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

Pandora’s Price (Hart & Cole Book 3) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Pandora's Price (Hart & Cole Book 3)Pandora’s Price by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pandora’s Price is book three in the Hart & Cole series by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné. A dynamic series that captivates and titillates. A cast of characters that take your breath away, astound you and leave you desperate for more.

Darren and Luisa’s saga continues and the drama just builds, achingly tantalising, creating a nail biting intensity that showcases the brilliance that is in every paragraph. The characters are complicated, difficult, but simple in their base wants and needs. They crave the most simplest things. Want, love, acceptance, forgiveness, kindness, tolerance, understanding. The feelings these characters brought out in each other was so mesmerising, so passionate. I could not have wished for a more explosive drama. It was everything. 5 stars

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.
