Review: Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch by Ashleigh G
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An entertaining and engaging second chance romance
Chad and Lola are a vortex of complications
Two strong dominant personalities that are vying for the tap out -
Who will finally submit? Or will they both be left battered and bruised only to find out too late that they are equal in their thick-headed stubbornness ?
Suspense - Romance - Mystery and Angst blended together to give the quintessential one-two knockout read

Review: The Demon's Possession

The Demon's Possession by Kiersten Fay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Paranormal meets Sci-fi
Suspense -Action - Angst and Romance made this an engaging and exciting first in series
A well-developed storyline that, for the most part, flowed smoothly. There were a couple scenes that did drag, but overall the plot line was well executed and easy to follow
The characters were intricate and well developed, they complimented one another to create a very entertaining cast
The world building was unique - I greatly enjoyed the mixing of the paranormal with sci-fi
Looking forward to reading πŸ“štwo

Review: Archangel

Archangel by Ava Martell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"Regrets are for tomorrow"
The journey continues with Alissa 's story -
Out little band of misfits just got bigger and badder (I am aware that is not a word but it fits our group perfectly)
Right from the beginning, I was hooked - you know those stories that just suck you in - the ones that you want to peek ahead so bad - just to make sure everyone is okay - like you can do something to help the characters if you know what is going to happen before them - yeah this is one of those
All I can say without spoiling this - is put your trays in the upright position and buckle up because you are in for one 😈 of a ride
Strong writing - Well-defined characters - Smooth plot lines - All the things that make a book a true adventure

Review: Sanctum

Sanctum by Raven Dark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I'm broken -
The guys breached all my defenses and left my heart shattered by the end
I don't know how Dark does it but this series just gets better as we go deeper - More action - More mystery and suspense - Oh and the romance ♨️ Red hot *Note this is a dark read
Book two picks up right where book one left off -
Watch for the clues - the subtle hints - there is a lot more going on that we see on the surface - and I absolutely devoured the breadcrumb trails that Dark left for us throughout this read - I think I have pieced a few things together and am dying to get to book three and see if I am right
This does end on a cliffhanger and I strongly suggest reading book one

Review: Ruthless

Ruthless by Dani RenΓ©
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As we have come to expect from this series Suspense and Angst in spades
Callan is definitely Ruthless and a whole lot more - Out of all the male leads in this series thus far I would have to say he stands by himself in a very dark physical and psychological pool - I am not sure if I love him or loathe him πŸ’˜
Madison for me was a solid female lead overall, at times I do wish she would have spoken up sooner or made her feelings clearer -though I admire her backbone and the fact she decided what she wanted and went for it
As for the supporting cast .. Loathed -absolutely loathed most of the men in Madison's life. As for the out of control deliciously sinful men of the club, I can only say I look forward to the next book with bells on my 00.
This one is a bit on the darker side than the previous ones just an FYI

Review: His Captive Kitten

His Captive Kitten by Measha Stone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Intense - Captivating
This is an engaging and suspenseful romance with all kinds of "OMG" "NO Way" and "He!! No, you didn't" moments sprinkled with plot twists you never see coming.
The characters are easy to connect with and the story flows smoothly
The chemistry between John and Julie is off the charts - there are times I am not sure if they are going to shred each other or love each other - seriously though kitten has some claws!
Julie is such a strong and quick-witted heroine - I enjoyed her quirks and her passion - she knows when to fight and when to submit - and she isn't whiny about the hand she was dealt either!
John - How do you describe him - there were times I wanted to smack him upside the head (seriously) I got why he did what he did but it does not mean that I agreed with all his choices
This was my first book in this series - it can be read as a standalone - just be …

Review: Gun Shy

Gun Shy by Lili St. Germain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dark ✅
Engaging ✅
Twisted ✅✅
One shocking revelation after another - a perfect blend of horror and romance - though I would lead more toward the horror side
I found myself glued to the pages - Each page seemed to bring a new moment of clarity - one moment I was basking in love and innocence - the next drowning in the blood left in the wake of the depraved
A very engaging read - both psychologically and physically dark
Definitely kept me on my toes,

Review: Stolen

Stolen by Raven Dark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

No spoilers
I wanted more - so much more
This is a surprising first in series -
The world building and character development are created in a way that easily draws you in and keeps you on edge - we are given just enough detail to get us attached to the charters, to immerse us in their world -while keeping us on edge constantly, wanting to know more - I was eagerly turning the pages to get my answers while fighting my inner child not to peek ahead
This does end on a cliffhanger... .

Review: Dragon Equinox: A Reverse Harem Dragon Romance

Dragon Equinox: A Reverse Harem Dragon Romance by Ophelia Bell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Absolutely loved that Numa finally got her HEA
She was so afraid that not having "the dream" like her siblings meant she was never to find her other half and then to have the weight of believing her choice would no longer be based on love but on strength - it broke my heart
This was an engaging and emotional read - I love the way the characters sprang from the pages - the story flows without pause -easily bringing the reader on an exciting and tantalizing journey that will leave you breathless
And wait for it - there is a twist that is guaranteed to bunch up your knickers
This is one reverse harem you do not want to miss
