Escape From Witchwood Hollow by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek

                                                                   Amazon US
                                                                  Rating: 5 Stars

After her parents die in the attack on The Twin Towers, Honoria and her older brother move to the small town of Arnn with her Aunt and Uncle. Moving from New York City to a small farming town is a big change. There, Honoria makes new friends and discovers in a legend that there is hope to being reunited with her parents again. For there is a legend of a witch and the woods called Witchwood Hollow, where they say you can go in but never come out. There is magic in the forest, a spell cast by a witch long ago. Do not enter the woods or she will keep your soul, but for Honoria magic and other details of the legend give her hope that the witch may be able to bring back her parents. In her search she stumbles across secrets and stories she never saw coming, can Honoria figure out what is causing the witches need to trap people or will the town of Arnn be plagued with legends of Witchwood Hollow forever?

I was swept away with this story. Taking place in several different time periods, we flash around between multiple characters as we dive in to each persons circumstances and how they came to know of Witchwood Hollow. All the while following our heroines story in the present tense. Honoria was a lonely girl looking for a way to reunite with the parents she lost. What she got was so much more. This story grips you with an iron fist as we stumble along with Honoria and discover the secrets surrounding the Hollow and it's curse. With a surprise ending I never saw coming this book knocked it out of the park for me. I loved the mystery and intrigue that made up this story till the very end. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone who likes to read YA Fantasy.

Detour and Derailed by Lisa Marie

OK, I'm kind of cheating in this post. It's a double whammy of the Terminal Series by Lisa Marie. Because we are so behind, we're trying to get as much caught up (which unfortunately isn't actually very much) all at once. So, today I bring you TWO reviews for Lisa Marie's new series. 


Oh Landyn Pierce... You and all your soft words, they make me melt and wish I were Siannon (pronounced Shannon). I guess that's what happens when you're the lead singer of a world famous band. You become this man with an ability to woo with words. But to stay such a grounded person in the process? That's awesome. 

Lisa Marie has brought us another amazing read. What I love most about Lisa's books is that I know she's going to make me finish the book in one sitting, and probably in one afternoon. The stories are quick, and provide enough emotional connection with both characters and plot to keep the book in your hands til the very end. 

Just go and get it now. Landyn and Siannon's romance will not disappoint. 


Desmond Charter, what have you done! That's what I said when I finished this book. OK, maybe I cursed... And then promptly cursed this book's author, as well.

Lisa Marie wrote a great book about Desmond Charter, a sexy drummer with a dark and lusty side. And then he meets his match in Lexi. She's as fiery as Des is sexy and loves to play, too. What starts off as a "friends with benefits" sort of thing turns into a whirlwind of unexpected emotion for the pair of them.

If you love a sassy romance and are wanting an easy to read quickie (pun intended!), I suggest picking up this book. It's the second book in a series of standalones so you could read it on it's own, or you could get Detour (book One in the Terminal series) and see what all the fuss is about with the bad boys of Terminal.


Camatic by Serena Kearney


This is a series I was introduced to in the beginning of our blog, and I loved it. Serena has written a dynamic series that is left with the openings for more stories and spin offs (which makes me so very excited!).

A sci-fi romance isn't my typical first choice, but the relationship between Estelle and Reed kept me moving forward. It was the life force of this series. Literally. Estelle's love for everything in her life propels the reader into what would seem impossible to the everyday human, but becomes the complete norm for our main characters.

Go grab this series. Seriously, it's well written, well planned and a nice change of pace with action and adventure mixed with romance. Pneuma, Surge and the final book Camatic.

Since then, we've had the pleasure of watching her craft grow, and been part of several releases. And this one, is one that we are even more excited for! This is a full length novel from Alora, and having had the pleasure of reading the prologue, I just know it's going to be amazing!

So without further ado, the cover reveal for "Forever My Home" by Alora Kate

About The Author:
"I hear voices in my head and I love that it’s totally okay." - Alora Kate

Alora Kate – Pen Name

There are many reasons why she chooses to use a Pen Name. She battled with the idea but in the end, it’s a dedication. Alora Kate is a dedication to someone special who left this world way too soon.

She doesn’t write to get rich, or famous. She does it because she loves it. If only ten people bought her book and loved it, then it was worth her time to write it. She loves to share her crazy world and characters with you.

She is a single mom of a very active 3yrs old. He is her whole world, and life wasn’t complete until he came along. She is also a full-time college student studying photography and graphic design.

Chasing Winter by Alora Kate


This story. Man, this story gutted me. This has got to be one of the most heartfelt portions to these novellas. I loved the whole series, but this one left me in such a good place.

Winter's story. Winter's battle, Chase's battle. Chase is head over heels for Winter. Winter has chosen to turn a blind eye to anyone's advances. She is comfortable in her life, alone. Until Chase finds her one night sitting in the hallway of their building, a complete wreck. Together, they share, they learn and experience. Together, they can fight anything. Right?

I cannot say enough for this series as a whole. It touches on a lot of different 'taboo' topics in society. And it's done in a mature and responsible manner. Chasing Winter was no different. I encourage you to pick up this series as a whole and dive right in! All 5 parts can be read in a day, easily. Making for one sassy beach read.

Absolute Love by Erin Everleigh


How do you handle not knowing where you come from? How do you handle it in the process of losing everything else in your life, and watching the strength you once had crumble around you? In this book, we read exactly how Phoebe handles life and the lemons she’s given, with a little sugar.

I am in ‘absolute love' with this book. Erin Everleigh's debut novel is superbly written, driving you to the end. The characters are so easy to love, mature, intense and as well developed as the story line.

If you love a classic love story, a story that tugs on your heart strings and has you rooting for that HEA, do yourself a favour and go one-click this one! I am eager to read more from Erin in the future!

Power of the Fae (The Mirrored Prophecy #1) by Ariel Marie

                                                                         Amazon US
                                                                 RATING: 4 STARS

Arlina Waldmar is the Princess of the Light Fae, trusted Guardian of the Fae and part Human, When a group of disappearances occurs in the human realm her father sends her to stay with her maternal grandmother; a very powerful witch to investigate. Enter Colin McKenzie all Werewolf, all Alpha. The leader of the Legion, Colin swears off relationships. His position as leader of the Legion would make that too hard. So when he meets Arlina, the two are forced to work together to figure out what is happening his immediate and super strong attraction for her really puts him off. Only Colin's wolf sees his mate in Arlina and the pull is strong. Mix that with a prophecy they discover is about Arlina foretelling her first born to either save or end the world. With Colin refusing to ever mate things are difficult. Leaving us to find out if Arlina can convince Colin they were meant for each other or if evil will triumph and destroy the world.

I really enjoyed this first book in The Mirrored Prophecy series. Arlina is a kick butt heroine and it's always nice to come across a strong female character like her. Colin is your swoon-worthy Alpha male who refuses to fall in love. Silly Alpha. It had consistent action and a really good story line throughout the whole thing. I do believe it is the only book published so far in the series so we are left with a unfinished story, rather than a cliff hanger that makes you want to scream. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series and recommend it to all the paranormal lovers out there.
