    Well shit that was flubbing fantastic!!! It had a slow start and one chapter was infuriatingly long but I got through it and ended up loving this! It?s one of my favorites from C.M. and I need book 2 now!!! ...

    This book broke me. And I mean that in the absolute best way possible. After I finished Spirited, I literally stared at my kindle screen wondering when I can get my greedy hands on the next book, because I needed it. I needed it. Spirited introduces us to not only a new realm, but ...

    Holy ship! Spirited exceeded my expectations and then some. Not only has this book become my favorite of C.M. Stunich?s (which is saying something because I adore Allison and Groupie), but the heroine is probably one of my all-time favorites out of all the books I have read up to thi...

    So good! One if my favorite RH authors First I have to say Cliffhanger warning. I knew going in and if I hadn't known I would have been even more upset than I already was. I enjoyed this one. I'm a but fuzzy on a few technical details if the world but I think all of that will be exp...

    At first I didn't want to enjoy this book. I admit I read a chapter, closed it and thought about deleting it from my reading list. The half angel loosing a feather over every swear word and the made up swears and then same explanation for them on repeat example "ship!" only -the p and ...

    I really want to say I loved this, but I struggled to finish it. STRUGGLED. The start is great and then it kind of bleh. I don't have a serious investment in any of the characters. The harem promise was lack luster. The things I did like were the world and the magic. ...

    Review Okay bad rating becuase main character Brynn is very indecisive. I feel like with the opportunity given she should pf gone all out to help her best friend. Not cry about it for ages. Also the random people who keep joining her harem, is getting a bit odd. Harems can be fun bu...

    Holy flubbing ship!! I LOVED this book!! From start to finish, it was so fun, different, exciting, sweet, and sexy! All rolled into one exquisite package! The characters were unique and all their own. They each had depth, without an insane amount of boring backlog details but enough to...

    I liked this story a lot, particularly the characters. Looking forward to finding out more about them all in the next book. There was a lot going on in this book, it isn?t what I?d call an ?easy? read, it is complex and gripping. ...

    I really enjoyed this book although I enjoy most of C. M. Stunich books. The world she brings you into keeps you wanting to know more. Brynn was adorable. She was entertaining and her relationship with her guys was so cute to read about. I am glad I waited to read this because th...

    DNF at 60%. I'm not going to make myself miserable by reading a book that I'm not enjoying. I've already had a rough day. I got sunburned during my 4 hour soccer practice I had to run. I now have 2 busted up knees and I pulled a muscle in my back because I'm sick and I was coughing ...

    There are some intriguing parts to this story, enough to keep me interested enough to check out book two. There are also some pretty big plot holes and not much in the way of world building. Overall this was entertaining but yet did drag in places, it's a bit of a mixed bag really. Boo...

    OMG! You can?t end a book there! It just isn?t right! Brynn is a spirit whisperer trying to get into the Royal College with her handler, Jasinda. They were on their last ditch effort to try and get acceptance when Brynn?s entire life is flipped on its axis. She learns th...

    Favorite book this year!!! This book is just awesome! They live in a land where women having reverse harems is the usual and people that can see, talk to, and exorcise ghosts is normal as well. The MC is a half human half angel, clumsy, ghost whisperer. It starts off with her meetin...

    Holy Crap! I wasn?t sure how I was going to like this book, as ghosts and the like aren?t typically my thing, but since it?s CM Stunich, I decided to give it a go. And by all that is good, am I glad I did. I was immediately sucked into Brynn?s story and her clumsy plight. T...

    This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books. Oh I guess it had to happen one day, that a C.M. Stunich book would come along that just didn?t hit the spot for me. I mean, it was good, but it just didn?t bowl me over in the way I?ve come to expect from a Stunich novel. ...

    Potential This was a really good book, though it took quite awhile for me to get into it. There were lots of missed editing mistakes I found, and in my opinion, Brynn?s ?non-cussing? cussing in the beginning was overdone. I certainly have my own potty mouth, so nothing against...

    Aaaand she did it again. C. M. Stunich has managed to write another cool book that you can't help but get sucked into. Yeah, at first I wasn't sure about it. The beginning was rather confusing for me, mainly because I didn't fully understand the world building and how things work her...

    Brynn of Haversey is a spirit whisperer. She has the ability to see and speak to the dead, she can send them to the afterlife. Brynn is a beautiful, curvy small half-breed angel with wings twice her size causing her to be a walking accident. Two left feet doesn't begin to describe her ...

    I simply can't understand how this book could get such good reviews??? I love fantasy and crazy/wild romances that happen in these fictitious realms. But, and this is a huge must for me, they have to have a fully developed world and somewhat deep developed characters that you can e...

    Rating : TBA When book 1 turns out to be a long as fuck introduction, it's always a bit of a disappointment. But it was quite good. And I can't wait to read the next book. rtc ...

    Soooo good! Loved it!!! Absolutely loved ?Spirited?!!! I anxiously awaited this book, and it was well worth the wait! Brynn is one of my favorite characters!! I love that she is a spirit whisperer double-blessed! I really love all her men in her soon-to-be harem. Elijah is defin...

    4.5 Stars I've been excited for this book since the author first teased it months ago, and I was not disappointed! I tend to rate reverse harem (RH) books on a personal bell curve I have just for RH books, and this author always is always solidly at the top of the curve for me. I prob...

    3.75 Stars SPOILERS THROUGHOUT: I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and I thought that the story flowed well. I was interested in where the plot was going and I was intrigued by the world that C.M. Stunich has created. I liked Brynn. She was different from most femal...

    I?ve been anxiously waiting to read this since I first read a teaser of it and it did not disappoint !! Another world written by CM Stunich that drew my in by the first chapter, and didn?t let go until that shocking cliffhanger. Spirited is based on a beautiful but clumsy black win...

    So apart from the description being the biggest spoiler of all, this was a good story. Straight away I fell in love with the characters and the world created. I like the punishment for the whole swearing thing. Gotta say the main character is rubbish at keeping secrets. Can?t wait to...

    I have been waiting for this book since it was first announced. The concept was cool and unique and it more than lived up to my expectations. Brynn is a clumsy half - angel who has never been able to live up to the expectations of her peers or those in charge of the academy. Over the c...

    This was my first time reading a reverse harem novel and I LOVED IT. The heat was palpable between the characters, though I'm definitely waiting to see more of Vexen. A fun fantasy read. Why choose? Though beware, it does end on a cliffhanger. Thankfully, the second book is out now. ...

    Alright, I have mixed feeling about this one. Things I liked for sure : The unusual world interpretation mixed with (our) world mythology and objects - mainly referring to the Japanese Katana and Yokai - as well as the concept of angels, demigods etc. and the idea of being able to ...
