Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖 4 Hearts

Blurb: Since the death of his former partner, Tony Abruzzi, at the hands of mob boss, Vito “The Dragon” Dragonni, Cold Case Detective, Ronan O’Mara, has been a shell of his former self. Other than working his shifts at the police station, Ronan is going through the motions of life. The once vital and active cop is reduced to binge-watching trashy shows on Netflix to cope with his loss.

Psychic, Tennyson Grimm, has a secret he’s been forced by the FBI to keep: Tony Abruzzi is alive. Barely eating or sleeping as he tries to cope with the guilt of keeping the truth from Ronan, Tennyson knows it’s only a matter of time before his friends stop buying the lies he’s telling to explain his restless nights.

When Tony appears to testify at Vito Dragonni’s trial, all hell breaks loose. Accusations fly about who knew Abruzzi was alive and why it was kept a secret from Ronan, who’s been struggling to come to terms with the “death” of a man he considered a brother.

Focusing on keeping their loved ones safe and bringing Dragonni to justice for his crimes once and for all, one question remains: Will Ronan be able to forgive Tennyson for lying about Tony’s death?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Both Ronan and Ten struggle with their emotions throughout this story. They both feel guilt and hopelessness at the situation. As the story progresses we see them pull together and be there for the other in their time of need as well as seeing the other characters in the series make appearances.

It did not have quite the appeal as the other stories in the series to me but it was still an enjoyable read never the less. The final arrival of their bundle of joy was a bonus that added a happy note to the book.

Great read.

Blurb: 1418, Wales: Hunter Conroy, the youngest in a family of powerful demon slayers, is captured by the evil warlock Osian. Young Hunter is given a choice: join forces with his enemy and kill his own family, or be cursed to live through the ages as a stone gargoyle. Once a century, Hunter is released from his prison, and tempted with the chance to build a life for himself. At the end of a decade of freedom, if Hunter does not choose to become one of Osian’s minions, he is again remanded to the cold, lonely rock.

Fast forward six hundred years, and Hunter finds himself in Salem, Massachusetts. He has forged a quiet life, knowing that at the end of this latest cycle, Osian will once again return, and Hunter will decline his offer.

Realizing he’s in love with this cursed man, Walker is willing to risk everything to fight for Hunter.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved this story of Hunter and Walker. Hunter is forced to become a gargoyle after declining to help an evil warlock Osian. Once a century Hunter is free for ten years. Now six hundred years later Hunter finds himself in Salem. He makes quite a few friends with a variety of paranormals. Upon meeting Walker Hunter finds himself hoping.

This was an amazing story. I loved all the characters, the history and the plans. It’s my favorite in the series so far. The crew from Cold Case Psychic was an added bonus. My heart went out to Hunter for all the things he missed out on while trapped.

Fantastic read.

Blurb: Spellbound bartender and Salem State biology major, Luca Pennington, has recently developed a rather disturbing allergy as a result of volunteering for a medical trial in order to supplement his tuition. It seems spending even a second or two in the sunlight causes his skin to blister and burn as if he were being exposed to an open flame. Then there’s this pesky need for AB negative that has him breaking into the school’s medical department late at night to satisfy his odd craving.

Salem Chief of Police, Cisco Jackson, is dealing with budget cuts the only way he knows how, by working double shifts. Getting a call out to the local university on one of these overnight shifts, he finds a sexy young man drinking blood from a medical lab fridge. Not wanting Luca to continue his thieving ways, he makes the young vampire an offer he can’t refuse: Eat me!

When the rookie vampire refuses to feed from the veteran cop in a Meals-On-Wheels-with-benefits exchange, things really start to heat up with Cisco threatening to arrest Luca if he catches him stealing blood again. Luca’s response to the sexy, older cop, “Catch me if you can!”

Are Cisco and Luca fated mates? Or is the blood song that calls to them both a Siren’s Song of destruction?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Interesting story about Cisco and Luca. Especially how Luca became something more than he bargained for. I loved how these men both traversed through the journey in figuring out what happened to Luca and who was responsible.

It’s a great story with twists and turns and the returning characters as well as new ones. Intriguing and well written this book takes the reader on a journey of sorts into a world full of the unknown to some.

Awesome book that captivates you as you delve further in the story. Great read and addition to the series.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Oh my god this story was so good. You have Vance and Sam who are partnered in the Enhanced team. Both men have issues that are similar but yet different. They are on a case of drugs being used with enhanced blood. An undercover mission reveals sinister goings on and it’s up to the team to stop it. Sam sends Vance mixed signals due to his past and his hang up with large guys which is to be expected. Vance is a gentle giant and understanding.

This series just keeps getting better and better the further along it continues. I love how each investigation is well thought out and written. New and old characters are always intertwined with twists and turns that have edge of your seat, nail biting results with action scenes that have you holding your breath awaiting the outcome.

It’s one of my favorite series to date as I simply adore the enhanced in this series. I am so looking forward to reading more especially with the way this story ended.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Cold Case Detective, Ronan O’Mara is stunned to see the breaking news that a well-known mobster he helped to put behind bars, Vito “The Dragon” Dragonni, has been released from prison after his life sentence is overturned on a technicality. When prominent members involved in the original case against The Dragon start turning up dead, Ronan starts to wonder if he’s next.

Psychic, Tennyson Grimm starts having visions of dead men with The Dragon’s signature kill shot: two bullet holes to the forehead. The men in the visions are strangers, but when he learns from an undercover agent that Dragonni has compiled a hit list with Ronan and his ex-partner, Tony, at the top, he fears a day will come when he recognizes the murder victim in his vision.

Tony Abruzzi has been a broken man since the tragic death of his adopted son, Mark. Refusing the offer of protective custody until Dragonni and his hit squad are off the streets, he seems to be daring the mobster to come after him. Despite the fact that they’ve been estranged since the case that cost Tony’s son his life, Ronan decides to stick to his former partner’s side as his personal bodyguard, whether Tony wants his help or not.

Can Ronan and Tony find a way to work together to stop The Dragon before he can cross more names off his hit list or are both detectives dead men walking?

Review: Two me on the outs find a common goal and come together to stop a crime figure they thought was finally behind them. I loved this story.

Intense emotions and scenes culminate in a suspenseful ride into a dangerous situation where Ronan protects his ex partner from the Dragon before the Dragon or his men can eliminate Tony like his son was.

I do not want to give away too much of the story in this review. I love that despite Tony and Ronan’s estrangement these two work together once again. The Dragon and his men are no joke when the bodies start piling up it gets scary quick.

Intense and fast paced this story will have you on the edge of your seat awaiting the outcome.

Great addition.

Blurb: Gael Peterson has spent years hiding behind the enhanced abilities he wears like a mask, even though he is an important, confident member of the FBI’s exclusive H.E.R.O. team. The hurt and betrayal of his mom’s abandonment and his father’s fists are secrets buried deep beneath the ugly scars on his face, and he doesn’t trust Jake, his new, regular human partner, with any of them. In a world where those with special abilities like Gael’s are regarded as freaks and monsters, it won’t be easy for him to rely on Jake to have his back, especially when the abilities of a vulnerable, nonspeaking, enhanced child make that child a murder suspect.

Tempers rise, and loyalties are challenged, and when the serial killer targeting the enhanced finally sets his sights on Gael, not only will Gael have to trust Jake with his secrets, he might have to trust him to save his life.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: Oh my god! I totally lurve the great big strong damaged hero with a super soft heart and the need to be dominated. I now think Gael is my favorite Enhanced World character. Scarred, damaged, big tough man on the outside…..I just want to hug him and squeeze him and make him my own. But alas, we need a good match for Jake. Jake, the ever patient. Victoria has shown us her softer side, her lovey dovey underbelly, and then she throws us into the mire with a serial killer!

As for the love scenes, oh yeah, that big tough guy goes down hard and begs for it, Jake is ready to give him everything he needs. Yeah…let me get some ice water…..

Once again, good mystery, lots of action, a bit of gory goodness, and lots of tears and melty hearts.

I knew it…figured it out in the first few minutes….but the web was well spun anyhow. I enjoyed figuring out how all the pieces fit together for the unsub. I also enjoyed the super ooey-gooey lovable ending to Gael and Jake’s story. I may need to see the dentist now.

I love this entire series, and I am always impressed with Nick J Russ’s narration…..the man has mad skills!

Blurb: No one is more surprised than Cold Case Detective, Ronan O’Mara when he answers his doorbell one night to see members of Salem’s Wiccan community standing on his doorstep with an unbelievable story to tell. According to them, members of their coven are being murdered in a modern-day witch hunt and they want Ronan to look into the matter for them.

Psychic, Tennyson Grimm is skeptical of the witches’ claims. After the initial investigation turns up ordinary deaths in car accidents, house fires, and by suicide, Ten feels that the witches’ suspicions, are just that: suspicions. His sixth sense is not giving him any clues that these are anything but untimely and tragic deaths.

When another witch dies mysteriously, Ronan turns up the heat on the Salem Police Department to investigate and finds himself in an unusual position: in hot water with Fitzgibbon and his husband. Suspended from the Boston Police Department and abandoned by his family and friends, Ronan goes rogue, conducting the investigation on his own.

Uncovering an insidious plot with roots reaching back to the Salem Witch Trials, Ronan must battle a force so evil, it has managed to stay hidden for centuries. Without the power of his badge or the backing of Tennyson, does Ronan have the strength to survive something that hunts in the dead of night?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: After several witches contact him concerning mysterious deaths Ronan takes it upon himself to solve the case. Tennyson does not believe they are murders given the circumstances of the deaths. This causes a rift between Tennyson and Ronan.

I loved the way the story flowed and the history aspect that spanned back to Salem witch era. It was fascinating the way the case evolved and revelations revealed that put the guys in several past lives. It was an amazing journey to read.

The investigation had me on the edge of my seat as the culprit was slowly revealed. I was astonished at how well the story came together in an exciting conclusion that had me on the edge of my seat. Best book in the series in my opinion.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Forever is too long to be alone.

Professor Avery Cook has spent his career researching the mysterious side of New Orleans. Superstitions, legends, and lore—Avery has an academic explanation for all of them….

Until one night when he walks into a bar and his life changes.

In a sea of impossibly beautiful people, Tyson stands out, and he sweeps Avery off his feet with his old-world charm and romanticism. But there’s a darkness in Tyson too, and Avery discovers Tyson is part of a world he thought existed only in books and stories—the paranormal tales he studies at the university.

Tyson’s been lonely for a long time, and he’s falling in love with Avery. But his past is a long one, and it’s full of enemies and danger. The best way to keep Avery safe is to push him away….

ISBN: 978-1-64080-442-5

Product Link: Dreamspinner | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Kiss Me Forever is a book by MJ O’Shea as part of the Dreamspun Beyond line. MJ O’Shea is one of those authors I’m familiar with, I’ve read a handful of books and have at least enjoyed most of them.

The story is about Avery Cook, he’s a college professor and has achieved a lot on the professional front by the time he hits thirty. Avery meets Tyson and Tyson knows that he must have Avery. Tyson is an old world romantic and very lonely. He wants Avery but with danger stalking him he doesn’t want to see Avery harmed and decided (as any male romance hero does) to push him away. The paranormal element of this story is that Avery is human, while Tyson is something. He’s basically immortal, has been around for a number of centuries and has to drink to stay alive/young (essentially a teetotaling version of the philosopher’s stone).

To be perfectly honest, I really struggled with this book.

While I enjoyed it enough to finish the book, I was left feeling, well feeling just meh. The story just didn’t grab me from the start. It’s just that certain aspects of plot felt a little flat and contrived to me (I wasn’t sold on the whole mystery and the villain’s reason for being). Which is weird because this type of book I’m usually all over like white on rice.

All in all, the actual romance is sugary sweet, but the sexual chemistry and tension just wasn’t quite there. Being set in New Orleans is somewhat predictable but I liked the imagery that O’Shea provided with her descriptions. Since I’ve enjoyed MJ O’Shea in the past, ultimately I was left feeling a little disappointed, which I really hate to admit, but hey, this is an honest review.

Finn has no choice but to offer himself as bait for the evil forces kidnapping enhanced children, facing danger he is untrained and unprepared for, and he will have to do it alone.

Does Talon have one last fight in him? Will he slay everyone who wants to destroy Finn and the team, or will he finally discover that to defeat their enemy and the ultimate threat, the biggest battle he has to face is one with himself?

Product Link: Audible US | Audible UK | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: We now have a tighter team with the H.E.R.O’s of the Enhanced World. But as Finn fights to carry his own weight with the team, Talon fights against his own fears and constantly jumps in to protect him. You can imagine where this puts strain on a newly formed relationship.

What I enjoyed about this book the most was seeing Finn develop stronger friendships with other team members. The author gives us a broader picture of not just Talon but Vance, Gael, Sawyer and others.

There’s a mystery, action, detective work, missing kids, and plenty of tension both sexual and emotional between Finn and Talon again. We learn more about different team member’s enhanced abilities and that Talon’s is changing, and he’s uncertain about his own control over it. When the story comes to it’s climax we’ll find out if Talon is truly as strong as Finn believes him to be. Talon will have to learn to give all his trust to the love of his life, his very life depends on it.

Victoria Sue also does sexy-times with flair and plenty of passion. I’m never disappointed, though I could always beg for more.

Nick Russo’s narration is smooth, varied voices for each character, and has great emotional attributes throughout. Did I mention I REALLY like his vocal characterization of Talon. Mmmm-mmmm, good!

If you enjoy the X-Men/Thirds kind of world building you’ll love Five Minutes Longer and the entire Enhanced World series by Victoria Sue! Hold on tight, you’re in for a ride and an all-nighter!

Blurb: Despite having had a rough life, Seth has a big heart. After spending nearly ten years sleeping rough on the streets of New York, he’s managed to get himself freelance work and a place to live. But his new found security is about to be torn apart, as the horrors of his past come back to haunt him in the worst possible way.

Dante was sent to watch over a young Seth when his mother died. As an angel, he had many rules to follow. The most important of which was to never fall in love—especially when it involves a human who is your charge. For the last ten years, Dante has kept his feelings for Seth hidden. That is until the night Seth’s past catches up with him.

When Seth is murdered, their destinies are changed forever. Feelings and emotions come to the surface, but will the rules that govern the afterlife keep Dante and Seth apart for eternity, or will they be able to find their happily ever after together?

**Contains explicit language and scenes**

ISBN: B07FY29XZJ

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Seth is a kind and caring young man who helps the homeless anyway he can. Dante is an angel tasked with looking after Seth. There are rules about not falling for those in your care so Dante keeps feelings to himself. Seth witnessed a murder and caught it on his phone.

The man responsible, the doctor, finds out and kills Seth. Seth has decisions to make after his death about what he should do. I found that interesting as most books dealing with the afterlife do not give the character a choice immediately after death so I was intrigued.

The whole story had my attention from start to finish with characters that made the story enjoyable to read. I am looking forward to the addition in the series and seeing what happens next.

Great read.

Blurb: Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency.

Years later he gets a chance to set up a task force of enhanced to serve in the FBI, but with one proviso: each enhanced must partner with a regular human.

Finn Mayer dreamed of joining the FBI from the time he was fourteen and made every possible sacrifice to make it happen, including living with his selfish mother and bullying, homophobic brother and never having a boyfriend. But his undiagnosed dyslexia stopped his aspirations dead in their tracks. His last chance is to partner with Talon, an enhanced with deadly abilities who doesn’t trust regular humans with their secrets and wants Finn to fail.

Four weeks to prove himself to the team. Four weeks for the team to prove itself to the public. And when another group threatens their success—and their lives—four weeks for them to survive.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: I really wanted to hate Talon. The team got on my nerves and I felt the anxiety Finn carried on his shoulders as he charged bravely into the unknown world of this new enforcement agency, mixing the worlds of the enhanced and regular humans like himself. These tensions are exactly what Victoria Sue wants to build up in us while we read and listen to her beautifully spun story. When those tensions do finally burst, flames erupt, physically and metaphorically. Action packed, all emotions, and sizzling hot sexual encounters build this loose knit team of talented if frustrating hooligans into a functional team of heroes with strong bonds.

Nick Russo’s narration is great. I really like the voice he has for Talon..mmmmmm, so fine! Narration is smooth, varied, and has great emotional attributes throughout.

If you enjoy the X-Men/Thirds kind of world building you’ll love Five Minutes Longer and the entire Enhanced World series by Victoria Sue! Hold on tight, you’re in for a ride and an all-nighter!

Blurb: Cold Case Detective, Ronan O’Mara, has set sail on the honeymoon of his dreams to sunny Bermuda. He’s looking forward to a week of fun in the sun with his husband, Tennyson, but nothing is going as planned. From a fight between Truman and Carson that’s threatening to break up their marriage, to Captain Fitzgibbon’s on-again, off-again lover not showing up to meet the ship, to dealing with his always challenging mother-in-law, to frenemy, Jude Byrne, showing up with a suitcase loaded with sex toys and lube, Ronan has all he can do to stay sane.

Psychic, Tennyson Grimm, is on the ship to work as well as honeymoon. The cruise ship line has hired him to be the “celebrity” on their celebrity cruise. In between private and group readings reuniting family members with those who have crossed over, Ten is running himself ragged attempting to put the pieces of Truman and Carson’s marriage back together and trying to keep Jude from horn-dogging after the ship’s captain, all while trying to squeeze in a few stolen, passionate moments with his husband. He isn’t having much luck.

During the return trip to Boston, Ronan and Tennyson are enjoying a performance of Murder Mystery Night staged by the ship’s crew. When the crewmember playing the murder victim turns up dead for real, Ronan and Tennyson must set “fun in the sun” aside when the ship’s captain allows them to investigate the crime.

Putting the clues together, the Boston detectives corner the cagey killer who takes someone close to them hostage. Can Tennyson and Ronan save the day before they end up dead in the water?.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Ronan and Tennyson are all set for their honeymoon and the whole gang is going. As with most plans things do not go as smooth as they liked to. Problems and miscommunication arise between certain characters that cause tensions as they set sail on a cruise.

I loved how the story was written and showed the struggles that of the characters involved. There is a mystery to solve near the end but most of the book centered around how the characters handled their issues with one another and showed how at times that all was not lost.

Another interesting instalment of the series as the reader tags along for an emotional cruise with the whole crew.

Great read.

Blurb: After the sudden death of his mother, Niall Gallagher buys a run-down Victorian mansion in the town of Salem, Massachusetts. His first challenge is to find a contractor to start the renovation.

Contractor Tobin Woods is just the man for the job. Badly needing to get his life in order, he knows this could be the opportunity of a lifetime if he could sober up enough to make a good impression.

When Niall has a life-threatening encounter with angry spirits trying to scare him off the property, he turns to psychic Tennyson Grimm, who reveals the ghosts were victims of the infamous Salem Witch Trials, who are still looking for revenge.

Will Tennyson be able to move these vengeful spirits peacefully into the light or will the spell woven between Niall and Tobin be broken forever?

Review: Really interesting story about Niall moving to Massachusetts after the death of his mother and buying an old Victorian home. Wanting to do repairs he hires contractor Tobin. The two hit it off instantly but angry spirits quickly make themselves known, which usually happens when you renovate anywhere ghosts are around as they do not like change.

Tennyson and the gang find out the spirits are from the sale witch trials and attempt to get them to move on. I liked the story. It was engaging and I loved reading about what happened to the victims. Humans are cruel when thrown into things they do not understand or go against their beliefs.

Great read.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Gray is hired to protect Sebastian. What starts out as job slowly turns into something more. Sebastian’s enhanced power was stunning to witness. I loved the slow burn between the two as the story progressed.

This story is not as intense as the other stories in the enhanced series but it still packs a punch. Seb is self conscience and reclusive. He doesn’t trust anyone. The experiments he is put through are mind boggling. I admit I felt his dad was extremely unemotional to the wants of Seb.

My heart went out to Seb as he struggled for his independence against family and a system that gives enhanced no rights. Gray was a rock for Seb when he needed it the most.

Great read.

Blurb: Orphaned at a young age and raised in the foster system, Jory Smith has no idea he’s half incubus. He only knows he has the power to heal people, making himself sick in the process. Exploited by a crooked faith healer who sells his abilities and his life to the highest bidder and then left for dead, Jory flees, falling into a job at a small-town café where he can put his lifelong obsession with baking to good use.

But the minister who exploited him wants him back.

Exiled hellhound-turned–bounty hunter Malpheus Pelle has no idea why his human client wants him to track down an incubus. Jory is traumatized and afraid to touch anyone, an emotional handicap that could prove fatal for a demon who requires physical contact. Needing answers, Mal concocts a disastrous plan: pretend to date Jory to uncover the truth. Unfortunately, his plan never included dealing with an ancient demon assassin, Jory’s orgasmic pumpkin cookies, or losing his heart to the incubus he’s supposed to be hunting….

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I liked both Mal and Jory’s characters but found it hard to believe that Jory had no clue that he was something more than human. I mean with his abilities he should have had some idea. Mal’s deception I understood because of the job he took to find Jory and retrieve him.

The overall feeling of the book was good suspense. The ending was the icing on the cake but it felt rushed at times. The bad guy I figured out pretty quickly. I was disappointed with the fact that the story never revealed what happened to Asmodeus. He was never a key character but he was mentioned so much that I wanted to know.

Aside from that I enjoyed reading about Mal, Jory, Neal, louise and the dragon. They were all interesting characters that brought the story to life. Plenty of action scenes added an edge of your seat element to the book.

Great read.

For You I Fall

(Angels & Misfits 01)
by

T.N. Nova and Colette Davison

Sometimes you must fall before you can fly free.

Despite having had a rough life, Seth has a big heart. After spending nearly ten years sleeping rough on the streets of New York, he’s managed to get himself freelance work and a place to live. But his new-found security is about to be torn apart, as the horrors of his past come back to haunt him in the worst possible way.

Dante was sent to watch over a young Seth when his mother died. As an angel, he had many rules to follow. The most important of which was to never fall in love—especially when it involves a human who is your charge. For the last ten years, Dante has kept his feelings for Seth hidden. That is until the night Seth’s past catches up with him.

When Seth is murdered, their destinies are changed forever. Feelings and emotions come to the surface, but will the rules that govern the afterlife keep Dante and Seth apart for eternity, or will they be able to find their happily ever after together?

**Contains explicit language and scenes**
