Building Storm: A Hawke Family Novel by Gwyn McNamee
Five Stars

Building Storm is the fourth book in The Hawke Family series by Gwyn McNamee. This series needs to be read in order because one book follows the next. This is such a great series, you won’t want to miss any of the five star stories. That being said this is my absolute favorite book by Ms. McNamee and the best story I have read over the past year. Storm and Landon’s story is so emotional. They have both lost loved ones or been hurt by those they loved. This is truly an amazing story that you won’t want to miss. I highly recommend this book, series and author and can’t wait to see what Ms. McNamee has in store for us next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tapped by Tarrah Anders
Five Stars

Tapped is the third book in The Night Moves series by Tarrah Anders. This book can definitely be read as a standalone, but I would highly recommend you read the series in order because the first two books are equally fantastic. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the last. Janea and Kai are such a wonderful and highly electric couple and I just wanted their story to go on and on. I highly recommend this book, series and author. I look forward to reading more from Tarrah Anders in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Christmas Wish by Engy Neville
Four Stars

A Christmas Wish (A Manhattan Dream) is a wonderful holiday romance by Engy Neville. Even though I read it after Christmas, I just loved the way it brought that joyous feeling back to me. It flowed so well I read it in one sitting. This is the first book I have read by Engy Neville and I look forward to reading many more. Amy is such a strong female lead, and I really related to her. The emotions brought out is this book are varied, laughing out loud and reaching for a tissue. If you love romance this is a great read for you. I highly recommend.

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagle MC Series) by T. Birmingham – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Book 2)Written in the Stars by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Written in the Stars by T. Birmingham
Five Stars

Written in the Stars is the second book in the Fallen Eagle MC Series by T. Birmingham. This series should be read in order because it follows the first book and the characters are recurring. Plus why would you want to miss out on the fabulous first book in the series, A Terrible Beauty. This romantic suspense had me hooked on the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until I finished the last. It is fast paced and an emotional roller coaster. It had me laughing out loud and also reaching for a tissue a time or two. A book that can move me so much and leave me with a book hangover for days after is definitely Five Stars. I love Eagle and Winter’s story and how their characters grew throughout the book. This is such a great series an$ I look forward to reading more by T. Birmingham. I have to say this is my new favorite book of 2019.

The Way You Are (The Carolina Connections Series) by Sylvie Stewart – Review by Sunday Barnaby

The Way You Are (The Carolina Connections, #5)The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart
Five Stars

The Way You Are is the fifth book in The Carolina Connections series by Sylvie Stewart. This book can be read as a standalone, but I don’t have one reason why you would want to skip the first four. They are all excellent reads with all the feels, and this story is no exception. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I stayed up half the night finishing it (definitely worth losing sleep over). This book features Liz and Brett’s story. It is witty and sweet, heartwarming and heartbreaking at time. I’m totally drawn to these characters and Ms. Stewart really makes you feel like you are right there with them. I love it when a book makes me laugh out loud or reach for a tissue and this book fitthat requirement. This is my favorite of the series so far, and I really can’t wait to see what Sylvie Stewart will dream up for us next.

Nite Fire: Flash Point by C.L. Schneider – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Flash Point (Nite Fire, #1)Flash Point by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nite Fire: Flash Point by C.L. Schneider
Four Stars

Nite Fire: Flash Point is the first book in the Nite Fire series by C.L. Schneider. This is the fourth book I have read by this author, which I believe is the total books written so far. I have to say that the world building and character development is well beyond the usual talent of a new author. This book is amazingly detailed and flowed smoothly throughout. I was hooked on the very first page and couldn’t put this book down. The story is filled with action, suspense and mystery. Dalia Nite has fled her home planet and taken up residence in the human world. She is isolated and protecting the humans without their knowledge for them allowing her to stay in relative peace. Things start to get messy when more non human creatures start causing trouble, but will Dalia be able to solve the mystery?
This is a great book and if you like paranormal, I highly recommend this book. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Surviving Jordan (Surviving Series Book 3)Surviving Jordan by Virginia Wine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Surviving Jordan by Virginia Wine
Five Stars

Surviving Jordan is the third book in the Surviving series by Virginia Wine. This series should be read in order because the characters overlap and also because the first two books are also excellent reads. This just may be my very favorite from Ms. Wine. This book hooked me from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until the last. It is filled with action, suspense and romance. This is Jordan and Ben’s story and it had me rooting for a happily ever after, but I wasn’t quite sure I was going to get it. You will need to read it to find out. This book, series and author are definitely worth reading. I was thoroughly entertained and look forward to reading more that Ms. Wine has in store for us.

Player by Pamela DuMond
Five Stars

Player is the first book in the 21st Century Courtesan series by Pamela DuMond. This is the first book I have read by this author, and I have to say, I hope I have the pleasure of reading many more. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until the last. Evie is a school teacher by day and a high end escort at night. She is a very interesting character who feels she has to help the men she has dates with. When she meets Dylan, a professional poker player, things change for her. The book flows well and I enjoyed the writing style. I can’t wait to read what Ms. DuMond has instore for us in the next book in this series.

The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe
Four Stars

The Memory of Us is a new adult romance by Lisa Sorbe. This is not the first story I have read by Ms. Sorbe, but it is my new favorite. This book had me on an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. Elena is such a strong female, who holds herself apart for fear of being hurt. When she returns to her home town after the death of her mother, she thinks it is for a short trip, but the memories make her think differently. Weston is the boy, best friend, she left behind when she left town twelve years ago and the first man she sees when coming back. This story flowed well and kept me rooting for Elena and Weston. If you are looking for a second chance romance this is just the story for you. I highly recommend this book and author. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Sorbe has in store for us next.

Wish Upon a Bollywood Star by Pamela Q. Fernandes
Four Stars

Wish Upon a Bollywood Star is a short, fast paced romance by Pamela Q. Fernandes. This is the first book I have read by this author, and I have to say I really enjoy her writing technique. The way she describes Bollywood makes me feel like I’m really there. The story between Vir Seth and Soumya Ninan is intense and intriguing because even though they deny an attraction you can feel it bubbling beneath the surface. I love learning about different cultures and this book really delves in. I also liked the way the book flowed and smooth reading experience. I would recommend this romance to everyone and look forward to reading more books from Ms. Fernandes.
