Review: If You Only Knew – Kristan Higgins

Review: If You Only Knew – Kristan Higgins

If You Only Knew is a cute read which still tackles some serious and heavy subjects – I loved the strong friendship between the sisters. If You Only Knew is a contemporary romance that I would definitely tag as realistic fiction, as it follows two sisters – Jenny and Rachel – through some of the upheavals of adult life. How to deal with things when it’s impossible to run to mom and dad, how to stay strong when all one wants to do is to curl into a small ball […]

Review: Rock Wedding – Nalini Singh

Review: Rock Wedding – Nalini Singh

Rock Wedding is a toe-curlingly wonderful second-chance-at-love romance, and I loved everything about it! In the prior Rock Kiss books, Sarah and Abe were mentioned together, and it was obvious the end of their marriage happened because of Abe. In Rock Wedding, we finally got their full story, mostly told from Sarah’s perspective, and she totally and utterly broke my heart! She’s such a beautiful soul that has been through a lot of hard times and heartache, and she thought that with Abe, things would be different. And they were […]

Review: Leave Me – Gayle Forman

Review: Leave Me – Gayle Forman

Leave Me left me feeling a bit raw, with my emotions and my heartbeat just underneath the surface of my skin. In many ways, I was totally prepared to hate Maribeth, the main character in Leave Me. A 44-year-old mom of twins, a career woman, a wife, a friend, a daughter… One day, she was feeling out of sorts and it took until later the next day for her to figure out that she was having a heart attack. Which ended with her having open heart surgery and being out […]

Review: Anything You Want – Geoff Herbach

Review: Anything You Want – Geoff Herbach

Anything You Want is a strange little story where the narration reads like a stream of consciousness from Taco’s point of view. Taco is the kind of youth that seems too naive and simple-minded to function fully in the real world. My 14-year-old boy is much more mature and critical than Taco was! And the fast pace where Taco shared every single thought going through his mind at the time was exhausting! If I had been in a room with Taco, I think I would have asked him to shut […]

Review: Don’t Tempt Me – Lori Foster

Review: Don’t Tempt Me – Lori Foster

Don’t Tempt Me is all about new beginnings, courage, friendship and family. Sometimes, you grow up with a great family surrounding you, other times, you just have to make your own family – surround yourself by people you love and who love you back. The latter was the case for Honor in Don’t Tempt Me. Because she moved to stay closer to her dying grand-dad, Honor really didn’t have much tame for herself. Between her job, going to the nursery home in the middle of the night and trying to […]
