Vowing Love by Adrienne Giordano is simply icing on a well written cake that is the Steele Ridge series. While you could read this book on its own, it is much better after you read Living Fast first. That is the books where Reid and Brynne meet and fall in love.

In Vowing Love, we get to catch up with Reid and Brynne to see how things are going for their wedding. Of course, when it comes to the Steele family, there is never a dull moment. Danger seems to follow Reid, but luckily he usually knows how to handle it. He is one of my favorite of the series!

Giordano does a fantastic job coming up with a great plot for Vowing Love. The pace of the book was smooth and on point, with nothing forced, but just unfolding so naturally that all I could do was turn pages and hang on for the ride. We are also treated to the ever-present enjoyable dialogue, sarcasm, and watching friends and family come together.

If you are looking for a short, entertaining romantic suspense, give Vowing Love a try. It has just the right amount of romance, drama, and action!

Review: WICKED BITE by Rebecca Zanetti

Wicked Bite by Rebecca Zanetti is the fifth book in the Realm Enforcers series. It’s a paranormal romance with tons of action, subterfuge, sass, passion, and entertaining from start to end!

Nessa is a witch who wants to mate Bear, a grizzly shifter. He hates witches. Well, except his sister. He doesn’t trust them and with good reason. They are sneaky and always up to something. I didn’t think there was any way that these two characters would come together. They just didn’t match for me. The chemistry was iffy. I didn’t like the way Bear treated her. Neither did Nessa. She was awesome though. She stood up to him when no one else did, which threw him off. Isn’t it a good thing when you can’t predict the book? Zanetti did a great job with Bear and Nessa’s story and I loved it!

My favorite part of the story was the relationship between Bear and Nessa but there is so much more to Wicked Bite than that. Someone is manufacturing and distributing a drug that kills witches and humans. Someone has a bounty on Nessa and so much danger lurks around the corner for Nessa that Bear won’t stop until he finds it and destroys it. I couldn’t help but laugh when all the different groups (vampires, demons, witches) show up on his land to help him out. Bear really enjoys his quiet space and only wants his grizzlies there so it was quite fun to watch.

If you are looking for an entertaining paranormal romance, give Wicked Bite a read!

Review: MAN DOWN by Misty Evans

Title: Man Down (Shadow Force International, Spy Division, #3)

Author: Misty Evans

Category: Romantic Suspense

Source: Purchased from Amazon

Review by Amy

I love books about married couples and second chance romance so Man Down by Misty Evans was such a treat for me! And married spies? Yes, please!

Man Down features Aidan and Bree, both former spies and an estranged couple. Bree is trying to convince Aidan to leave her uncle’s spa as head of security to work for Shadow Force International, hoping it will get her back in good graces with her boss. But, that task is proving harder than anticipated. Aidan is working on some other plans of his own and always trying to keep Bree safe in the process.

Man Down went fast for me. I found myself flipping pages and getting caught up in Aidan and Bree’s story, trying to figure out what would happen. I didn’t trust anyone around them. My favorite part was when Bree tried to pull a fast one over on Aidan and he was expecting it. I love how much they could read each other. I loved their chemistry together and sure hope to see more of them in future books.

If you are looking for a romantic suspense story that will have you turning pages, falling in love, and on the edge of your seat, give Man Down a read.

Review: STRIKING EDGE by Kelsey Browning

Title: Striking Edge (The Kingstons, #4)

Striking Edge by Kelsey Browning is a unique and intriguing story that will have you turning pages from beginning to end. As always, Browning writes fantastic characters and an interesting plot that makes you feel as those you are part of the story!

Shep Kingston is asked to guide several celebrities on a mountain trek as part of a reality show. As much as he loves being in nature, he isn’t a fan of people. Joss Wynter is one of the participant’s of the show and is hoping to get her life back after a tragedy has struck and she finds herself under scrutiny from her fans.

As Striking Edge unfolds, there are several twists and turns that are so unpredictable and just when I thought things couldn’t get crazier they did. I wanted the story to end for Shep and Joss quickly. Browning really put them through the ringer!

Mixed in with all the obstacles of what Joss and Shep went through we saw moments of their romance budding and how each of them were healing from their pasts bit by bit. I really enjoyed the honest and raw moments between these two characters. While it wasn’t the smooth romance of many novels I have read, it was Joss and Shep’s individual romance that could only be theirs and that was so cool.

If you are looking for a romantic suspense story that is outside of the ordinary but also captivating give Striking Edge a read.
