Walker Pride (The Walker Family Series Book 1) by Bernadette Marie – Review by Katie Matthews

Walker Pride (The Walker Family, #1)Walker Pride by Bernadette Marie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I absolutely loved this book – I have to say I have a thing for a sexy cowboy so this story was definitely up my street so to speak! I loved Eric! He’d not had the easiest of lives but loved his simple and easy life until it’s jeopardised by a family member. I really felt for him at times and the author did a great job with his character giving him that slight vulnerability – this made me love him even more. I liked Susan too, she was clearly looking to get away from her past life when she meets Eric. Their story definitely had some twists and turns and it is one that I highly recommend.

Elusive: Dark Billionaire Mafia Romance (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 5) by Via Mari – Review by Katie Matthews

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

 

This series just continues to get better and better. Elusive was a fantastic 5 star read, I loved every single minute of it! I love this author, she had such an amazing writing ability, her stories are just an absolute pleasure to read – she creates some brilliant characters and I am always completely absorbed in their story. I love Sheldon, he was definitely book boyfriend material! I loved Sheldon for her dominance but Alexis was certainly one who could hold her own but the passion and sparks between them was off the charts! Their story is definitely a steamy one!! Fantastic read and highly recommended!!

Blood Mug (Red Farlow Mysteries Book 4) by W.F. Ranew – Review by Katie Matthews

Blood Mug (Red Farlow Mysteries: #4)Blood Mug by W.F. Ranew
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Another intriguing read from this author and one that had me engaged from beginning to end. I find Red to be a really great character to read about, he has a great gut instinct when trying to solve the cases he is involved with and the author does a great job at making me as the reader feel like I am right there along Red trying to work out just what is going on. Blood Mug has a brilliant storyline that will keep you guessing until the very end. I definitely recommend this book and series to other readers!

Exhale and Move On AUDIO BOOK by K.L. Shandwick – Review by Katie Matthews

Exhale and Move On Audio Book

By K.L. Shandwick

5 stars

 

 

I loved this audio book! It was such a great listen, so much so I listened to it in one sitting. The narration was really good and easy to listen to. I hadn’t read the trilogy that features some of the characters in this story but it didn’t matter for me, I was completely engaged in Rik’s story, although it’s definitely made me want to read/listen to more from this author now! I’m not actually a fan of m/m stories but I this one was written really well so I wasn’t overly bothered by it and a hot, sexy rock star is always going to be a winner in my eyes! I definitely would recommend this story! I loved it from beginning to end and I’m looking forward to reading/listening to more from this author and this series of books again in the future.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. The narration was good and definitely brought the story to life. I really enjoyed the story; it was engaging and the characters’ story was great to listen to. I was really impressed with the authors attention to detail and because of the narration I really did feel like I was right there with the characters, I could imagine everything I was listening to. I haven’t read or listened to any of the other stories in this series but I definitely will be seeking them out now. I loved trying to solve the crimes and guess what was going to happen. A highly recommended audio book!

Flowers in December AUDIO BOOK by Jane Suen – Review by Katie Matthews

Flowers in December – Audio Book

By Jane Suen

4 stars

 

This was a really lovely audio book and I enjoyed listening to it.

I really enjoyed Connor’s story and could feel all of his emotions. I can only imagine the kind of loss that he is currently going through but he was really well supported by the local community. They all clearly loved his mother very much as did he. The way in which the author wrote this story felt like I was going through the grieving process with Connor. Along with Connor were some really lovely secondary characters, I especially liked Mary Ann; she seemed so sweet and genuine. The narrator really got the emotion of the story across well.
A beautifully written story and i would definitely recommend the audio book.

My Lips Are Sealed (Sealed With a Kiss Book 1) by Carmen Richter – Review by Katie Matthews

My Lips Are Sealed (Sealed With a Kiss #1)My Lips Are Sealed by Carmen Richter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

My Lips Are Sealed was a really great read, I like a forbidden romance story so this was definitely my kind of book. I was quickly engaged in although I will say I did struggle to connect with the main character Zoe at times, this may have been due to her age but there was just something however it didn’t mean that I didn’t like the story because I really did. There is definitely. Lot of angst and drama in the story and I did really feel a connection between the characters at times. I did feel for Zoe and the things she has been through. The author did a good job with getting the emotion across in the story. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.

Blue Summer Part One by Everly Taylor – Review by Katie Matthews

Blue Summer Part OneBlue Summer Part One by Everly Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

The synopsis for this book didn’t really give much away for what I was in for but I loved it! I loved going in blind and not knowing what to expect, I also love that I have found a new author to follow! The story was really good, I liked that it was original and something really different to read. The authors writing was engaging and entertaining. I was dragged into the story easily and my attention was held throughout. I liked the unpredictability of it. Lillie was a great character, I really liked her and I’m looking forward to the second book in the series!

Betrayal at the Beach (Dangerous Curves Book 1) by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Katie Matthews

Betrayal at the Beach: A Cozy Christian Mystery (Dangerous Curves Book 1)Betrayal at the Beach: A Cozy Christian Mystery by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I really like this author and I was really looking forward to this story and as usual I wasn’t disappointed. It was such a lovely book to read, the story flowed really well and I loved the characters. Sunshine really was a joy to read about, she certainly lived up to her name! I loved the mystery of the storyline and it definitely kept my interest throughout. One of the many things I love about this author is how she makes her characters so body positive, it really makes her characters so relatable – I just adore the way in which she writes.
I loved this book; it is definitely one of my favourites from this author and as always, I can’t wait for her next book release! Betrayal at the Beach is a must read and I highly recommend it!

READY FOR FLYNN, PART 1 (READY FOR FLYNN SERIES) AUDIO BOOK by K.L. SHANDWICK – Review by Katie Matthews

READY FOR FLYNN, PART 1 (READY FOR FLYNN SERIES) AUDIO BOOK

by K.L. SHANDWICK 

4 stars

 

 

I really enjoyed this book; I have to admit that I was almost put off by the length of time for the audio book but actually as I was so engrossed in what I was listening to the 11 hours went by really quickly. I did listen to it over a few days but it was a really good story and I really enjoyed it. It is definitely a slow story but definitely one worth sticking with. Valerie is one of those characters you have to get to know before you can decide whether or not you like her. And Flynn – well I loved him straight away! The narrator was good and did well to get so much emotion over from the story. I am really looking forward to the next part to Valerie and Flynn’s story.
