Vanquish (Deliver, #2)

Vanquish by Pam Godwin My rating: 4 of 5 stars Thankfully not as dark as the first, but still dark This series deals with dark (as in pitch-black) subject matter. This second book details the attempted redemption of Van from the first book. In the first book he was unforgivable. Selfish. Cruel. He did incredible […]

Deliver (Deliver, #1)

Deliver by Pam Godwin My rating: 4 of 5 stars Whoa- that was completely unexpected! I had put off reading this book as I had thought it would be too much of a departure from my usual reads. I like a book with an alpha hero, and thought this would be one where the female […]

Close Remembrance (The Krinar Chronicles, #3)

Close Remembrance by Anna Zaires My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m glad I finished this series, but this final book missed the mark a bit for me. The most suspenseful aspect for me was the villain (the reveal of whom would have made for a killer cliffhanger for book 2 as opposed to an […]

Close Obsession (The Krinar Chronicles, #2)

Close Obsession by Anna Zaires My rating: 3 of 5 stars I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first one. I kept reading, intrigued by the nameless villain, only to find that we don’t find out who he is, nor does any big plan go into action. As a result I felt like […]

Close Liaisons (The Krinar Chronicles, #1)

Close Liaisons by Anna Zaires My rating: 3 of 5 stars Let’s start with this: this is not my normal genre (meaning paranormal and/or extraterrestrial and/or fantasy). At all. I only read this because I am a die-hard Anna Zaires fan. As such I went in skeptical, but came out pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed a […]

Niccolaio Andretti: An Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novel (The Five Syndicates Book 2)

Niccolaio Andretti: An Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novel by Parker S. Huntington My rating: 3 of 5 stars Sadly, this one dragged for me. I ended up skimming a bit through the flashbacks to get to the relationship sections. I was going to stop with the series, but the sneak peek of the next one at […]

Ranieri Andretti: A Second-Chance, Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novella (The Five Syndicates Book 3)

Ranieri Andretti: A Second-Chance, Enemies-to-Lovers Mafia Romance Novella by Parker S. Huntington My rating: 4 of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! Well- color me impressed! I usually do not like novellas, and sometimes not even standalones, due to the limited pages in which to build characters/a relationship. However, THIS novella being a second chance story where […]

Keep Me Safe (Dark Nights, #0.5)

Keep Me Safe by Skye Warren My rating: 3 of 5 stars First, let me start by saying I love this author. I love her books. I was recently beside myself with love for a duet of hers. But this one? Sadly, this one didn’t do it for me. I saw the trigger warning. This […]

Asher Black (The Five Syndicates #1)

Asher Black by Parker S. Huntington My rating: 3 of 5 stars A good read, but it didn’t knock my socks off I liked this book. I’m not shouting from the rooftops in joy, ready to chomp at the bit for any new release, but I enjoyed it. And considering that this was the author’s […]

The Deal (Off-Campus Book 1)

The Deal by Elle Kennedy My rating: 4 of 5 stars Enjoyable NA (college) read This was my first read by this author, and I really enjoyed it. There was suspense coming from several angles- not just the main relationship. It kept the book moving- no lulls. I do wish there had been some resolution […]
