This was my favorite book of this series thus far, though not by much, and I definitely recommend them all. This just had a little more oomph and brought out the extra feels to give it that half-star bump to a 5.
Powerful and gripping story of a young man’s life and how he has overcome. Not a romance and not a light read, but touched my heart and has not been forgotten.
Another winner in this series, but seriously, they are all good, so you can’t go wrong with any of them, though I highly recommend you start at the beginning to let the character “family” tree grow so to speak. This one had me a bit more emotional than others, giving it that extra ½ star rating.
Both books rated equally well in this new series that contains some unique world building and memorable characters. Hoping the next installment will make my list next year.
This was a long one, but so worth it! Another unique shifter series opener that isn’t as much about romance as it is about a group of people who end up on a mission. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.
Exciting cop drama mystery/suspense that will keep you glued to the pages from beginning to end. Already have the next one queued up and ready to go and have no doubt it will make next year’s list.
This was my favorite of yet another fabulous series of which I highly recommend all of. This particular story had been building from early on and ended up being one of my favorites and well worth the wait. Can’t go wrong with this writing duo either way.
This fabulous paranormal series was recommended to me, and I was not disappointed. Each one is as good as the next and I am really hoping the next installment is released in 2018. Definitely recommend if you are looking for an interesting and exciting series to sink your teeth into.
High intensity, dark and gritty mafia story that had me on edge from beginning to end. It is told in a unique style that I found to be a nice change of pace. I’m really hoping the next installment is on its way and that it too will make next year’s list.
This series that is loosely intertwined with the Collars & Cuffs series. It can easily be read on its own, though I recommend reading previous book, as well as the C&C series for more background on the characters. This was a great second chance story in more ways than one, with a coming out, acceptance and new beginnings. I am really looking forward to the next installment from this talented author pairing.
This was my favorite so far of this very enjoyable hockey series. I definitely recommend reading them in order to see the build up of the team and timeline of how things have gotten them where they are in each book. First Season just had that little something extra for me that gave it that extra ½ star. Definitely looking forward to the next one, as I’m a big fan of this hockey team, the authors and the characters as well.
