Avenging Devil Part 2 (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #4) by Manda Mellett – Review by Shannon Fowler

Avenging Devil Part 2: Satan's Devils MC San DiegoAvenging Devil Part 2: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great ending! What a great turn of events! This story is Avenging Devil part 2. The conclusion to part 1. I loved the development of the characters, especially Saffie, from the beginning of part 1 to the ending of part 2. I loved that this story includes many characters from the club. Definitely must read in order.

The only thing I have to complain about is the middle seemed to slow down a little bit, drag just a little…just seemed like boring day to day life while waiting for the conclusion. Although now that I think about the twists that Mellett threw in there, I think the slow part may have been part of her plan to lull us into a safe zone and then BAM! An amazing twist and climax to make you sit up and think what the … just happened!?! And the way Saffie happens her own club business…Just ah!!

This story is twisted and is not for the faint of heart. There are warnings in the blurb as well. Read with caution but get ready for a ride!

Pet Me (The Toye Shoppe Book 1) by Angelique Jurd – Review by Shannon Fowler

Pet Me (The Toye Shoppe #1)Pet Me by Angelique Jurd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jurd is a new to me author. This story is a sweet romance that happens between two males and happens to involve kink. This story is good for any reader with an open mind, a nonjudgmental reader.

Bailey is a sweet innocent young adult male who wishes to be special. He doesn’t understand how special he really is. Oh, my! He is so innocent. Bailey’s life is anything but easy and of course he has dreams of finding true love, someone who will care for him and someone he can care for as well. Someone he can trust with his dreams.

Sam is a man reaching the best years of his life. He doesn’t realize he is missing something until Bailey walks into his store. Sam has experience and knowledge. But he is lacking a special someone he can care for. A chance meeting helps these two discover there is more to life than what they are currently experiencing.

I love how this story creates an acceptable world for these two to explore and love. I love the secondary characters also known as friends! Looking forward to what’s next for this group of characters.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story is not safe for work, not for children and definitely not for readers with triggers due to rape, torture, or abuse. Everyone else will love this story…well maybe not the ending!! UGH those cliffhangers! But the title does say PART 1 for a reason!

Mellett loves her MC stories and she does an amazing job with each one. Every story digging deeper into the lives of Satan’s Devils and securing these characters into our hearts. Avenging Devil is no different! Saffie and Niran are strong characters on their own but they really need each other and we need them to work it out and realize their need is more than just about sex. The need for a friend, the need for protection, the need for love, and the need of feeling safe. Just plain safe.

This series needs to be read in order so that you can experience the other characters in the club and understand the brotherhood. Since this story ends with a cliffhanger, I am patiently ish waiting for part two.

Dragons by Ty Drago – Review by Shannon Fowler

DragonsDragons by Ty Drago
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a fun, interesting fantasy story! My first one by Drago as this genre isn’t my usual go to. However, when I need a break from my romance stories, I know that I will continue to read the stories by Ty Drago.

This story has a little bit of everything: action, adventure, fantasy, romance. This story will be loved by “science nerds” and adventure loving readers and it is definitely a good story for young adults.

I love how this story is set in space and on one of Juniper’s moons. Living in space and being on spaceship has to be quite the adventure. But then again Andy is full of surprises and adventures look like they will be his new normal now. My only complaint about this story is the use of the word “furking”. In the beginning it really bugged me but by the end it actually fit the character and story line so I didn’t mind it…as much.

I look forward to reading more from Drago and certainly more about these characters.

Turning Wheels (Satan’s Devils MC#1) by Manda Mellet – Review by Shannon Fowler

Turning Wheels (Satan's Devils MC, #1)Turning Wheels by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Turning Wheels is the first in the series entitled Satan’s Devils, but not the first book I have read by Mellet. This is probably one of my favorite stories by Mellet.

I love this storyline and these characters, especially the “disabled” character of Wheels. She is one tough cookie. I really love how the plot kept moving and the buildup to the climax was not a letdown at all.

This story is about a motorcycle club, MC, that while may not be completely innocent, they do try to do the right thing. And protecting women is one of those things. When Sophie is threatened by a wealthy crazy man the MC takes her under their protection. I love that Sophie has no idea about MC’s in America being that she is from England. Her surprise and learning is refreshing if not comical.

Wraith is the VP of the club with no desire to be president and no desire to have an old lady, wife in MC terms. He earned his name…well as you can imagine. When he meets Sophie, he is taken back by his immediate feelings for her. His protective instincts sky rocket.

The two learn how to accept each other and bring out the best in each, as any healthy relationship should be. I am looking forward to the rest of the club’s stories.

Cursed Sight (Broderick Coven Series Book 2) by AJ Renee – Review by Shannon Fowler

Cursed Sight (Broderick Coven, #2)Cursed Sight by A.J. Renee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The main characters of Cursed Sight are witches, Ethan and Serena. There are other magical characters in this story such as shifters and demons. Oh my!

While I did not read book 1, I really liked this story. And now I know I need to read the first book in this series, obviously Brandy and Ryan’s story is something that I need to know.

Cursed Sight is about Ethan finding his powers and learning what he sees and how to prevent his visions from becoming a reality. His story looks like it begins in book 1 so all the more reason to read it! Serena is the coven high priestess. Her powers surpass almost everyone’s, but she too, has lessons to learn, like who might be trying to get rid of her. Helping Ethan with his powers may protect her as well.

Ready for book 3…wondering if it will be Peter’s turn or maybe Max? or one of the other brothers?

Cursed Whispers (Broderick Coven, #3)Cursed Whispers by A.J. Renee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Each story is getting better and better. Loved these characters. Loved their protectiveness, their devotion, and their energy! Renee writes about a magical world I can imagine being a part of, a world that I want to be a part of.

Many stories build up to the climax and rush the ending causing a letdown feeling, but not Renee. The buildup is intense and well written. The climax was paced just right in this story, I did not feel any disappointment at the “ending”.

Every time I read another shifter story by Renee; I remember just how much I love them! While this is the third in the Broderick Coven Series, it could possibly read as a stand alone if you didn’t already have the first two. (FYI the others as just as good! You will want them too!) The main characters for each book is a different couple but from the Broderick family. Cursed Whispers is about Max Broderick, the veterinarian. The veterinarian that can talk to animals. He finds an injured wolf who turns out to be Claudia, a wolf shifter in need of more than just a doctor’s help. Luckily, Max is special. And ready to fight, protect and love.

Ready to read the next brother’s adventure!

Relentless: Dark Billionaire Mafia Romance (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 4) by Via Mari – Review by Shannon Fowler

RelentlessRelentless by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Relentless, meaning never giving up. Layla is relentless in looking for her sister. Dereck is relentless in helping and protecting Layla. Even the bad guys are relentless in their human trafficking pursuits.

I enjoyed the banter between Layla and Dereck through-out the entire book. And I really like how Layla is such a tough woman. She can protect herself, find her sister and still love the man. Mari has created believable characters and a real-life world that is worth reading about.

While Relentless is not my favorite of Mari’s stories, it is still 4-star worthy. This story can be read as a stand alone since the previous characters are only slightly mentioned. But the Billionaire Bodyguard series is worth the read.

Key West Dead (Jake Wolfe Book 6) by Mark Nolan – Review by Shannon Fowler

Key West DeadKey West Dead by Mark Nolan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Key West Dead is book 6 of the Jake Wolfe Novels. I love the characters that Nolan has created in this series. Sarah, Cody, Jake and even the Florida police officers working the case of Orion, the boat bomber. This story is action packed with adventure. And the description of the Key West area is realistic. Always a good mystery story when Nolan’s writing it. His stories are always believable and fun.
Looking forward to reading what Jake and Cody get into next. Definitely recommend this author.

Peaceful Slumber (Soul Connection Book 1) by Nikki Lynn Barrett – Review by Shannon Fowler

Peaceful Slumber (Soul Connection, #1)Peaceful Slumber by Nikki Lynn Barrett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought I had read other books by Nikiki Lynn Barrett, but to my surprise this is the first! I am so excited to have found a new to me author that I like…no that I love! Even the cover is great and I really don’t care about covers!

Peaceful Slumber is a mystery with a little romance, with a little paranormal, with a big adventure! This is a story that I could not put down. I had to know what was going to happen, who was going to do it and why it was happening! Barrett put just enough suspicion in this story that anything was possible.

I love stories that touch on social situations. Barrett has chosen mental health. While it is a very serious topic, her story gives a little hope to those who also suffer. Finding that one person who is your one is hard enough and being anything different makes it even harder.

Zelda is the female main character and Barrett really puts her through every tough situation you could think of. Except Zelda doesn’t remember any of it. Including her own name. Scott seems like the only one that could help her. They are both lost souls who are a little different and they are perfect for each other. However, with so much unknown in this story it doesn’t look like there will be a happy ending.

The storyline is ORIGINAL…at least from my list of books. I really love this story!

I highly recommend this story and can not wait to read anything by Barrett! Since this is the first book in the Soul Connection series, there will be more!!!
