Quickie Book Review – Lost and Found by Nicole Williams

Lost and Found (Lost and Found, #1)Lost and Found by Nicole Williams

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book! Everything about it is pitch perfect, from the complex cast of characters, to the serene setting and the plot twists… oy! As a introspective nut-case, I also adored the complicated family drama and “deep” moments. For sure, I’ll read more by this author!

Quickie Book Review – Here and Now Series by Lexi Ryan

Lost in Me (Here and Now, #1)Lost in Me by Lexi Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love, love, lurve this series!

The plot was original and delivered in way that kept me turning the pages, anxious to figure out the mystery and to see what happened next. There are several sub-plots going on and I really felt like I was a fly on the wall watching the drama unfold.

This novel (and series) is so d*mn good it’s crazy. I already gotten several friend to read it and now I’m dealing with their texts about it all hours of the night.

In fact, I picked up this book and read it way past my bedtime, then had to download book two before I’d even gotten out of bed the next morning. And then, horror of horrors, realized book three wasn’t even out yet!But don’t fret, book #3 was just released so go ahead and read them all! (I only had to wait a day for the release- the fates were smiling on me with that.)

Fall to You (Here and Now, #2)Fall to You by Lexi Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s been a while since a series has swallowed me whole and kept me flicking pages on my kindle well into the night. Part love triangle (or is it quadrangle?)and part mystery, this series is all heat and longing and twisty circumstances.

Did I mention that I loved it?

All for This (Here and Now, #3)All for This by Lexi Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hot damn, what a ride! This series kept me all twisted and tangled up right until the end. Even I wasn’t sure who I wanted her to end up with when I started this third book. After book one, I had a clear favorite (Nate) but then I started to like Max too. If I was having a hard time making a choice, it’s no wonder she took three books to do it :-) Not to mention the added complications and mysteries.

Whew, I’m sad to see it end, but glad I didn’t have to wait long for the third book!

Quickie Book Review – Vampire Sun by J.R. Rain (Samantha Moon series)

Vampire Sun (Vampire for Hire, #9)Vampire Sun by J.R. Rain

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series could only be better if Rain could manage to put out a new book every week or so, then I’d be happy. Who wouldn’t love a series about a Vamp mom with mystical qualities, a champion of the underdog, and she who flies on big black wings whenever her heart desires?

Seriously Rain, give me the next one S.T.A.T!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great collection with quirky, compelling characters and interesting plotting. I’ve read books by Weir before and loved them, so I’m not surprised that I fell into a book coma by the time I finished reading the entire set in one rainy day. Read!

Quickie Book Review – Hotter Than Helltown by S.M. Reine

Hotter Than Helltown (Preternatural Affairs, #3)Hotter Than Helltown by S.M. Reine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s getting to the point where I devour every S.M. Reine book I open up, and this one is no different. Typically, I gravitate towards books that feature a female heroine, but I’m really digging this series even though (because of?) it’s decidedly MALE main character.

I’m starting to think I have a bit of a girl-crush on the author, or at least on her out-of-the-box creative brain. I don’t know where she comes up with her ideas, but it sure keeps me reading her novels!

Quickie Book Review – The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank

The Curse Keepers (Curse Keepers, #1)The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a compelling, intricate novel. I thought the way the author wove in the missing settlement from the Outer Banks with native american lore was flipping genius, and the hot/cold chemistry between the main characters kept me on the edge of the page. And then there’s the danger and suspense element. Overall a great read!

Quickie Book Review – Eternal Night by Carina Adly MacKenzie

Eternal NightEternal Night by Carina Adly MacKenzie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What if the ancient Gods did exist… and what if they’re still alive, yet powerless after hundreds of years of nobody believing in them? Then you’d end up with this novel.

I especially loved the interactions between the handful of Gods left. Eons of interactions make for riffs that span centuries, missed opportunities and regrets over choices long-ago made. Part fantasy, part mystery, this novel is all page-turner.

Quickie Book Review – Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett

Eternal Starling (Emblem of Eternity, #1)Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I adored the premise behind this first book of a series. How past lives could potentially influence and come back to bite a gal in her present life… it’s just so intriguing. And the way that the author sets everything up with finesse and craftiness is just so tasty to read.

So what’s a girl to do when the love of your past comes back to claim you? Think you know? Well, you don’t because he’s not the only new/old guy in your life. So how do you choose yet again and how do you know who’s really your soul mate when they both say they are?

I don’t want to reveal any more, so you’ll just have to read it :-)

Quickie Book Reveiw – Mistress of Night and Dawn by Vina Jackson

Mistress of Night and DawnMistress of Night and Dawn by Vina Jackson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the vein of The Sleeping Beauty trilogy (Anne Rice writing as A.N. Rolequare- not sure if I spelled that correctly) comes this sensual tale of a young woman’s journey into a hidden world filled with timeless traditions steeped in eroticism and sexual exploration. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a spicy novel– no, it is so much more. It has layers, just waiting to be peeled with each turn of the page. Excellent read.

Quickie Book Review – Witch Hunt by S.M. Reine

Witch Hunt  (Preternatural Affairs, #1)Witch Hunt by S.M. Reine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have a few authors now that, depending on what genre I’m in the mood for, I will pick up and read without even scanning the blurb or reviews. S.M. Reine has quickly become one of my go-to authors when I’m in the mood for some kick-arse paranormal/ urban fantasy escapism.

This book met my expectations and then some. I also loved how this book had a little cross over with the Tarot Witches series (hope I’m remembering that series name right– I just read the first book in that series not too long ago.) Anyway, read it.

Perfect summer beach read… light and full of magic and intrigue. Oh, and quirky fun characters. Well, written with a creative, mystical setting!

Quickie Book Review – Where There’s Smoke by Jodi Picoult

Where There's SmokeWhere There’s Smoke by Jodi Picoult

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting short read… I’m a huge fan of Picoult’s, but I wasn’t completely won over by this novella. It needed more, ending at a place where nothing felt resolved and everything is still up in the air. Hopefully, it’s supposed to be a precursor to a full-length novel or something.

On a side note, I did like how the otherworldly elements were worked into this story– something I’m not used to reading with this author. I’d read more of the story for sure, if anything else comes out.

Quickie Book Review – Complicated Girl by Mimi Strong

Complicated GirlComplicated Girl by Mimi Strong

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adore this book! Loved Meanie and all of her quirky issues. Mimi Strong has done it again with this series. Her humor, insights into human nature, and her ability to knit together a fabulous cast of characters has made Strong my go-to author these days. I would literally pick up anything by her, even a dystopian novel about space rabies.
