A day where did can live in peace and not in fear. The reader is deposited in the soil of Verald and not retrieved until the very end of the story. I usually read books that have romantic elements driving the plot, and I was surprised to see that through this story I have fallen in love with fantasy.
The authors crafted well-developed characters that you will root for in times of despair and mourn the loss when that character is no longer in the fictional world of Verald.
The imagery of the fields and the people's way of life brought this story bursting off the page. Through the story, you saw what they loved, what they valued and the things they were willing to lay their lives down. This book is the most unpredictable fantasy I ever read. When you think you figured out the mystery, you are submerged deep in a labyrinth of deception. I love books that the reader uncover truths through the story instead of being told. The plot was well crafted and supported by the main character and the others. This book has the innocent love element appropriate for the character who is seventeen years old. Even though the events she experiences are way beyond her years I appreciate that the romance matched her age. This story was believable, and I enjoyed every page.
In my opinion, the only growth area for this book is I think the Main character Ryn was a little too trusting. Her experiences made her compliant and submissive, and I did not enjoy that. The young woman I read about was brave and stronger than she ever gave herself credit. On the other hand, if I was a seventeen-year-old girl who was ripped from everything I knew and thrust into a foreign situation with people I know I shouldn't trust I may have been resigned to accept my fate as Ryn partially did. I must admit even though I know that it was reasonable for her to act this way I wanted her to be a little more rebellious.
In conclusion, I enjoyed this book immensely. I am already reading Book 2 Shadow Wings. I am excited to go on this journey of self-discovery with Ryn, and I look forward to new adventures.
Boss is the first book in The Trinity series, it is a romantic suspense with a happily for now ending. There are no cliffhangers in this first installBoss is the first book in The Trinity series, it is a romantic suspense with a happily for now ending. There are no cliffhangers in this first installation of the series by J.L Lora. Boss is a multi-dimensional book with complex characters each with their own demons and motivation. The story is initially centered around Clarissa and Alex but as the story progresses one gets glimpses into the lives of the people who love and protect them.
The setting of each place was immaculately constructed to transport the reader to the place abandoning their reality to the world that was created. Boss is a well-developed at the edge of your seat romantic thriller. The only growth area in this book is the suspense should have been held a little longer. The dialogue was strong and kept the reader informed without being confusing, J.L Lora took a complex plot with multi-layered characters and delivered each scene with ease. Boss was a great read and I look forward to reading more from this author.

The scenes were painted exquisitely on each page, pulling the reader from reality and into a world created by Ms. Darcy. If I had to describe this story in a few words it would be fresh, enticing and electrifying. This is a story told by maiden Kore and then by Persephone the Queen of the Underworld.

Alpha's Temptation by Renee Rose and Lee Savino is an action-packed, moderately paced erotic fantasy that stars a hacker Kylie McDaniel who is due to her dark past must live under another identity to keep danger at bay. She catches the attention of Billionaire Jackson King, CEO with a reputation of keeping to himself. Kylie tries to build a normal life for herself but danger catches up to her just when she feels safe. Alpha's Temptation's has life-like imagery and carefully crafted characters. The imagery in this story showcases the authors’ knowledge of the terrain and places introduced; the devil is in the small details and that made the story credible keeping me engrossed in the world they created. The characters were expertly built showing innocence and flaws clearly depicting the human condition. On my hot meter I would rate this book spicy, attention was spent on a realistic progression of the relationship. This is a sexy read with traces of Bdsm that might make some others uncomfortable, it was subtle and not over the top. The only flaw in this book is the suspense should be held a little longer the problem was resolved too quickly and the ending was cliché. I was given a copy of this book from Netgalley and I was not required to provide a review. This was a great read, and I look forward to reading from these authors again. ...more
