Devil's BreathDevil’s Breath by Lang Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Suspenseful, dark romance that had me wanting more. Plenty of betrayal, lust and a bit of cat and mouse banter between Sera and Cassius. Sera is a strong female who took me by total surprise… I love that she is a smart chemist and also a deadly assassin. She is all about pleasing her father and the drug empire they are building but something unexpected happens when she meets Cassius, a handsome, smart businessman funding Sera’s product. Sera’s next target is Cassius, but as Cassius continues to get to know Sera and break down her walls will it be to late as Sera decides between love or family?

Fantastic book and wonderful characters. What a story!

I love snuggling up to a cozy mystery and I enjoyed this story! Set in the 1860’s…. coming off of a long journey on a boat are women “brides” from Australia looking to make their way in British Columbia. All of the women turn to Alyssa when things get complex as a hotel owner ends up dead…something wrong with the gold that is being stored….and to top everything off an epidemic and a killer is on the loose! Twists and turns along the way, a little love interest…. I also love how all the women look up to Alyssa and are hopeful she can find the killer before it is to late.

What an enjoyable read!! Highly recommended!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this story of Jonas and Mackenzie!! This is book 4 in the series, and I do recommend reading this series in order as the story includes previous characters from the other books. I can say I LOVE all of these books in this series, but this story is my favorite.

Jonas is a player, ladies man, smart and arrogant. He is a Titan. When his hotel is in need of a new chef for opening up a restaurant within the hotel, there is many players in a competition to get a life changing contract. Mackenzie is vying for a chance to win the contract, but not realize that the owner is Jonas. Playing a little cat and mouse game is what Mackenzie thinks she wants to play with Jonas…but who would be truly the winner when Jonas already knows the game. The past of comes back around for Mackenzie….hurt, betrayal and secrets all because of one man. Can Mackenzie let go of the past and move forward with Jonas?

This story flowed so easily and hard to put down….hot sizzling moments, secrets, past hurts and some very personal issues that hit home. This story of Jonas and Mackenzie was fantastic!

The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

The Lie That BindsThe Lie That Binds by Amy Argent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I love how the author has a small saying before each chapter …..about love, lies and truths. This story had me hooked from the first page and it was very hard to put down. I had to know what was coming next….lies upon lies, half truths and trying to fit in. Nathan is a high school boy who has a “secret” that no one knows except for his family. When Holly stumbles and finds out this secret that Nathan has, its takes you on a journey where lies become more and easier to say…but what happens when you fall for the person you lie to but yet the secret.

I can honestly say I get Nathan’s character in many ways….trying to protect himself from being hurt but yet AHHHH….. the downward spiral can lead you to misery and Holly I loved in this book. She was just so caring and understanding and I love the character growth in the book from beginning to end.

Highly recommended book and I loved every page!

Sol and Ember slowly discover the healing process Sol’s issues after the accident that left him unable to no longer work and that Ember wants to be there for him. Will Sol and Ember discover love is worth fighting and supporting each other for, even if there is some age gap? Definitely read and find out. I truly recommend this book, it is so good!!

Queen of Hearts (Heels, Rhymes & Nursery Crimes, #21)Queen of Hearts by Natalina Reis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My first sight of the book cover alone I knew I had to read this book…the cover is totally stunning!

Intriguing story and kind of a guilty pleasure in a dark way…it is all about revenge…. They call her
The Queen of Hearts….a different take on the story. Mimi, The Queen of Hearts, is smart and deceiving…but rightfully so. Men know no boundaries when they believe they win against The Queen of Hearts..but later they find out who truly wins at this “game”.

This book is a quick read, but wow….the story of deceit, lies, revenge against truly cruel men …. a twist and take on The Queen of Hearts story…but oh so worth it!!

The Mastermind (WaterFyre Rising Book 1) by Nadia Han – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

The Mastermind (WaterFyre Rising, #1)The Mastermind by Nadia Han
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Wow, I totally devoured this book and could not put it down. This was one fantastic romance/suspense story that just when I thought I had it figured out……the twists and turns along with sizzling moments kept coming.

Remington is truly a “mastermind”. He is totally brilliant and really puts up a facade believe he has a dark heart. His upbringing was heartbreaking….but growing up with his best friend Grayson and his sister Audri is what he needed. Years past and Remington takes over a company that Audri works for. I love the connection between them….his need to protect Audri and I love how strong Audri is sticking up for herself in situations that happened while working before Remi and his company took over. Both characters have this sense of a dark past….Remington keeps his distance in any relationship and is all about total business. Audri has this sense of guilt growing up over an unfortunate accident. Slowly Remington and Audri break down each other’s walls……but…..there is so much greed, suspense, lies and page turning twists that put both Remington and Audri in harms way.

Will Remi and Audri be able to get through each of their pasts and stay safe at the same time? Definitely read and find out you will NOT be disappointed.

This story is truly phenomenal!!
