Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Storm ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Storm ~ Michelle Mankin

Well, wifey, I feel MMankin has outdone herself with Storm. She delivered everything I’ve come to expect from her and more! My fingers are crossed for books for Saber, Shield, and Cork. 😉 Oh my gosh, I so agree! It was so, so good. I loved every single word, lyric, look, and touch. It was really well written, and the characters were out of this world.   I admired how MMankin built the story of Lotus and Storm being childhood friends. They both experienced traumatic things in their young lives and were anchors for each other. Eventually, though, Storm had to leave. His leaving was realistically portrayed and I appreciated even more how MMankin brought Lotus and Storm back together. […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #6 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #6 ~ Michelle Mankin

What a wonderful way to wrap-up this unique series. Rock F*ck Club is all about empowering women with the ability to embrace their sexuality without fear of judgement. Each woman in the series went about their journey in different ways but all managed to find real love despite trials and tribulations along the way. This final story once again follows Josephine and Gale (my favorite couple in the series!) as they navigate past and present obstacles on their way to a future together. Jo and Gale are my favorite couple in the series, too, and I loved to see more of them here. I think this ending truly made sense, and I’m so happy Mankin went there.   I have […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Wish ~ Michelle Mankin @MichelleMankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Wish ~ Michelle Mankin  @MichelleMankin

The second installment in this series, The Right Wish was even more emotional and impactful than its predecessor. Witnessing all Camaro is and how much she gives to others, it was more than a little moving to see Brad work at convincing her she was worthy of love…his love. *swoon* I agree! Cam was such a heartfelt heroine. And she truly did believe her late mother’s words about giving joy to others was the greatest joy of all. She was so good with everyone she came in contact with.   Man, I can’t imagine having to live life as Cam had. Lying about who she was, living in shelters, selling her body… it was no wonder her self-esteem was in […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #5 ~ Michelle Mankin

Holy WOW! I don’t even know where to start with Rock F*ck Club #5. I was so very eager for Gale’s story and I’m ecstatic I got it. Before this one, I would have said #3 was my fav. But now I’m all about Gale and Jo!! I agree – Gale and Jo were my favorites! And I just loved how dark Jo’s past was, but she still managed to move forward and try to find something she could be happy doing. While also honoring her past. Let’s start with Jo. MMankin kept her mysterious. We knew and/or learned enough about her to understand she was fiercely loyal to those she loves. We also knew she was a fighter, a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #4 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #4 ~ Michelle Mankin

Rock F*ck Club reads like a reality TV show and therefore picks back up right where we left off. I admire how MMankin uses this format to convey the reality of the journey these women are on. I’m certain she never considered this series would become so relevant. You’re very right! It does read like reality TV show, and also the back-stage of said show. I love how these women just want to take charge of their own lives, and how the money they get from the show is part of the way they get that. I knew with Marsha’s past, her road to happiness with Ivan wasn’t going to be smooth. I appreciated how MMankin kept it real – […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Island Side ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Island Side ~ Michelle Mankin

Wow! I couldn’t have asked for a better ending for Hollie & Diesel or for this series. Mankin has a way of developing these complex, genuine, and flawed characters that you can’t help but root for. And watching them grow as they struggle to overcome or dig deep to find their inner strength…it’s beautiful. Mankin is also gifted at sharing her love of the ocean, surfing, rock music and the musicians who make it through her lovely prose. Her words paint vivid images of the landscape as well as visceral emotions. I’m sad to see this series end because I’m going to miss these characters! I’m sad it’s over, too – and I think I’ll do a re-read before BookBonanza, […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ High Tide ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ High Tide ~ Michelle Mankin

Oh my! High Tide was akin to a roller coaster ride. It started kinda slowly, making its way around those warm-up curves and dips. Things changed once we hit that big hill, building tension and anxiety. Once we went over? Well all I can say is you better hang on! There is so much I want to say about High Tide but can’t because it would spoil the story. And this is one to be experienced, I think. It definitely is a story to be experienced, and it’s going to be hard to chat about this one and still keep everyone reading our review from being spoiled… but we’ll manage, I’m sure 😉  As I said, things started off a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Man ~ Michelle Mankin @MichelleMankin

I just adored The Right Man! It was emotional, romantic, and if I hadn’t already believe that love could conquer all, Rush and Jewel would have convinced me. 🙂 I loved it, too! It was such a beautiful story, and I loved Rush and Jewel to pieces, wifey! They were perfect in their roles, and they were so ready to find love!   Rush was the epitome of a rock star asshole when we first meet him. But it didn’t take long to see his disillusionment with this current status.The arrogance was his armor, don’t you think? I felt for him almost immediately. A lost and lonely boy – surrounded by people but isolated nonetheless. That was my impression anyway. […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review/Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #157 ~ Rock F*ck Club #3 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review/Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #157 ~ Rock F*ck Club #3 ~ Michelle Mankin

Holy Hotness! I do believe Rock F*ck Club #3 is Mankin’s hottest book to date! It had to up the ante to follow up Raven and Lucky’s story and Mankin delivered! Mankin always takes on weighty topics and Rock F*ck Club is no exception. How do you think she did with exploring a woman’s right to explore her sexuality, self-worth, and true friendship? I think she did really well! And that’s mostly because she showed us that it’s still a struggle. I think in many cases, women have to struggle no matter if they are dealing with a man or a woman. I also enjoyed how part of this story was a true eye-opener to Marsha. Who had kind of […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #2 ~ Michelle Mankin

Since both Lexxie and I are fans of #girlpower we figured MMankin’s Rock F*ck Club #2 was a great way to kick off our joint venture. We hope y’all enjoy our chat! And keep an eye on our Facebook page today…there might be a giveaway! 😉 B: What did you think about how MMankin presented Rock F*ck Club #2? The end-of-season perspective? The challenges Lucky and Raven were facing and how they were dealing with them? L: I really found the after-filming to be very interesting. Especially because so much had changed between Lucky and Raven. And her outlook on life and relationships had done a full 180. It was also good to see that while she was worried about […]
