Claimed (The Torzial Affair Series, #3) by Via Mari – Review by Krystal Gaston

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Torzial Affair Book 3: Claimed written by Via Mari. I’m sad to see this series end just like I was with The Prestian Series however I am so eager to see what’s next. Jenny and Brian have had a long, stressful start and hopefully everything is finished and they can just relax and be. Reading as Jenny struggles with everything that happened with Ty and because of Ty is hard. You feel for her and how it’s just one thing after another, but Brian and Matt and everyone else who loves her has her back like always. They go above and beyond to help her and ultimately save her. You also see some hints of what could come you just wonder which way the new story will go…

Rules of Engagement by Mika Jolie – Review by Krystal Gaston

Rules of EngagementRules of Engagement by Mika Jolie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rules of Engagement by Mika Jolie is book three in the Platonically Complicated Series. This is a cute story with just the right mixture of romance, comedy and sex scenes. The story is told from Lucas’s point of view and you get a front row seat for everything that is going on with his nasty ex wife. I love the relationship between Kate and Lucas, the way they are as friends is fun and relaxed, they are comfortable with each other, they trust each other. Then you add in a small complication that is a blessing in disguise, as they figure out how to make things work, along with if they should act on their hidden desires. Can they take that next big leap? Or will everything end when their fake engagement does….

Movie Star by Pamela DuMond – Review by Krystal Gaston

Movie Star (21st Century Courtesan, #2)Movie Star by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Movie Star by Pamela DuMond is book two in the 21st Century Courtesan Series. After reading book one, Player, and falling in love with Evie, I had to see what book 2 would be like. Let me tell you Movie Star does not disappoint. Evie is with her next client Jake and it’s a whole new adventure. This story has a mixture going on with it but it keeps you hooked and wanting more the entire time. Easton Wolfe makes another appearance and throws Evie off. Her admirer comes and goes as he pleases and creeps her out. But what will happen with Evie and Jake is the big question, can she heal him or will every thing else get in the way and impact her ability.

Finding Juniper (The Smoke Series, #3) by Sadia Ash – Review by Krystal Gaston

Finding JuniperFinding Juniper by Sadia Ash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finding Juniper book three in The Smoke Series written by Sadia Ash. Oh where to begin with this book Kyle and Juniper have a long drawn out and extremely complicated relationship. You never really know which way it will go with them they have a love hate relationship with a lot of push and pull. You feel for each of them throughout the story, and you just want to see where the story goes you get pulled in so quickly. Juniper is a strong character and a great one, Kyle is an alpha male but even he was a weakness, Juniper.

Not So Broken (Love Grows Series, #1) by Renee Regent – Review by Krystal Gaston

Not So Broken (Love Grows Series, # 1)Not So Broken by Renee Regent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not So Broken by Renee Regent is book one in the Love Grows Series. This is a story about getting a second chance at life and love, it revolves around Gibson and Sacha. This story has a bit of it all sadness, loss, mourning mixed with acceptance, love and moving on when you get a second chance. I liked Gibson he was down to earth and realistic in his behavior and reactions. Sacha I both liked and didn’t, I didn’t agree with all of her decisions but I understood her reasoning. Not So Broken is told in alternating point of view through Gibson and Sacha so you get both sides of the story as it’s happening.

Penny For Your Thoughts (Sand Dollar Series, #1) by JD Boudreaux – Review by Krystal Gaston

Penny For Your Thoughts (Sand Dollar Series Book 1)Penny For Your Thoughts by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Penny For Your Thoughts by JD Boudreaux is book one in the Sand Dollar Series. This is a slower paced story focused on Penny and Alex. The storyline is smooth and flows from one point to the next flawlessly. I’m not quite sure about my feeling with this story, there were some real life struggles in it that I’m sure many can relate to. Penny and Alex each have their own issues and goals with life but can their love survive it?

Eight Steps to Alpha (Nerdy by Nature, #1)Eight Steps to Alpha by Taylor Sullivan

Eight Steps-A Friends to Lovers Romance by Taylor Sullivan. This is a cute friends to lovers Romance with Elliot and Fe who begin as best friends and room mates. Fe being the shy, nervous girl who loves to read decides to help nerdy, “nice guy”Elliot become the ultimate alpha male character to get the girl he thinks he wants. Can they pull this off? Better question can they pull It off without realizing they might feel things more than friendship for each other. The story was cute, with funny moments, it flowed well and kept you entertained. I liked the characters each had their own issues which made them seem more real.

Shattered Love (Forever Us Series) by Nivia Borell – Review by Krystal Gaston

Shattered LoveShattered Love by Nivia Borell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered Love by Nivia Borell is book one of the Forever Us Series. I have a love hate relationship with this book. I’ve read some dark stories but this one messed with me a little. While I loved Bria at times I also hated her weakness. And Damien, he takes things to a whole new level with his intensity. But overall I did love the story, it made me feel for them both and what they lost at such a young age and turned into such lost adults. I loved the ending even though me and endings like that also have a love hate relationship.

Bound (the Torzial Affair Book #2) by Via Mari – Review by Krystal Gaston

Bound (The Torzial Affair Book 2)Bound by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Torzial Affair Book 2: Bound written by Via Mari. I was pretty excited for this book after reading book one, Shattered. I love reading Jenny’s story even though it’s sad, disturbing at times and super stressful with everything she’s been through and going through it makes you wonder if her life is ever going to get better and stay positive for more than a few weeks at a time. Ty has done a lot of damage to her life as a whole and even from the grave his actions are a direct threat to her and Torzial. You learn a lot about Matt in this story where he’s normally more of a secondary character he becomes more present and out of the shadows. I’m even more excited to see how book three (Claimed) goes and if Jenny ever gets her chance at happily ever after.
