My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Link works at The Soppranaturale to the unknowing eye, it is an up market hotel with all the glamour and pizazz the high rollers in society would want, plus a good old Irish bar in the basement and Link has been working there so long now that he is practically the owners right hand man. Ommily is a young woman who is on holiday with her fiancée and because she is obsessed with all things supernatural, she insists that they stay on one that is reportedly haunted.

The moment that Ommily walks in the door, all eyes are on her, men and women alike and she doesn’t seem to even have an idea, but Link is just as distracted as everyone else when he starts to check a man in at the front desk, but as soon as Ommily and Link set eyes on each other, there is a reaction that neither of them can deny. Thankfully, Links boss is there to give a hand and take over from him, at least until the two lovebirds move away to go to their room, this is where it is confirmed that that reaction was nothing normal, Link has just found the only other Faerie in the world and she is already taken.

This leads to Link drowning his sorrows and Ommily to wander into the bar just as he stops a fight breaking out, this leads to a question and answer session where Ommily finds out the truth she has always wanted to know, that werewolves, vampires and shapeshifters really exist and that she can be a part of their world, but unfortunately, her fiancée cannot. This leads to her finding out that together her and Link can be the strongest pair in the world with their opposite control of the uses of the four elements, but in order to be able to use these abilities to protect those around them, they first have to face The Gauntlet, but can they work together and make the hard decisions needed without killing each other first? This is a fantasy where life is not just black and white, humans and supernaturals, there is a balance which needs to be maintained and protecting that balance is the hardest thing to do and this is why this story will keep you engaged throughout as the fight for survival takes place.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love every book in this series. I was so excited for a Christmas story just in time for the cooler weather. I have read the other books in this series, but I don’t believe that you need to read the others to understand this book. This was an enjoyable quick read with lots of action to keep me hanging on. If you want a fun adventure this is the perfect book for you! I highly recommend this series and this book!

Grave Digger Academy (Grave Digger Academy Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Shavon Brown

Grave Digger AcademyGrave Digger Academy by C.A. King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Gravediggers actually do the digging. Grave Diggers however, keep buried bodies where they belong -six feet under. ”

7th daughter to a which family is apparently an unlucky number as Makayla finds out in her first year at Grave Digger Academy.

Grave Digger academy is a fun, well paced book about a magical school and the group that gets stuck in the grave digger academy. Makayla, Cali, Frankie and Leo are all stuck in the grave diggers academy which none of them wanted or expected. They feel like they aren’t learning magic and all they want to do is transfer to a different school.

During the school year they do find there helpers which all grave diggers need. And plenty of other exciting things happen as well. This book is a great start to what is definitely be an amazing series.

More exciting things happen during the school year, like Makayla discovering her great grandmother was a necromancer (an banned form of magic) and a battle with Mr. Woolly a teacher who wants her to join the dark side and become who she was always meant to be.

Jake (Billionaire Blind Dates Book 1) by Toni Denise – Review by – Review by Shavon Brown

Jake (Billionaire Blind Dates Book 1)Jake by Toni Denise
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A new twist on the billionaire genre. This is the story of Jake and Lauren and it does not disappoint. Jake using an app to find someone who doesn’t care about how rich he is. He does this by using an app that sets up blind dates in complete dark, so you get to know people before you see them.
Using this app he stumbles upon Lauren who happens to work for him.

This book has the slow burn that a lot of romances don’t and it gives you that will they wont they vibe. Its a quick and easy read for those of us who enjoy the romance genre.

I will say the one thing I did not like about this book was that there wasn’t a great deal of character development. And also it was all written in bold print which really made it hard to read for me.

The Serpent Awakens by Luna Saint Claire – Review by Shelly Kittell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found the book to have a few trigger warning areas. Overall, it was inspirational as you read about Nico’s journey returning to Buenos Aires to find himself. He went on quite a journey. The writing is beautiful. The characters and details of the journey are quite fascinating. There is so much in the story to be soaked in. I am positive that I will be reading it again. It is a story of faith as you follow the journey of Nico. He develops it on his travels. It’s a tale that must be read.

Boss’s Vendetta (Sicilian Gods Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Heidi Sturgess

Boss's Vendetta: Dark Mafia Romance (Sicilian Gods Book 1)Boss’s Vendetta: Dark Mafia Romance by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just loved the cover art but once I learnt more about Salvatore the cover became alive ! Nailed it ! For that alone I’ll give 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 what’s between the pages was even more epic ! I love myself a mafia family but I must say the Larussio’s are my favourite by far !❣️😉

When Salvatore and Dr Palento first cross paths you can feel the tension already and it’s off the charts 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥not long after that they’re thrown into chaos by an attack on their family at a family wedding and all hell breaks loose , I could smell the blood and fear I could hear the bullets flying and the screams it’s so well written ! Great Uncle takes a near fatal hit and the beautiful Dr Palento plays a monumental role in pulling him through , his stubborn nature helped him fight as well 😂😉❣️

What follows in the underground place of safety and later on the ground is a read of epic proportions, there’s sizzling hot and steamy romance , there’s suspense , a lot of blood , violence and gore and a few very unexpected twists and turns that had me do a double take and reread and yes I did gasp 😱

Yes we have a HEA but I’m starved for more of the Larussio family 🔥🥰

The Second View (The View from Here Trilogy Book 2) by Leon Stevens – Review by Shelly Kittell

The Second View (Book 2 of The View trilogy)The Second View by Leon Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is really a very interesting book. The second in the series,it will take you back into the center world on another unknown adventure with our travelers. Travel to a place of mystery, a little adventure, a bit of solitude and a lot of sand. Maybe you’ll run into AI? I found the story to be engaging in spots yet a little dry in others. I enjoyed reading about the travels into the unknown world. At other times, I sort of felt like it was some type of video game. It also felt like maybe, a warning. Could we face this on our Earth? Fiction or could there also be a little message in the story. It left me thinking about what i read, which is good. I can’t wait for the next adventure.
