I didn’t think my life could get weirder, but I was wrong…

Fifteen-year-old Amelina Scott lives in Cambridge with her dysfunctional family, a mysterious black cat, and an unusual girl who is imprisoned within the mirrors located in her house.

When an unexpected message arrives inviting her to visit the Crystal Cottage, she sets off on a forbidden path where she encounters Ryder: a charismatic, perplexing stranger.

With the help of a magical paint set and some crystal wizard stones, can Amelina discover the truth about her family?

A unique, imaginative mystery full of magic-wielding and dark elements, Bloodstone is a riveting adventure for anyone interested in fantasy, mythology or the world of the paranormal.

He’s never been kissed, and she’s about to rock his world…


Bubbly actress Sam is on the brink of the bigtime — all she needs is one lucky break. But when she drops everything for the chance to meet Hollywood’s biggest star, she blows it by blurting out a lie.

Now, she’s got ten days to write an album with a man who wants nothing to do with her.

Shy electrician Jamie has never set foot outside Scotland — or his comfort zone. Then beautiful and vivacious Sam gatecrashes his world, and he’s unwillingly swept up in her grand plan. But though Jamie has the voice of an angel and the body of a god, he’s never even kissed a girl… and fame is the last thing on his mind.

As the songs emerge, so do feelings — but Sam’s determination to reach the top is matched only by how fast her lies are catching her up.

When the duo are offered the opportunity of a lifetime, the spotlight illuminates their glaring differences. Can Sam and Jamie face the music, or will fame tear them apart?

Musical Games is a steamy, slow-burn, grumpy/sunshine, laugh-out-loud, dual POV romantic comedy. Featuring an extremely hot virgin hero and a big-hearted heroine with a runaway mouth — there’s no cheating, no cliff-hanger, and you’re guaranteed a happy ever after (HEA).

My review

Musical Games is part of the Kinloch series, and this is book 4. I have only read Musical Games and it reads well as a standalone novel.

This author can write sexy scenes! The sex is detailed, but tastefully done, giving sizzling heat and tenderness to this 18plus romantic story and the developing love between actress Sam and electrician Jamie.

Scottish hunk Jamie is inexperienced, and at 27, is still living at home when lively Sam turns his life around making him reassess his virgin status! Furthermore, she introduces him to the potential of an exciting music career as a singing duo.

Initially, I thought Musical Games (a steamy romantic comedy,) was somewhat instalove for my taste but Evie Alexander’s warm- hearted tale won me over and I really enjoyed this.

The characters are well written, and engaging, the on off love plot of attraction/love/uncertainties is relatable, simple and effective.

Musical Games is an entertaining, sexy and amusing romance (I loved the part about his mum finding her big Jim!) And the ending wraps everything up in a lovely smiley way. Recommended for sexy romance fans.

My rating: 4.5 stars

Blog Tour Hooked Sarah Conway @lilmissmorfett #blogtour #dlmbooktours


Was I more surprised that Brenda was a hooker or that she had business cards at my parents’ drinks party?

Tilly swaps legal briefs for lacy ones…but are the lifestyles compatible?

About to embark on a respectable law career, Tilly stumbles upon a different life, one with many advantages but also risks and challenges.

Can Tilly satisfy herself and those around her?


This is a little different from my usual reading but I enjoyed it!

It’s the story of a young woman, Tilly, who is lacking in confidence after a break up with a ‘a real minger,’ Jed. From that point on, she decides to follow an alternative path from fledgling lawyer to professional escort. Hooked is about following your own path, being independent and not being swayed by the opinions of others, overcoming doubts that you aren’t as good as your siblings, or having to prove your self worth to your parents. I appreciated that sentiment.

It tackles various escort scenarios with lightheartedness, and a touch of humour. Most of the character development in that respect is about her escort relationship with Edward, an older man whose wife had died.

On the whole, it portrays the escort business in a positive light. And didn’t move over into more unpleasant territory. Also, it tackles the difficulties of confessing this lifestyle to friends and family. It is an easy and entertaining read.

Recommended for those who enjoy sexy liberating stories.

Thank you to Donna for the blog tour organisation and to the author for a paperback copy which I was pleased to receive. It’s a quick read, which I am happy to review without bias.

My rating 4 stars.
