Sterling was an amazing read! Extremely well written, a completely new world that made sense little by little, and intriguing and very likeable characters! Zoë was a normal 29-year-old until one night she decided to take a short-cut home, where she was attacked and thought she died. She woke up in a body bag – completely panicked, after getting out of the bag and the ambulance, she ran like the devil was after her, until Adam found her. Adam and Zoë formed a tentative friendship, although she woke up looking completely different from what she looked before. There was also a whole lot of great humour, I laughed so hard in many places, I need to go through my status […]
*I got a free copy of Forever and a Day from the Grand Central via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Forever and a Day is my favorite Lucky Harbor novel, I like it even more than I liked At last! Grace is a little clumsy, but such a cute heroine anyway, and Scott is the forbidding doctor who thinks he doesn’t have time for love.
Chasing Magic had me going: Oh my goodness! Chessiebomb – you are so damaged, and I can’t help but loving you anyway. Chess is always fighting her demons, and most of the time, she truly does do the right thing. She tries so hard to be good, but underneath it all is that lack of self-worth that has been instilled in her since she was only a little girl. Even just the hinting of what she has been through is really heavy stuff, and I hope that one day, she will feel worthy of the love she and Terrible shares. Terrible is terribly wonderful (heh, see what I did there?) he is always on Chess’ side, and even comes to […]
*I received a free ARC of The Next Best Thing from Atria Books via netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* The Next Best Thing is simply delightful! It’s the only word I can use to describe it accurately. It tickled my funny bones, tugged at my heartstrings and made me root for Ruthie from the first sentence. All of the main characters seem so real to me that I wish they existed in real life. Ruthie needs a girlfriend, and I want to be that for her. Ruthie has gone through a lot more hard times than most people, but she never lets herself give up. When bad things happen, she will cry and mope, and then get herself […]
Tangle of Need left me in a tangle of confusion! I am not completely sure how I feel about this instalment. It took me several days to read, which is not usual for me, and I felt less connected with the characters as well. The story was really filler material, nothing really important happened, there was no huge show-down between the changelings and their enemies, and the great love story of Riaz and Adria didn’t hit me in the gut like most of the other couples have. I thought that both Riaz and Adria seemed pretty shallow and juvenile, which is strange when you think about what their position in the pack is. I think my main criticism is […]
*I received a free copy from the author in exchange of an honest review* Pure Healing started out really well, there are vampires, pure ones, humans, a very young pure Queen, a protector and a healer who uses some kind of magic, and has a very special way of sustaining herself. The premise is very interesting as it gives a new take on vampires and other mythical creatures we may or may not have heard about before.
Before I started reading Finding Magic: I need something to keep me from going into withdrawal while I wait for the next Downside Ghosts novel! A few minutes after I finished reading Finding Magic : YAY this was an awesome novella, and I usually don’t even like shorter stories all that much. The only thing I’m a little confused about is Jillian… I thought she and Chess had never met before in a later book. I think a re-read is what I need right now 🙂 Chess is even more damaged than I thought she was, and I feel so sorry for her! It was great to see how she acted before she became a ‘real’ church-witch, and how her relationship […]
*I received a free ARC of Amazing Grace from Netgalley* Amazing Grace is a sweet contemporary romance, which takes place in Hell, Texas. Max decides early on that Gracie is not a part of a human trafficking ring, but he still can’t tell her what his real job is. Something is not right at the Sherriff’s office, and he has to find out what it is. Max and Gracie play a little game of seduction, and although Gracie is very inexperienced and Max is a bit of a player, Gracie manages to catch him completely off guard. Some very hot moments ensue, I had to stop reading for a while when I was in public because I got a little […]
*I received an e-ARC of The Tycoon’s Secret Daughter from Netgalley* The Tycoon’s Secret Daughter completely grabbed me from the start! Max and Kate meeting in the lobby of the hospital, and just the few moments they spend there, where Kate realizes Max has stopped drinking, and Max realizes that he has a daughter – WOW! It is clear from the start that Max is still in love with Kate, although he is upset about only getting to know Trisha when she’s seven years old as well. The first meeting between father and daughter is pretty awkward, but it seems so real, exactly how I would imagine a grown man would interact with a little girl who’s his daughter, but […]
Luckily our server appears, so I am spared from telling him that the research we do is all related to human sexuality, and that our latest study found that women with clitorises and inch or more away from their vaginal openings did not desire or enjoy sex like their close-proximity peers. Uhm… OK… I guess? I am really wondering if this will be in any way relevant for the story. All of these quotes above are from the first 8% of the book, and I wonder if I will be able to actually feel the story at all! I get so distracted from the weird descriptions, the randomness of Leigh’s thoughts and by the prose as well. It all becomes […]
