6 Stars for Forever & Always (The Ever Trilogy #1) by Jasinda Wilder

6 Stars for Forever & Always (The Ever Trilogy #1) by Jasinda Wilder

Oh Holy Hell! I need to go find a rock to crawl under and cry for …. Eternity! J.W., you have effectively ripped my heart to shreds… This is one of the most well-written books I have ever read, and I devoured it in less than 12 hours, I even did some sleeping, albeit restlessly, during that time. I’m going to go find some Prozac or Xanax before I read the second book…I know I’m going to need it!

5 Stars for Be with Me (Wait for You #2) by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

5 Stars for Be with Me (Wait for You #2) by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

I’m doing the happy dance here! I LOVED it. I wanted Tess and Jase’s story ever since Wait for You and let me tell you J. Lynn delivered in a big way! Jase and Tess are fully developed hero and heroine whose lives take us on two separate journeys, yet intertwine into one wonderful HEA. The writing is wonderfully descriptive and emotive. A hummingbird took flight in my chest, bouncing around like it was going to peck it’s way out of me as a warm breeze picked up, stirring the hairs that had escaped my ponytail. This is what I look for […]

3 1/2 Stars for Ready to Fall by Daisy Prescott

3 1/2 Stars for Ready to Fall by Daisy Prescott

3 1/2 stars for this lumberjack book. It was a simple, sweet story about a soon to be divorced woman who meets a sexy, single lumberjack. The two meet when she, Dianne, nearly burns her rental down, but is saved as he, John, the next door neighbor, comes to the rescue. It is written from the male POV. I didn’t find the male POV believable. It was too feminine. The plot was solid, and held together throughout the book. The characters were developed fairly well, they weren’t emotionally deep, but you knew who they were and what they were doing […]

5 Stars for Coming Home by Priscilla Glenn

5 Stars for Coming Home by Priscilla Glenn

This is the kind of book that grabs hold of you from the first word and doesn’t let go even after you have read the last word. With the plot and characters so thoroughly and richly developed, and the writing so beautifully detailed, Glenn submerges her readers into the world that is Leah and Danny. You have no choice but to dive in, hold your breath and wait to come up for air. Because this book takes you on an emotional journey right along with the characters. I laughed, because it is incredibly funny and witty. I swooned, because it […]

5 Stars for Saving Quinton (Nova #2) by Jessica Sorensen

5 Stars for Saving Quinton (Nova #2) by Jessica Sorensen

“Nova was the light and I was stuck in the shadows all the time except for a few moments when she touched me, kissed me, let me touch her, and I couldn’t avoid her light.” Saving Quinton, is the heart breaking follow-up to Breaking Nova. And, wow, what a freaking follow-up! This is where Jessica Sorenson excels. These two books are not romance. They are about life’s struggles. They are about how we handle pain, devastating loss, and feelings of rejection and loneliness. While this book gives us a glimpse inside Dylan and Delilah’s life, the focus is mainly on […]

3 1/2 to 4 Stars for Abandon (Shattered Hearts #3.5) by Cassia Leo

3 1/2 to 4 Stars for Abandon (Shattered Hearts #3.5) by Cassia Leo

3 1/2 to 4 stars for this heart-wrenching tale of Tristan and Senia. “You can’t let your past define your future.” Tristan’s story was hard to read. He had a horrible childhood of abuse. I did not expect it. And to be honest, had I known, I’m not sure I would have read the book. That being said, his past lends insight into his behavior in Bring Me Home. This is given in Tristan’s POV. It is about his relationship with Senia, the pending death of his grandmother, and being forced to face the abuse he suffered as a child. […]

5 Stars for Intermission (The Bridge #2) by Ashley Pullo

5 Stars for Intermission (The Bridge #2) by Ashley Pullo

Holy crap! You have to read this book, like NOW. This is the follow-up to The Ballad. I want to shout from my roof top about how much these two books intrigued me, but I can’t because my house isn’t big enough, so standing on the roof wouldn’t do any good. And failing to get the word out isn’t an option here. When I wrote my review on The Ballad, I wrote that Ashley Pullo was an author to watch. And with this collection of Novelette’s, she did not disappoint or make me a liar. Here’s the thing, Intermission is […]
