Review: A Torrent of Deceit by Sarah M. Cradit

☆☆➹⁀☆ 4 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

Charlotte is now all-in on the war between her two families. She surrenders herself to her mother and the capricious, dangerous LaViolette clan, knowing she alone can save the people she loves. She must do it from within the belly of the beast, where she has no friends. No allies. Her magic means nothing in this den of witches.

Nicolas’ distance from Lauren has allowed her budding relationship with Ashley to blossom. Burying his love for her, he shifts all his focus to helping Charlotte from the outside, spending his days with one eye over his shoulder, and his nights sleepless. But his desperate plan is even more reckless than he realizes, and soon his old life and new one will intersect in irreversible ways.

As Charlotte finds herself deeper and deeper entrenched in the perilous world of the LaViolettes, with no hope or end in sight, she realizes, too late, that Harlowe LaViolette has always been steps ahead of her. With no word from her in months, Nicolas has no choice but to take a bold chance and change course—a move that will come at a tremendous cost for everyone they love.

Excerpt: Never Saw Me Coming by Vera Kurian

About the Book:

“I’ve never met someone like me, but when I do, eventually, I think it will be like two wolves meeting in the night, sniffing and recognizing a fellow hunter.”

Meet Chloe Sevre. Freshman honor student. Average-seeming, legging-wearing, hot girl next door…and diagnosed psychopath with an IQ of 135. Her hobbies include yogalates, frat parties, and plotting to kill Will Bachman, a childhood friend who grievously wronged her.

Now Chloe and six other students at John Adams College are part of an unusual clinical study that includes smartwatches to track their moods and movements, in exchange for free tuition. The study, led by a renowned psychiatrist, has inadvertently brought together some of the most dangerous minds who feel no guilt or fear. When one of the participants is found murdered, it becomes obvious they’re all in danger. Chloe goes from hunter to prey, and joins forces with two other psychopaths in the program to discover why they’re being targeted – if they could only trust each other.

Review: The Royals Next Door by Karina Halle

☆☆➹⁀☆ 3 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

Piper Evans: elementary school teacher by day–avid romance reader and anonymous podcaster by night. She has a quiet, reclusive life, taking care of her mother, who lives with mental illness, avoiding her regrettable ex, who bartends in town, and trying to make inroads in the tight-knit island community that still sees her, five years in, as an outsider. 
And she’s happy with how things are–really–until British royals rent the property next to hers and their brooding bodyguard decides she’s a security threat. Piper quickly realizes that one person’s fairy tale is an ordinary woman’s nightmare as a media frenzy takes over the island and each run-in with Harrison Cole is hotter and more confusing than the last. But beneath Harrison’s no-nonsense exterior lies a soft heart, one that could tempt a woman who’s sworn off attachments into believing in white knights. 

But when Piper finds herself smack in the middle of a royal scandal that rocks the island she’ll need more than Harrison’s strong arms to shield her–she’ll have to do a little rescuing herself. With careers, hearts, and friendships on the line, Piper and Harrison will have to decide what they’re willing to give up for a chance at their own happily ever after.
