Short and Sweet! Irresistible and Endearing!! Lovable and Fuzzy!!! That’s “Sunset In Laguna” for you.

Part of the Kindle World Novellas, Melanie Shawn comes up with a sweet and sugary romance for the soul. With their amazing writing prowess, Melanie and Shawna weave a fairy tale romance around Griff Hudson and Cheyenne Burns in the picturesque Laguna Beach.


Cheyenne comes to Laguna Beach to find herself and her art that seems to have taken a sabbatical and rooming with the resident writer Griff Hudson may just be the muse that she seems to be missing. His first look of Cheyenne brings Griff almost to his knees as the bolts of attraction strike him dead center. Staying secluded to find overcome his writing block is no help, but sharing a cottage with Chey may just be the remedy and motivation to bring back his creativity.

The sister duo of Melanie and Shawna sure know how to pen novellas with enough charisma and sizzle, but not losing sight of the importance of characters and their individualities. With enough attention to emotions and the plot even for a novella, “Sunset In Laguna” is a charming and romantic read.

“Riley Ingram, the girl who had never belonged to anyone, had finally found her way home.” 

No matter how far you run, the past has a nasty knack of playing catch up. No matter you’ve created an identity to start fresh, unless the past is erased, there cannot be hope of a future. Riley Ingram may have been “Running Scared” from the demons of her heinous past, but she has become a warrior at heart saving lives and becoming a daughter to Noah McCall. Paired with Justine Kelly and running ops with him for the past three years has given her purpose to love, hope to survive and a LCR family that covers her six no matter what. And working three years with Justin only seems to stoke the embers of desire and passion that refuses to diffuse between them.

RunningScared-LCR Elite

The past has come calling for Riley Ingram aka Jessica Larsen and the time has come for Jessica Larsen to pen the final chapter of her past and getting the answers she deserves of her identity and her roots. And we get a torturously amazing story of evil and danger, tenacity and courage, passion and love, support and family.

I shall forever remember the morning after Riley and Justin spent a night together. The emotional conversation between Noah and Justin will be one of my favorite scenes. The confessional night between Riley and Justin will forever be one of the most heart wrenching and tearful dialogues I’ve read. And Riley and Justin will be one of my top favorites of Christy’s character in par with McKenna and Lucas (Last Chance).

Christy Reece created another elite pair in Riley and Justin. Her attention to detail is amazing, her play of emotions and tenderness is a bullet to your heart, and her placement of supporting characters in the story only proves her prowess as a brilliant romantic suspense writer. A review definitely doesn’t do justice to her novels. Her books have to be read to endure the evil, live in the emotions, savor the passion and root for her flawed characters with her flawless writing!

The wheels have been set in motion for Aidan and Anna, and I cannot wait to see how Christy Reece choreographs their story of a lifetime!

Don’t remember if I read Terry Spears before, but “Seal Wolf In Too Deep” took me a while to finish it. As much as I love reading paranormal, this Navy SEAL shifter Allan Rappaport and his human partner Debbie Renaud somehow did not set the pages ablaze.


Few know that paranormal and humans co-exist and Allan makes sure that his secret is safe. Working as a police diver and with a human partner makes things difficult, as a rogue werewolf seems to be targeting his kind, and his feelings for Debbie dig deeper into his heart.

The storyline is good, except I felt the writing was not up to par as it did not draw me into the story. The scenes, the danger and the passion really did not touch keep me enthralled and the both the characters lacked chemistry.

Savannah Stuart/Katie Reus is another brilliant writer I follow, quenching my thirst for he paranormal and the suspense. Miami Scorchers Series is just another one of her fabulous writings. Who can resist the alpha shifters and their intended mates?


“Worth The Risk”, book two in her Miami Scorcher Series brings Marisol Cabrera into the protective wings of the undercover DEA Stephen Lazos and his powerful Lazos pack. Marisol has a score to settle with an evil arms dealer who completely erased her entire pack. Stephen has been undercover to bring this very guy down, and with Marisol thrown into the middle of this war and knowing that she’s his mate, only adds to his need to protect Marisol and keep his identity a secret if he wants to stay alive and make a life with Marisol.

It’s always a pleasure to read Katie Rues aka Savannah Stuart. She is so good at writing short stories and come away with a fulfilling read. Nothing short on passion, danger and the protective instincts of family to care of their own, “Worth The Risk” is another sizzling read.

Kendra Elliot’s “Bone Secrets Series” is a “Chilling” ride of “Buried” secrets, “Hidden” twists and finding yourself “Alone” with cold blooded murderers. With twisted minds they stay “Veiled” among the “Known”. If her villains make you wonder in sheer amazement of how perverted, warped, and disturbed they can be, her heroes and heroines make us believe in the good that exists and the courage and bravery that her protagonists show to protect their loved ones.


Her latest release, “Known” coming out on January 19, 2016 takes us on the ride of the un’Known’ when Gianna Trask and her teenage daughter are saved by Chris Jacobs. Waking up in the stormy Cascade Mountains, Gianna has no recollection of her rented cabin being burned to the ground and her daughter saving her life. And when the charred remains of a body comes to light in the burnt cabin, its time call in the law and re-visit Gianna’s past.

Chris Jacobs is no stranger to evil and brutal pain. His physical scars may have faded, but his mental scars remind of the torture he had endured as a kidnapped victim in his teenage years. And when Gianna and his daughter are threatened, he goes into survival mode and would protect them until his very last breath.

The suspense and rush is just as nerve pumping as the sublime romance between Gianna and Chris. Kendra’s attention to detail is one of her very best traits as a writer, and makes the reading so much more compelling. It’s always wonderful to re-visit her previous characters and read about their lives after they have walked off into the sunset.

Kendra Elliot writes some mean thrillers and suspense and the best of all each book in the series can be read as a standalone. I’ve been following her since her very first book and there’s no doubt of her writing prowess and the fact of her amazing transformation from a novice writer to an acclaimed author is just as wonderful to see in her stories
