Saved by Love (Bellevue Bullies Book 7) by Toni Aleo – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Saved by Love (Bellevue Bullies #7)Saved by Love by Toni Aleo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! Just wow. This book seriously made me have all the feelings. This book was just fantastically written and beautifully done! Meeting Evan and Callie just makes me want to wrap myself around them and protect them from every bad thing that’s ever happened. Evan walking away from Hockey to preserve his mental health spoke thousands of words to me. Mental health isn’t usually written so well, but this author took it and ran with it and did a phenomenal job. Callie is a head strong, go getter kind of gal. She tries her hardest to be the best and sometimes being the best isn’t all that great. Watching Calle’s and Evans relationship blossom was amazing. It felt like it wasn’t rushed, it was well paced, and came together beautifully. I’m highly recommending this book to my friends because I know they need to read it too and feel all the feelings I felt!

Castor’s Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars Book 2) by Tai James – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Castor's Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars # 2)Castor’s Kiss by Tai James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a good Sci-fi romance story. You meet Mia who literally fights everyday for her life. She has a hope that one day she can be free. Free of her bonds and free from the fighting. In walks Castor. He turns her world upside down. She is not trusting of this man who makes her feel all of these different feelings and supposedly has come to save her. Does she trust him? Absolutely not, but what he promises is so tempting she can almost taste it. The story was written very well and I enjoyed every minute of it. I’m excited to see what else this author has to bring to the Sci-Fi romance genre.

Distant Memories (Nurse Morgan Series Book 2) by Kate MacInnis – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Distant Memories: A Nurse Morgan Series: Book TwoDistant Memories: A Nurse Morgan Series: Book Two by Kate MacInnis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In book two we meet Morgan her good looking boyfriend. Caleb. Things have progressed very quickly between the two much to Morgan’s dismay. Then in comes this ghost who is jealous of Morgan and tries to turn her world upside down! With constant shenanigans, and some heartfelt moments, book 2 takes you along for a ride just like book one did. I suggest grabbing some napkins because there were some parts that pulled my heartstrings and made me feel for our MC. The writing is wonderfully one and takes you into Morgan’s quirky world. I really hope there is a book 3. I want to read more about Morgan and her ghostly friends so much!

Devil’s Breath by Lang Johnson – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Devil's BreathDevil’s Breath by Lang Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a very well written romantic suspense. Both main characters, were written expertly, and wonderfully. Both are strong in their own right and still had their weaknesses that were relatable. Sera is an assassin, known as the Ice Queen rightfully so. She has a cold exterior that allows her to do her job efficiently and quickly. Cassius, is an outdoorsman with a good head on his shoulders and is tired of constantly bailing his brother out. Both worlds collide in the most fantastic way possible and I loved every single minute of it!

Distant Heart Sounds (Nurse Morgan Series Book 1) by Kate MacInnis – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Distant Heart Sounds (Nurse Morgan #1)Distant Heart Sounds by Kate MacInnis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book made me feel all the feels. It had me laughing till I cried, and made me feel worry for Morgan Cutler. Watching her learn about her power of seeing ghosts at the age of 40 makes me feel like this book was meant for me. You don’t see very many heroines in their late 40’s dealing with a ghosts, and evil incarnate. I don’t live in the Detroit area, but this author made me feel like that was my temporary home. I loved the writing and the details and the romance and the action. It was well blended together and not one took center stage. I look forward to reading book 2!

Dark Sparrow Box Set: The Complete 6-Book SeriesDark Sparrow Box Set: The Complete 6-Book Series by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This box set was exactly what I needed to get our of my reading slump. Six different book and each book comes with a different pair of people, each unique in their own ways. It was hard trying to figure out which couple was my favorite. They were all wonderful and badass in their own ways. Each is a stand alone book and not needed to read the others. The writing was simply amazing and I immediately was pulled in the world that the author created in each book! I’m impressed and will definitely re-reading this boxed set!

Deadly Sommer (Nora Sommer Caribbean Suspense Book 1) by Nicholas Harvey reviewed by Crystal Jimmo

Deadly Sommer (Nora Sommer #1)Deadly Sommer by Nicholas Harvey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow… just wow. This is my first book by this author and I gotta say I am absolutely blown away. Deadly Sommer is a fantastic first book. I was caught hook line and sinker from the get go. The writing was so beautifully done, there is no words to describe it. Nora is her own right is a bonafide Bada**. She doesn’t take crap from anybody! I was on the edge of my seat the entire book and found myself finishing it in one sitting I was so captivated. Just when I thought I had figured everything out that plot twist KO’d me out of no where and I was not expecting it! I can’t wait to see what Nora’s next adventures are, and I can’t wait to add this book to my ever growing book collection!

Taming of the Few (Guardians of the PHAE Book 1) by Rowan Dillon – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Taming of the FewTaming of the Few by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

At first it was a little difficult to read and keep track of all of the different characters, but once I got further into it, it got easier to read. I enjoyed the overall story and the different perspectives and lifestyles. One thing that had made me sad is that it was no different then the perils we are facing in real life, I guess that’s why it hit a little closer to home for me. I loved that it brought in a different kind of “fairy” than we are all used to. It brought into modern day. Overall it was well written and kept me on the edge of my seat! I can’t wait to see what book 2 has in store for us!

Caging Grace (Grace Series Book 1) by Carsen Lane – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Caging Grace (Grace Series, #1).Caging Grace (Grace Series, #1). by Carsen Lane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Grace in this story starts out as a 20 year old underground fighter. She fights, has 3 jobs, and takes care of her mother and her sister, needless to say she has a full plate. I love the back and forth of current Grace and past Grace. You get to se what made her into the woman she is today. I love how it references her to water, cool and collected, but dangerous when a storm comes in. She tries so hard to do everything for everybody but she forgets to take care of herself first. But, you get that chance to see her grow and learn and see how important it is to put oneself above all of the others. You got to see what a day to day world is for a MMA fighter even though it is fiction. The writing is done wonderfully, and the progress of Grace was done at a good speed, not to slow and not too fast. She’s relatable in her entirety and I saw bits and pieces of myself in her. She’s an easy to love character. I still have so many questions about the rest of the characters! Well done author well done!

The Curse of a Faeblood by MK Lorber – Review by Crystal Jimmo

The Curse of a FaebloodThe Curse of a Faeblood by M.K. Lorber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! Just wow! The storytelling about Ember is absolutely phenomenal. The author takes extreme care in building the world around you and introducing you to the characters. You meet Ember and you see what she deals with on a daily basis, and then her world is plunged into darkness when her mother is murdered. You want to wrap her up in this safety blanket and take her pain away. Enter Gavyn, he is a complete 180 from Ember. He has created this brotherhood that anyone would be proud of to be in. The stark differences between the two is great, but will they over come their differences when their world is turned upside down??? I can’t wait to read the next book!
