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 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: 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 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 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
LOVE on the LINE is book two in the Great Expectations Love Stories: The Graykens by Laurie Lewis. This is the continuation of Matthew and Mikaela’s story. Mikaela, on a mission to save Matt’s life, will go to any lengths for him. Their love only grew stronger through many challenges. They face many hurdles and struggle to overcome the odds. But their love always remains the one, constant and unbreakable.
Laurie Lewis is an author that tears at your heart, breaks it, mends it, amd fills it with bliss for these couples. Gripping and emotional, LOVE on the LINE was an unputdownable story, and one that I will never forget. 5 stars.
If the Shoe Fits is book number three in the Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. This series is dramatic, engaging to a reader, and an all round great read. It is guaranteed that this author puts a unique spin on a fantastic reading experience, and is almost always enhanced by these witty, and mesmirising characters.
Libby is a woman after my own heart. She loves shoes and there are never enough shoes to be had.

James may be the one to save the day who knows? Anything is possible in a Bea Stevens story. To find out, you will just have to read the book. 4 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 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 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.
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 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 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.
