You Can’t Hurry Love (A Cate’s Brothers Series book #5) by Lee Kilraine – Review by Ashleigh Harrington

You Can't Hurry Love (A Cates Brothers Book, #5)You Can’t Hurry Love by Lee Kilraine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You Can’t Hurry Love is the fifth installment in A Cate’s Brothers Series by Lee Kilraine. While this is the fifth book, it can be read as a stand alone and the story will be fine, but I am one who always says to read the series in order so all of the characters get their full spotlight. This installment focuses on Paxton and Jolene, two people who couldn’t be more opposite yet not one could be more perfect for either of these two. This story was such a page turner, that I ended up reading this in one sitting, foregoing sleep and activities to read this one. I actually bought all of the other books in this series just so I could reread all of the series for fun. Kilraine definitely has a new fan in me, I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. If you are looking for a great contemporary romance that while in a series can be read as a standalone than this is the book for you. But be prepared to fall into a book hole, as it is such a good read that putting it down is near impossible to do.

Sunburner (Moonburner Cycle, #2) by Claire Luana – Review by Jenni Bishop

Sunburner (Moonburner Cycle, #2)Sunburner by Claire Luana
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sunburner is the second book in the Moonburner Cycle by Claire Luana and the story continues on where we see the return of our favorite characters and new ones to boot. In this mythical fantasy book there is a bit of everything you could want, a lot of action, danger and mystery with a little romance thrown in as well.

Claire has woven great fantasy and created characters that are well developed and you feel as though you are going on this gripping journey with them in this magical world. The story is fast paced but you will not be able to read it fast enough because you keep wanting to know what will happen next.

Just when they thought they were free of war, they learn that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the hell that has been unleashed in their world. Will Moonburners and Sunburners be able to come together to fight the evil that is literally destroying their world? Will they find the key to saving everything and everyone they hold dear? Our heroine and her hero will do anything to save their people.

I enjoyed these books and highly recommend the Moonburner Cycle novels that will keep you engaged right the way through.

Beautifully written love story between a couple that was meant to be but didn’t have the right timing the first time around. The chemistry between them is undeniable and they can’t seem to get enough of each other, so when fate brings them back together, they can’t help but fall in love all over again. But with secrets they are both hiding, can they make it this time? Great book and great read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Seized by Obscurity (Evergreen Series #1) by Joann Herley
5 out of 5 stars
Ms. Herely has a new fan this first story in the Evergreen Series was so good I couldn’t put it down I read this short story in an hour. The characters are amazing and well written and the story line is so different from other stories that I have read about vampires.

Lord Evergreen boarded a ship and sailed to Alltree after hearing about the beauty of such land to see the land for himself. Captured by its beauty, he returned home to tell every one of the faraway island and his plans to build Evergreen Castle. Returning to Alltree with skilled craftsmen, he proceeded to build a castle on the west side of the island that overlooked the sea. After a decade, his castle was finally complete, and he brought his family to the island.

One by one, Lord Cumberland, Lord Fallon, Lord Draglaw, and Lord Heinrich made their journey to Alltree and began building castles of their own. They were all peace loving men, and the five Lords pledged to refrain from war and live in peace.

Soon immortals heard of the island and began to sneak aboard ships to make their way to Alltree. Once they arrived, they changed everything!

Lady Lara, Lord Evergreen’s granddaughter, is now the Mistress of Evergreen Castle. She is a two hundred year old vampire that has fought the madness and won. Her army of humans and vampires stand ready to protect the castle and the surrounding villages from those that disobey her one rule: Never drink human blood.

Thomas is overcome by grief after finding his family murdered he frequently seeks the village tavern to drown his pain with ale. Late one foggy evening after stumbling from the tavern, he is confronted by a stranger that will leave him mindless and craving the taste of blood. Observed by Lady Lara to be reckless and deadly, she offers her help to save him. Little does he know that being saved by her will lead to an unexpected love, an act of treason, and a willingness to sacrifice anything?
This is an awesome read that I highly recommend and can’t wait to see what Ms. Herely has in-stored for us in the next installment of the Evergreen series.

High Ground – Craig: A Short Story (UNDER GROUND #0.8) by Alice Rachel – Review by Bobbi

High Ground - Craig: A Short Story (UNDER GROUND #0.8)High Ground – Craig: A Short Story by Alice Rachel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

High Ground / Craig: A Short Story (Under Ground #0.9) by Alice Rachel is part of her Under Ground series. This story can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest you go back and read the previous books. They are just as awesome and one of the things I love most about this author is that even though these books are standalones they are still connected in some type of way. You get to see a little bit of everyone. This is one of my favorite series. They are engaging, they pull you in from the first word and you won’t be able to put them down. I love this author’s writing style. When she does the flashbacks, they are easy to follow and not confusing. Her attention to details are such that you will feel like you are right there in the middle of the action. Her characters are lovable and connectable. They are true to life and will take you on a journey that you won’t soon forget. This book is the story of Craig. He finds out that his parents has been killed in an accident. This confuses him because his parents are lower class and they don’t own a car. Because he is not quite of age, he has become part of the state. What will happen to him? Craig lives in a time when there a couple of new laws being put in place for the lower class. How will they effect him? Is he safe or is there a danger lurking after him. Craig is a character that thinks for himself, he is strong and independent. He knows what he wants and how to get it. He is not afraid to push limits to get what he needs. The secondary characters in this story are just as strong as he is. I can’t wait to see if they get their own books! They are supportive to him for the most part but of course you always have some you don’t really care for. There a couple you will question what they really want and where their morals are but it is what makes the story what it is. I highly recommend this story. I know you will want to see what happens in this next installment of Under Ground. Find out what Craig’s story is!

Flower Shields (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Sheri Schrader

Flower Shields (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 1)Flower Shields by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Flower Shields by C.A. King is the first book in the Four Horsemen series. This story follows Michael and Tara. Michael is one of the guardians of the gates of hell. When Tara is brought into his life everything changes for him. Tara is important to him and his guardianship of the gates and is in extreme danger. The only problem is that Tara does not know about any of this and how she fits into the equation. Michael is great. He is used to being a warrior and only lets the other Horsemen into his life. Tara is a free spirit and is not sure in what her direction to take her life. All she knows is that she loves flowers and being around them.
Tara is lovable and realistic. Many of us do not know what we want to do with our lives and how to fit the things we love into it. She is trusting and a bit naive. This lends itself to the story and her being able to get herself into some trouble but also keep herself protected at times. Michael is a typical warrior. He keeps everything close to himself and has a hard time letting outsiders into his world. On top of this, how is someone like Tara expected to understand him?
This was an enjoyable read and I almost read straight through to the end in one sitting. I enjoyed the story and the characters. The only downside is that the ending was left really open but I know that this is because there is more to come. I look forward to learning more about Gabby, Uriel, and Raphael in the future.

Impact (A Twisted Hearts Love Story book 4)Impact by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Impact A Twisted Hearts Love Story by Autumn Sand

Five Stars!!

This is the fourth book in the Twisted Hearts series by Autumn Sand. This book is about how Manny finds his true
love in Zoe and the twists and turns of his life happen. Set in persent as well as flashbacks this book is a veritable
twisted tail. From a singular characters point of view.

In Impact, Autumn Sands has created a virutal page turner. I couldnt put it down cause I was held by the intrigue and how the creative way
Autumn Sand has used the past to bring into focus the present time of the book. The book is excellently written and the
characters are brought to life by the creative twists and turns of this book. I was definately kept eager to see how the
twists and turns in the story line not only kept the book very fresh and intreresting but how the chemistry between Manny
and Zoe plays out. This book is a good lesson in how twisted love can be and how to keep hold of love that is true no
matter how much of a bad boy you are.

Bet Me Something (Something, #3) by Aubrey Bondurant – Review by Jenni Bishop

Bet Me Something (Something, #3)Bet Me Something by Aubrey Bondurant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bet Me Something is the third book in the Something Series by Aubrey Bondurant and it is every bit as good if not better than the others. Aubrey’s writing style finds you fully invested in and hooked with each and every book. Having read the other books in this series I was up to date on the back stories of the characters which I have come to love as if my own friends and family.
It is a fast, light and easy read that will have you hooked from the very first page and lost in the world that Aubrey has written.

Kenzie and Colby are our main characters who have always been in each other’s lives as they grew up together. Colby and Kenzie who both are dealing with their own insecurities which are holding them back from having a fulfilling life. There were a few times I was mad with how they were treated and for how others treated them and for not standing up for themselves. But overall they two beautifully smart, witty and intelligent people who you envy their easy going relationship, if only it could be more!

There are so many wonderful characters that we have learnt about in this series but there are still so many that we need to have their stories told. You will find yourself laughing and crying, holding your breath, heartbroken and jealous as you walk through the Something series world.

This is a 5 star read.
