BECKONED, PART 6 – ADRIFT IN NEW ZEALAND BY AVIVA VAUGHN – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

BECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New ZealandBECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New Zealand by Aviva Vaughn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful way to end a great series. If you are looking to join in on the series now, I would definitely suggest you start from the beginning and invest your time to learn about Soren. There are reasons why Soren is at this place and time and has made the decisions he has made to be here. Quite frankly, I am so happy for him and his character living his life to the fullest and fulfilling his dreams. Once again, Soren is faced with tough decisions with his life concerning his business and his romantic life. In this book, his work takes him to New Zealand where he is confronted with women from his past and the current challenges he faces with Elena seeing as though she has decided to compete again. Going through the series you can’t help but fall in love with Soren and only hope the best for him. Not to mention Aviva’s gift for giving you the most gorgeous and vivid descriptions that transport you to where the characters are. I love this series and am very sad that it is all over. However, I cannot wait for another series to emerge from this author.

PROBLEMATIC LOVE (ROGUE SERIES BOOK 8) BY LARA WARD COSIO – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Problematic Love (Rogue Series Book 8)Problematic Love by Lara Ward Cosio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you haven’t read this series you need to start from the beginning. The reason I say this is because not only is this series really really great, but it is intense and in depth. You cannot miss anything. Especially these two characters, Danny Boy and Amelia. Danny Boy is Shay’s brother and is the bad boy that Shay continues to try and keep out of trouble due to his drug addiction. Amelia is Danny Boy’s therapist. So the conflict goes without saying…How do these two match up? How is Amelia able to be everything that Danny Boy needs, the girlfriend and the therapist? Danny is also struggling to be worthy enough for Amelia. He is so wrapped up in his own self-worth that he may mess things up. However, let’s not forget how when these two get together how they connect and know how to steam things up. This story is definitely intense and so good. You get sucked in and trapped just like you do with the rest of the series. Needless to say I loved it! I wouldn’t change anything about it at all!

Bonded (A Twisted Hearts Love Story book 3) by Autumn Sand – Review by Melissa Agena

Bonded (A Twisted Hearts Love Story book 3)Bonded by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Third time is a charm for sure! I loved this book and I am in utter love with this series! This series continues with the quietest member of the bunch with Magnum. To me Magnum was also the most mysterious. There wasn’t much background chatter on him in the last two books, so it was nice to finally get to read his story. Magnum’s story is so incredibly heartbreaking. Then we start to read about Brenda. Brenda if you remember is the nurse that helped Cyma with her daughter. Her story was equally interesting. Now someone is gunning for Brenda and Magnum is making it his mission to keep her safe. But while he is doing that, Magnum and Brenda start succumbing to this chemistry that keeps pulling them closer and closer together, which in turn helps help them from their past. This story has a lot of twists and turns and a lot of the unexpected. What I didn’t expect were the tears that I did cry for Magnum’s character. It kind of hit home in a lot of ways and I felt so bad for him. This story was also so incredibly steamy as well!!! But all in all, this was a seriously great book. I read it in one sitting and loved every minute. I could not put it down. I cannot wait for the next one!

Until Fools Find Gold (Providence Gold Book One) by Mary B Moore – Review by MELISSA AGENA

Until Fools Find GoldUntil Fools Find Gold by Mary B. Moore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Get ready to laugh til you cry and pee your pants! This book is not only hysterically funny, it is sad and a little bit dark too. But it is very sexy as well. Until Fools Find Gold: Happily Ever Alpha World is Book 1 in the Providence Gold Series by Mary B. Moore. I haven’t read any books by this author and after reading this book, I am now hooked! This book was definitely a page turner! I couldn’t put it down. In this story we follow Luna, she running from her father who abducted her from Vegas and wants to sell her to pay his debts. We also follow Noah, who is Luna’s best-friend’s brother. Apparently, they have been in love with each other for quite some time. His brother aka Luna’s best friend has repeatedly told him to stay away from him but since Luna returned back, he is definitely not listening. But since Luna went missing Noah is making it his life’s mission to get her back. This was a great story and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

HAWKE (MEN OF SYN BOOK 1) – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Hawke (Men of Syn, #1)Hawke by Anise Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a refreshing book! I haven’t read a story like this in a long time and I very much welcomed it. Hawke is the first book in the Men of Syn series by Anise Storm. Syn is a new BDSM club that has opened up and Nathaniel “Hawke” Hawkins is the owner. Charlotte is the party planner that is going to be throwing the Masquerade party for the Grand Opening. The moment she meets Hawke she is very drawn to him in the sense that there is something very familiar about him. Until she realizes what why that is, which is a complete shock to her and mostly to him! This book is mostly about both of them trying to stay away from each other but there is a pull that they can’t seem to fight. Hawke has a past that stops him at every turn. There is so much depth in this book but so much sexiness too. I truly loved the authors writing style and I truly can’t wait for the next book to come out!

MAYHEM (A TWISTED HEARTS LOVE STORY – BOOK 2) BY AUTUMN SAND – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2)Mayhem by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Even better the second time around! Mayhem is the second book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story Series by Autumn Sand. Although we are not following Tony and Anaya in this book, they do have cameos. In this book we follow Tick and Cyma. Tick is Tony’s right hand man, former Marine and of course a serious ladies man. Cyma is a mom of a very young daughter who is just trying to get by through any means that she can. Tick’s background is the reason he is a player, but the moment he meets Cyma, that all ends. However, for Cyma she feels the pull toward him but her background keeps telling her to stay away. Tick had other plans. This book is so well written that it’s almost like you aren’t reading but you are a part of the story. I love the characters and the twists and turns that are incorporated within. This truly is a great book and a great series. I can’t wait for the next book!

Hate to Love You (Baker’s Bunch Book 1) by Lily Ryan – Review by MELISSA AGENA

Hate to Love You (Baker's Bunch Book 1)Hate to Love You by Lily Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was full of emotions constantly pulling you one way to the other, but it also kept you on your seat. Hate to Love You is Book 1 in the Bakers Bunch Series written by Lily Ryan. Samantha has been in love with her brother’s best friend Cole since she can remember. Cole, has the same feelings but hasn’t acted upon them because of his best-friend aka Sam’s big brother. Sam’s brother has always told Cole to stay away from her so, Cole has never done anything…until now. Sam’s on her way to college and her brother has landed himself in rehab. There are so many ups and downs and twists and turns to this story is unbelievable. This story is not only a great love story but it is a great coming of age love story. This is also a definite Happily Ever After story. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone! Can’t wait for the next story to come out.

BEDLAM (A TWISTED HEARTS LOVE STORY BOOK 1) BY AUTUMN SAND – A REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Bedlam (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #1)Bedlam by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was one of the best stories I have read in such a long time! Bedlam is the first book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story Series by Autumn Sand. This story follows Anaya and the sudden landing of an exclusive job of redesigning the interior at the elusive club Pulse. She has no idea how she’s contracted it, except for the fact that the owner has asked for her specifically and only her. Then when she shows up to the meeting and meets the owner, she can’t seem to take her eyes off of him. Small problem though…Anaya has a boyfriend, Iggy. Iggy is the head of the mob. However, the owner of the club has eyes for her too and can’t seem to stay away from her either. There are so many twists and turns it’s not even funny. I’m warning you now though, there are some pretty rough and graphic scenes in terms of rape. But there is a happy ever after to this story! This book is definitely a page-turner. I loved every minute of it! You will not be disappointed! I cannot wait for the next book in the series, especially if it is as good as this one!

A PERSON COULD DISAPPEAR HERE BY TERRI GEORGE – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

A Person Could Disappear HereA Person Could Disappear Here by Terri George
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

HOLY COW! I was intrigued from the beginning but did not expect it to be so freaking good! A Person Could Disappear Here is a novel written by Terri George. This book is full of suspense and mystery. I loved every minute of it! Abbey is from London and has met a man on Facebook whom she is going to fly to Denver to meet. His name is Jensen. We don’t know much about Jensen except that he is handsome and is super perfect for Abbey. Everything goes well until they go into Nebraska to meet up with Jensen’s grandfather who is getting out of the hospital supposedly. That’s when everything goes wrong. That’s when Cristina, Abbey’s bestfriend steps in and starts her own search party to find her since she did not come back to London. However, that’s when EVERYTHING starts to become twisted and crazy! Like I said before, I did not expect things to turn out the way that they did. I seriously couldn’t put this book down and I in fact wanted to read more. But I was glad the end turned out the way that it did. I can’t wait to read more from this author if they are going to be just like this one!

TAMING THE TROUBLEMAKER (THE HILLS OF TEXAS BOOK 3) BY KADIE SCOTT- REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Taming the Troublemaker (Hills of Texas, #3)Taming the Troublemaker by Kadie Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG! I absolutely loved this book! Taming the Troublemaker is the third book in The Hills of Texas series by Kadie Scott. Kadie is an awesome writer and if you haven’t read any of her books then you should start with this series. Now, you can read this book without reading the first two books but like I always say…you should always start with the first book. So if you are going read a standalone this is the book to do it with because this book is so stinking good! Autry is the 4th Hill sibling and he loves every bit of his Ranch. However, he is also known to be a bit of a playboy and has yet to settle down. He doesn’t have any prospects of settling down either. Beth Cooper is a teacher and has had the biggest crush on Autry since she can remember. Now, Autry’s father and mother are ready to retire but they are bit worried about Autry. So they decide that if Autry can keep it in his pants for 6 months then he can have the house and the ranch. But here comes Beth and a bunch of twists and turns that make that nearly impossible! LOL. Like I said. I love this book! You will not be able to put this book down. I is definitely a page turner and one you will definitely enjoy!
