Sorry it’s been a little while since I posted. This is due to a combo of brain fog with my ME as well as reading some bits I couldn’t do a review about as not due out till end of the month and October etc etc. (Plus I will admit I saw supernatural for the first time the other day and have already binged watched up to the end of season 2!)
So just before the brain fog kicked in I read the first of the Players of Marycliff books by Jerica Macmillan.
I have now read books 2, 2.5, 3 and 4!
2 – Convenient Fall and this follows the story of Chris and Megan
2.5 – Opening Hearts ( where Matt meets Hannah) – this is free if you sign up to Jerica’s newsletter
3 – Managed Hearts – this follows on from Matt and Hannah
4 – Unsaid things – we revisit Abby and Lance
As with all the books in this series you can read them as stand alone novels.
I really enjoyed these and do recommend them to anyone that wants a bit of hot romance. They are all well written and the sex scenes don’t leave you cringing or reaching for the sick bucket unlike some I’ve read before!
On this link you can find all her books. Definetly worth a read and I’m sure I’ll read books 5 and 6 in the series soon too!

If you read them let me know what you thought!
Coming up in future posts…..
City of vikings – Farah Cook
The Captain of the Monte Cristo – Sarah K L Wilson & John Gunningham
Advance – K A Duggsy
Think there’s a book I should read and review?
Contact me and let me know
Bit of a change from the books I usually blog about.
Summer Fling is book one of the “Players of Marycliff University”. Each book can be read as a stand alone or read as a series.
I came across it on Facebook advertised by the author (Jerica Macmillan) as a freebie, and once I’d read the extract Jerica shared from it I decided I had to read it.
“Why do you keep asking me out anyway? You’re Lance Kane, right?”
His smile faded, and his expression turned a little wary. “Yeah. I’m Lance Kane. Why do you think I keep asking you out? I told you I like spending time with you. Why else would I ask you out?”
Abby leaned forward now, pressing her point. “But Lance Kane doesn’t go out with a girl more than twice.” She motioned with her finger back and forth between them. “What’s the deal here, then? If you’re calling this a date, that makes three.”
Abby is a Spanish major who meets Lance a football player who’s just graduated at a party. Lance is a serial dater 2 dates tops and then he moves on. Abby doesn’t tend to date or party.
Opposites attract or so they say.
I fell in love with Abby and Lance, the more they learnt about each other the more in love with the book I fell (So happy to find that I can revisit them in book 4!)
A real feel good romance. So good that I’m currently reading the second book!
This is the first book of Jerica’s that I’ve read and would highly recommend her to anyone that likes romance or just a good sexy book.
Does anyone have any recommendations for me? or Any books you’d like me to review? Leave me a comment or send me a message via my contact form.
So I got given the chance to read Steal the sun by Stephanie Kelley.
I’d never heard of her before so was eager to give her a go, and wow! I am so glad I did!
The cover isn’t one that would usually draw me in, but they do say don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
Kodiak Sesi is a hunter… not the type that hunts game… She and her brothers hunt “others” these are creatures such as vampires and werewolves but also include shifters such as selkies/mermen etc. (Have you seen Grimm? Think of wesen and how they can woge).
Intrigued? So was I!
Steal the sun follows Koda and her brothers as they hunt others and try to find out who’s been committing a series of murders around their Alaskan home.
I absolutely love this book and fell in love with it within the first sentence. Kodiak and Rhen are such powerful characters and the mystery of their back story kept me up and reading all throw the night!
I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance and fantasy as well as fans of Grimm and probably Supernatural (sorry never seen and episode!)
Definitely a 5 star read!
In the words of Oliver “Please sir can I have some more?”
If you only do one thing tonight, get your hands on a copy and read!
Sorry for such a long gap since my last post, I’m currently busy reading an unedited ARC of The City of Vikings by Farah Cook so have been making lots of notes to email her.
Because of this I thought I’d do a post about a book I read earlier this year.
The dead list by Jennifer L Armentrout.
On the way home from a party Ella is attacked, she manages to get away…. But then things start to appear. A clown mask on her bed, a dead bird in her locker.
Why is she being targeted and is she the only one?
From the start this book grasped me around the neck and yanked me into it’s pages. I loved the story line from start to finish and I didn’t manage to guess the killer which for me is a huge deal as 9 times out of 10 I’ve worked it out before the author tells us who it is.
If you’ve read one of her books before, like me you’ll know you’re in for a treat. If you haven’t then this is a brilliant chance to sample her work.
I’ve managed to be very lucky and get my hands on a copy of Marked By Fate Origins.
This is full of short stories about the characters that are in the books in the Marked By Fate box set that is available to pre-order on ibooks and Amazon now! The Marked By Fate Box set is due to be released on the 24th of October.
Pre-order yours here:
The Origins box set is due to be released on the 7th of July you can pre-order yours here:
Have you read Teeth of the Gods by Sarah K L Wilson, or Shift of Shadow and Soul by Hilary Thompson? well they are in the main box set and have short stories in the Origins box set, and I call tell you they are AMAZING!
There are so many brilliant books in these sets! Some I’ve read, some I haven’t but the ones I haven’t will be reviewed here for you all!
One of my favourites in the Origins box set is Prince of Hawks by Sarah K L Wilson.
I absolutely loved learning more about Rusk from the unweaving trilogy which is a amazing trilogy (yes I know that the 3rd book isn’t due to be released until the 13th of July but I just finished reading it and it blew my socks off! )
I’ll leave you all to rush off madly and pre-order all of those!
Ohh almost forgot there’s also a colouring book in the series and it’s awesome! here’s a pic from it, but be quick as when I checked Amazon UK earlier there were only 2 copies in stock!
Have a fab weekend!
So earlier this year I read the Silence series by Natasha Preston which I really enjoyed so I decided I’d read all her other books.
I’ve literally just finished Reliving Fate which she released a week or so ago.
The story line and characters are brilliant!
Bella finds her sisters diary, her sister was murdered 12 years ago and Bella is determined to find out who it is that killed her.
It’s fast paced, thought provoking and I didn’t work out who the killer was which is great as normally I can work it out.
I would suggest people have a box of tissues to one side as you may need them.
Absolutely loved this book, highly recommend it although it does contains lots of adult themes such as sex, murder, drugs and mentions of prostitution.
look for the links below this gorgeous cover!
Right I’m going to love you and leave you as need to proof read a certain book! (you’ll hear all about it in a future post!)
Have you ever heard of Rachel M Storm? I hadn’t either until a author friend of mine asked if I would like to read and review the book. Well of course I jumped at the chance as I love to discover new authors (and share them with you lot!).
Forbidden Affections is about Claudia who spends her life tracking and killing all the vampires she can find while she tracks down the King of the Vampires. And about Jake, Prince of the Vampires, who has been tasked with killing the vampire hunter.
With secrets at play and love blossoming what will happen with the pair?
I really enjoyed this book and I loved the twist on how you can kill a vampire (want to know it? go read it!) there are sex scenes in the book but not the type that make you cringe and shudder (which I must say makes a change from some books I’ve read.)
I would highly recommend this to anyone that loves vampires and paranormal romance. Fans of Jennifer L Armentrout’s “Wicked” series are sure to love this. And for just 99p/$1.28/KU you can’t really say no!
So have a read, tell me what you thought and don’t forget to leave a review for her, Remember reviews are the food of authors! Find the links below the awesome cover pic.
Happy Reading, I can’t wait to hear what you all thought about it!
