Misfortune of Song: Druid’s Brooch Series: #5 by Christy Nicholas – Review by Jenni Bishop

Misfortune of Song (Druid's Brooch #5)Misfortune of Song by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Misfortune of Song: Druid’s Brooch Series: #5 by Christy Nicholas is a blend of fantasy history and Celtic mythology and is another great addition to the series. It is a story that will have your emotions all over the place and will have you laughing and crying. This book can be read as a standalone, as most of them can, but I would read them in order.

Maelan is a man of honour and code, but sometimes his granddaughter, Orlagh could drive him to drink. How far would he go to protect the one thing he loves in his life?

Orlagh is stubborn and bullheaded and often rebels against her grandfather. She wants what she wants and what she wants is the young man she has fallen in love with, be damned the consequences.

This is a world where there is magic and Fae and is wonderfully written to make it a magical read.

The Slip Series Collection by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Slip Series CollectionThe Slip Series Collection by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Slip Series Collection by Gwen McNamee is a great collection of stories that are quick, easy and funny reads. Each story is a romantic comedy that are scandalous and you will have a smile on your face and will be laughing out loud from start to finish.

Dick Slip One man’s pride is sorely tested when he inadvertently exposes more of himself than he ever wanted to share, let alone at a charity event and on live television for all the world to see.

Nip Slip Riley is the next up and coming big thing in the industry world. That is until a wardrobe malfunction sends the designer into a spin, effectively ruining any chances she has of her dream.

Beaver Blunder Madeline Ryan has fought hard to get where she is in a cut throat mans world, but one spill could change all that. She knows that she has to pull up her big girl panties and carry on as if she is not the laughing stock of the moment.

This one read that no one and I mean no one should miss. ​I highly recommend this book box to anyone and everyone and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Lost in Love: Miss Apple Pants (#2)Lost in Love: Miss Apple Pants by Charlotte Roth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lost in Love (The Miss Apple Pants series Book 2) by Charlotte Roth is a fun and sweet story. We once again meet up with the quirky and loveable Jensen family. It is a fun read as we go on an adventure around the world. One in the hopes of finding someone and another Mrs Rock who is going with them in the hopes of reliving old times. It is a beautiful story that often had me laughing out loud at the antics and I felt right at home with them.

Charlotte never disappoints with her unusual stories and quick wit. They are easy read and to enjoy and always leave you feeling light. Grab a drink settle in and enjoy a few hours of fun.

Back in the Ring (The Predator Series Book 4) by Brooke May – Review by Jenni Bishop

Back in the RingBack in the Ring by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Back in the Ring (The Predator Series Book 4) by Brooke May ​is another wonderful story in this series and is a second chance romance. This beautiful story is filled with lots of emotion that will break your heart but will also make you smile. There are new beginnings for our beautiful characters as they both deal with the loss of their partners. Brooke excels at this type of writing and is able to inject so much emotion, wonder and lets not forget the added bonus of a little steam and sizzle and of course the best friend who is an absolute joy and had me laughing at her antics.

Bijou is struggling to keep the youth centre her husbands dream going and support her teenage daughter, but she doesn’t know how she will be able to keep it going unless things change.

Noah Stone is struggling with the loss of his wife and being a single father to a two year old son. His only way to start to heal was moving to a small town and on beautiful woman. But when his past catches up with him will all he has built come crashing down?

This story was such a delight to read that I was disappointed when it ended. I wanted more.

Vantage Point (A Gray Ghost Novel Book 4) by Amy McKinley – Review by Jenni Bishop

Vantage Point (Gray Ghost #4)Vantage Point by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vantage Point (A Gray Ghost Novel Book 4) by​ Amy McKinley is another wonderful book in the series. I know when I read something by Amy and this series I am in good hands. I have come to love the Gray Ghost alpha men and have watched them grow from troubled boys to the great men they are in adulthood. It is well written, with plenty of suspense and drama, mystery and intrigue and plenty of hotness that make the story sizzle. It is a fast paced story, that is full of secrets and lies and will have you on the end of the couch. I really love the sense of family and support these guys have and their brotherhood of protecting each other and the ones they love, no matter the cost.

In this story we come full circle when they are once again faced with their past and bad memories and all the horrors they lived through in one way or another. I suggest that you read all the books in order as these are very complex characters and the backstories show you how they became who they are today.

It is one series that should be on everyone’s TBR list.

Rewind by Rowan Shaw – Review by Jenni Bishop

RewindRewind by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rewind by Rowan Shaw is a ​MM second chance romance and is an amazing story. It is a beautiful journey and the characters are written with depth and are so endearing. It is a very emotional story and switches between the past and the present and a coming together again after a failed relationship many years ago. Rowan’s writing paints a picture that is easily imaginable and shows raw and vulnerable feelings from being two young men just being in love. It shows the darker side of people who are homophobic and what they are capable of, which always leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. It is also a tale that has a sense of humour and witty remarks. Rowan has done a wonderful job in this story and I look forward to what may come next.

Age of Saints: Druid’s Brooch Series: #7 by Christy Nicholas – Review by Jenni Bishop

Age of Saints (Druid's Brooch #7)Age of Saints by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Age of Saints: Druid’s Brooch Series: #7 by Christy Nicholas is another great addition to this series. ​This series is a paranormal fantasy series where each story is set in different times. Age of Saints takes us further back in time to almost where it started and the magic became. It also gives us a look back on of the characters we have seen in the other books and shows them in a new light. Each story is a puzzle being put together for the big reveal. Christy’s writing always you to become one with the story and her attention to detail brings it to life. This captivating story is made more enjoyable due to the paranormal and magical elements. But it is also full of adventure and action, drama and romance.

I look forward to the next book.

The Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Woman America Loves a LatteThe Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord is certainly one quick and unusual read. It is like nothing else I have read and it is so stupidly crazy, it is good. You know like one of those cheesy movies that are so bad, they are good? It is silly, it is quirky, it is unique. Given there are so many players and there is so much going on, Holly has done well to keep it all together. It is well written, with plenty of suspense and dream, mystery and intrigue and plenty of quirkiness.

It is one story that is interesting and definitely unique in it’s telling.

His First Lady by Avery Scott – Review by Jenni Bishop

His First LadyHis First Lady by Avery Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

His First Lady by Avery Scott is a sweet romance contemporary story that is easy to read. The story is well written and a nice easy read but it also frustrated me and I wanted to shake some of the characters. The main characters were likeable but I felt the story and the characters themselves were lacking. The premise for the story is great but I wanted more. More depth, more wonder, more intensity, just more. I did like the humour throughout which made it fun.

Michael Reese is a Presidential candidate and is happy with his life. He has been married twice & divorced and a bit of a lady’s man. When his overbearing campaign manager decides he needs to find a woman, a First Lady is when the fun begins.

Kendall Bailey is the new girl on the block, and his speech writer. She has worked for a few candidates before so she knows the drill but when she is propositioned for another position by the Presidential candidate she is blown away.

It is a nice and easy and fun read.

Devil’s Backbone (Wild Beasts Series Book 5) by T. Birmingham – Review by Jenni Bishop

Devil's Backbone (Wild Beasts Series Book 5)Devil’s Backbone by T. Birmingham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Devil’s Backbone (Wild Beasts #5) by T. Birmingham is a great story in this amazing series. It is a paranormal fantasy romance like no other and in this book the main female character is broken and scarred for life and will invoke many, many, emotions. It is a story that will make your heart ache but it will also make your heart melt. T’s writing is made of magic and her imagination knows no bound when it comes to the paranormal. There is also some folk lore woven amongst the story that makes it that more interesting and unique.

Tess is damaged and in hiding from the horrors she that were inflicted upon her by a family that should have loved her. Many years later she still hides from herself, others and especially the man she loves. Will she be strong enough when she once again comes face to face with that past?

There is mayhem and madness, suspense and action, magic and steam that will have you constantly on the edge of your seat. This series is not to be missed.
