My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, amazing…I so enjoyed this book. This YA Fantasy is just a great read espcially if you love stories with vampires, witches, magic and secrets. Having to move to yet another new school, especially her senior year, Alena, who is half witch half vampire, is trying to finish out school and graduate. Her mother is strict, being cautious at every turn, is a Vampire Chancellor . Alena has questions to her mother on who her father is and when or if she can meet him. As the story unfolds, Alena embarks on a journey to reverse an ancient spell as she may hold ultimate key to reverse. I could go on about this book but do not want to give any spoilers out! This story is truly fantastic and if you love fantasy with a twist of vampires I recommend this book HIGHLY!

Born to Fight (Can't Resist You, #1)Born to Fight by Brittany Anne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 This book really took me in from the first page of the story. I was not sure what to expect at first, but so glad I read this book and loved the dystopian feel. Hunter is a soldier with the “Resistance”. Objective is to take down the UNR (they are bad). Rain has been alone for 2 years in her safe haven of a bunker, in hiding. When Hunter is left out pretty much for dead, Rain discovers Hunter and nurses him back to health in her bunker. Heat and chemistry between Rain and Hunter sizzles. There are secrets to be discovered, and the world falling apart will Hunter and Rain be together? Definitely read the book to find out. Highly recommended!!

When Arnaud is tasked to find the 2nd secret key he has to team up with Sasha all while trying to evade the evil Kurt, whom wants Mount Evor to fall and find the keys for himself. Will Sasha and Arnaud find the 2nd key while sparks fly between them? I loved the puzzle behind the story, different areas and landmarks they may have to search in France. Great Read and I am so looking forward to book # 3 with Theo and his story!!

Silent Gavel (Crawford Mystery #1)Silent Gavel by Merissa Racine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow this book had me hooked from beginning to end. This was a great mystery with suspense and I really thought I had it figured out on “who done it”…or so I thought….. Lauren is a court stenographer and when she goes to pick up the judge she was working for one morning, something was not right.
When Lauren went into Judge Murphy’s house to check in to see if she was ready, Lauren finds the judge murdered in her own home. Sam Overstreet is the detective on the case and has his eyes on Lauren as his #1 suspect. Who murdered Judge Murphy? This book is a who done it murder mystery and just so good. This book really drew me in and I cannot wait until I continue with book #2.

Well Done Author Merissa Racine 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

The Book of Carraig (The Cross of Ciaran #2)The Book of Carraig by Andrea Matthews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Enjoyable book! This is book 2 in the series and I would highly recommend reading the first book before diving into book 2. The story picks up about a year later….and the story between Ciaran and Caitlin. There are secrets and Ciaran is trying to remember his past and also has to come to terms of being truthful to Caitlin as Ciaran and Caitlin return to Ireland. Mystery, secrets, romance all wrapped into a good book.

Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling (Stone and Cinder Book 1)Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling by A.L. Morrow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just loved this different aspect of “Cinderella” story that is a MMF Fantasy Romance. This book had me hooked from the first page and to the end!! AHHHHHH!!!! I definitely need more and cannot wait until book 2.

The retelling of this story of a beautiful ball in honor of Prince Callum and the Duke Teague for their wedding anniversary. This is where Prince Callum is also hoping to find a woman to bear children so his family can continue the bloodline. This is where the Prince meets Ashling aka Cinderella. She is there at the castle on a different mission, but the stars align and a kiss shared.

Will Prince Callum and Duke Teague find Ashling after she leaves the castle and then ends up running away from her abusive and evil step mother? There is so much I can share about this book but do not want to give anything away. This book is truly fantastic and surprised me in so many good ways. Loved this book!!

Noémie’s Journey AUDIO BOOK by Victoria Saccenti – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

I loved this story of Noemi and Richard. Richard wants to protect Noemi really pulls at my heart strings. Setting of a small town, the racism that Noemi had to deal with on a daily basis… I couldn’t possibly imagine. There are so many obstacles as Richard is white, while Noemi is not…and the story taking place in the 60’s with some rocky times for social equality. This story is heartbreaking at times and beautiful.

No Strings Attached by Lara Ward Cosio – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

No Strings AttachedNo Strings Attached by Lara Ward Cosio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Just LOVED this book!! The story of Kayla and Tanner. This book had moments of me laughing to smiling from ear to ear to my pulse racing!! Kayla is a single mom with a 4 year old little girl. She is so focused on raising Emerson while having a career of her own. A encounter at the local coffee shop, she meets Tanner. All Tanner can offer Kayla at this point is a little fun with no strings attached. Tanner has his own career while he is helping out his sister with his twin nephews while his brother in law is deployed. Things get a bit complex with Tanner and Kayla as they have this back and forth of no strings attached fun but then feelings come into play. Tie in more complexity when Kayla’s ex and Emerson’s father comes back trying to get a second chance with Kayla and raising Emerson.

I just loved this story. Sweet moments mixed with some hot moments and a sprinkle of complex feelings all wrapped into a great book!! Loved Tanner and Kayla’s story!!

Ye Gods! The Law is an Ass!Ye Gods! The Law is an Ass! by Seelie Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just am loving this series!! I enjoy Author Seelie Kay’s book and this second book to the series did not disappoint!! I recommend reading the first book in this series before reading book two for sure.
Donovan Trait is a lawyer whom also is a vampire….who loves Shirley Magnusen, whom is a judge.
Donovan and Shirley are to be married..of course there are conditions to the marriage when it comes to having children (since Donovan is a vampire already and Shirley is going to turn)….but things get a bit challenging when Donovan and Shirley learn that Shirley is pregnant and this does not sit well with the Vampire Coalition. Donovan and Shirley flee to protect their unborn baby. I just love this book…and you really want to cheer on Donovan and Shirley. Of course need I say I want more of this series!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
