Dating the It Guy by Krysten Lindsay Hager
Four Stars

Dating the It Guy is a YA, High School Coming of Age story by Krysten Lindsay Hager. This is the first book I have read by this author, but it definitely won’t be the last. The characters are amazingly detailed and the emotions had me all over the place. I was laughing one minute and reaching for a tissue the next. This is one book I couldn’t put down, it brought back memories of my high school time many years ago. I would recommend this book to anyone no matter their age. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Hager.

Swindler’s Revenge (Karina Cardinal Mysteries Book 5) by Ellen Butler – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Swindler’s Revenge by Ellen Butler
Five Stars

Swindler’s Revenge is the fifth book in the Karina Cardinal Mysteries series by Ellen Butler. This series keeps getting better and better as they continue. Karina is on the hunt again. This time to help her ex, Mike, out of the trouble he is in with the FBI. This series can be read as standalones, but I highly recommend they be read in order to get the full effect of the backstory. I absolutely adore the way Ms. Butler injects a bit of humor into her stories. This one had me laughing out loud at the same time guessing how it was going to end. This is my new favorite of this series. I highly recommend this book, series and author. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

No Way Out (Mafia Elite, book 1) by Amy McKinley – Review by Sunday Barnaby

No Way Out (Mafia Elite, #1)No Way Out by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

No Way Out by Amy McKinley
Five Stars

No Way Out: An Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance is the first book in the Mafia Elite Series by Amy McKinley. What a powerful read. Ms. McKinley is one of my go to authors and I have enjoyed everything I have read by her, but this is by far my absolutely my favorite. At first, I thought it was going to be confusing with all the characters mentioned before the story started. It turned out to be a good reference, but the story was gripping and held me from beginning to end. Max and Liliana have hot, hot, hot chemistry. I can’t wait to get the book in this series. Excellent, Best Read Of 2021 so far.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Natural Passion by Tammy Mannersly
Four Stars

A Natural Passion is a short story with a cause running through it. I have read a few books by Ms. Mannersly and this one is my favorite. I love stories that have preservation of animals, and this hit the spot. This was a fast read, about an hour and a half, but it was just what I needed on a lazy Sunday Afternoon. Dylan and Kyra have chemistry, but it took a while for them to figure it out. This was a really enjoyable read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Something Lost by Bernadette Marie
Four Stars

Something Lost is the first book in the Funerals and Weddings series by Bernadette Marie. This book had my attention from the very first page. The Fab 5 are brought together by their college coach’s funeral, it also brought Craig and Rachel, coach’s daughter, back together. This book had all the feels, and I love the way this author hooks you for the whole series with the fantastic bits of backstory about each of the Fab 5. This was a great read for a fall afternoon, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great romance. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dire’s Club by Kimberly Packard
Five Star

Dire’s Club is an emotionally gut wrenching story that will have you reaching for the tissue box one minute and smiling the next. The characters are amazing and well written. The topic of death is not an easy one, but this author really expressed it well. The story flowed and was an emotional refreshing for me. This is the first book I have read by Ms Packard, but definitely won’t be the last.

Dating the Intern by Natalina Reis
Five Stars

Dating the Intern is Natalina Reis’ new romcom, and my new favorite book of hers. She is one of my go to authors. I like her writing style, and her attention to details. This book held my attention from beginning to end. My emotions were all over the place with this one. My thoughts are that it is a great book, if it makes you laugh out loud or sob like a baby. This book did both. Ivory and Li-Qiang are great characters with some hot chemistry. This book was just what I needed to de-stress for a few hours. Looking forward to reading more from Ms. Reis in the future.

Turning Wheels (Satan’s Devils MC #1) AUDIO BOOK by Manda Mellett – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Turning Wheels by Manda Mellett

Narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister

Five Stars

 

Turning Wheels is the first book in Satan’s Devil’s MC: A Blood Brothers Spinoff,  by Manda Mellett. Manda Mellett is one of my one click authors. This is one of my favorite books of hers. Sophie and Wraith have amazing chemistry, but the other brothers in the club really give depth to the story. Their stories are something I’m looking forward to. 

Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister are new to me narrators. I really enjoyed the way they brought the characters to life and their voices blended well together. I look forward to listening to more books by these two. This book is definitely a five star listen.

HER DARK LOVE (DARK SPELL SERIES Book 4) by ISRA SRAVENHEART – Review by Sunday Barnaby

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her Dark Love by Isra Sravenheart
Four Stars

Her Dark Love is the fourth book in the Dark Spell series by Isra Sravenheart. This is one series that should definitely be read in order to get the full effect of what is happening. The writing is original and very detailed. There are many characters and each is portrayed with detail. This book brings us back to the beginning of Isra’s story and how she found herself on the path she is currently on. I truly enjoyed this whole series, but I think this is my favorite book so far. I can’t wait to see what will happen in the next book.

Houses of Deception (The Madeline Dawkins Mystery Series Book 6) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Houses of Deception (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 6)Houses of Deception by Cynthia Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Houses of Deception by Cynthia Hamilton
Four Stars

Houses of Deception is the sixth book in the Madeline Dawkins series by Cynthia Hamilton. This book is the best book in this series, so far. I would highly recommend you read this series in order. Although, each book is a complete story and can be a standalone, you will get the full backstory if you read the series from the beginning. This book is both thrilling and suspenseful, as the rest of the books in the series Ms. Hamilton keeps you guessing right until the end. Madeline and Mike are on the case, well two cases, and they are finding that neither case is as it first seemed. The twists and turns had me up late into the night trying to figure out the mysteries of the cases. Ms. Hamilton has such a brilliant way of keeping you guessing right until the end. I highly recommend this book, series and author.
