Claimed (The Torzial Affair Book 3) by Via Mari – Review by Moriah Venable

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Claimed is the third novel in the Torzial Affair series by Via Mari. This is my third novel by this author.

Jenny has gone through a lot and has come out on top but someone is still after her and its time to finally find out who is after her so she can finally live a peaceful life.

Her relationship with Brian has changed from sexually to them finally admitting their feelings to each other. Brian opening up his heart and showing Jenny the world she had always been curious about, but with danger lurking around every corner, who is really loyal to who?

This was another fast paced novel where I wasn’t sure what was going on and there was so many twists and turns and people in danger and mafia kidnappings, that I had to reread some parts.

This series surprised in some many ways and I am glad that I gave it a try.

I can’t believe I finished this a few hours and I am on the seat of seat to find out how this ends.

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Moriah Venable

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1)Shattered by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered is the first novel in the Torzial Affair by Via Mari. This is my first novel by this author.

While attending her best friend’s wedding, Jenny Torzial attracts the attention of Brian Carrington. They sneak off for more privacy and when a kiss leads to possibly more, Jenny kicks him in the groin and runs out the room, confusing Brian. He tries to think nothing of it, but he wants to know more about her.

With the possibility of mafia, tracking her because of her association, Brian could be way in over his head.

This story really surprised me. I thought I knew how it was going to go but I was so wrong. Jenny is a strong character who is trying to make a name for herself and make her father proud but there are things about her past that she is start healing and turns to alcohol to face her demons.

Brian has a hard life and is unable to trust people but shows he has a caring side when he meets Jenny.

I can’t wait to see what happens next.

After Wrath (The Deadliest Sin #2)After Wrath by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After Wrath is the second novel in the Deadliest Sin series by Gwyn McNamee. This is my eleventh novel by this author.

Continuing where Wrath left off, it’s been a few years but are things really quiet?

Here we are introduced to the character Aleksander who wants revenge. I know he is the bad guy but I really did love reading from perspective even possibly finding a love of his own.

I don’t want to give too much away but I highly recommend reading this.

Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 1) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Moriah Venable

Wrath (The Deadliest Sin #1)Wrath by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wrath is the first novel in the Deadliest Sins series. This is my tenth novel by this author.

Initially reading this, I felt like there some other part of the story that I had missed. The main characters had already fled and were trying to rebuild their lives but I wasn’t sure what had happened to them before.

Continuing to read, it didn’t matter what I missed. The story gave me flashbacks and bits of information to put some pieces together though not a full picture.

When his women is taken,  Konstandin risks everything to rescue her even if it meant his own life.

I love this author and I will happily read everything she writes.

Surviving Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 3) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Moriah Venable

Surviving Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 3)Surviving Wrath by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Surviving Wrath is the last novel in the Deadliest Sins series by Gwyn McNamee. This is my twelfth novel by this author.

With such a fast paced conclusion, it left me with a lot of questions and I hope the author may come back to this series to fill in the blanks. Felt like the ending was open ended with the possibility for me which I am all for. The ending definitely leaves you speechless and not sure what to think. I have all these questions about what happened to the characters and how things progress.

The novels are really short and quick to read but they are worth it.

Out Bad (Sinners or Saints Book 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker – Review by Moriah Venable

Out BadOut Bad by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Out Bad is the first novel in the Sinners or Saints series by Janice M Whiteaker. This is my first novel by this author.

Joe is a former bad boy who had turned over a new leaf. He has a sweet and caring personality but because of his past mistakes he still beats himself over it, while also trying to find redemption.

Gwen is a sassy, hardworking, and stubborn woman who isn’t looking for a relationship just wanting to have fun and be casual. She also has issues of her own that she is trying to get away from.

While Joe is trying to convince Gwen that they can be more, his past returns and threatens the life and relationship he has found for himself. Will be able to protect Gwen?

I am really starting to love romantic suspense stories and this one really caught up attention. The chemistry and attraction between Gwen and Joe was off the charts. The emotion and turmoil coming off from each character. I just wanted them to find peace and be happy.

I am hoping there is more in the series because I would love to read more by this author.

Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Moriah Venable

Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1)Dangerously Close To Extinction by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dangerously Close to Extinction is the first novel in the Knollville Legends series by C. A. King. This is my second novel by this author.

Finding herself caught between not knowing about her past and being abducted by someone unknown to her, Tawny begins a journey to discover more about herself before it’s too late.

This was an interesting take on the shifter genre and one I hope there is more of. Tawny was a different protagonist then what I normally see and I felt her name fit her character because it was also unique.

There was a lot of twists and turns and left me wanting to quickly turn to the pages to see what happens next.

With school starting again tomorrow, I’m glad I got a chance to read this and can’t wait for the next book.
