Embracing Jared (Thrill of the Chase, #3) by Anna Paige – Review by Angela Hayes

Embracing Jared (Thrill of the Chase, #3)Embracing Jared by Anna Paige
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

5 Stars

 

Embracing Jared is the third book in the Thrill of The Chase series by Anna Paige. It is a superb Rockstar romance, drama, chemistry, sparks, tension, brotherhood, family, and plenty of emotion.
As with the other two books in the series, it could be read as a standalone, but in doing that, I feel you would be doing yourself a disservice, as there is a lot of information and important details in the other books that would highly enhance your reading experience of this third instalment, as well as the series as a whole.
Again, the author has upped the ante and delivered a captivating story that enhances this fantastic series. It is Rockstar romance done right- with all the author’s clever touches and original take on the topic. I couldn’t have loved the characters, storyline and details any more than I did.
So, if you love Rockstar romance, contemporary romance, a captivating story, and endearing slightly flawed characters- then you really should do yourself a favour and grab yourself a copy of this book (and series) and fall in love with these wonderful characters, stories, and talented author.
This book has only reinforced the fact that I am addicted to the ‘Thrill of the Chase’ and am an Anna Paige junkie- I soooo can’t wait for my next fix!

Thank you, Anna Paige!

Strega – Magic: The Spirit Never Dies by Lynne Russell-Review by Lauren West

Strega - Magic: The Spirit Never DiesStrega – Magic: The Spirit Never Dies by Lynne Russell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book we are introduced to Annie. A strega or “witch” in Italian. She is aiming to become a doctor and with her loving fiancée by her side…only she isn’t sure that this doctor thing is her passion, and her fiancée turns out to not be that great as well.
Annie soon embarks on a journey to find her calling and her true self. It becomes a eye opening journey that is taken with Annie and the gifts she finds and the strength she gains speak to who she is as well as the connection to women generations before her.

This book was such a great read! Witches and powerful women all entwined in one. The way the story provided past and present combined with a vast family history made it all the more fascinating. This is a first read for me by this author but the way she tells stories I can guarantee its not the last.

Red’s Peril Part 2: The Prez’s Old Lady (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter #2) by Manda Mellett- Review by Lauren West

Red's Peril Part 2: The Prez's Old Lady (Satan's Devils MC Vegas #2)Red’s Peril Part 2: The Prez’s Old Lady by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought I loved book 1, but book 2 absolutely blew me a way! Red has made me want him to be my newest book boyfriend by far! This author makes her MC men flawless and irresistible, and each book only gets better. You can’t read just one book, and once you start you do not stop until its finished. Such a fan of hers!
In book 2 we get the story of Red and Cher. They have a past together, but most importantly they share something important that can’t be ignored. This is a tale of second chance love, and acceptance of the unknown. Red was a great guy, and he deserved a happy ending. Together Red and Cher’s story is emotional, steamy, and unforgettable.

A Sweet Christmas: A Sweet Confections Novella by Nicole Richards – Review by Megan Brasington

A Sweet ChristmasA Sweet Christmas by Nicole Richard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love books like this! A holiday love story where one is a baker and the other stumbles Into their shop and it’s almost love at first sight. Thea is a baker in Washington and Ben is a sports writer who almost instantly falls for each other. This book was spicier than I thought it would be and oh mama was it a good burn if you know what I mean. Wasn’t overdone and thought it was very tasteful. If you want a quick read to get you into the holiday mood I really recommend it.

The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price by C. L. Schneider – Review by Moriah Venable

Magic-Price (The Crown of Stones, #1)Magic-Price by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ian Troy, is a Shinree, a race that has an addiction to magic. To put an end to the long brutal war, Ian defies orders by his Queen and uses an ancient relic called the Crown of Stones which comes at a heavy price.

Years pass and Ian is still filled with regret while suppressing his urges with wine, he tries to leave the past behind. An encounter with an assassin brings him back to the fold when the realm becomes in danger again.

There is a race to control the Crown of Stone, and Ian becomes involved once more. It becomes more clear what Ian has to do: use the power he fears the most.

I went into this thinking it was going to be a slow start but it wasn’t slow at all. I really liked Ian’s character and was surprised when he went against orders and did something that had last effects, even a decade later and how he was still struggling not only with himself as a person but with the war and the consequences of his choice.

I am looking forward to reading the next novel in the series.

Drummer’s Beat (Satan’s Devils MC #2) AUDIO BOOK by Manda Mellett – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Drummer’s Beat by Manda Mellett
Narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister
Five Stars

This book is an awesome listen. This is the second book in the Satan’s Devils series. This is Drummer and Sam’s story. Drummer is the MC President and Sam is the headstrong lady on a mission to meet her father. This is what brought them together…
Sam is so strong and a great match for Drum. The MC storyline is dark and dangerous.
The narration was flawless. Sierra and Logan’s voices blended together and brought the characters to life. Just a great overall listen.

Born To Fall by Brittany Anne – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Born to Fall (Can't Resist You, #2)Born to Fall by Brittany Anne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first started out reading this book I was a little apprehensive. The first book was good but I didn’t much care for it. But holy cow!!! This author really knocked it out of the park with book two, I am throughly impressed. I feel like even though it’s about two different people in this book, it wrapped some things from the first book! You can see the passion she put into her pages so much that they stand out, they don’t fall flat and the world becomes much more fleshed out than the first book. I highly, highly suggest you read the first one before reading this one. It picks up where the first book left off. I’m really proud of how far this author has come!!!

Practically Pagan – An Alternative Guide to Magical Living by Maria DeBlassie – Review by Tamisha Janay

Practically Pagan - An Alternative Guide to Magical LivingPractically Pagan – An Alternative Guide to Magical Living by Maria DeBlassie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I am an avid reader. I picked this book because I wanted to learn about everyday ‘magic’ and how I could learn to bring more positivity into my life. I will say that the author definitely knows how to weave her own personal stories into life lessons for others. If you are looking for inspiration, a self-care guide, or are interested in learning more about the everyday wonders around you, this is one of the top ten books out there for that purpose. My three-star review is actually more of a 3.5 – while I enjoyed the bits and pieces of the book that spoke to me personally, I found it a bit lacking in the areas that I was hoping would explode off the page. There was history sprinkled in and some difficult subjects (for some), but that wasn’t what I was looking for or expecting when I decided to read. Just because it wasn’t necessarily for me doesn’t mean that it won’t be the perfect fit for someone else. Try for yourself and see – even if it’s not exactly what you were looking for, chances are there are some positive things you will take from it.

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J Berger Illustrator: KC Snider – Review by Ayla Eddy

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus?Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J. Berger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a coming of age story based around the concept of Santa. The author introduces a new way of approaching the subject on if there is a Santa Clause. The story is a cute experience between a mother and her son over the topic. She recruits him over into being a Dream Keeper. Which he takes to heart with his little brother. Keeping the magic alive for his younger sibling. I adore the new take on the holiday season. It is a book that I will be reading to my children when they begin to ask the same question.

Whatever Tomorrow Brings (Embrace Tomorrow #2)Whatever Tomorrow Brings by Amy Argent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This author just about killed me. All the emotional ups and downs still has me reeling days after I read this book.
I just love it when you need a good cry and a book helps you achieve it. This book did just that. I feel emotionally cleansed after this spectacular book.
After book one left us on a cliffhanger, the author game back with even better writing.
This is definitely an author I’m adding to my favorites. Dare I say this gave me Nicholas Spark feels
