Southland Academy for Supernatural YouthSouthland Academy for Supernatural Youth by Sandra Tentler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

These are new authors for me, but I love this type of book so I decided to give it a shot. I wasn’t disappointed. This book introduces us to 6 main characters. Vlad, the son of the world’s most famous vampire. Devlin, the werewolf shifter. Lily, the daughter of the most well-respected warlock. Amber, the ferret shifter. Fiona, the quick-witted snow owl shifter and Sakana, the black-tip shark shifter, also pitch in along the way. I liked this story! I hope there’s more coming.

Eye of the Storm (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 2) AUDIO BOOK by Amy McKinley – Review by Meg Tyrrell

This is one of my favorite authors and I couldn’t wait to listen to this one. Broken Circle (book 1) was actually the first book by Amy McKinley I’d ever read and loved it. This one did not disappoint. The narrator does a fantastic job and really keeps the story where it should be. One of my favorite series by far and can’t wait for the next installment. This one focused on Chris Shaw and the situations he faces on a mission. We get introduced to Mari Dias who is the love interest in this book. Perfectly done!

Love by Design (The Meraki Series Book 2) by Effie Kammenou – Review by Meg Tyrrell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book 2 of this series and I honestly think you could read these as standalone novels, but it’s so nice to have the full back story. This is Mia and Nicholas’s story. If you read book one, this is the middle sister’s story. It was so well told with great word building and a wonderful backstory. I love these two characters and this series. I can’t wait for the next!

Betrayal at the Beach (Dangerous Curves Book 1) by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Meg Tyrrell

Betrayal at the Beach: A Cozy Christian Mystery (Dangerous Curves Book 1)Betrayal at the Beach: A Cozy Christian Mystery by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a new author for me. I really enjoyed the story line. Our main character is Sunshine Baker, she’s a YA librarian. I liked how the author brought the attention of libraries needing more help. In this book Sunshine basically gives her backstory. Then a crime is committed in the library and she’s asked to help the police solve it. It’s a good story and I will be excited for the next book in this series.

Murder at Honeybee Lake (Shadow of a Doubt Book 2) by Jessica Aiken-Hall – Review by Meg Tyrrell

Murder at Honeybee Lake (Shadow of a Doubt, #2)Murder at Honeybee Lake by Jessica Aiken-Hall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book two from this series and I have read the first one. I definitely don’t think this is a standalone. I think you should read the first one and then read this one. This story focused on Randy and Ben. I love how all of the characters are connected and how they make everybody part of their little family. This also had a lot of Mandy in it which was good but it was definitely Ben and Randy’s story. Tessa and Emily are in here as well but mainly background. This is a great series and I recommend it.

READY FOR FLYNN, PART 1 (READY FOR FLYNN SERIES) AUDIO BOOK by K.L. SHANDWICK – Review by Meg Tyrrell

This is a first author for me. I loved this story and the narration was fantastic. This story was amazing and well thought out with consistent word building to keep you on the edge of your seat. This story follows Valerie from the times she’s 15 till she’s almost 19. The trials and life situations she has to endure hard heart and soul shattering. Everything about this story is great. There were a few times I wanted to yell at her, but it’s been a real long time since I was 15. Which with all the emotion this book brought out in me I’d have to say it was FANTASTIC! Can’t wait for the next part in Flynn and Valerie’s story.

Seductive Prey (Relentless #1) by Vivian Fiano – Review by Meg Tyrrell

Seductive Prey (Relentless #1)Seductive Prey by Vivian Fiano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author. I loved the synopsis of the book and couldn’t wait to get started. I love giving a “new to me” author a chance. I wasn’t disappointed. This book was great. Our main female character is Jordan and our main male character is Grant. Jordan is a ballet instructor who has decided she’s going to join the national guard to help her get some more education under her belt. Grant is a Boston cop who just so happens to be in the same squad as Jordan. Their relationship is fast and steamy. However, they don’t have such a great love story without some bumps in the road. Read it to find out what (or who…) those bumps are. Can’t wait for book 2!

Sure As Hell (Life Is Hell Book 4) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Meg Tyrrell

Sure As Hell (Life is Hell #4)Sure As Hell by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read all 4 books in this series in order, and I highly recommend doing that so you can know the characters the way you’re supposed to. This book is Lark and Jaru’s story. I have to admit, I was really shocked when they got their own book, I had thought they were just background characters. Boy was I wrong. They are such amazing characters and I ended up loving this book just as much as I loved the others. This one has a bit more of a “dark” presence to it, so if BDSM and thruples aren’t for you, just be advised it is here. However it’s done so respectfully and tastefully that it’s barely even a thing. I love everything of Naomi Valkyrie’s I’ve read and can’t wait for book 5!

I Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole – Review by Meg Tyrrell

I Will Bury YouI Will Bury You by Brandy Nacole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the new author for me. I don’t normally go for psychological thrillers but this one was really good. This book featured Ann Winters as the main female character however things get a little distorted when we find out that she has DID. You’ll meet different characters throughout the story, Since this topic is something I’ve only read about, I thought this was done very well. It’s a good book and I recommend it and I will be researching this author more to find more books by her.

Ocean’s Light (Blood of the Pirate BOOK 1) by Mina Chara – Review by Meg Tyrrell

The Ocean's LightThe Ocean’s Light by Mina Chara
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This isn’t a new author for me, I’ve read multiple books by Ms. Chara before. Which is why the second I saw this new series, I was all over it. This was fantastic and beautifully written. The story itself was a bit different than I first imagined it would be. I guess that’s why I’m the reader and not the author, because it was done perfectly. This story follows Ms. Evie Waters as she tries to search for the one thing her parents left her when she was taken to the orphanage. This adventure has pirates, magic, sea creatures and puzzles to keep you guessing. Absolutely recommend and can’t wait for the next book!
