Ruthless Heir (Mafia Elite Book 5) by Amy McKinley – Review by Katrina Jones

Ruthless Heir: An Enemies to Lovers Mafia Romance (Mafia Elite, #5)Ruthless Heir: An Enemies to Lovers Mafia Romance by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was my first mafia book so I don’t know what to expect but I can honestly say, I plan to read the rest in the series for sure!
It took me a bit to get into it and understand the families and characters but after a couple chapters, I was sucked in!
I have to say, it was better than I expected!
So much angst in the beginning but it quickly turned into chemistry and passion between Luc and Summer!

Cosplay Worthy by Quiana Glide – Review by Moriah Venable

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Layla Bennett dreams of being a comic book artist. She has the chance to meet her favorite comic book artist Vic Williams at a convention but the meeting doesn’t go well when she becomes speechless.

Things take an unexpected turn when Vic and Layla connect online and soon get into a long distance relationship.

I really enjoyed this novel even more so with an African American protagonist. Not something I see a lot when it comes to stories like these.

I loved Layla and her ability to make costumes for Cosplay. It is amazing the things people are able to make.

I highly recommend this story.

On Viking Seas (The Forerunner, Book 3) by Jay Veloso Batista – Review by Crystal Jimmo

On Viking Seas (Forerunner, Book #3)On Viking Seas by Jay Veloso Batista
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Good read.

The first few chapters were a little hard to get through because it took me a second to realize what was going on and the lore was a little confusing, but once I got past that the book was really good. The action scenes were well written and the characters were awesome and I enjoyed the book. I can’t wait to see what he puts out next!

Shift Happens (New Orleans Nocturnes Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Mrs R

Shift Happens (New Orleans Nocturnes, #2)Shift Happens by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Although this is book 2 in the series, it is a standalone.
This was a brilliant light hearted romance. Sophie has followed her best friend and moved to New Orleans. Now that she knows about the supernatural, she wants to fulfill her dream of being recognised as a witch; after all she has her late grandmother’s grimoire, so she must be a witch.
Getting bitten by a werewolf and being accused of cursing the werewolf pack was not in her plans. Trace just wants to find his best friend and he thinks he knows just the witch responsible, only he hadn’t counted on biting and being so attracted to her.Together they try and solve the mystery of the missing wolf.
I loved the interactions of all these characters, the lighthearted humour just made it so much more entertaining.
I listened to this book on audio and the narration from Hollie Jackson is top class and she brings such a warmth to the characters that you can’t help love them. I would definitelyl isten to other books narrated by Hollie.

Kissing the Kavalier by Annette Nauraine – Review by Netania Lim

Kissing the KavalierKissing the Kavalier by Annette Nauraine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this historical romance that kept me turning the pages so that I read it one go. This novel is set in 1800s Vienna and inspired by Richard Strauss’s opera, Arabella, which I absolutely loved, having begun to enjoy opera during the past year of lockdown. The writing is gorgeous and the plot is extremely fast-paced, which kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. It reminded me a little of the first Bridgerton novel, only this novel was much more interesting and better written. I’d read any book by the author Annette Nauraine.

Kissing the KavalierKissing the Kavalier by Annette Nauraine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Kissing the Cavalier by Annette Nauraine is a wonderful historical romance that is based on the opera, “Arabella”, by Richard Strauss. It is set in Austria in 1867- which is beautifully brought to life by the author. All the lush historical and cultural details and the rich textures woven through the story pulled me in and made me feel like I was right there, experiencing everything right alongside the characters.
A story of finding love unexpectedly.
Looking forward to seeing what Annette Nauraine does next.

Thank you, Annette Nauraine!

Forged by Secrets (Deadly Isles Special Ops Book 3) by Amy McKinley

I have a serious crush on all three of the Hale Brothers,  but I think Tyler has been my favorite from the beginning.   After reading this book it solidified Tyler as number one.

Malina has so much from her past that I never would have expected.  She has lots of secrets from her past that nobody knows, even her childhood best friend.

Tyler is the ultimate protector and he proves it.  He is a Navy SEAL who will protect his Country and those important to him.

There are so many things to say, but not sure where to start and don’t want risk giving anything away.

If you haven’t read anything by her I highly recommend anything she has written.  I have read several of her books and there is a connection between this series and the Grey Ghost series but can be read as a standalone.

City of Whispers (Imperial Assassin Series Book 1) by Katt Powers – Review by gabby elliott

City of Whispers (Imperial Assassin, #1)City of Whispers by Katt Powers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Katt powers has a way of taking you to a place you would never even imagine with the vivid descriptions and worthy telling the story kept me gripped the entire time. When I first started to read this book I thought hmm ok lets give it a try. So when I started reading I started picturing everything she was saying and got totally lost in this book world. I was up until three in the morning reading this book and could not put it down. This is a book that I definitely can’t wait for the second one to be done thank you for such an amazing book.
