Tompkin’s School: For The Extraordinarily Talented (A Supernatural Academy Trilogy Book 1) by Tabi Slick – Review by Sara Oxton

Tompkin's School For The Extraordinarily Talented (Supernatural Trilogy #1)Tompkin’s School For The Extraordinarily Talented by Tabi Slick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tomkins School for the Extraordinarily Talented by Tabi Slick a talented four-star read. This is number one in the Supernatural Academy trilogy and I am excited to sink into the rest of the trilogy, I am so excited for number two, I need to see what happens next. The world building and character development was very well done and even though they were out there they were believable and made you need to know more about the characters, especially Izara and Kain, they reminded me of when curiosity caught the cat, and I know that’s not exactly what I mean to say, but honestly it’s the closest I can come up with without giving the game away. Bring on the rest of the series as I need more academy in my life, I would have given this five-stars but there was a couple of points that just made me stop.

The Divided Twin (The Divided Series Book 2) by M. Billiter with Kyle Thomas – Review by Sara Oxton

The Divided TwinThe Divided Twin by M. Billiter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Divided Twin a four-star read that will keep you thrilled. This is number two in the Divided series and they could be read as stand-alone if needed but honestly I would advise you read them in order as they are all the same family and you get the depth then. I really, really loved this story and I only knocked it down as I got so confused when reading the POV of the brothers, it was just a little much for me as I kept getting mixed up, but that was me it could be covid brain as I seem to have so much on it, I lose my place easily. So, don’t let that put you off if you can usually keep up give it a go. What I will say is wow this author has done the mental health aspect so well, I loved that about this series, I normally get so angry as people don’t deal well they either gloss over, or just demonise people with major mental health issues, it was an emotional reward reading about these characters and finally getting to know the other side of what happens, I loved that.

Being Lost (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Sara Oxton

Being Lost (Satan's Devils MC San Diego #1)Being Lost by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Being Lost by Manda Mellett a five-star read that will find you. This is number one in the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego series and what a start to this amazing series I can’t wait to hear more from this chapter as they have come through the flames and are now rising from the ashes. Normally I’m not one to picture the person on the cover as the character I am reading about, but this was so close I couldn’t help myself, I normally like to imagine my own mental picture as I read, but yummy what a silver fox Lost is. It was so nice seeing an slightly older couple as the main characters, they like the chapter have come through the fire and are making the most of the life they have, even if its not what the want or need just yet. These characters are just sublime, and once again show what a great writer Manda Mellett really is, I have yet to find a story that I haven’t devoured.

REBECCA STEELE FINDING A DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES BOOK 2) by JOANNE PATTERSON – Review by Sara Oxton

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream (Rebecca Steele Series #2)Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson a dreamy five-star read. This is number two in the Rebecca Steele series but they can all be read as stand-alone as I haven’t read number one and don’t feel like I’ve missed anything, but I do plan on going back and checking Chasing the dream as I enjoyed the style. This was one of those stories that will show you aspects of life that you don’t see, inspire us to take a chance. There are so many wonderful characters in this story, Becky herself obviously but secondary characters who brought the story alive. I also loved how the romance was sweet and honest, it added something to the story.

Wrapped Up In You by Erin Bevan – Review by Sara Oxton

Wrapped Up In YouWrapped Up In You by Erin Bevan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wrapped up in You by Erin Bevan a five-star read that you will get wrapped up into. I hadn’t read the synopsis of this one, so it was a wonderful winter surprise for me, this was so sweet and even though it’s a holiday read, it can be read at any time of the year especially if you need a sweet pick me up. The character names in this are crazy and will make you chuckle, and they are all so easy to relate to even if you have nothing in common. This will bring the magic to your life, there is something special about it, it transports you to a magical time. Logan made me smile with his quirks and memory issues, the whole will he be chosen just added to the overall drama of this story, and what a story.

Love Comes In The Mourning by Erin Bevan – Review by Sara Oxton

Love Comes in the MourningLove Comes in the Mourning by Erin Bevan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love Comes in the Mourning by Erin Bevan a sweet and powerful four-star read. This is one of those stories that will surprise you as just when you think you know where the characters are going they take a turn and change things up, but in a great way, this is one of those stories that show us how we each deal with things differently and how that’s okay. Lesley was a great character and one that you will feel and support from the first page, she is such a compelling character. I enjoyed the slow burn element of the story, but It did go off the boil at times and I wondered what was happening but then it started to warm and it warmed my heart no end.

Irresistible Weddings (Irresistible Romance Book 4) Anthology – Review by Sara Oxton

IRRESISTIBLE WEDDINGS (Irresistible Romance Book 4)IRRESISTIBLE WEDDINGS by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Irresistible Weddings plenty of reads worth celebrating. This has some great authors telling us some fantastic stories, of the eight authors I didn’t find one that I didn’t enjoy. I enjoyed that they all had a different twist, sometimes in an anthology you get a couple that may be similar, but I didn’t find that here, it was refreshing and fun to read. I must say a special mention to Tamara Ferguson as I adored her previous work so this was just like a cherry on top for me. Jen Talty with The Right Groom and Stephanie Queen with Playing with the Bridesmaid also rated highly with me, but there wasn’t a story I didn’t enjoy.

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay – Review by Sara Oxton

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5)Martimus by Seelie Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Martimus by Seelie Kay a five-star read that will keep you hooked. This is number five in the Feisty Lawyers series and I would say you can read this one as stand-alone, but the whole series is sublime, they all just keep you on the edge of your seat. This one has plenty of romance, but also plenty of drama and suspense, and the best thing is it just wraps everything up into this amazing story that will hook you in. I enjoyed how you are sucked so deeply into the story you will feel like you are part of the investigation, you will be wondering what is going on with these women, you will feel like you are one of the amazing characters unfolding this dramatic story. If you haven’t picked up this author before do it, as you wont be disappointed.

Golden Void (Black Blade Book 3) by Alexander Charalambides – Review by Sara Oxton

Golden VoidGolden Void by Alexander Charalambides
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Golden Void by Alexander Charalambides a fantastic five-star read. This is number three in the Black Blade series and they can be read as stand-alone but honestly, I have enjoyed them all as they have recurring characters who build each of the stories. Megan has a great story and one that unfolds from the first chapter, as you follow her quest you get dragged deeper into the story. One that brings characters you don’t expect and twists that will keep you hooked. This is a young adult story that brings lots of different elements to it and doesn’t dumb it down like some young adult stories. All of the quests bring something different and this one just brings the extra.

Dead Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles, Book 3) by India Kells – Review by Sara Oxton

Dead Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles #3)Dead Magic by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dead Magic by India Kells a five-star read that will bring magic alive. This is number three in the Sanctuary Chronicles, but they can be read as stand-alone, but you will want to read them all once you start. This story has great pace, you won’t be able to put it down, you have to know what will happen. Violet and Finn both have a battle and history they face, hearing from both of them helps you understand where they come from. Helps you understand and get deeper with the story, the chemistry in this story is sublime and will keep you aflame, but it’s the romance that really made the story.
