Salty SebastianSalty Sebastian by Jen Luerssen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Salty Sebastian (Smirk Series book 3) by Jen Luerssen is a contemporary romance/comedy that will knock your socks off. If you haven’t read a book by this author, you are absolutely in for a treat and this particularly story is a deliciously salty addition. The characters in this story overlap with ones that appeared earlier in the series. However, you can read this as a stand alone. The characters are a riot, highly entertaining and will constantly have you wondering what is going to fall out of their mouths next. Sebastian is an amazing and I just wanted to hug him in half of this story, then Kit is just a spicy addition that makes you want to lather them up together to find out what kind of combination you get with them. Hilarious, great writing and will having you laughing throughout!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Out of the Box Collection by Jennifer Theriot includes three romantically themed novels in this series. This was an enchanting set of stories that pull you into the depth of the stories and the development of the characters from the beginning. Highs and lows are bundled within the story line and take the reader on an emotional charged journey. The story flows effortlessly from the first to the second book and then to the final and third story. I absolutely enjoyed the characters as they battled through obstacles and circumstances working towards where they each ultimately come to within the final story. Beautifully written by a talented author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unraveled by Aubrey Bondurant is a contemporary romance. This novel was beyond amazing and one of the best that I have read this year!! High emotions, up/down, and all over the place will occur within this story. There is a storm embarking that will shake the cast of characters to the core and how they move to overcome will determine the direction this story will take. Layla and Kellan hold a special place in my heart after reading this remarkable novel. Holy smokes, Aubrey Bondurant has created a powerful story full of heart, soul, and more. Nothing is held back and it was so beautifully done, even the moments when the story brings you to tears. Loved it!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dracones Guardian (Dracones Book 6) by Sheri-Lynn Marean is a paranormal fantasy that continues into the Dracones series. This story held the perfect mix of suspenseful elements. Zander and Chloe were an interesting collaboration in this story that kept me entertained and fully engrossed in this novel. Anticipation was high in this story wondering which direction was going to unfold next. Excellently written along with the fantastic story line and entertaining while including the danger lurking. Sheri-Lynn Marean has outdone herself in this particular story compared to the previous one(s) that I have read in this series. Amazing imagery, character dynamic and story telling.

Tracking Numbers (Lost Boys MC BOOK 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker – Review by Heather Bahm

Tracking NumbersTracking Numbers by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tracking Numbers (Lost Boys MC BOOK 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker is an excellently written romantic suspense. Tracker is the male hero of this story with his rough edges and his take on brotherhood.
He reeks of sexual appeal and there is no denying he has it in spades. He’s willing to do what is needed and required to protect his brotherhood and that’s certainly part of the theme in this story.
Then there is Kerri, who wants nothing to do with her father or his life, but can she truly walk away from it without any repercussions? Kerri in her own right is a strong and independent woman and he character makes me laugh and root for her within in story. Mixing together Tracker and Kerri created an off the charts chemistry that is undeniable. Holy hotness overload! The first book in this series has set the bar high, I cannot wait to see what the author delivers next in this series and more of the Lost Boys.

The Arrangement Duet Box Set by Madison Quinn – Review by Heather Bahm

The Arrangement Duet Box SetThe Arrangement Duet Box Set by Madison Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Arrangement Duet Box Set by Madison Quinn is a contemporary romance. This set includes On His Terms and On Her Terms. Overall, this is a great duet by the author and a truly enjoyable read. In the first book, we are introduced to the characters including Nicholas and Kenzie. These characters are likable though they each are flawed in their own unique ways. The way they cross paths in the story was creative and realistic, while it seems some sort of fate intervenes at key moments. There is drama that adds into the dynamics of the story to give some additional depth and edge. The story may seem fast paced, at times, but it works. Nothing in life is ever easy, those things that are truly valuable are worth more than their weight in gold.

Wild BastardWild Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wild Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel by India Kells is a page turning romantic suspense. I instantly devoured this story as the author released this next story in the Dark Sparrow series. The writing is exciting and highly entertaining. Isabel and Kai are magnetic in this story and I couldn’t tear my attention away from them. Their previous history set the pages on fire along with their present interactions as they unfolded. The suspense and character portrayals were excellently written and kept the high energy continuous from start to beginning. The pace of the story was steady with some fast paced sequences falling exactly where needed. A great addition to the series with an amazing cast of characters.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Alex: An Eidolon Black Ops Novel by Maddie Wade is a romantic suspense. This story could be read as a stand alone, but I would highly recommend also reading the numerous other stories by Maddie Wade as there are several secondary characters that are outstanding on their own. For Alex: An Eidolon Black Ops Novel, this story focuses on Alex and Evelyn where there is danger lurking while they try to come to grips with the past and how its impacted each of their lives. I really enjoyed to see the overlapping of characters into this story and liked the story line/plot that Maddie introduced for these particular characters. It was exhilarating, heart-racing energy that came through the story and quickly turned this into a page-turner. Each suspense delivered by this author is amazing!

A great read that I recommend to others.

Say Something by Jennifer L. Allen – Review by Heather Bahm

Say SomethingSay Something by Jennifer L. Allen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Say Something by Jennifer L. Allen is a second chance contemporary romance. This story if rife with emotional triggers and is so raw at times you can virtually feel the characters as they battle their demons. I found the hometown environment of this story touching and realistic. This story encounters topics so true in everyday life and the author tackled those items with finesse. Jessie and Danny are the epitome of sweethearts but life delivers a fatal blow which shattered their relationship. Yet, life/fate has some of it’s own to deliver and watching that fall into the story was beautifully done. The characters were each well written and full of depth which a great cast of secondary characters.
