Book Review…Let’s Plan My Murder

Life is a thirsty hell, and people in it are monsters. Twenty-one-year-old Ava, however, thinks her life is perfect. She has a hands-on mother who is always available to help her at the drop of a dime. A famous boyfriend who most women would kill for. A promising career path striding her towards success. But then she meets him, Noah. A handsome man with a devilish smile and something to hide. He is not her friend. He is not her enemy. He is just the guy who persuades her to plan her own Murder. After listening to his argument, she can’t help but admit…he’s got a point.
4 Stars

This is NOT what I expected at all. With that being said, I was pleasantly surprised.

Noah is my favorite character. He is well written and very dynamic. You don’t want to like him, but you do. Then you hate him but then come back around to like him. It’s hard to tell if he’s your friend or enemy. Noah is the epitome of FRENEMY.
This book sucked me in, I needed to know what was going to happen. Was perfect Ava going to fall for Noah’s plan? Or would she veer off onto a new path?

Book Review…Crafting Love

I, Kelly, am a small-town girl and love my small-town world. I get to work with two amazing, entrepreneur women. One makes wine, the other makes furniture, and I help to sell it all. On a sad, lonely night I bought myself a Cricut machine and haven’t looked back. Now people call me the Cricut Queen. I even have a YouTube channel with a few thousand followers. Some friends and family can’t grasp my need to stay busy. Nights can be very lonely and quiet.

A night of Karaoke changes everything.

Kirk draws me in at hello and I don’t want to look away. He’s everything a girl could want. Nice, funny, could dance alongside the boys in Magic Mike. Yes, that hot. He is also very good with his hands and offers to help fix my leaking basement with his cousin. A friendship is born.

Love is a touchy subject, but a relationship can’t be ignored.

Between my crazy girlfriends, a budding relationship, and a jealous woman, this decade is starting off on a wild ride. The real question is: who will make it to the end?
4.5 Stars

On my vacay to the OBX I took a handful of books. This was one of them and I’m so glad that I did! Be still my heart. I never read anything by AE Gamrat before. I’m now a HUGE fan.

Happy Birthday, Kelly! On the cusp of her 30th birthday, Kelly has a great job, a wonderful family, and good friends. Her college friend Grace is planning a ‘surprise party. Actually, a party to find Kelly a man that Grace approves of. Only Kelly ends up talking to Kirk, not the man Grace intended. Oh well, sometimes life takes a different turn.

Kirk is new to town and staying with Kelly’s cousin. His job starts soon and then he should be able to move out. Then he meets Kelly. He’s not looking for love or romance. Yet, she pulls him in and he wants it. Kirk is just out of a bad situation, Kelly is too. So neither are ready to jump into the frying pan. Yet the chemistry is there. Everyone can feel it.

This is a clean, feel-good book! I adore Kelly and her creativity and her ability to trust again after a bad relationship. She knew Kirk was meant for her. It’s adorable. It restores your faith in love!

Book Review…Succubus Bargain

Join Adie on her (mis)adventures toward achieving a quasi-normal life among humans.

Reverse Harem Serial.
3 Stars

Adie Pond is a succubus, and not a great one. A succubus all the same. Her mentor hasn’t bothered to teach her how to feed off humans, only to skim. It never fills up her energy levels to full. Skimming gives her enough to get by. Then she is found by 3 demons, who are in need of a succus to drain them of their power. When she doesn’t jump at the chance, they scheme a new idea. They will set a trap for her. Only Adie outsmarts them and sets herself up. Not as well as she hoped, but still good.

Slowly Adie tries to learn about herself. Emil, Tobias, and Kellen tempt her to do more than skim off them. The library is packed full of knowledge and little by little Adie is learning about herself.

This is a good story, but I was hoping for more. More steaminess, more something. I wish the 3 demons could teach her more about being a succubus. Show her how things could be if she allowed certain things. It’s not that I don’t like Adie, I do. I like that she has morals. But some of her morals get in the way and she can’t move forward in what she needs/desires.

The writing is smooth and the characters are well written. It’s a good story. With lots of potential for book #2 and beyond. I’m not sure I will read the next book.
