Queen of the Warrior Bees (Natural Forces Book 1) by Jean Gill – Review by Kerry Baker

Queen of the Warrior Bees (Natural Forces #1)Queen of the Warrior Bees by Jean Gill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Queen of the Warrior Bees by Jean Gill is the first book in the Natural Forces series. This book was an unexpected read that will captivate you more than you would have thought possible.
I will be the first to admit that I wasn’t overly blown away by the title or the description of this book. However the reviews were so overwhelmingly positive for it that I had to give it a go. And I am so glad that I did! I never expected to become so invested in Mielitta’s journey. The struggle she was going through, and the connection she forges with the bees is so well done by the author that you are pulled in with such ease.
I was a little dubious going in to the book about the whole bee element. I had yet to read a book where this kind of story line works. But Jean Gill again does it with such ease that I not only believed it, I enjoyed it! The descriptions and the writing style were so potent I could almost believe I was in the book right alongside Mielitta.
This is a book that I would highly recommend. I will now be going straight out to try anything else by this author!!

Too Hot to Handle (The Catch Series Book 3) by Avery Scott – Review by Madison Degraffenreid

Too Hot To Handle (The Catch Volume 3) By Avery Scott
5-stars
Too Hot To Handle was an exciting fun and romantic read. This is the first book I have read in this series and I had no problem with keeping up with the story. The author easily brought me up to speed as to what was occurring. She easily pulled me in with the introduction of Tony’s character at the start of the book. He was a fun easy going firefighter. I also enjoyed Georgia’s character. She worked hard at what she did and I couldn’t help but laugh at the first few situations she got herself into where Tony rescued her. This was an excellent read with great characters, excellent scenery, an exciting climax, and an even better ending. I highly recommend this book! I can’t wait to read more in this series.

Furbidden Attraction (Raven Falls Cursed Romances Book 1) By R. O’Leary
5 stars!!!!!

My favorite thing in the world is to find new authors anbd ne books to read. This book was just the thing. I was completely drawn in from the first page. I really found the author’s style to be very unique and refreshing. I like how the book world is developed.

The chemistry between Louisa and Jack is quite phenomenal. I like how the forbidden romance is played out. I really like how the supernatural and human world are connected and how the supernaturals are hidden and blended in with the humans. I like how Louisa adapts to Jack’s world and how the drama plays out around them. I will definitely be reading more from this author and this series in the future.

Too Hot to Handle (The Catch, Book 3)Too Hot to Handle by Avery Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Too Hot to Handle was a brilliant read by Avery Scott. This isn’t the first book that I have read by this author so I was hoping I would enjoy it as much as I did the first and I absolutely did! As soon as I started reading I knew that this book was going to be a hit with me, the characters were likeable and the storyline flowed really well, it was a really easy and enjoyable story to read. There was some humour, some romance and an extremely hot firefighter – what’s not to love about this book?!? I love Georgia, I thought that she was a great female lead to read about and I loved Tony!! The two together made for a very entertaining read! I am so looking forward to the next book in the series! I cannot wait to see what happens next!

Furbidden Attraction: A Cursed Romance (Raven Falls Cursed Romances Book 1) by R. O’ Leary – Review by Heather Mize

Furbidden Attraction: A Cursed RomanceFurbidden Attraction: A Cursed Romance by R. O’Leary
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. I am new to the paranormal world so I was a little nervous to read this but the blurb caught my attention. This book is about Jack who was shot and could not shift from his dog form to his human form and ends up attached to a vet assistant Louisa. Once Jack could shift he did so while in bed with Louisa prompting him to kidnap her so she doesn’t tell his shifting secrets. What I really enjoyed in this book was the back and forth banter of the main characters and also that Louisa is not a wallflower. She has strong feelings and opinions and she lets them known. I give this book a 5/5.

The Matchmaker’s Match (Man’s Best Friend Series) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Heather Mize

The Matchmaker's Match (Man's Best Friend, #3)The Matchmaker’s Match by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read the first two books in this series so I was ready to go when this book came out. The first two books in the series were matched by the main character in this book Lincoln. Lincoln and Meredith are the couple of this book and of course all the books are centered around a dog. I love how light and carefree these books are. If you want to enjoy witty banter, funny moments and of course the love of a dog this book is for you! I absolutely love this series and Nicole Flockton has now become a go to author for me.

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love (To Love a Sportsman Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes – Review by Karyn Taylor

Bowled (To Love a Sportsman Book 1)Bowled by Pamela Q. Fernandes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bowled: Facing The Yorker Of Love is the first book in the To Love A Sportsman series by Pamela Q. Fernandes. I had not previously read any of this author’s work but I do love a good sports romance so decided to give this a try. Although I have read many sports romances, I have never read one centred around the sport of cricket. Thankfully I’m a lover of cricket and incidentally I’m writing this review while watching England play at the world Cup.
Hero of this story is Mathew Anderson, captain of the England cricket team. Having been accused of domestic abuse by his previous girlfriend, he’s currently keeping women at arm’s length. Well that is until he receives a tweet from Rose Cavendish which forces him to take action.
I absolutely loved the interactions between Mathew and Rose. There is an instant attraction between the 2 but both have severe trust issues since their previous relationships. Rose is a feisty character that i loved but she also came across as very vulnerable at times.
I loved Mathew’s characters but there were a few occasions that I’d loved to have given him a kick up the backside. I hated that he allowed dinner guests to speak badly of her. He lost serious brownie points at that point in the story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari
5 stars

This is the first book of a new series by Via Mari. I love her writing style, it sucks you right in and doesn’t let up until the end.
We do see characters from her other series but this story follows Jay and Sasha.
Jay is head of security and Sasha a ballerina. Through suspense and drama, we see this amazing story unfold.
A must read!

The Brass Compass: A Novel by Ellen Butler – Review by Sara Oxton

The Brass CompassThe Brass Compass by Ellen Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Brass Compass by Ellen Butler a four-star read that will help you find true north. I am not usually a fan of historical stories, but this one intrigued me. Lily Saint James is such a complex character, she makes the novel for me, if she wasn’t so well written then this wouldn’t be such a good story. Lily has a great flow, you watch as she goes from bored young woman to a major undercover player, the spying interspersed with a love story just adds a much needed lightness to the story, if there wasn’t the love story it could be too dark otherwise.
