Behind the beauty is heartache… unless their love can save them.
Neve Hall has always admired the good works of the civil servants who brought prosperity back to the Nation. She especially respects the Sufferers—empaths who, with the help of technology, anonymously bear others’ troubles for them. But when her assigned empath is abruptly retired, she uncovers certain secrets. Like the identity of her new Sufferer, Micah Ward… and the fact that behind his kind smile is a life filled with loneliness and pain.
The closer Neve grows to Micah, the more desperate she becomes to protect him from a cruel and gruesome fate. But in a world where only a few are allowed the luxury of love, saving Micah comes with a price: Neve must choose between her loyalty to the Nation or her heart—a decision that will take them both on a race for their freedom, and their lives.

When Amanda was a child, her father traveled frequently for business, always bringing her back a book as a present. Whether she was getting lost in the pages of a tale about far-away knights, girls with supernatural powers, or kindly giants, she was quickly hooked on stories.

Over the years, Amanda has followed her own yellow brick road of reading and writing, and although her adventures haven’t involved sword fights or saving the planet from certain annihilation, they have involved jobs in scholarly publishing and marketing, a modest amount of travel, and a lifelong love of novels.

Amanda holds degrees in English from Salve Regina University and Boston College. She lives in southern New Hampshire with her family and a precocious pet poodle named Snickers.

Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy? by Gaia B. Amman – Review by Emily Walsh

Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy?Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy?
By: Gaia B. Amman
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy? by Gaia B. Amman was an hooking, engaging, detailed driven read that me hooked from start to finish.

Not my first read from this author, so I knew going in I was in for something interesting, unique and well written. I was not disappointed. This book wasn’t like anything I have read before, and frankly I’m a little wordless in regards of what to write, to structured this review.

My head is all messy, and my heart a little crushed, yet full. This book was written in gray. There was no clear good or evil, making this sci-fi fantasy have an alarming realistic quality, it reflected how the world actually works, making is otherworldly read, relatable and connecting. The attention to detail was outstanding, and you can feel the passion that Gaia brings in mixing her bio background with her fresh original writing abilities. All of this is brought to life by well crafted multi layered characters, and an equally complex and engrossing plot.

This book is high quality and worth your time, energy, and money. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get lost and absorbed in this gem of a read.

Happy Reading

Cursoi are a military order gifted with supernatural skills, devoted to protect the life of the president of the United Terrestrial Democracy. Naira resents them almost as much as she despises newly elected president Crash, an arrogant, hateful bigot. When Naira discovers herself Cursoi, she turns her dismay into a new resolution: infiltrate the Cursoi and undermine the president, but is Crash the real issue?

Things complicate since Naira falls for fellow soldier Drama, whose skill is empathy. Before Drama can uncover Naira’s ploy and deliver her to Lethal, the entitled Cursoi whose skill is crushing people’s organs, the unthinkable happens. Naira and Lethal “link” now sharing each other’s consciousness. Naira’s secrets are uncovered…but so are Lethal’s. The two archenemies will have to find some common ground if they want to save their own lives…and the president’s.

Funny, sexy, and fast-paced, this addictive novel reminds us that we cannot fight anger with anger. It’s time to sit back and take a cathartic trip to the United Terrestrial Democracy

(warning: a couple of “open-door bedroom” scenes)

Born to Fight (Can’t Resist You, #1) by Brittany Anne – Review by Emily Walsh

Born to Fight (Can't Resist You, #1)Born to Fight
ByBrittany Anne
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Born to Fight (Can’t Resist You, #1) by Brittany Anne was a raw, too real, feels gripping, post-apocalyptic read, that had me hooked from start to finish.

Wow what a read! My first read by this author and I am impressed, more than impressed I just found a treasure and I need more. This sci-fi dystopian read is unique, original and it is hooking. The tone, and writing rhythm has a oomph that instantly pulls you into the story. It’s been awhile since a dystopian has hooked me like this, and it has rekindled a lost love that I didn’t know was gone.

Told in multi POV we get this tale from both our MC’s, and seeing it that way, especially this type of romance, really adds na extra layer of realism, and gets you more connected to this characters. There is a weird magic about it, and frankly I believe that all romance no matter what genre should be told in dual POV. It’s proven in the way this story was executed.

Now outside of the love plot the world building was pretty freaking cool. It paints a devastating picture of what could happen if we lose our insta world connecting, electricity and satellites. It makes you feel the dread, and adds a very dark and gritty element, making the love plot that much more raw and compelling.

Overall this book is a must read, it has everything you’ve been wanting in a, or better yet it has everything you didn’t know you wanted in a post-apocalyptic romance, that may be doomed before it even starts. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that you will not be able to put this book down once you start.

Happy Reading

Embrace the Passion (Pets in Space 3) by Various Authors – Review by Emily Walsh

Embrace the Passion (Pets in Space Anthologies, #3)Embrace the Passion
By: Various Authors
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Embrace the Passion (Pets In Space Anthologies #3) by various authors had the same uniqueness, fun/danger and otherworldly characters as the last installment.

I always love a good anthology, and I’ve been waiting for this one. As I read the last one, and loved every bit of it. The only thing with anthologies is that there are so many authors and stories, it’s hard to writing a review as a whole. So I’m not going to break down every stories, cause we would be here forever. But I will tell of the one I loved the most, and that was actually the first story. HEART OF THE CAT (Sarafin Warriors Series) By S.E. Smith.

The opening to this story was gripping from the first words. It was heart pounding and it instantly puts you on edge. It started like a prolog, before jumping to the “present”. The fast pace stayed the same and we are greeted with new characters that I soon came quiet attached to. The love story is sweet, the writing was solid and compelling, and my only complaint is that it was too short. It was a fantastic opener for this wicket collection. The other stories that follow are just as, or more entertaining and engaging. I haven’t managed to get through them all yet, but this anthology is well worth your time and energy.

I love the worlds that these authors have created, and even though they are all different, I felt like they were somehow all connected in that vase thing called space.

This book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval

Happy Reading.

Must Remember (Solum Series #1) by Colleen S. Myers – Review By Chantelle Smith

Must Remember (Solum, #1)Must Remember by Colleen S. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Must remember is Book one in the Solum series from author Colleen S. Myers.
This book has literally held me captivated since the first page and held me there until the very end. I was not expecting to be drawn into the action, suspense and mystery quite so early on in this read but it made everything more heightened while reading it.

Elizabeth ‘Beta’ is introduced straight away and we are thrown into her world – one that not only becomes a mystery to her, but to us as well. We follow her on the journey of ups & downs. The mystery surrounding her own existence on this unknown planet. She becomes a mystery to everyone – and they try anything to figure out why and how she got there and of course the biggest suspense of them all why she was wearing enemies clothing.

This author has created an incredibly vivid, mentally visual read. I couldn’t help but picture the whole planet in my mind while reading it, the look and descriptions of each individual character that Beta comes into contact with. All of it makes for an incredible sci-fi, alien romance novel filled with action, adventure, mystery, suspense, romance and most important an incredible plot.

Each character that Beta interacts with, comes across to you as the reader in different ways. Each of them making their own impressions on Beta and the way acts around them, but you can’t help but love Finn & Marin and of course Ute, but each of these characters has their own story to be told and I loved reading their interactions, feelings and ideas of why Beta is there. Along with the brilliant connections, we cannot forget the magic that is weaved through the story and the history of it.
I loved that we were learning all things along with Beta, it made everything seem more real, and as though we were there living out the story ourselves.

Overall this was an incredible read that I loved that I got the chance to read, and cannot wait to delve into this world again in Book 2 – to see what continues with Beta’s story.
