Royal Reckoning by Emily Silver–Review

In a modern world, what happens to a royal that has bigger and better goals in mind? What happens when that royal is second in line for the crown? Is she able to fulfill her personal endeavors and do what makes her soul sing? Well, Royal Reckoning answers these questions and more in this meet cute fairytale romance.

Princess Eleanor has always felt love from her family, but not necessarily love for her future. When given the opportunity to have a royal holiday, she takes it and runs (literally).

The princess and the tattoo shop owner, sounds like a clichรฉ, but Ellie and Sean are anything but that. Within each other they find that missing piece to make the other whole. Ellie was looking to spread her wings and let her true self out for a bit, while Sean needed more fun and โ€˜stop and smell the rosesโ€™ moments in his life. He has been so busy with opening his shop and other things, that he has lost/forgotten what enjoying life was all about.

Royal Reckoning was a quick read, both pleasant with some fog your glasses moments. As with most fairytales there is a HEA that makes you smile!  

Thirteen Hours To You by Annie Emerson–Review

Sometimes in life, you are blessed to come across people that will enrich your lives and make you feel full. You can take this premise and apply it to Annie Emersonโ€™s debut duet, Thirteen Hours to You. This is the book that you never knew you needed but was everything you were waiting for.

Our main characters are Boo Radley Cooper and Meekai James Lannister. A story about two teenagers who are thirteen hours apart. Teenagers that have no knowledge of each other, yet somehow, fate works her magic and these two are pulled together and into each otherโ€™s orbit.

“Sometimes goodbyes lead to a second chance. If I see you again, it’ll mean that this goodbye was meant as a beginning, not an end. Fate, The first point of contact.”

~Meekai

Radley Cooper has had an extraordinarily horrible and sad upbringing. With the little breadcrumb trail that Annie leaves us, it is difficult not to feel for this girl and yet, salivating to know the whole story. I will say that nobody should have to go through what she went through, yet unfortunately, it happens every day in real life. **Beware of Triggers**

“His time would come. I’d make sure he paid for his sins. I’d deliver him personally. My kingdom come. My will be done. You might have me now, but I’ll destroy you later.”

~Radley

Meekai is the golden boy. He is the manwhore who is looking for his other piece. The one that when they come together just clicks into place. When Radley and Kai meet, they realize they have more in common than they thought and are slowly fixing/healing one another.

There is another subset of characters that brought a lot to the Radley/Meekai table. Gamma alone is worth every penny spent. She is utterly amazing, intuitive and everything I would like in a โ€˜Gammaโ€™. Becca, Brooks, Linc and Wyatt. The incredible secondary cast that keeps things rocking and rolling. These four are on another level of family/friendship, but most of all, D-R-A-M-A!! All their drama. Bring it on because I am loving the drama that surrounds this group. I live for this!!

This book has left me speechless. It is haunting, ethereal, roaring with humor, tender, the concept of a strong family unit, learning to love/trust not only yourself but another. It leaves you questioning, โ€˜can love truly win in the endโ€™? For a debut book, Thirteen Hours to You, is outstanding. There were so many times that I felt I was not only an outsider looking in, but I was truly engrained in the story and present for each scene. Annie Emerson wrote her heart out when writing this book. It will easily land on my โ€˜Best of 2021โ€™ list. Now, beware, there is a second book that is coming out soon (May), but the ending of book 1 leaves you wanting more, but not with a horribly bad cliffhanger. I am just so ready now to see how this ends!!

Congratulations Ms. Emerson on a book beautifully written. If I could, I would give you 10 โญ, but since I cannot, I will leave you 5โญ and a BIG welcome to the โ€˜best ofโ€™ list! Enjoy reading this book. Radley and Meekai will suck you in and pull you along for the ride.

“Where words fail, music speaks.”

In The Midst Of Chaos by CLymari–Review

Claudia had me hooked from the word โ€˜Goโ€™. I donโ€™t know how she does it, but I was salivating for more. I needed all the words, and I could not read it fast enough.

In The Midst of Chaos is the first book in her, โ€˜Crull Brothersโ€™ series. This book contained all things needed for a recipe of chaos. Darker romance, a bada@@ heroine, Nashton (๐Ÿ˜sigh), drama, angst, and mischief. Add on top of that there are ties between the Crulls and the Death Disciples, MC. All rolled together in a deliciously intriguing book.

Finley Primrose. Finley is the bada@@ heroine that I LOVE to see in a story. She knows her place in the family but is not going to let anyone tell her what to do. She is fierce, determined, and in love with a Crull brother. Which one is it though, as she is promised to Huxley in an arranged marriage. I wonder how well that is going to work out? ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Crull brothers are Nashton, Huxley, and Duncan. Nashton is the main hero, although all brothers play a part in this story. This story is truly about the Crull and Primrose families, so itโ€™s a treat that we get to read about all the characters involved.

In The Midst Of Chaos is that book that just pulls you in and takes you on a ride from one page to the next. I absolutely adored all aspects of ITMOC. The mystery, the intrigue, the highs and lows, the romance and rekindling of love, twists and turns, and the uncovering of some big โ€˜ole secrets that will test them as a family. I am so eager and anxious to find out what comes next, I feel like my heart is in my throat waiting with anticipation.
