Fierce Emotions (Marcy Series Book 8) by Linda Burson – Review By Felicia Bates

Fierce EmotionsFierce Emotions by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fierce Emotions is the eighth book in Linda Burson’s Marcy series and as a result is at least the eighth book I’ve read by this author. Just this fact alone should clue you in to how amazing Linda Burson’s writing is. It’s not often a series has kept my attention this long. If you haven’t been following along with this series, do yourself a favor and start at the very beginning with book one because you have a lot of catching up to do!
Marcy is an incredible character and I have loved the growth as she navigates unique twists and turns of life. As always this book had me feeling several ways and left me wanting more. Another hit out of the park from Linda Burson.

Edge of the Storm by Lisette Kristensen is a fast paced, action packed novella that truly did grab me right away. I enjoyed the strong female roles in the story and felt that the story unfolded very well. Despite being a short read, it was really descriptive and satisfying and I loved how it all came together at the end. The ending left me to question if there is more to come yet I was satisfied either way. I would definitely be interested in reading more from Lisette Kristensen, it was definitely an exciting read.

Death and the Crone: Book Three of the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie – Review by Felicia Bates

Death and the Crone (Lucky Devil Series Book 3)
Megan Mackie
4 stars

Death and the Crone is not the first book I’ve read in Megan Mackie’s Lucky Devil Series but if desired I believe this installment could be read on it’s own with little or no difficulty.
I most enjoyed Death and the Crone because of the break from a stereotypical storyline/main character. Instead of being young and easily desirable, Margaret is older with a much more colorful past. This book had me intrigued from
start to finish with a rocky road of action and adventure. While I did mention I believed this book could be read as a stand alone, I recommend reading the other books in the series before it as well for a bigger picture. I’ve truly learned to appreciate Megan Mackie’s style of writing and I’m looking forward to reading more.

Misfortune of Vision (Druid’s Brooch Book 4) by Christy Nicholas – Review by Felicia Bates

Christy Nicholas
4 out of 5

First and foremost, I absolutely love the cover of this novel. While it’s much like those in the rest of the series the colors to me, are gorgeous.
Moving on, I’ve come to expect rich, vivid storytelling from Christy Nicholas. Typically my genre of choice is a thriller of some sort so the Druid’s Brooch series is a testament to how addictive great writing can be. While these books don’t need to be read in order (I actually bounce from book to boom) I have been invested in seeing if the next book really does beat the one before it. If you are interested in historical writing and a mix with fantasy I would recommend giving this book a go.

Next Door Knight (Man’s Best Friend Book 2) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Felicia Bates

Next Door Knight (Man's Best Friend #2)Next Door Knight by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Next Door Knight is the first book I’ve read in Nicole Flockton’s Man’s Best Friend Series. I wouldn’t categorize myself as a dog lover but there was something about this story that was really appealing.
Next Door Knight is a sweet, light hearted read with characters that will steal your heart.
I felt like the story was well written and easy to follow with great character development and several moments that made me smile.
I would definitely be open to reading more in this series and more work from Nicole Flockton in general.

4 out of 5 stars

Minx is my first experience with Maggie Adams’ writing but likely not my last. This was a rather short book but it wasn’t short on laughs or keeping my interest. I was completely interested in this story when I read the funny, light hearted synopsis and I’m pleased to say the book roped me in just as quickly.
If you’re looking for a fast read that is humorous and relatable, give Minx a go.

5 out of 5 stars

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was to read Hawk’s story. I have read every book in the Gray Ghost series thus far and just when you think they can’t get any better, Amy McKinley out does herself once again.

Vantage Point has everything I’ve come to love and expect from Amy McKinley’s writing, action, suspense, romance wrapped into a fast paced story you don’t want to put down.

I highly recommend this book, this author and this series, it has been the most memorable set of books I’ve read in a long time.

Turning the Tide (Eastern Shore Swingers Book 5) by Phoebe Alexander – Review By Felicia Bates

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Turning the Tide (Eastern Swingers Book 5)
Phoebe Alexander
5 out of 5 Stars

Turning the Tide is another perfect addition to the Eastern Swingers series. Phoebe Alexander has once again delivered a page turning story with captivating characters and a rich storyline. It is hard for me to put into words just how Turning the Tide (and the rest of the Eastern Swingers series) makes me feel. Phoebe Alexander is incredibly talented in her writing with a clear goal to deliver body positive as well as sex positive stories that leave you feeling like you met several new friends in these characters and said friends just “get” you.
While sexy like all of Phoebe Alexander’s writing, Turning the Tide tackles adult issues that in many circles are taboo to talk about, alternative lifestyles, abuse, infidelity (to name a few) in a way that is comfortable and intriguing. I can’t stress enough that you should read ALL of the Eastern Swingers series, preferably in order. It is not necessary, in fact I’ve jumped around a bit but each book gets better than the last and seeing how each character’s lives are woven into each other’s is a fun addition to the storylines. As always, I look forward to reading more from Phoebe Alexander.

Flirty Dancing: A Spicy Romantic Comedy About the Afterlife (Green Room Chronicles Book 3) by J.D. Frettier- Review By Felicia Bates

Flirty Dancing: A Spicy Romantic Comedy About the Afterlife
(Green Room Chronicles Book 3)
J.D Frettier
5 out of 5 stars

If you are looking for a short, fun, unique story then Flirty Dancing is the pick for you. On that note, if you haven’t already read the first two books in J.D Frettier’s Green Room Chronicles, do that first!
Each book is short and can be read as a stand alone but the stories mean more when you’ve already had a glimpse into the past of characters in the first two books. I promise once you read the first, you’ll want to read the rest immediately.
I don’t even know where to start on the book itself, Flirty Dancing has a bit of everything, it’s hilarious and naughty but there is real emotion mixed in making characters relatable. I can’t recommend this book enough and I really hope there will be more Green Room Chronicles to come.

LOVE on the LINE, A Great Expectations Love Story: The Graykens, Book 2 by Laurie Lewis – Review by Felicia Bates

Love on the Line (Great Expectations Love Stories: The Graykens Book 2)
Laurie Lewis
5 out of 5 stars

Love on the Line is the sequel to the heart tugging, Love on a Limb. Without question I NEEDED to read this book, Love on a Limb left such a lasting impression, I smiled, I cried, truly one of the best books I’ve ever read. That being said, I was a bit fearful that Love on the Line would not live up to my expectations. Fortunately, Laurie Lewis’ writing shines bright once again in another unforgettable read about Mikaela and Matthew. The characters are heartwarming and the type that you find yourself completely rooting for. The storyline is rich and emotional, I can’t write a review that would give this story justice. Wonderful!
