Collision (Shattered Hearts Book 3) by Nicole Banks – Review by Emily Walsh

Collision (Shattered Hearts, #3)Collision
By: Nicole Banks
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Collision (Shattered Hearts Book 3) by Nicole Banks was a pretty interesting read that kept me engaged, and flipping the pages.

This book was by far the better out of the three. I like these two from the other two books, and frankly, I liked their storyline better. Mainly because I felt they were better developed characters. So when I seen they got their own story I was all for it. Needless to say, I was impressed, hooked and fall hard for this redeeming third book, in this okay series. Maybe because the author was more mature when it was written, as it was started at the start of the book. You can tell there is a different tone a written style. The overall story was well put together, from the opening, to the reuniting, to the danger and the thick chemistry. I loved how Chase had to fight he way back in, and the way Kris wasn’t having any of his excuses. I was one her side, even though I was rooting for them the whole time. It was a wonderful, reconnecting second chance romance, that was heavy on the feels, and heart pounding suspense.

I have to say this book is worth your time, it can be read as a standalone, but it you want their full backstory and the building romance, then I do suggest the other two books. They’re good reads as well, and this whole series gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval

Happy Reading

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Emily Walsh

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas #2)Rogue Wave
By: Gwyn McNamee
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee was a fast pace, action filled edge of your seat read that had me hooked.

The second book in this intriguing read, I was pulled in right away. The book bought out all that I wanted from the MC’s in the first book. And I have to say that I loved this book more than the first.

The MC’s really stole the show. Well developed with strong layers that just kept being pealed back, they kept me reading and I didn’t want it to stop. It isn’t very often that I fall for both leads, and I have to say even though I wasn’t a big fan of Cutter in the first book, this one showcased him in a different way. So much backstory, so much, just, wow. I want to know more about him. Valentina carried over that fierce powerhouseness from the read, and she just kept proving how awesome she is.

Overall this is worth your time and energy, it has everything you want, strong sexy complex characters, great plot, wicket writing, and you got one hell of a good read. To end this book gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series
(The Confectioner Chronicles)
by Claire Luana

Book 1: “What a fun read, it was everything I was hoping it would be and more. Claire Luana open this book running and quickly the plot is under way”

Book 2: “Masterfully written this beautiful dangerous world isn’t like anything I have read before. It just keeps hitting me with new fresh ideas and plots, that I can’t believe this book, this series, isn’t more popular. Not only are we treated with talented writing but, the emotions behind that wiriting gets you right in the feels.”

Book 3: “The final book in The Confectioner Chronicles, we are taking to the secrets that Wren hides, and ones we finally get to learn the full truth about. Picking up almost where the last book leaves off, there is no stopping this epic fantasy. As the danger lurks closer, the suspense thickened, I was on the edge of my seat for most, I at times even forgot to breathe!”

This series is a super high recommendation from me. It’s worth your everything!

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1) by Sherry A. Burton was was a pretty interesting read that kept me reading.

My first read by this author, I went in with an open mind, and just hit the grow running. I fall easy into this book, as it was well written, had a nice flow, and I liked the back and forth between past and present. I normally don’t read books like this, so it was a nice step out of my normal comfort zone. The were many different elements, that all came to gather for an original intriguing read. I like the MC’s voice, and the stories about her grandmother. It was a nice step back in time, and I fully enjoyed this read.

Overall this book is fit for all ages and it will take you back to a crazy time in this woman life. It’s a good way to see just how much we don’t know about or loved ones, like grandmothers.

The Flood by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Emily Walsh

The FloodThe Flood
By: Meghan O’Flynn
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Flood by Meghan O’Flynn was a dark twisted read, that had me hooked from start to finish.

Not my first read by this author, so I knew going in that I was in for something not only well written, but twisted, dark and trilling. I was not disappointed. This book starts out dark, and stays that way. It keeps pulling you more and more into its cold twisted hold of horror; that not only keeps you guessing, but will have you wondering, what you would do, in that same situation. Chills, just chills. There’s just something about the whole thing, that will get you right in the darkness of your soul. I’ve seem movies like this, but I have to say, this version has been one of the best so far.

This book is crazy good, and I’m still consumed about how everything when down. How as you go back, you start making connections, start seeing the easter eggs that you missed. This psychological thriller will have you second guessing every character, every word, every decision, and it will have you trying not to root for the MC, while secretly rooting for her to survive.

Overall this read is not only worth it, this book will mess with your head, have you wondering about human nature, and of course, as I have said, have you wondering what you would do. So please take my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval, that you will get lost in the darkness and suspense that is this gem of a book.

Happy Reading

Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Emily Walsh

Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1)Dangerously Close To Extinction
By: C.A. King
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King was a pretty okay read that kept me reading.

The first book in a new fun series, I went in with an open mind and excitement. As an avid reader of this authors works I knew I was in for something original, twisted and action packed. I will say that this book hit most points, but it did, for me, lacked a little when it came to the romance. But I think that more so had to do with the fact this book is a pretty short read. Coming in at 184 pages, there was a lot packed into this wonder, so I believe the love-development might have suffered because of that. To be a little blunt, it felt forced and a little off balanced, but I believe and hope that as this series goes on, it will even out. Just needs a bit more time for it to fully become believable.

Overall this book is worth your time and the read. It’s well written, well built, and it will hook you. It has a strong plot, that stands on its own, and the action and shifter lore was on point. To end, this book gets my high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) by Nicole Banks – Review by Emily Walsh

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts #2)Into Pieces
By: Nicole Banks
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) by Nicole Banks was an okay read that kept me reading.

The second book in this raw emotional read, it picks up where the last book left off. Following these characters over from that first book, which I did have some issues with, I was hoping that the MC’s would mature. As the two major subjects that this book covers, I was hoping for something more. As a serving member and a supervisor, I’ve seen, and have had to assisted with the issues persistent in this book. There were times that the author had it, I could see the growth, but there were others that I just sat back and shook my head. I still have problems with Angel, and I just, can’t get over the way he acted at times.

Overall this book wasn’t bad, the author does a wonderful job at expressing the characters emotions. Not just the MC’s but the side characters as well. The plot line is compelling, as we get more into the demons that both MC’s have and are carrying. That raw emotion is what kept me reading. Writing like that is hard to come by. So please take my recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get caught up in this feels invoking read.

Happy Reading.

Fools Rush In (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 3) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Emily Walsh

Fools Rush In (Interstellar Rescue, #3)Fools Rush In
By: Donna S. Frelick
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fools Rush In: Interstellar Rescue Series Book 3 by Donna S. Frelick was a compelling read that had me hooked.

First things first, though this says book three it can be read as a standalone. But I suggest reading the other books as they are just as multi-layered and rich. With that out of the way, let’s get into it, shall we.

I have to say I did enjoyed this book far more than the others, and I believe that is because, this books takes place in space. I loved the concept, the danger and the tone. It has a bit of mystery, mixed of danger and romance, but the romance was more an add on than a main plot point, which jelled nicely. Making the story have a natural progressive feel. I love the MC’s, the detail and the world-building. It brought you into this original read and kept you there. This book is truly something to be on the lookout for, and I can’t wait to see what else there is to come.

Overall this book, this series is worth your time an energy, and it gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Eternity (Captivity Series Book 3) by Sarah Biglow & Molly Zenk – Review by Emily Walsh

Eternity (Captivity Book 3)Eternity
By: Sarah Biglow
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Eternity: A Paranormal Romance Novella (Captivity Book 3) by Sarah Biglow & Molly Zenk was a fast pace ending that closed out a just as equally fast pace action packed series.

This series has been one of my fave this year, it starts out on a serious note and set the stage for the action and crazy to come. As this was a short read it was over before I knew it, and as happy as I am that this series got it’s ending, I was sad to see it go.

I do hope there is more to come from this world, as I feel like there is so much more that can be explored upon. But overall this book was just as good as the others, and held that same intensity, fast moving plot, complex layers, that has made this series not only memorable but fresh and original. Just to note this is a continuation series, so you have to read the books in order. If not you won’t get the impact, or understand the layers that make up this powerhouse read.

To end, this book gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark – Review by Emily Walsh

Regency Love: Reflections of a Young LadyRegency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady
By: T.L. Clark
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark was an intriguing read that hooks you from the start, and keeps you until the last page is flipped.

As a fan of historical fiction, I was excited to read this book. Right out of the gate I was pulled in, and was transported back in time to a place of lace, ball gowns, courting and titles. It was well researched, authentic, and the detail not only paints a realistic pictured, it brings you into the story itself. The world building was top shel, and the characters were well written, well rounded complex and compelling. My only complaint, is that this book is a bit on the longer side, over 400 pages. I found there was some filler along the way, I first notice it at the start with a letter to the MC’s younger sister. I get what was trying to be done, as I am a fan of Jane Austen, but I feel like that letter didn’t add to the plot, and was a bit dry. But other than that, I was impressed with this read, and I will be checking out more from this author.

Overall this book is worth your time and energy. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that weather if you like this genres or not, this book will take you back to a time long gone, and will give you that inside look into the minds of the women who at the time, did not have choices of their own.

Happy Reading
