Blackbird's Deliverance (Book Four)Blackbird’s Deliverance
By: Lisette Kristensen
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blackbird’s Deliverance (Silent Secrets Series #4) by Lisette Kristensen was an action packed thrill ride that had me hooked from start to finish.

This series just keeps getting better and better. Short, detailed, and well written this wonder packs a punch. I loved the progression, the mystery, the action, and the everything. This book is probably my favourite so far, and I really hope it continues. This series is a connecting one, so I do highly suggest reading all the books in order. As there is background and action that if missed will lessen the impact of this book. And, they aren’t long, so you can get through them pretty easy.

Just know that this book, this series is worth your time and energy, it will have you biting your nails, flipping the pages, increase you blood pressure the have you screaming for more.

What else more can I say, that won’t spoil this read, short books like these are hard to review because just one small thing can ruin it. So yes this book gets my super high recommend and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla – Review by Emily Walsh

Beau and BettBeau and Bett
By: Kathryn Berla
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beau and Bett by Kathy Berla was a sweet, cute retelling, that was both intriguing and fun.

My first read from this author I went in opened minded, as fairytale retellings are my favourite thing to read. I have to say for a fairly short read this book was well written, smooth and it delivered what it set out to. But I don’t quite know if it’s a retailing, as most of the elements I loved about Beauty and The Beast, weren’t there. I mean it took place on weekends, there wasn’t a lot of time to truly connect, and the romance, though sweet and realistic, did feel rushed.

The gender swap was neat and original, and brought a new element to the story. Beau was a fun MC, and I liked his voice and narrative. Bett was, okay, we get to know her and why she is the why she is, and all that jazz, but I felt like due to her grandmother being a nasty, you-know-what, and it took away from Bett being, you know, The Beast. For me there was no true redemption, and I think there was a little missed opportunity there.

Overall this book was a fun little read that had me hooked, and I look forward to more from this author. To end this book gets my super high recommedantion and my stamp of approval.

The Trouble With Paradise (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 4) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Emily Walsh

The Trouble with Paradise (Madeline Dawkins Mystery)The Trouble with Paradise
By: Cynthia Hamilton
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Trouble With Paradise (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 4) by Cynthia Hamilton was a hooking addicting read that had me flipping the pages.

In this fourth book we are given a new mystery, new twist, turns, and thrilling details. I was impressed with this latest book, it topped the last book, and I’m glad I stuck with this series. I loved the double murder mystery, the new and old characters, the way the story flowed, builded, and just fully engulfed you. Our MC, for me, was much more put together in this book. I did have some misgivings about her in the last book, but this one, she was everything I wanted and more. Overall this book, this series is worth the read. It’s full of hidden mysteries, new and old, and I love how it all ties back to that first book, making it realistic and fully engaging.

So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you need this book in your life.

Happy Reading

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Siren’s Call: Cursed Seas by Amy McKinley was an hooking read that kept me flipping the pages

Right out the gate I got hooked on this story, well written and detailed it wasn’t long before I was pulled into this mystical world. I love the MC, her growth and stand. She was a powerful MC and one you don’t often fine on these types of YA books.

The world building was top shelf and made me feel like this world could be real. The plot was both unique and complex, keeping you both engaged and entertained.

Overall this book is a must read and it gets my super high recommendation on my stamp of approval.

The Fisher Men X My Heart (The Fisher Men Book 1) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey – Review by Emily Walsh

The Fisher Men X My HeartThe Fisher Men X My Heart
By: Rebel Nicks O’Dey
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fisher Men X My Heart (The Fisher Men Book 1) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey was a hooking read that took me out of my normal comfort zone.

My first read from this author I was caught but the clever sassy cover and the unique storyline. I won’t lie, I normally don’t read these types of books. I’m not a fan of the multi love interest and the guessing game of who will win in the end. But this story was completely different to what I was expecting.

I honestly loved it, and was hooked pretty much from the start. There was care taken with this story, and the writing had this off beat tone that was both light heart, and dark, reflecting our MC. Each brother had their own voice, personality and charm that made you wish she would choose them, and wishing you could choose them. There are some not so pleasant moments, and there is a trigger warning at the start of the book. So just a heads, there is a scene that might not sit well with you.

Overall this book is worth your time and energy, it’s a must read, and one that should be talked about. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get captured by this original unique read.

Happy Reading

Scarlet Fever (A Johnny Delarosa Thriller Book 1) by David Stever – Review by Emily Walsh

Scarlet Fever: A Crime ThrillerScarlet Fever: A Crime Thriller
By: David Stever
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Scarlet Fever (A Johnny Delarosa Thriller Book 1) by David Stever was a thrilling mystery that had my hooked, and on the edge of my seat.

My first read from this author I was stopped in my tracks by the cover, which drew me to the synopsis, and you can say the rest is history. It didn’t take me long to get sucked into this drama, and I have to say, I was quite impressed with the writing, detail and the dark grittiness, that almost takes you back to those old PI books from your parents closet. I will say there was some predictability to it, but in all it was a well crafted read, that keep me hooked and engaged.

Overall this book is worth your time and energy. The characters are smooth, cool and alluring. The setting is dangerous but a little sexy, and the tone matches the plot and setting perfectly. The side and supporting characters rounded out the story, and made it realistic and entertaining. The mystery was fun and full of danger, it kept me guessing and wondering if our MC will bight it. A little nail biting action, and the fear that maybe this author might actually do it, will keep you flipping the pages.

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

Happy Reading

The Fish that Climbed a Tree by Kevin Ansbro – Review by Emily Walsh

The Fish That Climbed a TreeThe Fish That Climbed a Tree
By: Kevin Ansbro
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fish that Climbed a Tree by Kevin Ansbro was a well written, rollercoaster read, that had me hooked.

My first read from this author, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into. This was a different read for me, and even though it’s in that urban fantasy realm that I love, it was still a different branch, and a little out of my normal comfort zone.

This dark read was highly well written and detailed. It was rich, lush and picturesque, it felt like you were there and apart of the story. I love the split dynamic between the dad and son. It was an intriguing parallel and something I haven’t come across. I love finding unique reads like this, as it breaks up the normal formats and sparks that reading fire. This book is one of a kind, and if the author’s other works is anything like this one, then I’m going to be adding to my summer reading list.

Overall this book is a must read, it will hook you, pull on your heart strings, while having you on the edge of your seat. So please take my super high recommedantion and my stamp of approval that you will not be disappointed in this gem.

Happy Reading

Irresistible Heroes – Heroes of Your Heart by Various Authors – Review by Emily Walsh

IRRESISTIBLE HEROESIRRESISTIBLE HEROES
By: Tamara Ferguson
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Irresistible Heroes Anthology was packed full of fun, emotional, feels invoking read, that kept me moving from one engaging story to the next.

I love anthologies, there is always a story for everyone, and you get to discover new authors. This one was no different, and I now have a few new authors to stalk… I mean follow.. yeah follow..

Anyways, as I was saying, this anthology was all that and more. I flew through this, and I was a little sad when it ended. The stories in these wonder don’t follow one another, so you don’t need to read them in order, you can flip back and forth, do whatever you want.

I will say that I did very much enjoy Fire Me Up by Alicia Street, it was that type of romance, it was sweet witty and just… so many feels. I also liked Two Hearts Unlikely Heroes by Tamara Ferguson, which I will say is an author I know and have read books by. It was part of the reason I chose this anthology. Again, this story was pulling, sparked the feels and the MC’s were just a joy to read about. I have so many feels right now, that my brain is all mushy.

So I’m going to stop rambling and just leave you with my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Proper Irish (Jaded Lily #1)

Proper Irish (Jaded Lily Book 1) by Zeia Jameson – Review by Emily Walsh

Proper Irish
By: Zeia Jameson
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Proper Irish (Jaded Lily Book 1) by Zeia Jameson was a pretty okay read that kept me reading.

My first read by this author, I took a chance because this book seemed right up my ally, and I’ve been wanting a good romance to kick start the heart. I fell pretty easy into this book, it read well and had a pretty good setup, and storyline. But, I felt that the characters weren’t as developed as they could have been, and at times the tone felt a little too teenage like, like it read more like a YA at times, than an adult book. That pulled me out of the story and frankly, it was a tab bit annoying.

Other then that, I did very much enjoy this read, it read fairly fast and I loved the misunderstanding with the two MC’s, and how they both had skewed vision of one another. These redemption type books always get me, cause they usually have fun drama and banter that keeps you reading and grinning. This book was no different, and like I said, even though I had some issues, it kept me engaged, grinning and it kept me there.

To end this book gets my high recommendation and my stamp of approval

Happy Reading
