With this click, I thee wed 

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book! It was completely heart stopping, an emotional rollercoaster. I loved how realistic it was in terms of fears, worries and suspicion. Although the main character Rachel did get on my nerves more often then not with all her self doubt and loathing, she did come across as pathetic and weak; but then I took into account how I would feel if I ever had faced the type of abuse and hate that she had, from the people closest to her. The ones that should love you unconditionally, so I realised that I too would act the way she did, with the same fears and self worthlessness she felt. I’m happy that they got their happy ending and could help each other through all their trouble. However I do feel as if it could have been a little longer, purely because I loved their story and wanted to see how the future unfolded for them (did they have the 4-6 children they dreamed of?) . I also wanted to know what happened with the lawsuit and the put come of that on their lives. I look forward to reading more from Bonnie R. Paulson and hopefully more of Rachel and Logan’s story! 
My rating 4.5/5

The Librarian By Christy Sloat

When Christy gave me the opportunity to read an ARC copy of her newest book The Librarian, I had no idea what to expect. I can say for certain it definetly wasn’t this. 

This book was amazing, I think only a few book have made me literally laugh out loud but this book made me cry with laughter. The humour and reactions from the character Emmeline to events in this book are hilarious. She is like every other 19 year old girl who wants her freedom and to follow her own path. However I loved how she would do what was needed of her, when she was needed most she didn’t bow to peer pressure or what was expected of her. I also loved how her character wasn’t stupid, when she distanced herself she could see people for who they really were, making her aware. In a way it became a protection for both herself and the Library. 

The plot twist was defiantly unexpected, I did think that something similar would happen, however the character in which the twist revolves around was very unexpected, however I should have seen it coming, all the signs were there; once you know where to look. 

I also loved how modern the writing was, when Christy annoced that the book would be set in the 1800’s I was intrigued as to how she would carry it through, I’ve never really been interested in period dramas or books, but the layout and combination of the old and the new was refreshing. 
I think Christy did a wonderful job! I look forward to reading more of her work, and I encourage you all to give it a read; as well as her other varied work. 

Look out for The Librarian, coming June! 

My rating 5/5

Her Wounded Dragon 

I received an Arc copy of Her wounded dragon from bewitching book tours. I was excited to get a hold of this romance shifters book (because I was running out of things that kept my focus), however it was like so many other shifter books out there. Similar story lines, the same hesitation between the couple bla bla bla… don’t get me wrong I still really enjoyed it, and it was a very good quick read. And yeah okay there were differences like Norse mythology and different clans and time travel, but let’s be honest where haven’t we seen these common topics in books today, especially in the fantasy genre. I also felt like there was something missing from the book… maybe that’s why follow on books have been writing; however this book could have included something more. 

I will however say the structure and writing style of Sky Purington was very good, and I do hope I get a chance to read more of her books in a different setting, so I can compare the differences or similarities in her work. It was something New, the same and intriguing all fit into one package.

Book Description:

 

Curiosity is a dangerous thing and temptation a death wish. Especially for someone like Vivienne with her complicated past and closely guarded secrets. Yet when she has a chance to get near the enemy because of a sexy dragon shifter haunting her dreams, she doesn’t think twice. Even if it means seeking out a paranormal dating agency and tagging along incognito to scope him out as her best friend goes on a date with him.

 

Kage knows within minutes of meeting Vivienne that she isn’t who she pretends to be. As the right hand man of the enemy, it’s his job to figure out if she’s a threat. More so, if she’s a risk to his hidden agenda and well laid plans. Soon enough, he realizes the only danger she poses is to his hardened heart. After all, there’s no defense against the scorching desire dragons feel when they find their long lost mate.

 

Excerpt 1 (spicy)

 

Julie dashed all hope of close contact with Viv when she sat between them. Soon after, the only waitress in the joint leaned over their table far enough to offer an ample view of her cleavage as she batted her lashes at him. “What’ll ya have, handsome?”

Kage gestured at the girls. “Ladies first.”

“Wine’s fine,” Julie said.

“Long Island Iced Tea, please,” Vivienne murmured. “Double the tequila.”

Interesting. Liquid courage?

Julie’s eyes widened on Viv before she spoke to the waitress. “Something to munch on too, please.”

“Sure.” The waitress tossed down a menu. Her eyes never left Kage. “And you, sweetheart?”

“Whatever you have on tap’s fine.” He winked just to see if Viv reacted. “The stronger, the better.”

Viv didn’t react. Not outwardly. But he got the impression the waitress had a target on her back.

“So, Julie.” Kage rested his arm on the back of Julie’s seat, yet another test to see how her assistant would react. “Tell me more about yourself.” He offered a casual smile. One designed to cultivate trust. “Running a P.I. business sounds intriguing.”

“It does…it is.” Julie nodded. “Very intriguing.”

“I’d love to hear more.”

“Yeah, sure.” Julie began pressing the pad of her thumb against the edge of the table as though trying to pinpoint how to spin her bullshit tale. “It’s…complicated.”

As complicated as not having researched her lie before telling it.

“Complicated, how?”

“Like, just…well, you know…”

He warmed his smile even more. “I’m afraid I don’t.”

Julie swallowed, her eyes glued to his as she tried to come up with something.

“It’s complicated because it’s detective work,” Viv cut in as the waitress plopped their drinks down, didn’t bother with a food order but flashed five fingers at him, winked then sauntered off. He supposed that meant she’d be available for sex out back in five.

Figure the odds.

“Well, then, tell me about detective work.” He grinned at Viv. “Is it as boring as it sounds?” A languid grin curled his lips. “Or can you make it sound exciting?”

He didn’t miss the catch of her breath.

“I suppose that depends on what you’re investigating,” she replied before she brought the straw to her lips and sucked.

He’d been around a lot of beautiful women who offered to do all sorts of creative things with their mouths, but nothing compared to the way Viv worked a straw. A bolt of lust slammed into him as her sexy-as-sin lips wrapped around that little bit of plastic and sucked up over half her drink.

There was no stopping his arousal.

Or his low growl.

He didn’t care who she was or if she might have been planted by the enemy, he wanted her. And it didn’t matter where. His eyes skirted from the bathrooms to the rear entrance to the damn linen closet. Then his eyes dropped to the table. All it would take was a little dragon magic, and he could bend her right over this. None would be the wiser.

And if she wanted to keep sucking on that little straw the whole time, who was he to judge?

Meanwhile, Julie’s eyes were wide as saucers on him, and Viv had gone perfectly still. Too still. That’s when it hit him. A scent unlike any other. Sweet. Spicy.

Female dragon.

But not just any female.

Her.

Vivienne.

 

Excerpt 2 (less spicy)

 

Julie, the one who had contacted Gerri about finding a date, was an attractive redhead. Beautiful most might say if they were of a mind to better appreciate her. And he would. After a few more cupcakes. Right now he was still recovering. The other, Julie’s assistant, Vivienne, was a mousy blond with thick tinted glasses and a bad slump.

Yet there was something about her that seemed…off.

He inhaled and detected no scent outside the usual female interest. He saw red and looked through his dragon eyes. Nothing there either. All he could detect was synthetic hair. So she wore a wig. Many women did on occasion. At least in his clandestine circles.  

But this wasn’t one of his clandestine circles.

“Julie, meet Kage,” Gerri cut into his thoughts. “He’s currently a Navy pilot.”

Yeah, only because he couldn’t spread his own wings and fly.

Until then, an F/A-18 Super Hornet would have to do.

“Kage, meet Julie,” Gerri continued, that same glint of amusement still in her eyes. “She runs her own P.I. business.”

He did his best not to choke on his cupcake. Julie, with her thundering heart and flushed skin, was no private investigator. Not based on her noticeable reaction to him. But Vivienne? His eyes slid her way. Now there was a steady, practiced heart rate. There was someone barely breaking a sweat despite that uncomfortable wig and bulky wool suit.

When the oven buzzer went off in the kitchen, Gerri smiled. “Ah, the vanilla cupcakes are done.” She stood and looked at Julie. “Mind helping me get them out of the oven? It’ll only take a moment.”

Shouldn’t she be asking Vivienne? The one he wasn’t here to meet?

“Of course, vanilla’s my favorite,” Julie chirped and leapt up so quickly Kage knew she wanted to be here about as much as he did. So what was the deal? Was she swindled into this too?

Or did this go deeper?

He had spent half his life looking over his shoulder, so he had a pretty good eye for deception. A masterful eye, some might say. His gaze slid back to Vivienne. She hadn’t spoken once. Maybe it was time she did.

“So what made you decide to come along with your boss to a dating agency, Vivienne?”

He liked the feel of her name on his tongue.

Vivienne.

He focused on her lips as she licked them quickly and murmured, “Moral support.”

“Ah,” he whispered, his gaze still lingering on those full, lipstick-free pouty lips. They were about the only thing she hadn’t been able to hide. Because she was trying to hide, wasn’t she?

Let’s see if he could rattle her.

“So I assume Julie knows I’m a shifter or she wouldn’t have reached out to Gerri for a date.” He perked a brow. “It’s not every day a girl’s interested in meeting a dragon.” He lowered his voice in light-hearted warning. “After all, we run a little aggressive in the bedroom.”

Vivienne swallowed, her voice suddenly husky. “I’m sure Julie knows what she’s doing.”

“But do you?” he nearly said as a slow grin crept onto his face. She liked what she heard. Yet there was still no scent of arousal. Strange. And telling.  

This woman definitely wasn’t who she pretended to be.

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Hunted is by far one of my favourite reads of 2017 so far. A beautiful spin-off of Beauty and the Beast with hints of the Classic Russian Tale. Meagan’s writing Is beautiful and simple; you don’t have to try hard to interpret what she was writing and the meaning behind it. I also loved the relationship journey between Beauty and the Beast; First Enemy, then allies to friends and then Eventually the blossoming romance that all Beauty and the Beast fans have come to love and adore. 

I love reading anything about Badass heroines, so Beauty’s strong and relentless character really intrigued me from the beginning. I couldn’t put it down and enjoyed every second of the Huntresses story. 

A must read. My rating 5/5 

The Game Begins & The Knight By Victoria Danann


Hey Guys, 

Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours I was able to review these two epic reads. They were both similar and very different to anything I have read before. Although only a few chapters in each book I was able to enjoy every second of both books. 

Victoria’s sense of humour in the book really shocked me, I couldn’t not stop laughing from the names given to the mortals, lokis misbehaviour to how Jean acted at the dinner table. 

It was interesting to see a new adaptation of Norse mythology and the children that would assentually have been born to the world of gods. High school is hard enough, but just imagine having to play a game to please your parents. All when you don’t even know what’s happening, their memories wiped. They children have to rely on instinct and a few wild cards that their parents through in for a bit of fun. To win the game the kids need to build alliances, all of which reminded me of the hunger games; and in a lot of aspects I found that I could see the similarities between the two series. 

I honestly couldn’t put the books down.  My recommendation would be for anyone interested in any different mythology, dystopian and ya books in general. Victoria’s sequel to the game begins is the Knight, released on the 26th Of April this year;
Jean Marre’s recent life has been one big surprise right after another. First his family moved to SoCal from a remote French Canadian town. Then he began feeling a strange compulsion to watch over a smart little blonde named Ever Moore. In fact he found himself restless, distracted, and uncomfortable if she wasn’t around.
 Before there was time to adjust to any of that, he was informed that his parents were going to South Africa for a few months and leaving him with his mother’s friend, who happened to be Ever’s mother.

Life just couldn’t get stranger.

 Or could it?

Please please go and check out these awesome books, available on amazon. 

My total 3.5/5

Daughter Of The Pirate King

 

The Daughter of the pirate king, is a book that has only just been released. Even though that’s the case, I have heated nothing but good things about this book. I can happily say I was not disappointed. 

I absolutely loved this story, so much so that I couldn’t put it down (even at work). On the cover it says that readers should rejoice due to the fact that they main character Princess Alosa is so much like Captain Jack sparrow. I couldn’t agree more, it was fascinating to be inside the mind of a pirate so cunning and smart that it felt as if I was Alosa experiencing these adventures for myself. 
Even though I am an avid reader I find it hard to put myself in the characters shoes, however that wasn’t the case for this book. It was completely unique and well written, with plot twists coming out of the wozzoo! I look forward to reading more of this series and from Tricia Levenseller 🖤♠️
My rating 5/5 

Havoc Rising & Chaos Unbound by Brian S. Leon 

I absolutely love all stories about Fae and the different courts and story lines that authors create to go along with these legends. That’s why I was so excited to get my hands on these bad boys. 

I would highly recommend both books to anyone who loved action and adventure.  These books are full of Non-stop action, bloody battles and secrets that will literally leave you shivering.  

Although Chaos unbound was only just released (February 2017), and written as the second instalment of this series, I felt that I could be a stand alone. It’s not imperative that you read Havoc rising before hand, enough back story is included in Chaos Unbound. 
However due to the adult language written within Chaos Unbound, I wouldn’t recommend it to younger readers. I also felt like the book was too long winded, it didn’t need to be as long( however like I said earlier if you like non-stop action it will probably entice you more. 
Over all a 3/5 rating. 

Winter Song

 

Tragic, broken, confusing and heartbreaking. For anyone who’s read this book, will know exactly what I mean when I say my heart broke reading this twisted and wretched book.

In no way am I saying this book is awful, on the contrary it was amazing and very unique. I can guarantee that you haven’t and will never read a book like his. I also loved the Latin and German twists through out the book ( I had fun, trying to google translate them)

S.Jae Jones is a very talented writer, every single character confused me beyond compare. This twisted, dark and chilling story will leave you confused, torn and uterally satisfied.

However I am a sucker for Happy ending, if you like me yearn for that happy ending and that one kiss that stops time, then don’t read this book!

But for all you Nicolas sparks and Shakespeare fans that love tragedy and broken hearts then this book is definitely for you. This book had so many complicated twists and turns that I didn’t know where it would lead.

Just like A Court Of Thorns And Roses, when Feyre had the chance to say I love you to save the world; she didn’t.  I feel that that one sentence could have completely changed this book from a tragedy to my dream book.

Alas not every read can be my perfect read. I would vote it 3/5
