jurisdictions was awesome. The characters are intelligent and extremely likable! Love the cover!! Its what grabbed my attention! This is a new to me author and I’m definitely going to see what else she has to offer! Overall, 4 star read!
Allie and Charlotte are close friends.
When Allie is abducted, Charlotte makes it her business to find out who took her and why.
The story jumps narrative from chapter to chapter changing the POV from Allie to Charlotte back to Allie. Not only that, but it also changes time frames. From weeks ago, to the present, to weeks ago.
In terms of suspense, at no point was I able to pinpoint what was actually happening until it happened. I felt like the end was too close to the climax, otherwise this was a great read! 4 stars!

I have only read a handful of books in this genre, but I feel confident in saying that Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider is among the most original! It is book 2 in a 3 book series, with the 3rd one not yet released. It’s about Deliah Nite, a shapeshifter living among humans in Sentinel City because she fled her own world in another dimension after being ordered to execution. Working with the authorities from time to time, Nite does what she can to cover up the presence of her own kind in the human world while helping to “solve” the most bizarre and gruesome cases. In this story, Nite tries to cover up and stop an impossible drug that’s causing people to blister horribly before spontaneously bursting into flames. It could be human derived, but Nite believes it might not be! This story was just as awesome as the first one! Schneider uses incredible detail, lots of humor, and provides you with non stop, page by page action! Not appropriate for younger readers! 5 stars!
Flash Point is Book 1 in the Nite Fire series.
Extremely descriptive starting from page one. It’s about Dehlia Nite whom is a lyrriken. Lyrrikens are Shapeshifters transforming between human and dragon.
Nite is an empath. She is a “traitor” in her own world and has lived in the human world for 97 years . She uses her ability to work at keeping the human world safe and seperate from the shape-shifters world. Often working with the police, she investigates
cases involving possible lyrriken, and gives the human world a plausible explanation for what happened while covering up what actually happened. At the same time as investigating the actual why. This book has a lot of gore and blood. There’s a bit of foul language. Some nudity and some laughs. Just when you think it can’t get any crazier, enter the twists! This book was great from beginning to end and I can’t wait to read the second! 5 stars
This story is told from mostly Natalie’s perspective. Brittany Butler is a new to me author. Aside from the actual plot, I found the story to be lacking excitement until about halfway through. There was very few laughs, a little bit of action, and a lot of life lessons. It wasn’t the type of book I could read in one day. The story jumps between present and past until about halfway through, when it all merges and makes better sense. The story is a second chance romance that touches on some real life situations that might be hard to read for people who have experienced miscarriages. There’s a bit of language suitable only for adults. 3 stars!
Tapped is Book 3 in its series by Tarrah Anders. I am quickly becoming a huge fan! I unknowingly read a book previously, and am working my way backwards now. This story is placed in Las Vegas. Jenae tends bar at The Essentials and Kai is a Male Dancer hired on at The Essentials. Janae and Kai dated 10 years prior. They met their Junior year in school and dated for 2 years. She broke up with him because he knew exactly what he wanted in life, and it was scary because she wasn’t sure what she wanted, except that it was different than what he wanted. His first night at the Essentials is their first time seeing each other since their breakup. Very soon after they start working together they pick up where they left off. Kai is the only boy/man Janae has ever loved and vice versa. This story is without a doubt for mature audiences. I loved almost everything about this book. Melissa, Janae’s sister lives in New Orleans with her mom. Right off the top she is my favorite character. She’s funny and chipper and I wish there was more of her in this book! That is literally my only complaint! 5 out of 5 stars!

It Ends Tonight by A.M Myers is the 4th story in the Bayou Devils MC series. The story starts when event planner Quinn Dawson is in a car accident and Lucas Smith watches it and comes her aid. Immediately they realize they have a connection, and they try to build a relationship even though the turmoil surrounding them threatens to make their lives rocky. I found this to be a quick, fun read with lots of ups and downs and twists I didn’t see coming! I definitely recommend adding A.M Myers to the read pile!!
Cowboy Claimed is a fun accomplilation of quick reads! With this box set you will get action, suspense, second chances, medling mothers, tragedy, romance, and so much more!! What I liked the most was that every book took place in a small town USA where everyone knows everyone and the Sherriff is the kind of guy that goes above and beyond the call of duty. I loved all the main characters, and am excited to look up each author, since all 5 are new to me and discover what else they’ve written. The language is appropriate for all lovers of romance! 4 stars and definitely recommend!
This story is the second installment of the Southern Promises series by K.G. Fletcher. Like the first one, this novel can be read perfectly as a standalone, but makes better sense when read with the series. Hart is unemployed, and living with his sister Katie, who we meet in book 1. Gia is a business owner/dancer/impersonator. They come from different sides of the track and know 2 completely different ways of life. When Hart and Gia hit it off, I was definitely interested in seeing what kinds of ups and downs they experience. This story touched on some real world issues while demonstrating what it means to want to be a better person because of the person you love. I found myself super annoyed by Gia more than once, and kinda in love with Hart just as much. Fantastic read! 5 out of 5 stars!
Georgia Clay is Book 1 of the Southern Promises series by K.G. Fletcher, and my personal favorite of the 3 novels. It can be easily followed as a standalone, however if you plan to read the series as a series, pay attention to the side characters! This book gives excellent insight and builds up ALL the characters rather than just the leading 2. This book was super easy to get lost in. Once I picked it up, I didn’t want to put it down. Clay is an all out Southern gentleman, and Katie also born in the south, is a city girl through and through! I loved following the ups and downs and uncertainty of both characters as they navigate their relationship. I loved that it was 100% romance, and there was no subplots to detract you from what the book was actually about. 5 out of 5 stars!
