Five fiery stars for The Night She Fell
Hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned…or that of a woman when you mess with her family.
Coralena del Prado is an easy-going, light-hearted young woman with a growing skill, not only to cook but to wield spells in her cooking, as her mother does. These “gifted” women own a bustling restaurant in Greenwich using their magic to keep customers coming back for more with their decadently delicious treats. Cori’s gift is slow to come though making her doubt her abilities and she longs for a life that doesn’t revolve around keeping NYC’s elite happy. (I mean, we can all relate, right?)
Enter Hayden Colburn, who is simply irresistible. He’s the handsome and rich son of said elite and the brother to Bronte, one of Cori’s fellow classmates who comes in all the time to beguile—and bedevil—Cori with her lavish lifestyle. Cori’s mother and father used to work for the Colburns, so they are no strangers to her. Incidentally, Cori gets invited to Bronte’s birthday party and when Bronte fails to deliver, it’s Hayden who saves the day.
Not only does he get Cori and her friend Monica into one of the hottest clubs in NYC, Inferno (such a great name for a club) he’s apt to take Cori under his wing, show her around, and have her all wrapped up in his charms by night’s end.
But Cori is unknowingly about to get herself involved in a deep, dark family secret that will literally open Pandora’s box and change her life, and heart, forever.
This book has it all: romance, intrigue, drama, mystery, horror, paranormal, action, and suspense. Think Romeo and Juliet meets Carrie meets The Dark Phoenix that’s what you’ll find on these pages. An intricately woven tale of incredible power and the price that comes with it.
Jennifer Soucy isn't one to disappoint. Her writing is descriptive, fulfilling, and engaging. Be sure you follow her because this lady is up and coming in the world of horror!!

5 "beaching" stars for Moontide
What’s not to love about a gorgeous sea captain, enchanting Atlantis, and an unsuspecting female who’s searching for her friend when she gets caught up in mystical forces?
I loved that this book started off with a flashback to Atlantis. I was immediately hooked! From there it bounced to many POVs, which as a fantasy reader I absolutely LOVE. (Give me ALL the POVs!!) There was so much going on and I kept turning the pages to find out what would happen next.
It was funny, exciting, and had me swooning!
Sweet Cindy Pierce, who’s always been plagued with vivid dreams, meets dashing Captain Ronan Garring in Miami while searching for her missing friend, Kay, at a hot Miami nightclub. The look of this handsome stranger is enticing, otherworldly even, despite that he doesn’t act or talk like a modern-day man; something strange is going on here. Little does Cindy know that Ronan has until sunrise to get back to the Tides portal and his island, or he’ll die. But she soon sees there’s something unbelievable happening that she can neither explain nor understand. She will be literally swept away by romance, action… and a prophecy as old as time itself.
This was such a great beach read with tropical locales, conspiracy, romance, fantasy, and action. It had a Pirates of the Caribbean meets Men In Black meets Ghost Busters meets Clash of the Titans vibe. It literally had it all: sex, laughs, adventure, and enchantment.
I loved this book and would highly recommend to any and all lovers of fantasy romance!
(I'm so glad I got the entire series in paperback :-D I'll be digging into book 2 very soon!)
