Rating: 4 out of 5.

Patience Jordan has been falsely imprisoned. She has lost everything, her son, her money and any life she ever wanted for herself. Busick Strathmore, Duke of Repington has moved into her house and is the guardian to her son. Patience takes a job as nanny to her own son. –Isn’t this the best premise? I was so excited to receive an early copy of this book. I loved it. I loved the relationship and how it developed. I love Patience. I think she was an extremely strong woman.. especially with the rough hand she was given. 

The only downside of this book was the beginning was a little bit confusing. But everything gets explained and I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

Thank you netgalley for the early copy of this book!

Crushing it By Lorelei Parker

4 out of 5 Stars

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I loved this book! Sierra was so relatable to me. I am a huge gamer and as soon as I saw this book, I knew I had to have it! Sierra is a video game developer. She has to present her game at a conference and she has to overcome her fear of public speaking.

She enters a poetry slam contest to try to overcome her fear. My second hand embarrassment made me cringe so much. But this is where she meets a few main characters. A few I love and one I absolutely despise.

This book was a quick, very cute read. I loved the people and environment. Gaming nerds are my people. So I loved it! I also loved that the characters were not perfect. The only downside I had was Sierra staying with someone who was horrible to her. But she grows a lot throughout the book. So it all worked out in the end!

-Also you do not need to play video games to enjoy this book. Sierra is still a very relatable character!

The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett

4 out of 5 Stars

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I own alot of Jenn Bennett books but for whatever reason have never read them. I will be fixing that mistake soon! Because this book was phenomenal. The writing was so good. But what really stood out to me were the characters!

Theo and Huck were both so much fun to read about. I loved following them on their rescue mission. Where they learn about witches and curses and ghosts. And we find out who Theo’s ancestors are. Here’s the thing that I loved most; Huck was scared. He wasn’t running into danger. He kind of let Theo take the lead and he provided support and a great sense of humor. But I freaking adored that about the characters. They felt so real. I loved them. 

The only downside to this book was the ending.. I hated it. I was hoping for so much more. It was eft completely open. I have heard that the author would like to write a second book but that she doesn’t know if it’ll happen. So yeah.. I took off a whole star for the bad ending. I hate feeling unsatisfied after reading a book.. especially a book that I loved

Broken Dawn by Dianne Duvall

5 out of 5 Stars

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It’s no secret that I am a fan of the Immortal Guardians series. I love everything about it. I love the brooding immortal characters and the sassy women. I love the world with the vampires as the enemies. I love the friendships and the bonds the guardians have.

I was nervous going into this book because it is the first one that isn’t set in North Carolina and the group of immortal guardians there. But this book was fantastic. Nick is an immortal guardian in Texas. He has loved his neighbor for years but has never done anything about it because she has a child and he is an immortal who hunts vampires. Kayla has been crushing on her neighbor almost as long has he has loved her. Certain circumstances happen and they are thrown together and they finally admit to their feelings. A different kind of enemy pops up and forces some tough decisions.

This book defiantly had a slower pace than the last couple of books but it was a much needed breather. Nick and Kayla are cute together. And I loved how Nick let Kayla be herself and vise versa.

If you have read the previous books, you don’t need me to tell you to read this. Seth and a few of the NC guardians show up and it was nice to see them as backup characters. I love them but I love that we are getting some fresh guardians!

Broken Dawn
Book #10 Immortal Guardians
By Dianne Duvall

June 16, 2020

Delve into an exciting new stand-alone novel in New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall’s “fast-paced and humorous” (Publishers Weekly), “utterly addictive” (RT Book Reviews) Immortal Guardians series.

Nick Belanger can’t stop thinking about the single mother who lives next door. She’s smart. She’s funny. She’s so beautiful he can’t stare at her too long for fear his eyes will start to glow. But Kayla thinks he’s just an ordinary guy who works in security. Finding out he instead is a powerful immortal warrior who hunts and slays psychotic vampires for a living may not go over well, particularly since she has a daughter she doesn’t want to endanger.

Kayla Dorman can keep neither her gaze nor her thoughts from straying to the man next door. Who can blame her really? He is the epitome of tall, dark, and handsome with smart, charming, and honorable thrown in. He’s also a few years younger than her and surely would not be interested in a single mom who hasn’t dated since her divorce. At least that’s what she thinks until an accident nearly takes her life and Nick risks all to save her.

The dynamics of their relationship swiftly change. The friendship they’ve developed over the years deepens into love as the two spend every minute they can together, laughing and teasing, never suspecting a threat may lurk in the shadows. But that threat soon strikes, making it clear that Nick is the target and his enemy doesn’t care if Kayla gets caught in the cross fire. Though Kayla bravely rises to the occasion and is determined to do whatever it takes to help Nick defeat his enemy, Nick is terrified of losing her. Can he identify and eliminate his new nemesis before the man takes everything from him?
