Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Michael's HeartMichael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Michael’s Heart is a beautiful story that is so original and different than what I usually get lost in. It was a heartwarming story. It was a tale of anything is possible if you just open your heart and mind. There was so much that appealed to me about Colbie. She had her ups and downs. She had a gift and was finally able to to something with it. But then she gets a taste of heaven, and it is at this stage that for me, the author really turns up the quality content and delivers a unique twist to an unusual love story.

Colbie has trouble living in the present without Michael. Their story just kept evolving in such a profound way, it was tantalising. It takes a particularly talented author to be able to capture the very soul of each character so completely. Loro Thomas Harrington is a master at creating the seemingly impossible, without it becoming unrealistic. I thoroughly devoured their story and the experience was joyous and fulfilling. I recommend this book to anyone willing to take a chance on being totally enamoured by this colorful cast of eclectic characters. 4 stars.

Small Town Hero (Small Town Brides, #1)Small Town Hero by Kim Koby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Small Town Hero is book one in the Small Town Brides series by Kim Koby. A first time read by this author, and what a delight it was. Getting to know these characters was endearing and kept me thoroughly entertained and warmed my heart.

Rebecca, after discovering the ultimate betrayal, flees and ends up far, far from home. Ryan swoops in and despite her prickly disposition, helps her out of quite the pickle. They manage to get to know one another in a really short time and their feelings develop at warp speed also. They fight, they become closer emotionally. It is an epic tug of war on their emotions and it is a sight to behold. An absolute pleasure to witness.

I truly got swept up in the whirlwind they created. It was an incredible thrilling journey, and one I am so glad I read about. 5 stars.

The Boss by Abigail Owen – Review by Tracy Wilkin

The Boss (Fire's Edge, #1)The Boss by Abigail Owen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Boss by Abigail Owen is splendidly written tale of dragon shifters. My first time reading this author’s work was entertaining and oh, so memorable. I didn’t expect to love it quite so much. What a beautiful discovery! These finds are what reinforces my love for words and the immeasurable pleasure I experience when I come across such talent.

Finn and Delaney wholeheartedly captivated me. Their story was intriguing, mysterious and full of sinister characters, loyal friends and a smoking hot couple. The way the book evolved, was very engaging and difficult to put down. I hung off every word, waiting for the next drama to unfold. The longer the story went, the more involved I became. It was stunning to read. It is a severe understatement to say this story was fantastic. It provided so much more than I could possibly put into words. I want to read it again. Immediately.

The Boss was everything and more. Abigail Owen penned a descriptively striking story that has left me with precious and beautiful memories. A favourable one click author to add to my library. 5 wonderfully well deserved stars.

Give & Take (The Thorne Brothers Book 2) by Lee Kilraine – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers, #2)Give and Take by Lee Kilraine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Give & Take is book two in The Thorne Brothers series by Lee Kilraine. My first read by this author. It’s just the beginning of something beautiful. I was impressed beyond my wildest dreams. Elation at finding yet another epically talented author was an emotion that I became very familiar with. I don’t know where they get all this talent. My talent can fit into my pinky nail. I am forever thankful for the time, effort and heart that goes into these stories. I just can’t get enough of them.

Now about this mind blowing cast of colourful characters the endlessly entertain with this hilarious antics, amusing idiosyncrasies, and never ending awkwardness, attractiveness and sensuality. I was constantly laughing, but this story was so much deeper than what I could ever have imagined from the beginning, and gave me so much more than I could have possibly dreamed of. Wyatt was a deep and tender hearted man that shouldered doubt and insecurities. His family was his support and Rhia the very one he never knew he needed. Rhia had her own set of troubles, but was so seriously entertaining, I could read about her for years. On paper, they were polar opposites. In reality, there could not be a more perfectly imperfect couple. Give & Take was pleasure personified, and The Thorne Brother series is a must have addition to my library. 5 stars.

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot Book 1) by Necie Navone – Review by Tracy Wilkin

The Only One (Brothers of Camelot, #1)The Only One by Necie Navone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Only One is book one in the Bothers of Camelot series by Necie Navone. This is a new author for me, an author who is exciting and brings something new and addictive to my bookshelf. It was such a thrill to read and get to know the plethora of remarkable characters i could not help falling in love with. I hung off every word written, rejoiced every triumph, and mourned every loss. In other words, I felt it all! Necie Navone dragged a lot of emotion from me, the biggest being blissful happiness.

Fitz and Bella. What a pair. What a love story. I instantly became bewitched by their story. It was heartwarming, it was hilarious, it was passionate, emotional and deep. Their love began to grow early, and even distance could not extinguish the flame that smouldered between them. My heart was full to bursting, and the more their story evolved, the more I loved them. To be soul mates after so many years apart, and not once did their feelings for each other change, was an unforgettable experience for me. This will be a story I can reread over and over, as a love story like theirs never fails to move me beyond words and crave the next story. This style of writing never ages, as the story of love is eternally craved. 5 stars.

Georgia Pine (Southern Promises Book 3) by K.G. Fletcher – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Georgia Pine (Southern Promises #3)Georgia Pine by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Georgia Pine is book three in the Southern Promises series by K. G. Fletcher. I think I am in love. I beyond adored this story. Every word I read, I loved. As I got to know Jessica and Tim, the harder I fell. Their story was so sweet, I may need a trip to the dentist!! The quality just shone, and the thought and preparation was evident. K. G. Fletcher gave it all, and it showed magnificently.

Jessica has her hands full, and with her impending divorce imminent, she is on emotional overload. Tim entering her life when she was at her lowest mortified her. But this woman was made of strong stuff, and with love and support, could handle anything life threw at her. Tim could not have been more perfect for her. The heartfelt goodness and dedication to Jessica and her daughters was heartwarming, and his love for them new no limits.

I could not put this book down. Countless times my kindle fell to the floor as I was exhausted, but I just could not stop reading. It was that glorious. The story, 5 stars. The storyline, 5 stars. The way it made me feel, immeasurably satisfied and happy. The author, 5 stars. Readers simply must read this terrific story.

The Sound of Love (The Sound Series Book 1) by Maria Watts – Review by Tracy Wilkin

The Sound of Love (The Sound series #1)The Sound of Love by Maria Watts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Sound of Love is book one in the Sound series by Maria Watts. As a new author to me, I went in with an open mind. I am so glad I did. The writing style was enchanting and really, really difficult to put down.

Nina and Chris. What to say about my feelings for these two. Put simply, frustrating yet so totally enjoyable. It was like stepping back in time to my teenage years. The same newness, the same uncertainty, the same blind innocence, the same narrow minded attitude, the same emotions, the same struggle with interpreting these unfamiliar amd scary feelings. I wanted to shale these two one minute, and hug them the next. It was a very realistic insight into a teenagers first love. Their lack of maturity and dramatic interpretation on just about every situation made this impossible to be away from. Their desire for one another was palpable, but inexperience made them unable to cope with these complex and overwhelming emotions. But heavens it was so good, I was a bit bewildered by just how much I loved this story.

Maria Watts is the ultimate in first love romance, and I am so very excited to read more of this series. 5 stars.

Summer Fling by Tarrah Anders – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Summer FlingSummer Fling by Tarrah Anders
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summer fling is a quirky little novel by Tarrah Anders. This story intrigued me from the title, and just got better from there. The first chapter begins explosively and steamy. That sets the tone for the rest of the story.

Beguiling characters and hilarious secondary characters, together with the electric storyline provided me with a deliciously wonderful few hours of reading. Emma and Royce just had that instant chemistry that was immediately evident. So palpable, I felt like I had a front row seat to bliss.

It was hot, it was heavy, and it was masterfully written. A great escape. 5 stars.

The Kitty Committee by Kathryn Berla – Review by Tracy Wilkin

The Kitty Committee: A Novel of SuspenseThe Kitty Committee: A Novel of Suspense by Kathryn Berla
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Kitty Committee is a suspenseful tale written by Kathryn Berla. It was mysterious and entertaining. The story was a little slow going for me, at first. But once I
I got into the swing of it, it was really enjoyable.

Grace and her not so nice group of friends, The Kitty Committee, share a secret. A secret that has played on Grace’s mind for year, leading to unrest and unfulfilling relationships. It was great witnessing it all unfold and how it ended. Many moments of suspense and intensity made this novel hard to put down. The dynamic of women and their propensity to bicker and put each other down instead of propping a fellow girl up, was evident in this story. An engaging story that would suit lovers of the twisty and unusual. 4 stars

Phoenix Rising (Fortis Security Novel Book 7) by Maddie Wade – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Phoenix Rising: A Fortis Security Novel Book 7 (Fortis Security Series)Phoenix Rising: A Fortis Security Novel Book 7 by Maddie Wade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Phoenix Rising is book seven in the Fortis Security Series by Maddie Wade. I like this series with each new instalment, and have to say that Daniel and Megan’s story is the best so far. It was edgy, packed with action and bursting with passion and danger.

Megan and Daniel face a rough road, and the attraction he fights is both entertaining and frustrating. Maddie Wade draws out the intensity expertly and maddeningly. Burning with the relentless urge to know all the mystery surrounding their story, I turned the pages way too quickly. I did not want their story to be over. I could have read about them for days more. A story bursting with heat, sexiness and energy, Phoenix Rising is a must read. 5 stars.
