Review – Frost and Flame; Gods of War #2 by Gena Showalter

Frost and Flame; Gods of War #2 (Series)
by Gena Showalter (Author)

This review is from: September 9, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

The bestselling author and master at her craft of writing epic fantasy romance novels, Gena Showalter, returns with the second book in the Gods of War series.  I have been waiting for this book for almost a year and Gena did not disappoint.

We are brought back to the beginning of the All War on Earth, back to before it even begins and this time we will see the war through Bane of Adwaeweth’s eyes. We meet him briefly last time and know that he is a feared warrior like the others, but also he is one not to mess with. He doesn’t fight with weapons like the others, we discover why that is in this book. The only thing he has in possession that someone may want, if they were to actually kill him, are goggles that allow him to see the tricks or illusions that the other combatants may play to their advantage, but for Bane, who is sensitive to the light, they allow him to actually not be blinded by the harsh earth sunlight.  We learn that his race is sensitive to light, but not much else, for Bane is a dragon shifter. No wonder he doesn’t need weapons.

You see, when the combatants fight, they fight to the death and when they make a kill they are allowed at that moment to take the others special weapon of choice. Each combatant arrived to the All War with a unique weapon, some are sought out specially because of this, others are sought out because they are an easy kill, each combatant has their own reason for what they do. We also learn that Bane is there purely for revenge.

Many combatants are there as a place of honor for their home and to win another realm for their kingdom, Bane has been sent by his queen commanding it. A queen he cannot disobey under the spell she wields that rules his people and even when he still would have rather suffered death than come to another war under her command, she killed his wife right before him to make sure he won so he could seek vengeance. Yes, everyone is there to win, but Bane can taste that vengeance everyday and with every kill.

During his time on earth, Bane is also tasked with seeking out any Adwaewethian heirs and killing them. His queen does not want to be challenged for the throne. Bane sees this as his one chance to find that heir and actually have get his revenge on the person who killed his wife. If a new queen could take the throne than his people would be free of this evil queen. His quest brings him to Nola Lee.

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Nola Lee has been sick for as long as she can remember. The only relief she finds are in the pills the doctors prescribe, but the side effects come with a huge side of suck. Getting a break from being the sick sister, she and her sister, Vale (from book 1), plan a trip of a lifetime and prepare for almost everything. But when things go sideways and they both end up kidnapped by immortal beings, that isn’t something Nola ever planned for especially when she gets separated from her medication and the withdrawal symptoms begin to set in.

Whoever thinks to plan for that? Nola should have, if she was honest.

She has been having dreams of a golden god for years. A man who refers to her as his princess. Now that’s a wonderful dream, especially with the things he likes to do to her. Never once did Nola ever believe that this dream god would become a reality, but she was poorly mistaken. She also finds that her god has a jealous streak a mile wide and her withdrawal symptoms seem to get better when he’s near her. There is a whole host of weird things that Bane has to answer for, but he’s not exactly the talkative type. She has a lot of unanswered questions for her mysterious man and things only seem to get weirder the more time they spend together, not that she’s complaining.  Keep him close, she feels better, but life doesn’t always work in her best interest.

Bane and Nola each try to fight the irresistible attraction they have towards one another. It’s one that seems to pull them together like magnets whenever they are in close proximity. As Nola discovers more secrets to her ancestry she wants to help Bane, but he has to trust her not to turn on him. Bane isn’t the easiest man to open up and let people in, he hasn’t exactly had the best history with that, but getting closer to Nola is allowing the man, and beast inside him, a chance to see that things don’t always appear as they seem. If they do work together they will have a better chance of achieving their goal and getting what they both desire then if they work separately which could ultimately lead to their death.

I think what I like about Frost and Flame, is that it can be read as a complete standalone if you haven’t read Shadow and Ice. Gena wrote it where you can pick it up and still understand the history of the All Wars, along with a little background of what happened before without giving too much away. The timelines of both books are exactly the same, but (and this is a huge but) the first book I feel was a bigger-broader look at the war and getting to know the overall characters, but it had to be for that storyline. Frost and Flame is a more intimate look at how the war affects a home, a kingdom, their people, and that was important for this overall storyline. So while both stories have points of intersection, they are not alike.

Okay, I know this has been a long review, but…I don’t get to review big, epic books like this very often and I really do love reading them!!

Bane is a character to fall for right out of the gates. The typical big and burly warrior type, yes, but from the very first chapter you meet a very different guy than if you read book one or will meet for most of this book until he really lets his guard down. Bane is a husband and someone with feelings which we don’t see because he has to bury those emotions deep. I really felt for Bane right from the very beginning and even though he’s always made out to be this huge, larger than life character, he seems very fragile through Nola’s eyes. I love that about this book. The two of them even each other out perfectly.

So, if you love reading other-worldly, battle-warrior, fantasy/paranormal bada** male and female characters, pheromones through the roof, not the mention epic fight scenes then this book is for you!

New Release – PRAYING FOR RAIN by BB Easton

PFR - RB banner.jpg

BB Easton is a masterful storyteller at her very best with Praying for Rain. It’s a story I’ll remember always and reread often.” — T.M. Frazier, USA Today bestselling author

Praying for Rain, an all-new powerful and emotional love story from BB Easton, is available now!

Praying for Rain ebook cover.jpg

With only three days left until the predicted apocalypse, the small town of Franklin Springs, Georgia, has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, abandoned homes, abandoned businesses, and abandoned people. People like Rainbow Williams.

Rain isn’t afraid of dying. In fact, she’s looking forward to it. If she can just outrun her pain until April 23, she’ll never have to feel it at all.

Wes Parker has survived every horrible thing this life has thrown at him with nothing more than his resourcefulness and disarming good looks. Why should the end of the world be any different? All he needs are some basic supplies, shelter, and a sucker willing to help him out, which is exactly what he finds when he returns to his hometown of Franklin Springs.

As society crumbles, dangers mount, and secrets refuse to stay buried, two lost souls are thrust together in a twist of fate—one who will do anything to survive and one who can’t wait to die.

Perhaps, together, they can learn how to live.

Before their time runs out.

Review – Praying for Rain by BB Easton

Praying for Rain (Series)
by B.B. Easton (Author)

This review is from: April 6, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Words…all the words…AMAZING! Thought provoking. Sexy and raw, on the edge of your seat page turning suspenseful and heartbreaking. The world B.B. Easton has created is like nothing you’ve ever read and you’ll be salivating for more when you finish.

With no chance of survival, the apocalypse looming, would you be a lifer and cling to hope, or would you give in to despair and give up?

B.B. Easton takes us on a journey into a world filled with chaos, disorder and lawlessness where everyone is waiting for the final days before the apocalypse happens on April 23rd. The day when the four horsemen of the apocalypse appear and wipe out humanity. No one knows exactly how it will happen, just the date, and you’ve either learned to embrace the fate of the world, or perhaps fight against it.

B.B.’s writing is rich and detailed. She takes you into a broken world where you have to fight for survival, are on the brink of starvation, and so many people have given up hope. The dreams people experience are so vivid, you feel the horsemen breathing down your neck as you read. I’m so excited to continue the series and see where B.B. takes us next.

Rainbow “Rain” Williams is done. She wants out. There is nothing left but pain, misery and loneliness. Death has to be better than whatever life she is living. There are only three more days until the end and April 23rd can’t arrive fast enough. Then Wes arrives in her world and for the first time Rain, even with death knocking on her door, she has something to smile about.

Wesson “Wes” Parker has a different plan. Supplies, shelter, self-defense. Rain has the resources he needs to achieve his goals and he’ll take advantage of her for as long as he can. Rain’s flighty nature almost gets him killed a few times, but there is something about her that continually calls him back, even against his better judgement.

Time is running out, the days are getting closer to April 23rd. Wes is doing everything to stick to his plan. Supplies, shelter, self-defense. Rain’s only wants to help, but in the end when the apocalypse happens her only reason for living has become Wes. Will it be enough?

Can they survive what’s coming? Can they survive together?

Winter is one of the best times to sit down, curl up on the couch and read a good book.

Prepare for the New Adult/Second Chance emotional ride in Ruthless King. What if everything you had in your first love could be back, but everything you threw away was a mistake? More importantly, what if everything you ever wanted was built in a world of lies by the very people you should have been able to trust? Confused?? Don’t be. Ruthless King will break your heart over and over, but I promise Maya will mend it before the very last page. 

Ruthless King; The Kings of Rittenhouse #3 

by Maya Hughes

A STANDALONE second chance, enemies to lovers romance.

My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…

We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.

Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again. 

She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her. 

This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

This year started off with so many good reads. The Kiss Thief wrecked me from the get go. I was not prepared for the emotional toil that this book took me on right out of the gate, but at the end of the journey it is still a book I can say was well worth the ride and set me up for a fantastic 2019 reading year.


The Kiss Thief

by L.J. Shen

They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

Paperback 320 pages

Tanner has to be one of the dreamiest hero’s, I want to be real, that I’ve read in a long time.  His old soul mixed with artistic talent, splash in his love of reading and just plain smart brain all wrapped up in a today’s sexy no frills man. Whew…my panties melted off over and over. Tanner may be the youngest Sexton brother, but he is by far my favorite.


Tanner; Sexton Brothers #3

by Lauren Runow and Jeannine Colette

“A kiss was all I needed.”
“Looks like you got what you wished for.”
“Yes. About that…”

I was supposed to find a finely dressed businessman, have a one-night stand and forget about my failed relationship. Instead, I meet Tanner Sexton—a gorgeous man in street clothes, messy hair and the sexiest smile I’ve ever seen.

When my ex shows up at the bar, Tanner notices my panic and kisses me just so the prick can see. Then he takes off, leaving me breathless.

So, I do what any rational person would. I chase after him onto the subway, and embark on a wild night in New York City with a complete stranger.

No matter how much I fight it, this mysterious artist painted his soul onto my skin, and I haven’t been able to forget him. Our romance is one for the ages, but age isn’t the only thing standing in our way..

Lexi Blake is back with the second book in The Forgotten series of Masters and Mercenaries with Lost and Found. This series has been amazing with all the lost boys that Ian Taggart has “adopted”. Now, keep in mind these are grown men and he is keeping them safe because they are being hunted by multiple agencies. The tension is high as the men try to track down information on who they are, while avoiding everyone after them.  It’s as simple as; what they don’t know could get them killed, but what was lost is always found. 


Lost and Found; (Masters and Mercenaries, The Forgotten #2)

by Lexi Blake

Owen Shaw and his “brothers” lost everything, their entire existence erased. Science had robbed he and all the Lost Boys of their memories and their past, but not their future. Hunted by every intelligence agency in the world, they are focused on two goals: find a cure for what was done to them and ensure that the technology that ruined their lives doesn’t get out into the world. Rebecca Walsh might be the key to achieving both. Owen has been studying her closely, living in her building, and he cannot resolve how such a beautiful, giving woman could have helped design the evil process that destroyed his past.

Dr. Rebecca Walsh has dedicated her life to researching the secrets of the mind. Her atmospheric rise in her field was fueled by the horror of watching her mother’s agonizing journey into madness at the hands of a disease with no cure. She vowed to never rest until she finds it. But obsession takes a heavy toll, and when Owen moves into her building she realizes how much of her life she has missed out on. Owen opens her eyes to a whole new world, filled with joy, laughter, and possibly love.

Owen and Rebecca grow closer, unraveling more about each other and the mysteries surrounding her connection to Hope McDonald. As the sinister forces working against the Lost Boys descend on Toronto, secrets long buried are uncovered that could shatter the bonds holding the Lost Boys together and cost Rebecca her life.

I love reading Riley Edwards. Her characters are rich, full of depth and her plot never wavers or leaves me hanging. If anything I’m left wanting more. More of the characters she creates. More of the family she introduces me to. Just more, more, more. Finding Mercy is the 3rd book in the Next Generation series of a world she’s already introduced us to. These are the children from parents we’ve already fallen in love with. Begin reading this series and fall in love with the next generation.


Finding Mercy

by Riley Edwards

“So much emotion it flew off the page and knocked the wind out of me. Finding Mercy was another great story by the absolutely brilliant Riley Edwards.” Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers 

DEA Jason Walker became a widower at Twenty-eight. Two years later he’s still torturing himself with guilt. They’d married young, and she’d been his first love, but her illness changed everything. They’d fought a losing battle and he’d held her to the very end. Now he just wants to be left alone with his misery and memories.

Mercy James is no stranger to grief and loneliness. Her brother’s death of a drug overdose, and her police officer father’s death in the line of duty were the driving forces behind her pursuit of a career in the DEA. In spite of–or maybe because of–her past, Mercy doesn’t believe in feeling sorry for others, or for herself.

When a case brings Jason and Mercy together, and their attraction heats up, can her tough, straightforwardness help Jason learn to live in the light again? He’d lost his first love, but is he ready for a forever love?

How many ways are there to laugh. I I could Google the answer, but instead, let me tell you just a few of the ways I engaged in LOLing my way through The Risk. I snickered, snorted, giggled, unlady-like gwafed, most likely brayed like a donkey, cackled, had bursts of uncontrollable bouts of laughter where I read and reread the same sentences over and over just so I could partake in tears-rolling-down-my-face laughing just to name a few. This book hit my funny bone in all the right spots and that was just the beginning of why I loved this book. Please pick it up and find out for yourself all the ways you can LOL.

The Risk; Briar U #2

by Elle Kennedy

A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes… 

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

Cheryl Brooks is back with another addition to the Cat Star Legacy series. The mystical and magical world of the Zetithian people. I have been a fan of hers for years. It was probably a decade or so ago, I read every book Cheryl Brooks wrote. Can you say I was just a little ecstatic to see them back and she was writing a new spinoff about some of my favorite, sexy alien’s? I cannot wait to find some time to read off of my TBR list!! 

Mystic (Cat Star Legacy #2)

by Cheryl Brooks

Sulaksha Enduran is still reeling from the death of her lover. He died of a mysterious plague—and it’s out of control. Sula is determined to find answers on her own, until an impossibly sexy Zetithian saves her life and joins her quest.

Despite the prescient abilities and power over the wind that enable Zetithian mystic Aidan Banadänsk to rescue Sula from certain death, he couldn’t have predicted her unique effect on him. It shrouds her future in mystery…and fills him with unparalleled desire.

But Sula’s investigation has put her in the crosshairs of a deadly conspiracy. With an entire planet’s population at stake, Sula and Aidan must risk it all to save the planet, the galaxy…and each other.

This winter wouldn’t be complete without a good angsty read.

What He Never Knew; What He Doesn’t Know #3

by Kandi Steiner

I never learn my lesson. 

And I always want what I can’t have.

When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.

I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.

It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.

Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.

Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.

I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.

This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.

This time, I’m staying away.

And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

Review – Haunted Be The Holidays

Haunted Be The Holidays; A Krewe of Hunters Novella (Series)
by Heather Graham (Author)

This review is from: October 27, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥

I love Halloween, romance, and a good mystery so I was really looking forward to reading Heather’s novella. As a seasoned writer I suppose I put a lot of expectations onto Graham writing about a holiday that I love so much, unfortunately I didn’t connect with the book as much as I originally hoped.

I haven’t read the previous Krewe novels and I went into this book hoping I didn’t need to, but if you haven’t read prior books and wish to start reading Graham’s series I would not recommend jumping in with this novella. I struggled not knowing who the characters were and what happened as they mentioned earlier events from prior books I hadn’t read. I now wish I’d read at least the novel of the main characters, Dakota and Brodie, before I’d read this novella, so that would be my advice to you.

Aside from my own struggles, I did enjoy the mystery and plotline of trying to figure out the “who-done-it”. Around the holiday of Halloween, which makes the job of finding a killer harder; hiding a dead body in plain sight, hiding among the throngs of people, and the holiday itself brings out the crazies making for a good story. The clock is ticking and death is on the loose. Will they find the killer before time runs out?
