    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...

    A Sensational Read KU I found this a sensational read and loved every second. I definitely will be trying more of Stunich?s work. This was such a KU bargain that was a 100% jackpot hit. The characters are drawn in full Technicolor and have both depth and complexity as they dev...

    I really, really like this book. Definitely a great beginning for a fantasy trilogy. This book is a verse harem, but she only sleeps with 2 ?men?. You get the impression that the author is building a storyline that will include more men. Brynn is described as a very beautiful woman...

    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...

    Interesting fantasy world. I have problems with it, though. The protagonist is getting it on with ghosts. It's okay to do that, I guess. But, the author just expects us to buy into it. I need to know how this works. The ghosts are able to become physical enough to have regular sex, but...

    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...

    Thank you Sharon J for recommending this series to me. This was an incredible read. This is one of my favourite books of 2018. The story was amazing. The characters were amazing. Brynn was amazing. She caused mini-disasters, but I love her so much. I love that she has a big heart. Also...

    Loved it! I started of kind of weary but I am glad I stuck with it. The non-cursing annoyed me to no end but I somehow got over it and started to enjoy myself. The world builds as you read... if you pay attention. It is a bit subtle but it is there. The blurb is a spoiler fo...

    Sweet Mamma This book is one hundred percent worth the read. I lost myself in the book and didn't want to re-surface. It has everything one would want in a book and more. The chemistry is to die for ?? and the action is awesome. You will fall in love and want more just lik...

    When I started reading book 1 I really liked it, but then a common theme emerged... everybody dies. In an unnecessary kind of way. As I finished book 2 it just got a little too repetitive for my taste. Same situations where people end up the same way... dead. Keep in mind that this ser...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    Stunich, you have yet again wowed me. Spirited is so beautiful written with just a hint or two of some sass. We all love a good sassy character. When i first heard about this series I really thought it was going to be just straight ghostly love. Just Brynn someone stumbling across some...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...
