Proper Impulse (Jaded Lily Book 4) By Zeia Jameson. I absolutely loved this story. Seriously wish I could read it again for the first time. From page one I was hooked, although I’ll be honest after the other books I knew I’d probably like this one as well. But “like” it isn’t a strong enough phrase I LOVED IT! The characters are complex and relatable and just had a way that had me sinking into their story. The author has a way of making words jump off the pages and come alive before your eyes. I love a story that makes me forget time and where I’m at and this one while short does just that. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. Five stars all the way!
The Fisher Men X My Heart
By Rebel Nicks O’Dey
The Fisher Men X My Heart is book one in the Fisher Men Series by Rebel Nicks O’Dey. I have to say that this is the first book I have read by this author, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the whole book. Rebel has written this book in such a way that you just can’t pick a favorite character. The story just flows nicely and how lucky is Samantha to have had these gorgeous men in her life. More so she is so lucky to have had them protect her when she needed them to. Samantha has feelings for all these hunky men, but all in different ways. Now she is coming home to claim the one that holds her heart. Which of these men will it be? The question is once she has revealed which one of them holds her heart will other hearts be crushed? Now go get yourself a copy of this book and bring on book 2.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when opening this book up. Both of these authors are new to me but boy am I ever glad I took a chance on this short book. From start to finish the action-packed pages left me feeling like I had more story than I would have anticipated I would find in such a short book. The authors did a fantastic job leaving this tale of shifters into a new house I didn’t anticipate. It opened a world wide open for a series to continue. I simply cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. Extremely well written and well done. Loved it!
Captivity: A Paranormal Romance Novella (Captivity Book 1) by Sarah Biglow & Molly Zenk
Captivity: A Paranormal Romance Novella (Captivity Book 1) by Sarah Biglow & Molly Zenk was an exciting and fast paced novel. This is the first novel I have read by these authors and I can tell that this will be an awesome series. I loved the numerous paranormal shifters in the storyline. I felt the authors did an excellent job describing them and giving each their own creative personality. I enjoyed both Aiden and Lorelei as the main characters but I definitely favored Lorelei more. I loved her spunk and how dedicated she was to finding her lost love. She was also strong and determined. I really enjoyed this easy read. I can’t wait to read more in this series. I definitely feel it deserves the 5-stars and I highly recommend it!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was easy to follow along what was happening in the present and what happened in the past. I liked how we got history in mythology throughout the story. The characters were fun and the friendships they shared made it that much better of a read. The author did awesome with the characters in keeping them young yet didn’t make them completely stupid as sometimes I have noticed happens in some books when dealing with teenagers. I thought this story was entertaining and kept me captivated throughout. I highly recommend this wonderful read. I have read other books by this author and if you like fantasy I suggest you check out other books from her, you will not be disappointed.
The Dreamer’s Vengeance by Helen Tyree is a wonderfully written fantasy that I loved diving into. What made me want to read this book was the darkness I read in the synopsis. Fantasy with darkness truly is has become a favorite and this book quickly became a topped my list. The author gave us storyline that was creative, intriguing, well written. The characters full you right in right along with the vivid details. This was my first book by this author and I have to say I want and need to read more!

FIVE STARS AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Ruin: The El Diablo Chronicles by Autumn Sand is a steamy story about Tallie and Raymond. Autumn Sand has a way of keeping my interest in the story (especially romance is not my first choice of material). Her descriptive wording is what keeps me interested. I love her characters and the story line. Tallie is a woman who keeps herself guarded. She doesn’t like to show herself to every Tom, Dick, and Henry. She is reserved and doesn’t want to get hurt. In the next breath she knows what she wants and doesn’t care what the cost may be. Raymond is another person who appears to be closely guarded as well. He has a strict code and lives by that code. So what happens when Tallie meets Raymond? You will have to read the story to get that information.
Orion’s Kiss by Claire Luana is an interesting story. The description says it is YA Paranormal Romance, but saying that I would categorize it as MA. This is a mythological story and grabbed my interest for that point alone. It is was written beautifully. I could not stop reading the book until I read the last page. One main reason I would call this MA is because of the undertones of the words. It has face value meaning which makes it YA, but if you understand the undertones it takes on a whole new meaning. Merope is the youngest of seven sisters who sees visions of her sister’s death. Orion is the one who murders her sisters all so long ago. She needs to kill him to break the curse put on her and sisters. Will Merope be able stop Orion or will this be her curse forever?
With even more page turning suspense and a little extra romance for Madeline and Mike, the fourth installment of the Madeline Dawkins Mysteries is fantastic. Two different women with dead husbands need help for almost opposite reasons. One isn’t convinced of her husband’s suicide and the other might have been framed for her husband’s bizarre death. Madeline’s trash bag ex asks for help and out of the goodness of his heart, Mike says yes. Yes, the help is for Lindsay but I still think Steve had some nerve even asking.
Mike and Madeline have hearts really too good for their world and are prepared to do whatever it takes to help these two women.
