Author: Samantha Jacobey

Genre: Young adult, dystopian, romance

Stars: 4Β πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

The Irrevocable Series is a pretty clean YA dystopian series (end of the world…. not zombie apocalypse). I enjoyed this series very much. I am definitely all for end of the world books. I think my favorite part of this series was Bailey. The loss of the most important people in her life changed her from pleasant to an angry at the world, bitter self centered girl. Through each of the books I could see and feel her growth as a person in trying to deal with everything. Book one sets up the series and book two and three are where all the good stuff happens (for me). These books are action packed and full of twists and turns. The story is well written and the main characters are relatable and real. There were a few too many side characters for me to keep straight in my head. All in all, this is a great series and I would recommend this to everyone!

Jennifer’s review of Shattered by JL Drake

Title: Shattered

Author: JL Drake

Genre: romance, dark romance

Stars: 5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

JL Drake is an absolutely awesome story teller.While I did love Broken, this book just had something a bit extra to it. I laughed a little, cried, shouted at the characters living in my kindle (cause yeah they can hear me lol) and just fell more in love with this story the farther along I got into it. This book is full of twists and turns and will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. One of my favorite books you have written so far!

Jennifer’s review of Broken by JL Drake

Title: Broken

Author: JL Drake
Genre: romance, dark romance
Stars: 4 πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›
Broken was a pretty good and pretty quick read for me. The story is very well written and easy to follow. I enjoyed these characters very much. The beginning of the story was fantastic. I really loved that it was going to be a darker read. After Samantha’s rescue, the book, for me lightened up quite a bit more than I was hoping. I was hoping to put off the romance a little bit more towards the end of the story. All in all, the book was very good, characters are enjoyable and the ENDING! (Love that ending! ) If you like just putting your toes in the water of dark romance or are new to it this is a great place to start (in my opinion). For all dark romance lovers this book is an easy read and very good.

Jennifer’s review of Run by Jennifer Vester

Title: Run (Lakefield Book 1)

Author: Jennifer Vester

Genre: romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense
Stars: 5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›
I really enjoyed this book. Liv was finally living her life with her best friend Julia after a horrible and traumatic college relationship. She makes a stop to eat dinner and sees Aiden sitting in a business meeting at the table across from her. The attraction is instant for both. Of course Liv decides to run from it. Aiden chases her down to return her forgotten phone. And so the hilarious and suspenseful story starts. Β Liv and Aiden were perfect. They were absolutely perfect for each other. Aiden is take charge and in control of every aspect of his life. Liv is a book worm, foul mothed, crazy quirky lady. She was always pushing his limits and the banter back and forth is hilarious. I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. The very real danger Liv was in from her stalker had me turning pages to see what would happen next. The story was very well written and the side characters were amazing and so funny at time. I finished this story very quickly. I couldn’t put it down Β (even while at work)! Definitely 5 stars and I can’t wait to start on Julia’s book!

Genre: dark, suspense, romance, thriller, crime drama

Stars: 5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

Only The Pretty Ones is the first book in the Angry Girl Crime Stories series. It can be read as a standalone or part of the series. This is my first book by Karen M Bryson. I absolutely enjoyed every second of reading this book! It’s full of drama, romance, and is dark and suspenseful. It took me on a roller coaster ride of twists and turns. The story is very well written and the characters are relatable and real. I was sucked in from the beginning and the story wouldn’t let me go! I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series!

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!
