Drawing Strength From Words (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 2) by C.A. King – Review by Moriah Venable

Drawing Strength From Words (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 2)Drawing Strength From Words by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Drawing Strength From Words is the second novel in the Four Horsemen series by C. A. King. This is my third novel by this author.

Being one of the Horseman is a thankless job for Gabrielle especially when she is portrayed as some sort of brute in history. Begrudgingly she takes a back seat to her brothers, causing her heart to have a shield around it.

Ryder has been moving since his parents were killed, putting through the systems and on the side of the law for crimes he did not do. While he has never felt an attraction to someone before, becomes of the life he leads, that changes when he is thrown in the path of a mysterious beauty.

I wasn’t sure what to make of this novel because it had been a while since I read this series and was a little confused. But the plot pulled me in really quick.

Ryder was an interesting character with a background and history I wasn’t sure how I would be if I was in his shoes. Gabrielle was a strong and fierce woman. I would think she would be considering she has so many brothers. The dynamics and bitterness she had held creating even more of a suspenseful air about her. Wanting to know more about her.

I really enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to the next book. I wonder whose story are we going to read about next.

I hope there is another novel because this is my favorite by far.

Protecting His Heart: a Lawson Family Novel (Lawson Family Series Book 2) by Tracey Cramer-Kelly – Review by Moriah Venable

Protecting His Heart is the second novel in the Lawson Family series by Tracey Cramer-Kelly. This is my second novel by this author.

Ian is a police officer is in his small hometown. Because of his abusive childhood, he moves in with his best friend’s family who takes him and they eventually move. Once he is older, he returns to town. He isn’t looking for a relationship but has an attraction to Rachel. The more he sees her, the more tempted he is.

Rachel has issues of her own. The guy she thought she would marry but things aren’t looking good. She wants to be a wife and have a family. Her attraction to Ian, makes her think she should break up with her boyfriend Josh.

If she breaks up with Josh, what then? Will Ian and her be able to have a relationship or will his past taint the relationships and life they could have.

I really loved this story. Its very rare that the female lead is already in a relationship with someone before meeting the male lead. Which was some nice added conflict for the plot.

The characters made you feel for them especially Ian. Reading more about him was so heartbreaking but at the same time I was glad that he was able to move away.

I look forward to another novel.

A Dark Sparrow Box Set (Dark Sparrow Series Books 1-3) by India Kells – Review by Moriah Venable

A Dark Sparrow Box Set - Books 1-3A Dark Sparrow Box Set – Books 1-3 by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Dark Sparrow Box set features the first three books in the Dark Sparrow series by India Kells.

The first novels features three brothers who have secrets and three women who come into their lives.

The brothers are trying to get away from their father but with their life, they never can.

I love the characters and how the men are okay with being alone or suffering from family tragedies until they meet the one that will melt the ice around their heart and show them there is more to life then how they are currently living.

It sounds like there will be three more books and I am excited to meet the other three brothers and see how this series ends.

Friend (What Happens on Campus Series Book 3) by M L Sparrow – Review by Moriah Venable

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

Friend is the third novel in the What Happens on Campus series by M. L. Sparrow. This is my fourth novel by this author.

Terri is the twin that is proud to be able to take care of herself but her life changes when she gets attacked on campus. She decides to stay home for Spring Break.

Her best friend Jet stays on campus with her to fill her days with fun and to help her heal. For three years, he has paid no interest to her feelings for him. While struggling to be a writer, he starts to see Terri in a new light. Can he convince her his feelings are real?

This is my favorites of the series so far. It was a little hard to read because of the topic and Terri’s attack but I am so grateful that the author including this as part of the plot because it is something that does happen a lot on college grounds and sometimes it feels like it gets swept under the rug with not much being done.

I hope we get more of the series because I love college romances.

Calling the Curveball: a Lawson Family Novel by Tracey Cramer Kelly-Review by Moriah Venable

Calling the CurveballCalling the Curveball by Tracey Cramer-Kelly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Calling the Curveball is the first novel in the Family Lawson series by Tracey Cramer-Kelly. This is my first novel by this author.

Jamie Lawson has a bright future playing baseball until tragedy strikes, changing the course of his life. Five years later, he is still coping and trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life.

In walks Kira Walker, who asked him and surprising he agrees but will the pain he still holds preventing him from finding love?

I don’t want to give anything away but this was an emotional story that I was not ready for but truly enjoyed. I fell in love with the characters as well as the supporting characters and hope we see them again in their own books.

The emotional roller-coaster ride from the relationship between Jamie and Kira just had me wishing for a happy ending for them and for Jamie to finally move forward in life and be happy. With such a simple plot, the story was more complex and intricate with the characters and their relationships to each other.

I hope there is another book in the series because I would definitely read it.
