Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #161 ~ I Flipping Love You

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookworms. So many of the books we read have food or drinks in them, some we’d love to try, and others we’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab our logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to us in your own post.

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tyrant ~ T.M. Frazier

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tyrant ~ T.M. Frazier

After finishing Tyrant, again I’m left saying HOLY WOW! There was so much going on here – the action, the revelations…I was RIVETED! I told you so! Bwahahaha! I think you should just get the WHOLE series and binge-read it, like I did 😉  The way Frazier conveyed Doe’s memories as they came back was well done. I felt for the girl she’d been and it made sense she’d “clicked” so easily into the family she chose with King. How did the memories affect you given her circumstances? Oh my gosh! When she slowly remembered things, I died a little. I felt so bad for her – and even for those memories that were good, my heart broke. Doe was […]

Audio Review ~ Bachelor ~ Winter Renshaw

Audio Review ~ Bachelor ~ Winter Renshaw

I enjoyed my return visit to Rixton Falls but Bachelor was a bittersweet read. While I like the Rosewood family and was eager for Derek’s story, Bachelor left me wanting. There was just a little something missing in Derek and Serena’s relationship that kept their story from being stellar. After his wife left him for her plastic surgeon, Derek became a confirmed bachelor. His life revolved around his law practice, his daughter, and casual hookups when he could manage. Serena, recently split from her fiance after finding him in bed with two of her best friends, has been relegated to her family estate after some erratic behavior. She and Derek meet because he’s been designated her estate conservator. After spending […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ King ~ T.M. Frazier

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ King ~ T.M. Frazier

Wow, I did not know what I was getting myself into with King. I’d heard Frazier gave good anti-hero and…well, she certainly does. She grabbed me by the throat, yanked me into the story, and didn’t let go. King and Doe’s story was riveting and emotional and gritty and dark. And I enjoyed every bit.  I agree with you! King was awesome. And I had heard of Frazier, too. I actually chatted with her in London in February, in front of the hotel we were staying at for RARE. And I had no idea she was an author 😀 Dark and gritty can definitely be awesome. That prologue was something, wasn’t it? I loved what it said about King and at […]

Double Review ~ Dissolution & Infraction ~ K.I. Lynn

Double Review ~ Dissolution & Infraction ~ K.I. Lynn

Dissolution was a quick read but well worth the time. This little glimpse inside Nathan’s head – seeing how he felt after what he did to Lila – was enlightening. Understanding dawned over why he felt the need to act the way he did – especially considering how strong his feelings are – but I agreed with what Andrew and Caroline did. It was cowardly no matter the good intentions behind his actions. However, seeing Nathan’s pain and how he reacted at the end, I’m eager to see if he can redeem himself in Lila’s eyes…and mine. Onto Infraction.     Although Infraction didn’t pack quite the punch of Breach, I enjoyed having the front row seat as Nathan and […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Wild Like the Wind ~ Kristen Ashley

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Wild Like the Wind ~ Kristen Ashley

I’d always wanted Keely and Hound’s story and Wild Like the Wind was so well worth the wait! I agree! They both intrigued me – and Keely was always a little bit on the sidelines – present, but not really. And I was so curious about her. Hound seemed very mysterious, too – and he slayed me!   I’d always wanted the story of Black, the fallen Chaos brother who is tattooed on ALL the brothers, and his wife, Keely. I also wanted to story behind Hound’s dedication to Keely. What did you think of all KA shared about them? Oh. My. Gosh! I fell in love with them from the prologue! Because they were both so completely loyal. So […]

New Release Review ~ Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl ~ Karen Booth

New Release Review ~ Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl ~ Karen Booth

I first fell for Karen Booth’s storytelling in Bring Me Back, a heartwarming yarn spun around an older couple…characters closer to my age. That Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl also revolved around an older heroine and hero was therefore appealing. It’s also a second-chance romance. I’m a sucker for second chances and this one was served up lovingly. But Katherine’s story is about so much more than her second chance at romance. It’s about finding yourself, forgiveness, and realizing that while our past shapes us and how we look at life, it doesn’t define us. What Worked: Characters Booth excels are drawing relatable and engaging characters. I was immediately drawn to Katherine, her sister Amy, and Eamon. I was […]

Audio Review ~ Marry in Haste ~ Anne Gracie

Audio Review ~ Marry in Haste ~ Anne Gracie

Marry in Haste was a little slow to start for me but as it was all necessary for world building and the pace eventually picked up, it was all worth the wait. What I most loved about Marry in Haste was the characters. Cal – the new Lord Ashendon – made himself out to be a man caring only of his service to his country. While that is noble, he was tender-hearted as well, showing his half-sisters and niece kindness and love even if those things were foreign to him. Em – who’d served as his half-sisters’ teacher – had endured so much at the hands of one who should’ve shown her unconditional love. I admired her strength and resilience. […]
