Blurb/Summary:

Stevie here, and I’m happy to report we’ve settled into our new lives and found a modicum of peace since our last death-defying incident.

Mostly…

My International Man of Mystery continues to lay low here in Ebenezer Falls until we can sort out his earthbound credentials, but we have a routine and as the holiday season begins, we’re ready to do a little celebrating. In the midst of us adjusting to life together, a surprise visitor shows up, knocking us both for a loop, but for two entirely different reasons.

To make matters worse, my good buddy, Officer Rigid…er, Dana Nelson, has some questions and we’re positive they have to do with Win’s involvement in what’s turned out to be a high-profile case in Seattle. That means we need to get the heck out of Dodge and we need to do it fast to buy ourselves some time to figure out our next move.

While we wrap our heads around our newest predicament in Maine in a beautiful little town that celebrates Christmas three hundred and sixty five days a year called Marshmallow Hollow, we run into bigger trouble than we left when someone tries to kill Win not once, but twice.

And that’s when Win’s past comes back to haunt him, putting us all in danger.

Out of the frying pan and into the fire we go!



Review:

Holy Cow!  Witch It Real Good was an adventure and delight to read that I couldn’t put down.  There are so many plot twists and answers in this book that I highly recommend reading the series in order.

Witch It Real Good takes readers on a journey to Marshmallow Hollow.  Stevie and Win are put to the test against unknown threats and Stevie comes through like a champ.  All her mini-spy training is paying off!

There are so many new secrets revealed in this book that all I can say is read it and read it fast!  According to Dakota Cassidy, readers will be taking more adventures in Marshmallow Hollow in 2020.

I highly recommend the Witchless in Seattle series.  It’s fun, the plots keep you guessing, and the characters are delightful.  Dakota Cassidy knows how to spin a tale and get readers to come back for more.

As usual, Renee George did a seriously amazing job on the cover art for Witch It Real Good.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

 Blurb/Summary:

Gan never wanted to be a shifter and now he's got a monster Siberian Tiger inside of him. He's spent his whole life as a prisoner. This is no different. The minute he convinces the happens, Gan plans to vanish and live in a wilderness, leaving shifters behind forever, because he'll have control of the crazy tiger. He gets his chance at freedom by hiding the fact that his animal is still insane. All he has to do is keep his tiger buttoned down long enough to observe on a mission and pay back a debt he owes to a sexy cougar shifter. That might have worked perfectly if Gan's heart hadn't fallen victim to the female running the mission ... and if his tiger hadn't busted loose.

As a cougar shifter, Scarlett spends most of her days rescuing female shifters from predators. She has no intention of calling in the marker Gan owes her until she needs a rogue to help her save an innocent from powerful people she's avoided her whole life. Unlike the other Gallize, an angry Gan has no problem breaking a few rules, and she's seen the true man inside who will protect a vulnerable innocent. She had a sound plan, one that would cost only her if things went bad, until that crazy tiger shifter destroyed any hope of walking away from him. When Gan and Scarlett face impossible odds, each of them must put the one thing they hold most dear on the line to protect the other.

Review:

I loved Scarlett’s sassy inner beast.  Scarlett is serious and sticks to her plans which made, Chica, her cougar that much more comical.  Chica made me laugh out loud several times with her antics.

Gan and his tiger are constantly fighting for supremacy and have no idea how to work together as a team.  Gan spent most of his life as a slave and doesn’t want to be a slave to his beast or anyone else ever again.   

In Scent Of A Mate, Scarlett and Gan must work together to save the ones they love.  Neither one trusts easily, and Gan’s past traumas keep coming out in heartbreaking ways.  Dianna Love is a master at character development.  This book had me crying and laughing.

Each book in the League Of Gallize Shifters can be read as a stand alone, but you will encounter characters from previous books that will entice you to read them all.

I received and ARC for an honest review.

Dakota Cassidy, The Accidental Unicorn (Accidentally Paranormal Series Book 18)

Title:  The Accidental Unicorn (Accidentally Paranormal Series Book 18) 
Author:  Dakota Cassidy
Rating:  Five Siren Stones
Genre:  Paranormal Romance
Keywords:  Unicorn, Goddesses, Werewolf, Demon, Vampire, Zombie, OOPs, Accidental Series
Page Count:  258                
ISBN E-Book:  Amazon Digital Services, LLC

Reviewer:  Stacey Krug 

 Blurb/Summary:

Oliver Baldwin has a problem.
And it's a big one.
He has a unicorn horn. A unicorn horn that's pink and purple and shoots glitter everywhere.
Everywhere...
But that's not all it does.
So what's a guy who, out of nowhere, has a swirly horn sprout from his head to do?
He calls the ladies of OOPS and in the process gets a bird's eye view of a world he never knew existed.
The good news?
Oliver meets a woman named Vinnie who just might change his mind about never falling in love again.
The bad news?
It's really hard to find the time to get to know someone you think might be the woman of your dreams when you have crazy unicorn hunters hot on your tail, a handful of gods and goddesses who'd like nothing more than to hack your horn off for its special power...
Oh, and the threat of imminent death...

Review:

The Accidental Unicorn has all the OOPs ladies and their entourage helping Oliver deal with the alicorn protruding from his head. This story has meddling mothers and Goddesses causing no end of drama and trouble for the main characters Oliver and Vinnie.

Both Oliver and Vinnie have been burned in their past relationships.  Could this crazy situation with pink and purple glitter bring them together?  Can you form a relationship under stressful circumstances and expect it to last? Read this unique unicorn story and find out!

The story has a great plot that keeps moving. Plenty of action and cussing from Nina, and lots of animals and babies to keep everyone happy. Kudos to Katie Woods for the beautiful and whimsical cover art.

Not sure what’s left to turn accidentally, but I don’t think Dakota Cassidy did Big Foot yet! Can’t wait to find out what she comes up with next.

Title:  Break the Day: A Midnight Breed Novel (Midnight Breed Series)

Blurb/Summary:

After a shocking betrayal nearly killed him and the people he cares about the most, what Breed warrior Rafe wants more than anything is revenge against the insidious brotherhood called Opus Nostrum. But to achieve that goal, he must turn his back on the Order and infiltrate a dangerous gang with ties to Opus. Risking everything to redeem himself and carry out his deep-cover mission, Rafe will let nothing stand in his way--least of all his desire for one of the loyalists he should despise, a mysterious, dark-haired beauty named Devony Winters.
But Devony has secrets of her own to protect, as well as a personal duty she will do anything to fulfill. And as a daywalker passing herself off as human to the gang she's been embedded with for months, the last thing she needs is a dangerous former member of the Order unraveling all her hard work. Her plans depend on keeping Rafe at arm's length, but if she surrenders to the dark need he stirs within her, it will be her heart that pays the ultimate price.

Review:

Every time I pick up a book by Lara Adrian, I know I’m in for a treat.  Break the Day was no different.  Each book in the Midnight Breed Series can be read as a stand-alone book, but there is an underlying evil that permeates throughout each one connecting them.  Each book adds new characters and revisits some old ones moving their objectives forward in the war.

Rafe and Devony are thrown together while Rafe is working undercover.  They end up working together as an amazing team, and their steamy romance is off the charts.  Lara Adrian keeps readers guessing until the end as to how and when Rafe and Devony might be able to be together.  They have so many obstacles to overcome if their relationship is to move forward.

I really enjoyed Rafe and Devony’s journey.  These characters stay with you in your head long after the story is over.  I hope we see them again in future books. 

If you are looking for a full story with a HEA and no cliff-hangers, then give Break the Day a read.
