Black Cat Security by Katerina Ross – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Black Cat SecurityBlack Cat Security by Katerina Ross
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ll be quite honest. I had very high hopes for Katerina Ross’ Black Cat Security. Witches and Magic and Steamyness? Give it to me now Please!! I was very very excited, especially as I started reading about Dragomir.. until I got a few pages into the book… and Dragomir was having some alone time with himself. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, we all do it, but It was his fantasy that was being described that got under my skin. Yes it didn’t go into full detail and he was even a little bit disgusted with himself for thinking such things.. but I would’ve been nice to have a heads up that that was coming. Once you got past that the story was still enjoyable and I liked it. I just personally had a hard time getting over that one particular scene, especially having gone through a situation like that more than once. It was a little bit of a trigger, which sort of put a damper and a dark cloud over the rest of the story for me. I could’ve handled it better I think had I had a little bit more of a warning. Other than that it was an interesting story packed into a small amount of pages

Before the Second ShowBefore the Second Show by Thia Finn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh, Rockstar Romances, really get my heart going. I mean I’ve had a thing for many a rockstars in my life and still do with some of them. (Looking at you Donnie Wahlburg and Louis Tomlinson). I enjoyed this book, and the time it spanned. It’s every girls dream, and I wanted to be in her shoes so badly. I really enjoyed this and I think Thia Finn did a brilliant job telling this story. I look forward to more from this author.

In Other Words (Boothbay Harbor Series Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

In Other Words (Boothbay Harbor Book 1)In Other Words by Pamela Q. Fernandes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the very beginning this book had me hooked, I Felt a connection with Trish from the very beginning. The heartbreak and betrayal she went through is something that i felt torn apart with her. I am a sucker for a good angsty story and this was no disappointment. When your past can haunt you and keep you from enjoying what’s right infront of you. Makes you yell at the characters in the book, but in a good way. This had my emotions all over the place up and down, but I loved every second of it. I recommend highly!

The Flame and The Blade (Flame and Blade Series) by Meredith Hart – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

The Flame and The Blade (Flame and Blade #1)The Flame and The Blade by Meredith Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first saw this book and read the Synopsis, my first thought was ‘Oh this is so my type of book’. Little did I know that would be a complete understatement. As I read more about both Lyria and Vethe I loved both so much. I loved the wit, the humor, the snark, the adventure. I loved how the chapters switched from each point of view but still explained the situations they were going through and internal monologues. This has everything. Action, Adventure, Brilliant Characters, Magic, and very very steamy scenes that weren’t overly done either. I was extremely excited to read this and can’t wait to read more from this author either!

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytalesThe Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When it comes to the Wicked Wolves of Windsor by Byrd Nash. I am a huge fan, every story was better than the last. They weren’t sweet and innocent like a certain mouse controlled company tried to turn fairy tales into. They’re reminiscent of the original Grimm’s Fairy Tales which brought a huge smile on my face. It was hard to pick a favorite of the stories, and some of the twists at the end had me grinning on a few of them. Byrd has a way of taking fantasy and making it her own and still being incredibly empowering, especially for the females. I will say in the last story it was nice to see a flash back to Logan (from Byrd’s other book, ‘Never Date a Siren’) and some aspects of his family life. I look forward to many more stories from Byrd and Recommend this, and her other books to everyone I know!!

Never Date a Siren (College Fae Book 1) by Byrd Nash – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Never Date a SirenNever Date a Siren by Byrd Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have always had a niche for books about the Fae and especially when it has them mixing in with our modern reality, and ‘Never Date A Siren’ Was no exception. I absolutely adored this, and especially the twist when it came to Logan, I about died of excitement. I love Brigit and all the detail that Byrd Nash puts in of all the different septs of the Fae. I look forward to seeing so much more from Byrd and this series. I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy, humor, college life, a little bit of drama, and some amazing twists.

Scoring Chance: A Mile High Miners Novella by Lane Martin – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Scoring Chance : A Mile High Miners NovellaScoring Chance : A Mile High Miners Novella by Lane Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I started this lovely little novella earlier this evening, and once I started it, I shut everything else out to keep reading. I couldn’t stop. I adored Eden, and I adored Rhett too, he was so sweet and charming and even endearing at times. I could feel for Eden and some of the things she had gone through. There were definite moments I felt I would need a cold shower as the level of steam in this book could melt a whole ice rink (pun intended). I loved all the small little Harry Potter references, though I would disagree on Gryffindor being the best house (Proud Slytherin Here) other than that It was brilliant and I look foward to reading more about the Miners Hockey Team and their women.

This was the first book I read from this Author and it actually surprised me. I was skeptical at first but intrigued by the synopsis so I figured I would give it a shot and I’m so glad I did. This book kept me on my toes but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of adventure mixed up in their books of choice.

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Mary Katherine Alexander

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3)Lillie by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So, I Just Finished Naomi, and was very quick to get started on Lillie, as a matter of fact, when I finished my review for the second book, I started Lillie, and didn’t put it down till I finished it. Which was probably not the best idea while on vacation, but was worth the tiredness I went through most of the day. Once again May O’Malley does a brilliant job writing as Naomi and telling such a beautiful story in her books, I adore Bryce and his little girl and It makes me happy to see Naomi and Bryce with each other. It’s such an amazing trilogy and I’m sad to see it end but I loved reading about it so much. I look forward to future books from Mya!
5 out of 5 stars.
