Review: From Flame and Ash by Carrie Ann Ryan

From Flame and Ash

Carrie Ann Ryan

Elements of Five Series, Book 2

ebook
Expected publication: November 19th 2019

NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues Lyric’s epic journey in this spellbinding sequel to From Breath and Ruin.

Lyric lost her past, her friends, and even her connections to both worlds when she found out about the Maison realm and her calling. But now she must put that aside and travel back to the Maison realm to continue her training as the Spirit Priestess. Only her journey isn’t to Rhodes and those she fought alongside before. This time, Easton and the other Obscurité warriors will stand by her side as she tries to unlock her final three elements.

However, just as she starts to learn more about what she’s been prophesied to do, a Seer’s wish and the calling of the Lumière kingdom calls her forth, thrusting Lyric into another journey where she must trust those on both sides of the age-old war to survive…and keep those she loves safe.

 

 

 

 

 4 Stars

Carrie Ann Ryan gives readers a compelling and suspenseful read with the second installment of the Elements of Five Series, From Flame and Ash.

Lyric has lost all she’s known while coming into the new person she’s become. This journey takes her Obscurite Kingdom and into an age old battle of light and dark. Lyric makes stunning leaps coming into her power and learning to find her place. Lyric truly opens her mind to the reader allowing them to see all the struggles she deals with. Lyric’s quest to unlock her elements is captivating and magical. Lyric proves her strength time and time again as her world gets tipped upside down on more than one occasion.

Carrie Ann Ryan has something truly special going on with From Flame and Ash. Lyric is an amazing character. She goes with the flow, even as the flow has her life in and out of danger. The amount of growth we’ve seen from her in just two books is part of what kept me flying through the pages. The world building Ms. Ryan has put into the Elements of Five Series is outstanding. From Flame and Ash get very high praise in my book. I should note that YA/NA is not my normal cup of tea when it comes to reading but Ms. Ryan caught me with Lyric’s adventurous saga.

 

Review: Blood Night by Heather Graham

Blood Night

Heather Graham

Krewe Of Hunters Series

1001 Dark Nights

Kindle Edition, 120 pages
Published October 22nd 2019

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Heather Graham comes a new story in her Krewe of Hunters series…

Any member of the Krewe of Hunters is accustomed to the strange. And to conversing now and then with the dead.

For Andre Rousseau and Cheyenne Donegal, an encounter with the deceased in a cemetery is certainly nothing new.

But this year, Halloween is taking them across the pond—unofficially.

Their experiences in life haven’t prepared them for what’s to come.

Cheyenne’s distant cousin and dear friend Emily Donegal has called from London. Murder has come to her neighborhood, with bodies just outside Highgate Cemetery, drained of blood.

The last victim was found at Emily’s doorstep, and evidence seems to be arising not just against her fiancé, Eric, but against Emily, too. But Emily isn’t just afraid of the law—many in the great city are beginning to believe that the historic Vampire of Highgate is making himself known, aided and abetted by adherents. Some are even angry and frightened enough to believe they should take matters into their own hands.

Andre and Cheyenne know they’re in for serious trouble when they arrive, and they soon come to realize that the trouble might be deadly not just for Emily and Eric, but for themselves as well.

There’s help to be found in the beautiful and historic old cemetery.

And as All Hallows Eve looms, they’ll be in a race against time, seeking the truth before the infamous vampire has a chance to strike again.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Heather Graham takes readers on a trip to London with tales of Vampires, a family member on the borderline of peril and a little murder mystery. Andre Rousseau and Cheyenne Donegal, members of the Krewe Hunters, embark to England on a paranormal excursion that has them going full force through Highgate cemetery. Blood Night is a quick novella has the intricacies and complexities that you would find in a full length novel. Fully develop characters, an intricate plot line and the perfect amount of suspense to keep you flipping those pages as fast as you can. Although Blood Night Falls pretty far into the series, Ms. Graham writes her story so intricately that even a newbie to her series would be able to read this book without missing a beat.

 

One of the things I have come to love most about the 1001 Dark Nights novellas is the introduction to authors I may have never discovered. That is just the case with Heather Graham and her Krewe of Hunters Series.

 

 

Review: Breathless With Her by Carrie Ann Ryan

 Breathless With Her

Carrie Ann Ryan

Less Than Series, Book 1

Paperback

Published October 22nd 2019

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a sexy new contemporary series.

Devin Carr likes his life. He likes his job, his family, the outlook for his future. Then he meets her. Erin. As soon as he sees her, drunk and wearing a sequined dress as her world crashes down around her and she fights to put on a brave face, he knows what he’s been missing. Her.

When Erin Taborn finds her high school sweetheart and husband banging the former head cheerleader of their graduating class at their high school reunion, she tells herself she’ll be fine. She just needs to figure out what fine means. There’s only one problem. Devin. She didn’t plan on him. And for someone who thinks they have all their plans in place, that’s a problem.

One she’ll have to find an answer to if this whole friends-with-benefits thing is going to work.

If not, she’ll fail just like with everything else.

 

 

 

 

 4 Stars

Erin thought her life was pretty good. She was married to her high school sweetheart and had the business of her dreams. Until she walks in on her now ex husband with another woman. Talk about the world she knew falling a part in a blink of an eye. Picking up the pieces has left Erin unsettled and insecure but she tries to get on with her new life. When a friend helps Erin through this trying time she realizes that love is so much more than she could have ever known.

Devin is now my new favorite male lead character that Ms. Ryan has written. He’s laid-back and charming. Devon kind of has this go with the flow attitude that keeps him upbeat and light. He’s a dedicated and loyal sibling and friend. He’s the kind of person that sees be on the surface of other people and will go the extra mile for a person he cares for. This sexy postman is one of those good guys that every girl could go crazy for.

Carrie Ann Ryan starts off her new Less Than Series, Breathless With Her, a friends with benefits romance with an emotional bang. Erin and Devin complement each other so well. There may have been sparks of chemistry between the two when she sat down at the bar but the sheer amount of respect that Devin displays is swoon worthy in itself. They developed a friendship that did truly turn to something more. When they finally gave into the chemistry, no promises were given. But then again you can’t make your heart feel something or not for that matter. Erin and Devin both stumble over their own feet before they get it right but that stumbling is the story that melted my heart.

 

 

ARC Review: Reaper by Larissa Ione

Reaper

Larissa Ione

Demonica Underworld Series, Book 9

Kindle Edition, 325 pages
Published October 15th 2019 by Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated

 

 

 

THE DEMONICA SERIES RETURNS…

He is the Keeper of Souls. Judge, jury, and executioner. He is death personified.

He is the Grim Reaper.

A fallen angel who commands the respect of both Heaven and Hell, Azagoth has presided over his own underworld realm for thousands of years. As the overlord of evil souls, he maintains balance crucial to the existence of life on Earth and beyond. But as all the realms gear up for the prophesied End of Days, the ties that bind him to Sheoul-gra have begun to chafe.

Now, with his beloved mate and unborn child the target of an ancient enemy, Azagoth will stop at nothing to save them, even if it means breaking blood oaths and shattering age-old alliances.

Even if it means destroying himself and setting the world on fire…

 

 

 

 

 

4.5 Stars

 

Larissa Ione has readers on the edge of their seat, turning pages with bated breath just to see the outcome.  Reaper could easily be compared to a shot of adrenaline. Epic and emotional.

Azagoth and Lilith’s story continues with a fast and epic story that underworld didn’t even see coming. Reaper is not a book you can just pick up and completely enjoy the story. Reaper is a true treat for the readers of the Demonica series. Being the 20th book in the series we are reunited with many characters of both good and evil that we have gotten to know in this vast world. The focus couple of a story maybe Azagoth and Lilith but we hear many more voices telling this tale. Ms. Ione takes us on a breakneck tail of love, heartbreak, betrayal and devotion while balancing good and evil. Reaper’s  an epic story that produced many epic emotions from this particular reader. I truly think there’s nothing I can say that’s going to give this book to justice that I believe it deserves. Azagoth and Liliana‘s story is a work of art. I started reading the Demonica series 10 years ago and Ms. Ione has never disappointed me.

 

Review: Room 143 by Laramie Briscoe

Room 143

Laramie Briscoe

Published October 6, 2019

Around my neck lays a wedding ring.

In my right hand I hold a hotel room key.

Which one do I pick?

The marriage? The key?

Everything is not as it seems in room one-forty-three

4.5 Stars

I love it when Laramie Briscoe decides to do a stand alone book. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a long time fan and truly enjoy the worlds she had created. Hello, how can you not love Tyler. When Ms. Briscoe delights her readers with a stand alone read we get something a bit more emotional and deep. Room 143 hits the reader hard and fast with everything and possibly the kitchen sink too.

Nash is hottie who’s darn good with his hands and stuck in the cycles of grief. Caroline is starting over in a small town just trying to have a peaceful life. When one’s brothers push and another agree to do a favor for their best friend, it’s set the wheels in motion for something deeper and more life changing than anyone saw coming. Room 143 is an end and a beginning. It’s a change and turning point in two people’s lives. One night changes everything. When the darkness of the night fades and reality steps back in, the chemistry grows with the days they are together. Learning to navigate the ghost of the past and the people of the present has given the realization that love is different and you can love another without losing the love of one you had before.

Room 143 blew all of my expectations out of the water. I expected an emotional read but what I got was some so much more. Caroline is passionate and patient. Her confidence and compassion make her a truly unique character. She was one of those people that could truly give all of herself without losing any of her self. She is genuine in all that she does. Nash was so tangled in his grief his life was just motions. He was complex and seeing him go from the worst moments of his life to something more was one of the highlights of the read for me. Room 143 is a whirlwind of emotions, from the lowest of lows to the highest of highs. From mourning love to rediscovering love. Nash and Caroline are equine in their coupling and the passion they discover through one another is beyond pure. Room 143 is so worth using the key and opening the door.

Mama always warned her that her sense of adventure would only lead to trouble. Tall. Dark. Delicious. Trouble.

 

About the author: 

USA Today Bestselling author Casey Hagen pens her snarky, passionate stories from the salty air of Kennebunk, Maine. She’s a born and raised Vermont native, a New England girl to the core, with Ben & Jerry’s in her heart and real Vermont maple syrup pumping through her veins.

She’s the proud mother of three girls and a new, first-time grandma with an insatiable addiction to Fall Out Boy, and a new, rather concerning obsession with tattoos and piercings. Can you say “cool grandma?”

The inked and pierced grandma spends her time tucked away in her office, coated in cat hair, alternating between tearing her hair out trying to find the perfect words and being one step ahead of her three scheming fur babies she is positive are plotting her demise with every swirl around her ankles at the top of her office stairs.

She loves writing stories about real people, with complicated histories, relatable everyday problems, and giving them the hard-won happily-ever-afters they deserve.

And she thanks every last one of you who picks up one of her stories.

Casey is done talking about herself in the third person.

About the author:

After more than ten years in the corporate world of tech recruiting and HR management, she decided to stay home and raise children. But with so many romantic stories and characters floating around in her head, when the kids napped, she was compelled to put those words on a page and pursue this crazy dream of becoming published.

When a chance encounter warms the heart and lights the way home.

 

About the author: 

Stacey Wilk wrote her first novel in middle school to quiet the characters in her head. It was that or let them out to eat the cannolisand she wasn’t sharing her grandfather’s Italian pastries. 

Many years later her life took an adventurous turn when she gave birth to two different kinds of characters. She often sits in awe of their abilities to make objects fly, it snow on command, and remain dirty after contact with water. She does share the cannolis with them for fear of losing her fingers. 

Because of the extraordinary characters now in her home instead of in her head, including a king who surfaces after dark and for coffee, she writes novels about family: those that we are born to and those that we pick up along the way. You can find her message in her middle-grade fantasy novels as well as her women’s fiction novels. Family are those that love you when you need them.

When she’s not creating stories in make-believe places, she can be found hanging with the cast members of her house, or teaching others how to make make-believe worlds of their own.

Cover Reveal: HOT UNDER THE COLLAR by Roxanne St. Claire

New York Times bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire is kicking off a brand new series and we couldn’t be more excited about it! Check out the cover for HOT UNDER THE COLLAR and be on the lookout for it soon!

 

About HOT UNDER THE COLLAR

Firefighter Braden Mahoney is devastated when his beloved Weimaraner, Jelly Bean, fails the canine arson investigator test. Faced with the challenge of raising the money for advanced training, it’s Braden’s sweet grandmother and her best friend who suggest he use the services of the new event planner in town. Not that he needs a push in Cassie Santorini’s direction. Ever since she arrived, Braden has had his eye on the sassy Greek goddess…and can’t stop thinking about getting the rest of him on her, too.

Cassie has spent years putting family first, even moving to Bitter Bark when her mother falls in love with the local veterinarian. Having a huge new extended “family” is fun, especially when one smokeshow of a firefighter attends the gatherings, but Cassie has no plans to remain in this small town. She’s ready to pursue her big city dreams. But when Braden asks for an assist for his precious pup, Cassie agrees to help him set up a town-wide scavenger hunt. It isn’t exactly a hardship to be around those blue eyes and brawny shoulders, especially since they both agree everything – even the undeniable sparks that crackle between them – is temporary.

But when temporary gets complicated by feelings that might lead to forever, Braden and Cassie start to question the direction they’re headed. Should they follow their dreams…or their hearts? It’ll take a dog with a bad nose and a sweet soul, two particularly meddlesome grandmas, and some help from the clan that loves them to make sure Cassie and Braden follow the clues and find their way to each other’s arms.

Just like The Dogfather, the covers of The Dogmothers were all photographed at Alaqua Animal Refuge in Florida using rescue dogs and local heroes, and a portion of the first month’s sales of every book is donated to that amazing organization.

About the Dogmothers series

Daniel Kilcannon, a widower with six unmarried kids, has not only orchestrated wonderfully happy endings for all his offspring…he’s found one of his own. That leaves his grown nieces and nephews plus his adult stepkids all in need of their own magical romances. Is The Dogfather too preoccupied with his new lady love to pull the strings and make the matches? Maybe. But there’s a new team in town and these two might be polar opposites in life but they are lined up in love. One grandmother has the steel spine of a Greek warrior, the other has the heart of an Irish poet. Together, along with two darling dachshunds, these Dogmothers won’t stop until all nine of their grandchildren are hooked, hitched, and happy.

When Agnes Santorini arrives in Bitter Bark, she has something to prove. The notoriously nasty Greek grandma seeks to show her growing family that she’s an all new Yiayia, inside and out. At the same time, Finola Kilcannon, the beloved octogenarian Irish blogger, knows that her role as the mistress of Waterford Farm is now in the hands of her son’s fiancée, and it’s time for Gramma Finnie to start the next chapter in her life. It doesn’t take long for these ladies to realize that they are stronger, better, and way more powerful together than apart, so they move into a Victorian that’s aging as gracefully as they are, and get to work. It takes a wee bit of meddling, a dash of manipulation, and plenty of help from man’s best friend, but the Dogmothers soon become as good as their predecessor, the Dogfather, at orchestrating a happily ever after.

In this new spin-off series, there’s laughter, love, heartache, hope, and happy endings in store for the Mahoney, Santorini, and, of course, the Kilcannon clans. With nine full length novels planned, plus a holiday novella every year, readers are in for a treat that will take them through 2021! Fans of The Dogfather series will find the same level of emotional intensity, familiar family connections and characters, and, of course, an unforgettable dog at the very heart of every story.

Watch for the first two books in 2019:
HOT UNDER THE COLLAR (on sale May 31 – preorder now!)
THREE DOG NIGHT (coming Fall of 2019)
And many, many more!

Review: Misadventures With My Ex by Shayla Black

Misadventures With My Ex

Shayla Black

Misadventures Series

Kindle Edition, 1st edition, 196 pages
Published March 26th 2019 by Waterhouse Press

Once, Eryn Hope fell fast and incurably for Weston Quaid. And he seemed to adore her too—until she learned their love was built on lies when he walked out on their wedding day.

Three years later, West has finally won control of his family empire and fortune, but it cost him Eryn—something he regrets every day. When business forces him to return to her life and temporarily shut down her livelihood, of course she’s furious. But their chemistry is still beyond combustible. So he makes her a proposition: he’ll take care of her until her bistro reopens…if she becomes his mistress. Her mind screams no, but her body whimpers yes, yes, yes.

As soon as West has her back in his bed, their passion burns hotter than ever. So do his feelings. But can he and Eryn really recapture the love they shared? And when their bargain ends, will he be the one shattered this time or will they finally come together forever?

***Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.***

4 Stars

 

Eryn was head over heels for Weston. A man who swept her off her feel, made her feel and was ready to spend the

rest of her life him. That is until he didn’t show up for the wedding. No call, no note, no explanation. Eryn picks up the

pieces of what should have been her happily ever after and opens her own business. She tries to move on but something

about Weston, has him stuck in her heart, even though he broke it.

Weston comes from one of those power businesses family’s. When he finds love in a place his mother doesn’t

approve, Weston tries to make it work but in the end he gives up love for family politics. Or does he? Three

years has past and nothing has changed his feelings for Eryn one bit, but convincing the woman of his heart

will be a whole other story.

Shayla Black gives readers another hot and sexy read with Misadventures With My Ex.  Second chance stories

are some of my favorites. Eryn and Weston are amazing together.  Being such different people, they give a balance

to each other in subtle ways that intern make them each a better person. They have chemistry and attraction, but

discovering the truths of the past they learn that honestly and trust are they only way they will work.  Never falling out

of love with your ex, can have it rewards.

Her life is a joke.

She doesn’t step on cracks in the sidewalk.

She laughs at inappropriate times.

She talks when she shouldn’t.

She is clumsy and trips on air.

She is finally on his radar.

She laughs at inappropriate times.

She talks when she shouldn’t.

She is clumsy and trips on air.

She is finally on his radar.

God help her now.

Lani Lynn Vale has done it once again.

Ever heard the term calamity Jane? Well that’s Raleigh. Queen of the klutzes.  Like myself, this woman will fall going up stairs. A sweet and kind soul that has a disaster happens circumference around her that follows her everywhere she goes. Sometimes claiming others in that disaster. Raleigh has more strength than one would this. Knowing the term walking disaster is light for what she is, she gets up each day and face it head on.

Ezra is one of those people you can’t judge a book by its cover. Well there are moments that made me dislike him, I did realize that once I got to know him he redeemed himself in many nice ways. You could call him a player, but I would say he was just a man that didn’t know what he wanted until it literally fell on his lap.

Ezra and Raleigh story is everything I have come to love and expect from Lani Lynn Vale. A good plot, distinctive character personalities, a good helping of humor and some super hot sexy moments. Hissy Fit is the first in Ms. Vale’s The Southern Gentleman series.  Without giving anything away, there are some sensitive moments with in the book, but are handled with elegance and style. Ms. Vale created an engaging story that is emotional, humorous and sexy. That’s definitely a winner in my book.

About FALLING WITH YOU

Available July 16th, 2019

The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I’d been living in the past. I’ve tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn’t have done that without Aiden Connolly.

The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she’s gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.

~~

I left them all behind.

My brother.

My family.

My best friend.

And her.

Only Sienna Knight doesn’t realize what she means to me. But before I can make sure she knows, I need to figure out exactly what that is.

About BREAKING WITHOUT YOU

Available April 16, 2019

From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.

~~

I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.
