FURY OF CONVICTION (The Dragonfury Series Book 2) by Coreene Callahan – Review by Kerry Carr

Fury of Conviction (Dragonfury Short Story Collection, #2)Fury of Conviction by Coreene Callahan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really good read. I like the supernatural element in the story revolving around dragons and the romance between Hamersveld and Natalie is really special.

Natalie has been kidnapped to use as part of a breeding programme to help create more baby dragons.
Hamersveld is one of the dragons in the pack. When he sees Natalie he vows to rescue her. However he can’t take her as his own due to the fact he can’t produce babies.
Still he needs to rescue her and when he does the connection between them is amazing. So fully committed to each other it would make for a perfect ending. However things aren’t that good. Natalie has to leave before the rest of Hamersveld’s pack come and take her back to the breeding programme.
With both their hearts breaking it is a classic story of if you love someone you have to let them go. But will this be the end for Natalie and Hamersveld or just the beginning.

Bared. (Green St. Girls #1)Bared. by N.D. Jackson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is A Green St Girls Romance. I really enjoyed this book. The author does a great job of dealing with tragic events such as death and guilt in a considerate way. The story is deep and sad in parts but the romance is hot and steamy.

Tru is only going to be there for the tournament so he wasn’t looking for anything long term. However, Athena rocks his world. He wants to know everything about her, including what happened to make her build her walls so high.

Will Athena be able to protect her heart against Tru? Can Tru break down her walls to enter her heart? And what happens if they fall for each other? What happens when a quick fling turns into a passionate romance?

Manifested Dreams by Dr. Yvonne Johnson -Review by Kerry Carr

Manifested DreamsManifested Dreams by Yvonne Johnson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really beautifully written book about one person’s family  history. I love how the history was written in letters given down the generations.

It follows a family’s history from being slaves to white people to the first black president. The story is interesting and really opens your eyes to what people had to go through in the past when things were all against them just because of the colour of their skin.
It was a captivating read that I really enjoyed.

Pet Me (The Toye Shoppe Book 1) by Angelique Jurd – Review by Kerry Carr

Pet Me (The Toye Shoppe #1)Pet Me by Angelique Jurd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a lovely written  MM romance. The author does an amazing job with the characters. The portrayal of Bayley as a shy almost frightened young man and Sam who is confident and knows what he wants.
The story does contain references to pony play but it’s beautifully done between 2 consenting adults. The attraction between them is impossible to ignore but Bayley’s shyness makes things harder for Sam to judge what he wants.
This book is a sweet romance about founding out each others needs and wants but also taking things slow and experimenting together. As sweet as the romance is there is plenty of passion between them.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love these books. I love how the author is able to transport you back in time to a era long gone. Because it is a historical romance the language reflects that which sometimes could get a little confusing but it didn’t take away any enjoyment  I had for this book.
As well as a sweet romance there is also danger, secrets, Mysteries and murder which makes this book a def page turner.

Why had her house been on fire? Why did her mum pass was it an accident or something sinister? And what secrets did her mum keep in a box. Did things happen the way Elizabeth thinks or are your memories mixed up by a child’s imagination? That’s what Elizabeth sets out to find answers too.

Taking a job as the school teacher she meets JP Honeycutt. Immediately feeling an attraction she tries to distance herself from this man and his charms. However when she becomes a suspect in a murder the only person riding to her rescue is him.

Can she let herself learn to love again? And what secrets does JP hold which could hold the answers that Elizabeth is trying to find.

Wow. I was waiting on the edge of my seat for this book and I wasn’t disappointed. I have loved all of the Satan Devil books but this one was out of this world and a great conclusion. This is a book full of suspense and danger. The emotion between all the characters are real that you feel every one. From the despair and hate, to worry and fear.

Chatroom With A View by Glenn Maynard – Review by Kerry Carr

Chatroom with a ViewChatroom with a View by Glenn Maynard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really gripping story. It is very dark and intense but is a story that will captivate you from the beginning. I love how realistic this book is especially with regard to the chatrooms and the talk inside there. Everyone always pretends to be someone they aren’t.  It’s a fast paced story full of twists and turns that I definately recommend reading.

It starts off very dark with a murder and an incident that leaves Troy alone in a world that keeps spinning around him. Troy’s dad is an abuser, who always used violence so is that a gene that Troy now possesses.
With his world spiraling out of control around him he decides to take revenge over his 2 co-workers who are misleading and hurting men on this chat site. Armed with his two fake profiles Troy wants to teach them both a lesson but how far will he go.

Add to this the stress of Troy’s last encounter with Veronica resulting in her being pregnant. Veronica is now set on being a family with Troy and the baby until she researches Troy’s family and finds out about the risk of the killer gene. Will she keep her fantasy of being a happy family or will she run to protect herself and the baby? Can she escape Troy when he finally realises he wants to be a dad or will her obsession of being a family mean its too late?
