Audio Review: Reap The Wind – Karen Chance

Audio Review: Reap The Wind – Karen Chance

Reap the Wind is extremely fast-paced, and so much is going on both in Cassie’s world and in other places and times… The overall storyline in Reap the Wind didn’t cover as much as I had expected, especially with everything that happened! Cassie traveled a lot through space and time, in order to save people, and herself, and to figure out more about her power. She also had more help in this story than in the prior ones, and that was certainly a relief. I felt almost frantic while listening, because there is a lot to cover, even if most of that has to do with Cassie herself. I loved the interactions between Cassie and her very own acolytes, because […]

Review: Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy: Part 1 – Shiloh Walker

Review: Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy: Part 1 – Shiloh Walker

Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy was delicious and intriguing, as Walker always manages to include very complex characters, even in her shorter stories. I don’t know how she does it, but Walker manages to draw me in from the start, and Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy is intriguing, to say the least. Both Ella and Sean are fleshed out and realistic, even if there is an air of mystery surrounding both of them. Ella is accomplished, at least on the outside, she has an organization to help women in trouble, and she’ll soon open up a safe haven for them to help them, the same way she was helped by her mentor in the past. However, beneath the […]

Review: Someone Else’s Love Letter – Deborah Blumenthal

Review: Someone Else’s Love Letter – Deborah Blumenthal

Someone Else’s Love Letter had a great premise, but I never felt like I became a part of the story of fully invested in the characters. I fell in love with the premise of Someone Else’s Love Letter as soon as I read the summary, and at the very beginning of the story I was a happy reader indeed! Sage seemed to have everything going for her, and she was determined to figure out who had written the love letter she found in the back of a cab. The story quickly turned into a sort of puzzle where there seems to be either some pieces too many, or a few pieces short in some ways. There are a lot of […]

Review: A Girl’s Guide to Moving On – Debbie Macomber

Review: A Girl’s Guide to Moving On – Debbie Macomber

A Girl’s Guide to Moving On is a sweet, tender and sometimes sad story about hope. And about love. And how to move on after a divorce. Picking ones life back up and fit the pieces together after a divorce can be harder than it seems, and for both Nichole and Leanne, the new beginning was emotionally difficult. A Girl’s Guide to Moving On started with the two of them needing something to help them get back into the world once more, and so they made a list of things they should do. Let go, help others to help themselves, love themselves so they could love others as well. The relationship between Nichole and Leanne was the most honest and […]

Review: Fully Ignited – Shannon Stacey

Review: Fully Ignited – Shannon Stacey

Fully Ignited was hot, tender, a bit complicated and very sweet. One of the things I loved the most in Fully Ignited was the innuendos made with food… And I got at least two great quotes for future Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts posts thanks to the sexiness of those. Both Jamie and Scott were great characters to follow in their adventures as firefighters, and it was refreshing to see a female LT, who was strong, confident and very competent. Neither of them wanted a romance at the workplace, though, but their attraction proved impossible for them to resist. However, Jamie’s job with Scott’s company was temporary, and so would their forbidden romance be. I also really enjoyed that Fully […]

Review: Rock – J.A. Huss

Review: Rock – J.A. Huss

My mind is blown! Completely, utterly blown. Rock is even more twisted than Huss’ other stories, and I was riveted to my kindle today, unable to stop reading until I got to the bottom of all the mysteries. Huss definitely blew me away with this story! Until the very end, I had no idea what was going on, or what would happen next, and I was just as anxious as Rock was to figure things out. There was so much heartache and darkness, but at the same time, RK was so driven. He was filled with red-hot anger at the beginning, and he really didn’t understand what was going on. And I didn’t either. However, I was immediately drawn into […]

Review: Nobody But You – Jill Shalvis

Review: Nobody But You – Jill Shalvis

WOW – Shalvis has outdone herself with Nobody But You! Jacob and Sophie are such great characters, even if they were both pretty closed off to the world at the beginning of the story. Sweet, tender, sexy, humourous and sometimes a little sad, I couldn’t stop reading, and I loved every moment. I really didn’t think any of the Kincaid siblings would appeal to me more than Hud did, but Jacob managed to steal the first place in my reading heart! Because he was a little bit broken from the war, but also because he was very sensitive and straight-forward, I fell for him even faster than Sophie did! Nobody But You is a beautiful love story, and I have […]

Review: Another Day – David Levithan

Review: Another Day – David Levithan

Another Day is the other side of Every Day, the story seen from Rhiannon’s perspective, and all that happens after she meets A. While Another Day is mostly the same story as Every Day, there are some differences as well, as the readers see some of the things that happen to Rhiannon when she’s not with A. All her self-doubts and the choices she makes made more sense to me when I was inside her head, as opposed to reading everything from A’s perspective. I didn’t enjoy Rhiannon as much as I enjoyed A, though, and I think that may be because where A was selfless most of the time, Rhiannon was much more selfish. Not all the time, but […]

Review: Highland Awakening – Jennifer Haymore

Review: Highland Awakening – Jennifer Haymore

I loved the beginning of Highland Awakening, but after a while, it became almost too steamy for a historical romance, and that’s really something I never thought I’d say! Esme and Cam both intrigued me from the start of Highland Awakening, their first meeting happened in a whorehouse, where Cam was guarding a lord, and Esme was suddenly left alone with him in an antechamber… At first, I had no idea what Esme was doing there, and neither did Cam, but their chemistry flared from that first meeting, and hot kisses ensued. Their next meeting was at a dinner party at Esme’s brother’s – the Duke of Trent – house, and that was when Cam was well and truly hooked. […]

Review: Firstlife – Gena Showalter

Review: Firstlife – Gena Showalter

Firstlife is set in a unique world with very strong mythology and factions fighting each other for power over the realms, not only in the first life, but in the ever life as well. In the very complex universe of Firstlife, there is a lot of darkness, and Ten’s story starts with horror. She’s a prisoner in an asylum, where her parents have sent her in order to make her sign her everlife with Myriad. She, however, wants to make her own choice, and she still isn’t sure if Myriad or Troika will be the best place to spend the rest of her existence. War between the two realms doesn’t make her decision any easier, and even in the asylum, […]
