Today I’m participating in a blog tour for Cecy Robson’s Inseverable, book one in her new Carolina Beach series. This is, IMHO, something a bit different from her….
I don’t think I’ve read a story plot this deep or thought provoking as this one in a long, long time. My brain muscles are still un-cramping from all the thinking and flat out speed reading I’ve done in the last two days. This is just one of those stories that doesn’t have a good place to stop, regroup, and circle your thoughts back around.
Non-spoiler: If you don’t like love triangles, just don’t read this story.
Oh us silly women. We forgive waaaaay too easily. I love just about everything Karen Erickson (aka Monica Murphy) writes. I eat up her books for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – yummy 🙂 So I can honestly say that my ONLY complaint about Ignite is that our heroine needed a backbone. Let me explain with my completely biased but glowing review…
What happens when the most uptight, over-achieving, driven student in the senior class ends up getting drunk as a skunk and wakes up next to the school’s most notorious playboy? A whole lot of character growth, sprinked with sweet, tender family moments that make this contemporary romance an easy winner for a summer time quick read.
Even though it’s not out until October this year, I’m looking forward to reading this new series from Nichole Chase. I’ve wanted to read her books for a while now so this new series is a great place to start. And the cover is pretty to look at.
I’m not one to read girly, friendship-type books. I actually run away in the opposite direction from them. But when I picked up the review copy of The Unexpected Everything, I had no clue that ‘friendship’ was a pretty big part of the story’s plot. Turned out, it wasn’t that painful for me to endure.
I’ve been wanting to read Katee Robert for a while now. Don’t you just hate feeling like the last person to “know” when all your reading friends are reading an […]
The Last Boy and Girl in the World turned out to be different than what I expected from the synopsis. From the cute cover to the fun-loving teens having parties in the water-logged streets in the synopsis, this story sounded like it would be a light look at a serious time in a town’s transformation.
Laura Kaye has ended her Hard Ink series but it is living on, in part, in her new Raven Riders series. And even if you haven’t read any of the Hard Ink books, you will have no problem “fitting in” with this bike club.
I like Jennifer Dawson’s stories. I like them a lot. They are good.
Normally, I wouldn’t pick up a book that looks anything like this. The cover reminds of a woman’s contemporary novel and I’m just not drawn to that kind of drama. I need happy ever afters and I want them sweet and perfect.
Why the heck don’t I read more books by Kylie Scott. Seriously? I mean, she’s absolutely brilliant in the snark and witty banter department. I thought it was a fluke of the first book I read by her, Play. Turns out, not a fluke…
Kristen Proby is back with a new series surrounding five best friends who open a trendy restaurant in Portland, Oregon. It’s actually a brilliant idea, especially if you love “girlfriend” stories. Enter at your own “grammar” risk…
I’m a newbie to suspense and mysteries. I’m just not drawn to them like romance and fantasy. I read to relax, not get tied up in knots. But I […]
I wasn’t sure what to make of this new series by Sophie Jordan. What I mean to say is, guys in prison don’t really do it for me. But it was Sophie Jordan, it was a fresh new series so I took a chance… and I don’t regret it.
Are you looking for a well written “classic” small town romance? In the mood for classic romance tropes like opposites attract, secrets from the past coming to light, or just plain ‘ole starting over? Well, this story has them all and believe it or not, Ms. Bross made them all work together wonderfully.
I’m participating in this cover reveal because I’m a huge fan of Karen Erickson (aka Monica Murphy). This is the second book in her new Wildwood series 🙂 […]
I grabbed The Hurricane by R.J. Prescott because I’m always up for a “new to me” author and I saw the good reviews for this book. The story of a gym-rat boxer turned up-and-coming amateur boxer who falls for a reserved, shy girl running from a horrific past absolutely melted my heart. This is a story that is not easy to put down for too long.
It’s easy for me to sit here and write book reviews. I read a book, I take notes, I write what I think and feel. It’s not rocket science. When I have to write a negative review, though, I cringe… and hope no one starts stalking me.
I just couldn’t ignore this story. Oh, I tried. I saw the beautiful cover, read the synopsis, and thought, “Score!” But then I skimmed reviews and saw the dreaded cliffhanger and ‘story continued in book two’ dribble. I hung my head and walked away.
I wouldn’t normally have noticed this book except that a publisher introduced it in an email. I read the synopsis and thought, “This sounds so adorable and perfect for a […]
Brutal beginning, Ms. Ryan! I remember sitting in some session, some where, and the speaker noted that an author needs to hook a reader in the first chapter or the book has the potential to fail. On that point alone, Ms. Ryan ran away with the Stanley Cup, the Heisman, and the Super Bowl trophy in one fell swoop!
I am officially addicted to Elle Kennedy’s writing. She writes good 😉 Seriously, though, I had her Off-Campus series in my Top Ten books of 2015. Each book has been worth every cent I paid for it, probably more.
