Sidekick Saturday is a weekly meme hosted by Jaclyn at JC’s Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn’t have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: • Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in this week’s type • Share a picture and information about the character • Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in • Please don’t include too many […]
*I received a free ARC of The Cowboy’s E-Mail Order Bride from One Acre Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review*. The Cowboy’s E-Mail Order Bride is a story filled with tangled messes, lies, new love, romance and promise of a better life. A quick read, it really appealed to me! When Ethan and Autumn meet, they are both keeping a secret, and they are both lying about what they wanted from each other. Ethan’s resolve to send Autumn back to New York on the next flight falters when he sees her – she is everything he has ever dreamt of in a woman. Autumn’s heart starts beating faster when her eyes lands on Ethan, but she is […]

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten books I liked more (or less) than anticipated. This week on Top Ten Tuesday, we share the Top Ten books we either liked more than we thought we would before starting a book, or the ones we thought had a little too much positive buzz. Top Ten Tuesdays is a fun meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we share our excitement for books, and I really like how this meme makes me think about the books I read, why I read them, and who to recommend my favorite reads to. So, here we go :
Twice Tempted is book #2 in the Night Prince series, and it continues showing how complex Vlad is, and what Leila needs to be happy living in his castle. I love how controlling Vlad has always seemed to me, yet with Leila there is something more soft and caring about him. But there are some concessions he won’t make though – saying ‘I love you’ is one of them. Showing the difference between Leila and Vlad based on their life experience, and Leila doesn’t have her powers anymore at the beginning of Twice Tempted, and it seems to her that since she lost her powers, Vlad has lost interest in her. She is sad, and doesn’t know what to do […]
