The Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard – Review by Katie Matthews

The Crazy YatesThe Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This was a short read about some really lovely characters. It didn’t take me long at all to get in this story and I really loved Callie. I could honestly feel that she had the weight of the world on her shoulders with everything that she had to do around the house and everything that she had been doing for her family for so many years. At times I easily forgot how young she actually was. It was pretty clear how much Callie’s family meant to her and so she did everything she could to try and support them in their time of need. I loved that the magic of Christmas shone through in this story and at a time where Callie really needed it! The ending to the story was really sweet and I would absolutely love to read more about this family again in the future.

The Mother-in-Law by Judy Moore

5 Stars

I finished this book yesterday and had to let my mind process what I read before I wrote this review. This is my second book by this author and I think I have some of the same feelings as after finishing the first one I read. Definitely a great mystery involving some of the characters in this story and even though it had a whirlwind romance involved, the way it was written made it feel very real, not forced.

I lost my mother-in-law a few years back and our relationship was never the greatest since I took her youngest of 7 sons, it still made me wish I could hug her by the time I finished reading this story. I guess the only seriously confusing part was, why in the heck did it take Victoria so long to make the decisions she made. I wouldn’t have lasted a day!

I’m not going to go into any detail regarding this story..You have to read it to truly appreciate it, and I can absolutely see this book becoming a made for TV movie. The ending had me wanting to scream, throw my kindle, and cry all at the same time.

This author has become someone I look forward to reading. She messes with your mind and you don’t even realize it is happening while your reading. I Love That.

Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next!

This was a one sitting read for me…Loved It!!

Hope’s Defeat (The Fated Book 3)
By Angela McPherson

I have loved this series from the beginning and this final book was no exception. This story has everything in you want in a good fantasy, there’s action, magic, suspense, romance, and so much more. This book had me on the edge of my seat through most of the story. I cannot get enough of Trinity and Blain, I am so sad to see it come to an end. The author did an amazing job really connecting you to the story so that you feel invested as these characters grew and wrapped it up nicely. You really need to read the first two books in this series before this one because it all comes together as your reading. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book and this series as a whole except to say that you must read it!! I highly recommend this book you will not be disappointed, this is a 5 star read for me!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My favorite book in this series! I love how this author can pull me into the story with ease and make me feel as if I am part of the story. This is Ben and Jordan’s story. Their story is full of romance, secrets and suspense. Their feelings for each other are real but when Ben starts backing off, Jordan questions if there is a future. Will Jordan move on or will the truth let them have their future? Great characters with great chemistry. I highly recommend this book.

The Lies We TellThe Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author. It is creative, engaging and fast reading. She does a great job going back and forth between present and past without getting me lost. Natalie has a new life but she can’t hide from her past and now choices have to be made. Will she learn that sometimes you have to go back before you can go forward? She is a strong character, she made me feel compassion for her, it is her life and one she can’t make up. I highly recommend finding out what happens to her.

Paladin’s Hell: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #1 by Manda Mellett – Review by Naomi McDonald

Paladin's Hell: Satan's Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #1Paladin’s Hell: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #1 by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Paladin’s Hell is the first book in the Satan’s Devils Colorado Chapter series. Even though this story could be a standalone, I recommend reading books in the previous Satan’s Devils series to get more connected to the characters this book mentions. You’ll have a much better time understanding the club environment shift from Arizona to Colorado.

Even though this book didn’t grab me right away like other Satan’s Devils books I’ve read, it still turned out to be a pretty good read. It starts out a bit slow, but picks up the pace toward the middle and things get good. As with the other books I’ve read in the MC series, Paladin’s Hell deals with some heavy subject matter and may contain triggers for some people.

This book is kind of a bonus in that you get two stories in one. There is the main story of Paladin and Jay, but you also get to know the Colorado club president and his wife and how they ended up together. And for me, in some ways I felt like their story overshadowed Paladin and Jay’s a bit. It is so intense.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When someone drops dead right in front of her, Karina just can’t help jumping in with both feet to solve the mystery and get some answers. These FBI and police should just thank their lucky stars she’s so snoopy, because she really is helpful. I mean, she does land herself in some trouble along the way, and she makes me laugh. This was fast paced and I didnt want to put it down. Such a fun read. I really got lost in the story.

Awakening Of a Soul Keeper – Prequel to the Soul Keeper Series
By Brienne Dubh

5 out of 5 stars
Wow Awakening of a Soul Keeper is the prequel to the Soul keeper series written by Ms. Dubh is amazing and my first read by her. I love these kind of series and this book intrigued me so I had to read this book and I was glad that I did. The characters are amazing especially since all of the crap they are going through. I love the quirks these characters have and the storyline is amazing.
Theodora is thrust into a dangerous world of powerful beings and surrounded by treachery, lies and violence, when she accidentally discovers not only is her husband’s boss a vampire, but she is also his soul keeper and fated mate.

Lyzander is the leader of all vampires the last thing needs or wants is his soul. With so much on the line he can’t afford to be anything but vengeful and Theodora’s presence jeopardizes everything he is.

Now forced to stick close to her unwanted mate, Theodora struggles to keep hold of her sanity and her marriage as she discovers who and what she really is.
This book had me hooked, and I can’t wait to dive into the rest of this series, that and… This powerhouse read ends on a powerful cliffhanger… So I need me the next book in this series.

The Lies We Tell
By Brittany Butler
Rated 4 stars

This story does a lot of bouncing around. I was confused multiple times about which present or past we were In. The past and the present seemed to be very similar sometimes. Other than that….once I got going and Into the story it was riveting. I couldn’t stop reading or figure out which way things were going to end. I was shocked more than once over the turn of events. Certain characters had me liking them one minute…then not liking them the next.
This is a first time author for me. I am glad I picked this up and look forward to more from her. She engaged me and made me have differing opinion of the same characters. The story made me think. How long should grudges be held? They are not healthy but sometimes it’s hard to let things go. Natalie seems to do this fairly well but struggles in other areas. She tends to run away. But is that really solving the problem?

The Lies We TellThe Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler is one storyline that I did not know what to expect.  It was told in the past and the present and at times I wasn’t sure which was which but it  had me intrigued and I was unable to stop until I had devoured it all. The character  Natalie is all over the place but she had me in fits of laughter. I am not sure I wanted to  live inside her head. She’s a runner but the one thing she wants is the one thing we all  want. Many times she is forced to face her feelings when she doesn’t want to but the  ultimate betrayal maybe the best thing to happen to her.

The Lies We Tell
By: Brittany Butler
5 out of 5 stars

The story The Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler is a new adult/romance book. I enjoyed reading about the character of Natalie Conner. As I read the story, she became someone that I could empathize with as issues have come forward in her life that is unexpected. I found myself caring about what happens to Natalie and wanted her to find happiness. My emotions went up and down the entire time that I read the book. I enjoyed reading the dialogue/interactions between Natalie and the other characters in the story. What does the future hold for Natalie? Read this book to find out. The story is told from Natalie’s and other character’s POV. As the book progresses, I found myself with a better understanding of each character’s feelings and views of what is happening. It is a story that is intriguing and pulled me in from the very beginning. The book has a smooth flow to it and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. It is a story I would recommend for others to read.

Hope’s Defeat (Fated Book 3) by Angela McPherson – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Hope's Defeat (The Fated #3)Hope’s Defeat by Angela McPherson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hope’s Defeat is book three in the Fated series by Angela McPherson. It continues with Trinity, Blain and crew fighting to save the world and mankind. This story is so far from what I read on a regular basis, it makes my heart happy to read each word. The dramatic and ever present danger and violence just adds to the appeal and I always have to read this author’s work in one go.

As usual, the writing is so captivating, so ethereal, it draws a reader into this world and the experience is so unique, you are left wondering if that really happened. The lines are blurred between fantasy and reality. The escape into these stories is entire and solid. Nothing much else exists except these characters and their journey. Oh, and coffee to heighten the experience even more. Reading this story made me really happy and it is a book that is well worth a reread. 5 stars.

“I’d kept his dirty little secret far too long, festering like a wound that would not heal. His darkness stained my future and shattered my dreams, But now, I was free to know the truth, would it set me free or destroy me?”

“Forgive me for what I’m about to do.”

Benjamin Thomas Stone never wanted for anything, but that all changed the day his father hired Jordan Mitchell. Forbidden to cross the proverbial line he kept his distance.

But that all changed, the day his father died leaving the truth spilled in a single letter.

What he didn’t know was powerful things long buried were about to unfold, changing his life forever.

The unthinkable. The ultimate forbidden fruit. Jordan Mitchell may indeed be off-limits forever.

Control just out of reach, giving up was never an option. Fueled by his obsession he thrashed his way out, captured by the restraints of a love never meant to be.

But in the end it was worth the risk because loving her would never change.

How he loved her was the question.

My name is Brittany Butler and I started writing my first novel at age twenty- two. One year later Forever Careless, my debut novel, was self- published and was an Amazon Best Seller. I am a paralegal from East Texas. During my free time, I write, read, or binge watch shows. Sometimes I go to friends’ houses to listen to their drama for good book material.

I’ve always had a crazy imagination and I loved writing. So, I started writing Forever Careless to see if I had it in me. It was too much fluff for me, however my friends loved it. So, I published it. I wrote another, this time I pushed to boundaries of “fluff.”

One day, while in a very bad mood, I thought of a story without a happy ending; one with real problems and real people. A story that was very close to my heart. It nagged me constantly. Months later, I sat down and started Hazed. At first, he was going to be a part of the Forever Series. Just come in and wreck their lives. Instead, I went another route.

Only weeks later, Hazed was finished. I was obsessed with it. It took me over a year to finish my first novel and weeks to finish this one. I knew what that meant. I liked to write about bad people who do bad things. I like to get inside their minds and feel their crazy. So, if you’re looking for hearts and flowers, you won’t find them here. My stories are real and they aren’t always pretty. If you do stick around, I will be eternally grateful. Happy reading!

The Confectioner’s Truth by Claire Luana – Review by Moriah Venable

The Confectioner's Truth (Confectioner Chronicles Book 3)The Confectioner’s Truth by Claire Luana
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Confectioner’s Truth is the third novel in the Confectioner Chronicles series. This is my fifth novel by this author.

Two weeks after the events of the second novel, Wren and her group are exploring new lands.

Going through a period of self-doubt, Wren has to come to terms with her previous bad decisions. She feels the weight of her loss and wonders what to do next. She has been a character that I have really enjoyed reading about. Her growth over the course of the three books has been amazing to read with me rooting for her and wondering how this story will end.

Wren has made a lot of decisions but now she has to pull herself together in order to save Alessa.

I can’t describe in words how this novel has made me feel. Feeling a maelstrom of emotions and sad to see this end but it was a satisfied ending.

For anyone looking for something new to read with an amazing premise and relatable characters, I highly recommend this.

The Memory of Us written by Lisa Sorbe. This is a cute second chance story about Laney and West. There’s a lot of push and pull with their relationship and with everything that happened in the past. Laney is a little hard to get to know as a character but the more into the story the more you start to understand why. West on the other hand is pretty open about certain things especially when it comes to messing with Laney and getting her to open up. But once every thing is out in the open will thing work out like they should have or is there too much in their past for them to move forward with a new relationship…

The Only Series, 5 book boxed set by Bree Kraemer – Review by Robin Rankin

The Only Series, 5 book boxed setThe Only Series, 5 book boxed set by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Only Series by Bree Kraemer is a set of five books and what a gre as r series this is. I have had the pleasure of reading other books by Ms. Kraemer in the past and she hasn’t disappointed me yet. There are several hot moments throughout the series that will leave you fanning yourself. We meet several great characters who all face different challenges while falling in love.

Only By His Touch was my favorite of the five though I loved each one of the stories so much this one got to me and I think that is because strength Samantha has and shows when life decided to knock her down then kick several times while she is down. She come out on the other side stronger than everyone realized, including herself.

Only With Trust is Michelle’s story. She has been burned many times in the past and has serious trust issues due to that. She is afraid to give her heart and rightfully so but in the end the heart wants what the heart wants no matter when the brain says.

If Only is Colin’s story and I think of the guys he ended up being my favorite with Steve a very close second. His family has a history with love that not a lot of people can say they have and it slams into him the moment he sees her. Why the brain seems to shut down once a guy falls in love I will have no idea.

Only You is about Sophie getting her happily ever after, after heartbreak and watching her friends find their someone special. Sophie broke my heart a little bit and I just wanted to hug her and make it better.

In Only For Love we finally get to find out about Gretchen and see the scars she carries from her childhood. Running will not fix anything and I wish I could have told her that.

Each one of these stories touched me in a different way and saw a little piece of myself in each one of the women. Great series.

Rising Star by Susannah Nix is the type romantic comedic story I have found myself enjoying lately. Griffin is what I think I would to think my favorite actors be like in real life when the cameras aren’t looking. The love he has for his dog just melted my heart and made me like him that much more.

Alice is amazing, she is working on her Doctorate and while working with another Professor has a horrible experience that unfortunately happens way too often in life. I know it isn’t the easiest of things to face but I wish she had done more.

The two of them together just work so well together and I enjoyed their story and look forward to reading other books by Ms. Nix, hopefully in the near future.

of myself. She’s young, feisty, and wants to take on life. The second book, has my heart because Sasha is fierce, and what I strive to be in work. I also love Brain and their relationship. And the third book is every girls school hood crush come too. It’s different relationship but still sweet and naughty! I can’t explain how much I love all of them! PS there’s two more books in this series. Keep reading, you won’t regret it!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fatal Legislation by Ellen Butler is book two of the Karina Cardinal Mystery Series. This book is full of suspense, drama, and mystery. You are definitely on the edge of your seat the entire time.

Karina is independent, strong, and smart. Karina witnessed something she never expected to see. However, now that she’s considered “a person of interest”, she is determined to get to the bottom of it. There is a lot in Karina’s way but she’s determined not to let them get in the way. Karina has to maneuver politics and money.

I enjoyed this book even more than the first book I think. It has everything you could want out of a book and it’s very well written! Karina is such a strong character. She’s driven and determined. She’s definitely someone you could picture as yourself. I am glad I picked this book up!

Rising Star was a great 5 star read and book one in the Starstruck Series.

Alice has been asked to move out but she’s been dodging her roomie, now that she’s a third wheel he wants her out. She hasn’t had any luck finding a new place. She is working as an extra on a tv set.

Griffin is an actor on the show that Alice is an extra for. Now that the show is coming to an end he has to start looking at other options for his career. He has to work in Atlanta for a few months and gets news that he no longer has a dog sitter.

While talking to Alice, Griffin comes up with a great idea to have her live at his house to house/dog sit for him. Alice is a little leary at first because of something that happened to her in the past, but finally agrees.

As Griffin and Alice spend time together the closer they seem to get. Could there be more for them?

There is so much to this great read. We see what can happen to celebrities and tabloids and just what a mess they can cause. We learn more about Alice’s issue with a professor. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. And I loved Taco. If you’re looking for a great read than I suggest you 1-click and get started today. I look forward to reading more from this author.

A full length novel filled with suspense and shenanigans.

Karina Cardinal is tossed right into trouble again. But this time she did not go looking for it. It just seems to follow her. This time she definitely was not looking for trouble.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I originally read this series as individual books in 2017. It was so cool re-reading them as a boxed set. Like revisiting old friends who you haven’t seen since the Christmas Party last year 🙂

I love this series, it gives me the same feelings that I got when I read Jessie Evan’s “Always a Bridesmaid” series or Melody Anne’s “Billionaire Bachelor Series” starring “The Andersons” – that feeling that I want to – no need to – devour all the books and never want the series to end. Each book is better than the last and we get to see what the previous characters are up to now.

Each book has all the components of a “classic” romance. There are friendships, family, sexy times, angst, misunderstandings and ROMANCE.

I have a total girl crush on the author and she has become a one-click author to me – no questions asked.

I absolutely recommend this series and it is in my top 5 romance series of all times.

The Something Series - Box Set Books 1-3: (Tell Me Something, Ask Me Something & Bet Me Something)The Something Series – Box Set Books 1-3: by Aubrey Bondurant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Something Series Box Set contains the first three books in the Something Series by Aubrey Bondurant. I absolutely love this series since I read the first book two years ago and i can’t recommend these books highly enough. This box set is a great way to get into Ms. Bondurant’s work- and it is like a present – you get three books in one go! The Box Set contains: Tell Me Something (1), Ask Me Something (2) and Bet Me Something (3).
Book one gives us Haylee and Josh – the story sucks you in from the first chapter, it keeps you on your toes and it is hard to put the book down as you want to know how do those 2 hard headed aka independent and strong willed people figure out a working relationship.
The author was able to find a great balance between cute and light-hearted and ‘sturm und drang’ making it an enjoyable read.
Book two gives us Sasha and Brian – Ms Bondurant’s writing was even better, the characters were more complex, there were no embellishments, you were getting hit with emotions right and left…I cannot tell you how much I cried while I was reading this book… Don’t worry, it is not a bad thing, I think it gives credit to the writer’s ability to write so well that I could relate to what was going on to the extent it made me cry. I did laugh out loud as well, no doubt there!
Ms Bondurant does not shy away from the topics that many of us struggle with – control over being vulnerable, anxiety, panic attacks, being alone or trusting, keeping appearances or letting people in… I felt like I was living the life Sasha was living, feeling the pain, confusion, triumphs, love, sex…
Book three gives us Kenzie and Colby – Kenzie has been in love with Colby since she was six years old, but will he ever not see her as her brother’s best friend’s sister. Ms Bondurant shows us how Kenzie is growing into herself and finding out what it is that she is supposed to be doing with her life, standing up for herself, her love…and Colby, a man child, vulnerable and playboy, needing to grow up and stop hiding and take a stand… Ms Bondurant does not write about being perfect and having everything come easy, she writes about that we need to work for what we want and what we deserve!
I guarantee that once you finish the third book you will continue to the rest of the series!

Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine – Review by Roxana Yoss

Surviving the Storm (Surviving Series Book 2)Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love discovering new authors that become more than just a writer. I’ve realized that Virginia Wine has a beautiful way with words and creating a world where I can get lost within. I found myself loving everything about Surviving the Storm. I felt like I couldn’t let go of the characters, like I was experiencing everything that they were going through. And that, is what I love about reading. Having that beautiful experience that the author meant to do. I can’t wait to see where Wine takes this series, as this book was a definite 5 star for me.

The Only Series, 5 book boxed Set by Bree Kraemer – Review by Heather Bahm

The Only Series, 5 book boxed setThe Only Series, 5 book boxed set by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bree Kraemer’s The Only Series is a 5 book boxed set which includes: Only By His Touch, Only with Trust, If Only, Only You and Only for Love. This boxed set was amazing to read with the overlapping characters between the stories and the elaborate plots that they encompassed. I really liked how the author tied in the stories between books, characters, and all to create five separate stories, but each intertwined in their own ways. The female leads each had their own unique personalities that allowed you to keep them apart as you ventured between the stories, as well as, the male characters which were distinctly divine in their own rights. This story flowed with attraction, chemistry, and an loads of emotional journeys to embark upon. Absolutely loved!!

Surviving the Storm (Surviving Series Book 2)Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine
Four Stars

Surviving the Storm is the second book in the Surviving series by Virginia Wine. This series should be read in order as characters from the first book are back in this book. Plus you will have the backstory for this great contemporary romance. Alex and Madison are both strong willed characters with character flaws. Will they learn to trust each other to fall in love. This book is full of romance, suspense, action and drama. Alex and Madison have such chemistry, they just need to work through all the secrets and lies. I love the follow-up in this book about Eden and Theo. This is a great series and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Rising Star by Susannah Nix – Review by Katie Matthews

Rising StarRising Star by Susannah Nix
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I really, really enjoyed it. It didn’t take me long at all to become absorbed by the author easy to read writing style. There are some sensitive issues in the story but the author did a great job when writing about them. I really felt like she had taken the time to think about how to write about them which made it very realistic. I felt a real connection with Alice and I enjoyed reading about her. I liked Griffin too, I don’t think that he was quite what I was expecting and so it made him even more refreshing to read about.
Overall I really enjoyed this story – it was a sweet romance filled with a little bit of angst along the way! I will definitely be looking to read more from this author again in the future.
