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!

MaddJax Series, Boxed Series Set, Book One & Book Two: A Second Chance Stepbrother/co-CEO Romance by Deborah Ann is a contemporary romance. This boxed set is a fully engulfed read that will take you in depth into a complicated relationship into what some may tag as taboo or illicit.

In the process of reading this story, the author takes the reader on an incredible journey along with Maddison and Jaxon – learning the past and how it’s impacted the present, along with where do these individuals go moving forward noting they are so inexplicable tied together in multiple ways. 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.

Evolution: Awakening (An Ash Kyndal Novel) by Hope Anika is a romantic suspense. The author keeps a steady full-speed ahead pace throughout this story from the character introductions to the story line to the stream of events that unfold. This novel is loaded with elements that take charge and bring forth unexpected chains of events starting at the very beginning of this epic book.

I enjoyed the mystery and unknown as they fell apart in the story, it kept me engaged, enthralled and wanting more.

The Vampire Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 3) by Brandi Elledge – Review by Heather Bahm

The Vampire Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 3)The Vampire Queen by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Vampire Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 3) by Brandi Elledge is the next amazing book in this remarkable series. Each book builds upon the overall story/theme of the series and is exquisitely written. The Vampire Queen is Stephan and Tandi’s story, as supporting characters in previous book(s), I couldn’t wait to read this next epic tale to include Stephan who has captivated my attention from the first book. As we delver more and more into the overall paranormal dynamic of this world, more truths, lies, and unknowns are discovered. I could not put down this story as Brandi Elledge has built such an unbelievable sequences of events that you had to immediately unfold to see what was around the next corner. There are hilarious and serious moments in this novel and Tandi is by far such a fearless female lead with her strong personality. I applaud the author and am anxiously awaiting the next book(s) in this amazing series!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Past Storm and Fire by Christy Nicholas was a riveting read that will embark upon the realms of expectation and more. The imagery was remarkably well done and I loved how the Val’s writing takes on a life of its own while her own life begins shifting further. This story draws the reader into its pages while Val and her own character(s) embark upon their own journeys. The writing was on point and the emotional attributes hit at the pivotal moments, right where they should. Chapter to chapter, you will drawn further into the story until you crest into the final chapter(s). Truly addictive with passionately written characters with aspects between the past and present that were amazing. Recommend this book!

Perfectly Played by Holly Kerr – Review by Heather Bahm

Perfectly PlayedPerfectly Played by Holly Kerr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Perfectly Played by Holly Kerr is a sports themed romantic comedy. A story of coincidences and second chances with fate playing a grand hand. Holly Kerr delivers an enchanting story when life doesn’t go exactly as planned with a group of characters that are rife with hilarious conversations and acts. Who wouldn’t laugh at half the stuff that occurs in this story?! I loved Dean and Flora in this novel and felt that they each grew from where they began at the start. There were definitely a couple characters I wanted to toss in a box and throw out because they were just drove me to feel that way; however, they added much needed dimension to the story and provided those characters that you love to hate! Perfectly Played was a great story and followed along with the sport theme that carried with the characters perfectly!

Fictional-ish by Natalina Reis – Review by Heather Bahm

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fictional-ish by Natalina Reis is a romantic comedy. This story is the epitome of the story of friends and life shifts the dynamic of their relationship, whether for better or worse. I found the opening scenes in this story to be wonderfully set and certainly the right essence to pull the reader into the story to find out what happens to the characters as they progress chapter to chapter. Kyle and Livie had such a fun friendship/relationship in this story and I loved the creative ways the author drove into that. However, no story is ever easy and there is definitely drama and unexpected events that occur that shift the story in a direction no one anticipated. Grab this story and delve into whether Kyle and Livie’s friendship can survive or if everything will be left behind.
