Venganza: The Fuentes Legacy by Greta Cribbs

5 Stars

I was so so so excited when I found this book, I read Primogenito quite a while back and of course loved it as with any book by this author and when I found this one and then realized it was the prequel I was even more thrilled. To write a story that goes back before the brilliance of Primogenito and getting to know these people a little more and understanding how this story started was genius. This author continues to amaze me and I absolutely can not say enough about how much I love her stories and how she forms the storylines.

This one was nothing short of heart breaking and I held my breath a few times and felt some deep rooted anger that had me wanting to crawl into my kindle and show a few people what they could do with their protected secrets!! The emotions that were portrayed in this story made them feel so so real because they weren’t just written they were formed with the greatest care and I felt as close to understanding how these people were feeling as I possibly could.

I just don’t know how to put in words my love for this author’s writing, even if some of the things she writes are so very hard to read she does it in a way that you can tell she thought about her readers as she wrote her words.

I HIGHLY recommend this and every book this author has, I became a forever fan after the first book I read by her and that continues to be the case.

Amazingly Awesome!!

The Killmores (Killmore #2) by Martha Sweeney – Review by Emily Walsh

The Killmores (Killmore #2)The Killmores
ByMartha Sweeney
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Killmores (Killmore #2) by Martha Sweeney was a action packed, not your normal romance thrill, with a power couple could give Mr. and Mrs Smith a run for their money.

I am in deep with this series, it’s everything I never knew I wanted in a action romance. Both are kickass, both are amazing, and this isn’t a story about the hot action, alpha guy saving the girl. No, no, this story is about a powerhouse couple that work together, fight it out and know how to give and take.

Outside of the nail biting action and heart pounding intense situations, the writing is on point. Everything flowed cohesively, transitions were near seamless and, the detail was rich and drawing. I felt like I was watching a blockbuster action movie instead of reading a book.

Not one for spoilers, I don’t want to say anymore as it will ruin this fan-freaking-tastic book. I will warn you that this is part of a series, and it picks up pretty much were the last leaves off. It has a continuation timeline and plot, so I highly suggest you read the first book, Killmore, as to not get confused.

So if you haven’t guest, I highly, highly recommend you get your hands on this book, this series. Take my stamp of approval that you will be capture by this power couple, their resolved and, the endless thrilling action.

Happy reading

One moment, Capitol Hill lobbyist Karina Cardinal is having a heated discussion with Senator Harper, who just torpedoed her latest health care legislation initiative. The next, after a cryptic remark, the senator is dead at her feet. Hours later, she’s still so rattled she wakes to a freezing apartment because she forgot to close her back door. Or did she?

When her boyfriend, FBI cybercrimes expert Mike Finnegan, is suddenly reassigned to work a new case, he’s got bad news and worse news. The bad: the senator’s death was no heart attack—it was assassination by a hacker disabling his pacemaker. Worse: Karina’s a “person of interest”.

Duty. Responsibility. Family.

Three words that form the gilded cage I’ve lived in my whole life. I’m the Princess of the Canzano Family, a title many would think to be glamorous, amazing. Well, the glamorous part would be accurate, but that’s where it ends. I’m absolutely miserable.

I’ve been training since I was six years old to protect the Family… a side of me that I need to keep hidden. I must appear to be the perfectly polished Princess at all times, a ruse and title I despise. I get no choice in anything, everything is controlled for me by my father, the Capo. I wish and dream for the freedom to be ME.

When a rival Family strikes causing my life to be turned upside down, I didn’t think things could get any worse and then I learn how wrong I am, as I’m forced to become my worst nightmare in order to protect the Family I want no part of.

My life went from being bearable misery…to nothing short of Tragic.

Neverland by Melissa Jane – Review by Emily Walsh

NeverlandNeverland
ByMelissa Jane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Neverland by Melissa Jane was a dark, psychological thriller, that had me hooked. This book had me so engrossed, I had it read in less then three hours.

Not my first read by this author, so I knew I was in for something dark, twist and feels ripping. And boy did I get that, and more. I will warn you this book will be triggering if you are sensitive to assault, sexual assault, abusive violence or language. This is not for the faint of heart, and I can tell you there is a very, VERY, bitter-sweet ending, that I still don’t know if I like.

I don’t even know where to start with this one. I don’t want to tell you anything because of the way it’s written, giving you anything on the MC’s, the plot, and the antagonist, no not antagonist, abuser, will ruin this heart destroying read. I will tell you that it’s written in past and present. That back and forth is done very well, and the author does a great job at matching the past and present. Clean transitions, and soil emotional writing, makes the scene swaps all the more chilling and raw.

Lucy, I can’t even think about her right now. I’m mad about her life, how she ended up in that hell, and how it was all for nothing.. I’m mad because Lucy was a strong character and even though broken and at her wits end, she fought, she fought so hard. So yes, I’m mad, but at the same time… I can get into it, because like I said, it’s bitter-sweet.

I wish you could see me shaking my head, because I’m still very emotionally raw about this book. And as much as I wanted to put it down at times, I couldn’t. Because even though it was dark, it showed the evil that is out in this world. As much as this is fiction, this whole scenario, is happening right now, and that’s makes this read all the more heart wrenching and painful.

This book is a must read, and I highly recommend you get your hands on it. Because even though I know Lucy isn’t real, her story needs to be read, it needs to make you mad, angry and hurt. This book will break your rose coloured glasses.

I’m going to leave it at that, and unlike my other reviews I can’t leave my normal ending, because there is nothing happy about this book.

If would excuse me, I need to pick my heart off the floor.

Repressed (Ash Park #3) by Meghan O’ Flynn ~ Review by Liz Vrchota

Repressed (Ash Park, #3)Repressed by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy fracking wow! Repressed is another impressive chilling thriller from Meghan O’ Flynn. I must confess, after each of the Ash Park novels that I read by the ever talented O’ Flynn, I am more enamored than I was with the previous one I just praised as the best of the series. O’ Flynn really has the knack for drawing in the reader and holding you and your thoughts hostage long after you finish the last page. Each of the books could be read as standalones, but I would read them all and in order. For one, as mentioned, they are all great, but they do build in plot and stories, as well as have characters that we do get glimpses of in each of the books, and two, why not?? It is the perfect season and they are all available to scoop up and enjoy!

Repressed gives us the story of Curt Morrison. I always knew that there was more to Curt but I had no idea what was to come from him that is for sure! (No spoilers here though!) Though, as we follow him in his new life with his wife and adorable new daughter we begin to learn about some deep and dark demons that lay ‘repressed’ in his past. The case that Morrison and Petrosky are working on also becomes an overlying factor and everything Morrison has ever cherished will come into jeopardy. Will he be able to conquer his past demons and do whatever it takes to protect the ones that he loves now? Or will the past finally come to catch up to him?

This book touches on some difficult subjects, like the others have, but it is done in a way that makes the story flow. Every piece is necessary to the novel, and tells the story that the reader needs to fully understand all that is going on. Nothing is done without care to details. You can tell these are topics close to Meghan O’ Flynn’s heart. I personally cannot wait to get my hands on the next novel, which will be right after I finish this review. I think a storm is brewing outside too, perfect weather for an Ash Park novel!! Thank you so much for another amazing novel, Meghan O’ Flynn!

Releasing the Demons (The Order of the Senary #1) by L.D. Rose – Review by Chantelle Smith

Releasing the DemonsReleasing the Demons by L.D. Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, Wow, Wow! This book deserves way more than 5 stars!!

Releasing the Demons is Book 1 in The Order of the Senary series from author L.D. Rose. I cannot believe how incredible this read was. I was totally shocked at how captivating and compelled I was while reading this book. This author has created an incredible imaginative read, full of plot twists, incredibly lovable characters and a read that will last with me for quite some time. I was mentally visualising this whole read the entire time – I had withdrawals every time I had to put this book, but I love it so much I read it in one sitting.

This read was dark, thrilling, suspenseful, action packed and I loved every single page within this book. This read had you on the edge of seat with fear, anticipation and hope that they never found Blaze or Valerie. This was a brilliant take on the vampire fantasy world, it made a change for the main theme of the book to be surrounding hybrids they really don’t get as much recognition but after reading this and meeting Blaze and his brothers they have truly made their way into my heart, especially Blaze. After everything he has endured, I’m surprised he is still holding on and fighting. But everything is made even more difficult when. When Valerie enters his life its not in the best way possible – but boy oh boy does she make a lasting impression and change in Blaze, so much so he realises he does have someone more to love for. She makes him feel and he makes her realise that some ‘leeches’ are better than others.

This two have a (literally) hot connection that just continues to grow and their chemistry just continues to bloom. They are made for each other, they bring out the best in each other and you can’t help but love the way she brings Blaze’s walls down and show his vulnerability when around her.

I cannot wait to see what else it brought to this series. Who’s story we will follow next? But I will most definitely be hoping this isn’t the last we get of Blaze & Valerie’s story – as you can tell this is only the beginning.
