HELLO TUESDAY

  Good Tuesday all , hope you are all having a good week with not too humid and hot weather around you . Today I have a fun book from The Magic and Mayhem Universe . SHIFTED by R.L MERRILL .
                            BOOK BLURB

  Maggie and Louis, Intervention Specialists from the Afterlife, are used to the unusual—or so they think—but a 500lbs alligator on the run, a mute witch with wonky magic, and a vulgar, talking cat are more than they bargained for. Welcome to Assjacket, West Virginia.


                       MY REVIEW 
      Louis and Maggie are out to help again , they are use to the unusual that goes on in the after life but when they are hauling a 500lb gator to Assjacket West Virginia . They are in for more then they bargained for when they meet up with a mute witch and a vulgar cat who is interested in his own pleasure then helping people . Will they be able to help and will the family in Assjacket accept what is coming . 

   Louis and Maggie are back and as much fun to read as the first time you read them . We also get to meet the Zelda and the gang . Garrett and Layla are our star crossed mates in this story . Garrett well the poor guy has been cursed and now he is an alligator stuck in alligator form . He is strong and but he has such a sad past , Layla has just about as sad past , she is sweet and wants to help but she doesn't really know who she is and her magic is all wonky because of it. When they get together they really get each other and know that they belong together . They are such a cute couple when they are together .

  This is such a fun read , I was so excited to see this as part of the magic and mayhem universe. I will say the author did a great job incorporating her characters with the characters of the universe . They are well written and so enjoyable to read . The author takes us on a fun filled ride that will have you laughing and sighing all the way through the book . This is a stand alone book and it will be a great read for this summer at the beach or by the pool . So check it out

HAPPY MONDAY

  Good morning everyone , its Monday and a dreary Monday it is here . Today I have a fun novel for you . MINDED ( A Haunted story ) by R.L Merrill 

                            BOOK BLURB 

  When landing in Purgatory, no matter the cause of death, a soul must experience an awakening, establish awareness, and ultimately, achieve acceptance of inevitable circumstances.
For Maggie Stone, none of these options were ideal. She was a woman in control of her own destiny, not a pawn in some afterlife game! But in order to “move on,” she’ll have to accept help from an unlikely source dressed in black denim and pissed off at the world. Will she be able to complete her task, work her magic, and mind her kin still struggling with her death?
Louis Sheffield has spent an eternity in Purgatory for reasons beyond his control. When he’s given an opportunity to earn his ticket out of his holding cell, he’s irritated to learn he’ll have to hold the hand of a pretentious, know-it-all, party girl whose every action grates on his last nerve. But Maggie is not all she seems, and once he’s exposed to her world, suddenly he’s tempted to finally accept his destiny and embrace hope.
These two lost souls must work together against the clock to complete their seemingly impossible task. When their charges refuse to cooperate, Maggie and Louis must resort to unorthodox methods to create harmony from bitter chaos. In the end, it all comes down to choices and consequences they never imagined possible.

                        MY REVIEW 
  When Maggie Stone finds herself in purgatory she is finding it hard to come to terms with what happened . She has to have an awakening to come to terms with her past and figure out where she is suppose to go. When Louis Sheffield comes into her dead life . He is not her favourite person and she isn't his . He so doesn't want to be holding her hand through out the process. He doesn't want to be around this party girl . She just gets on his last nerve but as they work through feelings change and hope bubbles to the top . Will they be able to work together and find what each is looking for . 

 This is a book where you can sit down and get lost in the characters . Maggie and Louis are so well written and they have a complexity to them . Maggie was a band manager and in charge . She was strong and fun to be around and also kind of a mother hen to the guys in the band . We really find out what people thought of her as she is going through here awakening . She realizes that she is more to these people . She is the glue that held some of them together . Louis is the type of man who has the weight of the world on his shoulders. He is sad and lonely . There are moments when you want to  hug him and tell him everything is going to be ok .  The cast of characters that Maggie and Louis help out are varied and in so need of help .

HAPPY SUNDAY ALL

 Good Sunday all , today I have the 4th book in Happily never after series . ROSE  by Plum Pascal/ H.p Mallory


                            BOOK BLURB

  A love that has haunted her for years…
When Princess Carmine, aka Rose Red, learns her longtime protector, Huntsman Draven, has been taken prisoner by her evil Uncle, she’s understandably upset. Not to mention the fact that Carmine has loved Draven for as long as she can remember…
Promised to marry another, Carmine tries to escape a loveless marriage and, in the process, finds herself in a precarious situation when her would-be husband decides to take matters into his own hands.
Enter Sabre and Titus, both Huntsmen and the brothers of Draven. Sabre and Titus free Draven and rescue Carmine, taking her on the adventure of a lifetime.
While in their company, Carmine struggles to understand her blossoming feelings for all three huntsman brothers, but will they be willing to share her, as she hopes?

                         MY REVIEW 
  When Princess Carmine finds out her guardian and the man she loves is taken hostage by her evil Uncle . She is promised to a man but that marriage is loveless and there are ulterior motives . When Titus and Sabre , Draven's brothers come and save them from their clutches . They save them both and they go on the adventure of their life time . 

  This is Rose Red's book and book 4 in the series . I think this is the funniest book out of them all . Carmine is such a fun character she is sweet but there is a sadness and a longing to her . She really comes alive when she is with the men that she wants . She can also kick some butt when she has too . Draven , Titus and Sabre are bird shifters and they are deadly huntsmen to boot . They each are very distinct and have a set of skills  I love them and you don't read a lot on bird shifters .  

   This is the 4th book in the series and I think I liked this one the author is really taking the stories and twists them more and more with each book . I love that there are bird shifters in this one , you really never get to see them very often . The characters are well written and with each book we get to see a complexity that grows .  The story is fresh and has some great twists and turns that will keep you reading . There is intrigue and romance and some sexy scenes that will have you blushing .  This is a great book for the summer sitting by the pool or at the beach . I strongly suggest that you read the other books in the series first so you know what is going on .

GOOD SATURDAY ALL

  Good Saturday all , today I have a new author for you and she has written a mermaid book . ISLA EMERGED  by Deidre Sequeira

                            BOOK BLURB 

 Anger. Betrayal. Exile.
Isla always knew she would be queen. One day. But after the death of her mother, matriarch of the Southern Pacific merfolk kingdom, that day grew much closer than she was prepared for. Worse, to become a mermaid queen, she must marry. It is the only way to protect her kingdom.
Forcibly betrothed to her childhood friend and father’s fiercest warrior, Isla is desperate for an escape—no matter the cost. But until she marries, her father is filled with a power his body cannot handle, and his control is steadily slipping.
After an explosive fight with her father, Isla flees to the surface, only to find herself in the middle of a violent storm with two choices: swim to safety or save the human man she sees drowning in the tumultuous waves.
Her decision will change her life, as well as her kingdom, forever.

                      MY REVIEW 
  Isla always knew that she would be queen but when her mother dies that day comes closer and closer . With an arranged marriage to her childhood friend who really doesn't want to marry her but will out of duty . Isla is desperate to escape the clutches of her father. She heads to the surface where she saves a drowning man but that man is not as good as everyone thinks . This changes her life and the lives of her friends forever . 

 This story is based on the little mermaid story but there are things that are totally different . The main characters are well written . Isla at first comes of kind of like a spoiled brat . She is just is doing everything in her power to prove her point to her dad . As we see her through out the book we really get to see her grow and become a strong woman doing what needs to be done to help her friends and save them .  Allister is the young man who is fierce and will do what needs to be done even marry the princess even though he is in love with Isla's best friend .  There are so many diverse characters that keep Isla busy  fighting for her kingdom. 

 This story is a good twist on the little mermaid story, the characters are well written and you tend to get sucked into them and like them . The author has a way of writing that can suck you in and then keep you on the edge of your seat for most of the story. The only thing that kind of had me stop it just seemed a little bit slow at the beginning and I didn't connect with Isla but as i was reading more into the story I got into the characters and really started to care for Isla and the rest of them . Overall I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read book 2 . This would be a great book to read by the pool or at the beach . So check it out

WELCOME TO HOT FRIDAY

  Good morning my lovelies , its going to be a scorcher here today on the ranch . A great day to have a good book and a tall glass of iced tea and settle down and read . Todays book is by Matthew Cox and his series EVERGREEN .

                        BOOK BLURB 



   Harper Cody used to worry about the SATs or a getting a new laptop for Christmas… but now, she only wants to keep her little sister alive.
At 5:59 a.m. early in September, life as she knew it came to an end with a nuclear flash ninety miles away in Colorado Springs. For two months, her family sheltered in the basement of their home, surviving on whatever canned goods Dad could scavenge. Passing evacuees told of a safe haven in the mountains, but her father refused to leave. He thought their home was safe… until a gang of looters kicked in the door.
Four years ago at thirteen, Harper won trophies for competition shooting, but killing a man pointing a gun at her is nothing like nailing targets at a range. Hesitation cost her parents’ lives. With no other options, she grabbed her little sister and ran away from the only home she’d ever known into a world she no longer recognized.
The promise of safety in Evergreen gives her hope, but unless the girl voted sweetest in her class can find the nerve to kill, Harper—and her kid sister—are as good as dead.


                      MY REVIEW 
   At one time poor Harper just wanted to get good grades and get a laptop for Christmas until the day the world ended and her parents are dead .  After a nuclear flash has ended the world and being in the basement of their house with their parents . They now must leave and find the safe haven of Evergreen . With her fathers shotgun and her little sister they are off, they have to travel miles and miles to get to safe haven . She has to realize that she isn't the little girl anymore and she will have to man up and maybe kill someone who is harming them if they want to stay alive . 

  Harper and Maddie are the main characters and they are well written and complex. Harper is a seventeen year old who just wants a laptop for Christmas and her parents back . She is tough but also sweet . She can be tough when she has to be but all she wants to get her and Maddie to safety.  She is just a kid though with the weight of the world on her shoulders . Maddie well she is basically in shock through out the book . Her cell phone is her life line even though it doesn't work. She is basically a walking zombie and I guess you can say she is shell shocked . We do see a sweet girl underneath it all and she does become more animated when they finally meet the other members of their rag tag band . All of the characters are well written and you will fall in love with them . 

  This story is one of what would happen after a nuclear attack . What would you do and how would you survive. The author takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride that will have you reeling and on the edge of your seat . You really start to feel for the characters and you really want to see them succeed in their journey . There are moments you just want to wrap Maddie and Harper up in a warm blanket and tell them that everything will be ok and then the other moments you want to smack them both and say wake up. There are a few spots where the book just kind of dragged but over all it is an enjoyable . This would be an epic series that would be a great summer read . This would be a great book for any fan of apocalyptic stories . Check it out

HAPPY RELEASE WEEK TO LISA KESSLER

  Good Tuesday all hope your day is going good so far. Today I have the newest book in the  Sentinels of Savannah series by Lisa Kessler , PIRATE'S PERSUASION

                           BOOK BLURB 

  Immortal pirate Drake Cole has a reputation in Savannah for his custom woodworking and historical restorations, but his work has grown into an obsession. He's become a stranger to his crew since the Sea Dog sank in 1795. None of them know his painful secret. A young stowaway went down with the ship, one that Drake swore a blood oath to protect.
The ghost of a young boy, lost at sea over two hundred years ago, leads local medium, Heather Storrey right to Drake’s door. He saved her life before, and now she has a chance to return the favor, but how can she protect him from a curse that no one can see?
A dark coven possesses the figurehead from the Flying Dutchman, and if Heather and the immortal Sea Dog crew don't locate the relic soon, Drake may be lost to them forever. Heather has seen the passionate man behind the veil of guilt, and she's determined to free him from his self-imposed prison, and persuade this pirate to love again.

                        MY REVIEW 
    Welcome back to Savannah and the men of the Sea Dog.   This is Drake's story , He has become a great wood worker in Savannah but it has become an obsession to him . He has back away from the crew and best friends . His dark secret too painful to tell anyone. Until the day the ghost of a young boy brings a beauty to his door . Heather Storrey a local medium , was saved by Drake once before now maybe she can return the favor and save his life from the curse that has been hounding him .  She and the Sea Dog crew are on a search for a relic that a dark coven has taken from Davey Jones locker . They are up against it , they need to find out what is going on before they loose Drake forever  Will they come out with their love intact or will the curse take them down . 

 This being the fourth book in the series you will know most of the characters . Drake is the strong silent type . He is a man haunted by the tragedies of his past and is closed off . There are moments in the book where you want to hug him and tell him things will be ok but the other 45 percent of the time you just want to smack him upside the head cause he is just being a stubborn fool. Heather is special , a medium and also a reincarnated soul. She is sweet and boy she is stubborn . She will do anything for the people she loves and will love with all her heart .  Like all her characters these two are so well written and complex you want them to have their happily ever after . The crew of the Sea Dog are back and they are all as feisty as ever, 

  This is the fourth book in the series and the the author doesn't let up on the action and the romance . Her characters are well written and complex and you will love them or actually hate them through out the book . I love the way the author can weave the tales of each couple but also keeps weaving the over all tale of the Sea Dog in each story .  This is a series that you can read over the summer at the beach or by the pool. So if you want a pirate of your own check it out , you will not be disappointed .

ITS RELEASE DAY FOR MAGIC AND MAYHEM

   Good Monday all , today I have a fun book for you its part of the MAGIC AND MAYHEM Universe  Today we have BIG GIRLS DON'T SCRY  by Marianne Morea

                           BOOK BLURB 

 What's a bar-owning witch to do when a ghost with a grudge starts messing with her happy? Not to mention, messing with the love of her life over an ancestor everyone hates. She calls on her half-demon BFF, and a secret weapon she didn't know she had—The Baba Yaga, a.k.a. the most powerful witch in the world.
Tabitha Morgan is in for the fight of her life…well, for the life of her fiancĂ©e, when he's taken over and taken hostage by a hostile witch ghost. History runs amok in this sorcerer's suspense, set in the witchiest place on earth and the home of the magical pokey. Take a ride in a hail of purple smoke and rainbow sparkles, and the worst fashion sense since disco fever died, and see how this ragtag group works magic they didn't know they had to save the day.

                      MY REVIEW 
When Tabitha starts having a vengeful ghost messing up her love life with the man of her dreams . She gathers the gang , her best friend , LInz a half demon  and the secret weapon up her sleeve The Baba Yaga , the head witch and 80's fashion lover. They are in for the battle of their lives when her fiancee is taken and she is out to get him back . Will they survive and will they be able to stay out of the magical pokey . 

 What can I say about these characters well I can say lots . They are well written and complex . Tabitha is feisty and strong , she won't let anything stand in her way . She isn't afraid to do what needs to be done even if she has never done it before .  Michael he is sexy and sweet . He is more then he realizes he is Tabitha's rock when stuff gets too bad. My favourite character is Tabitha's best friend Linz , she is so much fun and is willing to do what Tabitha isn't . She is half demon and loves to torture Tabitha's ex .  They are great characters that you will fall in love with . They really fit into the universe nicely . 

  This is one of those books that when you sit down to read you get lost in the story and the characters . The author takes us on a fun filled , laugh out loud read . There were moments in this book i actually snorted cause I was laughing so hard .  This is a fun quick read and I will say this author has done a great job in this universe . This is one of those books that will be great for your summer reading by the pool or at the beach , So check it out , you will love it .

ITS TIME FOR SOME MAGIC AND MAYHEM

   Good Thursday morning all or as I like to say its Friday eve . Today I have a new series for you by HP Mallory . This series is kind of different it is in episodes and will be out monthly . So let me tell you about SHADOW PHANTOMS .

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
Game of Thrones meets Harry Potter…

Welcome to the sexy world of magic and mayhem—of witches, vampires, fae and lycanthropes.

This episodic, monthly fantasy romance series features all the characters you know and love from the New York Times Bestselling Jolie Wilkins series.

Never heard of the Jolie Wilkins series? Don’t let that stop you. This series serves as a standalone, immediately sucking you in and refusing to let go…

Episode 1: Shadow Phantoms

The order of the Underworld is no longer…

Where once factions of creatures—vampires, witches and warlocks, werewolves and fae—all came together, united under the banner of Queen Jolie, now those factions are separate and vying for control.

The vampires, unified under the authority of Master Vampire, Sinjin Sinclair, are living a life of hedonistic opulence aboard three cruise ships on the open water. Sinjin, bemoaning the loss of his one true love, can find little interest in anything else. But there’s a threat on the horizon, and one which will force Sinjin out of his melancholic lamenting…

Meanwhile the witches and warlocks have been separated into two factions: The King’s Alliance, commanded by ruthless High Mage, Duine and The Order of the Templar, a band of rebels, led by Pagan. While Duine seeks to control all witches and warlocks, subjecting them to his tyrannical rule, Pagan wishes to return magic to the hands of the people.

Amid the chaos of attempted assassinations and battle, is Emma Balfour. Now seventeen, Emma is attending the highly prestigious Elmington Academy—a school of magic. Unlike her witch mother and warlock father, Emma is anything but magical and finds her time at Elmington a struggle. That is, until she meets enigmatic Stone Draper. Stone is handsome, young and charismatic and Emma finds herself immediately taken with him. There’s only one problem… Stone Draper is actually Professor Draper, Emma’s instructor.

Find out what happens in the first episode of the Mists of Magic and Mayhem series!


                     MY REVIEW 
    Welcome back to the underworld where now it is chaos . After Jolie goes missing there is a fallout and everything is in chaos . Duine wants to control the witches and reign with an iron fist an Pagen wants to give the power back to his people . The Vampires are under Sinjin's rule. Queen Jolie is nowhere to be found and Rand has just gone . Emma is at a prestigious Elmington Academy . She is having a hard time at school cause her magic is just a little off . Until she meets Stone Draper the sexy new teacher  and things start to change . 

   The characters you loved from Jolie series are back but they aren't the happy family they once were . Emma is now seventeen and trying to get through school . She is feisty and sweet but she is also kind of lonely and a little lazy the typical teenager . But she has two best friends that really help her out . Stone Draper is wow  he is sweet and sexy but also he has an alpha vibe going for him . He really gets under Emma's skin in a good way . Brynn and Sinjin are back along with Rowen . They are always such to read . 

  This book was such a surprise to me , I was like woohoo the author is continueing the story. Thinking that we are going to see into everyone's happily ever after, well I was wrong on the happily ever after . But of course the author had other ideas and we get to meet new characteres and fall in love with them as much as the original characters . I love the premise of this series , it is written in episodes and will be out monthly . I really like this idea it will keep the series fresh in your mind as you read .  This is going to a great series and I can't wait to see what happens through out each episode . So if you want a great series for the summer check it out . I promise you don't have to read the original  series to like this series .

Discover your new pack—Fated Mountain Wolf Pack...
Come to Colorado where the rivers run cold and the alphas run hot!


Choosing between lovers isn’t the way I want to start my new job—neither is being stalked.
Standing in the tall grass was a gray wolf with brown highlights. He saw her and shifted…
Her heart jumped.
Sam.
She’d been thinking about him, daydreaming about him, and now she had the opportunity to see if what they’d had that one night was real.
She stared for what seemed like five minutes, but was probably only seconds, while her heart skipped in her chest and logic fought with desire.

He’d cut his hair almost brutally short. She wasn’t sure how she felt about that. It gave him a leaner, almost military look, accented by the enforcer tattoo on his shoulder—a FM topped with three stars. She couldn’t spot his other tattoo, and for a moment she wondered if she’d been confused, did he really have one? But his bright blue eyes sparkled in the sunlight and a wicked grin crept over his face. Her thighs began to shake.

Suddenly—missing tattoos, responsibilities, her crappy day—it all disappeared in a fierce rush of need.

She stepped off the path and into the grass. This was meant to be. She’d started the ball rolling, taking big risks with her life, moving, getting a new job, leaving her pack. Now she was about to take another. She was going to sleep with Sam Wulfric.

*****

                       MY REVIEW 
   When Serena comes to work for the pack she runs into the man who is fated to be her mate but there is more then just one man she has to worry about . When she walks up to Gabe and demands to make love with her , her world changes well because there is mistaken identity and will Gabe or his twin brother Sam win out . 

   This is the second book in the series and the characters are just as complex as in the first book . Serena is a no hold bars woman , she is feisty and sweet but also can stand up to anyone . She is also a dream walker , and shifter she can only shift in her dreams . Both Sam and Gabe are tall, sexy and oh so alpha . Sam is a little bit more on the cocky side and Gabe is more on the sweet side . I like Gabe more then Sam cause Sam just seemed to be kind of arrogant in so many ways . There is also a stalker that you will want to slap a few times . These characters are well written and complex . 

   This is one of those books that you get very involved in , you get to fall for the characters and cheer for them when they finally get together . The author takes us on a rollercoaster ride just on the fact of who is she going to pick. The story is well written and the characters are complex . There is some intrigue and a whole bunch of romance and a whole lot of alphaness . This book could be read as a stand alone but I would say read the first book in the series so you can understand the pack a bit more . This is one of those books you can read at the beach or by the pool . So check it out

ITS MONDAY

  Good Monday all , I hope you all had a great weekend . Today I have a fun read for you by  an author I found a bit ago and just finally got time to read her books . Today we have MERLOT AND DIVORCE AND DEADLY REMORSE ( book 2 in the Vampire housewife series) by Jodi Vaughin .

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
I went from being on top of the world to the lowest point of my life.

My husband's affair.
Going head to head with my arch nemesis, Veronica.
Not to mention, I have a feeling someone is trying to take me out.
And I don't mean on a date.
Which will be pretty hard to do since I'm already undead.

Trying to keep my suburban life from crumbling, while making sure I don't weaken under the sunlight is going to take a whole lot of energy and pints of O negative blood.

I'm Rachel Jones, and I'm the Vampire Housewife.

                     MY REVIEW 
    After Rachel finds out about her husbands affair things have to continue even though her heart is breaking and she has to deal with being a vampire . She needs to get up and feed the girls and get them to school. All while she is dealing with becoming a vampire and basically left to fend for herself .  And now she has someone trying to kill her will she get out of this with out a scratch and will her cheating husband get what is coming to him . All in the day of a vampire house wife . 

  Rachel is back and is getting stronger and feistier . Even when she is beaten down by her ex we see the you aren't going to get me down attitude . I truly like these characters they are so very well written . Everyone from the concerned friend that really isn't that concerned Miles is the two timing husband , who honestly you want to slap him upside the head with a cast iron frying pan.  He thinks that he should have his cake and eat it also but he is a cheat and a liar who should get what is coming to him.

   This is the second book in the series and starts basically where book one stopped . We get to see Rachel grow and become more of herself and how she is dealing with being a vampire and a mother .The characters are well written and you will fall for them . There is a good mystery and a little romance to go along with the mystery. The characters will have you laughing and the story will have you on the edge of your seat  So if you want a good series for the pool check them out ,

A FUN NEW SERIES

 Good morning all , today is going to be a scorcher out here so I am going to be out in the hammock reading . Today I have the first book in a fun new series by H,p Mallory . BAD BLOOD book one in the F My Life series

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
I’m so excited to be headed to the Academy of Enchantment where I’ll be a transfer student for the next year...

Except I never make it.

When a shadow demon boards my train, I’m overcome by his power and I black out.

And when I wake up? I’m in a place called Dread.

And, yes, Dread is as snug and cozy as the name would imply.

Awaiting my arrival at the train station is Harlow. He’s an incubus—a sex demon... and let's just say his looks live up to his race. Harlow’s got instructions to deliver me to my host family.

Which means I’ve been expected in Dread. Why? That’s the mystery I need to figure out. And pronto.

But, first, I have to survive the evening at Castle Raven Night and I have to survive my host family, Count Jean-Claude Von Zarovich… the third. Yeah, the count might be the hottest guy I’ve ever seen in my life, but he’s also a vampire and last I checked, vampires eat you.

Then there’s Riven… Riven is the headmaster of the Academy of Necromancy and he’s the reason I’m here. And, yes, he’s just as freaking hot as Jean-Claude and Harlow. Only I’ve got a bone to pick with Riven because he totally hijacked my plans…

And yet, there’s something about Riven’s soulful eyes, Jean-Claude’s pain and Harlow’s need that makes me think maybe a quick layover in Dread wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world…

Famous last words.

Please Note: This is a paranormal reverse harem academy series meant for readers 18 and over. This is also a SLOW burn reverse harem romance, but it's plenty heavy in the steam department.

REVERSE HAREM SERIES:

  
                          MY REVIEW 
 Hi all let me introduce myself I am Everly and I am on my way to the Academy of Enchantment ,that is what I thought anyway . When a shadow demon comes aboard the train and Everly ends up in Dread . What is a young dryad going to do when she meets the three men that might just change her life in many ways . 

   Ok you know sometimes when it is the first book of a new series they sometimes are just starting to be developed . Well I will say that these characters are so well developed . Everly is sweet and kind as all dryad are but there is something in her that is feisty and strong . She will do anything to help out those that she cares about. Jean Claude is the strong sexy vampire that is well like any vampire brooding and oh so sexy .There is more to him though that needs to be helped . Riven well he is the sweet guy who is also a shadow demon that is wanting to help . He has soulful eyes that pull you in and want to help him with just about anything . Then there is my favourite character Harlowe , an incubus and a big flirt, he is also loyal to those who he calls friends . I really liked him and his antics . There are some cool characters in this book we have a dragon head master of the school called Cackus . A golem named riddles who is Everly's protector . And another one of my favourite characters Pilot a Pegasus with a real attitude and is another of Everly's protectors . 

   This story is such a hoot to read , I know its a reverse harem book but it is a slow burn and the author is setting it up really well  You can get a sense of the tension that is just starting to build between the four main characters  and it builds slowly . Which honestly I like for this series cause it is such a fun read . The characters are fun and you honestly get a Sookie Stackhouse feel to the book . Just a fun fast read that will have you laughing all the way through. This would be a great book for the beach or pool side . So check it out cause I feel this is going to be one fun filled read .

WELCOME BACK TO MONDAY

 Good morning all its Monday again and I must say that its a good day here . The reopening of my home province and finally and hubby and I can finally head to our favourite restaurant . If you can't get to your favourite place I have a great book for you to pass your time . SENSE AND SCENT ABILITY  (a paranormal woman's fiction book one ) by Renee George

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
My name is Nora Black, and I'm fifty-one-years young. At least that's what I tell myself, when I'm not having hot flashes, my knees don't hurt, and I can find my reading glasses.

I’m also the proud owner of a salon called Scents & Scentsability in the small resort town of Garden Cove, where I make a cozy living selling handmade bath and beauty products. All in all, my life is pretty good.

Except for one little glitch...

Since my recent hysterectomy, where I died on the operating table, I’ve been experiencing what some might call paranormal activity. No, I don’t see dead people, but quite suddenly I’m triggered by scents that, in their wake, leave behind these vividly intense memories. Sometimes they’re unfocused and hazy, but there’s no doubt, they are very, very real.
Know what else? They’re not my memories. It seems I've lost a uterus and gained a psychic gift.

When my best friend's abusive boyfriend ends up dead after a fire, and she becomes the prime suspect, I end up a babysitter to her two teenagers while she's locked up in the clink. Add to that the handsome detective determined to stand in my way, my super sniffer’s newly acquired abilities and a rash of memories connected to the real criminal, and I find myself in a race to catch a killer before my best friend is tried for murder.

                           MY REVIEW 
  Nora is living the simple life running a successful salon in the sleepy town of Garden Cove . She has her best friend and a special gift that she got while she was in for a hysterectomy . When her best friend is accused of murder of her abusive boyfriend it wll take everything Nora has to help her out and catch the killer before he strikes again .  

  Nora is the type of woman who knows what she wants and how to get it . She is fifty one years old and is feisty and she will fight for her friends . The characters in this story are well written and you care for all of them . They are a hoot to read and you will love them 

  This is a story that will have you hooting and hollering all the way through the book. The characters are well written and you will fall in love with them . The paranormal power is quirky and I have never read about what she can do .  The story will have you laughing all night long .  The author starts out really well when she is setting up the story but there are spots that it just felt like every other cozy mystery and all about solving the murder . Over all i really enjoyed this book and laughing hard through most of it . So if you want a good book for by the pool check it out

HAPPY RELEASE DAY F0R FATED MATE

  Happy Release day to Jessica Aspen and her book FATED MATE .


                           BOOK BLURB 

I've been abandoned. Left on the side of a mountain road with a Rocky Mountain storm on the way and the only person I can turn to is a stranger—but Aaron has his own secrets...
Gwynn swallowed hard. “Hey.” She hovered on the side of the road, unsure of what to do, now that she’d gotten his attention.
Gray eyes started at her feet, taking their time as they traced up her body, tracing danger up her spine.
He was bigger than she’d thought. Close up, he looked hard and hungry. Well over six-foot, with slightly curling black hair, a scruffy three-day-old beard, and a silver stud in one ear. But this was no Pirate Jack. This man was all hard, bulging muscle under his tight, white tee-shirt and jeans—definitely more lumberjack than pirate.
He finished his examination and finally met her eyes. Her panting breaths were suddenly shorter. Her gut said ‘back away- danger! Danger!’
But this danger wasn’t the kind she was familiar with, growing up on the edge of the seedier side of town. He wasn’t a street thug or a pimp. She knew what those people looked like, smelled like. She’d seen enough of them, when her dad drove them into the neighborhoods her mom struggled to keep them out of. This man felt like a different kind of threat.
He had a stillness about him. The kind that said he would move in an instant. The kind that would come in handy if Herb’s buddies showed up. The lethal kind.



                        MY REVIEW 
  When Gwynn is left on the side of the road on a mountain pass . She has to rely on the help of a man that she doesn't know but wants to . Aaron is an enforcer for a loan shark but he has some secrets to why he is working for them . Together they have to fight for what they want and the love that is brewing between them and will she believe the truth about Aaron and his life .

  Well what can \I say about Aaron and Gwyn . Aaron is well he is a sexy, brooding and a shifter who has been working to help out his pack. He is oh so smoldering you will want to take him home and really have fun with him . hehehehehehhe. Gwyn well she is at the beginning a little whiny and kind of annoying but as you read she becomes stronger . She really comes into her own once she gets to the ranch. They are good characters on their own but as a couple they smolder . 

    I truly liked this story , the characters are so well written and complex . The author takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride that will have you on the edge of your seat through out most of the book .  There is a intrigue and lots of romance and some scenes that will make your kindle melt .  This would be a great book to read at the pool or out enjoying the sun . So if you want a sexy read that will have you reading till late in the night check out the Fated Mate .

ITS A NEW MONTH

Wow Welcome to June , I can't believe we have been in lock down for like almost three months . We are slowly coming out of but if you need a great book for this summer check out the ninth book in the Sinjin and Bryn series THE LOST CHILD by H.P Mallory

   
                           BOOK BLURB 


From New York Times Bestselling Author, HP Mallory, Comes the Sinjin Sinclair Vampire Romance Series! This is book 9 in the series. Book 1, SINJIN, is a FREE DOWNLOAD!

After realizing their infant daughter has been spirited away to the land of Faery by the Fir Darrig, one of the Unseelie Court, Bryn and Sinjin decide to go after her.

Luckily, they have Odran, Klaasje and Dureau by their side.

But once they locate the baby, Sinjin and Dureau are taken hostage by the Darrig and its Unseelie cohorts while the others are forced to find their own way back.

Forced to separate from Sinjin, Bryn thinks her luck can’t get any worse… that is, until they return to Kinloch Kirk...

Find out what happens in The Lost Child!

                      MY REVIEW 
 Sinjin, Bryn,  and the gang are in the land of fairy hunting for the daughter that was taken away from them . They are there to ask the Seelie Court to help them . When that falls through Odran. Klassje and Dureau are there as they venture out on their own to find their daughter . With all things that go with Bryn and Sinjin things don't go as planned after they find their daughter . Sinjin and Dureau are taken hostage all the while Bryn and the rest have to find their way back home . If that isn't bad enough things at home are going well for any of them . Will Sinjin get home and will they actually survive all that is happening at home . 

   Ok Sinjin and Bryn are so much fun to read in this story. Sinjin the man of stone that nothing rattles him well in this book we get a glimpse into his past and what he had to do to survive . Which to me is great insight to the man . We also get to see him actually doubt himself and his skills of being a father to a wee girl. We see him work through it and really start to want to be a dad . He is still a blood thirsty vampire but we really get to see a softer side to him. Bryn well she is still tough and feisty but she now has something more to fight for , her daughter . She will make you laugh when it comes to changing diapers . We also get to meet Rowan the sweet little girl that takes everyone's' heart and melts it . The rest off the gang are back and getting ready for battle against Luce . 

   This is a book that you can sit down and read in an evening or an afternoon at the pool . The characters are well written and with each book they are getting more complex . We are also finding out more about their pasts . The author takes us on a rollercoaster ride that will have you on the edge of your seat most of the way through . There are also some fun light times through out the book that will have you laughing . The dresses in Fairy are hysterical to read .  I am kind of bummed that this is the last book in the series but the author did the characters justice and we aren't really getting rid of them there will be a new series that will have them back and handling teen age problems . This is a great series that I will say you should give it a try and have a fun filled summer read .
