Two Hearts Under Fire (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8) by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Heather Bass

TWO HEARTS UNDER FIRE (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8)TWO HEARTS UNDER FIRE by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read a few books from this author but she continues to blow me away. This is the eighth book in the two hearts wounded warrior series. I have read this series from the beginning but this story could be read as a stand alone. I absolutely love military romance but this talented author always exceeds my expectations. When I got this book I stopped everything and started to read it right away. It only took me a little over a day to devour this amazing story.

A couple of years ago Russ’s team got into a lot of trouble. He nearly escaped but some of his team didn’t. Now Russ is being framed for something that did not happen all those years ago. He needs to find out who is making his life really hard. Russ goes to his long time friend Brand and his wife for help but he meets the gorgeous Claire instead. He feels something for this woman he just met but he needs to stay focused. Then all of a sudden an assassin tries to take their lives. The only thingis who was the real target. Russ quickly finds out that Claire also has some secrets of her own. Will Russ be able to find out who is making them hide or will they find him first?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, suspense, and some mystery. You will fall in love with these characters right from the beginning. Russ is still trying to heal from his past. He needs to know who is framing him so he can get his life back. Claire is a beautiful woman that knows what she wants. She has been through a lot in her past as well. These two characters have some steamy scenes that will make your temperature rise. This talented author will keep you at the edge of your seat until the end. I can’t wait to see what she will write for us next.

Proper Irish (Jaded Lily Book 1) by Zeia Jameson – Review by Heather Bass

Proper Irish (Jaded Lily #1)Proper Irish by Zeia Jameson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read from this author and now she has a new fan. I love a good enemy to lovers story but this talented author exceeded my expectations. This is the first book in the Jaded Lily series. I could not put this book down for anything. These characters drew me in right from the beginning. It only took me a few hours to devour this amazing book.

Stella is a well known event planner. She loves her job so much that is all she thinks about. Stella has to plan a party that can make or break her. She has to plan the St. Patrick’s Day ball for the mayor. Stella has no time for distractions until she runs into a handsome but rude stranger. She feels a connection to this man but she doesn’t understand why. Stella gets to know Padraig and she falls head over heels but they are totally different. She knows that this man is not right for her but what if he is? Will Stella take a chance on this bad boy or will she stay away from him like she should?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, drama, and healing. You will fall in love with these characters right from the beginning. Stella is a very independent woman that wants a great career. She doesn’t want to be tied down to a man. Padraig is a broody Irishman that loves his mom. He doesn’t like the wealthy due to his past. Padraig is a jerk in the beginning but once you see his heart you will fall in love with him. These characters have some steamy scenes that will make your temperature rise. This talented author will have you at the edge of your seat until the end. I can’t wait to see what this author will write for us next.

The Black Lotus Affair by Lina Vine – Review by Laura Leyman

The Black Lotus Affair (Kiko Ochisan Adventures, #2)The Black Lotus Affair by Lina Vine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is not the usual type of book that I read. But something drew me to this book and I am glad I read it. It was a short and sweet novella about honour. It is fast paced and is jam packed full of everything a novel has, just shorter.
I loved the plot and suspense at every corner. It was brilliant being on the journey with Kiko. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Japanese way if life that was incorporated into this book. I love learning about other cultures.
Definitely recommend this series.

Unlikely to Stay (Parker Lake, Book 3) by Ashlie Knapp – Review by Shannon Fowler

Unlikely to Stay (Parker Lake Book 3)Unlikely to Stay by Ashlie Knapp
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is not my first book by Knapp and it will not be my last. If you like stories with sweet hometown characters, stories with simple yet heart felt problems, then you need to read the Parker Lake Series. Unlikely to Stay is book 3 in the series and it is the story of CC and Brant. CC is the hometown Beauty Salon owner while Brant is the newest most eligible bachelor in town. However, Brant is only in town to serve a 3-year internship. This is another cute sweet story that will makes Ashliee Knapp a certifiable one-click author! If you have not read any of her books you could very easily pick this one to start with. There is some back story told about CC’s friends which are books 1 and 2 in this series but each book is about a new couple. The other stories are a must read as well. I don’t think there is any one thing that I love about this book, it is just an over all good story. I can definitely recommend this story to readers young and old alike.

Caught In A Lie (The Marcy Series Book #6) by Linda Burson – Review by Angela Hayes

Caught In A Lie (The Marcy Series Book 6)Caught In A Lie by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Caught in a Lie is the sixth book in the Marcy Series by Linda Burson. This series contains a continuing storyline that bridges from one book to the next, so if you haven’t the previous books the series, I really recommend that you do because otherwise it may be a little confusing if you don’t have all the relevant information. As I said in my last review, this series has hooked me and made me want to find out what will happen next, Ms. Burson is a brilliant storyteller and the more books I read in this series and the way it continues to evolve, the more impressed I am of her as an author and at just how fantastic this book/entire series really is.
As with the previous book, this story has secrets, shocks, emotions, a love triangle/three-way, interesting family/relationship dynamics, romance, suspense, drama, tension, dilemmas, and a bit of revenge. Marcy, Brad and Liam are complex, yet endearing individuals who have easily drawn me into their tale, making me emotionally invested in them and the outcome of their story. The story is written in such a way that it is believable, exploring some interesting situations that can occur in relationships. The character situations and their interactions are believable, realistic and relatable. Ms. Burson still makes her characters ‘work’ for their happiness- while she also throws in a few twists and interesting developments that had my mind whirling trying to figure out where the story would lead next.
Bring on the next book! I can’t wait!

Thank you, Ms. Burson!

Intentional (Intentional Series Book 1) by M.K. Harkins – Review by Jenni Bishop

Intentional (Intentional Series Book 1)Intentional by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Intentional (Intentional Series Book 1) by M.K. Harkins is a romance with a twist and is  quick and fast paced but enjoyable read where betrayal is the name of the game. I knew  something was building and lurking in the background but I was unable to work it out.  MK’s writing is simple but packs a punch in just the right places. The storyline flows  and the characters were interesting and believable and their stories were told in their  POV’s, which I love, and kept me engaged until the end. Can’t wait for book two.

CODE RAVEN: Prequel by Lynda Filler – Review by Jenni Bishop

CODE RAVEN: PrequelCODE RAVEN: Prequel by Lynda Filler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

CODE RAVEN: Prequel by Lynda Filler is the book where it all began and made Raven who he is. It set the scene and gives us a tantalising taste on what is to come. It is a quick and easy read that has you lingering on each and every word of what could be. What made the man, his motivations and the intrigue and mystery of the characters that make up the Raven series. Now we know the man we can move on to the first book in the series and see what thrills are instore for us.

XPOSED: Code Raven 1XPOSED: Code Raven 1 by Lynda Filler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

XPOSED: Code Raven 1 by Lynda Filler is the first book in the series and boy does it pack a punch. It is a quick and easy read that has you intrigued till the end with all the action and alpha men and women who protect the world from the evil, the greed, the power, the scum. Each and every character has their own reasons for what they do but they all have one thing in common and that is rid the world from those who take and kill without a second thought. Lynda has written
a story that you will not be able to let go of. The mystery and suspense has you so enthralled that you will block out everything around you and focused on the story. Can’t wait to see what happens in Abducted.

Knights Who Broke My Heart by Sonya Jesus – Review by Anna Hirsch

Knights Who Broke My Heart ( Knights, #3)Knights Who Broke My Heart by Sonya Jesus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Knights Who Broke My Heart by Sonya Jesus
5 Stars

Omg! This series just keeps getting better with every book this author writes. This book was amazing! You need to read this series. The story picks up where the last book ended. Amelia still has no clue about her stalker. He is closing in, getting her to trust him even more. Yet his plans are unraveling somewhat. Although Lis is clueless about many things, she grows tremendously in this novel. It was nice to see her come I to her own and be more confident and comfortable in her own skin.

I have always loved Robins from day one and wanted Amelia and him to be together. In this story, Aiden Keys plays a bigger role and I really like him. I don’t know who I’d rather her be with. I’m so confused. There were so many things that happened in this story that kept me on the edge of my seat. What a page turner! It ended in such a way that left me shocked with my mouth hanging open. You have got to read this book, I highly recommend it.

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Angela Shirley

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3)Lillie by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lillie by Mya O’Malley is the last instalment in the Maggie Trilogy series and does not disappoint, it is full of the mystery and suspense of the other books but concludes this great series.

The story continues on with Bryce, Naomi and Holly,where Naomi has sold her house and moved in with Bryce but his houses holds secrets too.

Naomi hears a strange crying and goes to investigate but uncovers secrets from her past which she needs to uncover to move on.

I have loved theses stories and great characters, the riches of the story draws you into the book where you are so involved you need feel you have to finish just the page, then chapter and before you know it you have read the book. The story is well written and you will enjoy all the characters not just the living.

I am sad that this is the last book within this series but what a great book to finish on, I can’t wait to see what new series or other books this author writes because as they are on my list of must read authors.
