REVIEW - Night's Honor (Elder Races #7) by Thea Harrison

The Book
Release Date: 2 September 2014
Goodreads Link

In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, a woman finds herself in need of protection-and seduced by honour . . . 

On the run from her former employer, Tess knows that she's vulnerable on her own amongst the Elder Races. That's why she decides to audition to become the human attendant of a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind demesne. But while her position affords her the safety she seeks, her protector turns out to be more than she bargained for.

The right-hand man of the Nightkind King, Xavier del Torro is both terrifying and alluring. While his true nature frightens Tess, she can't ignore the appeal of his innate sense of integrity and self-restraint. Thrown into Xavier's world, Tess must quickly learn to navigate the dangers-both to her life, and to her heart. But the biggest threat comes from her own past . . .

My Review  4 STARS
In this book we get to see the Nightkind kings second in command Vampire Xavier del Torro and human Tess.  Tess has gotten herself into trouble and sees that her only way out is to try and get an attendant position with a vampire, not that she expects to be one of the very few selected.

Xavier sees something in her that fascinates him, the woman who seems so frightened of him as a vampire however, shows strength and does not back down from her fear.

This book shows Tess's strength of character and how she ends up not only changing her way of thinking towards the vampire, but in how she eventually manages to get herself out of her trouble with Xavier at her side and help from the Nightkind king.

Granted there is not much action until 80% we get a fascinating look into the world of the vampires and their attendents.

I look forward to reading on and seeing where the rest of this series goes.

REVIEW - Peanut Goes to School (Elder Races #6.7) by Thea Harrison

The Book
Release Date: 30 June 2014
Goodreads Link

This is a short story (15,100 words or 55 pages) intended for readers of the Elder Races who enjoy Liam Cuelebre, aka Peanut, as a character. 

Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon.

Dragos’s son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart.

A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more Power than almost anyone else. In an effort to give him a taste of normality, no matter how fleeting, his parents Pia and Dragos enroll him in first grade.

They hope school will help teach Liam how to relate to others, a vital skill that will help him control his growing Power. But school has a surprising number of pitfalls, and relating to others can be a tricky business.

When a classmate is threatened, Liam must quickly learn self-control, how to rein in his instincts, and govern his temper, because there’s no doubt about it—he is fast becoming one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the Elder Races.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is such a sweet little short story that focuses on Liam, the son of Pia and Dragos and the events that happen around his first day of school.

Liam is a little boy who at six months old is as big as a 4-5 year old, has brains much older than his years and is learning how to cope around children his own age.  He learns that not everyone likes him and how he has to navigate around bullies and someone that he quite likes.

We still get to see more of Pia and Dragos as they help him with his feelings and to navigate the world around him and shower him with love and support.

I really enjoyed this story.

REVIEW - Pia Saves the Day (Elder Races #6.6) by Thea Harrison

The Book
Release Date: 21 June 2014
Goodreads Link

In the latest story of the Elder Races, two mates face their deadliest challenge yet—each other… 

Pia and Dragos’s magical young son Liam (the Peanut), is growing at an unprecedented rate, and if that isn't enough, he is also exhibiting new, and unpredictable, magical gifts. To protect him, the concerned parents decide to move to upstate New York. 

Both Dragos and Pia relish the idea of leaving behind the city. They finally have the space to indulge their Wyr side, and Liam can grow in safety. It’s a breath of fresh air—literally—but their idyllic situation is shattered when Dragos is injured in a freak accident. 

Stripped of his memory and bereft of Pia’s taming influence, there’s nothing holding back Dragos’s darkest side. And in order to restore her family and save her mate, Pia must confront the most powerful menace in Elder Races history. 

It’s going to take more than a penny to fix this…

My Review  4 STARS
This book totally rocks.  We get to see the true side of Dragos, the strength that Pia has and her patience and we get to see a little more of the very special person that is Liam, their child.

I love how carefully Pia connects with injured Dragos and slowly helps him not only to heal but to slowly become back to a part of who he was and not only that, to realise again that Piais such a very special part of his life.

Loved that love can conquer all in this book.

REVIEW - Dragos Takes a Holiday (Elder Races #6.5) by Thea Harrison

The Book
Release Date: 28 November 2013
Goodreads Link

The Bermuda Triangle. Pirates. The Peanut. What could possibly go wrong?

Dragos Cuelebre needs a vacation. So does Pia, his mate. When the First Family of the Wyr head to Bermuda for some much needed R&R, it's no ordinary undertaking - and no ordinary weekend in the sun. Between hunting for ancient treasure buried beneath the waves and keeping track of their son, Liam—a.k.a. Peanut, whose Wyr abilities are manifesting far ahead of schedule—it’s a miracle that Pia and Dragos can get any time together.

They're determined to make the most of each moment, no matter who tries to get in their way.

And did we mention pirates?

For fans of DRAGON BOUND and LORD’S FALL, passion, playfulness, and adventure abound in this Elder Races novella.

My Review  4 STARS
If you have read any of the previous book you will have heard of Pia and Dragos and i am really happy that we get to see more of this main pair.

Baby Liam is growing at a rate of knots and is learning some new tricks, Pia also manages to get Dragos on a much needed holiday where he is enjoying himself with his family and is also on the hunt for gold.

I loved reading the bits from Liam's point of view and really enjoyed his character and look forward to reading more from him and his family.

Goodreads link

Two opponents must confront the cause of their obsessive fury in the latest Novel of the Elder Races . . .

Each fight draws forth more passion - culminating in an explosively sexual confrontation. But when their mission reveals real danger, Aryal and Quentin must resolve their differences in ways beyond the physical, before the entire Wyr is threatened . . . 

'Thea Harrison is a master storyteller.' 
-Christine Feehan, No 1 New York Times bestselling author

My Review  4 STARS
The book focuses on Harpy Aryal one of Dragos's sentinels and Pia's friend and new sentinel Quentin, two people who hate each other.

This book is packed with action from the beginning and i loved how the author sieved their tale around love and hate, until both end up clearing the air, working well together and discovering things that they actually have in common.  Their raw animalness and pushing each other until they both get piece was well done.

I had been unsure of Aryal in previous books, however i really grew to like her and respect her in this book and Quention was just perfect for her.

REVIEW - The Wicked (Elder Races #5.5) by Thea Harrison

The Book
Release Date: 2 July 2013
Goodreads Link

The adventure of a lifetime might just end in turmoil, but when it includes meeting your future mate, who gives a hoot?

A Novella of the Elder Races

For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia’s new job is a dream come true. She has been hired as part of a team to help manage the safe transportation of the collection of books owned by the Vampyre sorceress Carling Severan. The fact that the library is located on a mysterious island in an Other land only heightens the adventure.

Head of security for the expedition, Sebastian Hale is tired of his rootless life of adventure and finds himself attracted to the calm, beautiful librarian. But he is living a personal nightmare. He has been hit with a curse that is slowly taking away his sight, and he doesn’t know if he will survive the results.

But the powerful feelings growing between them, along with Sebastian’s inner turmoil, take a backseat when they learn there is a traitor lurking among their expedition team. With Elder Races politics and a priceless library on the line, they’ll have to rely on each other to survive the experience.

Warning: When a librarian who likes to nest meets an owl Wyr who has always lived for adventure, their romance won’t just be fly-by-night…

My Review  5 STARS
I started to read this series years ago and at the time had read all of the books, the rest of the series got away from me, however i never forgot this author and have always intended to get back to the series.  You do not need to read the rest of the series to read this one, but you will not be able to help yourself when you get started with this authors work.

This novella is fast paced and you cannot help but get wept up into the story and when the end comes, it feels far too soon.

Olivia and Sebastian seem to have something from the moment that they meet, especially when in from of everyone shy Olivia calls the Djinn a dimwit.

We do get surprise characters from other boos, but the story mainly focuses on the fledgling beginning of Olivia and Sebastian as they navigate betrayal and a relationship together while doing work on a remote island.

Cannot wait to read more from this series.

REVIEW - Playing With Fire (Sultry Southern Nights #1) by Deborah Fletcher Mello

The Book
Release Date: 24 February 2015
Goodreads Link

With his beloved mother gone and no father he's ever known, the business is Romeo's everything. It's a place where anything can happen--and the evening one gorgeous young woman and one intriguing old musician walk into the bar--and into Romeo's life--it does.

For Romeo to move forward in love, he'll have to learn some devastating truths--and James "Piano Man" Burdett is there to teach him. And with Taryn's help, Romeo just may accept that like music, life sometimes needs to be improvised. . .

My Review  3 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Kensington Books for an honest review**

I wanted to like this book more than i did, however i don't know if it is just being English, but i really struggled with the speech from the South.  It just sounded weird when reading it and i ended up speed reading the book.  I also have no idea where the title matches up with the book.

I liked the story line, however the big reveal was something that i had already guessed, and Romeo seemed like a very likeable character.

There were too many points of view trying to round out the story, it would have been better in my opinion if it had been just two points of view max.

It was an ok read, it just did nothing for me until the end where we got more action and even then the timeline suddenly sped up.

REVIEW - The Other Billionaire Brother by Krista Lake

The Book
Release Date: 12 July 2019
Goodreads Link

The man I love is getting married. And it isn't to me. 

I've been in love with Jonathan for as long as I can remember. I loved him as a girl. I loved him as a teenager. I loved him as an adult. I love him still. 

But he doesn't love me. How could he? He's a billionaire and I'm just the butler's daughter. But when I attend a party in my Gucci dress and fancy heels, he sees me in a whole new light. 

And it couldn't have come at a worse time. His high-powered wedding is in two weeks. 

It falls to his older brother, Christopher, to protect Jonathan from himself. As always. And this time, that means spiriting me away and tempting me with my dream job on a tropical island. 

Here, I learn that Christopher is so much more than I ever gave him credit for. He gets me in a way no man ever has. His body completes me in ways I didn't even know possible. And the way he looks at me makes me think he could be the one. 

I've always been in love with Jonathan, but now that I've been with Christopher, I find I can't choose. Some people go their whole lives without finding one love of their life. Now I have to decide between two.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author and Hidden Gems for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

When you read this book you ca certainly see that the author got her inspiration from Sabrina, however she has certainly made the story her own.

Nora is the butlers daughter and has been away for some years in the hospitality industry and is only coming home as her father has been in ill health and she wants to spend time with him even if he is now ok.

Jonathan Lewis has always been the object of of her affection and is a bit of a playboy unable to settle down, however a merger is only likely to happen if he gets engaged to a certain woman.  Nora is upset to find that Jonathan may be engaged, but when Jonathan actually notices Nora for the fist time and says that he is not engaged, she hopes she will get what she has always wanted from him.

Enter Christopher who is the head of the family business and has always had a thing for blinkered Nora.

This is certainly a fun summer holiday read and very enjoyable and if you have not read or watched Sabrina before, you will certainly get the gist of it from this book.

REVIEW - A Wedding One Christmas by Therese Beharrie

The Book
Release Date: 19 November 2018
Goodreads Link

Of all the weddings in all the world, Angie Roux had to be mistaken for a bridesmaid in this one.

Caledon, South Africa, is supposed to be just a stop on the way to Christmas in Cape Town, part of Angie’s long-avoided homecoming. She never expected to star in a bizarre comedy of errors, but here she is: convincing a handsome stranger to be her fake boyfriend for the day. 

Ezra Johnson, the handsome stranger in question, turns out to be a pleasant distraction from both the wedding and thoughts of her first family Christmas without her father. And he seems to loathe weddings just as much as she does. He’s the perfect temporary companion.

But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours. Including a connection so strong it tempts them both into thinking of something more permanent…

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise : all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

This book is approximately 70,000 words

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This story takes mainly takes place over a period of 24 hours and i really wanted to like this one more, but to be honest it seemed such a long 24 hours before anything happened other than them just talking and hashing out their pasts with a stranger.

Both Ezra and Angie have a past that they are going home to face, but after talking to each other they come out with more realisations and home truths than they expected along with a connection to someone that they have never felt before in more than the physical.

There is a lot of emotional talk and reflection within each others lives a few comedic moments and an interfering old man that pops up when not wanted, and then turns out he's quite sweet.

It's a good read if you like the emotional talk, but certainly not if you want lots of action and things going on, its more of a very slow burn.

REVIEW - Risking it all for Love (Magnolia Valley #6) by Cora Reed

The Book
Release Date: 9 July 2019
Goodreads Link

The line between enemy and ally, between frustration and desire, between hate and love, gets blurrier as these two strong-willed people meet their match for the first time. 
He’s used to getting his way…
This new project will get the company back on its feet. Or it would, if archaeologist Freya Carmichael hadn’t put her nose where it didn’t belong. Now he can’t log or develop his own land, until she’s done digging up some old pottery shards. 
Well, he’s not going to take it lying down. He’s going to convince her to go dig somewhere else. Unfortunately, he can’t be around her for more than two minutes without getting into an argument. 
She’s the archaeologist in his way….
This dig is going to be Freya’s greatest accomplishment, so she’s not going to let anything stand in her way. Not petty pranks or mean comments or threatening phone calls. 
Her biggest obstacle is Augustus. He’s the most infuriating man she’s ever met. He knows exactly what buttons to push to make her temper flare. 
But as she gets to know him, she sees there’s so much more to the man than she thought. Beneath the rough exterior is an exceptional and fascinating man. And he knows how to push her buttons to make more than just her temper flare. 
But can she really trust a man who has made it clear he wants nothing more than for her to stop digging and leave? When someone determined to put an end to her dig goes too far, endangering her, she doesn’t have much choice but to trust him. 
Can these two enemies find common ground or—possibly—even the love story neither of them thought they'd find?
This book is the sixth book in the MAGNOLIA VALLEY series. It can be read as a standalone or as part of a larger story line.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Another instalment in the Magnolia Valley series that does not disappoint.  I have been looking forward to Augustus's story for a while.  He certainly is the strong silent type, especially is he is doing something nice that people just do not expect from him, and he does not defend himself from others.

Freya and Augustus have butted heads in previous books, now however after agreeing to a truce to see what each other do for their jobs, they find a mutual respect for each other along with feelings they did not expect.

Both find each other saying things they have told no other and they also stand up for each other to the surprise of friends.  

Really enjoyed their story and how the previous characters got involved too and we saw more of their lives.  I look forward to seeing Margot and Simon in the next book.

REVIEW - Staged (Exodus End #3) by Olivia Cunning

The Book
Release Date: 13 November 2018
Goodreads Link

The world is his stage…
Exodus End’s legendary drummer, Steve Aimes, plays the role of a rock star better than anyone in the business. Since his divorce, he’s embraced every rock ’n’ roll stereotype and uses those vices to keep women at a safe emotional distance, while keeping their physical distance recklessly close. He vowed years ago to never give any woman the power to break his heart again. He just has to keep playing the part, and never drop his guard, and stop obsessing over the keyboardist in their new opening act. He didn’t want Roux’s band on this tour in the first place, but somehow she shattered his barriers without even trying. The only way he knows to save his heart from breaking is to make her his forever, so why does she keep pushing him away?

The stage is her world…
Roux Williams knows an opportunity like this only comes around once in a lifetime. Her band, Baroquen, has finally gotten their big break and are opening for Exodus End and Sinners—two powerhouses of rock—on the European leg of their world tour. She refuses to screw up this opportunity by getting involved with Steve Aimes no matter how gorgeous, sexy and surprisingly attentive he is. She can’t deny her attraction to him—the man has the body of a god and the face of a model—but he’s absolutely off limits. Maybe a lust-crazed weekend on a private island will get him out of her system. Or maybe she’ll fall even harder. Once the tour is over they can date, but until then she must keep her distance, because mixing business with pleasure is not only tabloid fodder, it’s professional suicide. But damn, why does he have to be so stubbornly irresistible?

When their worlds are rattled by a ploy staged to destroy them, Exodus End’s infamous bad boy and Baroquen’s not-yet-famous good girl must figure out a way to have it all and each other.

This is book 3 in the Exodus End World Tour series (a spin-off of the Sinners on Tour series). Book 1 (Insider) and Book 2 (Outsider) are also available, but this book can be read as a stand-alone.

My Review  5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Kobo Writing Life, for an honest review**

This is the third book in the series and can be read as a stand alone and we are still following the members of the rock band Exodus End.

Steve Aimes is the drummer for the band and has been a bit of a party animal and man whore since his divorce from Bianca many years ago, however when he meets Roux he changes.  Steve is a man with a big heart who can only love completely, he truest has a soft heart and Roux just does it for him.

Roux is in an up and coming band and initially things do not go well with Steve, however he keeps doing sweet things for her, but it is her promise to her band that stops her from anything more with Steve initially.

As Steve and Roux get to know each other they cannot help but get closer and we also see more from The American Enquirer publication and the characters behind it.  The plot thickens even further.

The start of this book happened along side the other books, then takes a leap to the european tour where we see previous characters in their happy lives together.

I look forward to Dares book next and i also look forward to see what will happen with Max.  The books cannot come out fast enough.  There is also an idea that the girls from the band Baroquen will get their own books too in the future.

Reagan Elliot should be living her dream...

She’s touring with Exodus End as their new rhythm guitarist and gaining more notoriety and fame than she ever imagined possible.

She’s earned the devoted love of not only one, but two spectacular men. Her committed threesome with sexy guitarist Trey Mills and her hunky bodyguard Ethan Conner is stable, loving, deep, and satisfying for all involved.

But sometimes the world sees things differently and is determined to destroy what it doesn’t understand.

Can Reagan’s relationship with Trey and Ethan survive the cruel backlash of the media, her family, and a bigoted public? Or will the talented musician lose everything she holds dear in the face of her own burgeoning doubts?

Outsider is the second book in the Exodus End World Tour series. It’s also the sequel to Double Time, the fifth book in the Sinners on Tour series.

My Review  5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Vulpine Press, for an honest review**

We first met Trey, Ethan and Reagan in The Sinners series and i am so glad that we get to see more of this dynamic trio that compliment each other in all the ways that they are different.

Some parts of this book cross over with book one, however this book can very much be read as a stand alone story, however, if you then do not find yourself just having to read the rest of the series i will not be surprised.

We get the points of view from all three of our main characters the the reactions those around them who do not already know about their relationship.

The plot also thickens in regards to how rumours are being spread by an American magazine in spreading lies, half truths and damming true stories about the band that had not been release before, especially about Reagan.

The trio have to work harder with their relationship as they travel past jealousy, old loves, feeling left out or hurt as they are not allowed to share their feeling in a public place freely.

I really enjoyed this book and i am itching at the bit to read the next book in the series.

REVIEW - Insider (Exodus End #1) by Olivia Cunning

The Book
Release Date: 30 June 2015
Goodreads Link

Toni wants to be an insider.

She’s finally ready to rock... 
Toni Nichols set aside her dreams to raise her little sister, but now she's reaching for the stars as the creator of a revolutionary interactive biography about Exodus End. She’s on tour with the rock band to immerse herself in their world, but how will she ever gain the trust of four veteran superstars who've been burned by the media before? Nobody said this was going to be easy. Then again, good things can come in hard packages. 

He's always ready to roll… 
Adrenaline junkie Logan Schmidt lives for the rush of playing his bass guitar before thousands of screaming fans. When he's not performing onstage or in the bedroom, he's looking for his next thrill in extreme sports. So why does a sweet, innocent journalist get his heart pumping and capture his full attention? Is Toni the real deal or just digging up dirt on his band? Logan’s eager to rock Toni’s world and roll her in the sack, but when she starts to get too close to his heart, she takes her insider look to a place he may never be willing to go

My Review  5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Vulpine Press, for an honest review**

It's been a while since i have read anything by this author and although i have not forgotten how good her books are, i also did.

I loved everything about this book from the chemistry between the pair, to the awakening of Toni as a woman and the chance of a person that came over Logan at finding the one woman for him.

Logan was a womaniser and had no intentions of being a family man, however there is something about virginal Toni and her big heart that just captures him from the moment that he sees her.

We get more band dynamics and camaraderie, fighting and we get to see a little bit of the band called the Sinners from another book series by this author (equally as brilliant and captivating).

Loved the happy ending and really hope to see more of these characters in book two.

REVIEW - The Baby Bargain by Crystal Kaswel

The Book
Release Date: 26 June 2019
Goodreads Link

My best friend's kid sister wants me to get her pregnant--the old fashioned way.

I've looked out for Ariel since she was in pigtails. I took her trick or treating, told off the jerk who dumped her, picked her up from Prom.
When she needs my help, I'm there. Only she doesn't need a ride, a study partner, a new tattoo.
Ariel wants me to get her pregnant. The old fashioned way.
Three months of trying. Then we go back to our lives.
It's a terrible idea. I should say no. I should convince her to wait for Mr. Right.
But the geeky grad student is sure it's now or never.
And I'm sure as hell not going to let her find someone else.

The Baby Bargain is a standalone romance with a brooding alpha hero, a feisty math geek heroine, and enough heat to melt your Kindle. Come see why readers say "no one writes broken bad boys like Crystal Kaswell."

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author and Hidden Gems for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Although this book is part of the Inked Hearts series, it can totally be read as a stand alone.

I really enjoyed this book and considering what Ariel will have to go through in her future i found her to be a really strong character able to go and get what she wants i also loved the way she just spoke what she thought even if it was hard stuff to hear for the other person.

Both Ariel and Chase were perfect for each other and were a perfect balance for each other and Ariel really helped Chase see what he was missing in his life, and how it was him that was holding himself back from being happy.

I have only read one of the other books from this series, however i am seriously thinking of getting the other books to read, especially Hunters.

This is a really good series.

REVIEW - His Prize Cheetah: The second in the Pixie Emslie Exotica romance Series by Pixie Emslie

The Book
Release Date: 19 September 2018

On the steamy beaches of the tropical island of Mauritius it was passion at first sight for billionaire playboy and womaniser of note, Anton van Coller and the deliciously sexy Francesca – better known to her friends as Cheetah. Both anxious to protect their identities, the two decide simply to enjoy their island fling – and to stay away from the pressures of their own high profile lives. 

But back at her famous father’s ranch in Africa, Francesca can’t believe it when Anton turns up. He is involved in a fabulous global jewellery and art exhibition, and Cheetah is dragged into it, her exquisite face perfect to model the creations. She also has to face the fact that she was just one more of the many beautiful and famous names he had taken to his bed – but this time the golden playboy is smitten, while she is absolutely determined not to fall for his charms, or into his bed, again. 

Moving from the wilds of Africa to the glamour of London and New York, this is a story to warm the coldest heart – and leave you longing for more. 

My Review  2 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Unfortunately this book fell completely flat for me.  I really struggled to see Anton as anything other than a moody child and i really struggled to connect with him, i also struggled with the story telling although the main bones of the story is really good.  

Cheetah seemed and ok character and the way that they were written i really did not like Steven or Karina that much as they had no dimension and seemed lacklustre and even though the title suggests it is a Erotic book, it definitely is not.

Not an author for me.
