Good Book and Characters
Shadow Hunt - Melissa F. Olson

Scarlett is a null who lives in LA with her bargest Shadow. When something happens that turns her world upside down, she leaves town in a panic to figure out what to do. This puts Shadow and her partner Jesse in danger. She get through everything that is happening in order to survive.

This was a pretty decent story. My one complaint is it takes a while to explain things that took place in other books that is important information. I did like Scarlett and the journey she went through. I look forward to reading more from this author.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Cover Reveal - Vanilla & Vice

VANILLA & VICE 

 
Book one of the EMPIRE SEVENS series
 
RELEASING MAY 15TH
 
by Tabatha Vargo & Melissa Andrea
 
 
Genre: Romance, Adult, Contemporary 

VANILLA & VICE 

 

My sick obsession with DOMINATION and SEX had become an addiction, and I was no longer willing to be a slave to it. Now, I'm six months sex free, and I haven't tied a woman up in five. 
 
I've never felt more powerful in my life.
 
Then EDEN VAUGHN got a job at EMPIRE SEVENS and turned my newfound control on its head. She makes me feel weak--testing my restraint--silently begging me to show her how deep my ADDICTION runs. I can't have her sort of TEMPTATION in my casino, and I'll do whatever it takes to get her to quit.
 
I'm into all things DARK and FILTHY, but INNOCENCE is my kryptonite.
 
She's VIRTUOUS and VANILLA, and vanilla is my VICE

Witches of East End (The Beauchamp Family #1) by Melissa de la Cruz
Witches of East End - Melissa de la Cruz

It was hard to put this book down, even to just fold laundry. However, it should be noted that de la Cruz has a particular writing style - very short chapters, heavy on plot, rotating third person POVs (in this case Freya, Ingrid, and Joanne), and for an adult book, very little sex on the page. I was familiar with de la Cruz's writing after reading three books in her YA vampire series (with one of those vampires making a guest appearance in this book), and it suited to the story she was telling in this book.

 

And what a book it was - a mix of lessons from early American history (the Salem witch trials in particular), Norse mythology (yeah, with names like Freya and Ingrid kind of give it away), and straight up paranormal. Joanne, Freya, and Ingrid are witches and mother-daughters that were exiled by The Council and banned from using their gifts. After a few centuries, each woman was tired of keeping herself on the down low and starting using her gifts for the good of others - honest intentions to help people. As they continue to use their powers, equally crazy shit happens and it is up to the women to find the source and stop it. 

 

I just loved this book. The women were intelligent, thoughtful, and worked together while still being themselves and the romantic elements were there, but not the focus of the book. It was a joyride with heart. I am definitely going to continue reading this series. Forewarned: you have to read the series in order because the end of one book sets up the next book. So although the problem the women faced ended at the end of this book, the epilogue dropped a big plot line for book two.

Dead Set (Aspen Falls #2) by Melissa Pearl & Anna Cruise
Dead Set (Aspen Falls #2) - Anna Cruise,Melissa Pearl

Dead Set is the second book in the Aspen Falls series, and we reunite with Lucas, Blaine's friend who is no longer on the Police Force that we met in book one. I like Lucas, but he is a slob where paperwork is concerned. His office makes me cringe, so I was thankful when Alaina got stuck in. They come to an agreement that she will help Lucas if he helps her. Her brother has died, and it has been ruled a suicide. Alaina can't accept that, although that may be her guilt speaking. It seems straightforward to begin with, but it does become apparent that not all is as it seemed. And I really did feel for Noah!

It was nice to see the connection between Lucas and Alaina grow as they worked together to find out the mystery behind Noah's death. It is a slow-burn romance, rather than insta-lust, but I think it works here. After all, if someone is working through the grief of a deceased family member, it would be rather strange to fall straight into bed with the P.I. involved.

This book had no editing or grammatical errors that spoilt my reading, and the storyline was easy to follow, even with all the mystery. We have Blaine and Rosie having small cameos in here, so it was nice to see that things are still going well for them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I hope we will see them in future books so we know how they get along. I would recommend this book.
