Could this man be the beginning of her new life? Should she hope? Or should she be ready to suffer more abuse? Is she strong enough to carry out her long ago assigned mission?

This book is one that is difficult to put down. One thing I love the about this author is that the drama keeps coming. There is always some sort of conflict that keeps you wanting to keeps you reading on and on. This book is filled with suspense and mystery with flash of dangerous romance, Anne Stuart has done it again!

Book Review: Consumed by Fire

I recently started reading the Fire series by Anne Stuart.  The first book of the series is Consumed by Fire.  I loved it!  I would call it a romantic thriller.  It keeps you in suspense page after page and is a quick weekend read.  The book draws you in when Evangeline finds herself in the middle of a “hit.”  Of course she doesn’t realize what’s going on and she gets swept away by the charm and sheer good looks of the man involved in the hit.  Next thing she knows, she’s married and has been robbed by her new husband.  Years later she has moved on and thinks her world is safe but man is she wrong!  This book is packed with action and has danger lurking around each corner.  This book will satisfy your romantic side but isn’t all hearts and rainbows.

Second Honeymoon by James Patterson- Book Review

SoSecond_Honeymoon-400px I have recently been on a reading kick and I loved this book!  Second Honeymoon by James Patterson is suspenseful and keeps you on your toes.  There is so much action and adventure.  Plus you have a mystery to solve while reading it.  There are just enough plots going on to keep you entertained, while not so many that you can’t keep up with all the characters.  I highly suggest reading it.

If you don’t have time to sit down and read, use Audible!  It’s my go to when I can’t be posted up in my reading nook until my heart’s content!  I know audio books can be pricey but some of the memberships really aren’t bad if you would listen to books monthly.

Book Review: the Husband’s Secret

 

the-husband-secret

The Husband’s Secret is a great read.  It’s suspenseful and before you know it you’re thirty chapters in.  This is a fun read.  It all starts with a letter that Cecilia Fitzpatrick stumbles upon while her husband is away on business.  This letter contains her husband’s deep, dark, secret.  The outer envelope is addressed, “For my wife- to be opened only in the event of my death” and feels like it could have been written years and years ago.

From there you’re hooked and are edging her on to rip open the envelope and see what horror may be contained inside.  In the process, you learn about two other women who are having/had life-changing events happen to them.  Secrets are revealed as you read each chapter.  And if this book promises nothing else, you will be thoroughly entertained as you read every single page.  Love affairs, a mysterious murder, and more!

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good, quick read.  Believe me you will fly through this book, because you will need to know what happens next.

Book Review: Shadow Falls Series (must read)

bornatmidnight

I just read the Shadow Falls series and I LOVED it! It consists of 5 books: Born at Midnight, Awake at Dawn, Taken at Dusk, Whispers at Moonrise, and Chosen at Nigthfall.  I may be growing up but I still love young adult fiction. This series reminds me of what would happen if you put Harry Potter and Twilight into a blender and mixed it up. It has super naturals, magic, and a love story. The series is about a girl who learns that she may be more than just your average human. It all begins when she starts seeing a stranger that no one else can see. This forces her mother to put her into therapy which somehow leads her to attending the summer camp, Shadow Falls, for troubled teens. However, upon discovering she may not be human, she is left not knowing what she is or where she belongs.

Shadow Falls Book 3 and 4

The journey of self-discovery that, Kylie Galen, goes through is incredibly honest and captivating. There is a love triangle with a charming fae and buff werewolf, but it does not consume the whole story line. The young lady finds herself in some scary confrontations with evil (evil vampires, evil spirits, even evil animals) where she must find the courage to fight for her life and the lives of others.

Chosen at Night Fall

The tone of this series is very relatable to anyone who reads it. It makes you think of how important friendship is. I must admit that the ending was a little too well wrapped up for me, but it does not change the fact that I will read the series again. Among the super naturals that belong to this series are werewolves, faes, witches, shape shifters, and some other super natural that is truly unique.

When reading this series be prepared to read all 5 books at once. I know I could not wait to see where the next book would take Ms. Galen, in her adventure of becoming a force to be reckoned with.

Overall, I think it is a must read series if you like young adult fiction. What did y’all think of the series? What books do you recommend?
