Burning Britely by Deidre Huesmann – Review by Heidi Eich Woodring

Burning BritelyBurning Britely by Deidre Huesmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Burning Britely by Deidre Huesmann is a coming of age Male/Male young adult LGBT romance. A shorter read, but does not take away the impact of the book or subject of the book. I think Huesmann has written a book that adults, teens, and tweens could learn a lot from. From the two main characters questioning their place in this world to bringing to life what many are facing in high school as they grow and find just who they are becoming. I highly recommend this book and give it a BRIGHT FIVE STAR rating.
Jeff is your local high school outcast who is selected to be the tutor to Braeden, the local popular and town athletic star. What both don’t see in the beginning is that through this tutoring a friendship between them develops. As they both grow closer, Jeff sees that there is more beneath of the surface of what Braeden shows everyone. Even worse, Jeff starts to fall for the VERY STRAIGHT star of the town and school.
This raw and real book is part one in a two book series and I for one cannot wait to dive into the next one!

The Case of Missing Books (Summer McCloud paranormal mystery Book 6)The Case of Missing Books by Nikki Broadwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Case of the Missing Books (Summer McCloud paranormal mystery Book 6) by Nikki Broadwell is a supernatural mystery book that had me hooked from Chapter One. This is the first time I have read this series and the first time I have read anything from this author. I will say it can be read as a standalone but I do plan now to read the rest of the series. Nikki Broadwell gave us an amazing character that you grow to care for and an amazing story line that has the twists and turns that I love. I highly recommend this book, charged with intense scenes and details that will have readers wanting and needing more.

Summer is hired to help find a shelf of missing books and she is thrown into a world of darkness with a path of twists and turns which include her past. During her search she often asks herself, why are these books so important and why would someone want to steal them. During her investigation she discovers tunnel underneath that leads to many stores including her Tarot and Tea store. As she runs down leads, can Summer wrap her mind around escaping and that the answer could be written in the very books she is trying to find.

Little Do You Know (Bayou Devils MC Book 5), by A.M. Myers is another amazing book in an amazing series. Noah, jailed simply wants his freedom and wants the girl that captured his heart years ago. In 6th grade, Kady and Noah met, years went by and they were engaged to be married. On Noah’s last run for the Bayou Devils, things go wrong, and he is arrested and sentenced to 7 years in prison. A simple run to gain money for a future with his love, turned into the worse nightmare. In the seven years he spent jailed, Noah never heard one word from Kady, and each day he knows in his heart she is not dead and she would never simply walk out on him and the love they share. Once his freedom is given to him, he knows he needs help finding Kady and he also knows his brothers will help in that search. Little do any of them know the hell that Kady endured for 7 years, but the journey in this book is filled with love, suspense, heartache and such loyalty. (I want to be careful of spoilers)

A.M. Myers again gave us a story that we are able to get lost in, and really feel like we are in the middle of the story and surrounded by Bayou Devils. You feel the emotion, you hear the roar of the motorcycles, and you sense the brotherhood as you read about this MC. This intense story and even more intense characters will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat, turning pages till you feel and know the story of Kady and Noah! Another five star read in series that has climbed to be a favorite MC series.

Feathers - A NovelFeathers – A Novel by Kylie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Feathers: A Novel by Kylie Stewart is an amazing story with such a journey that has left a mark in my mind and my heart. Charlotte has endured so much in her life, so much pain, loneliness, due to her mothers boyfriend that sold her for drugs. A gang kept her for a year, treating her so horribly and finally she was sold and was able to escape the hell she endured. Being free Charlotte vowed and made a promise to herself to never love a man, and then Hawk comes into her life. They both find trusting each other easy, after both having issues and fears. As time goes by, the passion, the caring, and the trusting builds. But both being jaded, the questions will raise, can they overcome the past to lead to a beautiful future together.

This 5 star read was intense, emotional, dark, and one that I SIMPLY LOVED and did not want to put it down. The journey both take was real and so raw. From the dark subjects, to the passion, to the steamy scenes, I just wanted to stay lost in the land of Hawk and Charlotte. Kylie Stewart really gave us a read that will leave its mark. The characters, the meaning of feathers, the story line simply are SUPERB! I will be waiting and watching for WINGS!!!

Edward now must take decide if he ruins his career to bring justice to the one he loved and along the way finds he’s not the only one who wants justice for these killings.

This Novella was really a way to get into Edward more, and he is a character that has stayed with me since reading the Ash Park series. Being able to read what drove him and his need for justice kept me still wanting more and more. Meghan O’FLynn truly is an amazing story teller, attention to detail, and her words that drag you right into story and don’t let you go. She kept me guessing to the very end and again we learn that in Ash Park not everyone is innocent!!! Five stars again!!!

Beneath the Surface (A Gray Ghost Novel 3) by Amy Mckinley – Review by Heidi Eich Woodring

Beneath the Surface (Gray Ghost #3)Beneath the Surface by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beneath the Surface, book three in the Gray Ghost novel series, by Amy McKinley. This amazing read was filled with love, suspense, and mystery in one. From page one till the end the book kept me engaged and I did not want to put it down. The main characters, Hannah and Jack were such a delight to read about. Hannah, strong and independent to Jack who shows that he truly wants to help those that feel lost and so alone.

Hannah finds herself and her boss on a hijacked plane carrying a secret weapon, finally sees that this is her time to no longer be a sleeper agent. Mike, who is on a mission to recover the weapon refuses to leave his ex Hannah behind. So many things point to Hannah being a traitor Jack must decide whom to trust but in the end it could be his career that he kills.

This book kept me guessing till the last page and I love that about this series and this author. McKinleys books have always been ones that I needed and wanted to finish in one sitting. I give this read 5 stars and highly recommend this book and her whole series!

Perilous Confessions (The Possession Chronicles Book One) by Carrie Dalby – Review By Heidi Eich Woodring

Perilous Confessions (The Possession Chronicles Book 1)Perilous Confessions by Carrie Dalby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Perilous Confessions (The Possession Chronicles Book One) by Carrie Dalby is the first book i have read by this author and I was not disappointed in any way. This Gothic Romance pulled me right on with amazing storyline, strong characters, and so many secrets that are lurking everywhere. The ups and downs mixed with such emotional truly grab a reader. The author did an amazing job grabbing the reader’s from the get go to the very end of this book.

Parents and family always want what is best for their children but even then it does not always mean its best for them and their happiness. Alex and Lucy both are dealing with this and once they come together in this book you are shown an era that is filled with sadness, guilt, love, passion in the deep south. So much can happen when a young lawyer and aspiring novelist are lead by desire and love, and show the families that surround them, that they are each other’s happiness

I give this book 4 stars and so can not wait to read the next one in this amazing series! .
