Review: Phoenix Unbound

Phoenix Unbound Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Straight of the bat, I am going to be honest. I didn't love this one and I didn't hate it either, it is legit some where in the between.

This story called Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven was a highly anticipated release for me, as always the world building was amazing, and yes ill be reading them all. I adore the cover, man do I ever!

Azarian and Gilene didn't capture my love as Brishen and Ildiko, it almost felt as if it was Silhara and Martise but smooched together. If you were hoping to go in this with anticipation of a start to finish action and romance you wont be finding that here. I found this story to be very slow, possibly to slow. The story its self has been told before, but I found with myself I couldn't DNF it because I was already invested to see what happened all the way to the end.

My favourite parts were when they ended back where Azarian was born, watching them fall in love and how Gilene finally stood up for herself believed in what was really happening. I hated her family, I felt they were so selfish. I am really looking forward to the next one, I think it will be fantastic, especially how this one ended.

I loved the Az, so much more then Gil, but then I loved the magic and what she could do. I thought wow, Grace can really create such an amazing and interesting worlds where you want to know more about, and the how's and whys!

I think Grace had won my over with Radiance, so coming into this one I had very, very high expectations.

This was a real enemies to lovers story, I think that what I didn't love as much as I was as I was hoping. But you guys I have to say it again and again, the world creating was so damn good. Phoenix Unbound is defiantly one to check out, the author has done a lot of work and research into this one, you can tell buy the way she writes about certain things. It is beautifully written and as I have said I would read more, and let everyone know to check it out, with a small warning that it is very slow moving.

Review: Cross Breed

Cross Breed Cross Breed by Lora Leigh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes, the wait is over my friends. Over the decade we have been all patiently waiting for this story, and it is so darn good you guys!
Breeds series, is one of my all time favourite series, it has had some ups and downs over the years but it is safe to say this was all round 5 stars, Cassie is everything and more. She is all grown up and she is mated, to her mate! Thank you Lora, thank you for providing us with this kick ass story. The main couple is perfect. I'm not going to tell you who the main guy is, I wasn't spoiled and I wont do that here. Reading this book just confirmed again why Lora is a queen in this genre, she is just that good. You will be shook, you will be flicking them pages quickly to see what happens next, and among other things too lol don't be a prude, you know what I mean! I am all about this smutty goodness right here, and with the overall arc continuing, the plot thickens.

Bring it on!

I cant wait to see what happens in the next one, because HOLY SHIT I did not realize who and who are mates and that person is taking the serum to stop the heat coming on, I am shook! It is going to be so hot though, and to see what happens with the plot.

I cant wait for everyone to read this book!

an arc was given to me for an honest review.

Review: Hidden

Hidden Hidden by Rebecca Zanetti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A new series by Rebecca Zanetti, and its started with a bang!

I enjoyed this book, with its quirky characters and very suspenseful plot.
I was pretty hesitant going into this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. Pippa is a shut in, who is on the run from her crazy cult leader, and Malcolm is this sexy ex cop who moves into next door but is forced into going under cover again.

The relationship works for me, the suspense did too.

I'm looking forward for the next one.

short and sweet review, I'm not going to spoil anything for everyone, go grab yourself a copy. You wont regret it!

Review: Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas

Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas by Katie Ruggle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Such a cute Christmas story, a romance about a hermit and a firefighter. Including kids.
I have to admit, though I like reading my Christmas novels around the actual time of the year, I couldn't help my self with this one. A Xmas story with a little suspense. Rocky mountain seems like a lovely place, both characters are interesting and I was invested to see how it played out. The only meh thing is that it was told in 3rd person POV. for me that is annoying but for some you may love that.

Review: Touch the Sky

Touch the Sky Touch the Sky by Kari Cole
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This was so bad, I didn't like it at all. I honestly thought I would have enjoyed it, but I didn't. I read the first couple chapters like hmm okay... but then after that It was just getting worse for me, I couldn't get into the character Hannah. The writing wasn't bad, it was good. but I think it took WAY too long for it to be finished. This is part of a series, I wasn't too confused, but it is what it is. Wasn't for me!

Review: Santa's on His Way

Santa's on His Way Santa's on His Way by Lisa Jackson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Christmas came early you guys, this is the perfect Christmas book. Four different stories, by four talented authors.

Each book was super cute, easy to read. You could read a story each night before Christmas, they make you feel good and happy.

I recommend this book to everyone, you will enjoy each one of the stories

Review: Healer's Need

Healer's Need Healer's Need by Rhenna Morgan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, WOW! I was hesitant to start this one, only because I accidently seen a few reviews say that they didn't enjoy this much, probably because they hadn't read the first one or maybe they have. I dunno I am not one for spoilers, UNLESS I am looking for them!
I kind of don't like when you hear about a book you are going to read get talked about. BUT I am happy to say I really, like really enjoyed this story.

I really enjoyed this book a lot, I am super happy it picks up right from the first one too, I really like this authors new paranormal world.

Tate and Elise, damn! what a smoking hot couple. They were seriously a delight to watch, grow and fall in love. I felt there attraction was real, I loved how Tate was with her, especially because she is a virgin in all aspects, but when she got her feet under her she gave it right back to him.

Great characters from the previous book, and the over all story arc rolling into this one, I want to talk about the ending but I cant because of spoilers, but do we think that this is the end?

What I really loved is that in paranormal romance you don't see this kind of of twist in shifter, clans with mates and magic and everything that this author gives us. I love that this is so unique and she writes strong women, and characters they you are invested in. does not hurt that her alpha mean are crazy in love with there mates when they find them!

I really hoping that we get a few more stories in this world, with Jade and Alek finding there mates too!
