Forever: A Diamond Doms Novel by Ivy Nelson – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Forever: A Diamond Doms NovelForever: A Diamond Doms Novel by Ivy Nelson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I didn’t realize this was part of a series. I have no read any books prior to this one but, I may have to read the last few at some point to understand the characters better

I did like the character and the chemistry between them. The book was alittle much compared to what I usually read. I love a good Dom / Sub book but this one was much more then I like to read.
Russell was married once before and every time he meets a sub, there is something missing. No one has ever been able to get him to take the next step past a scene. Will Gemma be the one to get to him and give him what he needs. I thought this book was well written and was able to hold my attention.

No Way Out (Mafia Elite, book 1) by Amy McKinley – Review by Michelle Mulvey

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

I thought this was a great start to a new series. I loved this book from the very beginning. The only down side for me was the character list. I found it hard to keep the families apart. With that being said, I had a few favorite characters and there were some shady ones also. Liliana is a mafia princess who is a huge asset to her dad. She has people assigned to protect her but she can handle herself in some situations. Just ask some of her dads guards. Sam Caruso has a long well thought out plan that involves Liliana. This book has lots of action and suspense that will leave you guessing what’s going to happen next. Definitely liked this book and cannot wait for more in this series.

Caught by Him by Tammy Mannersly – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Caught by HimCaught by Him by Tammy Mannersly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Caught by him was a good quick little read. I liked most of the characters and can’t help but laugh at the way Willa and Brody met. Brody thought she was an intruder and she was just house sitting next door for her grandfather. These two were definitely attracted to eachother from their very first meeting. They seem to hit it off until people try to band together to keep them apart. Will they be successful or will Brody and Willa be able to form a relationship.
I thought the book was well written and look forward to more books by this author.

Repair (Rescue Me Book 1) by Trish Williford – Review by Michelle Mulvey

RepairRepair by Trish Williford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Repair was probably one of the best books I have read this year. I would give this book 10 stars if that was even possible. This book was amazing from the very first page to the very last.

The book starts the day of Jack Easton’s funeral. Charlotte ( Charlie ) and her family are there to support Tank on this horrible day. Tank is pretty much part of the family. Tank and Charlie’s brother Jude have been best friends forever. Charlie has had a crush on Trent for just about her whole life. Trent and Charlie leave so Trent can go change. They never make it back. They end up going somewhere and spending the night. The next day some hurtful things were said which causes Charlie and Trent to never speak a word to eachother for 8 years. Just and Trent’s friendship takes a bit of a hit since Charlie leaves town all because of Trent.

8 years later, Charlie returns to her hometown of Sunnyville along with a job transfer. What will happen when Trent and Charlie see eachother? So much has happened. Trent has a lot to tell Charlie but, will he?
Chapter 19/20 totally gets me and I was going to have to have words with the author. Haha!

You definitely don’t want to miss out on this great read. I cannot wait for book 2.
Such a great read!

Bared. (A Green St. Girls Romance) by N.D. Jackson – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Bared. (Green St. Girls #1)Bared. by N.D. Jackson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bared was a good 4 star read for me. Athena is such a strong character but sometimes she annoyed me. No matter what happened she kept trying to keep Tru at arms length. No
Matter how hard he tried and he did try hard, she had steel walls guarding her heart. Tru lets her into his personal life in hopes that Athena will open up and really try to give this a shot. Will Athena ever let her walls down and let Tru in ?
I thought this boom was well written and I loved the characters. I just felt like something was missing. I don’t know what but I just feel like I was looking for something else to happen. I’m looking forward to more in this series in the future.

THE MARCY SERIES BOXSET: BOOKS 1-3 by Linda J. Burson – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Marcy Series Box Set: Books 1-3The Marcy Series Box Set: Books 1-3 by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read a few of the books in the series and you definitely don’t want to pass this by. This boxset has everything you would want. There’s a lot of suspense in these books that will keep you interested.

My favorite is the boxset is book 3 which in Agony and Ecstasy

The series should be read in order to follow the lives of the characters. Marcy is one of the main characters and she has been through a lot of heartbreak and fear in her life. There were 2 men in her life Brad and Liam. Both of which were engaged to Marcy and one point. Marcy has nightmares which start with her not remembering them. Little by little she starts to remember certain things. She’s in a very fragile state and then to top things off, she finds out that Liam, the man she loves…the man she plans to marry has some secrets of his own. Marcy needs to choose which man she will end up with. Brad…Liam…Who knows! This book has a lot of suspense and twists you won’t see coming. I thought the book was written well however, I felt like there were things thrown in that weren’t needed like the author had to meet a word count. The book was fairly long so I know that can’t be the case. I did enjoy reading this book and I’m sure you will too. Please be sure to read the books in order.

Houses of Deception (The Madeline Dawkins Mystery Series Book 6) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Houses of Deception (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 6)Houses of Deception by Cynthia Hamilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Madeline and Mike are back at it again in another great book. Houses of Deception is book 6 in the series. Madeline has come such a long way since book 1 and each book gets better and better.
I love how the main characters are a married couple.
This book was filled with action, suspense and just when you think something will happen, something totally different happens. This book kept me interested from the very first page. I’m not a huge fan of these types of books but when another Madeline Dawkins book comes out, I can’t wait to read it.
Thanks for another 5* read.

The Heart of Baker Bay by Danielle Jacks – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Heart of Baker BayThe Heart of Baker Bay by Danielle Jacks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The heart of Baker Bay surprised me. I’m the beginning, I felt like it wasnt going to hold my interest. I’m not sure where exactly my opinion changed but, I found myself really enjoying this book.

Poor Jody….I kinda felt bad for her in the beginning. She seemed like she just couldn’t keep a job. After being fired from her most recent job, she ended up having to go help out / run her grandmothers shop in Clover Bay. Jody told Adam that someone from her family would be there the following day. Hannah was expected to be that person but since Jody promised it, Jody is the one who has to go do the work.

Adam is a small town guy who likes to help everyone out. He wasn’t expecting Jody to be there that morning and he seemed to be really put off about it. I almost feel like Adam was being mean to Jody because of the type of person she portrayed. Once Jody showed her real self, Adam and her began to get along and Adam helped her out as much as he could.

Will Adam and Jody end up being together or will Jody go back to the city life and see how many more jobs she can go thru before finding the right one.

I liked the characters and the story flowed well. Looking forward to more by this author

Beginnings and Endings: A Selection of Short Stories by Jane Suen – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Beginnings and Endings: A Selection of Short StoriesBeginnings and Endings: A Selection of Short Stories by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beginnings and Endings was 4 super short stories. I almost with there was a bit more to them. I think they were way to short to base an opinion off of. I think this was about 35 pages in total and can be read in one sitting. It took me about 20-25 mins to read all 4. What I did read was good but just felt like it brought new meaning to the word short story lol. This author is not new to me and I have read many books by her and enjoyed just about all of them. Looking forward to more by this author.
