Triad Resumption: Part Two (Grimm Wolves MC Book 6) by D.M. Earl – Review by Jenni Bishop

Triad Resumption, Part Two (Grimm Wolves MC #6)Triad Resumption, Part Two by D.M. Earl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

I couldn’t wait for this book to come out and I was not disappointed. It is one intense ride. Triad Resumption is a dark and powerful paranormal MC romance and the sixth book in the series. Book 5 A Tormented Man’s Soul: Part One was raw and gritty and broke my heart and this one is just the same. It is full of emotions, pain, and sorrow, heartbreak, and crushed and tormented soul and all the feelings are palpable as we journey along on this fight.

I recommend reading all the previous books in the series. There are all the other MC characters along with their backstories and other important information you should know before starting this book.

Chains is a complex man and his torment didn’t stop after his rescue; he is a broken and haunted man. Now he must face the demons of his past to have a future he wants. With his MC brothers, Jackson and Winnie at his back he must become the dark heartless, ruthless, and violent enforcer to find the enemy.

I love this series.

The Vilification of Aqua Marine by Megan Mackie – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Vilification of Aqua Marine (Working Mask, #1)The Vilification of Aqua Marine by Megan Mackie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

Megan certainly keeps her readers on their toes with her eclectic stories. She is not a writer who is boxed into one genre and that is what I like about her. The Vilification of Aqua Marine was originally a short play that Megan had written that she turned to a book. Lucky for us.

There is lots of action, thrills, drama, mayhem and surprises. It is a fun Superheroes vs Supervillains story with some elements of comic books. I don’t read blurbs as I like to go in blind with no preconceived ideas about a story and Megan does the unexpected and that is what makes her stories great. I love the unique characters.

This is not my normal reading genre, but I enjoyed this new world Megan has created and was pleasantly drawn right into the story as I know you will be too.

I look forward to future books.

Ballet School Rumours (Amberwood Hall Ballet School Adventure Book 3) by Eleanor Dixon – Review by Jenni Bishop

Ballet School RumoursBallet School Rumours by Eleanor Dixon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ballet School Rumours is a fun paranormal fantasy tale and the third book in the series. It is aimed at young readers and early teens 8 – 13-year-olds. Eleanors passion comes from her own experiences with ballet and shines through in her words. Lauren, Grace and Rodney are back at Amberwood and on their next mysterious adventure. It is an engaging story with heart-warming characters.

It is a sweet tale of ghosts and friendships. A gossip column, sinister whispers and a ghost hunt could quickly derail it all. It could turn friends into enemies and broken dreams.

If you love ballet and ghostly adventures you will enjoy this.

Twilight’s Spy (Twilight Realm Trilogy Book 1.5) by K.M. Wray – Review by Jenni Bishop

Twilight's SpyTwilight’s Spy by K.M. Wray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The adventure continues with Twilight’s Spy which is a unique YA fantasy story. It is book 1.5 in the Twilight Realm Trilogy. It is a quick read but there is lots going on. There are plenty of magical beings in this story elves and dragons and more to entice the reader. The story and characters are well developed. The fantasy land KM has created is intriguing and visually pleasant. There is action, mystery, love, deceit, pain, and betrayal.

A warrior assigned to play spy. She has to go where no Elf has come back from, the Night Realm. If only she could get her magic to work. Our main character is strong, determined and sassy and vows to complete her mission.

If you love YA fantasy you will enjoy this one.

Truth or Kill (Twisted Legends Collection Book 1) by A.C. Kramer – Review by Jenni Bishop

Truth or Kill (Twisted Legends Collection, #2)Truth or Kill by A.C. Kramer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beware there are triggers!

“Welcome to the darkness, my little black rose. Blood is your new currency. And it’s time to pay the price.”

Truth or Kill is a thrilling new adult story and the first book in this series. I enjoyed the unique plot which is a dark, with a little humour and twisted bloody game. I have read a lot of this authors books that are paranormal, magic books that I loved but love her dark and twisted tale is even better. The story is cleverly woven with intrigue and suspense.

There’s plenty of passion, secrets, vengeance, thrills, deranged games, drama, dangerous agendas, murder, mystery and so much more. This is a short read with lots of twist and turns.

Saved by Love (Bellevue Bullies Book 7) by Toni Aleo – Review by Jenni Bishop

Saved by Love (Bellevue Bullies #7)Saved by Love by Toni Aleo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having not read anything before written by this author I must say I enjoyed Toni’s writing style. I was totally invested in this emotional story. I didn’t realise this was the seventh book in the series but didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. But having said that I will be going back to read the others. This story is raw and real and full of struggles but you cannot help falling in love with the characters.

This beautifully written tale is Evan and Callie’s story. Evan is dealing with mental health and self-worth problems but one sweet woman who is strong and sassy maybe just what he needs.

Dealing with mental health problems myself brought the story that much closer to home in this wonderful read.

Blood & Vengeance (The Casket Girls Book 2) by A.D. Brazeau – Review by Jenni Bishop

Blood & Vengeance (The Casket Girls #2)Blood & Vengeance by A.D. Brazeau
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I saw AD had another book, I jumped at the chance to read it. Blood & Vengeance is the intense second book in this dark series and a great paranormal Vampire romance story. AD does dark paranormal romance well. I loved the mystery, the mythology and historical facts of the Casket Girls from the first book and this one was no different.

Greer, who was stolen from her simple life in Paris and her Dark Knight who has been cursed to live as a blood-sucking vampire, Theron set out to fight for not only their freedom but also those of the casket girls.

AD gives us her version of the Casket Girls from the 1700’s in this twisted dark tale. The beautifully weaved story line is well-developed, the world-building vividly rich, and the characters drew me into the dark side. This compelling story had me hooked from the first book but I think this one was better.

Fear, demon’s, curses, darkness, mystery, are just some of what you will find in this gripping tale that the most hardened paranormal reader will love.

I hope more is coming.

Castor’s Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars Book 2) by Tai James – Review by Jenni Bishop

Castor's Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars # 2)Castor’s Kiss by Tai James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

Castor’s Kiss is an intriguing Sci-Fi, romance story. This is my first time reading anything from this author and I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the suspenseful plot and the worldbuilding reminded me a bit of the series Atlantis. The story is rife with conflict, danger and characters fighting for their lives and freedom. I didn’t realise this was the second book in the series until I was almost finished but I will be going back to read the others. There is a slow burn romance and finding his mate. This thrilling storyline jumped right into the thick of things from the very start and had great characters that kept me glued to the pages but it was over too soon.

I can’t wait to read more from Tai.

The Colors of Friendship (The Colors Trilogy Book 1) by K.R. Raye – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Colors of Friendship (Colors Trilogy, #1)The Colors of Friendship by K.R. Raye
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

Trigger warning – there is domestic violence/an abusive relationship.

Lance, Imani and Melody meet and instantly click. The Colors of Friendship is about friendship, watching the characters grow as individuals and become besties. It is about their journey through good times and bad times and times that will test their friendship.

Lance wants to have fun and is our resident sports jock and any lady will do man and makes no apologies but he would do anything for his two besties.

Imani is sassy, sarcastic and serious about her study and loyal friend. She had me laughing at her banter.

Melody is naïve and a fairy tale romantic at heart and sees the best in people leading to her falling for the biggest a’hole who is good at masking who he is. This took up most of the book which I found to be a slow read in the start but picked up near the end. I also found it hard to relate to/invest in her a lot of the time because she spent a lot of time in the clouds and wanted to shake her to wake up.

When things take a turn for the worst Melody will need her friends more than ever.

The Mastermind (WaterFyre Rising Book 1) by Nadia Han – Review by Melanie Maglietta

The Mastermind (WaterFyre Rising, #1)The Mastermind by Nadia Han
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Mastermind is the first book in the WaterFyre series by Nadia Han. This is also her debut title, which is pretty impressive! As someone who has been actively exploring the romance genre, I really appreciated this story! The story centers around Audri Wu and one of her brother’s best friends, Remington (Remi). Remi not only brings the sexy, but he also brings a lot of dark, dangerous and suspenseful vibes to the story as Audri tries to navigate one of the oldest taboos…don’t mess with your brother’s best friend! Definitely recommend this title as it’s a nice mixture of suspense and sexy. Looking forward to more of this series!
