Blackbird’s Deliverance (Silent Secrets Series Book 4) by Lisette Kristensen

5-Stars

Blackbird’s Deliverance (Silent Secrets Series Book 4) by Lisette Kristensen was an exciting , emotional, and action packed read. Once again Blackbird is on a mission but this time it involves her family. Her mother has been kidnapped. There is more going on than meets the eye though. I loved Blackbird in this novel and that the author allowed more emotion to show through with her operatives. There was a hint of romance in this novel as seen in the other books of the series but not enough to deter from all the action. This book was an easy read and I read it in one sitting. I highly recommend reading in in order from book one. This series is to die for and it is definitely one of my favorites.

The Girls across the Bay (The Knox and Sheppard Mysteries, Book 1) by Emerald O’Brien

5-Stars

The Girls across the Bay by Emerald O’Brien was an excellent mystery novel. I loved the two sisters Grace and Madigan. They were both very strong and determined females. The author did a magnificent job with their development and I loved the background she provided on them. I hate that they were separated for a time while in foster care while they were young but I felt it really helped play into their strength. I also really enjoyed the flow of this novel and descriptive scenery. I found it easy to place myself in the characters shoes to visualize what was happening. This novel is definitely worth the 5-stars and I highly recommend. I look forward to reading more from this author as well as from this series.

Irresistible Heroes – Heroes of Your Heart by Various Authors

5-Stars

Irresistible Heroes – Heroes of Your Heart by Various Authors is an amazing collection of magnificent stories. This collection features so many wonderful characters and I loved the romance. Having read Tamara Ferguson before, her story really stuck out to me. Her character Sam was my favorite. She was very strong and brave despite her amputation. Ben seemed perfect for her.

I really enjoyed this collection and felt the storyline of each book was easy to follow and flowed easily from page one all the way to the end. Being an Anthology full of various romances, I feel that it could be enjoyed a wide audience.

The Fisher Men X My Heart (The Fisher Men Book 1) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey

5-Stars

The Fisher Men X My Heart (The Fisher Men Book 1) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey was an eye opening, heart wrenching and romantic read. I was hooked by the storyline from page one. I loved the writing style the author used to portray the story as an ongoing journalist interview. It really helped me focus in and gave me breaks from overwhelming heartache at times. I loved all the characters in this book except I seriously disliked the antagonists. They were created to be disliked though. The author made it easy to feel the pain and emotions of the main character during and after “the incident”. This story does feature graphic rape and sexual assault scenes that may not be appealing to some but really set the tone of the story. This is also the first book of this series. I highly recommend it and I look forward to reading more.

Aiko (The Heartstrings Series Book 1) by Brooke May – Review by Madison Degraffenreid

Aiko (The Heartstrings Series Book 1) by Brooke May

5-Stars

Aiko is the first book in the Heartstrings series and was an interesting read. Aiko is a Cupid who has a rocky and colorful past. She is assigned to Alejandro to help him find his match. Alejandro has a hard time with romance but has a way with animals. The two made for an invigorating read.

I loved the banter between the two main characters and also the different dates they worked through. Aiko was very to the point and Al was full of sarcasm. This book was easy to read and I could not put it down. I was at the end before I realized it. I highly recommend this fun and romantic read. I can’t wait to read more in this series. I loved it.
