Born in Darkness (Mafia Elite Book 3) by Amy McKinley – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Born in Darkness (Mafia Elite, #3)Born in Darkness by Amy McKinley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Dark Mafia that will have you wanting to join the fight. A Mob Boss and Mafia Princess that have always been in love but never found the perfect moments to declare their feelings. Stefano and Emiliana have to tackle twists and backstabbing just to find the happiness they deserve.

This might be the third book in this series, but you can read it without feeling lost and disconnected from the other stories. Great characters and a page-turning dark romance.

King Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel Book 6) by India Kells – Review by Jessica Leombruno

King Bastard (Dark Sparrow, #6)King Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


“A desperate and cunning man is the most dangerous when he’s cornered.”

I have read a few books by this author in the past, and I always find it easy to connect with her characters. Lazarus and Sasha love to push each other buttons but you can’t fight the chemistry they have. Their story was full of intense suspense and a romance that will melt your kindle.

You might want to read the other books first, just to give you a little background information. Now that I know that all of Lazarus’s brothers are taken, I need to know their stories.

A Cold Creek Christmas (Reigning Hearts, Book 5) by KG Fletcher – Review by Jessica Leombruno

A Cold Creek Christmas (Reigning Hearts, #5)A Cold Creek Christmas by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This Christmas novella will fill you with hope and cheer, even to those who are a little grinch during the holiday season. Amber, the local pub owner, and Gio, new to town single father, brought some spiciness and heartwarming moments to this sweet holiday story. Every time I read a book by this author, I know that I will enjoy every word she writes. Gio’s daughter Talia might have stolen my heart a few times. While reading I felt like I was sitting on a cozy couch watching a romantic holiday movie.

Fall to Pieces by Becky Flade – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Fall to PiecesFall to Pieces by Becky Flade
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As a daughter of a cop, I was intrigued by the blurb of this book. This mystery suspense isn’t my typical read, but sometimes new books can surprise you. Alex Danvers and her new partner Xavier Knight have a new case. But that is not the only thing going on, who can you trust when everyone is working against you? Between the twists and turns and trying to solve the mystery, I enjoyed where the pieces fell.

Conveniently Yours (Titans Of Manhattan BOOK 1) by Anise Storm – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Conveniently Yours (Titans Of Manhattan #1)Conveniently Yours by Anise Storm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“My only regret is that I haven’t pushed you enough to experience life outside of the boardroom.” Caspian’s uncle reasons for his request for Caspian to marry or he’s selling Archer Industries. Caspian thinks he has everything, which is only material things, till he bumps into a brunette with pigtails from his past. Paisley Fisher is having troubles of her own that revolve around her mother’s health. Can they both help the other out with their problems?

This marriage of convenience romance was intriguing but at times a little predictable. Characters were likable and relatable, a great start to this series. As my first book by this author, I’m really looking forward to more of the Titans of Manhattan men.

Surprise Baby for Mr. Fischer (Curvy Ever After Book 2) by Stephanie Harrell – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Surprise Baby for Mr. Fischer (Curvy Ever After, #2)Surprise Baby for Mr. Fischer by Stephanie Harrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The title and blurb are what caught my eye with this book. I have been itching for a good surprise baby romance lately. As this was my first book by this author, I wasn’t expecting to be hooked by these characters and how involved I got in their story. Harper and Lincoln had that instant chemistry for a fun weekend with a stranger, but that weekend turned into some more 9 months later. I will definitely be going back to read book 1 in this series!

The GroomsmanThe Groomsman by Marina Hanna
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A bachelor and a romantic met at their best friend’s wedding, we all know where this is going. The Groomsman by Marina Hanna is a sexy one night that turned into some more than was expected. Mark and Lauren sure know how to bring the spice and at the same time keep you turning the pages.

As this was only my second book by this author, I was not surprised by how much I liked these characters and the fun drama filled writing.

Rock Me To The Top (Gracefall: Vicious Love Tour) by Victoria Zak – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Rock Me To The Top (Gracefall: Vicious Love Tour Book One)Rock Me To The Top by Victoria Zak
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rock Me to the Top by Victoria Zak. This rockstar/friends-to-lovers romance had me falling for Gracefall. Joe and Melody have been friends since childhood but will going on tour put a strain on their relationship or will their chemistry get the best of them?

As this was a new author to me I went in not knowing what to expect… I was enjoyably surprised by how attached and emotional I got while reading this story. These characters were interesting, relatable, and well-written. What a great start to the series and I can’t wait to read more.

Tenacious (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 6) by Via Mari – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Tenacious (Billionaire Bodyguards # 6)Tenacious by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every time Via Mari has a new book come out I know that I will be lost in her character’s world and forget about everything in mine.

Tenacious is the sixth book in the Billionaire Bodyguards series and I have fallen for another steamy alpha male. Nick and Allie’s romance and suspense had me on the edge of my seat. The question thru out this book was, can Nick and Allie each give something up to make this relationship work?

I highly recommend this book, this series, and every other book written by Via Mari. I can’t wait to read her next book.

Wrong for Him (The Love Lottery Series Book 3) by Christi Barth – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Wrong for Him (Love Lottery, #3)Wrong for Him by Christi Barth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wrong for Him is the third book in the Love Lottery series by Christi Barth. This series was about 4 friends winning the lottery and their prize was an Inn in Chesterfield. Each book follows a different couple as they find their Love Lottery.

Amelia and Teagan were the perfect friends to lovers/best friend’s sibling romance I have read in a while. I enjoyed their story and was completely intrigued by these characters.

I did feel like I was missing something while reading, only because I haven’t read the first two books (I will be fixing this). But overall this fun sweet romance won’t have you disappointed that you start reading Wrong for Him.
