    Shiloh’s Secret (Out in Austin #2) by K.D. Ellis

    Release Date: November 16th I was surprised and delighted by this story. I was expecting something cliché and juicy – which is both what I got and what I wanted – but I wasn’t expecting the high quality writing or the well developed storyline. So, win! Synopsis: Shiloh is the spoiled, wild-child of a corporate big-wig that Gage Tucker – retired army vet and personal security officer – is assigned to protect against a stalker. Only, the Shiloh that Gage gets to know isn’t at all how the tabloids portray him. There’s a depth to him that isn’t instantly obvious what with his pink hair and makeup. And as Shiloh’s…

    Conquest (The Four Horsemen #1) by Sienna Moreau

    I was sucked into this read immediately. The storyline felt fresh and interesting and the characters were compelling. Also, it’s been a while since I’ve read about angels and demons. And just maybe that could also explain my instant infatuation. So. Conquest, the bad boy in this romance, is one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. And he is bad for real. As in, killing people, blood, gore and intestines bad. But, this is the weird part, I still rooted for him from the start. Raziel is an angel. Super sweet and kind. But he’s broken, with no power and no wings. Until he’s given a special mission on…

    Chrysalis (The Formicary #1) by S.E. Harmon

    Release date: September 1st This was an unexpected story. Maybe because this is a bit of a genre change for Harmon. It’s still MM, sure. But the romance is not center stage here. Instead, this is more of a suspense bordering on Sci-Fi. And it’s also a cliff-hanger. Sort of. Anyway, the story sucked me in right from the start. The MC wakes up in a hospital, having been shot in the head, and with no memory of what happened. Christian – Chris – has amnesia. There’s his doctor (boy)friend, Grayson, who appears to be keeping something from him. Chris doesn’t know who wants him dead. But he knows he can’t rely on anybody else to…

    Dark Summer by S.J. Coles

    Release Date: July 27th This is the sequel to Blood Winter – which I thought was rather amazing in a dark and despondent sort of way. Dark Summer has that same almost dystopian feel and it’s all because of Alec’s mood. He’s the sole narrator of the story and thus sets the tone for the entire book. He’s as anti-social as they come and broody as all get out. Borderline depressive actually. Synopsis: The story pretty much starts where Blood Winter ended. Terje has returned and they’re now trying to start a life together. In secret since no one can know that Terje is still alive. Alec’s and Terje’s differences…

    Wandering a Luminous Sea by Kayleigh Sky

    Release date: July 13th Merik, a merman who’s trying to solve a case with missing mer people, falls for the ex of the guy he suspects being behind all the disappearances. But when he’s started their relationship on a lie, can it ever become the real thing? But instead of coming clean to Jody, Merik’s choice is taken from him when some of the ex’s goons forces Merik back to the sea. How can Jody and Merik ever be together if Merik doesn’t have his legs?  Confession: I’m not particularly fond of mermen. I adore shifter books, but my taste is apparently quite conservative when it comes to what shapeshifting…

    Blood Winter by S.J. Coles

    This is not your average vampire read. In a very good way. I’d say it’s quite unique, with vampires being way more alien and predatory, ruled by their instincts to feed and survive. They’re not savages, but this depiction certainly adds more complexity to the story. Synopsis: Vampires, or heamophiles as they’re called here, have revealed themselves to the human public and tries to integrate into society. The main character, Alec, is somewhat of a recluse, staying away from social events and people in general. And he certainly never expected to attend a blood party where haemophile blood – the most exclusive drug available – is offered as the ultimate…

    Sorcerers Always Satisfy (Hidden Species #4) by Louisa Masters

    Release Date: June 3rd I’m so conflicted right now. And I have sooo many feelings. This is the last book in the series, meaning I have some grieving to get through. But there’s also some what-the-eff-happeneds that I need to come to terms with. Fortunately, there will be a spin-off. Which is a good thing. Apart from Percy’s story, I need Dustin’s. So bad. Synopsis: This is David’s story. The sorcerer who’s always kept to the background in the previous Hidden Species books. And it’s Caolan’s story, the elf who appeared from another dimension at the end of book 3. Caolan is immediately smitten with David, but David has a…

    King & Queen (RELIC #3) by Maz Maddox

    Release date: May 21st This was such a delightful read! Without a doubt the best RELIC so far. It had everything. Fun, engaging characters? Check. Fast paced action involving fossil thieves and dino-nappers? Check. Quirkiness galore, drag queens, and filthy shenanigans? Check, check, and check. Synopsis: As a member of RELIC, Royal the dinosaur shifter is sent to check out a new fossil excavation, in the event of a new shifter being awakened from hibernation. Blaise is visiting the site for entirely different reasons involving a camera and a live stream. Neither of them expected to stumble upon fossil thieves. Or being chased by an angry Giganotosaurus. It must be…

    Hijinks With a Hellhound (Hidden Species #3) by Louisa Masters

    Release Date: March 25th Man, I love Alistair! He’s by far the most fun of all of the Hidden Species characters (so far). Like a big kid that doesn’t know the meaning of personal boundaries but with a heart of gold. So, of course I loved this book! I’ve waited for Alistair’s story ever since I read Demons Do It Better last year. So, to the story. It picks up right where #2 left off. And Alistair is assigned to accompany Aidan, the species’ leader to investigate the community where they believe Tisch is hiding with his followers. But Alistair resents Aidan because of the way he handled Sam’s first…

    The Boy Who Loved Wicked by C.P. Harris

    Release Date: March 4 This book slayed me. It was all the emotions, all the time. The very first chapter made me cry. And it sort of spiralled from there. Feelings all over the place. Joy, sadness, anger and … is horny a feeling? Anyway. It was overwhelming. This is an M/M, age-gap, student-teacher story. And it’s beyond amazing. Phoenix Michaelson, book-worm introvert and philosophy aficionado, is just starting his senior year of high school. Sebastian Wicked is the new philosophy teacher, and as it turns out, Phoenix new neighbour. His married neighbour. Phoenix crushes hard. Wicked’s attractive, but for Phoenix he’s also (finally) someone that can understand him. It’s…
