Never Date a Siren (College Fae Book 1) by Byrd Nash – Review by Erin Wolf

Never Date a SirenNever Date a Siren by Byrd Nash

I give Never Date a Siren: A College Fae magic series #1 by Byrd Nash, 5 stars!

This book was absolutely amazing! This is my favorite genre, but it went above and beyond what I was expecting. It is fun, exciting and suspenseful all wrapped into one. The characters have huge personalities and I can’t say I’ve read a book where the main character is a dryad. I like how the author incorporates creatures we do not normally see in supernatural books. Not only that, she quickly explains what they are to those who do not know. That earns bonus points in my book.

Then there’s the story itself. Again, very unique. It takes the woman scorned angle and spins it for a wild ride. A curse is placed on a human and Brigit is determined to break the curse. That is just the very start of it though, there is really so much more involved. Most of it takes place in college in an absolutely amazing little town, but that is not all. This adds to it even more. I cannot wait to read the next book!

If you like fun, quirky urban fantasy with a great story and amazing characters, this book is for you.

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Erin Wolf

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3)Lillie by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley, 4 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers of previous books in series.*

Maggie is now married to the love of her life and adores her step daughter. She is happy in this house and home they have made together. But part of her misses her ghosts. Be careful what you wish for. Enter Lillie, a Holly’s new friend, and a little girl bent of making Lillie’s life a living hell. Why is she doing this? Can Maggie help and save the wonderful life she now has?

I’ve enjoyed this series and this book is a great addition to it. Maggie is yet again up against supernatural things that are out of her control. There are many surprises along the way to keep you guessing and you will not want to put the book down until you are finished. This book wraps up the series nicely, although I’m not completely sure I agree wholly with the way it’s wrapped up. That of course is just my opinion.

The characters are well written and the story is great from the very beginning. I highly recommend reading this book and this series to anyone who likes a good ghost story and a mystery or several to solve.

Game of Fear – A gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist (Fearless Series) by Gledé Browne Kabongo – Review by Erin Wolf

Game of FearGame of Fear by Glede Browne Kabongo

I give Game of Fear – A gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist (Fearless Series) by Glede Brown Kabongo, 4 stars.

This is a psychological thriller book for the young adult crowd. The main character is a senior at a very elite high school and it is centered around her and her friends. This book is well written and the story has you on edge the entire time. Someone is out to make her life hell and they seem to stop at nothing. What I liked most about this book was that you do not see many books in this genre for this age group. That in itself was refreshing. Not to pull away from the book, I was never a rich college kid who had to think of her family being disgraced if she did something wrong, so I couldn’t completely relate to this fear and this side of the book. However, I can understand and have read about the hidden secret you never want exposed. The author makes this very clear.

The cast of characters is good too — pretty much what you would expect from an elite high school for rich teens. There is a mixture of people too, not just all one type of person. I also like how the author integrated many different races, making the book have a different feel to it.

If you like YA Thriller that keep you guessing until the end, this book is for you.

BELOVED (21st Century Courtesan Book #3) by Pamela DuMond – Review by Erin Wolf

BELOVED (21st Century Courtesan, #3)BELOVED by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give BELOVED (21st Century Courtesan Book #3) by Pamela DuMond, 5 stars.

I have been following this series from the beginning and I always forget just how good each book is. I love Evie. She is so different than anyone I have read before. The gift she has and the unique way she uses it is so refreshing. Too many romance books are too similar. But these books cannot stand on just that alone. Each character she deals with is different, and you see her grow in each book. This one is not one I was expecting at all. I could not put the book down, I wanted to see just what would happen next. The story is one of love, and love lost. Of course, there are steamy scenes in it to make it even more intriguing.

If you are a fan of Romance with a twist, this book (and series) is for you.

Dagda’s Daughter (Raven and Hummingbird Book 2) by Nikki Broadwell – Review by Erin Wolf

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Dagda’s Daughter: Raven and Hummingbird Book 2 by Nikki Broadwell, 4 stars.

I really enjoy paranormal books about gods and goddesses and I was looking forward to what this book had to offer. It was so, so good. Katel is a wonderful main character. She has forgotten who and what she is, yet she still persists. There are other characters in here who are just as good. There is so much depth to all of the characters. I was thrown right into these worlds and was right there beside each character, rooting either for or against them. Some seem bad, but are really just misunderstood. While there is definitely a story and different worlds, this book is really all about the characters in the book and the author does a great job of focusing on them and pulling into their worlds.

If you are a fan or fiction about gods and goddesses, this book is definitely for you.

NaomiNaomi by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give Naomi (Maggie Trilogy Book 2) by Mya O’Malley.
**This review may contain spoilers from book one in the series.**

I was so enthralled by the first book in this series and was anxiously awaiting what book two held for me. The author did not disappoint in the least. The people you loved and loved to hate are back and they make you feel like you are a part of their town. You can see the struggles they have faced, but are determined to put the past behind them. There are a couple new characters we meet too and I hope to see more of them.

The story alone is something in and of itself. There is another ghost involved, but this one is much more dangerous. The story is so enthralling as they not only work on getting rid of this viscous ghost, but solve the truth behind his death too. Besides the fact that I love these characters, the story itself was enough to make me unable to book the down. Not to mention it is different enough to not feel like you’re reading the same story over again. It really is a wonderful book.

I highly recommend this book series to those who like suspense stories surrounding ghosts.

The Ash Park Series Boxed Set (Books 1-3) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Erin Wolf

The Ash Park Series Box Set (Books 1-3): Famished, Conviction, and RepressedThe Ash Park Series Box Set (Books 1-3): Famished, Conviction, and Repressed by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give The Ash Park Series Box Set (Books 1-3): Famished, Conviction, and Repressed by Meghan O’Flynn, 4 stars.

This set introduces us to a new dark Crime Suspense series. While they are all about Ash Park and involve the police department, each one has different main characters. This makes it interesting because we learn more about each one of these people. Some of them seem to be one thing, but there is so much more to them. It reminds you not to judge a book by the cover. The people are well done too. Each one is struggling with demons of the past, but they are all unique in their own way.

Then there are the stories themselves. Again, they revolve around the same community, and involve murders, but the motives and way of killing are different in each book. They are very dark and psychological, but interesting too. I wasn’t quite sure what was going on until the end. Some of them are a bit graphic and involve things that may be hard to stomach, so if you don’t like your criminal suspense to have a horror edge, this series may not be for you. However, if this is your style of reading, I highly recommend reading this series.

Recall: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 6) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Erin Wolf

Recall: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 6)Recall: An Ash Park Novel by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Recall: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 6) by Meghan O’Flynn, 4 stars.

This is a gripping cop suspense book where the police are trying to catch a killer before he kills again. It is quite graphic and dark, so if you do not like extreme detail about gory murders or delve into the darker side of things, this book may not be for you. But if you are okay with that, I definitely recommend this book. The detective has seen much and been through much in his long career. This makes him all the more interesting. I really like how the main character is older and seasoned, not new and fresh like too many main characters in books are. Personally I also enjoy his dark sense of humor. At the same time, so see just how big his heart is. And his partner compliments him so well.

The story itself is so interesting. This is the first book I have read in the series, so I am aware that I am missing out on some things, but the author does do a good of mentioning the things that have happened in the past. I cannot wait to go back to catch up. The story of them chasing after the bad guy with no idea who it could be is not a new one. But the author does this so well, it feels like something completely new to me. I could not put it down and I had no idea who the killer was until the end.

If you enjoy thriller suspense books where the detectives have to put the clues together to catch the killer, this book is for you.

Somebody in the Neighborhood by Judy Moore – Review by Erin Wolf

Somebody in the NeighborhoodSomebody in the Neighborhood by Judy Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Somebody in the Neighborhood by Judy Moore, 4 stars.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought Dawn was a great main character and I understood her thoughts and needs perfectly. She needed to get away and start over, and her aunt’s house was the perfect place. The neighborhood had the type of people you would expect in a small town type atmosphere. While you don’t always agree with them, they do really exist. I liked how each person was different too, not just cookie cutter placements.

The whole book is shrouded in suspense as you try to figure out who is killing and why. There are things happening throughout the book to keep you involved too. The list of suspects is quite long, and so many people could be the suspect. I was pleasantly surprised by the actual killer, it wasn’t one of my top suspects.

This is a great whodunit suspense set in a small Florida cul-de-sac that offers an interesting story and unique characters. If this is your type of book, I highly recommend that you pick this book up.

Amy’s Santa (Satan’s Devils MC Second Generation #1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Erin Wolf

Amy's Santa (Satan's Devils MC Second Generation #1)Amy’s Santa by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Amy’s Santa: Satan’s Devils MC Second Generation #1 by Manda Mellett, 4 stars.

If you have read the Satan’s Devils books, you will be familiar with Amy and Drew. While Amy has been away at college and then starting a career for herself, she had a dark tragedy happen that almost broke her. But she proves how strong she really is and is still going, with the help of a very good friend. Now it’s time to go back to her family for Christmas. But she doesn’t want her family to know. Then she sees Drew again and cannot seem to keep her eyes off him.

Drew has proven himself and with lots of hard work and dedication, excels in computer sciences and becomes the new president of the club. That is all he as thought about until now. But seeming Amy again, he thinks maybe it’s time to have a woman by his side. Yet she has come with another man. Not to mention the haunted look in her eyes. Can he win her away?

This book is quite a bit darker to me than the other Devil’s books. If you are sensitive to sexual violence, you may not want to read this. That having been said, it is such a good book and I could not put it down. We again meet the characters we have come to love to well. Besides the love and attraction between Drew and Amy, this book is about love and family, and what they will do for another of their own.

If you are a fan of hot MC romance, this book is for you.
