Dinner with The Wolf (Misfits & Rogues Series Book 2) by Kimberly Forrest – Review by Stefanie Carney

Dinner with The Wolf (Misfits & Rogues Series Book 2)Dinner with The Wolf by Kimberly Forrest
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So, this is the second book in the series, I was not aware of that when I started reading it and usually I would be lost, but this was perfectly laid out so that I didn’t feel lost. Everything made sense to me, so I applaud the author for a seamless beginning. The characters were the perfect example of this genre and I appreciated that as well. This is a great example of the paranormal romance story, it was full of emotion, action, and just the right amount of danger. It showed that this genre has heart and as always is entertaining. I opened this book and I was instantly enthralled, I could not stop reading it and I think it will be the same for anyone who picks it up.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an unexpected surprise. I liked that the author took this series and spun in around. She changed the perspective and I felt it was fresh and new again because she did that. This was a short easy read that quickly enveloped me and I fully enjoyed it. It’s a great addition to this series and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It could be that I have gotten used to the writing, it could be that I have developed a fascination with the characters or it could simply be this book was just pure entertainment that I didn’t want it to stop. Since this picks up exactly where the previous book left off, I felt as though I never stopped reading the story. I was enthralled from the first word and it went by way too quickly for me. I’m really starting to appreciate this author and I am excited to see what she does next. If you are looking for a thrill ride to help you escape for a little while, this is the book for you.

Unraveled by Aubrey Bondurant – Review by Stefanie Carney

UnraveledUnraveled by Aubrey Bondurant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unraveled simply unraveled me. I knew what I was getting myself into when I started this book, but I was still not prepared for the emotions that poured through me. I was completely and utterly wrecked by this book. As with any book that deals with such a topic as this one, it can be difficult to read, but the beauty of this book lies in the beauty of the characters and their humanness. As I read this story, I felt that Kellan was just too good to be true but I know that if I ever faced this reality, my husband would definitely be more Kellan than Chad. There is a strength I found while reading this, one that reminds me just how strong we can be and I think that this story will do the same for anyone lucky enough to read it. I would just recommend not being in public and having a box of tissues when you do.

Dracones Guardian (Dracones Book 6) by Sheri-Lynn Marean – Review by Stefanie Carney

Dracones Guardian: Dark Dragon, Archangel Paranormal/Fantasy RomanceDracones Guardian: Dark Dragon, Archangel Paranormal/Fantasy Romance by Sheri-Lynn Marean
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There is a great story here, but I feel as though it’s buried under so much “but wait there’s more” that it just feels over done. I love a good supernatural story and I was excited for this book, but there was just so much going on and it took me so long to wade through it that I honestly just wanted to give up, but I didn’t. It was like the author had fifteen ideas and decided to throw them all into the first five chapters which made it difficult to see the charm of the characters and appreciate the adventure of the story. That being said, I found the base story riveting, the characters enthralling, and I kept reading to see what happened. This may not have been my cup of tea but I think that it is perfect for people who like a lot going on in a story and can keep track of it all.

Say Something by Jennifer L. Allen – Review by Stefanie Carney

Say SomethingSay Something by Jennifer L. Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy cheese on a cracker. This was such an amazing story! I knew from the first page that I was going to love this book while hating the emotions that it would bring out in me. I cried in empathy for Jessica, I cried in support for women who suffer through such a hard thing and I cried for the pure beauty that is this love story. I felt all of the emotions that this book conveyed and I am better for reading it. I knew how this love story would end, but I still never wanted to read the final words, I could have read so much more about these two and the amazing love they share. This book is an inspiration and it gives hope to those that may be lost. I feel like every woman should read this story to see that there is a light at the end of a dark tunnel. I can not recommend this book enough.

Impact (Twisted Hearts Love Story #4) by Autumn Sand – Review by Stefanie Carney

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

Impact is a story about the life that got away and how we cope with it. It was full of emotions and it definitely kept me flipping pages to see what would happen next. I felt like I was there watching this whole storyline happen and I love that about Autumn Sand, she is talented for sure. I think the thing I liked most about this story is the tension and angst, it was so palpable. I have read this author before and with each book I dive into, I see another perspective on the world in which we live. I think it takes a lot to fully transport a person into another’s reality and I believe this book does that really well.

The Vampire Queen (Wheels of Crowns Book 3) by Brandi Elledge – Review by Stefanie Carney

The Vampire Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 3)The Vampire Queen by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Vampire Queen is the third installment in this funny and thrilling series. Tandi is a great character that made me laugh in public way too much. These stories are full of adventure and sweet romance, but I also think that they are empowering. That’s what I love about this genre, it shows you that you can be flawed but that those flaws don’t define you. That strength comes in all forms and sometimes it’s the people we least expect who surprise us the most. This book proved to be just as enthralling as the previous two and the only problem that I do have with this book is, it didn’t give any hint as to who the next queen will be. I’m way too eager to see what unfolds in the quest to save the world.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the second story in the series. It is a short story in pages but not in thrills for sure. I will freely admit that this is not my go to genre to read but it was definitely entertaining. I feel that the problem with stories this short is that you can’t really get to know the characters so you don’t form a bond but since this has some recurring people in it, I was able to build on what I already knew of this crazy daring woman. If you have some time to waste and want a nonstop action short story, then this is definitely for you.

Murder Among Friends by Linda Burson – Review by Stefanie Carney

Murder Among FriendsMurder Among Friends by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book has a great story line, but for me it suffers from too many ideas and not enough editing. Maybe it’s because I love a good thriller that I started this book with high expectations and for the most part I wasn’t disappointed but there were definitely some things that I had to question. I definitely didn’t know who I could trust while reading this which reminded me of Gone Girl and I think that that alone is a talent. I feel like there is an amazing writer here, one who is thoughtful and thinks about the steps ahead. Though this may not have been my favorite book, I really respect Linda Burson for putting out a book that kept me guessing and flipping the pages. I am eager to see what she does next.
