#WOTR – #Review – Pursuit of the Raven (The Union book 3) by Shawn Reilly

Pursuit of the Raven (The Union Series #3)


Asher Lake, a wolf in his ani-shift form and Keeper to his people and the protégé’s left in his care, knows what he wants. He wants to reform the Union, become a better man, and test fate. Determined that Elle Ison has a place in his life, he sets out to discover just what that place is—while pursuing the one thing that might open doors to provide answers, to the curse hanging over his life, namely his stolen medallion.

Elle Ison, along with Asher’s brothers, Ari and Nixon, share two specific things in common—a love for Asher—and a desire to keep him alive anyway they can. Even if that means setting off on a fool’s quest or making certain sacrifices to keep him that way.




This isn’t some fairytale where the hero wins….This is the absolute truth about this series! Time is not on Asher’s side. And this is proving difficult for the entire Lake family. I have to be honest. At the beginning of the series I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Asher or not. Due to him being so closed off trying to protect himself he is a bit socially inept. But in this book we really see him evolving and now I don’t know what we would do without the one and only Asher Lake (and his mints). Actually all the characters are evolving. Asher wants to be a better man, wants to do good things for the Ani-shift community but there are others that are going to stand in his way. You can tell he wants to love too. Oooh how he wants to let it all go! At least this is what I read into it anyway, haha! As he starts to trust and opens up to be trusted all hell starts to break loose. All of the Lakes share a love for Asher and they will do anything to keep him alive. There are secrets that are being discovered. But with answers always come more questions. The new questions and the decisions that are being made will continue to keep you on the edge of your seat and trying to figure out the next move. Look out too because this one will throw you for a loop!

When it seemed like I was only an F away from flunking out of the sixth grade, a retired schoolteacher took me under her wing. After some tutoring and testing, she informed my parents that the reason I was having trouble in school wasn’t that I was dumb but instead dyslexic. When my stepfather heard this, he decided to take me to a used bookstore with the belief that the best way to improve my reading skills was to read. Some of the books were hard to get through at first, but with his encouragement, I refused to give up. We made many trips to that bookstore, and I especially loved the science fiction and fantasy sections. Then one day, after complaining about the ending of a particular book, my stepfather told me that if I didn’t like the books that I had been reading, then to write one myself—so I did.

My first attempt resulted in a horribly written western when I was fourteen, staring a cocky gun-slinging cowboy by the name Curt Calhoun. Curt along with his seven brothers, who all shared C names in common, may never have seen the pages of a book, but that was the day I started writing, and never stopped.

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

Mountain of Truth: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage, #3)


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.






Azure has been accepted as queen and many people believe in her. As if the rift between the humans and witches isn’t getting better, the humans have poisoned the wells and streams of Virgo. Many are sick now and Azure has to get into action. Instead of handling the issues in the traditions of past queens she takes it upon herself to go on a quest to help her people. She has to find a cure and continues to be proactive in trying to help her people. She and her quirky group embark out on yet another journey. She must travel to the Mountain of Truth to get her questions answered by the only witch that has them. The trip includes many wacky issues and some new alliances. The only problem is they have to make it to the top of the mountain but this particular mountain is filled with magic and illusions. It’s a true testament to their friendships. They are also on the search for the Book of Branches. This portion of the trip really opens Azure’s eyes to the ways of many of the other people of Oriceran. She is embracing the fact that she is different and unique. Her heart is really there for not only her people but all of Oriceran. The series will keep you on your toes with all the crazy banter between this quirky group. It’s the perfect mix of emotion, fun, and fantasy. Loved it!

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

The Dark Forest: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage, #2)


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. 






What is going to happen next?! That is the question. Azure and her father, who is human and was the emperor of Terran) are imprisoned for treason. Azure has to find her mother’s soul stone or her mother is going to die. In the first book she made some new, quirky friends on her quest through the Dark Forest along with her best friend Monet. With the help of these guys she and her father are able to escape with her mother’s soul stone. Now the next part of her journey begins. Along her travels back through the Dark Forest she is foraging new alliances with other unlikely groups. She is faced with immense amounts of diversity and her true colors are shining through. She really is someone that wants to help all peoples and creatures of her planet but she wants to be proactive. Watching all of these characters develop has been amazing and quite inspirational. The characters definitely have their own personalities and each of their quirks have made this journey so much fun to follow. Monet, by far, has to be one of my favorite characters in this series so far. He can be such a baby but is super witty and really does have Azure’s best interests at heart. The banter with Monet will keep you laughing and rolling through this amazing adventure!

#Review – Dysphoria and Grace: The Night Blind Saga #1 by Christina L. Rozelle



“How?” She swipes at a few stray tears. “How do you . . . not let it break you?”
“You look it straight in the black, evil eyes and tell it you won’t be broken so easily. And you get up and keep moving. It’s what I’ve done my whole life, with everything. Whatever it is, you let it make you stronger, okay? Because the alternative road is an even darker one, I promise.”

Twenty-year-old orphan, Grace Vincent, is damaged beyond repair. She’s had a shit life, and with the state of the world, things aren’t getting any better. With crime on the constant rise, and all licensed civilians age sixteen and up armed, it’s no wonder she has a pet name for her 9 mm, Suki.

While attending the slummiest community college in Selam, Texas, Grace still lives at home with her adoptive parents and their “miracle” baby, but only for a few more months until she graduates and they buy her a new car. She smokes and drinks a little too much, loses herself in her music, and to keep things interesting, she’s falling hard for her cute and sexy best friend, Eve. (Who knew she liked girls?)

But when the government imposes Martial Law, requiring civilians aged twenty-one and up to be vaccinated in an effort to eradicate violence, and things don’t go as planned, Grace is left to navigate a frenzied world while wrangling difficult realizations and regrets. With nothing else to lose, a decision must be made—fight and live, or surrender and die.

When Grace has lost all hope, two chance encounters prove there are secrets in Selam, Texas, lies about how the end happened, and hope for her yet, despite the insanity in her screwed-up mind. The world may have ended, but Grace’s new life has just begun.
“You can’t break someone who’s already broken. This, I know to be true.”

*Content Advisory/Trigger Warning/Notes*
Dysphoria and Grace/The Night Blind Saga is a dark apocalyptic romance series with some very steamy, sometimes rather dark F/F scenes, M/F scenes, and other mixes (later books in series). In these books you will find a buffet of language, gore, drug use, violence, assault/abuse, and a bunch of other stuff that could scar you for life. If you’re not willing to take that risk, please read ‘safer’ books. If you don’t ingest your literature occasionally (or often) on the edge, gritty, in the dark, and/or possibly in a random stairwell, this series may not be right for you.
*Recommended for readers 18+
*Not recommended for those with PTSD (though the main character herself suffers from PTSD, so… your call)
*Guaranteed HEA, no cliffhanger. 😉
*Book 2 releases this summer, and book three releases in the fall. There will be six books in the series, with the remaining three books due out next year. To be notified as soon as they become available, sign up for my newsletter here:
*If you have any questions about this series, or if you’d like to give me ungodly amounts of money for any reason at all, feel free to email me:
*If you’d prefer gritty, but cleaner (no sex), check out my best-selling YA Dystopian Scifi Horror series, “The Treemakers Trilogy.”




Oh the moon and stars! What an epic journey! This is definitely not what I expected. Be ready to be wrecked, and I mean this in the best possible way. This is a twisted ride into a new age zombie apocalypse. Grace is our main character and boy, has she had a past. This makes her extremely likeable and relatable. The setting is intense from jump. There are drugs, partying, witchcraft, and zombies…I mean, what more could you ask for? But lets be real for a moment. Grace has experienced hell growing up. She has come to terms and feels she is stronger for it. Her best friend is put into a similar situation. Grace is there for her but then all hell breaks loose. Then things get real. They are fighting for their lives, her little brothers life, and a new found friend, Gideon. And nothing slows down. The story is extremely action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I can’t really say anything else about the actual story but I literally contacted this author halfway through the book to talk about what happened. I was a mess reading this….but it was totally, absolutely worth it. Don’t let this discourage you. Once I hit this bump in the road the story just got better and better. I felt like I was right there and her shoes. This is an epic page turner and has made it to the top of my favorite reads. I. Can. Not. Wait. for the sequel. Bring it on! I am so ready!

#Review – Beneath The Skin (A College Obsession Romance #2) by Daryl Banner

Beneath The Skin (A College Obsession Romance, #2)


This is the second book in the College Obsession Romance series. This book is a standalone but has recurring characters from the first book.

They call me a player, but really I’m a lover.
I fall in love seven days a week.

Give me a few minutes and I’ll charm my way into any woman’s heart. Give me a few hours and I’ll have her flat on her back, headboard dented, panties on the lampshade, and begging for more – guaranteed.

Until I’m knocked off my feet by Nell, the bangin’ art school chick with the killer bod.

No, it isn’t some love-at-first-sight kind of thing. In fact, I hate how she looks at me with those sharp, gorgeous eyes and I’m tripping over my feet, my swagger lost.

What is it about this woman that drives me crazy?

She deflects all my advances. She doesn’t laugh at my jokes.
She makes me feel like I’m the joke.

Now, she’s got her hands on a new art project.

I’d rather she had them on me.

**** If you haven’t read “Read My Lips” – the first book in this series – don’t worry: the FULL novel is included with your copy of Beneath The Skin! PLUS, Read My Lips contains a *bonus* epilogue exclusive to this Kindle edition that you won’t want to miss. ****

The College Obsession Romance series centers around a group of friends and the relationships they form during their time at a small-town Texas school. They are angsty, steamy new adult novels with HEAs and NO cheating. Although they are obsession-themed romances, there are no stalkers or psychos!




This is what happens when the player becomes the played! Not intentional by any means but Brant is the player….at least that is what everyone says. He thinks with his second head all of the time. But when he is caught in a tricky position by Nell, he all of a sudden can’t get her out of his head. The interest in other women leave and he his swagger has vanished. It is completely hilarious seeing Brant trip over himself trying to get and keep Nell’s attention. Nell is the tortured artist who decides to give Brant a whirl. She tries to do what she can to scare him off but Brant doesn’t learn and keeps coming back for more. These two characters are completely different but the antics and shenanigans that they get into will keep you wanting more. Then again, opposites attract. The characters complement each other in an amazing way. The perfect love/hate relationship. As they get to know each other we get to see a completely different side to each character. The best thing about these characters and the story is that you feel that you are right in the story and you can relate to what each one is going through. I found myself smiling and laughing and the next minute my heart strings were being pulled. Bravo, Daryl Banner! You did it again! Looking forward to the next story.

#Review #NewRelease – Broken Wide Open by Susan Griscom

Broken Wide Open Front 1-24-17

A new stand-alone Romance from award winning author, Susan Griscom.

When your heart is broken, sometimes all you need is a gentle smile.

Grace Davidson didn’t have the smoothest childhood, but now, years later, she’s ready to start her new life with her amazing new husband—until she discovers his infidelity…with her best friend. Hurt and betrayed, Grace takes off alone for the exotic resort where she should be spending her honeymoon, only to realize it’s as lonely as it sounds. Until her hunky next-door neighbor says hello.

Leo was just a man Grace met while enjoying her un-honeymoon. They became friends, but that’s it. Yet even after she returns home, she can’t get him out of her head. Too bad she’ll never see him again.

Starting over in a new town after finding her dream job, Grace suddenly runs in to Leo in the last place she expects. But is he the man she believes him to be? Or is her heart in danger of being broken wide open?

Broken Wide Open yellow fonts 1-24-17


This standalone is anything but broken. Right from the beginning you are pulled right into the story. Grace is a strong woman that experienced true heartbreak. She goes to Bora Bora alone trying to get herself together. She meets Leo in Bora Bora. Fireworks are exploding but things don’t go the way you would expect. Then back to reality. Grace is getting back on her feet after the wedding that never should have happened. Grace runs into Leo and the tension is palpable. There is always something in the background that is trying to keep them apart, but the attraction is incredible. As the story continues you feel like you are going to continue on with a predictable happily ever after. But then you are hit unexpectedly with a twist. When this happened it clenched my heart. The raw emotion that you take from these characters is moving. Then I started questioning whether the outcome of this story was going to be what I wanted. It was anything but predictable and is an absolute must read. The spin is perfectly flawed. It’s exactly what you need for an incredible ending.

#Review – Monster Mine, Fear University #3 by Meg Collett



I, Sunny Lyons, am chasing my best friend’s ghost.

Or at least I thought I was until Ollie calls me on the phone and tells me to come to Anchorage, Alaska. We find her in a renovated warehouse surrounded by halflings and Hex, her father and the greatest aswang warrior who has ever lived.

While trying to protect Ollie from the people who want to use her as a weapon, I stumble across a secret the halflings will kill to protect—a secret that could save the man I love. I may be the Cowardly Lyon, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to protect my friends—even if it kills me.


My name is Ollie Volkova, and I am not broken.

Though my friends may say otherwise after I spent three weeks with a sadistic madman. They think I’m crazy, but when a monster called the Manananggal surfaces on the outskirts of Anchorage, my father offers to tell me about my mother in exchange for my help in hunting down the winged creature. It’s a deal I can’t pass up. Not when my mother’s past is so important to my future.

But the more I learn about her, the more I discover about my monster’s soul, and when my father reveals the final, darkest truth, the decision I make will change the course of my life.


*Warning: Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.*




Truths and lies, twists and turns…Fate. Ollie was kidnapped and tortured. Her friends are on a never ending hunt to find her, to help her. Turns out that Ollie has reunited with her father who she learns isn’t all the monster that everyone believes him to be, at least that is what she is trying to figure out. She learns so much about her mom and how her parents came to be, why her mother left, and why her father keeps fighting. Sunny is with Luke and Hatter looking for Ollie. Ollie reaches out to them and they come to the sanctuary that Ollie is at.

So many demons…Luke is dealing with the truth about Ollie being a halfling, Hatter is dealing with his manic episodes, Sunny is dealing with trying to protect everyone, and Ollie is putting her pieces back together.

The story goes back and forth between Ollie’s and Sunny’s POV. You are totally immersed in this story. Ollie is struggling with deciding where she belongs. With her father, Hex, and the halflings or if she needs to go back to Fear University. The lesser evil, right? They are all faced with major decisions, they fight with themselves and their demons to do what is right.

The story is jam packed with…with everything. Action, love, and all around badassery. There are so many warring emotions that you can’t help but to feel like you are right in the middle.

The Fear University series is one of my favorites and the author did not disappoint with Monster Mine!






Meg Collett lives deep in the hills of Tennessee where the cell phone service is a blessing and the Internet is a myth of epic proportions.

kellys review

Before you start, grab your tissues and get ready for a rollercoaster of all the feels! First, you must read the novella, Feel Me Break. Unexpectedly, Nick saves Chloe by being in the right place at the right time. Neither of them could stop thinking about each other and out of nowhere they see each other again. Fate? Maybe. But a lot happens to each of them since that one meeting that changed their lives forever. “Disappointments, crushed hopes, regrets, guilt, loneliness…” Two years is a long time…Chloe has to go back to the one place she has been trying to stay away from…Home. Then they meet each other again! This is where things get messy. Both have lots of secrets. Many things that they don’t think they can get any help with. Both are punishing themselves for events that were out of their control. Slowly their lives unravel and the undeniable attraction cannot keep them apart.


“Everything I wanted was within my reach but instead of reaching for the stars, I got burnt by the sun and came crashing down.”


“It’s like the brightness of a kaleidoscope surging, the lightness in the bones when soaring high in the sky, the warmth of the first ray of sun that kisses your skin, a swelling symphony that can mend broken hearts. A feeling that’s giddy, complete , baffling and aware, thrilling and comforting ; a kind of love that soaks deep inside your bones, and lights fire to your soul and you feel it inside and outside you all the time.”


I have to be honest, I don’t usually go for this type of story but it is one of my favorites of all time. There are so many different things going on in the story. A lot of it hit home for me and made it all the more real and touching. These two are a definate must read. But take my advice and be ready for the feels because you are going to experience it all!

#WOTR #Review Girl Departs Three, Part One (Spoken For) by Suzie T Roos




Zach and his family made it impossible for Tatum to be his girlfriend. Nigel made it oh-so-easy for Tate to move on. But the shock of seeing Zach again, of finally meeting his mobster family, and even coming face to face with his fiancé, convinced Tatum more than ever that Nigel was the one for her.


Tatum knows Zach still dreams of one day sharing his life with her, but Nigel offers her his life now – no dreaming necessary. And while Zach spends a month entertaining the fiancé that has been forced upon him by his family, why shouldn’t Tatum take her relationship with Nigel to the next level?


When Nigel betrays Tatum, her heart is broken. What once was clear becomes dark. She finds herself by Zach’s side yet again, needing him in a way she never imagined.


Zach or Nigel?


The decision isn’t easy because Tatum has learned the hard way—


Choices last a moment. Consequences last forever.

kellys review

OMG! I don’t have words right now! Sooooo….In Girl Divided the author leaves us with a huge cliffhanger and this picks up exactly where the other ended. Perfect! So I pick up the book and am immediately engrossed by the story and BOOM! Chaos! Tatum is confronted by Zach and is more or less forced to go to a family dinner with his “fiance” who is a real… you know what. Tatum is trying to keep Zach at bay and convince herself that Nigel is the safe and best choice. Well, that is until we find out what Nigel has been hiding. Our perfect Nigel is not so perfect. Naturally, Zach is there to help Tatum when one thing leads to another and she and Zach are back together. Officially unofficial. Soon enough everything seems to be going the way it should and another curveball is thrown. Whew! Then things just keep hopping at this point. I have no way to tell you about this story other than to tell you to go read this, and now! If I tell you anything more about it then I will give it all away. Again, Tatum is playing with FIRE! HOT FIRE! Then the end happens and smacks you in the face! Suzie T Roos has absolutely captivated me. You have my attention and yes, I am on pins and needles waiting for part two. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!!

#WOTR #Review Girl Divided Two (Spoken For 2) by Suzie T. Roos




Life was supposed to get easier…


At least that’s what Tatum had hoped. New school year, great boyfriend…and things with her and Zach were supposed to be wonderful. Fairy tale wonderful.


They aren’t.


Zach’s overbearing family controls his every move—and worse, they want to control Tatum.


Now Zach is pressuring her to ‘speak for him’, which means she’ll not only be committed to him but also his mob family. Where’s the guy she fell in love with? To make matters worse, her friends introduce her to Nigel, the new guy who is more tempting than Tatum wishes.


So which will Tatum give in to…coercion or temptation?

kellys review

5 stars from this girl! What is a girl to do when she has an overbearing jock ex (absolute horrible person), an Italian mobster boyfriend, and a hot Brit that all want you, one way or another? Tatum is living every girls nightmare of a dream. In this installment we continue Tate’s crazy life. She is being pressured to “speak for” Zach from his family. All Tate wants is to be with Zach but she feels like she will belong to the mob if she does “speak for” Zach. When push comes to shove they are torn apart by unfortunate circumstances. Tate meets Nigel. Oh Nigel *sigh* the hot Brit that gives Tatum a crazy case of the butterflies. She decides to move on and give things a try with Nigel but things continue to get crazy. Kyle is back and is as crazy as ever. Zach is in Italy and desperately trying to get back to Tatum. And Tatum, she is falling for Nigel. Secrets continue to surface and Tate is right back in the middle of trying to figure out what is right for her. Tate can be rather naive but what girl isn’t somewhat naive in high school? You have to fight for what you love and want but Tatum is playing with fire. The author leaves you with a huge cliffhanger so be ready because I finished this and immediately started the next. Oh yeah….I am hooked!
