Review: The Sorcerer’s Concubine by Jaclyn Dolamore

Read on amazon here:

I did not know what to expect with the first book in this series. I am ashamed to admit, I looked at the title and lumped this book in many other genre cliché fantasy erotica books. I apologise to the Dolamore for this!

__

Born of wood, cloth, and a substantial dose of magic, Velsa is a Fanarlem, a beautiful artificial girl. Raised to be a concubine, she has seen her friends at the House of Perfumed Ribbons sold off to be the pets of wealthy men. Now her own dreaded day has come. Grau Thanneau is a kind and handsome sorcerer who expects to own a spectacular piece of spellwork–he doesn’t realize that everything he has been told about Fanarlem is a lie. Velsa is not a dull-witted doll, but an intelligent and luminous soul who captivates his heart. Neither of them expected to fall in love, in a land where the law will never recognize her as his equal…

__

This book has an amazing premise, such an ingenious world and honestly made me want to read more right from the first page. It’s the concept of ‘love dolls’ in a fantastical setting, and a country on the border of war.

If you loved the Grisha series by Leigh Bardudo, you will love this novel!

If you love a good shifter romance, and a second chance romance novel then this book is a combination of the two. This is a good light read, with just the right amount of tension and mythology to keep the story interesting.

Review: Firebolt by Adrienne Woods (The Dragonian Series) 5/5 Kindle Free eBook

firebolt_1-banner.jpgGet Free on Amazon here:

It’s been a while since I had read a book that has transported me into a world, so well constructed, so beautiful and in-depth that I’ve had to purchase every book in the series and stay awake until 4 am for two days running to cram as much of the books into my skull as possible.

Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year old Elena Watkins was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena’s in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a Prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh. And the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe – in herself.

This is that series. This is what you need if ACOTAR and Harry Potter are your bread and butter. The mythology of each of the dragons, the magic school and the slow build up with the main character make for a well-paced story that reveals just enough to keep you salivating for more.

Review: Real Ugly (Hard Rock Roots #1) by C.M. Stunich 5/5 FREE eBook

17869239Free on amazon here:

Ever been thrown into a book headfirst. Right into a perspective that leaves you feeling dirty, sexy and transcendent? This is Real Ugly in a nutshell.

The effect this book has had on me? Damaged characters, complex flaws and a new pendant to want to write the word ‘f***’ every other word. Oh yeah. This book is absolutely amazing.

It’s not just an exercise in broken character development and a well-built world on the rock and roll tour bus; it’s the mystery. The thrill and suspense. The bloodshed!

You need this book in your life. Read it now! It’s free, so you have no excuse.

Turner Campbell is an a**hole.
I f*cking hate him.
But I can’t get enough either.
He sings like an angel and f*cks like a devil.
If I could, I’d run away and never look back because to tell you the truth, I think this man might be the death of me.

& & &

Naomi Knox is a b*tch.
I can’t f*cking stand her.
But I can’t stop thinking about her either.
She looks like an angel and plays like a devil.
If I could, I’d f*ck her good and forget all about her, but to tell youthe truth, I think this woman might be my last saving grace.

Review: Infernal Magic by C.N Crawford (Kindle Unlimited)

30832756

Buy on amazon here:

Book 1 in the ‘Demons of Fire and Night series’

First off, the memory loss plot device is overused and typically I would just skip right over any synopsis that features those words, BUT, this series manages to twist it into something new and interesting.

She’s forgotten her past. Too bad her past won’t return the favor.

Ursula can’t remember a single thing from before three years ago, so she has to keep her life simple. All she wants is to earn enough money for rent–and maybe a bit left over for a new pair of boots.

But on her eighteenth birthday, all hell breaks loose… quite literally… when a hellhound shifter shows up in her kitchen. Kester’s lethally gorgeous, and he’s come with a terrifying message: Ursula owes her soul to a demon.

No one seems to care that she doesn’t remember striking that deal.

F.U or Former Ursula as the character calls her ‘pre-memory loss’ self has mad skills and has somehow made a bargain with a Hellhound in exchange for the gift of fire.

Such great character dialogue and this series weaves in so many questions that you have to read on to know the answers.

At the end of the first novel, Ursula has even less of an idea about who she is. The mythology of this book is brilliant and carries over well into the second book (Spoiler: which takes place on the moon BTW.)

A must read! 5/5

PENNIES BLURB

“I’m not the hero in this story, girl. You’d do best to remember that.”

Once upon a time, I was an eighteen year old psychology student.

Now, I’m a man’s property.

Stolen and sold, I’ve been decorated in bruises since the day my world changed two years ago.

I suffer in silence, I crave freedom, but I never break.

I can’t.

Until he arrives.

Elder Prest, the only man to look at me and see me. The only man more ruthless than my owner.

He wants me for reasons I don’t understand.

He claims me for one night then leaves and never looks back.

Until he returns.

And life becomes much more complicated.

DOLLARS BLURB

“I should never have asked for a night with you. This would never have happened if I’d had more willpower.”

Once upon a time, I was a mute captive who wished for death.

Now, I’m stowed away on a yacht.

Saved and taken, the thief who stole me demands my voice, my past, my everything.

I won’t give in.

But Elder refuses to take no for an answer.

He pushes and cajoles, slowly discovering who I am. Until I find out he plays the cello to escape his demons, all while his music conjures mine.

He’s rich, I’m bankrupt.

I’m mute by choice, he’s curious by nature.

So many reasons why we can never work.

But that doesn’t stop our connection, our passion.

Until one night, he ruins everything.

And our relationship becomes twisted and full of sin.

HUNDREDS BLURB

“Pim is the most dangerous woman I’ve met. Not because she can ruin me but because she has the power to steal my heart.”

Once upon a time, I wished to go home and forget.

Now, I’m strong and ready to fight.

Seduced and claimed, Elder no longer just demands my voice, he commands me to be a thief like him.

I refuse.

But he offers me things I shouldn’t want, favours I should run from.

In return for his protection, I’m ordered to steal enough pennies and dollars to buy back my freedom.

Only, we both aren’t prepared for how he changes me, evolves me.

It’s my turn to learn about him.

It’s his wish to teach me how to be normal.

Until something goes wrong.

And our life together comes to an end.

Review: Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram (Kindle Unlimited)

 

download (2)

Buy on amazon here:

Kelly Oram has a unique ability to transport you into the world of fame and drama that is so well rounded and developed you can’t help falling in love with her books.

Cinder & Ella links worlds with the V is for Virgin series, springing off from a minor character (Brian) and explaining his story. I particularly liked the internet friend aspect of this story.

I love the premise and the characters, particularly Ellamara.

I don’t want to give too much away, but you must read this book if you love a good YA romance.

Review: Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie (Kindle Unlimited)

22888864

Buy on amazon here:

Circus is family.

This book reminds me of that feeling you get when you see an aerial acrobats show for the first time, and you marvel at all of the feats that people can accomplish with their bodies.

This book manages to encapsulate all of the hard work, struggles, and the high-flying joy that comes with being a circus performer.

The romance between Nikolai and Thora evolves quite naturally from their innate chemistry, but the story is themed around the hard work, in both their romance and their careers in the circus.

I came away from reading this book with an urge to book myself onto an aerial hoop class.

You will love this novel, just sayin’.

Review: Mr Popular by Nicole London (Kindle Unlimited)

Buy on amazon here:

Everyone loves a good YA, popular crush trope don’t they? Mr Popular, the brother’s best friend and the innocent heroine.

This kind of book is my guilty pleasure. Whilst Mr Popular has a good back story and some turmoil thrown in for good measure, I can only give it 4/5, but it does the job. It’s a light read, without many real surprises but you know what you are getting into.

Review: The Girl Duet by Julie Johnson (Kindle Unlimited Series)

Read on amazon here:

The Monday Girl and the Someday Girl are the two books that combine to make ‘The Girl’ duet. Let’s just say, the description is wish fulfilment. A struggling actress, who has a very realistic internal dialogue (just sayin’) suddenly lands the lead part in a film.

This was not what I was expecting, and Johnson definitely throws a curve ball with the romantic interests and the relationships between the characters.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good contemporary romance, I think this is the perfect holiday read!

4/5
