5-stars

This is a must-read Mafia series, my favourite to date! This is a series that should be read in order, so if this is the first book your looking at I would go back and start from the beginning. You won’t want to miss anything!!

Just like the first three books this one was action-packed, steamy, detailed, surprising, gripping and obviously complex! I have been waiting (impatiently) for Elena’s story since she was first introduced and I finally got some answers to my burning questions! I love how the author tied everything together making everything click in such a powerful way. This storyline was perfect in every way!!

I would highly recommend this series to anyone looking for their next mafia read!!

I’m going to start off by saying that this is not the first book I’ve read by this author but it certainly is my favourite, in fact it’s actually my favourite mafia read to date!

I completely devoured this book, I read it in record time as I couldn’t get enough of these characters, I was so captivated by the storyline that I read it in one sitting, I couldn’t bring myself to stop reading. The chemistry between the main characters is so unbelievably strong it could be felt through the pages, I feel like I’ve never rooted for a couple more!

This book had everything I look for in a mafia read, it was dark, detailed, action-packed, tragic, shocking, steamy and of course over the top. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for their next mafia read!

4-stars

This is one of those stories that I have a love/hate relationship with, I had a hard time connecting with Caspian just due to his overall personality but I really liked Paisley’s character and eventually, over time Caspian won me over.

I love how this author painted such a clear picture with all of the details written throughout the storyline, it made it easy to picture everything all out in my mind. This storyline is steamy, fast, unexpected, intense and a little bit emotional, so really well rounded, just as I had hoped it would be.

I am really looking forward to reading more from this author and of this series asap!

This was a truly phenomenal read! It’s the second book in the Titans of Manhattan series. This is the first book of the series that I have read so I can honestly say that this book can be read as a standalone as I had no problem following along with this book with no previous knowledge of the characters.

This storyline was so steamy, dynamic, unexpected, tear jerking and so heart wrenchingly beautiful. I instantly felt connected to the characters and found myself really rooting for them. Their story is tragic and full of ups and downs and struggles, making it really relatable.

Though this is a fiction book it has a lot of truth to it too, this is the type of story that stays with you long after you’ve reached the end. I cannot wait to read more from this author asap and would recommend this to anyone looking for their next romance read!

3 stars

This was my first book by this author so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I dove in. While I originally thought I would love this storyline it sort of ended up missing the mark for me. I found that the storyline was sort of all over the place, though filled with lots of detail, made it hard for me to follow.

In saying that, I liked the premise of the storyline as generational trauma and family history is something that I firmly believe should be talked about more openly. Each generation has much to learn from the previous one so I did enjoy that part.

Though this book wasn’t for me I would definitely try more from this author in the future.

This was an incredible enemy to lovers read, the bully romance genre is not my usual go too but I’m so glad I picked this book up!

This storyline had me captivated from the very beginning and didn’t let up until the very end. I was so consumed by these characters and all the emotions throughout. I found myself really connecting with Kirsa and feeling all of her emotions as I read, which certainly made for an entertaining read as she battles with the push and pull of her attraction to Brock and of course the betrayal, hurt, anger, attraction etc.

I’ve only read two books by this author but with each one I was blown away, I will be diving in and reading everything by this author asap! I just can’t get enough of her writing!!

If you are looking for an all-consuming love story look no further, this is the book for you!

Wow! This author amazes me time and time again, she’s one of my all-time favourites. She’s one of those one click authors for me, I will read anything by her without question!

This is the sixth book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series, a series that can easily be read as standalones but I would highly recommend the whole thing anyway because this is honestly one of the best paranormal series I’ve ever read.

The characters in this storyline are so captivating and were so easy to connect with, I found myself laughing along with them and giggling at their witty remarks. I was honestly entertained the whole way through, so much so that I read it in one sitting, I couldn’t bring myself to stop reading as I was so immersed in the story forgetting all about the real world.

I highly highly recommend this book to anyone looking for their next one of a kind comedic paranormal read!

Wow!! I didn’t think it was possible to love this book more than the first two of the series. This is the third and final book in Levi and Tasha’s story and what an amazing conclusion it is!! This is a series that cannot be read as standalones, it must be read in order and is absolutely a must read!!

This storyline is dark, mysterious, interesting, captivating, action-packed, witty and so entertaining!! Honestly, it’s one of the best paranormal series I have ever read, and I have read many so that’s saying something. I love how I’m able to be so engrossed in this story and how even during a really serious moment a witty remark is thrown in and having me laughing. It really kept me on my toes!!

I would highly recommend this series to others and can’t wait to read more from this author in the future!

5-stars

Wow!! What a time to read a story like this one, one about trying to survive a pandemic, albeit ours doesn’t involve zombies (thank goodness). This obviously hit close to home as we are currently in the middle of our very own pandemic, and for that reason at times it felt hard to read because it was just so real and I could relate to Kella and her internal dialogue.

I love how this author managed to hook me in right from the beginning, the characters are super intriguing and relatable which was an added bonus. I also feel like she portrayed a young woman’s thoughts really well, plus all of the detail made it really easy to follow along and picture everything playing out in my mind.

This was my first book by this author but it won’t be my last, I look forward to reading more from this author asap!!

5-star review

This is a must-read romance! It’s the third book in the Parker Lake series, a series that can be read as standalones as there’s so much main character and supporting character detail that makes it really easy to follow along. But to fully appreciate this series I would suggest reading it in order to get the full picture!

Unlikely to Stay is sweet, romantic, detailed and laugh out loud funny! This author’s writing always pulls me right in from the start, I couldn’t put this book down and I ended up reading it in one sitting. The characters are so relatable and easy to connect with which made it for a really entertaining read! Plus, this series has some very memorable supporting characters.

This is a book and series I would recommend to anyone looking for their next romance read! And like always I look forward to reading more from this author in the future!
