Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series #1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Kerry Baker

Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series Book 1)Mountains Wanted by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mountains Wanted by Phoebe Alexander is the first book in the Mountains Wanted series. This is the start of yet another fantastic series by one of my favourite authors.
When I started this book I knew that I had to set aside the whole afternoon as once I picked it up I would not be able to put it down. I was hooked immediately with this book, drawn in to the stories and the characters.
The characters did work well together and I liked the development you could see between them. At first their relationship was a little awkward but it became so much more. I really enjoyed seeing this instead to two perfectly made people.
The story had enough romance and action to keep it interesting and fast paced. It was a brilliant start to the series and I cannot wait for the next one.

Chasing StarlightChasing Starlight by Jennifer Siddoway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Chasing Starlight: Cassandra’s Story by Matilda Reyes and Jennifer Siddoway is a story in the Daughters of Night Chronicles. This book is a brilliant read and one that you will not want to put down once you start!
Both of these authors are new to me and this book is a great way to learn about them. The whole book was so well written – both the characters are the story line are developed perfectly, with just the right amount of suspense and excitement.
The story was different to other books I have read in this genre. It felt fresh which made it, for me, even more exciting to read. This was a fantastic book and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. I cannot wait to read more by these authors.

Landing the Lawman (Hills of Texas #5) by Kadie Scott – Review by Kerry Baker

Landing the Lawman (Hills of Texas, #5)Landing the Lawman by Kadie Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Landing the Lawman by Kadie Scott is the fifth book in the Hills of Texas series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although personally I think all these books are worth reading.
As usual when I picked up this book I found myself reading a sweet and heartwarming story. This book is about the final Hill sibling, Carter, a character that I definitely loved. Her connection with Logan is lovely to read about. They have such a believable chemistry that made the book even better.
The story was a well written one, developed well with a great pace to it. I easily found myself lost in the story and it was such a fun read.
I have loved this series from the start and, although I am sad to see it end, I am please with how the author tied it all up. This definitely worth a read and one I will certainly go back to in the future.

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash – Review by Kerry Baker

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytalesThe Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash is a brilliant collection of short stories.
Books like this aren’t usually the type or think I enjoy and yet each and every story I read I enjoyed so much. The stories were well written and packed with such detail that they each felt like a full length novel.
The characters were all brilliant. They were developed well, each one progressing as the story did. Part of the reason why I tend not to like these books is I usually mix the characters up the more of the stories I read. However with these book each ones were completely separate and easy to remember.
Although still not my favourite type of book I definitely enjoyed this one and would certainly read more by this author in the future.

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart isThe Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is by Jacquie Biggar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart Is by Jacquie Biggar is a book so well written it will feel like you are part of this family.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I can definitely say it will not be my last. This book absolutely captivated me from the start. The author does an incredible job of drawing you into the world of these characters and really making them seem real.
For me it really felt like this book was all about the story. It was well developed and interesting. The author didn’t rely on all the usual tricks you find in some many books and instead has clearly focused on writing a great book. I would definitely highly recommend this book to everyone and I cannot wait to read of this authors work.

Broken by Love (The Full Circle Series) by MJ Masucci – Review by Kerry Baker

Broken by LoveBroken by Love by M.J. Masucci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Broken By Love by MJ Masucci is a story of a woman caught between her past and her present.
I was intrigued by the story from the moment I read about this book and knew it was one I had to try. I hadn’t read anything by this author before so didn’t know what to expect when I turned the first pages.
I did struggle to connect with the characters a little bit throughout this story. I couldn’t quite work out who I thought was best for her – if any of them – and it made it a little hard to engage with them. The story was pretty good though and had so redeeming qualities about it. Although there we aspects of it I found rushed I thought the author did ok overall good job on the story line. It certainly kept me turning the pages.
I would definitely give this book another go and I will definitely look into more work by this author.

THE RUNAROUND: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy (CAROLINA CONNECTIONS BOOK 6) By SYLVIE STEWART – Review by Kerry Baker

The Runaround (Carolina Connections #6)The Runaround by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Runaround: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy by Sylvie Stewart is the sixth book in the Carolina Connections series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
Whenever I pick up a book by this author I know I am going to enjoy it. This book however blew my expectations out of the water. I loved Ari and Jax. The connection between them was fantastic. I laughed along with them, a found myself getting choked up a time or two. They really made me feel like I was on their journey with them.
I loved the story as well: it felt different to most other single dad stories I have read recently. It was entertaining and well written. This book ticked all the boxes for me and I will definitely be going back to read the rest in the series.

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay – Review by Kerry Baker

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2)Taming Zane by Lisa Lanay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Taming Zane by Lisa Lanay is the second book in the Almost Perfect series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although it does reference the characters from the previous book.
I found this to be a really easy book to get into. The story kicked off straight away and was enjoyable immediately. The characters were easy to like and were fun and engaging.
Although there were a few times where the story seemed to lose direction or momentum a little it was still enough to keep my attention the whole way through. This was a fun book to read and I hope we get more from the series in the future.

Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash Book 2) By Amanda Marin – Review by Kerry Baker

Sky to Sea (Crimson Sash, #2)Sky to Sea by Amanda Marin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sky to Sea by Amanda Marin is the is the second book in the Crimson Sash series. This series does need to be read in order to fully understand what is happening.
It had been a while since I had read book one but I found it really easy to pick up from where it left off. I soon found myself immersed back into the characters and their stories.
This book was well paced and exciting. You really have to feel for Neve and Micah. They really thought they had found the place for them to be safe and happy and instead they find themselves mixed up in more turmoil.
The author has done a great job with the continuation of this series and I can wait to see what comes next.

REBOUND (REWIND BOOK 4) By Rowan Shaw – Review by Kerry Baker

Rebound (Rewind #4)Rebound by Rowan Shaw

Rebound by Rowan Shaw is the fourth book in the Rewind series. This book can be read as a stand-alone however personally I would read them in order to get the full experience.
As with the rest of this series what was so good about this book was how engaging and relatable the characters are. Even if they are going through things you haven’t been it was so easy to envisage their journey, their struggles.
I really loved Noah. He is one of those characters I just connected with instantly. And how the author portrays polyamorous relationships is brilliant. As someone not at all familiar with that type of relationship it was made easy to understand.
This is a fantastic book and one I thoroughly enjoyed.
