Hazed (The Hazed Series Book 1) by Brittany Butler – Review by Katie Matthews

Hazed (The Hazed Series Book 1)Hazed by Brittany Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Hazed is the first book that I have read by Brittany Butler and one that I really enjoyed. I liked the real feel to the story and I found that I was easily engaged in what I was reading. The author’s writing was really good, real, raw and emotional at times. I liked that I didn’t find the story too predictable either which meant I was guessing what was going to happen. I liked the characters, I think they are characters you need to get to know and I found that the more I read the more I learnt about them and the more I liked them. There were some difficult subjects in the story but the author wrote about them well. Taylor and Hayze both had their own problems and I really felt like I was right there with them, particularly Hayze and just wanting the best for them both.
I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

Back in the Ring (The Predator Series Book 4) by Brooke May – Review by Liz Vrchota

Back in the RingBack in the Ring by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well my goodness! This was a fun and enticing little read! I have not had the pleasure of reading any of the other previous Predator series books by Brooke May before I scooped up Back in the Ring, but I had no problems at all with understanding or character placements etc., and I really truly am stoked to now be able to to go back and have three books to devour while I wait for the next book to come. This book has a bit of everything in it, from the drama and the comedy to break it up, tearful moments where I was wanting to reach out and hug the characters, to the moments where I was so over the moon in love with them. Every emotion felt was real and raw, I felt as if I was there with the characters a lot of the time.

Bijou Augustine is determined to keep her dead husband’s dream alive, the struggling and dilapidated youth center. Things only become more complicated for Bijou as her daughter approaches the difficult tween years and tries every last nerve she has. Then life as she knows it will be forever changed when she meets the handsome Noah. As perfect as they seem however there is a secret lurking in his past… You HAVE to one-click and find out how this story comes together for Bijou and Noah. I am sure that you will fall in love with them just as much as I have! Happy reading!

His First Lady by Avery Scott – Review by Gail Guerrero

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

His First Lady by Avery Scott

Four Stars

Every man needs a first lady that isn’t going to bring him down but make him stronger. To struggle with him and to win with him. Kendall is a perfect first lady and Michael couldn’t have better. I really enjoyed the story. The author gave us the behind the scene view of politics. Which is mostly a bunch of men and women trying to get ahead. There are many that care but most are looking for careers. I think I would vote for Michael. We need more people who have lived at the bottom but made it to the top. People that are driven to be more and do more. The story was classic in its path but unique in the delivery. The characters were flawed but showed growth and a need to be better. You see how past experiences effect your judgement even when that’s not how you wanted it to go.

The Dirty Rooster by Kelly Mooney – Review by Emma Morreale

The Dirty RoosterThe Dirty Rooster by Kelly Mooney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was not too enamored with the beginning of this story. Preston seemed like a complete misogynist and a total creep in some of his interactions with Summer. Some of it was just to get under the skin of Jenny but that doesn’t really make it better. He’s a rich boy with daddy issues but he genuinely wants to be a good person.
Summer seemed like a smart girl who makes out of character bad decisions. She repeatedly says she’s done trying to convert bad boys but doesn’t stick to it. Jenny reminded me of a similar type of friend.
The characters grew on me as I read more and as they all grew. It could just be that it was brilliant character development but it almost put me off the whole book. With that said, I’m glad I continued and I will look for the next in the series.

Misfortune of Song: Druid’s Brooch Series: #5 by Christy Nicholas – Review by Renee Ullery

Misfortune of Song (Druid’s Brooch #5) by Christy Nicholas

The brooch is in another family member’s possession and another story to tell. Like the previous story, I loved the family love that is Maelan has for his granddaughter, Orlagh. His love for her leads him to make some questionable choices. In this story, there is love, magic, and action throughout. At times, I did find it hard to stay focused and the story’s flow was a bit slow. However, the story did pick back up.

FORTITUDE by Carrie Dalby – Review by Madison Degraffenreid

FortitudeFortitude by Carrie Dalby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fortitude by Carrie Dalby


Fortitude is set in the period of time in our history where the Jim Crow laws were still a huge deal. Claire is the story’s main female character and she goes against the odds to assist her friend in a colored camp for soldiers. She stands out like a sore thumb with her red hair and freckles but beats the odds by doing her best. She faces many struggles as the story progresses and experiences love and friendship in unlikely ways. I marveled at how strong her character was and how she matured during her time at the camps. Her story made for a wonderful read and I had a hard time putting the novel down.

The Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Woman America Loves a LatteThe Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Woman America Loves a Latte by Holly Tierney-Bedord is certainly one quick and unusual read. It is like nothing else I have read and it is so stupidly crazy, it is good. You know like one of those cheesy movies that are so bad, they are good? It is silly, it is quirky, it is unique. Given there are so many players and there is so much going on, Holly has done well to keep it all together. It is well written, with plenty of suspense and dream, mystery and intrigue and plenty of quirkiness.

It is one story that is interesting and definitely unique in it’s telling.
