Carrie Pulkinen has a way of creating vibrant worlds that draw the reader in. I could not put this book down. The story of Allison and Logan was really exciting and a joy to read. The book included some mystry and excitement as well as love. Allison and Logan found each other and although the journey to their love had some drama, I was happy that they were able to get together. I definitely look forward to the next installment of this series.

By Carrie Pulkinen
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Third Time’s a Ghost (Haunted Ever After Book 3) by Carrie Pulkinen. It is a story that pulled me in and didn’t let me go until the final page. I loved the characters of Gage Dawson and Erica Miller. They are well-developed characters that I enjoyed. I loved the bantering back and forth between all of the characters. The author does an amazing job of making the storyline and the characters come alive. This is a comedy with a ghostly plot. I enjoyed that characters from other books in the series are in this one as well. This story had me laughing and turning pages to find out what happens next. Don’t miss out on the next exciting and entertaining book in this series. I highly recommend reading it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this fun paranormal romance enjoyable and engaging with great characters and an intriguing storyline. Psychic Medium Allison Gray is scared of ghosts following a traumatic incident in her past. Unfortunately Empath Logan Mitchell is being haunted by a ghost who is making him crazy. Logan’s psychic gift of reading people’s emotions has helped him in the business world however, his gift along with being haunted means that Logan has given up on having a normal life. Then he meets Allison and if only she could overcome her fear of ghosts and especially the one haunting Logan then she could be the one to help him. This story is a romance with a paranormal twist. I loved Allison and Logan and found myself immersed in their story. The chemistry between the characters really came across in the narrative and led to some steamy scenes. The story flowed well making it an easy read and the plot kept me hooked from start to finish. I look forward to reading future books in this new series by Carrie Pulkinen.

Third Time’s a Ghost: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance by Carrie Pulkinen is the third book in the Haunted Ever After series. This is a highly entertaining, fantastically written series the just keeps getting better and better.
I loved the two main characters in this book. I felt like they had such a strong connection right from the word go. This could be because they started as friends or it could just be that they had that instant connection. You could really feel the chemistry between them.
The story was brilliant as always. It is always so exciting to read one of this authors books because it is not only fun and amusing but it has a depth to it that I don’t think you normally get from books like this. I was drawn into this story and could not put the book down until I had finished it. Another amazing book by this incredible author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love at First Haunt: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance by Carrie Pulkinen is the first book in the Haunted Ever After series. I was excited to grab this new series by Pulkinen. She always has a lighthearted but fun, romantic story on my TBR pile. This story did not disappoint. Set in Detroit we are introduced to psychic Allison. She is recovering from a bad run-in with a ghost and not much better luck in the dating department. Is the ghost at Logan’s going to change all of that? The characters are fun to read and there is a HEA. This was a fantastic read to get away from the world and relax. I am looking forward to where the series will go and what other ghostly problems will occur.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book read by this author, and it will not be my last. Love at First Haunt: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance (Haunted Ever After Book 1) has a cute, simple plot line. This is a fun, paranormal, romance story that is very intriguing to say the least. The story grabbed my attention from the very beginning. Allison Gray is an intelligent, talented, medium, who uses her gifts to help others. Not long after she was hurt by a former boyfriend, a ghost hunt goes wrong. She has sworn off from any more ghost busting jobs with her team. She leads a quiet boring, safe life, working with her gifts, out of an office in an antique shop. Her best friend invites her to tag along to a party hosted by new in town Logan Mitchell. Logan Mitchell is like her in so many ways, one is he is not looking for a relationship. He just wants to live a normal life. He has bought a house that turns out to be haunted. As things progress with this ghost, he decides to call in help to rid his house of this hostile ghost. The team he calls upon, asks Allison for help. Will she be able to help the ghost crossover? Will his life return to normal? This was a very enjoyable start to the series. So eager to read the next book!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Straight off we are launched into the sucky situation of Allison (our main protagonist) having to attend a party for a rich and powerful someone who recently brought the massive mansion the party is taking place in, from her friend Tina. Allison doesn’t like the parties, mainly for the vapid and money-hungry guests but also because she can feel all emotions and she knows just how fake all the people around her are.
If I’m being entirely honest – and this is nothing against Pulkinen because I have read some of her other stuff and I have always found it witty and relatable – but I really struggled with this book, especially the whole empath thing. I get that it is a fantasy and I’m all for that, but to say that a room full of people only had money and sex on their minds just is daft. Even people who like all the swanky stuff and a good roll in the hay, have more on their minds than that, and I thought that a character who is a supernatural being like an empath would be aware of this and understand this. By all means, say that she couldn’t stand the party because all the emotions were just too much, but to say that everyone in there wasn’t worth her time except for Logan felt a little harsh. Anywho just my personal opinion, moving swiftly on.
While at this party she locks eyes with Logan, the hunky handsome bit of man that, in spite of his seemingly knee-deep-in-willing-women lifestyle is sad and lonely and Allison senses this, and instantly runs away from it. After being hurt and spurned before she doesn’t want to go through that hurt again so a relationship is just not an option, especially with someone like Logan, who can dip and dash with the best of them.
Whilst making her Cinderella-esque escape (minus the dance with prince charming and the loss of a slipper) she happens upon a crying woman and tries to comfort her. It is only after the woman disappears and she is flooded with overwhelming emotions that she realises that she has seen a ghost. After several turns and twists of fate, Allison and Logan find themselves drawn together against either of their better judgments, their connection and spark undeniable. I will say that I thought their relationship happened a little quickly, but then again I think that of most romances that are similar to this, and considering that this is a book about ghosts and empaths, I don’t think I should nit-pick about the speed of their relationship being unbelievable.
I will say though that Pulkinen has a way of writing characters that makes them feel down-to-earth and relatable. Apart from my earlier issues with the whole party-thing, I found the characters likable and funny. Pulkinen really does do funny well and I really liked how she handled mental health in this. She managed to do it respectfully and with care, without losing the light-heartedness that made the book such a joy to read. I really do recommend Pulkinen and if you like this then you will definitely like License to Bite, that book is funny and steamy and just a delight to read.

Desperately Seeking Sixty Nine (The Green Room Chronicles, Book One) AUDIO BOOK by J.D. Frettier – Review by Victoria Mashburn

Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine (The Green Room Chronicles #1)Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine by J.D. Frettier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Never judge a book by its length. This audiobook may have been the shortest one that I’ve ever listened to, but it ranks as one of my top favorites. It has steam, hijinks and adventure in what is an amazing depiction of what happens ‘after’. I cannot wait to pick up the next book in the series. If you are a fan of the hippie movement and want to see a flower child stumble through what seems to be an amazing afterlife, grab this book, put on your headphones, and settle in!

A Hole (Alpha Bet Guys Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Melissa Agena

A Hole (Alpha Bet Guys Book 1)A Hole by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a cute little novella! A Hole is the first book in the Alpha Bet Guys series by Phoebe Alexander. 78 pages of laughter and love. Ace is an up and coming comedian whose career is just starting to take off. Ella is this curvy bank teller that doesn’t know what to think when it comes to Ace. Her friends are trying to dissuade her from giving Ace a chance. What do you think she will do and do you think Ace will back down? This book is full of great comedy and great characters. I was a bit skeptical at first but as I started reading I found myself not being able to put the book down! I read this so quickly and wanted to read more. I can’t wait for the next book in the series! I would recommend this book to anyone!
