#review – Mountain of Truth: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage #3) by Sarah Noffke


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

Terran has gone too far, poisoning the wells and streams of Virgo. Queen Azure must act fast in order to save her people from a deadly virus that steals their magic.

Only one witch knows the cure to the virus and no one knows how to find her. 

Azure and her ragtag crew set off for the Mountain of Truth in hopes of locating Mage Lenore, the oldest witch alive. They soon learn the problem isn’t finding the old witch. It’s surviving each other on the mountain.

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 is a problem, then this might not be for you.



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

This story starts where The Dark Forest ends. Phillip poisons Virgo’s water to weaken the witches and warlocks and taint the crops. Queen Azure and crew finds themselves traveling to the Mountain of Truth to find Mage Lemore and the Book of Branches to save Virgo. This will not be easy as the Mountain of Truth has some of its own obstacles for the Queen and her motley crew.

Sara does a great job of introducing us to new characters. SO enjoy seeing all these characters growing and each one is gaining a place in my heart. Oh my the little unicorn is one of a kind. As always Monet adds that extra comedic relief.

Sara has a way of pulling every emotion from me while reading her books and this was no different. Now I need to read Land Of Terran to see what will happen next.

Sarah Noffke writes YA & NA sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian. She is the author of the Lucidites, Reverians, Ren, and Vagabond Circus series. She’s been everything from a corporate manager to a hippie. Her taste for adventure has taken her all over the world. If you can’t find her at the gym, then she’s probably at the frozen yogurt shop. If you can’t find her there then she probably doesn’t want to be found. She is a self-proclaimed hermit, with spontaneous urges to socialize during full moons and when Mercury is in retrograde. Sarah lives in Southern California with her family.

“It’s you.” I stand up from my chair and do a full perusal of Lilah’s body. My eyes dart down to her belly…her pregnant belly. I meet her eyes, expecting to see anger because of how I left her that night, but instead I see a flicker of something subtle before her face goes blank. “How are you?”

The muscle in her jaw ticks as she walks around me to the table and sets the folder down. “Mr. Meyers, I’m Delilah Mackenzie, the office manager. I need you to fill out these forms and then return them to the basket outside of my office. I’ll also need a copy of your insurance card, private investigator’s license, and driver’s license. Carrie can help you with that. Any questions?” She rests one hand on her belly and the other on her hip.

I don’t remember her being this sexy, but I can’t think of that now. “Is that…my baby?” Sweat dots my forehead and my pulse races. Throw me into a war zone and I’m cool, calm, and collected, but waiting to find out if I’m her baby’s father has me ready to freak out.

Lilah—no, Delilah—looks at me with fire in her eyes. “No, it’s my baby.” She’s out of the conference room, slamming the door behind her faster than I can say, “boo.”

I slowly lower myself into the chair and rest my head in my hands. It’s my baby, I know it is. The timing is just right for when we slept together.

That had been the most fun I’d had in a long time— the sex was phenomenal, and yeah, I knew she wasn’t that experienced, but I hadn’t had a clue how young she really was until I woke with her curled up against me. She just looked really young—too young for me once I came to my senses.


#Review – Blood & Loyalties – by Ryan Michele


A Mafia Romance

Family meant everything.

Good, bad, right, wrong, legal, illegal—none of that mattered when it came to family. Family was and always would be number one.

Catarina Lambardoni stayed on the legal side of the family businesses by running Lambardoni Enterprises. Professionally, she was beyond successful. In her personal life, however, she was not, having just walked in on her boyfriend cheating on her.

Jag Maratelli, the boss’s right hand, worked extremely hard to sustain his position in the family and honored it with his life. When he was summoned to the East Coast for an unexpected meeting, a chance encounter with Catarina and one look into the fire within her made him a very determined man.

The chemistry between the two scorched hot, and Jag had been with enough women to know Catarina was something special, something he couldn’t allow himself to walk away from. Life had other ideas, though, when a betrayal in the family sent him two thousand miles away from her while danger lurked closer than anyone realized.

Would their connection be strong enough for both of them to pursue more?

Or would people and events from the past and present make that choice for them?



I don’t read many mafia stories but this one had me hanging on needing to know what’s next. I love strong female characters and Catarina is about a fierce as they come. I also love strong take charge males and Jag is that and so much more.

Catarina Lambardoni is the daughter in one of the mob families. They are ruthless with others and loyal to their family. Mess with one you get them all. Catarina runs Lambardoni enterprises with her cousin which is one of the businesses that run on the legal side. We first meet Catarina when she takes care of her boyfriend well exboyfriend now because of his actions. She proved she didn’t need her brothers, dad or uncle to take care of things for her. She did a bang up job on the DB.

Jag Maratelli runs things for the Lambardoni’s in California when he is called to the east coast for business. While there he meets Catarina and his world is tilted. He never had a woman make him react the way Catarina did.

Can they survive with his business in California and hers on the east coast? Will his past and her families past be the death of them?

The insta-love was amazing the twists this book had kept me wanting more. The ending WOW never saw that coming. Great story line that kept me hanging on. I truly would love to hear Kiera’s story but I totally understand.

Ryan Michele found her passion in bringing fictional characters to life. She loves being in an imaginative world where anything is possible, and she has a knack for special twists readers don’t see coming.

She writes MC, Contemporary, Erotic, Paranormal, New Adult, Inspirational, and other romance-based genres. Whether it’s bikers, wolf-shifters, mafia, etc., Ryan spends her time making sure her heroes are strong and her heroines match them at every turn.

#Review – Hot Fur The Wolf – by Jessie Lane


Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But you’re my mate,
So please have my baby.

Werewolf Brock Newcastle’s biological clock is ticking, and his inner wolf is howling. He wants pups, and he wants them now. The problem is, no matter how hard or how long he’s been looking, he hasn’t been able to find his mate. He’s almost out of hope … until the night he finally meets her.

Autumn Gray is part of the notorious gray coven of witches. She has been trained since birth to be the next head witch, and duty comes before all else. That means she will have to enter a marriage of convenience to a stranger—a powerful warlock. But one trip to the nightclub Hot Fur is enough to throw those plans out the window. Because suddenly, she has a six-foot wall of sexy werewolf wanting to claim her as his mate, and she’s very, very tempted to say yes.
What’s a witch to do? Choose her coven or love?
Warning: Hot Fur the Wolf is a short and sweet novella that will have you wishing for your very own wolf shifter. Enjoy!



Brock Newcastle is a wolf on a mission to find his mate and have pups of his own. He had been a wolf without a pack for so long looking for his mate. Brock was ready to settle down and he didn’t want to leave this area.

Autumn Gray is the next leader of the Gray Coven of witches. She is being forced into choosing a warlock for her husband before she takes over. Only problem was she didn’t want to just marry anyone and hope it worked out she wanted to marry for love and have a family.

What is a witch to do when she finds herself face to face with a wolf that is claiming her? Does she follow her heart and let this hot wolf claim her and walk away from her family and duties or does she give up on her dream of a loving family?

This was a quick insta-love story was good. I was able to finish this in one sitting. I wanted to know how things were going to turn out. I loved that there was no drama just love.

#WOTR18 #Review – On A Whim by J.M. Walker


I’m in hiding.

As a bestselling BDSM author, I know all too well the danger of letting people get too close.

I’ve spent my entire life keeping people at arm’s length, until her. Kiki Smith is simply supposed to be my new cover designer, but before I know it, she starts breaking down the walls I’ve worked so hard to erect.

She’s unlike any woman I’ve ever met and before I’m even aware of what’s happening, she consumes me from the inside out.

There’s just one problem… I have a secret, and I’m afraid that once she finds out what I’m hiding, my barriers will once again slam back into place.



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

This is a quick little read but packed full of hotness, secrets and some laughter.

Kiki is a graphic designer who designs book covers for authors. she has a great career and a wonder family. However, because of her small family she is guarded, protective, and not willing to put her heart out there again. really she has the greatest friend a girl could want. Chaz is her BFF and he only wants the best for Kiki. He had me cracking up in this story. OMG “wet bread” What Really Chaz (i cannot even if you want to know you will have to read it).

B.Vesper is looking to cover his books and he is going to picky. He contacts Kiki to take on this project. B puts Kiki in contact with his cover model/PA Bo. Bo and Kiki end up covering more than just book covers and Bo slowly starts to bring Kiki’s walls down. When Bo reveals he is keeping a secret and has been lying to her can she forgive and learn to trust again?

I loved these people not just Bo and Kiki but also Chaz and the twins. They know how to have fun and support one another as BFF’s should. I enjoyed Bo and the BDSM aspect in this story. Seeing Kiki respond and submit to Bo was entertaining. I liked Bo and Kiki and would have enjoyed reading more of them and of course Chaz too.

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 – PowerChain, Power House Book #1 by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

PowerHouse (Power Chain Book 1)

No one denies me. Especially her.

She dismissed me.
That was her first mistake.
She thought I was a nice guy.
That was her second.
She had hope.
That was the final straw.
I am Onyx Blake.
I’m a powerhouse in an ugly underworld only found in her nightmares.
She’s going to learn quickly, I’m not the man to let anything go …
Including her.

Authors Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele team up to push beyond the boundaries, crossing a line into a deep, dangerous, and forbidden world. One where no one escapes, even if they beg to.

This is the Power Chain Series – a four book series of interconnected stand-alone romances.
Series reading order:
Power Chain
Power Player


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

Talk about a powerhouse team that is Ryan and Chelsea. I was blown away with this one. The plot twists were some of the best I have seen in a while.  I never saw any of them coming and just WOW great job ladies.

What is a girl to do when day goes from bad to the unthinkable?  Torryn thought losing her job was the worst thing that was going to happen to her that day until she barges into her sister’s home and finds things just got a whole lot worse. Torryn learns real fast what happens when you dismiss Onyx Blake.

Onyx is the boss who has three others at his side. They are fierce and unforgiving. They may push each other but together they are a chain that no one can break. Onyx stakes his claim to Torryn after her mistake of dismissing him. Torryn is not one to back down and will stand her ground. Only down side is that Onyx is boss and what he says goes no matter what. Torryn has a few things to learn one of which is Onyx is in charge at all times, all must listen and listen closely to him or there are consequences.

The push and pull between Onyx and Torryn is something else. The heat between these two is like an inferno. I absolutely loathed Onyx for who he was and the way he treated Torryn but by the end I my heart softened toward him. Torryn’s spunk, stubbornness and defiance won me over. I also enjoyed Dane, Pax and Garrett and cannot wait to hear their stories.  I usually am drawn to the quiet brooding guys but Pax tugs at my heart. Then ending Oh Baby I cannot wait for the next one. This book was dive in and never look up I mean really who needs food and potty breaks.


USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

#Review – Taken By Rebecca Brooke

Title: Taken
Series: Traded Series (Stand alone)
Author: Rebecca Brooke
Genre:  Contemporary/Suspense Romance

Release Date: February 22, 2018

Kill her or don’t kill her
One job. I had one damn job: Eliminate Marcello, leave no witnesses.

I should kill her, but I can’t. Except letting her live may cost me my life.

Only one choice left. Lock her in my basement until I figure out what to do. I’ve never questioned myself before.

Until her.

She’s been Taken

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

I enjoyed House Rules and Traded but I think I liked taken even better. I have been waiting for Brock because I have a soft spot for the quite brooding ones.

Brock had one job go in take care of it and leave no loose ends. One problem he didn’t count on was her. He now has a choice to make be loyal to his family and take care of loose ends or protect her and lose everything even his life.

Isobel is known for her evil ways. However, she is a survivor and a strong willed woman. She will not back down to anyone. Isobel is one you hate then you find out why she is the way she is.

The back story on both Brock and Isobel are rough ones. The chemistry these two have is explosive. Watching Isobel and Brock show a different side was amazing to see Brock go from brooding and almost cold hearted to sweet and caring then to see Isobel’s strong willed spirt and fierceness come to the surface to take back her life and what is hers was amazing.

This was action packed and fast paced that had me sucked in needing to find out what was going to happen next. What I enjoyed was the twist I never saw coming had me on the edge. I truly cannot get enough of these men.


Rebecca Brooke grew up in the shore towns of South Jersey. Writing has always been a love for her, as well as reading. She loves to hit the beach, but always with her kindle on hand. She is married to the most wonderful man, who puts up with all of her craziness. Together they have two beautiful children who keep her on her toes.

#Review – Darkest Hour (Iron Fury MC #3) by Bella Jewel


From the second you’re born, the shaping begins.
Who you are.
Who you’ll become.
Where your life will lead.
What kind of heart you’ll have.
If you’ll be good, or bad.
From your very first breath, those around you influence everything about you.
I was influenced by the worst. By a monster. A cold hearted, soulless man.
The devil himself.
But I got away.
I started fresh.
I reshaped my broken edges to resemble something just a little normal.
Only now, my past is catching up with me.
My demons have returned.
And they’re back with a vengeance.
The only protection I have is a Motorcycle Club.
I helped them. Now they’re helping me.
With a large hit on my head, I’m hustled into the mountains with one very broody, very angry, very gorgeous biker.
He has a mission. A secret bigger than even mine.
And he wants the blood of the monster after me.
He’s been assigned to protect me.
He gets on every nerve I have left.
The tension between us is high.
And we’re stuck alone.
In the middle of the wilderness.
Things are about to get…interesting.


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

Bella did it again she had me flipping these pages like they were on fire. I could not put this down.

Charlie did not have a wonderful loving childhood. Losing her mother at a young age and having the devil for a father had her trusting no one. She is now running scared from her past. After she helped Iron Fury they agree to protect her. Only problem is they assign Koda to protect her.  These two are like oil and water both stubborn, strong, and refuse to let someone in.

Koda is the VP of Iron Fury MC and a brooding man who seems angry at the world. He finds himself the protector of Charlie. Both Koda and Charlie are hiding secrets from their past. Can they survive what is coming after them?

This is an action packed fast pace book that sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go. I had to know what was going to happen next at every turn of the page. My heart hurt for everything Charlie went through and for Koda’s past. I loved how strong Charlie was after everything she endured she could have broken her but she refused to give in and give up. Love how Charlie stood her ground with Koda. The tension between Koda and Charlie was unbelievable. Could Mason and Koda make a scene any hotter? I cannot wait to read who is next. I am so ready for the next one already.
