Stage Left (Bright Lights Billionaire – 1) by Ali Parker

From Best Selling Author, Ali Parker comes a new Billionaire Series filled with sexiness, humor and intense attraction…

Ethan Lewis has been in the bright lights for as long as he can remember. He’s just turned the cusp of celebrating his twenty-fourth birthday, and yet he feels more like eighty. Living the life of a celebrity isn’t all it is chalked up to be, and dealing with the unruly number of women who are more interested in his billions than who he is as a person is getting old. He has resigned himself to giving up on love and focusing on the only thing that truly gives back – his career.

Riley Phillips has always dreamed of being on a big stage with the warmth of the spotlight baring down on her, but she just couldn’t seem to catch the right agent’s attention. After giving a quick commencement speech as Valedictorian of her graduating class at Billmore High, she’s offered something she can’t refuse… The chance to work in Hollywood. It’s not all it’s chalked up to be, but she works hard and finally gets her big break four years down the line. There is a new movie that her agent wants her to audition for, and her co-star? The dreamy Ethan Lewis.

She scores the part, but soon regrets it due to his callous, overbearing persona. He’s nothing like the public touts, and she for one isn’t impressed.

Funny enough, he is – immensely.

This is book 1 in a continued series.

18+ Explicit sexual content and possible foul language.

My Review

4 stars

 Icarus has finally been released from Hell after serving his time. But Apollo and Artemis don’t agree with his release. Icarus is on earth but every time things start to be going well for him, Apollo and Artemis have to mess it up. Icarus is giving a tip from Athena to head to a small town in which he finds a small bookshop and Eve.

Eve gives Icarus a job and a place to stay, but she is drug into his life when she learns the truth about his past. Even and Icarus are on a quest for the golden fleece. Together they face the challenges from Apollo and Artemis.

This is a cute take on the Icarus legend. I loved following the different Gods and Goddesses. Icarus is trying to pick up the pieces of his life but is not going to get the chance with Apollo and Artemis harassing him. Eve is just a sweetie and I was glad to see that they started a relationship. This is a quick read and I do hope to read more from N.W. Moors in the future.

My Review

5 stars

 Jarrod Torrealday is a former Olympic saber fencer. He is banned from competition after an accident that killed another fencer. He has been working as a stuntman and consultant. Then a sorcerer gives him an offer that he can’t refuse. He is taken to Gateskeep and works as a knight. But he is supposed to be the key to defeating the other kingdoms sorcerer, one that has spent time on Earth and has similar advantages to Jarrod.

This book has great story development and amazing action scenes. You can tell Joseph Malik has experience with swords because that knowledge rings throughout the story. But that is not the only thing going for this story. It is full of colorful descriptions that make you feel right there next to Jarrod. It was so easy to get into this wonderful story that I didn’t realize I had been up most of the night reading.

If you like fantasy stories with a realistic twist this is the book for you. This is a great story that will leave you wanting more from Joseph Malik.
