KISS OF VENGEANCE (A True Immortality Novel #2) by S YOUNG (Samantha Young)

”Killing someone is never easy, Rose, and the first time you’re able to walk away from it without feeling that death mark your soul means you’re losing your soul.”

Kiss of Vengeance was a mammoth of a book in Sam Young’s new paranormal series about Fae, Vampires, Wolves, Witches and Warlocks. We are absolutely loving this series, which is the type of brilliantly written paranormal that speaks right to our hearts. Whilst we didn’t end up loving it as much as War of Hearts, the first book in this series, we still fell utterly in love with Rose and Fionn as individual characters, as well as their kick-arse slow burn romance. The paranormal and mythical world, which Sam Young has created in this series, is absolutely brilliant. So well written and superbly detailed, making it both evocative and compelling to read. There’s no question that Kiss of Vengeance was character and story driven at heart, which is what makes for a great read!

Whilst this series can definitely be read as standalones, we wholeheartedly recommend reading it in order. Whilst War of Hearts is summarized in Kiss of Vengeance, nothing is quite like experiencing the story for yourselves.

FASHION JUNGLE by KATHY IRELAND & RACHEL VAN DYKEN

“There is no in between. That’s not life, and that’s not how people should love, with only part of their souls or just when it’s easy and pretty. Love is ugly, it’s painful, it’s full of sorrow, long days, terror filled nights. Love asks for everything and nothing all at once. I love the only way a person should love. With every part of me that’s tethered to this universe”

It’s a jungle out there! Wow! Just Wow! What a uniquely, thrilling, lusciously dramatic, romantic and suspenseful read! Based on true stories and events, we felt like voyeurs, enjoying a 'behind the scenes' look into the mired world of the fashion industry, through the eyes of three very different, formidable yet achingly vulnerable best friends. With twenty years in the fashion industry, Zoe, Everlee and Brittany, have secrets…many, many secrets and we were dying to hear all of them. Starting with the death of their best friend Danica.

The gripping synopsis gives you all you need to know about this story and its various players and it's a story that's best enjoyed completely spoiler free. As we closed the last page, we felt as though we knew each of the characters intimately, experiencing the myriad of emotions felt by the characters, desperate to uncover their pasts and devour the secrets they slowly shared with us.

LEAVE ME BREATHLESS by JODI ELLEN MALPAS

“This is me, Ryan. There is nothing else for me to give you, just this. Isn’t it enough?”
I find myself smiling almost immediately, her message received loud and clear. It is more than enough.’

If you’re a fan of Jodi Ellen Malpas you’ll no doubt be dying to flip the pages of her latest standalone, Leave Me Breathless. The trademarks of this author are all apparent, the ones we’ve all come to love from her, but in Ryan Willis, although still possessive and commanding, we have hero somewhat ‘softer’ for want of a better word, and we loved him! In saying that, Ryan Willis very much retains the masculine alpha Jodi writes so well. Ex-M15 and army, he’s the guy you’d want on your side…and in your bed. Phwoarrr, he really is very delicious without being overbearing!

We were certainly kept entertained throughout Leave Me Breathless, falling in love with the characters – especially the banter with Ryan and his daughter, Alex. She really was an old soul and gave us quite the giggle. The closing chapters were especially emotional and a perfect place to end Ryan and Hannah’s story. A charming and at times suspenseful story we adored!

DEVASTATED (Anger Management #1) by R.L. MATHEWSON

‘Over the past several months he’d become her best friend. He made her laugh, teased her, tormented her, made her feel protected; and those times when she struggled, he was there holding her and letting her know she was safe. For the first time in her life, she felt…Whole.’

Devastated by R.L Mathewson has shot itself right into our top reads by this Author. We absolutely loved it. Having been huge fans since 2011, we found Devastated to have the trademark humour of RL Mathewson which we love so much, but with a brand new mature and emotional twist to her writing. There’s no question that whilst easily recognisable as a Mathewson story, Devastated shows a new side to her. There is something very special about a slow burn romance where the characters start off as enemies, become friends and eventually fall for each other. It was pure emotional angst peppered with humour and raw vulnerability.

HER WILD RIDE (Red Dragons MC Series Book #1) by HEATHER VAN FLEET

‘The moment I sat across him in that booth last night, I had him pegged. Tormented and broody, secrets running amok in his head, angry at the world, but willing to give it a shot regardless. In a way, Niyol and I were kind of alike. I, too, wanted a new shot at life. A shot where I could just be me, forgoing my past and my pains for a chance at reinventing myself. Who I was as a woman, most of all. No longer would I be someone’s second in life.’

Her Wild Ride by Heather Van Fleet is our first book by this Author and we fell in love with her writing and her characters. This story really is a story of two halves. The first half is a slow burn romance between two people from very different walks of life. They are placed in a situation of close proximity, over a lengthy road trip, where the author does a stellar job of establishing a growing connection by fleshing out her characters. Their past, present and their need for new beginnings.

This wasn’t a typical MC romance, well, not like one we’ve read before. Rather than jumping straight into the MC life, Her Wild Ride is all about the characters, with the MC world set as a background until the latter part of the story. We loved this story-telling and truly connected with both Niyol and Summer, individually and as a couple. We wholeheartedly believed in their ‘opposites attract’ romance, so when the MC world caught up with them we felt all the angst and emotion.

STORM and FURY (The Harbinger Series Book #1) by JENNIFER L ARMENTROUT

“You want to see the stars?” Zayne asked...
”Then hold on tight, Trin. I’m going to get us as close as we can.”

Storm and Fury is a YA paranormal with eighteen-year-old heroine, Trinity Marrow who has lived a very sheltered life in a compound guarded by Wardens, hiding an ability which only she possesses and keeping a low profile because of who and what she is. A secret weapon waiting to be unleashed on the world joining the fight against demons, Trinity is a force to be reckoned with. Suffering from a progressive eyesight disorder she trains for a darker future, knowing what’s coming and realising that every single demon will hunt her upon discovery.

Storm and Fury is everything we love about the YA paranormal genre. It had the supernatural wonder of gargoyles, demons, angels, and ghosts. Kick-arse action and a slow burn romance. We were compelled by the fantasy and intrigued by the mystery whilst we laughed at the brilliantly placed humorous banter.

If you’re a fan of the Mortal Instruments series you’ll love this one! Get ready for Gargoyle shifters, Witches, Demons in various guises, Fallen Angels and everything that exists in between….By the way…who knew Gargoyles were so H.O.T!!!!! We are counting the days for more….

JANE DOE by VICTORIA HELEN STONE

5 brilliant stars!!!!

'I've never killed anyone. I'm not that kind of sociopath. But you never know. Desperate times…'

We’re always on the hunt for stories that offer something a little different, so if you’re like us and thrive on unique stories, then you MUST read Jane Doe. It was FANTASTIC! A suspenseful, wickedly amusing story with captivating mature writing that introduced us to a complex, funny and confounding character that is thirty-year-old, Jane Doe, a self-diagnosed sociopath with an acerbic wit and a vivid imagination. Jane Doe was one deliciously wicked and taunting tale we devoured from start to finish.  

Jane Doe is a brilliantly written, captivating, intriguing, wickedly funny and somewhat deliciously dark story of revenge. Nothing is off limits in Jane Doe. Trust us, you'll devour this book!
