Deadly Summer by Denise Grover Swank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you are a lover of mysteries, than this new series by Denise Grover Swank will keep you enthralled until the very end.

I have heard others say that this book is a good mixture of DGS’s other two mystery series, and while I can see it too, I feel it is mainly because the heroine, Summer, has plenty of sass and wit that is synonymous with this author’s brilliant characters. They have such complexities and flaws and growth that you can only fall in love with them. She is very clever in giving us well rounded hero’s too. Nobody is perfect, and characters shouldn’t be either, or they would be totally boring. Even the secondary characters have plenty of mettle and grit. Speaking of grits, not being from the south, I had to look up and get a visual of what Summer was eating with Luke. OMGosh it looked delicious!

Of course being a mystery, I can’t delve too much into the story line without giving a…

Infraction by Rachel Van Dyken

Based on the last book I read by RVD just a few days ago, I was really not looking forward to reading this but thought I'd best get it out of the way. Well color me surprised. I thought this was just great - there was family, there was friendship, there was heat. There were times I laughed and times I cried. A lot.

Infraction features characters we met in Fraternize: the lovable Kinsey and the delectable Miller. We find out what happened in Vegas and now that Kinsey is back home, what will become of them particularly with Kinsey's brother encouraging them to fake-date.

I loved Miller from the previous book and I still love him now. I felt like he got a raw deal previously and I'm thrilled that he got his HEA particularly with someone like Kinsey. She's got such a great personality and while I really felt for her with the way she was treated even though it…

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was the best that this author pairing have written so far and I’m a fan of their previous series. UNEARTHED provided immediate connection with a story that left me clueless, breathless, full of adrenaline and utterly drawn in.

Neither Jules nor Mia should find themselves on the planet of the Undying at the age they are, but both are there illegally on missions of their own importance, passion-filled and wanting to change the direction of their own lives and earth’s. What ensues is a twisty, unexpected tale of a civilisation long-gone that seemed to have intentions for earth to save it from something. This is a story with bandits, criminals, firsts, genius and survival. I felt absolutely on the edge of my seat from start to finish, which is kind of uncomfortable but completely worth it.

Mia was the making of Jules and Jules became the making of Mia, where integrity grew and selfishness diminished. Their fr…

The Wright Secret by K.A. Linde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Wright Secret is a brother's best friend romance. It is fun and witty with just enough angst.

This is Morgan's story. She is at the top of her game career wise. She has a fantastic family and great friends. What she doesn't have is romance. Love. She has secretly been in love with her brother's best friend for years...like 10 of them. She never thought he would think of her that way and was deeply worried it would harm her or his friendship with her brother.

Patrick has always like Morgan as Austin's little sister. He has had a few fleeting thoughts of her that weren't very sisterly, but worried over his relationship with Austin and the other Wright brothers killing him, he quickly stowed them away.

K.A. Linde gave me an action packed story that kept me intrigued. A few twists and a bit of angst were woven in peaking my interest. Morgan and Patrick are very explosive together. I…

Bear the Burn by T.S. Joyce
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know when you start a new series, and you can’t help but keep downloading the next book in the series. By the time you have finished you haven’t written a single review because you are too engrossed in reading the next book on that Authors shelf. Yep, I know J.S Joyce has hundreds of reviews.

If you haven’t picked up a book by this Author yet, you definitely need to take a peek.

Dade Keller is all alpha male and as stubborn as they come. He is fighting the inevitable where Quinn Copeland is concerned. She isn’t what he was expecting at all, but then fate does have a funny way of turning lives upside down even for a shifter.

Quinn is new to the area and hoping to fit in. Her past isn’t something she ever wishes to talk about. She’s so quiet and shy and pretty much keeps to herself.

Secrets always have a way of coming out. The Kellers have been hiding so many for a long time. When a fire breaks out and…

Bear the Heat by T.S. Joyce
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cora Wright is a news reporter. She’s been in the background trying to help the Kellers AKA Breck Crew since learning of their existence.
Most people - humans - often feel threatened by what they don’t know or understand. Cora is trying to change the minds of hundreds while still being true to her job.

Boone Keller. Boy, these men certainly know how to hold my attention. He’s been watching over Cora. If there is one thing I have learned while reading these stories is that the Breck Crew will protect the woman and their families with their lives. Boone is one fierce protector.

Boone is hiding the biggest secret from not only Cora, but his family as well. It’s a lot for a man to carry around. The sooner everything is out in the open the better things will be for everyone concerned.

I have enjoyed this series so much, I am off to check out other shifter romances by this Author.

A Bear for Christmas by Kassandra Cross

A Bear For Christmas: A Shifter Holiday Romance by Kassandra Cross
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Disappointed!! Why? Because although it says this book is 272 pages that is not how long A Bear For Christmas story is. The end is actually over at 47 percent. I have to say I am only feeling let down because I was thoroughly enjoying this story.

Two friends, Alyssa and Megan embark on an adventure. Alyssa has already previously been to visit the mountains in Vermont, but wanted to take Megan there. If anyone needed to get away it was Megan. She’s had an awful time, well that’s putting it mildly to be honest. Her ex is brutal and is currently in jail. Right where he needs to stay.

Megan wasn’t looking for anything other than good company, laughter, great food. She never expected to find herself in the arms of someone she thought could be the one. Love really does come at the strangest of times.

Mason is a complete hunk of a man. He’s the guy you see in your dreams. …
