 Welcome to Friday everyone , I really hope everyone is staying warm on this frigid cold day . Today we are going to review a new series by Rachel Rawlings . INK IT OVER  ( a Touch of Ink novel )

                             BOOK BLURB 


Adeline Severance leads a dangerous, magical double life.

Tattoo artist by day and warding witch by night, Adeline uses magical inks, a tattoo machine, and the help of her best friend Lars to permanently imbue spells of protection onto her clients. Thanks to the Magistrate's greed and failure to protect its citizens, her services were in high demand.

But when Nicholas Marks walks through the door of her tattoo studio looking for an appointment, one of Adeline's wards isn't the only thing he's after. Forced into working for the Magistrate, he's been tasked with bringing her in.

With her cover story blown, Adeline has two choices: Run as far and as fast as she can, or stay and fight. Though she’s not ready to give up the only life she’s ever known, putting her trust in a traitor may end up being the worst decision she's ever made.

                      MY REVIEW 
     Welcome to SOMETHING TO INK ABOUT where Adeline works as a tattoo artist by day but when needed she does some very special tattooing . She is a warder a very special witch and very rare . Seeing as most of the warders have been killed by the Magistrate . things were going good until the day Nicholas walks into  the tattoo shop and her life. With her cover story blown out of the water she has two choices run or fight and if she fights can she trust the man that walked into her shop and is a traitor . 
  This is a new set of characters for this author and I must say Adeline is kick butt . She is sassy and no nonsense . She does kind of have a little bit of an anger issue that does come out through out the book . I love that she is a tattoo artist, cause really there aren't many books with female tattoo artists .They are usually men so Adeline is a nice refreshing read 
 Lars is oh lets just say he is all alpha male and Adeline's best friend . He takes care of her and is actually like the angel / devil on her shoulders . He keeps her safe and only wants what is best for her . But I think there is more to him that the author hasn't told us . He is sweet but really has an attitude some times . 
 Now lets talk Nicholas , I seriously don't trust this man at all . He just seems shady to me . He is the nephew to the Magistrate that is after Adeline so really do you know what side he is actually on . He may be tall and good looking but there is something about him that you just can't put your finger on . Is he really good or is he just playing Adeline . You decide . 
    This is a fun filled story that takes us on an adventure . The author has crafted a cool story that has wonderful characters and a really good story line.  There are witches and magic ,intrigue and a little bit of romance. I must say though it did take a bit for the story to get going . I felt like the first few chapters just a little slow . Once you hit chapter 4 it takes off and you are taken on an roller coaster ride . Over all I really liked the story and the characters . There is a cliff hanger at the end and I hope the second book comes out fast cause I really want to know what happens . So if you want a good witch story that has a kick butt tattoo artist this is the book for you .

  Good Wednesday all , hope everyone is staying warm and toasty with all this cold weather . This is a good time to crawl under a blanket and grab a good book . Like THE ENCHANTED ONE ( a Fae worlds tale ) by Linda Thomas Sundstrom

                            BOOK BLURB 

There are Dragons on the Emerald Isle...
An unexpected inheritance from a grandmother she has never known takes Teryn Clark to Ireland, where a land of Fae magic and shadows lies beyond a misty Veil, and a broody, shape-shifting neighbor is so much more than he seems.

                       MY REVIEW 
     What do you do when you get a unexpected inheritance from a grandmother that she never knew in Ireland . That's what has happened to Teryn Clark . When she realizes the land of the fae lie just beyond the veil. With a brooding neighbour who is more then she realizes . When she finds the land of the fae and falls for the hunky neighbour who is a dragon . Will they find their happily ever after . 
   The characters are sweet and well written. You get to meet fairies and elves  and some dark creatures also . Oh and there is a dragon shifter . Yes Aedan is a dragon shifter . He kind a makes me want my own dragon . All the characters in the book are very well written and complex . Teryn and Aedan are such great characters . They are good on their own and really great together . 
    This book is a great read for an afternoon, wrapped up in a quilt with a cup of tea . The author paints a magical picture of what the land of the fae would be like .  There is adventure , some danger and of course romance . It has all the charms for a great afternoon read . The author takes us on an adventure and I hope that the author makes a series with these characters .  So check it out for a great afternoon read .

Books to curl up with: HAPPY MONDAY ALL

 Good Monday all today we are going to review a new author to me L.J Shen and her book THE KISS THIEF .

                            BOOK BLURB 


They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

                          MY REVIEW  
     Welcome to the world of wealth and privilege . The world where the rules are followed to the max and when it comes to love there are rules that can not be broken . Oh so thought Francesca Rossi , nineteen and ready to marry her childhood sweetheart . Angelo who is the son of a fellow mobster . Until the night a man stole her kiss and her life away from her over protective family. Will Wolfe and Francesca survive the missed cues and the fighting against each other , to let each other in to their hearts and fall in love that they know they are in . 
     When I started reading this book I really couldn't connect with Francesca . To me at the beginning she came off as a spoiled little rich kid . That has been pampered and sheltered her whole life . There were moments I really just wanted to turn her over my knee and spank her . But as I read the book I realized that she is stronger then she lets on . She is a fighter and will do everything in her power to help those she loves . Even if he is too block headed to realize it . 
 Wolfe Keaton well he is a man's man , and bent on revenge. To take down all the made men in Chicago . When we meet him he is oh so arrogant . There are times I just wanted to slap him hard across his smug face . But just like Francesca there is so much more to him . We see that there is a deep hurt that is in his heart . As you get deeper into the book you see him change and realize that love is good and being part of a family is good . He becomes the man that you could fall in love with very easily . I did like these characters as I watched them grow . They were good characters by themselves but together they were on fire . 
 The other characters are diverse and very well written .You see arrogance and denial all the way through the book . The one other character that really got to me was Francesca's mother , she is the biggest person in denial in the book . She goes through so much in the book you want to hug her and tell her everything will be ok . 
   This book has so many twists and turns you will be reading all night long . The author takes us along for a roller coaster ride with lots of feels . Trust me there are so many emotions running around in your mind when you read this book .  I will admit that the big age difference had me bothered at the beginning ,but it does disappear after awhile and you forget the age difference . The romance between the two main characters is explosives , raw and emotional. You will love them and hate both of them at the same time . The author has a way of ripping out your heart . smashing it to the ground and then picking it up and repair it .  I took a chance on this book when I heard about it in a book club . I am so glad I did , I got sucked in and couldn't get out until I was done . So if you want a great story that will pull you in and keep you there until the end check it out . You will not be disappointed .

Welcome to Thursday

  Good Thursday morning all , today we are going to the highlands of Scotland and the first book in the newest series by Suzan Tisdale .  SECRETS OF THE HEART  (book one of the Maccallans and Randalls series .)

                           BOOK BLURB

Widowed clan chief Connor MacCallen prays fervently for a loving wife and children, as well as peace for his clan. As blessed as they are with abundant crops and cattle, they are threatened by the generations' old feud with the Randalls. Connor must find a way to stop the feud from turning into war.

Ostracized at the age of nine as the daughter of a drunkard and thief, Onnleigh has lived a lonely existence. With no friends and no hope of having a family of her own, she has resigned herself to a bleak future. Until one day when one of her clansmen starts to visit. She learns too late that he is neither a man of honor nor integrity, nor one who should be trusted.

Connor doesn’t put any faith in wishing wells, fairies or ghosts. But to appease his grandminny, he makes a very special wish: for a loving wife, children, and peace for the MacCallens.

When Onnleigh overhears Connor’s wish, she makes the most difficult decision of her life. As poor as a church mouse and uneducated, she can’t give him peace. But there is one thing she can give him.

Will Connor be able to stop the violence before it destroys all that he values? Will he find someone to love again? And will Onnleigh ever find a place to call home?

                             MY REVIEW 
   This story truly brings out all the feels . Onnleigh is an outcast all because of her father , the daughter of a thief and a drunk . She has been living alone with out friends . Until the day a man cam to charm her but he was not noble all he wanted was a cad .  She didn't know what to do until the day she over hears the wish that Connor's wish at the wishing well with his grandma . She does something that will ever changer their lives forever . But like all great love stories there are those that will do every thing to keep them apart . Will Conner and Onnleigh get their happily ever after 
   I absolutely fell in love with the characters in this story , Onnleigh is such a sweet  woman . She has been through so much in her young life . You really want to wrap her up in a blanket and hug her, telling her that everything will be ok . She is sweet and kind and a little bit naïve in ways of men and what a family is suppose to be like . As you read into the story with the help of others in the clan you see her grow a back bone and start to blossom under both Conner's love and the love of his family. Conner is a sweet man who has had a lot of hurt in his life . He his chieftain of his clan and wants peace . He is strong and oh so sexy but he does have a heart of gold . He brings out naughty thoughts . Trust me when you meet him you will swoon. I love these two characters together . He pulls the best out of Onnleigh and she brings out his soft and protective side . 
   I sat down and started reading this book I was instantly hooked . You are transported back in time to the highlands of Scotland , where men are kilted and real men . Women are strong and don't let anyone push them around . This is a sweet story that does have some violence but I will say you will be screaming at your kindle towards the end .  I also cried ugly tears and giggled my way through this book . The authors way of writing will suck you in and keep you reading until the book is done . Some may call this a clean read but it doesn't take away from the love that you can feel coming off the pages for Conner and Onnleigh . Can't wait to read book 2 in the series . So if you want a sweet read add this one to your winter book challenge . You will not be disappointed in the least

 HAPPY RELEASE DAY  today the third book  in the Web of Sin series by Aleatha Romig . Lets dive into PROMISES

                            BOOK BLURB

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity continues with the epic conclusion of the all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Learn the truth behind the secrets and lies.

Promises is book three—the epic conclusion—of the acclaimed Web of Sin trilogy.

                      MY REVIEW 
      In the third and final book of the Web of Sins series is full intrigue and conspiracy theories .  There are bad guys and evil guys that are even worse then the bad guys  Sterling and Aranea are in the middle of it all. The walls are starting close in and secrets are coming to light . Will Aranea and Sterling survive what is going to happen and will they get their happily ever after. 
   I simply adore these characters . I must say that Sterling has really grown on me . He is the best of an alpha man and loving protector . He is the best of both . We really see him open up to Aranea in this book . He truly loves her and wants to keep her safe .  He will go to the ends of the world for her to keep her safe . Aranea in my opinion has grown so much in this book . She has gotten such a strong back bone with every argument that they have . They are such a hot sexy couple, you will love them from the very beginning . 
  When I dived into this book I was ready for a long night of reading , cause once you start one of this author's books you are in for the night . Well I was right I didn't move until I was done . The author took me on a trip that had me on the edge of my seat most of the time . The other time I was having a cry or laughing at the characters antics .  The book is full of intrigue and mystery and so many twist and turns that will keep you reading all night long . The characters are amazing and you will fall in love with them . So if you want a great series to read this winter this is the series for you . Check it out . I promise you won't be disappointed .

   Good Monday morning all today we are going to review UNTIED (Mastemind #2 ) by Lydia Michaels

                            BOOK BLURB

he·ro: /hirō/ (n.) : an admired individual who acts courageously in the face of adversity, often risking his or her own safety for the wellbeing of others without seeking recognition for acts of duty. (e.g. Everything Elliot Garnet is not, but wishes he could be.)

Elliot Garnet has never been popular. His aptitude and single-minded focus on success has earned him a fortune but has led to a solitary existence and a desire to keep his private life private. Romance holds little temptation, but there’s one woman who never fails to unravel his composure. Except, she’s so far out of his league they only ever speak in his fantasies, until fortune—or fate—causes their paths to cross again.

fan·ta·sy: /ˈfan(t)əsē/ (n.) : an imagined occurrence that is so improbable it has no basis in reality. (e.g. Nadia Rosza, the exotic goddess and object of Elliot’s most carnal desires reciprocating his feelings.)

With a revolving door of attractive men entering and exiting Nadia’s life, she’s yet to find Mr. Right. And after a disastrous date with yet another Mr. Wrong, she’s doubtful she’ll ever find true love, until an unexpected hero comes to her rescue. Elliot’s reserved, quiet nature lures her in, but the moment she gets too close he pulls back, tempting her all the more.

She’s an impulsive romantic and he’s a methodical realist. Their volatile chemistry ties him in knots, and despite his efforts to hide his painful past, Nadia slowly unravels his secrets and Elliot becomes unhinged, uncensored … UNTIED. 

                       MY REVIEW 
     What do you do when you are an introvert and really just want to be left alone . Meet Elliot, he is that man who just wants to work and keep his private life private . Until the day the one woman who can unravel him walks into his life . After a disastrous date Nadia is left with nowhere to go . When Elliot swoops in and saves the day taking her home with him . When the two unlikely people begin to navigate the rules of what love is and how they can come together . With pasts that are painful in both their paths . Will they be able to get over the hurt of the past and realize that they belong together. 
  The second book in the series is all about Elliot , Ashers best friend . He is such a sweet soul . I fell in love with him , he has had a hard life and has basically just given up on some things . You just want to wrap him up and hug him and tell him that everything will be ok and that he will be loved . It is so much fun watching him with Nadia and how she gets under his skin . He really gets so flustered . He is so cute when he does . Nadia is well she is such a fun read . She is gorgeous but also kind of a flirt . She needs a man in her life so she thinks. She is always picking the wrong man and it is eating away at her self esteem . She is hiding a sweet woman under all the flirting that she does . When they get together there are sparks and I mean sparks . You will fall in love with these two , trust me on that one . 
    I couldn't put this book down when I got it . The characters had me falling in love with them . The author takes us on a very emotional rollercoaster ride . I laughed and cried through out this book .  This book brought all sorts of feels , I really felt for Elliot and his past pain that he went through.  You will really identify with these characters , and love and hate them . The author pours a lot of emotion into this book . So if you want a book that will make you laugh and cry and ugly cry . This book is for you . I truly enjoyed this book . So check it out . 
this book comes out tomorrow

I AM BACK  , hope everyone had a great holiday . For the first book of 2019 we have a fun read by Aidy Award and book 5 in her Dragon's love cure . BABY ME .

                               BOOK BLURB 

Dark forces don’t want these dragon babies to be born…

It shouldn’t be a surprise to Azy that her pregnancy is…different. Everything else about her has been too. A girl from Chicago who is half mermaid and mated to a dragon Wyvern? Yeah. That’s not exactly the kind of life she can talk to anyone about.
But she’s only a few months along and already the size of a house, a really big dragon sized house.
She’ll happily let her little ones take over her entire body if it will keep them safe from the woes of the world, which not only include the dark forces of hell, but also univited mermaids, a whole crew of wedding planning friends, and a bizarre prophecy.

Cage has been to hell and back for his mate, literally. She’s finally safe and pregnant with his twins. He can hardly wait for his new little dragon warriors to be born.
But when evil shows up wanting to destroy his entire world he’ll have to defeat his own fears before he can help his mate and children.
That means living up to his destiny to be the courageous leader meant to guide all Dragonkind in victory over their foes.
And becoming a daddy too.

A flying dragon and a mermaid can have children… or can they?

Grab your copy of Baby Me today and continue the Dragons Love Curves adventure!

                         MY REVIEW 
    What happens when a mermaid and the alpha of the dragons Wyvern are mated and a miracle happens and they are going to have babies . For Cage and Azy its has been going to hell and back . Now safe in their sanctuary and pregnant with twins . They have it all  but when evil comes knocking will Cage defeat his fear and defeat the evil that wants his children .   He will have to  unite the dragons and become the leader that they need him to be . Also he has to be there for his wife and the two babies they are bringing into the world .
  I truly love this series , the characters are well written and complex . Cage well he is oh so sexy and honorable . He is the leader of the dragonkind and oh you want to fly with him . He has some hilarious scenes when his mate is cussing him out while she is giving birth . Azy is one strong woman . She is half mermaid and one tough girl . We also se a softer side of her as her maternal instincts come into play . They are a great characters that are fun to read on their own but when they are together are explosive . You will love them so much,
   The author takes us on a fun filled  adventure into parenthood . Which at times is a great funny read . There are moments where you want to keep them wrapped up in a blanket and tell them that everything will ok . There is suspense , a little uncertainty and some fear all mixed in to take us to the edge of our seat and keep reading . Each dragon book can be read as a stand alone but if you want to really get to know Cage and Azy read their love story . CAGE ME  and then continue with this story . you will not be disappointed at all . So add them to your winter reading list
