Wildcat: A Steamy Firefighter Romance by Carina Alyce – Review by Katie Matthews

Wildcat (MetroGen After Hours, #1)Wildcat by Carina Alyce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it. I really liked the characters Leslie and Trevor. They really did have a great amount of chemistry between them and I was definitely rooting for them throughout the story. I really admired Leslie, she clearly loved her job but being a female firefighter came with its problems and she really worked hard to prove herself. Although this was a short story it definitely wasn’t short on detail and it had a great pace and flow. I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another wonderful instalment to this series. I loved the storyline and the author definitely kept me hooked form beginning to end. I was completely engaged with the mystery I the story and really did feel like I was right there with the characters at times. The authors imagination really shines through in this book and her attention to detail make it a very exciting book to read. The characters Ketil and Sigrid are great characters to read about and I am excited for more from them in the future!
This was a great read and one that I would highly recommend.

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan Book 2) by Anise Storm – Review by Katie Matthews

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan #2)Imperfectly Yours by Anise Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am going to completely honest that I almost didn’t read this book, the authors warning triggered many things for me but I felt like I needed to know if she could write about these things as well as I anticipated and I have to say she absolutely did. Was it hard to read at times – yes, did I cry remembering some of these things happening to me – absolutely but I absolutely cannot fault the authors writing. It was excellent, she had clearly thought about everything she wrote about and this really was an amazing story. I was hooked from beginning to end and did feel like I was right there with the characters at times, the emotion and heartbreak came across really well.
A truly wonderful read and I 100% recommend it.

Face the FireFace the Fire by Michele Sims
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was really looking forward to reading the fifth book in this series and I wasn’t disappointed. It was great to catch up with Miles and Bella again and see their story progress and their story definitely isn’t plain sailing. There was so much going on in this book and it definitely captured my interest from beginning to end. There really is so much more to this story than meets the eye and I really enjoyed reading it. The author has a wonderful imagination and creative writing style and she certainly managed to engage me throughout this book and the previous ones. I would recommend reading the books in order to understand the characters and their relationships.
Overall, really great book and one that I would highly recommend.

Slick Running (Satan’s Devils MC #3) AUDIO BOOK by Manda Mellett – Review by Katie Matthews

Slick Running (Satan’s Devils MC #3) AUDIO BOOK

By Manda Mellett 

5 stars

 

If I could I would totally insert the crying emoji first for this audiobook! What a way to start the third book in this series! Talk about emotional!! Slick is one of those characters that when you start listening about him you really question him and his personality but he’s been hurt and I can kind of understand him but it really didn’t take long for me to fall in love with him just as I have with the other brothers in this MC. Once he realised what had happened to Ella that MC protectiveness took over! As well as the amazing writing from this author the narrator really managed to bring this story to life and certainly added to the emotional parts of it even more!

A fantastic 5-star audio book that I highly recommend you listen to!

Theodore’s Ring by Stacy-Deanne – Review by Katie Matthews

Theodore's Ring: BWWM Action Adventure RomanceTheodore’s Ring: BWWM Action Adventure Romance by Stacy-Deanne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This was a really good read! Fast paced and definitely a page turner! I have read books by this author previously so knew her writing was engaging and she definitely had my attention with this one! Lydia was a fun character to read about and I felt like I was with her at times as she battled to save her boyfriend. The authors imaginative writing really came through in this story and the humour that was interjected made the story better to read. This is only a short read and to be honest I would have happily had read a longer version of it. Overall, a great read and one that I would recommend to others!

Shake Loose the Border (Thunder on the Moor Book 3) by Andrea Matthews – Review by Katie Matthews

Shake Loose the Border (Thunder On The Moor Book 3)Shake Loose the Border by Andrea Matthews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I’ve been looking forward to reading the latest instalment of this series and the author did not disappoint at all. The story was as well written and exciting as the previous two and I loved being transported back in time with the characters. The authors descriptive writing hasn’t wavered over the three books, I continue to be able to imagine exactly what I am reading at time. In this third book we see Maggie and Will preparing for their special day but with time travel involved its clear things aren’t going to go to plan! I really feel like I know these characters so well now and I love the twists and turns in their story.
This really was a fabulous read and I am definitely looking forward to more from this author!

Exiled South by Harriet Cannon – Review by Katie Matthews

Exiled SouthExiled South by Harriet Cannon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This was such an interesting story to read. After I had read the synopsis something about the story had me intrigued, it’s not usually something I would read but I thought I would give it a go and I really did enjoy it. The author’s writing was brilliant, really engaging and I found that the characters were really relatable. The main character, Lizbeth, had a real determination about her and I was really willing her to overcome the obstacles in her way to find out what she wanted to find out about and fill in some of those important family missing blanks.
Overall, this was a lovely read, somewhat unexpected and one that I would highly recommend.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have really enjoyed this series so was definitely looking forward to this newest instalment and I wasn’t disappointed. It carried the same amount of humour I’ve come to expect from the story and also the brilliant characters. I loved the plot for this book it was very entertaining and made the story really fun to read. As always, the authors world building was spit on blending together real life and the paranormal! I also love the title to the story too!
As always with this author I highly recommend her work and this story in particular is one of my favourites from her!

States of Grace (Grace Locke Mystery Series) by Mandy Miller – Review by Katie Matthews

States of GraceStates of Grace by Mandy Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

I really enjoyed this book, when I first read the synopsis, it sounded like an interesting read and I was pleasantly surprised by it. I believe this is the authors debut novel and what a novel it is! She should certainly be proud of the book she has written, it was exciting, engaging and had some great twists and turns. I really liked the character, Grace; she was a really complex character and I felt like the deeper I got into the story the more I found out about her and got to know and understand her better. I definitely felt like I was in the middle of a court case at times, it felt very real to read! After finishing this story, I am definitely looking forward for more to come from this author!
