Review: Dragon in the Mist

Dragon in the Mist Dragon in the Mist by Julia Mills
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Talk about a knight in shining armor or in this case dragon in shining scales saving his one true witchy mate. This is a story of love will concur all. Both Uther and Mara are having to fight their own way up from the darkness but with each other things become a bit easier. Julia Mills sure knows how to weave a dragon love story and keep you wanting for more.

Some more things are coming to light for Justice but even more things are being kept from her. Being a Doll comes with a price. Love is truly blooming and life isn't getting any easier for Justice but she is very determined now. I definitely can't wait for more of this series.

Review: Finding Perfection

Finding Perfection Finding Perfection by Cassandra Giovanni
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a story of lost love, new love, forgiveness, and finding who they are again. Some people think that once a heart is broken it will never be able to be put back together the same way. It's not meant to be put back the same, it is meant to grow and be flawed, this is how we live, learn, and love. River, West, Adam, and Tara learn this the hard way throughout this series. They learned to move forward and to accept the past, not the easy way either. I love how Cassandra brings out emotion and true feelings with these characters, true to life.

Review: Destiny

Destiny Destiny by A.D. Starrling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Past comes to haunt, new and old enemies appear, and lives are at stake. The Crovir and Bastian families unit to conquer the demons of the past and make wrongs right. Not too many authors carry a series over to the children but AD Starrling doesn't leave you hanging with this final book in the series.

Review: Ethereal King

Ethereal King Ethereal King by Ariana Hawkes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How would you react if out of no where something grabbed you and flew you up into the sky albeit rescuing you from certain disaster but still? Personally, it would scare the bejeezus our of me as it does Josie. Xephyr is a prince and feels he should be treated as such. The 2 clash with Josie not taking Xephyr's demands lightly. His clan isn't thrilled with their princes choices, either. I love how this story ties in with Ariana's Shiftr series but isn't part of it at the same time.

Review: Frankie Hope Valley BBW Dating App Romance, #13)

Frankie Hope Valley BBW Dating App Romance, #13) Frankie Hope Valley BBW Dating App Romance, #13) by Ariana Hawkes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Frankie being the newest member in the clan, is getting his well deserved story. He has been through heck and back and it seems with no end in sight at times. Then he meets Selma and things change but he is refusing to listen to his bear. Fake dating, secret photos, isn't Frankie's thing as he doesn't like lying or secrets. Selma is just trying to keep everyone happy and keep up her charade, but everything is starting to fall in around her. These 2 make one heck of a pair if only one of them would open their eyes to see it.

Review: Academy of Magic

Academy of Magic Academy of Magic by Linsey Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While Bree and Ana are learning how to get control of their magic and be able to use it better, Bree is on a mission to stop whatever is trying to harm her family and new found friends with a little help from a Celtic God named Cade. Also learning more about what she is slowly. I love watching characters grow throughout a series and Linsey definitely doesn't disappoint.

Review: Tempted by Darkness

Tempted by Darkness Tempted by Darkness by Valerie Twombly
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

Out of all the angels in this series so far, Tegan is the one that won my heart. He isn't searching for a mate he just wants to be left alone to fight demons and keep everyone safe. Then Rhea comes along and everything changes along with secrets being revealed and deceit. I love when an author gives a character a second chance at love and Valerie did just that with this book.

L.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat. Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards. She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

Adriana Locke:

A contemporary romance author running on coffee and sticky kisses from my rowdy four little boys. From Indiana, I’m a true Mid-Westerner. Life, for me, is about family, faith, and food. When I’m not running my kiddos around or having a lunch date of fajitas with my husband (and high school sweetheart), you can find me outside. I love a good sunny day almost as much as I love candy, random quotes, and steamy bad boys in fantastic books. I’m on nearly every social media platform. Please find me on the ones you frequent – I love chatting with readers.

Mandi Beck:

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer. A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.

Emma Scott:

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Charleigh Rose:

We are a duo of an international best-selling author and a blogger who teamed up to write the taboo, thought-provoking stories we want our audience to have--without filters. Both Charleigh and Rose are committed to giving you witty, sexy, intelligent novels that will leave you wanting more.

Ella Fox:

When she’s not writing, Ella indulges the gypsy in her blood and travels the country. Ella loves reading, movies, music, buying make-up, reading Tmz, Twitter and pedicures… not necessarily in that order. She has a wild sense of humor and loves to laugh. Her favorite thing in the world is hanging out with her family and watching comedy movies.

Sara Ney:

Meghan Quinn:

A BLONDE AT HEART Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Kate Stewart:

Kate Stewart lives in Charleston, S.C. with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. A native of Dallas, Kate moved to Charleston three weeks after her first visit, dropping her career of 8 years, and declaring it her creative muse. Kate pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it's what she loves as a reader. A lover of all things '80s and '90s, especially John Hughes films and rap, she dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity only and does a horrible job of playing the ukulele. Aside from running a mile without collapsing, traveling is the only other must on her bucket list. On occasion, she does very well at vodka.

Rochelle Paige:

Rochelle Paige is the Amazon bestselling author of nineteen books. She absolutely adores reading and her friends growing up used to tease her when she trailed after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. She loves stories with alpha males, sassy heroines, hot sex and happily ever afters. She is a bit of a genre hopper in both her reading and her writing. So far she's written books in several romance sub-genres including new adult, contemporary, paranormal and romantic suspense. She is the mother of two wonderful sons who inspired her to chase her dream of being an author. She wants them to learn from her that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

Undercover Magic Undercover Magic by Linsey Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am so happy to finally get to "meet" Bree and Ana and get to know them a lot more. This book set this series up for a magical and fun ride, from finding out what kind of unknown they are to finding out what haunts them. I can't wait to see what more is in store for these two.
