The Rise of House Valdis (House Valdis Book 1) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Sara Oxton

The Rise of House Valdis (House Valdis #1)The Rise of House Valdis by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Rise of House of Valdis by Naomi Valkyrie a five-star read that will rise above. This is the first novel in the House of Valdis series, and I can’t wait for more. This was a great story and so well written that I was surprised to discover that it was a debut novel. The story unfolds and is told from multiple points of view and this is great as it gives you a greater background to the story, a greater perspective to get more of the story. There are a couple of small parts that I was a little lost at, but when I realised it was a debut that made it clear then how this was, I just re-read a couple of paragraphs and it made more sense. The characters are unique and interesting and they have a great depth to them, I am so excited to get my hands on number two.

A Sun So Bright (Reigning Hearts Book Three) by KG Fletcher – Review by Sara Oxton

A Sun So Bright (Reigning Hearts, #3)A Sun So Bright by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Sun so Bright by KG Fletcher a five-star read that will set your heart aflame. This is number three in the Reigning Hearts series and they can be read as stand-alone, I will admit I have read them in order and loved them all, I was worried about this one as Fiona was someone we met previously and I didn’t like her then. I am so glad I didn’t let that put me off as awwww I had a total change of heart about her, it just goes to show that love can make you see life differently. This was a great fake boyfriend story and I have read a few and was getting a little overdone but KG Fletcher has done it well, they have done it real well. Chris was a great character and one who built and developed more than just an old property.

REBOUND (REWIND BOOK 4) By Rowan Shaw – Review by Sara Oxton

Rebound (Rewind #4)Rebound by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebound by Rowan Shaw a feisty four-star read. This is number four in the Rewind series and it can be read a stand-alone, but I have read it as a series and enjoyed it as so, if you don’t want to read the whole series then it is advised that you read Return first as you may miss important details if you don’t. This is an interesting and challenging story and Noah has a journey to go on through this story and what a story it is, this is an emotional, gripping story and one you need to read.

THE RUNAROUND: A Single Dad Romantic Comedy (CAROLINA CONNECTIONS BOOK 6) By SYLVIE STEWART – Review by Sara Oxton

The Runaround (Carolina Connections #6)The Runaround by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Runaround by Sylvie Stewart a flirty four-star read. This is number six in the Carolina Connections series and they can be read as stand-alone but honestly they are so much fun I would advise to read them in order as they do build form each other and they show us the talent that Sylvie Stewart has as a writer. Ari you have a drive that not many would, that made me smile so much, and she just made me feel like I had some get up and go just reading her story. Jax is a confusing character but when you read his story you start to see why. This was a great story, about timing issues and also worry about others, and overthinking, we all have these in our lives and I think that’s why you will be able to identify with something in this story and that will make this a great read for anyone.

Ink’s Devil (Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #5) by Manda Mellett – Review by Sara Oxton

Ink's Devil: Satan's Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #5Ink’s Devil: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #5 by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ink’s Devil by Manda Mellett a five-star read that will blow you away. This is number five in the Satan Devil’s MC (Colorado Chapter) and they just go from strength to strength, they could be read as stand-alone but honestly, I have loved them as a series. Beth and Ink are amazing characters, they have a story that you need to read and devour. Manda Mellett is a great storyteller, and this is a story that you need in your life, they bring new characters into the story that I cant wait to hear more from. If you are looking for a twisty turn emotional roller-coaster of a story, then you need this story in your life.

BELOVED (21st Century Courtesan, #3)BELOVED by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beloved by Pamela DuMond a four-star read that will be your beloved. This is number three in the 21st Century Courtesan series and I would recommend you read them as a series in order as you will get the best out of them that way, it’s a good strong series and tells a very good story. Evie is a great character and one that you won’t want to miss, her story and how she helps people will keep you hooked. Evie will give you all the feels, in more ways that you can imagine.

Second Chance (The Flowers in December Trilogy, book 3) by Jane Suen – Review by Sara Oxton

Second Chance (Flowers in December #3)Second Chance by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Second Chance by Jane Suen a five-star read that will bring flowers to your life. This is the third and concluding novel in the Flowers in December Trilogy, they could maybe be read as stand-alone, but I have read them as a series and so enjoyed them that way, as this is like the cake topper, its so lovely on its own, but as a whole it just brings the whole thing up. The emotions you will see in this story are so strong that they are palpable, you can almost taste the emotion. This is a compelling story and shows us what a truly amazing writer Jane Suen is.

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Sara Oxton

The Fat Girl's Guide to Loving Your BodyThe Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery a positive five-star read. I have enjoyed several of this authors works and always found them to be body positive but this just brought it to the next level, we get to hear the author tell us about their own story, and if like me you struggle with your weight, it just adds an extra voice to the one in your head, and to me that extra voice is a welcome one as its being nice for a change. I enjoyed the style of writing as its not your typical in this type, there is a lightness, freshness and something extra as well. I have read this from cover to cover and devoured it, but I am sure I will be dipping in and out as its filled with messages that you can take day by day as well as information, journals and story’s about how to love yourself no matter who you are or what your size.

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Sara Oxton

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3)Lillie by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lillie by Mya O’Malley a thrilling four-star read. This is number three in the Maggie Trilogy and follows on from Maggie and Naomi so I would strongly recommend you read them in order to get the most out of the story. The flow is strong between all of the stories and the author does an impressive job of keeping it all together, I am assuming they either have very comprehensive notes or an amazing memory as the details have been kept strong and don’t let the story down at all. Naomi is a great character and one that will surprise you with her story, this is a great trilogy, but it does let itself down a tiny bit in places. But that is just my opinion and I would still recommend you check the series out, as I have had some great enjoyment out of this.

Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by Sara Oxton

Journeys Through SpaceTimeJourneys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Journeys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman a journey of a five-star read. This is number one in the Journeys Through series and shows great promise for the series. The fact that this is a debut novel shows in one or two tiny parts, but honestly, I could not believe it. I have been known to get into many a debate about the multiverse theory and usually avoid stories about it as they all follow the same type and we just get the one line, but I am glad I took the chance on this one as it had a great fresh perspective and made me start a whole debate about ideas from this story. Normally I cannot do that as I read a lot of romance and science nerds do not enjoy debating that, but this was great we started on one point and I brought in so many more. Much like the story it was deep and complex, and I found myself arguing over people just to get my point across, I explained it in different ways as the characters were so complex, they gave you strength from reading them. After we had our discussion we sat and talked and they all asked what book I had read as it must have been good to get me so impassioned, I explained that it was one I took a chance on and I hope many more people will. I did try to get them to give it a go, but they admitted that between the four of them they read one book last year last year. Hears hoping next year they raise the total to include this one.
