Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

"I have always loved Miss Hunter's books from the very start. And this is one of my favorite series that she's written. Book four is just as wonderful as the previous three. She has a way with words and by the end, she's leaving you craving more. Book five can't get here soon enough!" - Goodreads

Despite the heavy subject matter (revenge, violence, culture clashes), The Red Road was a quick and satisfyingly intense read. Recommended. - Amazon
"Roller coaster ride of emotions is how I would describe this book. Melissa has created a strong female character, Caitlin, who has really made me think if I would be able to stay sane if I had the same abilities she has had to deal with in life while trying to go about everyday activities. A riveting story with dynamic characters." - Goodreads

The gods of chaos cannot be trusted.
When Darlena Agara declared to follow Red Magic last fall, she had no idea what she was getting into.
Wow!! It's all I have to say after this emotion filled story. My heart hurts!! For Ana, for Jackson, for my poor heart that has been through the ringer!! I received a copy of this wonderful book from the author for an honest review, and I have to say, this was quite a surprise!! This is the first book I've read by L.A. Cotton, and I'm glad I did!! Great storytelling, well written characters, and such a well written book." - Goodreads
"Although this story is based loosely on King Arthur, this is in no way just a sexy retelling of the classic tale. LB puts her own spin on it and does a fantastic job. This is a romantic love story that is made to stand the tests of time. The mixture of passion, love, joy heartache and suspense has left me wanting more, much more, from LB Dunbar and the rest of the boys in The Nights." - Goodreads

16+ "Overall this was a great book with a well developed world, strong character driven plot and fantastic blending of Dystopian and Futuristic elements while remaining grounded in the real world. If your a fan of the genre and looking for something new and unique, I highly suggest picking this book up. I will be rating Broken City by D.D. Chant." - Goodreads
The characters were fantastic in this book. They all contributed to the story line perfectly.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for sexy, romantic, thriller!" - Goodreads
The heart has a way of complicating decisions - Sinful Rewards 7: A Billionaires and Bikers Novella (Sinful Rewards #7) by Cynthia Sax
18+"As always, Cynthia Sax has beautifully written another enjoyable and delicious story for us to read. If this is the first time reading from the Sinful Rewards series, start on number 1. Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars. I loved reading the story, [...] 5 stars, highly recommend!!" - Goodreads

He slightly tilted his head to the right and gave me a confused smile. Then, he just stood there and gaped at me. I was now seriously doubting the whole honesty-is-always-the-best-policy idea. It sure as hell wasn’t helping me.
"Ok got to say I loved this book, there was so many characters in it with their only story to tell. That you got glimpses of but never the whole thing." - Goodreads
If I could describe my world in a color, it would be black. - Beneath His Darkness (Healing Hearts #3) by Renee Dyer
Cover Reveal -"This is actually the first book by Renee Dyer I have read. And HOLYWOW! Did it leave me wondering what I've been missing out on! I absolutely have to read Renee's other books now! While reading this book, I cried, I smiled, I cringed. I laughed, I wanted to hit stuff, and my heart jumped for joy. This lady sure knows how to throw a ton of emotions at you. And she does so intensely!" - Goodreads

"I was very surprised how much I liked the story; as only an 'occasional visitor' to the fantasy / supernatural genre I often find their stories and characters repetitive, but in Broken Aro I never once thought that to be the case and instead I found myself quickly taken into the world Wylie has created, just like a good book should do." - Goodreads
"False Finder is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that never ceases to keep the reader guessing. Loaded with twists and turns, the plot is well written and the characters are so lifelike that it feels like you truly get to know them." - Goodreads
When it comes to magic, more isn’t always merrier. - Misery Loves Company (Miss Misery #3) by Tracey Martin
"I have to say that the story reveals lots of secrets and there is lots of spine tingling adrenaline rushes to be had throughout the story along with surprising twists but what comes next promises to be even more interesting and thrilling so I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book." - Goodreads
18+ Once upon a time there was a wounded Prince who fell in love with an Angel. They got married, had crazy babies and everyone thought that they would live happily ever after. Everyone was wrong. Dead wrong.
Being the one chosen to kill the entire evil population is a burden heavier than sin. Not that I know what it’s like to sin, but I imagine this is worse. Killing is never taken lightly, even when sanctioned by our leaders, the same leaders who chose me to carry it out. I’ve lost count of how many Malryx I’ve executed for that exact reason. And now there is only one left. Only one evil being. My purpose of being is almost complete.
The idea of modernizing the Arthurian legends came naturally to me since I didn't want to set the story up the same way it's been done many times. As a writer, I wanted to write something that I'd have fun with so I wanted the story to be fresh for me and to create something I can believe and relate to. Read full interview here
"A super hot and sexy romance, fabulous multi-faceted and intriguing characters, a great story, and lots of funny banter. Angie and Colt are just fabulous; authentic and lovely characters, as only Avery Flynn can write them: he’s a sweet and gorgeous guy and Angie is a strong and ambitious woman. And what a crazy, fun passage with a Motown hit! And all this in a novella! Wow! Just wow!" - Goodreads
Her world has always been dark, but he might be able to change everything… Clarity: The Complete Series (Clarity #1-3) by Loretta Lost
"This is an unforgettable story [...]
This story portraits the pursuit of happiness against all odds. It is the tale of a brave woman and a great example of unconditional love frame in tragedy and betrayal. It has it all!!!
I highly recommend it!" - Goodreads
"Kelly has done it again. What a heartwarming Novella of two people finding love. One knowing it was there and the other having to find the way there. "- Amazon
They say life is about choices. You spend your life making decisions and dealing with the consequences, whether they are positive or negative. In my tumultuous frame of mind, I make a choice. A very poorly thought out choice, but one that I have to live with, nevertheless.

How can I ask a man to choose between me … and God? - Forbidden (Under the Skin #2) by Charlotte Stein
18+ How can you really get absolution for being possessed by the devil? I could say ten thousand Hail Marys and recite the Bible backward, and it wouldn’t make no difference. The demon she sees in me is invisible, and never seems to do nothing, so it’s not like I can just scrub him out or act like he’s not there. I can’t stop spinning the room around like in that movie with the girl who has no eyebrows.
"This Series is like a super sonic rollercoaster with each book being another more exciting, heart wrenching, nerve racking hair pin turn!! Every character is their own individual character with a personality uniquely theirs...of course they are all sexy, tough and drop dead gorgeous but that's what we want right?!!! Rachel and Sveti's story has been the most heart wrenching for me from the very beginning and I have been on pins and needles waiting for Shannon to write this one..." - Goodreads
"Trigger by Meengs is a great read with adventures abounding. I can relate to travelling round Europe and her descriptions added to my memories. The baddies are introduced early on but their identities are not revealed until near the end. Jordan is the main protagonist who is trying to hide one of her talents but more are revealed as the story progresses. Very much a page turner as the reader is dragged into the melee, waiting to see if she escapes." - Goodreads
17+ I savoured this book because as much as I was excited to get more of Chase Gartner (my favourite tattooed bad boy) I was also saddened that this was the last novel in the Judge Me Not trilogy. [...]
A beautiful story, brilliantly written by an amazing author. - Goodreads
"I don't think I thought that the Sweet Texas Series could get any better after Reno, Jackson and Jesse claimed their women, BUT...I wasn't anticipating MIKE HALSEY....Fiona....You are ONE LUCK LADY!!
He was just...A-MA-ZING...and the story was just so deliciously heart-warming...I was left with the yummy flutters and a few tears in my eyes...My Heart LOVED SWEET SURPRISE, and so did I. "- Goodreads

Fantasy, adventure, bravery, and a touch of sweet romance make Chasing Ravens a winner in my book." - Goodreads
I gave Breaking Braydon 5 stars, exploding ones." - Goodreads
I pulled him closer, but no matter how hard I tugged on him, no matter how much the muscles in my arms trembled, I could't get close enough - and that terrified me. *****
My heart ached, as if somebody had taken a ten pounds dumbbell ans smacked me square in the chest. I gasped as I fought for air and wondered if my life would always be this way - struggling just to survive - because no matter what anyone told me, I wouldn't recover from this.
"This series, I can't even begin to tell you how much I have loved every page. It really makes you think about the stereotypes that we label people with before actually knowing them as a person. [...] This story has everything you would want in the main characters; a kindhearted girl on the outside, but a strong willed athlete driven by her passions, and a bad boy with an attitude, but so caring and devoted when you peel the layers back." - Goodreads
"I loved these characters no matter what part of earth they were on at any given time. I also enjoyed how this book wrapped everything up in the end. This story had a lot of depth to it and really makes you think while you are reading it. I also loved reading the Masters POV. Don't miss out on this series." - Goodreads
Cover Reveal - There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the Furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive.

They say a soul is the immaterial essence, the animating principle, the actuating cause of an individual life.
But what if you had to share yours with the one person you hated the most?
The soul mate principle states that for every one soul there is another that will recognize its match, hence creating the perfect union.
But what if you had two soul mates, which would you choose?
What if your choices had eternal ramification?
18+ "This is the first time I’ve read anything from this author but it definitely won’t be my last because I completely loved this book. Beautifully Insightful is a suspenseful second chance love story with just the right amount of angst, plus I loved both main characters. Ryder Jameson is a perfect alpha male who’s also an amazing dirty talker, and Emily is truly a remarkable heroine."- Goodreads
“Yep, you’re just being a bitch. That’s what you wanted to say.” Vlad smirked. “Face it, you’ve got to make the move now. Even soul mates don’t wait forever. The gods never said soul mates have to end up together or that they can’t love someone else. Look at your patron.”
18+ "This is a beautiful take on The Beauty and the Beast, I fell in love with this story and would recommend it to anyone over 18. I think I have just found yet another author to stalk, Tyffani Clark Kemp reeled me in as quick as a wink and I was hooked forever. Yep, the story is just that good!" - Goodreads
When you’re not the first, but the last - Beautiful Redemption (The Maddox Brothers #2) by Jamie McGuire
She grinned. “Me, too. A lot of us do. We can drown your sorrows together.”
“I don’t have sorrows. Just memories. They’ll go away on their own.”
18++ "Ok...trying to type through the tears right now...wooo...that was rough, beautifully written, just rips your heart out cuts it up and then pours that acid spit from Alien on it. No, really, emotionally you get hit by a train and it just doesn't stop. But honestly I have to say that #2 is better than the first one. She set a bar with how amazing part one was and just knocked it out of the stratosphere this time." - Goodreads
18++ "This book was such a great read. I loved the intensity behind Tala and Adrian’s story, the way they both needed each other to heal. And the suspense! There’s a twist in this story I never saw coming, and as a reader - that is definitely something I love." - Goodreads
