Praise By Sara Cate

Picture shows book cover featuring an older gent in an unbuttoned suit. Writing reads "Praise by USA Today Bestselling Author Sara Cate".

The best way to review this book is to compare and contrast it to the modern classic Fifty Shades Of Grey. From a brief scan of the synopsis, you could be forgiven that these two books could be very much like, but trust me, they are not!

The Risk Paradox by Alan Ying and Doug Schneider

I jumped at the chance to read this book! I’m intrigued by what makes people tick. And at the same time I’m also fascinated by what attributes make for a life that’s truly memorable in society.

And when it comes to becoming a truly successful entrepreneur, (which is just one means of becoming memorable) risk taking seems to be an overarching factor. Hence the title’s appeal to me.

The Exiles by Ashley Saunders and Leslie Saunders

When I saw this book was up for grabs for just 99p on Kindle, I jumped at the chance to read it! I have read two other books by these authors a few years ago and was really impressed. When there are cliff hangers at the end of every chapter, you just have to keep reading!

Do You Remember by Freida McFadden

Seeing as I enjoyed this authors other books so much, choosing to read this book was a no brainer for me. In my view this is not Frieda’s best work, but I’m still quite the Frieda McFadden fan!

Raven’s Song By Charlie Nottingham

I don’t normally do book reviews on sequels in a trilogy because I like to keep my book review blog quite varied, but for this steamy paranormal romance, I was more than happy to make an exception!

If you want to see my review of the first book in this series, please click on this link.

The characters may be vampires, witches and fae, but in terms of personalities and emotions, they couldn’t be more human. And I just love them, from the feisty female protagonist, Rain, to all 3 of her lovers. There’s her best friend and Fae companion, Graham, who always puts Rain first, the vampire and doctor Ezra who couldn’t be more of a gentleman and sweetheart, and Warren, who is both vampire and necromancer, and loves to flirt (amongst other things!).

This book has plenty of humorous and witty moments that are sure to make you smile time and again.

This is a book that features poly-amory, and there are quite the variety of sex scenes, including M/F, and M/M.

As for the plot, I really didn’t know what to expect after the first book in the series, but suffice to say I already knew the characters were in danger. I don’t want to give too much away about the plot, but what I will say is that there are some overarching themes, namely poly-amory, boundaries, and necromancy.

If you don’t want to hear what I have to say about these sex scenes, please stop reading now.

Upgrade by Blake Crouch

This sci-fi novel from one of my favourite authors is frighteningly realistic. It’s set several years in the future, where human gene editing is a regular but illegal occurrence, and there’s a sequence of events that put the future of humanity in the protagonist’s hands. (No spoilers)
