  Good morning my peeps , hope your Christmas prep is going good and you are all done and ready to celebrate the season . Today I have a Christmas book in the Haven Hollow series . THE YULE LOG  by Hp Mallory and J.R Rain 

                            BOOK BLURB 

 It’s December 21 and the first night of the celebration of Yule!

Much to Lorcan’s feigned irritation, Wanda is in the midst of throwing a Yule celebratory party at one of his numerous residences within Haven Hollow.

But, yuletide exaltation is hardly on his mind. The only thing Lorcan can think about, other than the long and smooth line of Wanda’s delicate neck, is his Yule gift still awaiting her.

But, as with most things involving the vampire and the Blood Witch, not everything goes to plan.

When Lorcan imbibes one too many blood-chatas (ten, to be exact), memories of his unfortunate childhood revisit him and before he can stop himself, he’s waxing… well, not exactly poetic.

Faced with a ruined holiday party and feeling sorry for himself, Lorcan turns his anger on the Yule log, something which will prove to be quite the big mistake…

                    MY REVIEW 

 When Wanda throws an epic Yule party at his mansion , he is really non too thrilled . Well we know from past experiences with Wanda and Lorcan things don't always go as planned . When Lorcan over does it on the blood - chatas , his past childhood traumas come back and before he knows it he is throwing a hissy fit and throws everyone out of the party including the Yule log. Which like all things concerning Lorcan and Wanda is a big mistake . Will they be able to stop what happens before Yule is ruined for all and Lorcan ends up getting a lightning bolt where the sun doesn't shine .

   Omg I love this story and I absolutely love Lorcan and Wanda so much .  Lorcan is such a fun character , in this novella he is trying really hard to keep thing civil with Wanda and keeping his lust to a low level and her . He is so tortured through out this book and I feel for him.  Wanda is back as the temptress she is to Lorcan and when things go awry. They are such a fun couple even when they are fighting there is a chemistry between them . I love them together as a couple and want to see that finally happen for them . 

 This is such a fun story to read during the Christmas season . It is a fun fast little read that will keep entertained . The authors really like to put their characters through a lot before getting them to their happy place . I am so glad we got to see more of Lorcan and what happens to him as more of a character then the hero that comes blowing in at the end to help . I love this story and it is the fun read for the evening . So check it out for the Christmas .

Books to curl up with: WELCOME TO FRIDAY:   Good morning my peeps , today I have the 11th book in the Haven Hollow series . MYSTIC VEIL  by Hp Mallory and J.R Rain                   ...


  Good morning my peeps , today I have the 11th book in the Haven Hollow series . MYSTIC VEIL  by Hp Mallory and J.R Rain

                              BOOK BLURB 

  When my son, Finn, freaks out after seeing a stranger peering in through his window, I have a feeling something wicked this way comes. Unfortunately, it’s not long before reports of the same peeping tom come pouring in from all around Haven Hollow, but no one knows who this guy is or what he wants.

And, when my good friend Henner reports a disturbance in his home, the Tayir Mansion, that culminates with the disappearance of his housekeeper and a room full of bloody handprints, I have a feeling things are about to take a downward spiral very quickly.

To make matters worse, my personal life seems to be equally out of control—there’s my ex-boyfriend, Roy, who keeps trying to salvage our relationship, and then there’s also my best friend, Marty, who’s giving me puppy dog eyes of his own.

As if peeping toms, missing housekeepers, amorous ex-boyfriends, and equally amorous best friends aren’t stressful enough, there’s also a void we discover in the laundry room of Henner’s house. And that void has recently been breached, which means either someone entered or someone escaped…

                      MY REVIEW 


   Poppy and the gang are back and funnier then ever.. After a potion goes awry and Astrid blows out the windows of Poppy's house things just get weird . Finn sees a peeping Tom in his bedroom window and then the other sighting . Poppy, Wanda and the guys are off to find the mysterious man and also to help Henner out . Things just spiral out of control from the moment they walk into the mansion . It doesn't help that Roy is trying to salvage his relationship with Poppy and Marty is having feeling for Poppy . What could go wrong well lets just say everything and naything can go wrong . Here is hoping that they can find their way out and save the day yet again and not end up dead in the process. 

  Poppy and the gang are back and man they are really put through it in this book . Poppy is having a day after a potion blows up . She is having a rough day and man she is really taking a beating this time . She comes in as a strong character and funnier then ever . She is trying to keep everyone on the same page when it comes to finding out what is going on . I love Poppy she is really a no nonsense woman who just wants to live with her son and her friends . Wanda well she is back and more pushier then ever . She seems to some time crumbles in time of crisis . She is a tough cookie with a sweet interior . Roy is back and broody as ever , he wants to fix things with Poppy but she just wants him as a friend . I mean she wants a sexy sasquatch as a friend ok maybe she doesn't have it all together like I thought . Marty is so sweet and kind and when he looks at Poppy all he sees is a sweet woman . Oh there is also Roscoe the evil that came through the veil and wreaking havoc all the place . He is just creepy in so many ways you really want him to die . 

  This is one of those books where you sit down and laugh your way all the way through the book. The authors really like to put the characters through it and in this book is no exception . I laughed my way through and then did a few omgs  as I read . There are moments when you think they might not actually make it through . There are so many twists and turns through out the book and that ending made me happy and really want to see what happens in the next book . So if you want a fun book check out this series .

  Good morning peeps hope everyone is doing good and getting ready for Christmas . I can't believe there is only 12 days till the big day . Today I have a book for you that will give you all the feels . KEL'S BELLS  by V.J Lee. 

                          BOOK BLURB

 Kelsey (Kels) Armond hated everything about Christmas, and this one was going down in the history books as the worst ever. She was going to be the maid of honor in her best friend's Christmas wedding, which included her wearing a Mrs. Claus bridesmaids dress, right down to the furry boots—ugh. Throw in a couple of murders, a coma, add in her best friend’s hot brother (who she's always had a crush on) bringing home his equally hot girlfriend—who was also going to be in the wedding—and it was a recipe for disaster.

Maybe going to prison for murder wouldn't be so bad.

Dalton Green has compared every woman he's ever dated to the love of his life, Kelsey Armond. Even his hot California girlfriend couldn't compare to the voluptuous Kels. His Christmas wish was for her to see him, talk to him, anything other than scowl, and walk away from him, with her reluctance to express feelings of love—almost like she felt she was undeserving. It was his Christmas mission to show her how beautiful she sincerely was, and prove to her how deserving she truly was of being loved, and prove to her how magical Christmas could be—that is, if he didn't get arrested for murder first.

                      MY REVIEW 
 Kelsey Armond really hates all things Christmas but she will do anything for her best friend Lennox even wear a red Santa like dress for her wedding . When the man she has loved since she was a teenager walks in looking as good as ever . He is also her best friends brother . They should be together and Dalton realizes that and Kelsey is so unsure that she deserves his love because she isn't stick thin like the woman he came home with . Will the past haunt them, will they be able to fight for what they want . Will two murders and a coma of the only woman who loved Kelsey for who she is keep them apart . Or will love conquer all . 
 Ok I absolutely adore these characters , Kelsey and Dalton . They are such a I am not going to say a fun couple because there is so much angst that is happening between these two . Kelsey is well she is tough and lets people know what she is thinking . Will do anything for her best friend and her cousin. But there is a sadness in her that is all consuming . She is fighting for her life in everyway possible and some of it isn't good . She needs to feel loved and to love with all her heart . She is also a curvy girl who doesn't believe that she can be loved by the hot ,sexy man with the six pack . Dalton is well he is hot , and he just wants a woman who will love him for himself . He is the guy next door and Kel's best friends older brother . He is the one man that could make Kels realize that she is beautiful and deserves love but it will be a hard battle for both of them . There are moments when you feel the pain that rolls off Dalton and you just want to hug him and wrap a blanket around him . I think my most favourite character is grandma Ruby she is such a fun woman even though she spends most of her time in a coma you know there is more to grandma then you think. Lennox is back and as sweet as ever . 
  This is a story that is a Christmas story but so much more . This a story of redemption and love . The characters are so complex and so well written, you just want to make sure they are ok and wrap them up in a warm blanket . The author really takes us on an emotional roller coaster ride . I will admit to you that if you have a trigger be prepared . There is abuse scenes in this story that will have you crying .Don't worry things will work out or will they not going to tell you . You will have to get the book to find out .  This is a story of redemption and a second chance at love that will have you gushing and full of love . This a book to read on a cold winter evening with a good glass of wine a box of tissues and cozy blanket . So check it out and grab it for the reader in your life

  Today I have a sweet fun novella for you and it is Christmas related . This was a part of an anthology but the author decided to bring it out for Christmas . So lets check out MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT  by Linda Thomas - Sundstrom 

                            BOOK BLURB

 So when Christmas rolls around, and lights appear where they shouldn’t, she’s all in, maybe, for the magic of a season that includes a gorgeous man who says he’s dragon, and a rocky path to the Land of Enchantment.

Jake Silver has bought a new house that seems to have come with persistent visitor named Ridley. But can he shake her off or keep her from a place that holds so many secrets, including some of his?

                       MY REVIEW 
   Ridley is back at her old home and it is Christmas time , all she wants to see is the lights from the valley one more time . Jake is there to make sure she doesn't get to the lights . There is more to Ridley then anyone knows and Jake is trying to figure it out and trying to keep her away from the lights . There is more to both of them and the lights that are calling them . Will he be able to keep her safe and will their secrets come to the for front . 
  Ridley and Jake have to be my favourite Christmas characters , Jake is well brooding and taking his job very seriously , that of keeping people away from the lights and protecting what is in the lights . Ridley is a sweet girl who just seems not to fit in anywhere . She is just wanting to see the lights one more time . Both of them are strong characters and are written with a complexity of a larger novel . 
   This is a sweet book that you can read in a hour or two and fall in love with the characters . The author has a very good way of writing that it doesn't matter how long the book is you are swept up and taken away . Her characters are always well crafted and complex. This is a sweet Christmas story that has dragons and dark and light fae , and what happens when you become part of that world . So if you want a sweet Christmas read with a dragon and fairies check out this novella .
