Sancte Diaboli (book 1) by Amo Jones

Sancte Diaboli was ingrained into my brain and I could not wait to read it. This was
Bran Bran’s book with TEKC. He was back in all his quietness, aloofness, and piercing’s.

So, I have a question. How many of you are into puzzles? I’m thinking the 5,000 pieces and maybe higher. Sancte Diaboli is akin to doing a mammoth puzzle with small pieces. Amo is so good at her writing, that she inadvertently will drop those teeny tiny breadcrumbs throughout the whole book. The funny thing is these little nuggets will never directly lead you to the ending but keep you on the path that you need to focus on. She is so good at this that she’s bad😈. It’s wicked torture to keep us on the hook for the next book, but I swear she loves it.

Now, I knew before going in that there was a cliffhanger, so I thought I was semi-prepared. Well, thank goodness I wasn’t betting money over the cliffhanger, because all I could think of was, huh…whoa…OMFG! So much so that I read the ending four times and I was still shook!! That cliffhanger, you will never see coming! I had a SERIOUS BOOK HANGOVER for four days afterward. I was scheduled to start another book, but I couldn’t do it! I kept wandering around and replaying all the scenarios and situations in my head.

Readers have dubbed Amo as ‘Queen’ for a reason. She is a master at her craft. I was amazed, stunned, flabbergasted, and knocked completely off my axis after reading Sancte Diaboli. How does she take such simple individual words, yet meld them together perfectly to form an utterly amazing, multi-layered storyline with specific plot points, timelines, and consistent writing style? I don’t know, but I will gladly step forward to read any book she writes!! Congratulations, Queen Amo! Another book was exceedingly written!

***Side note: Ms. Jones is a dark romance writer!!! So, if this scares you, Sancte Diablo my not be for you, but if you’re up for it, you might learn a thing or two about ladders!***

Riot Hearts by Livy North–Review

Riot Hearts by Livy North

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It is hard to imagine that this is Livy’s debut novel. She has been able to incorporate so many feelings and emotions from beginning to almost end. Yep, it ends on a cliffy. A cliffy that left me immediately shook and questioning and creating different conspiracy theories.

There are a lot of moving pieces throughout, including who is the good guy/bad guy, who can you trust, along with what is a nineteen-year-old supposed to do now? Luckily, Livy has written some strong-willed characters. This is a good thing as they will need to be able to handle all the mystery, intrigue, suspense, sexual chemistry, drama and angst.

All I have to say is, Livy, please take pity on your readers and do not leave us hanging forever! 😉❣
