HAPPY MONDAY ALL

  Good morning my peeps, I hope everyone had a great weekend and found some good books to read. Today I have for you a new release from Linda Thomas - Sundstrom. Lets check out BLOOD DEBT .


                         BOOK BLURB



 Can a fortune teller truly predict the future?


                    MY REVIEW 
  When on the hunt for a murderer in a gang infested park Adam Scott , a police officer with the Miami police department, finds more than a murder suspect . He finds a woman who calls to him, who makes him feel just a little more . Tory Mckidd will she save him from the killers or will she try and change their fate that will bring them together or will the fates pull them apart 

   The characters in this book are such a fun couple . Adam is a no nonsense type of guy who does his job well. When he meets the one for him things start to change in his life. He can't get her out of his mind and he can't stand not being around her and is trying to figure her out. Tory is a woman with secrets and one of them is that she is a psychic who is trying to figure out who killed her brother. She is a tough woman who doesn't want help from anyone but when  Adam comes on the scene she can't help but protect him from what is going on in the park.

  This is a story that has a mystery and romance all in one . This is actually a retelling of a paranormal story that was turned into a great suspense story . Which actually works well, the author just has a way of writing that will keep you turning pages all night . Her characters are well written and complex an you can't help but love them. So if you want a good suspense story check it out

ITS ALMOST THE WEEKEND

  Good morning my peeps , I hope this finds you well on this Thursday.  I have been in a reading slump just a little well cataract surgery had something to do with that but when  I found out book 2 in the Daughters of the Moon series was out I had to read .  So lets check out THE HANGED MAN by Hp Mallory.


                          BOOK BLURB 



 KATE:

After inheriting my aunt’s crappy castle in the rinky dink town of Maplewood, Vermont, my life will never be the same again. I’m not even slightly exaggerating.

So why the pity party? Well, first off, I’m now a celestial guardian (called a Daughter of the Moon) and prior to moving here, I didn't even read my horoscope. Second, I’m the caretaker of a talking goat and a shrunken head, yet I've never even owned a goldfish! And third? I’m stuck with literally the WORST bodyguard in the history of terrible bodyguards. Right--Magnus is about as fun as a hemorrhoid.

And let’s not even talk about the fact that as soon as I made my vow to the moon, my body decided to morph into a fertility statue (and I'm forty-freaking-five!) Still not exaggerating--the Andes have sprouted on my chest and my ass needs its own zip code.

But that’s not even the worst part! Nope, not by a long shot.

The absolute kicker is that my sex-crazed, nudist of a mother has just decided to relocate to a town nearby which means we’ll be seeing a lot more of each other. That might sound nice, but it isn’t. Not at all. Trust me--you haven't met my mother...

At least I have Luke Montgomery to rely on—Luke’s a magician in town and he’s the only one who’s able to keep me from wanting to tear my hair out. Not only that, but Luke’s in a word: hot. And, yeah, I might have a little crush on him…

As if things weren't weird enough, they get even weirder when I start having dreams of an incredibly sexy man who appears to be stuck in a garden. I can’t decide if he’s simply the result of one too many snacks before bedtime or if he’s meant to teach me something about the newest tarot lesson I’m embarking on—The Hanged Man.

Sometimes life truly is stranger than fiction.


                      MY REVIEW
 
    After the lessons of the first tarot card Kate isn't really looking forward to figuring out the rest of her powers that she got from becoming a daughter of the moon. It seems like things are going from bad to worse for poor Kate. She is having dreams of a sexy man who is trapped in a garden, she is not sure if he is there to help her or hinder her. Magnus is trying to train her and then there is Luke who is helping her out and Rocco and Yolanda aren't helping matters any. Then to top it off Kate's mom has come to Vermont and well is wreaking havoc all over the place . Will anyone survive mom and will Kate figure out the hanged man tarot card before the Dark Coven come for her . 

  Kate and the gang are back and my oh my funnier then ever. Poor Kate she is having a tough time trying to wrap her head around all that is going on with her new life.  We do get to see Kate grow a bit but she still comes off as a whiner through out the story Magnus is still as bossy as ever and well Luke is still as sweet and sexy. They are starting to grow deeper and more complex as characters through out the book, we also get to meet mom and man she is a whirlwind of insanity and child like behavior, lock up your sons , lock up your sons. 

  The second book in the series dives more into what it means to be a daughter of the moon and what Kate has to do to stay alive . The author takes us on a fun fueled ride. All I am going to say is poor Magnus. There are many giggle times through out the book not only from Rocco and Yolanda but also Kate's mom and her flamboyant way of life . So if you want a fun book this is the series for you check it out you will like it.

GET YOUR INVITATION READY

  Good morning peeps . I know it is Wednesday I hope you are all having a good week so far. Today I have for you two books actually . A full novel and a novella that takes place right after the novel and I just thought it would be so much fun to put both books together. So grab your invitation and your sunscreen we are headed to a wedding.  CALAMITY RAYNE GETS HITCHED  book 3 in the Calamity Rayne series by Lydia Michaels 


                          BOOK BLURB



 Calamity Rayne—fiancée of very sophisticated and powerful billionaire hottie, Hale Davenport—has a wedding to plan! With no clue how she managed to out-Darwin a bazillion other women and land one of the world’s most desirable bachelors, she becomes the paparazzi’s newest target. Receiving a crash course in charm school and wedding etiquette, she fights tradition and ends up following a lazy bride's guide to catastrophes and chaos in this laugh-out-loud, opposites-attract, billionaire romantic comedy from bestselling author, Lydia Michaels.

    
                       MY REVIEW 
 Rayne and the gang are back and now it is time for our Rayne to marry the man of her dreams, the man who loves her for her and how she is as a human not what she can do for him. Well as we know with Rayne things don't usually go as planned and well there is a reason why they call her Calamity Rayne things just usually go from bad to worse. With Hale planning the wedding of the century and his sister just taking Rayne on the wedding train. To her best friend who for some reason is dodging her and well mad at her for some reason. Will Rayne and Hale actually make it to the alter or will they be doomed from the start .
   Rayne well she is still a mess , sometimes she just overthinks everything and always puts the wrong foot forward. She is the type of girl that you do want as your best friend but sometimes you just get tired of trying to get her through the day. But we do see her really blossom towards the end of the book and become the woman that she wants to be and the woman Hale loves. Hale well he is just a sexy. sexy man but sometimes he really comes off  as overbearing and kind of an oaf but he does love Rayne unconditionally and would do almost anything for her . I do love these characters and they are great together. We also get more of the family and yes they actually do behave themselves for the most part well except for one that you will want to smack upside the head a few times . 

 This is the last book in the series and the author did it up right. The characters grew and became some beloved characters that you can't wait to get back to reading . This is a fun read that you can put yourself into and realize you are like the main character in so many ways .  You should read the other two books in the series so you will be all caught up on the family and understand what is going one and why Rayne is the way she is . Honestly going to miss these characters cause they are such a fun read. So if you want such a fun series to read check out the Calamity Rayne series 

Lets head our the honeymoon and see what fun ensues in CALAMITY RAYNE OVER THE MOON

                              BOOK BLURB 


 After throwing the wedding of the century, Calamity Rayne—a.k.a. the new Mrs. Davenport—is overdue for a little rest and porn-a-cation! Luckily, Hale has planned an eight-week honeymoon. What could possibly go wrong?
Join the newlyweds for a wet and wild adventure in this delightfully naughty, opposites-attract, billionaire novella from bestselling author, Lydia Michaels.


                       MY REVIEW 
 Well what do you do after having the wedding of the century . You go on the honeymoon of the century an 8 week trip of beautiful places, great food and well lots of bedroom time with her hot husband. What could go wrong well if your Rayne almost anything . 

 This is a short story of what wild times a honeymoon can be. Rayne and Hale do get to do lots together and really become one with each other . Everything for Hale goes great but anytime Rayne tries to do something sweet well hilarity ensues . The scuba suit had me laughing so hard I had tears . 

 This is the icing on the cake of the series and we get to see them become a family and show each other how much they love each other . The author really had me rolling on the floor laughing with what was going on. I am really hoping that there will be one more book of them having a baby and this isn't the end of my favourite funny couple .

HAPPY SATURDAY ALL

   Good morning my peeps , I hope you are all doing well this Easter weekend and taking time out to do a little reading. Today I have for you book 7 in the Resistance Girl series, that will be out on April second . THE LONDON SPYMAKER  by Hannah Byron 


                         BOOK BLURB 



 Inspired by a true story and featuring the last “resistance girl from the Swiss finishing school”, ‘The London Spymaker’ weaves together espionage, betrayal, and passion against the backdrop of World War II, delivering a gripping tale of resilience and secrets.

London, 1942

Meet Anna Adams, the stoical spymistress of Baker Street Headquarters, as she navigates the web of secrecy, love, and duty. It is her job to recruit the female secret agents that will be sent behind enemy lines in France.

While concealing her identity and origins, Anna’s world takes an unexpected turn when the Polish fighter pilot Major Henryk “Hubal” Pilecki reenters her life. Her undeniable feelings for her former boyfriend complicate Anna’s life further as she is supposed to marry the very British Count Roderick Macalister so that all traces of her past are permanently erased.

Torn between love and duty, Anna makes a heart-breaking choice that leads to catastrophe. Everything goes wrong at Baker Street HQ and one after the other her female agents disappear without a trace.

As the war ends, Anna embarks on a quest to post-War Germany to uncover the fates of the women she sent to their deaths, all the while confronting her own troubled past and mysterious protector.


                        MY REVIEW 
 Meet Anna Adams a spymistress and it is her job to recruit young female spies that will be sent behind enemy lines . As she wades through love, secrecy and duty she finds herself torn between the old love of her life and her duty to the young woman . She is trying to hid her past and now she is engaged to Count Roderick Macalister to help erase her past. But when things go from bad to worse at their headquarters Anna must make a heart breaking decision and at the end of the war Anna embarks on a quest to find out what happened to the women she sent out and also come to terms with her own past and the mysterious protector.

  Anna is one of the strongest women you would ever meet , she may not act it some times but this girl has been through the ringer but she is one of many fighters. As we find out Anna 's past was one of hardships. She grew up as a Polish Jew who with her family were rounded up by the Nazis and taken to the border of Poland and had to live in a tent  during the harshest of conditions . Then she was finally airlifted to safety to England where she is helped by family and strives to a better life . We see her grow stronger as she grows . There are so many characters that come in and out of her life through out the story. Roderick well he is helping her to give her credibility and basically a new life but man he comes off as a pompous boob most of the time and you really want to just smack him upside the head a few times to see if any sense will knocked into his head . Henryk is the man who saves Anna and her family . He is the sweetest man you could ever meet , he truly cares for Anna and also for her family. He has a sense of duty that calls to him and he wants to do what he can to save as many people as possible. These are characters you can fall in love with each character is well written and complex. 

  This is a story that will have you captivated from the very first page . The author takes a true tale and weaves a story that will have you turning pages all night long . I love how the story takes a nonconstructive view on her life and her past letting it entwine with her present day as a War Crimes investigator for the Nuremburg trials and trying to find the female agents that were sent behind enemy lines . Honestly I never knew i could get into historical stories but this series has really captured my heart . I have cried with these main characters and cheered with them. This could be read as a stand alone book but I seriously suggest you read the whole series and be swept away . Check out this series coming out April 2 2024

COVER REVEAL DAY

  Good morning peeps I have something special for you today. I got my hands on the cover for Aleatha Romig's new book coming out




                              A LITTLE ABOUT THE BOOK

 Capo to the Luciano Famiglia was my birthright.

The cruelty needed to succeed in this life has been beaten into me since I was a young boy. My father, Vincent Luciano, taught by example and with the slap of his hand. My independent streak took me down paths my father would never have gone. With our enemies gaining strength, it is my idea to attempt an alliance with an unlikely bedfellow.

The Roríguez Cartel and the Luciano Famiglia are improbable partners, yet even Vincent Luciano can’t deny the possible benefits. The only way to solidify the deal is for me to marry Catalina Ruiz, the eldest daughter of Andres Ruiz, a top lieutenant in the Roríguez Cartel.

Catalina is young, beautiful, and thinks she understands the path she is being forced to follow. There is no way for her to know the monster she is about to wed. A man doesn’t become a made man at thirteen if he is capable of love. That emotion is beyond my scope of expertise. Saving the famiglia is my goal. And once this alliance is made, ours will be but the first of the brutal vows exchanged.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY TO PAM GODWIN

    Good morning my peeps, hope you all are having a great week. It is release day for Pam Godwin's new book HILLS OF SHIVERS AND SHADOWS . 


                        BOOK BLURB



 Abducted and taken to a remote cabin in Alaska, Frankie finds herself at the mercy of four feral men, each with his own dark secrets and twisted desires.

With nowhere to run, she must rely on her wits to survive the harsh winter, trapped with them.

As she delves into their mysterious pasts, she uncovers an insidious evil that feeds on loyalty and uses love as a weapon.

Nothing is as it seems.

In this desolate world where the monsters are as beautiful as they are cruel, trust is elusive. They torment her, protect her, and keep her in the dark.

But to have any chance of escape, they must stand together.

Or fall prey to the evil in the hills of shivers and shadows.


                     MY REVIEW 
 On an island in Alaska Frankie is taken from her husband and he job by a brute of a man. She is taken to a place where there is nothing but snow, ice and cold. To a place where she is put in a position between a father and his sons. Where the wolves are closer than you think . She tries to escape but there is nowhere to go. Who does she trust the three men and brothers who want nothing to do with her or the man who stole her away from her life. She has to pick carefully they only have one chance to escape but will they be able to stand together to save themselves from the evil that has settled in the hills around them. 

   Ok this is a story full of characters that you will love and hate at the same time .  Frankie is a woman at a crossroads in her life after a fight with her husband she is left alone contemplating on leaving her husband . A twist of fate she is taken and thrust into a world of evil. She is really naive at the beginning and tries to push her way out of the spot she is in. We see her start to break down and become a shell of herself until the one thing that brings her back and fierce as ever, She starts to fight and get a stronger backbone against her captor. She has three protectors in the names of Kodiak, Leonid and Wolfson. Denver , daddy and kidnapper . well he is his own type of evil. He is sexy and suave but there is an evil that you just didn't know could exist.  You just can't trust him with anything, he is a master manipulator. Kodiak and Leonid have explosive tempers that could harm them or actually save them. Leonid is the mechanic and is like a viking in the way he acts . He is a hit first talk second type of man who will hate you but if needed will protect you from all the bads in the world. Kodiak is the strong silent type who will let his anger take over when push comes to shove . He is a protector but with that he is always in the wrong place and gets hurt.  Wolfson is the poet and the sweet one , he is broken in so many ways but you will love him. He is the youngest but the most haunted of all three of the brothers. Your heart will go out to him and you will want to hug him and care for him like a little bird. 

   This is a story that I will say will break you and yes it broke me . The author took us on such a roller coaster ride . The characters are so well written and complex and you really start to care for each and everyone of them. There are moments that you want to slap them all and yell at them to smarten up .  I will warn you if you have triggers this might not be the book for you. There are some dark aspects in this book that will have you on the edge of your seat . So if you have triggers about forced proximity, kidnapping, murder and mayhem, emotional abuse , this might not be the book for you .  This is a dark romance book and I must say it is one of the author's best books . Its a big book over 700 pages but girl it reads fast and once you start you will be done in no time. So if you want a book that will have you shedding tears and fanning yourself check it out . I can't wait to see what happens in book 2 .

HAPPY RELEASE DAY

   Good morning peeps , today is release day for Jodi Allen Brice and the first book in her new series  THE JOURNEY NEVER ENDS  book one in the Tiny Homes and Happy Trails series 


                          BOOK BLURB 



 Embark on a journey of self-discovery and family secrets in "The Journey That Never Ends," a gripping women's fiction novel by Jodi Allen Brice. Meet Elana Taylor, heiress to the multimillion-dollar Taylor Fishing Products empire, residing in the picturesque Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The tranquil facade shatters when Elana's father demands her help in persuading her grandmother, Cecilia Taylor, to sign over the family business due to her alleged failing mental state.

As Elana grapples with the weight of her father's request, she discovers a startling revelation—her grandmother isn't losing her mind but is entangled in a mysterious love affair, sending significant sums of money to her supposed true love. Reluctantly agreeing to confront her grandmother, Elana finds herself on an unexpected cross-country road trip to West Yellowstone, Montana, in a vintage VW van.  

The journey becomes a transformative odyssey as Elana and Cecilia traverse the heart of America, unearthing family secrets, exploring the true meaning of life, and forging a bond that transcends generations. Amidst the breathtaking landscapes and the challenges of the open road, Elana must confront her own values and beliefs, ultimately questioning the price of success and the importance of love and family.


                      MY REVIEW 
   Elana is trying to figure out why her father would ask her to do what he wants her to do . When Elana's grandmother is sending great sums of money to someone in Montana . He thinks that she is loosing her mind but what Elana finds out that grandma is involved in a romance with the one true love from her past. So, when Cecilla suggests a trip in wv bus, to Montana and wants Elana to drive. Her father pushes her to do it to try and talk grandma into going into an assisted living center . Once on the road they find out what they both have been missing in their lives and what is the most important things in life. Money or love and family

  Elana is one of those characters that honestly I can relate to. She is the daughter that has to do the things that the others don't want to. She is sweet and well kind of awkward around her family. She feels like she doesn't fit in but will do what her overbearing parents want her to do. She can't say no to them when they pressure her into doing the ugly things that need to be done. She does come into her self awareness through out the book. We see her change from naivety to a woman who is in control of her life and her power with the help of the people she meets along the way. Cecilla is one of those characters that you really want as your grandmother . She is fun loving and a free spirit that will help you out and be your best friend even when you don't want it . She maybe older but man she is feisty and loves life . She knows more then people give her credit for. I want to be her when i grow up. We see them shine with the people they meet through out the book . My favourite character is Jack the rescue dog who helps both Elana and Cecilla through their journey. He is the sweetest dog who lost his master and with road trip brings him back to his former self . They all grow up on the trip.  Each character they meet through out the book help them both grow and become stronger in themselves . 

This is one of those books that you can get lost in if you wanted to. A sweet read of a trip across America where you have an adventure through out . The author takes us on such a fun ride with self discovery of what is right for each of them. I really got into the story and my fav character was Jack and I prayed that nothing would happen to him, The characters are so well written and you will fall in love with them . I can't wait for the second book in the series . I truly love this authors writing style and her story lines are action packed but she doesn't need to have them falling in and out of love . So if you want a sweet story of growth and family check it out you will not be disappointed . A great afternoon read for the cold and snowy march

GOOD TUESDAY EVERYONE

  Good Tuesday all, I am back from a little break , I hope that everyone is doing well and finding great books to read . Today I have for you book 3 in The Blood Rose Academy series . COLD BLOOD by Hp Mallory and JR. Rain 


                          BOOK BLURB 



  As a vampire, the last place I want to go is a town full of witches. But here I am, in the old west-themed town of Jinx Junction.

Good thing I’ve got Lorcan along for the ride.

So why do we find ourselves in this particular level of hell?

Because my uncle, Fox Aspen, gave me explicit instructions to meet him here. Why? I have no clue.

As to Jinx Junction? This town sucks the big one (and not in a cool, vampy sort of way), more like an unfriendly, witchy sort of way.

Not only are the inhabitants aching to hex me but there isn’t a whole lot to do.

And I’m missing my boyfriend, Rook, something fierce.

But back to the witches—the last thing I want to do is tick off anyone in this horrible place…

So, when I manage to seriously upset the sheriff of Jinx Junction, Lucretia Boline, well, I’m nervous it might be lights out for me.

Lucretia aside, I’m pretty sure there’s a reason why Uncle Fox was so emphatic about meeting him here.

I just hope that reason doesn’t get me killed.

For good.


                     MY REVIEW 
   Astrid and Lorcan are back and heading to of all places a hollow that is run buy a coven of witches that are shoot now an ask questions later. She doesn't understand why her uncle Fox is sending her there . With her new undead life she is heading there to see what is going on. Now with Lorcan on her side, she will be ok or so she thinks. With the head of the Hexus Rangers and the head of the coven. Who just wants to obliterate her from the face of the earth. She will survive and figure out why her Uncle Fox wanted her there and what is really going on in Jinx Junction. 

   Astrid and Lorcan are back and funnier than ever. Astrid is having a hard time with her undead life but Lorcan is there to help her out and guide her.  Astrid well she is still coming to terms with what happened to her at school. She is trying really hard not to be bitter about loosing her witch powers but she is also learning a lot about her other side, her fairy side. She is trying to figure out what is going on in town. When push comes to shove she truly finds out what she is made of and that it is made of iron and will . Well also get to meet some new characters . Meredith who is a young witch who can't do black magic and is really scared of her mother. She becomes a really good friend to Astrid and puts up a good fight with white magic instead of black magic the coven is known for.  Lorcan and Fox are back and well Lorcan is his debonair way that will make you smile . Fox is well you still don't know what he is up to most of the time . I love how the characters are growing and becoming more and more complex.

  I was so excited to see this book had come out . I really wanted to know how Astrid was doing since she became undead.  The story is a fun fast read that will have you giggling through out. I love this off shoot of the Haven Hollow series and it adds to the whole complexity of the hollow . The story is fun and has a lesson of you can do what needs to be done and save yourself when push comes to shove. I can't wait to see what is going on in the hollow in the next book. The characters are fun and you will fall in love with them . So if you want a fun read with great stories and fun characters check out the series .

GOOD MONDAY ALL

    Good Monday all , hope you all survived the Superbowl weekend. Today I have for you book 2 in the  Phoenxy series. PHOENYX FALLING  by Daisy St. James 


                         BOOK BLURB 



  Raised as a cut-throat supernatural assassin, Jane Grimshaw is not a wielder of weapons—she IS the weapon. When dormant powers surface after a steamy hook up with gorgeous and angst-ridden vampire, Judas, Jane finds herself embroiled in a world filled with witchcraft, danger and lust.

If you like books like The Hollow's series by Kim Harrison and J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series—or television shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and True Blood, then you will love this!


                      MY REVIEW
  Phoenyx is back and her day has gone from bad to worse . After  one night with Judas things are starting to change for Jane. She is turning into a power that out rivals most super naturals. She finds herself embroiled in a world of witches , demons , vampires full of danger and lust . Will she be able to hang on to herself and fall into the dark side and will her family be helpful and keep her out harms way. 

  Phoenyx is back and wow does she go through a change. After one night of passion she comes into her powers that have been hidden from her since birth. She really starts to figure out what she really is and watching her turn into what her destiny is . She is becoming one very complex character with such force that you can't help but love her. We also dive into some of the other characters deeper. Ash is well he is a tortured soul in vampire coating . There is a lot more to him then meets the eye. We also get to meet Hutton's brother who well just wants Jane to open up to the dark side. Cortez is back and better then ever. I truly love him and his sassiness when it comes to Jane. I must admit that these characters are getting better and better . I love how we get to see Jane's darker side and how she is trying navigate what her new powers are. 

 The second book in the series I will say is darker then the first one. We get to delve into the darker side of magic. We get to see the main character struggle and doubt herself and just trying to navigate all that is going on in her world.  You dive into the book and then you can't put it down. The author really puts our girl through so much in this book. There is so much going on in this book. We have romance, demons magic and lots of drama family and otherworldly.  So if you want a good series check it out . I can't wait to start book 3 to see where things will head for Jane and the gang.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR



New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, cats, retired greyhounds, and an old, foul-mouthed parrot. She traveled the world for seven years, attended three universities, married the vocalist of her favorite rock band, and retired from her quantitative analyst career in 2014 to write full-time.


Her interests veer toward the unconventional: bourbon, full-body tattoos, and tragic villains. Equally peculiar are her aversions to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
