A.M Myers
4 out of 4 stars

Little Do You Know is book number 5 in A.M Myers’ Bayou Devils MC Series. While it wasn’t my favorite installment in the series so far, it still made for a really good read, touching all bases I’ve come to expect from A.M. Myers.
As always, A.M Myers delivers a fast paced, book with a good mix of fast paced action and page turning romance that I would most definitely recommend to others.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Keith Nixon
4 out of 5 stars

I’m a sucker for a good thriller so I was really excited to find a new to me author that not only promises to deliver a thrilling story, but introduces me to a new series as well.
The synopsis of Dig Two Graves had my curiosity immediately, the story itself took a bit for me to warm up to. When all is said and done, I feel like Keith Nixon did a fantastic job with crafting an exciting storyline with really strong, complex characters.
Keith Nixon was able to present a plot with several dark issues without overdoing it in a fast paced, entertaining manner. This is an author I really am looking forward to reading more of, I will continue on with this series!

Coming Home: The Sequel to Flowers In December by Jane Suen – Review By Felicia Bates

COMING HOME (Flowers in December, #2)COMING HOME by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Coming Home
Jane Suen
5 out of 5 stars

  1. I feel like all of my reviews on Jane Suen’s writing are always the same. Jane Suen is a captivating storyteller with a voice that is soft and almost poetic to me. There has never been a piece of writing that I’ve read by this author and didn’t love, despite them all being so different.
    Until reading Coming Home, I thought Flowers in December was my favorite. This book exceeded all of my expectations! I loved being reunited
    with characters from the first book and seeing where life has taken Connor and Tom!
    As always, I’ll be keeping an eye out for more form Jane Suen.

WTF, God: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onourah – Review By Felicia Bates

Wtf, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition
Michelle N. Onuorah
4 out of 5 stars

I wouldn’t necessarily call myself religious and there are times I’m not even sure I’m spiritual so it may come as a surprise that this book had me completely drawn to it the moment I stumbled across it. Michelle N. Onuorah delivered a fantastic story about faith, triumph and life at the just the right time in my own. I’ve recently been trying to adopt the mindset that everyone I meet has their own set of troubles and life tests and it isn’t my job or business to compare or judge what is hard for others. From the unapologetic forward of this book to the very end, Michelle N. Onuorah had my ear. I really enjoyed this short, inspirational read.

Broken Sand Dollar
(The Sand Dollar Series Book 3)
J D Boudreaux
5 out of 5 stars

I was first introduced to J.D Boudreaux’s writing when I stumbled across the beautiful cover art of Wish I Had a Nickel. At the time I had read that novel I had somehow missed it was the second in a series. While some aspects left me curious what I was missing, I was really captivated by J.D Boudreaux’s storytelling and loved the story regardless. That being said, since this is a series meant be read in order I highly recommend starting at the beginning for the full picture.
I felt that Broken Sand Dollar was a fantastic ending to a unique storyline. I tend to feel that so many romances are typical and predictable, J.D Boudreaux crafted a series with heart warming characters, great twists, and raw emotion that felt new and refreshing to me. This is definitely an author I will keep a lookout for.

Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2)
Sacha T.Y. Fortune
5 out of 5 stars

Pandora’s Poison is the page turning, second book in the Hart and Cole series. I really enjoyed the second installment in this series, even more than Climbing the Walls. I would recommend reading these books in order to get a full picture of the storyline and to get to know the characters in depth. This series has done an excellent job drawing me in and showing the complexities of adult relationships.
Without ruining the story at all it’s difficult to write a review that does this story justice. The characters are raw and real and the story has so much emotion behind it. I’m truly looking forward to reading on in the series. Pandora’s Poison is definitely a 5 star read and the Hart & Cole series is definitely something you won’t want to miss out on.

Amy McKinley
5 out of 5 stars

Beneath the Surface is the third book in Amy McKinley’s Gray Ghost series, the books read well as standalone stories but I would recommend reading them all just to get the most of this incredible series. Amy McKinley had me
hooked on her writing by the very first installment, she has a talent for creating fast paced stories with great characters and non stop excitement. Beneath the Surface fulfills my expectation of an action packed romantic story, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great read, or even a series that gets better with each book.

Climbing the Walls book 1 Hart & Cole Series
Sacha T.Y. Fortune
5 out of 5 stars
Climbing the Walls is a bit longer than books I’ve been reading as of late but it was well worth my time. I was drawn to this book, and new to me
author because the premise of the story seemed realistic but different than most books I read.
Honestly, Sacha T. Y Fortune did not disappoint.
Climbing the Walls kept my attention from beginning to end with characters that truly highlighted the complexities of marriage. The plot flowed well with twists and turns that took me on a rollercoaster of emotion. I’m really looking forward to reading on in the Hart & Cole series.

Shadow’s Keep
Meghan O’Flynn
5 out of 5 stars

Shadow’s Keep is not the first book I’ve read by this author and most certainly will not be my last. My genre of choice is a good thriller and let me just say Meghan O’Flynn has writing a good thriller down to a science!
The plot twists and turns were heart pounding and I can tell you with complete honesty I did not have this one figured out.
There is so much I want to say about this book yet I am completely speechless. If you like dark, twisted, suspenseful stories then this book, this author is for you. 5 stars for sure!

The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe – Review By Felicia Bates

The Memory of UsThe Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been hooked on Lisa Sorbe’s writing since the first page of the first book in her Prairie Tales series. Needless to say when I saw a book I haven’t read written by her I pounced without giving it a second thought.

The Memory of Us has everything I have come
to love in Lisa Sorbe’s writing. The story itself is emotional without becoming too overpowering, it is real and raw. Elena is a strong, admirable character that makes the story unforgettable.

The Memory of Us was a book that hooked me
from the start and kept my interest to the very last
line. I am looking forward to more to come from Lisa Sorbe. This is definitely another 5 star read I would highly recommend to others.
