Review: Now and Ten – Mira Lyn Kelly

Review: Now and Ten – Mira Lyn Kelly

Now and Then is a great second chance at love romances, and I had been looking forward to Ford’s story since I read the first installment in this series. Brynn and Ford had such amazing chemistry, and I loved getting to know them better. Ford and Brynn were dating in college, and Ford was sure they would get married and have children, even when their relationship was new. And they were great together, until they weren’t. Together anymore, that is. Brynn broke up with Ford by e-mail and just didn’t come back to college. When he called her, she told him she had found someone else. Fast forward a few years, and Ford the computer geek has several popular app […]

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Second-chance romances are the absolute best! And Once and Again was both nostalgic, sweet, hot and well done! Once and Again is filled with nostalgia, but there is also an underlying tension that isn’t all positive, especially in the beginning.

Years later, Carolyn is down on her luck, her father has lost all their money, and she’s working as an event organizor at the golf club […]

Review: Mercury Striking – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Mercury Striking – Rebecca Zanetti

Mercury Striking is a very powerful dystopia suspense novel, where most technology is down, and what is left of humanity is fighting against a horrible bacteria for survival. Fast paced, filled with suspense and distrust, Mercury Striking is among the best dystopia novels I have ever had the pleasure to read! Zanetti managed her world building by sharing the characters’ knowledge little by little, and in this bleak universe, only the very strong and courageous will be able to keep on going. Lynne Harmony has been on the run for a few months, with only one goal in mind – find a way to help people live with the virus without becoming senseless Rippers in the process. And to do […]

Audio Review: Closer – Dannika Dark

Audio Review: Closer – Dannika Dark

Even if Closer is set in the Mageri universe, which I know and love, it took me a while to invest with the story, since most of it happened over the span of just a few hours, and Kane and Caroline were the only characters. Closer is a strange little story, where most of the action happens inside of Caroline’s head, while she is unconscious. She’s not hallucinating, either, what happens is actually as reals as can be. Kane was on his way home, just needing the paper before he brought his beers home, when a stranger brushed by him and made him lose his last quarter. As a sensor, Kane could feel the man’s emotions, and also feel some […]
