**Coming Winter 2017**

Dahlia Clark is a Hell Broker. You want to sell your soul, she’s your girl.
The only problem? She’s not seen her boss, Luc, in over two centuries.
Not since he forced her out of hell, out of his bed and condemned her to be his eyes and ears on the surface.
As far as breakups go, it could have been better!

When Dahlia meets Samuel Rose, a male incubus with the London Underground scene wrapped around his finger, things are looking up in the romance department.
At least she can dust off a few of those cobwebs.

Wrong.
Lucifer doesn’t like it when people play with his things.
It doesn’t matter that he dumped her over two hundred years ago. The Devil wants Dahlia back, whatever the cost.

Fair Game by Monica Murphy (Rules – Book 1) 4/5

download (8)Buy on amazon here:

“It’s bad enough Jade Frost’s boyfriend dragged her to a boring poker game. It’s even worse that he actually threw her into the betting pot during an intense round — and lost. Talk about the perfect excuse for Jade to make him her ex-boyfriend. Now she supposedly belongs to the ultra rich, extremely gorgeous Shep Prescott. He could have anything he wants yet he seems to be in hot pursuit of her. No matter how rude, how snarky, how impossible she acts, it doesn’t stop him. Her horrible behaviour seems to make him want her more. When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade’s confused. There’s more to Shep than the carefree rich charmer he portrays. No way could he want a serious relationship with her — or could he?”

Fair Game is a brilliant romantic comedy, pitting self-proclaimed ‘Bitch Face’ Jade against Rich boy Shep. I am glad that it is a series because the chemistry between the two main characters is palpable, although I felt like it needed a little bit more drama (hence why only four stars) I am excited for the rest of this series. Unique, quirky and thought provoking about some of the hardships of wealth; I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

New look! Legally Yours by Nicole French – Cover Reveal

For anyone that’s interested, you can read my original review of Legally Yours here!

As I wait patiently for the sequel to Legally Yours (Titled ‘Legally Mine’) let me get you all excited with the new look cover re-design for the Spitfire series! I absolutely love it and just had to share it with all of you.

After reading the first chapter exert on Nicole French’s website, I am so desperate for the sequel to this series and the continuation of Brandon and Skylar’s story. The first book ended on such a revelation that it feels like torture to have to wait.

I am so happy that Nicole French chose one of my review quotes for the cover of her book, and it means the world to me to be able to connect and share the work of such an amazing writer.

If you haven’t checked out the book yet, it’s available on amazon here.

Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige 4/5

18053060

Check out the book on amazon, here:

“Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still a road of yellow brick—but even that’s crumbling.”

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’d heard the hype. This book had flooded my amazon recommends, so I thought I would give it a go.

Honestly? It was a good book. The story was consistent, and the main character had depth.

Unfortunately, I could only give it four stars for various reasons. Namely the unexplored characters of Dorothy and Glinda the good witch. I know there are prequels, but I wanted more insight into why they were the way they were. It wasn’t until the last ten pages that that was even explored, and even then, it wasn’t in-depth as there wasn’t enough fore-shadowing to make it seem real. It was left field and seemed like a way to sow the seeds for a sequel. (Sorry, my opinion!) Like, “boom! By the way guys…”

The descriptions and the vivid imagery of this book made it, and honestly, I have bought the rest of the series and intend to read it all in one go now!

Review: White Hart by Sarah Dalton 4/5

download (7)

Buy on amazon here:

“In a land where magic has withered for centuries, Mae Waylander is the last magic wielder in Aegunlund. She is the craft-born. But Mae has kept her true identity hidden from the world, and she’s not about to reveal her secret. Not when the King is searching for the craft-born to marry his heir, Prince Casimir.”

A young girl hiding from her destiny, and a brilliant white stag called Anta. What isn’t there to love. An epic fantasy world with well thought out mythology, a spoiled prince and enchanted woods, something about Sarah Dalton’s first novel in the White Hart series, is seriously addictive.

If you liked Frostblood by Elly Blake and the Muirwood Series, you’ll love this!

Review: Godhunter by Amy Sumida *New Fav* 5/5

product_thumbnail

Buy on amazon here:

“My life has never been normal.
I was born a witch. I know about the power of Nature and how to harness it. I know about a lot of supernatural things, but I never believed in god… not any of them. Until the day one tried to kill me.
That was when I became the Godhunter, though I didn’t know it at the time.”

Every so often, you get a fantasy novel that is heads and shoulders above the others.

So many factors come together in this series debut to make for a brilliantly paced, hilariously likeable heroine whose inner thoughts and her filter-less words make for coffee being snorted onto my desk.

I bestow unto this novel: favourite status.

Review: Catching Carly by Emma Hart 4/5

33514283

Buy on amazon here:

“My name is Carly Porter… And I’m really good at bad decisions.

How do I know this, exactly? Well, not including the time I accidentally bleached my eyebrows or sprained my ankle changing a lightbulb…
I had sex with my best friend’s brother.
Zeke Elliott has been a thorn in my side for eleven years. A very sexy, very tempting, very freaking annoying one. With big…hands.
And now my clitoris has a crush on the guy.
Seriously. I can’t look at him without my vagina performing accidental kegels. Which would be fine, but he’s Cain’s brother. I hate him. He’s off limits, right?
Right.”

Being Brooke was an eye opening and mental experience. I feel guilty that I couldn’t give this book the five out of five that Emma Hart’s insightful, awkward, and hilarious inner monologues deserve. The relationship between the main couple were brilliant but a bit stilted, there wasn’t much tension apart from the hovering spectre of the ex ‘Becky’, but she didn’t actually appear once.

Despite the lack of tension and … dare I say, plot, the characters of Carly and Brooke make up for any of that and meant that I left the final page of this book happy with the outcome.

I thoroughly enjoy Emma Hart’s Barley Cross characters, and cannot wait to see where this goes next.

Review: The Opposite of You – Rachel Higginson (Kindle Unlimited)

33932353

Buy on amazon here:

“I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.

The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.”

If you love hipster, food truck culture you will love this novel. On the flip side, if you love a bit of steamy and high pressure kitchen relationships this is also the book for you.

It is two sides of the coin of the restaurant industry and the relationship dynamic between both of the main character makes for a witty and brilliant, romance with depth.

The back and forth between the two main characters was hilarious.

One word: Salt

If you liked the film ‘Chef’, I would recommend this book.

Review: Stepbrother Inked by Violet Blaze 5/5

25754410

Buy on amazon here:

Florian Harper Riley has my heart and he doesn’t even know it. I used to think that was okay, that I’d get over him, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t purge his sharp green gaze from my thoughts.
He’s a tattoo artist, the love of my life, the man of my dreams.
But he’s also my stepbrother.

Sometimes you have to admit that you just love a tattooed bad boy and a forbidden romance. I have a soft spot for stepbrother romances especially when the lead male, aka Florian, is a cocky but loveable inked up bad boy.

This book is a good light read with a HEA, I would recommend for anyone that loves this genre of story!

Review: A Girl Called Dust by V.B Marlowe (Kindle Unlimited)

30370958

Buy on amazon here:

Arden Moss is used to being invisible. The kids at her high school call her Dust—something that no one pays attention to, that doesn’t matter. Then one impossible moment changes her life. When a boy named Fletcher gets hit by a speeding bus, she runs to help him, only to discover that he’s unscathed. He tells her it’s because he’s not entirely human…just like her. 

This book encapsulates what it means to be an awkward teenager. To not fit in with your family. To lose your best friends to the beast of popularity.

Unfortunately for the main character, Arden, she is also a monster. Part-Banshee and Part-Wendigo!

This book, and the books that come after it are brilliant. I must say that my favourite character is a tie between Fletcher and Arden.

Fletcher is unapologetically brilliant and hilarious. Witty and oblivious.

This book isn’t what you would expect at all. Marlowe throws enough curve balls that you don’t expect the book to end the way it does.

5/5
