Taming Beckett (The Playmakers Series Hockey Romances Book 1) by G.K. Brady – Review by Lorrene Huisman

Taming Beckett (The Playmakers, #1)Taming Beckett by G.K. Brady
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great book in a new series, by a most amazing author! I could not put this one down, as I was held tightly with the characters, and what they faced, who they were and who they became, it was a good book!

Paige and Beckett-needed each other, in more than one way! They had to rely on one another at first glance, to help achieve goals. Character building was spot on. Chemistry was hot, hot, and did I mention hot? I loved how differences aside, a great team was made, but even off the ice, hearts can melt with the right amount of bliss. Both of them had troubles, be it past trust or habits in general, loved how they pushed thru those fear and issues to really see what they had going on between them. I love sports reads, and this one really amazed me. Good build not too fast and not too slow! Perfect! Loved it!

Such a good read, and highly must say, if you have not picked this wonderful book as of yet, up, you seriously must! The author also had amazing writing skill! Highly recommend this must read book/author!

Reckless Heart (Second Chance Romance Series Book 2) by Jane Suen – Review by Lorrene Huisman

Reckless Heart (Second Chance Romance #2)Reckless Heart by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This author is truly gifted, in all that they do and create. I loved this first book in this series, and this one was no different. I loved the connection ties to the previous installment. This truly was an impacting, good read.

The book was deep with feeling. Powerful with emotions and tangles of the heart. Mary and Brad were two souls with connections from the previous books, and I was rooting for them. Mary was carefree, but full of life and heart. Brad, had a troubled past, but wanted something he felt he could not reach. Pain of the past intercepts and causes walls, but to embrace a future, they must work through those feelings of the past and think about what the now and future could be, if they trust each other as well as themselves, if they let it. Beautiful writing. Great character depth as well as development. Of course the author has a way with the words they write and create. Emotional and powerful. A great read. I loved it all, truly!

This book was such a joy to read, and as well to get lost in. I really love the writing that this author does in all of their books. Highly recommend this must read book. series, and author! All are a joy to read!

Snow in Love by Libby Kay – Review by Lorrene Huisman

Snow in LoveSnow in Love by Libby Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a good read, kept me interested, great characters, and a sweet story! Perfect for this time of year I must say! I very much enjoyed it, I was very much invested in the hopes and dreams of the characters!

Christmas, Romance, and Achieving a future…how could I not love it. I loved Connor and Sienna. Both have that instant chemistry, but she wants to take the Gold medal. Connor has fear holding him back. I loved how things were not instant, they had to find common ground, not just with their future goals, but a chance at igniting this spark into a flame. The book was a quick read, but full of impact. You are never too late in life to achieve your goals. Loved this holiday read, and honestly you will too! It will melt your heart!

Wonderful romance and powerful read. It is impossible not to love the author or how they use their writing skill! Easy to dive in and follow! Fun read and get you into the holiday spirit! Highly recommend!

Murder on oak streetMurder on oak street by I. M. Foster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book, to say it was good, would by far be an understatement! I was amazed and full of intrigue as I read. I was left in suspense, I loved the author’s way of writing, and the historical mystery that took place.

I love mysteries. I grew up swearing I was going to be the next Sherlock Holmes SO of course this book greatly appealed to me. The more I dived in, the more I wanted to know. A mystery that even I could not put together-and I am quite good at those things. I was intrigued all the way through. I enjoyed the build up of the story very well and could not get enough. Great characters and suspenseful writing. Nothing was what it seemed. I found the read thrilling, and cannot wait for book 2! Freaking loved it!

Wonderful read, and not one to be passed up for any reason. Seriously! A must read book and author! Needless to say this is a high recommendation from me, if not a high priority to be read book and author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book with a passion! I could not get enough! There was so much intrigue, characters with great development, and of course a plot that sucked you in completely!

I am a sucker for mysteries, but throw in an potentially cursed item…you truly have me hooked! The book took off at a great build. I enjoyed how nothing was rushed, but yet was not too slow! I loved how Jorja had to really use her skill…deaths and more deaths. How were they connected? How can she make sense of it all? As the story went on, I was wanting more. The more I read, the more entertainment and intrigue I got. Loved it! I will definitely read more by this author-definitely hooked upon first read or should I say artifact?

Great author! Great read! And exceptional writing! I could not get enough, I was hooked all the way through, I very much enjoyed this book. And for sure, I highly recommend this book and author!

Return to Gallanvaig (A Quirk of Destiny Book 2) by Catherine Greenall – Review by Lorrene Huisman

Return to Gallanvaig: Beyond A Quirk of DestinyReturn to Gallanvaig: Beyond A Quirk of Destiny by Catherine Greenall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book really took off very quickly. It was just as good, maybe even better than the first book in the series! I was amazed with the story, characters, and the writing all the way through!

The story was realistic beyond means. I reflected so much as I read. It was a powerful read none the less to say the least! I enjoyed the book that took place after a time line of the first. I did not expect the epicness to be as extreme as it was! Death is all around the world, can the world be saved? The book was paranormal , yes, but how vivid it was made me fear what our world could become! Freaking amazing read!

If you have not read the first book, please do it right this minute. Do not walk-RUN!!! The author is amazing, and this story is not to be missed, the first book helps all make sense. Highly recommend this must read!

Raine Down (The Shadow Guardians, #1)Raine Down by C.B. Samet
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story really swept you away at the very part of the reading! I was pulled in with the plot, the characters, as well as the enchanting stories that come together and made this beautiful book!

Raine and Will were amazing characters. Both are different minded, but still strong separate, but even more stronger even when they were together. Both were compelling characters with strong characteristics! Loved the paranormal aspect of the story, the danger, the action, etc. Sometimes what haunts our nightmares or is looming in the shadows or the darkness is not that far from home, I loved how I read this book, I questioned things I take for granted every day with thoughts, The story was exciting and sensational! Loved it!

I loved this book so much! I am very much in anticipation for the next novel! The book was a must read for me, and I know for so others as well Highly recommend this enchanting book as well as the author!

Malayeka (Heartstrings Book 3)Malayeka by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I could not help myself other than to love this book by such a wonderful author! I swear every book that this author creates and writes, sucks me in completely! I felt so much happy feelings as I read this book!

As Cupid, and with mistakes and mis haps, I really loved Malayeka! She had tried and caused her explosions in past jobs she was assigned. She had a good heart, and always tried her best! Though, her methods proved otherwise. I love this quirky book. It was a literal laugh out loud book with a lot of love. Loved the characters Billie and Leo. Great character development, and I loved even though when odds are against you, you keep trying even though you may tumble and fall! Loved this rom com full of heart!

I love this author always, but this book alone made my heart so very happy. It pulled me in right from the start, and held me all the way through! Highly recommend this must read book and author!

Road to the Mansfield (Express Investigations Book 1) by CB Laurence – Review by Lorrene Huisman

Road to the Mansfield  (Express Investigations, #1)Road to the Mansfield by C.B. Laurence
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a new author for me, and I must say I was very much pulled in all the way through with this book, and the story. I was left stunned often and wanted more as I read! It was easy to be immersed!

A great thrill of a mystery! I was immersed and intrigued all the way, I loved how 3 different stories, became one with this mystery that was a foot. Every bit of info proved to be crucial to the story. You could take anything for granted. So much can happen in one night and this book proves that. I loved the writing style, and how the story flowed and came together. I loved the characters and how they changed as things went on. The author weaved together a story of interest and intrigue! Great read! Loved it!

This was such a fantastic and rare gem. Could not get enough of it by any means! I definitely recommend this must read book as well as author! A read that shouldn’t be passed up by any means!
