Well This was an interesting read a fascinating take on the old YA favourite Trope of vampires.
Set in a small backward town Local girl Mercy Brown is a misfit teen who along with her bookworm bestie Amanda is just trying to survive high school unscathed.
Enter misunderstood broody vampire Sebastien; the mysterious pale new boy in town; who genuinely seems to like Mercy for herself, which is actually quite a plus-point in his favour.
Sebastien and his vampire family have arrived in this backwater town with there own secret agenda at play one that Sebastien himself is not fully on board with.
It’s not long after they have settled here that events really start to escalate; soon spiralling out of all control and Mercy, Sebastien and Amanda are left fighting for there very existence.
So this was a short read with some mildly amusing Twilight references.
I did enjoy myself a lot but because this was so brief it was somewhat difficult at times to fully connect with what was going on.
Mercy as a character was fabulous; a real kick-butt feisty female.
Sebastien himself was harder to get a handle on I didn’t really feel we got to know that much about him here; mainly just unimportant surface stuff.
I’m hoping that we will get to connect and dig much deeper with him in part 2.
Some of the characters used here did come across as a tad one-dimensional as well and how this was eventually wrapped up was also a trifle rushed for My taste also and could have done in my opinion with a tad more fleshing out overall.
I just felt this was quite a slow burn story them BAM!!!
everything then just kind of happened at once; really snowballing.
If “Mercy Brown” had been a longer read I think it would have worked out much better in the long run; it just wasn’t lengthy enough to do it the actual justice it deserved.
Saying that I still enjoyed this like a lot and really can’t wait to see what happens in the next instalment.
This was a read that definitely kept me on my toes throughout.
Before I go just want to mention that transcript at the end of this book about “Mercy Brown” being an actual real person; so fascinating; such a nice touch indeed.
Also, the front cover here was so very eye-catching; really loved it.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC copy of “Mercy Brown (Mercy Brown, #1)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.

I really enjoyed this short read like so much; this novella series is really starting to become my all-time guilty pleasure and though these books are extremely short in length they still manage to pack quite the punch.
Surprisingly conveying so much emotion and love while still being hot as hell; quite a feat, in my opinion, considering they are actually novellas and not full-size offerings.
Here we are back with Cam and Gabe, one year into there relationship and the boys are now sharing an actual postcode as they have moved in together.
After treating his lover to a romantic and raunchy weekend away at an exclusive hotel Gabe lets slip those all-important goals changing words “I LOVE YOU”; sending Cam into the mother of all tailspins as he attempts to process his feelings of panic and shock.
Poor Gabe is left cooling his heels as his lover withdraws in classic Cam style; leaving poor Gabe floundering around in the dark.
This story is all about the fallout from these feelings; culminating In Cam’s eventual reaction and plan of action in regards to his lover Gabe.
So “Tokyo Heat” was Hot as Hades; like smoking, And as an added bonus we also get to shoot the breeze with the whole Night Series gang which I absolutely adored; such a lovely touch.
Still loving Ethan the most here; he’s my all-time favourite in this series and his one-liners are bloody fantastic; can’t get enough of him.
But my favourite piece of this story was the ending when everyone is chilling around the bar at Soren; loved this angle particularly, it just really shows everyone in such a human light; making everyone kinda a new friend.
We are also introduced in more depth to one half of Gabe’s boss team and I so sense a story there.
Ultimately this really was an enjoyable read and I really felt this gave some added closure to where we left Gabe and Cam back in “One Night” the first novella in this addictive series.
This is currently Free to borrow in KU, but I do recommend you start at the beginning of this series as you will get much more from this if you do.
I’ve said it in the past I’m not a big fan of Novella series preferring full-length reads; but for this series I have made an actual exception, I just really can’t get enough of these boys.
Really can’t recommend the Night Series enough.
I borrowed “Tokyo Heat” (Nights Series #3) from Kindle Unlimited.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-29/5/18

This is the second instalment in this exciting series and we are plunged right back into the action almost from the beginning here.
This time around we are in the States after Tristan sent Isobel off there to safety; not to worry; it’s not long before he’s hot on her heels as Isobel seems to suffer from a little thing called; NOT FOLLOWING ORDERS!!!
Considering he’s the killer and shes out of her comfort zone I would think she would show a bit more wit if she wants to stay alive; it’s common sense 101 really.
So I rated this and the previous novella the same; but in my opinion, this one has the slight edge for me; I just felt much more of a connection between Isobel and Tristen and I also felt that there was much more going on here in terms of mystery and intrigue to keep my attention.
Tristan is a whole lot warmer this time around as he slowly starts to regain fragments of his past.
This really was a short but packed volume and I really appreciated the finale and its potential for growth.
The only downside for me here is that I’m not a great fan of serial novella’s.
I feel they are too short to hook and invest me in the drama.
I can count on one hand the number of these types of fiction I’ve rated highly, luckily “The Red Ledger” series is one of the better novella serials I’ve experienced; it certainly was packed throughout despite being bitesize.
I’m very intrigued to see where this will go next.
A fab little read.

Release Date-5/4/18

So “The Reaper” Starts where Pretty Killer Leaves off and this was by far my favourite out of the two short novellas.
The action here was ramped right up from the get-go with never a dull moment and we get to spend some more quality time with Rosalina and Tony.
So this time around we concentrate more on the reapers story.
With Rosie discovering there’s much more than she originally realised to her new lover.
Tony is also a great match for Rosie’s sadistic nature ultimately making these too one great power couple.
I also really enjoyed the overall dynamic between these two.
I loved there back and forth banter, it was really refreshing.
There was also one scene in particular here where Tony definitely let his inner Reaper lose and I loved it so much.
It was a fitting and just punishment, Karmas really is a bitch.
Overall I found this to be an enjoyable short read, my only issue here was the overall length.
I would have prefered it to have been longer.
It’s hard to sometimes convey the emotion and intent behind the words when the story is told to quickly.
However, ultimately this was an interesting read that I enjoyed.

I’m going to keep this brief as without giving away the whole plot it’s hard to go into details here.
“Pretty Killer” is a short read that packs a punch.
I did enjoy this but it was really in my opinion just to brief overall to give the subject matter its due.
That really is what let this down how short it was.
So Rosalina is Pretty Killer a girl shaped by her past and life experiences.
Her background has helped mould her into the woman she is today.
Shes also the new heir of the Mexican Mafia after her fathers passing.
A job she has been in training for at least half her life.
In contrast, when she meets Anthony De Los Santos, a major member of the Cuban mafia and her future all rolled into one sparks fly.
Also, A softer side beneath her harsh exterior is slowly revealed as Tony manages to burrow beneath Rosalinas skin.
I really enjoyed the dynamic between this pair it will be interesting to see where it goes.
So I found this to be an enjoyable read that kept me entertained.
This is quick, low angst insta-love with no OW action.
and just so you’re aware this does end on a big cliffhanger.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-3/4/18.

The Gods of Greyfall was a delightful series of three novellas by A.J. Norris.
This was the first thing I’ve read by this author and I found myself pleasantly surprised.
I was fully engaged throughout and it was incredibly easy to get sucked into this vivid new backdrop.
The world created here was explained in an extremely coherent fashion and instead of experiencing barked facts I found that this was very cleverly interwoven into the present story.
This was great as sometimes authors can overcomplicate this process trying to cram everything in far to fast.
The Gods of Greyfall, I found, was so easy to follow along with.
So If I had to pick a favourite couple here, it would have to be Cutler and Jade.
I just felt incredibly connected to these two, their story and the fact that it felt like a love reconnected across aeons kinds moment totally touched a chord with me.
I mean I liked all our guys and gals but there two, well let’s just they gave me that aw!! moment.

cute

The whole mythological feel to this was also a winner with me, with its Egyptian, Bator and demon storyline.
And I also got to say here that I loved the fact that these rock hard warriors were so up and close with there pussies.
(and I’m not talking of the of the female sexual variety here, though they do get up and personal with those too if you know what I mean, wink, wink. )
I just loved that these Demon fighters pets were small cute meowing felines.
It just showed there soft and vulnerable side.

Dave-Franco-dave-franco-19758311-500-264.gif

So having these three interconnecting stories really worked as it compensated for there length.
Giving us a much more in-depth portrayal than you would usually get in a short novella.
These were short insta-love, low-angst paranormal indulgencies that for me kinda worked.
They were really romantic and for me hit that sweet spot.
So lastly I just want to say I’m totally loving the front cover of this, like seriously it’s so
eye-catching and all and if I was choosing this based on its cover it would get the full 10/10 for me.
So Give these a look if you like a bit of PNR I thought they were a great read.

So, Oh My this final instalment of this thrilling psychological mind fuck certainly didn’t disappoint. I think I need some serious help I’m absolutely addicted to this cat and mouse game between the wolf and poor Morgan.

So right, I’m gonna keep this compact and vague as this is one you just have to immerse yourself and drown in.
This series has got to be one of my all-time favourites.
It had the ability to keep me connected to the wolf, Morgan and Reid even between episodes.
I’m sad to finish but also elated to reach the end of the line here.
I was suitably impressed with the intricacies of this plot, it was ingeniously thought out.
This had everything it needed to keep my attention as a reader and really does stand out in an immense sea of fiction.
This is one series that you really need to give a chance too it would be a crime to miss out here.
Morgan, Reid and the wolf I’m super sad to be saying goodbye to you all.
But also so elated to be finally getting some closure.
I will miss you all.

That was absolutley mental
I’m still in shock from that crazy-ass story.
There isn’t really that much I can say about this that the blurb doesn’t but I’m going to try.
Here goes.
SO Ivy and Noah, best friends, kidnapped, drugged and dumped into some sort of sex dungeon.
Creepy-ass female voice wanted them to perform for,
well, who the hell knows?

 photo wtfita1_zpsweohqh5u.gif

This is a short read that packs a lot into its pages.
It’s sick, twisted and like nothing I’ve ever read before.
I’m hoping in the next instalment we get a bit of backstory as I wasn’t a great fan of how this started.
I felt it gave me a slight disconnect with the main characters Ivy and Noah which wouldn’t have entirely been an issue if this was a longer read.
Despite that, I did manage to play catch up and I’m ever so intrigued with what will happen next.
On the edge of my seat here people.

 photo 24293973_zps6pze3dtb.gif

This was well written and the main reason for me rating this three and a half stars, is I’m not quite sure if I’m quite fully invested here yet.
I liked both the main characters and have no idea where this is going but I’m hitching along for the ride anyway.
One final observation before I toddle off.
That was certainly a shit for brain moment near the end Ivy.
Played into her hands there.
DUH!! what were you thinking girly

Oh, My Bloody God!!!
My heart is still pounding like a jack-hammer this series is turning my hair white through sheer fright.
It Just keeps getting better and better the more I read and Just when I think I might have turned a corner and worked it out, it changes directions on me and leaves my scratching my head in confusion.
So yeh I think its safe to say I haven’t got the bloody foggiest.
I’m not usually into these serial type novella’s but I’ve got to admit this one has me totally hooked.
And when I finish one instalment I’m gagging for the next.
And Three Breaths is certainly action-packed.
And Morgan is definitely not going down without a fight, I was cheering her on near the end of this.
Practically shouting you go, girl, stick him where it hurts.
Three Breaths again switches between Morgan, Reid and the Wolf’s viewpoint so you actually feel fully immersed in the whole story.
Poor Reid’s imaging’s of Morgan’s fate was so visual in their descriptions it sent actual chills down my spine.
The Wolf’s hate and Venom, for whatever reason practically froze my veins with its chilling intensity and poor Morgan’s battle for her existence echoed through every turn of the page.
Though this is short the emotion and feeling packed in this is so immense, I was nervously wringing my hands throughout.
So Four Hearts here I come, this tale is just so addictive I feel like I’m on some awful journey that I need to see through to the bitter end.
I just need poor Red/Morgan to catch a break and outwit the Wolf.
Really can’t wait for the next frightful episode.

🌟🌟🌟STARS.
“Battle for love” is a very short prequel, (and I wouldn’t really even class this as novella length) setting the stage and introducing us to the upcoming characters in “War of Hearts”.
Here we get a brief presentation into the events leading us up to Ashlyn’s abduction by Marco.
Joseph has run from his criminal family and is lying low in this bustling college town.
Working as a bartender he spots Ashlyn and becomes captivated by her beauty and innocence.
After rescuing her from unwanted advances Joseph succumbs to his baser needs and despite trying to stay away he finds himself captivated by Ashlyn.
But past events have a way of catching up and it’s not long before best friend Marco shows up in pursuit of Joseph.
So “Battle for love” Is mainly a taste of the main event and as such my rating reflects this fact.
We don’t really get to learn that much about this upcoming trio but what is apparent is that Joseph is holding back his true nature from his Angel,
Ashlyn is entranced and smitten with Joseph and Marco well he’s the dark horse really and in my opinion the most interesting out of the three.
The dark horse who I would be interested in learning more about.
All three Ashlyn, Joseph and Marco come across as very different but also extremely likeable individuals.
Now confession time, the reason I said I would be interested in learning more about Marco, well I already know as I read this backwards,
Holds head in shame,


 photo giphy_zps80sxzqqu.gif

I have a habit of doing this, in my defence, I wasn’t aware of Battle For Love’s existence until I’d started its predecessor.
So I skipped back after the main event out of curiosity.
So that’s it “Battle For Love” is what it is, a brief foray into the “War Of Hearts” world
That sets the scene and draws you in splendidly.
