gu- about the book.png

The werewolf, most believe to be folklore or legend. For centuries, the existence of werewolves were kept secret and guarded by a warrior class of lycan descended from a fierce ancient line known as the Guardians. These Guardians, sworn to uphold the peace between the wolf and humans. But, some werewolves not satisfied with living in secrecy start lashing out, hunting and killing all with the ancient gene to push humanity into extinction. Now, only a few descendants are left with the cursed bloodline, some don’t even know they have…

gu- about the author.png


Nollen Bradley is a pen name for Bradley Noll an American author residing near Leavenworth Kansas. The married, father of two grown children is new to the published author scene even though he has been writing song lyrics, poems and short stories all of his life. Brad grew up on a farm outside of Winchester Kansas learning the value of hard work. Following college, Brad spent twelve years as a Paramedic until his second back surgery ending his successful career where he received several letters of commendation. Brad spent time farming in his off days feeling the everyday pressures of the weather, markets and juggling the debt that is associated with large business. All the while, continuing to write songs and preform at local venues. Following a music CD he produced named “Make Believe” with eleven of his original songs and while in the process of producing his second Album he realized his talent was more suited for writing then music.

One day it snapped and with Brad’s influences like Merle Haggard, Chris Kristofferson, Hank Jr., Metallica and most of all “The Man in Black” Johnny Cash. Brad’s mentors show as in the words from the poem ‘Looking Down’

“I pulled my cowboy hat down low, Drank down my last swallow, Of Kentucky Bourbon and coke,

As the World was spinning round, I knew I have to slow it down, Cause I’m going nowhere fast, staring at the bottom of this glass…”

Nollen Bradley, 2010

Brad takes the experience from the sweat stinging his eyes from the heat on a hot July day in Kansas. The heartache from having to tell a parent or a child that their loved one has died and there was nothing he could do, to the struggles of trying to pursue a dream and watching it crumble in front of him. Brad has developed a style that draws on real life experiences to provide exciting yet believable story lines that captivate readers. Writing unbelievable tales with the realism of the struggles from everyday life in the painful cookie cutter suburban age.



gu- my review.png

In a world lacking werewolf tales, Guardian Unforgiven comes swooping in to try to change all of this. We meet a widowed father named Mark who is still recovering from his wife’s death after losing her a few years earlier. At the arrival of a mysterious woman named Page, he begins to notice his body is beginning to change, senses becoming heightened around his furry patients at the local veterinarian clinic.

I enjoyed the touch of his choice of “mental background music” in order to describe his surroundings. Nollen should have placed a playlist at the back of the book to keep track of them all or created a Spotify playlist to share. It would have added a more intimate touch with the books events and enhance them.

You looking for werewolves? A splash of romance, but with the dial on erotic love scenes cranked up to ten? Characters who grab you the moment you begin to grasp the words leaping up off the page? Give Guardians Unforgiven a try!

*Disclaimer: I received an ARC copy via NetGalley and Kindred Ink Press LLC in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my review whatsoever.*


On a secret mission for her entrepreneur father, Diana Tolliver (aka Diana Clay) finds herself unexpectedly alone on a singles cruise. She befriends another solo female passenger, and they play a game to make their would-be-boring cruise a bit more fun. Each woman must pick out a single male for the other to date for the duration of the cruise.

JJ Westbrook is working his final gig as band manager for his best friend, country singer Hunter Cross, leaving to pursue a new job. While on the deck of the cruise ship, JJ spots a blonde goddess and is captivated.

When mutual friends reconnect, Diana and JJ are set up and quickly become enamored with each other, but only have a few chances to sneak away together during their time on the ship. Will they be able go their separate ways after the cruise, or will romance—and careers—bring them together again?

My Review

Short, Sweet, and Oh so tantalizing! Despite being a little over ninety pages or so, this short story will leave you clambering for the sequel especially if you are into romances. It’s a hilarious yet loving romp about two unsuspecting people who have a limited amount of time to fall in love, but who will cave first?

Diana Tolliver is abandoned by her friend and assistant Liv on board a singles cruise. Originally, she was sent there on a mission by her father to scope out whether it was worth purchasing by her father. It was supposed to be an innocent business venture alongside Liv. That is, until Liv decided to skip out on her own rendezvous and leave Diana stranded to figure what she’ll do next.

Diana quickly rebounds and teams up with another solo girl on the ship and they both go on a mission. They both set up one another with a random male passenger. What could go wrong, right?

Loved the set up, execution, plus all of the characters in this story! Fell in love immediately and could not put it down. If you’re looking for a short romantic novel to dive into – pick this one!

Graphic Novel Review: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Issue #3

Graphic Novel Review: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Issue #3


What happens when a group of writers take a classic character people know and love and completely change them and their world into a dark, dangerous entity? Welcome to the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina….

If you missed my reviews on the first two issues, you can check them out here…


Issue #1 Review



Issue #2 Review

But enough of the past, lets get on with the next issue!





Twas the night before Halloween, Sabrina’s sixteenth birthday is looming upon the horizon, Madam Satan uses her influence as Sabrina’s substitute drama teacher to orchestrate a series of disastrous moves that will change the tide of the whole series, but that is not the only thing that is looming off in the distance….Harvey and Sabrina’s relationship is beginning to “turn up the heat”.

Ok, lame analogy, but this springs up a little bit of trouble for Sabrina due to the fact she cannot consummate anything due to her upcoming ritual where she shall either choose to embrace darkness and become apart of the Church of Night or become a human. But, there is only one catch. Her aunts constantly remind her she must remain pure or else her test/ritual will be no good. Kind of odd, isn’t it?


Oh, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Remember when Sabrina learned how to fly in the show? Welcome to Sabrina’s flying lesson 2.0! This has to me my favorite part of the whole issue if given the choice. Her cousin describes the events of her ritual when Sabrina goes to him for advice. Once he reaches the point of where she will be flying, I love it’s described to the audience and the visuals are ominously wonderful.



The ending reveals which side Sabrina chooses. Will it be darkness or be human? And also, Madam Satan sends Harvey on a mission to the woods where the ritual is taking place. What will Harvey see and what will happen if he stumbles upon the witches?



Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait too long for my review of the Issue #4 of this series! I’m sorry it took this long for this to be released. More reviews to come for this dark turn on Sabrina!

C.H.B. ARC Review Choosing a Master (Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose #1) By S.M. Perlow

C.H.B. ARC Review Choosing a Master (Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose #1) By S.M. Perlow

*Disclaimer – I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my review whatsoever*


Available: Amazon/Goodreads/B&N


“Like the blood of God…”

In New Orleans, a passage from a Renaissance-era book is Ethan’s only hope to save the woman he loves. He’s a vampire, so he can live forever. Ellie, however, is mortal, ill, and running out of time.

“If Sanguan vampires drank synthetic blood, like Spectavi vampires, the world would be so much safer for humans.”

In the Spectavi laboratory where synthetic blood was created, Vera is making no progress with her current projects. But for her devotion to the Spectavi cause—and their leader—she will go to any lengths.

“She would hold me when she bites, and at least while she sips my blood, I wouldn’t be alone.”

In a nightclub in France, John has an unusual encounter with a gorgeous vampire, but his love for a mortal woman forces him into a devastating choice.

Reason or passion, good or evil, duty, love, or pure pleasure—in a world with two vampire factions at war, choosing the right master is everything.

About the Master

S.M. Perlow is the author of the dark fantasy series, Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose. A longtime entrepreneur, he’s now focused on writing fiction, where his creativity can be both fantastical and deeply human. He loves history and traveling, and brings elements of each into his novels. He lives in Austin, TX, the setting of his new satire, The Girl Who Was Always Single: A Short Horror Story for the Dating App Age.



My Review

Three stories, same universe, with an ending that will send you ready for the next installment….I think I’m ready to “Choose a Master” myself. I’m getting ahead of myself here. Much like Anne Rice, we are taken to the beloved city of New Orleans to get acquainted with the vampires of this series and the sequence of events that lead them to meld together.

Vampires in this series are split up into two factions. We have the Sanguans are the rogue vampires that live in their own ways. The Spectavi are peaceful vampires that partake in synthetic blood and live in harmony amongst humans.

We first meet Ethan, a vampire, who is searching for a cure for his love Ellie. He is willing to go to the ends of the earth in order to find the vital piece to turn her sickness around. Will he find it in time to awake her from her coma?

Next, is Vera. She is also looking to discover a cure of sorts within the confines of the Spectavi synthetic blood laboratory. Her patients aren’t in comas, however, are suffering from deep mental problems that have been inflicted upon them for eternity.

John, a divorcee lost within his depressed soul, gets entangled with a mysterious woman named Madison. As he goes deeper into his new affair, he finds the darker side of vampirism. And his blood? Well, it holds the key to a new ecstasy amongst vampires.

There is an additional side story that I think may expand to the other books. It wasn’t gone into in great detail so I’m going to assume it’ll be touched on in the future books. S.M. Perlow has brought a great addition to the vampire lore and fiction. Out of all three stories, I’d have to say I enjoyed Ethan’s quest the most out of the rest.

C.B.H. Series Review: How to Hang a Witch Series By Adriana Mather

C.B.H. Series Review: How to Hang a Witch Series By Adriana Mather


I’ve been holding off on reviewing this series for awhile now. I read How to Hang a Witch earlier last year and finished it’s sequel, Haunting the Deep, at the beginning of last month. They both follow the strange happenings surrounding a young Samantha Mather whose family has ties to both the Salem Witch Trials and the Titanic.

The first book sets the stage with Samantha and her step mother Vivian move to Salem, Massachusetts into Samantha’s grandmother’s former mansion. Right off the bat, Samantha notices a strange presence inside of the home. Turns out to be a ghost by the name of Elijah, who like most ghosts, dislikes the fact his home has been disturbed and wishes to be left alone.

Outside the house, the world doesn’t seem to treat Samantha any better. At her new school, a group of girls known as The Descendants, are out to get Samantha due to the fact she is related to Cotton Mather. The man who sent their ancestors to their deaths during the Salem Witch Trials. Then a curse springs upon The Descendants and those who are related to the Salem Witch Trials, leading Samantha and her recruiter Elijah, on the case to uncover the dark truth behind the curse before it’s too late.

This book has it’s ups and downs. One of the downs is the sort of love triangle among Samantha, her neighbor Jaxon, and Elijah. Samantha’s relationship with Elijah feels a cross between Casper and Thackery Binx and left me wondering whether how to properly imagine him in my head.

Jaxon has clearly been friend zoned in the first book, but there were moments where I wished Samantha would just be with him. I mean let’s face it, how can you have a proper relationship with a ghost? Never mind, don’t answer that or else I’ll be having Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in my head.

Anyway, aside from the awkwardness of the threesome, the curse was pretty clever. The execution of the plot went smoothly. I figured out the perpetrator easily, but watching the events unfold was entertaining enough.

Rating 8

Now, the sequel!


Get ready to sail upon the Titanic! Or at least a strange, cursed form of it. We meet up with Adriana a few months after the events of the first book. The Descendants barely remember the events of almost being murdered nor the culprit who cursed them in the first place. *coughs* Sorry, everyone, no spoilers here!

Anyways, Adriana’s school decides to host a Titanic themed dance along with changing up the student’s coursework to revolves around the event. Then strange things begin taking place once a mysterious looking dress from the 1900s shows up on the Mather’s doorstep. Adriana opens it up and with one touch of the dress, she is whisked away and wakes up aboard the Titanic with new memories and an identity, surrounded by ghosts of the past. Both ghosts of individuals who survived the sinking and those who did not.

Throughout the book, her and the Descendants team up to uncover the secrets behind why Adriana continually ends up on the old ship, but that’s not the only problem. Jaxon begins acting strange toward Adriana, and the ghost Elijah returns to help the girls figure out why ghosts from the ship are disappearing.

Comparing the second book to the first, I actually like the sequel better than the first book. But Adriana needs to be more responsible in her actions. I get she’s a teenager, but she’s extremely immature about handling the whole Jaxon and Elijah situation. Elijah needs to move on and her continually freaking out and getting pissed anytime he’s either around or disappears got on my nerves.

If Jaxon hadn’t have transformed into a complete jerk aside from telling Adriana off, I’d say he was the mature one in telling her how it was. She shouldn’t be messing around with a ghost. I understand he is important to the plot and all, but ghosts need to move on…haven’t you seen Supernatural?

About the Book

He saved me… And then he blood-bonded me. Now I’m his.

My first meeting with a Chicago vampire went better than expected.

Up until that night, all I knew about vampires was limited to a few common facts: they drink blood, they get a mean sunburn and if you find yourself alone with one, you’re dead.

Except he didn’t kill me.

Sexy, broody Warin clearly had his own reasons for sparing my life and tying me with his blood, but if he’d known how much trouble I’d attract, I bet he wouldn’t have bothered. When he blood-bonded me, secrets even I didn’t know about myself came to light.

Secrets that will pull us both deep into the eternal war between vampires and the witches determined to rid the world of their evil.

We have only one choice now: fight the forces hell-bent on breaking our bond…

My Review

Soulmates, powerful couples whose souls were pre-destined to combine to create a strong bond no mere mortal (or vampire) can keep apart. Olivia and Warin are this kind of couple.

Not many paranormal romance books discuss soulmates in a way when Warin “discovers” his soulmate his vampire family feel the bond down the line. It’s always funny when people close to you realize you are completely whipped. But Warin is not any weaker, but stronger and this is only a sliver of what this book is about.

Vampires are known in this book’s world; however, they are still misunderstood to the masses. In addition, they are in a war against shapeshifters and werewolves. This puts a damper on Olivia and Warin’s story.

We first meet Olivia in the middle of her kidnapping. She is mistakened for being a vampire just for the fact she is reading a vampire paranormal romance. No, not joking. She is thrown in a cell alongside Warin and then their journey begins.

A fun twist on the vampire world and I can’t wait to tap into the sequel! Vampire romance lovers, need apply!
