Chasing Clay (The DeWitt Agency Files Book 3) by Lance Charnes was an intriguing and mysterious read. I would rate this book a four out of five stars. I loved how deep in the details the author went to bring the characters and the story alive. I enjoyed getting Matt’s point of view and seeing how his mind works. The pace felt slow, but understanding the limited frame really did add pressure for things to happen. I was glad that I kept reading because by the end I was hooked.
Fire & Ice by Phoebe Alexander is a steamy continuation of the Spicetopia series. I would give this book a five out of five stars. Definitely can be read as a standalone but some of the background characters make more sense if you have read the other books. I enjoyed the continuation of the idea but the new plot. I loved Enya and Neve’s characters. Enya is a spitfire with damage control on her mind and Neve is 100% dedicated to security. True opposites attract vibes. I kept turning the pages to find out what would happen next, and what would be said next. I loved the sense of humor.
Love & Ghosts (Crescent City Ghost Tours Book 1) by Carrie Pulkinen was a gripping read. I would give this story a five out of five stars. I love a good paranormal romance and this one had me from the beginning. I loved the characters, Emily and Sean came alive for me. The stories and the supernatural elements of New Orleans alone always manage to pull me in. I enjoyed the pacing, it is always something I look for but specifically in paranormal reads where sometimes certain elements can be drawn out.
Evergreen by Mya O’Malley was a romantic heart warming read. I would give this book a five out of five stars. I loved June and Graham’s point of views. The two point of views add value and I enjoyed the misunderstandings. June was a fun read, very relatable and just adorable. Graham has the best intentions but his foot seems to live in his mouth. Maxine was hilarious and definitely stood out.
Deliciously Sinful Liaisons by L.M. Mountford was a super steamy read! I would give these steamy books a five out of five stars. I loved the quick steamy reads. The characters were intense and I enjoyed that each story had a different plot. I would love to read more in depth or what happens next to some of these stories.
Falling For His Badass by Jessika Klide was a steamy romantic quick read! I would give this book a five out of five stars. Lizzy was a cute character to get to know. I could relate to some of her concerns and it was nice to see her overcome. Brody is a considerate alpha male, which was a nice surprise. I enjoyed the plot and the pace was well thought out.
Hang On To Your Shirt Tails (Chasing Tails Book 2) by C.A. King was a great continuation on this well created world. I would give this book a five out of five stars. The fight is not over and as Brodie and Tails continue to struggle in a world that hates them you can really see that. I have read a few books by CA King now and something she does so well is weave life lessons into her stories in dark and beautiful ways. This was a great quick read and I cannot wait to see what happens next!
Hidden Tracks by Zoe Lee was a romantic read. I would rate this book a four out of five stars. I loved the plot and the characters. The pace felt appropriate for the story and it was a nice journey. I loved Astrid’s character and seeing her grow and develop felt genuine.
Jax Marlin – To Catch A Marlin by T.K. Toppin was a great read! I would rate this book a five out of five stars. I loved the mystery and the plot of the story. I loved Pedroni’s point of view his character intrigued me and kept me glued to the book. I appreciated his point of view and it was a different way of thinking. I loved the mystery and hunt. I look forward to more books!
Supernatural Love Stories in the Absurd: Four Book Collection by Gwyn McNamee writing as D.P. Payne was a completely unexpected read. I would definitely give this series a four out of five stars. There are four different stories in this book and each one less expected than than the last. The consistency in the tone and steam factor definitely keep you turning pages. The tone comes off as redemption and the plot centers on learning and growing. The steam factor is off the scale, if you are looking for a hot read here they are!
