Review: Finding Our Forever – Brenda Novak

Review: Finding Our Forever – Brenda Novak

Finding Our Forever has some complex relationships, a lot of longing, a lot of love, and a little intrigue. It’s all set at a beautiful ranch away from the lights of the big city. The setting in Finding Our Forever is really nice, it’s a school for wayward young men, and because it’s kind of enclosed, it’s really more like a small town than anything else. Some teachers live on campus, as do all the students. The newest teacher, Cora, has more than one reason to want to be there, though. She has finally, after years of searching, found out who her biological mother is. And because her bio mom is the director of this school, she decided to apply for […]

Review : Anarchy Missing – J. A. Huss

Review : Anarchy Missing – J. A. Huss

Anarchy Missing is incredibly intense! Like wow – so much is happening in such a short time it’s like I’m out of breath, and at the same time, I just want more! It’s not all that easy to pick an exact genre for Anarchy Missing, as there are some sci-fi or paranormal elements, and it’s definitely urban, and its very hot. What else do you need to know, right? The overall plot didn’t advance too much in this instalment, but the pace was fast, and the character interactions were intense and filled with danger. I loved Lulu, she’s the kind of heroine I can get behind. She is strong, she is able to take a step back and try to […]

Review: The Night Mark – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Night Mark – Tiffany Reisz

The Night Mark deals with hope – how we need hope to move forward. To get out of bed in the morning. To care for ourselves and others. To care for our planet. The Night Mark has a magical feel to it, and a lot of that comes from Reisz’s excellent writing. It’s like a novel in a poem with a fantastical story in which realistic characters live their lives to the best of their abilities. Hope and love are strong themes, and I had to wipe away a few tears at the ending, because it was so sweet and tender, and I wanted to stay with the characters a little longer. I think what I love the most every […]

Review: For You – Kristen Ashley

Review: For You – Kristen Ashley

For You is simply excellent – romance, suspense, 2nd chances, friendships, small town – it’s ALL good I have always been a huge fan of second chance romances, and For You delivered a very delicious one! February and Alexander could have had it all. They seemed destined to be together and started dating in high school. Then, something happened, and February broke up with Alexander. She went on a wild streak, and ultimately married another man. After that marriage ended in disaster, February kind of ran away from home and went around the US working in bars. Never getting too close to anyone, until she gets called home to help her brother run the family bar. Once she is home, […]

Review: Breathe – Kristen Ashley

Review: Breathe – Kristen Ashley

Breathe was amazing! I think it’s the Colorado Mountain story that played with my feels the most! I cried. I laughed. And it was righteous! Not only did I stay up until after 3 am to finish Breathe, I had to message Brandee while I was reading because there was so much going on, and I knew she’d know straight away what I was talking about! Good thing we live in different time zones – at least this once it made me happy. For someone who usually rolls her eyes at ‘older’ virgins in her romance novels, I fell hard and quick for Faye! And she may have seemed very shy and reserved on the outside, but on the inside, […]

Review: Roman – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Roman – Sawyer Bennett

Roman showed a different aspect of the hockey club as well as the difficulty to live in that world, especially when the characters wanted to keep some private moments… private. I feel like I always say something about my big love for hockey players when I review a Cold Fury book, but it’s true! Roman made my toes curl in many ways. Of course the fact that he’s a bad boy didn’t make me blink even once. I’m not usually one for enforcers when it comes to hockey. They break up the game, and I think here in Europe, hockey is different from the way it’s played in the US. One thing I really enjoyed with Roman was that we got […]

Review: I’ll See You in Paris – Michelle Gable

Review: I’ll See You in Paris – Michelle Gable

I’ll See You in Paris intrigued me and made me curious, but it fell a little flat in the end. When I read the summary for I’ll See You in Paris, I thought I would get a pretty solid mystery, spanning over three decades, and jumping between the present and the past. There was a mystery, but it wasn’t all that mysterious, and while I enjoyed the beginning, the story dragged on, and I felt like both Annie and Laurel were doing their best to not share what they were up to. And that just didn’t work for me – this daughter and mother were supposed to be very close, however, Laurel had kept something very important a secret from […]

Review: Sting – Sandra Brown

Review: Sting – Sandra Brown

What a twisty turny mystery Sting was – there was no way for me to guess the who, the why or the how, and so the pages turned fast! It really is difficult to talk about Sting and not give anything away, because the mystery is so multi-layered and the characters kept their cards so very close to the chest. Jordie was in the worst predicament, going to meet with someone – hoping it might be her brother, only to witness a murder and then end up kidnapped. Because the narrator shared little bits of the characters’ story, kind of like the breadcrumbs Hansel and Gretel left behind. Finding the right crumbs and following them in the right direction proved […]

Review: Lady Luck – Kristen Ashley

Review: Lady Luck – Kristen Ashley

Lady Luck was more tender than the other stories in this series, both Ty and Lexie had been through hell, and it wasn’t over by a long shot. The beginning of Lady Luck showed me straight away that this was going to be a quite unconventional romance! Lexie and Ty were strangers, but somehow, Lexie had been persuaded to pick up Ty when he left prison after several year on the inside where he served time for murder. And she was to drive him wherever he wanted to go. Little did she know that Ty had planned to marry the woman whom he had arranged for to pick him up. And his first stop after prison was Las Vegas. Not […]

Review: The Turn – Kim Harrison

Review: The Turn – Kim Harrison

The Turn was very enlightening on many points, even as it brought me to question many others. There is something so very special about The Hollows, and reading more about what actually happened prior to the action in the main series was quite thrilling! The reason why humans were so afraid of tomatoes, and what happened to make the paranormals come out, so to speak. The Turn was more than ‘just’ a way to explain the world and those living in it, though. True to form, Harrison painted some very vivid characters who evolved in a storyline that was well done and quite complicated. And there were some sightings of characters who were part of the series as well. Trisk […]
