Review: Bridge: Bridge & Sword: Apocalypse by JC Andrijeski 5 of 5 stars

Bridge: Bridge & Sword: Apocalypse Bridge: Bridge & Sword: Apocalypse by JC Andrijeski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Revik has lost everything – his unborn daughter, he got his wife back but they took her mind. So he decides it is time for a final confrontation – he prepares in San Francisco and then everyone moves to New York for the final battle. Can he rescue his child from the Dreng or will he have to kill her to save her from becoming their slave?

OMG – there was so much drama and danger in this book after the events in the previous one it felt like a roller-coaster at times. I felt so desperately SAD for Revik as events unfolded that I just wanted to give him a hug while at the same time I either felt like crying or wanting to kick some butt. There were a lot of descriptions of thoughts and emotions in this book and they were so clear and easy to understand I felt as if I was there living it with them. I can't wait for the next instalment now.

Please note this book needs you to have read the previous books in the series first.

Review: Shamelessly Spellboundby Cassandra Lawson 5 of 5 stars

Shamelessly Spellbound Shamelessly Spellbound by Cassandra Lawson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Trevor Dupree is a warlock and a bit of a player. He moved from witch to witch, being infatuated and convinced she will be the one for him - that is until he met Melina Blackwood - a witch who turned him down and then refused to go anywhere near him. For Melina, ever since she met Trevor she can'r get him out of her head and now she is being begged for another chance (can she resist him again?) However there is a woman who will do anything to get Trevor even if that means she has to kill. Can they both come out of this and find happiness together?

I LOVED this story which is a continuation from the events in the book Sinfully Spellbound (although you could read this stand alone). I loved the way the relationship developed between Melina and Trevor and how the danger from the other woman built. Please be aware there is sexual content in this story. I was thrilled with the ending and am now looking forward to the next story in the series. Well written and everything was clear and easy to understand.

Review: The Rapture of Cain by Thea Atkinson 3 of 5 stars

The Rapture of Cain The Rapture of Cain by Thea Atkinson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cain is immortal and finds himself in a Gothic-style church in a seedy part of New Earth. Even worse Sasha (a hermaphrodite) has been feeding him a drug called godspit and has got him addicted to it. Then the red general makes an entrance and he faces her wrath.

To be honest I had no idea what this was about and who all these people were. It might be good if you have read the books in the Theta Waves series but to read this cold it made very little sense. The writing was good I was just confused with the story.

Review: Appease: Princess and the Pea Retold by Demelza Carlton 5 of 5 stars

Appease: Princess and the Pea Retold Appease: Princess and the Pea Retold by Demelza Carlton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Princess Sativa was betrothed to Prince Reidar as a child so when her father promises her as a prize to any hero who can slay the dragon she decides to take matters into her own hand and set off to find him herself. Can she get over the sea and through all the barriers in her path to find him on her own?

I loved this story based on the Princess and the Pea fairytale. The story was quite charming and well told as the author described the characters, their thoughts, emotions and actions. I enjoyed the bravery of Sativa and the way she came through all of the adventures she encountered as part of her journey to find Reidar. As for his mother all I can say is what a total b*tch who deserved a lot more than she received after some of her stunts. Definitely recommended. You don't have to read the previous books in this series but there is a nice connection between the previous one to this one (Embellish: Brave Little Tailor Retold).

Review: Taken by Magic by Jasmine Walt 5 of 5 stars

Taken by Magic Taken by Magic by Jasmine Walt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The wedding between Sunaya and Iannis is fast approaching but they are both incredibly busy sorting out a conference and the wedding itself when Iannis's family contact him complaining that they had not been consulted. Then a family member takes action and an adventure in Manuc enfolds. Can they get through this situation and get the dream wedding they both deserve.

What a great story to finish series. I loved the different trials and their stories which were all quite different. I loved the wedding and it was wonderful to have so much happiness for the central characters so I can imagine them having a fulfilling and very happy life going forward. Sad for the series to end but it had a fitting ending that you need to read if you have read any of the earlier books so you have closure. Well written and cleverly crafted into a worthy ending. Looking forward to whatever the author writes next.

Review: Dragon's Guard by Eva Chase 5 of 5 stars

Dragon's Guard: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance Dragon's Guard: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance by Eva Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ren Landis goes out on her 21st birthday and ends up being kidnapped. Then it all goes a bit weird when she discovers that shifters actually exist and that she is one too - and that she is the last dragon shifter too. She meets the hot alphas of the 4 shifter groups and she is supposed to mate with them and unite the shifter communities. However she has never shifted, has no idea how to reactivate her powers and there are rogues out for her blood so they can finish what they started years ago.

WOW. Lots of drama, danger, hot guys, passion and action. I loved the concept of the story with her mating with the 4 of them (lucky girl!) and her struggle to understand this new world and finding her powers. Well written and the sex scenes were tastefully written and appropriate to the story. I can't wait to read the next instalment in the story.

** Please note this story contains scenes involving one woman, four men, and some sex.
