Rules of Engagement: A Single Dad Romance (Platonically Complicated book 3) by Mika Jolie – Review by Susan Mowdy

Rules of EngagementRules of Engagement by Mika Jolie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am a full on suck for a single dad romance! I don’t know what makes me fall in love with them but they are the best and this doesn’t disappoint! This book was sweet friends to lovers romance that covered all the bases of everything I look for.

I loved Lucas. He didn’t want to give up the rights to his daughter so his BF, Kate, stood up, but quickly that muddled the feelings. His feelings turned to her but he was conflicted because he was burned before and he wasn’t sure he could trust again.

I’m always a sucker for the single parent romance probably because I’ve been there and even though I found my HEA, I thrive on books that have single parents because they always have a piece of me!

Shattered Love (Forever Us Series, #1) by Nivia Borell – Review by Susan Mowdy

Shattered LoveShattered Love by Nivia Borell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book 100% lives up to its title of Shattered Love. This is no easy, light hearted read but it’s raw and it’ll put your heart through the wringer.

Bria and Damien were childhood sweethearts. They thought they had their lives mapped out and it always included them being together. On Bria’s 18th birthday all of that shattered. Damien found her in bed with another man and she has no memory of it. No as adults, they are not whole. They are barely going through life. Can they make a mend or at least get closure to move on?

This book was written in several perspectives which I believe helped keep the story well balanced. I’m looking forward for more stories from Nivia Borell

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series, #2) by Bea Stevens – Review by Susan Mowdy

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series #2)Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say, I fell madly in love with this series from the get go. Liberty is one of those characters that is completely relatable and you have no choice but to love her on site.

Her new job is a reporter and unfortunately its not all cracked up to what she thought. Chandler, the guy she’s supposed to shadow runs everywhere which prove to be rough on her shoes. Not only that, but he sneaks off without her. The girls in the office don’t necessarily like her plus she crushes on doesn’t seem to notice her.

These book are seriously addicting and completely relatable. I’m impatiently tapping my foot for book 3!

Best Foot Forward (The Liberty Lawrence Series, #1) by Bea Stevens – Review by Susan Mowdy

Best Foot ForwardBest Foot Forward by Bea Stevens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Best Foot Forward is the first in the Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. This was such a light – hearted, fun, enchanting, perfect binge read for the weekend book. I was completely captivated from the get go and was so excited to jump into book 2 next.

Liberty has to be one of my favorite Heroine’s. She loves her fashion but she has a clumsy side that us so easy to fall in love with. She is the junior manager at a London hotel where her boss’s office has had a theft. She’s quite positive she knows who it is but the hot as all get out detective doesn’t really care what she has to say about it.

There was not one thing I didn’t love about this book. Miss Stevens did a beautiful job setting up the building blocks for this series and I’m dying for more!

Hard as Steel (Surviving Series, #4) by Virginia Wine – Review by Susan Mowdy

Hard as Steel: Book four (Hard as Steel: Book four by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is one of those series that seriously consume me! From the very first book, this series is one that everyone needs to one click right away!

I loved Steel Archer! He’s one of those male characters that will do anything and everything for those he loves! Then we have Nicole Lancaster who is an FBI agent and used to men in the world of her work. The chemistry is intense between these two and the story is UN FREAKING BELIEVABLE!!!

This story is definitely dark and has its twists and turns. I love a book that keeps you guessing. These two had their work cut out for them but they’re story was phenomenal! Everyone needs this series!

Penny for Your ThoughtsPenny for Your Thoughts by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book hooked me! The characters and author hooked me from the beginning and this was a sweet and beautiful love story that you will love.

Alex and Penny are beautifully written. you will love them and they will break your but by the end of the story your heart will be renewed.

Alex is someone who fixes everything and I feel like Penny is someone who fights what she has and with a chance encounter the sparks fly.

JD Boudreaux has me hooked to her writing and she makes me rave more!

The Monster’s Lover (The Fenris Series) by Samantha MacLeod – Review by Susan Mowdy

The Monster's LoverThe Monster’s Lover by Samantha MacLeod
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ll be honest, This book took me by absolute surprise. I LOVED IT! Its the first book in the Fenris series and I’m ready to dive into more!

This book is based of the Norse myth of Fenrir which is a massive wolf. I love how Miss MacLeod spun mythology into her own story to make it her own. She has a way of hooking you from the very beginning and not let you up until the very end. Yes, the book is shorter than most BUT it’s jam packed with so much but I promise it won’t overwhelm you.

This book alone has intrigued me to read her other works and I went right ahead and one-clicked them. If your looking for something different then this book and beginning of a series is A MUST!

This is my first book by Alicia Street and I will say she has me hooked. Its the 3rd book in the series but its a standalone but with that said I’m going back to read them all!

This book needs to be on everyone one click list! I’ll be going back to read her other books because she has me hooked!

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider – Review by Susan Mowdy

Chain Reaction (Nite Fire, Book 2)Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Nite Fire series and I will say it has literally hooked me! Dahlia is back fighting crime protecting the humans of Sentinel City. The first book had me hooked but this one grabbed me even harder!

We received a whole lot of background with the first novel when it comes to the setting and the paranormal aspect and this book literally takes off and doesn’t give you a break. It gives you a good dose of reality and paranormal ALL within the same book.

I loved the twists and turns that was around every corner of this book. Dahlia was pushed to her edge but it didn’t stop her from solving the case. This is probably my fav paranormal book this year!
