Vortex by Kimberly Packard
4 stars

While I commend those who do this, I could never be a storm chaser! I myself live in tornado alley but have thankfully never been in a tornado.
I found myself reading so fast as I needed to know what happened next. Very fast paced and definitely wasnt expecting some things that happened.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace is the closing chapter or Virginia Wine’s Surviving series! What a journey it has been! She has taken us through ups and downs and with this last book she has given us a present that will haunt us for some time.

Claimed Royalty (Crowned And Claimed #1) by Betty Shreffler – Review By Chantelle Smith

Claimed RoyaltyClaimed Royalty by Betty Shreffler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is everything and more! I thought I would enjoy this read as everything else I have read by Betty Shreffler has been brilliant, but this book was everything and more! Claimed Royalty is Book 1 in the new series Crowned & Claimed.

This book was epic from the get go, with incredible characters that are strong, powerful & independent. This book was filled with passion, romance, sexiness. It had action, adventure and an ending that I definitely did not see coming. It was filled with twists and turns and had me on the edge of my seat through out the whole read.
It definitely had a futuristic type of vibe to it yet an old historic underlying setting but I throughly enjoyed everything I read in this book, I was totally captivated and entranced by this read, for me I found this book a bit emotional, especially with the raw, real emotions that our main character Fiora felt and deals with through out this book.
I loved the setting of this read, Betty Shreffler has made this book a mentally visual read that I couldn’t put down, I loved learning about Anauka and their people, the various other characters and especially Matheas.

I totally recommend this book, you will never be disappointed. I will most definitely be eagerly awaiting Book 2 of this series, to see where this story goes after the twists at the end!

Black Bullet (The Order of the Senary Book, #2) by L.D. Rose – Review by Erin Davidson

Black BulletBlack Bullet by L.D. Rose
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Black Bullet is the second installment in L.D. Rose’s Order of the Senary series. This book can be read as a standalone, as it follows different characters from the first book, but the world building isn’t as strong as the first one. I recommend reading the first one to get a better sense of the world, and how it all came to be with leeches ruling over New York City. This book definitely started with a loud bang, and did not slow down for a second. I found the second book to be better than the first, in terms of Rose’s writing style growing and getting better and better. I found Lawan and Jon to be very interesting and realistic characters, that were written better than Blaze and Valerie from the first book. It’s amazing to see how much Rose’s writing improved between the first and second book, and how complex her characters are now. I loved all the books gory details, that for once weren’t left to the imagination. Rose weaves such a masterful story, that you can practically taste the blood yourself. I really really enjoyed this as a second installment and look forward to seeing how the series grows and develops.
4/5 stars

Claimed (The Torzial Affair Book 3) by Via Mari – Review by Erica Fish

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Claimed is the third book in the Torzial Affair series by Via Mari. Via Mari has an interesting writing style that keeps the reader wanting more and more. I fell in love with Brian and Jenny. They are my book friends. I have been with them from the first paragraph of Shattered until the last word in this book. This book has all the qualities of a great book, suspense, mystery, betrayal, and love. If you have been with Brian and Jenny from the beginning then you will know what Brian will do to keep Jenny safe. Will he be successful? Will there be a happy ending? I hope you enjoy the series as I did.

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series, #2) by Bea Stevens – Review by Sheri Schrader

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series #2)Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens is the second book in the Liberty Lawrence series .The trials and tribulations of Libby continues in this fun book. She is now working as a reporter for the Daily Chronicle but is having a hard time getting into the system at work. Her boss runs everywhere and she is not feeling very welcome.
I am glad to read about Libby again. She is full of fashion and has a habit of falling into odd situations. This is a fun read that had me laughing at the exploits. This can be read as a standalone but trust me start with book one to get the back story of the characters. The characters are more developed in this book and have all grown on me. Also, the story flows and moves quickly. This is a great read to get away from the everyday. I look forward to more Liberty Lawrence in the future.

Eight Steps: A Friends to Lovers Romance by Taylor Sullivan – Review by Moriah Venable

Eight Steps to Alpha (Nerdy by Nature, #1)Eight Steps to Alpha by Taylor Sullivan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Eight Steps is a novel by Taylor Suillivan. This is my first novel by this author.

Best friends Elliot and Fe have been friends for five years. Elliot is considered a nerd who loves video games.

What happened when Elliot asks Fe to help him get a girl? Will sparks fly?

I really enjoyed this novel. It was a fun and cute story and very refreshing from the other novels in this genre.

I usually read the lead female having the makeover and it was a change for the male lead to be having the makeover.

I loved the progression from friends to realizing there might be something more between them.

For anyone looking for a cute fast read, I recommended this novel.

Best Foot Forward (The Liberty Lawrence Series, #1) by Bea Stevens – Review by Sheri Schrader

Best Foot ForwardBest Foot Forward by Bea Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Best Foot Forward by Bea Stevens is the The Liberty Lawrence Series . Liberty aka Libby is a fun, fashionista who works in a hotel. What happens when there is a theft and she has a possible suspect in mind? In steps a handsome officer working the case that she finds herself being attracted to more and more. This is a cute, lighthearted story. If you are label conscious you will find that you are familiar with the brands that she is mentioning. Despite that I find Libby to be a fun character. This story made me laugh which I really enjoyed. There are some silly escapades but I grew to care about what would happen with Libby. Also, when I finished the book I was already wanting to jump to the next book.

Shattered LoveShattered Love by Nivia Borell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to say that I was completely intrigued with Shattered Love by Nivia Borell. I knew the minute I read the synopsis, that I needed to know more about it and it’s characters. I loved every aspect of this book, including Bria’s heart break. You see, it’s those experiences that mold you. And with her, it was the journey that she had to take in order to get where she needed to be. I was captivated with the story from the beginning up to the very end. I loved the emotional roller coaster that I went through. I was definitely impressed with this author and her ability to create a beautiful story!
