The Chosen: Book One: The Orb Quest Series by Cari Shaeffer – Review by Katie Matthews

The Chosen (The Orb Quest Series, #1)The Chosen by Cari Schaeffer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

The Chosen was a brilliant and captivating read by Cari Schaeffer –it is also the first book that I have read by her and the first thing that I noticed was how fantastic her writing was. It was imaginative, creative and very entertaining. The action started straight away which I loved; it meant that I was already hooked into the story from the very first page. I really enjoyed the plot for the story and thought that it was very unique and my attention was definitely held throughout the book. I really liked the characters in the story and the bond that they had going through, I especially liked Gemma, I thought that she had this real determination about her along with a fierce loyalty that I admired!
I am really looking forward to seeing where the author takes this series and I can’t wait to read the next book.

Knights Who Won My Heart (Knights Series Book 4) by Sonya Jesus – Review by Katie Matthews

Knights Who Won My Heart (Knights, #4)Knights Who Won My Heart by Sonya Jesus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I have been anxiously waiting for the fourth book in this series to be released and the author did not disappoint at all!! It was an amazing read and I loved every second of it. Amelia’s story has had me hooked from the very beginning and I think the author was definitely saving the best until last with this final installment! This is definitely my favourite of the series (and I loved all of the others!) the emotional roller-coaster that the author took me on was immense. I laughed, I cried, I swooned, I felt everything that the characters did and I am really sad that this series is now over. I could happily read more! With every turn of the page something different happened and I was on the edge of my seat on more than one occasion! The level of suspense was brilliant and the twists and turns made for an even more exciting read than I was anticipating. If you have read and loved this series so far then you will not be disappointed in Knight Who Won My Heart – I know I wasn’t and I am looking forward for more to come from this author in the future!

The Billionaire and the Therapist (Clean Billionaire Romance Reads Book One) by Kim Koby – Review by Katie Matthews

The Billionaire and the Therapist (Clean Billionaire Romance Reads, #1)The Billionaire and the Therapist by Kim Koby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

The Billionaire and the Therapist was a wonderful read. I do have a soft spot for a Billionaire story (wishful thinking for me I think sometimes!!) but sometimes they can be very much the same however I love that this was one different. Kim Koby took a genre and made it different to anything that I had read before. Whilst I love the hot and steamy romance stories I also love a nice clean romance like this one and I just adored every minute of it! I fell in love with the characters straight away- I felt for John and everything that he had been through – at times I could feel the desperation that he was feeling when trying to help his daughter. I could feel the connection he had with Natalie straight away and I was definitely rooting for them the whole way through!
I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series and more from this author again in the future.

The Protector: MAC (Cover Six Security, Book 1) By Lisa B. Kamps – Review by Katie Matthews

The Protector: MACThe Protector: MAC by Lisa B. Kamps
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Wow! What an absolutely, amazing read! The Protector: MAC is one of those books that you want to start all over again just so you can experience everything for the first time! I was completely gripped from the very beginning and everything around me ceased to exist until I had finished! I have read a few books from this author in her other series but this book was something else. It was non-stop action with amazing characters! The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough because I needed to know what was going to happen next! And then it ended!! I need the next book now! I need to know what is going to happen! I need more from these wonderful characters and I need more of this author’s incredible writing! Mac and TR were fantastic characters to read about – they had an intense attraction to each other which in turn lead to some great chemistry!
I absolutely 100% recommend this story and I cannot wait for the next one!!

Tales of The Dragonfly Book III: Extended Flight by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Katie Matthews

Tales of the Dragonfly Book III: Extended FlightTales of the Dragonfly Book III: Extended Flight by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I adored this story! I knew that I would to be honest because Tamara Ferguson is one of my favourite authors. I love how her books from her other series that take place in the same place have overlapped with this series, her stories intertwine beautifully. I think after every book I say ‘this one is my favourite’ and I’m going to say it again! I was completely captivated by Aaron and Kiley’s story! From the very first page until the last I couldn’t put the book down. I loved that it was a little different to what I was expecting – I love the action, the drama and of course the romance!!
It is without doubt that I would recommend this book to everybody and not just this one. I don’t think you will be disappointed by anything this author writes – her stories are amazing, always emotional, thought provoking at times and at the core have the most amazing characters you could want to read about!
I am looking forward to her next book already!!

Happily. Ever After? An Italian Relationship (The Italian Saga Book 6) by Gaia B. Amman – Review by Katie Matthews

Happily. Ever After?Happily. Ever After? by Gaia B. Amman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This is the second book that I have read by this author now and I love that I always feel like I am transported to the country or place where her stories are based. I have always wanted to visit Italy and through Ms Amman’s beautifully vivid descriptions I almost feel like I have been. It was a really unique story that definitely made me stop and think a few times. I enjoyed reading about the complexities in human relationships sometimes and how many times opposites definitely attract!
The pace of the story was slow and it did take a while to get going but I didn’t really mind that. I felt like I got to know the characters well and it meant I could really enjoy the author’s beautiful writing. I read the first book in this series and this one is the sixth but is easily read as a standalone.
I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from her again in the future!

Immortal Desires Anthology – Review by Katie Matthews

Immortal DesiresImmortal Desires by Melanie James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

The Immortal Desires Anthology was a wonderful collection of stories and I thoroughly enjoyed every one that I read. I loved that there were authors in the anthology that I had read previously and also some new to me authors! I love finding new authors to read. Each story brought something different to the collection and they were all excellently written. I was really excited to see Jennifer Theriot (JD Frettier) included in this set as I love her writing and Flirty Dancing was definitely one of my favourites from this collection. Her writing never fails to entertain me and I liked that it was linked to other books that I have read by her.
If you are a fan of paranormal stories then there is definitely something for you in this anthology – I thought that it was a wonderful collection of stories that I highly recommend!

WTF, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah – Review by Katie Matthews

WTF, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of TransitionWTF, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Being totally honest I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this book. I am not religious at all but I thought it would be interesting to read this book and see how people who do believe in God think and feel about situations. I found the author to be really connectable and I enjoyed reading her story. I could imagine some of the situations happening and had a sense of understanding in the way that she dealt with things. I thought that it took courage for the author to be so open and honest about her beliefs and the story did a have deep and personal feel about it.
I haven’t read anything by this author previously but I definitely would like to read more from her again in the future. A thought provoking book that I enjoyed reading. @katiem

Dancing Queen by Charlotte Roth – Review by Katie Matthews

Dancing QueenDancing Queen by Charlotte Roth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I loved this book!! This was such a wonderful, easy to read story and I absolutely fell in love with the characters Fiona and Stu! I felt like I could really connect with Fiona, the way in which the author write about her made her feel like she was real. I really felt like I wanted to be there on the side lines cheering her along every step of the way. I was truly inspired by Fiona, her story and her outlook on life. The author cleverly intertwined funny with emotion and explored situations that made you think about how society view and judge people all the time based on what they look like.
I have read a few books by this author now and I do love her fun and quirky writing style. Her stories are entertaining to read and I 100 % recommend them!

If the Shoe Fits (The Liberty Lawrence Series Book 3) by Bea Stevens – Review by Katie Matthews

If The Shoe Fits... (The Liberty Lawrence Series Book #3)If The Shoe Fits… by Bea Stevens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I have absolutely adored this series and I was so excited to read another instalment in the series. Again it didn’t disappoint – Libby is one of my favourite characters to read about, she makes me laugh so much with what she does but I just know that if she were real I would totally want to be friends with her. The authors writing is excellent, I just find myself captivated by her storytelling as soon as I pick up one of books. The characters she has created are genuine and likeable and I have loved reading about them. There were some great twists in this book too that I wasn’t expecting! I am also a little bit in love with James too!!
I am so looking forward to reading more from Bea Stevens again in the future and if you are looking for a rom com with a little suspense thrown in then I 100% recommend this book and the series!
