Sure As Hell (Life Is Hell Book 4) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Karen Pearman

Sure As Hell (Life is Hell #4)Sure As Hell by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is apparently the fourth book in a series of books by this author. I have not read and of the previous books or any books by this author until I picked up this one. I enjoyed this book, but I really do wish I had decided to read the previous books before diving into this one. I feel like now I need to go back and read all three of those and then re-read this one again. There were certain relationships in the book that I was unfamiliar with and feel like having read the previous books would have helped with that. I will say that this book made me laugh, cry, feel anger and sadness and felt very realistic. The writing was great, and the author did a great job with describing everything in depth. Towards the end of the story, I was on the edge of my seat to know the outcome with which I wasn’t disappointed. This is a great read and one that I would highly recommend you checking out. But make sure to read them in order of the series to get a better understanding of the characters and relationships.

My Sweet GI AUDIO BOOK by T.L Wainwright – Review by Bobbi Wagner

I enjoyed this WWII romance story.  This is my first audible by this author and narrator.  I enjoyed the tone of voice and how it would change a little with each character.  I found this to be easy to listen to which helped with my enjoyment.  This is a story about Teddy and Jenny.  When Teddy steps into the shop that Jenny works at, her life changes from that moment.  But war could be the end of a relationship before it really starts.  This was a sweet story and I truly enjoyed listening to it.  I highly recommend this audio.

Fake Fiancé (A Second Chance Office Romance) AUDIO BOOK by Amy McKinley – Review by Karen Pearman

This was my first audiobook ever. And I loved it. I have always been concerned about listening to a story and not being able to connect with the characters, but I found that is not the case. This is a phenomenal book from this author. I think she did a really great job drawing me into the story and keeping me interested in the characters and what would happen to them in the end. I found this story relatable and very funny with some mystery and romance mixed in. I really hope that she has at least one additional book planned for these characters because I feel there is so much more that can be written about them. Also, the narrator was phenomenal, and I thought did a perfect job with inflection and tone of voice throughout this reading. I feel like I could have listened forever that was how enjoyable it was.

Murder at Honeybee Lake (Shadow of a Doubt Book 2) by Jessica Aiken-Hall is a paranormal crime story.

The Luminara Series: Box Set – Volume 1 (Lussuria – L’amore – Lucca’s Lust) by SJ Molloy – Review by Lizzie Chapman Gough

The Luminara Series: Box Set Volume 1: Lussuria - L'amore -Lucca's LustThe Luminara Series: Box Set Volume 1: Lussuria – L’amore -Lucca’s Lust by S.J. Molloy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you like super descriptive books with instant romance plotlines and a trauma filled background then this book is right up your alley. I, however, found this series very difficult at times to get through and I did take some breaks and keep coming back to it. I understand that this is supposed to be a tale of romance and lust however I found some parts of Lexi and Lucca’s romance unrealistic and at times cringey. This is down to personal preference however, and some may enjoy this style of writing.

READY FOR FLYNN, PART 1 (READY FOR FLYNN SERIES) AUDIO BOOK by K.L. SHANDWICK – Review by Carly Vogler

Ready for Flynn by by K. L. Shandwick is an emotionally intense start to what is sure to be a great trilogy.

Valerie is a 15 year old girl who has lived as much of a sheltered life as you can have with three older brothers. When one brother brings home a friend for the holidays, everything changes.

We follow the two on a great journey of young love, raging hormones, and most importantly, growth. With such an age difference between the two, we really get to see how their choices affect the other person, and how they grow and change through time. When Valerie turns 18, are they able to try for a love of their own, or will his lifestyle turn out to be too much for her to handle?

Seductive Prey (Relentless #1) by Vivian Fiano – Review by Michelle Collier

My rate is 5 out of 5

Seductive Prey is the first book in the Relentless Series by Vivian Fiano. Jordan and Grant are such great characters because they are real. We have all met people like them that you just can’t help but love and root for them. She is strong and independent. He is brave and protective. The chemistry with these two might just catch the pages on fire. I got lost in the suspense of the story. This was my first book by Vivian Fiano but I promise it will not be my last!

Murder at Honeybee Lake (shadow of a doubt book 2) by Jessica Aiken-Hall – Reviwed by Laura-Jane Minnie

Murder at Honeybee Lake (Shadow of a Doubt, #2)Murder at Honeybee Lake by Jessica Aiken-Hall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great book, just as good as the first one. I could not put it down, I was intrigued from the start, there is so much raw emotion, I connected with it alot. If domestic violence is a trigger for you I would not recommend this book to you. Otherwise if you can get past that issue, it is a well written story about a murder that starts with lies and deceit.
