When I accidentally wished for my own Prince Charming, I never expected him to actually show up. Not here in South America–not at the crappy charity clinic where I work.

But life never is as simple as making a wish—and while Prince Leopold is definitely charming, he’s also cocky. And arrogant. And a huge playboy. He’s everything I’ve promised myself I’d stay away from.

So why can’t I seem to resist him?

There’s no way Prince Leo is actually interested in a normal girl like me. No way he’ll ever be able to overcome his womanizing ways to be the prince of my dreams. And the more time I spend with him, it’s clear he has almost as many secrets as me.

I’m only sure of one thing—if I give him what he wants, he’s going to break my heart.

My Thoughts

After reading about Prince Leo and Elle in the first series Royal Mistake, i think that it’s about time that we learned how these two got together since it couldn’t have been easy.

Elle is working in the Children’s clinic funded by the Montovian government in South America, and she’s got just a few days left in her year contract to finish up.  The challenge in this place is that they don’t have the supplies and machinery that they need and Elle’s sacrificed just about everything that she could in order to do what she can because she truly loves helping everyone get better.  the intention of the clinic was to be a well center where people could go for vaccines and the like however because we’re in South America, the liklikhood that the people there can afford well care is low and the clinic is barely functioning.

Then enters Prince Leo who has been sent out of Montovia for one reason or another and has been tasked with finding out what’s going on in the clinic.  Of course, we have a sense of what the reason is that he was exiled and yet it’s still going to be interesting to see him admit it all.

So when these two meet, you can feel the electricity between them, however Leo comes off strong since that’s who he is and Elle has clearly had something happen in her past to make her not trust men, and does everything in her power to push him away.

Where we are left at the beginning of this first installment is Leo trying and trying some more, using an injury as a means to get closer and Elle trying her best to push him away.  When a surprise man shows up at the clinic, well we’re left to wonder what it means for them.  So…onto the next.  enjoy!

The sizzling, novel-length conclusion to a very royal romance…

My relationship with Prince Andrew has been thrilling. Life-changing. Completely and totally intoxicating… But it hasn’t been easy—and it’s about to face its biggest challenge yet.

I don’t know what Andrew and I would do without each other. But this is bigger than us. The fate of Montovia hangs in the balance…

My Thoughts

Well, i really wanted to see what they were going to come up with to make everyone happy in the end, and suffice it to say, it’s a very mixed path that we go on in this last installment.

Andrew and Victoria are meant to be, yet they get in each other’s way more than they know.  both are willing to sacrifice their happiness for the good of Montovia, and i think that it’s where the downfall of it all culminates.

We know that Prince Reginald is holding everything over Andrew’s head that he possibly can and we see all the sides of him that we knew existed but didn’t really care to see.  Then there’s his father who’s now out to make sure that Andrew pays for ‘humiliating’ his daughter Justine by choosing Victoria, so all is about to go to hell.

Top that off with the fact that Andrew’s father the king is still quite gravely ill, and you know that things are going to get dicey all around.

So secrets come out, people are put into positions that they never wanted nor expected and all at the same time, Victoria and Andrew go on this ‘will they won’t they’ trip with marriage or not.

I think that what we wanted to see happen was done and what we figured was likely to happen also happens.  I wanted to see happy endings with everyone but i also feel like there are a few loose ends that may get wrapped up in a spin-off.  So, on that note, happy with the series overall and i’m going to see what i can get my hands on next.  Enjoy!

Series:  The Amped Series #1


Aidan Pierce has nothing to prove, and everything to lose.

He’s a success in everything he does.

A prodigy disguised in a stunning male form.

Intense. Passionate. Wealthy, almost beyond measure. He’s back in his birthplace to right long ago wrongs, to bring a plan years in the making to fruition…

Until he meets Alexis Greene. Tipping her world off its axis, he unexpectedly upends his own.

Alexis Greene has everything to prove, and nothing left to lose. She graduated at the top of her law school class. She’s beautiful. Ethical. Conservative, but not shy with four letter words. She’s set to make her mark in a prominent firm in Lake County when her husband unexpectedly dies. She’s left conflicted and wanting more from life, without knowing what more there could ever be…

Until she meets Aidan Pierce. His past would never allow him to be something more – not for anyone. That doesn’t stop him from wanting her. If she fell into his world it would take everything she had to maintain her Balance.

My Thoughts

First – again i have to thank the folks over at Netgalley for getting me a copy of this first installment to yet another series.  What we have here is a story of two people who of course have a haunted past and a less than easy present, and when their paths cross, things get interesting.

We meet Aiden first when he’s having a flash back to when he was 8 years old and was reliving an experience with his drunk father.  Then that turns into a nightmare of the day his brother died in a car crash.  We know that his upbringing was tough, and of course that means that he’s going to turn into quite the successful billionaire and business man – partially with the help of his mother’s husband.

Then there’s Alexis, our leading lady who we meet in a flashback of the day that her husband ben dies – which we learn was due to an aneurysm.  Our author makes sure to note that she doesn’t react as expected but that’s all going to come out later in the story.

So where we go in this first installment to the series is that we’re in a small town in New York state where Alexis is a lawyer trying to make a name for herself as she’s just taken over her father’s firm now that she’s passed the Bar and he’s passed away.  Aiden is also in town as he’s trying to build a Center for the locals to go to learn skills to keep them from becoming what his father was.

These two trouble folks mean one thing – once they come together, there will be so much pent up pain and frustration to make any semblance of sexual tension explode – and it happens of course.

Alexis allows Aiden into her mind and heart – allows him to know her innermost secrets, especially those that surround her marriage, and in turn, he gives her a glimpse into what he was like before becoming what he is now.  Neither story is nice but i think that it gives us all a better understanding of what we’re up against.

If that wasn’t all, there’s also this underlying plot line if an energy company that wants to get their hands on some land in their town to do some drilling, under the guise of another company name and motive.  When Aiden thwarts that, Alexis of course is pissed since it’s her money that he’s hurting, until she learns why.  Then another deal comes along, but Aiden seems to think that there’s still quite a bit of danger around them all and wants Alexis to be careful.  We don’t get to the bottom of this story line in this first book but it’s lingering and definitely interesting.

Then there’s the other story line of Stella – Aiden’s ex and while we know the capacity of their relationship, there’s a lot of secrets around that which Aiden is keeping from Alexis and when it all comes to a head, we see her shut him out and the question becomes will he be able to grovel and get her to come back.  So on that note, i now have to wait until the next book comes out to see what happens.  Enjoy!

Length:   245 Pages
Series:  The Lover’s Triangle #1


In this novel perfect for fans of Lora Leigh, Maya Banks, and Shayla Black, Calista Fox delivers a sexy and sensuous friends-to-lovers tale with a delicious love triangle twist.

Jewel Catalano, Rogen Angelini, and Vin D’Angelo had been childhood best friends, spending every possible moment with one another. Rogen became her first love, the first one to show her what pleasure could be. Until a volatile feud erupted between their powerful California wine country families and she and Rogen were torn apart from each other. What she didn’t expect was to find comfort and passion like she had never known in Vin’s arms and bed. But when that too ended in disaster, Jewel moved to San Francisco to work for the Catalano empire. Years later, a series of daring acquisitions brings Jewel back to River Cross, the hometown where Rogen and Vin have recently returned as well. Jewel has the curves, the smarts, and the success to bring any man to his knees—especially the two men who remained best friends and still burn to possess her.

Mixing family business with erotic pleasure ignites a smoldering love triangle. But in order to pull off the bold deal that will build the trios’ own legacy and to stay in their heady, sensual paradise, they must discover what true love really is—or lose everything their hearts’ desire…

My Thoughts

First off i should thank the folks at Netgalley for getting me an ARC to read of this series introduction.  What we have here is an interesting tale of 2 past relationships merging into an interesting Menage, all with a family feud thrown in the middle.

We start off this new series with Jewel, a woman who’s part of a family dynasty, and yet someone who’s trying to make a name for herself.  she’s back in River Crossing, her family home in the hopes of striking a deal to get a piece of land that’s been left barren because of a family feud.  Of course, Rogen, the son of another well known family is also interested in the same piece of land.  and the challenge of course is that it’s barren land because their parents were intending to do a business deal 15 years prior that ended up going wrong, and for many reasons unkown, they aren’t allowed to touch it.

Jewel’s a shrewd business woman and has a plan to get the land, and just when she thinks that she’s been able to make the deal, she learns that it’s going to blow up in her face.  The saving grace though is that the same night that she strikes the deal with Gian, Rogen’s father, she connects with him and all the past heat between them ignites hotter than you can even imagine and we see something amazing start.

If that weren’t good enough, feeling the chemistry between them leap off the pages, Vin,Rogen’s best friend and psuedo brother shows up and there’s clearly a history between him and Jewel as well, and we see that she slaps him upon sight, and things go on an interesting path from there.

The rest of the story we see Jewel trying to make her deal happen, while also finding out that the heat and chemistry that she has with Rogen is back with even more passion.  We also learn that the hatred that caused this slap on sight from Jewel to Vin is fueled by their own passion from years past, and well, the threesome is born.

I’m a fan of good writing when we get the chance to have trios, however there were instances when i think that the heat could have been taken a bit hotter and further.  The story was maintained even without the extra umph and i’m quite interested to see where things go now that there’s a hint that we’re going to learn what caused the riff between families.

All in all, a nice intro to a new series and i can’t wait to see what’s next.  there are so many secondary character’s that we’ve met that i feel like spin off installments are due.  Enjoy!

Review: Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J Maas

Title: Empire of Storms
Author: Sarah J Maas
Publisher/Year: Bloomsbury USA 9/6/16
Length:   595 Pages
Series:  Throne of Glass #5


Kingdoms collide in Sarah J. Maas’s epic fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series.

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t.

With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves. But as monsters emerge from the horrors of the past, and dark forces become poised to claim her world, the only chance for salvation will lie in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

In this breathtaking fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, Aelin will have to choose what — and who — to sacrifice if she’s to keep the world of Erilea from breaking apart.

My Thoughts

There is SO MUCH going on in this 5th installment that i tried to make reading it take longer since i know that we’ll be waiting ages for the next one to come out.  i LOVE this series and i can’t say it enough.

We have seen Aelin come into her own and really get her strength in her power and control over her kingdom.  It’s not an easy quest and it’s going to get much harder.  She’s still on the trail of all the wordkeys and challenging isn’t even the beginning of what she’s up against.

We saw that her alliances throughout the series have become interesting – how she’s now so completely tied to Rowan that you have to wonder what that will mean for him as a Fae prince and for the others in his cadre since there seems to be quite the unbreakable bond there, even though he’s no longer tied like they are to Queen Maeve.

Then there’s the story around Manon.  we have seen her rise to power in her coven, yet it looks like things are going to get so much worse given that there’s information being kept from her from Erawan and her grandmother, and she’s starting to distrust them all.  What’s so nice about this story line for her is that we see that she’s got emotions and a heart and that while she’s thrown into a situation that’s completely unexpected, she’s able to show that she’s perhaps more valuable than anyone knew.

then there’s Elide – the girl from Terrasen who was held captive by her uncle in Morath, and who we learn that there’s more to her back story than we knew before.  She’s becoming more important since Manon claims care over her and yet, she’s still finding that maybe that’s not the right path for her.  The way that her story goes, and how it intertwines with Lorcan, one of the other strong Fae men in Maeve’s court, well you know that it’s going to be interesting.  Neither of them trusts the other, and yet there’s something unique growing between them.

Then there’s Dorian – well, he’s now the king, yet he’s trying to control his power so it means that we’re going to see that as a tough journey for him.  How strong is he and will he help Aelin take over control of things.

And last, but not least of folks that we know and love, Lysandra and Aedion.  They are a pair that’s becoming a force to be reckoned with.  Lysandra’s role throughout this story is one that no one realizes until it’s too late. Aelin sees what she’s able to become and uses that to their advantage, and to see what that means as this story progresses is incredible.

A war is brewing – that much we know.  There’s no question that there’s going to be a lot of lost lives, lost loves, and there’s really only one chance that they’ll get to get control of the continent.  Maeve proves to be worse than anyone knew, but Aelin is more resourceful than anyone else expected and we see her pulling out tricks right and left.  The problem though is that there’s not enough time for her to get things together before all hell breaks loose and we’re left at a point in the story where hope is lost, friends have been taken hostage and we really have no idea what’s next and how they can win.  if they can win.  i can’t wait until book 6 comes out.  i need it now!!!!

Series:  Royal Mistake #5


I thought Victoria and I could be together – until she told me her secret.

But coming to terms with her deception isn’t my only concern – my own secret has leaked to the press, and now the people of Montovia will see once and for all that I’m not the crown prince they thought I was.

And after everything Victoria and I have survived, am I about to lose everything I hold dear?

My Thoughts

So… we know why VIctoria can’t have babies and of course that means that there’s an issue of whether she can even be Andrews wife since she can’t produce an heir.  If that were their only problem right?

So we’re back in Montovia, likely not the best place for them to be together, but they are there.  And we see that it’s definitely getting harder and harder for them.  They want to be together and have admitted as much to each other but everyone around them really wants that not to happen.  Lady Clarissa walks in at the wrong moment and all hell breaks loose.  Leaving Victoria on the floor, Andrew storming off, the King pissed off yet again, and a betrothal announced.  or so we think.

Fast forward to running off to a train because Victoria needs out of the country fast, and we see that these two really can’t keep their hands off each other.  Chaos ensues and in addition to their own craziness, we learn that the secret that Andrews’ been hiding has come out – not just what we learned in book 4, but what the truth is and that means that they have to get back to Montovia ASAP to try to fix things

The question that we’re constantly asking ourselves is whether this is all worth it and if they can ever manage to find some time to just ‘be’.  Andrew throughout this story has started to evolve from what we saw at first to being a man only living for his country and duty as crown prince to a man that perhaps wants something for himself.  is he willing to do what it takes to have that though?  we don’t know yet and i’m assuming that we’ll find out in book 6 out in the next week.  Enjoy!

I’m faced with an impossible choice: Montovia deserves an heir who will do anything to serve his country, and Victoria deserves a man who will put her above all else. I can’t be both. It’s impossible.

But I also can’t give her up. I’ve never wanted anyone or anything like I want Victoria. And even though circumstances try to tear us apart, I can’t stay away—and impossible or not, I can’t put off my choice any longer.

My Thoughts

We knew that things were going to get tough for poor Andrew, and that Victoria was coming into her own realizations of what was for her and what wasn’t – but you also know that in a twisted romance like this – everyone’s going to get hurt.

So the Pageantry continues – and the farce of Andrew’s quest to find a bride becomes all lopsided since his secret is out with his father, and he’s being forced to marry Princes Justine to keep his country from becoming a laughing stock, however Lady Clarissa, his cousin seems to have this arrangement with Andrew’s father and her claws are deeply into everything.

Add the growing feelings that Victoria and Andrew have for each other, and the point that they’ve now acknowledged that they ‘care’ for one another, and you know that it’s going to be explosive.

In this 4th installment, we see things really heat up in the romance and naughtiness departments between these two.  There’s still electricity between them and i’m starting to see that our author(s) has a bit of a sexy side since the scenes that we do get are spicy.

The main point though of this fourth book though i think is that we see that these two have so much heat that they push each other away, and we see Victoria leave the palace not just once but twice because this life isn’t for her.  Because of all that too – we finally get to hear about her story – her past and what made her life into what it is.

There are things being asked of both of our main characters that’s really too much for either to cope with and i think that we’re going to see that not only will the King continue to be up in arms, but it’ll be a true test of whether their emotions and feelings are enough to make things work.  I don’t know what the story will bring since there are so many people against it all, but i think that it’ll be entertaining.  On that note – i’m off to book 5.  have a great night!

Series:  Royal Mistake #3


Falling for a prince is no fairy tale – especially when the prince in question is holding a pageant to find a wife.

I know it’s Prince Andrew’s job to marry someone from the nobility—and my job to turn his search into a juicy tabloid story—but the longer I do this, the harder it is to deny my feelings. And he has the audacity to continue this ridiculous spectacle of a marriage pageant while doing things to me in private that make my toes curl…

The more time I spend in the Montovian Palace, though, the more I start to see the other side of Prince Andrew – the side he hides beneath his brooding exterior and his unwavering devotion to his country. Finally, after everything we’ve been through, I’m starting to learn his secrets…

My Thoughts

The saga continues – and it’s getting complicated for everyone involved.  The Pageant of finding Andrew a wife is now in full force, even after the king has walked in to discover Andrew and Victoria in bed.  The woman that he’s brought in to be Andrew’s wife though, that’s another issue completely.

Suffice it to say, there’s no shortage of excitement in this third installment.  Aside from the secret that Andrew’s trying to keep from coming out, (which we only start to get to the bottom of), we have the growing attraction and inability for Victoria and Andrew to keep their hands off each other, and then add on the ‘wife candidates’ and then William (Andrew’s brother) – well you know that things will get to be good.

The change in this installment from what we saw in the previous ones are that there’s depth that’s  beginning to show.  We know that Victoria’s not clueless to what her role in all this is, but we see that it’s becoming more difficult for her to both do her job and continue down the path of whatever it is between her and Andrew.  They are both going to get hurt through all this, and Victoria seems to be trying to distance herself from it all.

Then there’s the fact that Andrew is so ‘by the rules’ that things are not just complicated but thoroughly entertaining.  He’s as stickler for all the rules of being a royal and having manners, yet clearly he’s not a man of complete manners when it comes to Victoria because he’s quite the ‘naughty prince’ when they are alone.

Now there’s adding in William – someone who’s likely a better match for Victoria on paper, and one that the Queen supports as well – but jealousy is something that we see come out in huge strength when he’s in the room.

So all in all, there’s a lot of excitement that comes out and i feel like there’s something big around the corner.  The secret that Andrew has been trying to keep under wraps has come out but in a different form, and another princess has come along in the search for a wife.  Personalities clash, emotions come to the surface and i don’t know that everyone will be happy in the end.  Can’t wait to see what’s next.

As the crown prince, I’ve devoted my life to Montovia. My one mistake has already cost me dearly, and I find I must now take more drastic measures to regain the trust of the people.

Victoria can help me to do just that. And though she finds my plan ridiculous, it is the only way to regain what I’ve lost.

But she continues to surprise me. And after our ordeal, I find I’m unable to find comfort anywhere but in her arms.

I can’t stay away from her, but I know that because of my position, she and I can never be together.

My Thoughts

Well, we now know that they have survived the plane crash and have found civilization and as you’ll recall, the very last scene in book 1 was that they saw the news that reported that Prince Andrew had commit suicide by crashing his plane.  So now they are dealing with that and the need to get back to Montovia in order to both squash this story as well as preemptively deal with the nonsense that caused the need for Victoria to come into play in the first place.

We find ourselves in the hospital because Victoria needed treatment for the cut on her foot.  Along with this, we see that there’s a bond growing between these 2 – we know that they have romantic feelings towards one another but refuse to act upon it since it’s just never going to work out.  Then there’s the bit of the crazy plan that Andrew has on staging a reality bit of sorts to find a wife and to get married – all to put himself back in the good graces of people, to stave off the fallout from the secret that he’s keeping and to make sure that his brother Leopold doesn’t take over his spot as the loved one.

So the novella that we have here is a bit of a jumpy one.  We end up back in Montovia, and we see how the beginnings of this crazy plan are falling into place. There’s definitely a few fishy things going on since his father the king was all to quick to agree to the idea of the farce, and then he has his own idea of who Andrew should marry.  Between you and me (and likely all of the readers) – yo uhave to know that it’s the girl that caused all the problems to begin with….right?

Aside from that, there’s the fact that there’s a clear attraction between Victoria and Andrew, everyone sees it but they aren’t really willing to admit it to themselves nor can they truly act on it.  So they continue under the guise that they can’t sleep without one another to make themselves feel better about their need to spend time together.

Being that it’s a short 2nd installment, we don’t get too much out of it.  We learn a bit more about Victoria, although the more we learn, the more we see that there are secrets in her past that we don’t yet know.  i’m kind of hoping that we will since she keeps dropping hints about reasons that she wasn’t able to do things in her past.  i’m intrigued.

Then there’s the fact of the bigger secret that we still don’t know but can guess about.  i’m curious how that’s all going to play out.

And then there’s the last scene in this book where the king barges in and sees something that he doesn’t want to.  so…where will we go from here?  it’s onto book 3 to find out.  Enjoy!

Series:  Royal Mistake #1


Some princes are charming. Others are assholes.

I’ve spent most of my career writing tabloid articles about the royals of Montovia, and Prince Andrew, the heir to the throne, was always the one that intrigued me most. He’s so guarded, so mysterious…so ridiculously attractive.

And then I met him. And I found out he’s the most arrogant, smug, infuriating man to ever live.

He also desperately needs my help.

There are three things I know for sure. First, Prince Andrew has a secret. Second, he’ll do anything to keep it a secret. And third, in spite of how infuriating I find him, I can’t help being incredibly attracted to him.

My Thoughts

I desperately needed something light to read for a minute while i was both traveling and getting through Throne of Glass since that’s a really ‘deep’ series.  So…i stumbled across this series – the first novella in the Royal Mistake Series. To be honest, it was exactly what i needed in the sense of being light and airy – but ….it’s a story that likely needs to be developed more as it probable will be in the coming installments.

So in this first book, as the summary tells you, we come across our leading lady who is a tabloid reporter who’s assigned to the royal family of Montrovia – a country that i’m guessing us supposed to be a version of Great Britain.  Anyhow…we start the story where she is the guest of one of her close friends Elle who is engaged to a Royal, however since Prince Andrew, the heir knows that she’s a reporter and doesn’t allow them at state dinners, he has her deported.  That’s where things turn for her i suppose.

So she finds herself back in the US at work, hoping to pitch another type of story where she doesn’t have to follow the royals around (a task she’s found herself in given that the Queen trusts her because of a story she helped spin a while back), and her boss isn’t having it.  She tries to resign, only to find the Prince in his office, looking for her help.

Then there’s Prince Andrew, the heir to the throne and the one that’s got a huge reputation to live up to.  Apparently there was a night in Prague a while back that he did something that he isn’t proud of and that can ruin his reputation along with that of his country – so he’s in a bind to try to spin the story before it comes out.

That’s where our character’s paths cross once again.  He needs her, she wants nothing to do with him.  Add in a plane crash and a quest for survival, along with an attraction that they don’t want to act on and we have the beginnings of a story.

The challenge that i have here, which i should get over since it’s a novella is that it’s light.  There’s not a ton of depth to it, but again, that’s kind of what i wanted to i don’t think that it makes ALL that much of a difference.  Then there’s the little twist of what they find out as news coming out of Montrovia of the plane crash – and that’s where our first installment ends.

So, all in all, exactly what i needed and while it was light, i’ll give the rest of the series a try since i think that i need something that doesn’t require a lot of my brain power to process.  Have a great day all!
