Having read this author's trilogy, I started following her hoping for more. Her writing style is incredible and places the reader in the room, along with Veronica's (Roni's) moods and her thoughts, of which there are many.

Although a strong, sassy woman, Veronica has put up with a lot in life and this makes her hold back some emotions that should maybe come out fighting, but held back emotions see her suffer even more.

I think female readers will be able to relate to a lot of what happens to Veronica, but this reader is male, and will admit openly to both laughing out loud, and crying quietly. There were places where I expected things to happen and they didn't, and places where I was completely taken off guard at the twists in the tale. I didn't want to reach the end of this 5* novel.

The only saving grace I have now is that the subtitle is A Twisted Fate Series, book 1. Roll on book 2 is all I have to say. 

Read this novel twice, unusual for me.

Yes, read it twice. The first time of reading, this incredible author took me on a ride that had so many twists and turns to the novel that I read it again, looking for clues that I may have missed, and there were lots.

Olivia has been thrown into a life where she is abandoned by all but her friends, and seeks both love and sexual gratification. The gratification comes first, then love from another, but things go wrong, and then wrong again, and when you think they can't get any worse, they do.

Not my first novel by this author (actually the fifth) and it won't be the last. If you want a steamy novel of intrigue and deep love, where the main character (and her friends) are open about their love lives, then this is the novel for you. Can't wait for the next in the series. 

For many, December is a month of planning, lists, purchase of presents, and thinking about the preparation of a Christmas family meal. 

There has to be a break in amongst all that headwork though. 

This book, a novella, His Christmas Bunny, could well provide that break, probably read in bed with a glass of something in the other hand. 

Follow the story of Logan, and his sister's friend Mia, as they work out their feelings for each other during the run up to Christmas. Keep the novella though, as it will probably be needed in future years. 

Those that enjoy Kermack's writing style, her wit and bedroom passion, will enjoy two other full length novels by her - Veronica and the excellent Olivia, both available on KU.       

Awoken - book 1 of 3.

When I read this novel, my review went like this;-

Do you know the feeling when you pick up a new book and wonder whether you will enjoy it or not? That feeling of "how far will I delve into this before making a reading decision either consciously or unconsciously?" Well, I read the preface, it gripped me between the eyeballs and I was there. I was Grace. Even though I am a male reader I was this female, sharing her emotions, feelings, dreams, nightmares and her craving for a certain male.

The fact that this skilled author has written the book in first person amplifies that feeling that you are in the book, what is happening to Grace is happening to you and, at one point, I physically shivered to move some (indescribable due to no-spoilers) beings away from my skin. Yes she has ups and downs and it's a roller coaster ride, mentally, so hang on tight because you are taking the ride with her.

It is a testament to this book and to the author, that before finishing book one I was already looking to make sure there was a follow-up, in readiness.

Well done Billie Jade for taking me to a different place outside of my own world, giving me a different gender (on the page only) and immersing me in a world of escapism.

A five star review without hesitation and a worry that six stars is not allowed.
Can't stop. Just downloaded Ascend which is book two in the Shadowed Veil Series and will then probably start nagging the author for book three

Ascend - book 2 of 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Need book three

I raved over book one, ignored my TBR pile and got book 2, Ascend, straight away. I was not disappointed.

Difficult to give a synopsis without spoilers but I was pleased that there were more characters, we got to know about those characters and the feelings of the main characters were drawn so well that you end this novel knowing them a whole lot better.

Towards the end of this novel I had memories of the Dennis Wheatley books I read as a teenager. I think it fair to say that the last quarter of the book was written so well that it took me in with all its troubles and I believed I was Grace and felt her every emotion, fear and anxiety.

A powerful ending that makes you have to get book three. I can't recommend this trilogy enough. Well done Billie Jade.
