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 – Krystal Gregory

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.

Age of Druids: Druids Brooch Series#9 by Christy Nicholas
4 out of 5 stars
This series has been amazing! I have been following along with this series since the beginning and I cannot believe we are here at the end. All good things must come to an end I suppose, but WHY? Age of Druids: Druids Brooch Series#9 by Christy Nicholas is a book that is full of romance, action, and danger. Clíodhna is a strong woman with a will of Iron. She has babies to protect and she is determined to do so. She is a fiery woman and when she has her back against the wall, she is determined to do what is necessary to save herself and her family, with or without the help of the beautiful stranger she met in the woods.
This book is amazing. I highly recommend this series and in book order.

THAT INCREDIBLE KISS (Kissed By Fate Book 3) by Tamara Ferguson – Review by Krystal Gregory

THAT INCREDIBLE KISS (Kissed By Fate Book 3) by Tamara Ferguson
4 out of 5 stars
The fabulous Tamara Ferguson never fails to deliver an amazing story with complex characters, a well-developed storyline, and an overall tale that has your heart crying for more. The third book in the Kissed by Fate series, That Incredible Kiss, is another notch in her belt.
Ashley and Brian and two amazing leads who snag your heartstrings the minute you meet them. Ashley took a bit to grown into, but knowing how Ferguson writes, I knew that this character’s development was worth waiting for. Brian is a war veteran who is both damaged and traumatized. These two characters meeting again, after years apart is a balm for the soul and the heart. Add in a twisted mystery, a spooky cave or two, and a house with more secrets than the government, and you have a top-notch story.
I loved every minute of this book. This book is great for lovers of romance, suspense, thriller, and mystery genres. 4 out of 5 stars.

Alamir (Blood of Kaos Series Book 1) AUDIBLE BOOK TOUR by Nesa Miller – Review by Krystal Gregory

Alamir, Blood of Kaos Series, Book 1Alamir, Blood of Kaos Series, Book 1 by Nesa Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars
Alamir, Blood of Kaos is the first Book is this new series and it is a great start, Etain is a very powerful woman who came into her power in a bloody and messy way. She is constantly trying to decide who she is able to trust and who is out to get her. While Miller does an impressive job of weaving a tale full of descriptive action scenes and well-developed characters, the strongest point of this story is the supporting characters such as Spirit and Inferno. These characters give color and depth of the story that would otherwise be two dimensional.

Miller is an amazing author who impresses me with her ability to take characters from pages into reality. I am excited for book two.

REBECCA STEELE FINDING A DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES BOOK 2) by JOANNE PATTERSON – Review by Krystal Gregory

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream (Rebecca Steele Series #2)Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

REBECCA STEELE FINDING THE DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES) Book 2 by Joanne Patterson
4 out of 5 stars
Western Romances are very much a hit or miss for me. I feel that the genre has died and that they can often be replaced with the much more exciting world of YA, or Sci-Fi, however, I can eat my words when it comes to the writings of Patterson. Patterson brings the world of Western Romance back to life. The characters of both Becky and Emily warm the heart in such a way that even the darkest soul can feel the hearth burning. Becky is back in the world and adventuring on her own, with Emily there to support everything that she does and laughs along the way.
This is a quick read, which I really appreciate, as I rarely have the luxury to sit and indulge in a long read anymore and the chapters were quick and efficient with details and information. Lovers of young adult, women empowerment and coming of age will love this book. 4 out of 5 stars.

Being Lost (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Krystal Gregory

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.

Saint Code: The Lost (Saint Code Book 1) by Megan Mackie – Review by Krystal Gregory

The Lost (Saint Code Book 1)The Lost by Megan Mackie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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 (Lovelock Book 2) by Tricia Copeland
4 out of 5 stars
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

Rise (The Larussio Legacy, #2)Rise by Via Mari
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.
