Review: Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling #12) – Nalini Singh

Review: Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling #12) – Nalini Singh

Heart of Obsidian may just be my favorite book in the Psy-Changeling series. I loved learning more about Kaleb, and Sahara was totally awesome as well. The overall plot of the series moved along very nicely as well, and we even found out who the Ghost is! The intricate relationships between some of the psy and the changeling packs, as well as the war with pure-psy continued, and there were quite a few things that caught me completely off guard. Heart of Obsidian starts really strong! With Kaleb kidnapping a woman out of a high security place, and for once, he actually brings someone to his home outside of Moscow. It is unclear at first why he takes the woman, […]

Review: Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths #1) – K. A. Tucker

Yeah, even the readers need to think about breathing while reading Ten Tiny Breaths, that’s for sure. Between forgetting to breathe in places because I just wanted Kacey to be OK, and not being able to breathe because I was ugly-crying so hard it was impossible I figure the title is one of the more apt titles I’ve seen in a long time! Ten Tiny Breaths start with Kayce and Olivia fleeing their aunt and uncle’s house with only one suitcase each, after their uncle had come into Olivia’s room during the night, acting inappropriately. Kacye swore she would take care of her sister, making sure she could finish high-school and live her dream by going to Princeton just like […]

Review: Head over Heels – Cindy Procter-King

*I received a free ARC of Head over Heels from Amber Quill Press LLC via Netgalley in exhcange of an honest review* Head over Heels is a contemporary romance, featuring Magee (whose name we’re told how to pronounce several times…) and Justin.

Review: The Other Side of Us – Sarah Mayberry

Review: The Other Side of Us – Sarah Mayberry

When I picked up The Other Side of Us for free on amazon, I thought I’d get a light, slick romance. Something hot that would just take a couple of hours to read, then be forgotten… What I got was a profound story about two broken characters, a beautiful narrative about hope, fighting for your life, and love. I fell in love with both Oliver and MacKenzie, they were both trying to patch their lives back together, and their first meeting really didn’t go well. However, they were both willing to look past that first meeting, and when they started to get to know each other they realized that having someone they could share their doubts and dreams with was […]

Review: Tight Quarters (Strangers on a Train) – Samantha Hunter

Review: Tight Quarters (Strangers on a Train) – Samantha Hunter

Tight Quarters is the fourth story I have read in the Strangers on a Train series by different authors. It is quite different from the other books in this series, because the characters, Reid and Brenna, both have something difficult to deal with. Brenna has difficulties just boarding the train, and when Reid follows her all the way to her berth, she almost flips out. She uses her key to open the door, then close it behind her. When Reid then proceeds to open the door with his own key, she hides in a corner, and has no idea what to do. For just one person, the berth has more than enough room, but put a bulky ex-cop in there […]
