  Good afternoon my peeps , I hope you are all having a great weekend and finding lots of books to read. Today I have for you a new author Daisy St James and her first book in her Phoenyx series PHOENYX IN FLAMES 

                            BOOK BLURB

 No one does deadly better than a supernatural assassin with a serious vampire problem!

Jane Grimshaw, aka The Phoenyx, is ready to take names and kick some undead butt. What's the only thing standing in her way? A hot vampire with ocean eyes and absolutely no memory of who he is or where he came from.

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 

 What does the deadliest supernatural assassin do with a vampire problem. She goes on the offensive and tries to take them out. A hot vampire who does things to her that she can't deny draw her closer to him. When the undead want to kill her and she is finding out what is happening to her body and the new powers and urges are doing to her . With the help of her friend Cortez, a sand demon and her mento Hutton. Will they be able to find out the vampires trying to kill her and find out who and what she truly is before it is too late . 

   I am going to say that Phoenyx is going to be one of my favourite heroines. She came from a bad beginning to become a kick butt paranormal assassin. She is sassy but lethal at the same time. There is a lot about her she doesn't know about her past but she is going to find out what she is sooner then later . Her guardian Hutton Grimshaw is well he is very secretive man who wants to do right by Jane aka Phoenyx , he has raised her since she was a child. He knows more then he is letting on and there are moments he isn't too truthful. You have to watch your back with him. Now my favourite character Cortez a sand demon who well you don't know if he is good or bad. He comes off as the comic relief through out the story and there are moments when you want to hug him or smack him on the back of the head because of some of the things that come out of his mouth. 

  This is a great first book in the series , the author takes us on an adventure that is fueled with adrenaline, mystery and there are some romantic times through out the book. The characters are well written and the story moves very fast. You will fall in love with the characters and the story. I really want to find out who Phoenyx really is . This would be a great book to read  on a weekend when you are snowed in . It does end with a cliff hanger but don't worry the next book is out and ready to read. So if you want a fun fast read check it out .

  Good Monday all, I hope you are all staying warm and reading some good books this cold week . Today I have for you book four  in the Misty Hollow series FANGS AND THE FURRIEST  by Hp Mallory and J.r Rain , 

                            BOOK BLURB 

  All I wanted to do was go camping.

Just to prove to myself that I could erect a tent and spend one night in the middle of BFE with only a few mosquito bites as souvenirs.

What I really wasn’t planning on was getting attacked by the biggest… wolf I’ve ever seen—not to mention the fact that wolves have no business being in Louisiana.

Fast forward to the wolf attack, and I’m now waking up to the second chapter of my middle-aged life as a vampire.

Yep, you heard me right.

Last I remembered, I was a forty-two-year-old widow with only creditors coming calling, and now I’m a blood-sucking fiend with two oversized fangs. And to make matters worse? My sire is a self-centered jerk who wants nothing to do with me.

Since I’m on a feeling-sorry-for-myself streak, might I also add that the only friend I had (one I also had a crush on) just so happens to show up in this weird outpost of civilization known as Misty Hollow?

What are the chances, right?

Well, turns out the chances are pretty good because Thorn actually isn’t human at all. In fact, he’s some sort of mystical creature called a ‘griffin’ and he’s also working for the mayor of Misty Hollow.

And let’s not even discuss the enigma that is Fox Aspen, a monster hunter sent to Misty Hollow to wrangle the wolf (turns out it’s a werewolf) that attacked me.

Fox is some kind of fae prince, and he’s also so hot he makes me go wobbly in the knees.

Wobbly knees or not, this girl needs to figure out what the heck is going on in this town, pronto, because something wicked this way is definitely coming from the swamp.

And I’m pretty sure that ‘something wicked’ is threatening my undead life…

                       MY REVIEW 

  Welcome back to Misty hollow where things aren't what you think they are and the paranormal creatures come to stay and be safe. Enter Charlie who honestly just wants to go camping when things go from sleeping in a ruined tent to being chased down and attacked by a wolf, well the largest wolf she has ever seen.  When she wakes up there is so much she must come to terms with . The very first thing well she is no longer alive , Allistair the mayor of the hollow saved her but turned her into a vampire at the same time . So now what is a middle aged woman who just got turned into a vampire going to do with her undead life. Now that she is fighting for her undead life and actually kind of falling for Fox the fae king ( you will remember him from Haven hollow. ) Will they survive what is hunting them in the swamp and will Charlie come out of this with her undead life .

  I love that the authors add a new character to each of the books in the series . Charlette or Charlie as her friends call her . Is a middle aged divorced woman who wants to get a new start in her life. When she gets involved with the paranormal world after being bit. At first she is a scared of everything woman who really just wants to have a life but doesn't know how to do it. When she becomes a vampire you see her start to blossom around Thorne and Fox but she is still that shy woman who sometimes just wants to hide . Thorn well he is more then he seems he is a werewolf who well is as hot as well as sweet and he is on protection duty of the hollow .  Fox well he is if you know him, he is sexy and kind of arrogant and he is well a king in his world . He really does take a shine to Charlie and when push comes to shove he will fight for and with her. 

   I am glad they went back to the hollow and wrote a 4th book . I truly like the characters and the way that they are evolving with each new character addition. The characters are well written and get more and more complex . The authors love to put the characters through so much with each story and then tie the story together in each new book. This is a fun fast read that you can read in an evening . So if you want a fun series to read in a snow storm check out the swamps of Louisiana and the MIsty Hollow crew of mermaids , vampire, fairies , were gators and so much more

   Good morning my peeps, well winter has finally hit us here on the farm. so it is the perfect time to grab a good book and a cup of tea and read the day away.  Today I have for you COMMA- KAZE  by Mellanie Szereto.

                            BOOK BLURB

 Loss brings them together. Will their pact help them find love and happily-ever-after?

English professor Elijah M. Clayton, Jr., (34) has promised his dying cousin he’ll raise her unborn daughter, but his search for a wife has failed miserably. Social awkwardness related to being on the autism spectrum leads to his only decent speed-dating prospect—Beatrix-35—calling him a pervert before the start of their first official date.
Plumber Beatrix Glouster (35) likes Elijah-34 and has high hopes she’s found a good guy until he asks questions that trigger painful memories of losing her premature son, her subsequent inability to have children, and her husband leaving her. An early morning plumbing emergency brings her face-to-cute-backside with last night’s disappointment.

Their lives are forever changed when a call from Elijah’s cousin summoning him to the hospital for the birth of her child interrupts an unexpectedly hot kiss. Only deep commitment will help Elijah and Beatrix avoid the prospective emotional risk of an impromptu marriage, his communication issues, and raising their orphaned newborn charge together.

                  MY REVIEW 


   Elijah is on a mission, he has promised his dying cousin , he would take care of her newborn daughter . But he is failing miserably, no one is good enough and being on the spectrum is making things even worse for Elijah. Until he meets Beatrix at a speed dating event . She seems to like him and he does like her but things don't go as planned for the couple . After misunderstandings and a hasty marriage they are navigating parenthood and family interference that would drive any couple crazy. Will they be able to figure things out and raise the sweetest little girl ever. 

   Elijah and Beatrix well are such sweet characters . Elijah is the sweetest guy ever but he is also on the spectrum and has trouble picking up cues in social settings . He feels like he is not worthy of what he has promised his cousin. Beatrix is sad and wants to find love of her own after loosing a child and a divorce she just wants to feel love again .  They really get each other Beatrix really knows how to calm Elijah and get him out of his head and Elijah is the healing balm that she needs for her heart . they really do work good together and they do find their way to forever. 

  This is a story that is very sweet, the characters are well written and you will absolutely fall in love with them. The author has written a sweet story of acceptance and unconditional love for each other and for family. It is a short read that you can read in an afternoon. So if you want a sweet read check it out

Books to curl up with: HAPPY NEW YEAR

 HAPPY NEW YEAR and welcome to the first blog post of 2024. Welcome back peeps, I hope that everyone had a great Christmas season and got some really good books to read . Today I have for you a new author to me Abbie Roads and her book SHATTERED DREAMS 

                            BOOK BLURB

 When Helena Grayse is released from prison, all she wants is to say a final goodbye to her old life. But when a man finds her trespassing on his property, instead of turning her in, he takes her in. Accepts her. Loves her.

But someone decides to serve Helena with a death sentence.

Shattered Dreams is the third book in Abbie Roads’ Beautiful Nightmare Series of dark romantic thrillers. It features a felon heroine who never thought she deserved love. If you devour true crime and romance novels then you’ll love a series that combines both in a roller-coaster ride of danger, mind games, and swoon worthy love.

                      MY REVIEW 
 When you are wrongly accused of murder all you want to do is do your time and get out . That is what Helena wanting to do, get out and say good bye to her past. When one cold night Thomas finds her freezing in a tent on the property. He takes her in and they begin to fall for each other. They complete each other but when someone wants her dead and and Thomas is taken from her . It will take everything in her power to find him and keep herself safe and to bring the murderer to justice. 

   This is one of those books that when you start you can't put down. The characters are very well written. Helena is a survivor after all that she has been through some people would be bitter . Not Helena she just wants to say good bye to her past and find her way in life . But, she is stronger than anyone realizes and will fight for those who she loves and even fight for her own life as hard as she can. Thomas is a reluctant hero, he is sweet and shy but there is such a sadness to him . He has no colour in his life after all the abuse he was dealt in his life. He is also a survivor and wants to be loved for himself . They are broken but together they can be fixed. 

  This is a story that is about what two broken people can do to come together. The author takes us on a very emotional rollercoaster ride of emotions . The characters will jump off the page and grab you by the heart strings and pull you in. There are triggers in here that some people might not be comfortable with including sa and violence.  So if you want to check out it out , I promise you will not be disappointed .
