SUMMONED TO THIRTEENTH GRAVE (CHARLEY DAVIDSON #13)

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series!

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.

She’s missed Reyes and her daughter, Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.

Liza's Review:

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave is the final installment in the Charley Davidson series. I strongly suggest you begin this series with First Grave on the Right and read the books in the series in order to fully understand the world Darynda Jones has built. I'll keep this review spoiler free for this book, but it could include information from other books in the series.

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave picks up at a time after the previous book, where Charley was banished from the earthly plain for breaking the biggest rule set by Jehovah. Charley does return to earth just in time to help solve the issue with the demons trying to take over New Mexico, or possibly the rest of the globe. 

I really don't feel like I can say more about the happenings in the book without giving away spoilers. I will say I felt like Ms. Jones wrapped up many of the character's storylines in a satisfying way. I will say I was totally thrown by a few things that we discovered in Summoned to Thirteenth Grave. I also found myself feeling really emotional with a few of the character wrap-ups. I loved seeing Charley and Reyes back together again, and finally felt like both characters had finally grown up a bit. They communicated much better than in past books and I felt like they both had matured. 

While I felt like Ms. Jones did a really great job with the wrap up of this series, I do feel like the climatic fight scene was a bit too easily won. I'm really hopeful that the rumors of a spinoff with Beep are true and we get to spend time with favorite characters again in the future.

About Avery


USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

EVIDENCE OF DESIRE (COURTING JUSTICE #2)

Isla Shayne knows she's in over her head. As former all-star linebacker Trey Adams's personal lawyer, she's used to handling his business dealings and private financial matters, not murder charges. She needs to find an experienced criminal attorney who speaks her client's language. David Cormack of Garrison, Cormack and Lawless is exactly what she needs in the courtroom--and the only man she wants in the bedroom.

For David, taking on the Adams case means diving back into a world he thought he'd left behind and colliding head on with tragic possibilities he's in no mood to face. There's a reason professional football is in his past and no matter how close Isla gets to the truth he intends to leave it there.

But long days working on the case together lead to hot nights in each other's arms. As their feelings grow, the case takes a deadly twist that could change the game between the two lovers forever.

Nikki’s Review:

Every time I think Lexi Blake couldn’t get any better, she proves me wrong. I think this book may be one of my favourites by her. 

I love a good romantic suspense, and Ms. Blake can weave a mystery or thriller like no other. She keeps me on my toes for the whole book. I spend a lot of time while I’m reading trying to figure out who the bad guy is. I rarely get it right. Evidence of Desire was no different. Except, this one pulled at me a bit more than most of her books. 

Over the last handful of years we’ve heard about CTE in professional athletes, mainly football players. This is a huge part of the plot. It was so interesting and tragic all at the same time. I found myself doing some research on the internet to learn more. Lexi did an amazing job with providing factual information (at least from what I could tell from my internet research) on the disease. 

David is an ex-football player turned criminal defence attorney. He’s been recommended for a case that hits a little too close to home for him. 

Isla is a business attorney and one of her clients, who is more like family, is accused of murdering his wife. She knows he couldn’t have possibly done it. She and David work together to prove her client innocent. 

Of course the sparks fly from the get go between Isla and David. It was hot, but it was also incredibly sweet. These are two characters who haven’t had a lot of happiness in their pasts, so there’s lots of indecision. Fortunately, their hearts take over pretty quickly!

I swear, I was constantly at the edge of my seat. One minute I thought the bad guy was one person, and then I thought it was someone else. This happened a few times, so when it was revealed, I was blown away! I didn’t see it coming. It was brilliant!

This is turning out to be an amazing series. Though I’ve never read anything of Lexi’s that doesn’t make me gush. This book could be read as a stand alone, but I think you’d benefit from reading the first book, Order of Protection

DAMIEN RELEASE BLITZ

DAMIEN_RB.jpg

I am Damien Stark. Do you want to see inside my head?

Careful what you wish for.

Damien, an all-new full-length novel in the wildly popular Stark Saga, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is available now!

Damien_FNL_081418_v2.jpg

I am Damien Stark. From the outside, I have a perfect life. A billionaire with a beautiful family. But if you could see inside my head, you’d know I’m as f-ed up as a person can be. Now more than ever.

I’m driven, relentless, and successful, but all of that means nothing without my wife and daughters. They’re my entire world, and I failed them. Now I can barely look at them without drowning in an abyss of self-recrimination.

Only one thing keeps me sane—losing myself in my wife’s silken caresses where I can pour all my pain into the one thing I know I can give her. Pleasure.

But the threats against my family are real, and I won’t let anything happen to them ever again. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe—pay any price, embrace any darkness. They are mine.

I am Damien Stark. Do you want to see inside my head? Careful what you wish for.

Chandler Moon’s career as a defensemen for the IceCats is on fire. However, his marriage has gone up in flames…literally. He’s resigned himself to the single life and being the best dog dad he can be, but he still holds out hope that one day he’ll find “The One.” So, imagine his surprise when he runs into “The One Who Got Away.”

Amelia Justice.

His best friend’s baby sister.

AKA: “The One Who Is Totally Off-Limits”

Amelia is broken. The punches that life, and her ex-husband, have thrown at her have her down for the count. She’s cut herself off from her family and friends as she works to rebuild her self-esteem and her spirit. Hidden away in a small town, she never expects to reconnect with “The One She Should Have Chosen.”

Chandler is so much more than he was in college: more handsome, more muscular, more tattooed… It was supposed to be a casual fling while Amelia and Chandler worked to put the pieces of their lives back together.

But as every good hockey player knows, a rebound can turn into one hell of a goal.

A thirst for more than my safe keeping.

I can’t fall for him. Can’t be tempted by his touch.

Nikki’s Review:

I’ve been blown away. Seriously, even after reading Hunter, I’m still shocked. Eden Summers is an amazing author. Her Reckless Beat series is one of my absolute favourites. This series is so different from that though. It’s dark, angsty, and full of heart pounding suspense. I loved every second of it.

The chemistry between Keira and Decker was brutally delicious. I could feel their connection almost from the get go. Eden Summers writes amazing love scenes! Like, drool worthy love scenes!

Like With Hunter, I was on the edge of my seat with this one. The twists and turns of the plot kept me invested. The story moved wonderfully. I couldn’t put it down. The writing, as always with Eden Summers, was nothing short of brilliant. 

If you’re looking for a book with an amazing plot, and enough romance to knock your socks off, give this one a go!

TASTING FIRE (STEELE RIDGE:THE KINGSTONS #2)

Fire in one hand, ashes in the other

Studious tutor Emmy McKay fell in love with Cash Kingston over a biology textbook, never expecting the high school football hero to give her a second thought. But his feelings for her burned just as hot. All too soon, Emmy’s choices destroyed their youthful relationship, reducing it to a pile of ash. Years later, she has landed her dream job as an ER doctor in her hometown. Now it’s time to win back her dream man.

As a firefighter and tactical medic, Cash Kingston is no stranger to white-knuckle situations. But when he learns his beautiful—and brilliant—ex-girlfriend has returned to Steele Ridge, he feels as if he’s standing on the roof of a blazing building. With no escape route in sight. Emmy is the only woman who’s ever had the power to build him up one minute and burn him down the next.

But when someone targets Emmy and they begin to suspect the danger stems from their past relationship, it’s impossible for Cash to stay detached. Will the struggle to untangle a web of half-truths bring them closer together, or will it tear them apart for good?

Steele Ridge: The Kingstons #2

Steele Ridge, LLC

Liza's Review:

Tasting Fire is the second book in the Steele Ridge: The Kingstons series. Much like the original Steele Ridge series, Kelsey Browning, Tracey Devlyn, or Adrienne Giordano will write the books in the newest series. Kelsey Browning wrote Tasting Fire. I usually read books in a series in order, but I've jumped around a bit with both the original series and this newest one. While I really believe you can read each book as a stand-alone story, I totally plan to go back and read each of the books I missed so far.

I absolutely adore a reunion romance and add in a bit of suspense and I'm in my happy place. Kelsey Browning did an amazing job with Tasting Fire. Not only did I love both Cash Kingston and Emmy McKay from the moment they each appeared on the page, I could tell even after all the years they had been apart, they still loved each other, even if they weren't willing to admit it in the beginning. I love that both Emmy and Cash are extremely strong individuals. I loved seeing them get to reconnect so quickly thanks to Emmy being the new leader of the tactical team along with being an ER doctor in the local hospital. As Cash thought he was a shoe-in for the position of leader for the team, he is doubly shocked not to get the position, but to discover Emmy is back and the position is hers.

I loved while there was major tension between Emmy and Cash when they first saw each other again, they quickly found a way not only to put the past behind them and work together, but build to so much more. I have to say the mystery of who was targeting Emmy totally threw me. I was so sure it was one individual and was completely blown away to find out who was behind everything. I love when an author can keep me guessing in a romantic suspense book, and Kelsey Browning did an amazing job in Tasting Fire. Add in all the super sexy and amazing chemistry between Emmy and Cash, and Tasting Fire was a winner in my book.
