Wildcat: A Steamy Firefighter Romance by Carina Alyce – Review by Jenni Bishop

Wildcat (MetroGen After Hours, #1)Wildcat by Carina Alyce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

This is the first book I have read by this author, and I enjoyed it. This romance is a short story. One amazing night with a wildcat firefighter was all it was meant to be. But he can’t stop thinking about her. Firefighting is her life, and no man will ever get in the way of that. It is full of humour sass and feisty attitudes with lots of push and pull, angst and frustrations.
Grab a copy for a little afternoon delight.

Savage Secrets (Mafia Elite, book 4) by Amy McKinley – Review by Jenni Bishop

Savage Secrets (Mafia Elite, #4)Savage Secrets by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have not read one book from this author that I have not thoroughly loved. I see Amy’s name and must get the book; it really is a no brainer. Her writing is addictive, and I am hooked. This is another explosive story for this wonderful series. The intensity and anticipation are palpable and just explodes of the pages. This author does dark mafia romance suspense like no one else. It is rife with angst and fear, violence and danger, darkness, and secrets, and lies. The complex threads that Amy weaves her stories, and her characters keeps you coming back for more. You will be riveted to the pages and find that hours have passed by the time you manage to pull yourself away.

She thought she had more time but now she is once again in the fight for her life.

Sinful Vow (Dark Mafia Sins, book 1) by Emily Bowie – Review by Jenni Bishop

Sinful Vow (Dark Mafia Sins, #0.5)Sinful Vow by Emily Bowie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This action packed and tension filled tale is full of twists and turns. It is dark, raw, and gritty, intense, and entertaining, and full of emotions. It is a little steamy, with chemistry, a lot of angst and plenty of suspense. He is addicted, obsessed, he is dangerous, deceptive, full of lies and secrets and oh so sinful. Their families are mortal enemies, and he takes what he wants, this time though in doing so there will be an all-out war. Falling for the enemy is nothing short of death, pain, and misery but in the end, he must make her his. No one else can have her. He makes her feel safe, secure. He is all consuming.

Wild Hare’s Daughter (Wild Hares) by Laura Koerber – Review by Jenni Bishop

Wild Hare's DaughterWild Hare’s Daughter by Laura Koerber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an apocalyptic dystopian tale set in a small town with fairies and other magical creatures but not as we know them. They are a mixture of what one would consider “traditional” but that is the beauty of fiction, they can be whatever strikes the author. This author writes so that her words are easily imagined and brought to life. It is a story of those struggling for survival in a world where the militia rule. One young woman wants to know her other half, where she came from. Especially when she realises that magic is real and not just some rumour the militia spread.

The View from Here by Leon Stevens – Review by Jenni Bishop

The View from HereThe View from Here by Leon Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This Sci Fi Adventure story is certainly different. We are taken on a journey to another place or is it another time? It seems this author has many different genres, but I guess that is what you get when you read from the artistic view of an author, musician, songwriter, and composer. His writing shows he is an eclectic person loves to engage, captivate, and entertain and keep his audience on their toes. I think it would be very interesting to get inside his head, although I am not sure I would find my way back. Anyhoo, you will find yourself strangely intrigued by this quirky and vividly imaginative tale if you are able see things from outside what is considered the norm.

To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles Book 2) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Jenni Bishop

To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles, #2)To be a Fae Guardian by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

You can easily immerse yourself in this YA paranormal fantasy story. The author’s world building is only limited by your imagination and takes you to the most magical of places, the world of the Fae. This fantasy story has a little bit of everything to make it a magical tale, with action and danger, lies and deceit, loss, and pain, with faeries and magic and a host of characters and creatures. The book was well written, and you get lost amongst the adventure, the sorrow, the helplessness, a world that is lost in a battle of good versus evil. Titania knows loss, she has a kingdom but what she does not have is her power, she does not have the full backing of the council, she has even lost the trust of the people, but she may just be the only one left to go against the evil that is lurking in Lower Earth. She may just be the saviour. But what she needs to do is find her true self and believe.

The Bear at Midnight (Orkneyinga Murders Book 4) by Lexie Conyngham – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Bear at Midnight (Orkneyinga Murders #4)The Bear at Midnight by Lexie Conyngham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

It is an intriguing and original historical crime murder mystery. This fascinating tale is set in Scotland and is rich in history and culture in a time where Vikings reined. I love Scotland and with the authors engaging, detailed and descriptive writing it was easy to imagine and loose myself in the story. The tale is suspenseful and mysterious, and with the same whodunnit feel as the first book. I love the way that the author keeps you on your toes by switching things up, so you were thrown off track and are unable to tell who is responsible until the big reveal.

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan Book 2) by Anise Storm – Review by Jenni Bishop

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan #2)Imperfectly Yours by Anise Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have not read one book from this author that I have not thoroughly enjoyed. This contemporary romance is told from several POV’s which I love, because you get a deeper connection and understanding for who the characters are. It makes it easy to become invested in them and their stories. With a little steam, and sexy the story entices you to participate in the good and the bad.
But heartache and heartbreak hits when they least expect it, and their happiness is about to be tested. It is a complete ride of rollercoaster ride of emotions. There were times when I didn’t know if I wanted to smack them especially Anton or wrap them up and take them away.

Face the Fire (Moore Family Saga Book 5) by Michele Sims – Review by Jenni Bishop

Face the FireFace the Fire by Michele Sims
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A romantic suspense with paranormal and magical realism elements which gives this story an element of intrigue. As the fifth book in the series, I recommend that you read the previous books to get a better understanding of the characters and their back stories as it is a remarkable journey. I am sure you could read it as a standalone, but I can assure you will want to start at the beginning. This is a story about love and family, secrets and lies, mystery and uncertainty. Their happiness is shadowed by doubt, betrayal, obstacles, and forces that wish to tear them apart. There are twists and suspense that keep you turning the pages.
Miles a music mogul will stop at nothing to make his dreams come true. BUT is it worth it if the price to pay is family?

Shake Loose the Border (Thunder on the Moor Book 3) by Andrea Matthews – Review by Jenni Bishop

Shake Loose the Border (Thunder On The Moor Book 3)Shake Loose the Border by Andrea Matthews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

A historical romance but not your typical historical romance as it is steeped in paranormal. I have said it before, but this series reminds me of Outlander in so many ways. This time travel tale is full of passion and interesting facts. As with the first two books there is plenty of action and danger, murder, and mayhem, angst, and suspense. Make sure to read the books in order so as not to miss out the background and history of our characters and how they have gotten where they are.
Just when we thought things were settling down for our couple Maggie and Will find themselves once again in trouble. Maggie is once again on the run to another century with the help of Dylan, but Will is left behind. Will they find a way back to each other or are they doomed to be a part forever?
