Fierce Emotions (Marcy Series Book 8) by Linda Burson – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Fierce EmotionsFierce Emotions by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fierce Emotions is book eight in the Marcy series by Linda Burson. The way this author has of weaving a love story is one that is hard to turn away from. Hard to make last. Hard to reach the end. Hard not to crave more. All of the characters are complex and their personalities are contrasting, yet vehemently complimentary. I disappear into this type of novel.

Marcy seems to have everything she wants amd life is going ok, then she discovers something disturbing, which is deliciously mysterious. The story unfolds, and there are more than enough moments of passion, reflection and dramatics to have a reader’s eyes rolling in ecstasy. I fantastici contribution to a wonderfully addictive series. 4 stars.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Immigrant: An Italian in America (Woman Scientist Novel) is book one in The Italian Saga by Gaia B. Amman. Such a clever author who adds excitement, adventure and edginess to every story written. Reading a story by this author is like a lucky dip. You are never sure of what to expect, but you know it will be a thrill.

The journey continues for Leda. She is bound for America, on a quest for a cure. But as per usual, things change, and Leda is swept up in adventure, competitiveness and the unknown. This story continues from Leda’s childhood, where readers witnessed her grow and tackle each new challenge with sass, enthusiasm and awe. This story was the ultimate escape and one I thoroughly recommend. 4 stars.

Problematic Love (Rogue Series Book 8) by Lara Ward Cosio – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Problematic Love (Rogue Series Book 8)Problematic Love by Lara Ward Cosio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Problematic Love is book eight in the Rogue Series by Lara Ward Cosio. I have missed so.e books in this series and would recommend reading all the books before to maximise the reading pleasure this author provides. The story was still amazing even though I was slow on the uptake. The masterful way this author serenades a reader with the moving and tantalising content is enticing and addictive.

Daniel and Amelia err on the side of unethical. They cannot deny the inevitable pull toward each other, so they don’t. In theory, they should not ever be. But the reality is the love they share is undeniable. Their passion is uplifting, their connection deep. Their story was everything. 5 stars.

Squall Line (The Inland Seas Series Book One) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Squall Line (The Inland Seas Series Book 1)Squall Line by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Squall Line is book The Inland Seas Series by Gwyn McNamee. I just adore the way this author weaves a story. Excitement at every turn of the page. Adventure every day. Dramatic adrenaline packed events at each chapter. Passion in every paragraph. Complex characters with intriguing personalities evident from the first words. Contentment in the whole, entire package.

War and Grace. They meet in extenuating circumstances, they endure each others company because they have to. They fall for one another because they have np choice. They are inevitably drawn to each other. They love with intensity, passion and desperation. Their love should not be. But it is. And I am so thankful they fell. A brilliant and captivating story that will enrapture you and bewitch you. 4 stars.

MaddJax Series, Boxed Series Set, Book One & Book Two: A Second Chance Stepbrother/co-CEO Romance by Deborah Ann – Review by Tracy Wilkin

MaddJax Series, Boxed Series Set, Book One & Book TwoMaddJax Series, Boxed Series Set, Book One & Book Two by Deborah Ann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

MaddJax Boxed Series Set (Book 1 & 2) is a Second Chance Stepbrother/co-CEO Romance by Deborah Ann. I cannot recall reading this author’s work before, and was delighted at the great storyline and always dramatic twists to the story. Maddison and Jaxon were meant to be together. But with them being step siblings, things were a lot complicated. The author stretched this out with intense determination. Frustrating and baffling at times, the intrigue, drama and theatrics should be commended. They kept me riveted to the pages. I could have shaken some sense into Maddison at times, but overall she was a fun, edgy and modern classy woman suppressing her darkest desires. Jax, on the other hand, was an open book when it came to his feelings for Maddison. He was in your face, brutally honest, and sexy all in one built package.

A fantastic series that flowed easily, extravagantly and effortlessly. A must for lovers of the forbidden. 4 stars.

Impact (Twisted Hearts Love Story #4) by Autumn Sand – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Impact (A Twisted Hearts Love Story book 4)Impact by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Impact is a Twisted Heart Love Story by Autumn Sand. This story pulled the heartstrings, that’s for sure. Manny grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Done things just to survive. Hardened himself because he thought he was not deserving of happy. He was on on a path of self destruction, and it broke my heart to witness the struggle within. His love was endless. He just had to realise his self worth.

Impact left me with a heavy but elated heart. Manny’s story was moving heartache. It was also beauty. Intense beauty. So much happened. Then it ended. Was not ready to reach it, but was thrilled to capture the whole entire brilliance that was his story. 5 stars.

Wild Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel by India Kells – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Wild BastardWild Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wild Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel by India Kells is a novel fraught with danger, energy and impact. Reading it was to experience all the feelings mentioned in the story. To feel the very essence, the deep depth of each character, was an amazing thing to behold. I am bewitched with India Kells spin on words. I visualised Isabel and Kai, their many friends, and their exciting actions. This is as interactive as you can get without being in the story. I was that invested that I needed a moment to recuperate, re-energise, and reflect on the goodness that is these characters. This story was so crazy, I wanted to be there. Reading it is the next best thing. 5 stars.

Next Door Knight (Man’s Best Friend Book 2) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Next Door Knight (Man's Best Friend #2)Next Door Knight by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

  • Next Door Knight is book 2 in the Man’s Best Friend series by Nicole Flockton. As this was my first read by this author, I was going in unaware of the style, rhythm or pattern of this author and her work. It was a great joy to discover the story was exactly what I love about a romantic love story. The ones that are hard fought are the best!!! And it was a struggle for Kerry and Caleb. Both had damage that was evident in the way they carried themselves. But perseverance, persistence, patience and a bone deep connection and attraction would prove to be undeniable. Add in the furry little friend factor, and that is what typically goes into a quality, 5 star story. It was an experience to watch these two, who had endured so much, find each other and be able to open their hearts, minds and lives so they could bring out the best in each other. A beautiful sight to behold. 5 stars.View all my reviews

Until Fools Find Gold (Providence Gold Book One) by Mary B Moore – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Until Fools Find GoldUntil Fools Find Gold by Mary B. Moore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Until Fools Find Gold: A Providence Gold Series and Until Series Crossover by Mary B. Moore, is a brilliantly told story that I became obsessed with. I was consumed by these characters. My heart broke, then mended, my tears were plentiful, then I would laugh hysterically. A rollercoaster  of emotions felt is putting it mildly. I was totally caught up in all that was Luna and Noah. This couple shredded me. The made me whole again. A tumultuous affair that touched my heart indescribably and entirely. Having not read Mary B. Moore’s work before, I went in with an open mind. And then it was blown away. Stories such  as this one will never cease to thrill, impress and humble me. They give so much more than you could ever anticipate, and they leave you ready for more, but with such a sense of fulfilment and contentment, you almost need a little lay down to recover from the emotional ride you just survived. You know you have something special whenever the first page is turned, and that is a feeling like no other. 5 stars.

Man with the Mafia (Man With #2) by Debra J. Falasco – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Man with the Mafia (Man With, #2)Man with the Mafia by Debra J. Falasco
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Man with the Mafia by Debra J. Falasco is a story that simmers at the start, only to end in a blazing, hot finale. This is my first taste of this author, and what a delicious treat it was.

Vincent Manetti is a hot, italian mystery. Deirdre Collins is a sassy broad that has endured much, and gives more, despite this. Jer love of life was not extinguished, and Vincent was smart enough to see the beauty that was all hers. This story was intense, intense, intense. The build had my heart tripping and my nerves taut. I honestly can say it was a splendid read. This author is one I will revisit. The story was delivered flawlessly, dramatically, and honestly. The characters entertaining and believable. I could not get enough. 5 stars
