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

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

Blood Mug by W.F. Ranew is the fourth book in the Red Farlow Mysteries Series. This boom can be read as a stand-alone although personally I think reading them in order is best to get a full understanding of the main character.
This a great addition to the series. The book is full of intrigue right from the start. It started off with a bang and the author kept the twists and turns coming. I was instantly curious about what was going on and who was responsible. It was great to get back into reading about Red. He is an interesting character and one I fine easy to fall back into with each new book I read.
As with the other books in the series this one was well written and developed just right from start to finish. The author has created a strong series that is always a pleasure to read more if. This is a book well worth reading and I am excited to see what else might come in the future.

An Unexpected Bonding (The Unexpected Trilogy Book 1) by Lilly Rayman – Review by Kerry Baker

An Unexpected BondingAn Unexpected Bonding by Lilly Rayman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An Unexpected Bonding by Lilly Rayman is the first book in The Unexpected Trilogy. This book is a great mix of vampire, werewolves and other mythology that is all woven together intricately to create an interest and original story. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I really enjoyed the way the story was put together. The mix of different fantasy strands worked really well and provided a great balance to the overall story.
I enjoyed reading about the main characters as well. I thought they combination of their personalities was done with ease and I could really feel the connection they had between them. I easily got behind their story and wanted to see what was going to happen. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the moment I started reading and I am looking forward to the next in the series.

THE DEVOTED FAN (21ST Century Courtesan Book 5) by Pamela DuMond writing as P. S. DuMond – Review by Kerry Baker

THE DEVOTED FANTHE DEVOTED FAN by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Devoted Fan by Pamela DuMond is the fifth book in the 21st Century Courtesan series. I thought this book was a brilliant way to conclude the series. I have become invested right from book one and I thought the author did an amazing job of producing great stories through to the end. From the moment I picked up this book I knew I would be reading it in one sitting. I could not put it down and loved every minute of it.
Each book in this series has been well written and developed perfectly. The author has known exactly what pace has been needed to created a strong series and I think it will be one of those series that lasts. I would certainly recommend it to anyone and it won’t be too long before I read all of these books again!

Luce Eterna: Part 1 (The Luminara Series Book 5) by SJ Molloy – Review by Kerry Baker

Luce Eterna: Part 1: Book 5, The Luminara SeriesLuce Eterna: Part 1: Book 5, The Luminara Series by S.J. Molloy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Luce Eterna: Part 1: Book 5, The Luminara Series by S.J. Molloy is the next instalment of this fantastic series. This is a series that really needs to be read in order as it follows the same characters all the way through and is a continuation of their story.
This book is every bit as dark and intense as the other books but I think I found this on to be the most emotional. It felt like such a tumultuous rollercoaster and I never felt like I knew where the author was going to take us.
This is easily my favourite series of the year so far. It has been gripping from the moment started reading it and I cannot wait to see how this is all going to end. I am already itching to re-read it all from the start! This series is definitely worth your time.

The Way to Storey by L. B. Anne – Review by Kerry Baker

The Way to StoreyThe Way to Storey by L.B. Anne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Way To Storey by L.B. Anne is a great YA book that is imaginative and interesting. For me this whole book is about Luella. I fell in love with her straight away and had to read the book to find out what happened to her. Her journey was such an interesting one and I enjoyed going on it with her.
I thought the story itself was good. It was well written and had a great flow to it. It is the kind of book that would appeal to more than just its intended age range and is one I would certainly recommend.

Walker Pride (The Walker Family Series Book 1) by Bernadette Marie – Review by Kerry Baker

Walker Pride (The Walker Family, #1)Walker Pride by Bernadette Marie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Walker Pride by Bernadette Marie is the first book in the Walker Family series. This is a sweet romance story with a bit of mystery thrown in for good measure. I thought this was quite a quick and easy read that took no time to get into. The characters were relatable and engaging. They worked well together and has a strong connection.
At times I did struggle to connect with three story fully. It felt like there could have been a little more depth to it. However it was overall enjoyable and worth the read. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Chased (A Cambridge Men of Honour Novel Book One): A Dark Mafia Bad Boy Romance (Cambridge Men of Honour—Dark Mafia Romances 1) by Felicity Brandon – Review by Kerry Baker

ChasedChased by Felicity Brandon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Chased (A Cambridge Men of Honour Novel Book One): A Dark Mafia Bad Boy Romance (Cambridge men of Honour – Dark Mafia Tomances I) by Felicity Brandon is a dark and gripping tale of opposites colliding in the most unexpected way. For me this whole book was about it the characters and their chemistry. It was absolutely palpable right from the word go. Although Allegra did everything she could to fight it, it was just too strong to deny. This connection is what pulled me in and kept the pages turning.
This is a fantastic book and I am already looking forward to the next in the series.

Eye of the Storm (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 2) AUDIO BOOK by Amy McKinley – Review by Kerry Baker

Eye of the Storm Audio Book by Amy McKinley is the second book in the Gray Ghost series. After listening to book one I could not wait to jump straight into this audio book. I was so pleased to hear that it was the same narrator as book one and I found myself drawn straight back into her easy story telling. Again I loved how distinct each of the characters were and how easy it was to visualise everything – even easier than it was when I was reading the series. It is such and exciting book. I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed Chris and Mark’s story. For me they were a couple that worked right from the start and I was behind them all the way. This is a fantastic book and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.

Broken Circle: A Gray Ghost Novel, Book 1 AUDIO BOOK by Amy McKinley – Review by Kerry Baker

It Broken Circle Audio Book by Amy McKinley is the first book in the Gray Ghost series. This is an absolutely thrilling story that really throws you right into the middle of it.  Even though I had read the book previously when I was listening to this it was like I was experiencing it for the first time all over again. I almost forgot what had happened as I got lost in the narration of the book. It felt exciting to listen to this book and I thought the narrator did a great job. It was clear who each character was and I found picture then so vividly. I found myself relating a little more to Alex while listening to this book, more so than when I read it. This book is just as good to listen to as it was to read and I cannot wait to listen to the rest of the series!!

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

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 by Carmen Richter is the first book in the Sealed With A Kiss series. This is a book that is full of emotion and heartbreak right from the word go. It felt like you went on the journey with the character and experienced those emotions right alongside her.
I did think the story could have done with a little more depth to it. The basis was brilliant – boyfriend mysteriously vanished and announced dead, dealing with the aftermath of that. However it felt like at times the story became a little repetitive instead of detailed. I think if a bit of that had been stripped out and a little more flesh added to the story then this would have been fantastic. However it is the first book in a trilogy so it could be that it is just setting everything up for the next two. I will certainly be willing to give them a go!
