Caine (Men of Syn Book 2) by Anise Storm – Review by Katie Matthews

Caine (Men of Syn, #2)Caine by Anise Storm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

After loving the first book in this series I was really looking forward to getting started on Caine and it didn’t disappoint. It was everything I was expecting – dark, exciting and very sexy! I loved Caine and Emery’s story – brilliant from the very first page until the very last, I wasn’t actually sure I was going to like Emery, it did take me a whole to warm up to her but I enjoyed seeing her evolve as the story progressed and seeing how the relationship between her and Caine changed also.
This is definitely a recommended read from me!

No Way Out (Mafia Elite, #1)No Way Out by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

What a way to kick of a new series! I love this author there’s no denying it so I was really excited when I saw this new release from her and wow what an amazing read! I was hooked from beginning to end. I love mafia romance and this was the perfect example of that genre! Action, tension, angst, romance – this book had it all and more! I LOVED Max – oh my gosh he was totally swoon worthy! Liliana really surprised me actually, I didn’t expect her to be so strong but she was amazing! She held her own when she needed to. I absolutely loved both of them together and their story was so exciting to read! I can’t wait for more from this author!

Fight for it by Amy L Gale – Review by Katie Matthews

Fight for It (Sunset Cove)Fight for It by Amy L. Gale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

I really enjoyed this story, it was easy to read, had a nice pace and flow and great characters too. I love sports romance stories so this one was right up my street! I loved Ray! I really felt for him and everything he went through – boxing was so important to him. Alyssa was such a lovely character too; she had been through a lot as well. I think as soon as these two came together again I could tell there was something. They had a genuine and real connection and a lot of chemistry too!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to other readers.

TAINTED by Marsha R. West – Review by Katie Matthews

TaintedTainted by Marsha R West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Tainted was a really enjoyable read. It didn’t take me long to become fully absorbed in what I was reading. This is the first book that I have read by this author and definitely won’t be the last. I really like the main character, Liz; she had been through so much in her life and she dealt with it so well. She was a likeable character and I enjoyed reading about her. The cabin in the mountains that she went down sounded so lovely and idyllic, definitely what Liz needed after everything with her husband. Sparks definitely flew when she was faced with someone from her past. I loved the twists and turns in the story, the author did a great job with the suspense running through the book.
Overall, I thought this was a great read and one I would highly recommend.

The Sound of Silence AUDIO BOOK by Dakota Willink – Review by Katie Matthews

The Sound of Silence AUDIO BOOK

by Dakota Willink

5 stars

 

What a read!! From beginning to end I was completely gripped by the story – I am so glad I found this audio book. The main characters were just great – Giana –what an amazing person, her pure determination and strength considering her past just amazed me – she was so determined to start over and try and forget what she endured. In Derek I just knew she had found the perfect person to try and help her with her new life – his patience was so endearing at times. I was definitely rooting for them the whole way through. There were some great twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat at times. The narration of the story was particularly good and definitely brough the story to life in my opinion! A fantastic 5-star audio book!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

This was such a fun read I absolutely loved it. I loved the banter between the characters and I loved that it was such a light hearted read, such a pleasure to read. I have read books by this author previously and I’ve really enjoyed her writing. Ivory was so great to read about and Li Qiang was such a lovely person. I really enjoyed reading about them together. The secondary character sin the story were really good too and definitely added that extra layer to the characters’ lives.
Overall, a really fun and refreshing read and one that I would highly recommend! I can’t wait to read more from this author again!

Jake the Growling Dog Shares His Trail (Jake the Growling Dog Book 3) by Samantha Shannon – Review by Katie Matthews

Jake the Growling Dog Shares His TrailJake the Growling Dog Shares His Trail by Samantha Shannon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I love these stories so much! I read this one to my little boy and even though he is only 2 he loved looking at the pictures and shouting dog every time he saw Jake! The storyline for this book was great and for older children there are so many times you can stop and discuss what is going on. Its definitely a wonderful way to get children thinking and especially at times when children face new things in their lives for example starting school and worrying about new friendships.
I love these books and hope that there will be another Jake adventure to read about soon!

SPOOKED BY A SUSPICION by Risa Nyman – Review by Katie Matthews

Spooked by a SuspicionSpooked by a Suspicion by Risa Nyman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

I really enjoyed the first book that I read by this author o when I saw this sone pop up I couldn’t wait to get started and I wasn’t disappointed. The author’s writing is really engaging and I find her characters so easy to read about. They are well thought out and planned. I really felt like I was trying to solve what was going on alongside Rocky and his girlfriend. Although this is a young adult read, I really enjoyed it and definitely feel that readers of all ages would enjoy it. The storyline is engaging but not overly complex for younger readers to enjoy and I think they would definitely find the characters good to red about.
I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

THE MARCY SERIES BOXSET: BOOKS 1-3 by Linda J. Burson – Review by Katie Matthews

The Marcy Series Box Set: Books 1-3The Marcy Series Box Set: Books 1-3 by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

The Marcy Series box set is a great set of books to read. I really enjoyed them and would definitely recommend them to other readers. The set contains books 1-3 in the series – Rage, Confusion and Agony &Ecstasy. I really enjoyed the authors writing, it was very engaging and there were some great twists and turns along the way.

I really like Marcy she is such a great character to read about. She is quite a complex character that you really do have to get to know and understand. There was so much going on for her and she has some real heart-breaking decisions to make. I think by the end of this book I really felt like I knew Marcy well.

The authors writing definitely developed as the stories progressed and I am really looking forward to reading more from her in the future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

After reading book 1 in this series, I was very excited to get my hand on this second instalment and I was not disappointed! Again, the pace was good and the authors writing so exciting to read with amazing attention to detail – I devoured this book in only a few hours! I loved reading about Christian and Delilah – amazing characters to read about. I loved the connection that these two characters had, there was a definite genuine love between them. I really liked Christian! He was definitely my favourite character out of this book! I am very excited to read about more of the vampires in this series!! Another fantastic 5 star read and again highly recommend!
