Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley is a wonderfully written Book that once I started reading I couldn’t put it down till the end.

In this book we get Trev and Jules, she’s a workaholic who needs protection and he’s a former Navy Seal. Will he be able to protect her? What does their future look like? Find out what happens next in this absolute must read. I also recommend reading the first four books in this series as well. It’s a series I know I’m going to read again and again.

Phoebe Alexander is one of my go-to authors! You can never go wrong at one of her reads being absolutely captivating that will keep you on your toes and have you turning the pages until the very end!

A Sun So Bright (Reigning Hearts Book Three) by KG Fletcher – Review by Karyn Taylor

A Sun So Bright (Reigning Hearts, #3)A Sun So Bright by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Sun So Bright is the 3rd book in the outstanding Reigning Hearts Series by K.G. Fletcher. Fletcher is an author that I have come to love in the last year and is now way up on my list of favourite authors. Her ability to write a heart-wrenching romance blows my mind and this book exceeded my expectations.
We first me the heroine of this book, Fiona Merrill, in the first book in the series Run To The Sea. At this point in time she didn’t do herself any favours and came across as a stuck up rich girl. Also her actions in this book had the reader hating her. I was kind of worried how K.G. Fletcher would get the reader to love Fiona’s character but I shouldn’t have worried at all. Fletcher is a master at writing amazing characters. In this book we get to see the real Fiona, the sad, lonely woman hiding behind all the riches that money can buy. But she wants what money can’t buy and that is love and happiness.
After hiring hot bartender Chris Ballard to play her boyfriend we really get to see the real Fiona. She’s actually a very sweet, loving, loyal person. I loved the relationship between her and Chris. So of their interactions are hilarious as he tries to break down the ice queen.
As with all of her books, I was pulled right into this story straight away and was gripped the whole way through. This book will take you on a long and twisting roller coaster of emotions and you just might need some tissues to get you through some parts. I certainly did!! This book just had all the feels! I was totally hooked.
I hope that K.G. Fletcher gives us more from the Reigning Hearts Series as I’ve loved this series so much.

Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley

5-Stars

Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley is an excellent, fast paced, action filled, romance. It has an excellent storyline and plot. The climax was amazing and I love how the author wrapped it up. Jules and Trev are the main characters of this novel. Jules story was shocking and tragic when it was revealed later in the book. I was in tears after finding out how and why she lost her memory following a boating accident at a young age. Jules was amazing and I loved how smart she was. The things she had accomplished with her career were inspiring. Trev was also an inspirational character as well. I love that he taught self-defense classes for women in honor of his mother. Despite his tragic and painful youth, he grew into a strong, educated, and fun protector. I loved this book and I highly recommend it.

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Jennifer Gordon

The Fat Girl's Guide to Loving Your BodyThe Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
5 +++ Stars
Wow, just Wow, I really felt like this book, this author was really talking straight too me! K.L. Montgomery who refers to herself as Krista in her book is a ‘Kindred Spirit’. This is definitely not just another self-help book, it is much more than that, if like the blurb says, “Do you wonder if you’ll ever be happy with your body? then I recommend this book.
It is written in the first person almost as though Krista is talking to you personally, just chatting as friends as it has a casual feel to the writing which I liked and felt was right for this book. The book is divided into bite size chapters with clear headings and each one deals with a particular subject at the end of each chapter is a journaling assignment for the reader to work on.
Krista introduces us to ‘Journaling’ in an early chapter and this is what makes this book unique, as it is gives the book an interactive feel and gets us, as the reader involved and thinking about our own experiences and how we can change for the better. Krista is very clear throughout the book that, “it’s indeed your mind that needs to change, not your body”. “IT IS NOT YOUR JOB TO BE PRETTY” is another saying which is repeated throughout the book. She reaffirms her positive sayings throughout the book.
Krista talks us through ‘deprogramming’ in one chapter and she introduces us to ‘Body Positivity or ‘BoPo’ as she refers to it. I love the fact that Krista is honest and talks openly about her own experiences which made me feel as though I was not alone in my thinking and that someone felt the same, this kept me engaged in the book from beginning to end and I read it in hours not days.
I have also referred back to certain chapters and feel that having read it cover to cover the use of easily identified chapters means the parts that are specific to you, you can refer back to. I love the fact that at then end you can download and print a certificate to, “remind yourself of your commitment to loving your body”. You can also join Krista’s ‘Fat Girl Tribe’, on Facebook and the book ends with a section of daily ‘BoPo’ Meditations which enables the reader to continue their journey, each day has an affirmation to be read and reflected on.
As Krista observes at the end of her book, changing ones mindset and learning to love your body is not an overnight thing. The, “meditations are meant to keep your focus on all things body positive”. I could go on raving about this book for hours but really you need to read it for yourselves to understand how inspirational Krista is and how her advice in this book can really help you.
Therefore I can not recommend this book highly enough, a definite must read for anyone wanting to achieve a more positive body image!
So if as the blurb says, “Have you ever struggled to love your body? then yes I definitely agree that, “YES “YOU NEED THIS BOOK. NOW”!

Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash Book 2) By Amanda Marin – Review by Sheri Schrader

Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash, #2)Sky to Sea by Amanda Marin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sky to Sea by Amanda Marin is the second book in the Crimson Sash series. This is a wonderful YA/dystopian story with the main characters, Neve Hall and Micah Ward. Neve and Micah are trying to prove themselves in the New Republic so they can gain citizenship. But the best things are not always easy. The two are quickly put to the test amid the New Republic and the Nations relationship becoming explosive. I highly recommend reading the books in order to get the full story and enjoyment out of this series. This is well written and the characters are great. I really want to know more of Neve and Micah’s story and am awaiting the next book in the series.

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is by Jacquie Biggar

5 Stars

Not sure why but this is my first book by this author and I loved it. I love a break sometimes from the heavy drama and the too hot scenes, not that I don’t love those too but this story was refreshing while still being very emotional, and I enjoyed every single word. I love this author’s style of writing, very smooth and easy to read.

I have 4 daughters, and although I’ve never dealt with this sort of conflict described in this story I’ve seen many others play out over the years and this book felt so real. The conversations felt real, the feelings were described in a way that made me feel them. I seem to gravitate toward the deep family stories lately and the emotions that go with them, this was an amazingly written book and as I said above, not sure why this is my first read by this author, but I can guarantee I have already looked at what else is available and my tbr has grown and I’ll be watching for any and everything from this point on.

Thank you Miss Biggar for keeping it real and allowing me to connect with the characters in this book!

Loved it!!

REBOUND (REWIND BOOK 4) By Rowan Shaw – Review by Katie Kearney

Rebound (Rewind #4)Rebound by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

REBOUND (Rewind Book 4) by Rowan Shaw. This author knows just how to pull me in. I’ve read these in order a while you could read them differently I recommend in order just to enhance the reading experience of this series. This author knows how to write a story that grips readers. I’ve loved every book in this series and this one was just as amazing. The characters are complex and relatable I was completely drawn into their story I just didn’t want to leave. There’s so much emotion written into the words and I felt it all. The characters captured a piece of my heart and I’ll never get it back nor do I want it back, because I truly felt a connection with each character in different ways. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. It’s a bit different and I loved every minute of it. Five stars all the way and highly recommended. Can’t wait to see where the author takes readers next.
