Fall to Pieces by Becky Flade – Review by Kerry Carr

Fall to PiecesFall to Pieces by Becky Flade
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a gripping story murder mystery with romance running through it. The characters were really well written. I loved Lexi’s character because she is strong and determined and she has overcome a lot to get where she is now. She give herself 100% to her job and bringing criminals to justice.
After losing her husband Lexi has thrown herself into her job however this isn’t always a smart idea.I love her character because she is strong and independent and is determined to get her killer.

Xavier has been brought in undercover to work as Lexi’s new partner. His job isn’t to help her solve the recent murder but on monitoring Lexi’s ability to do her job.

When a young boy is found murdered Lexi and Xavier now have to work together to get this child killer caught. But with all the secrets they both hold this case put their lives and jobs at risk. When romance is added to the mix things get more complicated and more dangerous. How will things go when the secrets are revealed? Can the focus on catching the killer before its too late?

Red’s Peril Part 2: The Prez’s Old Lady (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter #2) by Manda Mellett – Review by Kerry Carr

Red's Peril Part 2: The Prez's Old Lady (Satan's Devils MC Vegas #2)Red’s Peril Part 2: The Prez’s Old Lady by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second part of Red’s story and after reading the first part I was so desperate to see how this story and Red’s and Cheryl story would pan out. The author does an amazing job handling subjects such as Red’s son being non-binary. This subject is handled in an open and honest way and shows both sides such as the support but also the negative reaction that people can face.

From the first book the  connection between them was electric and after the reconnected all these years later the feelings haven’t changed. However they both need to relearn and get to know each other all over again. And its not just them. Red needs to learn how to juggle being the president of an MC with being a dad and Cher needs to learn about his life and his club and figure if there is a place for her and their son in it.
With both of them having very different lives now can they work through it all and make their relationship work this time? Will Red finally get the family and the woman he has always loved? Or will the club cause a wedge between them that becomes unfixable.

Strega – Magic: The Spirit Never Dies by Lynne Russell – Review by Kerry Carr

Strega - Magic: The Spirit Never DiesStrega – Magic: The Spirit Never Dies by Lynne   Russell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow I really enjoyed this story. I love how the author mixes past and present and how it works along a family tree. I think the element about reincarnated life’s was interesting too and added a different element to this story.

In every generation in Annie’s life the women have a gift. The gift of special powers. Throughout the years their gifts have been hidden as they were made to feel less superior to men. Having special gifts was seen as a curse and something to fear.

Fast forward to the present day and we meet Annie. Annie is training to be a doctor but that isn’t going great. She’s always in a relationship with Dillon but again it isn’t good. Looking to escape she leaves and finds Angel Rock. While getting herself together she uncovers her family history, how it links her to Angel Rock and sets her on the path to find a love so strong that even time and death couldn’t part it.

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J Berger Illustrator: KC Snider – Review by Kerry Carr

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus?Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J. Berger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a sweet book that I would recommended for children who get to the age where they start questioning if santa is real or not. This time of life can be quite upsetting for children as something they care about for years can get taken away.
However this story is about a young boys realisation that even if Santa is exactly the person he was led to believe, that he still exists as long as people believe in him. Lucas then sets out to help his parents keep the spirit of santa alive for his younger brother.
It’s a very heartwarming story and a great idea of a way to approach that question some parents dread of is Santa real?

Priscida Finds Greatness by Constance Mays – Review by Kerry Carr

Priscida Finds Greatness: In Herself and in OthersPriscida Finds Greatness: In Herself and in Others by Constance Mays
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a beautifully written children’s story all about a cat named Priscida. It’s her story about going from being a stray to finding a family that loves herself allows her to be herself and find her greatness.
This is a lovely story and teaches children that they can be great just by loving and by being loved by the people around them. That greatness isn’t about money or possessions but about the love that we share and it’s something we can share with everyone.

Broken ChainsBroken Chains by Karina Kantas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow this  book is definately not for the faint hearted. It is quite a brutal read and has scenes that some readers may feel is a trigger. However if you aren’t affected then this books is an amazing read. It has everything, murder, mystery, lies and deceit, Mafia families and romance.
I don’t want to go into the story because it will give it away but it is such a good read that I couldn’t put it down and read it in one sitting.

I loved our leading lady Liz. She is such an amazing strong character and even after all the trauma and abuse she goes through she still can love and trust which is amazing to read.

Whatever Tomorrow Brings (Embrace Tomorrow Duet Book 2) by Amy Argent – Review by Kerry Carr

Whatever Tomorrow Brings (Embrace Tomorrow #2)Whatever Tomorrow Brings by Amy Argent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second  book in the Embrace Tomorrow Series and wow its just as emotionally and captivating as the first one.

In this story we are back with Will and Tori. Will is still fighting Cancer and getting worse by the day. Even with his love for Tori isn’t enough to help him.
When he is given an option of treatment to help him maybe survive and beat this cancer Will jumps at the chance.

The road that is ahead of them both is painful and heartbreaking. There are moments when you feel like Will is going to give up and moments when Tori is so heartbroken she doesn’t know how she is going to be strong enough to get him through it.

Their journey for the life they want together is going to be hard and just when you think they are winning something else brings them down but through it all the love they share is unwavering and unconditional. It’s so beautiful to read.

Conveniently Yours (Titans Of Manhattan #1)Conveniently Yours by Anise Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this story. It is fast paced and the author does an amazing job with the characters. Both characters are strong in their own way and how their stories and lives come together is special.

However his life is about to change when his uncles give him an ultimatum as his dying wishing, find a wife or lose the business. Now Caspian is in a race against time to find someone to marry. It can be anyone after all it only needs to last 1 year and 1 day. And who needs to marry for love.

THE BOX (HER THREE IMMORTALS BOOK 4) by HAZEL STORM – Review by Kerry Carr

The Box: A Greek Gods Urban Fantasy Romance (Her Three Immortals Book 4)The Box: A Greek Gods Urban Fantasy Romance by Hazel Storm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 4th book in the series and it is just as full of adventure and steamy romance as the previous 3 books. I would highly recommend reading the previous books in order as this builds the story and shows you how the characters are linked. With this being the last in this series it answers a lot of questions that appear during the other books.
It is full of twists and turns that mean you won’t be able to put it down.

Vanessa and her 3 gods are back. Vanessa is now set on a different path to get a box of beauty from the underworld. This mission is just as dangerous as the others and Vanessa must do it on her own as her gods have the deal with their mothers.

Each of the gods have problems with their mothers and now its time for them to finally sort it out once and for all but what consequences will that have? Not only for them but for Vanessa?

Meanwhile the connection and bond between Vanessa and her 3 gods grows stronger all the time and gets more intense as they all progress through this story together. If you like hunky gods, action packed adventure and steamy romance then this series is definately a good read.
