Two Hearts Find Christmas (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance, #5) by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Jenni Bishop

Two Hearts Find Christmas (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance, #5)Two Hearts Find Christmas by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

TWO HEARTS FIND CHRISTMAS is the fifth book in the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance series by Tamara Ferguson. It is just as good as the ​previous books in this series and I was happy to read another book from Tamara and the world she has created with these wonderful hot, alpha male characters we get to read about.

Josh had a bad start in life but with the help of others he may just be able to start a new life. Now he is back in town, after 15 years away, he comes face to face with the one thing that has been in his memories all that time.

Nina Chandler has always remembered the one person that saved her from a fate worse than death and here she was now in her new job and face to face with that savior.

Tamara’s stories are unique and full of emotions as she delves into the world of wounded servicemen and their lives after. I can not wait to see what she has in store for us next.

The Cursed Armor by Brian Basham – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Cursed ArmorThe Cursed Armor by Brian Basham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Cursed Armor is the​ ​first book in The Tale of the Ghost Series​ ​by Brian Basham ​is a paranormal novella that was very intense and an interesting read. The world Brian has created for this story is one you can imagine due to his attention to detail in his writing.

The story follows The Ghost, who is a member of The Thieves Guild. The Ghost, is the best at what she does but when she stumbles upon something that completely changes her life, as she knows it, will never be the same.

This is a quick read, full of so many twist and turns, you find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat just wanting to know what is coming next. There is a bit of a cliff hanger leaving you asking what happens next, so it will be interesting to see what Brian has in store next for our heroine.

Beachcomber Test (Beachcomber Investigations #7) by Stephanie Queen – Review by Jana Teppih

Beachcomber Test (Beachcomber Investigations #7)Beachcomber Test by Stephanie Queen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Test by Stephanie Queen is the 7th book in her Beachcomber Investigations series that is fondly called “a romantic detective series”. This is my first read and as I have always been a fan of detective stories I jumped in feet first (why the hell not when the leads are a tough and gorgeous ex-Scotland Yard detective and an ex-special ops legend working as a private-eye on Martha’s Vineyard. I guess you could read this story as a standalone like I did but after finishing it, I have to admit, I wish I had read at least some of the stories before!
This particular story is a simple divorce case turning into a dangerous affair and I am sure the ex-special ops legend Dane Blaise cursed the day when the gorgeous ex-Scotland Yard Shana George made him crazy enough to take the follow-the-cheating-spouse case!
I loved their chemistry; I loved their idiosyncrasies, their perception of each other, their drive, their close friends and their local ‘fans’. I promise you couple of phenomenal hours where you laugh and bite your nails and once you get to the end, you will seriously consider giving yourself a Christmas present aka the first 6 books and novellas of the Beachcomber Investigations! You will not regret! And you might even start considering a short trip over to the Vineyard …

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Double Exposition is the first book in the Songs and Sonatas series by Jerica MacMillan and is a short and sweet romance story with so much passion it jumps off the page at you.

When pop meets classical, passion is born. When old meets new, sparks fly. When senior meets freshman, love blossoms. When the well dries up and you meet your muse, beautiful music is made.

Mercy: the deadliest Sin (Why we don’t Die in Dreams #2) by Debbie Zello – Review by Jenni Bishop

Mercy: the deadliest Sin (Why we don't Die in Dreams #2)Mercy: the deadliest Sin by Debbie Zello
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mercy: the deadliest Sin is the second book in the Why we don’t Die in Dreams series by Debbie Zello and is a continuation from the first book and not a standalone. Debbie is a very clever writer in the way she has written this dark and twisted tale of a being who has no conscious. A creature you can only hear about in nightmares. Something you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. Something so heinous that you just can’t stop reading about. There are a lot of twists and turns that but boy did Debbie twist it all up and deliver and ending I. Did. Not. See. Coming!

I recommend reading this story but beware you will be on the edge of your seat and hiding behind your hands.

Development (Songs and Sonatas, #2)Development by Jerica MacMillan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Development is the second book in the Songs and Sonatas series by Jerica MacMillan this is not a standalone book and you must read Double Exposition as it follows on. Jerica has written a sweet romance story that is full of hope and passion. Passion for what our characters do and passion for each other.

If you enjoy a sweet romance then this is for you. I am waiting to see what happens to our characters in the next book.

Undeniable (Fated #4) by A.S. Roberts – Review Gail Guerrero

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

Undeniable by A.S. Roberts

Four stars

This story had me in tears and ready to throw my phone. How one person can endure so much pain and suffering. Lily is this out of touch young girl who is finally getting some freedom. She wasn’t looking for love but it found her in the form of Jack. Who is a smart guy but is truly a bad boy. I enjoyed this story because it was so raw. The emotions you feel from hearing Lily’s pain and all her despair. You don’t just get a happy ever after you get a story full of ups and downs. You get to see the pain and joy that we all experience in everyday life. The author did an amazing job bringing these characters alive. They were given so much depth that this could be based on a true story. I couldn’t get enough of Jack and his bad boy ways that hide his intelligence. I felt really bad for Lily and how she was raised and how little she knew of the outside world. This is a must read the story will have you ready to beat someone for all the injustice.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Michael: A Scrooged Christmas by F.G. Adams

Michael: A Scrooged Christmas by F.G. Adams is heart warming festive quick read. Load up on the eggnog and settle back as you will not be disappointed with what F.G. has written. This is a standalone book but several of the characters mentioned in this book are from the This is Life series.

Michael Barnes has been wallowing in his misfortune and christmas is not on this years calendar. But when someone literally knocks into him, things just may change.

Holly loves Christmas and plans on restoring the festive spirit back to the one she has loved since forever.

This is a sweet second chances romance story that will fill you warmth and love. Reading the rest of the series is a must as well.

Craving Christmas (Craving, #5) by Multiple Authors – Review by Jana Teppih

Craving Christmas (Craving, #5)Craving Christmas by A. Gorman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Craving Christmas is a collection of 14 short stories that make you look at Christmas slightly different … or not … It is the fifth book in the Craving series. I have to say that all the writers were new to me and I loved how I could get a sense of who they are and what they write in such a pleasing way!
The stories are different and there are turns and twists and they are a mix of suspense and romance and some of them are so steamy that you need a mental cold shower … The great thing with anthologies is that you can spread the stories out over multiple nights so that you have something to look forward to after a day at work, something for ‘me time’!
The stories range from second chances to Angels and from finding a reason to live to Christmas spirits with a bit of BDSM thrown in … As there are 14 stories that keep bringing you back again and again, I guarantee that everyone can find at least one story they like! So join us in finding out who has been naughty and who has been nice!
