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

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: MAN KILLER by Misty Evans

Man Killer by Misty Evans is the second book in the Spies of Shadow Force series. If you like spies and romance, give this series a read. Man Killer features Mick and Cassandra, two unlikely spies. Mick is a SEAL recently rescued from prison by Shadow Force and Cassandra is Shadow Force’s chief operating officer and attorney. Together they are thrown into the world of espionage in order to save the world.

My favorite character of the story was probably Cassie. She is a serious person who wants to do her job well and open up her own law firm. She wants to ignore her attraction to Mick for fear of it messing with her life plan. Luckily her heart guides her on this mission and she can’t help but fall in love with him. Mitch isn’t too shabby either. He isn’t too sure of Beatrice and is skeptical he will ever join her team, but he understands when to step up for his country and for innocent humans around the world.

The best scenes were the ones where Cassie found her confidence and took control of situations whether it was when she was acting as her undercover character or just during the quiet moments with Mick.

Evans always writes great action scenes and the ones in Man Killer are no exception. They had my heart beating rapidly, flipping pages, and wondering how in the world everyone was going to get out alive! So, if you are looking for an entertaining romantic suspense book to read, give Man Killer a try!

Review: DEADLY RESCUE by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann

If you love romantic suspense and babies, give Deadly Rescue by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann a read! Weird combination, right? Well, not for the Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce. Cooper, Celina, Nelson, and Sophie were expecting a weekend of training for the SCVC Taskforce group and relaxation for Sophie, 36 weeks pregnant with twins.

Evans and Manemann wouldn’t let us just enjoy the intimacy between power couple Cooper and Celina or the newish love between Nelson and pregnant Sophie. Nope, they like to throw in a little danger. What happens when a training exercise turns real?

I have enjoyed this series from the beginning and the novellas like Deadly Rescue that are quick reads, still pick a punch and include everything the full length novels do – edge of your seat action, dreamy romance, off the charts chemistry, and a plot that has you wondering what will happen next. I highly recommend Deadly Rescue to any romantic suspense fan!

Review: INCOGNITO by Adrienne Giordano

Incognito by Adrienne Giordano is the sixth book in the Lucie Rizzo series. It can be read as a stand alone but is so much fun when you read it along with the series. Giordano treats us once again to an original mystery, a mob princess, wacky family, supportive but crazy friends, and a dog (of course), and a hot cop!

These books are so much fun. It’s hard to capture all of it in a review, but if you like cozy mysteries, give this one a read. You will fall in love with the series! Incognito kept me turning pages while laughing and having a grand old time with the characters. Giordano does such a spectacular job with the originality of her stories! I enjoy figuring out the mystery along with Lucie and the gang because it makes it much more of an adventure!

Along with the fun story and characters in Incognito, this is probably my favorite book with Tim and Lucie’s romance. Their flirting and quips with one another made me smile. They are such a fun couple and any detective that can put up with a mob boss daughter’s family is a keeper!

If you are looking for an entertaining read with crazy characters, an equally crazy adventure and love and family, give Incognito a read!
