Fire & Ice (Spicetopia #3) by Phoebe Alexander

5 out of 5 stars

Fire & Ice is Book 3 in the Spicetopia series written by Phoebe Alexander and contains suspense, BDSM and other elements that includes intriguing and mysterious. These sweet and spicy books each function as standalones but you really should read al the books in this series in order. The characters are well written, and I love the banter between the main characters. We get to see the other couples from book one and two and what their up to.

This is Neve and Enya’s story.

Neve Romano, Director of Security, and Enya Moore, Director of Public Relations, have never gotten along. What will happen when they must work together to stop someone from sabotaging Spicetopia’s grand opening? Can they work closely together without killing each other? Will they find out who is behind the sabotage? Can these two have something between them and have a happily ever after?

You need to read this great book to find out what’s happening.

Ricochet by Kathryn Berla – Review by Tracy Manderson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ricochet by Kathryn Berla

4 out of 5 stars

Ricochet written by Kathryn Berla is the first book that I have read by this author. This is a science fiction young adult book with some great characters. This book isn’t usually my go to genre, but it seemed interesting. The plot was great if a little confusing in the beginning and the characters are well written and different.

This was an entertaining and very interesting story about a girl who can communicate with herself in parallel universes. I found myself thoroughly enjoying the actual premise of the novel when I wasn’t confused. It was original, and unlike anything I’ve read before.

This story revolves around Tatiana, and she is split into four versions of herself. Each version suffers from something like seizures, which are revealed to be tunnels between the girls so they could (potentially) visit each other.

Even though this was aa confusing story it was also a good story, so I happily recommend this book…

Falling For His Badass by Jessika Klide – Review by Tracy Manderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Falling For His Badass by Jessika Klide

5 out of 5 stars

Falling For his Badass written by Ms. Klide is the first in this series. This is a short story with a major cliffhanger….
The characters are well written, and you can see the sparks coming off the pages. The plot was great even though a little short I just loved it…
I read this book in one sitting I just couldn’t put it down.

Lizzy is tired of making the wrong choices when it comes to men, she trusts her best friend Tara to take her away for the weekend, She knows that if she wants an all-consuming love, she’s going to have to take a bigger risk to attract a different type of man.
Her panic button will be pushed, and before the first night is over, she will be Falling for His Badass.

In comes Brody Andrews (or otherwise known as BA or “badass”) is a military man to the core. He gets a quick peek of Lizzy at his brother’s house and must have her. In comes a Brody plan where they meet by chance. I’m not saying any more because the book is to short but.

Do BA and Lizzy hit it off? Can Lizzy overcome her panic attacks? Will BA show her she is worth the effort? Will Lizzy take the chance on BA? You will need to read this great book…

5 out of 5 stars

Matt’s Swirly world is the first book that I have read by Ms. Matthews and it was adorable. I read this short story to my grandchildren and they where enchanted with this story.
We deal with tantrums from my granddaughters all the time, so this book helped me when it comes to her tantrums. I do know the reasons my granddaughter has been through a lot this year, so it really helped me.
I will read more of Ms. Matthews books to my grandchildren.

Virtue & Vice (Spicetopia Book 2) by Phoebe Alexander

5 out of 5 stars
Please read books in order so you can follow along with the story line….
Virtue & vice is the second book in the Spicetopia series written by Phoebe Alexander. The characters are awesome, and I love the plot. This book contains BDSM and swinging and is hot hot hot. Why can’t adults have an adult theme park that caters to their needs. We get to see Cy and Jolie as they partake in an adventure with Moon and Katja the couple they met while away.
The creators of Spicetopia know adulting is hard. Bills. Mortgages. Parenting. Estate planning. Sometimes you just need to kick back and indulge your inner kid except now that inner kid has grown-up tastes.
Cy and Jolie have experience from the kids’ theme park Cy’s family owns. Moon and Katja bring technical and architectural expertise to the table. So, these two couples set out to create a world of adult fun in a slice of paradise called Spicetopia.
Can these four work together and build their dream world–while having plenty of adult fun along the way? Or will their dream end up being flushed right down the toilet?

I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to I start book three in this series…..

Sugar & Spice is the first book in the Spicetopia series written by Phoebe Alexander. The book started out slow, but I ended up loving this book, it is a little different from her other books but with the same flare we have come to expect from Ms. Alexander books. The characters are amazing, and the plot was awesome.

To force him to pull his weight in the company, Cyrus is made to go undercover to find the employee who is causing an uprising. But he finds The Red Velvet Queen and she opens his eyes to the troubles in Sweetopia will he choose his family, or will he do right by the employees of Sweetopia?
The Red Velvet Queen is really Jolie Cox and she a single mom who relentlessly struggles to make a living for herself and her sons.
They both met when they disguise what will happen when Jolie finds out who Marcus aka Cyrus is? Will she walk away with out listening to Cy? Will Cy give up on Jolie?
You will need to read this amazing book…. I can’t wait to read book two in this series.

The Men of Holmby Hills: Chase by Allyson Simonian

5 out of 5 stars

The Men of Holmby Hills: Chase, is the first book in The Holmby Hills series by Allyson Simonian it was also my first read by this author. It is a short story- and made for a quick and easy read. This was a good story it had some drama, a little mystery and some secrets. The characters are well written, and the plot was amazing.

Chase McDaniel is an actor and is Selfish, Self-centered, Arrogant. He also has money he ever needs; he finds a different woman to keep him company whenever he wants, and he seems happy. When a story pops up that Chase was with a minor, he denies it. The club he went to was a twenty-one and over club. The girl must’ve had a fake Id. Now Chase is worries about his image.

Carries is a high school teacher and she is taking the summer to filling in for Susan over in wardrobe and then she is going back to Texas. But fate has different plans for her when she starts seeing Chase when their relationship is on the fast track to marriage. Its not all rainbows and rose they have trouble in their marriage it seems like they can’t connect is it because they are from different worlds?

Can they move past their differences? Will Carrie for give him when the truth comes out? Will they have a happily ever after or go their separate ways?

I highly recommend this story and can’t wait to read Aiden…

My Life Series: Prequel to The Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone – Review by Tracy Manderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Life Series: Box Set: Prequel to Brothers of Camelot by Necie Navone

5 out of 5 stars
Ms. Navone out did herself with this series. The characters are amazing and well written, and the plot was amazing. The description of the surroundings and the detail of what Alless aka Alessandra went through is just amazing.
My Hidden life book 1: Alessandra, is the Princess of the Canzano crime Family, she was introduced to the dangers of her family’s world at the young age of six when a rival family left her bleeding and scared on her birthday. Her uncle now dedicates his life to making sure she is not only protected but that Alessandra will never feel helpless again in their world. All the while, trying to keep her feeling like she is just a normal young girl. She has to be better than any man around her. She’s the Family future. Can she handle the family and all that it entails?
Let’s, watch Alessandra in Part One of My Life series as she trains to be the heir to the Canzano Family the way her Capo her father wants. A life that she must hide from even her closest friends and family.
My Tragic life Book 2: She is 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. She is miserable. She has been training since she was six years old to protect the Family… a side of her that she needs to keep hidden. She must always appear to be the perfectly polished Princess, a ruse and title she really despises.
She gets no choice in anything, everything is controlled for me by her father, the Capo who is a tyrant when it comes to Aless. She wishes and dreams for the freedom to be HERSELF. When a rival Family strikes causing her life to be turned upside down, she didn’t think things could get any worse and then she learns how wrong she is and now she is forced to become her worst nightmare in order to protect the Family she wants no part of.
Her life went from being bearable misery to nothing short of Tragic.
My Free like Book 3: Duty. Responsibility. Family. Three words that form the gilded cage she lived in all her life. But she wants to escape no be the princess she wants to be an ordinary woman…
Freedom. Something most of the people on this Earth enjoy and take for granted. Something she’s never had. Something she want more than anything.
When she left for University, she thought her life wouldn’t be quite so tragic…Ha! She is now the Capo Donna, in charge of the Family and its businesses located in Northern Italy. But her tyrant of a father/capo is in a power struggle and it comes to a head when some of my closest friends find themselves caught in a dangerous situation.
In order to save them, she needs switch flip, in side of her the one she hate’s, in order to be what they need her to be to save them. The monster her Papa insisted she become, the one he can no longer control. The assassin. The side of her fears she will destroy her soul if she can’t escape from the Family…
As friends and loved ones begin finding their Happily Ever After, she knows it’s time to escape. They’ll all be fine. They have their One and Only. It’s time for her to be Free… so she can find her One and only….
I highly recommend this book

Devil’s Dilemma: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter #4) by Manda Mellett – Review by Tracy Manderson

Devil’s Dilemma (Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #4) by Manda Mellett

5 out of 5 stars

I really enjoyed Devil’s Dilemma book 4 in the Colorado chapter of Satan’s Devils Mc written by Ms. Mellett. The characters are strong and well written, and the plot was great it had me reading this book in one sitting. I also love how each book has a different storyline that’s unique on their own. There are a few twists and turns that I’m sure you will like I know I did…

This story started when Melissa meets a younger man named Skull in a bar. She fought his advances until she caved, and he dragged her into his world, and she found that she liked it. Loved the family vibe, how everyone would gather around to protect what was theirs.
Then one day he just disappears off the face of the earth. He’d pulled her in claimed her and, now he’s gone. The only explanation for him not coming back is that he’s dead.
Pyro thought Melissa was hot and perfect for him, but another brother claimed her, and a brother doesn’t mess with a brother’s woman. He steps up when she needs someone beside her. Held her when she needed a friend. That his brother was dead was something he’d help her accept. And once she accepts his death Pyro will move in and claim her for his own, we all hope.
I just love this series and can’t wait to see what Ms. Mellett has in-stored for us.
