Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller -5 Stars

Daughter of the Siren Queen
I am late to the party I know... but it is hard to get so many books read at once. I am sure all of you
book fanatics understand that :)
Daughter of the Siren Queen is the conclusion to Daughter of the Pirate King. If you liked the first book there is no way you are not going to love this one too!


Synopsis:
Alosa's mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he's under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father's justice.

When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen.

Sirens and Pirates and action. What is not to like? The story was as fast paced and entertaining as in the first book. It is action packed but also fun and full of heart.

"THE SOUND OF MY knife slitting across a throat feels much too loud in the darkness."

Alosa continues to be the same stubborn and courageous pirate she was in Daughter of the Pirate King. To me the main difference between her here and in the previous book is that here it becomes more obvious that Alosa don't really know how to be loved. Riden tries and she constantly pushes him away because of her fears and doubts. I thought that added to her character. 
She is a fierce pirate with a heart of gold. Her crew will always come first and she will be the worst and most brutal person there is if it means protecting them.

Riden... oh my! He is so open and honest. His kindness and care towards Alosa and the crew (even when she pushes him away) made him essential and wonderful to read. I love how much she needs him but genuinely can't for the longest time figure out why! It made me laugh and swoon.

This was an adorable YA read and I cannot recommend it enough.
If you, like me, are a little behind on your tbr, do put this one up the list!

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this
