Cheater

Cheater

There aren’t many authors I have on pre-order. In fact, I can count them on one hand. But Rachel Van Dyken is one of them. And Cheater, her newest release and the first book in the Curious Liaison’s series, is a perfect example of why.   Okay, I should start by saying I hated Lucas Thorn. I mean, we know from the title of the book what kind of guy he is, right? Then we flip it over (which, admittedly, I didn’t do until after I’d purchased the book because I’m fearless that way) and our worst fears are not […]

The Bachelor Auction

The Bachelor Auction

You just can’t go wrong with Rachel Van Dyken. I’ve read a few of her books. Unfortunately, not all of my reviews survived the migration from Blogger to WordPress, but that’s a different blog post. The point is, I’ve enjoyed all her books. And the Bachelor Auction was no exception.   First lines: He’s senile. Last night he asked if I believed in unicorns.   The Bachelor Auction is a modern day take on the Cinderella fairy tale. And while Van Dyken takes some liberties here and there, changing things a little to make the story work, it was very […]

Queen of Shadows

Queen of Shadows

Queen of Shadows is the fourth book in Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series. The series has quickly become one of my favorites—along with thousands of other readers. I enjoyed Queen of Shadows more than I did Heir of Fire, book three. The action and intrigue starts on page one and doesn’t let up. It’s go, go, go. There’s a prison break, a courtesan and her young protégé saved, monsters killed, a prince , witches tortured, magic, a queen, kings, death, life, hope, and on, and on.   Characters, in my opinion, are one of the best aspects in […]

Lady Be Good

Lady Be Good

I was pleasantly surprised by Meredith Duran’s Lady Be Good. I haven’t read many historical romances in the last ten years or so. I’m not sure why. I used to read them a lot as a teen and in my twenties. But for some reason I just… stopped. I think It probably has a lot to do with writing YA and NA. That’s what I tend to read.  Which is a pity because I used to enjoy historical romances quite a bit.   I love the way the language flows, proper and almost stiff, but beautiful at the same time.

Travelers by Meradeth Houston

Travelers by Meradeth Houston

This is a hard review to write. Although I finished Travelers some time ago, I haven’t been able to write my review. There are a few reasons for this, mainly, however, I think it is because I’m struggling with how to classify the story. It’s a young adult romance… You’re still the Sienna I love. You could have come from the other side of the planet, or spoken any other language, and I’d still love you. Because it’ll always be you. The core of who you are is the same, and that’s what I love. ~Henry Sienna and Henry are […]

Forever Bound

Forever Bound

When I was asked to help promote the release of Forever Bound, I was thrilled. When I was given the opportunity to review it, I was over the top ecstatic! I’ve read the other books in the Forever series by Deanna Roy and really enjoyed them, so I had high expectations when I started reading. Deanna not only met those expectations, she surpassed them!   Now, you know I don’t do plot summaries in my reviews. A book should be enjoyed by the reader, as the author intended—not summed up by a blogger. This takes away from the experience of […]

Never Forgotten Series, by Kelly Risser

Never Forgotten Series, by Kelly Risser

Okay, I know I’ve been MIA lately. A lot of stuff is going on, plus I’m trying to edit and write, so my time just disappears. I really wish there was an extra day in the week so I could get stuff done… you know, things like cleaning house (ugh!) and feeding my family. They get cranky when they don’t eat. 🙂 Anyway, I hope to be back to normal and posting like always. Today I have something awesome to share. The final book in the Never Forgotten Series, by Kelly Risser, is available TOMORROW!!  ALWAYS REMEMBERED by Kelly Risser […]

Caged Warrior

Caged Warrior

“A gritty, dirty look into the violent world of underground fighting and the dynamics of a family torn apart by a father’s determination to thrust his son into the cage.”   This is a somewhat difficult review to write. “Caged Warrior” isn’t the type of book I would normally pick out for myself. If I hadn’t been given an ARC to review, I probably would never have read the book. However, I’m so glad I was given the opportunity to review this title.   The author, Alan Sitomer, has an incredibly strong voice. The main character, McCutcheon, is written extremely […]

Going Long

Going Long

I loved “Waiting on the Sidelines” and I was really excited when I was given the chance to review the sequel “Going Long,” which picks up Nolan and Reed’s story a couple years into college. The book did not disappoint. There were so many emotional moments and ups and downs throughout. There were times I wanted to toss my Kindle across the room I got so frustrated with some of the things they did…or didn’t do.   Ginger Scott has a way of writing real people, people who have insecurities about themselves and how they view themselves. Nolan is a […]

Stir Me Up

Stir Me Up

*Easily one of my favorites this year!*   I have to start out by saying I really enjoyed “Stir Me Up” by Sabrina Elkins much more than I thought I would. When I first began reading I had a slight disconnect with the characters and was worried it would continue throughout the book. I’m so glad I rarely put a book down without finishing it, because I would have missed out on a great story with so much depth.   Yes, it’s a love story. Cami and Julian are great characters and their love story is poignant and gives you […]

Lengths

Lengths

I don’t know what I expected when I started reading Lengths, but it sure wasn’t that it would blow me away. I loved the book. It’s that simple. It is an awesome story of guilt, learning to forgive oneself, the power of love, and learning to accept and rely on the people who love you for who you are—faults and all. Even when the faults you think you have aren’t really faults at all. The writing style was excellent. I loved it. It fit the characters personalities and I could picture them through the prose the authors used. The dual […]
