King of Crows by Nia Rose – My Review

Title: King of Crows *Audiobook*

Author: Nia Rose

Release Date: June 22nd 2020

Genre: Fantasy

The Crows are the noble messengers of the gods. But all the gods have left. The world is baring the mark of their neglect. Slowly, the world is decaying. The Crows are all starving and doing anything they can to survive, but how much longer until there is nothing they can do to live through the undeniable end that is heading their way?

Korbinian, the youngest of the Crows, stumbles upon a sick and dying girl Adira. Can his blessing to her be the thing that saves them all? Or, will they remain tethered to a dying world and share its impending doom?

This story was complete and spectacular surprise! A wonderful read! The story was really creative which flowed into the characters. Korbinian was a mystery to me and that made me want to know more. I felt there was more to him and his part in the story. The narrators voice was great in bringing the story to life. I was left with a feeling of hope and wondering if things remained the same….I give this 4 stars.

Redemption: Part Five (The Vault Book 5) by Kate Benson – My Review

Title: Redemption: Part Five (The Vault Book 5) *Audiobook*

Author: Kate Benson

Release Date: June 4th 2020

Genre: Erotica

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.
Her life had become one disaster after another, but one truth would always remain.
She’d never survive losing him.

The moment Isabella came crashing into Adam’s life, something shifted inside him.
With one taste, he knew he’d never be able to live without her.
He’d sworn he’d protect both his empire and the love of his life but saving her could mean losing everything else.
When he’s forced to choose, which would be his redemption?

It’s no secret that I am hooked on Adam and Isabella’s story. What’s not to like? Drama, suspense, and that slow burn between them. Hotness! That ending though…..it’s a good thing I had Zacahry Zaba’s pleasant voice to smooth it over. I am left wanting much more and I think that is exactly Miss Benson’s plan. Nice one. I highly recommend this series! I can’t wait to listen to the next! I need it NOW!! I give this 5 stars!

Redemption: Part 3 by Kate Benson – My Review

Title: Redemption: Part 3 *Audiobook*

Author: Kate Benson

Release Date: January 21st 2020

Genre: Erotica

One night of passion meant to remain a memory, a moment of forbidden bliss, had quickly turned into more.
Isabella wanted something deeper and that was exactly what Adam gave her.
She found herself engulfed in his world of secrets, thrusted into the new reality she begged for.
She lived him, breathed him, craved him.
Would it be enough for Adam? Would it be enough for her?

He swore this was one line he would never cross with her.
Adam vowed their relationship, the one they were never meant to have, would remain untainted by his cravings, his desires … untainted by him.
But Isabella changed everything.
She changed him.
Once she handed him her submission, she scaled every wall he’d ever put up around himself.
Would he be able to shield her from the dark corners of his reality?
Would he be enough to make her stay?

Holy heck! That ending!!! What I really like about this series is how there is some conflict between the two. Nothing is easy especially the agreement and I love that the author added that touch. I love these two!! Those steamy scenes combined with Zachary Zaba’s voice, makes for a guilty pleasure read. All the pleasure and none of the calories! I give this 5 stars.

Redemption: Part Two (The Vault Book 2) by Kate Benson – My Review

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.

Author: Kate Benson

Release Date: December 10th 2019

Genre: Contemporary Romance

After a humiliating breakup, Isabella Baxter’s personal life had taken one hell of a hit.

She took time to lick her wounds, knowing the last thing she needed was another complication. Focusing on her career seemed like a flawless plan, she’d just need to stay off new CEO, Adam Avery’s, radar.

Once they met, there was nowhere else she’d rather be.

Adam Avery was been his father’s best kept dirty secret for more than three decades.

When his uncle appointed him as the unlikely successor to Avery Finance, the media went into a frenzy. For an admitted recluse, it was definitely a challenge. Luckily for Adam, he’d never shied away from those before. He knew he just needed to stay focused, in control, and avoid distractions.

Unfortunately, Isabella Baxter was the one distraction he couldn’t resist.

The cover is HOT!! Ok now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, this book is totally sexy! It’s also much more than that. We have a feisty leading lady and a total alpha. Isabelle is smart and beautiful. I love that she was awkward at times and then pissed off the next. Adam is….Adam. You have to read the book to know more about this man! The narrator’s voice was pleasant and added to the story. I can’t wait to dig into the rest!! It’s a definite guilty pleasure read! I give it 5 stars.

Title: Releasing the Dragon (Flames of Kalleen Book 2)

Author: K.L. Bone

Release Date: October 25th 2018

Genre: Fantasy Romance

~Synopsis~

7,000 years ago, an Amethystine dragon fell in love with a Kalleen princess, and nearly uncovered an unholy truth. As a consequence, to protect the status quo, the Amethystine were banished from the kingdom, their very existence wiped from the epics of history.

***

Plagued by inescapable nightmares, Amelia wonders if the unknown dragon in her dreams, whose boundless fury destroys all she loves, is a glimpse of an ancient past…or uncertain future?

Despite her fears, the newly crowned Dragon Queen must find the courage to face the kingdom’s darkest secrets. Evil truths that those who prefer the old ways, especially the temple’s powerful leaders, will go to any length to keep in eternal shadow.

Standing steadfast by her side, Amelia’s Captain Gwain, and newfound love Conner, strive to assist her. In their quest to forge a new kingdom, one free from oppression of those not blessed with a dragon form, Amelia delves deeper into the temple’s corruption and uncovers the horrors wrought upon her kingdom’s children in the name of control and power. A necessary task, for a better future, but her revelations could spark a civil war between the temples’ devoted followers and those sworn to the royal dragon bloodline.

~My Review~

This is fast becoming a favorite series of mine! Between the story and the narrator’s voice, I am transported into this fantasy world and don’t want to leave. I can picture the dragons and castle. Even the characters. I have mad love for these characters. There’s trouble ahead but Queen Amelia is holding her own. The fight to do what’s right isn’t always easy or clear. That ending though!! I really hope the next one comes out soon! I give this 5 stars.
