#Review – The Dark Forest: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage #2) by Sarah Noffke

36274414

The Kingdom of Virgo has lived in peace for thousands of years…until now.

Azure’s world flips when she discovers her father is the emperor of Terran. Wait…was the emperor.

Now the two are prisoners in the Land of Terran.

Azure must escape and locate her mother’s soul stone. The virus that stole the queen’s magic is going after her very life, and the soul stone is her only hope.

Azure must save her mother. Create alliances with savage beasts. And win her people’s favor to keep the crown.

However, Princess Azure now has a taste for adventure. If being queen means she must sit on a throne, then to hell with that.

Welcome to The Revelations of Oriceran.

A magical world tied to Earth, and nothing like it.

*NOTE: There’s cursing in this book because these witches and wizards are just rude like that. If cursing isn’t for you, then this might not be for you.

This series is becoming a favorite. The characters are phenomenal and the world is amazing.  All the characters have such great quirks. I love Monet his addiction to Cheetos and his one liners makes him stand out.

Azure is a strong caring leader who is quick on her feet and is great at problem solving but with growing up around Monet and Queen Mother Sari I would expect nothing less. The way she makes her own rules and doesn’t follow past way is courageous. The pixie “Buzz Buzz” oh how I enjoyed watching Azure deal with her when she created disorder in Virgo.

This world has sucked me in and I want to know so much more about it and those in it. SO excited to see what Azure does next and where this story will go.

#Review – Whiskey Burning (Iron Fury MC book 1)by: Bella Jewel

36069282

In the darkness is where I first met him.
Alone at a water fountain, tears rolling down my cheeks.
Ready to give up.
From the shadows, his voice came to me.
Soothing. Comforting. Rough as the blackest night.
I didn’t see him.
I didn’t even know his name.
All I knew was he saved me that night.
He put my back on my feet.
And he kept me on them.
Every single time I needed him, he found a way to come to me.
My stranger of the night.
My dark warrior.
My name is Scarlett. You probably know me.
I’m America’s number one country music star.
I’m also the loneliest girl you’ll ever meet.
He’s as free as a bird. A nomad. Travelling alone.
Nobody to hold him back.
He holds the freedom I pray for every single day.
He shows me that life can be so much more than what I’m living.
When danger comes knocking, he’ll also show me a different world.
A world I never knew existed.
A world that both terrifies and fascinates me.
A world that goes against everything I’ve ever known.
A world of Iron Fury

Can I tell you how excited I was to see Bella Jewel was writing another MC series! She has such a way of writing hot MC guys and sassy women that keep them on their toes. This one was no different and I absolutely love Maverick .

Scarlett is the face of Country Music but when you have strict schedule and cannot be alone it can be stressful and confining. Scarlett manages to sneak away one night and hears a deep husky voice that was comforting to her. She thought she would never see him or know who he was but little did she know Maverick had other plans. She was drawn to the biker she following her bus. Then when she saw him and her concert and heard him she knew he was her mystery man from the fountain.

Maverick is a member of the Iron Fury MC trying to outrun his past and get his life back together. Then one night he hears the prettiest cry every that makes even his heart hurt and he has a new direction to follow for the time being. Even though he knows his brothers need him back at the club to handle all that is going down there. He found his new mission and it includes a few concerts watching the beautiful Scarlett.

The way these two broken soles melted together was solidifying. I enjoyed the twist and turns this book took me on. I was flying through this book the suspense and everything else had me burning through the pages. I absolutely loved seeing both sides of Maverick not only the strong alpha side by the sweet kind side too. I so need more of this story and find out what happens next. I am so looking forward to Amalie and Mal story.

A few of my favorite lines:

“What’s a girl with a voice like an angel and tears that are makin’ even my heart hurt, doin’ sittin’ out here alone? It’s not the safest part of down, darlin’.”

“Barriers don’t have to be objects, darlin’. Barriers can be simply your own heart. No matter how far you travel, or how many people you meet, none of it can penetrate if the barrier is around your soul.”

#WOTR #Review – Corps Security in Hope Town: For You (Kindle Worlds Novella) by: J.M. Walker

For You (Corps Security Kindle Worlds)

Brogan Tapp tries to be strong. Guilt and fear that the man she loves will fall within himself and not know how to find his way out, haunts her.

Coby Porter vows not to let the demons in his mind take over. He plans a trip to save his relationship, once and for all.

Hope Town, Georgia is the saving grace for their love, before the nightmares consume them both.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Coby Porter and Brogan are back for a great novella incorporating Harper Sloan’s Corp Security in Hope Town, GA.

Coby and Brogan are still working through everything they have endured. a little push from the one and only Dr. Santo’s has Coby on a mission. One he is keeping from Brogan who as every woman miss construes things a bit when he is gone and won’t tell her everything. Coby is trying to work on him and Brogan to get them back. What he is doing is so heartwarming and fives me the feel goods. I never would have expected Coby to do what he is doing but WOW makes my heart flutter.

Watching the interaction between Coby and the Corps Security family is fascinating. I loved seeing the connection Coby has with Hope Town and the military guys. TO see that Brogan was able to sit in the one and only Sway’s chair and get a scalp massage was high pitch squeal worthy.

J.M. Walker did a great job of melting her King’s Harlot series and Harper Sloan’s Corp Security together for this Kindle Worlds. She had my emotions all over the place for a novella she tapped into every emotion and hit them hard. Makes me want more of both series.

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.

#Review – House of Enchanted: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage #1) by Sarah Noffke

The Kingdom of Virgo has lived in peace for thousands of years…until now.
The humans from Terran have always been real assholes to the witches of Virgo. Now a silent war is brewing, and the timing couldn’t be worse. Princess Azure will soon be crowned queen of the Kingdom of Virgo.

In the Dark Forest a powerful potion-maker has been murdered.

Charmsgood was the only wizard who could stop a deadly virus plaguing Virgo. He also knew about the devastation the people from Terran had done to the forest.

Azure must protect her people. Mend the Dark Forest. Create alliances with savage beasts. No biggie, right?

But on coronation day everything changes. Princess Azure isn’t who she thought she was and that’s a big freaking problem.

Welcome to The Revelations of Oriceran.

A magical world tied to Earth, and nothing like it.

This is a wonderful new series and a new world. Sarah Noffke did a fantastic job of keeping me firmly implanted in the story while bringing this new world and characters to life. The characters are pronominal the banter and quick whit they have between one another is entertaining.

Princess Azure finds that she is about to become Queen but on her coronation day her family secret is revealed in a BIG way.  This flips her world upside down and in side out. Now Azure has to go to Terran where the horrid humans live to make an alliance but to do this she has to travel through the forbidden Dark Forest.

The creatures Azure, rather Princess Azure, encounters in the Dark Forest are fascinating. Some are there to help, some to protect, and some need help. The journey Princess Azure travels is one of wonderment.

I have to say Sarah Noffke has Enchanted me with this new series. Be warned there is a cliffhanger here but I know Sarah will not keep us hanging for long. I am ready for the next book. I need to know what happens to Azure, her friends and the horrid humans.

#WOTR #REVIEW – Crash and Burn (The Witness Series Book 6) by: H. D’ Agostino


Crash and Burn (Witness, #6)

Detective Mark Colby is used to being in charge whether it’s on the job, or in the bedroom. He knows the rules and follows them to the letter, that is until she steps into his station.

Detective Antonia Rossi has always had to fight her way to the top. Being the police commissioner’s daughter in a male dominated profession has always come at a price. When she’s assigned as Mark’s new partner, she knows she’s in for a fight. Mark’s reputation for dominance proceeds him, and he makes no effort to hide it.

Can duty override desire, or will it end in a fiery crash of wills? Sometimes the crash is worth the burn.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Mark, Mark, Mark what can I say. Mark and Amber have been together for a while and lets just say they are comfortable, argumentative yes, but their relationship has seem to come to a stalemate. Mark being the one to “fix” things decided why not get married. *shakes head* Just keep watching it is 100% a train wreck ready to happen.

Toni is Marks new partner and has always had to be better than the one before and the ones after because of who she was. She is sexy, strong, determined, and does not back down. Toni is going to give Mark a run for his money.
With the train wreck I mentioned above that happened between Mark and Amber. Mark finds himself playing along with Toni when she asks him to do her a favor. OH my she has no idea what she is in for that day. How can two individuals who are dominate as these two make this work? Someone has to submit at some point but who?
Mark turned out to be one hot sexy man. The connection Mark and Toni have is electric. I loved when these tow got together but when he had to interact with her family that was the best.
I love this series and cannot wait for the next one. It will be tough to read but so ready to hear Jenni’s story next.

#WOTR #Review – Invisible Warrior (The Protectors Book 11) by: Teresa Gabelman

Invisible Warrior (The Protectors #11)

Steve, the self-proclaimed Invisible Warrior, has not had a typical life. Trained by the VC Warriors, he still has to prove his worth, but with humor and sheer will, he refuses to give up.

In one afternoon, his life changes, as do the lives of three others. Steve Richardson has a serious choice to make between two women and someone who holds his heart like no other.

Goodreads

Amazon

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

I jumped into Steve’s book and enjoyed every second of it. Every time I think I know my favorite warrior Teresa writes another book. Steve is Steve crazy, fun and doesn’t know when to shut his trap.

I loved watching Steve grow form a boy to a VC Warrior like no other. He is still his funny crazy self but now he has someone he is responsible for and he will not let her down.

Mira makes one heck of an entrance lets just say bullets were flying and lives were about to change. There is so much going on in this book between curses, revenge, spells and mates being brought together.

The connection Steve has with Mira and her family is heartwarming. Then to watch the Warriors have to deal with some stinky situation was hilarious. On a side note Daniel OMG I love him his cuteness and his serious side too. This little guy is going to be something special…oh what am I saying he already is something special. There was a conversation between Steve and Mira about rollercoasters and man did my mind get flooded with wonderful memories at the mention of Kings Island.

I loved watching Steve grow from the crazy kid to the VC Warrior. Don’t get me wrong he is still Steve and finds a way to still get into trouble but when his protector side shows he will take on anyone including his brothers. I cannot wait for Roman’s story there is just something about that whip slinging Cowboy.

A few of my favorites:

It must be his call in life to make people laugh because that’s when he felt his best, even if they were laughing at his expense.

With the past hour, something significant had happened, and for life of him, he couldn’t figure out what the hell it was. He felt off and didn’t like it.

Her heart quickened its pace, her stomach squeezing painfully at what would never be, and still, that picture right there was something she wanted more than she wanted her next breath.

Steve swore tight then and there he was going to make sure she did anything and everything she ever wanted to do. That would be his goal in life.

Sloan had given him a gun with a silencer on it. He had been practicing and was almost a dead shot like Jill. Though he couldn’t shoot the balls off an ant…yet.

#Review – Sweet Disaster (The Sweetest Thing #4) by Sierra Hill

35150206

Kady:

My life is a complete and utter disaster.
One major screw up after another.
In other words – I’m trouble.

I attempted college, but made a mess of that scene, too. Chalk it up to yet another disappointment in my parents’ ever-growing list of Kady failures.
Deciding I needed an escape from reality, my best friend and I flew off to Europe, where we were going to have the time of our lives.

The only problem with that plan is that I ran out of money after two weeks, and now I’m stuck in Florence, Italy with no means of getting home.

See? Trouble finds me wherever I go.

Gavin:
All I ever wanted to do was play basketball.
It’s all I’m good at.

I bypassed college and went straight to the pros. I’ve been playing overseas in Italy for six months, gaining fame, fans and having fun.
There’s only one problem. I miss home. I’m not too big to admit I’m homesick for my family and friends.

But that all changed when I heard from Cade Griffin, a former college hoops star. He called and asked me to rescue his sister, Kadence, who’s stranded and alone here in Florence.

Seems easy enough, right?

Except for the fact that Kady Griffin is gorgeous, completely off-limits and a sweet disaster waiting to happen all over my life.

***SWEET DISASTER is a standalone novel and the fourth in The Sweetest Thing series. It can be read on its own or enjoyed with the other books in the series.

Goodreads

Amazon

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This is a wonderful addition to this series. It can be read as a stand-alone but if you have read the others you know a little about Kady. She’s Cades little sister and one thing is sure she doesn’t care for basketball or players especially after spending her entire life have to watch Cade play. Kady is a free spirit loves doing things her way and in her time however this tends to land her in trouble.

Kady finds herself on a different continent with little money, no ID and no passport. She does the only thing she can she calls her big brother to help her out. Although not happy about it Cade calls in a favor to a teammate who’s brother is in Italy to help her until she can get her passport and ID. Little does she know when she meets Gavin what is in store for her.

Gavin is a chiseled ball player with a great of gold and has a funny side. When he agrees to do a solid for his brother’s friend by taking in his sister he realizes quickly he has got his hands full. To Gavin Kady is OFF LIMITS no way can they hook up. It would cause too much drama between his brother and Kady’s brother. However, the feisty fearless and sexy bombshell living in his apartment may have other plans no matter what Gavin thinks.

The banter back and forth between these two was too funny. I was flipping the pages trying to figure out if they would hook up or would the disaster that follows Kady strike again. I so want more of this Basketball series.

A few of my favorites:

“Eyes up here, dude,” she snaps her fingers in my face, drawing me out of the sensual trance. “I know I’ve got a great rack, and my girls are rather eye catching if I do say myself, but now’s not the time. There’s work to be done.” I’ll admit, all I heard from her was rack and now’s not the time. Which translated in my sex addled brain means that there might be another time. As in not right now, but later maybe. Which give me some ideas.

I rub my thumb over my lips and feel the ghost of her warm mouth lingering. Damn, she even tastes like a peach. Who said apples are the only forbidden fruit?

Kady Griffin is a beautiful mess and has no idea the kind of destruction she leaves behind in her wake. Sweet disaster is written all over her.

There’s only one word to describe everything we’ve done and shared the last two days: foreplay. The easy banter we’ve exchanged the risqué encounters. And now the intense physical connection between us as our bodies move in time with one another. It’s built as unstoppable magnetic force, charging between us.

“Whoa there, cowboy. Don’t go throwing me off just yet. I’m not done with my ride.”

She’s perfectly uninhibited. Spunky and spirited. Kady carries an inner light that blazes so bright, it’ll either warm you from the glow or burn you form intensity of her heat.

Since writing and publishing her first book in 2014, Sierra Hill has found her creative passion in writing about the fictional characters that live in her brain, who constantly shout for their love stories to be told.

Sierra frequently indulges in unhealthy doses of reading, too much dark chocolate, and never enough coffee. She often finds herself traveling around the country to see her favorite musicians in concert and is an alternative music enthusiast.

Sierra resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband of twenty years and her long-haired, German Shepherd. She is currently working on her next book.

 

#DoubleReview #NewRelease – Day of Reckoning by: Chelsea Camaron

Title: Day of Reckoning
Series: Devil’s Due MC #4
Author: Chelsea Camaron
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 24, 2017
Cover Designer: Cover Me Darling

Time served for a crime he didn’t commit only provided many lessons learned. The domino effect of one person’s crime going unpunished cuts deeply and leaves a mark that can never be covered.

He’s no saint.

Jackson ‘Rowdy’ Presley did a dime, and he served his time silently. He could have brought down the real criminals, but instead he took the term and paid the price. Never have loyalty before the Devil’s Due MC, he finally has the new beginning he desperately needs.

She’s not afraid to call herself a sinner.

Peony Michele Forbes lives her life wherever the wind takes her. She walked away from her past to give herself a future with no restrictions. As much as she wants to forget who she it, others don’t want to let her disappear so easily.

However, danger follows her everywhere she goes.

Will Jackson see beyond his jaded connection to Peony and find there is more to life than revenge? When backed to the wall, will Peony let herself trust Jackson to be the one to save her?

Love, hate, anger, and passion collide as the time comes, and the devil demands his due.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

I am enjoying this second chance series. The connection these characters have is phenomenal and Rowdy and Michele are no different.

Rowdy lost his wife and freedom when he was wrongly accused and convicted of a crime. He pays tribute to his late wife in the most beautiful way. When he finds out that Michele may not be where he thought she was all these years but instead finds herself in trouble he is on the move to grant the Devil’s Due.

Michele not only lost a brother and her husband but also her freedom because of believing in the wrong people. She now finds herself in a world of trouble with no way out only praying someone will stay away and find her at the same time.

Rowdy and Michele had my heart all worked up and my emotions all over the place. From watching Rowdy giving the courthouse the big F-you and getting special tattoos to seeing Michele trying to get by and fly under the radar with some nasty criminals had my heart aching. But to see these two get their second chance was wonderful.  I felt bad for how naive and gullible Michele was at times and wanted to give her a good shake a few times. The harder Michele pushed the more Rowdy pulled. Once this man decided on something there was nothing standing in his way he was going after it and would hold on to it with both hands.  The Devil’s Due alpha men have walked away with my heart and I am ready for Deacon and Trapper’s books.

 I received this book from the author for an honest review.

 

Another great read from my Sister Wife. One of the things that I abso love about her books…the alpha man who will do anything for his love.  I love the theme of family and the fact that no matter how messed up they are *cough cough* Trapper, the family will be there.  Granted they will throat punch you when needed but they will stick beside you through thick and thin.

So every book we see our guy Rowdy riding through town to flip off the jail and courthouse.  Well, now we know why.  He got screwed by a really bad bad cop.  Luckily, he met up with the other guys and they got to help him semi recover but he will always be dead on the inside since his wife Michele is gone…or is she???

Poor Michele.  Being so young and a bit naïve she didn’t fully support her man.  I mean it’s her family against you and your man???  She caved and walked away from him.  Now it seems she has gotten tricked and got caught up in the bad stuff that got him killed.

Can I say how awesome it was when he first saw her again after all the years??  I loved that he just grabbed her and reclaimed her.  NO MATTER WHAT!!!  She is and will always be his heart. Now he had to do anything and everything to make this wrong right and take his woman with him.

Oh sister wife…..another great book with another tough, demanding alpha that all of us readers love.  But Trapper, Sweet Baby Jesus he is going to kill me!!!

How does Brandy L. Rivers do it every time I read a book I think this is the best one yet and then she writes another one.  The connection between Bran and Evangeline is like no other.  The side characters are amazing too.

Evangeline knows there is something between her and Bran but she just cannot give in to her feelings.  She has lived with betrayal, deceit, and abuse by the ones that should love her the most. Bran has set his feelings for Evangeline aside because of his love for his wife. Now three years after his wife’s death and no longing being able to deny the fact that Evangeline is his mate he acts on his feelings. Due to Evangeline loyalty for her sister she agrees to leave town on her and Bran’s first date to check on her sister. However, her father has other plans when she arrives and could cost her Bran.

This story grabbed me and drug me in making me want to find out more and more what was going to happen next. The world that Brandy was able to build with this was amazing. What wasn’t there to like there was werewolf’s, werelynx, dream walkers, witches, and more. Plus there were strong females, alpha males, fight scenes wow does Brandy have a way with these things. I have not found a series of Brandy’s that I do not like so far and this one is headed right to the top. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for me to read next.

A few of my favorites:

Sighing, she huffed. “I make my own destiny. I only want to get back to the man I’m falling in love

“I don’t need someone just like her. I need someone just for me. That’s all.”

And she knew, beyond a doubt, he would value her, worship her, make a life with her. He would ask her opinion, ensure her safety, protect her with his own life.

“Why me?” “So many reasons, my love. I’ve been drawn to you since we were kids.” “I was too afraid of our attraction.” He lifted a shoulder. “You aren’t now, and that’s all that matters. I’ll do everything in my power to protect you and show you all the things you’ve been missing all your life.”
