Redemption: Part Six by Kate Benson – My Review

Title: Redemption: Part Six *Audiobook*

Author: Kate Benson

Release Date: September 8th 2020

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica

He said he’d never let things go this far, but a taken heart can be a deceptive one.
Adam and Isabella’s romance had completely turned their lives upside down.
The board was coming for them, their stalker waited, the media fueled the fire.
What began as a chance at redemption was always meant to end the same way.
They just never dreamed they’d be fighting for his instead of hers.

Despite her insecurities, Adam kept his promise, remained close to Isabella’s side.
With a heavy loss looming, she knew her options were down to one.
Adam forbade it, but this time she knew she couldn’t obey him.
The day she met him, he’d offered her a chance at redemption.
She’d sacrifice everything, even her own heart, to give him the same.

I was not ready for this series to be over. We’ve been through so much! 

Adam and Isabella’s relationship has been tested many times. The day had come for them to see what fate awaited them. I was a mess! I was rooting for them right from the start. Isabella made some choices that had me saying “Oh no baby, what is you doing?!” Love makes you do crazy things. The soothing and pleasant voice of Mr. Zaba brought the book to life. Oh Miss Benson how you’ve wrecked me! I give this 5 stars.

Sons of Stars by Nia Rose – My Review

Title: Sons of Stars *Audiobook*

Author: Nia Rose

Release Date: April 24th 2020

Genre: Paranormal, Fantasy

Domenic Alderman is a normal 17 year old student who likes to occasionally lift weights. Winter vacation is over, and it’s a week until Domenic’s 18th birthday. At school, nothing special happens, just a new girl named Luna joined his class and she…glows! Quickly, Domenic’s normal world is flipped upside down as he starts to go through some very strange changes.

If being able to run faster than normal and being able to lift weights like they were nothing weren’t strange enough, accidentally turning a potential girlfriend into a sword and battling strange shadow creatures called Tamas might put a kink Domenic’s graduating plans.

Sons of Stars is a fantastic YA fantasy story! Domenic and his friends are typical high school kids. They like to hang out and have fun. When Luna joins his school, weird things start to happen. It’s a crazy ride going forward! I really like the originality of the relic and welder. There is plenty of action scenes and some scenes that will have you tearing up. Ah teenagers. The narrators voice was pleasant which made this book enjoyable to listen to. That was quite an adventure and I am hoping there’s another book coming! I give this 5 stars.

Heir to Kale: Rise of the Temple Gods, Book 1 by K.L.Bone – My Review

Title: Heir to Kale: Rise of the Temple Gods, Book 1 *Audiobook*

Author: K.L. Bone

Release Date: May 4th 2016

Genre: Epic Fantasy

Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you. – Prophesy of the Kalian Twins.

In the land of Kale there lies a delicate balance between the powerful temples and the rulers from an ancient, royal bloodline. The Temples are ruled through combat, determined by a series of tournaments. Of these tournament champions, 60 are chosen to become Defendants, an elite team charged with protecting the realm from all enemies. Selection to this team is considered the highest of honours and leadership of the team is decided only once every 13 years.

Princesses Mariana and Ameria, twin daughters of two such champions, are taken as children to separate, yet equally powerful Temples. Through years of rigorous training both are educated in the arts of combat, swordplay, and the ancient traditions of the Temple Gods. Both eventually obtain the rank of Kalian Champions with the expectation of one day serving upon the coveted Defendant Team.

Then, not long after their 17th birthday, the childless King declares that one of the sisters must succeed him as the future Queen. As the race for the throne begins, the sister’s long standing rivalry intensifies, leading both upon a dangerous path that threatens not only their lives, but the fate of the very kingdom.

Unbeknownst to the twins, this treacherous path to the throne is the elaborate collaboration of an ancient prophecy and two creatures charged by the Gods themselves ensure it comes to pass. As primeval powers awaken, the two sisters must struggle to learn the truth behind the prophesy and search for a way to change their inevitable fate.

Wow….this story blew me away. Fantastic world building! It’s adventurous and action packed and also heart wrenching. Several times throughout the story I was either shouting out loud or I had tears coming down my face. Ah good times. The characters are very well written. I really like Ameria! I just felt myself leaning more towards her. The puppies were a nice touch and totally unexpected! The narrator had a nice voice and I dig her wraith voice! I NEED the next one ASAP!! I am now fully hooked and invested in this series. I give it 5 stars!

Disaster put a lot into perspective.
Isabella thought she’d made her peace with losing everything in the name of love.
There was a piece of her soul that yearned for it to swallow her whole, offer them a means to an end.

Title: Redemption: Part Two (The Vault Book 2) *Audiobook*

Author: Kate Benson

Release Date: April 27th 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

One night.
That was all he was supposed to take from her, but it wasn’t enough.

Isabella invaded his thoughts, fueled his hunger, stroked his dominance.
She threatened to turn Adam’s life completely upside down.
Could he turn away from the only woman he’s ever truly craved?

She was supposed to forget about him, take their secret and bury it deep.
Her lips were sealed, but forgetting the night she shared with Adam? That was a different story.
How could one man feel like such a good and bad idea all at once?
His world was one Isabella knew nothing about, but with one taste, she couldn’t help but crave another.
She should have taken his gift of redemption and ran.
Instead, she was aching to surrender.

The sexiness continues in part two! There are so many things I loved about this book. Isabella is feisty and doesn’t apologize for it. Nothing is rushed concerning a certain topic. LOVED that! So many rush into it and I love that Miss Benson didn’t. As always she brings the heat with those hot scenes between Adam and Isabella. Zachary’s pleasant voice helped bring the story to life! I can’t wait to dive into the next one! I give this 5 stars.
