Ricochet by Kathryn Berla – Review by Michelle Mulvey

RicochetRicochet by Kathryn Berla
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read by this author. I thought the writing was good but the book just did not interest me. It was very confusing. Every other chapter the person was called a different name Ana, Tati, and a few others. I tried to get into the story. I think the author did a good job with putting it together but, it just wasn’t a type of book I would normally read.

Fire & Ice (Spicetopia #3) by Phoebe Alexander – review by Michelle Mulvey

Fire & Ice (Spicetopia #3)Fire & Ice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fire & Ice is book 3 in the Spicetopia Series. Each book gets better and better. I absolutely love this series. These books should be read in order but do not leave you with cliffhangers. I have grown to love Phoebe Alexander’s book style so I get excited when I see she has a new book out.
In fire & Ice there are a few of the same characters but a few new ones as well. Of course Cy and Jolie are back and ready to open up this new adult park they have been working on.
Neve and Enya both work for Cy as the head of security and the PR rep. They have a love / hate relationship. Neve seems to have a personality of a wet mop and Enya is a bubbly happy person who likes to talk. While on tour trying to promote the new park, something happens between Neve and Enya.

When they have a test run at the park for the employees, those two seem to have a little fun together and realize they have a bit more in common then they think. Neve has a past and dark secrets he shares with no one and Enya is out of my his closed off vibes he puts out.
Someone has hacked into the parks technology and us out to destroy it before it opens. Cy and Neve have to go to the mainland to meet with a reporter about the things that have happened but, it doesn’t go as planned. Both Enya and Neve have to be smart about things to save their lives and get away from whoever is holding them hostage.

I was shocked by the turn of events in this book and loved the suspense. This book gave you everything you need for a great read. Cannot wait for book 4.

Run from love (bowser belles book 2) by teddy cat Hester – review by Michelle Mulvey

Run from Love: A Bowser Belles Sweet Contemporary RomanceRun from Love: A Bowser Belles Sweet Contemporary Romance by Teddy Cat Hester
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is about Scarlett and Nick. Scarlett has a 6 month rule. It’s long enough to have some fun but, not long enough to have to meet each others coworkers and family. Nick is really into Scarlett and knows his 6 month expiration date is on the horizon. When Nick is required to attend a dinner date with the partners of his firm, he knows he has to show up. Nick is up for a promotion to become partner and is told to bring his girlfriend. He’s afraid to ask Scarlett because he knows she is just looking for an excuse to end their relationship. When he convinces Scarlett to go, everything goes great. Nick couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.
Scarlett also ends up meeting Nick’s son. She tries hard to distance herself from Noah but finds it impossible. Especially when her two dogs Daffy and Dilly love him so much.
Will Nick be able to convince Scarlett to throw her 6 month rule out the window and just be happy with him and their relationship? I thought this book was such a sweet read. I enjoyed reading this book and was glad it kept me interested from the beginning till the end.

THE FISHER MEN ON THE X (FISHER MEN BOOK III) BY REBEL NICKS O’DEY – REVIEW BY MICHELLE MULVEY

Fisher Men On the X (Book III)Fisher Men On the X by Rebel Nicks O’Dey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Fisher Men On The X is the first book I’ve read by this author. I thought the book was well written and somewhat captivating. This book has the reader on an emotion roller coaster throughout every chapter. Sweet innocent, Becca is finally grown up and she’s not the brainwashed little girl the Seh thought she was. She was such a weak, character in the beginning but turned out to be just like Zack calls her…a total bada$$!!! I liked to see how the story progressed. Everyone has monsters in the closet. Even those who seem so strong. The fisher men can save everyone but will settle for saving one at a time.

Battling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother Romance by T. Christensen – Review by Michelle Mulvey

Battling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother RomanceBattling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother Romance by T. Christensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read step brother books from tons of different authors and this book stands out from the others. Most step brother books have more heat then anything. Battling Beckett stands by itself in comparison. Beckett lives with his dad and they are very comfortable. All his life his dad has always told him to becareful because women will be after him because of his money. Beckett goes to an elite high school, he’s the most popular guy in school and the quarterback to top it off. Before Beckett knows what’s happening, his dad is engaged and his fiancé Vivian and her teenager daughter Greer are moving in. Beckett keeps his eye on them and doesn’t really give them the time of day because he thinks they are out to get their money.
Beckett is expected to be nice to Greer and help her along. She sticks out at her new high school like a sore thumb. She is very uncomfortable there. Once everyone knows she knows Beckett, she watched even more by her classmates. Beckett’s team members seem to be smitten with Greer and Beckett doesn’t like it one bit.
Greer is attacked in the bathroom one day and as soon as Beckett hears about it, he changes his toon and tries to protect Greer any chance he can. That only brings more attention to Greer and whomever is out to get her gets even more angry because she wants Beckett for herself.
This book had the reader feeling a lot of different things. I disliked the way Beckett behaved in the beginning but as the book went on I loved him. He is an honest stand up guy and will do anything for this he cares for. Greer and her mom Vivian are very stubborn and work for just about everything they have and refuse handouts. I felt horrible for all the torture Greer endured because of Beckett. I cannot wait to read more from this author. 5 stars isn’t enough for this book.

The Men of Holmby Hills: Chase (The Holmby Hills Series Book 1) by Allyson Simonian – Review by Michelle Mulvey

The Men of Holmby Hills: ChaseThe Men of Holmby Hills: Chase by Allyson Simonian
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Chase: The Men of Holmby Hills is the first book I’ve read by this author and I can honestly say, I cannot wait to read more by her. This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning and kept me interested.
Chase is an actor who has it all. He has all the money he ever needs, he finds a different woman to keep him company whenever he wants and he seems happy.
When a story pops up that Chase was with a minor, he denies it. The club he went to was a twenty-one and over club. The girl must’ve had a fake Id. Now Chase is worries about his image. He may not get cast in certain shows / movies because of the bad publicity he is getting even though it was not his fault.
Carrie is filling in for Susan over in wardrobe. Chase is immediately thinking Carrie is perfect for his image. She’s not bad on the eyes either. Once Chase and Carrie start seeing each other things move quickly. They are from different worlds, they want different things and Carrie starts second guessing things. Someone is out to get Chase and somehow they are always finding info to go to the press with. When i found out who it was I couldn’t believe it. This book was well written, the character were all great,..most of them anyway. Cannot wait to read more by this author.

Friend (What Happens on Campus Series Book 3) by M.L. Sparrow – Review by Michelle Mulvey

FriendFriend by M.L. Sparrow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Friend by M.L. Sparrow is Book 3 in the series. I’m not sure if maybe I should’ve read the others before reading this book but, I don’t think that is the case. The main characters I. This book are Jet and Terri. Terri was attacked one night when she was out alone. She was usually with her friend Jet but that night he was home. Luckily for her Ben and his dog Jester were there and scared off the attacker but unfortunately it wasn’t soon enough. However, Terri feels Jester and Ben saved her life.

Jet and Terri have been friends….best friends for years. All this time, Terri has had a big crush on Jet but he never knew and they were just friends. Finally during spring break, most of the crew goes home except, you guessed it…Terri and Jet stayed on campus. Jet spends a lot of time helping Terri overcome her fear and keep her busy. While they are out Jet finally realizes he has real feeling for her. Feelings that are more then friendship. Will Terri take Jet seriously or will she think he’s just doing this because of what happened?
I thought this book was well written but, it couldn’t keep my attention. I feel like the pages were drawn out and found myself putting my kindle down and taking a break after every chapter.

Forbidden (Tales of Passion, lust & betrayal Vol. 1) by Autumn Sand – Review by Michelle Mulvey

ForbiddenForbidden by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Forbidden is a short book. It’s basically a story per chapter. Every door at forbidden gives you a different story. There’s something for everyone. Some of these were amazing reads. I have never read anything by this author that had this amount of heat. This is definitely worth a chance. I’m sure you will find a few of these that you will enjoy. I hope Autumn gives her readers more books like this one.
