Yearning Young (Burning Britely Book 2) by Deidre Huesmann – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Yearning Young (Burning Britely #2)Yearning Young by Deidre Huesmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yearning Young is book two in the Burning Britely series  by Deidre Huesmann. Braeden and Jeff’s story continues in this easy to read tale.

Braeden has a lot going on and struggles to work it all out and get a handle on his feelings. He fell for Jeff quickly and very unexpectedly, which has him reeling. His home life is difficult, so all of that together is a huge weight for a young guy to carry on his own. I really loved how the author described his journey, from falling for Jeff, to working out what his next move would be. The emotions were first love at its most basic and real. I really engaged with these characters, and fell for them even more than I did in the first story. An impressive story that was witty, funny and soul touching. 5 stars

Blade’s Edge: Satan’s Devils MC #10 by Manda Mellett – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Blade's Edge (Satan's Devils MC #10)Blade’s Edge by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blade’s Edge is book ten in the Satan’s Devils MC series by Manda Mellett. This author always pens such easy to read dramas packed full of tension and emotion. Not to mention hot headed men and the women sent to try them.

Blade is the enforcer for the Satan’s Devils MC. Used to using any means necessary to gain information, he is not prepared for dealing with a woman instead. Tash has secrets that could bring the club to its knees. It made for very interesting reading. The style in which the story was written was so easy to escape into.  I got lost in everything that was Blade and Tash, effortlessly and excitedly. A lot of stuff happened in this story, and a lot of emotions were observed. With a lack of respect for women, Blade did not win my heart totally, but the story itself was high quality, so all was forgiven. A fantastic story that was a fine story to disappear into for a while. 4 stars.

The Slip Series Collection by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Tracy Wilkin

The Slip Series CollectionThe Slip Series Collection by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Slip series is a collection of three extremely hilarious stories by ultra talented author Gwyn McNamee. They comprise of Dickslip, Nipslip and Beaver Blunder. They are highly entertaining and some of the best written books I have ever read.

Dickslip

The title of this book was the first tick in the awesome box. The author was the second. I enjoyed this story with wild abandon. A guaranteed 5 star author, I knew this was going to keep me immersed and invested for hours.

Rafe is hilarious from the get go, and Andy a force to be reckoned with. Individually, these characters shined and delivered elements of humour, attraction, dramatics and edge. Together they sizzled. From one chapter to the next, there was always a lot going on. Crisis after crisis, Rafe and Andy handled everything thrown at them with wit, clumsy finesse, and passion.

I was totally enraptured by this latest incredible read by Gwyn McNamee. An assured top quality story that has a bit of everything. Readers will want to add this to their to be read list. A definite five star story.

Nipslip

Nipslip is book two in the Slip series by Gwyn McNamee. me just say how much I adore this author. These stories are short, sexy, very funny, slightly mysterious and hugely dramatic. These stories captivate and impress me infinately. Gwyn McNamee is such a talented author and one of my favourite.

The leading lady doesn’t have a lot of luck when a wardrobe mishap befalls her. Tate was a witness and was immediately inrigued by this stunning woman. The story just evolves beautifully, like slowly blooming flower. But tuere was nothing slow about the heat and intensity between these two. The story started out fast paced and rocketed to the finish way too soon. I would love to have kept reading this incredible story. 5 stars.

Beaver Blunder

Beaver Blunder is book three in the Scandalous Slipup series by Gwyn McNamee. It is yet another hilarious and sexy short story by an edgy author that is not afraid to change it up and create stories that are unforgettable. There are so many facets to these stories it is hard to put into words just how powerful and entertaining they are. Each character is one of a kind, and even though the storylines highlight some of the more embarrassing moments in these characters lives, each one is unique and offer a reader so much more than the standard rom com. I cannot get enough of these types of stories.

Madeline and Owen kept me awake and dreaming them when I slept. These characters will stay in my heart and mind always. 5 stars.

A must read series that is side splitting fun and will leave you with everlasting fond memories.

Fortitude by Carrie Dalby – Review by Tracy Wilkin

FortitudeFortitude by Carrie Dalby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fortitude is a historical romance by Carrie Dalby. I was excited to go for a spin with this author, as I haven’t read her work before, and I am always keen to try something new and take a chance on the unknown and exciting.

Fortitude is a riveting tale set in 1898, and the leading character, Claire, had her work cut out for her. She went against the norm, in a somewhat volatile world. From having a Creole as a best friend and nursing the enemy, Claire went against the grain, not fitting into what was acceptable by society at the time. This story was so easy to read, so easy to relate to, so easy to escape into. I loved the way the author described her characters, the plot and the old style way. I love reading about the past, and this author’s spin on it was fantastic. An epic story that I totally disappeared in. 5 stars.

Burning Britely by Deidre Huesmann – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Burning BritelyBurning Britely by Deidre Huesmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Burning Britely by Deidre Huesmann is a quirky and cleverly written coming out story. The leading man is Jeff. Jeff is smart, small and sarcastic. His intelligence wont allow him to suffer fools. He has zero patience and comes off as rude and unfriendly. He doesn’t trust easily and prefers his own company than that of others. He falls for Braeden and the road to their HEA is a rocky one.

Burning Britely was a story that I absorbed in one sitting. Jeff was an extremely complex character, but underneath it all, he was just like the next person. Acceptance was important, but his tough outer shell would never allow him to admit that. I loved everything that was Jeff and Braeden. The blossoming love story was beautiful, and at times heartbreaking. A little of everything thrown in to make for a riveting read. I cannot wait to read more. 5 stars.

WTF, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah – Review by Tracy Wilkin

WTF, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of TransitionWTF, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

WTF, God?: Understanding God in the Midst of Transition by Michelle N. Onuorah is a story about the author’s personal spiritual journey and her relationship with God. It was honest, captivating and heartfelt. I think it would be hard to share this journey, as I believe one’s beliefs are so very personal, and it would be like bearing your soul to the world and for that world to have their opinion on the matter. It is a story that had me reflecting on my beliefs and my chosen path. In so little time, this author had me questioning everything. This story will make you think and will leave you grateful to have read such an honest and heartfelt story. 4 stars.

Coming Home: The Sequel to Flowers in December by Jane Suen – Review by Tracy Wilkin

COMING HOME (Flowers in December, #2)COMING HOME by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Coming Home: The Sequel to Flowers in December is written by Jane Suen. It is a fitting follow on from Flowers in December, and another great and riveting story.

Coming Home is a magical story of Connor and Mary Ann, Alana and Dottie. Loss, sadness, hopelessness all feature in their story. But love is a funny little creature. You find it the oddest of places, when you least expect it. Each character has there load to carry, and the author pens it out intriguingly and smartly. A great story to disappear into, with a cast that is easy to like, frustrating at times, always giving more to their audience. A quality story that just kept getting better. 4 stars.

Hazed (The Hazed Series Book 1) by Brittany Butler – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Hazed (The Hazed Series Book 1)Hazed by Brittany Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hazed, book one in the Hazed series is written by Brittany Butler. It is a young adult romance that deal with a few issues which is more suited to a mature audience. I was taken in by this story from the beginning. Taylor’s character intrigued me, but Hayze captivated me. I wanted to solve the mystery that was him. The author was brilliant at spinning his story, keeping me on the knife’s edge. He was an enigma that had me very intrigued.

Taylor and Hayze were a puzzle desperately begging to solved. I loved everything about this story. The good, the bad, and the mystifying. There were ups downs and everything in between. Having not read this author’s work before, I went in not knowing what to expect. A joyful thrill was what it was. It was also emotional and gripping. Hazed is a 5 star story that will stun and dazzle. And leave you gasping for more.

Happily. Ever After?: An Italian Relationship (The Italian Saga Book 6) by Gaia B. Amman – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Happily. Ever After?Happily. Ever After? by Gaia B. Amman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Happily Ever After?: An Italian Relationship is book six in the Italian Saga series by Gaia B. Amman. I read the first book in this series, but have skipped to the sixth one. Oh well, it states that it is a self standing book, so here goes. Slowly paced, this story was a great read, and ticked all the boxes for a quality, easy to read story.

Leda and Sergio like each other. Leda and sergio kissed. Leda and Sergio gives readers an entertaining, honest and full of ups and downs. A very realistic look at young love and all the problems young couples face and how they deal with the drama. These characters were easy to like, easy to relate to, easy to enjoy. Laughter, attraction, love is all set out, pretty and sweet, in the beautiful Italy, where romance is plentiful, and drama is endless. 4 stars.
