Deliciously Sinful Liaisons by L.M Mountford
4 out of 5 stars
This book collection is one hot and sizzling collection. Each book is just as hot as the last and each one will leave you wanting more from L.M Mountford.
Each of the seven stories in this collection are different that the last and the variety of the stories is a breath of fresh air as you are immersed into a new story each time with new and complex characters that bring life to each of the short stories. The story line, plot, and characters are very well developed. The paragraphs and sentence structures are full and flows from one to the next. The pace was neither hurried nor too slow. The author kept pace with each one while seamlessly transition from one story to the next. Highly recommended for lovers of romance and binge readers!

This is the second book in the Billionaire Bodyguards series. Mrs. Mari has brought to us the most unlikely characters who have turned out to be some of my most favorite of all time.

Matt Benagent is both friend and bodyguard to two of the richest billionaires in Chicago. He goes undercover when both of them are taken in by the Chicago Mafia…but they escape….but the Russian Mafia is after them too??
Matt and Marenah find themselves in a twisted, knotted up fight for their lives as the two mafias battle to find them. What is Marenah’s connect to each of the mafia’s and what will them finding her mean for them both?
A great book with fierce characters. A well-developed plot and each story line flows from one to the next. I highly recommend this for lovers of adventure, romance and intrigue.

Proper Impulse (Jaded Lily Book 4) by Zeia Jameson.
4 out of 5 stars
Milo Cipriani. What a strong name. If I was a dude, I would want a name like Milo Cipriani. Proper Impulse is the 4th installment in the Jaded Lily series. This series is amazing. We first meet Milo in the previous books and I will be honest, he wasn’t left on pretty terms.
Milo is a police officer who takes his job very, very seriously. He is stern, uptight and a stick shoved up his rear. He meets his match when he comes face to face with his exact opposite, Juniper. Juniper is free-spirited, fun loving and will wear her heart on her sleeve. She is willing to bend the rules just a little if it means doing the right thing in the long run.
Opposites really do attract in this blizzard meeting of Milo and Juniper. This book is dual point of view, which is very refreshing and gives unique insights to each character as the development grows with and between each one.
This book can be read as a standalone. Myself, I highly recommend reading all books in series order as the author intended.
Beautiful story, fantastic characters and another ballpark smash for Ms. Jameson.

There are few characters who snag my heart quite like Luca. What a heart throb he his. While this book can be read as a standalone, I am a big supporter of reading a series in book order, in the way the author wrote the stories for you to get the most out of the books/series.

Luca is a character we see from the first book, Proper Irish, and I was so excited to see his story. Luca is a typical artist, a tattoo artist. He is all about his art, the purity of his art and the way Jameson describes the art to the reader brings them to life. I can practically see the art and imagine the fine lines and details. He is also a broken man. He is recovering from having his heart smashed and he hides behind a sordid expression.

Kerry is a beautiful soul. From the outside, she seems to have lived a charmed life and anyone of us would be jealous of, but she has a huge chip on her shoulder from her gilded life.

These two clash in an explosion of passion, attitude, and emotions. This book is a perfect extension to Proper Irish and is a beautiful insight into the lives of Luca and Kerry. I loved getting to know them and watching their relationship built and crest.

Jameson is a fantastic author. She builds and weaves a story and bridges both character and reader. She creates a masterpiece that draws you in a keeps you. You don’t even realize you are holding your breath. Highly Recommended!

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) By Via Mari
4 out of 5 stars

What a way to start a series. Via Mari has always provided engaging, well-developed books and characters and this book is no different.

Jay and Sasha make for one dynamic paring. Sasha is a Russian Ballerina who seems to find herself in the middle of a mafia war where she is pawn. Jay finds himself drawn to Sasha and he cannot seem to put his finger on it, but regardless, he feels that needs to protect her. After he finds out who she really is and why everyone is after her, he doubles his efforts to keep her safe.

This book is both fast-paced and slow burning. I loved every sentence and I cannot wait until book 2 emerges. Highly recommended.

4 out of 5 Stars
Dax Knight, what a cool name! Vermilion Lies is the 3rd book in the Senary series that takes us through the story of Dax and Cindel. This story is dark, passionate and in some cases brutal. This dystopian, fantasy world draws you in and you are reluctant to let go.
Dax is a Senary who vampire hunting takes him to Cindel, the mate of his mortal enemy. The problem is, she is a vampire. The very thing Dax is designed to destroy.
The chemistry between Dax and Cindel is so intense you can feel it from the pages of the book. It is raw, hot and emotional.
Ms Rose is a masterful story teller. She never ceases to amaze me with each new book that she releases. Highly recommended for lovers of romance and fantasy.

BECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New Zealand by Aviva Vaughn
5 out of 5 stars

I have been waiting for this book. I have a soft and squishy spot in the center of my heart for Soren and he really needed to have a store dedicated to him alone. Soren, bless his bleeding heart, has had it rough when it comes to love. He finds himself cut off from his family’s money and in New Zealand, his resort business has found him with some sort of peace…but only some.

Two women from his past show up, and start to reek havoc on his peace, but it may just be the sort of thing Soren needs to get out ot the rut the feels that his life has become. The only thing, he just wishes he could choose between what is right, and what is easy.

Ms. Vaughn is an amazing writer. She has built Soren up through five books so this one was like coming home to an old friend. The writing is both lyrical and poetic. The plot well thought out and does not feel rushed from one scene to another and the sentence structures are full and transition from one thought to another. Overall, this book is a fantastic addition to this series. 5 stars and highly recommended.

HEELS OF FORTUNE: PJ Santini Series: Book Two by Lynne Russell – Review by Krystal Gregory

Heels Of Fortune (PJ Santini Series Book 2)Heels Of Fortune by Lynne Russell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Heels of Fortune (PJ Santini Series, Book 2) by Lynne Russell
5 out of 5 Stars
First of all, the first PJ Santini book was amazing. It was a one sit read for me. When this book became available, I jumped to one-click it.
PJ Santini is a sassy, high-heel loving, novice gumshoe detective, PI and TV reporter. In this latest novel, PJ is investigating the case of her late husband, who she was married to for a very, very, very (you picking up what I’m laying down?) short period of time. Every new piece of information puts PJ in danger but with the help of super hot Tango Daly, her best friend Vicki and her cousin Sandro, she is determined to make it out on the other end of this alive.
I loved this book as much as the first and I am so looking forward to what other mischief PJ gets herself into. Highly recommended!
