A Love Fulfilled by Angela K. Parker – Review by Jana Teppih

A Love FulfilledA Love Fulfilled by Angela K. Parker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Love Fulfilled by Angela K Parker is the second book in her Life & Love duet. I have to say that unfortunately I have not read the first book in the duet as I did not know there was another book though after having read A Love Fulfilled and meeting the main characters’ friend Michael and her fiancé/future wife Elona, I am not surprised they had their own story … I will be checking it out next …
A Love Fulfilled is a beautiful friends-to-lovers story of Laurence “Ren” Drake and Jessica “Jess” Morrow. They have known each other since they were kids and there has always been something special about how Ren feels about Jessica and he has never given up on the hope that they might be together, one day … meanwhile, he is her best friend and does nothing to jeopardise that as he cannot imagine not having her in his life.
I loved the story, it kept you engaged from the first page and you kept hoping with Ren and prodding him on in your mind … It was well written, the story flew smooth and at no point did I feel that hi, where did this come from or hi, what happened here… Thank you Ms Parker for the pleasurable hours that I spent with Ren and Jess and the secret that was ready to surface … I absolutely recommend you to pick up the book when you need some picking up and need to reinforce your faith in ‘what is to happen will happen’!

Love on a Limb by Laurie L.C. Lewis – Review by Amanda Pierce

Love on a LimbLove on a Limb by Laurie L.C. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love on a Limb by Laurie Lewis had me wanting more from the beginning. I have been in a reading funk since finishing a series not too long ago. I could not put the book down. The characters and story were relatable and I wanted to know more about them from the very first page. I have never read anything by Laurie Lewis before but I will now read anything that she writes. I hope this isn’t the end of their story, I will watch the page closely to see if their story continues. The book is written wonderfully and I would definitely give it 5 stars.

Resisting Redemption by Amabel Daniels

5 Amazing Stars

This book is officially one of my favorite books of the year, there’s only a few on this list and this one has just been added. You read in reviews often that a book was just impossible to put down, let me say this…..This book was completely impossible to put down, I read it in just a few hours and am still upset that it is over. This is my first book by this author and I promise will not be my last. Her writing style is the exact reason I love to read so much.

This book was an edge of your seat, heart racing, mind reeling kind of book. Every single word was important and every single page brought something new. Not only that, but I actually felt like an investigator during this story, working right alongside Grant and Roxie trying to solve the mystery of who killed Josh and trying to prove that Grants friend Ben was innocent.

I loved these people, both of them with terrible pasts trying to find a way to get along and solve this mystery while avoiding at every turn their attraction to each other. I just can’t say enough about how much I loved this book, I loved how everything played out, I love how the real Grant came out during the story and he wasn’t at all as he seemed to be, or actually what people thought he was. I loved Roxie’s personality and her snarky attitude, they both fit what my perfect book couple would be.

This author is amazingly brilliant, I’ve read too many books to count in my life and its seldom now that I find one that has me totally forgetting that real life is happening around me, but this one did. Thank you Thank you Thank you Miss Daniels for an amazing story, and I can not wait to read more of your books!

Simply Amazing!!

A Prickly Christmas Kiss (Christmas Kiss: Book 1) by Allyson R. Abbott is a unique and quirky short story that will have you laughing as you follow along with this sweet romance. Christmas is a magical time of year and it seems that it is more so at North Poleton. Where strange things happen and bring joy to those who live there.

This is one christmas tale you should take the time to read. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Undeniable ( Fated #4) by A.S. Roberts – Review by Jenni Bishop

Undeniable ( Fated #4)Undeniable by A.S. Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Undeniable is the fourth book in the Fated series by A.S. Roberts. It is just as good as the previous books in this series and I was happy to read another book from A.S. and the world she has created with these wonderful hot, alpha male characters and their women. I enjoy reading A.S. works and she never disappoints.

Jack has demons and the only way he overcome them, even if for a little while is by fighting. But when he meets a young shy women, she maybe the one who keeps the demons at bay.

Lily has led a sheltered life and everything she thought she knew has been twisted on it’s head when she sets out to find a life of her own. But she soon finds herself in a living nightmare, one she can not seem to wake up from.

Grab a good drink and a comfy chair, as this is a book that once you start, you will not be able to stop. There are so many emotions to deal with as you walk in the seedier side of this story. Undeniable could be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading the other books in the series as you understand where all the characters come into play.

Stitched Up Heart (Combat Hearts Book 1) by Tarina Deaton – Review by Jenni Bishop

Stitched Up HeartStitched Up Heart by Tarina Deaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Stitched Up Heart (Combat Hearts Book 1) by Tarina Deaton is a heart warming and emotional romance story that will captivate you from start to finish and is a great start to this series. I have not read anything by Tarina before but I look forward to reading other works by her, as she is a good storyteller.

Bree and her bestie have been through hell and back together more times than they can count. But as the saying says what doesn’t break you makes you stronger is certainly the case with the characters in this story. Bree is an independent and confident woman who knows what she wants and decides it’s time to do just that.

Jase is hot and sexy alpha male who is still broken after serving in the military. Jase has never had a real relationship but this headstrong and beautiful woman has made him rethink things.

Stitched Up Heart is a beautiful story with wonderful characters who will capture you heart. I cannot wait to read what Tarina does next with this series..

Honey Gold (Murder in Savannah #2) – Review By Heidi Eich Woodring

Honey Gold (Murder in Savannah, #2)Honey Gold by Lindsay Marie Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Honey Gold by Lindsay Marie Miller, is the second book in the Murder In Savannah Series. After reading the first book I dove right into the second book since it leaves off right after the first. Again you find yourself thrown right into another mystery surrounding the necklace. The storyline surrounding the plot, the dangers, and the family secrets grabbed me and kept me wanting more and more. While Addie has been through so much in her life and having Tom be her rock had helped her so much. These two while young, have a closeness many wished they had when they were young! This five star read had so much that I loved from the mystery, the drama, the romance. I was kept on my toes, and read this book in one sitting!

Flowers in December by Jane Suen

5 Stars

Miss Suen has found a way on to my favorite author list. I think what I love most about her is that you never know what your going to get when you read her books. She is definitely not predictable and that’s just one of my favorite things about her.

I was able to feel every single feeling that Connor was feeling in this book. I lost my Mom just a few years ago and it changed my life. This story was as real as it gets, there was no added drama and major twists and turns, I did kind of feel like I knew what was going to happen but it was more like it was what I was hoping would happen, and I’ve let my imagination take over the rest.

This author is a definite one click, her words flow so perfectly and her storylines are out of this world, and I can not wait to see what she comes up with next. I loved loved loved this book.

A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott – Review by Tracy Manderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott

5 out of 5 stars
This is the first book that I have read by Ms. Abbott but also the first book in the Christmas kiss series and I really enjoyed this short love story that had me laughing and rereading certain parts. I loved the setting and the small town that looks after their own and has amazing trust. The way Ms. Abbot descried the rustic setting and the isolation was perfect. The characters where well developed and the story line is amazing.
This story starts off with Emma Louise Fallon, aka Elf on her way to meet her girlfriend for a Christmas get away. Anything scape her well-meaning family and her ex-boyfriend. Now she on her way to a cold isolated cabin when she gets a call from said girlfriend informing Elf she won’t be-able to meet her after all.
Elf decides to head to the cabin and makes one more desperate wish: Can she please learn how to build a fire before she freezes to death? The solo rustic life is becoming all too much for her.
She’s convinced that a stray cat, who has decided to keep her company, has magical powers, that the local shop owners are secretly Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and nothing can stop her from laughing when the hot local Martian /come cop /come veterinarian introduces himself as Rudi.
Elf has sworn off all men so when she meets Rudi she feels things that make her act and talk crazy and by defense Rudi provokes the craziness as they fight their attraction for each other.
Will Elf give into her attraction to Rudi or will she stand by her no man rule. Will Rudi show Elf that she can rely on him to help her start the fire? Will Elf get burned or will she get the happily ever after with Rudi.
I really enjoyed this short funny read and can’t wait to read A Tangy Christmas Kiss book two of this series.

Half-Broke Heart (Combat Hearts #1.5) by Tarina Deaton

5 Stars

Oh my goodness, I loved this story so so so much. I did mess up though and read this before I read Stitched Up Heart, the first in the series. Although saying that I can say that yes, I need to read the first before I read the next one, but I was never lost in this story. This is the start to Denise and Chris’s story and at the beginning I did feel like I was missing something because it felt like it started in the middle of a story, well DUH, it did LOL.

I loved everything about this book, it read so easily, the words flowing perfectly and I just about threw my kindle when it ended. The storyline was amazing and the character build was spot on, and happened at the right time throughout. I loved the friendship interaction between Denise and Bree, and also the bond Denise has with Sprocket…There is just not one thing I didn’t love about this book!!!

The sneak peek at the end had me again almost throwing my kindle because I wanted it to go on and go ahead and give me the whole book.

This is my first by Tarina Deaton, and will absolutely positively not be my last! I have to end this now because Book 1 is calling my name and I can’t wait to finish that so I can move on to Book 2.

Many thanks to Miss Deaton for a beautifully written story, and a new series that I can already say I will be rereading in the future. I recommend this book highly, but don’t do as I did, Grab the first in the series and start there, I haven’t even read it yet and know that I’m going to love it!!!
