Journeys Through AllCreation (Journeys Through Book 3) by James Talisman – Review by Colleen Noyes

Journeys Through AllCreation (Journeys Through Book 3)Journeys Through AllCreation by James Talisman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Let me start by saying the third book in this series, was hands down my favorite! Not only is there tremendous growth from the author, but you become so incredibly invested in each of the characters. The vivid picture the author brings you will have your mind wandering all over the place wondering if places like this really exist and if so how can I get there asap! The character interaction is at an all time high and I found myself more engaged with them, laughing, rolling my eyes in a good way, and feeling like I finally got to really know them and fully embrace them. There is a lot of action which I felt was portrayed so detailed and realistic. I could see this story playing out in my mind as if I was watching a movie, which made it that much more exciting for me. The author brought back a lot of our favorite characters from previous books and a few surprises along the way. If you liked the first two you will fall in LOVE with this one. It is a true epic fantasy and that’s coming from a gal who doesn’t often pick up fantasy books.

Squid (Moto X Book 5) by Brooke May – Review by  Robin Rankin

Squid (Moto X Book 5)Squid by Brooke May
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Squid (Moto X Book 5)

Levi is a man child whose favorite past time is woman, drinking and gaming.  He has watched his friends find their special ladies but he isn’t willing to risk his heart.

Kindle is a hero! She is strong, independent and has no problems telling a man (Levi) no.

Levi was a frustrating character but extremely likable in my opinion.   He put love in a box that he was unwilling to touch when it was really what he needed the most.

He had been through some stuff that scarred him, which most people have, he just didn’t handle it like an an adult would or should.

I enjoyed watching Levi grow up and change into the man he should have been.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blood Oath by Amy McKinley is the second book in the Mafia Elite Series. The main characters are Sofia and Enzo. They have always been drawn to each other even when they were kids.
Enzo and Sofia struggled in life with the crazy mafia looking for Sofia and Enzo trying his best to keep her safe.
Amy Mckinley did a fantastic job once again with the series of the mafia elite. It’s crazy how she can picture these two characters chasing each other.

No Way Out (Mafia Elite, #1)No Way Out by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Since this series can be read as stand alones , I started on book 4. Naturally I continued the order 5, and 6. However I want more! I was hesitant to start the begging book well because these other books kind of spoiled some things for me if you would. However, boy was I wrong! There were MANY surprises for me!! I never felt bored once. I always love that we get both sides to the story so we can be inside both characters minds. We get to see Lil being a strong & fierce woman who overcomes many obstacles. We see Max doing whatever it takes to protect & care for those he loves. (Literally anything) . This book was action packed, suspenseful, feisty, heart warming. I loved going back to the beginning and reading about where it it all started, and about the OG’s of the gang!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The darkest one yet! Hence the title but can em & steanfo find their way out of the darkness ? Together they can, once they put all the bs aside. I really like how supportive Stefano is. Also how strong Em is, she might be the strongest woman in this whole series! To endure what she does, and still come out fighting is amazing! This book left me speechless at times, we finally get the closure we need about some pesky rodents who shall not be named. Overall I enjoyed the realness to this one. It’s kind of a overcoming trauma, healing, action packed love story.! Can’t wait for more!!

Blood Oath (Mafia Elite, #2)Blood Oath by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the very first few pages this book had me in my feels! However I did read these books out of order so I kind of spoiled it for myself. However Amy has a way of sucking you into these stories that I completely reacted like it was new information. Or it felt like I was learning about things and characters for the first time all over again. I did LOVE this couples love story the most so far. They had a tough times & a tough fight! In newer books you get snippets of their relationship but nothing compared to this. Sofia is feisty , spunky, and stands up for herself. Even if she’s small I think she could make any of these grown mafia men cryyy! Safe to say she’s a fan favorite!! Overall story was action packed, lots of drama, some anxietyy for me lol, lots of cute sweet moments, and lots of passionate moments! 10000 stars on this one!!

The King of Hearts

Called on the tarts,

And beat the Queen full sore;

The Queen of Hearts

Nearly fell apart

But vowed she’d be beaten no more. 

The Queen of Hearts,

She played her cards,

While poisoning the wine away;

And fed it to every King of Hearts

Who enjoyed chasing

Their queens like prey. 

Losing the game of Stolen Hearts is how she gets them to play: the cads, the wife-beaters, the white-slavers. Predators turned into easy prey. It’s no accident that she’s known as the Queen of Hearts by most males in town and she won’t rest until they all pay for their crimes.

Welcome to Nursery Crimes, where tales are twisted and happily ever afters are not always guaranteed….

Queen of Hearts is the story of a victim turned avenger of all women suffering under the rule of a cruel and unfair patriarchic society–and the unexpected love that finds her.

The success of her mission and her own safety now rides on her new partner, but while she trusts him in her quest for justice, trusting him with her heart is a whole other story.

Bound by a common goal and their love for each other, they will either put an end to the crimes against women in town or die trying.

Tickety Tock: Wicked Warriors MC Arizona ChapterTickety Tock: Wicked Warriors MC Arizona Chapter by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Manda Mellett is an amazing story teller and this one is no different. I have become a follower of the Wicked Warriors and I am in love with them all. Dwarf is an outstanding person. What he has endured his entire life due to his lack of height is just wrong in so many ways, But when he discovers that it was not a deer that ran into the road in front of his motorcycle, but a female, his protective instincts kicked into overdrive and he made sure to protect her. Even when the thing/person tormenting her couldn’t be seen.

I am fascinated with the was Ms. Mellett has combined the paranormal in this story. You must read this book to appreciate how real this all comes across.

Definitely a must read author.

Bake Off (Bake Believe Series Book 2) by Cori Cooper – Review by Torey Foster

Bake OffBake Off by Cori Cooper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bake Off is the second book in the Bake Believe series. It is a fun story of a young girl coming into her own, really starting to discover herself, and her family in a whole new way.
She doesn’t only have normal teen issues to deal with, like school, and boys. She has a special gift that she doesn’t understand and is having trouble getting a handle on it. In this book, she takes a trip to visit her family in Arizona, hoping to learn more about her gift and her family. She wants to use her gift for good but she has to understand it first.
Once again the author has done an amazing job pulling you into the pages of the book. They don’t just tell you how the character feels, they bring it to life so that you can imagine the feeling as if it is happening to you. The story is light and funny and the main character learns some life lessons along the way. There is just enough mystery to without getting too complicated, making this book perfect for anyone from the age of 10 and up. This book is just very well written. I can’t wait for the next book in the series and I would definitely recommend.

This book should carry a warning though! Each chapter is followed by a delicious recipe that you will want to try.

I love finding a new series to read! At first I didn’t realize this was a series that was already more than one book long and as I finished this, I found myself wanting to know when the next one was being released. I was really excited to see there are more books already. I am definitely going to be starting the next one asap! This is the story of a boy in 9th century England who finds himself cursed by a witch and living in 2 worlds. It is a combination of historical fiction, fantasy, and ghost story! As a teacher, I thought of a lot of people that would enjoy this book and plan on recommending it to some of my previous students. It was an easy-to-read, original story that kept me turning the pages for sure!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was my first book by this author, although I see that he has other series that have a similar vibe so I am definitely going to check those out. One of the things that I loved about this book was the strong female character. I love reading about female detectives that get the job done and the mysteries solved, which comes all the way from my childhood reading Nancy Drew books. I think it is so important for authors to write independent, capable female characters across all genres. I definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys mystery series. It kept me interested from the beginning to the end and made me want to go to the beach!

Tickety Tock: Wicked Warriors MC Arizona ChapterTickety Tock: Wicked Warriors MC Arizona Chapter by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved every single book I have read by this author, so of course I had to pick up this one. This story is a bit different from what I have experienced from this author and I enjoyed reading every page of it. This book has twists and turns, paranormal aspects, hot bikers, and a strong woman. Dwarf and Raven’s first meeting wasn’t under very good circumstances. I found myself rooting for them because I think if they can work out some of their struggles they could be great for each other. Raven is trying to overcome her past but there are forces making that difficult. Dwarf has very little faith in women wanting him instead of wanting to go through him to get to his brothers. This is a must read, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this book.

This author never disappoints. I was taken aback a tad by the plot; just not a typical setting for this author. As I said before though, I was not disappointed. You really get to feel and understand Raven and Dwarf. Two amazing characters that are clearly underestimated, and of course they fit together like a puzzle piece. I have never read a book by this author and been anything less than excited. I am normally not a romance reader, but I make an exception because every single one of these books are fabulous from beginning to end!

I cannot divulge in the plot or the characters without giving away too much, so I will just say if you enjoy scary movies with some romance tied in, this novel is for you.

Unlikely to Tell (A Parker Lake Novel Book 4) by Olivia Sherwood – Review by Jennifer Gordon

Unlikely to Tell (A Parker Lake Novel Book 4)Unlikely to Tell by Olivia Sherwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having thoroughly enjoyed the previous books in this series, I was really looking forward to this latest novel and to reading Karen’s story, and I was not disappointed. I loved being back in Parker, Oklahoma, with its small town living and as usual I was fully immersed in the setting due to the descriptive narrative. Karen Posey is the local school teacher and she enjoys a simple, quiet and uncomplicated life, and although her natural beauty has attracted the attention of every man in Parker, Karen remains irrevocably unavailable. Karen believes she is destined to be alone and has developed a wall of defence around her heart in order to protect her, and the secrets she lives with.

However, a chance meeting with a man in the town’s grocery store may just change everything for Karen. Brody Cooper left Parker as a shy, nerdy kid but has reinvented himself and is now a successful, confident alpha male, who’s also rather sexy. Brody has had to return to his hometown to figure out his future, as his hard built career is in jeopardy due to no fault of his own. The last thing on his mind is love, but then he meets the rather aloof Karen whilst shopping and his interest is instantly piqued. Now he just has to win Karen over with his self confident charm, if she will let him. The characters are wonderfully detailed, and I felt like I was there with the likeable and relatable Karen and Brody. I was definitely cheering them on hoping they would get their HEA. The heartwarming storyline flows well and kept me happily turning the pages, and left me thinking about the characters long after I had finished the last page. A wonderfully written story and a enjoyable and engaging read.

I have read many books by this author and I have really enjoyed each one. I like how she is able to bring the character’s pasts into the books and makes a very vivid picture for the reader. I love how there is a nice mix of romance and drama. The characters are also really down to earth and believable. I really don’t want to put the books down. This one was the same.

The chemistry between the lead characters is electric and grabs the reader. There is enough drama and adventure to keep you glued to the pages. I also like how the books flow and really compliment all the books in the series. I will definitely read more from this author in the future.

Wow how can I put into words the feelings and thoughts this book has left me with?
What an amazingly gripping story, Romance, Thriller, Family Issues, Paranormal and MC alpha males all rolled into one. Add a book hangover as it begs to be read in one sitting.
The story follows Raven as she visits her old family home that shew has been left after the death of her Gramps. The memories of abuse and twisted family issues follow her and the fear of the past coming back to haunt her literally.
An accident in the middle of the night brings Dwarf into the picture, an ex-marine with his own past to manage. Dwarf and his brothers in the Wicked Warriors MC are all part of bringing the conclusion to the nightmares that follow Raven.
This book is a must read if you enjoy a rollercoaster of feelings and getting caught in the web of images woven for you by the author.

I won’t waste your time by giving a rundown of the whole book, but I will STRONGLY suggest that you check out this author and this book in particular. Even if you haven’t read the others in the series, it is a complete standalone. Lonny is a quick-witted, smart-mouthed, feisty little rebel and I just LOVE her character. This author is a master at setting the scene for all of your senses. You truly feel like you are experiencing the action right along with them. And, oh boy, is there some serious action and delicious smut! It took a bit longer for me to experience the “True Effect”, but it was inevitable for fall for True as well. Their chemistry is off the charts hot and I insist that you start reading STAT!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

During a picnic, Maia the Mermaid makes an ice cube necklace for Trezzie.

When Fig almost drowns in the water, the ice on the necklace becomes bigger and helps Fig stay above the water, being used as a life preserver.

Reading this made me feel like I was back in 5th grade science class. Learning about the phases of water. Now only did I enjoy the pictures but it was great to learn about water and how it freezes.

I think I am starting to get into middle grade books again after so many years of not reading them.
