Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Over the Edge ~ CD Reiss

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Over the Edge ~ CD Reiss

Lexxie and I read CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. Yep. We finished the series! Yay!! In our chat, we’ve tried to be as vague as possible so as not to spoil anything. 😉 There seemed to be no limit to what Greyson would do for Caden – for love. What I appreciated about this one act is how Reiss used it to create a role reversal of sorts. I loved that Caden had to step into Greyson’s shoes, protect her, fight for her, help her. And he felt inept at times but he continued because he loved her. How did you feel about Greyson’s act and how it affected […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Broken Edge ~ CD Reiss

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Broken Edge ~ CD Reiss

Lexxie and I are reading CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. We’re trying to be as vague as possible in our discussions so as not to spoil anything. 😉 Wow! In Broken Edge the tension continues to rise with the stakes getting higher. My instinct not to trust certain people was validated but with more people introduced, I don’t know who can be trusted. And that ending left me hanging from the broken edge. Oh my gosh! Yes, the stakes keep getting higher. I didn’t even know that was possible. There is nobody I can trust at all – I’m not even sure Greyson and Caden can be trusted at […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ On the Edge ~ CD Reiss

Lexxie and I are reading CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. We’re trying to be as vague as possible in our discussions so as not to spoil anything. 😉 On the Edge too me out onto the ledge and left me there. I honestly don’t know how Reiss took it up a notch but she totally did. It was an edge-of-my-seat read, keeping me guessing and turning in circles trying to figure it all out. And I’m still working on it, wifey. I agree, there was so much going on, and it was impossible to try to figure anything out. I just felt so bad for both Caden and Greyson. […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Rough Edge – CD Reiss

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Rough Edge – CD Reiss

Lexxie and I are reading CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. We’re trying to be as vague as possible in our discussions so as not to spoil anything. 😉 Oh wow – I think this series is going to kill me, wifey! After I finished the prequel (which was actually released after Rough Edge!) I was already intrigued and wanted more. But now – now, I know I’m going to binge the rest of this like a mad-woman. What did you think of Caden and Greyson in their civilian lives? I found this part of their romance to be both very dark and very sweet. It just may kill me […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Cutting Edge ~ CD Reiss

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Cutting Edge ~ CD Reiss

The Cutting Edge served to prove how adept at writing compelling stories Reiss is. She not only put me in a combat hospital in Balad by drawing images to vivid they were visceral, she also drew characters I’m completely invested in. This is my first series by Reiss, and I just don’t understand why I waited so long! I agree – those images were visceral, and the characters hooked me very quickly! I admit to going into The Cutting Edge blind, wifey. Reiss is an auto-buy so I didn’t even remember/know what the story was about when I started it. However, she gripped me immediately and didn’t let go. She delivered a compelling, at times gut-wrenching, at times humorous, at […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Good Time – Jana Aston

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Good Time – Jana Aston

Good Time was hilarious, don’t you think, Wifey? I was reading on the train back from Zurich this weekend, and I not only laughed out loud, I also snorted. Loudly. So that not only my daughter turned her head to look at me – other people on the train did as well. Payton was so funny – and she didn’t even mean to be, what did you think of her? Omigosh was Good Time hilarious!! I also giggle-snorted and I had to read parts aloud to Hubs because my reactions made him curious. Payton was funny without ever meaning to be. Being in her head, listening to her justify her actions to herself…I don’t know how anyone could NOT love […]

Review: The Accidentals – Sarina Bowen

Review: The Accidentals – Sarina Bowen

The Accidentals had everything I love in a romance. There was heartache, there was happiness, there were awkward reunions, and sharp humor. Plus, there was a whole lot of music! Story: The Accidentals is a masterpiece of feelings. It was also a different kind of romance, because the main story wasn’t about the romance – it was about family and loss. And it was also about finding what had seemed lost forever. Plus, the music made me swoon… Because music was a very important part of The Accidentals, and it added more layers to both the characters and the story itself. Rachel had been to hell and back, and living in a group home was not her idea of being […]

Review: The Ocean Between Us – Michelle Heard

Review: The Ocean Between Us – Michelle Heard

The Ocean Between Us dealt with quite a few very dark themes, and some of the things that happened made me cry with both sadness and anger. However, there was so much sweet to counteract the bad! Story: The Ocean Between us started with showing me that Emma had the childhood from hell! With a mother who abused her, both verbally and physically, she felt trapped. In a life she didn’t want. In a house where she wasn’t welcome. And in her mind, where she had started to believe everything her mom told her she was or wasn’t. Until one day she packed her bags and left South Africa for the US. Aiden was one of those characters that seemed […]

Review: Rebel Hard – Nalini Singh

Review: Rebel Hard – Nalini Singh

Rebel Hard was such a swoon-worthy story. Trying to stay within their families’ and culture’s tradition, Nayna and Raj had their work cut of for them! But what a beautiful path they were on! Story: Singh always makes me swoon – and she did so with Rebel Hard as well. I loved this peek into Indian customs in New Zealand. How many young people choose to follow traditions, but not completely to the letter. And while parents might seem to hold all the power, that was not always the case here. The two main characters were so relatable – even if I don’t really have much in common with them apart from being human. And that’s legacy to the writing. […]
