Synopsis


There’s something about the scent of blood from the undead.


In the heat of battle, hybrid Ava López discovers she has new and fascinating powers, but she does not know how to control them. Though her former enemies have offered her refuge and helped her acclimate to the vampire lifestyle, even they don’t understand her enhanced magic.


With mounting threats from Ava’s former coven and reckless rogue vampires, Ava and her new friends have no choice but to request the wisdom of Holland Taylor to help her understand her powers. Holland is one of the most powerful witches Ava has ever met, and he is also Jeremiah’s ex, which introduces another wrinkle.


Tension between the vampires and Ava’s former coven is building, and when the witches offer a deal Ava would be remiss to reject, she is forced to choose between the life she once considered safe and the life she never wanted.

Book Review – Waiting For Milo by Angel Devlin.

Book Review – Waiting For Milo by Angel Devlin.

Blurb:

“He called her Rapunzel.

Now she’s back in a tower of her own making.

Can he rescue his princess and live happily ever after?

After purchasing her nan’s old home, Violet Blake wonders if the mysterious Waite family still live in the house across the garden. But there are bigger things to worry about—like how she’s going to get the hole in the ceiling repaired and the neglected house modernised. Lucky for her, the Waite family do turn out to be her neighbours and run a property renovation business.

Enter Milo Waite.

Caveman. Protector. Stubborn as hell.

He won’t take no for an answer and sets about making sure his princess has her castle. But repairing the house isn’t his only project. He wants Violet.

Real life isn’t a fairy tale though, and buried family secrets threaten not only their budding relationship but to tear their families apart.”

Review:

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this book! It’s one of those romance books that is perfect for taking on holiday to read in the sun whilst lazing by the pool or on the beach! It was so easy to get into that I finished it in just over a day, reading whenever I got a spare moment.

It was wonderfully written. The characters were all lovable making you want to get to know each and every one of them. But Milo Waite… Milo is my new book boyfriend! Oh he’s so dreamy! Everything you’d want in a boyfriend. He absolutely worships Violet and wants the best for her. Oh sure he’s a Neanderthal, as Violet would say, but she’s not afraid to put him in his place and point out when he’s being an idiot and overreacting. I loved seeing their romance blossom. Although a couple of obstacles were thrown their way and I wasn’t sure if they’d overcome them!

The book ends on such a cliffhanger! Oh my god! I was so shocked! I absolutely need to know what happens next!! Hurry up and release the sequel, Waiting For Cal, Angel Devlin!

Book Review – If We Were Young by Anna Bloom.

🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤 Book Review – If We Were Young by @annabloombooks. 🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤

If We Were Young is wonderfully written with fantastic characters and great character development. I found Ronnie to be so relatable and wondered how I’d be once my own daughter becomes a teenager. I love the way her daughter was portrayed, as well as the moody teen mannerisms. What really resonated with me personally was the fact that Ronnie has social anxiety. She has it so bad that she can’t speak and/or throws up. I love that although this is primarily a romance, Anna touched upon the affects of anxiety and how it can affect us so that those who don’t have it can understand it better and those who do can relate right along with Ronnie and know exactly what she’s going through.

Ronnie and Matthew’s friendship had come to an end one sad night back in uni, then 15 years later they were reunited through a business opportunity. I loved seeing it all unfold before my eyes and found myself frustrated and on edge wondering if Ronnie and Matthew would be able to see past their anger and become friends again, wishing and hoping they’d become much more than that. You learn throughout the story that so many obstacles had been thrown in the way over the years, unbeknownst to them at the time, that had stopped them coming together and it made me feel so sad because their lives could have been sooo different!

This book captured my heart and didn’t want to let go! I have so many feels! I’m incredibly excited that there’s going to be a sequel! I need to know what’s next for Ronnie and Matthew! I’m also still mad at Angela and her selfishness!! Grrr!

This is a second change romance, friends to lovers story (will they/won’t they?) that is so easy to get into you won’t want to put it down!

Book Review – Summer Princess by Sloane Murphy.

Book Review – Summer Princess by Sloane Murphy.

Summer Princess, previously known as A Princess’ Duty, is revised and revamped with an additional 12K words (if memory serves). It was just as engaging as the first time around. That twist at the end! Omg I’d forgot about that twist, though! Oooh the double betrayal is real! I feel more hurt by the second betrayal than I do about the first. The second cut deeeeep! Yeah, you bet I felt it just as much as poor Emilia did!

Emilia, her twin brother, Edimere, and older brother Erion, have been friends with Rowan and Cade for years. Each month, the Summer or Winter fae court hosts a party. It’s not like your normal human party. These parties are brutal and bloody, a time for the fae to embrace their darker side. 19 year old Emilia’s world is turned upside down when her twin brother, Edimere, meets his death after he kills a Summer court villager who, unbeknownst to him, is Rowan’s love and was set up by Rowan and Cade’s father in an effort to show Rowan that the villagers are beneath them.

5 years later Emilia’s life is not what it was. Her parents blame her for the death of her brother and have been and done awful things to her ever since. She seeks love in the form of Oberon, a half fae Hunter, but keeps it secret because no one would approve of her being with a hunter. One day her father finds out and Oberon is captured and sent to the cages. Emilia is told the only way she can save him is to go to the Winter court and win Cade’s hand in marriage, forming a truce between the two courts. Emilia has never forgiven Cade so it’s the last thing she wants to do but she does it in an effort to save Oberon. But can she?

You’re really pulled into this story, feeling all the emotions the characters do, feeling as though you’re right there with them. The twists and turns were fantastic! I loved the character development of Emilia and Cade. Her friendship with Rowan was so precious. The writing is beautiful and really grips you, keeping you reading and not wanting it to end. I can’t wait for book two to be released. I need to know what happens! If you love a dark fantasy read then this one is for you!

The only negative I’d have to comment about is the grammar/spelling mistakes I came across. However, I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review so I’m hoping they will have been smoothed out in the mean time ready for the final copy to be released to the public.

Book Review – Dark Secret by Danielle Rose.

I fell in love with this book straight away! Witches AND vampires?! What’s not to love if you’re a fan of YA paranormal reads? I love how in-depth Danielle went with the witches and their magic lore and I love the spin that she took with the main character, Ava, after a fight with a vampire didn’t quite go to plan. Ava is tasked with protecting her coven and the village of Darkhaven from the vampires but her coven doesn’t trust her ability to sense the darkness that is coming which she tries to prove otherwise. Throughout the book she goes from strength to strength, but not without her flaws and weaknesses, whilst she struggles to adapt to a life she never wanted. There is a hint of romance running through this book which I really enjoyed and am excited to see where it’ll lead in the second book. Danielle’s writing is incredibly detailed and such a delight to read. I really enjoyed that it was written in first person too. This would be the perfect book if you’re just starting out on your YA paranormal journey.

Synopsis

There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.

Seventeen-year-old spirit witch Ava López is the self-appointed guardian of the witches and humans of Darkhaven, an idyllic village nestled between the forest and the sea. Her watch: vicious and bloodthirsty vampires.

Ava is a novice in the eyes of her coven. If she expects to protect them and the secrecy of their powers, she must gain better control of her own. When a full moon ritual goes awry, control may be lost forever, and Ava is exiled from her coven. Forced to seek refuge among the beings she had always sworn herself to hunt, she vows revenge on those who have upended her life.

But the more time Ava spends away from her coven, the more she discovers a startling truth: the witches haven’t been honest with her. Ava’s quest to strip the truth from everything she’s ever known begins with the toughest realization of all—coming to terms with who she has become.

Book Review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May,

Book review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May.

Blurb:

1960’s Somerset is no fun for cousins Polly and Annabelle Williams. Mourning their non-existent love lives, and the mundanity of village life, their only pleasure is baking – until a chance encounter has them magically transported to the bright lights of London… in 2019!

Promised a chance of love, first they must teach the people of the future about the simpler pleasures of life by becoming Cake Fairies. Over the course of a year they set off on a delectable tour of the UK, dropping off cakes in the most unexpected of places and replacing the lure of technology with much sweeter temptations.

But will their philanthropical endeavours lead them to everlasting love? Or will they discover you can’t have your cake and eat it?

My review:

What a book this is! It is so much more than a book about two cake making cousins running their own cake shop in the sixties, who may or may not find love! Sooo much more! For one, there’s time travel!! Which I thought was an awesome part of the book. What really spoke to me, though, was that it tackles the issues of how modern tech, like our phones, affects us today and how most of us just seem glued to our phones instead of engaging with the people and taking in the environment around us. In come Polly and Annabelle with their cake making skills who are sent forward in time to hopefully make people see how important it is to take a step back from their phones and really pay attention to those around them. It really hit home for me because I often think we should spend less time on phones, tablets, PCs etc. and more time with the ones we love! It’s a fabulous read and one I’ll cherish for a long time!

Life update!

Wow, ok, so it’s occurred to me that I haven’t let the bloggersphere know that I’m pregnant again with our second little girl! I blame it on the baby brain! Although I have announced it on social media so if you follow me over there then you may already know!

20 week scan of our baby girl, Mia.

Willow is incredibly excited to be a big sister! I’ve no doubt she’ll be wanting to help out as much as she possibly can. She’s turning 4 this month, can you believe it? I don’t even know where the time has gone! She’s turning in to this beautiful and bright little girl right in front of our eyes! She’s doing incredibly well at nursery and we’re so proud of her!

Today I thought I’d share with you some bump pics! I’m 23 weeks as of yesterday! I’m shocked at how fast this pregnancy is going! I’m so excited to meet baby Mia; I just wish she was here already.

For so long we were adamant that we weren’t having any more babies. My first pregnancy was an emotional rollercoaster with an awful lot of anxiety and I struggled physically, too, with being an amputee on top of the usual difficulties you get with being pregnant (ugh SPD anyone?). I didn’t enjoy being pregnant at all and I felt so guilty about that. I just wanted Willow to be brought to us by a stork or something haha.

When labour day approached I was perfectly fine and excited right up until the point it was time to go to the hospital. I get severe anxiety when it comes to hospitals and operations, so for me it was a pretty traumatic experience, especially as I had to be taken to a second hospital that was better equipped to deliver baby Willow by emergency c-section (I couldn’t get any further than 3cm dilated, my blood pressure was insanely high, Willow’s heart beat incredibly low, and they discovered I had an infection -sepsis). I’m not afraid to admit I was a mess and panicking because I didn’t know what the hell was going on. This time I’m having an elected C-section in the hopes I’ll feel calmer and more prepared about what’s to come. Hmmm I’ll let you know how that one goes lol. But they say it’s more relaxed when you have an elected C-section so fingers crossed. I’ll have a chat with them too about my anxiety and hopefully I can get a hold on that and squish it down so that I can actually enjoy the experience this time. 😊💜

Whenever I’d get asked if I’d wanted any more kids and I said no, explaining my reasons, my friends would always tell me no two pregnancies are the same. So far, they were right! My second pregnancy has been a joy so far – apart from the morning sickness in the first trimester. Although even that was a lot more smooth running than my first pregnancy! Hopefully things will continue to go well!

This time we’ll be doing some things a little differently. When I had Willow I was too shy to breastfeed, always worrying about other people’s feelings. This time I want to give it a go. I just have this overwhelming feeling to breastfeed. Hopefully I can do it for as long as baby Mia needs it. Any advice you have is welcome!

We’re also going to be using re-usable/cloth nappies! It’s shocking how many nappies get thrown away each week and put into landfill! I just can’t bring myself to add to it. If anyone has any recommendations on which cloth nappies to buy then please feel free to comment! I’d love to hear from you.
