Review: WICKED WEDDING by Misty Evans

Wicked Wedding by Misty Evans is pure entertainment. Evans always stretches my imagination in the fantasy world with her deliciously naughty Witches Anonymous series. There are not many other fantasies I enjoy reading, but I absolutely adore these books. I devour them quickly once I get my hands on them.

Amy and Lucifer (Luc for short) are trying to get married. Unfortunately things never go as planned for Amy, who is working on Step 8 of her Witches Anonymous steps. She is trying to be good and not use magic after all. As with other books in the series, we see Amy take charge of making something right and her merry band of friends (i.e., the devil, a few angels, witches, and a Vodun priestess) backing her up. It’s a recipe for a good time!

In Wicked Wedding we are also treated to more fun with baby Azaria (Amy and Luc are expecting!) and her awesome magic that she continues to project while growing as good little angels do in their mother’s womb. It’s quite a treat!

If you are looking for an entertaining read that will sweep you away from reality for a couple of hours, give Wicked Wedding a try. If you haven’t read the series yet, you will want to start right away! If you have read the series so far you won’t want to miss this one!

Review: HELL FOR LEATHER by Julie Ann Walker

As much as I love the BKI books, Hell For Leather by Julie Ann Walker wasn’t my favorite. It started a little slow for me with lots of inner monologue and broody attitude that wasn’t doing it for me. I like Mac and Delilah as people but Mac’s inner conflict with himself and Delilah’s pushiness with him annoyed me a bit.

I love Walker’s books, so I kept reading because I had faith. As the plot thickened I found myself more intrigued. I wanted to know what the terrorists wanted with Uncle Theo. And when the you-know-what really hit the fan I loved how Mac’s walls dropped and he allowed himself to let Delilah in to comfort and protect her. She also let her badass guard down and things clicked for the two. But then when things got better they put those masks on again. Ugh! Of course there is a happy ever after so things ended up fine in the end, but the journey was just rather difficult and painful.

The other BKI boys always make me smile and in Hell For Leather Dagan gets reunited with former CIA coworker Chelsea. They are a treat to watch. Lots of verbal sparring and lust going on with them. They will be exciting to read about in books to come.

If you are looking for a really good romantic suspense series give the BKI books a shot. Each one builds on another but you can read them individually too.

Review: ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE by Jill Shalvis

Whenever I don’t know what I am in the mood to read, I always look to Jill Shalvis and her books. They always enter and never disappoint. Such is the case with Accidentally on Purpose, the third book in her Heartbreaker Bay series. You don’t have to read these books in order as each one stands alone and is connected by characters or friends.

Archer and Elle are tough. Tough individuals and were a little tough for me to fall in love with at first. The way they avoided each other was somewhat annoying yet I couldn’t stop turning the pages and had a difficult time putting the book down. Shalvis’ writing is like that. Even if you are not instantly fond of how the characters are acting you still find yourself immersed in their lives and you just can’t turn away.

As the story played out my heart gave way to Archer and Elle when they both turned a corner on how they were approaching their relationshiop and letting their guards down a bit. Their chemistry was off the charts and they fell into a comfortable rhythm. Not every relationship is the same in real life which makes books more entertaining when you have a couple like this. Their bickering works for them. They like to push each other. They both like control. Shalvis did an excellent job with these two.

The supporting characters in the story are always great and I hope we get more of Joe and Spence in future books! I also adored the tiny bit of suspense this story offered. It was perfect for Archer and Elle’s story.  If you are looking for a sexy, contemporary romance story, give Accidentally on Purpose a read.

Review & Giveaway: DIRTIEST LITTLE SECRET by Skye Jordan

Don’t you just love picking up a book by an author you love and diving into one of their stories? Skye Jordan is an auto-read author for me because I know every story she writes will be filled with emotion, smart characters, and freaking hot sex. Such is the case with Dirtiest Little Secret. So good.

Ava is looking for a good time. She was recently betrayed, feels like she is living in a cage made by her parents, and is just not enjoying her current life. Ready to step outside her carefully erected ivory tower, Ava visits a rough biker bar looking for something. She finds it alright. In the sexy Isaac. She is in for quite an experience with him.

Jordan delivers an engaging story in Dirtiest Little Secret where you find yourself immersed in the characters’ lives and living things out along with them. Not only do Isaac and Ava have explosive chemistry in the bedroom but also outside. They enjoy each others’ company and are a great match for each other intellectually. It’s just too bad that Isaac has to go and mess things up by withholding the fact that he remembers her from his childhood but she has no clue. Tsk, tsk, Isaac. I am siding with Ava on that one.

With all good romance stories, though, there is a happy ever after in Dirtiest Little Secret. This book is a quick read so and I found myself reading it from start to finish in no time at all. It was tough to put down and the pacing just flowed so well. So beware that when you pick it up, you will want to have plenty of time to finish it!

So Many Reads is proud to be a stop along Skye’s Blog Tour! Read on and enter to win a Kindle Fire or Echo Dot! 

Skye’s New York Times bestselling novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because Skye is ultimately a romantic at heart and a happily ever after kinda gal. Skye also writes romantic suspense as Joan Swan, weaving fast paced novels of passion, danger and suspense.

Skye is a California native recently transplanted to the East Coast and living in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington DC with her husband of 25 years. She has two grown daughters in college in Colorado and Oregon. In her free time she loves rowing on the Potomac. She’s always learning, attending courses and seminars in art and history and cooking.

She is his fantasy…

Ava Jennings has spent her life dedicated to her family’s steel business. So when she catches her fiancé engaging in extracurricular activities under his desk with a coworker, Ava fires him on the spot. With her self-esteem at an all-time low, Ava throws caution to the wind and heads to a well-known, wild biker bar. She’s determined to prove she’s capable of the spontaneous, wicked-hot sex her fiancé was searching for outside their relationship. And she finds all that and more in a rugged, edgy motorcycle mechanic, the one man in the bar who eclipses all the others.

He’s her dirtiest little secret…

Isaac Banks doesn’t talk to members of the Steel Warriors motorcycle club about his painful past. All they know is he’s the best bike mechanic in the state, which is exactly how he likes it. Ava doesn’t recognize him as the awkward kid who used to spend Sunday nights at her dinner table with their families, but she’s sure interested in the man she thinks he is now. She’s from the world he left behind, and he knows he should walk away—but it’s impossible to say no to the woman who starred in all his adolescent fantasies. All he wants is one night to get her out of his system. Because there was no way she could live up to his dreams.

But he’s wrong. One night will never be enough.

Review: BORN WILD by Julie Ann Walker

I cannot get enough of the Black Knights Inc, books by Julie Ann Walker! I have read them a bit out of order, but it still works since they each have their own plot. The only downside is that each book sets up the main characters for the next book in the series. It’s ideal to read them in order, but not required. I recently finished Born Wild and loved it as much as the other ones!

In Born Wild we follow Bill and Eve’s story. The two are reunited lovers with a lot of emotional baggage. I wasn’t sure they would get through all of it at first. Interlaced with their love story is a dangerous mystery to solve. Someone wants Eve Edens dead but she has no idea who and since the police are not worried about it, chalking her “accidents” up to just that, she turns to the BKI boys, specifically Bill Reichert.

Walker gives us a page turner in Born Wild with a heart-racing suspense, emotional romance, steamy love scenes, and sexy heroes to the rescue. We also have a prequel of sorts to Mac and Delilah’s story in the next BKI book, Hell For Leather, and that one is going to be interesting given what we saw of the two of them in Born Wild. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

If you are looking for a romantic suspense book to get your heart racing whether it be in the middle of a squall on lake Michigan, a life threatening shoot-out, or in the throes of passion, give Born Wild a read.
