Review – Coral and Bone by Tiffany Duane

Coral and Bone

Tiffany Duane




Halen knows the sparks igniting under her fingertips are dangerous. She has spent her entire life trying to quell the tingly feelings that make her destroy things, but now that she is back in Rockaway Beach, where she watched her father drown, the flames have become impossible to tame.

Halen is trying to hold on, but when she is thrust into a mysterious new world, the underwater realm of Elosia, she unravels the secrets of her past and can’t help but ignite. As she explores Elosia, she realizes her life has been a lie. And when those who have deceived her come to her for help, Halen must choose—walk away or unleash the magick that could destroy them all.


Coral and Bone by Tiffany Daune is a thrilling paranormal story that captivated me from the very beginning. It’s the type of book that will keep you up late at night and have you dreaming about it.

Duane’s world building is incredibly unique, imaginative, and positively mesmerizing. I was completely fascinated with every single character on land and under the seas. Even though there were so many different backstories, the descriptive writing style had me engrossed the entire time. I thought the plot was exciting, suspenseful, and absolutely entertaining. While there were plenty of dark moments, I loved that Duane sprinkled some humor and romance throughout the story.

The characters were far from perfect, but I found them quite charming and lovable. Halen, Dax, Ezra, Tage, Catch, Pepper, Tasar, the parents, and even Asair… everyone intrigued me in their own ways. They’re all trying to save the world, but who’s really on the “good” side and telling the truth? With all of them pointing at each other and keeping secrets, I’m curious to see how they’d redeem themselves in the next two books… if they do at all.

Overall, I’m really impressed with Tiffany Duane’s gorgeous and enthralling novel. Coral and Bone had fun surprises, heartbreaking moments and mind-blowing twists and turns that had me completely glued to the pages.

If you’re looking for a fast-paced, engaging, and creative YA fantasy story, then definitely add this on your TBR.

Book Blitz – Accidental Tryst by Natasha Boyd

Accidental Tryst
Natasha Boyd
Publication date: March 6th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance


A new standalone seriously (steamy) romantic comedy! Meet Trystan Montgomery. Suit monkey, commitment-phobic serial dater. No more than three dates, unless he hasn’t … you know.


What a disaster! I only just made my flight to New York to help my uncle, and the phone I’m holding is not mine! It seems to belong to some commitment-phobic serial dater who’s never made it past four dates (according to the constant notifications he’s getting from his fake dating profile…) And worse? I have a sinking feeling it’s that hot suit-monkey with the arctic grey eyes I just had a run-in with at the airport. Somehow I have to persuade him not to get a new phone until I get back. My whole life is on that phone. It’s only a few days. Surely we can handle it.

Trystan :

This is a joke, right? My life could not get more f*cked up. I’m in the middle of selling my company and on my way to a funeral and that hot mess hippie-chick stole my freaking phone. I’m not sure how she convinced me not to immediately walk into a smart phone store and get a new one, but now she’s going to have to play stand in and distract me while I deal with my long-avoided and estranged family. I don’t have my dating apps after all, and frankly she’s pretty funny. And sexy. And why can’t I stop texting her? And now we’re talking. And … look, I’ll admit that I usually run for the hills the morning after, but the morning after phone sex? That’s not really real, right?

Emmy: I hate my boss.
Suit Monkey: What happened?
Emmy: Pitch was cancelled. He knew that but still made me call in. I’m feeling … stabby.
Suit Monkey: Stabby?
Emmy: Murderous!
Suit Monkey: So you texted ME? Great.
Emmy: Sorry.
I found myself grinning.
Suit Monkey: No it’s fine really. It’s nice to know I spring to mind when you’re stirred to great heights of passion. Was just hoping they’d be less murderous and more amorous.
Emmy: In the middle of the day?
Suit Monkey: A noon delight? Why not?
I gasped dramatically in the empty break room and typed double exclamation points of shock and hit send.
Suit Monkey: I’m kidding. Kind of. Not really. But I bet you’re smiling now. Or at least rolling your eyes.
Emmy: I am
Trystan: I’m in a car with my uncle and my cousin going to visit some of the properties I now own. But if I weren’t …
Emmy: Stop.
Suit Monkey: Okay.
Emmy: Is this what we are now?
Suit Monkey: What?
Emmy: Phone sex buddies.
Suit Monkey: Do we have to label it?
Emmy: You can’t even commit to phone sex? You’re worse off than I thought.
