Dragon Fire (Vale of Stars #3) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Adult Content

I absolutely love Juliette Cross and it is always a great day when I get to read one of her books.

Dragon Fire is book 3 in the Vale of Star series and focuses on Kieran and Liana. Kieran is Kol's twin brother, the bookish love of my life (Book #1). So although I liked Kieran, you can all have his hot ass! In other words: "Kol still mine, back the f*** off!" 

I suppose now that the important warning is out of the way we can get on with the Blurb and Review :)

Blurb: 
A taste of heaven may drag him to hell...

Wounded, with a target still on his back, Kieren Moonring has been hiding in the last place his Morgon enemies might find him. In the human convent on the southern shores of Primus, his body heals quickly, but his soul is broken. 

While Sister Liana tends to the recovering Morgon man hiding in their convent, she can't stop or disguise her growing attraction. What disturbs her more is that he begins to uncover her past that is best kept buried. 
Kieren fears his old enemies will find him, and then Liana. When his greatest fear comes true and she becomes their next mark...bloody hell, if he won’t murder the whole world to keep her safe.


4 Stars 

Let's start with my favorite part about Dragon Fire: Kol was there! hehehe 
Sorry guys, just like I couldn't talk about Hardest Fall without talking about Dom from Darkest Heart (another series by the fab Juliette), I can't here talk about this book without mentioning Kol a million times. So.... read another review if that is gonna bother ya! Seriously.... 🙈
Where were we? Ah... my favorite part! 
I need to find it and copy it here.... hold that thought ('cause you all here reading as type of-course...)! 

Ah.. found it (in case you wondering took me almost 10 minutes).

This is Moira and Jessen talking about the love of my life:
"Is there ever a time he's not frowning?" asked Jessen 
obs- this was after a long paragraph where Moira explained the meaning of the many of Kol's frowny expressions. Hilarious!!
"Oh yes. When we're having sex." She paused thoughtfully. "Or when I give him a blow job." I gasped and Jessen laughed. "He smiles a lot when I give him a blow job." Moira winked.
I laughed with them....
Me too Liana, me too...

I absolutely adore all the other female characters and their banter with Liana was just great. They made her fell welcome. 

Now to Kieran...
What an amazing guy! Trustworthy, loyal, intelligent, hot... What is not to like right?
He was also adorable and stupid. Adorable by trying to make things right by Liana, stupid for not realizing how much she wanted him from the gecko.

Liana was nice. A Sister of Light not by choice but by need. I didn't dislike her, but she is my least favorite heroine in the series. I am sitting here trying to think of a strong word to describe her and can't come up with anything. I guess that is my issue with her, she was just nice.... 

The way their relationship progressed was done really well. They had an immense amount of chemistry but also had a nice friendship. I think they compliment each other rather nicely. Kieran is this nice, trustworthy, diplomatic and understanding guy that can be strong and protective when needed. And Liana needs someone to trust and cherish like that. Someone like Kol would just scare the crap out of her! 

The only negative is Liana's past. I selfishly couldn't care less about all the stories about her father. Yup, I wanted to know why she became a sister, so that was needed. And how she knew the guys that helped them escape... but that is it. All the other inner dialogue or even chats with Kieran about her dad bored me. I might even have skipped some.... 

Anyway... I would read Juliette's shopping list. So all in all it was FANTASTIC!!! Go Read!

Release Date: April 30th

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
