Future At First Sight (Optical Interface Book 1)Future At First Sight by Eri Nelson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A vivid story of a world without colour and a declining population life-span. The heroine is a unique and strong character with a special gift: if humanity is to be saved, then Jayda is its best hope. This is a richly drawn story with a deliciously fluid dialogue. Thoroughly enjoyed the tension, the originality of its plot line, and the dynamic narrative. The ending will leave you eager for the next insta...

Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves, #1)Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lively-paced Fantasy/Romance:

A story of rivalry enters into the early part of the book, as Jacque finds herself caught between the irresistibly attractive Fane, her soul-mate…and the arrogance of another ‘creature’ who is determined to fight for her. There is a powerful bond between her and Fane, and reluctantly she knows she must accept that she is bonded with a werewolf, as crazy as that sounds to her to begin with. But Fane is careful...

One Tiny Secret (Seasons of Deception, #1)One Tiny Secret by T.A. Kunz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Intriguing YA romantic/mystery:

Dani is overly supervised by her father, the local sheriff – making her life a prosaic event where she seems to ‘ache’ for a chance to be rebellious. Her old friend, Janice, is even more stringently imprisoned by her mother. And yet the two manage to sneak to a party…where Dani gets drunk and wakes up in the bed of an old boyfriend. Parker, having returned into her life with a determination to win her back, is r...

The Housewife Assassin's HandbookThe Housewife Assassin's Handbook by Josie Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great rom/com:

Fast-paced funny romantic/mystery, leaning heavily on the mystery element of the story and not too much on the romance. The latter is there - clearly visible - but what keeps you page-turning is the cleverness of the plot as it twists and turns to a great conclusion. Witty dialogue and great characters keep you chuckling throughout.

This romance begins with an instant attraction, followed by some quite gr...

No Attachments (Woodfalls Girls, #1)No Attachments by Tiffany King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A clever romantic-mystery:

Ashton is on the run. Hiding from her father – for reasons that are revealed later in the story – she settles in a quiet little town and engrosses herself into a quiet uneventful life. The only thing that’s a priority for her is to tick off each item on her Bucket List.

The first question posed early on is…why does a young, attractive girl carry a Bucket List? This question followed by why is she hiding, and from wh...

For Nothing (An Upstate New York Mafia Tale #1)For Nothing by Nicholas Denmon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dark and dangerous thriller:

A hard-boiled gritty thriller, vividly describing the Mafia underbelly and the fragile undercover cops that work within it.

The central core of this story is about one such undercover cop seeking revenge against the assassin that killed his best friend. But the environmental surrounding is rich with betrayal, violence, and vengeance.

In addition to Alex Vaughn’s hunt for the infamous killer, Rafael Rontego, the rea...

Follow the StoneFollow the Stone by John Locke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A caravan of comical and tragic characters:

This is a funny adventure of a gunman heading west through pioneer country escorting a group of prostitutes, along with a fine lady of the east – guided by and protected by his strange friend Shrug – a deadly rock thrower and a man who never speaks, unless he has his own motivation.

The setting is the real wild of the west… the story is packed with tragedy, lust, love, clashing cultures, Indians, n...

Fanged Princess (Fanged Princess, #1)Fanged Princess by Elisabeth Wheatley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fast and furious adventure, with a backdrop of family loyalty and an equal measure of family betrayal. Protecting those whom you care about, no matter the cost or risky consequence, is the underlying theme. The story is basically a "high-speed-chase" from state to state as the protagonists fight to outrun the punishment for breaking with what is considered the norm in the world of this colourful vampire suspense.
