Review: Cadence by Lisa Swallow


My review

Series: Ruby Riot #1 (a spin-off from the Blue Phoenix books but the two series can be read separately.)

I really wanted to shake Jax, can’t you see what you have in front of you in Tegan?

Follow the ups and down in a new rock band with focus on Jax and Tegan. You also get a glimpse of the what happens between show.

There is a couple of stories going on at once. Maybe it would be better to read the series “Blue Phoenix” before this book to understand some of the things and people that happens in this book.

I like that Tegan is not afraid to go after what she wants, but sometimes she acts like a brat.

All in all, a good book, with a nice flow and okay characters


Blurb: (from Goodreads)

Tegan Hughes joins Blue Phoenix and Ruby Riot on tour, and drummer Bryn isn’t the only one who notices his little sister isn’t a kid anymore.

Jax Lewis is the guitarist for Ruby Riot and the band are rising to success. He’s hot property and loving every minute of his new found fame. Now, he’s on tour supporting Blue Phoenix and living his rock star life to the full. Until Tegan walks into his world and puts the brakes on.

Tegan Hughes is taking a year out and has her sights set on touring Europe with her big brother’s band. Blue Phoenix drummer, Bryn isn’t happy when his sister arrives unannounced at his hotel in Lisbon, but Tegan isn’t the type of person to take no as an answer.

With her big brother breathing down their necks, Jax and Tegan attempt to keep a handle on their growing attraction but that proves harder than they thought. Jax is used to getting whoever and whatever he wants and after kissing Tegan once, he knows one thing…he wants more.

But Tegan isn’t rock star girlfriend material. She has ambitions of her own and refuses to let anything stand in the way of her plans. And when Jax and Tegan’s relationship becomes public knowledge life becomes a hell of a lot more complicated.

Ruby Riot is a spin-off from the Blue Phoenix books but the two series can be read separately. All the Ruby Riot books are standalone.


Review: Breakers by Kate Bristow


My review

A book with a sweet romance story, right along with passion and a lot of interesting characters to keep you reading all the way to the end of the book. Nice flow and plot.

Eliot seems like a strong person with a great career but her self confidence in her relationships is really low, and her mind wanders and overthink all the time.

Interesting ending.

I received an ARC and I am leaving a voluntary review, but everything I write is my own opinion.

Meet Eliot Shipner…

I know I’m strong enough to ride the swell of one man’s tides, but can I survive the storm of two?

At twenty-nine, my costume design career in Detroit’s film industry is on the rocks – as is my love life. At the height of a Motor City heatwave, a sudden job offer promises to sweep me off to a film shoot on the coast of Maine, but a sizzling one-night stand with my painfully hot long-time crush Boyd Walker leaves me feeling conflicted and wary. Boyd has a secret, and it’s eating me up inside.

Torn by my feelings for Boyd, I’ve arrived in Castor Harbor, Maine, only to find a rising sea ahead of me in the form of hard-bodied local fisherman Bo Travers. He’s hot and he clearly wants me. But Captain Bo has his own past: the ex-Navy SEAL is used to getting what he wants, and by any means necessary. Even though I’m drawn to Bo like a fish on the line, I’m afraid of getting tangled up in his strong arms and checkered past.

As my desire for Bo continues to mount, Boyd keeps resurfacing and now I face the biggest decision of my life: Detroit or Maine? Boyd or Bo?

BREAKERS is a steamy, modern contemporary romance with vivid scenes of sensuality.

BREAKERS is a standalone, full-length novel. No cliffhanger. Guaranteed HEA.

Review: Blue Rose by Lola St. Vil

My review

Series: The Noru #1

Is a book about the children of the guardians who is expected to protect the heaven from demons without the humans gets to know anything about their powers.

Pryor made a choice that made the rest of her team mad. I think if I have read “The guardian series” first it would have been a lot easier to figure out who was who. There is a LOT of people in this book

Pryor has an evil brother, who is trying to take over Hell now that Lucy is dead, and her parents are trapped in The Light with no way of getting to Earth to protect the children.

Will the team put their differences aside and fight this evil? Can they even find Silver and is he really lost to evil? And will they do whatever it takes to save Heaven and Earth, even if it means killing someone they love?

WARNING: This book contains a scene in chapter 12 that is for mature audiences only. Readers can skip this chapter without missing any info vital to the plot.

“After speaking to the other angels on the team, I hang up my cell and sigh. No one’s heard from Aaden in months. This bothers me not only as the leader but as his girl–well if I was his girl–which I’m not.” Great. Now on top of being grounded, I’m sitting here acting girly and needy. Argh!!!

Screw this! I start to head downstairs to plead my case to my parents again, when something out the window catches my eye. I lean in closer to get a good look. What I see astounds me: soundlessly and without hesitation, the humans line up and jump off the roof one at a time…”

Review: Blindsided by Ava Ashley


My review

A sweet and quick read.

I just want to shake Logan (wake the f*ck up and see what is in front of you). I feel sorry for Lennox when his brother makes all the messes that he has fix. Lennox is swoon material.

A book with deception, lies, compassion and love.

This book has a great plot, loveable people (sometimes) and a story that flows.

Sex and spice and cold as ice.

Those are the facts I uncover about football star Lennox Hardy after a long night of martinis and bad choices. Hardly the stuff of tabloid headlines. Everyone knows the Cougars’ star quarterback is a womanizing bad boy whose voicemail is practically set to “no comment.”

What they might not know is that the sex? Kind of disappointing.

Of course, that didn’t stop me from getting knocked up.

But it’s when I confront Lennox and discover that I’d actually slept with his identical twin brother Logan, a rising politician, that my life goes from page twelve news to a gossip columnist’s wet dream.

Lennox is used to cleaning up his brother’s messes, and he barely blinks before he asks me to move in with him and pretend the baby is his, at least until his brother’s election is over. Giving me full access to his elusive, private life and the story that will make my career.

What’s a reporter to do?

But sharing an apartment with a brooding, private man who’s sexy as sin and my raging hormones may not have been the best idea. And when the only investigating I do happens with our clothes off, I know my plan has gone seriously awry…
