My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this and thought the story was excellent! This is the third book in a series and I’m hoping to eventually get to the first two at some point. I’m really into westerns right now and I loved the western setting. It was a cute love story with some twists and unexpected obstacles thrown at her, but she handled it well! I highly recommend for anyone looking for romance and who’s into westerns!

Born in Darkness (Mafia Elite Book 3) by Amy McKinley – Review by Dr. Anya Schultz

Born in Darkness (Mafia Elite, #3)Born in Darkness by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As usual, the author produced another romantic dark drama within the mafia families. This book is about Emiliana (Em), one of the mafia’s princesses. In the previous book, we learn a lot of Em and how she was kidnapped, trafficked, but also eventually saved by Stefano – the secret love of her life. In this book, we dive deeper into Em’s story and the secret love she has had for Stefano, her entire life. Stefano feels the same as Em, but his father, an evil mob boss who holds her over his head in order to get what he wants. Throughout this book, the two of them build their romance, go public, and try to find a way to live happily ever after. I love the way the author puts a story down, makes it easy to read, and while getting details is also straight to the point. My most favorite aspect of this book however, is the bad ass women! While each of the mafia books are geared around a main female character, I thought this particular one showed a different side. You know, growing up in a mafia family, you have to have a hard shell, training, and vigilance. The women, especially Em, showed that while the husbands, boyfriends, and bosses are not to be messed with, well neither are their women!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the series. You can read alone but for everything to gone together, you need to read them all. It is very easy to read. There are ups and downs, twist and turns in this book, but that’s what makes it so good! Each character is amazing. The mafia women are the best!
Emiliana grows so much from the start to the end of this book. Stefano wants to be better than his family. The sparks between these two are crazy.

Blood Oath (Mafia Elite, book 2) by Amy McKinley
4 Stars!!!!

One of my favorite things if finding an author whom I enjoy and this is definitely one of those. I have read many books by this author and this is the second series I have read by her and I am not disappointed. I like how the characters are realistic and the stories are unique and refreshing. I am always on the edge of my seat wanting to see how things will unfold.

I like how there is always a bit of conflict in the characters life and how things are not predictable. I like how there is not always a direct path to the romance and drama added in. I also do like the underlying story that plays out and brings the characters together. I really find the author grabs the reader and keeps you wanting more. I will definitely be reading more from this author and this series.

The Sound of Silence Audio Book by Dakota Willink – Review by Caralee Loonat

The Sound of Silence (Leave Me Breathless World) by Dakota Willink
4 Stars!!!!

Wow and I do mean Wow! I love finding new authors and with this audio book I was not let down. I was really on the edge of my seat with this one. I really like the fact that there were three narrators. This just added depth and also a fullness to this audio book. I really found the authors style to be gripping and dark which just grabs the listener.

I really felt as though I was part of the drama as it unfolded in this book. The different voices helped to add depth and really highlighted the drama. The characters really came to life and I really enjoyed the feeling and different tones of the narrators. This made this a great listen and I will definitely read and listen to more from this author.

The Sound of Silence AUDIO BOOK by Dakota Willink – Review by Dr. Anya Schultz

Dakota Willink never ceases to amaze me with her storytelling. The Sound of Silence is a suspenseful, dark romance about a woman named Gia. Gia finally finds love to find out it is never the kind you want. She finds herself in a controlling, abusive relationship but in the end finds happiness. Reading of her struggles, courage, and perseverance really pulled at my heartstrings. While nothing to this severity, this reminded me of my own story. As a teenager, I found myself for 4 years, in an abusive, controlling relationship. I allowed this behavior because I thought I loved him and that he loved me. He would be a different person behind closed doors, but then find ways to weasel himself back into my heart every time. It wasn’t until I was 18 that I had had enough of feeling like I wasn’t worth anything. About a year later, I met an amazing man who I now call my husband. Like Derek (Gia’s saving grace), my husband was very patient with a girl who was broken. However, he saw something in me that I thought I had lost – a woman who deserved to be loved and cared for with respect. So, thank you Dakota Willink for writing this amazing story of survival – I truly believe that it gives hope to those individuals out there that are struggling with similar experiences, and hopeful it will also give them enough courage to find a different path because they are all worth it.  

Dark Bastard (Dark Sparrow Novel Book 5) by India Kells – Review by Amanda Kimble

Dark Bastard (Dark Sparrow, #5)Dark Bastard by India Kells

5/5 Stars

Dark Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel by India Kells

This is another great read by Kells. Dark Bastard was an amazing read and I can’t wait for the next one. It’s part of A Dark Sparrow Series, but can be read as a standalone.

Ellie is trying to live one day at a time, but being a 911 dispatcher is hard. Especially when she thinks she can save someone’s life. The quote I chose for Ellie is: “And you know nothing about me, Sam. And yet, you stopped that final jump because of me. We’re strangers who have lost their way yet found each other. I see honor in you, a protector of your brothers. You may have reached the end of your rope that night, but I believe your strength is still greater than your pain. I don’t care that I don’t know everything about you. I think that for the moment, staying alive is the only solution we have.”

Sam is feeling lost and ready to give up on life. He decides to call his brother only to get a wrong number. When he does hear the person’s voice it changes everything for him. The quote I chose for Sam is: “I couldn’t forget the sadness in your voice when you hung up on me. It’s the only reason I persisted. I want nothing from you, just the reassurance that you’re all right.”

Highly recommended for Romantic Suspense lovers.
