Moonlit Mirage: A Cook Islands Romance (Moonlit Destination Series) by Amy McKinley – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Moonlit Mirage - A Cook Islands Romance (Moonlit Destination Series)Moonlit Mirage – A Cook Islands Romance by Amy McKinley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Moonlit Mirage was a short quick read. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into reading this.
This book was a rockin rollercoaster of events. I thought the book was well written. Very well written actually.
Sometimes I feel an author tries to hard to fit so much into such a short book but this was not the story here.
This book had so much suspense and I just kept scrolling to see what was going to happen next.
I really enjoyed reading about Nadia and Cade. This book was a great read!

Mountains Climbed (Mountains Series #2) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Mountains Climbed (Mountains, #2)Mountains Climbed by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mountains Climbed is book 2 in the series and let me just inform you, this is one series you do not want to miss out on. The books are meant to be read In order since the story continues and you do not want to miss a beat. Sarah and James met and had a friends with benefits relationship. It was more for both of them but somehow they both seemed to move on. The only problem with that is, James knows Sarah’s children, mom and best friend. So when you go through a breakup sometimes it’s hard to get over it when everyone knows what happened and can bring up the name of the person.
In this book James is deployed and with someone else. Sarah has met someone who seems to be more her style. What is with Sarah and the younger men, who knows. While James and Sarah both seem content in their new relationships, they still cannot stop thinking about each other. What will happen when James returns in 9 months. Will he see Sarah, Will he want to rekindle things with Sarah? Will Sarah want to open that door again or will she move on and try not to get her heart broken two times by the same person?
I really enjoyed these two books in the series so far. I loved the characters and loved seeing Sarah’s kids, Abby especially grow up. I cannot wait to read more of this series. Sooo soooo good!! Trust me!!

Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series #1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series Book 1)Mountains Wanted by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mountains Wanted is book 1 of the series. What a way to start a series off. Wow this book was definitely a 5++ star read.
Those of you who know Phoebe’s reading should expect nothing but top notch! She has become one of my go to authors and she never disappoints us. This book has some amazing main characters and some pretty good supporting character also.
Sarah and James are both likable from the very beginning. I love how Sarah is a grown woman who has been around the block once or twice, has a good head on her shoulders and knows what she wants.
James is a tad younger then Sarah but you would never know it if the author didn’t tell us that. Sarah and James meet one day at a lecture. However they have seen each other before that. When Sarah saw him at a coffee shop previously, she didn’t hesitate to check him out from head to toe.
When James and Sarah get together, it’s as friends with benefits but does it ever really stay that way in the book world? These two have such chemistry, your kindle will be on fire as you read it.
There were so many good parts in this book and I don’t want to give any spoilers away. There’s a lot of depth to this book and you will enjoy reading about everything. Sarah’s best friend, Sarah’s children and we can’t forget James and his family.
Mountains wanted is packing lots of heat and will leave you begging for more.

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

Scoring Chance was a quick, easy, happy read! I loved how Eden went from poor and working a few jobs, going to school to try to better herself to having an easy life with amazing people around her helping her succeed!
Rhett knows Eden is like a piece of forbidden fruit to not be touched but he can’t get her out of his head.
Both Eden and Rhett have a dark past that is hard for them to deal with. Being Rhett is a hockey player, Eden knows she can never be in the stands to cheer him on because of her past.
This book was a great read and I loved how the story unfolded. I absolutely loved the characters and cannot wait for more from this author.

Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Covert Threat (Gray Ghost #5)Covert Threat by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

  • Covert Threat is book 5 In The series. I have not read all the books in the series but, I believe you do not have to in order to know what is going on.
    This book was great. I found myself staying awake later at night because I didn’t want to put the book down.
    Covert Threat was filled with action, suspense and confusion. As a reader I can honestly say the author had me hooked from the very beginning. Who doesn’t love a good book with a hot former navy seal?
    Jules is one of the top scientist working on an antidote known to be able to save lives. Everything is going well until
    One morning she finds an odd message on her computer at work. She always shuts her computer down when she leaves for the night and no one can get into her office building without proper ID.
    When things start happening her boos hires Trev to be With Jules to and from work every day. People start getting injured and possibly even killed and they are framing Jules for it all.
    Jules has an old cookbook from her mom that has a letter inside from her mother. Her mom told her to only open the letter if she feels threatened because it is like opening Pandora’s Box. Jules doesn’t know if she should open the letter or leave it where it is.
    Jules doesn’t have a lot of memory from her younger years. Her family was in a boating accident where her dad and sister were killed. Luckily Jules and her mom were saved but doe to that accident, Jules doesn’t really remember anything. She’s not sure what they letter holds.
    When she finds out who is behind the mysterious things happening, she starts to remember certain things from her childhood. Things are a lot more serious then she thinks. This book was a great read!review by @xchellex

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2) by Lisa Lanay – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Taming Zane (Almost Perfect Series Book 2)Taming Zane by Lisa Lanay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this read. It was a happy, fun, sweet read! Shannon and Zane were perfect for each other. Zane is a smoking hot plastic surgeon who travels the world to donate his time to others who are in need. Shannon is close with her family…much closer then you can imagine. Her and her brothers all love within feet of each other. Shannon is flying to California for an interview for a grant. When some sexy stud sits next to her on the plane, she doesn’t know how she will get through her flight. Lucky for her, Zane is a really nice guy and is down to earth. They spend some of the flight getting to know each other and Zane gives Shannon her number so she can give him a call and he can get the name of a real estate agent his brother used. If the interview goes well, Shannon will be moving there for a little bit.

Luckily for Shannon, she finds Zane’s number and decides to call him when she she’s out shopping and realizes her wallet is not in her tote bag. Did she leave it in a store or did someone take it out of her bag? Zane is there for her In a heartbeat and let’s her stay at his place while she tries to figure out a plan. Zane and Shannon are perfect for each other but, Shannon doesn’t plan on moving from her family and Zane has patients who wait months for an appointment with him.

How can something so long distance work?
You have to read this book and see if they are able to
Overcome the distance.
I thought this book was just an all around great read with great writing and a great storyline that will grab your attention and keep it from the first chapter.

THE RUNAROUND: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy (CAROLINA CONNECTIONS BOOK 6) By SYLVIE STEWART – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Runaround (Carolina Connections #6)The Runaround by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book from page one. You always know within the first 2 chapters in your going to love or hate the book. I should’ve known before I started reading that I was going to love it. Sylvie Stewart has had me hooked from the first book I’ve read of hers. I can add this to my list of faves by her.

Jax finds out he has a daughter but she isn’t a young little girl. She’s a teenager! How do you expect a teenage girl to react finding out she has a dad whom she has never met before. Jax keeps trying but, Lola wants nothing to do with him.

Jax reaches out to Ari who he knows thru mutual friends. Ari has an awesome voice and becomes Lola’s voice teacher. Jax knows getting Ari involved could be risky because there is a lot of sexual tension between them. Ari worked on creating a website for Jax last year and it was a miracle he got thru it without throwing her down.

Ari and Jax try to be friends but they both imagine more happening between them. What will happen when they slip up and give into temptation? Will it be a one time thing like Jax is used to or will he not be able to get enough. How will Lola react? Will Lola ever see Jax as her dad or will she always have the teenage attitude? I felt bad for Jax throughout the book because he tried hard to get to know Lola but she blamed him for not being around even though he had no idea about her until that phone call from her mom.

I look forward to more books by this author. I love her work. You don’t want to skip by this great read. Grab your copy today.

Set it Free (Fallen Eagles MC Book 3) by T. Birmingham – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Set it Free (Fallen Eagles MC Book 3)Set it Free by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well well well, The Markham sisters are back and ready for a fight. This is book 3 in the series and is all about Spring. I loved Summer ( Kit ), I loved Winter but neither of them compare to Spring and the demons she fights on a daily basis. A lot of the same characters reappear in book 3 so that’s a plus! I love this group of characters and cannot wait for more.

This book shows how someone fights an addiction and what they go through on a daily basis. An addiction is t something one can control and risks losing everything they have. Then addiction can cause one to lose their family, significant other, job, ect. Some struggle more then others.

This book has you feeling a lot of feels. There’s some heartache, some happiness, lots of action and of course suspense.
I highly recommend you read this book but, you should definitely read the series in order.

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Fat Girl's Guide to Loving Your BodyThe Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This author has been one of my favorite authors for quite sometime. This wasn’t one of my favorites by her but, I thought this book was ok. This book can be very helpful for just about anyone. There’s a lot of useful information and processes that if understood and followed one can learn how to love themselves. The author has a few pages where she wants you to keep a journal and gives you assignments.
This book isn’t just for the “ fat girls “ the book touches on a lot of different body images. It’s just a way to help you learn to love yourself.

Second Chance (The Flowers In December Trilogy, book 3) by Jane Suen – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Second Chance (Flowers in December #3)Second Chance by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Second Chance: The Conclusion of the Flowers in December Trilogy by Jane Suen was a good read. Connor and Mary Ann have had their share of heartache and confusion. Now that Connor has decided to quit his job and leave the big city will he and Mary Ann be able to pick up where they left off or is to late for them to have a happy ending. I enjoyed reading about this couple and the obstacles they were faced with. What will happen when they are face to face again after so many months of silence. Mary Ann is one of my favorite characters. She’s just the average down to earth, hard working girl just looking for love. You won’t be disappointed reading this trilogy
