Scarlet Princess (Lochlann Feuds Book 1) by Robin D. Mahle and Elle Madison – Review by Jade Thomson

Scarlet Princess (The Lochlann Feuds, #1)Scarlet Princess by Robin D. Mahle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Welp. I made the mistake of reading this and not knowing that it’s a spin off of another series that takes place 20ish years before. 😉 It’s a good mistake though because I have more of this world I get to be exposed to from Robin D. Mahle and Elle Madison! (Also the first book I’ve read by them and I’m obsessed with them now) Anyway…. The beginning lured me in and got me good. I love the introduction we got to Rowan! She’s so badass and I love the way she challenges the “norm” (which “norm” for Socarian not for her). Theo is distracting. When I first read his description I spent an embarrassing amount of time daydreaming over him. 😉 The cover is beautiful and eye catching and I AM EAGER for the next one! I’m excited for the other series I missed though! Onto the next 💖

Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling (Stone and Cinder Book 1)Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling by A.L. Morrow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Phew. If y’all thought you were getting a “normal” Cinderella retelling with Entwined- ya wrong! Because that’s what I thought I was getting and I’m so excited by what I got instead. I’m no stranger to MFM romances and this one is spicy and hot! My only complaint is I wish it was longer. I’m excited though because I know there’s more to the series! I really enjoyed the characters (Especially Ashling! What a great name!) The creatures were a great addition to the Cinderella story and I’m eager to see what else A. L. Morrow brings to this world! Check this book out- as long as you’re good with a little debauchery 😉

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another hit for Amy McKinley! As soon as I saw she had a new release I knew I had to read!! I’m a sucker for mafia romance and she sure knows how to deliver. I was sucked in from the beginning and I couldn’t stop consuming this book! I’ve never been a HUGE fan of anything labeled “arranged marriage” and if anyone out there is like me- IGNORE that. It’s so much more. (Also- Max? Swoon worthy!) I won’t spoil anything but 👀🔥💖. (Sometimes I feel emojis express things better than my words can!) I’m excited for the next book! If y’all ain’t read her stuff yet- you’re behind the times! Get it! Onto the next 💖

I’m so glad I picked out this book! I’ve been a fan of Maya Daniels for awhile and I’m a fan of Sylvia Black now too!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this story by Chynna Pace quite a lot! It’s my first by her and I’m eager to read more. The nightmare creatures in this book and the mythology (is that the right term?) around them was fascinating to me! Ive always been a fan of supernatural/paranormal stories and this one really hit the mark. It took me a little bit to get into the characters but I’m excited for the rest of the series! Onto the next! 💖

Unbreakable (The Diamonds, #1)Unbreakable by Tee Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If anyone knows me, they know I’m a SUCKER for any kind of dark, angst-y, moody, sexy bad boy romance. Especially if they are anything like Ripper! This is my first book from Tee Smith and y’all. 👀. This book is *chefs kiss*. It hits all those sweet spots for me. A heroine with secrets- and a smoking hot bad boy who you KNOW has his own secrets and a past of his own just from his description alone! Was I in love with every aspect of their romance? No! And I’m pretty sure we aren’t supposed to be! I can’t wait for the next one and y’all should check it out too! Onto the next! 💖

Forbidden MateForbidden Mate by C.R. Robertson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ya’ll. I gotta be honest. I’m not a huge fan of series where it’s the same main characters throughout the books- but this series is an exception. I LOVE Tasha and Levi’s forbidden love. I’ve always liked supernatural/paranormal/romance books and this is the best of all of those worlds. I really enjoyed the first one and this one is no different! I thought the twists/trials/trouble was interesting in Forbidden Wolf and was wondering if Forbidden Mate would be the same and it was. This is a fantastic series and I am EAGER for the next installment! Onto the next! (:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well. I said on my last review that Hector is my favorite but Kai is a VERY close second. Not only do I love his choice of attire 😉, but I love HIM as well. All these bastards sure are drool worthy. And Isabel did NOT disappoint! She’s a close second favorite to being my favorite main (other than Zoe)! This third book of the series didn’t disappoint and if you’re reading this review- read the damn series! SO GOOD YALL! On to the next! 💖

I’m always LOVING the books India Kells publishes. (I’m saying that after only reading this series but I don’t care!) Its about time Liam gets his own book (I read a brothers name and I’m ready for his book! 😉) Catriona was a different leading lady but I enjoyed her all the same! These brothers get my heart racing and make a girl wish she could step into the Dark Sparrow world! Read the damn series y’all! It’s easily one of my favorites I’ve discovered this year! Onto the next! 💖

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay. Finished this book early this morning. Like the second I woke up I HAD to finish. I really enjoyed the characters from her last book and i LOVED Zoe and Archer even more. Once more the storyline was captivating- there was only a few times I had to take a break from the book. (Definitely made me emotional- that’s as much a spoiler as I’m giving!) This book was even sexier and darker than the last one. Anyone not reading this series is missing out. On to the next! 💖

 

PS. Hector might be my favorite!

So this is my first book/series I’ve read by India Kells and boy… you will experience emotions. I did anyway. The writing is so vivid and easily transported me to her world. Aleksei and Deva both tore at my heart throughout the book. I LOVED their characters and interactions. Lazarus King is a favorite too. Who doesn’t like a silver fox? At least that’s how I imagine him. 🥰 If anyone is looking for a sexy, thrilling, romance- check this out! Onto the next!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A dark fantasy isn’t what I typically read but I’m SO glad I downloaded this! It’s hard to put into words how this book made me feel. The author has a way of creating a world so real I feel as if I am immersed. The depictions and descriptions made this a read I couldn’t get away from, even when I wasn’t actively reading I was imagining this world. I loved it and I’m glad I decided to read this new (to me) author! I will happily read more from them. <3

Honestly. I don’t even know what to say in my reviews sometimes. I really enjoyed this book. I’ve been on a biker kick lately and Manda Mellett delivered another great book! Grumbler has been my favorite biker so far! Being inside his head is funny and this book isn’t short on laughs (although it does have its serious side). Mary is fun to read- a character i can relate to as a mother (even though my kid is younger than Alicia!) This story is another winner in my book!

Okay. I have to be honest- this (to me) is the heaviest book I’ve read by Manda Mellett. It REALLY tore at my emotions. It was a hard read- but only because it was written so vividly. I’ve read a few of Manda Melletts books now and this one has been my favorite by far. I was interested in Nirans story since the first book and I’m so glad I didn’t have to wait TOO long to read his. Saffies character is so well written and easy to relate to- I’m getting chills just typing this. All I can say about that the story without spilling anything is that I’m ready to read part 2…. The ending had me on the EDGE of my seat! Onto the next book y’all!

Being Lost (Satan's Devils MC San Diego #1)Being Lost by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Manda Mellett did it again with Being Lost: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1! I ate this book up and left no crumbs. As soon as i submit my review I’m starting the next book in the series.

I have to be honest- anytime i read books with older main characters- older meaning could have grown children! I have a toddler so I’m not there just yet (; – i put the book down. I just can’t make myself read it (same with high school age characters!) What I’m trying to say is that this book had me break my habits and I’m glad for it!

Anyway! The characters, the mains being Lost and Patsy, were incredibly relatable. The storyline was believable and sucked me in. I’ve been a fan of MC books for awhile now and she’s easily becoming my favorite MC author. On to the next one ya’ll!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay. I keep changing my favorite read of the year. I’m OBSESSED with this book- Turning Wheels (Satan’s Devils #1) by Manda Mellett. I’m on the way home from visiting family and literally ignored my family in the car because I HAD to read this book. Omg. The characters?! Amazing. I legitimately related to the potty mouth on these guys. A lot of writers throw cursing in books that doesn’t seem authentic but- it’s perfect. The storyline was heavy but so amazingly done! Don’t EVEN get me started on the sexy parts. Have you seen that GIF of Santana from Glee fanning herself? Picture that nearly the entire time I read this book! Throughout the entire story I have legitimately laughed, cried, and swooned! This is a definite must read for anyone interested in reading MC!

Forbidden WolfForbidden Wolf by C.R. Robertson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Forbidden Wolf (The Shadow Chronicles 1) by CR Robertson was a privilege to read! This has been one of my favorite reads for the year. The characters are so easy to like, love, dislike, and love again. The writing is so descriptive and vivid that i could literally imagine everything that was happening and “see” everyone.

The storyline is addicting and I could NOT put this book down! For fans of the movie Underworld- I would definitely recommend this book. It’s sexy and addicting. I plan to reread it soon and I can NOT wait to read the rest!

Sexy Drug (Losing My Heart #1)Sexy Drug by Melody Calder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sexy Drug (Losing My Heart #1) by Melody Calder follows the storylines for Ramone and Katie. Katie, the daughter of a ruthless criminal, is in danger and she gets a bodyguard courtesy of her father, Ramone.

The tension in the book is so thick you could cut it with a knife. The characters interactions with each other seems like something you could find in a tv show or movie. I kept getting that sensation while reading it that it could be a tv show. The portrayal of evil was believable and sometimes uncomfortable. It was a great read that I binged in a day.

I will definitely finish this series!

The Hunter's Heart (Love After Earth)The Hunter’s Heart by Astrid Sharpe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Hunter’s Heart is the first in the Love After Earth series by Astrid Sharpe and is by far one of my favorite reads of the year.

The book follows human woman, Poppy, and a band of women that were stolen from earth, and Zensah, leader of an alien tribe nearly extinct, who thought he was meeting settlers not stolen women.

I literally felt like I was eating this book I read it so fast. I’ve recently gotten into more fantasy and sci-fi books and this one perfectly scratches that itch. The characters were fun to read and easy to relate to. I found myself liking Poppy, not liking Poppy, and going back to liking her. I feel that shows the true talent of a writer when a character can influence you so much. Zensah was a dream and did similar for me as Poppy. If you are into sci-fi even a little bit, this is definitely a book you should check out! The story was vivid with lots of detail and descriptive so you could imagine where all of this takes place.

I will definitely read this again and I can’t wait to start the next!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sugar & Spice: Spicetopia written by Phoebe Alexander was so addicting I could not put it down! It follows the rich son of a family friendly theme park owner going undercover- Cy Sweet. He meets The Red Velvet Queen- played by struggling single mom, Jolie Cox.

The writing was so vivid and descriptive that I actually felt as if I was experiencing things they were experiencing. How the characters interacted with each other and their friendships with each other was so natural and easy to believe. I love how well the author portrayed the different upbringings and lives these characters have. It really makes you feel empathetic towards the characters. I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more in the series.

Ps. She DEFINITELY brings the Spice to this sweet series (;

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dirty Kisses and Conflicting Wishes by Danielle Jacks was a fantastic romance that I couldn’t put down!

The story follows Zoe Merrill, a woman trying to strike out on her own in the big city who loses her boyfriend and her job. She runs into Damien Chuke, an old rival and ex-bestie to her brother, who has dreams of performing in London’s West Enid. Situations arise where they fake a relationship and it’s such fun to follow along their journey! I finished this book in a day and I can’t wait to consume the second one! I couldn’t put this down. The characters connection was believable and fun. I caught myself laughing out loud multiple times. (: Definitely give this one a read.
