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.

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

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po
