Bedmates, Nichole Chase
Bedmates: An American Royalty Novel - Nichole Chase

My goodness, this was an interesting read. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.2* rating. This was a fairly fast read but because of sexual content, it's not for the under 18 readers. This story tackled the PTSD problem, so yes there are some sad parts to this. So it showed a little of what might happen in the background of the Whitehouse, which was interesting in some parts. Had just too much erotica for my tastes but overall, it tackled a big problem in our country today.

The Day of the Dead - Nicci French
The Day of the Dead - Nicci French

  Read for the Darkest London square. 

 

Nicci French books are a counter to all those serial killer/women in peril books: there are women in peril, but the women are the protagonists, not some guy coming in to save them. More recent authors in the same vein would be Gillian Flynn and Carol Goodman. I love these sorts of books.

 

The Frieda Klein series is set primarily in London and one of the notable quirks  of Frieda is that she walks when she can't sleep, which is often all night. There's an interesting parallel with Aaronovitch's Peter Grant series, in that both have the rivers of London running through them as a motif. Anyway Frieda spends a lot of time traveling around London, so the category brought it to mind immediately. That, and the books have a very dark side. But I love them because they also have a great warmth to them. Frieda is a therapist who ends up helping the police with their inquiries when one of her patients is murdered and over the next decade she is involved in other cases in various ways. Anyway, Frieda is a naturally solitary and intensely private one, but she is also very kind, consequently she has a large circle of friends and relations who care deeply for her, and get all up in her business. So despite having dark and brutal crimes, there is this woman on her own in a charming and snug little house, and the varied people who exasperate her with their drama but whom she remains helpful and available for. There is a balance between the two poles of alone and attached that pleases me and soothes me.

 

This book was a truly satisfying conclusion to the series. There's no attempt to tie up all tje loose ends, but there's quite a bit of resolution. 

 

Highly recommended, and good for Suspence, Terrifying Women, maybe Modern Noir, Murder Most Foul, Amateur Sleuth, and arguably Slasher Stories. The first Frieda Klein novel , Blue Monday, is also the 13th Nicci French novel.

Review! Crawley Creek Volume Three (Crawley Creek 5-7) Lori King!
Crawley Creek Volume Three - Lori King

 

 

 

 

 

Crawley Creek 5,6,7
Handcuffed by Destiny, The Lawman’s Lover, Paw Prints on Her Heart


Crawley Creek Ranch Volume 3


A family of misfit foster brothers is intent on building a legacy they can someday leave behind. They want respect, a sense of belonging, and…love? Follow these rough, raw, romantic North Dakota cowboys as they each meet their match and learn that family is more than blood, and love is worth the effort.

_____________________________
Handcuffed by Destiny


A broken woman.
A man of honor.
And a mountain to climb.
They say that love conquers all, but can it also overcome the horrors of PTSD? Destiny isn’t sure she can let Bran in, but she can’t seem to let him go. Will Bran walk away knowing he can never know her completely, or is he handcuffed to his own destiny?

 

The Lawman’s Lover

 

A divorcee whose broken dreams are buried so deep she can’t remember where she put them.


A Deputy Sheriff with a mountain of responsibilities weighing him down.
A fling. No strings attached. No plans for the future.
Until someone’s heart gets broken.
Find out how Deputy Colby Bricker and waitress Elizabeth Newcomer take their shared past and build a new future, in this sister story to the Crawley Creek Ranch Series.

 

Paw Prints on Her Heart

 

She was wounded by war, and he was wounded by a bad marriage. Two people with too many problems to open their hearts, but fate won’t take no for an answer.

 


The fifth book in the Crawley Creek series is a gripping read that easily draws readers in keeps glued to the pages with an emotionally turbulent romance. Destiny and Bran are two strong, compelling characters that encourage empathy and understanding in readers as they become caught up in the couple’s story.

 

Next, The Lawman’s Lover is a delightful read with two charismatic characters that easily draw readers into their story while they take their shared past and build a new future despite the emotional turmoil of the past.

 

Then in Paw Prints On Her Heart readers can’t help but enjoy Payton and Luke story as they fight Payton’s emotional issues as well Luke’s family issues in order to reach for the happily ever after.

 

All three of these Crawley Creek romances are gripping, emotional romances that capture the reader’s heart as the heroes and heroines have to fight for their happily ever after, they are all fast paced with a smooth flow that keeps readers following along until they have read all three stories. Some of the subjects may be a bit touchy, but for the most part the romances are quite inspiring as they show courage to take a step forward and reach for those HEAs. There is an overall plot that suspense and excitement to the story as some mysterious enemy attacks the ranch and its inhabitants, so while each of the romances are standalone, it is best to read these stories in sequential order so that readers can get the most of their reading experience.

 

Although, I wish that the stories were longer, I completely enjoy each and every visit I make to the Crawley Creek ranch and the wonderful characters that make their home there and I can’t wait until my next visit.

Best-selling author, Lori King, is also a full-time wife and mother of three boys. Although she rarely has time to just enjoy feminine pursuits; at heart she is a hopeless romantic. She spends her days dreaming up Alpha men, and her nights telling their stories. An admitted TV and book junkie, she can be found relaxing with a steamy story, or binging in an entire season of some show online. She gives her parents all the credit for her unique sense of humor and acceptance of all forms of love. There are no two loves alike, but you can love more than one with your whole heart.


With the motto: Live, Laugh, and Love like today is your only chance, she will continue to write as long as you continue to read. Thank you for taking the time to indulge in a good Happily Ever After with her.

Review: “The Flesh Cartel #19: Promise (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation)” (The Flesh Cartel, #19) by Rachel Haimowitz & Heidi Belleau
The Flesh Cartel #19: Promise (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

  

Please note that this is my rating for the entire series!

 

This 19-book novella series felt more like a long book that's been divided into 19 chapters, and it feels kinda weird to rate each chapter of a book individually (and it also couldn't possibly do the whole story justice this way).

 

But if I HAD to rate this instalment on its own, my rating would be:

 

 

 

~ 4 stars ~
