Being Lost: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1
By Manda Mellett
4 out of 5 Stars
MC books are a hit or miss with me. This isn’t a genre that I can identify with or really understand, however, Being Lost, by Manda Mellett is a fantastic book to get started for someone who is looking to cut their teeth on an MC series. These are not your typical heroes and heroines. The main male character is much older than the other books that I read, but I like a silver fox with a plan, and Lost is just that fox. Lost has found himself in charge of the wellbeing of a mature woman and her adult son. They are in danger and the more Lost and Patsy get to know each other, the less he can stomach the thought of something happening to her.
Mellett is a fantastic storyteller. She brings depth and life to both character and story. You will not regret picking up this book and starting this series. 4 out of 5 stars. A must-read.

The Lost (Saint Code) by Megan Mackie
4 out of 5 stars
I love the name St. Augustina. How freaking cool is that. The Lost is the first book in the Saint Code and St Augustina is one amazing character. She is a super cyber-spy. She is in the thick of the cybernetic revolution. Along with her friend St Benedict, she is in the fight of her life. Thrown in some neo-ninjas, betrayals from friends both new and old and you have a story that will keep you sucked in until the very end.
Mackie is an amazing author who never ceases to amaze me. Her style of writing is both effortless and detailed. She can pack an entire action scene within a few pages and you do not feel overwhelmed. This book is for the lover of all genres. Highly recommended for all.

Torch is the second book in the Lovelocked Series. This is a great series. I have a hard time with some young adult series, but this series is amazing. This book gives us the story of Jema and Troy. Jema’s government is after her, for something that is way over her head. There is a disease spreading through the community there is only one cure, and it runs in Jema’s veins. Branded a loyalist to her uncle and a traitor to her country, Jema, and her friends are on the run.
Fighting for their lives in a desolate desert, Jema and her friends find a group of sympathizers who will help her. And help her get the cure to the people.
This YA dystopian science fiction book has a little bit for all genre lovers. Copeland is an amazing storyteller and she never ceases to amaze me with each new book. Highly recommended for all genre lovers.

Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari – Review by Krystal Gregory

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari
5 out of 5 Stars

Rise is the 2nd installment in the Larussio Legacy series. I am a huge advocate of reading a series in book order, so please go back and read book 1 before picking this one. Via Mari continues with the Larussio family and what a powerful family they are. The most powerful crime family in all of Italy, Don, Giovanni Larussio is obsessed with Serena Moretti, a strong, intelligent woman who was raised to believe that the Larussio family is the source of all that is evil. As time progresses on, Gio and Serena clash and circle around each other in ways that are both heated and passionate. When Serena and her family become targets of enemies of the Larussio family, Gio will stop at nothing to keep Serena safe, and I mean nothing.
Via Marii is an incredibly talented writer. Her stories are so well written that you start the first past and the next thing you know, you are 100 pages in. You will not regret starting this series.

Out of The Shadows by Theresa Sederholt
5 out of 5 Stars
Dane Johnson, a man so broken by the secret he is holding that it is tearing him apart. Warning that this book may trigger some people who are sensitive to acts of violence, both mentally and on some base, physically, so If you are more tenderhearted than others, this book may be a bit much for you, so tread carefully.
Having said all of that, this book is beautifully written from Dane’s point of view. While not wanting to give you too much of what happens, this story is so heartbreaking, so emotionally charged, and so devastating that you are both crying and cheering for Dane at the same time. I feel that I am a better person for reading this book. I highly recommend this book for lovers of all book genres.

Naomi (Maggie Trilogy Book 2) by Mya O’Malley
4 out of 5 Stars
Naomi is the second book in the Maggie Trilogy. Do future self a favor and read Maggie, Book One. While not necessary to read this book, you learn a lot about Naomi in Maggie and I feel that it is a huge benefit when carrying on a character.
Naomi went through a lot with Maggie in the first book and now, she gets a shot to tell her story. This is a paranormal romance novel. If you love ghost stories, then this one is right up your alley. Naomi is high on cloud nine. Planning a wedding and looking forward to starting her life with her own personal hottie, Bryce, but when her past comes rushing back in a vicious and violent way. Naomi will do everything in her power, both physically and paranormally to keep Bryce and his daughter safe from the violence.
I love this book. It was a fabulous way to continue Naomi’s story and a fantastic edition to this series. I cannot wait for more.

The Ash Park Series Boxed Set (Books 1-3) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Krystal Gregory

The Ash Park Series Box Set (Books 1-3): Famished, Conviction, and RepressedThe Ash Park Series Box Set (Books 1-3): Famished, Conviction, and Repressed by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved these book! Each was well thought out and detailed in both plot and development.

Famished: An Ash Park Novel, Volume 1 by Meghan O’Flynn
4 out of 5 Stars
This book is one heck of a way to start a series. This is a slow burn type of read. It takes a bit for the main plot to get up and running but when it does. BAM, it takes off of the ground and hits it running. Set in the pits of a run-down suburb of Detroit. There is a serial killer, lurking, picking off women and hacking them into bits.
Hannah is trying to convince herself that she has nothing to do with it, but then, her boyfriend is murdered in the exact same gruesome way and the police name her the number one suspect. Hannah didn’t kill her boyfriend, or any of the other people. The problem is, she knows who did, and unless she does something about it, they will keep killing.
Ms O’Flynn is a very talented writer. This book was full of passion, emotions and strong details. Most defiantly an 18+ for the strong language and violence but a fantastic book none the less. If you love James Patterson, or books similar, you will love this book.

Conviction: An Ash Park Novel, Volume 2 by Meghan O’Flynn
4 out of 5 Stars
This book is intense. If there was ever a white-knuckled thriller, this book would be in the running. I could not turn the pages fast enough on this book. Shannon Taylor is the main character for this book and lord have mercy is she a powerhouse. Being a District Attorney for her city means that she has to be tough as nails and when she has to deal with the lowest of the low, she is as tough as they come, except when it evidence shows that she may have put a young mother in jail for a murder that she didn’t commit. That will crack the edges of even the hardest hearts.
Shannon knows the girls is hiding something but she won’t say what, or who it is and Shannon herself becomes the victim/target of warnings and targeted messages. Shannon has to race against the clock to protect herself and to right the wrong she has done by putting the right person behind bars, she just isn’t sure if she will be put into the ground first.
Ms O’Flynn is a very talented writer. This book was full of passion, emotions and strong details. Most defiantly an 18+ for the strong language and violence but a fantastic book none the less. If you love James Patterson, or books similar, you will love this book.
Repressed: An Ash Park Novel, Volume 3 by Meghan O’Flynn
4 out of 5 Stars
This third book in this series is beyond amazing. Curtis Morrison has had a rough life, but right now, life is good for him. Newly married, a Detective at Ash Park Police and a baby girl. But all of that comes crashing to a halt when his wife and daughter go missing and his life goes into a tail spin.
Someone from his past is coming back to get him, and they are making his live h*ll. He has spent the better half of his adult life trying to get away from the life he left, but someone does not want him to forget. Someone wants him to remember and they want to make him remember in a way that will hurt him the worst, and time is running out.
Ms O’Flynn is a very talented writer. This book was full of passion, secondary emotions and strong details. I loved every second of this book. Most definitely an 18+ for the strong language and violence but a fantastic book nonetheless. If you love James Patterson, or books similar, you will love this book.

Overall this series is incredible! I love a good thriller and this one fills that for me.

Rule (The Larussio Legacy Book 1) by Via Mari
4 out of 5 Stars
What a fantastic way to start a new series. Via Mari never ceases to amaze me with both her quality of writing and her development of characters. This book brings in characters from her previous books. While not a necessity, I would recommend reading Via Mari’s previous works to know more about the family and the dynamic behind it.
Rule is a romantic/suspense novel that follows the characters of Katarina and Chase. The love these two have for each other is tangible. You can feel how hot they are for each other from the pages of the book, (or kindle).
Katarina is caught with wanting to make her Italian father proud, while at the same time, honoring the wishes of her husband. She has to try to get her family to trust and agree that she knows what is best with the family business.
Chase will do everything in his power to ensure Katarina’s protection, even risking the wrath of her mob family.
The drama that ensures with both Katarina and Chase and then the families is fast paced, quick witted and passionate. You will need to read to find out what happens and you will not be disappointed.

Not a Good Death: Agents of Dart Series Book Two
by Naomi Bellina
4 out of 5 stars
This romantic suspense story will have you filling the pages to the very end. Not a Good Death is the second book in the Agents of Dart series and is a fantastic follow up piece for book one. While each book can be read as a standalone, I am a huge advocate for reading a series in book order.
This story follows Lilly and Dillon who are both agents of DART, a division of the FBI. Lilly is a seasoned agent with DART and Dillion has just finished his training and has been assigned to work with Lilly who is now both is partner on and off the job.
On their very first assignment together, everything goes haywire and now they are neck deep in a murder investigation.
I enjoyed these characters very much and while at times I found their exchanges more bickering than banter, the plot moved along smoothly and the story was very gripping. A solid 4 out of 5 stars for any lovers of the thriller, romance, or mystery genres.

Deliciously Sinful Liaisons by L.M Mountford

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!
