Synopsis:

In a city covered in ice and ruin, a group of magicians face off in a daring game of magical feats to find the next headliner of the Conquering Circus, only to find themselves under the threat of an unseen danger striking behind the scenes.

As each act becomes more and more risky and the number of missing magicians piles up, three are forced to reckon with their secrets before the darkness comes for them next.

The Star: Kallia, a powerful showgirl out to prove she’s the best no matter the cost

The Master: Jack, the enigmatic keeper of the club, and more than one lie told

The Magician: Demarco, the brooding judge with a dark past he can no longer hide

Where Dreams Descend is the startling and romantic first book in Janella Angeles’ debut Kingdom of Cards fantasy duology where magic is both celebrated and feared, and no heart is left unscathed.


ARC REVIEW:

🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁

THIS IS A SPOILER FREE REVIEW. MY SPOILER FILLED REVIEW WILL BE POSTED SOON

This book was nothing like I thought it was going to be. I didn’t have a lot of expectations going into it because I didn’t know much about the story itself. I had heard that this book was supposedly a Phantom of the Opera and Moulin Rouge mashup, but I haven’t seen either one of those so I was really in the dark on what this story was going to be about. I think that ultimately served me very well because I was completely in the dark on where the story was going to go and that made the plot twists that much more shocking.

This ultimately ended up being a really solid read for me. This universe and the storyline are both very and truly unique. I also found a lot of the characters to be likeable and interesting. With the said, I did have some issues with the main character, Kallia. She just wasn’t that relatable or my cup of tea.

I definitely have a lot of theories for the next installment, but I think all of those theories are probably going to be turned on their heads based on this book.

*I received an ARC copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

RELEASE BLAST (+ARC Review): Healing Storms by Lynn Burke

T2 Healing Storms Lynn Burke

Happy Book Birthday to this amazing book! It deserves all of the stars and more and I’m so happy it’s out in the world today.


BLURB:

Not all storms bring fear. Some cleanse wounds and heal souls.

One stormy night breaks Kane Austin. Moving deeper into the Pennsylvania woods doesn’t heal the heartache of his tragic loss, nor does it offer the peace he longs for. He certainly can’t bear the thought of loving again.

Charley Woodhill blames himself for his sister’s and niece’s deaths. He feels he doesn’t deserve Kane’s forgiveness, and especially not his love, but that doesn’t keep him from watching over his best friend from afar, coveting what he can never have.

Determined to live a quiet life, Jill Walters isn’t looking for a man or complications. But flames of desire bright as a lightning strike can’t be denied, and the consequences of falling for not just one but two men shakes her unstable foundation.

Will Kane let go of the ghosts from his past? Can Charley find the strength to share the man he’s longed for since childhood? Or will Jill choose for them and flee to keep the two men safe?


ARC Review:

🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁

This book gave me everything I wanted and sooooo much more. I’ve always loved menage romances, but MMF can be a hit or miss for me depending on how the relationships between all of the characters are portrayed. This book handled those so well and I was invested in every little detail in the relationships between these three. Their stories ripped my heart out and made it so happy at the same time. I could not get enough of them and this story could have been a 500 more pages and I would have kept reading!

TO: Alex Vega

FROM: Emilia Stiles

SUBJECT: Hello

 

Dear Mr. Vega,

I felt it necessary to follow up on today’s meeting, since we weren’t able to speak candidly in front of your son.

I was shocked to discover that you are Ryder’s dad. Given that your ex-wife will be out of the country for a while and you are currently his primary caregiver, I’m sure you understand why we need to establish boundaries and etiquette. I think it would be best if we just pretend that we met in person for the first time today.

Your son is a very bright (flirtatious and talkative) student and since his education is a top priority for both of us, I hope I can count on you to respectfully refrain from grinning at me, using that sexy tone of voice, and undressing me with your annoyingly beautiful brown eyes if we should happen to interact with each other again in the future.

Thanks so much,

Miss Stiles

 

TO: Emilia Stiles

FROM: Alex Vega

SUBJECT: Re: Well, hello again…

 

Dear Miss Stiles,

Great to hear from you. My son’s education is indeed a top priority. As such, I respectfully agree to refrain from doing all of the aforementioned things.

However, I can’t promise to stop thinking about that kiss at the bar this summer. I’ve been thinking about it for the past month. It’s interesting how humorless and uptight you are about my son’s totally awesome personality, given that I have personally witnessed just how flirtatious and talkative you yourself can be when mildly intoxicated.

You’re so welcome,

Alex

P.S. I volunteered to be a chaperone for your next field trip. See you then.

I’d only wanted one kiss.
One kiss, under the dark of night, in a city where no one knew us.

But, it didn’t stop at one kiss.
And now we are running full speed down a road with no intention of stopping.
His touch disarms me.
His kiss revives me.
But, our love, could destroy me.

Back To Shore by Taylor Danae Colbert is LIVE!


BLURB:

When I was sixteen, I was madly in love with Ryder Casey.
He was kind, he was loving, he was everything.
Then he killed my twin brother, the night before our seventeenth birthday.
Accident or not, he crushed me in more ways than one. So I turned him away and never looked back. I haven’t forgotten. And I certainly haven’t forgiven.
Now, I’m sort of a hot mess. I’m in between jobs, essentially homeless, and newly divorced.
But as I try to put the pieces of my life back together, I know that Ryder’s the one that’s missing. I have to find him, and I have to forgive him.
And when I do, I learn that he’s not exactly living the easiest life. He needs someone. He needs me.
Despite everything, I know I should be there for him. But doing that means I’ll have to put our past behind us.
And I’ll have to try my hardest not to fall back in love with the man who broke my heart beyond repair.


🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁

I really liked this book. It gave me a lot of the emotional turmoil I went into it for (without going too far) and I ultimately fell in love with this couple and their story which is exactly what I wanted.
