I enjoyed this book. It flowed from the 1st to this book extremely well. I love the character building of this book. We get to see so much more and so much deeper into these characters. So many secrets being kept adds to the drama a bit. It’s a good read and makes me so happy I picked up this series!

Jennifer’s review of What The Heart Wants by Kelli McCracken

Genre: romance, paranormal romance

Stars: 3.5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

I’m giving this book 3.5 stars. In the end I did enjoy this book. The book and the characters were well written. I didn’t really feel a connection with the characters in this book.(plus the sisters absolutely irritated me) I also thought the drama was a bit forced feeling. This book started so slow it took me a while to get into it. Once I got into the book it was pretty good. I loved the little bit of paranormal thrown in. It does end in a cliffhanger but since there are 5 books it’s no big deal. I’m hoping with book 2 I get a better connection with Heaven and Dylan.

Jennifer’s review of Midnight Moss by Carissa Ann Lynch

Title: Midnight Moss

Author: Carissa Ann Lynch

Genre: paranormal, young adult, fantasy

Stars: 5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

This book was pretty different from what I am used to reading. I really love the author’s writing style and the flow of the book. This was a very easy book for me to get into. I love how independent Dorothea is for her age. I enjoyed seeing how responsible she is at only 18. She is a strong character with great wit and a take charge attitude. The paranormal throughout this story was different and very interesting. The strange creatures and the story behind why they are terrorizing this small town caught and held my attention. I absolutely love this story! I recommend this book if you like a bit of YA, paranormal, fantasy and creepy.

Jennifer’s review of From the Shadows by LJ Stock

Title: From The Shadows

Author: LJ Stock

Genre: paranormal romance, fantasy

Stars: 5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

I love this book, these characters and this world! I don’t think I even have the right words to express my feelings. I was so excited to have an advanced copy of this book. It definitely didn’t let me down! The first couple of chapters were catching up on Cass’s new life as a princess and a refresher for what happened in book one. By chapter three I was thrown in the action and drama of an ambush and Cass’s capture and captivity by bad guys. This story flowed beautifully and was extremely well written. I could picture the characters and scenes as if I was there. I could feel the emotions of the characters in every word written. LJ Stock is an amazing author with an absolute gift for painting a scene and drawing my feelings to the surface. I adore Cass and Damon, and Mortisali so so much! I do hope there is a book three so I can walk in Mortisali again!

Jennifer’s review of Parallel by L.J. Stock

Title: Parallel book 1 of the Mortisalian Saga

Author: L.J. Stock

Genre : paranormal romance, Β fantasy

Stars: 5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

Parallel is the first book I have read by this author as well as the first book in the Mortisalian Saga. Cass was put into a mental facility by her parents at the age of 17. The book begins 7 years later with her still in the same hospital. She hears and see things, mostly war, through water. Β A nurse is dragging her through the hospital to the shower. What follows is a fantastical story filled with tales of the gods, mythical beings, other realms, battles and so much more. The story is extremely well written and flows beautifully. I loved the characters so much. I love how important each and every character is. None of them were tossed aside and forgotten. The importance may be that someone is a friend or a helper, and they may only be in bits of the book but the author made them unforgettable. There is a love story here but the main focus is the actual story itself. I think Saga is definitely a wonderful word to use for this series. Parallel is an amazing read that pulled at my heart, had me laughing, and at times cursing the stubborn characters. This is a beautiful read full of hope. I am so excited to read book two!

I’ve been reading these books since the first in the series, and they keep getting better. I love how the authors intertwine paranormal with the erotic scenes.

Ashley’s Review of Crescent Vendetta by Desiree L. Scott

Ashley’s 4-πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ› Review
Book: Crescent Vendetta
Author: Desiree L Scott
Series: Vendetta Series #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 30, 2016
Stars: 4

This was the first book I’ve read by Ms. Scott and I can’t wait for more. Vanessa and Travis were well developed characters. She is an outcast and he the alpha of a pack. They couldn’t be more different but what they both have in common is they are kidnapped and made to fight in an underground wolf fighting ring.

Vanessa was shunned by her brother’s pack and then taken in by The Crescent Pack pack. Travis is slowly getting Vanessa to trust in him. Will they be safe from the kidnappers trying to reacquire them, especially Vanessa?

I can’t wait for the second book in this series. I’m really looking forward to the continuation.

Book: Entwined Souls
Author: Michele Gantz
Series: The Soulmates Series #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 6, 2016
Stars: 4

Ms. Gantz has a new fan. I’m all about paranormal but add a paranormal love triangle and I’m in!!! Amia, Gage and Hunter are exceptional characters that resonate with me especially Amia.

Two brothers couldn’t be more different… Gage flaunts the law and Hunter is just the opposite. Amia meets Gage first and there are sparks so she agrees to go on a date with him. That’s when everything spirals out of control, he really has a problem with her being an author. Hunter tried to warn her about Gage. Hunter meets Amia on the first day of her creative writing class. They have an instant attraction. Amia and Hunter spend all their time together, which makes Gage really, really unhappy. Gage lets a secret slip about him and Hunter that Amia is weary about.

Gage only wants Amia for one reason- her power. Hunter wants Amia because he’s her true soulmate. A power struggle ensues between all the factions. Who will come out on top?

Ms. Gantz is a promising new author. I will be reading more of her books!!!

Ashley’s Review o The Grizzly’s Tale by Nara Malone

Ashley’s 4-πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ› Review
Book: The Grizzly’s Tale
Author: Nara Malone
Series: A Pantherian Story #3
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy
Release Date: January 13, 2017
Stars: 4

I’m new to reading Ms. Malone’s work but it was an over all pleasant story. It was slow going for me for the first one or two chapters but then it took off. Katy plays in a virtual reality world, Quarterz, against Oso, Kodie and Grizz. She is the prey to their hunters. When they decide to meet in real life Katy made an offer she cannot refuse- actually be in the hunter instead of the prey. There is one slight catch, the 3 men are also bears. Will Katy be able to play and not fall in love?

I recommend this book for anyone who loves sci-fi/paranormal romance.
