Dead Keen (Things Unseen #2)Dead Keen by Anise Eden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was so excited to start this book, Dead Keen is book 2 in the Things Unseen series, because I really enjoyed book 1. Neve and Con got into even more shenanigans in book 2. In the process of helping Ciara, cons younger brothers wife, with her mental illness and phantom pain that stems from her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Max. Neve ends up stowing away in Cons car when he tries to question Max, which makes him look incredibly guilty, they end up being left to die in a cave, and are arrested, and taken to jail. I also really enjoyed the sweet, wholesome relationship that is still developing between Neve and Con. They care about each other so much but have fun with each other and the snark level was adorable. I would definitely recommend anyone who enjoys a good thriller with some romance undercurrent to give this novel a try. They don’t have to be read in order to understand the plot but it would help with understanding the characters, their motivations, and relationships. I loved it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t lie, this was a hard one for me. At first anyways. I am part of my local fire department as an EMR and all the medical stuff just felt very real. I cried every time I read 3 sentences at about 17% of the book. I didn’t know if I could get past it. But I pushed past it and I ended up really enjoying the storyline and the complexity of the characters. I laughed as well as cried, rejoiced with the wins and got angry when the sinister plans came to light. I will be reading more and I highly recommend!

Ritual Obsession: Blood Obsession by RL Dunn – Review by Shavon Brown

Ritual Obsession (Blood Obsession Book 1)Ritual Obsession by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I am going to start this review with a few warnings:

Warning 1: There is a very detailed scene of Sexual Assault in this book. It happens to the character named Bobbi. It is very hard to read as she is raped.

Warning 2: This is a very good book, but it ends on a major cliffhanger and nothing has been resolved. We know who did it, but there is a great chance he could get away with it, Someone is in the hospital fighting for there life.

With those warnings in mind for future or almost readers. Truth is I could not put this book down, it was definitely a page turner.

Rose the veteran detective and Rose the new detective to the precinct get partnered together but that is not all. A string of murders of working girls gets the whole precinct involved including Detective Commander Marco, who is an old flame of Detective Rose.

Honestly, IMO this book plays out like an episode of Matlock. Where you have all the pieces as the reader or viewer but you are waiting for the detectives to put everything together. They do get there but by the time they do it seems a little to late.

Their is drama for our drama lovers as we have multiple office romances including, Marco & Rose, Bobbi & Max and Rose & Brian.

Like I said in my warning. This book does end on some major cliffhangers so if you want the conclusion to the story you will need to pick up book 2 and keep your fingers crossed.

Right from the beginning I knew I was going to really like these books! Melodie is a fun, loving, character. The London stage is set perfectly. And two opposites fall in love unexpectedly. While she is trying to get him his ex-back mind you. What a fun romp! The second book, The Wedding is romantic, sexy, and hilarious! The characters are a good deal of fun. I see this playing out in my mind like a movie. These two stories are my first introduction to Laura Rossi. Her writing style is charismatic and entertaining. I’ll be looking to read more for sure!

What a way to kick of a new series! I was hooked from beginning to end. I love mafia romance, and this was the perfect example of that genre! Action, tension, angst, romance!

Sinful Daughter (Dark Mafia Sins Book 1) by Emily Bowie – Review by Dr. Anya Schultz

Sinful DaughterSinful Daughter by Emily Bowie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This mafia romance had me feeling so many things!! This is my first Emily Bowie book and I learned that she is a great writer. This is a story about how a mafia princess secretly falls in love with an enemy. The book takes you through the ups and downs and difficulty love can bring when it is forbidden. Throughout the book, my emotions went on a roller coaster from anger to curiosity to steamy to heartache and to love. I literally was oohing, aahhing, smiling, and crying throughout. The way she uses description had me in the mix of this mafia family. She made it suspenseful, surprising, a happy ending that didn’t come easily, and left me wanting to read the rest of her series!! It was one of those books that when I went to bed last night I dreamt about the book because I was sad it was over!

Sons of Sindicato (Sons of Sindicato #0)Sons of Sindicato by Cam Johns
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was passionate, thrilling and had me on the edge of my seat. Braelynn Shaw is an ambitious, lawyer who works hard and plays harder! She is the very definition of Bold and Beautiful! When Seth was introduced, I knew right then this novella was going to be exciting. Seth can only be described as a hot headed, stubborn, and full of passion. I loved watching these characters protect each other with everything in them and go to the mat time and time again for their relationship, despite the challenges they are facing. This is a great start to a Mafia Romance Series; I can only guess how good the next books will be!

Try Right (Aloha Series book 3) by Jill Brashear – Review by Heather Stanley

Try RightTry Right by Jill Brashear
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a good book that I read it in one sitting. Loved the relationship between Henry and Claudia and that they just engrossed you in their story! This book was filled with adventure, romance, some secrets and perhaps finding something you weren’t originally looking for. This was my first read by Jill Brashear and will definitely read her books again in the future! This can definitely be read as a standalone book; I was able to follow everything without reading the first two of this series. I do wish the characters were a little more relatable with their careers, but their wishes and dreams can be applicable for anyone. Would 100% recommend!

Corporate ChristmasCorporate Christmas by Bernadette Marie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I first discovered this author 5 years ago when I read the first Walker series book. So when I saw this one I had to buy it and read it. The author did NOT disappoint, this story is absolutely captivating, Chloe is a strong and independent female who knows her worth. Jason is a good guy with a good heart and a strong sense of trying to do the right thing. I love Byron who I just wanted to call grandpa and hug on him. I wanted to wrap my hands around William and found myself quite often cussing him out. The other secondary characters added even more to the story and I’m hoping there will be secondary books that have Tyler, Gwendolyn and the rest of the crew. The authors writing style flows so incredibly smooth, she connects the characters, and the readers to the characters. There were hysterical moments that made me laugh out loud (just remember stapler), parts that made me scream, and even parts that brought tears to my eyes. This was the perfect book to bring in the New Year with and I enjoyed it tremendously. if you enjoy a good clean romance book that is driven by real romance, laughter, a happily ever after, and just a little office politics you should get your copy today! I promise this author will bring immense joy to you.

I have read a couple of books from this author and she still continues to blow my mind on her storytelling. This is the second book of the New Orleans Nocturnal series. You don’t need to read the books in order but there are previous characters in this story as well. I love a good paranormal book but this author exceeded all my expectations on this book. I was so excited when I got this book I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. I couldn’t put it down until the end. It only took me a few hours to devour this addictive story.

Grumbler’s Ride: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #2 by Manda Mellett. This author gets me every single time. I think I’ll be a fan of hers forever honestly because ever time I get to read a new book I think it’s my new favorite. Each book gets better and sometimes that can be hard as an author but without fail this author blows me away every time. The characters in this story truly captured a piece of my heart and loved getting lost with them for a while. It’s so easy to read these books in one sitting simply because I have the hardest time putting it down. The storyline is well written and paced nicely. The characters are complex, relatable and well developed. They simply pull you in and you won’t want to leave. I know I sure didn’t want to. Five stars all the way and highly recommended! I simply recommend every single book this author has! Can’t wait for more!

Hawks Cry
Satan’s Devils MC
Second Generation #2
By Manda Mellett
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Heartache, suspense and Love is the storyline for this book. This is for adults only due to violence and contents.

This is Olivia and Eli (Hawk) story. Liv and Eli have been friends from birth. Yes birth! As many times they were together. First in childhood, then those teenage years. Now in marriage, followed by the growing family. But something is not right. Something is eating at Eli, making him make unwanted choices. Losing his brothers, his family in blood and his MC. Now the struggle is on him, and he has taken his Liv with him. She will follow her husband and best friend to the ends of the earth. No Spoilers!

Manda Mellett has done it again. I have loved each and every book leading up to this one. I have followed her characters as well. But this book broke my heart in the beginning! Manda Mellett literally takes you to this MC, you feel like you are there. Watching what is going down, and you can’t do a thing about it. Get out the tissues, wine and chocolate you’re going to need them. Oh and don’t plan on setting this book down any time soon. Enjoy the works Manda Mellett! I can’t wait to see where the next book goes.
