Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC) by T. Birmingham – Review by Melissa Agena

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Book 2)Written in the Stars by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series just keeps getting better! Written in the Stars is Book 2 in the Fallen Eagles MC series written by T. Birmingham. This book follows the President of the MC and of course one of our Markham girls. Davis “Eagle” Landon and Winter Markham have had a thing for each other for quite some time now. However, it’s finally time for those two to figure things out. However, Eagle has another murder to solve. This time the murders involves Winter and a copycat serial killer. You won’t believe who this murderer is! I wasn’t expecting it at all. Despite the 13 year age gap between Eagle and Winter they end up being perfect for each other. Eagle is Not to mention how ridiculously hot the sexy scenes end up being. But can Eagle save Winter when the time comes? I absolutely love this author and the way that she can pull you in and keep you enthralled. She is very good with the dichotomy between the love story and a murder or in this case…murders. I simply cannot wait for the next book to come out. I have feeling who the next couple is but what other twists will we find ourselves wrapped up in! I definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves romance and murder mysteries. Of course, like all series I advise to start with book 1 so you can follow a continual story, but you really don’t need to here.

SHADOW’S KEEP: A NOVEL BY MEGHAN O’FLYNN – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Shadow's Keep: A NovelShadow’s Keep: A Novel by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am truly amazed by this author. Everything I read by her keeps getting better and better. Shadow’s Keep by Meghan O’Flynn follows Deputy Sheriff William Shannahan. When he finds the body of a child in the woods while he was running William is determined to find the actual killer, especially when the Medical Examiner advises that the child was killed by a dog. However, this animal would have had to have very large paws and be able to remove the child’s eyes. This story also follows William’s girlfriend Cassie. Cassie has a son about the same age as the victim. Cassie has some underlying issues that have been pushed far back in her mind and when this murder happens, those issues come out. The only thing for William to do is to protect her and her son while the investigation takes place because there is a lot that is discovered and comes out. Both of these characters have their own personalities that make this story even more interesting. I love the way that this author writes. She is so completely descriptive that it is entirely captivating. She sucks you in and the only way out is to finish this book. Yes, it’s a page turner that has lots of twists and turns that you can imagine. I cannot wait to read the next book from this author. She has become one of my favorite writers and will definitely recommend this book and any others by her.

NITE FIRE: FLASH POINT BOOK 1 BY C.L. SCHNEIDER – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Flash Point (Nite Fire, #1)Flash Point by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So very impressed! Anyone can tell you that fantasy is so not my genre to read, but I was intrigued and now I’m very impressed. Nite Fire: Flash Point is book 1 in the series by C. L. Schneider. This book follows Dahlia Nite who is a shifter that worked for Queen Naalish in the world of Dimera. Dahlia is half human and half dragon. Queen Naalish strips her of title of Executioner and sentences her to be executed herself. Obviously, Dahlia is a fighter so she flees to the human world. There she travels from place to place where she doesn’t stay very long. Essentially, she fights what is lurking in the shadows to stay alive. She ends up back in the town that she continues to return to because it was the one place that she truly loved. Now she is helping the police to solve a crime. This book was pretty amazing in the sense that the author sucks you in from the beginning and keeps you there the entire book! Not only is the storyline great but so is the way that the author describes things. She makes you feel like you are truly a part of the story. I do recommend this book and actually cannot wait to read the second book in the series. This book is about a strong woman heroine and her ability to continue to fight. You will not be disappointed.

A TERRIBLE BEAUTY (FALLEN EAGLES MC SERIES – BOOK 1) BY T. Birmingham – Review By Melissa Agena

A Terrible Beauty (Fallen Eagles MC Book 1)A Terrible Beauty by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So not what I thought it was going to be. But I am not disappointed at all! A Terrible Beauty is the first book in the Fallen Eagles MC Series by T. Birmingham. Typical MC series are men only clubs. This one has both men and women, which I was happily surprised. All of the club members are former military and some have even served together. Summer “Kit” was captured and held for 30 hours along with Hammond. What happened during that time was a horror no one wants to ever happen. That happened 10 years ago. They have kept that secret from mostly everyone. Kit was supposed to be with Hammond’s brother Leland or Lee. Hammond is married to Kit’s older sister Autumn. The secret between Kit and Hammond has damaged their relationships. As well as the love story between Kit and Lee redevelops throughout the book there is also a mystery that is going on. Someone is trying to sabotage the families of returning military men and women from war. Now that person is targeting Kit, Hammond and Casper. Casper was also with them during the capture. There are so many ups and downs as well as twists and turns. It was an emotional rollercoaster as well. I absolutely adored this book! I cannot wait for the next book in the series. It is no wonder that this author is an International Best Selling Author!

UNTRAINABLE – By Jamie Schlosser – Review By Melissa Agena

UntrainableUntrainable by Jamie Schlosser
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an adorable book! Untrainable is a romantic comedy written by Jamie Schlosser. I’ve ready Jamie’s other series, which were awesome! This book is just as good as those other ones. This one is even more adorable! This book follows Theodore “Theo” Legend. He is famous because is family had a reality tv series and he was considered the “Black Sheep” of the family. Then his parents were killed in a car accident. Hadley Holiday is famous because she was on a talent show on tv with her dog Matilda and made it to third place. Theo is now broke and the laughing stock of the press. He needs to get on the good side of the public. But he also wants Hadley too. So what does he do? He comes up with a realty show comedy where Hadley “trains” him to be a decent human being in public! She isn’t so sure of the idea but goes along with it because she was banking on winning the competition. I love the chemistry between these two! They are so different but it works for them. It doesn’t hurt that the both of them are pretty gorgeous and they both are attracted to each other. This book really is pretty funny and so sweet! I love Jaime’s writing style. It sucks you in and makes you think you are in a rom-com movie! I absolutely adore this book and I would definitely recommend a good book. You will not be sorry you bought this book!

A TANGY CHRISTMAS KISS (CHRISTMAS KISS SERIES – BOOK 2) BY ALLYSON R. ABBOTT – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

A Tangy Christmas KissA Tangy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is definitely a seasonal must read! A Tangy Christmas Kiss is the second book in the Christmas Kiss Series by Allyson R. Abbott. This story follows Melanie “Mel” on her curious adventure to Spain. Mel’s mother calls her out of the blue to ask her to go to Spain to help her Aunt while she recovers from surgery. So basically anything that could go wrong on this trip happens. The upside to this is the sexy man that sat next to her on the plan. He decides to help her even though he doesn’t speak any English and she doesn’t speak any Spanish! All the while Mel doesn’t seem too concerned as to why her mother couldn’t go to Spain. But you have to read to find out why! So, basically this story is full of funny and quirky moments that keep you laughing and wondering what’s going to happen next. If this book doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit then I don’t know what will! Allyson has such a way with her books that the stories have so many unexpected twists that pull you in and have you on your toes wanting to see what’s going to happen next! This is such a sweet story that you really don’t want to put it down. I cannot wait for the next book in the series to see what kind of romantic adventure we take ourselves on! Again…this is a Christmas must read!

IT ENDS TONIGHT (BAYOU DEVILS MC – BOOK 4) BY A.M. MYERS – Review By Melissa Agena

It Ends Tonight (Bayou Devils MC Book 4)It Ends Tonight by A.M. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am absolutely in love with this book! It Ends Tonight is the fourth book in the Bayou Devils MC Series by A.M. Myers. This story is an emotional rollercoaster waiting to happen! The characters are phenomenal! This book follows Quinn Dawson who is an Event Planner and Lucas “Smith” Julette. They meet by happenstance and there was a strong connection immediately. However, there are further circumstances that bring circles to a close later on in the book. Quinn has a rough past and coincidentally, Smith has a similar one. Those pasts bring the two closer together. I love these characters and how they connect and work together. They bring the best out of each other and ultimately help each other heal. There are so many twists and turns to this book that you forget that it’s a love story and the lack of sexy scenes. There aren’t very many of those scenes but like I said…you don’t need them. This book is amazing in its own right! This series keeps getting better and better. There is an emotional pull every time you read each book that it just sucks you in and the next thing you know you are finished with the book and want to read the next one. You can read these as a standalone but like I always recommend, you should read them in order because there are continuing and/or underlying stories for the MC. A.M. Myers is becoming one of my absolute favorite writers! I can’t wait for the next in the series!

A PRICKLY CHRISTMAS KISS (CHRISTMAS KISS SERIES – BOOK 1) BY ALLYSON R. ABBOTT – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

A Prickly Christmas Kiss

A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book is all about the Christmas spirit! A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is the first book in the Christmas Kiss series. Emma or as her friend Carla calls her ELF due to her initials goes to a small town called Polerton, which oddly resembles the North Pole. She was supposed to go with Carla but Carla couldn’t make it. When she gets there she meets Mr. & Mrs. C, who seems to be just like Mr. & Mrs. Clause. When she finally gets to the cabin she learns quickly that living up in the woods isn’t as easy as it looks. Then there comes Sue. Sue is what ELF named this stray cat that found her. Sue is curiously smart and always knows what ELF needs. Sue’s name in the end was actually Santa’s Little Helper! For a few days ELF and Sue get into all kinds of mischief when she meets the local veterinarian/part-time police officer Rudi. Coincidentally, Rudi has a bright red nose when she meets him. Rudi is instantly attracted to ELF. This story is so cute that I couldn’t put this book down. Now, this book is definitely a romantic type of book rather than an erotic one due to the lack of sexy scenes. But I think that if the story were to have any sex scenes it would ruin it. I love it just as it is. I also love when animals are added to the storyline and especially when they have a comedic role just as Sue did. I truly enjoyed this book a lot and I cannot wait to read the next in the series!
