Review: Set Me Free

Set Me Free Set Me Free by M.R. Leahy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very dark read, but a compelling one. This story revolves around a child sex slave school, where children are being taught how to please their future buyer.
This story follows little 10 year old Emmalyn whose own mother puts her there, telling her father doesn’t want her anymore. When she taken to slaves’ quarters she shares a room with a twelve child year old boy Kodah who looks after her and helps her through the nightmare that never ends.
This book follows the two until Emmalyn is sixteen and auctioned and bought by the mysterious Drifter. This book is not for the faint of heart, it deals with child abuse. It is an absolving read and it finishes on a more positive note. Book two is coming soon and I can’t wait to find out what happens and to read their HEA

Review: Set Us Free

Set Us Free Set Us Free by M.R. Leahy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

O MY GOD I have just finished book 2, and I’m blown away. When Emmalyn lost her memory after thinking Kodah was dead I was devastated. When meet every one five years later, and the girls were living in Drifter’s house in Texas. He is gradually trying to guide Emma to California to find her future and her past.
Before Emmi leaves for California she resolves to speak to her shadow that turns up once a month on 26 of every month. We know its Kodah checking on her, she knows deep down he means her no harm.
I don’t want to spoil this for you so I will say everything happens in California, and I was riveted and I read the book in one go. I can’t recommend this enough, but Bk 1 needs to be read first. This deals with sensitive subject matter, but ends with a HEA for the main couple.

Review: Dating-ish

Dating-ish Dating-ish by Penny Reid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
I must say I fell in love with the Mad AI scientist Matt, and Marie the journalist that had given on dating, especially after going on a date to meet a mature bearded man who is her perfect match, and meets someone else completely. At first Marie finds Matt irritating, but gradually he starts to grow on her.
Marie (one of our knitting crew) and Matt (previously met and adored) come together in a story that is romantic and heartfelt and smart and funny. Dating-ish is a book that will speak to and appeal to a large audience. Anyone who has ever felt the very real pressure and struggle of dating will commiserate with an exasperated Marie.
The unrealistic expectations for both men and women seeking companionship will feel a kinship with both Matt and Marie. The adventures of dating and the alternatives to them are explored in this book. Marie is looking for her right person, and you will be cheering for nerdy, adorable Matt along the way.
Knitting in the City fans will get more glimpses into the group and what has been happening since the last book in the series. Dating-ish really shows the depth and the progression of their friendships and how they have branched out to include their partners as well. Dating-ish is a real winner for me, and I can’t recommend enough.
At times I was laughing out loud, my husband was quite jealous. This is a witty and sexy book. A must read for fans of Penny Reid.

Review: Her Alien Masters

Her Alien Masters Her Alien Masters by Renee Rose
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I reviewed for Book Addict live, 3.5 stars
Mira survived the horrific crash that had inadvertently killed the innocent inhabitants of the planet Pra’kir, facing a possible death sentence along with her four other shipmates. There is no hope of ever returning to Earth, the spaceship exploded the lives of several innocent inhabitants lost, which in turn has led to a very resentful population.
Waiting in prison Mira had anticipated a possible death sentence being requested by the families of those Pra’kirian killed when the spaceship crashed and exploded. She is astounded to discover that she and the four other shipmates are to be “fostered” into society, enabling them to give back their service within their appointed placements for the term of their individual lives.
Mira is placed with the family of three orphaned girls, currently being cared for by their totally unprepared twin uncles, their mother had been killed when her ship crashed and exploded. Within this placement she is to be fostered and disciplined by either of both Jakk and Gav’n, these two enormous HUNKS never shy from their responsibility, often coming up with their own ingenious ideas. They know if they can’t make Mira to submit to the local ways, she can be taken away from them.
Mira, a trained engineer accepts that she will never return to earth, she initially thought caring for three children would be hard however she has quickly started to care for each of them a great deal. The punishments are harder to handle, however the benefits implemented by these two gorgeous hunks more than make up for it in the sex dept. It’s great addition to the series the characters were larger than life, there was plenty of love, laughter, tears and discipline along with some amazing sexiness that will hold any readers imagination I enjoyed the book, and it was a quick easy read. Even though this number 3,it can be read as a standalone

Review: The Tempest

The Tempest The Tempest by Brit Constantine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book on behalf of Book Addict live,
I really did enjoy following Lenic and Felicity’s story. I like how Felicity is a vlogger and we get into her head a bit when she sees an opportunity for a video. Felicity’s character really made me laugh at times.
But deep down you can tell both Lenic and Felicity have something dark in their history. We don’t find the reason until later in the book.
 I like how the story goes beyond the viral video of Lenic in the shower.
I was bit confused at first with the chapter titles, because the author quotes the characters. The book starts in Lenic’s perspective, in the prologue, but then the entire book follows Felicity’s perspective. I thought it was switching back and forth because the chapter headings had the characters’ name beneath the quote, but I caught on eventually.
Lenic’s perspective does come back later on in the book, and I like how he is portrayed.  I managed to overlook those details and I remained focus on knowing the story, learning more about the characters. At times I couldn’t stop my imagination going Viral especially the charity car wash event with Lenic’s friends stripped to the waist


I will say there is a lot of sex in this story, but it was used to show the growing intimacies in and out bed. All in all an enjoyable read, I loved the epilogues. It was a very intense relationship with an HEA

Review: Resurrecting Hope

Resurrecting Hope Resurrecting Hope by Jane Anthony
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict.live,

Wow! What an amazing book! I was hooked from the beginning to the end! Once I started I couldn't put it down! Resurrecting Hope is hot, sexy, and heartbreaking and will keep you on the edge of your seat!
We see Hope’s previous life through her journal entries, and begin to feel her fear.
Hank Lawless definitely did not disappoint! Hank is an alpha male that's tough and very good with his hands, he's sweet and loving and so deliciously hot!!!
Hope Moon is a sweet and kind single mom that's guarded and righty so! The pain and suffering she experienced from her mobster husband just broke my heart. The chemistry between Hank and Hope is so sexy and passionate it will leave you swooning and begging for more. This is Jane Anthony's first dark romance and in my opinion she nailed it! Jane you are amazing!!! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves an amazing read with dark subject, which Hank and Hope overcome to get a second chance and their HEA.

Review: All About the D

All About the D All About the D by Lex Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have reviewed this book for Book Addict live,
WOW what I can say about the D, I thought it was hilarious and so topical because you see interesting blogs happening all the time. I thought Josh and Evie were great together you could feel the rapport between then, as well as the sparks. They had fun together and the relationship felt right. If you enjoy a romantic comedy with a completely different slant then this is for you. I thoroughly enjoyed it. After I finished reading I had a big smile on my face.

Review: Bombshell

Bombshell Bombshell by C.D. Reiss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this for Book Addict Live,
This is an addition to the original review, I listened to the Audio edition and it was great. I thoroughly recommend.
We first met Brad and Cara at the West Side Nannies,Cara supporting her friend Blakely who was being interviewed for a new position. When “BRING THE WET ONES” the call for anyone looking after children. Cara's meeting with Nicole is when she had pooped herself out of fear of being left with strangers. Cara manages to care and clean the child. Then Brad an A list Superstar who is used to getting his own way hires Cara and Blakely to look after his little girl.
Little Nicole immediately takes a shine to Cara and so does Brad. He falls for her from the beginning, but Cara plays by the rules especially after what happened to Blakely. This book is great, the Bombshell from the title is Nicole a 5 year old that has been sent to live with her father after her mother dies. Brad is still in a state of shock not knowing anything about children.
I loved this story, the relationship between Brad, Nicole and Cara was wonderful to watch develop, I can’t recommend this book enough. Come and enjoy another winner from CD Reiss. I’ve already ordered the Audio edition on May 1st, so I can enjoy it all over again.

Review: Sonora: And The Eye of the Titans

Sonora: And The Eye of the Titans Sonora: And The Eye of the Titans by T.S. Hall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I This first book of a series, so there was a lot of world building so there is a lot to take in and a lot we still need to discover, but Sonora and the Eye of the Titans sets everything up nicely and I am already in the “I need to know what happens next” mode.
I really liked our 4 main characters Allora, Katie, Dax, and Tanner as well as the secondary ones in the form of the adults. A part of me wanted to kick Allora and Tanner’s asses in gear, I mean really but I guess that opens up the story into more interesting moments between the two.
As usual, I am not going to share too much of the plot because I want you to read the book; and where would the fun be if I made it all easy for you all.
I think the story line is really interesting and original as I tend to love any sort of twists to my favourite old myths and this baby right here fits the bill. I am going to highly recommend it and hope that the next book in the series is available soon as I am an impatient one!
I am keeping my eyes out for this series and for anything that Travis will come up with. as the series has wonderful potential and what matters is what happens next.
