Untamable by Jamie Schlosser – Review by Jenni Bishop

UntamableUntamable by Jamie Schlosser
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Untamable by Jamie Schlosser is a standalone book and is a romantic comedy. I laughed and cried throughout the entire story that was highly entertaining. It was fun with lots of humour that kept you enthralled and not wanting it to stop. Jamie did a great job of writing the characters that seem so real, honest, charming and witty.

What Emery finds when he takes on his next project is nothing at all what he was expecting, in many ways. He wonders if he has bitten off more than he can chew when coming face to face with the problem.

Estelle needs help, there is no denying it and there is apparently only one man capable of taking on her problem.

Will Emery be able to assist the lovely Estelle and take care of her problem? Will he see more than the woman that needs help? Will Emery see more to this woman than meets the eye?

This is a sweet and hilarious read that you do not want to miss. Jamie is a very clever writer that has found the right mix. I look forward to her next book.

Stone Sober (Hawke Family Series Book 3) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Krystal Gaston

Stone Sober (Hawke Family #3)Stone Sober by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Stone Sober is Gwyn McNamee’s third book in her series The Hawke Family. The first book in the series is Savage Collision, followed by Tortured Skye. You meet the other Hawke siblings in those stories and then you get to Stone. He like control and hes intense like the rest of the Hawke men, but hes being pulled in 2 directions. His family or his boss, who has also been like a father figure to him. Then there is Dani’s baby sister, Nora, who makes her entrance in Savage Collision. This story like the others pulls you right in from the beginning. You meet sides of characters that you have been anxious to get to know. And the chemistry between Stone and Nora is out of control. Nora is a difficult character, no one really knows why she dances and why she left the pre med program at school. But Stone, he infuriates her and can read her better then anyone, and it drives her nuts! I loved this series so far and I can’t wait for book 4 Building Storm to come out.

Common Ground: Kayla and Taylor’s Story by Alice Rachel – Review by Bobbi Wagner

Common Ground: Kayla and Taylor's StoryCommon Ground: Kayla and Taylor’s Story by Alice Rachel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Common Ground: Kayla and Taylor’s Story by Alice Rachel is part of her Underground series. This is a series that can be read as a standalone but you will get to see characters from other books in this series in each story. One of the things I love most about this author is that she creates stories that are in different perspectives of the characters. I love how she can pull me into this underground world of different laws and where status makes a difference. Her characters are creative, connectable and true to life. They will take you on a roller coaster ride of various emotions from laughter to anger. In this installment of her Underground series is Kayla and Taylor’s story. Taylor and Kayla are neighbors that never expected to fall for each other. Taylor’s life is all that easy for him. His sister is about to get married. Kayla has not had the best of relationships in the past, she was determined to not fall in love with Taylor. She was done putting up with men’s stuff but when other forces step in will she have more to be concerned about then falling in love? Then you have Karen, Taylor’s sister who doesn’t want to get married to the man her father chose for her. Her problem is that she is more attracted to women then men. What will happen when her fiance is determined to marry her no matter what? There is three stories going on in one with this book. They are all linked together in one or another and each of their lives have other forces that could change them. These are some strong characters, they are feisty and they are not afraid to break rules. They bring attraction, passion and heat to this story. I loved that we get to see what their lives where life before we met them in other books. They will pull at your heart strings but you won’t want to put this story down. I couldn’t put this book down and read from beginning to end in one sitting. I highly recommend this book as I know you will want to see what Taylor and Kayla’s story is. You don’t want to miss this one!

Trusting Him (Bromley Brothers Series #1) by Laura N. Andrews – Review by Ashleigh Harrington

Trusting Him (Bromley Brothers, #1)Trusting Him by Laura N. Andrews
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Trusting Him by Laura N Andrews was supposed to be a sweet romance between two males, but what I read only came off as forced and pretty flat and unbelievable at times. The Bromley brothers are made up of two gay brothers and one who is bisexual, but each of these men acted more like teenage girls than men who were looking for something more than a hook up. I don’t normally read allot of gay romance genre mostly because it seems that most authors don’t have a good grasp on the dynamics of a gay partnership. I would have liked to enjoy this story more but I just had a really difficult time getting into the story or believing that these scenarios are even believable in the least.

Fox’s Awakening (Enchanted Immortals #2) by F.G. Adams – Review by Jenni Bishop

Fox's Awakening (Enchanted Immortals #2)Fox’s Awakening by F.G. Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fox’s Awakening is the second book in the Enchanted Immortals series by F.G. Adams and is a paranormal romance it can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading Aldin’s Wish first to give you a better understanding of the story. This book is also full of paranormal creatures and continues where the first book left off and is just as fast paced.

Brenton is an FBI agent but also a Hunter, yet he is also much more, much more than he will ever know. Years earlier he was saved by someone he now calls family and friend. It is with that same friend that he now finds himself in the middle of something he does not fully understand. There is change coming, something within, is he crazy or could there be more?

Finally two become one and two become one once again. This has been foretold. Will it be enough to save the one your love, your beloved?

This book is action packed and full of the unknown. This is just as good a read as the first, I can not wait to read the next in the series.

Aldin’s Wish (Enchanted Immortals, #1) by F.G. Adams – Review by Jenni Bishop

Aldin's Wish (Enchanted Immortals, #1)Aldin’s Wish by F.G. Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aldin’s Wish is the first book in the Enchanted Immortals series by F.G. Adams and is a paranormal romance that is full of Vampires and Shifters and much more. I really enjoyed the fast paced storyline, the characters and the world that FG has created.

If you were asked what your greatest desires were, what would be the price you are willing to pay?

Aldin has lived his life protecting his family, one that will never know him, one that will never see him, one that he will never be able to have for himself. Even though he has it all, something is missing, he is merely existing. That is until he is called to ensure his family’s latest addition is safe.

Wren is a pediatrician and loves her work delivering babies but one night and she feels there is more to the shadows, her sixth sense has never let her down but right at this moment she has much more she needs to focus on.

The Enchanted Immortals have been waging a war against one of their own for many many centuries and now due to her curiosity Wren finds herself smack dab in the middle of it.

Will they be able to rescue her before all is lost? Will Wren face all that is now before her?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The BFD A Big Deal Romantic Comedy is book one in this series by by Harper Bentley is a romantic comedy that will have you laughing out loud but will also bring tears to your eyes. They way Harper wrote this book is unique in the way the story is told.

Our main characters are Calder Castleman and Rori Flannigan. Calder is the man, he is a big name in football and extremely popular. He is also one cocky and arrogant alpha and not ready to settle down.

Will Rori to take a chance and go out with him? Will she see the real him? Is Calder ready to put aside his plans and face his true desires?

This is the first book I have read by Harper and am interested in reading more of her books.

Nelumbo NuciferaNelumbo Nucifera by Cristina Slough
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nelumbo Nucifera by Cristina Slough is a psychological thriller. The story is well written and focuses on a delicate situation of domestic violence in the worst form and is a very emotional read. The story is told in different P.O.V.s which I like because you get to understand the characters and get inside their heads.

Gaby has been beaten and abused both physically and mentally by someone who is supposed to love and protect her. When it all becomes too much she decides if she doesn’t leave now she will die. When Gaby’s car is found burnt beyond recognition everyone is on the case to find out who killed her. After all their digging what they find is more than any of them realised.

What happened to Gaby? What will they find? What things do they find when they dig into her husband?

If you enjoyed movies like Sleeping With the Enemy and Safe Haven then you will enjoy this book.

Impact: Twisted Hearts Love Story by Autumn Sand – Review by Jenni Bishop

Impact: Twisted Hearts Love StoryImpact: Twisted Hearts Love Story by Autumn Sand
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Impact is the fourth book in the Twisted Hearts Love Story series by Autumn Sand which is a dark romance series. It can read as a standalone but should be read as part of a series. There are lots of twists and turns, pain and heartbreak, betrayal and love and because you are invested in the characters you feel every emotion as you follow them on their journey from the past to the future.

Finally we get to Manny’s story and it does not disappoint and I really enjoyed that it was written in his POV. Manny is a man that has been broken all his life that has been ripe with so much tragedy and betrayal it makes you wonder how he has survived. Sometimes I wanted to smack some sense into him and make he see what was happening right under his nose. Other times I just wanted to hold him and take away all his pain.

Is he ready to let go of the past and move on to a better future? Will he finally realise that the right one has been in front of him all his life? Will he learn to let those that truly love him, in?

I have really enjoyed reading this series and all characters and stories interconnect, which makes reading them much more intriguing and helps to connect you to the characters.
