Renegade (The Mercenaries Series Book 1) by Raven White was a super steamy read. This was a quick and steamy read. The story was good and the twist was interesting. Eliza was a spunky character read, I loved that she was not a whiny submissive character. Renegade was steam and alpha male energy from the first point of view.
Forbidden Love; Written by Lisa Jones Gentry, As Told by Joe Steele
Forbidden Love; Written by Lisa Jones Gentry, As Told by Joe Steele was a wonderfully written book. It was easy for me to fall into this story as Joe shared his biological parents’ story. Their love of God and the romance that developed between them was beautiful. I truly felt the emotion behind this story and felt it the entire time I was reading. I loved how the different scenes were organized and dated accordingly. It was easy to know where the story was taking place and also what year. I absolutely loved this book and I highly recommend it.
I have never read anything by the talented Raven White prior to seeing Renegade. However, when I saw this cover and read the blurb and a few teasers I knew I had to find out what story this book held. I am glad that I picked it up and will be checking out the rest of the series now as they come. I had a few things that were somewhat confusing while I read this book, but I found that the writing became more structured and easy to follow as the book wore on. This made me struggle with my rating and gave it a good solid four stars. I just would like to see a cleaner flow in the next book so I will keep an eye out for that one.
The storyline is fairly simple revolving around a friends to lovers/ love at first sight concept. It was predictable as far as romance novels go but I don’t think that was the true beauty in this one anyway. The scenes, world-building and the sexy swagger really made this book all it is. I found myself fanning my face several times as I read about the sexcapades our two main characters embark on. Whew! So expect that romance, heat, and kink, to be hot and spicy. Make sure that is your cup of tea before reading as well. I loved this factor, so for me it was not a problem. Like I said this is book one in the Mercenaries Series so there will be more and I’ll be right there for it ready to see what will happen next!
Forbidden Love is the kind of romance story everyone wishes they had. Told in the eyes of Joe, he recounts the story of his birth parents and how he came to be. Deeply touching, heartfelt and romantic, it’s a book you won’t want to put down! This book also does a good job of describing how the colored people were treated, while showing that we have improved as a society, there is plenty of room for improvement.
The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion (The Book of Eleanor 1) by Shannon Nemechek. When I read the blurb I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect but I knew I was interested to see where this author was about to take me. And boy am I so very glad I opened this book up and stepped inside. Katie immediately drew me inside the story and I was ready for an adventure and this story gave me just that. I couldn’t put it down and I’ll be honest I wasn’t ready for it to end. The author’s writing style is smooth and detailed, I found myself forgetting I was only reading what was happening and not living it or watching it. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. Four stars and highly recommended.
This is a first time author for me. I was intrigued by this series. Alpha men and they are protectors….WHERE DO I SIGN UP? Double the fun! This is kind of an insta-love along with a friend little sister genre. I thought This really got better the further along it went. One of my problems were her injuries and the sex that came after the hospital release. It seemed unlikely that they would get together with her terrible injuries…OR that he would care for her welfare and wait Until she had recovered a bit before diving in. Their activities in the bedroom seem pretty rigorous and I kept saying Ow…Ow…Ow for her. I also would have thought the police would have been interviewing her after the first attempt as well but nothing.
The characters were sexy, strong and kept the tummy flutters were a fluttering. I liked Eliza’s attitude. Growing up with a hard headed brother gave her a heads up dealing with Sam. There is a large crew of mercenaries. They all have different and fun personalities. I enjoyed the bond they have with each other but I got tired of their “Copy That” response.
Overall this is a suspenseful sexy story. It has it’s good and not so good parts. With a bit more time and length to fully flesh out situations this would be superb. But as right now it’s a fun read.
The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion was a great 5 star read.and book one in the Book of Eleanor series.
I was pulled in right from the beginning. Katie is in Savannah enjoying a vacation, when she hears a story that intrigues her. She is determined to find the book. She ends up traveling back in time. This is where she meets Colm O’Donnell and things get more interesting from here.
Will Katie stay in the past or come back to the present time?
Overall, this was a great read. I really loved all of the characters. The authors writing pulls you right into the story and you feel like your there with them. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. 1-click and get started today.
The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion (The Book of Eleanor Book 1) by Shannon Nemechek
The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion (The Book of Eleanor Book 1) by Shannon Nemechek is full of Magic, romance, and time travel. I fell in love with it immediately. Katie is taking a break before beginning her new role and managing her PTSD. She stumbles on a story that is a huge part of the small Georgia town history that she us somehow tied to. I loved following her and learning of Colm and Eleanor. Each of these characters was amazing and realistic. I loved the Bits of history mixed into this fun story. It was an excellent read and I highly recommend it.
Master’s Rise: Book One (Phoenix Series)
By L. Ann Marie
5 out of 5 stars
The story Master’s Rise: Book One (Phoenix Series) by L. Ann Marie is a book that I enjoyed reading. It pulled me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the final page. I just couldn’t put it down. I loved reading about the characters of Cort and Seren. Cort is a man that had been lied to. He now finds himself dealing with what has happened in the past and also with the present. He also finds himself with a deep attraction to Seren. Seren is an intelligent, strong, independent, and beautiful woman. She is often underestimated and those who try to mess with her learn how strong she really is. She also has an attraction to Cort. They have chemistry. What does the future hold for Cort and Seren? The past haunts Cort. Will he be able to bring the Brotherhood back together? Read this book to find out. Seren and Cort are characters that I found myself rooting for. This book does have some romantic moments that make the temperature in the room rise. There are many additional characters that are introduced that I enjoyed reading about. This is the first book in a series, and I believe that the author has done an amazing job with both the storyline and the characters. I can’t wait for the next book.
This is my first book by this author and I can’t wait to read more from her. This is one of my favorite types of books, MC and hot, steamy romance. I was pulled into this book from the very start and kept engaged until the end. This is a fast page turner that is well develped with characters that make the story feel realistic. Colt has lost faith in his MC Brothers but not anything else he was taught. Seren is about to find out the most important lessons he learned. I highly recommend their story.
