Guarding Greatness by Lena Jakes – Review by Layna

Gage Martin is protective of his friends, his past, and his heart. He’s seen true love, but doesn’t trust it – so he vowed long ago to live his life in darkness with no ties or roots as he puts out political fires around the world.

Genna VanJohnson is an every-woman – as much as she can be while also being the cousin to a Prince. She knows that a giant spotlight is never far away from her family, and does everything she can to live a normal life for as long as she can – before the spotlight finds her.

Gage and Genna find their worlds colliding when the small island chain Genna calls home becomes the center of a political game of cat and mouse. They’ve been partners in the past, but when the job – and the partner – get personal, they will have to decide if their pasts will bind them together, or tear them apart.

The Shift of the Tide by Jeffe Kennedy – Review by Layna

A QUICKSILVER HEART

Released from the grip of a tyrant, the Twelve Kingdoms have thrown all that touch them into chaos. As the borders open, new enemies emerge to vie for their hard-won power—and old deceptions crumble under the strain…

The most talented shapeshifter of her generation, Zynda has one love in her life: freedom. The open air above her, the water before her, the sun on her skin or wings or fur—their sensual glories more than make up for her loneliness. She serves the High Queen’s company well, but she can’t trust her allies with her secrets, or the secrets of her people. Best that she should keep her distance, alone.

Except wherever she escapes, Marskal, the Queen’s quiet lieutenant, seems to find her. Solid, stubborn, and disciplined, he’s no more fluid than rock. Yet he knows what she likes, what thrills and unnerves her, when she’s hiding something. His lithe warrior’s body promises pleasure she has gone too long without. But no matter how careful, how tender, how incendiary he is, only Zynda can know the sacrifice she must make for her people’s future—and the time is drawing near…

Ruck Me by Rebecca Norinne – Review by Layna

She flies by the seat of her pants, and he’s a no-nonsense kind of guy. When these two opposites attract … oh baby, it’s game on!

I’d called Aoife O’Shaughnessy a number of things, but dumb was never one of them. Through all the trouble she’d gotten into over the years, I never once thought she was actually stupid. Until now. Because I just heard her plan to lose her virginity to the biggest a-hole we know.

My first thought? How the f*ck is Aoife still a virgin? The second? Over my dead body.

So I volunteered for the job instead.

It might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but once the words were out of my mouth, I couldn’t take them back. I didn’t want to. Suddenly, I couldn’t stop wondering what it would be like to kiss the pink-haired sprite I’d known my whole life, to hear her moan my name when she comes.

And I know she’s wondering about me too.

It was only supposed to be sex, but now I’m in deep. I never meant to fall in love with Aoife; this wasn’t supposed to happen. And what came next? Well, neither of us planned on that.
