Bewitched by Christmas by S.R. Mitchell *Randi's Review*

Bewitched by Christmas♡*`°•
By Author S.R. Mitchell

Love was always just out of reach for Allie. The fact that she has to hide a part of herself, her magical side, does not help.
She'd accepted the fact that maybe she would not find Mister Right, but her witchy Aunt Margret has not given up hope.
Little does she know; her Aunt has cast a spell for her soul mate to find his way to her. He's everything she finds attractive in a man and she's everything he thinks unattainable in a woman.
There is just one catch... someone is after him. Someone wants him dead and Allie finds herself thrown in the mix.
Will they find love for Christmas?


Amazon UK:



Bewitched By Christmas by S.R.Mitchell was a great book. I got the chance to read it in exchange for an honest review and thankfully I jumped at the chance.

This story is about a young witch named Allie, and the young man she meets named Brock.

Without her knowledge, Allie's aunt and her friend cast a spell to help Allie find her soulmate. When Brock gets in an accident in front of Allies house right before a bog snow storm hits, it seems like the spell worked, but can Allie get past old trust issues and let him in on the truth about her powers, or is the idea of a soulmate too good to be true?

This was a quick and fun read. Even though there was a fair amount of drama in this story the characters made it seem like everything was going to be ok just because they willed it to be so.

Through all the drama and the suspense, there's the running theme of Christmas. From the lights decorating every surface, to the Christmas themed leggings Allie loved to wearing, and as someone who loves loves loves Christmas herself, I found this charming. It made the story seem a little more real and relatable for me.

Now I don't really read a lot about witches, so I'm not claiming to be an expert by any means, but as someone who just loves to read books, this one was pretty great.
On one hand the whole concept of these two meeting and falling for each other seemed a little fast, but on the other hand you have to remember that they're supposed to be soul mates so what's to stop them from falling fast and hard? One of the things that I loved about this book was the way it reminded me of the old movie Practical Magic. I've always loved that movie so to find a book that was just as entertaining, if not more so, was a great find. I'm very happy I got to read this book and I look forward to reading more from this author.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

On my fourteenth birthday, I was promised to a very wealthy man… A domineering man. A powerful man. On that day, the first of two transactions were made with my very unloving parents. I became his possession. Something to own. Something to keep. An object intended only for his desire, his pleasure, and his … indulgence. Although promised to this man, I at least remained safe … untouched … pure. I was to be his and his alone. On my eighteenth birthday, the second transaction took place. I escaped… But he came for me. Now, I’m his. He owns my body and my soul. And, as if all of that wasn’t enough, he wants to own my heart too. I’m trying to resist him—trying to fight that irresistible monster inside of him. But, as with everything else in my life, nothing is ever that easy. Warning: Contains graphic scenes with sexual assault content. Please proceed with caution.

One injury - a freaking broken rib.

That's all it took to send life into a tailspin at the age of sixteen. After getting a heart transplant, I knew that I could never take life or my talents for granted - I was going to be the best of the best. Boxing consumed my life and I was on track for greatness.

Everything was perfect until I woke up one morning, ten years after my surgery with an overwhelming need to meet her - the girl whose father's heart beat in my chest.

Little did I know that she was going to save me all over again.

*Release* Melody Of Us by A.L. Wood


 To Whom It May Concern,

This book was written for you. 

It’s our story. Anson’s and mine. 
You see, we met when we were five. 
I moved in next door. He wrote me a letter…
Asking me to leave. 
I couldn’t.
Through notes on a page, Anson became my best friend. 
We’ve spent almost our entire lives loving each other.
We never said the words.
But now… Now he’s said it. 
No more secrets.
No more lies.
Can forgiveness be given?
I need your help, I need your advice. 
Read our story.

Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige *Tour*


Dirty Filthy Rich Men, an all-new sexy, contemporary romance from NYT Bestseller Laurelin Paige is available now!!!


Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige Genre: Contemporary Romance

From NYT Bestselling author Laurelin Paige, discover a whole new world filled with sex, love, power, romance and dirty, filthy rich men.
When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.
I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.
And then what it was like to lose it.
Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.
This time, I’m ready. I've been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.
But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.


After she was gone, I walked over to the windows and drank in the scene. The Town Center was high enough that it had an unblocked view of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and beyond. Giddiness surged through me, starting like a pinprick at my center and moving out through my veins in all directions until even my fingers and toes felt warm. I was really here. I made it. It wasn’t the way I thought it would be, but in the end, it still came out of my time at Harvard. I’d always known that connections made the difference in a career, and here I was. Finally. At the top of the world, looking out. I couldn’t stop grinning. “It’s incredible, isn’t it?” a male voice came from behind me. Still smiling, I glanced up and caught his reflection in the window. And everything disappeared. The world that had buzzed below, the beautiful scene, the excitement that had unfurled through my body—all of it evaporated and all that existed in its place was a pale, hollow shell of myself and the man in the perfectly tailored suit behind me. I turned to look at him directly. Our gazes smashed together, and my legs nearly fell out from under me. “Donovan,” I rasped. It was a miracle that I managed to find enough voice to say that much. And there was so much more that had to be said. So much more that I hadn’t prepared for. Which was ridiculous since I’d talked to him so many times in my head over the years, practiced so many conversations, but never did he show up out of the blue looking so dastardly handsome in a dark gray three-piece suit, his face rugged with scruff, his eyes hazel and earnest despite the playful smirk on his lips. I opened my mouth to say something, but nothing came out. I wasn’t even sure how to breathe anymore. He broke our gaze to nod out the window at the skyline, walking toward me as he said, “I’m sure you found the Empire.” Though his focus was now on the scenery, I didn’t take my eyes off him as he approached. He didn’t stop until he was right beside me. So close our shoulders would touch if I coughed. Tension ran off him like foam spilling over from a mug of beer. Good tension. Bad tension. I wasn’t sure if there was a difference when it came to Donovan. Which was why I was screwed if he was here. Why the hell was he here? “I thought you were in Tokyo.” I couldn’t stop staring at him. He’d gotten more refined with age, and rougher at the same time. His hair was short and his curls gone, giving him a polished look he lacked before. The lines by his eyes were more defined and his expression seemed harder than I’d remembered. It made him sexier. As if he was a man who needed to be sexier than the one I knew. “I came back two months ago,” he said offhandedly. “That’s it right there.” He leaned his face in close to mine as he pointed to the famous structure. “Do you see it?” Fuck if I cared about the Empire. I was in Donovan Kincaid’s orbit. What else was there in the world? DFRM AD TWO

Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning by Mary Catherine Gebhard *REVIEW*

Title: Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning
Hate Story Duet #1
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2017


Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.

He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.

The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters.

Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.


Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning by Mary Catherine Gebhard is an enchanting and bewitching story that everyone is going to fall in love with. I was hooked from the first page and couldn't stop flipping the pages because I was so absorbed by the story. It owned me.

This was my first book from Mary and let me tell you, it will not be the last. She knows how to captivate the reader and leave them wanting more. I am on pins and needles waiting for the next book to Beast. 

Frankie is a remarkable character. I enjoyed going through this journey with her. She is so fierce and noble for giving herself up for her father. What she walks into with Beast is beyond anything she could've imagined. The secrets that are revealed will shock you.

Beast is a monster of a character. I couldn't help but be drawn to him and instantly love him. He's protective, strong, passionate and completely intoxicating. I found myself loving him and hating him all at the same time. Loved the whirlwind that was Beast.

So if you love a story that pushes the limits, has a great storyline and characters that you'll never forget, you need to get this one. My heart is still on a constant emotional rollercoaster because of the ending. Such an insatiable story.

I give Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning by Mary Catherine Gebhard 4 out of 5 MIO CUORE STARS.
