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

Shattered (Shattered Hearts Series Book 1) by Nicole Banks – Review by Emily Walsh

Shattered (Shattered Hearts #1)Shattered
By: Nicole Banks
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

Shattered (Shattered Hearts Series Book 1) by Nicole Banks was an okay read, that is heavy on the emotions and drama.

A little out of my normal comfort zone, I went into this book with an open mind. I like the flow and the multi POV’s, each character had a distinct voice and the transitions were smooth and noticeable. The voices didn’t blend, which is hard to do with more than two POV’s; so props to the author for that.

I like the overall plot, but there are a few things that bother me. I didn’t like the push and pull, sure at first it was expected, and I wasn’t bothered by it, as both Angel and Jasmine are heavily scarred. I didn’t like how long it went on, the lack of honesty, and the immatureness of their growing relationship. They were childhood friends, but acted more like “old not close friends”. I was waiting for more from them, and I was let down in that regard. Also, as the story went on, I wasn’t too please with the way Angel was acting.

Overall this book is a good read, it has many complex elements that are multi layered, and full of raw emotions. I am going to be reading the second book, as this one does end on a cliffy. This book gets my recommendation and stamp of approval, so please give this book a chance, as it has a compelling story of learning to trust, and picking up the shattered pieces.

Happy Reading

Surviving Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 3) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Emily Walsh

Surviving Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 3)Surviving Wrath
By: Gwyn McNamee
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Surviving Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 3) by Gwyn McNamee was fast pace, intriguing read, that packs a mean punch.

This book was everything you wanted in concluding a series. As I said it was fast pace, but moved in a steady way as to keep the reader engaged. There wasn’t a dull moment, as the detail kept your mind there, and the suspense kept you on the edge of your seat. This book at times will get you in the feels, with its well written characters, plot, and storytelling. The author did a wonderful job at making this book feel like a full leant novel. It’s always amazed me when Authors can do that. This book is part of a series, so make sure you read the other books before this one. As it has a building continuous plot, and you won’t get the full impact if you skip them, like this book they aren’t long reads.

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

Happy Reading

Finding Ruth: A Daughter’s Quest to Discover Her Mother’s Past by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Emily Walsh

Finding RuthFinding Ruth
By: Cynthia Hamilton
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Finding Ruth: A Daughter’s Quest to Discover Her Mother’s Past by Cynthia Hamilton was a pretty okay read that kept me reading and got the feels flowing.

Out of my normal realm of reading, I didn’t know what to expect. This book pulled me in pretty fast, and it had this nice easy flow that made it easy to follow and read. This story is just as much about forgiveness as it is about a life journey through time and shattered memories. It really gets the feels going, and at times I really felt for Ruth. But I will say that things did get a little repetitive, and parts became are a little dry because of that. It was sadly enough to pull me from this compelling story. But other then that this book is well constructed, well researched, and has so many emotional scene that you can’t help but continue reading.

Overall this book is worth your time and energy; it’s a wonderful summer, or lazy Sunday read. To end this book gets my high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Legacy of Luck (The Druid’s Brooch Series Book 3) by Christy Nicholas – Review by Emily Walsh

Legacy of Luck (Druid's Brooch #3)Legacy of Luck
By: Christy Nicholas
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Legacy of Luck (The Druid’s Brooch Series Book 3) by Christy Nicholas was a pretty okay read that was intreating, engaging, with a solid plot.

A follower of this series, I have to say this wasn’t my fav, but still held my attention and kept me reading. I love the characters, and the MC’s were well developed, compelling, and easy to like. I like the opening, it set the stage for me and cemented the plot to come. The flow was steady, and the detail, wow, this book was heavy on the detail and really made you feel like you were apart of this world. I love the journey, the mystery, the little magic, and the high price that our MC had to pay when given the “gift”. This book was a rare take on what it deemed as romance. Sure they had little time together, but his will to dave her, find her, and doing what he could, was a treat for me.

I do wish there was more magic, and fea, but overall this book was a pretty solid read, and it gets my high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

By: Jennifer L. Allen
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen as fun sweet read that had me hooked.

This book was a perfect slow lazy summer read that was relaxing, entertaining and funny. It was well written, detail and has this nice cheesy tone that you can’t help but get it pulled into.

I liked that it was told in dual POV, so we got the funess from both sides. That added such a nice element that I couldn’t even pick a favourite POV. Both MC’s are strong and well developed. I loved their interactions and banter. It was natural, engaging, and it had this nice realistic growth that you couldn’t help but smile at. This book really got me in the warm and fuzzy feels. On a whole this read has many familiar elements as any romcom, but also has this freshness that hooks you and blows the normal cliché’s out of the water.

Overall this book is worth your time, energy and feels. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that this book will put a smile on your face, and leave you wanting more.

Guilty Pleasures Volume 3: Guilty Pleasures by Joyce McCarthy – Review by Emily Walsh

Guilty Pleasures Volume 3Guilty Pleasures Volume 3
By: Joyce McCarthy
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Guilty Pleasures Volume 3: Guilty Pleasures by Joyce McCarthy was a hot steamy read, that had me hooked.

Not my first read by this author or in this series. I was instantly pulled in by the tease of an opening, and before I knew it I was flipping the steamy pages, while trying not to get too, over heated.

Following Brad and his adventures was a treat. This collection of short yet steamy stories are the perfect mix of smut, hot, quick, and it pulls on fantasies that some of us may have had. It’s a perfect way to escape, get you a little hot under the caller and, looking over your shoulder to make sure no one catches onto what you’re reading. The writing is easy to follow, detail and has a nice rhythm. Overall this book is very well constructed and is worth the pick up and read.

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

Happy Late Nigh Reading
