Resting Witch Face Stay a Spell #5 by Juliette Cross

Blurb:

  • Second chance romance
  • Vampire masquerade ball
  • Only one bed
  • Mutual pining
  • Forced Proximity

Twelve years ago, Jules Savoie ended her relationship with the vampire overlord of New Orleans, Ruben Dubois. For good reasons. A woman in power must often make sacrifices to protect others. She knows the truth of it down to her aching heart.

When Ruben watches his best friend Devraj get married, a stinging realization hits him hard…he’s done waiting. They say time heals all wounds. In this case, it merely sharpened the pain and made one fact crystal clear. Jules Savoie is his soulmate, and nothing would keep her from him. Not anymore.

Forced to work side by side to fight for the werewolf cause, they campaign together at covens from New Orleans to London. The reignited spark burns hotter than ever before. But when a power-hungry vampire sets his predatory sights on Jules, will their love be strong enough against black magic? Or will he lose her again? And this time, maybe…for good. 

What is not to love about this series?

It is such a lighthearted wonderful paranormal romance series. The perfect introduction to the genre and the perfect change of pace to those that read the heavier ones.

I would not recommend reading this one without having read the previous books in this series, you will miss some important bits, starting with the main reason Jules and Ruben are travelling together. Much of this book focuses on that parallel story, so it won't read as fluidly without it.

That thought aside, this is another fantastic book by the lovely Juliette Cross. For very personal reasons book 4 wasn't for me, so I was ecstatic and super happy when by page 20 I already knew I was going to love this one.

Ruben was a delight. I loved his passion, his determination, his possessiveness, and most of all his devotion and loyalty. There are devoted alpha males in a lot of romance books, but one as loyal as Ruben? Nope. Not often at all. I won't spoil by saying what exactly makes me say that, but it took me by surprise. 

Jules is Jules? LOL I don't know what to say really, I always liked her, but she was never a favorite. Which is funny because I know she (and Ruben) are the favorite to many of Juliette's readers, if is not most. Jules is a very strong character, sure of herself, and deserving of her title. Which brings us to the plot as a whole...

Another reviewer described it "Witches against bigotry" and I thought that was an absolutely delightful and 100% accurate way to describe it. Werewolves deserve a seat at the table! And since they are my favorite paranormal creature, I don't care if this is fiction or not, GO WEREWOLVES LOL

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

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

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
