RELEASE DATE: February 14th 2019 
SOURCE: complimentary copy


Talia White got a happily-ever-after with her favorite broody dragon warrior …
Or did she?
With her secret identity as a unicorn blown, everyone is either trying to kill or court her. And when old enemies … and ex-boyfriends resurface, Talia finds it difficult balancing the scales of duty and romance. Gentlemen may prefer unicorns, but Talia just wants Bryn. If only the universe would cooperate …

D.T. Dyllin is a bestselling author who writes paranormal, sci-fi, and contemporary romance. Basically, anything with a love story is her kryptonite. Her obsession with affairs-of-the-heart is what first drove her to begin twisting her own tales of scorching romance.

D.T. was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Black & Gold for life, baby!) She now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband, and two spoiled dogs.


Now that her secret is out in the open, Talia has to face new threats of different "people" trying to use her powers. Her happily-ever-after will be put to test with the appearance of a crazy sex-driven ex. The story is full of funny moments, sarcastic characters and quite an amount of action. 

I love Talia, she is a thirtyish young woman and acts like a brat sometimes, and trust me I love this, because I can totally relate with her, I'm almost 30 and it's easy to act like a spoiled child from time to time especially with your loved one. 

The book is easy to read, it has the writing style we Dara's fans love and the romance is excellent.

Review: Finding Mercy @RileyEdwardsrom

TITLE: Finding Mercy
SERIES: The Next Generation #3
AUTHOR: Riley Edwards
RELEASE DATE: February 26th, 2019
PUBLISHER: Rebels Romance
SOURCE: complimentary copy


DEA Jason Walker became a widower at Twenty-eight. Two years later he's still torturing himself with guilt. They'd married young, and she'd been his first love, but her illness changed everything. They'd fought a losing battle and he'd held her to the very end. Now he just wants to be left alone with his misery and memories.
Mercy James is no stranger to grief and loneliness. Her brother's death of a drug overdose, and her police officer father's death in the line of duty were the driving forces behind her pursuit of a career in the DEA. In spite of--or maybe because of--her past, Mercy doesn't believe in feeling sorry for others, or for herself.
When a case brings Jason and Mercy together, and their attraction heats up, can her tough, straightforwardness help Jason learn to live in the light again? He'd lost his first love, but is he ready for a forever love?

Riley Edwards is a bestselling multi-genre author, wife, and military mom. Riley was born and raised in Los Angeles but now resides on the east coast with her fantastic husband and children.

Riley writes heart-stopping romance with sexy alpha heroes and even stronger heroines. Riley's favorite genres to write are romantic suspense and military romance.


 Jason a young widower at only 30 years old, is still torturing himself for everything he did wrong. His DEA partner, Mercy, is a strong woman with a hard past. Their path cross due to work but their attraction is inevitable. What starts as a working relationship soon becomes something more.

Jason is a nice character, many of his flaws make him only more human and real. He is a beautiful man on the inside and the outside. Mercy, a woman with a sweet personality but a strong side who knows that you have to live life to the fullest.

The book has a dual POV which makes it perfect to see both sides and understand what's really going on. The writing is really good and the descriptions are so good that is easy to picture the story as a real thing.

I enjoyed and was surprised that the book jumped so soon into the hot, sexy and passional scenes. I thought that I would have to read at least 30-40% of the story before getting some steam... I was so wrong, sex is a fundamental part of their relationship. They connect in such a magical and powerful way when they are together.

I did find some things at the end to be a bit predictable but it's still is a really good book. A lovely and passional romance that you can read in just a few days.

Review: Monsterland @michaelpcash

TITLE: Monsterland 
AUTHOR: Michael Phillip Cash
PUBLISHER: Create Space
FORMAT: Paperback & ebook
SOURCE: complimentary copy


Welcome to Monsterland – the scariest place on Earth. All guests can interact with real vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by an actual werewolf on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.
Wyatt Baldwin, a high school student and life-long movie buff is staring bleakly at a future of flipping burgers. Due to a fortuitous circumstance, Wyatt and his friends are invited to the star-studded opening of Monsterland. In a theme park full of real vampires, werewolves and zombies, what could possibly go wrong?

Michael Phillip Cash is an award-winning novelist and screenwriter. His novels are best-sellers on Amazon under their genres - Young Adult, Thriller, Suspense, Ghost, Action Adventure, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror.

Michael writes full-time and lives on the North Shore of Long Island with his wonderful wife and screaming children.


Imagine a theme park where you can interact with real vampires, werewolves and zombies, in 'Monsterland' this is possible. It all seems a recipe for disaster if you ask me, teenagers, a greedy rich, paranormal beings and a sort of a closed space.

The book is short in comparison to other stories, so it's easy to read it in just a sit. The writing is good but somehow I didn't like the characters very much. It was ok despite having a predictable plot, my issue was that on top of being predictable I found it a bit boring for moments.

Review: Blood Moon Part 2

TITLE: Blood Moon Part 2
SERIES: Chroma Crossing Chronicles Book 2
AUTHOR: S. Yurvati
RELEASE DATE:  March 12th 2016
FORMAT: Paperback & ebook
SOURCE: complimentary copy


Blood Moon—part 2:
Candy endeavors to understand the monochromatic ‘beige-world’ she landed in, while trying not to drool over the deliciously tempting pheromone-laden hunter who found her—neither being an easy task. The color deficient land/realm/whatever presents environs she finds mysterious to comprehend and leaves a plethora of questions unanswered. Such as gods and goddesses, and what dangers she will face with the ‘needing moon’?
When an accident scrambles Candy’s blonde-brain, it makes life even more puzzling than that distracting ‘Pheromone-Man’. Next thing Candy knows, she’s told she must embark on a journey, via horseback, with a group of muscular warriors. Now that scenario shouldn’t sound too awful, except Candy is a city girl and it’s going to be a lengthy outing. One that requires outdoorsy accommodations, such as camping (ick), and other unsavory things—likely creepy-crawly things!
During the convoluted journey there are times she’s forced to face daunting terrors, and at those times Thorne intervenes with strength (sigh worthy muscles) and surprising gentleness. But the next minute . . . he ignores her as if she’s ‘Typhoid-Candy’!
Thorne, the epitome of an alpha-male, harbors a past filled with pain and feelings of guilt that haunt him—as does the unique, troublesome, and beautiful, green-eyed female he found while hunting. Just when he thinks to have found a woman he could love, an accident robs her of all memory of him. At the same time, Thorne can no longer ignore the growing violence between two villages, and then there are those maundering murdering renegades . . . Now Thorne faces a new dilemma—what to do with Candy during his absence, fearing to leave her behind.
Except, can this delicate, clumsy, foreign, female endure a long grueling journey through the wilds? More essential, will she ever remember what they shared?
Ripple is a brutally honest dwarf and Thorne’s truest friend. As he tires of the games between the two would-be-lovers he tries to set them right, and finds the perfect night to do so. However, it’s the Moon Goddess’ domain to govern over men that very night, and Luna has her own agenda. During the telling of the fable of the ‘Blood Moon’, the Moon Goddess’ own sorrowful past is revealed. 

S. Yurvati began putting her thoughts and imaginings on paper during her childhood and continued through college years. After completing her Master’s grad at CSUN she was hit with that proverbial wrecking ball. BAM! Reality set in—she needed to make a dependable living and put her degree to work.

After three decades of working in the medical world, life struck her with a much bigger wrecking ball. This one was sufficiently jarring that her husband convinced her to retire and take the time to write. Admittedly, working in a science- based career left her little opportunity for the creativity of her wired left-handed brain.  As soon as she agreed to return to writing he immediately took her to an electronic store and told her to “choose a laptop”.

And that led to the beginning of Chroma Crossing Chronicles and the first book:  Blood Moon.

She has lived in eight different states from one end of the nation to the other, six with her husband. That doesn’t include the stint at Fort McClellan during the heat of summer without air-conditioning. That unpleasant Alabama experience was for Basic Training, as she was one of the last WACs (Women’s Army Corp) during the end of the Vietnam era.

Now she resides in Texas with the “love-of-her-life” husband of forty-one years.  She says he taught her to be young at heart and is her biggest fan in her pursuits (he’s probably doing cheerleading with pom-poms as you read this).

To say she has a love of cats is like saying squirrels love nuts (yes, the reference is intentional). The Yurvati’s share their large home with six cats, fondly referred to as the ‘herd’. You might consider that over the top and they agree, but argue the last two kittens were adopted during a weak moment. Her husband no doubt cringes when purchasing cat food and cat litter. However, the author says felines make very good book critics, always providing a high five with furry paws or commenting with purrs of encouragement.


This book picks up where one left off, Candy is now in this new world under the protection of a strange but handsome hunter who will mess up with her hormones. Being under the spell of the moon will not help their attraction, and Candy Thorne will fall for each other. Of course, to add action and drama to the story she loses her memory creating an odd atmosphere between them.

I enjoyed this one a bit more than part one. This time the story is focused on fewer characters and it's easier to follow. The action is more steady and as the first part, this one has a strong sexual and hot component. As before these elements add to the story and are ok.

In my opinion, book one and two could be from a totally different series, what is more, you could read book two without book one. It was an ok read.
