The Devil’s Shadow by T. Birmingham – Review by Krystal Gaston

The Devil's Shadow (Wild Beasts Series Book 4)The Devil’s Shadow by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story is everything I thought it would be and more. The Devil’s Shadow by T. Birmingham is book four in the Wild Beast Series. Kieran and Ginny are the main characters and they are great, you want things to work and end well for them. All the characters in this series are well thought out and each play their own part. The lore and whole story line are unique and pull you in from the beginning and you keep wanting more as the story progresses.

Rebel Hearts (The Immortal Kindred Series Book 2) by Clara Winter – Review by Caralee Loonat

Rebel Heart (The Immortal Kindred Series #2)Rebel Heart by Clara Winter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rebel Heart By Clara Winter
5 Stars!!!!!

I was very excited to read this second book in the Immortal Kindred series and I can say that I wasn’t
disappointed. I found that this book was a very good follow up to the first. I really found that the author’s
writing style really keeps the reader glued to the pages and eager to see what will happen next.

I really loved the chance to get to know Annie better. I found that the backstory really helped put a few pieces in place and was just the right fit to the first. I loved getting to know Annie and how she came to be who she was and how she came to become part of the family with Millie and Alexandre. The best part was getting to see how Thayer and Annie found one another and how they were meant to be. I found it really interesting to get to know Thayer as well with part of his past. I really was quite intrigued by the sort of cliffhanger ending and look forward to the third book in this series.

Bound by Via Mari – Review by Shannon Fowler

Bound (The Torzial Affair Book 2)Bound by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book 2 in the Torzial Affair series. Jenny and Brian are back right where book one left off and things get steamier, secondary characters get sneakier, and everyone’s trust gets tested.

We all know Jenny suffered at the hands of Ty. Now that Ty is dead you would think that Jenny’s life would be a little easier, but no, apparently the police seem to think that Jenny has killed Ty and Mari has to throw in a few more twists to test both Jenny and Brain.

I liked this book better than the first and can’t wait to see where book 3 takes us!

Surviving Grace by Virginia Wine – Review by Kerry Baker

Surviving Grace: Book Five ( Surviving Series)Surviving Grace: Book Five by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace by Virginia Wine is the fifth book in the Surviving series. This book cannot be read as a stand-alone, it does need to be read in order.
This novella is the last one in the series and what a way to end. I absolutely loved the poetry in the book and the emotional depth that it brought to the whole story. You were instantly immersed in the characters and their story.
Grace is one of those characters you are just drawn to. I wanted to read more about her and I wanted her to find her way.
This has been such a great series overall. I have enjoyed every moment, this book being no exception. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone.

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series Book 2) by Bea Stevens – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series #2)Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stepping It Up is book two in the Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. Even though this is the first book I have read by this author, and I have missed book one, I have read nothing but good feedback on this series, and knew I would enjoy it regardless of what order I read the books.

Libby is a reporter with a sassy, quirky outlook on life. She feels a bit isolated in her new job, and is having trouble connecting with colleagues and superiors. This story shines a light on so many dilemmas, starting a new job, trying to make a good impression on the bosses, finding love, and so much more. I had many moments of laughter, frustration on behalf of Libby, contentment, astonishment. I was constantly impressed, speechless and out of breath. Never did the author give me a moment without something dramatic to read. A never ending plethora of pleasure. 4 stars.

There Be Demons (Andor Demon Wars #1) by M.K. Theodoratus – Review by Chantelle Smith

There Be DemonsThere Be Demons by M.K. Theodoratus
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There be Demons Book 1 in the Andor Demon Wars Series is my first read from author M.K Theodoratus. This author has created a brilliantly fast paced, action packed read of the journey of four teens that discover and get out into a world where demons actually exist.
These characters are individual, strong characters that are relatable and enjoyable and brings even more depth to this fantasy read.

This book was a mentally visual read that as I was reading along I could picture the whole story in my mind as if I was really there. I was left on the edge of my seat numerous times and kept turning the pages to find out more! It had a great mixture of magic, mystery, danger and so much more which made this a brilliant first read from this author.

After this read, I’m sure M.K Theodoratus will become a go to author. I can’t wait to see what else is to happen in this new series, and will look forward to more.

Surviving Grace (Surviving Series Book 5) by Virginia Wine – Review by Karyn Taylor

Surviving Grace: Book Five ( Surviving Series)Surviving Grace: Book Five by Virginia Wine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace is the 5th and final installment in the Surviving series by Virginia Wine. This final installment is not a full length novel whereas the first 4 are. Also, whereas the first 4 books can be read as a stand-alone, you need to read the 4th book, Hard As Steel before reading this novella. As this is such a fantastic series, I would recommend reading all 5 books, preferably in order as characters reoccur in subsequent books. If you read them out of order there would be spoilers.
We are first introduced to Grace in Hard As Steel (Steel and Nichole’s story), where she has been the victim of a sadistic abuser. Through therapy and her love of writing, Grace is slowly coming to terms with the years of abuse that she suffered. She is however still very mentally fragile.
We are also introduced to Will in Hard as Steel. He is the vain, cocky, player, immature brother of Nichole. He is exactly the type of man who Grace should avoid, but as circumstances mean that she is living with Nichole and Will, she can hardly avoid him. However, as they spend more and more time together, Grace starts to see a different side of Will that no one has seen before. Deep down, he is a very caring, gentle man who will do anything to help Grace overcome the demons from her past.
I also loved that we got to see a little insight into each of the couples from the previous books. What I didn’t like is that this series has come to an end. This series has had me gripped from the very beginning right through to the end. It is certainly a series that I will revisit and read again.

Caught in Make-Believe (book 3 in the Caught Series) by Sharleen Scott – Review by Birna Bjornsdottir

Caught in Make-Believe (The Caught Series Book 3)Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished reading Caught in Make-Believe by Sharleen Scott (book 3 in the Caught series).

Samantha Dylan and Jace Colton have so much chemistry together, right from the start!
It almost leaps out from the pages!

I previously read the first 2 books in this series and I loved both of them.

Here is something that I wrote in my review of the second book :
“Although I was fully smitten and infatuated with Clay and Harlie – I have got to say that Tallie and Tom are now my new favorite couple (at least until the next book, haha).”

Well… Here I am, admitting that this third installment in this series has again, taken me to new heights!

Samantha and Jace have indeed become my new favorite – and this book had so many moments where I was trying to guess the end but I really didn’t see or anticipate where this book ended up taking me! What a wild ride!

Each book, was better than the last! How? I honestly don’t know as I thought the first 2 books were epic!

Sharleen Scott is an author that you should definitely subscribe to and look for.

Easiest 5 stars I’ve ever given!

Seraphina’s Awakening (The Seraphina Series Book 1) by Sheena Hutchinson – Review by Erica Fish

Seraphina's Awakening (Seraphina, #1)Seraphina’s Awakening by Sheena Hutchinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Seraphina’s Awakening is the first book in the Seraphina series by Sheena Hutchinson. I do not like to admit to this, but I read the second and third book in this series. Ms. Hutchinson did such amazing job in creating her characters. Seraphina stays true throughout the series. The story has mystery, fantasy, drama, and romance. Once I started to read the story, I fell in love with the scenery all over again. Seraphina is learning about herself. Seraphina has so much going on that she is trying to understand. Nathaniel is another character that will grab your attention. Overall, the story will grab you and take you away to Seraphina and Nathaniel’s world and you will not want to leave.

The Billionaire and the Therapist (Clean Billionaire Romance Reads Book 1) by Kim Koby – Review by Bobbi Wagner

The Billionaire and the Therapist (Clean Billionaire Romance Reads, #1)The Billionaire and the Therapist by Kim Koby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a sweet romance story about second chances and learning to start life over again. I enjoyed how the author made me feel part of the story. The characters are true to life and connectable. I could easily see them as friends. They took me on an emotional roller coaster that kept me turning pages and hoping they would find their HEA as well as healing. Natalie and John pulled at my heartstrings and made me smile at the same time. I highly recommend this book.
