The White Knight Cowboy Stacy-DeanneThe White Knight Cowboy Stacy-Deanne by Stacy-Deanne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this romance. It is sent in a time in the past and I enjoyed how the author gives us a background to the time and place the story is set.
This is a romance story and it’s very unique. This story is about Lovely Jo and Dusty.

Lovely Jo works as a maid for a well respected family in the town. When the man of the house turns up dead Lovely Jo is the number one suspect. Now she needs to run for her life and the person she runs to is Dusty.

Dusty is a widower who is up to eyes in debt. He is struggling to survive on his ranch after losing his wife.
When Lovely Jo arrives pleading for his help he is tempted to turn her in for the bounty on her head.
But things aren’t that simple. Their are feelings between Lovely Jo and Dusty that have never been allowed to be explored until now.
Could this be a sad story? Will they finally find love and happiness just to have it cruelly ripped away from them? Is Lovely Jo guilty of murder?

Savage Start (Hidden Valley Elite Prequel) by Isla Vaughn – Review by Kerry Carr

Savage Start: A High School Bully Romance: Hidden Valley Elite PrequelSavage Start: A High School Bully Romance: Hidden Valley Elite Prequel by Isla Vaughn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a really gripping short read. The characters are amazingly written. They have so much depth that you can’t help be drawn into their lives. Both the main characters Riley and Cole have traumatic lives. Both have family issues which affect them in ways no young adult should he affected.
Riley and her mum are on the run from her father. They never stay anywhere for long and because of this Riley has a distrust of people.
Cole’s family is very toxic. With a dad constantly cheating and his mother suffering from mental health problems it is a volatile mix.
The way Riley and Cole meet is unexpected but one thing is for sure they never forget each other.
This story does deal with some issues that may cause a trigger for some people like mental illness and the consequences of untreated mental illness. The author handles this in an emotionally honest way which brings the situation to life and makes your heart break for the characters involved.

I can’t wait to see what is in store for Cole and Riley and if they will ever see each other again.

Titanian Warrior (Titanian Chronicles Book 3) by Victoria Saccenti – Review by Kerry Carr

Titanian Warrior (Titanian Chronicles #3)Titanian Warrior by Victoria Saccenti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 3rd book in the Titanian Chronicles. I do recommend reading the other books first however the story can stand on its own. If you read the first books you have a better understanding of the other characters and how they all fit together.
This is another amazing paranormal adventure story that will keep you gripped from the beginning. I love the whole fated mates part of these stories and how no matter what even when all hope is lost their mates show up. This is definately a story of good vs evil and how a good person can lose his way and risk turning to darkness..
It’s a very emotional story with lots of danger and action as well as a all consuming romance between Hagen and Faiza.
There is plenty of mystery and magic as well and even Faiza isn’t all she seems.
This story is an amazing collection of all aspects I love. From paranormal/magical beings, a romance that makes you fall so fast and deep and action and danger which keeps you fighting for these characters to succeed.

The 45th Parallel (Antipodes Series Book 6) by T.S. Simons – Review by Kerry Carr

The 45th Parallel (Antipodes, #6)The 45th Parallel by T.S. Simons
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 6th book in the Antipodes Series and it is definately one you need to read from the beginning. I have read them all and I have loved reading about the characters how their lives have changed and they have grown as well as all the challenges, loves, loss and danger along the way and this next installment is no different.

This story is following Caitlin and Seraphine. Both of these girls have been born with one specific role in life. To have babies and continue to populate the domes with people who have a better immunity to the disease that killed so many people. Because of their genetics any offspring then have will also carry the same genes and immunity.
But what happens when you don’t want to follow the path that has been laid out for you. Why can’t you just be your own person following your own dreams and desires wherever it may lead you? This is exactly the situation that Caitlin and Seraphine find themselves in. Their journey is one full of danger, conflict and love as well as secrets that will be revealed.
The question is what would you do if it was a choice between your happiness or saving your whole community?
This is what our 2 girls need to work out and it’s no easy task as they are challenged at every turn. We meet new characters and see new worlds all the while witnessing the growth of Caitlin and Seraphine.
This is one sci-fi adventure that will keep you turning pages until the end.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this sci-fi film romance. It was full of action and adventure that keeps you turning the pages. The author does an amazing job of describing to us the worlds that the characters are seeing and travelling to, it really brings the story to life.
The romance is so good as well. Its 2 people from different places but coming together to create something amazing.
Princess Mora has been sent to marry Prince Fidge. It is to create an alliance between the 2 worlds or so Mora’s family thought. However that isn’t what Prince Fidge’s family has planned at all. Now Mora has found this out she wants to marry him even less. All she wants is a chance to live her life her way and be free. And that chance comes in the form of Darin.

Darin is an outcast. He has connections to the space pirates and is seen as an enemy of the kingdom. All he wants to do is earn his credits so he can leave the land he is imprisoned on. He was never expecting to find love until Mrs Langley(Mora) came into his life.
Together they try to make things right, to make the moon people free, to end Darin’s imprisonment. But with secrets and deception will these two have a chance of making a romance work. What will happen when Darin finds out that Mrs Langley is infact Princess Mora?
This story is action packed with Sci fi adventure as well a burning romance between two people who are destined to be together even though everyone else disagrees.

Straight for the Kill (Benoit and Dayne Mystery Book 3) by Winter Austin – Review by Kerry Carr

Straight for the Kill (Benoit and Dayne Mystery, #3)Straight for the Kill by Winter Austin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great gripping crime Thriller. I just couldn’t put it down. It is 3rd book in the Benoit and Dayne Mysteries. It can be read as a standalone however I get the feeling if you read the series you get better understanding of the characters which is what I plan on doing. The author has wrote a story that is full of twists and turns so you never know what’s coming. There are loads of secrets and shady characters to keep you guessing about who is commiting these crimes.

When a young woman is found murdered on Halloween that is bad enough but when the resemblance is uncanny to a murder that happened 25 years ago on that same date things take a sinister turn.
Is that killer still active? Is it a copycat? One thing that Deputy Dayne knows is they need to find this person fast. However things aren’t that simple. With it being a small town everyone knows everyone and with the current sherrif and another deputy having links to one of the previous victims it’s hard to find people who can look at this case with unbiased eyes. Add to this the deception and lies being told by people further up the chain of command and it makes this already tricky and dangerous case even harder.
Who can Deputy Dayne trust? Who can work on this case that doesn’t have some link to the previous case? Who is involved and how will they react when they realise that Dayne is on their trail?

This is definately a read you won’t be able to put down

Vaughn’s Xena (Dirty Rockhard Billionaire Book 1) by M.I. Rosegold – Review by Kerry Carr

Vaughn's Xena (Dirty Rockhard Series, #1)Vaughn’s Xena by M.I. Rosegold
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book in the Dirty Rockhard Billionaire series. The author does an amazing job with this story. They descriptions and details that the author puts in really brings the story to live and paints pictures in the readers mind so strong if feels like your there.
I always love an Alpha male and Vaughan is definately an Alpha male. His feelings and possessiveness over Xena can sometimes feel a bit much but there is no denying that Xena loves that side of him. She has fantasised about him for a long time but she is completely blown away when fantasy meets reality.
The only downside and possible problem is that Xena is Vaughan’s sister’s best friend and that a line he promised not to cross. But can they deny themselves something that feels meant to be?
This is a very hot steamy read. It will have you laughing, crying and feeling so many different emotions through the story it will feel like a rollercoaster ride.

Underboss’s Retaliation (Sicilian Gods Book 2) by Via Mari – Review by Kerry Carr

Underboss's Retaliation (Sicilian Gods Book 2)Underboss’s Retaliation by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book 2 in the Sicilian God’s series. I am completely in love with these books. There is so much going in the stories that you feel like your holding your breath to find out what happens. There are so many twists and turns that always keep you guessing. There is danger and action as we learn about the war between Mafia families and their need for revenge and retribution. As well as all this we have the passion and desire we get from our main couple in the stories in this case it’s Dom and Emelia.

Emelia is the daughter of the De Rosa family. She was born and raised a Mafia princess. Dominic calls her a wildcat and he is not wrong. She isn’t the meek and mild princess people think. She has guts and can handle herself and she won’t let nothing or no one stop her from protecting her family. Even the enemy.

Dominic was never ment to fall in love with her. She’s the enemy after all. Nothing good can come from it but there is no denying the attraction and feelings between them. Dominic is prepared to risk it all, even disobeying his own family to be with Emelia. No matter the cost she is his.

What unravels is a whirlwind of a tail where deceit and secrets start to unravel, enemies are everywhere and you don’t know who you can trust. Will Dominic and Emelia’s forbidden relationship stand any chance of survival? Or will the waring families end it before it begins?

Whispers in the Waters (Blood of the Fae) by Sarah Chilson – Review by Kerry Carr

Whispers in the Waters (Blood of the Fae, #0.5)Whispers in the Waters by Sarah Chislon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book in the Book Of Fae series. It was a really entertaining story and a great start to the series. I love how the author wrote the story in the same way that the people of that era would talk and how the customs and peoples perceptions of magic and things they don’t understand is portrayed along with historical references.
This story has it all from danger and intrigue, to mystery and magic there is something for everyone.
Jessa is a young woman who is trying her hardest to fit into the accepted role of Lady in her society. However she is far from a normal Lady. She has a secret and it is one she needs to keep locked away unless she wants to end up in an institution.
When she joins her aunt on a journey to help a friend in need she gets more than she was expecting. There are secrets to uncover, a mystery to solve and someone out to cause harm to her aunt and the town she has come to care for.
Can she discover this person’s identity before its too late? Can she keep her own secret intact to protect herself? And what happens when secrets she didn’t know existed start to reveal themselves.

I enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to see where the series will go next.

Throwing the CurveThrowing the Curve by Lauren Fraser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is sports romance. It is the 2nd book in the Playing For Keeps series. It’s is an enjoyable read. I felt so sorry for Peyton. She starts the story finding out the guy she is dating is a married man and to keep this secret she is forced to pretend she is dating another member of the team Ryan.

Even though they hate each other they need to put on a good show to convince everyone they are a happy couple.
But what happens when pretending turns real. When anger and hate turned to attraction and want. Will Ryan see how wrong his impressions of Peyton are or will they continue to fight and push away from each other denying their attraction.

This is a story full of angst, friendship, and finding love when you least expect it.

Chasing Redemption (The Quimby Grove Series Book 2) by Shannon Nikole – Review by Kerry Carr

Chasing Redemption (Quimby Grove #2)Chasing Redemption by Shannon Nikole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Quimby Grove series. It is a beautiful story about second chance romance. The author does an amazing job with the characters. They are both very deep and the author does an great job of bringing them to life.
I love how fiesty Marley is. After having to plan and attend her best friends wedding to her ex she was broken but she still had enough of a spark to leave a parting shot in her speech which made me feel like cheering for her.
This event led her to the chance meeting with Max and it would be a night neither of them would forget and it would change their lives forever.
But it was just a one night stand right? No names were exchanged and there was no way for them to contact each other again. So imagine Marley’s surprise when years later she bumps into Max again at a wedding she’s planning. But that isn’t the only surprise in story as Marley has a big surprise of her own.
Can they finally get their happy ever after? Will Marley’s secret make them stronger or destroy them before they begin? And when a series of crimes start to happen in Quimby Grove will it be too much for the couple to endure?

This story is full of twists and turns, moments of fun and laughter and just as much emotional turmoil which makes this a read emotive romance to read

The Taste of Light (The Winemakers Book 2) by Giovanna Siniscalchi – Review by Kerry Carr

The Taste of Light (The Winemakers, #2)The Taste of Light by Giovanna Siniscalchi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a beautifully written romance sent in Portugal in 1872. It is the second book in The Winemakers series but it can be read as a standalone and still really enjoyed.I can’t express how beautiful the author’s language and story telling in. There is so much emotion put into every page that the reader cant help but feel every emotion along with the characters which makes the story completely captivating.
It is a historical romance and the author does an amazing job of transporting the reader back to those times. Our main characters Pedro and Anne seem such an unlikely match at first but as the story progresses we see the same strength and determination in them back.

This story is action packed as Pedro’s past comes back to haunt him and he struggles to make amends for it all. When his marriage to a princess falls through and he is accused of an attempt on the Kings life he is forces to go on the run.
Anne is a young sweet innocent girl who just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and finds herself on an adventure with Pedro that she never expected or imagined. She may seem young but inside she had a fire and a determination which makes her a fascinating character to read about. Add to this the fact that she is the sister of something Pedro has had problems with in his past, could their meeting be a coincidence? A way to maybe make amends? Or just another mistake that Pedro could pay for dearly.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really enjoyable romance. The author does an amazing job with the characters. The characters are both fun and witty and they have backstories which really make them come alive. This is a story about meeting the one for you but things and circumstances being in the way.

James Conner is know as a drunk. His life has spiralled out of control but now he’s determined to get it back on track and a marriage of convenience seems like a the right idea. Or so he thought.
What he didn’t anticipate was meeting the wedding planner and his future brides best friend and sharing a kiss with her that blows his mind.

Jasmine Hayes is a successful business woman. She takes no prisoners and is a straight talker. She runs her business with her best friend so when she gets a call about an emergency she rushes to her aid not realising she would come face to face and lips to lips with the man of her dreams. However there is one problem. He is promised to her best friend and she wants Jasmine to plan the wedding.

So this is where we find our couple. Both feeling the spark between them but unable to do anything about it. Will there ever be a time for them to be together? Will James be able to pull his life back on track and if he can will Jasmine be a part of it?
This story is full of laughed and tears which makes it an emotional read that you can’t put down.

Night Hawke (The Hawke Family Second Generation #0.5)Night Hawke by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the start of the series about the second generation of the Hawke Family and I am so excited because it seems like its going to be just as amazing as the first series.
This book is like a teasing glimpse into the story of Issac and Jack’s story and while it is full of hot steamy action and attraction there are definately secrets which need to be uncovered.
I don’t want to give too much away but its a great read. When 2 people set out for an easy one night stand to forget real life and all the impending stress, neither of them were expecting anything more. With fake names all they have is this time together. But what happens if one of them wants more? And what will the outcome be when the secrets are revealed

Married Blind (King of Screen Book 2) by Morgana Bevan – Review by Kerry Carr

Married Blind (Kings of Screen, #2)Married Blind by Morgana Bevan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved this contemporary romance. This is book 2 of the Kings of Screen series. Both of the main characters in this story have had hard pasts which make them the strong fiesty characters that we see. As the story progresses we learn their stories and their behaviours make sense.
I love the idea of marrying a complete stranger for a romance. Normally they meet and fall in love but in this story they didn’t get that option. The first time they met is their wedding day.

Finn is an actor who desperately needs to mend his reputation. Known as a playboy, messing with the wrong girl landed him in hot water and now he’s got to take drastic measure to make things right. Namely ending his playboy ways and getting married. It’s only for 3 months what could go wrong?

In walks Abi, she is everything Finn has dreamed about and more. Abi applied to the show to pay off her sister’s medical bills. She never imagined she would find romance but what happens when thats exactly what she wants from Finn?

Can a fake marriage turn into a real one? Will their attraction be enough for them to consider trying or will Finn’s past experiences mean he keeps pushing her away until he loses her for good?

I loved this story and couldn’t put it down as soon as I started.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow. What a start to this new series. I was really gripped by this story and I couldn’t put it down. I loved how actioned packed it was and the mixture of heaven and hell and trying to find your place in the world really makes this a page turner.
The characters are really well written and because of this you feel invested in their stories.

John is a demon hunter. He used to be a monk but not he main focus is ridding the world of demons. Demons that humans aren’t even aware exist. Little is known of John’s upbringing or parentage but when those secrets are reveled it leaves him in a state of not knowing who he is anymore. When he’s spent his life vanquishing demons can he change his views?
Added to this story is the missing bartender and Mick who asks for John’s help in finding him. But things arent what they seem here as well which leads to move secrets and discoveries that neither John or Mick are aware off.

This story is action packed and full of twists and turns. You feel like you don’t know who to trust in this story which is exactly how John feels. When you are brought up to see either good or evil what do you do when your now told that there is a grey area and that you need to protect humans from angels as well as demons.

I really can’t wait to see where this series goes.

Delicious Death (Madame Chalamet Ghost Mysteries #2)Delicious Death by Byrd Nash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Madame Chalamet series. I really enjoyed this book. I love the combination of supernatural and mystery.
Elinor is bored. Things have been quiet for her recently and there’s been no reason to use her skills to communicate with ghosts. She is wanting some excitement in her life and boy does she get that when an invitation to the Winter Revels turns from what should be a enjoyable time into a time of mystery and danger as Elinor has to try and figure out who has made the attempt on the Kings life. When her favourite chef is under suspicion of the crime she needs to use all her detective skills to find the person who really committed the crime.
Add to this a widower who needs help grieving their loved one and a young society woman who needs saving from a brute of a man and Elinor is definately over her feelings of boredom.

I love the mixture in this book and how Elinor uses her skills of talking to ghosts to help people as well as solve cases. There is also a slow burn romance in this story which I am excited to see where it leads. Elinor is a strong determined lady who isn’t prepared to give up anything for a man so it will be interesting to see how this will evolve.
I loved it and can’t wait for the next one.

Revenge Never Rests (Tallie Brown Suspense Book 2) by Laurie Lewis – Review by Kerry Carr

Revenge Never RestsRevenge Never Rests by Laurie L.C. Lewis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the follow up story to Secrets Never Die. I definately recommend reading that book first as this book picks up straight from where that one ends.
This story is such a gripping rollercoaster of a read full of even more secrets and lies than the first book. The author does an amazing job with this story making it a gripping read right from the beginning.

Tallie is back and struggling to come to terms with everything that has happened to her. Not only is she dealing with the grief of losing her mother (or so she thought) she also has to deal with the lies and deception that surrounded her life and took her away from her real family. When Tallie’s real father goes missing she is asked to use the skills she learnt to help find him.

As the story progresses we learn more about Tallie’s past and her relationship with the woman she thought was her mother. Now Tallie is on her own and surrounded by people who she doesn’t know if she can trust or not and I have to admit my opinions on those people changed several times and I was in for a few surprises.

This is a great mystery Suspense story that will keep you hooked from the first page to the last. The twists and turns are so good you don’t see it coming until it happens which is an amazing thing in a book.

Definately read the first book and then prepare to have your mind blown when you dive into this one to continue Tallie’s story.

The Hawke Family Complete CollectionThe Hawke Family Complete Collection by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really loved this collection of stories. Each book follows a different member of the Hawke family. They are full of steamy romance but also an element of danger and the twists and turns make these books so easy to get lost in.
Every member of the Hawke family has a story to tell and each one of them is flawed and has problems and secrets but as they find love we slowly see them grow and overcome their issues. But it’s never an easy journey and there are plenty of bumps along the way to send them off course.
These stories will make you smile and cry but one things for sure you will definately fall in love with each member of the Hawke Family.
It’s a collection I read over 3 days because I literally couldn’t put it down. Such amazing writing and characters.

Love Tools (Bluestone Series Book 1) by Isobel Reed – Review by Kerry Carr

Love Tools (Bluestone Series, #1)Love Tools by Isobel Reed
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this romance story. The author does an amazing job with the characters and I really enjoyed how at the start Lily and Jake seemed to hate each other but the teasing and barbs they threw at each other was all building up to an attraction that neither of them could deny.

Lily changed her whole life,leaving her family behind to take over a tool shop her father left her when he passed. She has nothing to lose, she hates her job and her dating life is non existent as she always attracts the wrong guys.
What she doesn’t expect is to meet a guy and not just any guy. Jake is a guy with so many red flags she should run in the opposite direction screaming.

Jake has never had a serious relationship. He’s known as a bit of a ladies man and he’s happy with that. Until he meets Lily. He’s never felt about a woman the way he does about Lily but how can he prove to her that he is the man for her and not the womaniser she thinks him to be.

This is a slow burn romance where the attraction is there but both Lily and Jake need to work through their past relationships and pains to be able to full let the other person in. Their connection is fun to read as they constantly push and pull each other.

The Husbands by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Kerry Carr

The HusbandsThe Husbands by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really enjoyable mm romance. This is by far one of my favourite authors and I love everything I read by her and this one was just as good. She has the ability to transport the reader into the world she has created and the time just disappears as you read. The books are definately page turners. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book but i was not disappointed. I love the danger of Doran’s job, and the impact it has, I loved the chemistry between Doran and Augustine and their fight against what they are feeling to protect their wives showed so much love for their partners that they deny themselves the love they feel between them.

This is definately a story that will grip you and the outcome even though it may not be seen as right to some people was definately right for this story. It was a beautiful story about fighting for what you want in life and being who you want to be with the people you want to be with.

The Daredevil (WaterFyre Rising Book 2) by Nadia Han – Review by Kerry Carr

The Daredevil (WaterFyre Rising, #2)The Daredevil by Nadia Han
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

book in the WaterFyre Rising series. Even though it is part of a series it can definately be read as a standalone and it is still a great read. The author does an amazing job with the characters. Both of them are Daredevils in their own ways but they both have secrets and demons from their past that still cause them problems today. The author deals with sensitive issues such as eating disorders but it is done in a way that shows the last effect of these problems.

Michelle Yates is a travel blogger she loves new experiences and new places and by travelling the world it keeps her monster at bay. This monster she carries if given the chance will take over her life and she is refusing to allow that to happen so to protect herself she focuses on her work and closes herself off to any other person wanting to get close to her. That is until she meets Royce Viktorsson.

Royce Viktorsson is a successful Billionaire. He wasn’t always this way though and through the trauma of his past it has turned him into a risk taker. Nothing helps him heal the hole inside of him until he meets Michelle. She feels like just the person to help make him whole again, however she seems unavailable emotionally to him which makes him want to know why.

Both of these people have issues that they need to deal with but could they been the remedy to each others problems? As they start to get closer there is an additional danger lurking in the shadows. Someone is out to ruin Royce’s business and with Michelle getting close to him will this also put her at risk as well?

This story is full of danger, secrets, lies and a very passionate love that grows out of a unlikely place. You will be captivated by Michelle and Royce’s story and their journey to heal themselves and each other.

Knight In The Museum (Jorja Knight Private Investigator Mystery Series Book 5) by Alice Bienia – Review by Kerry Carr

Knight In The Museum ( Jorja Knight Mystery -Book 5)Knight In The Museum by Alice Bienia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the fifth book in the Jorja Knight Mystery series. Thankfully these books can be read as standalone books however I will definately be going back and read the books that came before. The author has a way of writing that keeps you captivated from beginning to end. This was one book where I was reading and kept saying one more chapter until I reached the end without even realising it. Each chapter leaves you wanting more.
I love our main character Jorja. She is a very smart and fiesty lady who is like a dog with a bone. She will stop at nothing to solve the mystery that is infront or her.

When an ex law enforcement officer turned PI turns up dead his daughter isn’t so quite to believe the cause of death was accidental as the police claim. Now Jorja is on the case to find out what really happened and why he had to die. With ancient relics, maybe a curse and for some reason the police not doing their job Jorja had to walk a dangerous path to get to the truth.
What are the law enforcement agencies trying to hide? Was it a simple accident or was it something more sinister? And what happens if danger now decides to lurk around her? Can she solve the case before its too late?

A cursed statue, a murder mystery and secrets and lies makes this one interesting page turner

Much Ado About Dying (Guardians of the PHAE Book 2) by Rowan Dillon – Review by Kerry Carr

Much Ado About Dying: An Irish Urban Fantasy Novel (Guardians of the PHAE #2)Much Ado About Dying: An Irish Urban Fantasy Novel by Rowan Dillon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Guardians of the PHAE series. I would really recommend reading these books in order so that you get the full understanding of the story. This is a fast paced fantasy adventure which deals with with heartbreak and despair as well as hope. The author does an amazing job of bringing the world alive a the descriptions of Ireland makes you feel like you know the places even if you have never been.

We are back in Ireland with the Unhidden people. We rejoin the story just after the bombings which injured and killed a lot of people with magical abilities( the Unhidden) with cities destroyed, medical supplies low and a mysterious illness showing up Róisín certainly has her hands full and even her healing ability struggling.
As if that isn’t enough to cope with there is still the threat of the groups opposed to magical beings, a deadly plague that is on the loose and when Róisín needs to fight an ancient god to save her world it is definately a story with a lot of action and turmoil and Róisín’s strength comes through in every decision and fight she has.
All this while still trying to figure out what is happening to her abilities and the abilities of all the other Unhidden people.
This story is definately one which gets a hold on you and refuses to let go. You find yourself holding your breath in some parts waiting to see what happens. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series and what the author has planned next.

Degrees of Innocence: Dark Mafia Romance (Cruel Deceptions Book 1) By Via Mari – Review by Kerry Carr

Degrees of Innocence (Prestian Series, #1)Degrees of Innocence by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this romance. There is just the right mixture of hot steamy passion and danger to make this a great read.
The characters are really well written and I love the connection between them the constant flirting and teasing really adds to the story. I could understand both sides of the arguments when it came to certain areas. Kate is a strong and independent woman so when she meets Chase and he trys to take over and protect her I can understand her resistance but at the same time I also understand Chase’s need to protect her.
The twist in the story is one I did not see coming and I was very surprised at how it worked out.

Kate is tasked with working alongside Chase to build a new medical facility. She has always said she would never mix work with romance but when she falls for Chase she doesn’t even realise who he is. Now it is too late for her to walk away but little does she realise that just being with Chase puts her in danger but not for the reason you would think.
Overall, despite the push and pull there is no denying the love and passion between Chase and Kate and I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for them next.
