Review: Deadly Persuasion by N. Heinz

Deadly Persuasion by N. Heinz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

No Spoilers - I suggest you go in blind - trust me on this
INTENSE
I was absolutely enthralled from beginning to end.

Devilan - He is a mystery that keeps reappearing - he radiates a darkness that calls to her pain
Veronica - awash in sorrow seeking affirmation answers his call
Together they will burn like none before them

I do not want to give any spoilers because this was one twisted turn after another - on my WTH just happened scale this would be level catastrophic
If you want intense, suspenseful dark and twisted this is your read

Review: Alpha Pair by Brenda Sparks

Alpha Pair by Brenda Sparks

"The Greatest pleasure of life is love" Sir W. Temple

This is a new author for me and when I accepted a courtesy copy for my reading enjoyment I was unaware it was not first in series - What can I say I like to go in blind.
This does work okay as a standalone, though IMO it will be that much better if you start from the beginning. There are a lot of great characters within this story and I feel I would have been more vested in them if I had read the previous books.
The characters, both lead and supporting, are detailed and seem to fortify each other quite seamlessly - the author definitely provides a well-rounded cast
The storyline flows well-providing mystery and suspense that undeniably kept me vested and engaged. I had a lot of questions as I read and I believe that most would have been answered with prior knowledge had I read the previous books in this series.
I really enjoyed the back and forth banter between Tatiana and Demetri - they are…

Review: Secrets in Blood by Patricia D. Eddy

Secrets in Blood by Patricia D. Eddy

Emotional - Engaging - a unique must-read!
This was the first in a duet, the second half is already released, though I am hoping the author continues this as a series
Secrets in Blood starts out a bit on the slow side - there is a lot of details that are presented within the first few chapters but I was so thankful for the slow build - once the adventure begins there really isn't a place to take a breather - Lots of angst and "Oh no you didn't moments" sprinkled with enough plot twists and surprises that felt like I was on a tilt-a-whirl - then we have the romance between Eva and Nic, this was beautifully portrayed, allowing the reader to easily follow their journey and fall in love with love
The Details:
The Hand of God Ministries is on a mission to ensure that the vampire race is eradicated. A team of top scientists is brought together to research a serum that will accomplish this. They have everything they need except a test su…
