My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love (To Love a Sportsman Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes is a sports romance. This story features two characters that each have a past that has shaped how they handle and approach their present. Mathew is a star on and off the field, but when life deals him a hand he doesn’t exactly want, we follow how he takes this turn of events and maneuvers these. Rose is cautious in almost all things and the way she holds herself, separates her from so many others. This makes her shine so brightly and it is about to shift both her world and Mathew’s full tilt! This story was a great read and Pamela Q. Fernandes is a talented author!

Girl TrapGirl Trap by Cynthia Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Girl Trap (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 3) by Cynthia Hamilton is part of a series that is a must read in your summer “To Read” collection. Each book in this series adds additional depth and dynamic to Madeline and the mysterious events that embark within her life. This story may be longer than some, but at the same time it makes for a solid read that will keep your mind engaged giving more than some of the shorter mysteries that are out there. Prior to this series, I hadn’t previously read a book by this author and she has absolutely brought a new appreciation to this genre which is not normally my cup of tea. Girl Trap was a great read as Madeline and Mike’s journeys take them in directions unexpected.

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Heather Bahm

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)Wayward by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari is a romantic suspense by the author that wrote the A Prestian series. I enjoyed that series, but something about this latest book/series has stepped it up further and I loved every minute of what the author provided in this story. The premise of this story, provided in the synopsis, is only the tip of the iceberg for this captivating read. The author digs immediately in delivering epic dialogue and intriguing suspense that speaks to the reader making this story addicting, unable to put it down. The characters were incredible and their “adventures” make this story unforgettable. Via Mari is an excellent author and that talent shines in Wayward.

Dread by Jeff Wade – Review by Heather Bahm

DreadDread by Jeff Wade
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dread by Jeff Wade is a thriller/horror suspense short story. This story was horrific in its telling and my skin still crawls at times. The emotional elements of this story are off the chart and if it doesn’t leave you wondering… well, you haven’t read it thoroughly through. Jeff Wade is a scary writer and doesn’t a chilling job of delivering something that hides in the recesses of the mind that many may wish to avoid.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Brass Compass: A Novel by Ellen Butler is a historical novel entering back during the time of World War II. The spin on this novel is the approach the author took with the novel focused on the heroine: Lily St. James. Ellen Butler was very detailed oriented in this story adding the historical elements into the story line that give the story additional depth along with the strong character development. These parts made the story feel so realistic and truly captivating in reading. The suspense and drama were the epitome of what I was looking for in this novel and the author knocked it out effortlessly. Beautifully written, enjoyed this read.

Saint Code: Lost: Book Four of the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie – Review by Heather Bahm

Saint Code: Lost: Book Four of the Lucky Devil SeriesSaint Code: Lost: Book Four of the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Saint Code: Lost: Book Four of the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie is a dark fantasy read that will take you to the edge of what you imagine is real and then tip you over to further expand your imagination. St. Augustina is the main character of this story, but just like several of the other stories in this series, there are overlapping characters – this particular one focus on the Saints. This story also takes on a slightly different dynamic than the others, but yet, still holds some of the Lucky Devil “feel” that the author has creatively grounded into the foundation of these stories. St. Augustina is a complicated, but unique individual and reading along on this story into the cyber world was entertaining. Megan Mackie is truly a inspiring author in the way she weaves her story lines in and out of what is expected and setting the bar for something challenging and special.
