Kingdom of War: Kingdom Journals, Book 4 by Tricia Copeland
4 out of 5 stars
Tricia Copeland is one of my favorite authors. I have read many books of hers and thus I was delighted to pick up this little gem. This is the fourth installment in the Kingdom Journals series and a fabulous addition to the set. We meet up with Hunter who is the leader of a long-awaited trinity. Those who are going to restore the order. As his story progresses, I am reminded of Hercules and the requirement of the 12 labors, I find that these are similar to Hunter and the trials that he must complete. Hunter is a complex and often frustrating character as he is constantly at battle with himself and his growing power. He is struggling to control what he thinks is not his and not turn into the father whom he hates. The other two of the trinity are fantastic characters to Hunter and compliment him very well. The conversation, banter, and story progression make this a completely easy read or listen to. Lovers of Paranormal/Romance/Young Adult/Fantasy will love this book. 4 out of 5 stars.

Avenging Devil Part 1: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego, by Manda Mellett
5 out of 5 stars.
Girl, you will sweat. This book is not for the lighthearted as there are 18+ scenes that will make your heart go thud and I am not talking just about the romance. Our strong female lead Saffie, has a past that could break even the strongest of men. However, as this is the third book in the Satan’s Devils series, these are no ordinary men. Niran is determined to repair Saffie and help her feel safe. But what is going to happen when she finds out that he represents the very thing that she is running from? Manda Mellett has quickly become one of my favorite authors. The MC series of books was never truly one of my favorites, however, Mellett’s style of writing, complex characters, and amazing storylines have made me a fan of hers. I highly recommend this book for lovers of Romance, Romantic Suspense, and Contemporary Romance. A Solid 5 out of 5 stars

Tally and the Angel : Book One India by Eleanor Dixon – Review by Krystal Gregory

Tally and the Angel : Book One India by Eleanor Dixon
4 out of 5 stars
Book One in this series was fabulous. This was adorable. Little Tally finds herself befriending an Angel in the most unusual way. This should be amazing, right? But will this angel keep Tally from finding trouble, repeatedly? The short answer is No. Tally and her Angel will find themselves in a race to save themselves and hundreds of kidnapped children from a fate worse than chores.

This is a super sweet book. Targeted for kids ages 8-12, this is a fantastic fantasy book for the early reader. Dixon has masterfully created a world that the young mind can take and build into their own. A very fun 4 of 5 stars.

Fake Fiancé: A Second Chance Office Romance Audio Book by Amy McKinley
5 out of 5 Stars
I loved this story. While short and sweet, it was absolutely well pieced together and the story moved smoothly. It did not feel rushed and each chapter rolled into the other without feeling lost in the story as if having missing important information.
The chemistry between Stone and Adeline is quick and fantastic. It burns hot and quick and I love the banter and quick wit that Adeline has.
This book is for lovers of YA, and Romance. This is a solid 5 out of 5 stars.

Savage: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 10) by Meghan O’Flynn
4 out of 5 Stars
Petrosky, this man is quickly becoming my favorite fictional character. Edward Petrosky is back and so are the super evil people in his life. A killer is back, back from the histories of Petrosky’s own past and he isn’t prepared for what that might mean. Setting aside the fact that he can barely get through the day without taking a shot of whiskey in the morning, a waitress from his favorite diner has gone missing, and she is due with her baby any day now. When the baby shows up, abandoned in the basement of a rundown house, Petrosky is worried she may be already dead. Is it the killer?
O’Flynn is a fabulous story teller. I have LOVED this series from Volume 1 – 10. This is a fabulous series and is best read in story book order. 4 out of 5 stars.

Witness: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 9) by Meghan O’Flynn
5 out of 5 Stars
The pulp fiction, crime thriller books that O’Flynn keeps writing, is nothing short of impressive. This is book 9 in the Ash Park series and hot dang what a series. This series is most defiantly a series order read. Meaning you need to start a book 1 and work your way to this book to get the best out of this book. We are back with Detective Edward Petrosky. This man is his own type of messed up. He has seen some terrors and has lived to tell the tale. It’s like the bad luck just wants to hang around and follow him. So when he gets the simple B&E, he thinks this one will be easier, however, it is far from it. Mix in his adopted family, the crazy neighbors, and a faked death….does this mean…murder?
This book will keep you on your toes and you will keep flipping the pages for more. 5 out of 5 stars. Recommended for lovers of crime drama, thrillers, mystery, and suspense.

Vengeance (The Sundown Series Book 5) by Courtney Konstantin – Review by Krystal Gregory

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Vengeance: Sundown Series, Book 5, by Courtney Konstantin
4 out of 5 stars
Konstantin is one fantastic author. I love the Sundown Series. Konstantin has continued to bring us amazing stories, and this book is no different. This post-apocalyptic story is a great addition to this series but can be read alone. However, as a lover of books, I recommend reading any series in book order. Max is a strong woman who suffers a seriously tragic accident that changes her world. It is hard to describe what goes on in the book without giving too much away but know that this story is both suspenseful and highly emotional. I rarely cry in a book, but this one had me holding back some sobs.
I recommend this book for YA, dystopian fantasy, mystery, and thriller. I highly recommended. 4 out of 5 stars.

Black Dog Rising By Kat Caulberg – Review by Krystal Gregory

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Black Dog Rising by Kat Caulberg 4 out of 5 Stars
Emma Aubrey is a force to be reckoned with. This sweet romance has a twist of the paranormal but once you read about Emma, you fall head over heels for her. Toby himself is mysterious, and I love a handsome mysterious innkeeper. Who wouldn’t want to fall in love with someone like that? Caulberg did a fantastic job of engaging the reader and keeping the suspense and mystery going until the very end. I also LOVED reading about the English stores of paranormal creatures. I recommended this book for lovers of mystery, romance, paranormal, and sci-fi. 4 out of 5 stars.

Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie: A Gripping Thriller (Jake Wolfe Book 1) by Mark Nolan
4 out of 5 Stars
This book is the first in the Jake Wolfe series and let me tell you that it is very fast-paced. I love crime, drama, mystery, and murder genres. But the book had my head reeling. This wasn’t at all bad at times. I loved the fast action most of the time. Similar to when you are watching a good movie and the fight scene is just THAT good. But I did find myself having to go back and reread a few portions to figure out something because there was much to the plot that I could not remember it all. However, having said all that, If I was ever in trouble, I would want Jake Wolfe to come to bail me out, because, dang. That man can really help a girl out. Jake is a war vet who is determined to protect those around him from the trouble that seems to find him.
This is a good book for lovers of mysteries, suspense, action, and adventure. The character dialogue is hilarious and the action is fast.

Grumbler’s Ride: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #2 by Manda Mellett
4 out of 5 stars
Book 2 in the Satan’s Devil Series is just as amazing as the first. Grumbler is a tough dude that is all mush at heart. He is the definition of a tough teddy bear. Mary and her daughter are exactly what Grumbler needs in his life. Softness and light with a little bit of laughter. But as expected there are some growing pains when a single mom and teenage daughter start to hang around an MC Club, and quite hilariously so I might add.
This book is equal parts sweet and loving. Grumbler was written just for Mary and Alicia needed a person like Grumber to come in a be that glue that keeps her from feeling that the world is falling apart around her. Lovers of the MC world will love this series. This builds on the book before and sets up for books to come and LOVE that about a series. I love that you can get the history of characters before you are able to visit them in their stories.
