Heart and Soul by Tess Black Book One of the Solaria Trilogy

Promising new writer leaves you wanting more.

Sometimes a quick short story is what you are looking for and this one is definitely one not to pass up. I visualized the entire story in my head as I read it. Tess Black definitely left me wanting to learn more about the world she has created. Whats not to love about a gorgeous elf? I can’t wait for the next installment of the Solaria Trilogy.

Wicked Nights by Gena Showalter

Wicked Nights is the first book in Gena Showalter’s new Angels of the Dark Series. A spin off from her Lords of the Underworld series. I immensely enjoyed the LOTU series and was eager to give this series a try.

Zacharel is an intriguing character and it is enjoyable watching him grow emotionally. Anna is Ms. Showalter’s typical heroin, one tough cookie. The road to true love is a bumpy one for Zacharel and Annabelle but I found myself rooting for them.

While this story is about romance, do not expect the same steamy love scenes that LOTU contained. Ms. Showalter begins to paint a steamy picture for you but really leaves it to your imagination. I wouldn’t say it falls under the YA category because sex is a serious no-no there but the scenes here are really tame.

There is humor as well as drama rolled into this story and we get enough glimpses of other Angels to make me want to read about them too. I will definitely be reading her next installment.

Book Review: Last Chance to Run by Dianna Love

I was hooked on this romantic thriller at the first chapter, I could not put this book down, I just had to find out the fate of Angel and Zane. The chemistry between them was sizzling. Angel is a fiesty young woman who has had a lifetime of tragedy at such a young age. Zane is a hunk with a good heart, ready to do whatever it takes to survive. I loved the non stop action of this compelling story. Every page is filled with flying bullets, explosions when you least expect it, stolen treasure, murder, torture, leaving you with the anxiety will they make it out alive? Once again Dianna has thrilled my suspense taste buds with an extra dash of spicy romance.

I’ve read the Belador and Bad Agency series prior to Last Chance to Run and this was a refreshing break from the paranormal romance books that I’ve been reading as of late. I can’t wait to read Dianna’s next book, Nowhere Safe.
