Book Review 5 out of 5 stars! This series are standalone novellas with HEAs for main couples! However, there are little Easter Eggs and previous characters popping up. I read this one first before reading book one so I'm going to review them the way I read them = out of order (gasp)! * * * "Monsters are real." Monsters are real and they aren't the ones your typical monster lover author writes about. If you are caught outside after warning sirens, then you better have written out a will. . .  Max's tired of being stalked by a monster! Our ex-monster hunter is done of just sitting in his house watching the monster who watches him. He decides to take things into his own hands and confront said monster. He has nothing to lose so why should he care if his life ends? Yet, something about the monster fascinates him and has him awestruck by its beauty. NO, Max, no!

Book Review 5 out of 5 stars! "Poor Eugine was in for a very, very, interesting day." Ah yes, let me get a coffee with multiple shots of a love potion. . . A mix up gone wrong or possibly very right?  Eugine is trying to be the best assistant he possibly can be, but Maeve doesn't make things easy for him. His curvy, cat-girl boss is a goddess in his eyes but our poor, shy, mantis can't bring himself to say those things out loud. I mean Maeve is viewed as a cold-hearted-tyrant of a boss so it may end with him out of a job. Little do either of them know that things are about to get very spicy, and HR will not approve! "I wasn’t going out of my mind, I’d been spelt." - Maeve This read is only seventy-two pages long but oh my!  While reading I kept getting "The Devil Wears Prada" or "The Proposal" vibes. Maeve has very high standards for everyone around her and if you don't meet those, goodbye. Eugine has lasted longer than the previous a

Book Review 5 out of 5 stars! First off if you haven't read " Fall of the King Saber " book 3 in "The Tales of the Swordsmen" read that first! This little novella contains spoilers for the ending of said book! * * * * “Oh, Li Ming, how am I supposed to raise this wayward daughter of yours? She is wicked and wild and will not treat her elders with respect." - Tao Jun This is a fun little read as a 0.5 between " Fall of the King Saber " and " Echo of the Blue Mountain "! Shu Yan and Tao Jun come across a woman being harassed by a man. Shu Yan intervening and showcasing how much she has matured under her teachings with Li Ming and Tao Jun. Only like a lot of men who can't take no for an answer A Dou isn't letting go of what Shu Yan did. . . How will our little apprentice handle this sequence of events?! I've missed Shu Yan's snark and sass along with Tao Jun and his dramatics! The two pairing well as Tao Jun teaches Shu Yan.

Book Review 5 out of 5 stars! First and foremost! This series can be read as standalones since each book is about a different couple. However, for a better understanding of the College and the cast of characters, I recommend reading them in order. There are recaps but not too many to giveaway the entire plots and arcs of the previous book. * * * * "I won’t let anyone see these hidden parts of me." - Regis Regis' life was ripped away from him when his mother finally came back for him.
