Love Surreptitiously by Tarrah Anders – Review by Kerry Baker

Love SurreptitiouslyLove Surreptitiously by Tarrah Anders
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love Surreptitiously by Tarrah Anders is a fun and romantic story perfect for losing yourself in. It is a quick and easy read, exactly what is needed for that lazy afternoon.
I thought the story overall was a fun and entertaining one, if a tad predictable at times. However I thought the characters were strong and well written which made up for that and meant I fully enjoyed the book regardless.
I always enjoy this authors writing style and how each book has a different feel from the last. They are all distinctive and yet have the same common feature about them – the fact that they are all great!! I would definitely suggest you give this author a try and this would be a great book to start with.

The Queen’s Dog (An Empire at Twilight Novel) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Kerry Baker

The Queen's DogThe Queen’s Dog by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Queens Dog by N.L. Holmes is the third boo in the Empire at Twilight series. This book can be read as a standalone although the whole series is worth the read. This book is exactly what I have come to expect from not only this series but this author. It was a detailed and well thought out story that really draws you in to what is happening. It is so easy to imagine everything the author is describing it really does feel like you are there with the characters.
I like how the authors interest in the historical side of these books clearly comes through. For me it makes the whole book a bit more interesting to read as you can really feel the intensity about it. This story really did have a bit of everything and I couldn’t hep but sympathise with the character the position he found himself in. This is a great book and I would definitely recommend it.

Shattered Reality (Summoned Book 1) by C.A. King, USA Today Bestselling Author – Review by Kerry Baker

Shattered Reality (Summoned Book 1)Shattered Reality by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered Reality by C.A. King is the first book in the Summoned series. This is a brilliant retelling of an old classic story brought into more modern times. The author has done an amazing job of making the story her own while also keeping the same mythological feel about it.
The story is everything I have come to expect from this author – well written, exciting and completely engaging from the moment I started reading. The characters were really interesting to read about as well. They added to an already strong storyline.
C.A. King really has become one of my firm favourites and this book is just one example as to why. I would highly recommend this book and I cannot wait to see what is next!

CAFE CONFIDENTIAL: An unfiltered and intimate memoirCAFE CONFIDENTIAL: An unfiltered and intimate memoir by Lynda Filler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cafe Confidential: An unfiltered and intimate memoir by Lynda Filler is an emotional and engaging book that is so vivid and easy to imagine. This is completely different from everything I have read previously by this author and it was lovely to be taken through her journey in such a wonderful way. The whole book has been written in a manner that makes it all seem so exotic and exciting while still also being completely relatable despite me not having had the same experiences.
I loved going on this journey with the author, it has really made me feel more connected to her than I though possible. This is a great book and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

Faerie's Magic (Seasons of the Fae Book 1)Faerie’s Magic by Jessica Feyden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Faeries Magic: a fae shifter romance by Jessica Feyden is the second book in the Seasons of Fae series. This book is an exciting fantasy story that will really grab your attention.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I have to say from the moment I saw it I absolutely knew I had to read it. The cover is so eye catching and enticing I just couldn’t wait to read the story hidden behind it.
For me this story was made entirely by the two main characters. They had so much stacked against them and yet will still so determined to fight. They were strong and interesting which made them great to read about. I enjoyed the book overall and the great story the author produced. A very good read and I can’t wait to explore more of her work.

Playing Series 3 Book Set by Stephanie Queen – Review by Kerry Baker

Playing Series 3 Book SetPlaying Series 3 Book Set by Stephanie Queen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Playing Series 3 Book Set: Sports Romance by Stephanie Queen is a collection for 3 sports romance novels but an amazing author. Each book is a different type of sports romance and each one is brilliant in its own right. The characters are all such strong characters that have great chemistry between them. I loved how different each couple seemed to the last I had read about – it made them so distinctive since I was read these books all at once.
The stories themselves were all well written. They were easy to engage with and I found myself flying through them so quickly I was enjoying them so much. They were fun and entertaining but also contained enough emotion and depth that you really got in to them all.
This author is one that I have become familiar over the past year or so and I have enjoyed everything that I have read by her. This is another great series and one I would highly recommend.

Child Of Prophecy by J Drew Brumbaugh is the second book in the Tirumfall Trilogy. This book is a fantastic follow up to book 1 and continues the story that you fall in love with. As soon as I started reading this book I was transported right back into this world and the characters that you get to know in book one. The book is full of adventure and fantasy and really is exciting to read. After enjoying book one so much I didn’t want to be disappointed and I was so pleased when the author delivered yet another high quality book. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this book and I cannot wait to read book three.

EAST BEACH (Red Farlow Mysteries No. 3) by W.F. Ranew – Review by Kerry Baker

East Beach (Red Farlow Mysteries: #3)East Beach by W.F. Ranew
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

East Beach by W.F. Ranew is the 3rd book in the Red Farlow Mystery series. This is a highly intriguing book that is full of twists and turns the entire way through.
This is one of those books that you really have to pay attention to as there is so much going on. The author has created a complex and intriguing plot that really keeps the pages turning. I gave up trying to figure out what was going to happen because the author was so good at leading down a certain path only to change things up in a second.
This book was well written and full of suspense it really was a brilliant book to read. I would definitely recommend this book!

Love On The Ropes (Love in Action, #1)Love On The Ropes by Aviva Vaughn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love in the Ropes by Aviva Vaughn is the first book in the Love in Action series. This is a fun and lighthearted book that is entertaining and from start to finish.
Having only read the Beckoned series by this author it was great to read something that had an entirely different feel to it and showcased this authors talent in a new way. I thought the book was a great story with some highly entertaining characters. They had such a great chemistry between them even if they didn’t like each other to start off with.
The whole book is well written and I found it really easy to get into. This is another great book by this author and I am looking forward to what comes next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Curse of the Sands (Relic Hunters) by Martin Ferguson is what I would class as good old fashioned action story! It is interesting to read about, filled with fun and adventure. It is an exciting read.
The author has created a story that is highly entertaining and felt like is action packed and fast paced from the start. I could easily imagine the scenes in this book and it made it feel like I was right there with the characters on their discoveries. I loved how the book made me think of the old adventure movies like The Mummy and Indiana Jones. It has such a nostalgic feel to it while a also feeling fresh and new. This is a great book and definitely worth your time.
