Witches Get Stitches (Stay a Spell #3) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Witches Get Stitches by Juliette Cross

I don't think Juliette Cross has the power to disappoint me. And that sunnies, is a great thing. There is nothing better than going into a book knowing with absolute certainty that you will love it. 

Book 3 in the Stay a Spell series was just as charming, mesmerizing, romantic, and steamy as the previous books. Is it my favorite of the 3? Close, very close, but no. Mateo my man still tops the cake. And his appearances in this book just fermented that. I loved how many glimpses we got of him and the grims. Their books cannot come soon enough. I know you are all waiting for Jules' book. Well, I'm waiting for my grims, and I sure hope they have a darker edge to them. All that being said, if you are new to this series go ahead! This can easily be read as a stand alone. I would recommend you read them all, but I am obsessed with Juliette Cross...

Violet was...interesting. During the first 40% of the book I wanted to bring her out of the pages and punch her for being blind and stubborn. But once she realizes she is being stupid she is pretty good about admitting it and becomes a very likable character. My least favorite of the sisters so far (sorry Juliette) but a nice, lovable character nonetheless.

Now, Nico was a force of nature. The only reason I prefer Mateo to him is that Mateo's inner wolf has my heart. 

So, how to describe Nico?

A Sequoia. Yes, you read that correct. A Sequoia. 

Unique in size and character, strong in presence and in essence, silent and noble, unmoving but not unchanging, patient, enduring...

That my friends, is Nico. He was always there. Silently and patiently waiting for silly Violet. With a presence larger than life but also unchanging and enduring in his feelings and of all her rejections. A Sequoia. An odd comparison to some, but one that makes perfect sense to me. Because let's also add to the list, and that also applies to both Nico and the Sequoia: beautiful, stunning, majestic! :) 

Not a 5, cause slow burn isn't my thing and Violet took forever. But a solid 4.5 out of 5!

Fabulous as always.

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

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an
