Review: Power Struggle

Power Struggle Power Struggle by Paige Fieldsted
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
Power struggle is the first novel I have read by this author, and it won’t be the last. I was pulled into the story right away. I always like reading dual POV especially in these intense, and very adult situations. We meet Olivia Roberts an extraordinary defense attorney we a great record at one of prestigious Law Firms in New York. Ten years of her life was devoted to her career hoping to be made partner, leaving little time for relationships.
All’s well until one James Beck super attorney at law is recruited by Olivia’s firm with offer of a partnership. I have set the scene, but after arriving in New York early James goes out on the town and meets this fabulous women, who like only wants sex and no relationship just like him. After one of the best nights of his life he meets her Monday morning the new law firm he is started at.
Then the action and a war start. This is a very entertaining book with scorching sex scenes, a murder trial runs through the story. I can’t believe this is Paige’s 2nd book. The writing puts you right there with them. I can’t recommend this enough if enjoy reading about 2 people over the age of thirty getting it on with such scorching hot passion.

Wow what a beautiful story, I think I still have a few tears in my eyes. We first meet Jasmine and Elliott when they are sixteen, and they have such a beautiful connection. They recognise the music in their souls and the love. When Jasmine forced away, she is heartbroken leaving behind her stepfather and Elliott.
New Orleans is the first time Jasmine felt at home, but her mother drags her away to England and carries on pushing Jasmine into being a pop star, something she doesn’t want. Finally she has enough and goes home to New Orleans.
They both start to live again, and it was lovely to read. There is heartbreak, and then there is Hope and Love. I can’t recommend this enough, but get your hankies out. I can say you will have a smile on your face at the end. This story has heart and a happy ending.

Review: Villains & Vodka

Villains & Vodka Villains & Vodka by Alta Hensley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
Well Madison has been stalking Harley Crow, and has been obsessing over him, but Harley is usually on his own, and as Marlowe was never working in his area they had never connected before. The Spiked Roses exclusive Men’s Club sets up tastings, which was all different themes. When The Dark and Deadly is announced, and Harley is attending Madison can’t resist signing up.
This is not a pretty romance wrapped up with pretty words. If you read the first in the Series you may have some idea. This is a hired assassin, a paid killer, and he thinks he has a dark soul. Marlowe got her wish and went home with Harley for a weekend. This is a dark and dirty tale, and Harley couldn’t have a woman that is not afraid of him and makes him feel things. So things have to get more deadly .
So this was something I enjoyed if that’s the right word. Alta Hensley always writes well, and I am always are pulled into the story. This Series is not for the faint of heart.

I have really enjoyed reading about Violet and Alexander, or Mr Knightley. Where have I heard that name before? This is a lovely romance, and they are a great couple from the word go. Violet is employed to try and sort out his paperwork, and get his billing up to date.
This is set mostly in London, and Louise describes Lincoln Inn, and chambers so well. I had a cousin who was barrister there, and it brought back memories. If you enjoyed The Duke of Manhattan, this is Scarlett little sister. This had everything you would like in it like hot sex, a hunky man, great banter and a couple worth cheering on. They were perfect for each other, and I was hooked from the beginning. This to me was the perfect entertaining romance.

Review: Wolves and Roses

Wolves and Roses Wolves and Roses by Christina Bauer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict live,
This is Book one in a wonderful new series by Christina Bauer, and as usual she has drawn me into another series that has kept me hooked.
This is set in a world where magic appears to dying, in this first trip into the Fairy Tales of the Magicorum.
Our kick ass heroine Bryer Rose who is living the Sleeping Beauty Template. Her best friend is Elle a failing Cinderella template. They both attend Magicorum teen Therapy Group for failing to live up to their templates.
Two great female characters who are tough and can take care of themselves. We always have such strong females in Christina’s books and this one is no different. The action really kicks in when they get caught breaking into LaCharmes office and they meet the arrival committee in the form of Knox and Alec, I have only one thing to say LET THE GAMES BEGIN.
The adventures certainly begin, and I was dragged me into the story that didn’t let me out until the end. When I finished I felt totally bereft. So I went back and read Thrax, and enjoyed so more girl power. We didn’t just have girl power, Knox was pretty spectacular and I could understand Bryar's attraction. I could go on about this book, but then there would be nothing for you to find out. If you enjoy Christina’s books you’ll love this. If you haven’t read any, this is book one in a new series. So it’s good place to start. I will say you are not left on a cliffhanger, as the story arc for couple finish on a positive not.

I don’t know how Christina Bauer manages to do it, I have been hooked on the Angelbound Series, and then I discovered this series. It seems I’ve waiting ages for this book I just couldn’t see how it was going to be resolved. As always nothing is ever easy for our kickass heroine. I thought she had Rowan and the casters now, that’s too easy for Elea.
As always they have a great cast of characters that have appeared through the books in the Series. Also a visit from vindictive Victor put in his usual appearance trying to take over the worlds.
I did love Rowan’s little brother Jicho, and his magic ship. This book was a compelling read, if you have never read this series, I really recommend it, as Christina always develops such rich worlds with great characters. Even the baddies are inventive with their schemes. I was very happy with the outcome, and we ended on a happy note. As always it was feast for the brain, and gives the imagination at a FIVE Star work out.

Then he gets a new partner Jessica McBee, and he works with her for a year or two before either one will admit to other how they feel.
This was a quick and I felt quite a festive read, but there is so much packed in, with the story and the time line. This is no insta lust or love, they get to become best friends and partners first and the rest follows. There is so much more but that’s it from me, you need to read it yourself. This can be read as a standalone or a great addition to the series.

I do enjoy one of Jami Davenport’s Seattle Sports Romances, but I have to say this one was one of my favourites. Matt, Vi, and the boys was such a lovely treat.
At the beginning it was a meeting of the Odd Couple Vi the tattooed stripper, and Matt the straitlaced man who likes his life ordered and sane. The chemistry between them was unwelcome at first, but neither can resist other.
I loved Vi with the boys, and the healthy food she tries to feed them made me laugh.
This was a sweet sexy love story about two lost people who found each other and made their lives complete. I especially like imagining a lot sweaty sexy hunks playing Hockey. Matt was a great surprise to me, he always seemed boring on the surface, but he was a real surprise. If you enjoy a good sports romance then this the one for you.

This is book two in The Walker Security Series, and it never fails or I’m very fickle because I've been in love with Kyle from Deep Under. Now I’m in quandary because Asher really does for me. There is nothing sexier than one of Lisa Renee Jones Heroes they always feel like the real deal.
Sorry I was focusing on Asher, I can’t help it. On another note I always have a lot of respect for her heroines, and Sierra did not disappoint. The more you get to know about her the more kickass Sierra becomes.
When these two get together under such extreme circumstances you can feel the attraction sparking between them. All this with a life and death situation that Lisa weaves with her usual expertise. I was glued to my kindle, and ended up reading through the night. To me this is a five star feast in every respect.
Even though this is about Asher and Walker Security they can be read as a standalone, each couple get their HEA, but we meet all the bunch through each story. Anyway this is a great series so give one a try.

Review: The Infinity Gene

The Infinity Gene The Infinity Gene by Sue Wyshynski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
The Infinity Gene is the sequel to The Butterfly Code from the Girl on Fire series by Sue Wyshynski. It’s a long awaited addition to the series, with the first released in 2015. It only took me a minute to get back into the series, to find myself in the trans-humanistic world again, but once I jumped in I was hooked. Aeris is a compelling character, full of strength, naivety, love, and determination.
During the first book she was thrust into a new world, one that she thought would give her answers about her mother, but instead left her with more questions. In book two we see even more so how she has embraced this new version of the world she has found and how there’s a place for her in it, even if it wasn’t truly meant to be. Hunter is back, of course, and as lovely as ever. We don’t get enough of him, though we do see the lengths he is willing to go for Aeris. We also revisit with several of the other genetically modified humans, as well as meet the others that we have only known of by title, The Winterborn Survivors.
Wow I love these kind of books, as we all know it’s only a matter of time before this things happen, or have they already? The first book the Butterfly Effect pulled me into this series. The Infinity Gene has kept me there. I don’t know what to say, I don’t want give anything away. I will say this carried straight after book one finished. Aeris is lured to an interview, about writing music for movie and television. Once there she is attacked, while there she see a young girl tied to a chair and rescues her, but she finally gets away only to find the Tribunal is coming, and because of her Hunter’s life is in danger. Aeris she has to leave him to save him.
As we all know nothing is that easy, but I ‘m waiting to read book three which is now on Kindle unlimited. This one of those that keep you hooked, and this definitely a five star read for me, and I can’t wait for more.

It is always good to step inside the wider Stark world. In this standalone we meet Noah, who has survived a terrible personal tragedy losing his wife and daughter to kidnappers some years previously.

Noah carries guilt for how he left Kiki the first time, and guilt from the kidnapping and death of his wife and daughter Diana. The fact that is a second chance romance I think it mad all the emotional turmoil more understandable.
I loved this book it captivated me, and with the intense emotions Kiki and Noah felt I couldn’t put it down. I kept my fingers crossed for both of these damaged people.

They have to work together, and realise that they still have great chemistry, and then they fall in love with their new selves. Knox and Emma Jane were so good together. Beckett was as cute as matchmaker to Knox and Emma Jane. I can’t wait for Becker to get his own story.

Sully is a powerfully witch that works for the IBI (Imperial Bureau of investigation) for the British Empire. It is her job to deal with the worst paranormal attacks in the American colonies. When a string of mass murders continues to happen, it is up to Sully find and stop the killer. But soon Sully realizes she may be dealing with someone with magic never seen before. Can Sully crack the case before it is too late?
I devoured this book, it was full of so many different paranormals which I loved. Witches, vamps, skin walkers, demons, it was a great mix and they fit into this world in ways you would not expect. For one, vampires are considered very lowly. They are banished, killed, hunted and at best ignored, pending what part of the world you are in. Humans know they are living with things that go bump in the night but the witches and other magic users keep them in line. I really got immersed in this world and thought it was well done. I don’t remember ever quite reading a book like this before, and considering all the paranormal books I have read, I’m pretty impressed.
Sully has to be the biggest badass witch I have ever read about. I just loved her character. She is awesomely powerful but she is not invincible. I liked that even with all her power, her life was still on the line, it made the story more exciting. I am not going to give anything more away, but I would love a sequel please Mr Penman. This has so many different elements in this story, that I think will appeal to a lot of readers.

Review: Most Eligible Bastard

Most Eligible Bastard Most Eligible Bastard by Annika Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
This is a fun story about Vicky The dog whisperer and Henry the Eligible bachelor and CEO of Corke Industries.
Poor Vicky helps to look after a dog called Smuckers for an old lady that is dying, and leaves in her will 51% of the voting rights and a place on the board to her dog naming Vicky as Smuckers Guardian.
This courses eruptions at the reading of the will, and let the dirty games begin. Against all the odds after spending time together Henry and Vicky fall each other.
There many twists and turns and secrets exposed, as the path to true love is paved with obstacles. This an enjoyable and at times funny and  a sad read. Henry and Vicky were made for each other.

So at the beginning Zane was trying to convince himself that he is ready to be the unmarried uncle.

Boom and clatter seem to be Zane and Gambler’s signature entrance. I really enjoyed this book, Harper and Zane were perfect together. The other characters had lots going on. This had me chuckling at times, with meant lots of funny looks coming my way.
There is a lot happening around the main couple, so a great mix of character interaction. Harper and Zane were great together making this an entertaining read.

Review: Saving It

Saving It Saving It by Monica Murphy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of http://bookaddict.live,
Whenever I read a Monica Murphy YA story, I always find myself back in my 18 yrs. old mind.
I loved both characters Joshua and Eden, who have been best friends for years, all that changes when Josh ask her to find a girl to lose his virginity too. It was a good switch being a boy needing help and still being a virgin.
All the talk of sex made them look each other differently. I found them so cute together, it seems like they were the only ones who didn’t realise what was happening between them. I loved the other best friends Molly and Abraham they were so funny.
Monica’s knack is that it all seems so realistic, not all the made up with all the stars and music fading.
I would happy letting my teenage daughter read this and enjoy as much as I did.

Review: My American Nightmare - Women in Horror Anthology

My American Nightmare - Women in Horror Anthology My American Nightmare - Women in Horror Anthology by Azzurra Nox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
For the purpose of this review I am reviewing the book in one go. There are multiples of small different stories, which cover most of the legends and genre. The one thing that made easy reading was all the stories are bite size chunks. The different authors appear to get right into our physic, and play on all the legends and fears we keep to ourselves.
The warning I will give is if you are looking for happy endings you don’t get many, in a few you may just survive. This is geared more towards young adults as they are the stars of the stories. I have to say I enjoyed reading this book even if it gave me the creeps at various times and venues

Review: Wolves and Roses

Wolves and Roses Wolves and Roses by Christina Bauer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict live,
This is Book one in a wonderful new series by Christina Bauer, and as usual she has drawn me into another series that has kept me hooked.
This is set in a world where magic appears to dying, in this first trip into the Fairy Tales of the Magicorum.
Our kick ass heroine Bryer Rose who is living the Sleeping Beauty Template. Her best friend is Elle a failing Cinderella template. They both attend Magicorum teen Therapy Group for failing to live up to their templates.
Two great female characters who are tough and can take care of themselves. We always have such strong females in Christina’s books and this one is no different. The action really kicks in when they get caught breaking into LaCharmes office and they meet the arrival committee in the form of Knox and Alec, I have only one thing to say LET THE GAMES BEGIN.
The adventures certainly begin, and I was dragged me into the story that didn’t let me out until the end. When I finished I felt totally bereft. So I went back and read Thrax, and enjoyed so more girl power. We didn’t just have girl power, Knox was pretty spectacular and I could understand Bryar's attraction. I could go on about this book, but then there would be nothing for you to find out. If you enjoy Christina’s books you’ll love this. If you haven’t read any, this is book one in a new series. So it’s good place to start. I will say you are not left on a cliffhanger, as the story arc for couple finish on a positive not.

Review: The Other Brother

The Other Brother The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict live,
We meet another couple in Meghan’s series of standalones, but sometimes they are characters we have met in previous books. This is the story of Smalls, friend and work partner to Tucker and Racer from previous books. Each of these men have had a hard life so it is gratifying to see each of the guys get their hea. So I was really pleased that it was Aaron’s turn.
As someone new moves in next door, Aaron can’t believe that it’s his ex-girlfriend Amelia, the girl he loved more than his self.
Amelia has moved back, because her father’s Alzheimer’s has gotten worse and she wants to be near him. Even though she has left Trey her boyfriend behind. He is hoping to follow as soon as he can.
I loved this couple together, this is a very emotional book. My god you could feel the chemistry between them. Unfortunately there was a lot of hurt and misunderstandings to get through before they reach HEA. I can’t recommend this book enough it’s a beautiful story and I loved every minute of it, and always good to see my boys happy.

Review: Darkest Temptation

Darkest Temptation Darkest Temptation by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict live,
In this series of standalones from The Dark Ones Saga, we meet Mason King of The Wolves, and Serenity a vampire. I really enjoyed this book I was pulled into the action straight away and had to read this in one go. At one time I only read paranormal romance, but I’ve given it a break for a few years except for select authors.
So I was really pleased to see this series from Rachel because I enjoy her contemporaries. I am so glad I decided to read this series. As it so easy to read everything flows effortlessly that it becomes a joy to read.
Without giving anything away we have two broken people who begin to heal through their bond of love. It was an enthralling journey Serenity and Mason go on to become who they are meant to be.
I can’t recommend this enough, if you love paranormal you’ll love this. If you enjoy romance give it a go.

Review: Lost Before You

Lost Before You Lost Before You by Brooke O'Brien
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict.live,
This is Book 2 in the series and is the story of Mason and Brea. They have been best friends at college for a couple of years, which has caused problems of jealousy with her boyfriend Kaleb.
What happens when best friends fall in love, it becomes a beautiful love story. Alas we know the path to true love never runs smooth.
This is book two in the Heart’s Compass series, the stories are interconnected. Mason is the younger brother of Callan from book one. They each can be read as standalone
I loved Mason and Brea they were adorable together. This is an enjoyable read, with best friends to lover’s troupe, and all angst that go with it. I think it would be best you read it yourself to find out what happens

Review: #1 Player

#1 Player #1 Player by T. Gephart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
This is a really enjoyable read, and I thought Ryan and Lila were cute together. Even though we met the pair in #1 Crush and the couple Eric and Tia from #1 Crush do appear in this book, but it can read as a standalone.
We they first met was instant attraction both deciding to enjoy a sexual relationship while Lila stays in LA for work and while living with Tia and Eric.
This is very hot sexy read, with the chemistry between the two off the charts. They grew close very quickly, and you could feel the love blossom between them.
If you enjoy a great romance where you can see love growing between the couple. I fell for Ryan myself so was very jealous of all the attention Lila received from him.
This is a funny enjoyable read from T. Gephart.

Review: A Little Too Late

A Little Too Late A Little Too Late by Staci Hart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict. live,
What a delightful book this is, I really enjoyed reading about Hannah and Charlie. Charlie feels unhappy and lost since he has separated from his wife, after she cheated on him with his best friend.
All that changes when he hires Hannah to be his Au pair to look after the children.
He is mesmerised by her personality and the way she takes care of his children. Before long they are friends, and she starts bringing light back to his life after years of darkness. Eventually they fall in love, but life and love can never be that easy.
This is sweet and delightful contemporary romance, Hannah and Charlie were perfect together. Hannah comes from Holland, and the description of her baking had me drooling.
This is straight forward romance that flowed from the pages making very easy to read in one sitting. This is a feel good read, and I finished with smile on my face. Sometimes that is just what need when you have reading a lot of darker books.

Review: Web Of Lies

Web Of Lies Web Of Lies by J.G. Sumner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
“Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.”
I don’t think I can put it any  better than Sir Walter Scott as this saying was popping about in my head while reading this book.
Web of Lies is a book where nothing is how it seems. At first we have a happily married couple with three children. Until a conspiracy is planned against the husband who naively trusts his wife and her brother as they conspire against him.
This is a great read I really enjoyed it as the machinations going on. I really felt sorry for Trent, as he is manipulated by all around him. This being the first book of a trilogy we think we know who is behind all the problems. Towards the end everyone seems to put all the surprises behind then and  carry on as normal.
We end on a cliffhanger, which I knew would happen, but I was enjoying the book so much I didn’t want it to end. I now have to wait for book two Cage of Deceit.

Review: Dirty Rich One Night Stand: a sexy standalone novel

Dirty Rich One Night Stand: a sexy standalone novel Dirty Rich One Night Stand: a sexy standalone novel by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a pleasure it was to read this book.

When we meet Reese he is a hot shot Defense Attorney who is defending a man accused of Murder and Cat is reporting the case from the courtroom.
When Cat first meets Reese in the Coffee shop, and he pushes in front of her, Cat tells him off and calls him an Arrogant Asshole to his face. The fact that he was hot, and she recognised him from the courtroom did not deter her. From that point onwards Reece begins to notice her.
The only thing Cat wants from him for is A One and Done or a One Night Stand. As always there more going on than a straightforward love story. What starts out as just sex, becomes love and mutual respect for each other?
What I love about the female leads in Lisa’s books is that they are intelligent and able to stand on their own feet. Reese is not the Asshole we think he is at the beginning, and they fall hard for each other. They also have a murder to solve. All the ingredients for great story we have come to expect from Lisa Renee Jones. I happily give this enjoyable read with Murder, love, and hot sex all the ingredients mixed by a master chief adds up to 5 stars

WOW my hearts still pounding after reading this Supernatural horror feast. The heroine of the tale is Piper, who had a terrible beginning in life with a violent and abusing father. When her father disappears she goes to live with her grandfather. Piper is a reporter who lives in New York Her life seems fine until she receives a call informing her that her grandfather’s dead and she has to head back to Alabama.
I am not going to spoil this story for you, if you enjoy a good dose of fear and something suited to read at Halloween, or just enjoyed a burst of fear and enjoy something of the supernatural. Most of story takes place in a small town called Hell.
Then this is the book for you. This is the first time I’ve read this author, and it certainly won’t be the last. I like a good dose of fear at times and this fits the bill. I am so happy to have discovered this gem. I want say big thank to Xpresso for giving this opportunity.
