Review: Ever After - Scarlett Haven

Ever After (East Raven Academy Book 1)

Review: Ever After - Book #1 East Raven Academy Series - Scarlett Haven - January 2017
I have been on a Scarlett Haven buzz since the end of last year and decided to make my way through her book list. I have to admit when I was reading Ever After, I found it very similar in parts to her book New Hope Academy. In Ever After, Phoenix's father has gone into politics and has just become a congressman. Her father has received threats, and Phoenix ended up kidnapped. The CIA has now been called in, and Phoenix is sent to East Raven Academy under the name Phoenix Underwood and is to stay there until the threats have stopped and the terrorists caught. At the Academy, Phoenix meets a good bunch of friends and lo and behold she becomes Miss Popularity, and all the boys are after her, this I have found is a common thread through Scarlett Haven's books. The other common thread is that the unattainable guy, the one who never dates is the one who is always interested in the main character. In East Raven Academy we have a love triangle between Phoenix, Estain Rinaldo and Brooks Remington. Can Phoenix stay safe or will the terrorists decide to kill anyone who stands in their way just to find her? Like the other books by Scarlett Haven, this one ended on a cliffhanger, and if her other series are anything to go by, I'm not sure how long exactly we will have to wait as I am still waiting on a couple of the next books to be released. If you love YA, Mysteries, Romance , Adventures then check out Ever After by Scarlett Haven as it has something for everyone within the pages.

Review: Royal Ruin - Jessica Peterson

Royal Ruin: A Second Chance Royal Romance (Flings With Kings)

Review: Royal Ruin - Book #1 Flings with Kings - Jessica Peterson - January 2018

Ten years ago Emily was studying abroad in the UK and Kit Thorne was her T.A, for the majority of the class they would fawn over Kit as he was a Prince but for Emily, she never treated him like a celebrity but more so as a friend. Kit liked that and had a crush on Emily, but she was off the market until Luke cheated on her and one thing led to another, and the pair had ravishing sex in the office. That day though would be the last each other saw of one another for the next ten years. Fast forward to now, Emily is an interior design owner with a love of history and castles and has been divorced from Luke for two years. Kit is now heir to throne and next in line to become King as his parents have passed away. The Royal Foundation are renovating an old building and a school and have a few Interior design companies up for the bid. One is Emily's company, and she is meeting with Jane - Kit's sister. One thing leads to another, and the pair is face to face, and of course, all the feelings come rushing back not to mention Jane has caused a bit of a scandal and now the Queen has come up with a crazy idea. Kit and Emily must have a fake engagement which will be so newsworthy that the public will forget about Jane's scandalous adventures. With her business on the line and Kit's family, the pair agrees reluctantly. What could go wrong as it's just a fake romance for the next three months, right? As you can guess Emily and Kit, start to fall head over heels, and the old Kit starts to return and yay, Emily's ex Luke finally gets what's coming to him. Will Kit give up his right to be King to marry Emily as she isn't exactly Queen material? Or is the Thorne's royalty in ruins? 
Find out in this romantic read of Royalty meets Commoner, one of my favorite tropes to read about. I am now looking forward to reading Book #2 in this series featuring Emily's friend and business partner Aly and Kit's brother Rob.

A Touch of Cinnamon by Bethany Lopez

(Three Sisters Catering, #2)

Add the book to Goodreads  


For the past year, Tasha has thrown herself into her catering business with her sisters, but she’s been keeping a secret. The hot, moody owner of Prime Beef is the man she left behind in college...the man she thought she’d never see again. He’s also the only man she’s ever loved. For the past year, Jericho Smythe has been waging a war with himself. Does he want to know why Natasha broke his heart and left without looking back? Hell yes. But he’s paralyzed by the glimpses he’s gotten of her at Three Sisters Catering and he hasn’t been ready for a confrontation.

Neither of them are content with their lives, but so much has happened since those stolen moments in college. Can the right amount of spice remind them of the love they once shared? A Touch of Cinnamon may be all they need to give Tasha and Jericho back the richness they’ve been lacking.

Someone pounded on the door behind me, causing me to jump and squeal in surprise. I turned to look at the still-closed door, and knew who I’d find on the other side.
I wiped my cheeks, put on a brave face, and opened the door.
“Hey,” I managed, even though Jericho stood before me, seething.
I took a step back, then another as he started toward me, slamming the door behind him as he let himself inside.
I tried to back farther away, but he was there, taking me in his arms and lowering his face to mine. I opened my mouth to protest, and that was all the invitation Jericho needed.
It was like coming home, his lips on mine, familiar and oh, so wonderful. I sighed and practically melted against him as he deepened the kiss. My arms went up and around his neck, to steady myself, and to finally feel him. His hair in my fingers, his chest against mine, and his soft, supple lips.
Everything … this was everything. He was everything.
Sweet and sensual quickly turned to unbridled passion as the years apart disappeared and there was only now.
His hands were working on my dress as mine were unbuttoning his shirt, both of us eager to be skin on skin. Everything was on fire, and I worried if I didn’t feel him, touch him, have him right then, I’d burn out.
Hurry,” I said, desperate for him.
“You’re driving me crazy,” Jericho muttered, and then, we were free.
