Hula Girl by Lara Ward Cosio was sweet and romantic read. I would give this book a five out of five stars. I loved Ava, she was brilliant and hilarious to read! I loved the twists and turns throughout the story. I felt myself in Ava’s shoes and really felt like I experienced her journey too. I did enjoy getting Ford’s point of view too! He was a great read.

In the tail end of the 24th Century, Special Inspector Michael Pedroni pursues Jax Marlin, a beautiful and elusive vigilante. It’s a wild cat and mouse chase that will take him from Earth to the Bacchus Dome and beyond.
Jax Marlin is not your average criminal. She seeks out evil-doers and law-breakers, doling out justice in whatever way she sees fit. But lately, she finds she’s been gift-wrapping criminals specially for her favorite copper.
Four of the world’s leading criminals are lining up to form an alliance. Jax is determined to stop them. Hot on her heels, Inspector Pedroni finds himself questioning the difference, if any, between her justice and his. More than that, he wonders why, when he’d had her in his grasps, he was unable to slap on the restraints and bring her in.

Misplaced was a great 5 star read, I was pulled in right from the beginning.
We start with Meda waking up on the beach, the only thing she can remember is her name. We then jump ahead two months. She has discovered the past couple of months that she has certain skills that others may not understand. Meda also discovers that she can heal people. She surrounds herself with some great characters that want to help people right along with her. I really liked Kako.
Will Meda get her memory back and find out who she is?
Overall I really enjoyed this read. There is so much in this story, you won’t want to stop reading until your done. We get mystery, romance, action and so much more. We also end with a lead into the next book. This is a great fantasy read and I look forward to the next book in the series. I also enjoyed the historical notes after the story.
Running In Snow: A Holiday Novella by Renee Regent
Running In Snow: A Holiday Novella by Renee Regent was a light romantic holiday read. I lost myself in this short collection and read it in one sitting. Noelle and Eve were amazing characters. I loved Noelle’s story the most and how she overcame her holiday trauma. It was such a sweet read. I enjoyed how despite her issues with Christmas, she pushed through for love. That story had a happy ending that had me bubbling over with joy. I really enjoyed this book and loved that it took me away from some personal holiday craziness. I highly recommend it!
Found in the Lost is the first book in Tarina Deaton’s Leonidas Corporation series. I had read her Combat Heart series so I thought that I knew what to expect and she absolutely did live up to my expectations and gave us an action packed romantic read that pulls you in from page one with the suspicious man at the airport followed by an attempted attack by bandits….
It is a fast paced read that takes you the long forgotten Mayan ruins for a hunt for long lost treasures. It also gives us Kinley who is on her first archaeological dig and the former Navy SEAL Shane who happens to be wondering round in Guatemalan jungle and who happens to be in the right place right time or … wrong place right time … it gives us friendly banter, camaraderie and the deep bond that Shane has with his friends and team. So if you like suspenseful adventure stories with some romance peppered through it then this book is for you AND I promise you that you will finish it in one sitting! I wonder what comes OR who comes next …
This was such a great book! Ava Ruiz is a perfectionist. She is an attorney who regularly works 16 hour days 6 days a week. She has worked hard to get where she is and constantly has to prove herself in a world where women are generally at a disadvantage. She makes one little mistake at work and is forced into a (much needed but not wanted) vacation. She is in Maui going stir crazy wanting to check on things at work and decides to drive into town to pick up a laptop. On the way a crazy stray chicken runs her off the road. That’s when she meets the hot as hell beach bum Ford. Ava forgets all about work and decides to take Ford up on his invitation to meet up later that day. And so the vacation fling begins!
What happens in Maui stays in Maui…until it doesn’t! While you will fall in love with Ava and Ford while they are in Maui, just wait until you get to the twists and turns that have them face to face again in the real world! This is an emotionally charged, super fun, super hot read that will make you jealous as can be! I definitely found a new book boyfriend in Ford! I recommend this 5-star read! It’s one you’ll want to read over and over again!

The Crown of Stones: Magic-Bourne by C.L. Schneider is the final instalment in this amazing trilogy. You do need to have read the other books first as the story follows on.
This book was an absolutely brilliant conclusion to what has been an amazing series. For most of the way through I really couldn’t decide how I thought it might end and that kept me on the edge of my seat!
By the time I started this book I was so emotionally invested in the characters and their lives. At time’s I was a wreck through this story and yet I loved every minute of it.
The author has created such an amazing world this series is definitely worth reading. Everyone should pick up book 1 today!!
Burning Greed by Diane M. Dickson
I have to admit that this is way out of my comfort zone. I don’t really go for murder mysteries but I have to admit that this book was an on your edge of your seat page turner. I like how the author draws out the drama and has the reader glued to the book as you want to see who done it. I also have to admit that I appreciated the fact that it wasn’t an obvious outcome.
I found that I felt as though I was right alongside the detectives as they investigated the case. I also found that I could relate to DI Tayna Miller. I also found it very interesting and unique how the author wove the family drama into the book and how it added to the suspense. I found that there was a really good mix of emotions playing in this book and a lot of drama with underlying drama. This made this book a good read. I do look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
Lost In Carmel
By Terri Lee
Natalie Hampton had it all. Movies, Magazines, and Hollywood. Until she lost it all, to gossip mixed with envy. Searching for friends was far and away. She needed someone on her side. When she had to leave behind everything, to find peace. She makes the best move she could think of. Can she find the peace she is looking for? Who will come to her rescue, and calm her sea of life.
Terri Lee has written this page turning story. A real look into the life of a star, behind what we see in magazines and movies. It may look like fun and fantasy. Do we really know what Natalie Hamptons really going through? This story is an eye opener, filled with tears. I love the characters in this book. Mostly the friends who stand behind Natalie. Well done Terri Lee! I want more though, looking forward to reading more from you.
Misplaced by Mara Gan a four-star read that you won’t want to misplace. This is number two in the Joined series and I would recommend you read them in order as you do get the most of it them that way. This has been a solid fantasy romance series, and the author does a great job of keeping you hooked. Meda is strong and stubborn, but strong for others and always willing to put herself out for others anything to help and heal them. As you go through the story and find who is Meda? You will enjoy discovering her story and finding her grow into herself. I don’t want to reveal anything about what happens as you do need t read the story to find out the glorious details of this story.
