Break; Guarding Her #8 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Brother-Best Friend/Hero/Suspense Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This was my first Anna Brooks novel and I really enjoyed jumping into her world.

While this was a quick read, I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing, the overall plot and all of the characters were highly enjoyable. I’m looking forward to where all of Molly and Brody’s brothers continue to take us in future novels.

Molly is the youngest and the only girl in a family with three older brothers, plus her best friend is the youngest out of five brothers. Molly knows how to find trouble when trouble is to be had. Her entire family worries about her and decides to leave her locked in a jail cell for a night when she’s made one mistake too many.

In walks Brody, pretty much returning to town after a horrible accident and staying with family while he recuperates, and who does he find locked up and needing to be rescued? The one woman he’s never really forgotten.

This adorable meet-cute is actually quite funny and I knew I was hooked not only on this book, but on Anna Brooks from that point forward. What really solidified my new found love for all things Anna Brooks is not only the injected humor, but also the love that both sides of the family showed for Molly and Brody while they worked through their relationship. It squeezed my heart at how supportive they all were. The entire family dynamic is really touching and makes the continued growth of the series something to really look forward to.

Aside from the love that was brewing between Molly and Brody, there is also a suspenseful element to this book. A mystery to solve which made this contemporary romance just that much sweeter.

I was able to read this book as a complete stand alone.

Synopsis:

When I woke up in that hospital bed, I knew my life would never be the same. Returning home broken and unable to do my job anymore, I was lost until she came back into my world.

Though I tried to deny what I was feeling, she made it impossible not to fall for her… and I fell, hard and fast. The problem? I wasn’t the only one who wanted her all to himself. So not only did I have to protect her from a man intent on doing her harm but I also had to tell my brother we were in love with the same woman.

Review – The Rise of Fortune and Fury by Sawyer Bennett

55207519. sy475

The Rise of Fortune and Fury; Chronicles of the Stone Veil #5 
(#5 within a series)

Publication Date: May 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Fantasy/Paranormal/Suspense Romance

Author: Sawyer Bennett

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An explosive ending to this epic series!

It’s been quite a journey to see the progression of how Finley’s grown not only emotionally and physically, but in her magical skills and in her deep love with Carrick. Over the past five books Finley has journeyed to new lands, met new creatures, already battled to save her life and those were nothing compared to what she has to face as Finley’s destiny is finally coming to a close. The prophecy is drawing nearer with a battle to end all battles. Will there be enough time to gather forces to help their cause before doomsday arrives?

Finley and Carrick are soulmates and while we know they have found each other time and time again for hundreds of years, will they continue to do so? Will this time be different?

We get a lot of closure to everything that has happened leading up to this final book, while also leaving a couple doors open making me wonder if interconnected books will be in the future. Finley and the whole gang adventure into new realms and we meet a few new people before it leads up the epic battle. There are more unique twists than I was expecting which made for very exciting reading.

There are so many interlocking pieces that have to be pieced together before the end and Sawyer made the entire puzzle fit masterfully.

Synopsis:

It’s time to meet my destiny.

Kymaris has everything she needs to bring down the veil between Earth and the Underworld. If she’s successful in completing the ritual, Earth will be darkened by evil. Demons will swarm our lands and the human race will be decimated.

It’s up to me to stop her.

My fate is to thwart the prophecy, but I’m not sure what to do. While I may have some gifts, I am still merely a human facing the queen of the Dark Fae who holds unimaginable power.

But I have something she doesn’t. Something she could never comprehend.

I have love.

Deep, abiding love which gives me the strength and courage to face down evil. Family, friends, and unexpected allies, who will stand shoulder to shoulder with me against this enemy. Should I fail, they are prepared to go down with me, but only after we have given our all.

My sacrifice may destroy everything I am. Fate may require my demise. But if that happens, I will leave this realm without regret, knowing that I have loved and been loved in return.

The Rise of Fortune and Fury is book five of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

The Revelation of Light and Dark (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #1)A Discovery of Secrets and Fate (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #2)The Evolution of Fae and Gods (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #3)A Battle of Blood and Stone (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #4)

Blurb

A bet turned into a disaster.
Sebastian Weaver is the star quarterback and the college’s heartthrob.
Rich. Handsome. Bastard.
Everyone’s attention flocked toward him and all the girls dreamed to be with him.
Not me.
At least, not until he made a move on me.
See, I thought I was stronger than Sebastian’s charms.
I thought I could survive being his target.
I thought wrong.
Little did I know that he will make my most twisted fantasies come true.
Fantasies I didn’t know existed…

New Release – Bad Intentions by Ella Frank

Bad Intentions, the first book in the all-new compelling age-gap romance and first book in the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank available now!

My name isn’t Logan Mitchell, but Marcus St. James doesn’t know that…

When I showed up at my roommate’s work party, the last thing I expected was to find a man straight out of my dreams. But when the crowd parted and the fates aligned, there he was, waiting for me. Marcus St. James, president of ENN WorldWide News.

Sexy and powerful, with a stare that could freeze you in place, Marcus was the perfect reward for securing a job at Mitchell & Madison, the best law firm in Chicago. To play with the big fish, however, one must become a big fish, and that’s where my little white lie began.

It was one night. I was never going to see him again, and from the second we spoke, I knew he was interested. It was there in his eyes, the same fire in my veins. It was there in his voice, whenever he said my name.

The only problem? It wasn’t my name, and now I wanted more—much more.

But how can anything good come out of something that started with such bad intentions?

Bad Intentions is the first book in the Intentions Duet.
