Review of 2017 Top Reads

top reads 2017

It's been a bit of a stressful year personally So I that's meant my reading and blogging took a back seat to my family's needs. But the thing about reading books is that for a while you can forget about the problems you are facing and escape into the world's created by authors.

 My favourite paranormal authors had books out this year. Nalini Singh has been busy this year with two of the books making this top read 2017 list. 

Silver Silence was a book I had been eagerly awaiting. It didn't disappoint, alpha bears oh my!!! 

Rachel M Raithby's Wolf Sight, is probably my favourite book of the year, I know that I will probably be seen as biased, but I don't care, so what if I had some input into the way it looks.   Yes my husband Rob  @creationinspire created it with artistic direction from both myself and Rachel, and the formatting is our best yet, I loved designing the illustrations for the headings and the wolf on the front page,   but the main reason this books my top pick is because the storyline is awesome, Rachel has been dealing with a lot of upheavals personally,  finding herself pregnant and a single parent mid way through the year is enough to scupper most people's creativity,  so to get a book out during this amazing in itself, but the writing and storyline, after reading the book I'd say it's her best yet! I loved Anna and Cages story, and I can't wait for the next New Dawn Novel. 

My favourite SEAL series was by Caitlyn O'Leary it's a hard decision between any of them as the series is awesome and I could re-read them all tomorrow and not think it a waste of time. 

There was also a biography that made this list, I don't usually get into non-fiction books but Garrett McNamara's life is more interesting than fiction and I have always loved the sea. If you like reading interesting life stories then give this a go. 

I could go on, and write a bit about each book but it would make a rather long post so click on this link if you'd like to get to Goodreads and read each review (or search my blog as there individual reviews on here also. 

I'll finish at my current read @Sheila Kells His Family this is the Patriarch of the Hamilton families book and so far it is shaping up to be the first on the top read 2018 list. I hope all who read/follow my blog on whichever platform have a great #NewYearEve and that 2018 brings you all that you need. I don't want much (roof over my head, a job so I can keep the first and my family to be safe and happy) 

All the Best Kat 💜

Jenni's Review of Power Struggle by Paige Fieldsted @paigefieldsted

I gave up on love twenty years ago. These days I only want hot sex. Jameson Beck is experienced, confident, and sinfully sexy— a perfect distraction from the murder trial taking over my life. But now I’m expected to work with him every day and ignore his never-ending advances? Yeah, right. I can’t keep my distance, not even with Jameson threatening everything I’ve worked for over the past ten years. And he's making me want the very thing I'd sworn off: love. 
Olivia Roberts, the blonde bombshell. She’s hot, feisty, and isn’t afraid to talk dirty. She fights me at every turn, but that only makes me want her more. Too bad she’s the one person standing between me and the partnership I’d do anything to get. Olivia makes me question it all. I thought my career was enough. I thought I didn’t need love. But now I don’t think I can live without it. Or her.

  Power StrugglePower Struggle by Paige Fieldsted
JENNIS rating: 5 of 5 stars

***I voluntarily reviewed this book for Katsindiebookblog, and I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book.*** Power Struggle was a very sexy, enlightening, and great read. Olivia has worked her butt off in school and at work, to become a partner in one of the best Law Offices in NY. She has the drive and skills to make it possible. However, in doing so, she has pretty much given up on any possibility of love. Love has no space and time in her busy schedule.
Jameson is one of the best Defense Attorneys in LA. While relocating to NY for a new scene, he is promised by his new bosses to position of new partnership. Jameson had love once but lost it because of his work. He just does what he does best, screw and work.
In light of a huge profile case, Olivia and Jameson meet, on some very interesting terms I might add! The two have to work together to prove a man innocent of his crimes. Can these two stubborn, hard working people come together to prove him innocent? Or will both of their egos get in the way of their job?
This was a very great read from the beginning. You get sucked in immediately and have to fight to put it down. The story is highly addicting and a very intense read. Unfortunately, this story will show that certain aspects of life will always be a man’s world, no matter how hard you work your butt off, but in the end, it will always pay off! Get ready to have your mind blown by Jameson’s sexiness and Olivia’s stubbornness. They are great together, once they overcome the obstacles! Such a great read, and I look forward to more from this author!

I’m Paige, a writer living in Utah with my husband, toddler Mason and pug Willy. I’ve been a writer nearly my whole life. My grandma told me that after I would visit as a little girl she would find half written stories on scraps of paper all over the house. My love for writing led me to pursue a career in journalism where I covered everything from sports to crime and courts. I loved being a reporter, writing every day and telling stories, but didn't love the late nights and stressful deadlines, so I tweaked my career path and now work as a communications specialist in Salt Lake City. I’ve wanted to publish a book for as long as I can remember and I’m so excited to have finally made the dream into a reality.
