The Phoenix (Spy Girl, #6)The Phoenix by Jillian Dodd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A nail biting rush to another cliffhanger. But what a rush!

The many twists to the plots that the author could think up is simply brilliant. Reading this series is always such a thrill.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Chapter 39 had my heart melting with Ryder’s on-air confession. Lovely, sexy, funny and utterly romantic story of two lonely cynics falling irrevocably for each other.

You don’t expect me to leave Cole’s story alone, do you? Having gotten a resolution to Carter’s future with Emma, of course it’s time to give Cole a happy ending.

Of course more secrets were revealed … a different puzzle piece to the whole mystery of how the feud started. Held me enthralled till the very last page!

Carter Reed 2 (Carter Reed, #2)Carter Reed 2 by Tijan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I simply had to read this after having read Carter Reed in the anthology. Every bit as gripping as the first book, this sequel explained so much and revealed more secrets and layers behind Carter’s actions.

What I like about this is the glimpse into Cole’s character and an idea of the impact he has on Carter and Emma. Liked the way the author resolve the couple’s future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a scorching page turner this brilliant follow up to The Cruel Prince is! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. The one year wait is going to be excruciating.

There are so many hidden layers to Jude and Cardan’s relationship. I wish Ms Balck would pen a novella from Cardan’s POV, especially the month of Jude’s captivity. It would be illuminating to see behind his mask and know his true feelings for Jude.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Couldn’t put this down. All that intrigue, sub plots, story twists and tension between siblings, rivals and family made for an highly entertaining read.

One of the best faerie court high fantasy series I’ve come across. Hands down, one of my best buys this year!

[Review]: Once Upon a Wild Fling by Lauren Blakely

Once Upon a Wild Fling (Heartbreakers, #3)Once Upon a Wild Fling by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is another 5-star hit from Lauren Blakely for me, and my favourite Hart brother romance of the three.

Roxy being single dad rockstar Miles’ friend’s little sister adds an almost taboo/ comedic angle to this friends-to-lovers romance. Being the sucker that I am for second chances, I also liked that Ms Blakely’s characters are slightly older, down-to-earth and use their past life experiences to make positive choices when love comes knocking again.

Ben is a little prince and the glue that made you fall faster for Miles, along with Roxy. Of course, the three couples, the dynamics of their friendship, and their awesome kids combined make such a powerful impact you just can’t help loving all of them in the end.

This series has all the necessary ingredients of a blockbuster winner that I can easily imagine each book being brought to life on the big screen.
