A Perilous Undertaking

Hello, Fellow Book lovers I am back to bring you another awesome Review. This review will be base on Book-two in the Veronica Speedwell Series by Deanna Raybourn. I am so excited you guys this series is one of my favorites, and now Book four is about to be released in March of 2019, I can’t wait. But now let's get back to Book two A Perilous Undertaking was release January 2017 in the USA and is now available in Paperback as well. Guys Seriously, if Deanna Had Veronica Merch of any Kind it, Half my room would have to be cover. Veronica Speedwell will be a series feature in my Top Ten book list of the year. I can’t express enough about how much I love this series but let's see if I can provide more in the summary and final thoughts portion of the blog like always.


So A Perilous Undertaking is about Veronica and Stoker solving a Deadly Murder mystery. The Mistress of One Lord Miles Ramsforth has been killed. Miles is the main Suspect but did he do it. Miles friends such as Princess Louise of the Victorian Crown aka Lady Sundridge has to ask Veronica Privately to investigate the murder. OF course, Veronica decides to do it for personal reasons but she also Seeks Stoker's help. We also first meet the great Lady Wellington aka Wellie who is a riot of laughter through most of the book and also is connected to the great Princess Louise. As Veronica and Stoker investigate the murder we find out Scandalous things about all of the people involved even Stoker own family. But will we ever find out who the real murder of the Mistress was and why was she murder, you will only know if you pick up this series, which I urge you to do already.

As for my final thoughts on this book and the characters, especially Veronica and Stoker. This story really explains more about Veronica relationship to her family connections. We as readers find out what some of those family members really think of Veronica and how they try to use her. We learn why Stoker is so distant from his own family. This story also provides more knowledge about Stoker trouble childhood, and somewhat about his first marriage, which is discussed more in Book three. Stoker himself gives us reasons as to why he is so protective of Veronica around her family and his. We gain a lot of knowledge about who is who and why they are the way they are. Of course, we also gain information on the famous Lady Wellington and what she really thinks of Veronica and How that plays into Veronica Life. This book is so well detailed when it comes to these characters and their actions, I just enjoyed it so much and I can’t wait to reread them. 

I clearly rated this book a five out of five stars. I honestly could probably read this series every day and not get sick of these characters. When these books are over with, my first thought is always when will Deanna Raybourn next Veronica book be released. I love how strong, fierce, and Independent Veronica Speedwell is for a Victorian girl. I also love how Veronica makes Stoker's Blush when talking about Romance among women and men. Stoker doesn’t seem proper to others but he is such a Gentleman with Veronica, it's clear that he cares about her. He always seems to put her first when making a decision, even thou it doesn’t seem that way. I also love Veronica Shocking opinions, she just voices whatever pops into her head and it reminds me of me. I personally related to Veronica on a Kindred spiritual level. My favorite thing about this precise book has to be how Scandalous it is for Victorian age. This book involves so much information about Victorian brothels and how the Socialites, like to enjoy their Personal time. It talks about Orgies, Sexual toys of the Era and it really helps bring Veronica Forth somewhat. What I mean by this is that Veronica just gives you such laughs when she is discussing any scientific Sexual information especially with Stoker. (I am not blushing you are lol). This has to be one of my favorite books although I say that about all of Veronica Speedwell Books. 

Now I honestly hope you all check out this series, either from the library, a friend bookshelf or buy them yourselves because they are funny as heck. I one hundred percent will always recommend this series to people around me because it is officially one of my favorites. Honestly, friends, I can’t rave enough about Veronica Speedwell books, they really make you think and they are such a fast read. Once I begin one of these books I can’t put it down. Like I said before when I finish one, I right away want the next one to read already. So I hope you guys enjoy this review of Book two. Please share this blog with all of your friends. As always, all of the Links for these books, their reviews, and the author are below along with my Social media information.

Lora Leigh Cross Breed Review

Hello, book lovers of the world I have a special treat today. I get to talk about a book series I have love and read since I was 19 years old. This series is near and dear to my heart, I will never let it go. The series I am talking about is the Breed Series by the one and only Lora Leigh, and of Course, the book I am talking about is the one that Many will be talking about for a long time to come. Its Cassie Sinclair “CrossBreed”. Also, I want to hugely thank Berkley Publishing for this wonderful Net galley Arc. This Book will be available to purchase on September 25th, 2018. Now on to the summary and my final thoughts as always. 


This book is about The one and Only Cassie Sinclair, the pride of every Breed Branch. But in this tale, we get to meet her mate. We also get to find out some pretty Interesting things, in general, about the entire breed world. I can’t lie We have all seen Cassie's type of Mating before in some of the previous characters relationships, in several of the books. But Now we get to really meet a grown-up Cassie.  We get to see Cassie with her mate and her family as she develops a more mature sense of oneself. Old friends come together along with new friends to basically Change life as we know it. This is the Breed book you’ve all been waiting for and its one you will certainly want to read again and again. 

As for my thoughts, it is totally a five out of five stars. I had some hits and a missing moment with it. I had a missing moment with Cassie thoughts as a Mate. I felt like as a Breed lawyer, she would have had more Knowledge when it came to the mating aspect of things. But boy do I love the end, it's so bloody delicious. As for her Mate, well I feel like he is simply a distraction for the readers. He is not that big of a deal in the reality of everything (evil Smile). He is Cassie mate, he wants what is best for her but he is not the biggest Secret that this book keeps from you all. This story is made of secrets of all kinds. I also love the discussion in here about DNA which is coming from many different characters, not just one. I love how grown up Cassie becomes, it's not our little Cassie anymore. But I also love how Lora develops Cassie and gives her a complex breed adult personality. Cassie just really comes to understand more about her mate, her genetics and her life in the Breed world in my opinion.

I am not going to lie, Cassie is very scared of things because they happen so fast but at the same time she can handle them. She is unsure of how to proceed with these things but she eventually learns. She becomes a fierce unstoppable beautiful Breed female that nobody has seen before and she will make history. Cassie will be a force to be reckoned with, just you wait. I honestly just can’t wait for fans of this series to read this book. Its exciting my very center to talk about it right now. (giggly screams)

As for the rest of the book, it will take place, in a place that we all know but haven’t seen much of before. Old favorites will gain new information about themselves. Brand new people are coming into the light. We get more information on a few of the lesser known breeds especially Cassie Mate. We also find out who knew about Cassie mate before everyone else. Oh and the best of the best, a brand new baby is coming. This book is all about family, it has family everywhere. oh Did I mention, Secrets everywhere (grins). I only have an Arc and I have read this book twice already. I honestly just could go on and on about how amazing it all is and how lucky I am to have read it. I seriously can’t wait until you all read this book because in the end Cassie Mate, is not that big of a deal to me, it is so not. As always links below for the book, the author, and my social media. Once again, a huge thank you to Berkley for this Netgalley copy. 

Tea, Love, Books

Wild Hunger Synopsis

So I have a very short Synopsis for the newest Chloe Neill Book Wild Hunger. This book will be released on August 14, its a new sequel Series to Chicagoland Vampires but this Series is title Chicagoland Heirs. Chloe is also doing a contest for this book, which I will be talking about more at the end.

Wild Hunger is the first book in the New Series Chicagoland Heirs. It stars Elisa the daughter of Master Ethan and his Badass Sentinel Merit. They both run Cadigan Vampire House. We also Meet the Conner Keene, son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene. They come together in this book to help Solve a Murder. But while working together, Conner and Elisa both realize they have feelings for each other that cannot be denied. But Elisa wants to appear as Strong as both of her parents and as Independent while Conner has to decide whether being with Elisa is the hard way or Easy way. As they work on this murder together they must also help End old Feuds.

As a long time reader of Chicagoland Series, I would Suggest you go back and reread or even start reading the Original Series before this One. But if you have been here since the beginning and have read every single Merit and Ethan Book, You should definitely go get Wild Hunger when it comes out August 14th. All the links to purchase the book and for the contest will be below. I will also be back with a full review of this book at the end of this month. As always please follow, sub and Share.
