I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This is book 4 of the King Series. In this portion we see Tasmyn back with Michael. They are both attending Perriman and working towards a future together. Tasmyn is learning to control the new aspects of her powers, sometimes not very well. She’s offered a job by group the works with special people like her to help others, and they’ve also agreed to teach her how to control her newer powers. This is like a dream come true… But true to form, Tasmyn ends up in the middle of an ugly feud when Nell’s father is accused of murder.

Once again Tawdra Kandle does not disappoint! I was drawn in from page one. I love the way Tasmyn was written, she accepts these gifts she has and doesn’t see it as a curse or burden. Michael is the sweetest boyfriend ever! This was fun book, there’s only one thing I didn’t really like and that was that this series is over. I fell in love with the main characters and wanted to watch them grow old together. This series is a must read for every paranormal romance lover!

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

Once again, I'm completely swept away by Tawdra Kandle's new Serendipity series. This series follows the characters from the King series. In book one, we catch up with Rafe at the end of his senior year of high school. He'd been through so much with Tasmyn, that I'm sure you'd have expected Tasmyn to finally be with him.

On a quest to mend his broken heart, Rafe has decided to spend his summer travelling while he sorts out what path he wants to take with his life. When he arrives in New Orleans, he feels a kinship with the city and meets the drop dead gorgeous Jocelyn. This is where the adventure really begins...

I was so excited to hear that there was this series in the works. I hated to see the King Series end, the characters became fast friends and I was sad to see them go. I loved being a "fly on the wall", popping into Rafe' s world as he once again becomes involved in something dangerous and experiences falling in love for real. Even though I was a bit jealous that Rafe finally had someone, I was really thrilled he was finally able to move on. Tawdra weaves an amazing tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat, dying to find out what happens next. This story was absolutely brilliant and I'm dying to read book two!

Fearless by Tawdra Kandle
Book 1 of the King series. YA paranormal romance.
Tasmyn is the new kid in school trying to make friends. She’s promised her parents she will keep her mind reading ability under wraps but when boyfriend Michael makes a guess, Tas confirms her ability. Something sinister seems to threatening the small Florida town and the two investigate as they grow closer to each other.

A bit slow to start with a lot of cliches, but once you get past the teen love at first sight, the nasty Nell is worthy of following. Additional support of friends and school situations as well as meeting of the parents fill out the story with hints of what’s to come in rest of the series. Not a cliffhanger but not everything has been answered.
An adventure that kept me reading. I will be reading more of this series, probably with the next year’s reading challenge.

*This is a review of Playing By Heart by Sylvie Stewart - part of the Holiday Heart-On Anthology.

Cute and sweet
5 stars

I’m a big fan of Sylvie Stewart - she’s great at filling her stories with a combination of comedy and likeable, relatable characters. While this is the first short story of hers I’ve read - she still manages to make it everything I hoped and expected. But that’s not to say it didn’t leave me wanting more - but in the best possible way.

At a Christmas in July pet pageant (I mean, why the hell not?) Kat luck turns around when her crush turns up with his adorable dog. Better yet, he’s in a bind and the only one who can help him out, is Kat! And cue the music!

I liked both our characters instantly and they have the cutest chemistry. It’s quite nice to read a story with such innocent smittenness. It’s not that the story is innocent (although there’s only kissing), it’s just that they’re so totally adorable that it feels fresh.

For such a short story, I still definitely believed in their connection. Of course I wanted more. And of course I wish it was longer. But I was sucked in immediately and was left satisfied and with a smile on my face. I couldn’t ask for much more.


Playing By Heart is Sylvie Stewart’s contribution in the larger Holiday Heart-On anthology. This set of 18 festive stories has been pulled together to raise money and awareness for women’s heart health. 100% of proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women® movement. There’s a whole set of different stories (averaging around 40 pages each) with different styles, tones and steam levels.
