Reign (The Larussio Legacy Book 3) by Via Mari – Review by Jenni Bishop

Reign The Larussio LegacyReign The Larussio Legacy by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reign (The Larussio Legacy Book 3) by Via Mari is a great romance story that is so much more. I have loved this spin off series and the original series where it all started. As soon as I see a new book from Via I know I need to grab it and I am never disappointed. It is an action-packed tale where the alpha men love hard and want nothing more than to love and be loved by their women. Unfortunately, because they are rich or part of a mafia they are always under attack in some way and they and their highly competent security teams manage to keep all safe. I also love the cast of characters who intertwine from book to book and series to series. If you love hot and steamy with lots of action, then you need to hop right in and be prepared to be wowed.

Faerie’s Magic (Seasons of the Fae book 2) by Jessica Feyden – Review by Jenni Bishop

Faerie's Magic (Seasons of the Fae Book 1)Faerie’s Magic by Jessica Feyden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Faerie’s Magic: a fae shifter romance (Seasons of the Fae Book 2) by Jessica Feyden is a paranormal fantasy romance. It took me a little while to settle into the story, but it soon drew me in. Love was not what any one thought would happen in the most unlikely of circumstances and despite the difference between them. There is a lot of pain, betrayal and hurt in this good story, but it is all worth it in the end. A Fae princess, a wolf shifter and magic and action abound in this wonderful tale. Jessica’s writing and world building, makes it easy to venture on this journey.

Shattered Reality (Summoned Book 1) by C.A. King, USA Today Bestselling Author – Review by Jenni Bishop

Shattered Reality (Summoned Book 1)Shattered Reality by C.A. King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shattered Reality (Summoned Book 1) by C.A. King is a paranormal fantasy story. Things are not as they seem in this book. Is it magic or insanity? There are a lot of secrets and lies as our MC steps back to what was once her home after her parents killing. Now face to face with her past once again our MC must confront that which she never believed. I enjoyed the story but there were parts where it felt a little disjointed and not flowing as well as it could have. Overall, the story held my attention with the mystery that CA intertwined.

EAST BEACH (Red Farlow Mysteries No. 3) by W.F. Ranew – Review by Jenni Bishop

East Beach (Red Farlow Mysteries: #3)East Beach by W.F. Ranew
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

East Beach: Red Farlow Mysteries: #3 by W.F. Ranew is a mystery thriller story. It will have you thinking you had it figured out only to be slipped a twist and a turn here and there and you had no idea. WF is very good a character building and they are well written. Red finds his friend on deaths door and is now on the hunt to find out who did this. The trail leads to drugs and cartel and your share of seedy bad guys. It also leads to more questions than answers. There are a lot of moving people and pictures in this story but WF does a good job of pulling it all together.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

CAFE CONFIDENTIAL: An unfiltered and intimate memoir by Lynda Filler is a non fiction adventure story. It is a story of the journey of our author who sold up and ventured into the unknown. It is a step by step look at her life going from place to place with no destination in mind but with only the thought of feeding her mind, body and soul. I was immersed in the story and it was over before I knew it, but it left an impression on me.

Child of Prophecy (The Tirumfall Trilogy BOOK 2) by J Drew Brumbaugh – Review by Jenni Bishop

Child of ProphecyChild of Prophecy by J. Drew Brumbaugh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Child of Prophecy (Tirumfall Trilogy Book 2) by J Drew Brumbaugh is a fantasy story. There are a lot of moving parts to this story and the road is not always easy but the journey to find the prophesised one to lead them to victory is a must. This is a fast paced tale with magic and danger, action and hope, magical beings of all sorts and so much more. You need to read the first book, Fall of the Western Kings of this trilogy as the story continues on. This original fantasy is vividly and richly outlined and is a well woven tale. It is easier to settle into this story earlier than the first as we have gotten to know the characters and the authors writing style.

Curse of the Sands (Relic Hunters Book 2) by Martin Ferguson – Review by Jenni Bishop

Curse of the Sands (Relic Hunters, #2)Curse of the Sands by Martin Ferguson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Curse of the Sands (Relic Hunters book 2) by Martin Ferguson is a YA adventure story and sees the gang back together on another mission risking life and limb. As with the first book I love the thrills and mystery, the history and gathering the pieces and putting a puzzle together. Martins world building and easy writing style makes for a thrilling and enthralling read. Again, as with the first book the story is fast paced and gets the heart pumping. I was so engrossed in it that time got away from me. If you love the Librarians, Indiana Jones etc you are gonna love this series. YA or not you will thoroughly enjoy it too.

Love On The Ropes (Love In Action Book 1) by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Jenni Bishop

Love On The Ropes (Love in Action, #1)Love On The Ropes by Aviva Vaughn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love on the Ropes: diverse, slow burn, frenemies to lovers, office rom com (Love in Action Book 1) by Aviva Vaughn is a delightful story. Aviva has done a great job with the characters. They will keep you entertained with their shenanigans and frenemies attitude towards one another. The characters feel real and blemished and Aviva could not have done a better job at bringing them to life. Watching them fight every step of the way is fun and enjoyable. Love on the Ropes is a wonderful start to the series, and I can’t wait to see what Aviva gives us next.
