The Gauntlet: The Soppranaturale Series by Ashley Pagano – Review by Sara Oxton

The Gauntlet: The Soppranaturale SeriesThe Gauntlet: The Soppranaturale Series by Ashley Pagano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Gauntlet by Ashley Pagano a five-star read that will stay with you. This is one of those paranormal thrillers that will astound you, it is filled with characters that will surprise you at every turn. There was a great flow to this story, Ommily and Link are great characters but I also loved how the Hotel Soppranaturale was a character all of its own the secrets, and I kept wondering if I had found all of those secrets out as I was reading. I cant wait to read more from Ashley Pagano as she shows us real talent with the writing.

Scarlet Fever (A Johnny Delarosa Thriller Book 1) by David Stever – Review by Sara Oxton

Scarlet Fever: A Crime ThrillerScarlet Fever: A Crime Thriller by David Stever
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Scarlet Fever by David Stever a four-star read that will set you a on fire. This is my first read by this author, but it wont be my last, I always enjoy a good crime thriller and this was good, it has a darkness that you don’t often see now, it harks back to when I used to read the noir thrillers that got me hooked on reading. Jonny Delarosa is such a good character; he is the epitome of the private investigator. Throw in the mega hot redhead and you have the fixings for a great story and David Stever puts all of those fixings together and create a great story.

The Fish that Climbed a Tree by Kevin Ansbro – Review by Sara Oxton

The Fish That Climbed a TreeThe Fish That Climbed a Tree by Kevin Ansbro
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Fish that Climbed the Tree by Kevin Ansbro a four-star read that will stay with you. I have finished this one, but I know I haven’t stopped thinking about it. This one will stop you in your tracks and will suck you in from the start, its very complex and has a lot and I mean a lot going on but it works and will surprise you. It is an odd one as its dark but there is a lightness as well, this really is a novel of different sides, good, bad and evil. I will definitely be looking out for more from this author.

Jumping the Shark (Paranormal Talent Agency, #5) by Heather Silvio – Review by Sara Oxton

Jumping the Shark (Paranormal Talent Agency Book 5)Jumping the Shark by Heather Silvio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jumping the Shark by Heather Silvio a five-star read you won’t want to jump over. This is number five in the Paranormal Agency series and I would definitely recommend reading the others in order before this one, as it builds to Barbara’s story, we get to see what strings she was pulling, we finally get to pick up on all of the little Easter eggs in previous stories about her power and plans and little nuggets about her, we finally get to see the real character. This really is a great series and this story in particular lets follow the path you finally get to real story, It may be about an election in Las Vegas, but its about so much more.

Moves by John Michaels – Review by Sara Oxton

MovesMoves by John Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Moves by John Michaels a four-star read that will put the moves on. This is a totally new author to me, I will admit I was entranced by the cover, I know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this one intrigued me, there is a lot going on it looked almost like a puzzle in itself, so I figured why not give it a try and it didn’t disappoint. Robert Jake will make you feel his everything, he is such a well written character that he makes the story, there were a couple of points that didn’t ring with me so I gave it a four, but I am not sure with another reading if this will be re-starred. I have put it on my re-read pile so who knows.

Kingdom of War (Kingdom Journals Volume 4) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Sara Oxton

Kingdom of WarKingdom of War by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kingdom of War by Tricia Copeland a four-star read that will excite you. This is number four in the Kingdom Journals and I would say that you don’t have to have read the previous stories as the author does a great job of filling in the past and heling you understand the story, as I haven’t read the first three and didn’t feel like I missed much. Hunter is a great character and he holds the story and just makes you feel desperate to know what happens next. Tricia Copeland has a great talent of bringing the world to life, she creates characters that are exciting and unique.

Murder Creek by Jane Suen – Review by Sara Oxton

Murder CreekMurder Creek by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder Creek by Jane Suen a five-star read that is worth solving. This is my favourite of this author, there was just something special about it, it really takes you into the story, it gives you the brain itch, you need to figure it out alongside Eve. Eve was a surprise, she was almost like a dog with a bone at times, but it meant that her passion flew from the page. I must say don’t start this one when you don’t have time as you wont want to put it down, Jane Suen has a great way of pulling you in and making you care, Eve feels so well done.

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love (To Love a Sportsman Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes – Review by Sara Oxton

Bowled (To Love a Sportsman Book 1)Bowled by Pamela Q. Fernandes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bowled by Pamela Q. Fernandes a five-star read that should be a six. This is number one in the To love a sports man series and I can’t wait for more. This was such a great story, I loved the fact that it was about Cricket, something I secretly adore (and not just for the cute white outfits). Mathew Anderson wasn’t always someone I liked, but when I got to know the real him, not just the façade he shows us just how special he is. The second chance romance in this story is believable and honest, it shows us how beautiful life can be when we need it to be, it also shows us life isn’t always perfect and sometimes it needs a good shake. Rose was full of surprises for me, she made me feel a lot more than I imagined she would.

The Brass Compass: A Novel by Ellen Butler – Review by Sara Oxton

The Brass CompassThe Brass Compass by Ellen Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Brass Compass by Ellen Butler a four-star read that will help you find true north. I am not usually a fan of historical stories, but this one intrigued me. Lily Saint James is such a complex character, she makes the novel for me, if she wasn’t so well written then this wouldn’t be such a good story. Lily has a great flow, you watch as she goes from bored young woman to a major undercover player, the spying interspersed with a love story just adds a much needed lightness to the story, if there wasn’t the love story it could be too dark otherwise.

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Sara Oxton

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)Wayward by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wayward by Via Mari a four-star read that will make you feel the dance. This is the first in the Billionaire Bodyguards series, and it shows promise of being another sublime series from this author. If you read the Prestian series you may see a couple of people popping up, but you don’t need to have read that one before you read this. Sasha Koslov is a complex character, I struggled with her at times as she was so complex, but once I got to know her, she really shined. Her relationship with Jay was equally as complex, but that is a different story all together. There is a great build in this story, and you will be turning the pages quicker and quicker, just to see what happens next. Bring on number two, I can’t wait.
