Title: The Muse
Author: Hart de Lune
This is the first in series.
It left a lot of questions open and it didn’t feel like their story really got a resolution but I guess we’ll see how that transpires in the next book.
I really liked the dynamic between Seffi and Scott and despite all the noble things he could have, should have, done he couldn’t help but be drawn to her.
I think I was expecting more of a darker, Mafia style story but again that might come out more as we go through the series. There are definitely hints in there about more going on with Landon and I’m really excited to see where that goes.
Overall, good story, hot connection, I liked it and am looking forward to seeing what comes in future instalments!
Title: The Lies that Sinners Tell
Author: Anne Malcolm
This is the first in a duet.
Despite my hatred for cliffhangers I know I could trust Anne with a duet and I wasn’t disappointed.
I struggled a bit with the POV on this one. The story is told mostly from Stella’s point of view; first person, but there are some sections third person from Jay which took a bit to get my head around.
Stella is light, easy, fluffy, a little bit of a shopaholic and with some of those shoes I can see why. But there’s an underlying fear, a darkeness, one that is only drawn into the light when she enters an arrangement with Jay.
Jay is a little bit of an enigma as we don’t see a lot from his point of view. He’s obviously involved in some dark business, something he doesn’t want Stella exposed to. But there’s a terrified, broken, little boy underneath the hard exterior.
I love her friends. I love how their thoughts and feelings change over the course of the book, that they’re not tied to their initial expectations for her.
I’m interested to see where this one is going, to see what comes in the second half of their story.
This isn’t a typical Anne Malcolm story. This isn’t a typical romance. This is something different, something else, and I’m intrigued to see how she pulls it all together!
Title: Fractured Minds
Author: Nikki J Summers
This is the third in the Rebels of Sandland series.
Oh, Finn. What a right old mess you’ve found yourself in here, mate.
I actually really liked the way this played out.
Honesty, I wasn’t feeling Finn much before this story, he seemed a little quiet, a little shy; which he is, but there’s more to it underneath.
Still waters run deep and all that.
We also haven’t seen a great deal of Effie but I liked her too. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with Liv and the final Rebels book with Zac.
There is so much more to come with this group and I enjoyed Finns story a great deal. Brandon is still my fave though haha
Title: Devils and Dust
Author: Catherine Wiltcher
This is a standalone story.
It seems to be vaguely linked to Catherine’s other series’, there’s some cross over with the characters but you certainly get all the feels without having read the other books.
I think its safe to say Rick won me over, but it wasn’t an easy feat. I had put some of the pieces together before they all fell into place but there’s nothing quite seeing how it all comes together.
Love, loss and lies. That about sums this story up. A fantastic story, beautifully woven together, and I can’t wait to delve into some more!
Title: The Mistakes you Make
Author: Tracy Lorraine
This is a Prequel to an upcoming duet.
I can sum this book up in three words.
Short. Hot. Intriguing.
I loved it. The perfect teaser resdh to fly into the first book!
Title: The Revenge You Seek
Author: Tracy Lorraine
This is the first in a duet!
I love Tracy’s writing. There’s no other way I can put it. It’s great.
The love hate relationship between Letty and Kane is hot! The relationship between Leon, Luca and Letty is hot too!
This book is one whole lot of steam and confusion and I can not wait for book two to come so that I can finally make sense of all the pieces!
Author: Sienna Grant
This is a standalone story.
Roman and Paisley were fun and sweet.
We all remember those boys at school. The ones that knew they had it going on. The confident ones with the mischievous twinkle in their eyes. That’s Roman. Both then, and now.
Unfortunately tagging along behind him is the mouthy one. The one who knows how to tear you down and make you feel about two inches tall. And sadly, some things never change.
When Paisley Kennedy swims back into his life and takes charge he has to take a minute and take stock. Not the mousey girl he remembers, she’s now quiet and confident – or so it seems.
The story turns this way and that, friends and colleagues both with them and against them as they manoeuvre the limelight and the quagmire they find themselves in.
This was a great story but I struggled with the tense changes. The characters were good, although I could live without Gavin LOL
Life is busy busy busy atm!
Within Reach, my second release and first full length novel, released a little over two weeks ago 😯
I love this story and the characters. It’s the perfect jumping point for the next story with a smidge of darkness and a dash of something more. A great bridge from the light and fluffy that was the Christmas novella; Home to the darker depths that is The Shadow.
I’m working on graphics and formatting for the next book. I’ve written books four and five and am in the process of refining both of those.
I’ve started writing both books 6 and 7 because I have no chill 🙃
I’m also collating an anthology for the Romance Readers Book Box UK and working on the summer boxes. The Spring boxes are in progress as we speak.
There is very little time for reading at the moment unfortunately. My brain is switching to look at formatting and graphics and all things pretty.
While still attempting to teach my older two boys school stuff and potty train the youngest.
Did I say things were busy?
Anyway, I just wanted to pop on and say things are really busy but there are good things coming!
Title: The Kiss
Author: M Robinson
This is the first of the Playboy Pact series.
Mila and Leo, where do I start? They were fun and flirty, she is sassy and he is a self appointed manw**re.
I love the idea for this story and it’s a nice, light, and easy read. The friendship aspect is front and centre from the beginning and this friends to lover’s romance has all the sweetness you’d expect.
I prefer my romance with a lithe more of a kick to it but this was well written and the characters were fun!
