Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Sara Oxton

Rogue Wave (The Inland Seas #2)Rogue Wave by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rogue Wave by Gwyn McNamee a five-star read that will leave you out to sea. This is number two in the Inland Sea series and they just get better with each reading, this built on the characters and story, making it a stronger and more developed story. Cutter and Valentina are just so powerful together, they have such a great chemistry it sets the page aflame. But there is a slowness to the burn, its not a quick burn and out, it burns slow and strong just like the best fires. Gwyn McNamee always brings a good story, but this one brought the waves as well.

OF WAR AND TATERS by Ashley Chappell – Review by Sara Oxton

Of War and TatersOf War and Taters by Ashley Chappell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Of War and Taters by Ashley Chappell a fun filled four-star read. I didn’t know what to expect with this story when I read the title, but just like we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, I shouldn’t judge a book by its title. This was so funny I spat tea over myself, this story has a little something for everyone, its witty and funny with a sarcastic brush that just keeps it from getting soppy. If you like a mystery or a funny story then you cant go wrong with this story.

Shameless (The Orphan Train Saga Book 2) by Sherry A. Burton – Review by Sara Oxton

Shameless (The Orphan Train Saga Book 2)Shameless by Sherry A. Burton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shameless by Sherry A. Burton a four-star read that will take you back. This is the second story in the Orphan Train Saga and the story and characters may be fictional they history behind it is real, it was something I had never heard of before starting this series but the more I look into it, the more it surprises me with its depth of history. I would definitely recommend you read the saga in order as the story does progress through. We get to hear more about Tobias in this story, from his hard start, to even harder journey. It will break your heart reading about his struggles. But the author does a great job of sucking it in and giving you a positive side as well, even in all the darkness.

Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1)Discovery by Sherry A. Burton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Discovery by Sherry A. Burton a four-star read that will take you back. This is the first story in the Orphan Train Saga and the story and characters may be fictional they history behind it is real, it was something I had never heard of before and will definitely be looking into it. Cindy Moore takes us along side her as she uncovers Melita’s truths and history that will surprise you and make your heart swell as you read. This will make you smile at times when you read some of the stories and then bring a tear to your eyes another when it reminds you of another part of your own history, the author brings you into the story and makes you remember your history while delving into others.

A Divided Mind by M. Billiter – Review by Sara Oxton

A Divided MindA Divided Mind by M. Billiter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Divided Mind by Mary Billiter a dividing four-star read. This is a very well-done story on Mental Health the author has done it so well it really is true to life, you will feel for the characters and really get sucked into the story. I would have given this five-stars, but I found it a little confusing due to the POV’s, just as I was getting into one it changed. Tara was a good character but weirdly I enjoyed the chapters from her POV more than her as a person. Branson and Aaron just made me care and really feel them, the pain they felt was so palpable you could almost taste it. The family dynamics were hard to read at times, but overall very well done.

Truck Stopped (Satan’s Devils MC #11) by Manda Mellett – Review by Sara Oxton

Truck StoppedTruck Stopped by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Truck Stopped by Manda Mellett a five-star read that will make your engine roar. This is number eleven in the Satan Devils MC series and it’s my favourite of the series so far. Truck and Allie have an emotional story to tell, and Manda Mellett does a great job showing us those emotions and getting them onto the page so well, you can feel them in your heart as you read the words. It’s a beautiful journey they take us on, but not beautiful in the traditional sense, beautiful in the way that the words are created and beautiful for the fight the show, Beauty in the tears you will shed while reading and beauty in the smiles that will grace your face as you read.

Claimed (The Torzial Affair Book 3) by Via Mari – Review by Sara Oxton

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Claimed by Via Mari a four-star read that you will want to claim as your own. This is number three in the Torzial Affair series and this one picks up after the last so I would advise you to read them all, if you don’t you will only want to go back and read them. The suspense and danger in this story as so real and compelling, along side some great characters in Brian and Jenny. The whole drama in the danger they face and weather they will come out the other side or not, just adds another level to the story. The ending was amazing, the beginning was good, it just lacked a little in the middle that let it down a touch.

The Traitor (An Underground Bad Boys Romance Book 2) by India Kells – Review by Sara Oxo

The Traitor, An Underground Bad Boys SeriesThe Traitor, An Underground Bad Boys Series by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Traitor by India Kells a five-star read that you will adore. Secrets will be revealed in this story and people will surprise you, on occasions some make you want to kiss them and in others they make you want to hurt them. I enjoyed the Debt Collector, but I adored the Traitor, as the characters just seem more real, and more determined. Spenser Knox and Josie Baird will just make you have a need to turn the next page quicker than the last, Josie in particular just made me care for her strength and envy her self-determination. I must say a special mention to Gage, he just had a special sparkle.

Guilty Pleasures Volume 3: Guilty Pleasures by Joyce McCarthy – Review by Sara Oxton

Guilty Pleasures Volume 3Guilty Pleasures Volume 3 by Joyce McCarthy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Guilty Pleasures Volume Three by Joyce McCarthy a steamy four-star read. This is a collection of fifteen steamy and saucy reads. They are short and sweet, but they really get your engine revving. Brad and his many, many encounters that will just keep your eyes a popping. There really is something for everyone in this story, they are short and sweet in the right way, sweet like a giant ripe peach ready to be plucked.

Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Sara Oxton

Rule BreakerRule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander a five-star read is not for the faint of heart. I adore this author and she never lets me down, her stories are always filled with passion and drama and some humour throw in as well, but there is also a sublime plot running through that just gets you. Office romance isn’t one I usually enjoy, it’s a little too close to my current role and its so far away from my day to day that I don’t enjoy, but this time I really did. I must say that above all else this one tugged at more than just my heart strings, there is something special about this whole story and you would be sorry to miss Athena, Warren and Ramsey.
